Getting much closer to actually being able to mention the Orc Lady’s name, thank goodness.
Another page done :)
Also, trivia time – I started this comic because, back in 2010, I wanted to submit a shorter webcomic to Crossed Genres for the membership section of their website. If I’d gotten in, I would have had to limit the story to 52 pages (one per week for a year). So if that had been the case, this page – the 52nd – would have been the last one.
While it would have been nice to have a finished comic by now, and I do struggle with getting pages done, I’m still glad where I’m at now and how much further I’m able to go with the story as it has developed.
Happy new year, everyone :)
Also, still watermarking the pages now, and I didn’t do as much editing post-scan on this one. Please let me know if looks different in a bad way. And of course, thank you for reading.
This is one of those moments where I’m sure, if logic prevailed, Bumble would try to have Tock committed.
Fun fact: I keep the original copies of each page in an Itoya portfolio, and as of this page, I’ve finally filled one up :)
Remember all those times I said exciting things were coming and I promised all the delays and hiatuses would be worth it?
This is the moment all that officially starts.
(Or in other words, if its not obvious what’s happening here, I’m not doing my job right.)
Hot off the presses, but still officially the last page of 2012 :)
Have a great, and safe, New Year’s!
(Note: You also might notice that the Orc’s hair is a bit different now. I found the white linework in it, as originally seen in page 42, waaaaaaaaaaay too distracting. So that page will be updated later this week as well.)
Fun fact! Bumble is one of those people who only gets religious when he’s in mortal peril.
And here it finally is.
Also, I made the file a bit bigger than usual, in order to make Bumble’s speech bubble legible. In case it isn’t though, he’s saying “Oh, all my rusted gearsprings.”
And as long as this size shows up okay, I’ll be keeping them this large from now on.
Aaaaaaaand we’re back to the argument they were in the middle of when the bird attacked, basically.
Tock has opinions about Bumble’s opinions, which are really someone else’s opinions.
And we finally get to see Tock’s outfit from this part’s cover page in full! Probably my favorite clothes to draw so far.
Quick note about this page – as I’m using an external monitor until I can get my laptop’s monitor fixed, the greens might look a bit…..off, compared to previous pages.
If that’s the case, prepare to see this page tweaked once my computer has its own monitor back.
Aaaaaaaaaand we’re back!
Updates will be back to Mondays weekly, with pages every other week for sure (meaning there will be sketches and bonus information on non-page weeks). Thanks to everyone for your patience during the hiatus. I hope you’ll think it was worth the wait :)
