First off, Happy Mothers Day to my mom, and all you other moms out there!

Next off, there are a few birthdays to shout out, Kathy, my good-at-helping-me-find-my-corpse pal, back in my Asherons Call days, is having hers today!

Happy Birthday to Dawn from way back in my Diamond Detective days!

And lastly to an old D&D buddy, Tanya who has hers next weekend. Happy Birthday ladies!

Just a quick look to see what the Artifact is up to. It seems Tamper has his own bag of tricks to pull from.

Ive been goofing around with Tampers fur, and coloring a bit, same as I did for Tinker. I have to say drawing these little gremlins is pretty fun.

For anyone interested, here is what the warning labels on the can says:

This stuff is really totally crazy sticky!

Warning, Do Not:
Eat, sniff, roll in, or paint your brother with this!

And if you're browsing around any of the comic sites he is on, give the Artifact and Tamper a friendly vote =)

Still have a ways to go, but looking forward to getting the artifact more involved in the story!

Ah, the good ol' Superglue Trick. Genuinely curious about how they are going to implement this.
Also, I only just now noticed the visual pun of the Hidden Shine..

Yup, cliff face is a solid clue on how that place fits into the big picture.

Superglue is a little thing Ive had in mind for a long while, you guys might get a real kick out of what these two are going to do with it.

One thing I notice about your comic is the pacing and structure of the pages. With an ongoing adventure type strip, many folks do not pace it properly and end up having pages where nothing really happens and some where too much happens. You are very good at making sure none of your pages are just filling, there is always something to take note of. Good work!

Glad you like the pacing. =)

Because I only update once a week, pacing is one of the elements Im never really sure if Im getting right. I want each page to be entertaining, lead smoothly into the next, and always push the story forward.

I know what you mean about some other comics, though. I read a good number of the long form story ones, and I pay close attention to how the pace themselves. Most do a fair job, but there are definitely a few that stall out and get hung up on a scene that could have been worked out in a few pages, but 20 pages later they are still in the same room, deciding what to have for lunch.

My second chapter was badly paced, I think I could have cut a good 5-8 pages out of the cave scene.

Too many players on the board? Time for Darwin to sort them out :D

A little easier said than done, I'm afraid. We haven't seen all the players yet, but its coming, and soon.

hahahah nicely done again.. like the cave and the glue (very funny)..can we paint a sister with it ?

You could paint a sister, but I would recommend you leave the country before she worked herself free... =P
