Hey all,
I'd be very grateful if you'd take a look at my webcomic, Kairos.
Heeeres the blurb!

Kairos: The Heart of Time is a fantasy webcomic following the adventures of Amelia, a bad-tempered teenager and her pug, Gertrude. Amelia stole her father’s time machine (a modified Vespa) after an argument, but soon became lost in time when she discovered it was more difficult to drive than she thought. She and Gerty have just escaped an angry Elizabethan mob – where will they end up next?

I've just started out so I'd love some feedback. Currently it's updating a page a week, but I'm not sure that this is enough to keep readers interested? I'm also looking at overhauling the website (especially the portfolio section and background images - suddenly I'm not so in love with paper textures any more...).

You can find it at www.heartoftime.co.uk.

Previews:




The comic switches to B+W after the prologue, which looks like this:


Thanks for stopping by Smile

[EDIT: the name has now been changed due to it matching another comic - now it's just "The Heart of Time"]

Cheers, you too! I'm going to wait a bit before applying as I'm not sure I quite qualify for the amount of updates yet...

Thank you so much!! Hopefully when I can I'm going to add colour to every page, in this mystical future when I have free time ;_;

No updates this week sorry, have to do an animation test for work!! Scary scary...

Thanks Smile It's a wordpress theme - sliding doors I think? Took ages to customize, man I hate CSS!!!

New page is finally up - sorry about the silence! Passed that animation test which is great now I'm employed, but it means I've been crazy busy... hopefully I'll be able to update regularly now though. http://www.heartoftime.co.uk/newest

That's fine work and a fun read so far.

Pages are kinda slow to load (and sometimes didn't complete, I had to click reload) but I guess that's due to time of day, Saturday evening internet slowdown.

Gotta admit I was slightly disappointed when the color pages turned to B/W, simply because the color pages were so nice-looking. Time constraints dictate these things, I guess. But I couldn't help but wonder how Arthur and Letitia looked in color. Maybe something to consider if and when you update the About page! Just an idea. Smile Good luck with it.

PS - I clicked on your sigline pic, whose URL doesn't work ("Sorry, the website www.theheartoftime.co.uk cannot be found.") Consider PM'ing a request to wendyw to update the URL to http://www.heartoftime.co.uk

Hi, thanks for checking it out Smile Yeah, I use photobucket to host my images, and it tends to be pretty slow - I might host them from my site instead and see if that speeds things up!

I started the first chapter in black and white because I was getting used to the schedule of producing a page every week, and it was a lot faster to produce. Now I'm nearing the end of the chapter and I'm desperate to start the next one in colour! Hopefully everything will be in colour from then on if I can manage it, and I'll probably go back and colour this chapter if I have time in the future.

Thanks again, I'll fix the link too!

Chapter one is now COMPLETE! There may be a little break before chapter 2 starts because of birthday/glastonbury/workdeadlines/convention madness, but should be back to normal soon Smile
