Hey guys! In case anyone missed it, there's been a bit of a schedule change... Tuesdays - new 'A Year and a Day' comic. Wednesdays - new 'Mail Bag' comic. Thursdays and Fridays - new 'Code Name: Hunter' comic. You can find the latest pages of 'A Year and a Day' and 'Mail Bag' on the sidebar of the site.

In other news, I've a few things to share! First off, here's a few 'Texts From Superheroes' with Mrs. Pennyworth talking with one of my favorite characters in the DC comics universe. Thanks Petrov!

Next is this cute drawing of a Precocized Moraine and Roderick by Chris Paulsen, creator of 'Precocious'. Too cute! Thank you, Chris!

Finally, I got a new desk! Even better, it moves! I'm hoping being able to switch between siting and standing will help relieve some of the pressure on the shoulder/collarbone area, reducing some of these flareups. We'll see.

Thanks guys!

Horses! That's a magical first panel. And our own dear Buck House has never looked better. Also, when did Max learn to ride?
Kurtis
His family owns land and horses in Scotland.
lemurvid
Damn! You're right! Completely forgot that.
Darc
Thanks! I enjoy drawing horses a little too much at times. :D
Petrov

Darc
Maaaaybe...

Dat detail work. Simply amazing. Also, poor Moraine...
Darc
Thank you! I've been trying to apply some of the lighting tips I've been reading about into the comic. Want to spice things up a bit.

That drawing of the palace in the 1st panel is amazing, along with the shadows, such fine details, it jumps out at you, must of taken quite some time to draw it. It's just one of the many great reasons I enjoy CN:H so much. Your work is of the highest quality, and I should know, since I work in quality in engineering in the aerospace field. You'd make a really great technical drawing engineer.
Darc
Thanks! *blush* It's fun to focus on the backgrounds and scenery now and then. :D

Your so very welcome, a question, how did you produce that hazy look of the palace?
Darc
There's a semi-transparent layer of color over the palace to give it a softer look. It' a cheap Photoshop trick, but effective. :D

I am so glad I found your comic again! I read it in 2005 until I got married and moved in 2008. I loved it then and I love it more now. Your art is gorgeous and the story captivating. I just spent the last 2 days reading it from the beginning.
Darc
Thank you! I'm glad you found us again. We've still got a few more years of story to go at least. :D
Joel
Wait, why does Moraine look so young? Isn't this back in the present when she is older?
Darc
Yep, we're in the present. As for how she looks... we'll have to wait and see. *evil grin*
Karin Klug-Lais
I found this totally by accident about a year ago. Keeps getting better.
Darc
Thank you! :D
