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.

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.

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.

alas i missed the update. arrr. for those of you who read these and go, "pssh, why doesnt she like, know how to use comicgenesis?" the fact of the matter is I made my account back when they were keenspace, and then left it inactive for over a year. this deadly combination makes it impossible to log in, and no forum remedy on all the internets has the cure. I swear I've tried everything.
anyway, this page like many others is afflicted with the ugly, so don't touch the screen or you'll catch it. especially the second to last panel; that one may have to be put down.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
