Anyway, here's what I'm promoting today!
New Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan story "Invasion".
A new Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan story, Invasion, began yesterday, both on the ROCR.net site and on the Chronicles of the Witch Queen website. The story is about an invasion of nightmarish creatures in the peaceful Clwydian town of Dungill Fens, and about the search for the faerie Abúi, who has gone missing from her home in the capital of the Gnomian Republic. It reunites Jodoque, Kel, Ragnarok, Jake and Hildegard with some of Kel's friends and family from the Gnomian Republic, last seen in The Rite of Serfdom. The action of the first chapter is set in a forest on the farthest edges of the Gnomian Republic, where humans do not go. We will see humans in the second chapter though, as well as some very strange creatures indeed...
We've got some great artwork lined up for you, and I use the word "we" advisedly. The colour work in the opening chapter is done by Drooling Fan Girl, already a recurring guest colourist for ROCR. As the chapter progresses, you'll find she's outdone herself this time. Someone should give her a paid colouring job! She doesn't want me to say that, though. The second chapter will have colour by Mravac Kid and backgrounds by my studio-mate Calvin Bexfield. I hope you'll be as blown away by his drafting skills as I was when I first saw them.
The publication of Invasion happens while that other story, Feral, is still on hiatus. We'll be, er, co-ordinating with some other webcomics later on, and as a result, Invasion has to be run on a fixed schedule. Feral isn't abandoned, though; there are 10 new installments on my hard drive, which will only have to be cleaned up, coloured, lettered and prepared for web publication.
A preview (not safe for work due to nudity, but showing off DFG's colour work very nicely:
