Small Delay on Next Episode

Sorry everyone, but it seems I'm gonna have to delay episode 6's start by one extra week. I haven't been able to draw recently because every time I've picked up a pen my entire back would seize up after maybe 30 mins, and the pain was just too much. I thought it was a back problem, but it turns out it's an intercostal rib muscle strain and I don't want to do anything in case it gets worse and breathing gets difficult or something. I have a buffer, but I'd prefer to just take an extended break now rather than risk having to stop mid-way into the episode.

Also sorry I'm terrible about replying to comments but I promise I am reading them!!

New year, new... method for uploading the backlog?

(if you saw a notificcation of this twice, oops I pressed the wrong button)

Well it's not the new year yet, but I thought now might be a good time to update you on whats going on!

Firstly, work on re-lettering the next episode has been much slower than expected. Not just becasue of the ~holiday atmosphere~ but becasue I finally upgraded CSP to EX, and it's sort of sped things up... except for the crashes when I try to copy in too much text at once. No idea why, some pages just do not want text added to them. All the old pages have to be manually edited becasue they were made in an old version of photoshop I lost ages ago in a crash (the comic was backed up thankfully) in a horrible, unreadable handwriting font that I can't show because I have no idea how to add images to this post oh god help me i am not good with computer

Secondly, I made a new profile pic for PMDA! This is about the limit of my animating skills so it's a little choppy but I think it looks good overall. Much better than the old cropped front cover at least!

And finally, the main issue: I've recently realised that spamming one page a day for months might not be the best way of uploading the comic. Instead, I was thinking of posting 6-7 pages all at once on like... a friday or something, OR 3-ish pages twice a week. It'll get done at the same speed, just how you see the pages will change. Let me know if you prefer one over the other or I'll just assume you love the spam ;)

Happy new year! (when it happens for real)

It Begins (the comic I mean)

I've been sitting on almost 200 pages of this Pokemon Mystery Dungeon comic for about 5 years now. I've improved a lot over the years so the pages start off pretty shakey art-wise, which is why I never got around to posting it anywhere. The longer I put it off, the worse the art got to my eyes, so I put it off more, and then smackjeeves died, and then deviantart followed suit etc...

But I've recently regained some of my motivation to post it, so here goes nothing! I'm gonna dump all 27 (!) of the prologue pages on y'all, then hopefully post a page of chapter 1 every day until we get to chapter 2, then I'll probably slow down to maybe twice a week hopefully? I've got a lot of buffer material (lol) so I'll see how things go.

And with that, hope you enjoy [b]POKEMON MYSTERY DUNGEON: ALLIANCE[/b], the 195,474,995,683rd pmd comic
