CF is now on break
posted by Virmir on January 24th, 2015 for Comic 336

Unfortunately the arm issues mentioned a while back persist, therefore I've decided to try something I haven't actually tried before-- that is, actually stop drawing for a period longer than a few weeks. I'm not sure how long it will take, but will certainly be at least several months considering I've been struggling with this for seven months so far. I was very much looking forward to bragging about never missing an update a few years down the line after completing Crimson Flag, however this seems the wisest course of action.

If you would like to follow my status or just read the full story on what in blazes is wrong with my arms, I plan on posting updates in this forum thread. Thanks for reading! With luck, hopefully I'll be back in action by the second half of 2015. Then I can just pretend the previous year did not happen!

This week's guest artist is Donnie, who would totally be rich if I could get him to draw more.

One more to go!
Guest Artist 1/3
posted by Virmir on November 29th, 2014 for Comic 328

As many of you know, I have been struggling with tendinitis in my right arm (my drawing arm) since June of this year. Starting with page 311 I've been drawing significant parts of the comic with my left arm, however due to overuse (especially in July) that arm has been giving me trouble too. Last month I decided to take a three week drawing break and didn't want to dip into the buffer (as I had done previously), and thus commissioned three guest artists to draw some CF pages!

This week's guest artist is Dragyn of Pending Else and Beastling, and who seriously needs to stop not drawing and draw more.

Your regularly scheduled artist will return with page 331 on the December 20 update! (And yes, the break did me good. Working on page 333 right now as I write this. )

Hey folks!

I'm pleased to announce another Urocyon-hosted comic: Wild Frontier by Xzadfor! This is a revived comic coming back from from a long hiatus with a decent sized archive already. Check it out! It has foxes in space. (Among other critters. )
Making of a Comic

I wrote up one of these looooooong ago, but every step of the process has changed since then. So here's a step-by-step look at how page 134 was made!

Hey folks!

Several pages back, I announced that I was doing a trial run of drawing pages entirely myself-- hence the abrupt style change. (Up until page 117, this was a team effort with Tod Wills providing the pencil sketches that I inked and colored.) I've really enjoyed drawing the comic so far, talked with Tod, and did some serious thinking.

From now on, I will be doing Crimson Flag entirely myself. When I originally enlisted Tod's help, I was not much of an artist at all. I've been practicing every day since then, and this is a challenge I am itching to take on. Obviously this is a major change for the comic, since I draw foxes way more short and cutesy than Tod. This is more towards my original vision of the comic though. Thanks for all your support!

Tod of course is still around! His main comic, Ekwara updates way more frequently than CF. Also, check out his main website and Livejournal.

Thanks for all the help, Tod! I couldn't have gotten this far without you.
