Website Update 12/5/2017

A little maintenance work on the website was done today so make sure to CTRL+F5 the page to see the changes.

At the time of this post, it’s not been applied to the FR version of the website.


List of changes and cosmetic improvements:

  • The menu was modified to include a link to pre-orders and replace “about the comic” link to “blog” (which links here).
  • The arrows were redrawn to appear more clean.
  • The bar section under the pages was cleaned up with the binge-reading newsletter icon, the TWC voting icon and a clearer Patreon icon.
  • The “For New Readers” section was updated to reflect current events.
  • A pre-orders button was added below with an image.
  • A “networking” section was added with the full collection of our small social media icons.
  • The text headers are no longer in bold.

Website Update

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:

Webdesign Updates:
-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.

Content Updates:
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 РPage 60 

Run Cycle Animation

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:
