The Hungry Lions
An army marches across the realm of Laurë, under the banner of a Foreign King who has claimed the throne. The fields are aflame as those of the highborn castes burn their fields in his wake, fearful of his wrath. Armies fall beneath his near supernatural power. The huddled survivors curl beneath their ruins, begging for a savior to free them from the Hungry Lions of King Amellen. While they pray, two cloaked riders trot through the blackened and charred wheatfields to a smoking village on the border.
So if you have been noticing on the tapas and webtoons version of this comic, things are a little different. I'm actually restructuring the early narrative a bit. To make time for working on this, I'm skipping this weeks update here and I may reshuffle a bunch of pages and add in a surprise. We'll see.

So this last page was the last page of the old art style. I am going to be phasing out the old artwork and bring in a new style. All new updates will be in this style and the older stuff will look like this as well as I phase them out.
I will also begin dual hosting here and at tapastic. Thanks for your support and I hope you like the new art.

You may have noticed I've slowed down the output of new pages. It isn't because I'm actually producing fewer pages but because I've taken my lessons for drawing, inking, and coloring and begun redrawing the art. I'm catching up quickly and hopefully, in the next few weeks we will be caught up with a fully colored comic.

I'm skipping this week because I've been hard at work at something. It involves Bristol board and inks and pics will follow.

The update will be coming to tomorrow as I'm celebrating my anniversary right now. See you in a few hours.

So with the way work has been going this week I'm thinking I can draw out 5 panels a week that I'm happy with. So this Thursday update is shorter. But don't you worry, I have been busy doing other things. I decided that since I drew the first couple pages over a long period of time, they didn't seem to have a consistent style. So I'm in the middle of redrawing them to be consistent. Look forward to them today and tomorrow.

Releasing the update and I hope you like it. The other half of this week's update will be released on Thursday.
I encourage you to give me feedback. Comments are really helpful, particularly art critiques.

So I'm going to say this, I did not expect the number of views, readers, and fans I'd get in the last few days. This is my first webcomic and I had been prepped by every person to expect no one to notice my comic for weeks. A fact I was perfectly fine with, as I was planning on releasing updates at a steady weekly pace.
But within 4 hours of posting, I had nearly 1,000 views on my comic, over a hundred visitors to my webpage, and now I'm on the front page in the Rising Star section. I'm frankly floored.
So I just went into overdrive to get Chapter 1 done. So much so that I'm going to release some of that next update tomorrow when I get out of work, around 9'oclock EST.
Thank you so much, and I'm glad this has piqued your interest.
