December Update (FC!)

Sun Dec 16 04:03:10 2018

Hey folks!

I thought I'd posted this a few days ago but nope. Ohboy.


Most things to talk about right now are FC related. I'll be there, as a dealer, come by, say hi! Hopefully I don't implode from panic attack! It'll be great! I'll have some merch for sale, including prints of the pin ups we've been doing here.

Hopefully I'll have the braincells to focus on the comic once this looming stress is over.


Will be posting the poll soon, and we'll be ending it early too. Hope to get one last print in before the deadline <3


Thank you, again, for your patience!

November Update

Thu Nov 15 15:30:36 2018

Oh.

Oh geez I should have done this a week ago! Okay. Several of you probably already follow my FA/WZL and already know. For those who don't, I'll make it simple:

I was in a 8 year long relationship, living together for the last 5 of those. As of just over 2 weeks ago, I'm not anymore. While the break up itself was rather mutually agreed to be the best idea, it was not at all an easy road to get to. There's been a lot of healing already and a LOT more to come. Problem is for most of the last year I've basically been able to focus on commission streams and generally dealing with a mix of stress and depression making other work take multiple times longer than it should.

Hopefully, that's correcting course. It feels like it is to be honest with you. But it's taking effort and time to get my momentum back.


I appreciate all of you who've stuck through this with me. I'm going to see how my routine settles over the next month or two, then be retooling my Patreon to better match my current output.


I do have a comic to work on, and I hope to be getting you the first few pages very soon.

Another pin up poll will be posted in a bit. Hopefully this time I won't make you wait so long for the results.



Again, thank you. Seriously. Your support through this rough time has helped and I don't know where I'd be without it.

October 2018 Update

Thu Oct 11 20:23:46 2018

Spoooooky Month!

I'll be posting the next poll right after this! Should have got to this like a week ago. I'm sorry. I'm trying folks. 2 new faces, 2 old ones. Excited to draw any and all of them!

Still struggling with other issues but like, hey. I'll let you folks know on updates rather than repeating that from here on.


Attached: More Monstergirls! This Month's pin-up, and a comission I felt was very in theme all said and done.

ADDITIONALLY!

On the comic front: As of now I'm going to shelve Sunhan's. I want to come back to it but I feel I'd want to redo the first pages. We'll be getting back to Kayden and Miseri soon too, but wanted some more time. So we have an new, short 10 page one that I'm working on instead!

The Twine game: Been puttering with it, but mostly doing small edits for now, nothing complete enough for a new WIP release I feel.

September update (I made a twine game!?)

Tue Sep 11 19:12:09 2018

Hey folks!


I know it's been a while since the last update. I'm in the middle of putting together what I want to do with the next chapter of Maiden Kayden, as well as a few other smaller projects.

As for the problems I mentioned before, Iv'e been seeing a therapist. It's... we'll see how much help she is.


Anyway! I've been experimenting with Twine some and I think I've got something worth sharing now. Title is still a placeholder from the initial idea. I'll have a better one by the time the rest of it is done.


Additionally, I'm going to be posting a poll after this. I'd like to start doing large pin ups each month rather than statedly desktops that I tried before.

Please vote for what you'd like this months' to be!

July 2018

Thu Jul 5 23:59:59 2018

So. I've tried to sit down and write this a few times. I'm not sure how to really say this outside of being blunt with it.

The last 2 months have been... heavy. I've been struggling with some anxiety and stress from my personal life, which I'd honestly prefer not to get into in such a public way. It's been an active damper on my ability to sleep, focus, or even motivate art outside of on stream commission work.

As of right now, I'm trying to get an appointment with a therapist to try to deal with it, and I'm hoping I'll be able to get back on track with providing you the comics that you're here for.

I'm not asking for pitty here. I honestly don't want coddling over it. I want to be able to work again without crying with frustration at every panel not being good enough for what I want to be making.


So that being said, this month I'm sorry to say I have nothing for you. If you want to stop being a Patron, I completely understand. I can't promise new work being forth coming. I hold no ill will for people who drop off, and I hope you do not towards me if you do so.


What I want to do is experiment with some different approaches to comic creation. Ideally aiming for 3-8 page short works. Hopefully smaller projects will help me pick up steam and get back to Maiden Kayden.

Sunhan's comic may need to be shelved for some time, I do want to come back to it, I want to do it RIGHT and currently I just can't do that.


Thank you for reading this. I hope you're willing to stay along for this rough part of the ride. I'm pursuing help with my mental health, and very much looking forward to making comics for your enjoyment.


Cheers,

Kos.

Hitting those waves, with Kaiju! Here's this months' pile of art for you :D


I won't lie, it's been a rough and stressful month. I'd... like to get into details but now doesn't really feel right for that. Sorry for the delayed post! This month's a little light on comic, but I give you many other precious creatures as tribute instead!

2018, Patreon, A request for input

Fri Mar 23 16:49:48 2018

Hey folks, we've come a long way since my first comics, some times it feels like no time at all. I want to thank all of you for being involved in this and helping to make the comics viable!


That being said, I want to reevaluate how I handle the comics in general. Notably, I want to change my production flow. I've been considering streaming my comic work, as I seem to get a lot more actual work done while streaming. Would this be something people would be interested in?

Additionally, I've noticed working on singular pages really slows my productivity. Either I'd need a period of not posting pages or moving to a system of sending out a pack (at least 4) pages each month. Or just simply posting pages as they're completed and not sticking purely to the 1 per week guideline.


Regardless of how things end up released, I'd still like to make a WIP folder available at perhaps the 5 or 10 dollar range?



To be blunt, you're the people giving me money. You're the folks helping me not worry about bills while making these comics. Do you have any strong feelings on these topics?

Sunhan the Beach

Fri Mar 23 03:43:49 2018

It's... it's a pun, okay? :D


New comic, this will be a short one and we'll be back to Kayden and Miseri's antics.


We'll be handling this comic a bit differently. I'll be making a text post tomorrow to more clearly go into the changes I'd like to try with Patreon in the future.

I know a fair bit of you are here on the $1 level and not too pleased with how much money Patreon's deciding to make you pay for a stupid change they decided to make. Let's see how this goes together.

Thu Sep 21 20:50:40 2017

Oh fickle creative juices. I just had to remember Bombshell existed and there just weren't any good kisses between these two I could find online.

I had to solve this.


Current page may be a little delayed from this and a commission backlog still needing wading through. Also I kinda went overboard on the page's background, oh gods why do I do this to myself?

ANYWAY, have some art. On a short lunch break before getting back head first into some cute arts.

Another shout out and update on things

Thu Jul 27 21:18:12 2017

Been making a lot of these lately.


Several of you probably know, I've been having some serious life stresses and a recent addition is moving. You ever feel tired of being tired? Getting that lately. Still need to pack more.


Currently doing some planning for comics and trying to decide which of a few ideas I want to push to flesh out right now. I can promise we'll be focusing either on Karkasy (scifi stuff) or more of Kayden (seen in Hot Coffee)

Additionally, I've run across mass back-uploads of comics online, so I'll be using Patreon's emailing distribution rather than direct posting to hopefully avoid some of this. I'd love feedback once that's started if that's prefered or not.


I just want to say thank you, again, to all of you still being Patrons through this rather hectic time in my life. Seriously, thank you.

Cheers,

Kos

What next.

Wed May 31 21:52:37 2017

Turning Pages part 2, done. Whew! Every comic is a new pile of lessons. It seems a good time as any to check in on the community, and all you new Patrons (there's a boatload of you in the last month <3 hello and thank you! )

Firstly, Take a peep upon this here cutie. I've been playing with this style a bit and I'm enjoying it. The next comic or two will be done in this style to try it out, although not monocolor.

Secondly, what the next comics will contain. For those of you unaware of Dwolaites, they're the dragony species my sona Kos is a member of. As well as Tess and now Elise and Olivia. And even those who know that are asking "so what really ARE they though?". I'd like to take a few pages to answer that. Traits and details of the race as I'm now fairly happy to set those details in stone.
And after that? I'll give you some hints: sharks, science, poor labeling practices.

Third, I've retyped this bit a few times. To keep it simple, cancer sucks. I had it in my teens, beat it. Dad has it, it's not the beatable sort. Still has several years left, but having that confirmed today has hit hard. I'm sorry I don't have art for this week's update. I hope you all understand.



So yeah, I'll see you folks next week. Again, thank you.

Kayden is a god damn Gem (+Personal art things)

Wed Apr 5 07:02:25 2017

So you know what.

I fucking love this little snep boy, and I have realised next to Kos, he's one of my oldest lasting characters... and the most that's ever changed about him is hairstyle. Damn. Love this fluffbutt.


On a different note though, I'm curious to know if you folks actually like getting these pieces ahead of time. It's oddly hard to motivate myself to actually make art of my own characters outside of the comics. Linking them to Patreon seems to work though.
In fact, I'll be making a poll about it, so drop comments on that (the next post)


And hey, hey you. Stay awesome, you hear? <3

Style experimentation. Page took less than 4 hours to complete, which is startlingly faster than other comic pages.

Although I still want to stick to colored rather than black and white; I may be using similar shading styles to this in future works!

Life's been shitty this past week or two, and the comic work is surprisingly more time consuming that it should be.

While I couldn't get this week's page together in time, I did pen this.

So enjoy two characters we may just be seeing a lot more of, in a shading style I've been considering switching to for the comics to come (would look horrible changing mid-sex scene!)

[IMPORTANT] Updated Patronage Tiers

Thu Nov 17 00:11:41 2016

New tiers, new comic, news in general.

Thu Nov 10 18:49:12 2016

Bleh.

Just bleh.

These last few weeks. Bleh is all I have.


I'm sorry, deeply, for the delays in getting the next comic out. An initial concept had to be shelved after getting a fair bit of sketching done, and this is after a wave of depression and general frustration.


At this point it is clear I have been overly ambitious with Patreon and will be reworking my teirs to reflect this.

As it stands, with the posting of the cover of the next comic on wednesday the 16th, I'll be changing to the following tiers:1$/month : Comic pages, in the high res format. Your name on a thankyou page

5$/month: Bonus content. Desktops, bonus pages, everything more than comics

20$/month: special thank you section above other names


Thank you, again, all of you. I know times have been rough, but I'm pulling out of the art block I've been wallowing in lately, and am looking forward to the next comic. I hope you all are too.


For now, meet Olivia, we'll be seeing more of this girl in the months to come, trust me :3

The tablet I had recently ordered had been defective, it wouldn't hold pressure sensitivity. I have a new one arriving TOMORROW and the other one has been refunded.This means we have no update this week. There's a handfull of one-page comics for people I'll be doing here, then we're onto the next project. So again, thank you for the patience right now. We'll be on a real schedule again soon!

Well damn (also, free art?)

Mon Sep 5 19:45:06 2016

You're here for the brackets aren't you?

Currently my tablet (and back up) is dead. One too many falls off the desk I guess. I need a better arrangement. Anyway. Digital art is not a thing I can do at present. As Patreon's being slow to actuall proccess payments, and having just moved... funds are a little short for buying a new tablet until that money shows up.

TL;DR: No digital art by me for probably 2-3 days. No comic page this week. I am DEEPLY sorry. The fact I'm delayed one page is bad enough.


ANYWAY, WHY YOU'RE HERE THE FREE ART

https://goo.gl/forms/reELc8W3Hu6LMnfe2

So as I think several of you may know, My spouce and our roommate are moving soon. This Friday even. Horray for that at least, will have some better desk space.That being said the last few weeks have been extremely stressful, and I've been trying to keep the comic coming between packing and other lovely (to put it simply) drama.

Unfortunately this week's page is not complete, I really am extremely sorry to have to say that. I will try to be sure to come up with something this month to make up for this lacking.


Again. I am sorry, I hope you all understand

This was actually only finished this evening due to some rather pressing RL delays instead. Debated posting it tomorrow, but eh. :D

An update to management of my Patreon:

Thu Jul 7 00:56:46 2016

Any of you at $5 or higher level of Patronage may have noticed this recently posted page is in the low resolution posted on other site. There is cause for this.

I have noticed a rather quick turn around of reposting of these pages to third party sites (yes, I bother to check that now and then), and feel I have only one real option around this. Additionally people gain access to the tier they pledge at before actually being charged.


Starting this month all Patron rewards will be released after each monthly charge. Meaning the month's desktop, comic pages and any other Patron specific rewards will be in a single file sent out to those able to receive them.


I am still mulling over the options for how to rearrange my tiers, but I hope that this change is acceptable.


If you wish to have access to a previous month(s)'s rewards, please contact me directly. I will be spending some time tomorrow arranging my current content according and removing completed comic pages from the history


thank you all again,


Kos

Heated Audit: Raffles and update

Wed Jun 22 23:11:25 2016

Sketches are now mostly done, from here it's correcting and tidying up and actual arting!

10 pages coming, winners of slots:

Silidirian

Meshelle

Xalia


There are still two Kobold slots left, this will be put up for YCH style action once those winners have selected options!


There really wasn't much competition for this though, so I think the raffled slots are not the best decision. Just more reason to correct the tiers to better scaling rewards.


I'm sorry I don't really have an image to be showing off right now. But at least sketching is done and the anxiety lately has really fallen off.

Again, thank you folks for your continued support while I'm between projects. I hope to not keep you waiting too long!

An update of news:

Wed Jun 8 21:30:25 2016

First of all,

Thank you for your patience. I realize it has been a while since I've posted a comic page. While I do not want to hide behind this as a shield, I've been experiencing some extreme depression and anxiety issues. Creative progress on just about anything I've been working on has ground to a halt, but I'm trying to get those gears turning again. I will not take offence to people stepping back from being a Patron until work properly resumes again. I do not want a single person feeling I am mooching or similar.


That being said, we've flirted with the 500 point Kobold Sketch goalmultiple times. For the sake of full transparency: there is roughly 200 dollars in pledges that are not being paid. These people are not receiving content, and I have taken to removing pledges that have failed to be charged multiple months in a row.


For the current comic project (and a look at my general approach to comics):

-Currently 7 of 9 (possibly 10) pages are sketched. [Ideally, this should be done by next wednesday. It should have been done for this.]

-Refined sketches will be made of each page once the whole story has been roughed out. [1-2 weeks]

-For this comic there are 5 (possibly a 6th) guest slot. 2 of these will be auctioned (most likely on FA, for sake of active community), but first the rest will be raffled at the $30 monthly group. I admit this raffling feels bias, and I have been considering rearranging how certain tiers are rewarded. While I want to give a special thanks to those willing to support with larger amounts, I do no want to make the 10 and lower Patrons feel left out. Perhaps I'm being too transparent now.


Anyway,

There's the news. Please feel free to comment, share some input if you have any. I want to be sure everyone feels they are getting what they deserve from this arrangement. Would people be interested in hi-res packs of finished works? Specific image sets or similar of specific IP (say, all the waifus of Overwatch for example)? If you're reading this, you're giving me money to draw art for you to see. I'd like to be sure I'm providing what you are wanting.


Thank you for reading this,

Kos

Kobolds in a Komic (part2, for higher reward Patrons)

Thu May 26 14:42:07 2016

For all current $30+ Patrons, I will be holding 2 raffles to be one of the 'lead' Kobolds in the current project. Should you happen to not have a Kobold available, I am very willing to koboldize a character you do have.

Please keep in mind my Kobolds are a fixed species. Scales, no hair, horns, no whites in eyes, short.


Once I have drawn winnners, I'll be asking for additional characters from others to fill in the gaps in kobolds involved.


Thank you for your support, and I look forward to drawing so many scaley butts :3

Kobolds in a Komic

Thu May 26 14:32:31 2016

Turning Pages is done, for now. There will at least be a part 2. If we start getting into part 3 or 4 and it starts getting weird-lore-storytime, someone please shoot me.

Before that is a risk through, we have the current project. Yes. Kobolds. A pile of them in fact! Including some from our own Patrons right here :3


Sketches are underway, about half the pages are at least in roughs. I hope to have more news for you on this in a week or two.


As for this being posted Thursday rather than Wednesday. The last few days have been hectic to say the least, I honestly woke up this morning and didn't even notice yesterday had slipped by.



Love you all, and thank you for your support!

Well, actually an old thing I've not done in a while.


So here we go. First responder here who wishes to get their character in this pose, it's yours!


-Species change? Wings? cool, within reason (dragon, insect? sure! 8 arms, 4 winged godbeing? nope!)

-male/herm/trans/AnythingWithADick? yep yep! Good! I'll be doing later images for non-dicked characters

-Clothing? Sure, we can talk about outfits!


Price? A flat 40 for render/shaded line work.

If a week goes by and no one takes this image, it'll be hitting FA for auctioning.


Consider this a test run! :D

So, I am sorry to say I will not have major content for you folks today. There is still backer specific content for the comic I wish to provide to you, but that will be delayed for now. This last week has been plowing through prepping for heading to FC and general life business.


That being said, There is a future comic that I hope to be starting into drawing or even posting by the end of the month. There are infact 3 comic ideas I'm toying with and may put up a popularity pole to see which gets done first! Things to deal with AFTER the week at FC (or at least, during some quiet time at the con)


I want to just say thank you again to all of you,

Hot Coffee is done. For those of you at a high enough tier for the PDF copy, there is some extra content I want to wedge in for you folks, so that's going to be a little while before they're sent out.

At this point, I wish to thank you just for looking at this.

There are still things to set up before I go live-live with this. Art to draw and announcements to make.

For now, if any fo you are crazy enough to already subscribe to this:
Thank you.
Thank you, you mad mad fools.
