Today's comic, Mysteries of the Obscured, for Tuesday 23rd of January 2018
Tuesday 23 January
Time for today's Mysteries of the Obscured update! Byeeeee Acer! Your face was fun.
I'm heading into hospital for some more tests tomorrrrrrowwwww (hooray for finally getting scheduled in :V). Hoooopefully I won't miss any updates but maybe I will miss some updates. I'll do my best!
Monday 22 January
Here's today's Random Encounter update! Well... mostly! I'll have to do the colour tomorrow, I ran out of time for it today. But it'll be done! *shakes fist at sky*
Late edit: Colour's up!
Sunday 21 January
Right! Here's this week's Fall update! Altair is bad at conversations.
Sorry for all the shuffled updates this week! There's a heatwave here at the moment which is definitely slowing things down, and I'm not really feeling any better, but hey maybe next week will be a better week for gettings things done on-time and on the right days!
Saturday 20 January
My illness continues to hit hard... and there's a bit of a heatwave at the moment, which isn't helping either. So for now it's another bit of a schedule shuffle, because I'm not going to get Fall done tonight so I have an early update of The Breaking!
Hopefully I am feeling a bit less sick tomorrow, and then I can get Fall updated for Sunday!
Hooray also for buffers which I'm slowly wearing down this week, whoops. Fingers crossed the rest of the month I can build it back up a bit again :P
Friday 19 January
Waaaaay too sick to get a proper Random Encounter update done today, sorry! But I do have a little Random Encounter update! Drake never thinks things through, thinking things through is for nerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrds
Thursday 18 January
Late, but here! Here's this week's Darkness Falls update! Don't worry, Danni's contractually obliged to say that in every comic she's in that takes place after Random Encounter.
Wednesday 17 January
Sorry!! Super busy today, and still quite sick. So moving slow, too slow to get today's Darkness Falls update finished... So that'll be up tomorrow! For today, there's another Mysteries of the Obscured update! Shuffling around the updates a little bit so I'll still get 'em all done, just a bit out of order.
So... off to bed, and then hopefully I'm slightly less busy tomorrow and then I'll catch up! The next page of Darkness Falls is well underway, so barring any catastrophes it'll be up tomorrow!
Tuesday 16 January
Time for today's Mysteries of the Obscured update! Back on the road! Or... in the sky. Whichever!
Monday 15 January
Here's today's Random Encounter update! Yeah that's not suspicious at all. This volume will surely not be full of people's sneaky plots. Ceraph Claw, the Impors, and now Leo? Yeah it's fine. Nothing going on here!
Sunday 14 January
Time to round out the week with an update of The Breaking! Deimi is doing a completely terrible job of not being suspicious. She is extremely good at looking like a kidnapper, turns out.
Saturday 13 January
Teeny bit late because I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with the backgrounds, but here's today's Fall update! Jake doesn't know the meaning of the phrase "tone it down". Or anything about starting slow. I'm sure he and the God of Death will be BEST FRIENDS (possibly FOREVER??)
Friday 12 January
Random Encounter has updated! Er, well... mostly! This one's got a few characters in it, so that's taking a bit longer to colour than I'd like. I should get it coloured before Monday, though! Sorry for the delay!
Edit: colour version's up!
Thursday 11 January
Time for today's Mysteries of the Obscured update! Um, maybe I didn't want to draw several pages of Col riding a dragon in the air, there's really only so many ways that can be drawn and a change of scenery is nicer. MAYBE
Also time for me to slowly plink away at building a buffer! Slowly... it's kind of hard to build a buffer when I draw 11 pages of comics a week just to do regular updates, but it's coming along! Gotta get a bit faster about it though, and then I can look forward to being lazy and not updating :P
Wednesday 10 January
Here's this week's Darkness Falls update! If you wanna know how much fun it is to draw Darkness Falls, the answer is: very. I am already having loads of fun with this one, mwa ha haaaaa.
Tuesday 9 January
Here's today's Mysteries of the Obscured update! Col's already a great reporter for The Obscured - he's good at making things up.
Monday 8 January
Hoo! Really hot today, which made it super hard to get anything done... but I managed! To get today's Random Encounter update up! Still working on the format for this volume, but I think I'm getting closer to what I want. Well! We'll see, the next page has a big lot of students in one cell so hopefully this format works well for that :P
Sunday 7 January
One week into the year, and time for an update of The Breaking! Been a real long time since the last one, haha. It's nice to get back into the swing of things!
I also brought back the ol' buffer builder *gestures to the right*! I last used it a few years ago, when I really wanted to build a big buffer so I could go on a big roadtrip. This time... same thing! I want to go on a roadtrip, and I want to not miss updates, so having a good buffer will help. Pretty difficult though, lots of comics to draw... so I'll see how it goes! ...I also need to not be hideously sick in order to go on a big roadtrip. Will also have to see how that goes... still waiting to be scheduled for further tests, and still being sick and grumpy about being sick. Hello 2018, the number of meals I have been able to keep down this year is: 1. But we'll see, hopefully I start getting better soon and then can do all the everythinggggg
Saturday 6 January
Time for the first Fall update of the year! Been a while since the last one! Is Jake going to be as dumb as he normally is, or go with a smart plan? Well... it is Jake...
Friday 5 January
Here's today's Random Encounter update! First page of the new volume, and trying something new. Got lots of experimenting to do this volume, I think!
So since it's been a while since I drew any New Game+... time for characters who appeared in New Game+! Ceraph Claw and Ceraph Talon... been a while! I'm sure they won't kill quite so many people in this as they did in New Game+.... probably
Thursday 4 January
Time for another Mysteries of the Obscured update! You got me, I just like drawing Acer. What's the problem, Col? Col is the problem that you're a shapeshifter??
Wednesday 3 January
Getting back into the swing of things, here's today's Darkness Falls update! Danni and co, back at the guildhall! There's always lots of friends at the guildhall.
Tuesday 2 January
Time for a comic that isn't Random Encounter? Finally back to the regular update schedule, haha. Here's today's Mysteries of the Obscured update! Back to the cheeriest, pointiest-toothed dragon we know. And I guess Col is there too!
Monday 1 January
Right!! Time to start the new year off with a new Random Encounter volume! Hmmm!! Looks like a lot of familiar faces in this one, though... lots of people... who aren't Random Encounter characters...?
Sunday 31 December
Here I am with today's Random Encounter update! And that's that for that volume! I'll leave it to you to decide whether Claw intended to scare Jinx off or not.
And that's that for 2017! It's been a trying year for a number of people for a number of reasons, myself included, so hopefully the coming year isn't quite so bad. Despite ending up in hospital a number of times I managed to keep up on updates pretty well this year, hopefully next year I will be in hospital less (...definitely won't be avoiding it though, have to go back in rather soon) and update even more! Got a lot of plans for comics in the coming year! Probably won't finish quite so many as I did this year (still can't believe New Game+ has finally finished! I miss drawing it haha), but I'm excited to continue the new ones! Fall is finally going to update properly, Mysteries of the Obscured is a nice simple and fun change, and Darkness Falls is also going fantastically! I'll certainly start another new comic sometime next year... but you'll have to wait and see what it is!
Lots of comics planned... so I'd better get my butt in gear and also work on the title page for the next Random Encounter volume, which'll go up tomorrow to start the new year! Thanks for reading and enjoying DHSComix this year, and I hope you'll join me again in the new!
Saturday 30 December
Here's today's Random Encounter update! Jinx is a bad influence Claw, don't listen to him.
One more page and one more day left! I mean I post these at the very start of the day so it's more like two but sssh 2017 is nearly over... next year: more comics!
Friday 29 December
Getting real close to the end of the year, and real close to the end of the current Random Encounter volume! Sat down and proper rewrote the ending today too, so it'll definitely run through the 31st, and then there's going to be a new volume to start the new year! Pretty excited for that next volume, mwaha. It's going to be a lot of fun! This volume's going fun too, but it'll be nice to get back to regular updates. Feels like ages since I drawn the other regular comics!
Thursday 28 December
Here's today's Random Encounter update! Tricksters are never subtle
Wednesday 27 December
Time for today's Random Encounter update! And the band plays on!
Tuesday 26 December
It's boxing day so here's a Random Encounter update! I'm having a lot of fun drawing this volume but I think I might have written too few pages, hrmm.... well I'll either extend it, post something goofy or go back to normal updates a bit earlier than new year. Guess I'll see what I feel like, mwahaaaa
Monday 25 December
Here's today's Random Encounter update! Slowly getting into the swing of doing these daily little RE updates, but this one took a bit longer than I expected due to the crowds.... aaaand most of the rest of the pages will have crowds. Whoops!
