Today's comic, Random Encounter, for Monday 26th of June 2017
Monday 26 June
Random Encounter has updated! And in a few short hours I head to the airport and then on to the US, and then on to Anthrocon! I've set up an auto-updater, so for the next ten days (assuming I wrote it correctly, haha) there will be a small Random Encounter filler volume going up!
I haven't written news posts to go with the updates though, so keep an eye on the date at the top of the page! I'll see you all on the other side~
Sunday 25 June
Here's this week's The Breaking update! Back to Dyaris for now~ well, for right now, since next week there won't be a The Breaking update. Hopefully should be the week after, though.
Haven't decided yet what exactly will update tomorrow. Next week will be entirely Random Encounter though, mostly or entirely a filler volume. If I get time to draw the next actual page before I leave then I'll post that, otherwise, full filler ahead!
Saturday 24 June
Getting awful close to the end of the week! Here's this week's Dhark's Hero Stories update! Colour will be up a little later, but hey welcome to the new volume!
Friday 23 June
Whaaaat happened?! When did it get so close so the end of the week? Well! Guess it's time for a Random Encounter update!
Like I mentioned in less detail earlier, from Monday I'll be on holiday. I'm going to Anthrocon! Which is a long trip for me, being all the way in Australia and Anthrocon being all the way on the other side of the USA from here. So that'll be a fun trip! And I'll be posting some filler comics while I'm gone. Which should be like 12 days? I mean I know how many days I'll be gone, but I'll also probably post a bit of filler while I get over the tiredness from travelling so far. Slowly getting together what I'll post and hopefully there will be enough to cover the whole time, but if there isn't... well, I'll just post whatever I get done.
Thursday 22 June
Here's today's New Game+ update! Dark's story may be a little familiar to some... but that'll have to wait for at least an extra week! Still working on what I'll be posting next week while I'm on vacation, but it's going pretty well so far. Hopefully I can keep that up a bit. We'll see.
Wednesday 21 June
Slowly creeping through the week! Here's this week's Death's Door update! Very persuasive.
Tuesday 20 June
Right! Time for a New Game+ update! Things going right for a change?? Preposterous.
Monday 19 June
Here's today's Random Encounter update! Not late for a change, woo.
Also, a week from now is when I head over to the USA for a bit over a week, so... trying my hardest to build up a bit of comics to run during that time, but we'll seeeeee. Whatever I get done I'll queue to post while I'm gone. Hopefully I can get together a lot more than I have done so far, because so far I only got 5 pages and that is nnnnnot enough.
Sunday 18 June
Time for this week's The Breaking update! I guess we're all caught up on Deimi for now... so maybe next week we can check up on what Dyaris is up to!
Saturday 17 June
Right!! Sorry again for the delay, on top of everything else my body is still slowly healing and I still do feel a mite unwell. Getting better, but still less than healthy. I'll be very happy once everything's right again I think!
Anyway, lots of things for you today! Here's yesterday's delayed Random Encounter update! I also removed Monday's filler from the archives for now, I'll slot it in a better place in the archives a bit later.
There's also the start of the new Dhark's Hero Stories volume! The previous page is also coloured, too
Friday 16 June
Sorry! Still moving slow, so today's update will be delayed. It's more than halfway inked, so I don't think there will be any problems getting it done for tomorrow though!
Thursday 15 June
As promised, today's New Game+ update is the title page for the new volume! It's not called "Death", so that's a good sign, right?
Wednesday 14 June
Time for this week's Death's Door update! Leo will probably have to pay to repair Tish's door, yes
Tuesday 13 June
Right!! Time to get caught up on some of the updates I've been missing... so here's a triple New Game+ update! All caught up on that. Random Encounter will take a bit more doing, though, bwah...
That's the end of this volume too, so Thursday's update will be a title page for the next one!
Monday 12 June
Still breaking in my tablet, unfortunately! Looks like it's going to be a long process, which is a bummer because comics already take so long to draw. So for today there's another filler Random Encounter update! And hopefully things move along a bit quicker here and I can get things back to normal..
Sunday 11 June
What time is it?? Comic time! Here's this week's The Breaking update! Yesterday's Random Encounter page is now shaded too.
Saturday 10 June
Double-update today!! But sort of, double half update? They're both half-done. Things get in the way of drawing comics and it would be nice if they didn't, haha. But anyway!
Random Encounter updated! And will be shaded tomorrow morning, hopefully. This new tablet, ugh. Breaking them in is such a pain... everything goes so slowly...
Dhark's Hero Stories updated too! Last page of the volume, because apart from his massive ego, Mort doesn't have much else to talk about. Colour will be up later on, and then... new volume!
Friday 9 June
Sorry for the continued delays! I've gotten some work done on the next Random Encounter page though, so it will go up tomorrow. SOMEHOW!!
Also pretty sure I just asked life to stop coming at me, but it feels an awful lot like my throat hurts a lot and I am maybe getting a cold??
LIFE. SETTLE DOWN.
Thursday 8 June
OK! Sure would be nice if life would stop coming at me this year, but anyway the next page of New Game+ is up! Lots of things happening or about to happen here, hrmmmmm!
Wednesday 7 June
Here's today's Death's Door update!
Haha, well, little did I know that my tablet breaking was the least this week had to offer. Seems like it's going to be a bad week! But I'll endeavour to update comics, regardless of what else happens...
Tuesday 6 June
Sorry about the delay! Went out and got a replacement tablet, which was faaaairly painless? Except they don't make the sort of tablet I had anymore so getting used to a different model is taking a while. Added to the general stiffness of a new tablet and it's making things go extra-slow, which isn't very helpful! The next New Game+ update is well underway, but if I push it too hard I'm going to injure my wrist and I don't really want to do that, so I'll take it as quickly as I can without hurting myself... and have that next page up another day. Tomorrow, maybe? Or more likely Thursday...
Monday 5 June
Here's a kind of Random Encounter update! What is up?? Not my tablet, it is down. Or... does that make sense? At any rate it is broken, so it is time for the apparently annual pilgrimage to get a new tablet. Hence, the markery comic update instead of like, the next actual page ;V wooo
This week is going to be kind of hecticccc so hopefully with this and that and the other thing I don't miss out on any more updates...
At any rate, Saturday's Dhark's Hero Stories is now coloured so there is that!
I also did a guest strip for Critter Coven, definitely another thing to check out!
Sunday 4 June
Aaaand finally, time for this week's The Breaking update! Ingray sisters met so far: 3/5
Saturday 3 June
Here's this week's Dhark's Hero Stories! Nova has story critique for Mort. Totally fair. Mort you need a better story. And - just outlines for now, colour to follow!
Hands up who is glad it is the weekend!! Me I am stoked because it has been a long week and I am feeling pretty done with things. Rest time definitely needed. I will spend my rest time... drawing comics. Maybe. Either that or playing Castlevania... hrmm...
Friday 2 June
Here's today's Random Encounter update! Well then! Now that's out of the way... next page I can go back to what the volume's about; shuffling Loki and Danni out on a quest!! ...hopefully.
Thursday 1 June
Happy June! Here's a New Game+ update!
Oh heck... June already?? But.. I really need to get my act together to cover updates for the end of this month, aaaa. Gonna be away, far away overseas, for like a week and a bit, and going to Anthrocon. Definitely going to have to get comics prepared beforehand so that there are updates to go up!! Dang illnesses getting in the way of my brilliant plans of actually having buffer, I really, really, really need to work hard the next few weeks!
Wednesday 31 May
End of another month? Dang where did the time go... anyway! Time for this week's Death's Door update! Tish is maybe taking this too lightly. Or maybe not?? I guess she'll find out.
Tuesday 30 May
Here's today's New Game+ update! Oh. I guess not R.I.P. that big jerk nobody liked, because Art was a fan of his for some reason. R.I.P. that big jerk that only one guy liked. And... I should probably lay off Grain, he is not having a great journey where he gets to keep all of his limbs and in working order. Dude'll run out of limbs at this rate.
Monday 29 May
Here's today's Random Encounter update! Dar has been thinking about this speech for weeks. Geez, the king really musta gotten to Dar when they talked, huh?
Also I should not have drawn Drake in her freaking banana pyjamas, purely because stripes!! I have to keep drawing stripes!! Pfffft.
Also... pretty much one week of not being super sick! That's pretty good. Feels like my gut are starting to settle down properly. Hopefully this trend continues.
Sunday 28 May
Aaaand one more page of The Breaking to even out the week! Reasons not to heal Deimi #1: Dharfi don't know healing magic.
And now I sleep so hopefully I got the energy to get tomorrow's Random Encounter done on time, zzzz
Saturday 27 May
Next page of Dhark's Hero Stories will be a bit delayed, so what better time than to catch up on that update for The Breaking that I missed while sick and needed to catch up on? No better time!
Ummm. Bit on the nose there, Dev.
Friday 26 May
Here I am with today's Random Encounter update! Er... don't look at me, I'm as surprised as anyone that I've managed a whole week of updates so far. This is a nice change. Well... to be honest I've fallen a bit behind on other comics, but like... two Random Encounter updates in a week and they aren't late?? That's pretty zany
Anyway, hey! Had enough volumes around DHS and Mylenor lately, time to go afield!!
Thursday 25 May
Here's today's New Game+ update! R.I.P. that big jerk who nobody liked. I think I was going to write something else but I forgot. Zzzz still quite tired, but feeling much less sick so that is faaaaantastic
Oh!! Right. I revamped the Gods page because all the old pages were outrageously full of errors. And typos, so many typos... Remind me if I forget, at some point this year I really ought to add the creation triad (Gaea, Luna, Sola) in there.
Wednesday 24 May
Time for this week's Death's Door update! Tish is your primary concern right now really whether or not you can "kill" something undead?? Priorities, Tish.
PS. if you are undead, never attack the a death priestess that's just asking for trouble
Tuesday 23 May
Here's today's New Game+ update! Alastair: still 2spooky4bug
Monday 22 May
Finally got an on-time, proper Random Encounter update! Just regular weekend mornings. Definitely nothing exciting.
And I've also joined the Wool Wolf comic collective, it's just starting up. That's what that neat logo to the right is!
Sunday 21 May
Aaand time for today's The Breaking update! If Syrras wasn't such a terrible shapeshifter she probably could have finagled some way out of this. But she's a bit scared to get zapped, and possibly a little sleepyhungry.
Saturday 20 May
Time for Dhark's Hero Stories! Been a while, now Puyon's on term break and it's time for comics! And for tiny Mort :3
Friday 19 May
Sorry for the lengthy delay on this one, but here's a half-size Random Encounter update, to go with that other one! I'm still moving pretty slowly, but doing significantly better than I was so heyyy that's all good. Hopefully no more comic delays!! But realistically there may be some since I'm still moving slow. Well! I'll do my best!
Oh, and while I'm talking about comics... tomorrow Dhark's Hero Stories will be coming off hiatus! So there's that to look forward to!
Thursday 18 May
Oof! Alright!! Feeling a little better than I have been, so that is good! Hopefully this new trend continues!! And also, there is a New Game+ update! Comics and health, two trends that are welcome to continue. And Alastair throwing dirt in Ada's eyes, yeah they never expect powers to use mundane methods of attack...
Wednesday 17 May
Here's this week's Death's Door update! Featuring me not being nice enough to immediately show what's happening with Tish, mwaha.
I sure am sick of being sick though, ugggh. Finally mostly healed from surgery (well, still a few weeks before I can carry anything heavy) and right back into feeling the same sort of sick I was before surgery?? Nnnnot great. I may miss some more updates this week, but I'll see how it goes
Tuesday 16 May
I think today's update speaks for itself. Zzzzz
Also feeling quite ill still and that is noooo gooooood. Gotta get back to the doctor's again and be like "Hey I don't got a gall bladder no more, why come I still can't eat food". And then... feel better and draw more comics!! That's the plan
Monday 15 May
S-s-s-s-super sleepy after what this weekend turned into. So no update today. But... uh... hopefully the following week is nice and smooth, and then I should be able to get an extra update done on Saturday to make up for it, maybe?? And also not miss any more updates *is super hopeful*
Sunday 14 May
Here's this week's The Breaking update! Been a very rough few days, so just flats at the moment. I'll have to see how the next day goes, I may miss an update or two depending on what happens.
Edit: shading's up now. You may need to refresh to see it
Friday 12 May
Yesterday's New Game+ update is now coloured, and me I am still a bit green around the gills, so I couldn't get a proper page done today, but there is still some sort of Random Encounter update! Here is to feeling better over the weekend. Because otherwise it is back to the doctor with meeeee
Thursday 11 May
Here's today's New Game+ update! Well, no colour just yet, hoping I'll get that up tomorrow though... feeling sick again. ...still? Ugh, not totally sure but I am feeling awfully like I was prior to getting my gallbladder removed so I'm not super happy about that. Hrmmmm hopefully this feeling goes away soon, but two days of having trouble eating food again.... not great.
Wednesday 10 May
Time for this week's Death's Door update! Tish... bad idea.
Tuesday 9 May
Here's today's New Game+ update! Dude, I think I have a problem. I reaaaaally need to stop killing Ceraph Clanners, huh?
Monday 8 May
Continuing to move slowly! Since I knew I wouldn't have the energy to do a full page today, I've got a half-size Random Encounter update! Not the most auspicious start to a volume, but it's still a start!
I'm also still trying to prepare comics to post during the middle of the year while I'm on holiday. It's coming up fast though, I really doubt I'll be able to build up that buffer that I used up again. So I'm going to try to do a Random Encounter filler volume to post over that time! I've started it, slowly, and I'm tracking it at the bottom of my IOU list. AC: 1/12! I think I need 12 pages to cover my holiday, but uhhh we'll see what I come up with.
Sunday 7 May
Here's today's The Breaking update! Featuring Syrras and her many wings, since that was the consensus on the forums! I am super glad it is the weekend, now I can lie on the couch most of the day again, much less painful than sitting up in front of a computer yes.
I also finished colouring Friday's Random Encounter update finally!
Saturday 6 May
Well! Ended up being another sore day, so I haven't gotten yesterday's page coloured quite yet, but I have gotten the title page for the next Random Encounter volume done! Now I sleep, zzz
Friday 5 May
Ended up being a bit of a rougher day today than I would have liked. Very sore, needed a while to recover once I got home from work, so I didn't quite get tonight's page finished... but I did get it inked, anyway! So here's today's Random Encounter update, it will be coloured tomorrow and I plan to also post the title page for the next volume then as well! Fingers crossed that everything goes a little more smoothly tomorrow than it did today. Dang abdominal surgery, why you gotta take so long to heal (still so glad it was done though, man I am sooo much better than I was before)
Thursday 4 May
Hooray, got some comic work done! Here's today's New Game+ update! What's that time? Time for things to go wrong again.
Got Monday's Random Encounter pages done too, so hopefully if I can continue on this little productive streak I can get that volume finished toorrow, and start the next one! We'll see what happens, naturally.
Wednesday 3 May
Here's this week's Death's Door update! Lion vs vampire. Not a thing I ever expected to draw
Tomorrow's New Game+ update is likely to be delayed, on account of I haven't drawn it yet and I got a lot of other things to do. But we'll seeeee. Friday's update I don't want to miss, but we'll seeeeee about that too since I still need to colour the last two pages.
Tuesday 2 May
Here's today's New Game+ update! The previous page is now fully coloured, too.
Back at work this week, and it's a bit rough to sit upright for an entire work day, oof. Means I'm especially tired and makes it a bit hard to get comics done, but I'll keep getting done what I can get done! I don't want to miss updates, but we'll see what happens. There's a good chance the next New Game+ update will be a bit delayed. I hate to miss updates, though! I really want to get New Game+ finished up this year, but it's going to take quite a bit of doing, there's still tons of pages left.
My main goal for this week is to get up to the next volume of Random Encounter! That might also take a lot of doing. I've been slowly writing a proper outline for the next volume today, it's a story that I first came up with quite some time ago (well, a good chunk of the volumes are), and one that I've tried to line up to start a few times already... but I've only just built up the confidence to try and tackle it. So! Hopefully that goes well. It's gonna be a Danni story. And a Loki story. And a dragon story. Assuming that I don't change my mind between now and then, haha. I do have a track record of changing what volume I decide to draw at the absolute last-minute. We'll seeee
Monday 1 May
Well! A little bit of catch-up, a little bit of fall-behind. I've got a double Random Encounter update up! ...Only it's not shaded just yet. I've got a lot of colouring to catch up on this week! Might miss an update or so this week too, still slowly recovering. But I'll continue to do my best!
Sunday 30 April
Slowwly working on Random Encounter. Been a bit of a rough day, I think I may have overdone it a bit. Looks like I might not be able to make up for a missed update just yet, but with any luck I won't be missing Monday's update! At any rate, I do have today's The Breaking update! And... actually I haven't yet written the next page of that, so as for that last panel, yeah if you've any particular preference for where the focus shifts next, feel free to post about it on the forums!
Saturday 29 April
Still working my hardest! But it's just all happening at a lower level since I'm healing. I hope to have a Random Encounter page done tomorrow! ...though, not sure if that will happen. It'll be done by Monday! I'd really like two RE pages done by then, but uh, we'll see. Either way, I'll certainly endeavour to have The Breaking done tomorrow! Got lots to do
Friday 28 April
No matter how much I want to draw one, I know I'm too tired and sore tonight to draw a Random Encounter page... so I decided instead to tackle something from the IOU bucket, so here's an extra Death's Door update! I've also coloured the previous page of that one. Still haven't gotten New Game+ coloured though, working quite slowly!
I'm extremely hopeful I'll be able to draw a Random Encounter page tomorrow, but uh... we'll see how I go.
Thursday 27 April
Still very sore! Ughhh heal faster guts. But there is a New Game+ update today! Uhhh, still haven't been able to do any colour though, sorry! I might try to catch up on colouring the past two day's updates tomorrow instead of posting a Random Encounter update, depends on how things are going.
Wednesday 26 April
Still sore and tired, so it's just inks for today's Death's Door update. But it feels like it's been a very long time since I drew one, so I figure lines are better than nothing!
Chances are pretty good I'll miss more updates in the latter half of this week, got lots to do still and really still feeling knocked out. Really this should be my second week of bed rest, but... endless things to do
Tuesday 25 April
Here's today's New Game+ update! Alastair is the only one here who is kind of having a good day
