Just as we are coming to a close on the Candy Man story arc, I get my new computer:) I’ll spend the next few days getting it set up with big helps from TB. Don’t forget there’s a new voting incentive! I’ll let you all know when I get my fresh copy of Adobe Photoshop from CS5!
So last night, shards got a little role playing in. The characters played were Dorothy, Alice, Jack, David, and “Mr. Yet to be Named.” “Mr. Yet to be Named” got kicked out of the party so that Miss Muffett could come in due to…..conflicts of interest ;)! I think all of you will feel very sorry for “Mr. Yet to be Named” when you find out who he is. Cause he’s our 100 Facebook like bonus content character! That’s right! For those of you that don’t know, we have a standing deal that once we get 100 Facebook likes we will post a new character, his prologue, his roleplaying character sheet and powers, a pin up, and it will all be EXTRA CONTENT! Thats right you’ll get your standard updates + extra updates until the prologue is done!
We’re only 5 Facebook likes away people! Get your friends to like us! Word of mouth is the best way you can thank an artist that posts stuff for free :)!
Yep! Posting early! Just letting you know that I’m puting up a Mother’s Day poster on Sunday as a special treat to celebrate Mother’s Day this year. I am helping birth this comic, and I do have a 2 and a half year old. I think that means I gotta do something for the holiday:) Also, there’s a new voting incentive! Go go go! And enjoy the Mother’s Day poster!
Apologies for the next few weeks as I gain a technological upgrade and have to keep working with an old computer and sub-par programs to crank out Shards. Today’s strip, for example, had the program wig out on me so I published it as-is. Gonna post the slightly updated and fixed version so you can read all the dialogue right now. So what’s been causing all this fuss?
Well, TB just helped me buy a new computer today from Dell. It’ll get here in a few weeks, with my new Adobe software coming mid-June it looks like. For the price I got it for, it’ll be worth the wait. What does this mean? That I’ll be working harder to get more ahead on Shards just in case there are complications with the switchover from old to new computer. This also means that you will be seeing the not-as-good strips for several more weeks. I even did my Japan Needs Heroes submission on Adobe 7.0. Now, there’s nothing really wrong with that version of Photoshop. I just think my version has a glitch because it keeps opening up the stupid internet every other time I select a new color from the palette… And that can crash my poor old computer. So now ya know what I’ve been working with, you might forgive any delays of a few hours in the strip as I fight with my computer:) Now, on to playing get-ahead with Shards!
My submission to Japan Needs Heroes is finished! Yay! Don’t know what it is? Please check it out! It’s being backed by big names in both published comic and webcomic writers and illustrators, with a forward promised to come from Stan Lee himself! This project is HUGE! You only have a few days left if you want to contribute to Japan Needs Heroes, started by Benny Powell who does Wayward Sons. This is gonna be special, people:)
Okay, that was my announcement, aside from the incentives coming back every Thursday. Yay! So go vote for us!
