Welcome to Magical Renegades

(Full title: Magical Renegades ~ Anathema to Commonsense) In The State of Confusion, rival time travelers in rival factions cause a power struggle to escalate to the point of putting the fate of the space-time continuum at stake! The Magical Renegades, whom are best described as rebels without a clue, must fight the League of Paine, and all while preventing another collapse of the space-time continuum! The Magical Renegades have a lot of catching up to do to challenge the League of Paine's power, since its leader stole one of the most powerful magical weapons of them all. Follow the tale of our "heroes" who don't know the odds stacked against them, or just don't care! Sometimes, power isn't everything. Sometimes, a *ahem* "hero" must think outside of the box even if it means going against commonsense!


Update 7/23

July 23rd, 2017, 12:28 pm

Magical Renegades was on hiatus for part of May, and resumed updating at the start of July. I checked back here to see that my banner and background weren't displaying anymore, and I'm extremely annoyed that Photobucket changed their terms so that anyone who wants to link their images anywhere has to sign up for their most expensive plan. I need to find a better option to host images on.

I'll continue to update Magical Renegades here on SmackJeeves, though this page will look like an eyesore littered with notices to upgrade until I find a better image hosting option. In the meantime, you can also go the page on Tapastic, because it doesn't have this problem: https://tapas.io/series/magical-renegades

Hiatus update 6/11/17

June 11th, 2017, 11:24 am

Magical Renegades has been on hiatus for about a month, and I've been spending that time building up a page buffer while adjusting to going back to work full-time.

Up to page 106 is finished, and the next 5 pages after it are in the process of being colored and shaded. My goal is to at least get all of chapter 4 finished before resuming updates. Chapter 4 will end on page 108, so I'm mostly there towards meeting that goal. Adjusting to working full-time again, I'm having to assess how much time and energy I can spend working on Magical Renegades during the week each day. The hiatus doesn't have a set end date yet, but should be within the next few weeks, because I need to make sure I have enough of a page buffer built up when getting out of hiatus that I can continue to update each week. Thanks for your patience, readers! I neglected posting my twitter account because I've been too busy with my job, and working on the next pages because I want to get out of hiatus as soon as I can.

Current progress:

Uploaded: Up to page 84
Sketched: Up to page 93
Thumbnailed: Up to page 93

During this year, I finished chapter 2, started and finished chapter 3, and started chapter 4.

Since I started the final version of Magical Renegades, this is the first year I've been able to update it regularly, doing so nearly every week. I aim to do better for 2017 and to spend more time networking with others. I had ambitions for a Patreon campaign or to take commissions this year, but had to put it on hold to ensure that I could update consistently first without taking a hiatus. I've had the time to prepare the campaign and hope to launch it for 2017.

Broken images

October 13th, 2016, 9:08 pm

At this time, the background, header, and menu images aren't appearing. I didn't make any changes to them, but none of them are loading in Photobucket. This may be a temporary issue, or I may have to find a new image host. I apologize that the page looks like an eyesore right now. :(

Started chapter 3, and revamps!

May 5th, 2016, 7:06 pm

Finally started chapter 3! The banner above was recently revamped to correct a few errors, and to account for character design changes that were made after the banner was originally made. Pages 1-7 have been updated with some minor character design changes and corrections to backgrounds or anatomy. Pages 8-16 are in progress now, with some larger changes, but these changes shouldn't impact the update schedule.

Progress 5/16/2015

Current progress:
Uploaded: p.27 (chapter 1 finished!)
Finished: up to p.30
Digital WIP: up to p.34

The blog project which I had mentioned at the end of last year is finally up, and the Blog link has been updated to include the new link.

I also updated the information about the character classes on the Settings page, which had been way out of date.

Progress 5/5/2015

Current progress:
Uploaded: p.24
Finished: up to p.27
Digital WIP: up to p.34
Sketched: up to p. 37
Thumbnailed: up to p.39

Sadly, real life got in the way of making much, or any progress over the past few months. However, most of the progress that I did make since the update I made on 12/24, was made in the past 2 weeks, and I feel like I'm able to get back to writing and drawing again.

How much more progress can I make for 2014?

December 30th, 2014, 12:28 pm

At this rate, it doesn't look like I'll get all of chapter 1 finished by 12/31/2014 23:59. I overestimated myself, because I'm often so drained after getting home from work, that I barely feel like I can draw. I do have today, and tomorrow off from work, and I'll get as much done as I can. Most of the time I draw is on my days off.

I got the new banner up today, and am also working on a new blog, where I'll write about my experiences with writing this comic, write about old concepts, and what didn't make the cut. Think of this upcoming blog as being the director's cut of the comic!

Also in progress is a new site banner, which I also hope to have up by the start of 2015. I just might meet my goal of having all of chapter 1 finished by the end of the year!
