News Regarding Updates

Hey everyone, I have some news regarding OBT! Due to the popularity of eeveelution-exclusive comics, I have decided that OBT should become one of them! Behold, the new designs for Rune and Malachi:



Okay okay, jokes aside (yes that was a joke please don't take it seriously), I am a little bummed to bring the news to you all that OBT will be put on a working hiatus for a while. Some of you may have noticed that I've been struggling to update OBT, and that's mostly due to a mix of school, stress, and some tough financial situations I've been going through.

See, as it currently stands, I'm teetering dangerously close to dropping out of college as I'm not able to afford it, and can't take any loans out to help pay for it. I've talked with some financial aid counselors about the situation, and they said that if I manage to raise a couple hundred dollars by the beginning of January, I can try and register for spring term classes. My normal work is able to cover about half of this cost, but the other half right now is undetermined. As a result, I've been taking as many shifts as I can at work, desperately scraping together what money I can to stay in school. I want to focus on making enough money to survive, and OBT right now is a distraction from that, especially without a buffer. I love the comic to bits, but I have to prioritize right now.

On its working hiatus, OBT will still update on Patreon, though weekly updates might be a bit watery. Patrons will still be given their usual rewards (such as postcards, speedpaints, trivia, art giveaways), and overall I'll still be doing what I can during the hiatus. OBT will return once I get the buffer up to at least 10 pages! Which sounds like it'll take a long time, but I'll do what I can to work as quickly as possible. I can't say for sure when we'll be back, but the hope is sometime before February of next year. Ideally I'd like to be back mid-December, but depending on how much work I get it can vary.

If you'd like to help me with my financial situation, and want to keep seeing content for OBT during the hiatus, consider supporting me on Patreon! Other ways you can support me are through commissions and Ko-Fi. I'm going to be doing a holiday icon request stream that utilizes Ko-Fi later today, and commissions will be going on sale December 1st. Any and all support is appreciated, though if you can't help me monetarily, I get just as much enjoyment from reading the comments you all leave on my comic. You guys mean a lot to me, and I can't wait to see you all again soon.

Keep up your amazing work :)
I always look forward to your comic, It has an awesome art style, and interesting storyline...

I hope you can get the money for the collage course you are taking, I will attempt to assist a bit, and i hope that while going throught this time you enjoy everything you do and with as little stress as possible...

Others would probably agree with me, but we would rather see you not burn out because you are trying to streatch yourself to far... Take your time and enjoy...

Sorry to hear about your situation, Woo. Definitely focus on getting that resolved first. Your education is way more important, so keep up the good work on that end and come back here when you're able to. That's all I can ask of you. KEEP IT UP!
