CEL'S IMPORTANT NEWS!!!

“Time to rest now and to finish the show. And become the music - one with Alpenglow.”
-Nightwish, Alpenglow


Hey everyone,
As you’ve probably guessed, I’m gonna end this comic before it stagnates.
I feel really bad for just abandoning everyone for the last, what 6 months? So I’m really sorry about that.

You’ll probably see me around every-so-often but I won’t be uploading anything: I dug myself a really deep hole with this comic; The artwork takes forever due to its multiple steps, and it sorta sucked the fun out of everything. Once again, sorry for avoiding SmackJeeves like Ebola.

I’ve drawn up the last three pages of ANOVS and I will release them once a week starting this Saturday (for old times sake). But I won’t be returning to this comic, and even if I was a masochist and rebooted it, it wouldn’t resemble its current form whatsoever. Hopefully the conclusion is at least better than nothing. ^^;

On the plus side though, I have all of my original pages and stuff, so if you guys are interested in having them then PM me or leave a comment below stating which ones you’re interested in and I’ll mail them to you (for FREE (It’s the least I could do)). I dunno it’s just something I thought would be nice. I’ll send everything out by October 1st, so after this date you won’t be able to ask for additional pages. I’ll keep a list of all of the pages left below SO CHECK IT OUT! :)

Please note beforehand that I WILL NEED your home address (or a PO Box), however this DOESN’T mean that you need to give me your real name. I’ll just use your username/nickname.

I had a great time while it lasted,
thanks everyone,
-Cel

P.S.
Anyone who hasn’t heard the song that I quoted can hear it here, as on YouTube there are only altered versions:

One day I shall return!

"Finally your number came up" - Nightwish, Élan

So yeah sorry about the wait, but things are kinda hectic at uni right now, I am working on the next page but it's hard finding the time when I have a billion other things to do.

One of those things was creating a JSL cover for the Nightwish song Élan. Which you can find here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tybDpdenGQQ

Anyway it payed of because I was one of the 3 out of 238 lucky winners! :D

I have a lot planned in the summer as well, but I will have a lot more time to work on this comic then.

So, until next time: Cheers!

NEXT UPDATE ...ER...UPDATE!

I hate to leave people hanging so, I'll just say a few things;

I've done the preliminary sketches. Just need to paint and ink it.

I have a presentation to do for Uni, extra points for originality, so I'm gonna do a comic strip... about English Grammar...FUN!

Learning three language is hard: don't do it.

Woah! Is that the time!? I don't even have three days left!
Sorry, gotta save Termina, brb!

THE ISLAND

"I really can't be bothered to add quotes in with the news posts" -Cel

I'm going away for a bit...

Well, the 16th 'till the 22nd of January.

I'm going to be staying on the remote Isle of Arran, and the cottage doesn't have an internet connection. I may get another page up before then, but then again this is ME we're talking about.

Also, my next semester starts on the 3rd of February. But I'm sorta used to uni now so there shouldn't be a multi-month hiatus.

UPDATE SCHEDULE (or lack thereof)

“Kolik jazyků znáš, tolikrát jsi člověkem” –Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk
(The more languages you know, the more you are human)

So, yeah. I won't be able to update weekly for a while. We'll see if things settle down. But, there are a number of factors which mean that this comic will update SPORADICALLY AT BEST;

1)UNIVERSITY - It should be no surprise to anybody, but Uni will eat your time more than a TVtropes binge! What with having to take the train every morning and night, AND having to put more than 8 HOURS of private study into each module...THAT'S 32 HOURS A WEEK! Not only is there compulsory study, but there's also; clubs, special lectures, and volunteer work to attend as well!

2)LANGUAGES - I'm (attempting) learning two languages! The first is Japanese. Which, I'm sure some of you, reading the comic, may have suspected. I have been casually trying to grasp it since around November last year, but I only started learning (and still am, damn it!) the kanji (logographic Chinese characters) around the beginning of June; so I'm a ways off being remotely functional.

The second language I only started two days ago, so I can't even construct a sentence. This language is Ukrainian, which is one of the most beautiful sounding languages I've ever heard in my life. Later on, things could get more hectic, 'cause next year I plan on taking German!

3)AUTUMN - For some strange reason I always become ill at this time of year. I'm, like, the opposite of hay-fever sufferers. And at the moment, I feel like crap. And as much as I love you guys, and I love drawing...yeah, no.

So, this is my excuse; I need to get used to uni and language learning, before I know how much time, a week, I can afford to spend on comic creation. And bearing in mind that, on average, it takes 7+ hours of solid work to create a page... It could take some time.

Sorry.

NAME CHANGE

"Don't make me quote Shakespeare" -Tanya Higgins, The Webcomic Beacon Ep. 106

From now on, "A Nuzlocke of Virdian Shades" shall be known as "A Nuzlocke of Viridian Shades".

The URL is also now viridianshades.smackjeeves.com (instead of virdianshades.smackjeeves.com)

Some people may not have even noticed the pun in the title of my comic. But to be honest it is/was pretty stupid, plus changing to "Viridian" makes it easier for people to find (instead of searching for a misspelled word!)

So over the next few days/weeks I will be correcting banners and title pages and, well, every other page. So that'll be boring. It's a good job uni doesn't start until the 24th...

Just to let you know.

-Cel
