There’s a new Eryl wallpaper available to download! All right, ‘new’ is subjective, as it’s an image that’s been floating about for a while, but now it’s in wallpaper form! Right-click and select ‘download linked file’ on your preferred size. You can also download it on the Wallpapers page.
Also, Raven, Paiya, and Felde have been added to Eryl’s World page.
Okay, the website reconstruction is nearly complete. I just need to overhaul the ‘About’ page and then delete all the content on the sub-sites and have them redirect readers here.
This took a whole lot longer than I thought, and I apologise for the huge gap in updates! I’m getting back on track – I am inking the next Eryl page now. I should have it done before the end of tomorrow as there is very little in the way of background.
Ashes updates will be another month in coming, though. I am going to live with my two best friends, Reby and her husband, Robert, for three weeks. I will NOT have a scanner, so I can work on Ashes, but not scan the pages to finish them. For Eryl I only need to scan rough sketches, so I can either do that with my iPad or just sketch digitally right in Manga Studio. (which I hate doing, but I can do it in a pinch).
There are some BIG changes going on!! I am moving all archives into ONE directory. Up until now I have used sub-directories for every comic, each directory acting as its own website with separate installs of WordPress on each. Moving them all to the root directory will make website maintenance much easier… in the long run. Until then, bear with me as I migrate everything. I can’t figure out how to migrate the comics themselves, only their posts and associated comments / tags / etc. So that means re-uploading and attaching each comic to its post. Considering I have HUNDREDS of comic posts across my site… it’ll take a while. A good loooooong while.
Until then, you can still enjoy each comic in its respective directory, as it was before this madness began. I will delete those directories once the full migration is complete and I’m satisfied with the site.
Woot, time for the (somewhat) yearly boring rant about where the comics are and what I plan for them going forward!
Ashes has returned to regular weekly updates for the first time in… I don’t even know when. It updates FRIDAYS. I even have a small buffer of two more finished pages, plus 4 more pages rough sketched. I plan to spend Tuesday and Wednesday finishing at least one of them.
So, this WAS supposed to be going on a long hiatus… but I couldn’t stop myself from working on it and updating it. It will now update weekly on TUESDAYS. However, I do NOT have a buffer for this one. Therefore it will update whatever Tuesday I happen to have a finished page ready. So there WILL be weeks without updates.
I’m still working on this, but very slowly. My art inspiration came back with a vengeance, but sadly it seems to have chased away my writing inspiration in the process. I am illustrating pages of the first chapter in between everything else. Which is to say… not often. I only have 8 pages so far- which is about halfway through the chapter- and I’d like to have at least 3 chapters illustrated plus 2-3 more written before releasing this into the wild.
Shivae is written and drawn by my friend, Tiffany Ross, though I have worked with her on it on and off over the years as a colourist. And now I’m doing it again. There are three Shivae! arcs thus far- Vas, Cler, and Caiden & Koel. Previously I only worked on Vas, but now I am colouring Caiden & Koel. Vas is nearly over with only two chapters remaining. Once over, Caiden & Koel will begin. Right now we’re working on getting a buffer going.
Easily Amused & Epic Fail
I do plan to pick these up again somewhere down the line. I just can’t think up funny jokes at the moment. I think once my life is more normal, the humour will come back. Epic Fail is going to be renamed when it returns. I know the title is funny and catchy, but when I named it, the phrase was not very common yet. Now it has become exhaustingly overused, plus I know at least one other webcomic has cropped up with the same name. Its new title will be ‘No More Save Points.’ Not quite as short and fun, I know, but that’s how the cookie crumbles sometimes.
