Volume I was successfully funded! Thank you to all 500+ backers who supported this project!
The French version of the website now displays full-spread images at 1600px width as intended instead of 70% of the width. (Took me long enough to notice it!!!!!) -_-‘
The website was tightened up today in both English and French. It can still be improved by a professional but for now this is as far as I can go with my own coding abilities.
Ideally I would like to hire someone to optimize the site at some point. For now this is what’s changed:
-The menu bar was improved.
-The French landing page was improved.
-A “For New Readers” section was added.
-The TopWebComics button was given more visibility.
-The Newsletter Subscribe button was added to the reading page.
-The website fonts were updated.
-The banners were updated to reflect the upcoming Kickstarter (and will continue to be updated).
The chapter covers on the FR site cannot be adjusted. It won’t let me. I don’t know why and haven’t found an explanation yet but I’m looking.
Over 23 pages have been touched up, with text adjusted or corrected and 4 pages were completely redrawn, here listed:
Chapter 3 – Page 14
Chapter 3 – Page 15
Chapter 3 – Page 57
Chapter 3 – Page 60
The Lady of Astor from Chapter 1, animated in a quick run cycle. This is replacing the current “coming up” animation when you get to the end of the currently published pages and hit “next”.
I used Muybridge‘s photographs to base this horse on. His work is very interesting for animation, albeit old.
It’s a painted remake of this pixel animation I made of the same character last year:
I was surprisingly satisfied with the French translation for that one. Check it out if you’re bilingual!
