That took a little bit longer then expected but here’s a new comic!
Still finding a “groove” for the vertical adventures.
I had to adjust some upcoming comics and rewrite the chapter
to get it running more smoothly and make it more practical
for weekly updates.
No worries though, updates will speed up now and we’re in full
swing producing glorious beardy content.
To follow our process you can follow us on facebook
and now also on Instagram.
For previews and behind the scenes material: follow Jorine on Instagram @beardlovinglady

Also, we’re now on Patreon!
You’ve probably heard of Patreon already,
it’s a membership platform were creators share exclusive
content with their subscribers in return for (crowd)funding.
If you are enjoying the comic and want to help keep
this comic up and running any support is more then welcome.
Be awesome today and become a patron of Beardy Bastards
And last but certainly not least, you can now also follow our familiar

Sooo… what happened?!
With the new format I quickly found out
that making a comic took a lot longer then before
and I really didn’t anticipate this correctly.
The results were missing deadlines and updates.
But the more dangerous effect was the mental backlash.
Call it a burnout or a light depression but my creativity
and work-flow crashed big time.
I have to admit this wasn’t just work related…
but it was a big trigger.
A major shift in my daily approach and routine
was needed to break a negative spiral.
Especially with a very healthy and VERY active
3 year old son while trying to get work done from home.
And I had to solve a big problem;
how could I speed up the comic making process
without compromising too much on quality and consistency?
Yeah, I know… silly perfectionist me.
It regretfully took a while but I realized I was still
approaching a web-comic too much like an illustrator.
With this I mean my work usually starts out quite sizable
(fit for large printing) and then I size it down for online use.
As a result every panel and character takes a long time to make.
And most of the time put into cleanup work and details
will be completely wasted because readers will simply not notice it.
Again, silly perfectionist me!
After some experimentation I simplified my working process
for the backgrounds to make it less time-consuming.
And the original artwork for panels and characters are a lot smaller now
to force me to not waste too much time on (unnecessary) details.
This speeds up things enough that it’s practical
to produce a whole full-color comic in a week or so
without going crazy.
But my apologies for going silent for a while…
I wasn’t in the right mindset to properly explain
what was going on and my automatic response
was to go real quiet and reflect on myself (too much).
I also want to thank all the loyal fans for their support.
You don’t know how much it has helped me.
And last but not least;
The Beardy Bastards are not going anywhere.
Adventures are awaiting!

I have the power!…axe?
Don’t you find it curious that while swords are widely
studied, collected and romanticized, the axe is mostly seen
as a crude tool/weapon at best?
You can go to classes to learn all sorts of sword fighting styles
(even make-believe ones like light sabers) but it’s difficult
to even find some basic information about using axes in combat.
Silly humans and their fascination for weedy swords…

Hot damn!
It’s really, really hot here the last few weeks.
This little country I’m at is usually wet and cold
and we’re certainly not prepared for such a heatwave.
More importantly, my work space doesn’t have airco!
And to add to that the drawing tablet I work on can get
quite hot when used for long periods.
So it literally feels like I’m working
in a sweat-shop here!
As you might imagine it slows down progress just a bit…
But enough grumbling.
I have to get back to the drawing board!

Apologies for going silent for a few weeks there…
Apart from some private issues that has been leeching my time lately
the real “excuse” I have is having to readjust to the new format.
The cover and the first comic of the new chapter are nice and compact
so the transition wasn’t that extreme but with this one I needed a whole
new approach.
In other words; I need to up my game to produce weekly updates.
So while most of you guys are having a well deserved vacation by now
I’ll be cracking on and draw me some more dwarfs!

And now I present you with the first comic of the
brand new chapter!
I’m especially interested what you guys think
of the new format.
While it’s made for mobile viewing the added scrolling
and large fonts shouldn’t become annoying when
seen on a tablet or pc.
But first and foremost,
enjoy!
Teb
P.S. Apologies for not getting the comic ready
on Veklim’s birthday. Late congratulations!

We can finally present you with
the brand new cover for the fourth chapter!
It’s a remake of the old cover but translated
to a new mobile-friendly format and making
optimal use of the vertical focus it provides.
Please take a look at comics platform Webtoon
for an easily digestible format for when you’re
in a crowded train or waiting for a big one on
the toilet or some such conundrums…
For those old school web-comic lovers we’ll
be posting the new comics extra large on our
site for some glorious full size consumption.
I hope you enjoy this new format and please
post a comment for any suggestions to
improve it for your viewing pleasure.
And a special thanks for our loyal fans
for patiently waiting on new content
while supporting us!
This comic wouldn’t be here without
you guys.
Many Thanks!
Teb
PS. Sorry for the extra delay.
Next update will be Friday 15th.

We did it!
All first 3 chapters completely
reformatted and pimped out!
It was a lot of work but worth it
in my opinion.
But the search for the perfect
comic-reading and doing-dwarfs
-justice experience never ends…
The comic was originally designed
with printing in mind but this
isn’t really compatible with easy access
and reading on your phone.
To this end we’ll make some slight
changes to the setup of the comic
to make it perfectly readable on small
phone screens.
We’ll take a short 2 week break
to iron out the details before we
begin with chapter 4.
But don’t you worry…
We’ll be back (this time).
Honestly!

It still surprises me how
one extra panel can add
so much to the story.
However subtle it may be.
(spoiler: it’s the first one)

Only 2 more comics to go and
we’ve reached a new chapter!
I’m really looking forward
to create completely
new material and advancing
the story-line.
Finally!
