PMD: On Borrowed Time

Latest Comic:
Delay!
Delay!

A painted sunset stretches across the sky of a cool summer evening, and the world is dying. Only Malachi, a partially evolved Shinx appointed by "Maelstrom", is able to help save it. Though, when he finds a mute Alolan Vulpix he names Rune cast out in the sea, he finds they may be involved in something much greater, much larger, and much more sinister than either of them bargained for. Based on a PMD: Explorers of Sky Nuzlocke. Updates Thursdays!

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.

No Update This Week

Hey everyone! I wanted to let you know that the next page of OBT is currently on hold until I complete my current round of antibiotics, which have left me feeling very ill and weak. Usually, I have some buffer pages for cases like this, but after school stress combined with some family emergencies, I ended up using the last of it recently. Currently I'm struggling just to manage school alone, and I don't want to push myself too far with other activities. Thankfully I complete this round of antibiotics in just a few days, so next week I should be updating as usual again. Don't worry, this shouldn't be a hiatus! I apologize again for the inconvenience, and I hope to make it up to you all very soon!

New Redbubble Design (and Announcement)!

Hey all! I wanted to announce that for the next two weeks (until October 15th), my Inktober Day 1 drawing, Daisy Chain, is available on Redbubble! Every 2 weeks I'll be posting a new inktober drawing on Redbubble, so be sure to get these limited-time designs while you can! If you want to see other drawings as i finish them, I'm posting them daily on my Patreon for $5+ patrons! On November 1st though, they'll all be removed, so come and see them while you can!

Speaking of Patreon, I'm getting ready to order postcards for my October $10+ patrons! If you want a limited-edition postcard, be sure to sign up by the 5th since that's when I'm ordering the cards! $10+ patrons get other perks like speedpaint videos and early pages, so there's a lot of content available if you decide to sign up!

OBT Returns August 9th! (+Patreon integration)

Hey everybody! I've finally gotten around to completing the 5+ page buffer for Patreon, which means OBT will be returning this coming Thursday! Due to my school schedule for the next year, we'll be updating on Thursdays for the time being. Now that there's a buffer, we can hopefully stay out of hiatus for a while (but no promises, my life has been kinda wild and unpredictable lately)!

As for other news, OBT now is adopting a new style to save time! It shaves a couple of hours off of what it usually takes to draw a page, so it's easier for me to get pages out for you guys. Hopefully you all will like it, I've updated the main cover of the comic to reflect on the update so you can get a taste of what it's like. (If you don't like it that's. unfortunate. I'm not switching back anytime soon.)

As for Patreon integration on the site, if you currently are one of my $5+ patrons, you can access up to 5 pages ahead of schedule (or $20+ can see all pages as they're completed!). While you can go straight to Patreon for these pages, you can also log in with your account straight from here to view the pages directly on Smackjeeves! This can make it easier to see where you left off without having to sift through other Patreon content.

I'm excited to return with the comic, and I hope you all are excited too!

No update this week (+news)!

Hey all! Apologies for not updating this week, I recently lost my buffer for OBT so I've been working on rebuilding it so we don't end up going on hiatus again. Updates should resume as usual next week.

Don't fret too much for the loss of an update, as I wanted to announce that for the entire month of March, I will be updating twice a week instead of once! For this period of time, we'll be updating on Tuesdays and Thursdays instead of just Tuesday starting March 1st. This usually is reserved as a Patreon goal reward, but I thought I'd give you guys a little treat.

As a bonus (unrelated to the comic), I'm currently doing Ko-fi sketches! More details on that here!

See you all next week, and I look forward to updating more in March!

This Week's "Update"!

Hey all! I'm sure many of you noticed that there wasn't a new page update this Tuesday for On Borrowed Time. That's because I've been working on the HTML for the site to be a bit more friendly to mobile users, as well as some general personalization! Let me know if any of you have major problems with the site.

As a side note, I thought I'd mention that the cover has been updated to reflect current character designs (and the current style of the comic in general)!

Hopefully Tuesday updates will resume as usual next week, it depends on how many bug fixes I need to do for the site. Thanks for your support!

OBT Returns December 5th!

Yes, it's true! I've built enough of a buffer for OBT that I've deemed it ready to return on Tuesday, December 5th! It will be resuming with regular Tuesday updates after the fact. At this time I have a near-full script up to Chapter 10 in-game, and all pages for the remainder of Chapter 1 have been roughed and lined.

If you are a supporter of my Patreon in the $5 tier, you will get access up to 5 pages ahead of public releases, so by the time December 5th rolls around you'll already be ahead of everyone else. Neat, right? That's not the only reward available though! Contribute $20 a month and you can gain access to pages as they're completed. And since I have about 10 updates near completion, that's about twice the story you can get in comparison to the $5 tier! Whether you choose financial support or just moral support, I am deeply appreciative~

I'm excited to return and see you all again soon!

Patreon Update!

Hey there!

I wanted to let you guys know that I've recently been updating my Patreon page with some new perks!

Right now, I'm uploading OBT previews for (a late) Inktober, as well as script excerpts in celebration of NaNoWriMo!

I also have some plans for the future, including Factoid Friday (name pending) starting December 1st, in which I'll post fun facts with illustrations about characters and the world they inhabit! Likewise, I've added a new goal in which upon reaching, I will start to host private, Patron-only streams while I work on future pages of OBT.

As always, being a Patron involves other perks such as commission discounts, cameo priority, exclusive WIPs, and more to come! Support from readers like you really means a lot to me, and allows me to not have to work as many hours which means more time to dedicate to the comic.

For those unable to support though, I still appreciate your readership! You all keep me going and motivate me to work hard to get this comic done. OBT will always be free to read, Patreon perks just get a little more insight into behind-the-scenes and all that. As far as returning from hiatus, I'm currently projecting our return to be sometime from mid-December to mid-February, but it's a little hard to say at the moment. Hopefully the former, I can't wait to start updating again. See you all soon hopefully!
