Chapter 48: Electrolytic Eclipse
before we can go forward, we have to take a few steps back.
the rain in this chapter really kicked my butt and slowed down the production by several days
but it's done. I do however like the finished results of the chapter page. 
the rain there, made me happy.

thanks for reading! hope you enjoy!

Goblyn chapter 48 preview


SO MOOOOOCH RAAAAAAIN.

no seriously, there are six pages out of ten with rain sequences in them. I'm sloshing around in rain drops and wet shirts and mud puddles and OH MAH GOSH THE MUD!
but, I've finally moved on to the lettering stage of the comic and now I'm entering the anxious place where I'm worried about if people are going to like the chapter. if I did a good job or if all the hours of red eyed grogginess come through in the art and story.

I have a place I want to get to and like so many of us I'm just always hoping that what I put down on the page is helping bring people reading it to that place without getting lost in the comics darkness.

I'm happy with this chapter, I just wish I could do more in it. tell more story. more frequently. still adjusting to the new apartment and getting back on track with my comics making schedule and this new slightly uncomfortable work space.
yay.
well, back to lettering.

speedart video of the November thank you wallpaper
I love love LOVED making this wallpaper. 
it's cold outside now and it got me thinking about doing some winter/snow themed art. Eustro seems a really good match for that. lots of snow covered lands in that world.

Chapter 47: Smelted Sundown
another chapter finished! went through a couple revisions with this one and even ended up stalled at the ending. at one point I had thumb nailed six different endings I didn't like any of them. this is the one that won me over in the end. not too much exposition but juuuust enough set up and a little sliver of mystery.
thanks for reading! hope you enjoy!

Don't worry... it'll make more sense soon.
let me know if this chapter loads slow, I did something a little different to it and I don't know how it ultimately will affect it.
