I really need to get a blog thing workin on here. >.>
Not much to say! Check us out on the forums
or get more updates by checking on my
. We've also got an email addy
now, so let us know what goes on! We love hearing from you.
Hope you enjoy Chapter 3! We've decided to allow downloads of the first half, so go ahead and DOWNLOAD AWAY! Not much else to say
here, but join us in the Forums
Sorry about the lack of dailies (read: occasionallys) lately. Been working a bunch of late nights and actually didn't get home till 3am this morning. I've got lots of sketches to share, and no time to put them up!! 8C
You guys are all darlings. Thank you sososososososososo much for all the beautiful and thoughtful fanart. We are so in love with all of it, you guys really are too awesome to us. I'll be working soon on getting them all up on the fanart page SOON. I promise!! <3 ENJOY CHAPTER TWO! It's now available for download.
Sorry for the complete lack of updates for the past couple of days. It's been a rough week, not that that's a satisfactory excuse.
Most importantly, we've been discussing some changes in how often we update. This is something we aren't necessarily looking forward to, but agree it needed to happen. The primary change will be that we publish the chapters in two seperate parts. The first of the chapter will be posted on the 15th, the 2nd on the 1st. This is instead of posting an entire chapter every two weeks.
This was a really hard decision to make for us because we really want this to move fast, and we want to tell the story SO fast. There are things in later chapters that we don't want to wait to share. But the truth is that we both have full-time jobs, and with the way we were updating, we were having to spend every hour we were awake outside of work drawing the comic in order to keep up. While most days we have no problem with this, if we decide to do something else one day, we're behind, and then we're stressed about it, and so on.
We're hoping that perhaps later down the line, after we each have about five chapters under our belt, we'll be fast enough to keep up with our original schedule, but for now we're going to have to slow things down a bit. I hope you guys understand. <3
So on the 15th, expect the first 12 pages of Chapter 2. <3
The second change, is perhaps the wording on 'DAILY," hahaha. We chose the word daily, but really...that implies that we do something up here every DAY. While we'd like to do that. Wow, we realize that it's a lot more work than it seems. We still want to get stuff to you very often, and definately much more often than just once every two months, but they may just not be daily. Perhaps we should change the names to "Sometime's"...
Luvs and kisses~ <3
Okay. So I'm uploading the daily, but the site is so FOOKIN SLOW it's hard to tell if it's worked or not. I'm frankly, quite frustrated with the server. This is about the third time that we've had troubles with it either being down, slow, or doing strange DNS mumbo-jumbo, and we've only been up for about. Oh that's right. Eight days. 8C *wiggles*
Enjoy the Raine doodles if they show. I'll be working on a solution to the server or at least complaining to them a lot. Ciao!
So extremely sleepy allova sudden... *yawn* Anywhoo, floofy Aidan sketches for you. These were concepty type sketches that I did before we started drawing the comic pages, and one of the sketches was even used for the cover image eventually - if you couldn't tell already. I'm glad I get to share this though because I liked his facial expression in the sketch better.
Oh yes, I also wanted to start archiving the dailies today, but never found the time for it. I likely won't be able to put up the links to the old ones until later this week or this weekend, but they will be up!
Daily numero 3. A lovely lovely set of Dom expressions by Vert. <3 You can never have too much Dom.
Daily number two~ another one of my ventures into drawing with pen and pencil. :| It has a lot of mistakes in it, so despite
me originally wanting to take it to a finished color piece, I probably won't. Just because I can't stand all the little errors
in it. D: There's lots of parts I like, but enough that I hate. WHY IS THERE NO UNDO IN LIFE. 8C
Thank you CoffeePowered for the awesome pic idea. <3
