I generally save this folder for the best art I find, including pieces I like from friends. There's a lot of great artists out there who definitely deserve to be recognized. Keep up the good work, everyone!

So, here's the story:

"The War for Cyrin: Struggle of the Clans" will without question be completely done before I graduate in June. However, it probably will not be done before the end of spring break.

I have the final 13 pages and an end cover in the works, but I feel like they've been crawling along at a snail's pace. My goal was to have everything sketched out by midterm at latest. But, that's not going to happen. My microbiology grade is hurting pretty bad right now, and if I'm not mistaken, this midterm grade might be the worst I've gotten in college. Ever. Not a failing grade, but still pretty awful. That being said, I probably won't even get to the coloring stage until very late in the term. I have to get to studying more micro pronto or I can kiss my hopes of a decent final grade, and my long all-A's-and-B's streak that I've kept since my first term of freshman year, goodbye.

Don't expect much of anything from me until mid to late March. I will likely be studying my tailfeathers off and keeping up with grad school/career/research conference stuff, and will have very little time to actually fit in something artistic.

I have to admit, 'Clans' has been a fun ride all the way through. I know I could have gone into more detail for some of the plot points, like focusing a lot more on the clans' internal conflicts in addition to focusing just on Blaze, Chieftains' political struggles, more details in Thirah's plans, etc. etc. But, the likelihood of my being able to keep up with such a story beyond college and into grad school/holding down a new job are slim to none. And though it may be a surprise to some, I will admit that I have grown weary of doing these pages. Digital would have been a far greater challenge, and one that I would have had zero time for, but the entire traditional-media comic process has been taking a toll on my time, supplies, and me physically and mentally.

I am not discontinuing this comic. I repeat, I am not discontinuing this comic! It is so close to being done, and I will see it through to the end! My priorities are just shifting to more serious things in life, and in all honesty, although there were some areas I could have improved on that I just discussed, I'm glad this comic is ending when it does. At its heart, it is still a classic good-conquers-evil story with an important message to the world. I wouldn't have it be anything more or less than that.

It's been a great ride so far, so all of you hang on to the final loop, and I will be back eventually to finish this thing off.

Thank you for all your support through it all!! Like I said, I just need all the prayers and well-wishes I can get right now to save the second half of my term in micro.

When are you going to post your next comic? They are really good and I miss getting to read them.
EagleFlyte Featured By Owner 1 day ago  Hobbyist General Artist
The last 13 pages and end cover are in the works. I've just been bogged down both with schoolwork and grad school prep/ job searching stuff. I'm hoping to have at least four or six pages up by spring break (starts sometime around St. Pat's Day).

I apologize for the delay, but it's like I said in my last journal, it's been a doozy of a term so far. Rest assured, the comic will be done by beginning of the summer. :)

-Thanks for the support :)
