Here's today's Loose Change update! Tubby rabbits can't run that fast, I bet. Mine sure can't. And she can't run home at the moment, anyway. My giant sussex hen stole the rabbit hutch for nesting in. So the rabbits are still housed in the shed for now. Tut tut.
AAAAaAAAAAAND following on from yesterday's massive ramble - that schedule up above? Is correct. Here's today's Random Encounter update! Last page of the current volume, and I'd like to pretend Tal isn't that guillible all the time, but... ehhh.
So! Schedule! I decided to go nuts, and I will continue to go nuts until probably the 23rd. Then from the 24th, I'll be updating Random Encounter daily more, but the rest of the comics will be on hold for fun holiday times. How is this going to work?? Just one extra Random Encounter page every day until the 23rd. That's the plan! Let's see how well that goes!
That's... only like, 17-ish comics I'll do a week for the next two weeks, OK? Or... less than that if the HSCM website continues to be down :V
So... don't be surprised if I do miss some updates, but y'know, nothin ventured nothin gained so I may as well give it a shot! I've got some stuff prepared, so it'll fluctuate between easy and difficult, heheh. See you tomorrow!
Monday 9 December
Hello, hello! Starting another week with a Random Encounter update! And the return of Nettle, to help wrap things up... but I have one more page left in this volume! Because mayyyybe we want to see what became of Jinx.
What else, hmmm. Well, it's almost the end of the year, and I am behiiiiind on comics. Before the Christmas volume for this year (that'll start on the 24th or 25th, I haven't decided yet P:) I do want to get the next main story volume started. But... it's going to shake a few things up around the school. So I have two smaller volumes that I want to get done before that one.
That I want to get done? Yeah, one of them definitely needs to be posted before then, the other one should be posted before then otherwise I gotta do some rescripting and redrawing and that's not fun, pssh. Redrawing? Yeah maybe I get overexcited and start random volumes early. That can happen.
...What's today's date? Too close to the 24th and/or 25th to get two volumes finished and a third one started? Possibly correct. I mean that's only... 4 Random Encounter update days. 1 for the end of this volume, 1 to start the next one... so either that gives me 1 day each to do each of them extra volumes, or I do something wacky with the schedule.
I'm all about wacky, but I think it depends on how quickly I can get the last page of the current volume done. Which is unfortunately probably not that quickly, since alas it does not take place on top of his hell of convenient hill, so I might have to draw some proper backgrounds. Heh.
Let me see, I think there was another thing, too... Ah yeah! Speaking of wacky schedules, just like last year, for the Christmas volume I will be updating them pages every day until them's done. Which is going to be 12 pages plus a title page. And I geniusly ain't started it yet so I can't guarantee that it'll be consistantly updated, but I can guarantee that I will try super hard. But that's when that comes up, for now, working on them other comics! And trying not to miss updates this week...
Sunday 8 December
OK, hopefully I'm back on-schedule now. Here's today's Daisy update! It's cell 3. Being able to draw cell 3 is the only reason I managed to get back on-track.
Actually, I take back what I said about hoping to be on-schedule. I want to be nuts over-schedule. Does that make sense? I dunno, how about a bonus update, to make up for some stuff I been missing? Here's an extra Random Encounter update! Because... I've got a ton of Random Encounter comics I want to get done before the new year, and I realise I'm pretty close to the end of this volume, and I didn't do a real update Friday SO OK THEN.
Saturday 7 December
Here's this week's New Game+ update! Oh Ades, your plans never go right tho. At least Bug is aware of it. Though he maybe feels a little responsible since him's the one who got Darkling in to join the Dark Powers anyway, I think.
Nowww.... I dunno if Daisy will update this week. Probably I want it to?? I like the next page, so that's a bonus. But I haven't started it yet, so I'll see how it goes.
Friday 6 December
Here's a Random Encounter comic! Umm, yeah, I went with a filler today. Still bumming around, like a bum. But this is what I would otherwise have used for the end-of-volume bonus comic. I'll put it there once I'm done with the volume, actually. Aaaand that is Ceraph Claw. I intend to have her as a reasonably important character in some comic, some time. 4 reals, though. The other Ceraph in the bottom-left is Pinion, the most ridiculous of clanners. He's a very nice guy... as long as you ain't an enemy of Ceraph.
Also that note is right and I really should do that, there is like a proper reason and junk but pffftttt drawing comics. I dunno when I'd fit it in, though.
Thursday 5 December
Here's today's Loose Change update! A familiar jerk, and hooray for buffers.
I will be back tomorrow, if not with the next proper page of Random Encounter then I will have a filler
Wednesday 4 December
Hellooooo. I have to get rid of one of my pets today/tomorrow, so I'm not in a good enough mood to get a comic finished. Sorry about that.
I have a buffer for tomorrow so that should be fine, and I'll see how we're going after that for Friday's update.
Tuesday 3 December
Here's today's Loose Change update! Nick is right, they a real bunch of weirdos. But then you got death priests, now they real weird. Aaaand also this is the last page of this volume! So, I guess I should get right on starting the next volume, oof!
Monday 2 December
What? It's December? And it's actually been December for over a day and I only just noticed?? Oof I need to get my comic-drawing butt in gear if I want to get all the comics done this year that I intended to.... so let's start this week with a Random Encounter comic! Uh, surprise? That just happened.
Ack, one of my resolutions for the year was to get up to volume 30 of this dang comic. We've got two weeks left of volume 26, volume 27 is done and posted, then I guess I'll start another volume easy for 28, 29 will be a Christmas volume...
Oh I can totally do 30. Mwahahaha *flails around wildly*
Sunday 1 December
Here I am with today's Daisy comic! Daren is obviously labouring under a misconception, what with Jinx being the worst- oh no wait, Jinx wasn't a trickster at this point since it takes place before Random Encounter.
Saturday 30 November
Here's this week's New Game+ update! Oh hey, finally that one lady who is in this comic is back in.
...I really need to introduce another lady character. Pbbbtttttt.
Friday 29 November
More Random Encounter comic! Oh, Jinx. For somebody who sucks at that one spell you seem to use it an awful lot. Also, still the worst trickster everrrr. But that's OK, Claw's probably the worst elemental ever so it all... evens out?? I dunno. I should be back with a New Game+ update tomorrow, though! Hopefully, it won't be late, anyway... I really ought to catch up on some commissions, so it might be a smidge late. But I don't want it to be! So we'll see what happenssss.
Thursday 28 November
Here's today's Loose Change comic! That's why ya always prank death priests. You wouldn't think it, but they're not that big on killing you if they find you out. Always a plus!
Wednesday 27 November
Here's this week's Way Back Home update! More stuff inspired by Tapewolf's Critical Mass? Yes very. I did think about having everybody's dialogue all scripted but it was super long and I think it works better this way. I think. I could be wrong.
Tuesday 26 November
Yep! Caught up just fine, so here's that late Random Encounter update! ...Jinx is the worst trickster ever, I think there would be very few others that wouldn't be running like buggery right now.
Now, if you're looking for less depressing comics... ah, don't come back tomorrow, because I bet the next few weeks of Way Back Home are going to be worse than usual. Hmmm.
Oh, I guess there's always that other thing. I forgot to mention earlier, but High School Changed Me is back online. It's not very exciting at the moment, but once it starts updating with new stuff starting this Friday, it should be much more exciting.
much more exciting
What's more exciting than that? Speedball's still powering along uploading the remainder of The Dragon Doctors, that's always exciting :3
Monday 25 November
Ummmm I know today's meant to be a Random Encounter update day, and I'd really like to get stuck into the next few pages of Random Encounter, BUT ALAS. I got stuck into family shenanigans instead, and only got time to sit down for comicking after 9pm. Which does not leave me enough time for Random Encounter, actually.
So! Today I'm posting an early Loose Change update! And then I will post a late Random Encounter update tomorrow instead! I hope!
Sorry! I will endeavour to draw ALL THE COMICS this week to make things up, yessss.
Sunday 24 November
Here I am with this week's Daisy update! Less depressing than this week's Random Encounter updates, I promise. Also, today's update has a cameo of a particular lovely hoss. Because sometimes you need a D'ymkarra in your comic. *nod nod*
