Autumn Beth

It has come to pass as I feared it would. Tthe Dreaded Deadline Doom has overtaken me once more. It's been a tough October and probably an equally tough November just around the corner. Work is busy, the kids have more school projects, birthdays, injuries, doctors appointments, Halloween and the ever present, ever debilitating seasonal depression which has slowed me down to sloth speed. I won't bore you with all the details. Suffice to say it's just been a crappy month. Which is too bad because I really like how the leaves change and for the most part I enjoy the nature end of Autumn. So to lift my spirits up (and make sure I left you with something to come to today) I was inspired to make this picture of Beth in all her Autumn cuteness. Hopefully I'll be on better footing next week but I can't promise this may not happen again between now and Christmas. Also, Patreon's Midnight Edition should be out this weekend and The Greenman by next weekend. I don't know. Should I do more of these pin-up type pictures for here or Patreon? See ya Monday. Happy undead-candy-extortion-day.

  1. Beth looks great. Pensive, vulnerable and yet strangely confident.

  2. I second the motion= very nice picture of ‘Beth. More pictures here is fine with me. Eric, I hope you feel better soon.

  3. Hot damn.

    Pardon me for a lapse of decorum. 😀 Sign me up for more Beth though, in whatever format you choose. This pinup is fantastic and really displays your growth as an artist. I’m not sure what you used for reference, but all of the proportions look right and the shading and colors are spot on. I also agree with D’s observation above regarding her expression. Very fine work, Eric!

    For my part, don’t worry about slowing down production, I enjoy every Monday and Friday more because I can look forward to another episode, but I can certainly understand seasonal depression and how a busy life can overwhelm you. I suggest you put together whatever you prefer for each update and, if that means nothing when your quality standards won’t be met, just let us know. Aside from that, maybe just take a couple of weeks to recharge or build a buffer? Some of my favorite comic artists/writers (Stand Still Stay Silent, Wilde Life) do that between chapters or at regular intervals intentionally and I think it serves them well, because they get a little breathing room and their readers know what to expect through a well communicated update schedule. The point is, figure out what works best for you, let us know what you plan to do (and why, if you so choose), and then run with it. Speaking for myself, I know I’m willing to be patient if it means the comic will continue. 🙂

  4. Excellent, evocative drawing— love it!

  5. very nice, you should definitely do this more often, makes a nice chance of pace, and include the guys for your female readers

  6. No apologies needed for this – it’s great.

  7. Agreed, nice work with this! It shows more of her than dialog alone can convey. Love the background, too!

  8. That´s very beatiful pic. Just pls watch yourself and don´t let seasonal depression evolve into full blown heavy depression as it happened to me. Then it´s very difficult to stabilize yourself. Only speaking of my experience.

  9. Thank you for all that you do. It means alot to us, especially those who experience the JOYS of seasonal affective disorder.
    Take care of yourself!
