And as I expected, something blew up – in this case, it was my cat’s pancreas. I spent the weekend trying get a cat to eat and Monday and Tuesday outside a vet’s office (I couldn’t go in to the office because of covid) and I was drawing the next episode on my iPad. Turns out my cat has pancreatitis. (this cat, BTW, is the model for the dragon Nittles) I expect to have the new episode up Wednesday! <3 thanks for your patience!
Hi. I use an Apple iPad Pro (first generation- 2015) I’ve used the same one for five years and love it to pieces. I know the new ipads have more features but the original works well enough for me. I draw the comic using the Procreate app and letter it in Photoshop.
I totally agree! <3
I don’t want to jinx it but I think I’ll continue on this at-least-weekly schedule for a bit (i type that and expect my ipad to immediately self destruct). Big big thanks to everyone who subscribed here on GoComics and is supporting the story on Patreon.
I hope your 2021 is starting safe, healthy, happy an warm!
Every intoximancer keeps some handy!
I’ve uploaded a fix to episode 282 (October 20 on GoComics). It makes it clear when she put the glove back on. The fix should appear the next time the site updates. :) Thanks for pointing that out.
Yep! That got lost along the way and never got inked. I’ve gone back and added that and it should appear when the site next updates. :) Thanks for picking those nits! I’d hate for those kinds of errors to appear in a print collection.
I just went back and fixed that – adding the sword to the orc’s chest – it should appear when the site updates. :)
I appreciate your patience and I really appreciate you caring enough to comment. The slower pace was the result of my routine getting shattered in the last year (it feels like a massive copout for a webcartoonist to point at a global pandemic but it wrecked my freelance work and forced me to scramble to make up the difference. I’ve also been putting a lot more time and work into each episode (and even then, I’ve made a couple of obvious continuity errors – like a missing sword in this episode – which I just went back and fixed). I need to simplify things a bit – it’s pretty clear people would prefer more frequent episodes even if they’re less rendered. The next episode is a good example of me not knowing when to stop – and I’d still want to go back and add more stuff. :)
Oooh. I need to fix this – or I have to start handing out “No Prizes”. I got sooooo caught up in the rendering, the page was nearly done when I remembered the arrow in Phosphene’s shoulder. Again. my apologize for the glacial pace. I keep getting close to a normal schedule and then I spend two days coloring orc teeth. Thanks for the brilliant comments! <3
Thanks for the kind notes and e-mails! I’m excited to be back and I hope you’re all safe and well! Extra thanks to new Patreon supporters Zack, Patty, Steven, Randy, and An! <3 As a bonus for my kind Patreon supporters, all new and existing patrons who sign up by September 30 will get a PDF and/or printed edition of the new Tale from The Middle Age: Waddlebottom vs. The Hecklord short comic story.
