@maeriyong: 21 was mostly assessing how well Kalo can use his powers. if he won then he'd be useful for her escape plan, but she can see that he's not ready yet~

also she just likes winning :p
rip Aion, you're about to get owned

If you want to know what happens next, the sketch for the next page is ALREADY on my patreon!

MY PATREON IS NOW LIVE! Get HD snapshots of every page in progress, and see finished pages before they're uploaded here on smackjeeves. As time goes on I will be expanding to bonus stuff, world building, and other projects. As of writing this, we're already close to the first goal- help us unlock it and all my patrons get a cool little thank-you gift!

There is now a link to my patreon readily available in the menu bar and on the about page. Thanks to Eve for helping me do that and for cleaning up the site a little bit! And, since I will be posting pages early for patrons, I'm going to start posting the pages here on Thursday evenings rather than mornings.

As for the face-off, it's soooo close to ending. What're they supposed to do now that Kalo popped the dang ball?? Thanks Kal.

things have been chaos, to say the least, so there is no page this week. i'm really bummed because the sportsball arc was supposed to end next week, but we gotta push it back a bit. to make it up to you guys i'm posting a nice close-up of reggie's new promo art.

5 days until the patreon opens up! as a patron you can see high quality scans of recoil pencils, inks, and finished pages before they're posted here on the site. we're starting pretty simple but i have some cool stuff waiting in the wings too. see ya next week~

Friends! For the last several weeks I've been building a bunch of stuff for my own Patreon page. It will go live on OCTOBER 10 and I'm so pumped! And scared. But mostly pumped. You'll be able to pledge for things like high quality scans of pencils and inks of pages in progress, behind the scenes stuff, etc. More details on launch day~

Also here's a reminder that Kalo hasn't been able to see SHIT this whole time. Will he ever get new glasses? Hopefully.

Also x2: Thanks for all your messages last week. I was blown away by all your kind wishes about my poor ol' wrist. This week I experimented with shading the page with my mouse, since that uses my non-dominant hand, and it worked out pretty well. So I might do that for most pages and save the fancier shading for juicier moments. See ya next week~
mfw when the question "what if they try to hurt me?" isn't met with, "they wouldn't do that!" and is instead answered with "well i will beat them up if they do."

lets have a nice, friendly, chat between Lords...!!! please.

no shading this time, being cautious about my wrist as i drew more than normal this week. hopefully should be good for next week.

GOOD NEWS! Next Thursday I'll have an announcement for you, but you can find out what it is a few days ahead of time if you're in the Recoil discord or following my tumblr / twitter. I'm so excited to tell you what's up.

See ya next Thursday~

@Trinox: Actually, I've been sneaking a lot of characters from different webcomics into this scene! And in October I'm opening a chance for any character to appear in my comic, so if you want a cameo, keep a look out for that. c:

@Trinox: hahahaha whether you love her or hate her, i'm glad that 21 is fun to watch.

65 got his scar in a street fight. he was cut by a pocket knife. this is the first time that 65 finally, FINALLY gets to be front-and-center in a panel, so I made the scar more obvious too. Up until this point he's always been turned away from the camera or too far away for the scar to be visible. Still, there are glimpses of it in previous pages. :o

@Trinox: Wow, I just looked up the Kultrun and immediately saw what you were talking about! It's very beautiful.

The symbol I'm using is a type of cymatic pattern that is created by sound. I wonder if there is a connection between the Kultrun's sound and the symbol painted on it! Very cool.

Thank you for reading~

21 is just 1 point away from winning now, yikes!

We have some cameos this week. Remy from #wafflefry, which JUST wrapped up a super cute arc; and Kanay, a character of my good friend Kelsey. She makes a beautiful watercolor comic with the best acronym: cake!

I have some cool news coming down the pipeline, so keep your eyes peeled in the next couple weeks. >8)c

if you're here because of my guest art, thanks for checking out my stuff. you're awesome!
Ira confirmed for emo. kinda glad he's honest though, and not just like "YEAH IM TOTALLY OKAY! Don't worry about it, kid!!!!"
