Hey everyone, update time. Let's start with your new wallpaper:
I had the crayons out, so I decided to do something with them that also tied into the current story in the main comic. You can get it at the Wallpaper page on the website, same as always.
And that should give you a fair idea of what I accomplished since the last update, too. I finished all of the crayon drawings from the original (non-Patience) pledge levels and started in on the D&D party drawings, along with the first few Patience crayon pieces. I have not mailed any of this art yet, however, so don't go checking your inbox for shipping notifications. They will likely trickle out over the next few weeks, a few at a time, while I keep working on the rest of them.
A reminder that if you ordered a D&D drawing but you want to change the characters that I depict (because your old character probably had a full adventuring life and retired to be queen by now) or swap it for a regular OOTS drawing, you can do so by sending me an email at email@example.com. (The D&D parties I've already finished were for customers who previously updated their information with me.) Also, I will be going through my Kickstarter message inbox before I mail anything, so if you have an address change for your package, you can send it to me there and I'll make sure to update my list.
As far as what else I did, let's look at the Workometer. The half-shaded boxes represent the pieces I finished but didn't mail yet.
So the only other thing I did was start on the Winter miniatures set. I am aiming to release that during this upcoming winter, which means I needed to get started on it now. Beyond that, I've done some writing on one of the stories remaining, but not so much that I'd feel OK lighting up a box. I also realized that I'd never added a line for the D&D drawings that were Patience packages on the Workometer, so that's fixed now.
My goal for the next update is early November, by which time I hope to have all of these boxes mailed and another stack of art completed while being well on my way with the Winter miniatures. And you'll also get the last wallpaper, too. Thanks, as always, for your patience and support.
P.S. I will be releasing the Summer miniatures that you got back in 2013 to the general public sometime in the next week or two. Like the Spring ones, there will be a small selection of additional monsters plus the updated art style, and the same discount will apply. Rather than clog your inbox with another email when that happens, you can just use the same coupon code I gave you in the previous update to get the discount, if that's a thing you want. And if it's not, feel free to never think about it again.
