She was just a regular, unwanted kid, until she was lucky enough to get a job under the best magician in the world! Unfortunately for her, her new boss is a self absorbed sociopath.
Updates are currently Monday, with some sporadic mid-week updates if I have time!
Obviously for such an important post, I had to use Quality Art (tm)
ALRIGHHHT GLOOMVERSE FANS! I have some amazing news!
For many fans, you might not know what's been going on in my life lately. Long story short, I was doing fancomics for the Undertale fandom-- and my life exploded for the last year with a mass of new followers and readers, and I've been stumbling through, learning how to make art into my full time career. I've been prepping books for publication (Gloomverse included) traveling around the country and selling merchandise at cons, and finishing up Aftertale, my Undertale fancomic that originally drew people to me.
Long story short, its been very insane.
But- the comic had just finished, over 400 pages of fan content, and with that, I am returning back to original work. Primarily? GLOOMVERSE. WA BAM.
You know how this comic has been having very few updates? Well now? It's gonna have THREE PER WEEK. I'm thinking Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Is that good? Probably? I might change things up if it doesn't work out for me.
But yes, art and comic making has become my full time profession, and I'm putting my heart and soul into it to try and make this work. SO? First off, some important new links!
I tend to livestream new pages, mostly to Patrons, but I also do public streams every now and then. If you wanna get to know me and check out some WIP pages? Please subscribe to my Picarto channel, and have fun! They're hectic, and a lot of people show up, but its a blast!
My Patreon website, of which my primary income now comes from, will follow this comment. This is how I will be able to update so often, and if you like tons of updates, I couldn't suggest my Patreon more! Not only that, you get advanced pages, you get private streams just for patrons, AND? A private store, currently in the works, exclusive for Patrons!
And? Updates about the future? I've been working on Gloomverse books, and Gloomverse merch for the public as well! Along with a future work I'm excited to begin. This isn't linked publicly yet until the patron store is finalized, but that is IN THE WORKS, and eventually you're going to be able to get Gloomverse in print! It will be a little pricey, 40 dollars per volume (This is because I'm using a print-by-demand site, its the only way to make some profit! Which- is important for eating, yes.) BUT, Patrons can get books early at discounted price- and the higher the tier, the bigger discount you can get! I think. The store I'm editing I'm pretty sure can do this?
This is all a time consuming, learning experience.
But yes!! I hope you're EXCITED, Gloomverse fans, because its coming back strong!! Expect an update soon!
EDIT: RIGHT, one final link! I'm very active on my Tumblr account, and its all fun positive stuff, I aint doin no drama. If you wanna get to know me there? That's a great way to do it too! Please check me out over there!
Don't get me wrong, I work really really hard, and sometimes a burn out gets close. What I've been doing, is prepping a ton of pages ALL at once, and then giving myself long breaks in between where I don't work on them. I also mix up drawing pages with other fun stuff, so far, even though I'm working very hard, none of it has burned me out.
It is definitely still my vocation- though sometimes it almost becomes a job? But not for a single second could I think of something else I'd want to do. As long as I get paid enough to pay bills, and eat, I can guarantee I'll keep things going. <3 And its because I love it, not because I'm pressured.
This is the only thing I'd ever want to do with my life, and its my absolute passion.
Though to be honest, anymore then 3 pages per week would definitely start to burn me out, this stuff takes a lot of time!
I'm so happy! I started reading the comic about a week or so ago and just recently finished the first read! Now I get to read more! I'm so excited and looking forward to following the story now! Please don't overload yourself either! Thank you so much for an awesome comic!
WHOOOOOOOP I'M EXCITED :D
Be sure not to work too hard though, CQ. Just so you know, you'll never loose this fan even if you drop the comic entirly. Don't kill yourself over it. Or loose a leg. Good luck and pace yourself!
This is awesome!
This sounds amazing CQ, i'll admit i originally found GV through your Errortale comic but i've become a huge fan in the meantime. Any idea when the amazing new 3 update a week schedule is gonna start? :D
I was really worried, but you melted my fears and replaced them with excitement!! Glad to hear that things are going so well for you in the comics sector, and of course I'm glad to hear that this will update on a schedule~ I wish you the best of luck! <3
Excessive overanalysis activate!
Glad to hear its coming back strong, I'm going to love overanalyzing each page for stuff. I'll start here. Its obvious that Harold and the lemonhead (lemonkid?) got infected with the remnants of Cake Girl's personality.
THIS IS AMAZING NEWS!
I'd love to buy some of the printed books you have, but I'm an Indonesian, and I don't really know how to buy merch and stuffs from outside my country ._.
I wish there was some way for me to buy it though
Bit late to the party, but I have to say, this comic has gotten me hooked the fastest out of any of the comics that I've read (and that's saying a lot; I've read many [And in all honesty, I made this account basically just to say hi and follow better]) so hearing that there will be /more/ updates is awesome. Keep doing what you're doing, try not to go insane, etc. And. Etc.
EDIT: Oh, and nice work on finishing Aftertale. Good ending to a good strip.
I'm so HAPPY that Gloomverse is coming back
I remember the first day falling into this fandom.
I was sick so I didnt go to school, but I'm just too bored lying on bed doing absolutely nothing!
Then I was thinking"Hey now I got time to read that comic called Gloomverse!".
And I've became a shitty Gloomverse fan since that day.
It only took me the whole morning to the newest page(#603)
I couldn't stop reading it although my sore throat was killing me.
