Oof, I am not awake today. I had a short political event this morning at 7am, which is very early for me, but I was awake all night with a horrible sinus headache from the thunderstorm that rolled in. I decided to go back to bed for a bit and now I'm super groggy! This is why I don't take naps! I needed the sleep, but it's almost noon and I still haven't gotten more awake. Time to bring caffeine into the picture!
I haven't normally drawn trails behind these flying dudes before, but I felt like there needed to be a better visual representation of them moving through the air, and I generally like the vibe! Manga artists are always so good at the action scenes and everything seems so intense, so I try to study whatever they're doing. I haven't had enough action scenes to draw in awhile, so it's hard to reproduce it without more practice lol. They also tend to use a whole page or two for big, dynamic action, and I prefer to not doing that since this comic is two pages per week. I could! But it doesn't work with the pacing I see in my head.
Anyway, Alphonsus has briefly flown off because I forgot to draw him, but he'll be back on the next pages!
May merch drop! New tote bags and hoodies are being added to the Hivemill store! (I may be the webcomic on Hiveworks who utilizes the merchandise the most, from what I've seen...hm.) The hoodies are unisex sizing, but the tshirts run rather fitted, so I recommend sizing up! (Two of the moons are flipped on the product images, but the files the shirts are printed from are corrected, so you should have moons in the correct order. My bad!)
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. Thank you everyone for contributing and it's an amazing and super detailed resource!
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!
