This message, obviously, doesn't come from December 27th of 2009. It comes from the date listed on the comic, July 27th, of 2012. Originally, The Descended did not use a Chapter system, and launched straight into the first page.

Now, it does, via Story Arcs. And chapters (Arcs) have chapter cover pages. Arc 0 (the first Arc--what you're reading now!) earned its title as a ShoutOut to Fable2, one of the main influences on the World of Soano.

Thus why it's been added, here. I probably shoulda made the text at the top SLIGHTLY larger, but oh, well. Next Arc.

So I've recently updated the cover, to what you see now. (5/17/2014 edit: I've recently updated the cover again. It contains updates that I thought about later.)
It's much, much better than it was before.

How can I tell? Well... this was what it was before.
...There's no comparison at all. :P The newer version is just. plain. better. It's a sign of things to come! ;)

(No, seriously. I realize my art sucks near the beginning, but I get much, much better if you continue reading. Have faith? :P)

Now, for an announcement for readers who have trouble following along--the characters and about pages are meant to help you. As of the time of this author note, they're not quite organized, but if you can navigate them, you'll understand things better.

If not, feel free to leave a question/comment on any page. I'll see it and answer as soon as I can. I TRY to tell a self-contained story which doesn't need extra pages or author comments to be told, but trying doesn't always mean succeeding. :P

really nice job! I can tell you put a lot of work into this :D

Yup! :)

It took a ton of work to create it, but I've got plenty more work to do.

Gotta continue making a sketch or two every single week, to practice. As much work as this was, it's just me warming up art-wise. :P

Nor can I. :P

I'm working on it in addition to literally ten other projects, so progress is slower than I would prefer. :P

You got the wings to look great!

Heh, thanks. I certainly tried.

Now if only I could make 'em look awesome on a person. (In particular, Argus. :P)

I was a bit lazy with the edges (I shoulda expanded the canvas 6 pixels each direction, or deleted the pixels which were past the cutoff) in this, too, by the way.

In hindsight, I realize that I could have made the pink slowly fade into a white with a gradient, to maintain the original effect from Fable 2. Whoops. :P
