To be continued!!!
We've done it, another issue in the can! Thanks for joining me in this crazy ride, I really look forward to telling y'all the next chapter and the rest of the story!
I'll put the cover up for sure next week, but I haven't decided whether to throw the first page in with that, or if I need the extra buffer time...we'll see.
In any case, see ya next year! And speaking of next year, I'll share a goal of mine with you all here and now for accountability purposes: I am going to finish publishing Roeke. That's three whole comics, as Roeke is a 5 part series total. Then, after that's done, hopefully you'll get to see the start of whatever comes next for me.
Until next time,
Merry Christmas, y'all!
I got you this new Roeke page, and no gift receipt, so you're stuck with it!
Roeke has a sit down after getting beat up by a robot. But, hey, she got her GPS/DS thing and can hopefully use it to find Miri!
Boy, I sure used a lot of grey in this issue....
Anyway, last page of the chapter goes up on New year's Eve, so chapter three will start without interruption or delay the first Wednesday in 2015!
To all, a good night!
I like how the first two panels turned out, the rest can go straight to hell! :P
I'm coloring Roeke 03 right now and I think my art might be improving some. Funny how that works ;)
Also, how does one spell out that sound phonetically? I did my best, but did that put the right noise in your brains? That kinda inhaled hiss as you do anything you can to disperse that pain?
Well, we're winding down on chapter two. Just a couple more pages, a Christmas and a New Year's present for ya's. Then, first Wednesday in January, we will see the start of Roeke Stage 03! Featuring not one, but TWO robot fights and the wrap up of our flashback scenes, depicting the ultimate fate of Roeke and Nyant's relationship. It'll be a doozy!
Last night I lost my mind a little and scheduled out my comic work and publishing schedule for 2015, and boy, will I be busy! It is my hope and aim to finish Roeke (which has been 5 Stages pretty much from the get-go) and then in the last few months of the year begin publishing whatever my next project ends up being. Pretty exciting, eh?
Well, wish me luck. Thanks to Dragon Age (and my own laziness) I am way behind where I wanted to be by now, but not so far that it's hopeless (no month break between chapters this time!).
See ya Christmas Eve!
I originally had a much different- and much more boring- composition in mind for this page. I don't think that even made it to the tiny thumbnail stage before I thought of and fell in love with this one.
On the original drawing, the small, square falling panels were much smaller, so I blew them up when I went in to color the page. Technology!
Looks like Roeke's spider problems are finally at an end...
If robots had feelings, I'm sure someone reaching into their arm hole and pulling on their guts wouldn't feel very nice.
I like my last panel there (and the transition to it). Hard to do better suspense then "They're already over the edge!" Wile E. Coyote would be throwing up his "Help" sign right about now.
I have a nasty habit of writing myself scenes with a loooooot of panels. Particularly the fights. Beware! Future collaborators are going to hate me :P
On a separate note, I feel like emotes should count as punctuation, as sentences look funny when you punctuate after an emoji, but the emoji feels isolated and unrelated if punctuation precedes it. So, there you have it: emoji is the new punctuation :D
I hope y'all like incomplete stories, because now that Dragon Age rules my life forever, I probably will never finish Roeke 03, haha.
God, I hope I'm kidding.
