I decided to take a line of dialogue out of this page since it changed the tone of what’s happening. Something bad is happening. It shouldn’t be made light of. But yeah, we are in NSFW territory again. Because, nipple.
I am ecstatic that we have been moving along so well with Nicoy at the drawing helm! We are still maintaining a bi-weekly update rotation as it stands right now. Donators get a week early release of the sketch pages and the completed pages. At the end of the month, donators get the compiled PDF of the current chapter. If you want to help off-set the costs, please consider donating to my Ko-Fi or to my Patron!
I also write Song of Asteria which updates off-set to Salient Caligation on a bi-weekly schedule as well. If you were unaware, I also wrote something for Starship Moonhawk / Cosmic Feline that was recently animated, Surrender. I am also on the writing team for two other episodes in that particular animation trilogy. Give it a look! Any support would be greatly appreciated!
Salient Caligation updates next on Jan 23, 2019. =)
Of all the languages to use for Moira’s magic, I chose Greek. I wanted something that I didn’t commonly see used in horror movies or books. Most authors pick Latin as their casting language. I originally used a font called Miskatonic for Caitlin’s spells but I think with her heritage, it would be better for her to cast in Chinese.
There is still a lot to learn about Moira and her background. This chapter is an important moment in her life. Magical things can happen at crossroads and journeys always take unexpected turns.
I sat on this script for several years, waiting for Chapter 1 to complete. Before I moved back to the United States, I decided that I would draw the conclusion of Chapter 1 myself. My friend, Zairyo has been working on improving his techniques to draw Chapter 1 for years now but, I wanted closure on the issue. I got stalled myself with moving across the ocean from Japan and starting college courses again. But, I made a good attempt at drawing Chapter 2. I even scheduled it on my Google Calendar to update on Wednesdays. When I started Graduate school, I got overwhelmed between work and school to keep up my updates and stopped at page 6.
To be honest, I deviated from my own script a bit. I like to think that I made a good attempt! But I am quite please with the pages that my friend, Nicoy Guevarra has created from the original script! I am continually please and impressed with Nicoy’s work, She sets a deadline and a schedule and keeps to it. She is easy to work with and I look forward to continuing to work with her. If you noticed, Nicoy is the artist for my other comic, Song of Asteria and she is one of our community artists on Shattered Universe!
If you are interested in seeing Salient Caligation update once a week, please consider donating through the Ko-Fi link to the left or through Patreon for access to early page updates. If you are looking for an artist to commission for projects, please consider contacting Nicoy. =)
Here is the cover inspired by the 8 of Swords featuring Moira, as drawn by Nicoy Guevarra based from my original cover of Chapter 2! She is also drawing my other comic project: The Song of Asteria which updates weekly in full color (because there is more funding for it). For those just joining, welcome to Salient Caligation! Those returning might recognize these new pages. =) The next update is 18 Oct! Patrons get a 1 week early release of the newest updates.
