POWER HIII FIIIVE.
So I’m kind of trying to find ways to streamline the way I color without having it actually detract from the way that the strip looks, so expect some minor experimentation here and there. The pages have been easier due to how I’ve been coloring which has allowed me to go back to a much more regular updating schedule (although every day is probably not going to last forever hahaha).
Towards the end of Ch2 I was going nuts with the coloring and like, putting in details in places it /didn’t matter/ and you really couldn’t see, thus slowing the strip down and also making me feel tired and like I didn’t want to color another page for a million years.
I still think the strip NEEDS to be in color, so that’s never going to go away, but I think there are more monotone/stylistic coloring styles I could probably use to help make each page a tiny bit easier! Hopefully it won’t be a let down!
Also trying a different style for backgrounds, a kind of more solid, clunkier style and we’ll see where that takes me!
In other news, hey look it’s the new guy (TM)! Now be nice and don’t push him around the playground guys, unless that’s how you show your affection, then by all means — skin his knee!!
Love you! Tessout.

I am the worst at my own deadlines I’m so sorry. If I don’t get April done quicker than this I’ll beat myself up Edward Norton style, I swear.
On that note, I’ve ONCE AGAIN EXTENDED THE DONATION PERIOD FOR MARCH until APRIL 12th, 2010, but we’re changing the directions a little bit this time to streamline it a little better.
IF YOU DO NOT WANT MARCH AND ARE JUST DONATING FOR APRIL SPECIFY ‘APRIL’. If you do not specify I’m ASSUMING you want March.
I am so sorry this is a sloppy system, guys. I am aware, and I’M SO SORRY. It worked while things were smaller but you guys are SO FREAKING AWESOME that it’s grown bigger than the system I made for it but I’m working to find a better streamlined way where I miss people less and it’s a lot less work on your guys part. That said I still REALLY appreciate how many of you still donate, the kind words and your general tolerance with my SLOW ASS.
Thank you. I love you so much it should be illegal.
If you have any questions or need help or got missed for your donation please e-mail me at:
I will try to check it once a day at least, so I will do my best to respond quickly and get to you. If you send it to firstname.lastname@example.org it will probably get drowned out so fast. I have to use keywords to find my conversations in that e-mail, since it's where I send all my alerts (paypal, etsy, wordpress, etc).
Love you, Tessout!!!
