Page for September 17, 2014:
And we're back. Sorry about the long hiatus, but August is almost always a busy month for me, and I wanted a good chance to get a decent amount of pages of chapter 5 done in advance of resuming, since I'm going back to a twice-a-week schedule again. Anyways, here we are!
It's come to my attention that very little of this comic has taken place outside so far; it's mostly been inside buildings or spacecraft. So, I'm not as well practised in doing outdoor scenes as I'd like, and previous examples haven't been spectacular, honestly. But I must say, I'm really pleased with how panel 2 turned out on this page. Still, most of this chapter will also be taking place inside artificial environments, although there will be more outdoor scenes than in previous chapters.
I've continued the experiment in colouring that began in chapter 4 and, I must say, I'm satisfied with the results. It allows me to include textures that I can apply via SketchUp, which is why the hangar has a tiled floor in proper perspective. I don't have the skill in drawing perspective to pull that off by hand (nor indeed to really draw any inorganic structures, for that matter, which is why I use SketchUp at all). There were some tricky moments, however, like drawing the equipment laid out in front of the quartermaster consistently, but it's all practice, ne?

And we're back! I wasn't completely sure if I was going to bring the comic off hiatus on schedule or not, but I decided in the end to do so. However, I have also decided that a biweekly update schedule is just too much to handle right now. So, as of now, Eon's world 2.0 will be updated weekly, every Saturday. Yes, I know this means that stories will progress more slowly, but it's easier for me to stay on top of regular updates without the need for periodic hiatuses this way. If I manage to pick up speed to the point that I feel I can do updates twice a week again, I may go back to that, but not right now.

So it's been two years and a bit since the last page of Eon's World (#843) went online with the announcement that I would be unable to continue the comic for a little while. I didn't expect it to be this long originally, so I apologise for leaving things hanging the way they did (though, at least I didn't you all on a cliff hanger). I wouldn't be at all surprised if readers have stopped expecting the story to continue, because I'd stopped expecting it to myself for a while. I first got round to writing a script for the new format in December 2011, and it was only this February that I actually managed to force myself to start working on bringing that script to life.
I had spent a lot of time doing prep work during the long hiatus and I kept telling myself that I wasn't ready yet. But, in the end, I realised that I could keep doing prep work indefinitely, and the comic itself would never materialise=, so I just had to knuckle down and do it. And I did. And now it's time to share it with the world (well, with the internet).
Updates will be at their usual times (Wednesdays and Saturdays), ideally early in the day (around midnight, GMT, where possible). If you're worried about the old comics archive, don't be. To save server space, I'm migrating all 843 pages to deviantART, where you'll still be able to see them. But those pages have scarily enormous file sizes, so it will save a lot of space here to move them. If you're not already watching me on deviantART, please do so! You'll get to see all kinds of things I've been working on for the comic, including so sneak previews of various ships and such.
The forum is still where it used to be, so if you want to discuss the comic and the various issues surrounding it, feel free to join, but please remember to be civil.
