I have recently made an account on Redbubble --> www.redbubble.com/people/akreo…
If there's any particular artwork you'd like to see up there, please let me know.
As you’ve probably noticed, during the last few months "off-White" updates were rather slow. Creating a free high-quality comic takes a lot of time and energy that we unfortunately had to put into our jobs and school. After a very long time and numerous discussions we’ve finally decided that maybe Patreon isn’t such a bad idea. After all even a few dollars per page will allow at least one of us to work a bit less over-time and concentrate on creating the comic!
You, our fabulous readers are what keep this project alive. Without your views, words of encouragement and helpful critiques we’d probably have abandoned the comic a long time ago. With pledges from you, we’ll be able to dedicate more time to the production of Off-White. There will be rewards for our patrons, too! We have a lot of sneak peeks and goodies to give to those of you who pledge!
Don’t worry – the comic is still 100% free to read for everyone and always will be. Think of our patreon as a tip jar for the artists.
I've been recently notified that someone on chickensmoothie.com is trying to impersonate me. They are apparently using my name and characters to order several commissions.
So yeah, that is not me. It's a troll and/or some bored child.
And for future reference here is the list list of websites , besides deviantart, I have profiles on. If you happen to find any other "akreons" anywhere else on the internets it's not me
If any of you guys are already on it please feel free to post links to your profiles so we can all discover some new art.
Since we finally reached the last page of Volume I of "Off-white" and announced updates of existing pages I though it would be a good idea to post the schedule of how we are planing to go about it. We'll be starting chronologically from the first chapter. There’re around 100 pages that are going to be redone completely since we find both their art and writing not up to our current standards. Hopefully this list will make things less confusing:
Cover - stays the way it is.
Prologue - nothing changes
Chapter I cover - updated
Pages 1-17 - intro scene - they will be redone and rewritten, the part with Raigho telling Iki about spirits will be expanded
Pages 18-22 - Albert and Seven introduction - expanded and rewritten, the goal is to make it less of an exposition dump
Chapter II cover - will be repainted but we would like to keep the general composition
Pages 23 -26 - art will be improved but layouts stay more or less the same
Pages 27-28 - this scene will be expanded and repainted
Pages 29-31 - reorganized totally
Pages 32-33- stays more or less the same, some art and dialogues tweaks
Pages 34-38 - just no, it's way too naive, must be rewritten
Pages 39-41 - one page will be added and art redone
Pages 43-58 - will be redone and rewritten, definitely needs more character development
Chapter III cover - will be repainted
Pages 59-82 - will be repainted but not rewritten - only minor dialogue fixes
Pages 83-85 - slightly reorganized and improved
Chapter IV cover - this cover will be repainted with a different character since Hati doesn't appear in this chapter
Pages 86-92 - improved and reorganized
Pages 93-120 - only minor art and dialogue fixes - around this place art and writing gets "acceptable"
Pages 121-139 - only minor color and anatomy tweaks
Chapter V cover - stays
Pages 141-151 - we are happy with those pages so we won't change them
Pages 152-173 - some color tweaks to make the light more consistent
Pages 174-285 - those pages will stay the way they are
All the old pages will be gradually moved to this folder --> OLD PAGES ARCHIVE. So no worries, nothing will be lost or deleted forever.
So that's more or less what we're planing to occupy ourselves with for the next few months. If you have any suggestions - any particular scene or dialogue that have been bothering you - now it's the perfect time to let us know! We would love to hear your input
DeviantART invited us to be guests at the Artist Alley, and take part in one of their panels.
You can read more about it here:
We'll also finally publish our other comic Milk for the Ugly. If you happen to be at Comic Con this year, make sure to find us. We have some Off-White badges and stickers to give away.
You'll also have the great opportunity to see how incredibly awkward and ugly we are in real life!
I have some "Off-white" related news for you.
Me and have been working on Off-White for almost 6 years now. During this time our lives gradually changed, and we've acquired new responsibilities. I'm busy with creating a museum design for my major degree in architecture, and Kate works full time on the newest Witcher game. With all that keeping up with a regular update schedule became more and more challenging. Because we are still very committed to this project, we felt that we've been letting our readers down lately. We've decided it's time to make some changes. To keep the updates regular we've invited a new member to our team! Today we welcome as our new artist and writer!
Here's a few words from her:
You’ve probably seen me around, especially in the comment section for the past couple of years. And for some of you more experienced, long-time readers, you’ve seen me in both of the Off-White forums as both user and Global Mod. I’ve been reading Off-White since 2009 and not only have I forged a strong friendship with Kate and Ann, but I’ve met plenty of wonderful (sometimes hilarious) fellow fans that have also become dear friends of mine. This comic and this community have been a pretty important part of my life, and even though I may not participate very often as of late, I still check the site at least once a day to see what’s going on.
And with that, it’s a huge honor to be brought aboard the Off-White team! Kate and Ann have been long time role models of mine. They’ve offered critique, advice, and even taught me all sorts of things to better myself artistically, and I feel like I can finally repay them for all the headaches I’ve caused them! I feel like they’ve awarded me with a new way to better myself by allowing me to work on this project with them, and I hope to do all of y’all proud. Happy reading, everyone!
With this change we hope to no longer have problems with hiatuses while one of us has to take a break from Off-White either because of work or private reasons. Please, give a warm welcome
Here are few of her works:

Tribute to Off-WhiteTribute to Off-White
Ohhh those brothers dear,
how I have come to fear
that we shall fall into darkness and despair,
how then shall this world fair?
Our sun has lost his heart,
and will no longer play his part.
what is a brother to do when the other has no hope,
As darkness closes in around,
misery and despair abound.
So I ask now where are they
those brothers dear,
for I have come to fear,
that this worlds end is near.

Good work comrades!
We received 76 entries which truly exceeded our expectations. It was very hard to pick only 10 winners... so we decided to throw more prizes at our contestants! On each side we picked 7 runner-ups who'll receive 396 - just enough for one month premium membership. All of the entries were amazing and if we only had the possibility we'd give prizes to all of their creators!

Thank you very much for participating!

Remember, comrades - you still have 4 days to take part in the battle, change the history and win 20000
Yesterday I got spammed to hell with messages linking to different variants of this image:
They can have slightly different graphics or contain different links but the message is always basically the same - go to this page and you'll receive 20 000 .
I have to ask the question - how dim do you have to be to fall for it?
Ok let's see - we have an image hosted on a profile that is 1 day old and asks you to visit a website with a strange url with a promise of a financial reward on an another website. How do you even imagine that would work? And now, of course, people start crying that their computers got infected with malware. Which is great - every genius who fell for this obvious phishing scam deserved it. I hope your shitty computer burns and you along with it.
I know this is a no-duh for 90% of people reading it but for the sake of the rest lets revise what we all should know about online phishig. And before you go all:
No, no you can't.
Copypasta from pwww.comodo.com
Be very careful about not replying to any such spam mails that ask you to confirm or update any information about your account.
Do not follow any links that come with the spam mails, which will lead you to websites that ask for conformation of your account information.
Never copy an unknown link from these kinds of spam mails and paste them on your web browsers. These links are made to look very humble by the phishers but they will actually land you to some scam and fraud sites.
Be careful about opening or saving any document or attachment that come with spam mails. Do not trust these kinds of emails even if they appear to be sent by some authorized entity.
Never ever send your confidential information about your account in an email.
It is better to be protected from these scams by using firewall, anti-spyware and anti-virus software. Make sure to update this software regularly for security of your pc.
Do not respond to those scam mails, which even seem to offer sound business or ask you to avail a refund. The fraudsters often send you phone numbers so that you call them up for business purpose. They use Voice over Internet Protocol technology. With this technology, their calls can never be traced.
You can help other Internet users by spreading the word about "phishing" scams.
Do forward the spam mails to email@example.com.
Also send a copy of the mail to the bank or credit card company whose name is impersonated in the email.
File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission that you have fallen prey to the phish net. If you fall a victim to phishing then there are high chances that you will also be a victim of ID theft.
You can also send email to the Anti-Phishing Working Group to firstname.lastname@example.org. This organization helps to fight further phishing scams.
You're welcome and no more spamming akreon, k?
The loathsome creature devoid of honor that goes by the name of Tailcat has crossed the line! This vile creature listens to lame music, doesn't do the dishes, and what's worst of all, doesn't put crayons back on their place. This and many other breaches of good manners escalated to the point at which I was forced to declare war! Stand by my side my brothers and sisters! For music! For crayons! For the dishes!
If your bravery and artistic input will be enough to harm our opponent you'll be handsomely rewarded for your deeds!
If you are caught collaborating with the enemy though, you'll be thrown into the poisonous hamster pit!
Your task is to take part in the war between Pugbunistan and Tailcatia. To do so you have to create a piece of artwork that depicts the victory of Pugbun/Tailcat over Tailcat/Pugbun. You can pick only one side of the conflict so chose wisely! The more people on one side, the less chances they have to win but the longer you wait before deciding, the less time you have to create your work!
The contest has two separate categories - supporting Pugbun or Tailcat.
Both categories have identical sets of prizes
You can submit your works only to one category.
One entry per person.
All entries must be made specifically for this contest
We're accepting visual entries only.
You can find references for both Pugbun and Tailcat here: tanathe.deviantart.com/favouri…
The contest ends on the 26th of May and the winners will be announced shortly after.
Post your entry in your deviantART gallery and send it in a note to pugbun or tailcat
