So you aren't actually using MS Paint to draw these, right?

Damn, exposed as a fraud right out of the gate!

No, you're right, I use Photoshop. I started out in MS Paint (in fact, the only image on this site done in Paint is the very first one). But I quickly switched to Photoshop. I needed to be able to keep things on separate layers in an organized series of files as the stories built in complexity. "MS Paint Adventures" was what I named the game before any of this became an issue though, and the name just stuck.

All of Problem Sleuth, Bard Quest and Jailbreak (sans the first page) were drawn (and sometimes animated) in Photoshop. Same with Homestuck, except for a few pages made with Flash here and there, to facilitate sound and interactive elements.

So how did this all start, anyway?

I started it as a game in an online forum. The idea was exactly the same, but people would post their command suggestions in the thread, and I would reply to the thread with images. Pretty much the entire Jail Break adventure was developed in this format. I moved it to its own website for archival purposes.

What is the site's update schedule?

There isn't one! Unless you count "a lot" as a schedule. I'm usually putting stuff up just about every day, and usually multiple pages with each update. But I reserve the right to miss an "update day" here and there. Or even disappear for a week if I want to. I sort of like to think I can do whatever I want.

What do you use to do animation?

Mostly Photoshop CS3 (Problem Sleuth) but lately, Flash too (Homestuck).

Do you accept donations?

Yeah!

Who made the music in Homestuck?

These talented people, specifically for the story.

I have questions about science!

Ok! I wrote a science FAQs page to answer some of those questions.

Problem Sleuth is sort of complicated. It could use a wiki.

You're in luck!

Why is Problem Sleuth so long?

Because that is how long it took to tell the story!

Who are you, and why are you throwing all this weird shit all up in our business?

My name is Andrew, and I have done some other stuff too. As for why I'm doing this, my objective is merely to make your day just a little more fucking awesome.

Adventure Game Update

I am letting this one be viewable to the general public. (It will also be posted to the backer page of the Kickstarter.)

Homestuck continues this Saturday, with A6A6A4 posted in its entirety, resuming with the true focus of Homestuck, Caliborn's incredible journey as an artist. Then A6A6I4 starts on Monday, and will continue in a semi-regular manner thereafter, until it is done. I will find some horse calendar pages and illustrate the schedule for your convenience. You are, as always, welcome.

[S] GAME OVER.

Song is Carne Vale by Malcolm Brown. Always been a big fan of Malcolm's work, so it's cool to kick off the comic again with one of his songs.

Thanks to contributing artists Hanni, Matt, Jon, Rennie, Zack, and Jones. All of whom have contributed to Paradox Space as well. I haven't done a (non-game) Flash with a lot of contributing artists in a while. I think Cascade was the last one? Kind of a throwback to the old Art Team days. Remember that? Actually, the expanded network of PXS artists is almost like Homestuck Art Team 2.0. A number of the (now many) artists involved with that comic have sorta parlayed that work into other HS projects, including stuff for the game (more on that soon). It's been pretty awesome having so many great artists help build on the Homestuck universe.

About the Flash. Or really, A663 as a whole. Truly we are back in the saddle, with bad anime and mass murder - the quintessential Homestuck Experience. A year ago I knew I was going to have to pause for a long time. I made sure to cut it off just before this act, not after. Leaving you hanging on that note for a year... damn. Not even I am that cruel. Now you will only have to wait a week to see what happens next. I will say this much. It sure is a bunch of stuff that happens. The regular update engine lurches back to life on 11/1.

But as of typing this, by my watch, 10/25 isn't over yet, and technically neither is the update day. Hmm.

Next update is 10/25.


Caliborn's self insert guy is a nod to some classic fan art from 4 years ago, which to my memory was the first speculative drawing of LE before he was introduced. Thanks to the artists for the inspiration.

The Itinerary.

Or maybe, since Halloween is coming up, I should call it The Itinerscary. Especially because we may be in store for some spoooooky server crashes with these first few update dumps. Eep, I'm gettin the willies here!

One page today to test the waters (or uh, yesterday). When that's done and the coast is clear (it won't be), I'll post a bunch of pages on the 17th and 18th (oops, now the 18th and 19th). Then there will be nothing until 10/25. And then nothing until 11/1, at which point regular updates will begin again, according to an update schedule which I will share with you on that day. Then you will know which precise pattern of dates you will need to handcuff yourself to a computer and plug in your custom keyboard that only has a single giant F5 key.

It would seem against my better judgment, or really my ability to control in any way whatsoever, a fair amount of hype has been brewing for the return of Homestuck. People are jacked up. They are doing little dances in places they cannot be seen. They are writhing in kiddie pools of pins and needles for the return of all their favorite fantasy children. "John." "Karkat." And more. So it's hard to avoid finding it just a LITTLE funny that after a year-long drought, hopping back in the saddle means we will have to wade through 50 pages of completely atrocious garbage before anything happens. It's funny how life works out sometimes. Funnier than a clown tickling a horse. Sometimes you pause your famous webcomic for a year, and then your grand reopening is a lot of bad anime. On such occasions, when life hands you those kooky lemons, there is really only one thing you can say.

Fuck lemonade. These lemons are incredible.

Giga-Almost-Unpause.

Posted on 13 April 2014 by Andrew

Happy 4/13, a.k.a. 5 years of Homestuck being a thing! Since I know how much you like things, to celebrate I thought I would show you another thing that's been in the works for a while.



It's a new webcomic based on Homestuck, called Paradox Space! Have a look. That is all I will say about it here. But if you would like to know what the heck this ACTUALLY IS, here is a permalink to the news post where I talk about such matters.

Gigapause: Commence.
