It's been a long time… Scratch that, it’s been a ridiculously long time, but I don’t really want to waffle about the details. Instead, I’d rather just get back to posting comic updates for Apothecary Supreme on a semi-regular basis.

In summary, I’ve been going through a professional transition which recently cumulated in me changing jobs from a fairly rote 9-to-5 over to a more flexible arrangement. The main positive of this is that I should have substantially more time to finish comic stuff and get more serious about this.

Fortunately, I do have a few pages ready which I worked on – slowly – and have held back until I could properly commit again. So here goes.

I’ve also transitioned to digital as my Wacom has quickly become a major part of my working life.

After much indecision I realised that using the tools at my disposal fully was the best way to speed things along without compromising results. More on this when I upload the transition page in question, hopefully it won’t be too jarring!

More next Sunday anyhow :)

May thanks chris-tar, I feel like 'great' is something I aspire to but remains a distant goal. I at least feel like I'm improving though! ;)

uuugh that kind of childhood... D:

great to see this back again :D
and now I'm curious about the new style. Yes, speed is so important, and when it can be increased considerably without much loss of quality, or change of style, then it's definitely the right thing to do.

I realise I've built Burkhard up to be a bit of an A-hole so far, but I wanted to start showing where his particular brand of haughty prejudice flows from...

Happy to be back anyhow! Regarding the digital change; hopefully the style won't really shift much.

Part of the reason I switched over was because I felt reasonably sure that the look wouldn't change and break continuity. Honestly, I've had an easier time keeping characters on model this way, so if anything I'm hoping visuals will be a bit more consistent!

You can all be the judge on this one though when page 14 goes live in just over a week ;)

In works I've seen from you, I think you've always managed to keep a consistent style whether the different steps of creation were made digitally or traditionally. I think it's a good idea to go which ever seems to work best at any given time
