Moving Along

Published on by Professor Clockwork.

The day has come where I can announce that I will be transitioning into drawing and coloring the full pages for "Death at Sea". It's been slow to start, but I thank you for your patience if you're still with me. To prepare you for the continued wait I'll put the work into perspective: There are about 70 pages to draw and color for this chapter, and with no real time constraint I will be slowing myself down a bit when working on them to make sure they come out looking as good as possible. I may be able to manage completing one page a day, but commissions and other work will get in the way of that challenge.

On top of starting the actual pages I will be writing and story-boarding Chapter 2 (And any further chapters should I finish that) to keep the pace up and make sure the down time between chapters is as short as possible. I will confirm right now that I have every chapter for Book 2 planned out in full, so I'm not winging this story as I go along, nor will I suddenly drop this after like 3-4 chapters.

I still will not make a promise as to the date of release, but from what I said above you can estimate about the minimum time it should take. I will release updates when I am 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% done with the pages, and then make an announcement the day before I upload all the pages. I suggest changing your subscription feed to the blog instead of the main comic page so you get all the updates and don't end up with 70 notifications when all the pages are uploaded individually.

As always, thank you for reading, and thank you for your patience!

Still Moving

Published on by Professor Clockwork.

Over the past few weeks I've been putting work into several commissions as well as my other projects alongside the latest chapter, but I can now say that the work on those will be wrapping up fairly quickly, and I can then focus entirely on the chapter.

Story-boarding for 'Death at Sea' is almost finished, and I will transitioning to drawing the full pages. I plan to complete one page a day, which will be slow progress but will move the work forward at a steady rate.

Thank you for your patience. I will put out an update when I move on to drawing the pages.

Grand Opening

Published on by Professor Clockwork.

People were asking for some sort of update blog about the comic seeing as it no longer has a schedule, and as time went on it became a better idea since people might think this place is dead without it.

I'll try to keep updates consistent, but since they are going along with unscheduled work there won't be a schedule to these either.

I'm unsure as to what I should post without spoiling too much on upcoming chapters, so I'm open to suggestions in the comments.

I'll start this update blog off right with an update on the 'Death at Sea' chapter progress. I currently have the chapter written out, and am now story boarding the pages with minor revisions. The sketching is almost done and once it's completed I will start page revisions and slide right into drawing the full pages.

Once the chapter is finished and out the site's presentation will change with all pages from the chapter coming out at once, and each page will be displayed by themselves. No longer will the comics be presented in a long, scrolling page. Just a heads up. I will also update the navigation so you can go between chapters without having to backtrack and spoil the story for yourself.

Thank you for reading, and I'm glad you all stuck around through this down time.
