*Quietly relaunches comic*
….for my wacom tablet is dead. My oldest one, that is. My newer one broke very quickly, though it was an awesome tablet (intuos 4) and was ridiculously expensive to fix. My oldest one, the one I bought in highschool that has a half-melted pen, still worked for a few years after… but alas.
That said, there won’t be another Halflight page til I get a new one. I’m shopping around, if anybody has reasonably-priced suggestions do let me know in the comments. If you want to help fund Halflight-related things like printing and tablet-buying, AND you want your very own copy of Halflight… you’re in luck! Print versions are now available in our shiny new store. It’s up at the top right hand corner of the website, and the first twenty one purchases will get a sketch by yours truly of a Halflight character!
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!
