Demongate High is here! (5/20/13)
Well, we did it. The all-new Demongate High comic is now up, even on just a week's notice. Hopefully that shows how excited and motivated I am to get working on it. We've got a gallery and everything, and five full pages! I also am experimenting with a landscape format, better suited to desktop screens than the old-fashioned paper-style portrait orientation. DoormaNt is now on hiatus until further notice, though I may do periodic updates, time permitting.
DoormaNt updated and hiatus (5/12/13)
DoormaNt is updated, for what may be the final time for a while. I'm placing DoormaNt on indefinite hiatus, and will be starting Demongate High next week. Check the DoormaNt site for more details. New comic will be coming next week!
DoormaNt is back (5/6/13)
DoormaNt is back. Sorry for the lack of an update last week. I seem to be getting worse and worse at this. Maybe it's time to switch to a different comic... maybe Demongate High. It's got plenty of great stuff going for it.
Probably no comic this week (4/28/13)
No DoormaNt this week, in all likelihood. Various issues are preventing this, including vast amounts of grading and work on the house and yard, though honestly I feel guilty not doing the comic this week. Hopefully it will mean an even better comic next week! We'll see.
DoormaNt's back (4/22/13)
DoormaNt Is back. Sorry for the lack of an update last week. If you didn't check Twitter, I had lots of work and also company visiting last weekend, which gave me little time for my hobby. So, we're back now! I know, I'm terrible... I've been missing a lot more of DoormaNt than I ever did of Darkbolt. 6_6;
DoormaNt updated and more (4/8/13)
DoormaNt's up on time. Hardly any cheating this time, amazing! All new footage! A couple things to share this week, too. First, I came upon this TV Tropes entry for Darkbolt. It's a couple years old, but I never even knew it existed! And also, one of my students, Kash Chung, just posted his ongoing project, X-Caliber, so check that out too!
April Fool's... or not (4/1/13)
So once again I cheated on DoormaNt this week. In fact, I've never cheated so much before! I reused two entire pages from last year. Hooray for laziness (honestly, I did that to save time since Sunday is Easter, and family plans would have prevented more work on the comic than that). So, more revelations come to light this week. We'll see where things go from here. Oh, and don't worry, there's no April Fool's comic this year. ^_^
On time, somehow (3/25/13)
DoormaNt somehow managed to get updated on time, despite initially lacking motivation and then not feeling well Sunday evening. But here it is! As I said, I started out not sure what I was doing and honestly questioning whether I should even continue the comic, but I ended up pretty happy with it. Lots of story is coming out now, along with some things that will be very important down the road!
Back from the dead (3/18/13)
DoormaNt is back this week! Sorry for the lack of an update last week. I'm feeling back in the swing of things as far as doing the comic goes, but I'm beginning to once again have doubts about the flow and direction of the story. I think it might either be that I missed the update last week, or I just got so accustomed to the flow of Darkbolt for so long that I'm not sure about this new pace and feel. I dunno. Without any feedback from anyone, it's hard to tell. We'll see how it goes, though.
Excuses, excuses, excuses... (3/11/13)
No comic this week. Not only is Michelle in Jamaica without her tablet or a decent connection, I've also come down with one of those throat-devouring colds that makes it very difficult for me to concentrate on much beyond how crappy I feel. Really not looking forward to a week of teaching in this condition. Sigh. Anyway, should be back up next week. Sorry!
