Just a reminder, I’m away from the internet until the middle of next week as of now-ish. Updates will continue as normal, but extra pages will NOT begin until May 5th. Thank you to everyone who’s already donated! It means a lot to me and allows me to eat three square meals a week.
First, I’m tweaking a few of the art assets I use for the comic. So if something you’ve seen a hundred times before suddenly looks slightly different from this point on, it’s not a plot point and you don’t need to speculate as to its meaning. Just because I only have to draw everything once doesn’t mean I always get it right the first time. This will probably happen in between future story arcs as well.
Second, the goal for this donation drive is higher than last time. This will also happen again in the future, but only so long as the donation drives keep getting destroyed (like last time; 25 hours to completion). If I see that my readers are having a hard time coming up with the money, I won’t increase the goal next time. Simple as that. Donating is voluntary, all the pages you’d be getting early will still be posted later on even if I don’t make a dime.
Third, I won’t be posted any extra updates this weekend, even should they be paid for by then. I’m going back to my cottage for a few days (that’s where I was on vacation before) for groundskeeping purposes and I’d rather not scramble to get a bunch of new resources drawn in advance. The regular comic updates will continue as normal, of course, and extra paid-for updates will begin to show up on the 5th of May.
Fourth and finally, I’m going to be at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival. I won’t have a table or be selling anything, but I will be there, somewhere, on one of the two days it runs, wandering around with my friend and checking out the work of people more talented by myself. If you happen to be there and see a guy who looks like my forum avatar wearing a Homestuck Karkat shirt, that’s me. Say hi if you like. I’m friendlier than I look (and act).
Please follow every single link in the above paragraph or else a monster will get you.
I finally got around to putting together that PDF full of all those dominated animal stats, including the horse which is the only one I haven’t posted yet. You can find it through the Extras page, or through this link right here.
I’d also like to let you know that the update schedule is going to change very slightly and very temporarily. Specifically, there will be an update this Saturday, but not the following Monday. This is so you won’t have to wait through the weekend to see the concluding page of Arc 2. Arc 3 begins on Tuesday, and with it a new donation drive. Good thing I just delivered the last of the extras I promised as part of the first donation drive before asking for more money, otherwise I’d be an asshole.
Thanks for your continuing interest in my nonsense, everyone!
I’m back from vacation! I had a good time. Sometimes a week without internet is a really good thing to have. I did have a laptop though, so I was able to get some work done on the comic. I also fed a fox some leftover dinner. He ate it and then shit in the dish.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that now that I’m back things will be getting back to the way they were, which is the way they are, because nothing changed at all.
My news posts are INCREDIBLY important, you know.
I’m off on vacation next week with no internet access, but the comic will go on uninterrupted. Unless of course something goes wrong with my update thingy and I can’t fix it until I get back, in which case it’s more like YOU guys get a vacation and once you get back you’ll have a backlog of updates waiting for you. In fact, I might just SABOTAGE my update thingy so as to give all my readers a week’s vacation! No, really, you deserve it.
See you guys again soon!
