Where have I been?

Because I'm sure a lot of you are wondering, haha. Well if you've been caught up on my DA, you'd know that I've been real busy with my final year of uni! I've got 2 jobs I've been working on and an internship, and when topped off with my usual classes and my senior thesis film, I've had my hands more than full this term!

So what does that mean for OBT? Well, some of you may know that I've been working on a complete facelift for Chapter 1 of the comic; including a new prologue, fresh art to match my current style, some retcons, and some character redesigns. This revised Chapter 1 will not be released on most mirrors until it is totally completed so that new readers aren't confused by all the retcons/style hopping involved. I currently have 6/22 pages done for this facelift including the prologue, and as I get more free time, I will be working on more of those pages. These shouldn't interfere with Chapter 2 page releases (any delays are related to school).

As you can see though, I've gone ahead and updated Malachi's design on this page! I employed the help of my good friend Pika with updating Malachi's design to be something more reminiscent of the Shinx/Luxio hybrid he's supposed to be. I think we can all agree he leaned a little too hard into Luxio and Luxray vs. just a Shinx up to this point. I was just gonna let his design be for the rest of the chapter, but I have thoughts to eventually replace all of Malachi's appearances in this chapter with the new one and that'll be... A bit of a to-do, but I'll slowly chip away at it. Like with the Chapter 1 facelift I probably wouldn't post those revised pages until the entirety of the Chapter was done.

So what's next? I won't be able to do regular updates again until December at the soonest, but I appreciate your patience with putting out pages. My studies really come first and foremost, and while I'll update OBT when I can, updates will be infrequent. I don't want to put the comic on official hiatus, but I also can't manage a page a week for now. Thank you all for your patience, and I hope to have another page for you all again soon!

Thanks to my very good friend Kiwiflame for beta reading up to chapter 4!

On the one hand, or paw in this case, I think I get an idea as to what you're saying here, and it's fine by me.

On the other, I feel bad for Malachi; I mean, his dream has been shattered by powers beyond his own control, and Keaton was far from forgiving...
