He's all epic like:
"Oh, da**, I almost fell coming down the stairs so quick."
Bribed!
He's like:
"Oh God, this is going to hurt."
I see why a punch wouldn't work...

Just a few tweaks on Gareth's design. Mostly pining down the columns and rows on his quilted jerkin. Gotta watch the head size too, it skews the proportions!

I worked on comic stuff (mostly character sheets) over Thanksgiving, and then spent last week catching up on all the homework I ignored. I got everything figured out for my switch to an art major too. I'm excited to start next semester :)

I've been trying to write the script and having a hard time of it, so I think I need to get a good outline together, write dialogue ideas down, and then just move to thumbnails.

Here it is then :)

Rae again. I think this outfit is really cute. Just need to work out the exact details of the shawl.

Found a HUGE plothole in the second half of the story, still thinking about how to fix it. I'm going to get the first chapter rewritten and maybe some of the thumbnails done this weekend.
Here would be better. You can keep interest for this comic up, instead of losing most of your fanbase and having to regain them after the relaunch. Her shoes look awesome, BTW.
Holy cow, I can't believe it's only been a week. It felt like a month.

I don't really have a blog or anyplace to post on the revamp's status, so I thought I could post a sketch or something here each week and let you know how things are going? That or I can make a guild on GaiaOnline. I check Gaia at least twice a day...

So here is Rae, I think the outfit is good but I'm going to change the headscarf into a shawl.
The whole story is outlined now, I've got 2 big plot holes patched up, and a handful of characters are ready to have turnarounds drawn.

Relaunch should be Summer 2010, but I don't know if that will be early summer or late summer yet. I want to have a nice big buffer of pages done. So far I am on track to start sketching pages in January.


So! Continue status updates here, or on Gaia, or somewhere else? Comment and let me know.

Welp. I had several exams this past week, and I didn't do very well on any of them. I need to focus more on school and bring my grades up.
Pilgrim will have go on hiatus until at least the end of this semester. I'm currently set to take even more challenging classes next semester, so the hiatus may very well be longer :(

I've also been thinking about restarting from the beginning. I thought I could continue forward and play catch-up with the redrawn version. But after doing some rewriting, I noticed I had left some characters out completely. Instead of trying to shove them back in, I outlined the rest of the first few chapters without them, and the story was much stronger.
I've been thinking about it for a while, and I think I can do this story much better if I start over. The characters are more fleshed out in my head now, and I'm doing more research on the era and regions I'm using as a base for the setting.
Basically, I think I had a very long false start. I leaped into drawing this without putting much thought into designing anything, and it's really come back to bite me in the ass.

Let that be a lesson to anyone attempting a long term comic! Do your research and planning beforehand!


tl,dr;
Pilgrim is not dead. But if it's going to be on hiatus, until possibly next summer, I'd rather go ahead and restart it from the beginning!

P.S. If you have any questions or anything feel free to send me a pm or email to darklawstudios [at] hotmail [dot] com
Moving right along. :)
It is really good! (points at tree in the left pannel) That one made my eyes bug! It was that awesome! XD Great page dude!
Actually, I think I'll just post them when I get them done. So weekends, usually Sunday afternoon / evening.

I am VERY happy with this page. IMO this is the best one I've drawn so far. :D
Aaah, gotcha! And I like your forrest scene in this one too! All those trees! *w* Terrific job!
Early update! Next page won't go up until the 20th though.

@ Hikaru
The trouble with pasting in photos is that it's usually really obvious and looks lazy. I just need more practice.

Anyway! I'm much happier with how the forest in this page came out. :)
Oh yeah, and I changed the last page a bit too.
If you really wanted to, you could just copy paste your same backgrounds in. Not that they're not lovely or anything! They actually awesome! But it could make your job a little easier for you!
Lovely page, as always!
Easy page with no backgrounds :B

The trouble I'm having with the trees, is to me they look like they cut off too soon. It's supposed to be miles and miles of forest. I'm getting hung up on drawing individual trees, instead of thinking about it as groups or layers of trees.
For the next page I'll spend more time studying my reference pictures and do a better job of it!
