I already announced this via vote incentive, but here’s the scoop in a less roundabout fashion. I did manage to sketch the next Eryl page directly on the computer in Manga Studio. It was a long, messy, angsty process which I am not at all comfortable with, but at least it got done. I have inked it and am laying flats now. Expect the finished page in a day or two! I still am pining for a driver for my scanner, but at least I know I can resort to digital sketching when desperate. As much as I wished this meant a return to regular updates, I am still going to have to post pages sporadically. This might actually mean more pages at times since I’ll be putting them up as I finish them instead of waiting for Tuesdays.

So that page before my nieces came didn’t happen. We had too much to do to prepare for their visit, and now with them here I don’t have time to work. I’ll be trying to get some pages done soon. Give me… 2 weeks maybe? I don’t know yet if the next update will be for Ashes or Eryl, but keep your eyes peeled!
I know I’ve been pretty quiet lately. I’m sorry for the delayed to non-existent answers to comments. I still read and appreciate every one of them! I’m just too much of a mess to always answer. As far as comics go… I’ve hit a bit of a roadblock with writing Erosion. But to be honest, I have the feeling I don’t need to draw that comic, just write it. In which case the online world won’t be seeing any of it. But that also means more time again for Eryl and Ashes! I really want to get back to drawing them, but I’ve been feeling dead tired lately. Between catching every virus that blows my way and my emotional issues, it’s hard to find the energy. But that energy WILL come back, sooner or later, I can guarantee that much. So keep hanging with me, I’ll pull myself together one of these days…
I managed to sketch & scan a page of Eryl today! Sadly, it was a Black Feathers page, not the current storyline. I’m trying to take this hiatus time to catch up on the redux chapter so I can try to keep it even with the currently updating chapter. I want them both finished at the same time. Since the current chapter is on page 11 and Black Feathers is on page 7, I have a bit of catching up to do. I also want to gather some semblance of a buffer together so it may be some time yet before I come off hiatus. I’ll keep posting awful old art with inane insight annotations in Eryl’s archive (alliteration, anyone?).
I’m just taking things one day, one baby step at a time right now. I’m trying hard to get my art groove back, but that may take a while yet.
To try and make this hiatus as painless as possible, every Tuesday or Wednesday I will dig through my old art dumpster and try to post some Eryl related stuff. Most to all of it has already been posted to DeviantART at some point, so if you’ve frequented that gallery, the art may look familiar. However, I’m going to add some annotations and background info where I can to make things more interesting. There’s already an old concept sketch on Eryl’s page for you guys to look at! SO GO NOW HUMANS I ORDER YOU.
And I managed to do a little sketching this morning on the next Ashes page, so hopefully I can get that comic updating soon. It may update for some time instead of Eryl depending on how things in Real Life go.
