Issue 22 - Page 14

This issue is extra special because it's a Sponsored Issue! Thank you!

Hey guys! Welcome back! Thank you all for being so supportive and understanding about the downtime! I really appreciate it!

Hopefully seeing Ruby Mae's antics over the last couple of months has been entertaining. I'll continue posting photos of her for anyone who wants their daily dose of corgi. The link to her archive is up at the top of the page next to the AYAD and CN:H ones.

A number of images were finished during the downtime. Want to see? Please click on the small images below. The first three are double spreads. The final two are guest art for Keeping Up With Thursday.

I've also restarted my daily sketchbook practice. If you'd like to keep tabs on my progress and cheer me on, please visit my Tumblr's 'sketchbook' tag.

I think that's all for the moment. See you tomorrow with the next page of A Year and a Day! Thanks guys!

Thank you! It was a fun challenge to do. :D

I think On The Trail and Pie Fight are the best of them, but Escape is a VERY close third.
Darc
Thanks! I personally like 'Maid of Metal' a lot. It was at an interesting angle at I'd like to play more with. Images that let me work with perspective and lighting are enjoyable. :D

Hello again, I was SOOO tickled to see an RSS update from you! YAY! Man I just realized how much your style has progressed. Lovely work!
Darc
Thanks! Yeah, taking time away kind of sucks, but I was going slowly nuts from everything that's happened this year. A little time away to get things in order really helped. :D

And there was great rejoicing throughout the kingdom! Great to see the comic back (though Ruby was good entertainment in the meantime).
Darc
Thank you! Oh yeah, Ruby Mae has a following now. I wish I'd taken more pictures of Holly when she was alive. She just hated cameras so much.

Welcome back! Thank you for all of the work that you put in on both comics. Excellent job! The Daily Corg is a nice addition to the mix as well.
Darc
Thanks! I just need to remember to keep the photos of her coming. Luckily I snapped a few Wednesday. I've a feeling she's going to be too tired from daycamp to do anything other than sleep today.

On the Trail is Awesome! I love my birthday present. Thanks for being a part of it. It really cheered me up after some of my issues during that week. And the raven is such a nice touch.
Darc
Awesome! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :D Thank you! :D
