Welcome to Bloom, a Pokemon Conquest Comic

According to the Legend of the Ransei region, if all 17 kingdoms of the region are united, the legendary Pokemon that formed the region would appear. Young Saku, along with her stubborn Axew, sets off on the road of conquest. However, the warlord Nobunaga is only one kingdom away from uniting the region. Can Saku conquer Ransei before he does? ______________ I am constantly improving, so please ignore the bad art at the beginning. >.< Pokemon (c) Nintendo Updates Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Stagnation

Hello lovely readers~

I'm sorry, it appears I've once again failed to maintain regular updates. x_x I'm afraid the ultimate busy-ness of this semester compared to last is definitely getting to me, and I've had to devote the vast majority of my time to homework instead of art. I'll do my best to keep things going when I have free time, but do know that for the next couple of months until my semester is over I will probably be taking a bit more time to focus on academics, and may be missing quite a few updates as a result. I do feel bad my comics have had to take so many breaks the past couple of years, but know that I will do my best to try and maintain regular updates as often as possible.
I also know for sure next week there probably won't be anything for the very exciting reason that I will be traveling to the Game Developer's Conference (GDC) and working there as a Conference Associate. Seeing as I hope to go into the video game industry, it's a very exciting opportunity for me!
But anyway, thank you so much dear Readers for bearing with me and I appreciate your patience as this comic starts to update a little more erratically. Once my first year of college is over, rest assured I'll probably have plenty more time to get lots of art done over the summer (although if I travel there probably won't be updates...but at least I'll actually have the time and ability to draw =P).
Once again, thank you for your patience!

Plug: RedBubble + YouTube

I am finally slowly extending my reach within the internet...

Indeed, I now have a RedBubble store! There's not much yet, but you can now purchase select works on a variety of different products, just in time for holiday shopping season!

I also have a YouTube, where I plan to post time-lapse videos of my artwork, including the occasional Bloom page. You can view those here:

Okay, that's all for my little self-plug. Have a nice day!

New Site Pages!

You may have noticed a number of new site pages cropping up! I've kind of been wanting to add them for a while actually, but I finally had a legitimate excuse (and some added programming knowledge) thanks to my Computer Science class.

So, here's just a brief summary of the pages I've added:

    Characters - a colorful list of all the characters in the comic thus far, complete with fun bios and Pokémon sprites.

    About - a few relevant links to the author's work, and a bit of information on both the author and the comic.

    Trivia - Fun random facts about the comic and the making of it. More trivia will be added for every dollar donated

    Donate - That's right, there's a (rather conspicuous) donate button now! This site page details the rewards you get by donating to Bloom :)

And just a reminder that the Affiliates page still exists as well. There you can see a list of my other comics and affiliated comics. If you have a comic you'd like to affiliate, just pm me.

I don't think I'll add more site pages anytime soon, but I may still go in and polish up some of the ones I've created. Some, like characters and trivia, will update in the future, so check back for more!
I am considering making some modifications to the overall site layout as well to just make it aesthetically more interesting, but I'm not sure whether that'll happen anytime soon either given that trying to modify SmackJeeves site template kind of feels like navigating a maze, and it seems to use multiple coding languages, not all of which I'm well versed in (yet ;) ).
And otherwise, hope you all keep enjoying Bloom~ :D

Brief break, back (for real) soon!

Sooo I'm back! I've actually been back for a while now, ahaha...^^; But since I was on vacation for a long time, I've decided to take a break and dive back into things slowly. This means I'm just going at whatever pace I feel like until school starts again, which means until then my web comics will not be updating regularly and art may be slow or sporadic. I just kind of need a break to take things at a slower pace. Don't worry, I'm still getting things done, I'm just not worrying about deadlines or anything. Bloom will resume regular updates soon (hopefully). Thanks for understanding!

Brief Hiatus

Hello there, dear readers.
I know most of my news posts are hiatus messages...orz
But anyway, this is just a heads up that I am going to be travelling overseas for most of next month and won't really be drawing during that time.
Thanks for your patience!

Update schedule

Just read the bulk of my author's comment here if you haven't already, save me from repeating myself: http://bloomconquest.smackjeeves.com/comics/2198816/chapter-15-friendly-faces-evil-places/

But basically I will do my best to keep up with the regular Wednesday/Saturday update schedule, but be aware I may miss updates due to my packed schedule so just be patient with me as I might not always make updates. ^^; Thanks for understanding!

Temporary hiatus...again

So sorry about this. x_x
Just as I've been trying to settle back into updating regularly, I am drowned up to my neck in artwork...holiday events, leftover requests, a bit for school, and such. And so, I've decided it'll be easier for me to finish it all if I take some time off from my comics to work on the other stuff. I feel really guilty about having another hiatus like this but it definitely won't be as long as the last one and I will try to be back as soon as possible.
Thanks for your patience!

November update schedule

Hey guys!
So sorry about all the delays and whatnot lately. This is to let you all know that this month I'm incredibly busy due to pit orchestra, and I'll be having several rehearsals almost every weekday before the show. oh, and can't forget about Thanksgiving. That's on top of all my other schoolwork and whatnot. So basically, I'm super busy this month. Therefore, November updates are going to be slightly irregular as I work around my schedule. I may miss some updates, or get them in on other days, depending. I'll try to get back to normal once pit is over, and I'll do my best to stay on the normal update schedule even this month, but sometimes I just won't be able to make it so I hope you'll understand.
Thanks so much for your patience!
