Hey guys,

Since we finally reached the last page of Volume I of "Off-white" and announced updates of existing pages I though it would be a good idea to post the schedule of how we are planing to go about it. We'll be  starting chronologically from the first chapter. There’re around 100 pages that are going to be redone completely since we find both their art and writing not up to our current standards. Hopefully this list will make things less confusing:

Cover - stays the way it is.
Prologue - nothing changes

Chapter I cover
- updated
Pages 1-17 - intro scene - they will be redone and rewritten, the part with Raigho telling Iki about spirits will be expanded
Pages 18-22 - Albert and Seven introduction - expanded and rewritten, the goal is to make it less of an exposition dump

Chapter II cover - will be repainted but we would like to keep the general composition
Pages 23 -26 - art will be improved but layouts stay more or less the same
Pages 27-28 - this scene will be expanded and repainted
Pages 29-31 - reorganized totally
Pages 32-33- stays more or less the same, some art and dialogues tweaks
Pages 34-38 - just no, it's way too naive, must be rewritten
Pages 39-41 - one page will be added and art redone
Pages 43-58 - will be redone and rewritten, definitely needs more character development 

Chapter III cover - will be repainted
Pages 59-82 - will be repainted but not rewritten - only minor dialogue fixes
Pages 83-85 - slightly reorganized and improved

Chapter IV cover - this cover will be repainted  with a different character since Hati doesn't appear in this chapter
Pages 86-92 - improved and reorganized
Pages 93-120 - only minor art and dialogue fixes - around this place art and writing gets "acceptable"
Pages 121-139 - only minor color and anatomy tweaks

Chapter V cover - stays
Pages 141-151 - we are happy with those pages so we won't change them
Pages 152-173 - some color tweaks to make the light more consistent 
Pages 174-285 - those pages will stay the way they are

All the old pages will be gradually moved to this folder --> OLD PAGES ARCHIVE. So no worries, nothing will be lost or deleted forever.

So that's more or less what we're planing to occupy ourselves with for the next few months. If you have any suggestions - any particular scene or dialogue that have been bothering you - now it's the perfect time to let us know! We would love to hear your input :)

This sounds really interesting! I'm still slowly making my way through the original Off-White comic & the changes & new pages will make the comic even more cooler!

Thanks for sharing this with us all Akreon, it's very informative. I know they're all 'redos', but this sounds like such a busy schedule. I can't wait to see the whole volume up-to-date and finished. :la:
I'll let you know if I find anything that I want to suggest!

I'm sure it'll be beautiful since the artwork really improved over time.
However, but that's just me I suppose... I'd rather see NEW Off-White then redo of the old pages I love. I know the art is not up to standard with what it is now, but I don't mind that a single bit, personally. It's amazing the way it is.

Guess I'll have to be really really really patient to see what will happen next....

Since Fehu and Gebo are my favorite characters I'm looking forward to the part about their family pack being more developed. We know that Othala is Fehu's aunt, but I was always interested what had happened with Gebo's parents (were they still the part of the pack during Othala's rule? It didn't seem so). It's rather minor thing and not strictly related to the main story, but I always tend to focus on the background characters. ;D For the very some reasons it would be nice to see more interaction between the two of them (guess there will be place for this in chapter 2).

Good luck with redoing the pages!

I think page 37 and 38 are OK the way they are, but the second panel on page 72 must be changed somehow, it's really awkward that way. :D

hehe, you accidentaly linked VI cover instead of the V one :b
also wouldn't it be strange that Raigho appears on both the first cover and second cover as well? maybe the second one should be maybe Fehu? but i don't want to sound bossy ^^ keep up the amazing work, been reading this comic since 2012 and its beautiful! <3

good luck girls!
my only suggestion (and hope?) is expand on Kaya's character beyond the "hey idk you but you look interesting i'll kiss your nose~~" since she seems like she's gonna be playing some important role later on.
Just basically make it a more mature approach to her character and her attraction to Iki. Also maybe give Isa and Gebo a few more lines of speech ^^"

I love the story (and have kept up with it to the best of my ability) but I was wondering, and perhaps it's been said before, is it ever going to be released as like a hard or soft cover graphic novel?

I'm mainly asking because I'd love to read the book version

37-38 Is such a pretty page! Are you going to completely get rid of it from the story? Or tweak the previous pages so it isn't naive?

AS excited as I am to see the next chapter and hopefully purchase Off-White once it's ready, I can see why you'd wanna take the time first to do some revamp.  When you look at the old and new side by side...  Wow, you girls have come such a long way.  It'll be worth the wait.

Gosh, guys, I wish you all the best!  I can't wait to see Off-White up to your standards and ready to sell.

I think there's only two minor things that have bothered me enough to mention; in one of the last scenes with Skoll under the Moon's Shadow, the skin just around his eye retained the red tint of the background, while the rest of his face shone blue/white hues.  This is on page 207's second panel ( off-white.eu/comic/page-207/ )

The second being Jera's tears in the final chapter.  It did kind of look like her first set of tears had frozen halfway down her face and stayed that way.  I'd love to see some better flow there; new tears with each panel, darker tear streaks on her face as the crying goes on, just that kind of thing.

Wow... I thought you we're only going to redo the very first pages/chapters! That's a lot of work. I wonder once you published the book, can it be shipped internationally? I'm definitely interested in buying. :)

This is so cool....
I really like the changes you three are planning to go with. I'm really eager to see what you'll do with Iki and Kaya's relationship in the new pages since you said the characters (including Othala and the rest of her pack too, I presume?) need more character development and the scenes will be rewritten and redrawn. In my opinion, the old pages seemed too rushed for Iki and Kaya to suddenly say, "I'll miss you" to each other, because they had only just met and only had limited time to speak to one another because of Raigho's discovery.
Yeah, I know they're wolves, and relationships in the animal kingdom probably work differently than human relationships in real life, but I still really like seeing character developments and relationships between characters growing gradually, regardless of the species. No offense, though. :)
I'm also very interested to see Albert and Seven's introduction, and the more expanded scene where Raigho tells Iki of the different kinds of spirits in the physical bodies of their world. I'm very excited to see all of the redone pages, actually! :D
I'm still very excited for you three that you're going to print and publish Off-White, and I'll probably buy it once it is published. I can already tell by the new first page of Chapter 1 that it's gonna be great. :heart:

That's a good idea, moving the old pages to an archive folder. I know there were a few that I really liked and I was worried that they might go away. Thank you for keeping them around!

I also can't wait to see how the comic updates and changes to reflect the artists' improved skills!

It looks like you've got a lot of work on you hands, but I'm excited to see what happens. It's amazing to see how much your team has improved since the comic first started. Good luck! I'm super excited to see what is fixed up and added, especially after seeing how much you added when you were rewriting the prologue~
