Welcome to Raven Wolf

I am back

Heya, back from recovering from doctor's appointments, medication and all that not fun at all stuff. I'm hoping to start up work again now so hopefully you will start seeing work from me again. Very sorry for the long hiatus, I didn't think the meds and appointments would screw me over THIS much x.x

Now to try and get everything back on schedule x.x got a lot of work to do x.x

Also, I apologize for the drop in image quality for my readers who read ahead on the comic on 'inkblazers' http://ravenwolf.inkblazers.com they are having image quality issues due to an update and have yet to fix it (which is actually extremely frustrating for me) because of that updates to the comic will be much slower until they fix it. (4 pages a month instead of 8) I apologize for this, but is it just unbelievably stressful for me to have something I work so hard on look so bad.

Patreon Reminder and Print Sale SAVE 25-75%

http://www.patreon.com/kura

The patreon rewards will continue to improve depending on feedback on ideas for milestones and pledges.

So what is patreon? Well as described here http://youtu.be/wH-IDF809fQ it's a way for dedicated fans to help support artists, kinda like kickstarter but instead of funding a very big project, you're helping to fund updates and released for constant projects and keep them going, like Raven Wolf.

You do not have to pledge money to continue reading the series, though those that do pledge will help in keeping Raven Wolf continue to be released as well as help it remain free and available to everyone. They'll also be working toward opening up more exciting possibilities for Raven Wolf.

So yes, just a friendly reminder to check out the patreon page if you have not already.

As for the second part of the announcement, IT'S TIME FOR A HUGE SPRING SALE!!! It's out with the old prints to make room for the new, for a limited time during the entire month of May all fanart related merchandise will be 25% - 75% off! So if you've been thinking of picking something up now would be the time to do it! Be sure to take advantage of this limited opportunity while you can! http://kls.storenvy.com/collections/106531-fan-art-convention-left-overs

Full Colour Pages Are Back!

The problem I was running into has been addressed and I am now able to colour my comic pages again ^^ The pages that I had previously uploaded in black and white have now been re-submitted in full colour =) So be sure to check them out if you haven't already! (you only would have noticed the black and white pages if you read ahead on inkblazers or patreon)

For those wondering no, I did not manage to get photoshop, though through the suggestions of several recommendations decided to try colouring in Manga Studio 5 (the program I do all the work for the comic in anyway) and it worked pretty well. Though I don't work as smoothly with it as I do with photoshop I'm sure that I'll get used to it or eventually figure it out.

Important Announcement

I've unfortunately run into some technical difficulties on my end, I am having trouble obtaining Photoshop, the program I use to colour my images. Clearly, as a result I cannot colour my comic pages.

Now, before anyone PM's with the links for where I can 'you know what' the program for free. I actually do not wish to get my programs through these methods. I believe that if I am asking people to pay me for my art (whether it be by commissions or through InkBlazer) I can damn well invest in the programs I use to complete these tasks.

I know that there are other free - cheep programs that I can use, and yes, when I've been in the position where I cannot use photoshop I HAVE used them. It's just that for me they are more frustrating and tedious than they are help, because I don't know how to use them as well as I do photoshop, and things that would take me a small amount of time to do in photoshop, end up taking me hours upon hours to do in one of those programs (if I can end up doing it at all) Using another program would not only be counter productive, but a waste of my time.

For those wondering exactly what the issue is, I seem to have lost my CS4 disk/key. It was not with the other program CD's when I was gathering up my stuff to re-install, I panicked for a bit because I thought my mom may have thrown it out thinking it was just an out of date driver (to be fair she thought she might have too, because she had thrown a lot of those out). After thinking about it though I realized that because it was such an expensive program, that I put it in a 'special place' to make sure it would not get damaged or lost... and then completely forgot where that 'special place' was over the years... So basically, until I finally find that key (or find a way to hook myself up with Adobe's CC service) my colour pages and pieces will be on hold.

Fortunately, I can still do pages in black and white, so I will temporarily be releasing comic pages in B&W until I have this whole photoshop issue fixed. (for those that read Raven Wolf outside of Inkblazers, depending of course on how long this takes you may not even notice, since Inkblazers is currently several pages ahead of other websites I release the comic on)

As for commissions, I will do up to the B&W stage, but you may have to wait longer for me to be able to colour them (though once I am able to I will do so as soon as possible). For those who have already paid me for colour commissions and are unhappy with the wait, please PM and I will give you a full refund and my sincerest apologizes.

You Can Now Support Raven Wolf on Patreon

http://www.patreon.com/kura

Right now this is just a small announcement, I don't have a much as I would like up there yet, but I'm hoping to improve the page by receiving feedback on ideas for milestones and pledges. Right now it's in a very experimental stage to see if this is indeed something that will work out for me. One step at a time right?

So what is patreon? Well as described here http://youtu.be/wH-IDF809fQ it's a way for dedicated fans to help support artists, kinda like kickstarter but instead of funding a very big project, you're helping to fund updates and released for constant projects and keep them going, like Raven Wolf.

You do not have to pledge money, though the ones that do will help in keeping Raven Wolf released and help it remain free and available to everyone. Though I do not expect a whole lot right now if this venture is successful it will open up a lot more exciting possibilities for Raven Wolf.

Check out the page if you have the time, hopefully this will be a way to help Raven Wolf grow.

Raven Wolf PSA =)

Just a friendly PSA to my readers to check out Raven Wolf on mangamagazine http://ravenwolf.mangamagazine.net

Not only do the views and activity I receive there help pay me for my work (at not cost to you) but there are benefits to readers as well.

1. You can read further ahead on mm than you can here. (at the moment of this posting chapter 5 of the comic has recently been finished and we are now starting chapter 6 up)
2. Extra Bonus pages at the end of each chapter (except chapter 1) that are exclusive to the manga magazine release (All 'just for fun' things, nothing extremely detrimental to the story if I don't post them anywhere else)
3. The most latest revisions and fixes to errors on previous pages so that it is hopefully easier to read.

Also if you want to hang out with other fans of the series check out the official forms at http://fynta.com/forum/
It's also worth mentioning that I hold late night to early morning streams almost everyday, where I work on comic pages, commissions and art, so you are always welcome to join me there http://www.livestream.com/kurapika
There is even a chat that a few fans have set up at http://webchat.nightstar.net/?channels=RavenWolf&
