Hi everyone! This is just to announce that Chapter 3 of The Otherknown has a definite date now and will begin posting here on Jeeves January 28th (Saturday), and also on the main site on Wednesday the 25th (ooo, aaah)! Hope to see you then!
Hi everyone! Long time since I last made a news post, but the new SJ site update makes those things a bit more prominent, so here we are! Here's an update with some recent (and upcoming!) things with the comic:
-I've already begun replacing a few of the original pages with updated versions. This is the evil demon known in webcomic artist parlance as "redraws" (boo, hiss). I'm only giving the full redraw treatment to a few pages, though! This is just something I've wanted to do for a while, in order to retain new readers who might be a bit put-off by the original art. Not that it was bad, but I think the new ones are much better! At some point all of chapter 1 will be standardized re: font and bubbles, too.
-Chapter 3 is still coming up towards the end of this month! I already have the beginning few pages done. Just giving myself time to work through my hiatus wishlist (see above) first!
-New theme! Old one was a bit wonky with a few of the edits I'd made and I just didn't feel like tampering with it. I like this new one! (and yes, the new banner takes you to Otherknown's own .com url... I realize it's a bit sneaky, but I did want to have an easy link to the website, which I think will be one update ahead of the SmackJeeves one! I'll... try and be better at updating both :P)
-Who else loves that great big site spotlight banner in the new SJ? ...I'm not just saying that cos I get to see Chandra on the front page sometimes, honest!
We are back to a page a week for December (as opposed to going on a two-week hiatus at the end of the month, due to holiday plans)! The new pages will go up on Saturdays. Double updates will probably return in January. Thank you!
Hey guys! There may not be any updates this weekend (although the pages themselves are almost done) because, long story short, my hard drive has given up on life. The corruption and errors on the disk have reached photoshop and now it corrupts every file it opens. Thankfully I do compulsive online backups so *thumbs up*
Real great timing since for once I actually had ample time to work on this comic... lol. (Real great timing in the story too.) Best case scenario, 50 will go up tomorrow. Otherwise, see you next week? ^^;
Current plan is to continue the biweekly updates for October. This scene is going to be harder than the last one, though, so we'll see!
We are coming up on the end of chapter one. Original thought was that it'd be done by the end of November, but seeing as how this thing just keeps getting longer than on paper, maybe a better estimate is to say that it will be done by the end of the year!
Things are about to get expositiony.
Added a new title page for chapter one in addition to page 26! Check it out!
Another very sincere thank you for everyone reading (and of course to the great comments!)
The next scene is long but fast-paced, and I don't want it to drag on, so I'm considering going back to a Saturday/Sunday schedule for the month of September. Wish me luck!
One more note: the site and the pages themselves are in a state of flux right now. Still need to do my "consistency run", bringing the old pages to the same dimensions (and font usage!) as the new ones. It's making the archive a little wonky. Will hopefully be all straightened out by the time I finish the chapter!
A preliminary cast page has been added! (Not that there are that many characters to keep track of so far but, yanno. Webcomic's gotta have a cast page.) The archive has gotten a makeover, too.
Thank you for the comments and favorites!! I appreciate it sincerely!
Unfortunately there will be no new update this week (as anyone paying attention may have guessed!).
I spend 50 hours a week either at work or en route to work, and video games and drawing are in a constant struggle for dominance during my spare hours. This week, video games have won (thanks largely to the massive thunderstorms causing me to leave my computer off most of the week! ...But also because Fire Emblem). See you all next week!
