Welcome to Monsters.
"Monsters" is the story of a too-curious-for-his-own-good high school student, whose world is turned upside down when he learns that not all tall tales are as tall as he once thought, and the myths, rumors, and urban legends that surround him may hold more truth than he bargained for. Not all things that creep and crawl in the night can be sundered by merely a boot, and the flick of a light. Here there be Monsters.
I hate hiatuses.
But blahhh it seems that no artist can escape them. Life hit me pretty hard and sudden when I came back from vacation. I had to find a job, and it turns out job hunting is kind of...a royal pain. But I have one now! I'm easing back into a normal, scheduled life, and I'm planning to update more regularly. Sadly, it will probably just be 1 page a week, at best. I'm doing other stuff as well, namely reviving an old film project that I never finished; I can't stand unfinished projects.
Well I finally got my update done. The one that was due last Wednesday, Christmas. Rawr. Hate being late. But oh weeeell. The Holiday Season is pretty tough on Ye Old Schedule.
...now I have two days to finish the next page if I'm keep to schedule. Not sure if that's gonna work out XD.
But I'll do my best! --*Cheesey Anime Voice*
Welp, I'm actually in Hawaii on vacation right now!
Gonna be here for about another week. I've just finished the page for Sunday's update, but being that most of my hours are going towards enjoying myself away from the computer...it's going pretty slow. I'm hoping I'll still have an update for next Wednesday though, as per schedule. Though that's actually Christmas day.. lolz. I also wanted to do a special Christmas page thingy... But just not sure if I'll have time for both that and the regular update -or even one of them XD.
Time will tell.
Finished a whole Chapter! WOOOO!
I thought I might need a short break to prepare for the next one, buuuut I don't think that'll be necessary. I'll be uploading a Cover on Sunday, and page updates should proceed as they have been!
Apparently I'm updating twice a week still, but on Wednesdays and Sundays instead of Tuesdays and Saturdays..
Roflz. Dunno how that happened, but it looks like ya'll can kind of mostly count on this pattern continuing for the time being XD.
So I received a message from a Fan (*joy*), who was disheartened at the seeming disappearance of this comic! Then I realized.. I changed the site link, didn't I XD.
See, originally I intended to just use the domain "monsters.smackjeeves.com", cause it was more concise and cool and uber-pro and stuff. Buuut that domain was taken...by a dead comic. I appealed to have the domain freed up for me, but the admins weren't replying in a timely manner, so I settled for "monsterscomic.smackjeeves.com". Suddenly, 2 months later, the admins freed up the domain for me! So I happily swapped the link, not realizing that now "monsterscomic.smackjeeves.com" is non existent! And any fans I may have will suddenly not be able to find the comic.. XD
So! If you're reading this that means you probably found the comic anyways, so this is all kind of redundant isn't it...
The site is now "monsters.smackjeeves.com"! Tell your friends.
There isn't one.
As I said before, I'm out of town, and can't keep up any kind of regular update schedule until I'm back, in December. So basically I'll just be updating as soon as I finish the page. I'm hoping there will at least be one a week -maybe even two sometimes! Or maybe none sometimes. Who knows.
I was late! About 6 hours past Tuesday. I was really hoping to keep things per schedule, with no hiccups. So forgive the lateness! All..four of you. You awesome fans, you.
In my defense, it was a pretty difficult page to do.. My first shot at a comic-book style action sequence using 3D renders.. All I can say is MOTION BLUR. Solves all problems. I really like how it turned out. Hope you guys dig it. We're finally getting to the interesting part!
Annnd naturally now's the part where my updating may start to slow down.. On October 12th, I'm headed to a camp of sorts for 2 months, until December 16th. I am going to be kept veeeery busy, and I have no idea how much time I'll have to work on pages. *Sob*. I may slow down to one update a week, or possibly even less. There's a slight chance that it may even turn into a 2 month hiatus, but I REALLY don't want that to happen.
I can promise that I'll be looking for every opportunity in what free time I can find to work on pages. I'm enjoying this project a lot, and I hope you are too!
