The Confession, Part II

« First

Sketch dump, dreadful news, and hey lookit I've widened the website.

First, business.
I *thought* that making my comics in the skyscraper format would make them easier to read on a website, but apparently Blogger doesn't want to cooperate. So, I resized it a bit, now hopefully you'll be able to read the text without needing to zoom in.
Hopefully.

I will not have any space-hogging sidebars on my next webcomic, I assure you. I'll probably use Wordpress or Smackjeeves (I might go all fancy and get my very own domain), but I'm not shopping yet.

Still, I should let you know that EV is approaching its end. I have decided to conclude the series this upcoming January. Exactly when that happens will depend on whether I can get back on my posting schedule before school is up or not, so we don't have a date for doomsday yet.

I'll try to give you as much bonus material as I can as we get closer.

Speaking of which, here are a number of doodles you might like. I'd posted some of these on the Facebook page, but not all of them.

About the radio silence

Two years ago, I entered into a sort of hiatus for the majority of October, not posting anything of significance.
The reason being that that was the year I dressed as Link for Halloween, and spent a large portion of the month working on my costume.

A similar thing happened this year.
Sorry. I'll really have to scramble if I want to catch up.

Meantime, though, feeling out of practice, I got to doodling. One thing led to another and, I made this.

Toodles.

Tails, are you okay?

Comic Con

I have no comic.
I spent all my comic drawing time doing homework yesterday.
I spent all my homework doing time the day before at Comic Con.

Honestly, it's a trade that could have ended worse. I'll finish the one I've started and post it maybe tomorrow or the next day. Dang, though I was hoping I could have gotten caught up (I'm still a week behind, if you haven't noticed).

I think I'm going to switch my official release day to Friday instead of Monday. I'll see what it's like after I get caught up.

Comic Con was fun, though. I'm talking about the comparatively small one they had in Salt Lake this last weekend (not the big one in San Diego maybe a month before). My phone ran out of batteries, so I was unable to get any pictures other than this:


So just imagine the awesomeness of that picture, continued over several hours and countless genres and fandoms. The cosplay alone was enough fun to justify going. (Remind me to make a real costume for next time).

Thanks for your understanding, and keep on being awesome, y'all!

Daily Doodle 7: Time to wrap it up

Here's the last of the daily doodles. That was fun.


This group shot looks suspiciously like the beginnings of a new website banner.
Hm...

By the way, I think we completely nailed the view counts and such, so there's no worry for the ad box getting cut off. I've got two comics sitting on my desk begging for ink and a third one on the way. With some luck, I'll be able to shake this hiatus thing for a while.

Daily Doodle 4: Fado's motorcycle

I felt like drawing him on a motorcycle.
Don't judge me.

Daily Doodle 3: Fursona

Late?
I don't know what you're talking about.

Fine. I drew this at work yesterday and forgot to post it or take it with me. I was feeling so ill by the time the day was over, I just crashed.

Slightly variant from my usual style. Ears gave me trouble, and the claws don't add, but otherwise I like it.

Another doodle coming in a couple hours.

Daily Doodle 2: Fenic and the mirror lake

A little more serene than the last doodle.
A little more somber.

Friday, August 16, 2013

I thought you said you were coming out of hiatus

Well, I was...
I meant to...
Cut me some slack, I'm trying.

My mom and I recently moved into a new house. Rather than sell the old place, we're going to rent it...but since the house was never really finished (plus five kids over the course of twenty years living in it) means we want to fix it up and make it nice before people move in.

I don't know how many of you have ever done renovation before, but it's unbelievably time consuming. Especially when you've only got two people doing it, both of them work full-time, and neither of them are experts.* By the time I'm done for the day, I'm tired, a little nauseous, and unwilling to do anything more than watch Futurama (which sometimes I have a hard time getting around to doing).

*Okay, I confess we've got a couple of contractors working with us too; but that's only for the stuff we can't really do ourselves, like plumbing and tile work. Not electrical, though. HAHAHA, I CAN DO THAT!

I used to be able to draw at work, but our staff has been a little short (and our workload a little tall) this last while, so I've had no luck there. Mornings are my best bet, and that really means (ideally) only an hour a day -- and there are other things I spread that time between.

So, yes. I owe you two weeks worth of comics, and the third due date of Monday is rapidly advancing...I'll get them out, mark my words, but I just don't know when.

Thanks for your patience.

And keep watching for the daily doodles. :)

Happy Birthday, EV!

Today is my birthday. (yay!)

I got an Avatar: The Last Airbender comic book, a vacation in the Wyoming wilderland, and a new house.

This website, evcomics.blogspot.com turned two years old today; meaning that the whole comic strip turns three approximately sometime around now.

And so I'm giving it (and you) a present.

I've got another comic in the works. It will be up sometime hither or thither this week. After that, the half-hiatus is officially over and I will resume my once-a-week schedule. New comics will be posted on Mondays. I'd love to jump back into the twice-a-week thing, but I wasn't joking about the new house. I'm going to be moving boxes for a long time, then school will be starting not too long after that, and I need to pay more attention to homework.

It's still going to be good though. Life is good.

Anyhoo, here's a freaky drawing from my Tumblr -- just about the only thing I could find since I'm posting from a computer that's not mine.

I drew some things



I'm out of town for the weekend, but I'll be back Monday with something special (since it's my birthday) to celebrate the second anniversary of the new website, and approximately the third of the series.

Looks like half-hiatus will be ending shortly thereafter.
~Riley

Friday, June 21, 2013

Oh yeah

I said I might post something this week.

It's not a comic, but it's something.

I wanted to see what different facial expressions I could give Fado without the assistance of his mouth -- just those weird closed eye...things (seriously, what are those?).
It seemed like it would be harder than it was.
Happy Friday.

Thursday, June 13, 2013

Hello?

Not making any promises, and I'm not coming out of half-hiatus yet, but you might see a comic next week.

Meantime, there's this:


Happy Thursday

Half-hiatus.

There has been a tragedy in my family.
I hate the thought of going on hiatus, but my family is more important than EV. Until further notice, I am not following my Monday/Friday schedule. I think drawing will help me feel better, so you might see a thing or two in the next little while, but it's not going to be the same.
I don't know how long I'm going to keep this in effect. Sorry.

Preview of next comic

Since today's comic will be delayed until Monday, i figured I'd give you a small snippet to tide you over till then.
No, this is not a prank or a mix-up. I guess Fenic has just been working out (in the robot factory) or something.
~Riley

Quick change in plans.

Okay. Change of plans.

I'm afraid there will be no comic on Friday (I'll post a preview and some other stuff as I see fit). The script I've written out is going to take a little more work than usual...so it's going to be pushed off to Monday.

Monday's comic will be up Wednesday. Then, next Friday we'll be on normal schedule again.

If you've been biting your nails, you'd better start looking into those weird acrylic replacements.

Fan Art!

Oh, my pleasure cannot be contained.
I have received my first bit of fan art!

Michelle, an avid follower of the comic, posted these on the Facebook page earlier this week. For some reason, it did not notify me, so I only saw them yesterday.



I have, in the past, had a couple of friends draw EV-related work (you may remember, the guest comics I've posted variously) but this is different. This is someone drawing EV characters in an effort to explore the characters and enhance the world. Or possibly, it's an effort to geek out and show off your OTPs. (Who am I to judge?) Whatever the reason, this is fan art.

A million thanks to Michelle, and if anyone else wants to draw this kind of stuff, I get a goofy grin no matter what your skill level is. Please, share it with me.

ANOTHER OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

WE HAVE ANOTHER OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!eleven!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Overkill, much?
Oh well, this is exciting.

School officially ends for me this Thursday. As you might well have noticed, school is my primary cause of inability-to-post-comics. Since it will be out of the way, I will have more time to devote to EV.

Therefore, I feel no reservation in telling you that from now on, EV will update every Monday and Friday.

Isn't it awesome!?
Tell your friends, you now get twice your recommended weekly dosage of EV! Get excited, because we're in for a ride!

Big announcement coming later tonight. Here it is.
Plus, there were fun happenings on Saturday.
~Riley

Fun day!

As you may or may not have noticed, I am fond of the web comic series Furry Experience. It takes place at the university I attend, is very well-made, and aligns pretty well with my taste in humor. Plus, I had the chance not too long ago to meet the artist with some friends of mine and play card games.

Well, since I follow the series, I became aware that the artist was going to host a live stream, wherein she would draw sketches of characters submitted by her fans, as practice for an upcoming event she's participating in. I was lucky enough to win the seventh lottery (thanks to a technical glitch which I may or may not have been responsible for), and she drew Fenic! :3
The sketch I provided
Her drawing, which made me laugh very hard
The live stream was very fun, and I got to meet some really cool people. (Shoutout to said people if you're reading this! I was Squeevee) If you haven't already looked at Furry Experience, I recommend it.

Anyway, I'm not nearly as handy with the pen as this artist was, so today's comic is not quite ready yet. I'll post it later tonight, though. And, I've got some other exciting news to go along with it.

See you then!
