Added 1 new A* page:I will do a custom sketch of Selenis for you that you can hold in your hand and keep for your very own! Yes, these Sketches are a new thing in the A* store (always available from the menu at the top of the page) where I will draw you an actual original piece of A* art starring our cloned galactic assassin in dark black ink on some very nice paper for a cool 30 beans (aka US dollars) and ship it to wherever you're at. I whipped up a couple examples of what these could look like:|
But each one will be different, and you won't know just what your Selenis has come out looking like until she arrives at your doorstep. Exciting, eh? And it will be your very own unique A* artwork--nobody else will have one like yours!--that you can keep forever and ever. So if that sounds nifty, maybe think about ordering one from me. :) More details and the very easy ordering form can be found on, yes, that new Sketches page!
A*'s been nominated for this webcomic tournament on comicmix.com where, uh...well I have no idea what happens. Apparently it involves voting or something, and it seems to be quite popular, so I guess it's nice to have been included. :D Thanks to whoever nominated me!
I came up with another method for making particularly neat rounded stars. Basically I stick the wrong end of my paintbrush into the white ink, and then stamp that onto the page. Maybe they're a little too round, I dunno, but it's kind of fun to be painting backwards. :D Also it's easier to do than with the brushy end now that my little jar of white ink is kind of eh congealing. :P
Also over the weekend I did finish up reprocessing all the hand-drawn pages, so the text is sharper and the big "subscription preview" versions are no longer oversharpened, phew.
