every kings chamber must have a horse painting. EVERY ONE.

hey, do you know what this means?! Page 30! I was planning to start advertising the comic at page 30. well it was a lie. the first 15 pages of Magus Tales are so impossibly terrible I wouldnd dream of directing traffic without redrawing them first. (while continuing to udate, of course.) So the Magus Premere shall be put off, as wisdom suggests. Also the web site needs to be polished and completed.

Some how I thought this would be a bigger deal. All the other comic artists commend the 1000 and 2000 hits.. Alas, I know now that even with such numbers one is far from famous. (or even necessarily liked)

Despite what yall may think, yall:

there are several Magus Tales related projects underway. First and foremost, a new color page six to replace the old impossibly ugly up-chuck inducing one. (its the one where heather attempts suicide with a rock.) Secondly, a fabulous and side splitting "horay, 2000 page views" image. Potentially the next update.  And of course, page 29 is being... conceived. Also in glorious living color.

hardy hardy hardy -OH!  and magus received its first review. A good one, alas- for I had already placed my multiple bets with multiple shady dangerous types of again multiple hundreds of dollars that the first review would be scathing.

better late than never

Something of the stuff of miracles has happened! I discovered a comic advertising on Penny and Aggie that is significantly more terrible than Magus Tales! I still have a hangover from the enormous party that ensued after its discovery. We even had an ice swan. You, know, a big statue of a swan in the middle of the room carved with ice?

anyway here it is: linkomatique

Page 27 killed me and probably added a wrinkle to my model worthy butt. 4 hours seated on my living room floor. 
anyway i'm going to be modifying my method. next update will be a new page 6.

 the new page 5. very ugly. very bad. but less so than the previous page. -which is actually doing time right now for causing some deaths

Wednesday, May 6, 2009

okay so im having some serious comicgenesis issues. I havent been able to log in, EVER, and leaving everything to "autokeen" is failing. obviously. Does anyone know of any other web comic hosts I may want to try that are.. better?

so i went back and re-did page 17. After 26 goes up I'm going to go back and fix page 5 :)

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

So I just read the first 50 pages of No Need for Bushido and am sad to conclude that their first 25 pages are better than Magus Tales! first 25 pages. Granted, all web comics have relatively ugly and turbulent beginnings, but this discovery displeases me all the same. I'm itching to go back and redraw the first 10 pages - but I think I should try and hit 30 before I back track.

horay! the first and poorly drawn appearance of Magus in Magus Tales! Important specifically because there has been nothing but Heather and Ratihas for some time. Now it is time to go back and fix up some of the previous pages.

Friday, April 10, 2009

baaaaaa baaa baaaaaa. The new title image. Obviously hints at some spoilers involving Heather's hair, but I think ye shall survive.

Monday, April 6, 2009

  so im not so hot on this page, nor the last one. but whooaaahoho woah!

okay so my only problem with the new totally super fabulous chapter  1 cover is that there is a large peach penis rising out of Ratihas's right shoulder.

im going back to grayscale and you cant stop me. These last two comics are shiney, yes, but they do seem to really bring out the imperfections. and indeed there are many. I miss the grainular wonder of my half tones, passe' as the may be. Plus consistancy just carresses my heart so! I guess to spice things up on rare occasion mayhaps I'll do a color page,  but I'm going back to good ole graphic novel.

MAAAAAGUUUSSSS you know what-sit page twelve is in line mode. BEHOLD!

Advice from a much better than i web comic artist suggested that I have at least 30 pages before i start directing traffic to the site. Which means, I'm going to have to step it up from one comic a week, to two. my my. So next week, count ona double update. because counting is fast in ateing.

Monday, February 9, 2009

The Magus Tales! weekly schedule has been figured out:

Sunday - the next comic is drawn in the good ole school way.

Monday - comic is scanned!

Tuesday - comic is inked with a graphics pad in photoshop

Wednesday - comic is printed, and then flat colors are applied with markers!

Thursday - comic is scanned again, and then split into panels and shaded with screen tones.

Friday - The comic is uploaded!

   as you can see (assuming afflicted ye are not) Magus Tales! page 11 is nearing its final stages, but has not its boxes and backgrounds. Seeing as I have been destroying it in this final stage, I decided to show you a cactus plant.

Thursday, February 5, 2009

As is demonstrated by the image below, Magus Tales! page 11 has some remarkably ugly panels for your deciphering pleasure. I imagine I'll have it posted mid Friday, a bit late but close enough to the deadline to detour self afflicted injury.

if my new header isnt awesome, i dont know what is.

Sunday, February 1, 2009

i have fallen into a kind of despair. alas!  I fear magus tales is not continuitious due to lack of establishing images and such and such and such. oh sha! Mais je ne peu pas draw backgrounds! shit. what am I going to do? I have the sneaking suspicion if you're not lea you wont having a flying fuck of an idea whats going on in this strip. am i right? am am amaamamamamam i i i

Saturday, January 31, 2009

hokay so

because magus tales is lacking in "establishing images"

a map shall be created. 

created and implanted on the inside cover of Magus Tales, like how there is often one inside fantasy novels. so meh.

Friday, January 30, 2009

alas. page 10 is even uglier than is the norm of magus tales, and thus i've not the spirit to finish it by placing in speech bubbles on this night. so, me first deadline be missed. i'm so deflated i cant even capitalize. check back later tomorrow. 

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

page 10 is in line mode.
