We made it past the election, I've gotten most of my leaves raked in my yard, it's inexplicably 70 degrees outside (but I'm still wearing a sweater, because I refuse to acknowledge that my neighbor had the air conditioning on yesterday), and we're back to updating! Hooray!
One frustrating aspect of making a webcomic is I usually just have to plow ahead with whatever state a page is in, regardless if I think that I've made the best choices. I deliberated a lot more in early pages, and I think that's paid off over time, and I probably need to hunker down and be more critical of my layouts in the future. I struggled making that last panel work, and I think it ultimately does, but if I did it again, I'd possibly go for a more dynamic angle or something. Elias flying into the "camera" would have worked well, though this flatter composition is more clear what's happening, so who knows. It's a one off gag, not an entire werewolf battle, so clarity over style is maybe better in this instance. I really want that fun, dynamic anime comic energy, but wouldn't ya know, it's just not something I've ever quite figured out lol. I always default to things that are readable and clear over the frenetic energy you see in a lot of shonen manga, for example.
Anyway, I'm off to...do something. My county is kind of exploding for cases lately, so I guess it'll be a low key day taking walks or something.
I haven't forgotten about my idea for a contest yet! It got a bit waylaid because my life is chaos and I'm trying to get a million things done this month it seems, but we'll come back to it one day! In the meantime, there's new merch up at the Hivemill store. I added some new prints and tshirts finally, so if you like my comic and would like to support me, please go see if there's something you like! The shirts are American Apparel, so size up if you're not sure what size to get.
I made a TikTok? I haven't been using it really, but China already knows my whole life at this point anyway.
HTBAW Fandom Wiki is up and running! Thanks to Myk Streja for tons of help with moderation efforts and everyone else who's done a ton of work on adding information and filling out the Wiki. I know nothing about how this stuff works and I'm too old to learn :D.
Feel free to check out my goofy Amazon store if you're so inclined (this is an ad, as I get a tiny commission if you do buy something), 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!
