Sorry for yet another colorless update (and for still having one in the archive not yet colored). This past week was busy with my son’s third birthday and a couple of horrendous days at my job. I should be able to get both strips colored fairly quickly, though. And things should be going much smoother in the weeks to come (more on that as I’m able to speak of it). As always, thanks for your patience.
You know what they say – the best laid plans of mice and men…
I did not pack my Wacom’s USB cord for my trip this weekend, so I was not able to work on either coloring the previous strip or getting the new strip done. As such, Monday’s update will be delayed until Tuesday (hopefully) and will probably be in black and white as well. I’m going to continue moving forward in order to keep the story going and I will color the previous strips when I can.
My hope for normality has not yet come to fruition. Hopefully in the next few weeks things will smooth themselves out. Time will tell.
Just a quick post to let you guys know that Thursday’s strip wasn’t colored because we’re finishing up preparations for the Buffalo Small Press Book Fair this weekend. After this weekend the strips shouldn’t be as delayed anymore. But in any case, if you’re in the Buffalo area (or nearby), feel free to stop by!
Also, I wanted to say that I’ve really been enjoying the comments for this storyline. It was one that I wasn’t sure was going to be well-received, since it’s a little wordy (and possibly boring), but I wanted to give some depth to Crystal, her family, and the elven culture. It’s been a lot of fun to see people’s reactions to Berann, and I’m hoping by the end of the storyline he’ll be a character that people won’t forget.
As always, thanks for reading!
After a couple of ten-hour workdays, dealing with the DMV for hours on the phone, wrapping up my taxes, and still trying to maintain our household, Bardsworth had to take a back seat this week. I’m really sorry for no updates at all this week, but believe me when I say that things just kind of exploded in my face. Trust me, I really wanted to get the updates to you; there’s some important stuff in the works. But it just wasn’t meant to be this week.
Thanks for your patience and check back on Monday for a new strip.
No Monday update this week, Bardsworth readers (I need to get a good name for my readers… any suggestions?). I fell so far behind on my updates last week that I wasn’t able to get a jump on this week’s. I’ve been trying to finish off work on the print version on my book Fantasy Noir, and this coming week I’ll be working overtime at my day job. I’m pretty burnt out at this point, so I needed to take a step back from the comic for a bit. I will definitely try to get Thursday’s up.
In the meantime, how about enjoying some wonderful fan art from a reader? Recently I rebooted my deviantART page and was surprised – and flattered – to notice that someone had done up some fan art for Bardsworth. I don’t get much fan art these days, so any time I see any I do a little happy dance. So a big thank you goes out to 3fangs (Sara) for the awesome artwork! Please enjoy!
