So obviously, this pic is wayyyy out of season, but it was a requested bonus content, so here we are! I wanted to have the same feeling as an old pic I once drew, called "Of better times" so it may seem similar to long time PA fans. And as NeilKapit recommended, I styled the bathing suits to channel the girl's personalities :)

In other news, my Wacom Mobile Studio Pro tablet died from a known Wacom defect after only one year of ownership. Bottom line? Wacom devices are crap--every device of theirs I've owned had issues. Pen tech is great, but not worth the bad hardware and price tag. So I might try the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen or go back to Surface (my Gen 1 Surface Pro is STILL running, btw...outlasted the damn Wacom)

All that to say I'm definitely pushing back the Book 3 stuff to Dec. Upcoming content with estimated dates:

5 Dec: "Previously..." (Book 1/2 recap)
12 Dec: Alliance Chart
19 Dec: Book 3 Cover
26 Dec: Book 3 title page
2 Jan: Resumption of normal comic pages

If I can get up and running in Nov I'll post the remaining bonus content to-do list then!

Aw maaan I'm sorry about your tablet trouble! I've noticed with Wacom like...their more expensive products are not as good it seems as their cheaper ones. My intuos tablet has been through the ringer and really pulled through for me when my cintiq chord pooped out X_X

Anyways I wish you luck with getting the new equipment! I love this picture! I WISH THESE GIRLS COULD HAVE HAPPY TIMES LIKE THIS RIGHT NOW! X"D

I wish I could say that! My Intuos suffered from the SAME PROBLEM (bad port connections). You'd think that in a 10 year span, they'd fix that. But no, based on some research it's still a common problem. I hope yours lasts!!

I did get a new Surface Pro, and I gotta say...the software updates they made make the pen feel the same as ~2016 Wacom tech, which honestly is more than good enough for me. I actually felt like the newest Wacom pens were a bit TOO sensitive so I'm quite happy with the new buy ^_^ Definitely worth looking at if you're interested in a mobile art device!

Ohhh very interesting! I got lucky I guess with my Intuos haha WEELL to be fair I'm not using it's original chord..... Lol I think the chord I use is my phone's old charging cable X"D


A surface pro, huh? Hmmm I'm gonna definitely do some research in that. As long as I can keep my programs I'll be happy!

Well done! But will they ever all get together for fun again in the story? It's not looking very likely!

Sorry about your tablet dying. :( I've never actually used a tablet for art. That seems like it could be really intuitive, but I'd be so afraid to lay down that kind of money and then not be able to wrap my head around it.

Hmm come to think of it, did they ever get together for fun? XD

I can't imagine managing the time or resources without the use of digital art--I just found paper to be so much more time consuming and then I had paper piles growing (chapters 1-3 were ink on paper). Which is why I find it even more astounding how quickly you update! Seriously, dunno how you do it with real life and family!

hahaha don't be ashamed, DLK! I work around enough dudes to know it's totaly natural XD And I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I've considered making a calendar for each of the girls AND guys of PA in some classy pin ups, like evening wear, formal military attire, etc :) But alas I don't think I'll get around to that this year. One day!

if you do make the calendar, let us know. I'm sure you will have a market for them!!!!

It'd probably be digital only, but we'll see!

Love this, makes me miss the beach! I'm definitely Christina, androgynous and covered up even in the hot Summertime. :3

I'm missing the warmth of summer too! And it's always nice to hear people can relate to one of the girls, so thank you :)
