Weekly update for Dec. 10, 2018

Death Ray Expo Anthology Issue.1

A few quick updates for the week. 

The above is a comic page I contributed to a local anthology in association with the Cattywampus/Death Ray Expo maker/creator faire. ( https://gocattywampus.com/ ) It was recently only available to event visitors, but should be up for purchase online shortly. It is full of comics and content from NWA local creators. I’ll make a specific post when they are available. All purchases will go toward supporting further anthologies. 

The Patreon post for today’s update has some preliminary design work for Argann and his Ogroon. Check it out for free! 

Speaking of the Patreon, there will be a new lore update up this weekend. We will be exploring the Gomradi. New art and insights! The post will be free to read. However, only patrons will get to vote for the next topic. 

Translation for today’s page will be up Saturday.

And that is it for now, 

Till next time,

Weekly update for Nov. 19, 2018. ( No comic this week.)

Process vid will be on Patreon in a few days.

Hello readers,

There won’t be a comic update for Thanksgiving week. Hope all my U.S readers have a happy turkey day. I’m still aiming to reach comic update one hundred before 2018 runs out. As such, I’m not announcing a Christmas or New Years break just yet. ( I’ll need to do the math first. )

In other news, I’m starting to renovate the old Astray3 art. It’s been over a year and it’s time to slap a fresh coat of paint on the old shed. Look for changes to happen throughout the remainder of 2018. ( And probably into 2019. )

Also, I’ll soon make all the concept art and character info public on the Patreon page. I’ve decided to stop putting exclusive content behind a paywall. You will still have to view it over on the Patreon page. ( So, temptingly close to that donation button. ) I’ll drop an announcement here when that change takes place. 

That is it for now. See you next Monday.

All the best,

-Eldon

Weekly update for Oct. 29, 2018

Greetings dear readers,

A quick update and reminder. Today’s update will be pushed to tomorrow. The art is complete and only awaits the lettering to be finalized. Sorry about the delay. This leads us to the next topic..

Next week’s update will be pushed to the following week. ( November 12th to be specific. ) This will allow for a micro buffer to help updates stay on schedule. Look for further breaks around the holidays. Most likely the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. 

That is it for now.

See you Tuesday,

-Eldon

Weekly update for Oct. 23, 2018

Late, late, LATE…. 

Seems to be a running theme lately. I predict next week’s update will be late too. To resolve this, there will be no comic update on the week of Nov. 5th. This will build a mini buffer to help keep the comics on time. Expect a few more breaks around holidays to further help the update schedule. 

Thank you for being patient,

-Eldon

Weekly update for Oct. 15, 2018

Hey everybody! It’s time for a quick update on the comic. October has turned into a busy month for yours truly. Obligations just keep stacking up. But, your plucky comic creator pal pushes ever onward. 

As all you early bird readers have probably noticed, comic updates have been lagging a bit. That’s because production has been coming down to the wire lately. There is currently no buffer. I’m considering a series of one week posting breaks to build up a small buffer. I will try to offer some advanced warning when those breaks will happen. 

Lastly, an announcement ahead of the formal announcement. All Patreon posts will be made public starting soon. I will make a post here when they are all switched to public viewing. This will unlock all the previous character design posts and exclusive background info for everybody to view.  

Until next week dear readers,

-Eldon

Weekly update for Oct. 1, 2018

HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

…..or thereabouts.

As you see from today’s update there are going to be some changes to the comic for year two. Starting today Monday updates will be double sized to compensate for the once a week schedule. This will allow each comic to contain the same amount of story content as the old double posts while giving the art more room to breath. 

This isn’t a radical change for the comic. The new size represents the format I used to plan the old double updates. I’m simply eliminating the half sheet restriction and developing it as a whole.

An example of the original update format.

I have a few other things planned for A3 year two. I will post an update with additional details soon.

See you then,

-Eldon
