And...that's that. The end of my guest chapter for Micah.

To Micah: thank you for your advice in writing a Dragon City story, and for giving me the opportunity to do this. I've learned a lot in the time it took to get it made and online, and I intend to use this knowledge for future projects.

To Mana Knight: thank you for the all help you gave me in the smaller details of the comic. Without your help, I'd still be trying to name Sandra.

To those who are still here at the end of 50 pages of a pixel-art fan chapter: thank you for reading. There wouldn't be much purpose to putting this online if you weren't here.

Today, December 20th, is actually a perfect day to be ending this comic. Because three years ago tomorrow was the day Micah asked me if I wanted to do a chapter for Dragon City Stories. Like with the December 6th comic, I didn't plan for the perfect timing on that. It just...happened.

Evacuation is over now, but I'm still working on other projects at I only have two sprite comics there at the moment, but I have plans for the future, including some drawn comics, and in somewhat more long-term planning, perhaps a visual novel I've been working on? Anyway, if you liked Evacuation, maybe you'll like some other stuff I've done. Right?

Once again, thanks to everyone who helped to make this comic happen, and thanks to everyone who showed up to read it. It's been fun. Really, it has.

The pixel art city is amazing.
Nice story, Andore!

Thanks! That skyline is actually one of the first things I made for the comic, because it was going to be the background of the very first panel of the original DCS3, which would take place on the surface, a few years after the evacuation.

When writing the last few pages of Evacuation, I realized "hey, this would be a perfect opportunity to do a panel of them looking at the city they're moving to. I checked the old artwork and was very relieved to see that I still had the skyline in my backgrounds folder.

I still have the first page of the original DCS3 (the only page I actually finished). I'll probably post it as an extra somewhere, one day.

I don't know if I can promise another Dragon City story...this one took a lot out of me, and there are other comic artists wanting to make their own chapters for this series.

But maybe one day, I'll come back for another chapter. And next time, no pixel art!

You speak as if pixel art is a bad thing! I thought that your work was very pleasing to the eye.

Thanks. Glad ya liked it. :-D

Pixel art isn't a bad thing exactly, but there are a few limi...a lot of limit...a ton of...*sigh*...endless limitations to it. I feel like if I can get to the point where I can draw stuff with reasonable quality, I can do so much more with the comics I write.
