And here we are, the final page.
Shades of Gray (Ten’s Story) is officially completed. Ten never appears again after this night, but that doesn’t mean that the story ends here, because stories never really end. They just pass on to the next narrators.
I want to give a huge thank you to all my fans and readers for supporting me through this project. Everyone who’s left comments, emailed me, created fanart and fanfiction, supported me through patreon, or just showed up to read – Thank you so, so much. I could never have finished this without you.
Shades of Gray and the Kahmith universe have been a huge part of my life. I started creating the universe and characters when I was just 15/16, and started posting the comic right before I started college. Since then, it’s taken me through graduation, meeting and marrying the man I want to spend the rest of my life with, the death of my father, and more housing and job changes than I can count. For better or worse, Shades of Gray has been a constant through it all, and it’s been an indescribable experience to grow up with this story and these characters, and getting to share them with the world.
I’m not sure exactly where I’m going to go from here. I have no intention to take on another project like this, but I have ideas for things I might want to draw or write going forward. Tumblr and Deviant Art are the places new stuff from me will pop up in the future, so look for me there.
As promised, I’m going to be answering any lingering questions on tumblr, no matter how big or small. For anyone who’s unfamiliar with the site, you don’t have to have an account to participate. Any questions you have can be submitted HERE, and everything I’ll be talking about is tagged under WBW (an old throwback to when I did World-Building Wednesdays.)
Among other things, I’ll be going into the untold stories behind Jael, Tattle, and Vivan. Keep an eye out for that, though it’s going to take me a bit to type them up. Even abridged there’s a lot to say for each of them. I hope to get lots of questions from you guys, so don’t be shy!
Since the story is officially over now, I’ll be taking down my patreon in October, once the final round of donations from September are processed. Thank you so much everyone who gave me financial support on there. It’s helped me out more than I can say, and gotten me through tight spots more than once.
And finally, thanks to generous fan donations, this site will remain up until August 2019. Past that, the story can also be found on its original site: TheDuck (a free hosting site I’d recommend for any budding comic artists looking to get their stories off the ground.)
Aaa goodness, the final page. Okay, I’m a little discombobulated and emotional, but I think I’ve covered all the important things.
So one last time, thank you so much for reading and being a part of this experience with me! You guys are the best fans anyone could ask for. Big hugs all around!
