It’s not good news for the Order!
Currently BT’s been updating on Sundays. I’ve been finding that difficult to maintain because I do Livestream commissions on Friday and Saturday. That’s usually several hours straight of full on drawing which leaves my shoulders and back hurting (I’m getting old). It’s making it difficult to try to sit down for a few more hours to finish BT.
I seem to be able to do more than one comic a night on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I might try to update either on Wednesdays or Friday. I’m not sure yet which will be better.
Suffice to say that BT will update this week. I just need to figure out when’s the best time to reliably do it.
I’ve got all 17 issues of comics uploaded! Right now all of the posts have the filename/date as the page title. I don’t intend to change that, cuz that’s … 17 issues full of pages. That’s a bit much, I think. I should have more free time opening up now so I’m going to try making a few pages of BT as a buffer and upload them when I can, maybe once a week (But better than nothing I suppose).
There will probably be a caveat page coming up warning people that BT’s going to have a radical shift in style and perhaps even story. There’s a lot of things about the world of Raekarta that I’ve changed in the past few years and so some of the things I’ve done in BT’s past might not be consistent with what I intend to do in the future. (This was one of the big reasons I wanted to reboot). But it’s too hard to reboot after 17 issues worth. And I’m just one person, not a business trying to make comics.
So there might be some bumps in the road, but hopefully we’ll see some regular updates in the near future.
So, I keep staring at BT and wondering why I can’t get it to work. I just can’t. I try to draw it and it looks like ass and I give up and work on other things.
I don’t have a lot of free time so I can’t really just work on BT whenever I feel like it, which is making it that much harder. Trust me when I say that there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about BT.
I just really hate the art on it. When I first made it, I didn’t really care. I’m not sure why I care now. But the more that I work on the art for it in the now, the more I hate what I’m doing. Not really whining, just putting out there why it’s not getting done.
So I think I might just go ahead and upload the old BT archive to the new site, and pick up where I left off – and try not to worry about how it looks. People don’t seem to give a damn or they liked the way it looked anyway.
There’s a big caveat here, I have no idea where I was going with the last comic issue. Well other than I wanted to introduce another Raekartan race. So if I do go back to updating BT, there’s probably going to be some obvious jump between that last page, and the next new one. I might also redo some of the older, uglier pages as I move forward.
Right now I really don’t have a whole lot of free time. And I’m hoping that BT will pull in donations so I can work less on worky work stuff and more on BT. But I will try to get it started again as soon as I can.
I hope this is acceptable to BT fans that have been writing to me, asking me to bring it back.
Don’t hold your breath, I’m not making any promises right now but I do want to try to work on it as much as you guys want me to.
