Page 42 Flats

October 10th, 2016 at 08:32PM

Hey everyone!
Sorry for the delay on today's page. Karina couldn't get the shaded/final version of the page done on time, so we decided to just post the flats in the meantime.

You can expect an update with the full-coloured version soon!

Have a wonderful week :)

Thanks for not just leaving everyone waiting. The comic looks really good even as a flat. I look foward to chapter 7. Feel free to take your time though, there's very little need to rush :)

So, maybe this is just me, but what is Kat's problem? She's like either completely untrusting or totally fine. There's no middle ground. Malleck was totally evil but then he didn't fuck them over once and he's the best guy ever (whether or not that's true is kind of irrelevant). The pirate is just the biggest douche until he tells her about his childhood dream to find magic, then he's basically her bff (that tried to murder them multiple times). Yeigir has been a long time companion, but FUCK him for choking her when he was possessed or some shit. You can't forgive that kind of thing! (and no, I'm not referring to the ropes, that's a sensible precaution, but based on her expression she's still pissed about it possibly hours after the fact).

weezact7 replied:
That is to say, I find Kat's characterization very inconsistent. The pirate's too, but he doesn't get as much screen time so it's not as blatant. I'm very interested in the world of Aikonia and the lore behind it, but I'm finding the characters in the story proper (vs the prequel in the academy) to be either inconsistent or flat. I'm also having some difficulty with the plot. It seems kind of without point or focus right now, but perhaps that's an effect of the slow pace (which I'm not criticizing because sometimes you just aren't capable of dedicating lots of time to what I assume is not the primary source of income for anyone involved with it.)

She doesn't necessary look angry though. She looks more unsure of what to do. She has to be uncertain about the best decision to make since she is asking for help. In the previous page, she certainly did look angry though. I guess she composed herself... Posted on October 24th, 2016 at 10:52PM

Hamkonia replied:
I'm with hi there on this one. The look on Kat's face isn't that of someone who is furious or betrayed; it is that of someone who is apprehensive and is desperately trying to figure out what should be done next.
Regardless, why are they going to Malleck? The pirate is probably one of the top 10 magic experts in the world, and that's not considering that he is the only one they can talk to without going 4 weeks to find someone. He should have a better understanding. While it looks like they already tried to figure it out with the pirates info it doesn't explain why malleck is their next choice.

I didn't mean to insult or offend anyone, my apologies if I did. I was just speaking my mind, and while I should have given more thought to the way I said it, I had no intention to be condescending or anything. The artists know what they're doing and whatever they do will most likely be fine. I just didn't want to see this comic (which is one of my favorites) fall into oblivion or anything.
Now that I'm thinking about it in depth that will most likely not happen, I've probably just been browsing the comments section too much. I wish I could change some of my comment like should to could and the like...I can see how those things could make me seem rude. Posted on November 2nd, 2016 at 08:17PM

Also can we PLEASE not have Patreon exclusive journal entries?
I'm okay if it is something like a choose your adventure on patreon and normal Aikonia is the results, or if there is a week or 2 lag between them (like GamerCat does)...but I really don't like it when an entire section of a series (or a spinoff) is solely for "premium", especially when the orginal one was free.

Hamkonia replied:
Wait! I have an idea!
When you reach the 250 tier (or maybe 400), release the new jounral entries on normal Aikonia. This will allow you to 1. Raise money for patreon 2. Give people the information they crave even if they don't (I can't say "can't" because it is like 5$) donate. 3. Give those who DO donate the feeling that they are, in fact, getting something big out of it, even if it will become free later on. It's a win-win-win. Please consider this as a way to make both the Patreon people and the free people happy :) Posted on November 9th, 2016 at 12:45AM

Andrew-David replied:
Hey! Thank you for the suggestions :)

Although you have nothing to worry about, we've clearly stated on the Patreon page that the milestone will bring along a new journal series and that series will be available to patrons one month before being posted on the Aikonia website. This just means that non-patrons will be about 4 pages behind our patron supporters, that's all.

Although we like what you suggested and we might use that for some other semi-premium content! Posted on November 9th, 2016 at 02:53AM

Actually, we posted this page on November 4th, 2016. The comic has been on hiatus for 5 months, not "1 or 2 years." We've all been very busy with our personal lives, so working on the 7th chapter of Aikonia is impossible right now, unfortunately, but we've been posting the new journal series on Patreon every Thursday.

As for the game: We've posted several times about it either in blurb entries, on social media, or on our blog throughout the years. It was moved to the back-burner when the comic grew in popularity and became its own thing. We transferred the comic’s ownership to the Aikonia team (Corina, Karina, Ira, and myself) in an attempt to separate it from MADSOFT and not have the company interfere with the comic.

When the Aikonia game project is eventually brought back, MADSOFT will indeed be in charge of developing and publishing it, but it will no longer be what it originally was. The comic is now leading the charge and the game will be based on the comic and its universe, rather than the comic being nothing more than promotional media for the game.

We're sorry that we can't put our lives on pause or magically fix whatever obstacles are in our way for the sake of providing you with *completely free* comics. If you'd like to help us out, supporting us on Patreon would be so much more helpful than complaining. Posted on April 18th, 2017 at 01:10AM

I'm seconding everything that has been said by Andrew-David here. We're all just extremely busy trying to get and 'keep' our lives in a stable place, whether it be via our day jobs, personal responsibilities, and/or managing the gauntlet that is the US government assistance programs -- that last one is specifically only me, though! Things are rough now for everyone and Aikonia will come off hiatus when that has changed for the better.

If any fans and readers would like to keep up with my current happenings, stay in contact with me, or otherwise know what Karina is up to, you can find me at Tumblr @Riftytale .

I've also recently launched a Patreon of my own that gives Patrons early access to my SFW personal/commission art, full-resolution versions, priority updates on gamedev projects, exclusive timelapse videos, and more for as little as $1/month. There's some pretty sweet perks for the higher tiers, as well, though!

Your sheer skill and technique with writing and art and combining the mediums makes it so that you could probably close up Aikonia in 2-4 chapters and then just do Jounrals and have a similar success for quite a while. You are all so amazing. I'm serious. The Journals are EASILY on par with the comic itself. Posted on June 27th, 2017 at 03:14AM Reply

OKAY SO I ordered the Aikonia book in September of 2016 and still no sign of it ever coming in! You can't just steal a person's money like this. I'm just saying Posted on July 6th, 2017 at 03:13PM Reply

Whoa whoa! Why didn't you email or contact us about that sooner? Are you sure the order went through? We usually send out merch within a day or two of the order being placed. Can you send an email to hello@aikoniacomic.com with more details on your order (reciept or Paypal statement, date order was placed, address, name, etc) so we can check our records? Maybe we sent it out and it was lost in the mail or sent it to the wrong address? Posted on July 7th, 2017 at 12:18AM

Hello, it's been a while since I came on here. You guys need time and all, but have you considered asking a friend or fellow artist for a guest comic? That way it isn't just an empty void, but isntead has *something* in the hiatus Posted on September 29th, 2017 at 08:23PM Reply

It's been over a year. Thanks for keeping the website up. Looking forward to Half-Life 3 (Sam). Or Chapter 6 Page 43 of Aikonia. Or Helvetica page 95 (The Doctor called). Or anything. Life is good without the internet.
It would be nice if you just guys just said: We're not planning on continuing this comic.
...Fine. I'll read the journals. Posted on November 2nd, 2017 at 01:49AM Reply

WHAT'S A YEAR???
I actually came on here for the first time in a month. Writing is excellent, art is great...shame things like this happen. At least there are journal entries... Posted on November 2nd, 2017 at 03:31AM

alright, just a question about a page that was part of the prologue. what happened to Jared? is there a specific reason he stopped illustrating after only two pages? Posted on November 2nd, 2017 at 08:37AM Reply

Andrew-David replied:
I'm not sure if we wrote a blurb entry or blog post about that but it's pretty simple actually. After joining the team, some personal stuff came up that kept him really busy. We delayed the comic for a bit so he could get things sorted but, soon after, he decided to throw in the towel.

I'm sure he had his reasons and he felt really bad about it, but we never held that against him! Illustrating Aikonia can be a lot of work and requires a lot of dedication, and we completely understood that he had too much on his plate to stay on board. Sometimes, you just have to try something before you realize it's not for you! Posted on November 2nd, 2017 at 02:11PM

Even if you are only doing journal entries for the time being, you guys are amazing.

Soo, is this comic dead? I'd rather it not be and I know life is more important, but it has been over a year now... Posted on February 11th, 2018 at 08:09AM Reply

Yeah, I looks pretty dead, or at the very least abandoned. The last journal page was posted like 2 months ago.
They do have a Patreon Page, but i don't know how often they update there.
But even so, I don't see how you can grow a community when there is complete silence.
I understand that the creators have other projects, or stuff to do, but at least they could have the common curtecy to inform us. If you have to take a break tell is, if you don't plan on continuing the project, at least have the decency to finally kill it. Posted on February 12th, 2018 at 11:01PM

Like the person above me said, I'd appreciate it if you guys actually told us outright that you don't care about this anymore, instead of leaving us hoping in vain for a new page or journal entry.

I just discovered this comic and read them all over the course of two days. I was wondering if the comic was dead after seeing the dates on the last few updates, I guess I've found my answer. I really do hope it comes back. I've very much enjoyed it so far and I'd love to see where it goes. Posted on March 23rd, 2018 at 06:20PM Reply

I’m really sad that this is pretty much dead. Guess I’ll check up again in another few years to see if it’s been revived. Posted on March 24th, 2018 at 01:43PM Reply

Hi! I just started reading this comic and have one suggestion to webpage:
change in <div class=comic_navigation> <a href=http://aikoniacomic.com/page/1> to
<div class=comic_navigation> <a href=http://aikoniacomic.com/page/1#parchment_top>
it will allow to skip scrolling top menu for readers after changing comic page. Posted on September 17th, 2018 at 06:28PM Reply
