return of the buffer

hello! if you're reading this at the time that it's been published, then i have GREAT NEWS! if you're reading it after thursday the 25th, then i guess this doesn't apply to you. but it's still great news.

the 15-page buffer for lucid spring has just been completed, literally like two minutes ago. that's right. only six months later, and the day of comicing has finally come!

so, beyond celebration, it's time to talk schedule. the prologue's title page, and its first page, are going to be up on thursday together, so check for both. after that, the comic is going to update once a week. at some point i plan to move the update day to monday! whenever that happens, i'll draw supplementary material (read: stupid mini comics and concept art) to hold the comic over from that thursday to that monday.

looking much much further into the future, if all goes well i will start updating lucid spring twice weekly. i am drawing faster every day, but i have to make sure i can support a 15 page buffer while putting out two pages per week.

the first few pages were drawn across several months, but after that, production sped up. so expect to see some different techniques and things at first as i worked out what worked best.

so, that's about it! the prologue, Pacem and Viktor, goes up on thursday.

prepare yourself for a strange world and all that slogany bullcrap, i don't even know, it's 1 am,

reboot spring

hey, all the three-ish people that read this comic. it's been, what? a year? hang on let me go check the exact time that it's been.

okay, yeah. it's been a year and a couple months since i updated this comic. there are a couple of reasons for that, most of them being the fact that i was in school and also lazy and incompetent. luckily that first thing has changed, maybe not so much the second one, but what i'm trying to get at here is i'm rebooting lucid spring. (with my improved art style. here's a glance at what the new pages will look like!) yeah. save these first couple of pages for posterity when this comic makes me a hundred thousand dollars because you're about to not see them soon.

here's what i want to do next!

  • how about a 15 page buffer, huh?
  • solid shading. none of that super blendy shit i've been doing.
  • never again will i handwrite speech bubbles. actually i'm probably still going to be handwriting speech bubbles. until i can find a: a better font and b: not sai because it doesn't have text.

so yeah, stay tuned in HOPEFULLY the next couple of months you tiny amount of people reading this. things may happen!
