So, this one has an interesting story. The guy who drew this was at the last SacAnime convention I went to. Nice guy, but had no interest in my comic at all. He just wanted to talk about his stuff – at length. And then he drew me this “fan art” of one of his characters putting Francis in a weirdly drawn headlock. I still have the original artwork stored somewhere, because it was such an amusing situation that I wanted to remember it.
Sorry I’ve missed so many Fan Art Fridays… when things get busy at the end of the week I lose track of stuff! Anyway, here’s another bit of Francis fan art (which was delightfully titled “Revenge is Sweet”), but I unfortunately don’t know who to credit it to. If it’s you, step forward!
Hey folks. I had to take an involuntary week off from the comic this week. I made the bonehead move of leaving my laptop one city over and wasn’t able to retrieve it until tonight (when the comic is supposed to go up). Thus, I also wasn’t able to log in to share this with you until now. Also, apologies to people who were waiting on comment approval.
There WILL be a strip up next week, so please just think of this as a quick vacation for me. If you’re missing Bardsworth and want more of it in your life, consider downloading the novel (nudge nudge, wink wink).
Thanks for your patience, folks.
For a while I was struggling to come up with some fun ideas for regular content updates for my $10 and up Patreon subscribers. Then I stumbled on a way of keeping up with the updates and flexing my art muscles! I’ve started doing portraits of the characters and experimenting with digital painting techniques. I figure by the time I get done doing all of my main and supporting characters, I should have some decent painting chops!
If you want to see these, as well as all previously uploaded patron-only content, become a $10 a month subscriber! You also get the monthly wallpaper, access to a large archive of old wallpapers (going all the way back to the beginning of the strip), and the satisfaction of helping out an independent artist. I think that’s worth the price of a few Starbucks coffees a month, don’t you?
Here are the teasers for the first couple of portraits…
Sorry, I’ve been missing a few FAFs, so continuing on our Francis journey is Prince Francis! This came my way after I first revealed that Francis was a “demon prince” (a rather simplified way of putting it, as you’ve come to find out). I wish I could remember who sent this to me, so if you happen to be following me, speak up! I like to give credit where credit is due.
