NoiV of the webcomic Secrets of the Afterlife did this wonderful holiday piece featuring Kaza and Gwenna. I really love the way Gwenna looks in this pic and the dress she's wearing.
Crisis Down the Yellow Brick Road wrapping upNext Saturday's comic will be the finale for Crisis Down the Yellow Brick Road. Then as we head into September, the second half of Situation on Earth-N starts up. I have 9 pages completed for it already, and just to try and speed things up I'll be posting two updates a week (Wednesday and Saturday) during September. My slow pacing for my stories, combined with a once a week schedule has been something of an issue for me. I'm trying to see if I can improve my productivity and expand my update schedule.
Deleting a couple pieces out of the GalleryThat new piece I just added makes mention of an argument I had with the organizer of the latest exchange. It's someone I had done exchange art before, but I will not have anything further to do with him. So I'm removing those pages from the gallery. It is rather petty of me I know, but I do find this situation annoying and aggravating and felt the need to do something.
Forgot to mention the Comic's AnniversaryJuly 5th 2010 was the day I posted the first page of The Serpent Sorceress story and now seven years later I have 217 pages of my own making plus another 110 pieces of fan art and exchange art from various folks on and off Comicfury.
I've tried doing a couple comics before Kaza and Gwenna, but this one has lasted far longer than anything else for me, and I can see myself continuing it for many years to come. The immediate future of the comic is for me to finish up the two current story lines. I'm working towards uniting them, and hopefully the story will become more focused as I move events along. In the long term, I do want to keep Kaza's Mate Gwenna focused on it's roots. The diversion into Earth-N and then Oz has moved me away from what the comic is really about, and I want to try and get back to basics in the future.
Devious Journal EntryYou might have noticed I switched my update day to Saturday. When I did the Wonderella crossover back in March, Justin Pierce the creator of Wonderella made a post on his site drawing attention to my comic. Justin doesn't post regularly, but his diehard fans still check every Saturday for a new comic. Since that post is still visible on the comics main page, I tend to get a traffic bump on Saturdays. So popping new comics up on the weekend makes sense.

Devious Journal EntryI got this as part of the Comic Fury Secret Bunny Exchange. Saeriellyn of The Book of Three did this awesomely retro Kaza and Gwenna versus a giant rabbit.
Getting aheadOne of the real advantages of this guest month has been to give me a breather while I work on more pages for the next chapter of Situation on Earth-N. So far, I have eight pages completed, and I have them queued up to follow right after guest month ends. Chapter Two has shaped up to be relatively short, just fourteen pages. I hope I'll be able to get the rest of the chapter completed this month. I'm not sure if my art process has sped up any, but getting comfortable with doing everything digitally has made some part of this easier and the art a bit cleaner.
I'm still working with jrrRichardson on the script for part three. I've also been taking some time to jot down a few further story ideas. So far, I have at least ten stories I could develop. Some of this is stuff that's been rattling around in my head for a while, or I even have a few pages drawn out.But this is the first time I've really tried to write a bunch of this out into something coherent and usable for m

Stop hating your art and yourselfSo this is something that I've been bottling up for a while and I want to address it. Now, before you harp on me, I am guilty of this from time to time as well. However I want to open up the floor to this conversation.
I try to stay kind and gentle in my conversations with people. However for this, forgive my blunt tone. I am giving people advice based on what worked for me and other professionals I've talked to. This advice is for ANYONE, but mostly visual mediums like drawing, paints, etc. Though if you stretch your mind a bit, it could apply to any medium.
Also I KNOW not everyone wants to be a pro. This is about being a pro. It's about bettering your art. I have people always asking me about getting better and improving, and this is my advice to you all.
A. Your art does NOT suck.
For the love of the planet, PLEASE stop saying this. Your art may not be at the same level as someone else, maybe your family member, your friends, classmates or id
Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
