Hey guys, so I know there was a bit of confusion after 38 about that being the end.
It's not- there is still chapter 39 and an epilogue (40 chapters was always the plan)
You don't have to start missing it yet
And there is a sequel planned so, again, it'll be okay
BUT! Chapter 39 will be delayed to September 14th
BECAUSE I was drawing literally all of August- I went from working on Chapter 37 to finishing So Be It 5 and all my other deadline art pieces to working on Chapter 38 (which was 11 pages (a record size and finished at record time)) to trying to finish a bunch of art that I haven't posted here yet
to Chapter 39 now and
I'm still not tired of drawing- I have so many things I have inspiration to work on (and Chapter 39 is one of them)
but I ruined my last pen nib with all that drawing!! X"D
Like, it literally feels like I'm drawing with bad chalk that has a crack in it because my tablet has mock paper texture so it that makes a gross scratching noise, feels wrong, and leaves wonky lines, and I have to hold the pen a certain way and tighter which is messing with my wrist and everything about it drives me freaking crazy.
Normally I can draw for HOURS at a time with no breaks and no problems (I actually have a callus on my ring finger from my tablet pen because of how I hold it X"D) but when I tried to draw for an hour just sketching chapter 39, my wrist stung
and that has never happened before.Plus I feel the need to play video games again because I don't remember the last time I played a video game... I know I didn't play anything all summer and it was very sparse before then so I've just been binge playing ACNL and Assassin's Creed and Left For Dead 2 because killing virtual things helps me deal with my frustration with my shit pen
SO YEAH. I'm ordering new pen nibs today and they should be in Tuesday or Wednesday and I'll be able to finish Chapter 39 then.
I could try to rush it and use my bad pen nib anyway but I'm cameoing a bunch of your Rangers and I want it to look good so I'm just gonna push it back a week.
(which is really exciting btw because Alyona and Arlaena are so perf and it's a perfect way to bring Micah back in and I'm just really enjoying the scenes with them and I know you guys will enjoy it too!)
But I won't be taking a week off after that so the Epilogue will be out on September 28th as planned. :3
And I am so excited to be done with The Fall. I can taste the sweet freedom of working on new comics and side comics with all the precious children that I didn't have time to do before. *w*Plus I'm gonna do so many side comics with Alyona and Arlaena with Micah and Danny because they are all queens and this is the girl power club that was always meant to be
I still have to finish the gameplay for From Grace
and write the plot for real but I'll put a tentative starting date for the comic during/after Christmas break.
