New Page - remake

Hello, You'll probably be notified of a new page and see nothing new - well it's either an addition in the "characters" section or, in this case, a remake of a page. More specifically, page 56. http://ournamewasmaja.thewebcomic.com/comics/2462530/56-remake/

So yeah that's about it

Finished Organising Chapters

As of today I finished writing the story, all that's left is to finish working the storyboards and the comic itself!!

There will be a total of 15 chapters + an extra (so something like 4 chapters +1 left!).

I finished art school for the year, and since I've gotten into the habit on working on art every tuesday and thursday afternoon, I'll do my best to keep that habit during the summer to work on my comic, so if everything goes well, I might even be able to finish it by the end of the summer (though that might be a bit naive... we'll see).

Wish me luck, and I hope you enjoy!

brace for it

I just finished storyboards for chapter 9... this is going to be intense. I almost cried drawing them. Expect page 1 soon enough

Spotlight Recommendation?

I know I don't really have any "fans", but if I do, I hope they read it.
I recently learned that to enter among the comics in the "spotlight" section of Smackjeeves it needs to be recommended here: http://smackjeeves.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=22

My comic fits into all the requirements, but it's frowned upon when the author itself recommends it.
Can someone of you guys do it, please? My comic would get more attention, which would motivate me to work more for sure (I have a Stakanovich problem in which I do everything I can to live up to expectations so sadly I'm pretty sure that's what would happen...)

Even if you don't do it, I appreciate you for reading my comic. Thank you very much!

Got new PC ^^'

I got the new PC I was itching for after my previous one broke, though I had to use emergency funds for it... (smart move or not? I can't tell)

So I can finally continue Maja again! (and gosh I've been wanting to continue it so badly in the last few days)

Only problem is I can't transfer licenses from one PC to another (sai got smart), so I have to buy Sai's license again, which means having to spend more money and possibly having to wait more (ugh)...

At least I have my games now

My Computer Broke!!!

OKOOKOKOKOKOKK Calm down me jesus Nina chill

my laptop's battery has been broken for years and it only works if attached to the charger, but my charger recently developed false contact!
It turns off randomly almost and it drives me crazy. I tried working on a new page and saving every 30 seconds but at one point when it turned off it was so abrupt that it corrupted the file and my work was lost!

I won't be able to make any new content until I buy a new charger, but I'm not sure when that will be because with work, school, and a house to take care of I barely have time at all and the part of the charger that developed false contact is the more expensive bit. It might take me a couple days, might take me a week or a month. I can't even play videogames anymore it's terrible.

I hope I can continue Maja as soon as I can.

Even MORE work....

As some of you may have noticed, updates are getting scarce (like one page every 2 weeks or so) and I'm really, really sorry about that, but despite working so much already AND having school (twice a week) more and more work keeps on coming in. Soon enough I'll have to cut 1cm cubes or marble for a 400 square meter floor, which is insanely massive so I'll have to hire people and I'll be busier than ever for God knows how long. I'll try to keep this comic going on. According to calculations and organisation of the story it should end in 13 chapters, which would make a total of 7 chapters left! Plus extra chapters I intend on doing, such as a bit more material on Ash and Erik, like their lives when they were alive or sth like that.

Anyway yeah, I cannot promise regular updates, but I'll do what I can. Though the comic is a hobby of mine, I do consider it kind of like work, and I do need rest and relax time that I barely have enough of ;A;

Work, extra shifts

My (now ex) coworker had to quit her job because it was bad for her health given she had been doing it (mosaic tiles stuff, including cutting marble which is a heavy task) for about ten years; she and I were the only two there, so now I have to work double (taking care of website, orders, e-mails, AND marble) so instead of working 8:00 - 12:00 five days a week I have to work more hours. Given how I have a social life and normally prefer to see my boyfriend at least two or more times a week and comic book courses that should be starting soon, updates will slow down, I apologise. I will work on it whenever I have time, but between work, few social outings, business trips etc I barely have enough time. I'm sorry about that.

But hey, wish me luck. I certainly want to carry this comic on. I will not rest easy until I know that Anya and Dolores are reunited and I get to see that scene reached and drawn out myself. If I die for whatever reason before that happens, please, PLEASE find an artist (maybe friends of mine whom I trust) that will finish the story. I have a general plot layed out in my head, but if they were to finish it differently it would be ok by me I just want to see them back together.
