No comic for Thursday, 21st September 2017
Thursday 21 September
No New Game+ comic today. Got pretty close to finishing the inks... but not quite there yet. Iiiii'll try to catch up on this missed update on Saturday or Sunday, maybe. But right now just feeling pretty sick. Been a worse week for feelin well than last week was, which is unfortunate. I mean, last week was bad for other reasons, but at least I wasn't spewy every day. This week, psssh. Anyway... all I want to do is work on comics, so hopefully the rest of the week will be much more conducive to that!!
Wednesday 20 September
Here's this week's Death's Door update! This page has the dumbest faces, therefore it's the best Death's Door page.
Dowwwn to the last dozen pages on this one! And... while I did say I'd finish it this year... in the past week I've become rather convinced that I need to do a direct sequel to Death's Door as well. Sort of came to me all of a sudden. So! Hopefully I can start that this year or early next year :P
Oh yeah, also managed to ffffinally do another Random Encounter background! It's the princess pals, Paige and Miaaaa
Tuesday 19 September
Tuesday means... New Game+ update! Succinct backstory. But I suppose he should expand on that a bit...
Aaaand... it's the 19th! Another year has passed for DHS Comix, now been plugging along for 13 years of this! I will celebrate.... by mentioning I'm still pretty unwell and may be missing some updates this week, we'll see.
Monday 18 September
Here's today's Random Encounter! Cornered, whoops
Sunday 17 September
Time for this week's The Breaking update! DHS, as full of colourful characters as ever.
Saturday 16 September
OK, to the wiiiiire trying to work with the new schedule (ugh it is nearly 1am and I am still behind on comics...), but I did it! Here's today's New Game+ update!
Also yes there is a thing in the top-right of the website (unless you have noscript enabled). If you're Australian you know what it means and if you're not then don't worry about it. I voted today! Those forms were sent out much earlier than expected...
Friday 15 September
Rolling on with the double-updates, here's one for Random Encounter! Danni's mum confirmed for the worst.
I think I jinxed myself yesterday by saying I didn't feel terrible, bleh. Oh well. I'll try to take it easy and try to continue to slowly get better... slowly :X
Thursday 14 September
IDK what happened, but hey there's a double-New Game+ update! Pulled it off, somehow. Also not feeling completely terrible today?? That's a nice change. Maybe at some point later in the week I will even feel like, well. Hey I can dream!
Wednesday 13 September
Here's today's Death's Door update! Tish, especially cheery for the middle of the night and having fought a vampire and seen her friend attacked etc
I'll try to do a double-update for New Game+ tomorrow or Saturday, we'll seeeee if I can manage. If not that's one for the ol' IOU box :V
Tuesday 12 September (early)
Welcome to the new schedule, where I flail around instead of updating. Umm! Didn't get enough time to finish New Game+ or Death's Door, so Death's Door should be up tomorrow, and New Game+ I will endeavour to catch up on by the end of the week.
I really ought to have been more prepared on it yesterday and gotten things done a day early, but been a bit hectic around here. I thought I'd have time for it this afternoon, but ended up leaving 2 hours earlier than I thought so whoooooops my bad
Monday 11 September
Here's today's Random Encounter update! AKA, how many questions can be responded to with questions.
Anyway.... Unless I get re-hospitalised (pretty unlikely I think, but I'll fiiiiind out today :V) I'm going interstate tonight, so whatever updates tomorrow is going to go up super early. Yeah, it should be New Game+, but it depends if I have time to draw that... otherwise it'll be Death's Door, since I've got the next page halfway finished. Or... something else might happen to impede my ability to finish that comic in time, in which case... *shrugs* We'll see.
Also modified the schedule, Saturdays will be New Game+ updates for a bit! It'll be a bit tough to manage that, but I'll see how it goes. Aaaanyway it'll just be until the comic's done, which is like, 2 volumes maybe? I'd check, but I'm tired and should sleep zzzz
Sunday 10 September
Double update of The Breaking today, whynot. ...though I was excited to draw the next pages, it occurs to me there's going to be a lot of characters in them and that sounds tiring, hrrrrmmmppffffhhh
Saturday 9 September
Time for a Dhark's Hero Stories update! Just lines for now, colour will follow...
And Dhark's Hero Stories will be going on a mini-hiatus. It may be updating on occassional Saturdays, but for now it's not an every-week thing. I'll adjust the schedule sometime before next Saturday, I think I'll change the weekly Saturday update to either Death's Door or The Breaking.
Friday 8 September
Capping off the working week with a Random Encounter update! Pretty happy that I'm managing to keep up with these ones since I've been out of hospital, hopefully it means I can get this volume finished before Halloween... and then do a Halloween volume :3
Still pretty sick though. I know I've been sick a long time but... *shrugs*. Anyway! Weekend updates coming up, if I can manage I want to try to draw an extra page of The Breaking! That comic has a long way to go, but after this scene with the guardians, we're going somewhere more familiar, and that's something I want to draw right away!
Thursday 7 September
Here's today's New Game+ update! Oh hey, it's those guys. What's the world coming to, says Ada, murderer and many-times attempted-murderer.
Wednesday 6 September
Here's this week's Death's Door update! There is an answer and that's nnnnnooooot it.
Tuesday 5 September
Time for another New Game+ update! Why, it might even be a long enough journey for this backstory and one more, unless something happens... hrmmmmm
Monday 4 September
Here's today's Random Encounter update! I think a lot of people already predicted this, on account of those villagers are exactly that stupid, yeah.
Still feeling pretty unwell, so there's again a chance updates might be missed this week.
Sunday 3 September
Here's this week's The Breaking update! Shale: always helpful.
Saturday 2 September
No Dhark's Hero Stories this week, but there's a bonus Death's Door instead! I probably should not have stayed up so late to draw it... zzzz
Friday 1 September
Dunno where this year's going so fast, but I do know that here's today's Random Encounter update!
Thursday 31 August
To make up for the slight delay on this one, this week's Death's Door is a double-update! Well that and because I like drawing Death's Door but also am hype to get it finished before the end of the year...
Wednesday 30 August
Right! I know that today is supposed to be time for a Death's Door update, but I also know that I am suuuuuuper tired and won't be able to manage that today, so instead here is another New Game+ update!
Apart from being exhausted, today's pretty good! So, gonna try my best, and hopefully tomorrow I'll have that Death's Door update for you so this is just a little bit of a shuffle to the update schedule this week!
Tuesday 29 August
Time for a New Game+ update
Monday 28 August
Here's today's Random Encounter update! This is going well, Loki's got everything handled for sure...
Might miss some updates this week, I just cannot seem to catch a break lately, ugh
Sunday 27 August
Here's a double-The Breaking update! I did kinda miss an update of this one earlier this month when I was sick, so hey double-update.
Current Merlin status: still sick, and also ughhhh I caught some horrible cough from hospital and lost my voice. I'm gonna need life to stop coming at me for a sec, getting reeeeeaaaal tired of this junk :P
Saturday 26 August
No new Dhark's Hero Stories just at the moment, but there is an extra catch-up page of Random Encounter! It's always a weird quest, every time...
Home now, which is a very nice change. Still not feeling very well, but I'm slowly getting a bit better, so that's good. But being so ill, chances are good I'll miss some updates in the next week or so. We'll see how it goes.
Friday 25 August
Still in hospital, but the plan is to go home this morning. Fingers crossed! Never did get a diagnosis, but... feeling better than I was, so there's that. At any rate, there is a much belated Random Encounter update! Hopefully there won't be such a large gap between this page and the next one :V
I've added the updates I missed to the IOU tracker, but it may be that I can't catch up on those updates this year. Just missed a lot, I guess! Anyway, I'll keep trying to update when I can, and keep trying very hard to get less ill
Thursday 24 August
Still in hospital, yada yada... but here's a double-New Game+ update! Luckily the two pages for this week were quite simple, so I could catch up...
Probably won't be able to post an update tomorrow, but we'll see.... hopefully after that I can go home :x
Wednesday 23 August
Ended up a little later between updates than I would like (lol sorry NG+ is rather at a bad place to pause at the moment too), but hey what can ya do. Hospitals and being super sick, psssh. At any rate, today I managed to do a Death's Door update today! Having less tubes in the back of my wrist helps I think P:
Anyway, updates are going to continue to be a bit shaky because I am still in hospital. It's been... rather a longer time here than I would have liked, but it is what it is. If I'm extremely lucky and continue to get better than perhaps I will be home by the end of the week.
Sunday 20 August
Heeeeeere's an update of The Breaking! Guess that about finishes that scene, so next time... Deimi or Lavender or Syrras? We shall seeeeee
So! Merlin status. Still in hospital, and have been since Wednesday morning. I'll be here at least until Monday, possibly longer... Quite sick... but it's still a mystery as to why. Saturday was a nice change in that I could actually sit up for long enough to use my laptop (so good), but mainly it's been a horrible mess.
So! Comics... Random Encounter will definitely not update tomorrow, because that is rather a lot of work to handle while I'm this ill. New Game+ and Death's Door, definite maybes. Depends what happens Monday (really hoping it is finally a diagnosis, but idk how lucky I feel :V)
Thursday 17 August
Here's today's New Game+ update!
Me I have been in the emergency department all day and am also there right now so probably there won't be an update tomorrow because I don't have anything buffered. Maybe there will be an update on Saturday or Sunday?? I guess we'll seeeeeee what happens
I cannot recommend being sick, it's not a lot of fun
Wednesday 16 August
Time for this week's Death's Door, and it's a double-update this week! Yeah Ra had no idea that vampires didn't immediately pwoof into dust until she tried that :V very lucky for her!
Tuesday 15 August
Here's today's New Game+ update! Next few pages are probably going to be a bit of a bummer, but that seems to have been the theme for the past two volumes.
Still sick, so there's a good chance I'll miss updates this week but I'll do my best.
Monday 14 August
Still ill, but I managed to pace myself a bit better today and manage a Random Encounter update! ....50/50 chance Loki caught that.
Sunday 13 August
OK! Still not well. This illness is very annoying... I've been complaining about it a lot on twitter, but it's pretty much just how sick I was prior to getting surgery in April... which is what the surgery was meant to solve! Super annoying... Pretty bad today again, so I haven't been able to draw The Breaking. So what's up instead? HRMMM A NEW COMIC, that's the opposite of taking it easy and not updating... except these pages were already done so-
Well! I guess this is like, a sneak preview of a comic that will start updating either later this year or, far more likely, early next year! My current plan for comics is, when Death's Door finishes in the next few months, I'll bump New Game+ up to 3x updates per week, then when that's done... I'll finally put Fall on a regular update schedule, and this will be the comic I'll be running in the other empty slot!
That's a little while off though... but here's some comics, and now I go to sleep hopefully. I would like to feel better soon I think.
Saturday 12 August
No Dhark's Hero Stories update just yet, but there is a catch up on that missed New Game+ update!
Friday 11 August
Feeling a little better than I have been the past two days, so here's a Random Encounter update! Loki in charge? That would be..... something
Thursday 10 August
Yep. Sick. Sorry! I'll try to catch up on this missed update a bit later on...
Wednesday 9 August
Here's this week's Death's Door update!
And as a heads up, there's a possibility comic updates may be delayed a bit later in the week, feeling reaaaallly sick. Cannot recommend.
Tuesday 8 August
Time for today's New Game+ update! Still a bit disjointed, this story. Dang head-injured narrators...
Monday 7 August
Here's today's Random Encounter update! Sorry for that missed page last week, hopefully I can catch that up (and the other ones) at some point! Step 1: stop being sick. Working on that :V
Sunday 6 August
Well, didn't get everything done, but I got a lot of things done. What I did get done is this week's The Breaking update! Good excuse, Dyaris.
Saturday 5 August
Here's this week's Dhark's Hero Stories update! Previous page is now coloured, too!
I'm going to try to update Random Encounter tomorrow, but chances are good I'll only able to update The Breaking. In which case I'll update the IOU's to add that extra missed page :V
Friday 4 August
Getting close to the end of this shuffled week, here's a New Game+ update! And, er... might be missing tomorrow's Random Encounter update, which sort of defeats the whole point of shuffling the updates but oh well. I'll do my best! ..but I don't expect at this point that I'll have the time to do that and everything else I gotta do today. Sorry!
Thursday 3 August
Here's this week's Death's Door update! Still wanna try and do more bonus pages of this comic! ...But then when I sit down to draw it I also want to take a nap instead. Conflicting priorities...
Still a bit sick. Seeing doctors and stuff though, and trying not to let it slow me down too much. But it is slowing me down a little. I know, I been sick a whiiile. Been too sick this year, gonna be super stoked once I'm completely not sick.
Wednesday 2 August
Still not quite caught up, got a lot of stuff to do this week... but here's a New Game+ update! Feels weird to be updating these on a different day, throwing my whole feeling of what day it is off, haha
Tuesday 1 August
So! It occurred to me that Random Encounter is a very difficult comic to catch up on, due to how long it takes to draw a page. So instead of owing a page of that, I'm rearranging updates this week to hopefully sort everything out. Everything'll be shifted down one day until I'm caught up. So! Here's today's Random Encounter update!
Also feeling a bit under the weather again (dang stomach) and my arm is giving me a bit more trouble than usual this week, so there's a chance more updates will be delayed. Hopefully everything settles down and I can work through it, though!
Monday 31 July
Sorry! Very tuckered out from travelling, gonna call this one an early night. I've added this missed page to the tracker, so hopefully I can start getting caught up on those pages sometime...
Sunday 30 July
Right! Guess I'm just about done being on holidays, gonna fly home today and get back to work. But for now, here's a The Breaking update! "Tyrell, are you a cop? You gotta tell me if you're a cop." -Dyaris, probably
Saturday 29 July
True to form, I spent yesterday with a sore stomach and grumbling about walking, haha. But those are minor, because it was altogether a lovely day! I took a trip down to Tasmania to see an art exhibition I've been really excited about seeing, and it was even better than I thought it would be! Now to spend the rest of the weekend relaxing mostly. Less walking, more meandering. Less skipping breakfast, and more actually eating proper food at proper times, yesss
Anyway! Enough ramble, there's no Dhark's Hero Stories page this week so what there is is another Death's Door update.
Friday 28 July
Here's some kind of Random Encounter update!
It's true, I'm old now. I have trouble digesting food and I get tired easily and I can't lift anything heavy. Oh wait hang on... :P
Thursday 27 July
Aaaand here's today's New Game+ update! This week is going pretty OK. And pretty quickly! That's good.
Wednesday 26 July
Here's this week's Death's Door update. Unfortunately not a double-update this time... maybe I can sneak in more updates sometime later though, I would rather put out a lot of comics at once and push through all the most bummer part of the story, yes
Tuesday 25 July
Here's today's New Game+ update! I literally could not help myself, I had to make Break's grandpa say that :V
Monday 24 July
Time for a new week, and hopefully it is a much much better week than last week. Anyway, time for a Random Encounter update. Featuring a bunch of people who are not jerks (and also Loki)
Sunday 23 July
Here's this week's The Breaking update
Saturday 22 July
Here's this week's Dhark's Hero Stories update. Colour will follow a bit later. The previous page is also fully-coloured now, so definitely check that out
Friday 21 July
Here's a Random Encounter update
Thursday 20 July
Here's today's New Game+ update
