Hey everyone! Here is an ultra, super, mega, uber update on all things Ava's Demon!!!
The books are finished and being printed, I received some proofs and have been working with the printers to get them perfect. More updates will come when more stuff comes in. By the time we have everything in our hands, I'll be able to give an ETA on how long it'll take us to ship stuff to you. I don't have exact ETAs right now because I don't want to make any promises and then have them fall through.
The second book does not have as much making-of in it as I wanted it to have, I ran out of page space. The book itself is about 440 pages altogether, most of it being the comic (it's a whole lot of book). If I release more sketchbook and making-of stuff in a pdf, I will give it to all the backers for free, if not it will be in the next book (Odin's book).
I have also been working on the storyboards for Studio Yotta. As you may or may not remember, the final goal of the kickstarter was a fully animated short for the comic itself, I'm basically key animating a lot of it and then handing that off to Yotta. The animation will come out as an update for the comic next year.
So where have I been?? Well this year has been extra busy, not only did I move from one apartment to another, I also got married, celebrated a new neice, got some bullies off my back, built a new computer to replace the brick I work on, and all on top of making the two books and all the art that will come with it. I've been super busy, basically. It's been hectic, to say the least.
Updates should be coming back around January, I never wanted to take this much time away from updating because dang, I would really like to get the story rolling, but I can only do so many things at once. I think I might take a break from conventions just to dedicate all my time to making the comic as much as possible. If I do some how make it to a convention I will always announce it in the news section of the site.
If you missed the kickstarter and would like anything, we will be doing pre-orders in the future for both books and merch. Thanks again for all your patience and support!!
