Yep, I recieved some startling bills today, to add to some light art block.
So unfortunately I have no choice but to open up commissions and take a break on the comic, I would seriously appreciate any help anyone can give, signal boosting would be a great help!
I have less than a week to work up some funds!
Thanks for patience and understanding and especially help!
It’s been a while since I’ve come to touch Hawkheir again, and in that time a lot of things have happened and a lot of things have not happened, but in the end I’ve had to make new plans for the future of the series!
The first important thing is that starting next week, there will be 3 new pages every week again! Yes you read that right but feel free to go over it once more, in fact I have 48 additional story pages to add to Hawkheir, which will bring the chapter count to 6 and page count to 144! Now that sounds pretty okay eh?
These two new chapters are to be called Chapter 0.5(1): The Revenants and Chapter 2.5(4): Misty Souls and Shrouded Faces (may change in future). Both chapters will focus heavily on Evaliline and specifically her backstory, and will drop hints and links to future expansions of the Trilogy.
Both chapters have been scripted and The Revenants is in the process of being drawn, once again pages start going online next week at the old schedule of Tuesday – Thursday – Saturday.
The second big thing is that whilst I’m doing this and most likely long after I’ve finished these additional pages I’ll also be going through the old pages and editing them to reflect the changes to the character designs as well as improving some inconsistencies in the first chapter and perhaps second chapter. I will not be touching any of the story however, my edits will exclusively affect the art, at most I may edit some dialogue but this isn’t very likely at all.
Due to how much time making new pages will take I expect 90% of these edits will take place after I’ve completed the two extra chapters, but keep your eyes peeled to try and spot them!
I’ll also go ahead and try and upload character design sheets similar to the Evaliline one I uploaded earlier. Once again these design sheets are final and not subject to change unless I make some gross error in something vital, such as anatomy.
Now for something a little more serious that some people may get knotted panties over!!!
In the past few months I’ve come to really realize for myself what Hawkheir means to me, and it is something that many people will look on negatively especially if they are not creators themselves. But Hawkheir is, to me, my baby, it’s my precious child. I started Hawkheir because I had a vision, a story to tell and somewhere along the initial version I forgot that… that first attempt at Hawkheir was a mess and complete disaster in my eyes, because I tried to turn it into something people would enjoy as opposed to something I enjoy.
But for this Hawkheir, the true version, this is my own selfish project, I make it for myself and have no interest in it’s popularity or success. If it should one day become successful I’ll be unimaginably proud, but I won’t go out of my way to make this something that everyone can enjoy. The only real way for me to explain my view on it is that, this is my vision, and in my mind the vision is a factual account of events, it can’t just change on a whim.
That’s exceptionally selfish of me and that’s okay in my opinion, I won’t be catering to any fans because none of them are as big a fan as I am.
Well I hope all of that didn’t sound too aggressive or, dare I say, oppressive!! What a tyrannical author I am hahahah! But sometimes a man has to put his ideals down for all to understand what he’s doing, and that’s the kind of person I am unfortunately, a little too honest and open! I’ll never be any good at poker this way!!
Anyway I hope everyone can continue to enjoy Hawkheir and it’s eventual sibling stories!
Thank you all for waiting,
