Chapter 7, Milestone 4 reached!

I'm happy to announce that I've reached the next milestone in the Chapter 7 final illustration production. 80% of the artwork is done now and I'm coming really close to the finish line.

There really isn't anything more to say at this point. I'm working very concentrated on Chapter 7 and my plan is to finish the illustrations in the first week of April. However, text editing is a bit behind schedule so I can't really commit to a release date yet.

The illustrations of this milestone really made me hungry and my preview image will show you why:

That's it for now. See you at the 100% mark!

Chapter 7, Milestone 3 reached!

I'm making steady progress with Chapter 7. Today I've reached the third milestone of the final artwork production and this means that now 60% of the chapter is illustrated.

I really enjoyed this milestone a lot because it happens to contain a lush green garden which really was a joy to paint from all sorts of camera angles. One artwork I particularly enjoyed is an oversized background of which different portions are used in several panels. Here it is:

I really had a lot of fun painting this and all the other backgrounds that make up this location. So, this is a little bonus preview of Chapter 7 but I also owe you a proper preview image with actual panel artwork. There are not a lot of panels I can share from this milestone because there are spoilers in almost all of them. If you are especially eager to see more previews (also without spoilers), please consider to subscribe to The Attic where each milestone update comes with 3 preview images. Yes, there are already 9 preview images of Chapter 7 available in The Attic!

Ok, so here's today's preview image:

And there's another announcement I'm happy to make: As of today you can finally buy the first English Wormworld Saga book at the Wormworld Shop!

Volume 1 of the Wormworld Saga print edition contains the first three chapters of the Wormworld Saga in English language and you'll also find a 'Making Of' section, a sketchbook and a fan art gallery in it. All books shipped from the Wormworld Shop are signed, stamped with the red Wormseal stamp and we put one of the brand new 'Trusted Blade' bookmarks into each package. 

I'm diving back into production mode now. I'm eager to finish the new chapter as soon as possible!
