Two reasons, why the usual “every Tuesday” can’t be upheld any longer:
1. I’ve caught up with the German version, so I haven’t anything on stock.
2. I’ve got quite severe back problems at the moment. Which means, I can’t sit and draw for very long time, or else the pain kills me. I’m trying to find a better chair, but the thing is that I need two – one for work, one for my drawing table at home. And those chairs are anything but cheap, I can tell you. So, until I’m actually sitting on one, the delay will unfortunately continue.
In the meantime, I thought it was highly time to link to some fanart. There’s actually quite a lot of fanart in existence, but not so much on DA. If you look on the right link bar, first link under “misc”, you’ll find all the fanwork people sent me via e-mail. And if you’re more into Deviantart, you’ll find some here:
Now, if any of you sent me another link, probably via comment on this blog, that I haven’t listed here (I think that might be the case, but can’t remember where to look!), please write me an e-mail or copy the link in a comment to this newspost. I am very sorry I didn’t do this earlier, it’s not that I’m not extremely pleased with and grateful for every fanart, it’s just that I’m a forgetful old hag.
Just to let you know: I’m a bit stuck with the translation of the upcoming strip, that’s why it’s taking a little longer. Patience, please…
Second week, this time you’ll get to see bigger images of Mercedes. The last picture in the series will look unfamiliar to you – it’s from the bonus story in the 3rd book of the printed version (only available in German).
As I announced last week, there won’t be any new strips for the following 2 weeks. Instead, I give you a few images you already know, albeit in much smaller dimensions. Those pictures were voted for by my German speaking readers, and I must admit that it didn’t occur to me that maybe I should ask the non-German-speaking part of my audience as well.
It’s too late to do so for Death, I’m afraid, but you can still vote for any of the other main characters that will be presented. Next week, it’ll be the Maiden. So, in case there are any Mercedes-pics you’d like to see bigger, just comment on this blog post!
Other characters are:
- Little Death
- The ugly guy from the gas station
- Finagler (you know, the mischievious case worker in Destiny)
- The head of Fate’s high council
I’ve been falling behind with drawing new strips lately, so I’ll need a few days to let the German version catch up. This means, there will be no new strips for 2 weeks – but you’ll get something else instead. I won’t say more right now, it’s nothing big, just a little something I offered my readers on the occasion of this year’s 10th anniversary of Death & the Maiden.
