All the Cameras in the last panel look at her butt.
About the lack of Participation:
Perhaps you are giving us too much Fan Service, so there is little left to draw?
Perhaps the storyline got a bit to serious? I don't mind serious, but those that draw might find it overshadows the sexy.
What the heck?
First of all, the quality of your work is decreasing. Both writing and drawing. Did you even looked how you drew the character in todays update?
Second: why the heck did Demarchese won for fanart? He drew like a child and used an overused catchphrase. There was better artwork in the gallery!
And third: maybe there was less participation because your story-arc got boring a long time ago? Generally it's an effort to read it, and thats not the way it should be.
Indeed, I didnt looked at it, as I did not draw it, I just reused some old stripes cause i had too much fever to draw, and it was that, or no strip at all for this week. :P
Second: He won because nobody else presented anything better on time, and Ritualist had already the Fanfic prize. This year`s entries are just the last 4, and sadly, only two of them made it on time.
Third: Thats totally true. Its long, boring, difficult to understand and it looks senseless, but i cant do it better. I am illustrator and designer, the script part is my weak point, and my scriptman dissapeared more than three years ago.
I will try something new when this arc is over, though.
If script is your weak part...
Why not hold a contest or something to become a writer for Eatatau?
Especially if you announce that you want writers familiar with writing for a certain setting on /tg/, which is absolutely crawling with excellent writefa-authors.
It's a shame about the slowdown from the fans, Darius. I desire wholeheartedly you don't lose hope and keep on the good work. You are one of the only 3 wh40k webcomics that are updating regularly, and Servants of The Imperium had just tipped us its hat and is ready to leave the scene.
First: get well soon. That's messed up.
I'm trying really, really hard not to make a "in Japan Rape is the best medicine!" joke, but I can feel it gestating in my brain.
Second: yeah I should have submitted something. It's not personal or any lack of affection for Eatatau; I didn't do _anything_ in December (I did however get fired from my job =P).
Third: you do all the factions proud, and that's something to be proud of (I've been re-reading the Night Lords series by ABD, and goddamn the Eldar are stupid-by-necessity in what's an otherwise above-average trilogy).
ADB's a Black Library professional writer, one of their best, and even he can't do the setting the kind of overall justice that you do regularly.
The Nyds, the Elfdar, -the fight's too close to call. Nobody's got Spess Mehrine plot armor, and that's damn good.
Maya is waayyy to expensive for me.
I model in Silo 2.0 and texture in 3Dcoat while program morphs and animaties in poserpro 2014.
I know Maya and its probably a beter choice for this stuff......but i'm poor....Well....not rich.
I made a tau too for the contest.
But wasn't happy with the result so gave him a nose and ears....Now he's a dark elf.
