Karin Sketches

If you've only just discovered Transpose Operator recently, you may notice that the main character does not have a name yet. However if you've been watching my blog or were from the Comicfury site you may notice that I've let it slip once... or twice... that her name is Karin. "OMG SPOILERS!!!" you may say, however It's not that big a deal, she gets her name in chapter 2, as you'll soon find out.

I've been drawing Karin for years and her design has changed slowly, more stylistically than any particular elements of her design. The sketch page below has a few examples of the older style and the newer style.

It's kinda interesting to see the progression. I've had a hard time in the past making Karin look her age, and in some of the beginning pages she looks more like a teenager than a young woman in her 20's, which is one of the reasons that lead me to re-do a lot of the pages. Then again maybe that's just me.

Also- points for anyone who gets the Persona reference among these sketches.

I plan to get myself on the schedule of posting a new image to the blog every Wednesday, this post will be the first of many to come. I'm trying to get into the habit of producing more art on a schedule, and this is the start of it.
See you next Wednesday!

Transpose Operator site

Hello again. I didn't mean to go so long without posting, I've been busy with uprooting my life to move back home, job hunts, holiday stuff, etc., and the Transpose Operator site has been my main concern so things kinda died down here.
Speaking of that, I haven't posted about the Transpose Operator official site that went up a few months back. I've posted art and info about it on here before, and when it used to be on Comicfury there was a news post about that. But now I have my own shiny new domain that I got to design and pull my hair out over.

You can click the image to take you to the site, or go to .

Updates are every Monday and Friday, just like at the old site. Hopefully when I get faster at making pages we can add Wednesday and have 3 updates a week, but for now it's just 2.
If you followed all the way up until the end of Chapter 1 on Comicfury you'll be ahead of the updates since at the moment we're at page 45. However every page has been retouched and in some cases completely re-done(The script included!), so it's worth a re-read if I do say so myself.

I also registered Transpose Operator on "Top Web Comics", and I'd appreciate your votes! I don't know if I'll be doing incentives or not, but I will make sure to let you know if I do. I realize sometimes this is a deal breaker for people, but I don't feel like I need to "bribe" my readers. If you appreciate the comic then you'll vote, if not then you won't. Incentives are a fun thing to have, but I doubt people will only vote for Transpose Operator because of them. And I figure spending my time on making more comic pages is more important than doing incentives :)

You can also vote on "Comic Hovel"!

There's a Facebook Fan page that get's updates and news too!

And as always there's an RSS feed that you can subscribe to!

Not to mention Twitter. In case you don't already know, I have a Twitter account that is constantly updated with Transpose Operator news, among other things. Subscribing to that is also a good way to get updates.

And that's that! I hope to see you all on the site, whether you're leaving comments or not, I appreciate your readership! :)
