I've gotten enough of the prose version written that I think I've filled in most or all of the possible plot holes, so starting in May, I plan to start releasing parts of the fanfiction to patrons pledging $3 and up on my Patreon.
That means after each comic update, my patrons will get to see a sneak peek of the next scene, weeks before the corresponding comic page comes out.
The whole prose version of the story will be released to the general public once it's complete. I'd do it earlier, but this tale's gotten so intricate that I want to get the whole thing written before I set it loose on the open web, just in case there's still something I've missed.
I've also decided to make the work-in-progress previews of the comic available to ALL my patrons, not just the $10 tier and up.
I wanted to make my most popular story more accessible to people with tighter budgets, so hopefully this helps.
I've also created an open collaboration,
featuring the star of the Underground!
For those who don't know, and open collab is where one artist creates part of a picture - usually the lineart - and invites others to do the rest and share the results. This could include color, shading, backgrounds, or all of the above.
I deliberately left the face off of this one, because I like how ambiguous the pose is. Is Mettaton jumping? Fighting? Posing for the camera? Inviting a dance partner to come join him? Sleeping? Dead? You decide!
If you choose to participate, please:
1. Add your name or URL to the credits on the image
2. Don't remove my URL from the credits
3. Send me a link to the completed picture, so I can show your work to my watchers and followers!
If you want to have the color, background and lineart in separate layers, you can use the .psd file I've attached below.
I look forward to seeing what you create. :)
