First order of business: a pile of fanart acquired over the past week or so! 😀

But not one of them is a contest entry! I’ve even extended the deadline by one full week, so if you’ve been thinking about entering now’s your chance! There are not many entries, so you still stand an awesome chance at winning one of the prizes!
There’s also a brand-new vote incentive this week, drawn by the one and only Chu of Slightly Damned! Be careful, though, you might just die of the cuteness!
Since some of my friends’ comics and Messenger share some audience members, I thought it would be a nifty idea to slap each of our TopWebComics voting links on one convenient page. Now, you can bookmark one single page and get all your votes in together, as well as automatically pass it on to your friends through Twitter, Facebook, and basically everything under the sun! Check it out! Go hive go!
Last, but not least, it’s time for the next round of Webcomic Book Club courtesy of the members of Palace in the Sky! Our “assignment” this week was to check out Cy-Boar, an action/superhero comic by Lou Graziani. It’s a fun story with interesting art, especially if you grew up being into things like the Ninja Turtles as a kid. You can check out our reviews and add your own commentary on the Palace in the Sky Blog! Next up is actually Messenger, which makes me both excited and nervous!
Okay, so technically not an entry since Chu has decided not to officially enter the contest, but she still drew this awesome picture to go along with the theme! There are still nine days left before the contest deadline, and not a lot of entries, so go read up on the rules and get your entry in today!

Hey comic readers! This is not my favorite page ever, but it’s a necessary in-between. Next week’s is better! Speaking of which, there are only three pages left in Chapter Seven! I feel like I just started drawing it. Time flies!
A few other new things this week:
New fanart from Chu of Slightly Damned!

I helped her put together a few things for her comic’s new website-in-the-works, so she drew me some art. It’s double awesome because no one ever draws my human characters, so Luke is finally getting some love. Thanks, Chu! 😀
I’ve cleaned up my Links page because the disorganization finally got to me. This includes a couple of new link exchanges, some new Messenger banners for linking out, and general cleanup.
There’s also a new vote incentive minicomic that’s going to run for the next six weeks! I had some things I wanted to experiment with and decided to do a short comic based on a “deleted scene” from Chapter One. It’s short and uncomplicated, and I wanted to get back into the swing of drawing Aki and some others to mentally prepare for Chapter Eight. Voting will take you to the page, and all the archive pages will be posted for registered members on the forum the following week.
Other than that, I finally got in a handful of new supplies I ordered for general comic work and work on the new Chapter Two pages for Book 2! Exciting. Especially considering the brief moment of panic I had when I couldn’t remember which address I used for shipping. Whoops. At any rate, I’m glad to be coloring Eldora without feeling like I’m grinding my markers to dust, again, so hooray! Stuff like this is where reader donations go! Even a little bit helps me keep my supplies stocked, since the entire comic is drawn using real media – and when you donate, you get an exclusive wallpaper! Also, every time $25 is collected in donations or shop purchases, a new regular comic page is posted! Everyone wins!
That’s pretty much all I’ve got for this update. Thanks for reading! See you next Monday!
