This week’s episode may have been just an excuse to draw THAT FACE! :) Appearance news: This coming weekend (March 24-25), I’ll be a guest of the SCComicon in Greenville, South Carolina. Look for me under the giant banner for The Middle Age! It’s a wonderful, old-school comic-con that really loves comics! If you’re in the area, I hope to see you there!
If you like words with your pictures, this week’s episode is for you! Extra thanks to this week’s new Patreon supporter Anthony!
I appreciate the note, Mel-T-Pass! I hate when those errors sneak through and I really appreciate you calling them to my attention! A corrected version has been uploaded and will soon replace the first version. Thanks again! — Steve
There’s less than three days to go on The Middle Age Kickstarter and we’re just one or two backers shy of a bonus enamel pin for every supporter! :) And by request, I’ve made just the books available as a set. You can check it out here: http://bit.ly/tmapins Thanks again! – Steve
Love the comments! <3 Today’s Completely Authorized and Totally Unofficial Unpaid Editorial Intern (not valid for college credit) is Skyfisher. Skyfisher pointed out that I had failed to draw the large welt on on Sir Quimp’s head. I was so caught up drawing that tree, that I missed that. (Yes, I failed to see the forehead for the trees.). The new version should be swapped in shortly. :) Kickstarter update: the project is now funded with plenty of pin and book sets still available! Learn more here: http://bit.ly/tmapins
Doh! I totally messed that up! I’ve fixed it and the strip should be replaced shortly. :) I guess I shouldn’t hit my own head with large rocks for reference.
The Middle Age joined GoComics in June of 2017 but it started the previous July on my own site. And the writing and planning for the strip goes back to 2015. One of the earliest sketches was our hero carrying Jarn and Nittles – though he was Sir Diddums back then and the dragons didn’t have names. :)
This week’s episode was a lot of fun to draw! I’ve been waiting two years to draw our hero running and carrying the two baby dragons. I didn’t expect him to be all cut up with a giant welt on his head, but here we are. :) I also have the art popping out of the panels in all directions. I need more self control! In other news: The Middle Age kickstarter is going on now with limited-edition enamel pins available. You can learn more at http://bit.ly/tmapins
I really tried to keep it consistent. Though, maybe he broke a chunk off with that second WHACK! :)
