Woah, it has been way too long since I made a new post here.
As some of you have already noticed I have added in a bunch of new pages onto the site in the top menu bar, these provide some help navigating the site, like the Archive Page which contains links to each of the major chapters of the comic, or the About Page which outlines what the site/comic is all about, and the others help provide background information.
The Characters page fairly obviously outlines each of the major (i.e. named/speaking) characters that has so far appeared in the comic. Everyone is there, from Kohta and Khali to the two city guards and that Human Mage Kohta met in the Jungle Ruins, so if you ever see someone on the comic page and don’t know who it is, you can just flip to the characters page to find out more about them.
The Locations page contains some brief background information about the various sites of interest the comic has visited so far, and should be expanded soon as Kohta and his pals journey to new places.
The Factions page outlines the various major factions present in Laosang Province and Tal’Lushan in particular, each of the groups listed there has power and importance in the region and might hinder or aid Kohta and his friends as they try to save the city.
The Races page lists the various major civilisations that we have seen in the comic so far, from the different human and elven kingdoms to some of those we have not seen much of yet.
The Bestiary is a short page describing some of the beasties that we have seen in the pages of the comic so far, it is an actually surprisingly short page, which is disappointing, so rest assured we’ll be seeing more nasty creatures in the comic soon enough to help expand the list.
And finally there is an Extras page to include any content, like images, maps or even short comics that I make that are connected to the setting Kohta’s adventures are based in and help flesh out the world a bit more.
Also there is a Links page on the menu bar which contains links to my online galleries and other websites, including links to social media accounts.
Which reminds me, I have started accounts on Twitter and Tumblr, actually I started them a while ago to follow various artists and other people that I’m keen on and have recently decided to start uploading stuff there.
The Twitter account is located here, https://twitter.com/Obhan_Two, and is mainly used to announce status updates for the site, comic updates here, or any special announcements that need to be made quickly (like if the site goes down you can check there to hear what I’m doing about it or find out where the comic is being hosted in the meantime).
The Tumblr account is located here, http://obhan.tumblr.com/ and is good place for to upload any and all of the art that I oocasionally make aside from the comic, everything I make will be posted there, including SFW content that usually goes up on DA, NSFW content that goes up on HF aswell as sketches, WIP’s and Linearts that could include anything in between. So if you like our stuff and might like to see a bit more, you can check it out.
Anyway, that’s about it for now, I hope you guys are all doing well, and if you have any ideas for future site updates, or noticed anything I ballsed up, you can tell me in hte comments below, anyway, catch you later guys!
Hey everyone, just a heads up but in the next couple of weeks I’m planning on changing a few things between our websites and galleries, basically to make it all look a bit more professional.
I’ve mentioned in the past that I hope to one day be able to make a living out of being a webcomic/digital artist and this is all in an effort to move closer to achieving that, the main idea before Christmas was to start taking on Commissions, maybe think about making some short comic pdf’s that could be sold from my sites, but the VATMOSS stuff that cropped up has put the kiebash on that plan, so I’m thinking of working towards maybe setting up a Patreon account.
Changes should be mostly simple at first, I’ve been working on updating to our gallery’s a bit more regularly and I’m also going to try and finally update this website, you know change the theme maybe, add links and more background stuff to it. Also I’m planning on getting our new webcomic idea off the ground and into the final phase before I launch it too in the next month or two.
If anyone has any ideas, comments or criticisms I’d love to hear them, I’m kinda striking out into no-mans land here.
But anyway like I said this is all just a heads up that hopefully you should be seeing more stuff from me soon.
Hope all you guys and gals are doing fine and enjoying the New Year!
Hey Everyone, I hope you’re enjoying the summer sun and all that.
This is just a quick announcement to say that I’m going to be changing the art style of the comic starting with the new scene on Monday.
It’s nothing major, just really an evolution of my style that’s been happening for the last two years. The facial features are more detailed and the lineart is now coloured to match the characters colour tones more.
It might look a little funky for the first few pages, but I’m sure with a little practice it’ll even out soon enough.
Anyway, all the best,
You may notice things look a little different, and here’s why.
So there I was, earlier today, with a free evening. I’d gotten tomorrow’s KTS page made well ahead of time, and figured I’d update the version of WordPress the site uses (I’d heard that if you used an outdated version it could more easily get hacked) so I went into my dashboard and did just that, nice and simple.
Only then I saw that ComicPress (the specific Theme/Plugin thing that turns WordPress into a great webcomic template) also had an update that was due, and I thought that since the main WordPress update was so painless, why not do the ComicPress one too?
So I did. And everything changed.
Suddenly all the comics were gone, the thumbnails for them had disappeared, the format of the site looked completely different, instead of the nice simple background colour there was some sort of grunge/industrial theme thing that was very dark and there were sidebars and rogue widgets everywhere.
So naturally I panicked, and started trying to reset everything back before the update, which I couldn’t do. But after a bit of hassle I found some of the instructions of the update and with some trial and error I reckon I’ve managed to return the site mostly back to what it looked like before, with a couple of minor changes.
So everything should be fine now, I even managed to save everyone’s comments (apart from on a couple of blog posts) and removed a couple of comic pages in the archive that had been duplicated for some reason. But if anyone finds a problem or something just comment and I’ll get to it straight away.
Apologies for any inconvenience/downtime caused, I’m gonna go chillout now and do something pointless and that is no threat to the site in any way possible, phew.
So if you’ve already seen today’s page (16/04/2014) then you’ll know I made a major mistake with the dialogue colours in the conversation between Khali and Kya, giving Khali the light blue used before on Kya and Kya the faint purple used for Khali, which is annoying.
Many people have already pointed this out and I can only apologise for the slip-up, it’s a stupid mistake to make that spoils a lot of the immersion I’ve tried to improve recently in the comic.
Still it’s a mistake made and quickly remedied (the revised page with the correctly coloured dialogue is already up). I’m sorry again that I overlooked it when doing the final check on the page and I promise to try my best not to let it happen again.
