"Avibus" Hiatus|Guest Art Submissions! by LotMinx
September 13th, 2018, 10:59 pm
Hey guys!

Ten pages left of Chapter Six as Book One draws to a close, which means the comic will be going on (official) hiatus after the last page goes up on October 19th. It’s a little later than I originally planned, but this means the hiatus won't be as long as I'd originally thought it might be.

Book Two will begin with a tentative-yet-pretty-sure date of January 4th with the cover reveal and Page 1. I don’t want you guys to be left with nothing, though, during November and December, so I have a few extras planned such as character sheets and the like that I will be posting in place of pages.

And that's not ALL I want to do! Beginning today, I am accepting submissions for guest art posts to go up alongside extras on the main hosting site and Tapas!

"Avibus" isn't that big of a title, I know, but I figured now is as good a time as any to open guest spots for the first time.

Submissions Guidelines are as follows:
- The typical standard: Your submission must include at least one character from the “Avibus” cast. However!
- It MUST be a character that has already appeared in the main series so far! There are a few people who have seen concepts from later but I’d rather not show these characters until they appear on-page...
- OCs are okay as long as you follow rule one.
- Submissions must be Safe For Work!
- You can use any medium (i.e. digital or traditional/scanned) so long as you send me an image file that's a minimum of 900x1350 pixels. JPEG is preferred, but PNG is acceptable.
- If you want me to link to any sites or portfolios, please include the links and descriptions thereof in the body of the email when you submit your attached image file.
- Written submissions are acceptable! In fact, I may just doodle a couple illustrations to go with the good parts~
Just send any written pieces--NO LONGER than 1000 words--to me and I'll format them into proper image files. I'm not expecting any unwieldy amount of submissions this time.

I'll accept submissions through October 19th. Email to mistress0minx@gmail.com. That's a zero, not an 'O' ;)

Thanks for reading~

Happy Birthday "Avibus"! (and Guest Submissions) by LotMinx
August 23rd, 2018, 9:35 am
"Avibus" is now four years old!
(yesterday)

With this fourth birthday, I have a few announcements to make for the future of the comic and my plans for it over the next few months:

To start; Book One is almost over!

I know I've said something before about having already finished a 'part one' of the story with the end of Chapter Five, but that didn't actually turn out to be the case. While I did mean it at the time, I hadn't yet finished my full reevaluation of where the story was going in the next stretch.

Can you tell this is a very seat-of-pants written series?

So, in truth, Chapter Six is going to mark the end of "Avibus", Book One. What does this mean?

Well, it means a Hiatus.

The comic will be going on a temporary break after the end of the chapter while I gear up for Book Two. The second book is much more tightly plotted, much more efficiently planned out, than the first and will require a brief break to make sure I have everything ironed out enough to get started.

I plan to post the last thirteen pages of chapter six at a rate of two per week, making up for the frequent delays over the past few months, which will close out the chapter at the end of September. After which, starting in October, "Avibus" will be on hiatus until the start of Book Two.
I don't want it to be a ghost town around here, though, during that time, so I will be posting the occasional extra materials related to the comic.
(and finishing the character page, I swear)
Along with that;

I will be opening submissions for guest art!

In lieu of pages, I'd like to post guest pieces among the extra sketches I'll be doing.
Submissions will open on September 1st and run throughout the month. I'll post another announcement and provide more details about image requirements, where to send them, and the hiatus itself at that time.

Thanks for reading!

Hey guys,
Sorry to say that there won't be a page for "Avibus" today while I catch up on some commission work.

In the meanwhile, you can take a look at my other comic, Saints'Quarter, if you haven't already, or check out one of these awesome series:

SPIRE
Mias & Elle
West
How to be a Werewolf
Sister Claire
Wilde Life
Patrik the Vampire

We'll be back with page 149 next Friday!

Slight Delay by LotMinx
March 16th, 2018, 9:25 am
Hey guys!

Sorry to say that this week's page of "Avibus" will be a little late. I ran into a bit of a hiccup scheduling wise while moving things around work.
I plan to have it up by the end of the day, tomorrow at the latest, and the following page will go up for Patreon patrons before Monday.

Thanks for your patience and sorry for the wait.

Page Delay (again...) by LotMinx
November 10th, 2017, 8:15 am

Hey guys!







So yeah, the next page of "Avibus" is going to be a day or two late.
I've had to focus on a couple commissions I've been letting slide in my limited time off of work this week, and the next page--two pages, honestly--is a bit of a time-consuming layout.


The pages will go up once I can finish them, which, again, should be in no more than a couple days, and I'll hopefully be able to jump a bit ahead in work to get the Patreon Feed back ahead as well.







In the meanwhile, if you haven't already taken a look at it, I do have another webcomic available to read!







Saints'Quarter is an urban horror-fantasy series about the supernaturally saturated neighborhood of the name and the lives of the people who live there.
There are witches, slayers, mysterious guys with semi-sentient tattoos, weird mothlike pixie things, and a cat!


Oh, and you know, maybe a mystery or two, some drama, and lots of personal baggage...







http://saintsquarter.smackjeeves.com







It's even got a new cast page! I'll make one for "Avibus", too, soon, I swear...

I Haven't Forgotten You, I Promise! by LotMinx

Hey guys!

First, I'm gonna open with an "I'm sorry" about the delay on new "Avibus" pages. I'm still catching back up on the backlog of work I let pile up during August and September...

Second, I'm gonna say that the next page, page 127, is going to be going up over the weekend!
From there, we'll be back on weekly updates as normal until the current chapter ends!

And third, I have an announcement in the form annoyingly plugging my new shop on Redbubble:
http://redbubble.com/people/LotMinx
There are already some familiar AND new prints and accessories available! More will be added throughout the month from inktober designs and other artwork!

Sorry again for the delay, guys.
Thanks for bearing with me.

In the meanwhile, I have a new vlog/time-lapse painting available on YouTube:

If you'd like to drop in for a watch and snicker at my brother and I acting like idiots in the audio.
Also, there's a cat in it.

Page Delay (126) by LotMinx
September 15th, 2017, 11:43 am
Hey guys!

Sorry to say it, but page 126 of "Avibus" is going to be a touch delayed due to my being occupied with finishing up a commission.

The page will go up as soon as it's completed. In the meanwhile, WIPs will be available as I can work on it for $1+ patrons.
