Hello everyone!

If you have been following my Twitter or my Patreon account you will know that last week i had a major hardware failure with my rig. My videocard simply stopped working and that caused me to loose some various updates since that happened while i was out of town during Spring Break.

On the bright side, i did get a small simple laptop recently to have as a back up in case the rig failed. Lucky timing since two weeks after i got it the whole  mess happened. So i AM able to work while i wait for the new PC parts to arrive from the US. It’s only that the current laptop is not so powerful and kinda slow. Also it doesn’t have VGA ports or a DVI one. So  for the moment i can’t use my Cintiq. I did buy a bamboo tablet some time ago to have as a backup and that is what i am using.

It is a shame to say that i got so used to the better pressure points and larger work area that i am struggling a bit to get used again to work with this one. So i have been a bit slow on updates.

Anyways, it is good to have backup plans for this sort of stuff. I was just lucky to have gotten them in motion weeks before the problem actually happened.

I do apologize if the quality of artwork suffered a bit from this.

Version 5.0 & Patreon!

The Eye has been upgraded to the lastest version 5.0 Katbox theme. If you notice any bugs please report them using the contact form on the nav menu, or by dropping us a line on the forums!

In other very important news. I have also opened a Patreon account for The Eye of Ramalach: http://www.patreon.com/Avencri

The account is set  based on my comic updates, not on a monthly basis. So the whole funding will only be received after i post an update of The Eye of Ramalach. Which is now set up to be a bi monthly comic. This basically means that The Eye will be posted every two weeks from now on.

As you can see, the new updates of Tina of the South have been set up as a milestone within the site. So the donation button for new pages will be gone from Katbox and new updates of Tina of the South will be achieved via Patreon.

The Tina of the South milestone is divided into two pieces. A $75 milestone that will pay for 2 updates of Tina of the South per month, and a $125 goal which will allow me to post every week. My plan is to have Tina of the South and The Eye of Ramalach alternate when at the $75 goal.
