Chapter 8, Final Artwork Completed!

As always, it feels weird to reach this point. But this time I don't have much time to think about the production that lies behind me because the production of Chapter 9 will start as soon as possible! The production budget is secured and I want to provide you Chapter 9 as soon as possible. When you read Chapter 8, you'll know why. :)

As for the release date, I can't commit to a fixed date just yet because the translations are still edited AND Chapter 8 will launch on a completely revamped website. I'm still working on it although the majority of tasks is already accomplished. Most of the adjustments won't be directly visible to the visitors of the website as they are "under the hood" and simply make my life easier when it comes to updating and maintaining the content. However, there's one major new feature of the upcoming website update that will add a whole new layer of content to wormworldsaga.com.

In my next update I'll announce the launch date of Chapter 8. Until then I'll leave you with the final preview image of this production.

Chapter 8, Milestone 3 has been reached!

This was a fast one! Milestone 3 took me exactly 3 weeks or 15 days to complete. The next two milestones should more or less fall into the same category so we should begin to mentally prepare for an April release of Chapter 8!

It feels good to finally be on track again! Today I've finished the second milestone of Chapter 8 and it was about time to reach that point. The last milestone had been reached 3 months ago and I was beginning to feel nervous about the progress of Chapter 8 although I knew exactly what caused this delay.

In November the fulfillment of the last kickstarter campaign took much too much time from my production schedule and when I had finished the main bulk of that work, I had already decided that I wanted to produce the Christmas Special. The last third of December was eaten up by the Holidays and I was able to start my work on the second milestone not earlier than January.

My original plan was to finish the milestone in January but it turned out that it contained a lot of complicated artwork. The protagonists are leaving the big city and I want it to be a proper farewell with lots of majestic vistas. I worked nearly 140 hours on this milestone which comes close to the 160-hours-monster-milestone of Chapter 6. However, the rest of the chapter is promising to be finished much faster. There's still plenty of ambitious imagery ahead but it's going to be nature scenes (and some of them quite dark) which will take much less time then the detailed cityscapes I commited to in my depiction of Kingspeak. I'm really relieved that the story moves on to new sceneries now. Painting architecture is exhausting. Everything has to be in perspective and you can't be as sloppy in the details as you can be in nature scenes. Still I'm going to miss the narrow alleys of Kingspeak. Of course we will see more of it in later chapters but this will be more like short spotlights. The big exploration of the city is over. I guess it will be fun to return to the chapters 6, 7 and, 8 now and then to dive back into this place.

I hope to finish the third milestone before the end of this month.

Today I've finished the preliminary version of Chapter 9 of The Wormworld Saga. That's right, this time there's no kickstarter campaign or Christmas Special eating up my time. Production of Chapter 9 will begin on Monday! And I set myself an ambitious goal: I want to finish the production before the end of August. So, if everything goss according to my plan, you'll be reading Chapter 9 in less than 4 months. And the title of the new chapter is going to be:

Chapter 9 - The Dark Minions

Now you've got something to look forward to in the late Summer. If you're curious about the production, you'll get weekly production previews on The Wormworld Saga Patreon Page. From 1st June on you can also win original artwork when you become a patron of The Wormworld Saga!

Getting ready for the launch of Chapter 8 took me a bit longer this time, especially because the new chapter will be released on a completely revamped version of the website. But now I'm ready to do the final layout work and next Sunday it's finally going to happen:

Chapter 8 will be launched on May 1st, at 9pm German time. 

As always I've activated a countdown on the website so that you can easily find out at what time the release will happen in your timezone. I'm really looking forward to the release and I hope to see you around on Sunday!

Dear Patrons, today I'm happy to welcome the 100th patron here on Patreon!
