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!
For more details and terms, as well as other commission opportunities, please check out my shiny new Commiss.io page!
Don’t forget, there’s no Follower this week! But there will be next week!
In the meantime, you can join us on our Imzy group for a more forum-like experience, or on Telegram!
You can also subscribe to us on Patreon, and for as little as $1 a month you’ll get access to behind-the-scenes development materials and early pages. You’ll also help guarantee the continued production of the comic! Currently, patrons can check out some of my planning work for the next chapter!
We may be opening up spots soon for a create-your-own Chio sponsorship for this next chapter, so if you’ve ever been interested in creating a custom Chio/Vloxen character that will actually appear in the comic, keep an eye out here! Once we sort out the details, an information post will be going up.
Thanks for your continued readership, and we’ll be back with new stuff next Wednesday!
