First off, I'm really grateful to every person who made kind comments on Precious Metal's 4th issue. The story is starting to come together behind the scenes, and I'm really excited for the next issue! However, I have not written it yet, which will slow down production of new pages. OTL
Second of all, I'm moving to Idaho for college which, while very exciting for me, will slow production of issue 5 even further. The end result of all this is that, despite my evil cliffhanger, I will not be able to update Precious Metal for a good while here.
HOWEVER, I have a plan.
Phase one of this plan involves filling in a few gaps--adding a PM cast page, etc. Phase TWO is to work on an entirely different comic.
If any of you were around a year and a half ago, you may remember that my brother and I collaborated to make a pretty cool (if I do say so myself) little comic. Well, now he has written a full-fledged first issue of what we have lovingly titled "Brainstorm." (The prologue-type issue is on sale at the kindle store currently and may show up on gumroad. *corny thumbs up*)
Since that script is done and has been sitting around for months and I already have a few pages finished, I can update that while I adjust. You will still get comics, and by the time Brainstorm issue 1 is finished, PM issue 5 should be rarin' to go. It's a win-win.
So to sum up:
College, Precious Metal=in progress, expect new pages of Brainstorm for now.
Wish me luck!
Here's the deal, guys--new pages will be up and available ONE WEEK (...or so...) sooner here than anywhere else. The new pages will show up around here soon after.posted by mfisherart @ 13 Jun 2013 05:39 pm 0 comments
So, here's the scoop:
1st, page 5 is like ALMOST DONE.
Second, I've been invited to join a comics group online! Check it out--
Okay. I know it has been forever since I updated. I kind of hate when creators flake on me, and I didn't want to do that ever, but I'm inexperienced and underestimated what I was doing. Here's what's going on:
I am working at a much bigger size, which has necessitated some adaptation on my part. I used to have two separate steps: "ruffs" and "pencils." Now those two have combined together, making the pencils more difficult. That's why I underestimated the time it would take to actually make this sonofagun issue.
Also, I'm helping out a lot at home. We've been doing an Eagle Scout project, graduating, teaching a class for our church, ETC. So it's been a little more hectic than I'd anticipated.
HOWEVER, here is the good news:
1) I am now getting the hang of my new process.
2) The pages are looking better than ever.
3) I have penciled up through page 10 (out of approximately 40)
4) This issue is going to be AMAZING.
So wish me luck! And if you have followed this comic this far, thank you for your patience. Thanks again!
I'm officially back to updating Precious Metal. This marks the second page out of 37 in this new issue! It has been way too long since I updated, but I've been hard at work behind the scenes--actually using a script for the first time! etcetera!--and I think it'll be worth it. Stay tuned!
Hi, guys. I have some good news and some--well, good news, I guess.
First is that I'm finally starting to really get better. I was sick over the last weekend with some kind of jerk virus. It was all like "You can't do anything ever HAHAHA", but I have overcome. I have a project I have to work on, but barring that, new pages should fly fast and furious soon!
The other good news has a bad side: as of June, I'll no longer be able to do this. I'm going away for a year and a half, but it's to do something I really want to do: serve an LDS mission. I know it'll be worth it, but I'm sad to leave this comic and anybody who might be reading it. I will miss you!
Thank you to all of you--even if you've just looked at a page, or a single panel. It means a lot.
Wish me luck!
Okay, guys. If any of you are following this, I feel I probably gave you the impression that new pages would be up really soon. I apologize.
BUT, now a page is up! Be ready for more soon! I can't promise how often or how many yet, because color is a whole new dimension for me, but as I get a handle on the work I should be able to be more consistent.
I am also waiting on some very important news from some people which will affect the number of updates. I'll let you know when that happens.
Wish me luck!
Okay, guys. Precious Metal Issue 3 is on the way. I feel I've really challenged myself on this one. There are several new things on this issue that I'd like to keep under my hat for now, but trust me when I say this: Stuff's about to get crazy.
Hope you guys are along for the ride.
What started as a 24-Hour-Comics-Day endeavor was cleaned up, and then the second issue happened and that was cool, too. New installments will follow in this story of precious metals, magic, and secrets.
