Chapter 11: Of something beautiful, but annihilating
Posted August 25, 2020 at 12:49 pm

Vote over at TWC! I don't have an incentive today either, sorry!

I really like what I've come up with for Chapter 11 so far, so I'm looking forward to jumping into making pages! We'll be back on regular schedule next week! I spent way too much time on the cover for this chapter, but I like how it turned out. Sometimes, you have to just keep adding layers and layers and layers and adjusting things before you come up with what you really want. I generally don't recommend it, but it was worth it in the end. 

This chapter title is from a poem by Sylvia Plath titled The Rival. I don't think the poem really applies to the context of the chapter, but that particular line really worked for what I wanted to convey :)

I think there's enough interest in a contest! I'm not sure if I'll end up having time for another fashion contest at the moment, but I might do a social media giveaway for Twitter/Instagram for now and aim for the fashion contest in a bit. I want to make a template for you guys to use to make it easier for people to participate if they aren't as confident drawing the characters :). And I need another height chart anyway. I've had good progress getting things done for my Kickstarter for the first volume of HTBAW, so hopefully when the world is less on fire, Hiveworks and I will be ready for that to launch finally. With coronavirus and the post office being a mess and everything else, it's a hard time to run a crowdfunding campaign ;_;.


I made a TikTok? 

I made a Fandom Wiki for HTBAW. I did very little to it, because I don't know what I'm doing and I'm too tired/busy to learn, but if you'd like to help edit it and add things, please feel free. Thank you to everyone who's contributed so far! It's coming along great! (I've also not had time to check into this, but I'm going to assume anyone who cares to update it probably has a thing for accuracy, so I'll periodically check to add things when I can. If you're working on it, please feel free to add any artwork from the comic or my Twitter that you'd like to the wiki, no need to ask. Artwork away.)

Feel free to check out my goofy Amazon store if you're so inclined, or I have some merch up on Society6 if you're looking for my old store link! Thanks to everyone who's come out to support me through Ko-fi and Patreon (links below, I'm too tired to link more things), you're really keeping me sane when the world is on fire :).
