Little Avery was born on 1/11/14. This officially begins the baby hiatus for Forgotten Order.
That means I’m taking a break on updates for the next 2 months and may start posting new pages in March (schedule to be determined). I reposted the contest information below. You can see the current entries here in the Forgotten Order Facebook photo album. I will also collect them and post them on the site once the contest ends. There is still plenty of time to submit!
The theme is “Create you own Bone Doll“. This is a pretty open ended contest, you can base your bone doll off an OC, yourself, a pet, that kid who bullied you in middle school, whatever your little heart desires. You may want to also include a blurb on why your bone doll became cursed, what its primary task/chore is, or any other character quirk. Just keep it short and sweet (and PG rated). I have a sheet with some general information on bone dolls to help you get started but feel free to ask questions. Submissions begin now up until
February 17th (extended to the 24th! ) so there is plenty of time. I will picking a winner and there will also be readers choice winner (I will set up a vote). This can be done in any style. I’m looking for fun and originality so great art skills aren’t a requirement to win *** Also please please please read the disclaimer below if you decide to enter!***
You maybe be asking yourself are there Prizes???? Yes! I will be giving away the last few copies of my first printing of issue 1 (these are no longer sold anywhere) . This has the original/unedited art work and script from the introduction and chapter 1 so it will never be printed that way again, its kinda like a time machine looking back into my incredible frustration and inability to leave things alone. It will also be signed and include a sketch of your favorite character (hooray). I may add in some other goodies as well (depending on how quickly i recover from maternity stuff and how many entries i receive). Any questions can be directed to my email (ChristyMorganB @ gmail.com)
Im going to be off probably 6-8 weeks on maternity at the end of January (which is forever in update time!!!). Anyone who wishes to submit a guest comic is more than welcome, just keep it at a teen rating. If I receive anything I will post it as an update and link your portfolio/comic/whatever. Submissions for this are always open but Id like them between Late January and when I come back from hiatus so probably early March ^__^
***All art submited to the contest belongs to you, the creator. Entries will be posted up for viewing on this site (and social media sites related to ForgottenOrder) it will not be used for any other purpose. “BoneDolls” as a concept belong to me. Please be aware that this comic will feature more bone doll characters in future chapters. Any similarities between my own characters and yours would be purely coincidental and entirely unintentional. So if you do submit something please do not sue me, thanks***
