Howdy!

After a very busy few days finishing scripting, doing all of the layouts, and working 9 hours non stop on the first page of the chapter, I can safely say that PRS is officially off of hiatus. The first page is already up on Smackjeeves for patrons. (And as usual, the high res version goes up Friday on Patreon!)

This, however, does not mean I'm back to weekly updates. The first half of this chapter is going to be a bit more demanding on the art side than the average chapter so 9 hour pages may not be unusual (for reference, the average page is maybe 3 or 4 hours counting the sketch). Additionally I'll be taking part in a very intensive summer course that'll eat up most of my summer. I'll definitely be shooting for once a week updates when I can but it'll depend on how busy my week is and how busy the page is. Also I have some other art to get done. So much to do, never enough time!

I'm just excited to get this chapter started! =D Let the plot continue!

So some of you might have heard that I've been considering doing a patreon special offer in the near future in the form of some double sided acrylic charms featuring Naya and Echo: And today I finally got the sample!

The full order will be put in on March 1st. I will only order 25 of these total- so counting the samples I will have 27 to give out (I'm keeping one!). These will be available to any patrons of the 5+ tier on April 1st. If the amount of patrons at that time exceeds 27 then it will be on a first come first serve basis.

Okay, since I forgot to include this with the original rules:

- Eevees and their evolutions are very rare in PRS. Also I'm sick of getting requests for those at streams so I will not accept any further cameos for these. (Have already hit my cap on these)
- Absols are also very rare and I will not use them as cameos.
- I have already hit my cap on Riolu/Lucario
- If your cameo is a less requested Pokemon it is more likely to be used.
- Re-emphasizing the rule about natural designs. Slightly off color (lighter brown than normal, or a little warmer/cooler in a hue) is fine- but drastic changes like a white pikachu will be rejected.

I have already had to delete several cameo submissions for failure to follow the natural design rules.

With Chapter 9 coming to a close this week I've begun scripting for Chapter 10. There's a number of crowd scenes I'm anticipating in the chapter so I'm opening up cameos! Below is a link to the rules and form:

So I forgot to mention this back when it was started, but sometime last spring/summer a PRS Dubbed Series was started by :iconlucario-bandit: ! I meant to give a signal boost to the casting call but well- life was buy and I forgot. Oops. The first episode (chapter one!) was completed a few weeks ago. Now Lucario-bandit is working on Chapter 2 and has launched another casting call for the characters to be appearing! Here's a link to the casting call for those interested! The characters up for auditions are:

- Echo (I personally will be giving input on who takes this role since I know Echo's true identity!)
- Amber
- Bern
- Lucy
- Ho-oh
- Raikou


Episode One:

Lucario is learning the ropes on directing, video editing, etc. so please be sure to send tons of positive encouragement!

Howdy, everyone!

First off I'd like to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone for all of the support this year! It's been a bit of a rough year over here but y'all make it all bearable! ^_^ As always I want to return all your kindness with as many goodies as I can manage to put together. However, the introductory test of the new request system as well as changes to the request streams have proven a tad bit too much for my work load this past few months. 

Now don't stress- I won't be removing requests as a reward. I quite enjoy doing them for everyone- really! It's more of a reworking of the system to lighten the work load a bit while allowing for people to still get requests here and there. In fact- this new system will hopefully allow me to go a step further and do stuff like backgrounds without being overly disruptive!

But before I get to the request system, I'd like to do a quick overview of some reward changes across the tiers.

$5 Tier:
- Can no longer place absentee requests for request streams

$10 Tier:
+ Can make absentee requests at request streams
- Suggest a sketch for warmups has been removed cause haha... I rarely ever got around to those. =(

$15 Tier:
- No more monthly requests
+ Gets +1 Request Point per month

$25 Tier
- No more monthly requests
+ Gets +2 Request Points per month
+- The 2nd request during streams is now a non-absentee request

--

Simple enough changes. The request points are replacing the monthly requests. Meaning you can save them up and use them whenever (at a max of 2 times a month). Saving them up allows you to redeem more stuff- even stuff I wouldn't have allowed in the past!

1 Point: New Icon Sketch
1 Point: Color a lined thing 

2 Points: New Sketch (+2 Points per extra character)
2 Points: Color and Line a sketch* (+1 Point per extra character)

4 Points: New Sketch with Background (+2 Points Per Extra Character)

6 Points: Background Lines/Colors (+1 Point per extra character)

*(Lines are not done individually for ease of recordings)    

--

You will be able to redeem points using the newly renovated Patron Request Form. An added section for raffle requests has been added to the form to keep it all in one place. You can track your Patron points in the same spreadsheet where the raffle stuff is kept as well. Both links are below.

Additionally I've given ALL patrons 1-3 points based on how long they've been a patron! I may give points for other events in the future as well! 

Patron/Raffle Form: goo.gl/forms/d6EiQMBxYAjbkKiq2
Patron/Raffle Sheets: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d…

--

Here's to another great year! =D Thanks so much, everyone!

Edit: Upon request, for those who have not submitted a December request may convert your request to points for the new system!

I hate to delay updates so soon after returning but long story short:

I got a migraine Wednesday. I'm behind on class. I still sorta have the migraine- not the headache part- but the being sensitive to light part. So I'm supposed to be taking it easy. I also thought it's a great idea to fight Arch Tempered Xeno'Jiiva in MHW with sensitive eyes all afternoon. It was fun but that was a lot of flashing lights and I think my eyes are unhappy. My mom/friends say the migraine symptoms should go away in a few days at worse. I just need to work on class for a few days so PRS is being put on the backburner.

No worries: All is good, just tired and making bad decisions. Nothing new there. I'll definitely make up any missed updates in the schedule ASAP.

Seriously though: AT Xeno is one hecking fun fight. He makes Kirin look easy... but at least he doesn't give me the urge to throw the controller at the TV.

Amber: What happened to the last panel?
Mist: Neko deleted it because it was too much linework.
Amber: Wait what?! But it's important!

Heya all! Just an update on the hiatus situation. I was hoping to get PRS updating this week or last but the pain in my shoulder has been unusually high since Friday and I'm trying my best to take it easy. It's been a bit up and down and tonight especially is bad. The art I got done last night was under the influence of pain killers which I don't like to use often since they only mask the symptoms. Drawing with painkillers will still worsen the pain in the long run if I don't take it easy. This is why Inktober is behind (partially) as well as other things. I'm hoping the pain will subside back to the usual levels of annoyance by the end of the week.

Bear with me! I swear I want to get working on PRS again soon!

Yeah. I'm doing inktober again this year. xD Since I don't do the normal inktober with an actual pen on that flat white stuff people carry around I'm just gonna outline my personal rules for this year.

1. I will follow the main Inktober Prompts.
2. When possible, make Nightfall or Sunrise themed art.
3. Only ink brushes allowed in photoshop. If it's not in my ink set, it does not exist.
4. Do not use my usual inking brush. Try new stuff and have fun.
5. Max one hour per drawing (timer starts after sketch is done). This is cause I have other things to do. Also it makes me switch up my style some.
6. Minimize the use of tools like fill bucket, layer blending, etc. Layers are allowed but minimize usage when possible.
8. Absolutely no Pokemon allowed.
7. Have fun!

PRS is going on hiatus. I'm feeling really shitty about things right now and am overall pretty burned out. There's been an increase of negative comments both here on DA and SJ lately as well as a user harassing me on Tapas recently. It's getting to be a bit much. I know I should ignore these things and not let it get to me, but it has. Usually I'm most excited after posting a new page, but the last few pages have me feeling not so great about the story and comic. I just feel like the entire comic is a mess and that right now my best isn't good enough for the story I want to tell.

Don't worry. I won't stop working on PRS. I've been a bit depressed/having anxiety lately and I think it's time to step back for a bit seeing as the last few pages have been tough for me to get motivated for- hence the recent delays. I've got the next page sketched- but it's a monster of a page art-wise and even when I'm at my best I doubt the page will be what I want it to be.

This is an indefinite hiatus.
