Sketch Wednesday: Tolio, Leah, and Geedey? published on No Comments on Sketch Wednesday: Tolio, Leah, and Geedey?

This week’s Sketch Wednesday was a tie between Tolio and Leah with Geedey trailing… So I decided to just include all of them. Why not, I make the rules! You can vote to pick the next subject, and hopefully it won’t be a tie this time!

If you want to get ahead on Follower pages during this off week, you can join the Chio Club and read advance pages before anyone else! Check out the information at chio.club to find out more!

Chio Club Update: New Goals!

Chio Club Update: New Goals! published on No Comments on Chio Club Update: New Goals!

Hey there! This is a post for everyone to talk about what we’re hoping to achieve with some new Chio Club goals. If you enjoy Follower, please take a peek at this post to see some of what we’ve got in store! If you don’t know what the Chio Club is, you can find out more about it on this page.

What we want to do

Basically: we want to improve the websites that Messenger and Follower live on. They’ve been the same for quite a few years, and could use some upgrades both visually and functionally. In addition to this, most of the earlier chapters’ pages were posted at a lower resolution and smaller size. We want to modernize the sites, and add bigger, clearer, higher-resolution pages for your reading enjoyment.

Just an example of how much bigger we’ll be able to make the new pages with these changes! The rest of the site will get a facelift, too.

So what’s the goal change?

The change is, that in addition to our previous goal of just updating the websites, it seems feasible to do some other small art tweaks to the comic pages while we’re in the process of re-exporting them at a bigger, better size. Most of these changes will include re-lettering, so that everything is cohesive through the whole comic. Some artwork might get tweaked a little to make it look nicer, especially on old pages. Small adjustments here and there throughout.

Why?

Well, why not? Time-wise, it seems reasonable to accomplish all of these things together, and it also puts us just a little closer to another long-term goal of ours: collecting Follower into a Volume 1 book, complete with side stories and other extras.

How do we get there?

I’ve set the bar at $100/month in total Chio Club pledges to be able to start this project, and we’re already about a third of the way there. You can follow the progress of this goal at the top of the Follower site, on the Chio Club page, our Patreon page, or our Ko-Fi page. (Gumroad doesn’t have a way to display this easily.)

All you have to do is pledge an amount of your choosing via one of the Chio Club sites – Patreon, Ko-Fi, or Gumroad. In return, you’ll get advance access to new comic pages, works in progress as they’re made, and depending on your pledge level, things like comic PDFs and other rewards.

It’s really high time to bring the Messenger and Follower sites into the current century, and make everything a little more accessible and readable. You can make it happen just by joining the Chio Club!
