Part 2: Pg 207

Two new pages this update, starting HERE!

The boys settle in for a night of sleep work on round two in the wee hours of the morning, while the rest of the Academy grounds are quiet and calm…

Comment Section News

SO.

The comment system I use for EA has decided to turn on ads within the comment section itself, and wants me to pay a monthly fee to turn them off again. I don’t normally balk when a business wants to earn money off their service, but 1) they were a free plugin for years and only recently moved to this model, 2) they had originally said small non-commercial sites like mine wouldn’t be subject to ads, but here we are, and 3) I can’t even curate what ads would run.

The ads are text-only and are only appearing at the very bottom of the comments section as that was the least intrusive option they let you pick, but I’m still incredibly annoyed. I don’t run any ads on my site and if I ever chose to, it certainly wouldn’t be the shitty click-bait spam garbage they’re currently showing.  ヾ( ・`⌓´・)ノ゙

I’m looking at other options for comment systems, but trying to find ones that are widely used, updated regularly, and allow for import of existing comments is proving to be difficult, which is why a lot of sites use this system to begin with. Currently, I use an adblocker extension and it blocks all their ads. I whitelist comic sites so the artist will earn revenue, but those are generally ads that they want to run and have pre-approved.

In my case, I sure didn’t ask for and don’t approve of the crappy ads being served up at the bottom of the comments section of my site, so please, use an adblocker when you visit so you don’t have to lay eyes on them! ᕙ(⇀‸↼‶)ᕗ The only trash I want you seeing here is the sweaty nude kind I draw, thanks!

News and Updates!

It’s been a really long time since I’ve made a blog post, let’s have an update on what’s going on lately!

★Health Update★ My wrist/arm is steadily improving! I’ve got a three times a day routine of stretching/exercises to keep things moving, and can usually draw for a few hours before I need to stop. I’m very mindful of what’s manageable and what’s too far, and I’ve got my grip strength back now! This isn’t to say things are perfect, there are some days everything is aching from the day job and I need the night off, but its a vast improvement over just a few months back. Managing a RSI like this is a careful balancing act of rest/work and I’m certainly not the only artist dealing with arm pain, but I’m glad I’ve found a routine that seems to be working out. Thank you all for the well wishes you’ve sent in the meantime! (°◡°♡)

★What’s Cooking in the Patreon★ There’s now three complete Alternate Universe sketch comics over on the $1 tier of Patreon, and twenty some Basement tier sketches/mini comics waiting for you if you’d like to support me there! There’s a brand new Alternate Universe comic that just started featuring rowdy lust demons wreaking havoc at the Academy, so now’s a good time to jump in. ╭( ・ㅂ・)و   If you’re not into Patreon but still want to support the comic, sharing the URL with friends, reblogging update posts on Tumblr, or RTing updates from Twitter are all awesome ways to help!

★Art Gallery Additions★ There’s a lot of new sketches in the gallery if you haven’t checked in a while, including a section for commissioned/fan art of EA characters! There’s so many Al faces in there, it’s so beautiful. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

★Livestreams★ I’ve been trying to do more frequent livestreams if that’s a thing you like, you can come chat with me and watch some art being made (if I’m working on NSFW pages you’ll be given notice) it’s a real good time!

We’re closing in on the end of Part 2 in the comic, and in Part 3 things amp up in new ways and I’m just so excited to tell this story to you guys I’m practically vibrating when I sit down to draw, haha! Hope everyone out there is doing well; thank you as always for hanging out with me and these buff demons and blushing exorcists!

Update: On the mend!

Hello readers! It occurred to me that I haven’t updated in a bit and I thought maybe you’d like to know what’s up: I’m doing a lot better! I had inadvertently made my right arm worse before I knew I had tendinitis, then overworked my left arm trying to compensate, then I was essentially left sitting on the couch with both arms wrapped up in ice and wrist splints for two and a half weeks going stir crazy thinking about how much I wanted to draw, haha. I think I should be good to go this weekend to start working on pages again – though I’m know I’m going to have to take it easy until I feel confident I’m not going to re-aggravate anything. I will do my best to deliver you a new page as soon as I can get it done! It might be slow going for a while but please bear with me, and thanks for your patience. 🙂

FYI!

Soooooo just a heads up, folks! I hurt my wrist last week and haven’t been able to work on any pages because of it. Since I’ve never injured my wrist before, I’m heeding the advice of my fellow artists who gave me plenty of ominous warnings that trying to work through wrist pain wasn’t a good idea and would extend the healing process. Unfortunately, that means I’m really behind in my work on both Patreon and the comic, but I really don’t want to make it worse by trying to draw when I should be resting it.

Might have one page ready by Saturday, but I’ll have to see how it goes! :\

Recap Comic 2

I did a goofy “recap” comic when EA first started way back in the day (it’s been 2 years? holy heck) and I did another one recently. Click HERE to see the full comic! 🙂
