I’ve had quite a few messages about this lately, so I thought I’d probably better make a public announcement: neither I, nor AmCap, are dead, I’m just busy with SERIOUS LIFE EVENTS of a GRAND NATURE, (you can read all about it on my personal tumblr if you happen to be that bored and self-loathing) and they’ve kind of spannered up the works a little. But there’s a whole arc to come before Winter Soldier comes out in April next year, which I hope to start posting on Monday, and also, I’m fine, I promise. You’re incredibly sweet to have asked.
Here is a drawing that didn’t make it into Little Dog.
madmoll asked: Hi! I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but I'm curious about how you do your drawing. Do you draw on a computer? What program or tools do you use? I'm 800% unfamiliar with how it might work.
No stress :) It’s drawn with pen and ink (here’s some details about that). But I also use photoshop to make the whites white and the blacks black and to move panels around.
As (unfortunately) per, The Tumblr decided to have a series of small heart attacks while I was editing a panel of the last comic I posted, meaning that it’s re-uploading wrong on a continual loop, mostly in the form of selecting only one or two of the sections to re-upload at seeming random, and in no particular order.
Just to let you know that I’m trying to fix this right now, and I hold out great hope. But I recommend not reblogging the last post right now because odds are you’ll only get part of it.
ETA: OKAY IT FINALLY WORKED THANK YOU TUMBLR <3
To all of the very wonderful people who wrote in to tell me how to fix the First Page link situation. For anyone else who’d like to know, all you have to do is link to the relevant tag (which in my case is “comics”) add “/chrono” to the end of the link.
Guys, your help is sincerely appreciated. Here is a slightly edited pencil drawing of angry, teenaged Steve from my other blog.
phasmafelis asked: Hi! I love your comic, for a lot of reasons there's no room for. I'm having some trouble navigating, though. The First Page link doesn't go to the first page, I haven't found any easy way to go straight to the first comic, the Archive link is hidden at the bottom of the page, and the Next button goes to the previous comic and vice versa. Maybe I just don't get Tumblr? I'm totally recommending you to my friends, but it'd be easier if I didn't have to explain how the site works. :) Cheers!
Hi - thanks for bringing this stuff to my attention (and for your lovely compliments, of course!)
Probably some other people have noticed this stuff as well, so I’m posting it live. I think, however, that unfortunately most of this stuff is just The Tumblr and its odd ways. Basically, Tumblr seems to me to be not so much of an archival tool as it is an Here Look At This New Thing Immediately tool.
For example, I’m kicking myself about the first page link, because this actually didn’t occur to me when I made it, but now that you mention it, of course since when I load new comics it pushes the older comics back, meaning that the actual page link for the ‘first page’ is going to change! I’m not super sure what I can do about that, so if anyone has any suggestions, please do tell me, because a first page link is a very fine thing and I would love to offer it.
Also I’m pretty sure the previous/next thing is just tumblr too, or at least it’s something I’ve noticed on many if not most tumblr blogs I myself have checked out. Likewise, if anyone has any suggestions about how to change this up, I would love to hear them.
Additionally - this is just a general note for everybody here: I’m sorry for the delay in posting new comics. I’ve had some issues with RSI of late and it’s made drawing a bit painful/useless (you can probably see it in the last one that went up, come to think of it). But I’m feeling a lot better now, and anticipating comics being up this week.
