Slog Blog will be back soon!

First off apologies for the lack of posts since June. In the time between now and then, I have actually tried to set up two posts, explaining my absense, but I just found them in the 'blog bin' so to speak; and despite me having set them to publish at a certain time and day, they haven't.
Of course they're pretty pointless now, so I deleted them.

I hope to be up and running back to every Sunday soon! I'ma bit behind with the strips.... and I may have lost the hand drawn version of the next Grape Chronicles XD... only a maybe though I haven't had a proper look under my bed yet ;)

Oops! Sorry I forgot to upload yesterday morning. usually I set it to auto-publish on a Saturday night ready for the next day, but got side-tracked on Saturday.

This week we all appear to be doomed as Grape has a tough time getting over Rory.

The Grape Chronicles 4;

The fourth of our Grape Chronicles adventures.
Look at the detail you get with the chains. You don't get that with other mollusc based comics now do you?
So yes out hero finds himself in a spot of bother after being taken captive.

The Grape Chronicles 3; Walkies.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

I had fun making this one ^.^ The variety of facial expressions :D
The last frame with the crazy moment of arms needs work on. When drawn by hand it doesn't look so bad but on paint it's hard to get it not looking like some form of mutant.

Don't forget to vote! A new month has began so it's reset down to 0!
Vote every day if you can remember!
We're currently at 511 with 11 votes. (at time of writing)
The comic at position 100 has 149 votes, so if we try and you send the link to your friends we can do this :)
Of course the top comic has thousands of votes so we can't beat them, but it would be nice to place in the top 100.

The Grape Chronicles 1; In The Begining

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


Ah yes, The Grape Chronicles have arrived!
I shall be updating every Sunday now, in theory. Saturdays if I am busy on a Sunday.

Now a quick explaination behind the inspiration for this strip.
We were quite happily sitting there in biology and a picture of a gorilla comes up on the board. The above ensues, following that some sequels from the depths of my mind. :D

Experimenting with different techniques.

Tried experimenting with my photo-editing software and this random program I found in the depths of my C-Drive.
I've been trying to find some way to give the slogs the edge they lack. Compared to when drawn by hand, the computerised slogs lack something, not sure what, perhaps the detail? So could the answer be as simple as to buy a scanner? We shall see.
I plan to try and be more regular with posting; pick a certain day and update every week on that day.
