Almanac – The Lakelands

December 19th, 2013

For the final Almanac entry before we go on our holiday break, I discuss the Lakelands. At the heart of northern Everique, the Lakelands are the ecoregion that surrounds the Sweet Seas. It’s the home of several powerful native nations.

Happy Holidays everyone! We’ll see you all in the new year!

Chapter 8 Page 6

December 18th, 2013

Guess who managed to find Bertrande’s laboratory on Chapter 8 Page 6? To see a preview of the next page, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

This is the last page this year. We have an almanac entry this Friday and then we’ll be off for two weeks for a brief hiatus over the holidays. If you would like to have a piece of your fan art displayed during our hiatus, please send them to me. See my email addy on the About page.

Fun fact, when Brittany drew this page the sword hilt on the bookcase was obviously a katana. I replied that it had to change. No Samurai Jacques. At least not yet. The search for Catai is what drives so much of the exploration of this age. So Brittany made it a sabre for me.

Don’t forget to check out the SpiderForest webcomic of the week — The Sundown Boys.

Chapter 8 Page 5

December 16th, 2013

Bertrande begins the experiment on Chapter 8, Page 5 and Snow-by-Night does not find it a pleasant experience. Run, Blaise, run! To see a preview of the next page, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

Next week, we will be on break. If you wish to have a piece of fanart prominently displayed, please send me your creations. You can use my email on the About page.  In other news, Minuiko sent over some updated pages for A Life So Free. I’ve updated the pages. They are 7.v1, 7.v3, 7.v4, 7.v7, and 7.v8. The tweaks she made improved the pages noticeably.

The SpiderForest webcomic of the week is The Sundown Boys. Set in an alternate, dystopian future where cities, states, and even countries have succumbed to the richest and most dangerous criminal organizations, Robert, Leon, and Geoffrey Heron work as soldiers and assassins for the DeSaule Organization. After a chance encounter with a girl from Leon’s past, the brothers find themselves swept up in a major conspiracy which will reveal not only a startling secret about the brothers’ abilities, but also long-kept secrets of the DeSaule Organization.

Almanac – Wall of the West

December 13th, 2013

This week’s Almanac entry is the Wall of the West. This mountain range rises on the western edge of the Great Grass Sea and bars further exploration into the west. The mountains were inspired by the Rocky Mountains. I have some family out in Denver and on my last visit we saw the Flatirons. They are an intriguing and picturesque mountain formation, and they reminded me of a wall, hemming in the open lands to the east.  The image stuck with me so here they are in the world of Corthis.

Denver is also the home of my friend Robin Childs of Leylines. She’s running a Kickstarter for her 3rd Volume. Please join me in supporting her project and bringing this volume to print.

Chapter 8 Page 4

December 10th, 2013

Bertrande has Snow-by-Night well in hand on Chapter 8 Page 4. The alchemical seal that Bertrande has drawn on the floor not only prevents the manitou from escaping but from pulling upon the aether to manifest her snow powers.  To see what Blaise is up to, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

I also want to give a plug for Robin Childs and her webcomic Leylines. She’s running a Kickstarter project to fund the printing of Volume 3. She is weaving an incredible story with solid characters, excellent pacing, and an intriguing story. Join me in helping her get volume 3 printed and become one of her backers.

Also, don’t forget that we have some opportunities to upload some fanart at the end of the month when we take a brief break for the holidays. I’d love to show of some of the talents of the Snow by Night fan base. Please send me any submissions (email is on the About page), along with the name you want posted and any portfolio links.

And lastly, the SpiderForest webcomic of the week is Supervillainous. Check it out when you have a moment.

Chapter 8 Page 3

December 8th, 2013

Knowledge is power on Chapter 8 Page 3. Snow-by-Night is bound as Bertrande prepares to extract her aether. To see a preview of the next page, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

So Blaise’s commentary about everything being uphill was drawn from Brittany and my experience in Québec. Our friends were kind enough to drive us downtown to see the Old City. We left the car and went uphill. That evening, we walked uphill to get back to the car. Brittany and I looked at each other and said, “Wait a minute… how… what? Is this city built on a giant möbius strip that is always going up hill?” Apparently in Québec, you can go uphill both ways to walk to school. Oh, and you will be walking through the snow.

I saw Thor over the weekend. I enjoyed it a lot. I was particularly entertained by the Norse in Space artistic style they had through most of the movie. The blending of the fantasy and science fiction elements together reminded me lot of the old ’80s movie Krull. I haven’t seen Krull in a long time so I don’t know how well it stands up, but something about the artistry of Thor kept reminding me of some of the fun ’80s fantasy movies with much better special effects.

The SpiderForest Webcomic of the Week is Supervillainous. It’s a relatively new webcomic of a super villain who is trying to juggle work and family life. If you like a satirical look at the superhero world from the villain’s point of view, this comic is for you.

Also, we have our call for fan art. Snow by Night will on a brief hiatus over the holidays. We would be more than happy to post any fan art during that time. It’s a great way to get notice for your comic or portfolio. Send any inquires to me at eric (at) snowbynight.com. Thanks!

Almanac – The Great Grass Sea

December 6th, 2013

This week’s Almanac entry is The Great Grass Sea. This is my fantasy version of the Great Plains. I imagine the prairie dogs freaking out the first Japethan explorers. Oh heavens, it’s been a long day and I’m tired. So I’m going to wrap up the journal entry here. Have a great weekend, everyone.

Chapter 8 Page 2

December 4th, 2013

Bertrande and Jassart trick Snow-by-Night into the chair in Bertrande’s laboratory on Chapter 8 Page 2. Bad things will come of this. To see a hint of those bad things, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

I’m tempted to make Snow-by-Night’s comment into a button. Maybe “I sit through opera without restraints.” Or maybe “Opera without restraints.” Not sure yet. I’m still playing with the wording.

We will be taking our holiday break from Dec. 23 through Jan. 3. There are a lot of holidays in there and the team will be spending them with our families. So there won’t be any pages or almanac entries during those two weeks. We’ll resume on Jan. 6. During that time, I’d be happy to post any fan art. If you’re an artist, think of this as free publicity. I’ll put your art up on our landing page and give the link to your portfolio/website/webcomic. Check out some of the previous work done as fanart on our Extras page.

A little bit of legalese. If you submit fan art to Snow by Night, you are granting Mythmakers a limited license to display the art on our webpage. You retain all other rights to it. In fact, Mythmakers will give you permission to sell the fanart, even though it uses our characters, as long as you include a link to our website on the art itself. The link can be small and unobtrusive as long as its legible. If you previously submitted fanart to us or participated in Art Contest earlier this you, this permission retroactively applies to you too.

The Spider Forest webcomic of the week is Cooties. They’re in space at the moment. Yes, teenagers in spaaaaaaaaace!
