Starting today, patrons of my Patreon on Patreon.com/reinder
will get early access to the revised version of the Chronicles of the Witch Queen
story Courtly Manners 2: The Unicorn Race
. It'll update daily with large versions of the images added as attachments, because I haven't figured out how to make it possible to embiggen them with one click. The free run of this new version won't start until July 14 and will have images that are a mere 900 pixels wide - the Patreon version is 1280 pixels.The Unicorn Race
, of course, can be found elsewhere on the web today, but that version is exactly as it was when I created it in 2005. Here's what I've done for this round of publication:
- Redone the lettering for all files. I had originally lettered the images at the size of final publication, which is far too small for the modern web. So to make larger versions, I had to redo all of this.
- Cleaned up all images and corrected coloring mistakes. This is still ongoing! When making this promo image, I found a coloring error that had been present since 2005 and that I hadn't spotted before. So now that's fixed. If I find more as a result of posting this stuff on Patreon, I will fix that too.
- Recolored the last 8 pages from scratch, because the color master files could not be found. skycladstrega colored the very last one to help me make deadline.
I hadn't expected to have to do this much work for it, but it's done and the comic is much improved as a result. Please support my ongoing efforts through my Patreon at Patreon.com/reinder
