*crawls out of the toxic depths of sickness*

Just like... uck, that was a terrible however long that was. Two weeks? It's been two solid weeks since the last proper update? Is anyone still reading this comic? Was anyone ever reading this comic?

*draws breath*

All right. This isn't the longest I've ever gone without an update for a comic, and I never wanted to go without an update. I was just completely unable to do anything but lie around in immense pain. I also watched a lot of cartoons. I have learned things, and I intend to use them.

My style is still not really a style at all. My human figures are sometimes all right, but for the most part, I am not yet very good at them because I'm so uncomfortable with them. I know I don't want to strive for super-realism, but I don't want to end up with something like "Ziggy" or "Peanuts" either. Something like Bruce Timm's DCAU designs, maybe. I think there's going to be some visual changes to this comic soon. Not to mention the backgrounds. Those have always stymied me...

I also need to get a better grasp on these stupid Manga Studio brushes. I've been using a .25mm Kabura brush for the major lines, with a .12mm Maru brush for the minor lines. I'm not sure it's working.

Anyway, if you've read all this, thanks. It's been a lot of disjointed decision-making.

I'm really sorry about this, but no new comic today. I haven't been able to eat in about a week and it's getting to me.

I'm still here, and I'm interested in where we go next.
