Senior Project is underway, and it's all Devil's Cake!
That's right, it will be all Devil's Cake all the time this semester (mostly).
The project is the re-launch of Devil's Cake as a regularly updating webcomic.
During April 2016, 1 page updates will begin on Mondays, once again.
The plan involves laying the proper foundations for a successful webcomic: Good story, Clear storytelling.
Among other things is the space for growth and longevity. This involves finally setting up, launching, and maintaining a Patreon for Devil's Cake and my future webcomics.
There will still be free, weekly page updates, but Patreon subscribers will get extra goodies (and satisfaction from supporting creators and enabling them to create their work.)
So, Between now and March, I need suggestions from you, the very patient and loyal patrons of this site, for what type of subscriber bonuses you might like from me.
I hope to begin with manageable things like monthly wallpapers. But aside from that, I wonder if things like a weekly live broadcast/ g+ hangout with Q&A may be good. Or even Art/Comic Tutoring sessions for higher subscribers? Just a few suggetsions.
Of course, subscribers would be privy to bonus goodies when books release and such.
I have not delved into the specifics of the Patreon workings yet, but please post here any treats from me you'd see worth subscribing for.
ANOTHER Pause in the story
I was afraid something like this might happen, and so it has:
Devil’s Cake updates won’t be able to happen again until November-December due to the sudden urgent need for a new abode, the impending move, and school all the while.
(Translation: I suddenly have to find an apartment and move by halloween @_@;)
Very sorry for the break in story, and thank you sincerely for your patience.
“If you enjoy this comic, please consider making a Donation. Thank for your Support!”
Donations box is back up!
It is supported by CASH, Cash is apart of Square, inc. What is Square, inc.? Well, you know the little card readers artists have you pay with at conventions? and the Tablet register the Boba Tea shop uses for customers to pay? THOSE are Square<3 They are amazing! They only take 1.5% from business transactions and CASH transfers between friends are always free! Can you dig it?
And they are MORE secure than PayPal (in my opinion)
Trying to get away from Paypal’s convoluted practices X(.
Why don’t I have a Patreon yet, you ask? I will, I plan to try and set it up the Spring/Summer of 2016, after I complete my crazy school schedule. I want to be able to make regular updates, and maybe… thinking… Monthly Wallpaper Art for subscribers? G+ Hangouts, too? You let me know. We have months to decide what kind of Subscriber bonuses/exclusives would be manageable for me, and worth the investment to you<3
SO! If you enjoy Devil’s Cake, please consider making a donation, every little bit helps. Just affording the art supplies for the comic to balance my budget is stuper helpful (stupid+super= Stuper), and that’s like…. $5 cumulative a month at the pace of Devil’s Cake’s supply consumption! An Easy Goal!
Thank you for your support! Nothing better than to have your work acknowledged by such amazing and intelligent fellow creators and readers<3 Love you guys!!!!
Firstly, there was a question in the comments about alternative places and forms to find the Devil's Cake books:
And now on to STATUS UPDATE:
I have completed the thumbnails for the rest of chapter 20 and all of 21. They took a while because they had to double as homework and needed an extra step of polishing at the end. (And I have been super careful and attentive to developing the story and flow of this chapter, utilizing all my new skills!) But they are ready for pencils!
Further delay due to:
-I START A JOB THIS WEEK! YAAAY! So, I will be getting used to that this week.
-Devil's Cake is still being double checked by a lovely careful beautiful editor of mine.
-I tweaked my drawing arm while doing the yoga, but it's 75% back to normal, and will be good to go for comic work soon!
The plan is still to post in bundled updates. Their average page count will be 3-4 pages per update. As to nailing down update times... may prove to be difficult. The plan, as of now, is to recommend you keep an eye on the @DevilsCakeComic on twitter account Laengine.tumblr for notification. Updates are theoretically planned to happen every week to week and a half. (BUT I HAVE TO SEE HOW WORK GOES @_@).
But the good new is that since the thumbnails are so polished, the art part should just be making everything pretty, and pretty fast. I remain optimistic about getting this chapter out before September.
As always, Thank you for you patience and support,
And I should see you in a bit!!
