Tinker (the little grey creature) joins the fray! ...more or less.

This, by the way, was inspired by my cat. Mina Meanie (named after Ming the Merciless - for very good reasons!)

Ive been experimenting with Tinker a lot, so you might see little tweaks as the strip goes on. Nothing major, but I am refining his face, and the fur color might change a shade but nothing intentionally drastic.

On a different note, work has been a little rough lately, we have been short people, I have been filling in a lot and its affecting the time I have to work on the comic.

As of now my buffer is dangerously low and I just cannot keep up. So, to give myself some breathing room, I will be going to a once a week schedule for a month, starting Feb 4th, and returning to twice a week again on March 4th.

This will give me time to finish up some special projects I have been working on, including the Thank You for subscribing special I have, and then bust my hump all through Feb to rebuild my buffer again.

I hate doing this, but I don't see any other option short of winning the lottery so I can comic full time!

Thanks, I'm not really going far...basically I'm just going to my drafting table to draw up as many new pages as I can in a month.

Although, come the end of May, I will be taking a short vacation, I'm spending 4 glorious days at Phoenix Comicon!

I am going to game, shop to fill holes in my comic collection, and stand in line to get an autograph from Bruce Boxleitner!

Quality trumps quantity!
Draginbeard 14th Jan 2013, 8:21 AM edit delete reply
I think that way too. The more I strive to improve, the longer pages take to finish.

I'm happy with the progress I am making, I just wish I was a little quicker at it.

I had to take a break my self! Only i didnt really plan on it very well! Lol, Take the time dude, I know how important it is to take breaks now and then!

Well, I'm not really taking a break right now. I do have one planed, I just need to get my buffer built up so it wont interfere with my update schedule!

Great page. Love that new creature design.

Tinker is a lot of fun, I have a few things I want to do with him before his story arc is over.

Bad timing on my part with how busy you are, but I suggest a Tinker spin-off!
Draginbeard 14th Jan 2013, 4:22 PM edit delete reply
Not sure about a spin off, but there will be plenty of Tinker before lm through with the next few chapters.

It wouldn't taste as bad with a bit of cumin and chili!

Dusty old bones need all the seasoning they can get!

An ally for Jolly! Or maybe two, depending on that mysterious voice commanding Tinker! At least now Jolly will have someone shorter than him tagging along! XD

No problemo on once a week, man! I'm having trouble keeping up with mine too. Must be contagious! :P
Draginbeard 16th Jan 2013, 7:50 AM edit delete reply
Yes, the voice. Before the end of the chapter, that mystery will be solved, and more about Tinkers involvement in all of this will be uncovered.

Ahh, I know how you feel, had to take a break for myself over the holidays and don't have any time at the moment to do more than upload the pages now and then. it seems everybody is ill at the moment and those of us who aren't get their share of work too.
winter season, you gotta love it.

God I hope I don't get this flu that's going around. I had it last year and I was a miserable mess for nearly a month!

Draginbeard 16th Jan 2013, 7:53 AM edit delete reply
Thanks, hoping to get both more interesting and fun as we go along!

you should have entered Jolly in the CF charcter battle it would be awesome!
Draginbeard 16th Jan 2013, 10:37 PM edit delete reply
Actually, I might enter Tinker next time it comes around, but I'm so swamped right now I have just enough time to get what I need done.
Centcomm 16th Jan 2013, 10:40 PM edit delete reply
awwww - I take it you have been following it?
Draginbeard 17th Jan 2013, 4:13 PM edit delete reply
I hadn't really kept up with it, I'm pretty tight for time lately and didn't want to get involved with a project I might have to drop out of, but I have the gist of whats going on.
