Rival Hearts http://rivalhearts.com A fantasy comic of epic (we hope) proportions Fri, 07 Nov 2014 05:13:52 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.7.5 Page 85 http://rivalhearts.com/?comic=page-85 http://rivalhearts.com/?comic=page-85#comments Wed, 05 Nov 2014 06:04:28 +0000 http://rivalhearts.com/?post_type=comic&p=608 Page-85

Okay, I’ll admit I cut a few corners on this page, but some of the extra details would have been extraneous… and I wanted to get this posted as soon as possible. (I plan to go back and add more details for the eventual print version.)

So, welcome back to another page, and a little more information on what this new chapter is about. As you can see” Family is the theme. And I assure you, you will be seeing a LOT of family. I won’t give it all away – where is the fun in that – but if you recognize this family name, then you can guess what will also be coming sometime in this chapter.

You’ve probably also noticed, in my incredibly slow updates so far, that the pages are now in color. I’m enjoying this aspect and I hope that the more pages I color, the quicker I’ll get at it. Practice practice, right?
But I like how the color looks. I’m also working on some splash/prints pages that I’ll be posting up randomly between these, or in the gallery, or on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter… all of the above? Look for them. Some will illustrate background stories and some are just for fun.Sorry this has been long and rambling. I hope you enjoy the story!
Cheers.

PS. If you haven’t see the new webcomic I’ve been drawing for, Dramatic Neutral, you should check it out. A romantic comedy with D&D adventure mixed in. Written by the brilliant screenplay writer Linder.

And there you have it. The conclusion of Chapter 2. Finally.
What is really going on? Who is this commander Shaala and why is she stalking our party? And speaking of them, what will they find when they return to Riktor’s town? What the heck is going on with this world?

This and other answers may be shared with you in Chapter 3, coming this September. (Sorry, hiatus necessary between life and planning.) With some new features. In the meantime, there will be new images in the Gallery over the next month or two, including some characters that will show up in the future. as well as images from the past. Enjoy!

And, as always, thank you for reading!

Hello all. and welcome to another page of Rival Hearts adventure. Things are moving. More so in the next page. And then… Well, you’ll just have to wait.
But we can see things going on with Shaala. Any ideas? Oh go on, take a guess.
Well, only if you want to.

Sorry. It’s been a very long day, longer than I’d realized even. Y’know, with it having been Summer Solstice here. Add to that a run around day with the kids after the little one had me up at 5 am… and now it’s.. Ooh, nearly half past 1 am. (Okay, summer solstice was yesterday.)

Ready to keep moving. I hope you enjoy the adventure as much as we are!
Thanks for reading.

Finally, a new comic has been posted as the new scene has started… and this chapter is coming to a close. We’ve come a bit full circle by returning to Shaala and her small band here.

My apologies for the almost two months between the last page and this one. I won’t make excuses (except that I lost track of time, kids kept me running, I was sick twice in the last month alone…) I will admit that I lost my drive for a little while, but I’m back and ready to keep this going.
Not only is this chapter going to end with a brilliant (if I do say so myself) little image with our little Huntress commander, but there is also so much coming at the start of the new chapter.

Hold on to your shorts, folks. We’re back and ready to bring you more of this exciting (we hope) story!

Thanks, as always, for reading.

(PS. Updated half an hour later with shading in the background. Yay! I’M BACK!)

Here you are. Less than two weeks, and you get another page. Another text heavy page, but don’t worry, more action is to come just on the next page… well, some. And more talk, and then more action.
Intrigued? Because I am.

As always, thank you for reading.

Next page posted, and things are coming together with information here. It’s been busy. And I had the oddest realization that it’s been almost a year since this scene was written. I’ve just been moving that slowly.

In other news, not much, but keep watching. There may be something coming soon regarding the future of Rival Hearts.

Thank you for reading.

Happy Almost St. Patrick’s day. It’s been a busy month and a half since last post. And only continuing, but we will persist on. Haha, after all, we’ve just had another big reveal, right? Which only leaves you to wonder, if this is big now… what more could we have coming?
Keep watching (and waiting.. sorry!) to find out.

Also, Hello to any new readers who joined from Katsucon, or Tumblr. (I post a lot of character doodles on Tumblr, some of which give hints to future events and characters. Take a look! (animegart.tumblr.com))

As always, thanks for reading! And I greatly appreciate your patience as I fit comic art between real life.

Took a little longer than I’d hoped, but here is page 77, finally. And it comes with a little more info. And some fun with Rik. I also get to model Ria and KD’s new garb more clearly.

And linked to that, their new outfits will be modeled in doll form in a little over two weeks (Feb 14-16) at Katsucon (National Harbor, MD) and created courtesy of our own Rikka (through her awesome and inspiring doll clothing business Crimson Chimera).
If you have the time and inclination, come by and look us up!

and as always, Thanks for reading!
Meg

1/31/14 Note: Image updated. I corrected some text formatting and shaded KD’s trousers.

Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays to all! Have another long-overdue comic. I think we are winding down to near the end of this conversation and back to some action again. (there is a bit of a side view on what else is going on with this one. (Yes, he’s helping her get dressed. What of it? Oh and look! costume change. It’s needed. their last outfits got a bit dirtied. Now you know what was in the bag KD retrieved back when he missed that he was being watched.)

Anyway, despite being a bit delayed for the last few months, I still intend to keep this story going. We have some pretty big plans still ahead in the many many pages still to be drawn (and written first… Aheheh…) I hope you readers are ready for some progress in the new year, because the slack will be picked up!

But first, family vacation: Christmas in TN. Should be fun. I might even have a New Year’s gift for you all.

Thanks for reading!
Meg
