Hello! The exercise here was to try to draw Benedict and Florian in a different style. I don’t think I really captured it, but I was trying to draw in Furudate’s style from Haikyuu!! Which is my favorite series right now (as you may have noticed if you’ve seen my tumblr orz).
We’re now at the sketching stage with the next chapter. I’ve found that I’m more efficient if I work on a whole scene at once instead of page-by-page. Still not quite sure when we’ll start posting the chapter, so none of the pages are complete but we are working on it! One stumbling block has been outfits. By testing on a few pages I’ve found my first idea for Benedict did not read clearly enough. Here’s the current contender:
Mission 6 Status Update
Partially Drawn: 5/39
Hello friends! Apologies for the radio silence, dayjobs got the better of us for a while…and then we took a lil’ trip to Tokyo where we succumbed to the siren song of all the doujinshi*. In case you need hard evidence…
* mostly Haikyuu!!, though we’ve got some Free! reppin’
Thanks to the lovely people at PacSet Tours for putting together the fujoshi dream trip (along with all the awesome new people we met!)–as you can tell, we managed to do quite a bit of “research” that should serve us well for upcoming chapters ;) ;) ;)
In the meanwhile. we’ve been working on mission 6–unfortunately we were a little bit optimistic in our original airdate, so we’ll just post it when it’s ready. That should be sooner than later (read: this summer), but since we’re just now recovering from our jetlag, we don’t have a hard date. But you can always see new sketches and such over at Ocicatsy’s tumblr, since it’s updated fairly regularly with actual content (the Wensleydale tumblr is uh, mostly just my reblogs ^^;;;).
Thanks for your patience, guys! We’re always happy to know that people are enjoying the comic! STAY TUNED!
Okay! Here we are, this update’s a little later. Spent the weekend getting ready for Smudge and didn’t quite have it ready Sunday night. Speaking of which, Wensleydale and I are tabling at Smudge Expo on Saturday, 3/14 in Arlington, VA as Team KK! You can clickthrough to our Team KK tumblr there to see a preview of some of our zines. And we’ll probably have a few copies of Spacejinx behind the table.
Here’s Edmund immediately after the events of Mission 5, and after finishing off the rest of the liquor. He’s probably trying not to think about anything.
Also! The Purity Anthology Kickstarter is still running! And the folks at Purity just posted this very nice artist spotlight on us. aaaa we feel so honored to be a part of this!
Hello all! We will be tabling at Yaoicon this year! XD It’s September 12-14 in San Francisco, and we’ll have Spacejinx books as well as our minicomics. This’ll be our second time tabling, I’m very excited. Hope to meet some of you there!
Hi guys! If you’ve wanted to read Spacejinx on ~paper~, we now have a store to sell our comics! Print versions of Spacejinx, Ruffled Feathers, Winter in Paris (formerly 1-2-3 on the site), along with never-before-posted Sailors & Seamonsters, A Wolf in the Fold (i.e., the Teen Wolf zine), and the (infamous?) Nic Cage Fun & Activity Book!
