Some stuff happens here.
My first con with Halflight! It was a great experience. The print copies arrived a day before the con and they looked great! It’s so cool to have art you create digitally in a form that you can hold in your hands… trust me I was glowing when I got them haha. My awesome mother cosplayed with me *and* helped me man the table for the two day convention. I met so many nice people, and trust me, there were a lot of people there! And talented artists too. I overheard someone saying that the focus of this particular con is almost always more on the art and I really believe it.
I think one of my favorite parts of the con was seeing all the families of multigenerational geeks dressed up or supporting each other. The overall attitude everyone had was really optimistic and friendly. <3 And the comic got some interest so that’s good too. I was there to spread the word for the most part, because really I’m not very good at promotion… so if you really like the comic, tell a friend who might be interested!
I’m going to try to have a store set up soon so that everyone can buy the printed copies if they want, or buttons or prints. My webmaster has never done one before so we shall see. ^^; Anyway, I’ll keep y’all updated on what cons I might go to in the future, it was too fun not to do again!
The next page will be up sometime this weekend, but meanwhile, I was hoping you guys could give me some input. I’ve been thinking about making some merchandise available, for anyone who might possibly want it, but I wanted to hear from you all first to see what you’d be interested in.
Hullo~ with plans to start doing more promotion once I’m into chapter 3, I decided, mostly for the fun of it, to add a voting button.
What does this mean? Well, if you like my comic and want to vote on it, you can!
So there you go.
There’s links to a few different sizes of banner in that section now, so if you want to link to me, feel free to take one.
I’m still here, alive and kicking. With full time work, regularly scheduled updates are currently beyond my power, but I’m hoping to change that in the near future. The main problem, you see, is the coloring – each page is like a complex painting, right now, and I’m trying to slowly simplify the coloring style. We’ll see to what degree that extends to – if there are any major jumps, I’ll wait to the next chapter to do them.
If you were curious, 0nly the very beginning of this story takes place at the University. The rest traverses a wide range of settings and locations – most of which are just not as ornate. We may even get into telling another character’s intersecting story at some point – we’ll have to see.
Thanks for reading, as always – leave your thoughts or ideas or questions in the comments where I can see them!
Hi, all. I took a break between chapters for the holidays, and do do a little reassessing of what I’m doing with this project. I’m still going to continue with it, never fear! But some changes are going to occur. For one, I work a job now that has me staring at a computer screen for 8-12 hours straight, five days a week, every week. That makes it hard to spend another 12 hours a week staring at a screen to do two pages.
I decided the best option would be to go down to one page a week for an update schedule. It means the story won’t be moving as fast, but there won’t be any big drop in quality, and I’ll have time to really focus on making it great.
It also leaves me more open for side projects – one that I’ll be starting soon and linking here, illustrating a brilliant retelling of Gawain and the Green Knight.
Anyway, I think I’ll be moving updates to fridays only. Expect a brand new page this friday!
