Six Pack will not be updating anymore. Neither will Pimo Is Awesome. Until I don't know when, maybe never.

Indefinite hiatus/finished/whatever.

If you DON'T check the comics obsessively every day and if you DON'T follow my Twitter, you'll see that there are new pages up for both Six Pack of Otters and Pimo Is Awesome.



Still not sure if we're going back to weekly or bi-weekly yet for either comic... I've got quite a buffer built back up for Six Pack (FINALLY YAY) but I'm screwing with the scriptwork some more to get the ending to flow nicer than it does already and I don't want to end up getting myself in trouble again where I have to re-write and re-draw a bunch of stuff again! Getting closer though!

I recommend you start here, at this point at the end of chapter 9. You can skip the short if you'd like and just jump in again at chapter 10. You'll see a few minor art changes in chapter 10 but the switch to the storyline is in there. Chapter 11 is where I re-did a lot of art on a lot of pages.

Just trust me and stick with it. You might think "this is totally not worth all that time off" but it is. =>

Enjoy Keahi's new look, by the way.

Ahhh, and I've even figured out how to get the page looking proper again! Please ignore all the broken links in the sidebar. I'm still fixing things! Slowly but surely, guys! That issue is fixed too now! Hurray!

Hey guys! If you visit http://www.sixpackofotters.com these days, you'll see that all of the pages are now re-named with their titles again instead of just numbered. Some of the page names have changed because internet archive didn't have anything more recent than 2007 and I couldn't remember that much stuff. I also need to go and re-name the existing nameless chapters.

Tonight I will be uploading the pages with new, updated art and the few pages with storyline changes. I will post here with the page where I recommend you start over when that is done.

And then in a few more days, I will resume updating.
No update schedule just yet, we are still probably "sporadic" while I get stuff figured out.

Sorry guys. As of right now I still don't know how to get in to my site and update the existing pages, let alone post new ones.
I don't know what else to tell you.

Hello everybody!
Last night I finished up all the work I had to do to chapter 11. Next up is finishing some adjustments to chapter 10; hopefully I will be able to get that done over the weekend.

I would say a re-launch is tentative for Monday, but I actually don't even know how to get into my new website to tinker with things... hopefully I will be able to find out, get in, do some cosmetic adjustments (like renaming all the pages) and updating the older pages with the newer versions, then will be able to go ahead with the story. If I can't figure out how to get in to my site, it will take longer.

Once we re-launch, I recommend starting back at the beginning of Chapter 10 (though there is some corrected artwork in chapter 9, too.) and re-reading it and Chapter 11 through again, because there are not only artwork changes, but a few adjustments as far as the story goes. They might seem minor to you and you might think the extended break isn't worth the switch, but there is a reason I made the change. The old script will never see the light of day so you'll probably never realize why it was a necessary change, but it was something I had to do before I could move forward.

With that said, we'll be pretty much jumping right in with both feet. I said a while back that the party scene was sort of the climax of the story... it's the catalyst that's about to set off a number of things. Stuff will start to move fast and furious for almost everybody at this point as we rapidly draw towards out conclusion.
Yes, after all this wait, you're basically just going to get the final few chapters. Maybe a little bit disappointing, but the story has always had a definite end, and we're drawing closer.

Soon. I promise.

PIA updates will also start up again very soon (that website isn't even set back up, but until then I have posted the archives to my VCL gallery.

You will now find that the site is back up; very barebones but it is back up so may read the archives again!

We has NEW FORUMS [Jun. 21st, 2009|06:23 pm]

We have NEW FORUMS set up now. You'll have to go create a new account and all the old posts from the last phpbb are just plain gone (sorry, folks.)

You'll see the forum is now setup and has boards for several different comics. If you want to skip that and just bookmark the Six Pack forum, it's here. The Pimo is Awesome forum is here. And yes, I'll be direct-linking to those pages on the website once we are back up and running, so no, you won't have to look down a list to find the forum for my comics if you don't want to.

Everything else is still down right now. We'll get to it. => Thanks for your continued patience, folks.

Hey guys!
Yes, the site is down. Don't panic, I'm not killing the comic or anything. Just some downtime on the hosting end. You aren't missing any updates, anyway, because I am severely busy dealing with finishing my last college course and getting everything ready for Anthrocon. Right now I can guarantee having Six Pack chapter 3 available; I am possibly going to have the first chapter of Pimo Is Awesome (yes, that means pages that aren't uploaded to the site would be in the print comic) and maybe chapter 4 of Six Pack as well, but right now I'm only counting on getting ONE comic finished and ready to go by then. It's coming up fast and I'm swamped, so we'll just have to see.

So yeah, TL;DR is I know it's down. Don't fret. We're still on hiatus right now anyway so you aren't missing a darn thing. It'll be up again at some point.

I haven't really been feeling the comic lately, so I've been really slack on working on the updates. I think I've mentioned before that my policy is "If you're not into it, don't force it" - I don't want it to become something I loathe, a chore, where it's not fun anymore. I'm really high stress right now and that's part of it, but there are other factors too.

Occasionally I go back and re-read my original story to get excited about things again. The process of developing this story went like this: I wrote a story for National Novel Writer's Month, and later adapted it to a script, which is what I worked off to draw up the pages. Well, in re-reading my original story, I found something(s) that I changed for the script. I know WHY I changed it at the time, but looking back on it now, I'm not happy with the change. And when I was inking and lettering that part of the story, I kept thinking "This isn't right... I'm pretty sure this isn't how I had it... Really? Is that really right?" But that was what my script said, so I went ahead and put it in.
But I should have listened to my instincts, because honestly, I had it right the first time - the way it was in my original story.

So after some thinking, and a lot of mucking around staring at the next several pages without feeling any joy in working on them, I decided to go back and re-work my script a little and have to re-draw several pages. The changes I plan to make DO affect pages that are already uploaded, so I'll have to work backwards on a few things. It's not a major change to what's already up, but it is a change I want to make before I think I'm going to feel better about moving forward.

Therefore we're on a bit of a hiatus - changed old pages will be posted here, and when I'm ready to move ahead I'll make another note here. I don't know how long it will be.

I'm still having fun with Pimo Is Awesome, but I feel guilty about working on it when I haven't updated Six Pack... so I'm going to actually give myself permission to work on that and NOT Six Pack during this little hiatus. I'll try for updates on Wednesdays.
The good news is that in a few months I'll be pretty much done with school, and uh, well, who knows what will happen then!
