HOLY SMOKES! There is an Astray3 web-store!

BUY MY BOOK! BUY MY BOOK!

Hello Astray3 faithful,

Indeed, there is now an Astray3 store! ( I’ve been promising one for long enough! ) You can buy all my current books there. More products and services will be added soon. Also, if you are a current, or former, Patreon contributor, check your messages for special discount codes on book purchases. ( And if you aren’t a member already, sign-up for future discount opportunities. )

Visit the shop here: https://astray3.bigcartel.com/

That is it for now. Be back soon with more comic teasers!

All the best,

A trio of Darkstalkers tributes!

Hello Astray3 peeps,

I created a trio of Darkstalker pics for future prints to sell on the new web-store ( https://astray3.bigcartel.com/ ) and at future conventions. Next week I will be doing some pics based on an IP from a long time ago and not far away from an ending. Enjoy!

All the best,

Weekly update for Nov. 20th, 2019. Art and comic teasers!

A3 Chapter 4 page 3 teaser!

Hello Readers,

Here is another teaser for the upcoming Astray3 chapter 4. Work continues apace. I hope to be on course for a New Year release.

On a side note, I’ve started offering commissions. If you would like to have me draw some purdy pictures for you, please contact me at eldon@astray3.com. Rates depend on production time and detail. Here is a piece I created for a client’s D&D loving girlfriend’s birthday.

Next, I will be producing a series of small prints based on Capcom fighting game girls! For the first subject, I’ve chosen Felicia from Darkstalkers.

That’s all for now, more comic panels and art soon.

Till next time,

Weekly update for Oct. 14th, 2019. Lots of art and actual comic NEWS!

Hello Astray3 faithful,

It’s been a while since I posted an update on the main page. So, here is a massive update to get yall caught up.

I’ll lead with some good news. New Astray3 pages are in production! I dropped a new character design post on the Patreon page. Check it out! No need to be Patron. I’ll be dropping some panel sneak peeks once the first pages are finished. Stay tuned!

Now, here is a ton of Procreate art! I’ve also been participating in Inktober 2019. There may be a big post for those soon.

Enjoy!

Weekly update for Sept. 25th, 2019.

Procreate practice.

Hello readers,

Not much of an update. Work continues apace on chapter four. I hope to start releasing pages at the beginning of November or December. The print version should be ready sometime mid-2020.

My next big project is to create the web-store. Look for that before October is out.

Spa-Con is in the rear-view mirror. My next event will be the Ozark Book Authority’s Book Con in November. I will have a small table and should be moderating/attending some panels. Then there will be a yet unannounced Death Ray event in December. Finally, to kick-off 2020, there will be the Fayetteville Comic Show. I plan to attend even more conventions next year, so keep your eyes peeled for more announcements.

And that is all. I will leave you with some pictures from Spa-Con.

All the best,

-Eldon

Weekly update for Sept. 16th, 2019. ACTUAL COMIC NEWS!

So much work to set up for more work…

Hello A3 readers,

Finally, some news on comic progress. Preliminary layouts for chapter 4 are done. It’s a whopping 58 pages; including an epilogue that is around eight pages long. However, that’s a bit long for the current individual chapter printing scheme. Thus, I’ll be chopping this baby in half Solomon style. The first 30+ pages will be Enigma part 1 and the second half and epilogue will be Enigma part 2.  ( As an interesting bonus fact, chapter four was supposed to be part of chapter three. But….yeah, I thought it was too long then. Yowza! ) 

The remainder of September and a chunk of October will be spent writing/designing the first 30-page chunk. Page posting will begin once I have around five pages in the can. ( 1 month of updates. ) I predict that should be around mid-November or the beginning of December. This should guarantee at least two months of consistent updates before the inevitable delays begin. Expect to see the print version mid-2020. ( The second Interstitial book too…probably. )

Next week is Spa-Con in Hot Springs, AR. After the convention is when the official Astray3 online store will be set up. I have no idea where it will be hosted yet. Either Etsy or another store hosting site. There will be a discount for current Astray3 Patrons. If/when I figure that out. 

Lastly, next year will be full of convention stops. I’m still working out the kinks of my booth. Check out these new shots of my custom signage. 

That’s it for now. I’ll be dropping some Patreon exclusive design work soon. ( I only charge when comic pages are posted. So, you can join for free until chap 4 officially begins. ) Look for new art updates soon….one right after this as a matter of fact. 

All the best,

-Eldon
