Chapter 12 Page 7

January 4th, 2016

Welcome back and Happy New Year, everyone! I’ve got some news which I’ll discuss below.

But first, Vivienne’s Father lays out why he says no on Chapter 12, Page 7. Turns out, he just doesn’t believe in the powerful knick-knack to paddy-whack the Morantine throne. Hey, that scans! To see a preview of page 8, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

So the news, 2016 will be a big year for Snow by Night. I’m finishing off the last rewards from the Vol 2 Kickstarter. Once that’s done, I’m going to run a Kickstarter for Volume 1 and Volume 3. I’ve been wanting to move Vol1 from the individual chapters to volumes for a while now, and we’re almost done with Vol3.  I’m also contemplating making a Patreon page for Snow by Night to show some of the design work that Julie and the artists do as well as other benefits. I’ll keep you all informed.

The big news. In Volume 3 I will be joined by a new colorist. Naty has been with me for 9 chapters, but the demands of school and other commitments means she has to curtail her activities here. I greatly appreciate all that she’s done for the comic. Naty, thank you very much.

Starting with Chapter 13, Steph Stober will be taking over coloring for Snow by Night. She’s the one who helped me resdesign the Snow by Night web page and is the artist for Final Arcanum. She has some big shoes to fill with Naty’s departure, but I have great faith in her. Welcome aboard, Steph!


Chapter 5 Page 13

Mathilde saves the boy’s bacon in Chapter 5 Page 13. Or does she….Dun, dun, DUUUUN! Laurent is up to something, I know it! I don’t like his shifty eyes….

Hi. It’s Naty. I’m sick and a wee bit delirious. You may have heard I have Mono. Some of you are cringing in sympathy, and some of you are scratching your heads wondering what the big deal is.
Mono is a virus, which means I can’t do anything but rest and drink fluids during it’s unfortunately long run time of 4-6 weeks. Its most notorious and lingering symptoms after the fever, aches, chills, and nausea…..ugh nausea….are fatigue and loss of appetite. The week we went off the air I was so nauseated I couldn’t sleep. Anti-nausea pills are MAGIC. Not that I want to eat anything, but I could if I wanted to now. But I’m just too tired to eat. I’m too tired to do anything. I am so incredibly tired, you guys, I went to the store for toiletry essentials and it felt like I hiked up a mountain to get there. The few items in my hand basket felt like lead weights and I wasn’t entirely sure I was going to be able to leave the store with them without assistance. Everyday things are a struggle, including coloring Snow by Night. Now that my fever is gone and I have magic pills to ward of the nausea, I’m trying to color again, but I feel like a turtle. So I ask on behalf of the team for everyone to please be patient with us while I recover from Mono. I will do my best to meet our usual update schedule, but If I can’t do it, I just can’t do it.

As an aside, I totally win for worst Con Crud this year because the incubation time for Mono is long and because all my troubles started exactly on Oct 1st means I picked it up at Dragon Con. Luuulz.


Diane here, popping in to add a few notes. First off, I’m so excited for the build up that’s happening on this page… You can tell we’re headed somewhere with Laurent (and that he wasn’t just a joke!). To see where exactly the boys are headed, check out our sneak peek at Top Web Comics.

Because of Naty’s sickness, I’d like to extend an offer to our readers asking for more fanart! We’re always happy to see it, and in the event that we can’t post a page, we really like having something to show you, regardless.

I also want to pose a question to you. If we can’t get a colored page done in time, would you prefer to see filler art (like sketches, or some of the bonus art we include in the chapter books), almanac entries, or simply the inked version of the pages, with the colored pages to be added as Naty completes them? Let us know in the comments!


Fan Art – Jen Zyren Smith

October 7th, 2012

Hello everyone. As you can see from the title for this post, our colorist isn’t back up to speed yet. She went to the hospital last Friday and was diagnosed with mono. Good times! So she’s started treatment and feeling better, but she hasn’t been able to finish a page for us. Instead, we have another art trade for you. This is Snow Dance by Jen Zyren Smith of LaSalle’s Legacy. Thank you, Jen. You’re a gem. Jen; Gem. It’s almost a rhyme. Regardless, please join me in wishing a speedy recovery to Naty. We’ll see what she can get done by Wednesday, but her health comes first.
