It’s the last week to participate in the Create-a-Chio project! Commission me to create a custom Chio, who will then appear in this chapter of the comic! Commissions will close next Wednesday, May 3. Get your note in soon to guarantee a spot!
(This is kind of a soft deadline; I’ll leave the commission page open as long as possible, but this is the last week I’ll be able to guarantee it!)
It’s about time for another batch of small updates, since there are a bunch of little Follower-related things going on! Or have gone on. You know what I mean. Time for a bulleted list!
- Read our Post-PIX Con report on Radiochio! It’s shaping up to be a light convention year for us, but we’ll be sure to make up for it with comics.
- Create-a-Chio commissions are still open, and will be for at least another week or so. Don’t miss the opportunity to leave a permanent mark on the Follower-verse! (I’m open for other types of commissions, too!)
- We’ve re-opened our shop and moved to Tictail! We have printed comics, buttons, art prints, and other stuff. More new stuff is coming soon, too! (You can sign up for our newsletter to be notified when new stuff hits the store.)
- Follower is now updating (with back updates) on LINE Webtoons! You can now read on LINE, Tapas, or Comic Chameleon. Reading on these apps also helps support the comic through a tiny bit of ad revenue!
- Last but not least, I’ve started adding new vote incentives to Topwebcomics again! Vote for Follower to help promote the comic to new readers.
Just a quick reminder post, we’re going to be at the Pittsburgh Indy Comix Expo this weekend! It’s a free event, with additional programming taking place across the street at the Toonseum throughout the day. We had a blast last year and are very excited to be back again. We’ll have copies of Follower 1 and 2, as well as other comics and stuff.
We don’t have table location information in advance, but I’ll be sure to update this post with more when I have it. Follow @radio_chio on Twitter for updates throughout the day.
Hope to see some of you there!
Chapter five of Follower is here at last, and boy do I need a whole bunch of new Chios/Vloxen for this chapter! This is where you can step in to become an honorary Project Cottontail geneticist and help out!
We’ve decided to open up commissions for custom Chio characters, which will also cameo in chapter 5 of Follower! You’ll be able to customize your character’s name, fur, hair, and eye color, hairstyle, and personality, and I’ll work with you to come up with a character that’ll fit into the world of the comic. You’ll also receive a full-body illustration of your character with reference data, as shown below!
Since this is a pretty time-consuming and detailed project, and one that will leave a permanent impact on the comic, a cameo Chio will be $150. These commissions will close near the end of April to ensure there is time to design the character and get them into the comic!
