Chapter 6, Page 25on May 15, 2015 at 10:11 am
. . . this is something new!
Well, finally finished it at 3 a.m. on Friday. Wonderful. You think I should switch my update day to Friday? I’m going to try it next week to see if I can handle myself for a change. Thanks again for bearing with me folks – we’re at the last ten pages or so and for some reason, they’re harder than any of the 170 that came before!
EDIT: THE GAME PLAN: Going to sleep 10 p.m. PST. Waking up at 1 a.m. Should finish the paint job / post-production by 4. 5 a.m. at the latest. I swear to God this is going to work, and I am going to stand by that right up until the moment when it doesn’t!!!!!!
UPDATE: VALIUM IS THE DEVIL. I took one (legally-prescribed) tablet to ensure that I would fall asleep at the correct time to pull off my plan. I should have heeded the words of Kurt Vonnegut in the Book of Bokonon: “Any man can call time-out, but no man can determine how long that time-out will be.”
The page isn’t even close to postable condition yet. I have no idea what to do.
SECOND UPDATE: After throwing my little fit on Friday, I went off on a vision quest to discover my spirit animal.
I discovered that my spirit animal is one of those little cloth rats with a bell tied to it they make for cats to play with.
I returned home bitterly disappointed and resumed work. New page Thursday.
“Guten Tag, Herr Vogel!”
If switching the updates to Friday results in less pressure on you, then by all means do that! (But, only *ten* pages left? Oh noes!)
Friday is more than fine,
And the last five on Saturdays.
Anyway. Only 10 to go? Sounds like they’ll stay, or at max switch realm only once more.
I know, I’m sorry. But if it makes you feel better, there will be some lovely finale art, AND I’ve taken several folks’ request to see a favorite character one more time. 😉
There was lovely finale art at the end of “The Bunny System”, which this is reminding me of more and more. Like the Bunnies, the Chats could have so many more adventures! But you *have* promised us a happy ending, sorta…
Uh :), Ice Cream!
or maybe just uneducated…
Whoa whoa whoa…
is this “last ten” for the chapter, or whole thing?!?
Unfortunately, Elyssa, you somehow managed to find me as the series is nearing its end. I’d give it about another two months, less if I can somehow find a way to get back to up to speed. But it’s not the end of comics, I promise you that. I like to die and come back like Lazarus!
Color takes time, and as we poor readers can’t afford to let you quit your day job, take all the time you need. The good stuff takes time, and your stretching things out means that we get to enjoy this story longer.
Sleep well, and if necessary publish on Monday.
That just prolongs our fun before it all ends.
No pressure. Art takes as long as it takes. We’d rather see you do your usual fantastic job than have you rush to just put *something* up. And, as Krulle points out, it makes our enjoyment last longer.
Sorry to hear that you’ve had a dissapointing weekend.
And rag rat? Poor Honeybun.
Take your time. The next page is ready when it’s ready.
I’ve been recently introduced to Outsider comic. Which went three years without an update. I am sooo hoping that the next “technical out-session” won’t take that long….
My power animal turned out to be a dust bunny.
Like I said, art takes as long as it takes. We’ll wait.
