Just a couple of action panels to segway us into Sunday's update.
I would have posted this on Thursday, but Space Cat is going to be a little late this week (big surprise: my fault!) and I figured since there's not too much going on in this one it would be better to have this and Sunday's close together (I almost just said 'screw it' and combined it with Sunday's.)
Anyway, not much else to say....hope everyone's having a good....May?
BLECH.....just pulled an all nighter to get this done. Somehow I doubt I'll be getting up early for community service tomorrow--or I guess technically today. 1 hour from now.
Then again I am still pretty wired on caffeine.
Kind of my own fault though, drawing this one didn't take TOO long, but I couldn't figure out how I wanted to do it and kept replanning and redrawing until I was happy with it. In the end I'm actually pretty satisfied with it artwise; I want to keep trying new action shots until I get good at them.
In other news, I've just recently become aware that people on the semester system are graduated or graduting college right about now. Kind of tripping me out that so many of my friends are moving on to the next stage of their lives......of course I'm on the quarter system and one quarter behind, so I'm still in the system until like August, but whatever.
Anyway I'm going to try to get to sleep, got a midterm paper to finish tomorrow that I'm not even close to prepared for, hope you guys enjoy the update!
...totally forgot to upload this earlier. Goddamn midterms.
So yeah, midterms week, fun stuff. This, work and community service have kind of made the week hectic--honestly I feel so scatterbrained it feels like weeks since I've looked at the site (though I'm pretty sure I updated last Sunday?)
I did take one small break this week to see Ironman 3 last night though, and had an amazing time. Definitely my favorite of the Ironman flicks. Highly recommended.
Anyway, beautiful strip by Tate this week, check it out.
See you guys Sunday with the next Hard-Mode update (could be a bit late due to community service...)
...Okay, so I should probably explain a few things.
If you came to the site last week (and don't check my twitter) you might wonder why there were no updates.
Well last weekend I spilled water all over my laptop, and as it turns out, water is very bad for laptops. Very bad.
...Anyway I had to send it into a shop for the week, and I only just got it back today, meaning I had no means to draw a Hard-Mode update or get Tate a storyboard. On top of this it really hammered in how I pretty much use my computer for everything, and my whole life became a little hectic as a result.
I feel bad about this because it came so quickly after the Speedrun cancelation, and I know a lot of people were already a bit upset over that, and not getting any Hard-Mode or Space Cat updates probably didn't help. Hell, I glanced at the comments in the last two blog posts from my phone, and people were going rabid. I don't know what started that but it sucked to be so helpless to do anything about it or explain myself.
Some of you guys need to relax, but I guess I can't blame you, I don't relax nearly as much as I should.
Anyway, I'm WAY behind schedule in all my shit due to my computer-less week, and I really need to crash. Hopefully things should continue as scheduled from now on. (Don't jinx it...)
First of all, let me say I've been blown away by all the comments I've gotten on my announcement that Speedrun is cancelled. I had no idea so many people were enjoying it so much, it really makes the decision that much harder to make....but ultimately I have to stick with my decision, or I'd just continue to be unhappy with it. But still, it means a lot that for a lot of you it was your favorite comic on the site, and motivates me that much more to try and get it up and running again in an improved form.
...which I'm happy to mention could be sooner than you think. I'm not in the process of relaunching Speedrun currently, but I AM in the process of creating a short 7-10 page Speedrun standalone comic that I'll probably submit to Premiere Pulp!
Hopefully that'll help soften the blow, and tide you guys over until I'm really ready to get things started again.
Anyway, back to Space Cat. Our adventure in the jungle continues, as things begin to get more....Sirius.
...Okay, I really need to stop with the shitty Sirius puns. I'm ending this post right now out of shame.
Forgive me my friends,
