Photoshoot done!

2017

I finally got to get the photo-shoot for the next couple of comics done!  I should have enough pictures for three pages at least.

Most of the timing issues were my fault, as I am unusually busy right now, so I am thankful that the model was willing to work with me on that.

So now I am pulling out the good photos, organizing them and getting them edited into a usable comic page!

The next page is coming soon!

One Shot Role Play – First Contact

First Contact

When: Sunday, July 9th 2017

Where: Second Life

It has been over a thousand years since the Great Divide that split the continents and the creatures that lived upon them. The fae and humans have rebuilt their civilizations to the best of their ability on their long isolated landmasses.

Humans: Their numbers nearly decimated, it has been a struggle to regain the footing they lost during the downfall. Because of their relatively short life spans the fae have become subjects of myths and legends and most people have begun to focus on science to improve their life. The humans are now within the grip of an industrial revolution but they are beginning to realize their power sources are slowly killing them. Coal and oil has allowed them to build wild and strange machines but it is a dirty power source and the even the wealthiest people are beginning to suffer because of it’s slow creep of death and destruction across their lands.

Fae: Fae are long lived and powerful, though their memory is fickle. There are those who still remember human beings, though after a thousand years the details tend to blur. There are also many new fae who have never experienced the humans’ touch of mortality. They are a wary bunch, knowing there are creatures out there even more deadly than they are. They are creatures of magic so science has never taken root in their society. Why would they need it? Their magic does what ever they need it to do. If they cannot do the magic they need themselves, they certainly know of someone who can. Thus the Fae have tight knit networks of information. This is their true source of wealth. In a rigidly hierarchal society they can only move up in the ranks out of might or usefulness.

The Story: The humans need a better power source for the future of their survival so they begin to travel farther and farther from the ‘Civilized’ world. It isn’t until an intrepid group of Air Pirates are forced out into the vast expanse of the Great Waters as a last ditch effort to avoid certain doom that they discover the wondrous world of the fae, long thought lost. This is the story of the First Contact between human and fae after the 1000 year divide.

 

You have the choice of playing on the Fae side, or on the Human side.  I will mark the professions that are chosen as they come in.  First come first served.

Humans – Choose a profession:

I will work with you to create your character before the game itself. Submit the form below and I will contact you directly.

 

Patreon Rewards Update

To make the Patreon rewards more useful to folks, and easier for me to achieve on a monthly basis, I have updated them.

I have adjusted the price tiers to those that are most used, and given folks at each tier some fun things to experience.

One of the big changes is that I will be holding a monthly Q&A session on Facebook Live for everyone!  So if you haven’t liked the Facebook page do so now and you won’t miss a thing!

The first Facebook Live event will be June 14th at 6:00 cst.

The $3 and $10 tiers were dropped so that I can give you more bang for your buck on the other tiers.  I think it is going to make a big difference.

If you aren’t familiar with my Patreon page, head on over and check it out!  We would love to have you.

I hope you have a great day!

The Dreams of Innocents

Writers create a world when they write.  It’s usually huge and vast and rarely ever seen in the actual story in it’s full glory.  Sometimes it’s not.  But my worlds are just that, filled with history and characters that rarely get explored in the main story-line.

So I offered my Patrons the ability to see into a small section of each character to give a more detailed view of who they are and what their motivations are.  They are 1-2 page comics that really are just character studies but they are fun and give you insight on the character.

So I asked my Patrons if they would be okay with me sharing these comics with you after a while, so that the general reader can get those same insights.  They said they had no problem with it.  (I love my patrons!)

So two months after the Patron’s get the first look, you will be able to see the comics too!  They will only come out once a month, and will be posted on the first Thursday of the month.

Look for the first one next week!

Happy New Year!

A new year is like a blank book, and the pen is in your hands. It is your chance to write a beautiful story for yourself.

Happy New Year!

Decorating the Hovel

2016.12.20_002.png

Clio’s house is featured predominantly in the upcoming page of the comic so I have spent much of my time getting it ready for its big debut.  Little details make the scene, so I am making sure that those little things are perfect.  Everything in the scene has a story.  I do that mostly because I’m a masochist but also because it adds depth to a scene and allows the visuals to be more than something overly simple.  Most of what is out there won’t ever make it to print, but it *might* so I spend time making the environment, rather than just a few out of place scenes.

It’s nearly done, then I can get the photos for the next page of the comic, edit them together and have something to post come next Tuesday.

That is, so long as the holidays don’t steal all my time.  I’ve got quite a few things that need to be done for home and family and they come first.  I’m sure you all understand that, so thank you for your patience.  I will do my best to get a comic out asap!

So it Begins…

2016.12.13_003.png
Realizing I wouldn’t be able to continue to fill this comic on the regular without having a sim to use for the builds needed, I decided to go ahead and purchase a half sim plot of land in Second Life to create the scenes I need for the upcoming pages.

I am still holding the first goal at $150 so that I can pay for this sim, but I can’t wait any longer to put it together.

That means I will be spending the next week or so building said scenes so that after the holidays I will be able to create the comic the way it was meant to be created.

I’M SO EXCITED!

I will be posting pictures of the progress here and on Patreon so stay tuned for some really amazing stuff!

That being said, because of this, there will be no comic this coming Tuesday as I build the set needed for the next page. Instead you will get flooded with in progress shots of the sim as I work on it.

Thanks for hanging in there with me!

Cleaning up the Comic

Howdy folks!

I’ve finally had an editor go over the comic and they have given me feedback on stupid misspellings and punctuation mistakes.  I will be fixing these issues and re-uploading the comics one by one as I can get to them.  This will also allow me to tweak the speech bubbles a little bit too.

The story won’t change, and the art will stay the same.  I’m just polishing the comic so it doesn’t have silly errors that totally should have been avoided the first time around.

Be seeing you!

Clio’s New Look!

Thank you to the Patrons who voted for Clio’s new dress!
Everyone seemed to love the Whimsy dress by Wishbox! I honestly can’t blame them, it looks so cute on her! Now you folks know why I love Wishbox so much!
You’ll be seeing both Clio and her new outfit in the upcoming pages.
Stay tuned!
