Phew, just barely made that one. Okay, I’m writing this just shy of a week before it posts, but the norm for me is a month early, and I just finished the script yesterday.
Every once in a while I decide I’ll put different elements on different layers. And then I regret it because of how much longer it takes.
This is the end of chapter 6. I’m honestly behind on my scripting, but I’ll try to have the next chapter at least ready enough for a cover by next week. I might be writing by the seat of my pants, though. (I usually go through three drafts of the entire chapter before the previous one ends.)
Edit: fixed the speech balloon tails in panel 1. Thanks to CasaDelGato for pointing that out!
My flashbacks have now caught up with the actual comic.
Edit: link now points to where my half of the exchange will be posted later today.
And today, a guest strip by Ross Griswold of The Immortal Staff-Master.
After not being able to think of a good joke last year, this is my first time doing the April Fools’ Switcharoo for Webcomic Underdogs.
I’m never really sure whether to announce it’s a gag in the post or not. Traditionally in the real world you say “April Fools’!” right away, but online people tend not to. On the other hand, that can be annoying when you’re going through archives and not seeing it on April 1st…
I tried upgrading the shading again. I think I’ll have to dial it back a bit: this took quite a bit longer, and looks a little overly dark.
