Secrets Revealed


Oh god he's going to start monologuing isn't he? Friggin' villains man, always with this shit. It's like, BRUH, we get it, just kill me so I don't have to listen to this shit.

But hey when your protagonist doesn't speak it's kind of like you're just asking to get monologued at, so what're ya gonna do?

We're finally getting into the meat and potatoes of the Space Cat plot, I won't say too much as to not spoil anything, but soon the stakes will be revealed.

Anyway, that's about it on my end, I'm busy trucking through the next Hard-Mode episode (I'd say it's maybe 25% finished, MAYBE) so it's coming, just not right away. I'll probably continue to post tidbits and previews on twitter.

So without further ado, here's Tate:

Hey folks! things are going well on my end. I really experimented with this strip and the following handful. I think it was due to the THICKENING PLOT and all that stuff, it really made me want to get some dark shadows in there. It doesn't last forever, but it was a fun to play around with. 

As for my personal life, the design business is getting some traction, both from the retained old clients (like our pal Nuzlocke) and from new prospects (some local comedians who need posters done). Friendly reminder to tell your friends all about Distracting By Design! I've set up a Twitter account you may enjoy, if you like artsy junk- @DistByDes

Leave any comments if you liked the heavy shading that went on in this strip, if people like it I can bring it back for future pages of Space Cat.

I hope you all enjoy your week!




FIRRRRSTTTTHHHH probably apocalypse will kill us before Nuz reaches this pages, but who knows... after all the year after this one is still 2013
YEAAAAAAAS Love these updates!!!! Thank you!!
Feedback? Well, not personally a fan of the heavier shading.
Space Cat has been looking a little evil/sinister in the last two updates.
Space Cat is about to make something awesome any second... Any second!
Meat... and potatoes...

brb, making corned beef hash.

I like the shading.
Hi Tate,

I'm great Spacecat is back! I really liked this comic.

The heavy shading feels like a complete different style, and I don't like it too well. This is ofcourse totally personnal and I don't like this kind of colouring in general. Because of the contrasts, it feels kinda harsh (not sure if this is the correct word) and I prefer softer colours. I might just have to get used to it though.
And like you said, it creates an extra dark, exciting feeling, which fits the last few pages. And there's nothing wrong with experimenting.
I noticed the difference in the first page after the "break" and was pleased to see that your style 'evolved' in the past year. That you haven't stood still in this time.

Keep on the great work!
