New Scene – “Discovery”

Page 107 Just a quick appetizer of a scene to let you know that both me and the comic are still alive.  I’ve been writing like a madman lately, doing a must-needed rewrite to the ending of the book.  Also doing some illustration gigs and getting ahead on the thumbnails for the comic.

As for my health, things are looking good. However, the remedy seems to mean more moving and less sitting, so I still can’t pull long stints at the drawing desk. Still pacing myself, but I’m seeing (or rather, feeling) big improvements. Exercise, stretching and taking regular breaks definitely seem to be doing the trick.

The next scene is the big one, so I’ll be breaking it into bite-sized chunks again. First bit will probably go up in a couple of weeks. I’ll give you a heads up when to expect it.

    Yay!! You’re alive! That’s almost always a great place to start.

    Glad to hear your health is progressing, and your story as well; good all around.

    Keep it up, eh?

    The end of this book! No! It’s too soon!
    Besides, there is a monster at the end of this book! (Spoiler: The monster at the end of this book is furry, lovable old Kate.)

    No word of late. Is everything OK?

      Everything’s fine. I just don’t like to update the blog when there’s nothing really to report.

      I’ve just had a lot of illustration work lately, and it has been eating up most of my drawing time (since I can only draw about 2-4 hours a day right now.) Everything is is good. Been working on PS behind the scenes. Just finished roughing the next scene in its entirety (14 pages), and I’ll start in on the final art this week. Still not sure when it will post. I’ll post it when it’s ready.

      Yes, I’m not playing by internet rules right now. I am being silent most of the time. This does not mean I’m dead. It simply means I will have more to say and show when I finally post.

    Boy do I know about production schedule FUBARs!
    Launch of my Kindle book (SF novel) was supposed to take 6-8 weeks from mid Feb. It is now 3May13 and still has a few more weeks. My marketing efforts blew out the doors along with my Win2K PDC (lots of work to re-architect/rebuild my data center). It was supposed to be self-hosted. Ergo, Kindle launch with no marketing support now. (>_<) That's the bad news, the worse news is that the artist for my cover disappeared so I have to ad hoc a cover as well.

    Right now, I'll just be happy to get it out the door and worry about the marketing launch and support later (maybe I need to hire a publisher?).

    Hey, Dirk! :)

    Great comic so far. :D

    I have a question for you. What if you create an archive for all of the pages? I like that you Can pick any book to start reading from but it would be nice to be able to pick a page we want to look at without having to constantly pressing the next button several times in order to reach the page we want to look at. Plus, it makes things a little bit more easier and more convenient for people to find the pages they want to look at. :)

    You don’t have to do it if you don’t want to – it was just an idea
    I thought you could try out. Looking forward to see what happens next in the comic! ^_^
