Anyone here who reads The Eye would probably know by now that Avencri is going through tough times at the moment with unemployment, no money, etc. So this is a thread for everyone to combine their efforts and offer some support. Donation, fanart, fanfiction, no matter what quality you can submit your best wishes for him here. Just to give a bit of help to a guy in need; even if it's just a 'Hang in there.'

Indeed. 'Tis a sad thing that's happening. I'm sure you can pull through, Avencri. Just like I'm sure there's more I can do than give you a pat on the back, though, for what it's worth, I enjoy the comics regardless of color or inking. In the mean time I'll try to think of something else to contribute.

Thank you very much, Lamington. You beat me to this.

Since you've brought it up, I'll go ahead and announce our plans to help support him. Avencri couldn't be more correct with his terminology. He is trapped in a sort of viscous cycle with The Eye. These troubles he's encountering are limiting the update schedule. And when this limits support for him, because people do lose interest when they feel the comic is dead, he doesn't receive the feedback to validate doing the work required to do The Eye of Ramalach, this in turn leads to fewer updates, and etc.

Nekonny has come up with the idea that in order to get people interested and talking again, we're going to start TEoR over again starting at the first update and then repost the comics one day at a time. Then, while this is happening, G30FF and I will be working hard to produce TEoR related content for the forums similar to the amount of detail LL receives. GE0FF has been helping Avencri with the comic scripts and checking them for errors. So this will lead to a lot more information being provided as to the direction and character development with The Eye. We will also be wiping the TEoR forums of all their topics so we can, in essence, begin anew.

Money... well in the past we have attempted donation drives for Avencri's benefit. But no one is willing to just give in decent amounts. I've always been a fan of trying to come up with systems that reward donors and I don't think Avencri has the time to wait for the Bust Chart to finish so we can start up the Bazaar. Do you know you can commission Avencri? Did you know that he sells $5 sketches? I personally think he can charge more, but there is a grim truth we have to face here. Despite that price, no one knows about it. And when no one knows about it, he feels like he's unwanted. We're going to set up drives to allow Avencri to produce art for pay and that will be better help through unemployment than anything. Note that I have not actually agreed on any plan with him yet, so I have to talk to him before I can give you specifics.

All and all, I feel for Avencri here. I've worked very hard on LL, I worked like a demon when I heard Running Wild was coming, and I felt like I've always kept in contact with Nekonny and followed his projects. But I've always taken Avencri for granted. He silently, and surely produced a comic he liked for years and I really never got to find out that he was feeling slighted until recently, when things are at their worst in his life. Thinks will change, and I'm going to dedicate more of my time to helping him and his comic succeed.

I support this move 110%, SK. And I'll gladly do whatever I can do to help the effort.

Avencri, you just hang in there and keep at that awesome comic. Something big is gonna happen here, you just watch :gleeRon:

Hmm... there's an idea. I'll see if I can talk to Avencri later today about another Sully commission. It'll be interesting to see my character drawn by another Katbox artist.

I've also recently donated $20 to TEoR just to help keep his spirits up. :gleeSully:

Well, I dunno if it's much or not, but I'd like to showcase the KB Kards that would not have been possible, if not for the EggMaster himself. :gleeRandal: Really, Aven, much of these later ones were ONLY possible because YOU gave me the text-less art, man... something that NO KB ARTIST has yet to do. Several of these last ones were a joy to make, and I don't want them to stop, neither. :amazeRandal: Especially since I might have so much more work to do, now that the comic might be re-made from scratch. :confuzzledRandal: I'm posting the majority here in links, because, well... there's a LOT here! :heartRandal: Here we go. :blushRandal:

Look at all those, everyone. :amazeRandal: Take a long look, Avencri. All 26 of these cards would have not been possible if not for you. :gleeRandal: And near-all of them are some of my proudest and finest works. :heartRandal: You helped me out FAR MORE than any other artist here on the KatBox, and I am genuinely grateful for that. You are appreciated and wanted here, Aven, even if some of us are strapped for cash! :blushRandal: Don't give up the fight, man... we're all here for ya.

I wish there was something more I could do, but I have no art site accounts or anything like that to help with public knowledge. :cryMiles:
That sounds like a very good idea though SK, and what I CAN do is to contribute more around here, let him know he's appreciated. Scrounge up some donation stuff here and there, and as soon as I can find some time I'ma make some fanart. Hang in there, Aven.

Guys i am really surprised by all this and i am really speechless. Though i think it won't be fair if i just sit there recieving help. I would like to contribute with something as a way to say thanks to you all, but i really need ideas/suggestions for this. Feel free to comment on this last bit.

Lamington: We have never crossed words before i think, but i am really flattered by your innitiative.

Eradose: Wow, the Valkyrie Profile series is one of my personal favourites and Aelia is a character that I always keep in my team up to Seraphic Gate! ^^

Soulkat: You have a point, and one of them is also my lack of participation at the forums because of the same cycle. I will be trying hard to break it and being more participative around here. As for the reuploaded content, i was thinking of doing a lot of background information in the artist's comments to give some insight on each page. I do think about the sketches for hire thing, since i am quite fast at them and i think i do them quite well, it might be a good chance to get some extra bucks while i find a new workplace. SK, i really want to thank you for your help.

Crimson: A lot of thanks for the cards, i always got the art avaible. It is just a shame i lost most of my older files.

Jaffah: 100 hundres sketches for 10 dollars each!? Wow, that quantity is just quite imposing just to think about it! Could you share a link that explains such mechanic? O_O

Rosscoe: A fan peace? What is that?

Please, thank Makrosian. He's the one who attacked me told me about the problem in the first place.

Also there are actually a lot of artist doing the 100 sketches deal with their own little variations (Some do line arts instead of sketches, some make them cheaper. I even purchased a $1 sketch from one guy!)
Like this! It's like a bunch of mini commisions.

Yeah something like this seems to be a trend among a lot of artists these days. Heck if you would do something like that (batches of 10, $10 each) it would draw some attention. So to speak. That and your sketch/linearts are godly compared to other artists, so you know I'd happily climb on board

Lol, I did not attack you! :furyDavin:

I just gently nudged you along to help me out with what I thought was a worthwhile cause :XDLamington:

Remember, Avencri, we're really pulling for you here, and be it cash or support, we'll all contribute a little bit either way :gleeJoy:
