Astra is an independent Artistic Factotum - that is a sort of Jack-of-All-Trades. Some of those trades include: published fantasy author, freelance illustrator, cosplayer, clothing designer, crafter and games designer. She builds worlds instead of sleeping, and has no idea what the elusive creature 'free time' is. She hopes someday to do well enough at her many artistic pursuits that she might find out.

Hello friends! It's been a crazy few weeks, but I'm hoping to have lots of good news to report come the new year. In the meantime, I have been working hard on a few projects that have been soaking up all my time.
I hope you have fun plans for the end of year celebrations, and that you all get some time off to relax and gear up for 2019.

Thank you for reading!

In case you don't remember or in case you haven't read the bonus material from chapter 1, Gun is rather skilled in the mystic arts. If he has a bad feeling, it's best to take heed! Bullet is also highly tuned to magic, and as Gun's familiar, they can amplify each other's senses.

NaNo is now complete! My final tally: 101,180 words (my all-time highest output in a month). More importantly, I finished my first draft of Briar & Thorn, my queer romance fantasy novel. I'm about half-way through my read-through now, after which I'll be sending it off to Beta Readers. If you're interested in Beta Reading for me, please let me know!

I've missed drawing/colouring Blade. He's so ridiculous(ly pretty)!

In an update on my NaNoWriMo: I've written 98,000 words this month so far, and I have only 5 days left to finish off the last two chapters. I don't want to jinx things, but I'm pretty sure I'll be able to completely finish the manuscript this month! This has already been my best ever NaNo attempt, so whatever happens it's a win for me. Next up, I'll be giving it a quick clean-up and then sending it off to my Beta Readers for feedback.

@Captain Apricot: Thanks so much!! I had a blast, and it turned out I was the "Mysterious Host" which was hilarious.
@Ronan: ....Both. Definitely both! It doesn't help that what's he's smoking is like a cross between hashish and opium, so...he's also a bit high.
@Ronan: I'd hate to see Canon's budget for feeding them all that glorious gourmet food!
@Ronan: These are fantastic tips, thanks! I'll definitely look into those comics and see if they'd be interested in trading arts.
@Ronan: Hello! Thanks for this advice. I'll see if I can get my partner to poke at it, because my purchased copy of Adobe Acrobat Pro also stopped working, and I need that to compile the print copy files...
Oooo, Gun is jealous and Blade seems to like it. What do you think? Will Gun and Blade have a proper shag this chapter? Bullet is intuitive and worried about his master. Gun's mood is definitely off today!

The delightful YersiniaP noted that I made a terrible continuity error with taking off Gun's coat (and then having it be right back on again). In truth, I just wanted to draw his fine arms, but he needs to have it on for the next scene, so I'll have to go back and fix the undressed version before this goes to print.

In my NaNo update, I'm sitting at 61k, and passed the halfway point in the novel, so still on-trend to finish the manuscript by the end of the month.

Gun's certainly got a bee in his bonnet! But Bullet seems worried about him!

I've been watching a lot of RuPaul to decompress after writing a whole heck-of-a-lot for NaNo (I hit 40k today!).
I hope you're all doing well, too!

Still getting used to the new tablet. Just started the new Sabrina, and finally got on the Voltron train.

In other news, my NaNo project is off the ground, and I'm now approximately 18k words into my queer romance fantasy novel. If you like a Jane Austen meets Stardust meets Three Musketeers tale of love, loss, and transformation, I do hope you'll follow my project! I keep a Twitter account just for my novel writing endeavours (@ulzaorith) if you want to keep up with my writing shenanigans.

Happy writing!

Sorry for the delay! Windows latest updates pooched my (previous) new tablet, and it ceased working.

Well, I have a new tablet (again!)...and it's taking a bit of getting used to. But, here we are, back in the world of colour!
I'll be starting NaNoWriMo on November 1st for my new novel, Briar & Thorn. Anyone else tackling it this year? You should totally Buddy with me! I'm on the NaNo site as AstraCrompton.
Happy writing!

Chapter 7 Cover
Hello!

Today is my birthday, and I'll be running a Victorian Gothic Murder Mystery costume party tonight to celebrate (that I wrote, of course!). I'm still writing the script for Chapter 7, so I won't have an update next week. But! I do have a Twitch channel for streaming the colours, so if you're interested in watching me colour the pages, I generally colour them around noon PST here www.twitch.tv/cerltemius

Since we're coming back to colour pages, I'll be posting the b&w white version on the Patreon channel first, and then a week later, I'll release the colour versions for everyone.

As a reminder, Gun won the vote, so this next chapter will be from his POV.

I've just come back from Vacation to DisneyWorld! That means I wasn't able to work on comic while I was away...and this is the last page of the backstory! I'll be Streaming the illustration of the chapter cover for Chapter 7: Weigh Anchor here: (today and next Sunday) here: https://www.twitch.tv/cerltemius

Once the cover is finished, Chapter 7 will start with Gun's POV.

@aweebishbookblogger: No worries! I still find it fascinating what choice new readers would have picked!
I'm getting ready to head to DisneyWorld (today!) so, I'm trying to get prepped for going by posting this page early. There is only 1 page left in this bonus chapter, so I need to start working on the cover for Chapter 7 again. I might do a Livestream for it, if anyone is interested?

Please note that next page might be a little late, as I return late Sunday next week.
