So, as I type this, there’s about a week left until I run out of pre-made comics. The last finished page is scheduled for October 27th. As I’m sure you remember, the move has left me in temporary lodgings for the forseeable future and without my art supplies, for they are trapped in storage, and I can only do finished art with Photoshop at the moment. I didn’t want to continue the current story with a totally different artistic style because that would just feel really disjointed and awful, so instead, this is what I’m going to do:
Pause the current storyline, first of all. For the week beginning with Halloween, there’ll be two filler art posts instead of comics.
After that, I’m starting a new, entirely digital art side story for a while that’ll follow Renn’tekk around. Because I don’t know how long it’ll have to be, I’ll have to stay resourceful with my storytelling. It might stay as more of an exploration of the tekk way of life, or, if things go on longer than expected, I might have more than one side story (fortunately, I have plenty of ideas). Either way, I’m getting ready to post it. I have the first page completely done already and the first ten or so weeks scripted. That story will be posted on Mondays, and Thursdays will be filler art.
When I do eventually get a new home and/or a way to unpack my possessions from storage, I’ll get the hiatus stor(ies) to a good ending, compile it all into a downloadable file that I’ll make available to everyone, and remove it from the archives so that it’s not in the way of a normal read-through in the future. Then I’ll continue the current storyline as if nothing ever happened (as long as one is willing to ignore the gap in time stamps). That way everyone gets exciting new content, I get to keep my skills updated, and the actual plot doesn’t get messed up in the long run.
Again, I’m sorry for all the kerfuffle. I hope this rings as a good solution to a weird situation. I’m looking forward to showing you a different side of the world of the tekk and tikedi, myself. 🙂
