Dialog for This Comic
Here's a sample of what I've been working on for the past few months!
Avatar Sprite Template: Female Bunker
Tron Lines: Green
Animation: Hands forward, body arched
Color Swatches: W5 W7 YG13 E33 E37
extra suit pattern is different at this scale -- looks messy
went with male suit pattern
no chest highlight
gemstone is covered in last two frames -- OK?
arm highlights will be easier to draw digitally. sorry that these last few are messy -- see male animation for better drawing.
female suit -- no chest highlights -- went with male suit patterning b/c makes for cleaner animation
Large-scale animation drawn before being shrunk down to avatar size

So this is Mark typing:
Some of you might be familiar with a little site called www.PurpleFuzzyMonster.com. It’s where I’ve been working on some game designs, and Leanne and I have decided (for accounting simplicity’s sake) to wrap PFM’s products in with Saijiki Stories. In other words, Autumnside Productions is now the umbrella of a micro-scale entertainment group, so there are going to be some changes to the sites to reflect that. The immediate changes will be here at Autumnside.com, so no worries for those of you with links to Saijiki Stories.
Purple Fuzzy Monster’s first game is Starships, a space combat miniatures game. After we make it available through all sorts of on-line stores, we should have learned enough with it that the Saijiki Stories will be made available through those same outlets.

There are reasons why Summerside is taking forever. At this point, the question is to the tune of … “well, of course X is going to do Y, X would be a fool not to, what with having the means, motive, and opportunity for grand success at it. How does our heroine escape that particular peril?”
I will actually script Summerside and get it up and posted one of these days. I swear. It’s just a lot more complicated than it looks on the outside.

Still working on video game content, but I’m pleased to report that scripting has started for Summerside, if only in fits and starts. I have one of the missing pieces that I needed for it to make sense. (:

Hi everyone! Happy Thanksgiving, if you’re in the US, and if you’re elsewhere, have a terrific day! (:
I have a guest strip up in the blog over at Little Vampires! Drop by and check it out, and check out Becky’s great comic while you’re there. (;
Hope you’ve enjoyed Springside! There’ll be full details on Tuesday, but I’ll be taking a short break for a while. This doesn’t mean no comics (there will be comics!) but it will be a bit before Summerside starts. Take it easy, and have great holidays!

My buffer for Springside is complete. All the files have been uploaded. They are ready for your viewing as soon as they hit the schedule.
I’ll be spending the next few weeks working on getting the house ready to move, working to bring you a terrific Summerside script and comic, and … yeah.
I’m shaking, right now, literally. Springside has been a huge effort for me, and I hope you all will enjoy the rest of the story.
Edit: I realize that I haven’t updated you on the doctor’s visit. My doc says I have osteoarthritic tendinitis in my shoulder. This came complete with a calcific deposit you could see on the X-ray previews. I wasn’t smart enough to take pictures to show you. D’oh. I’ll be headed to physical therapy starting this week, and hopefully that will help.
