The Muse Mentor Tumblog

Hello, and welcome to the tumblr for the webcomic The Muse Mentor! This is where the author will be putting extra art, reblogging fan works, alerting you about updates and all that other comicking jazz. Feel free to ask a question or just have a look around. We're pretty tame.

Sorry for the slight delay on the update time, gah! Some of you out there might be celebrating today, and if you are, please have fun and be safe! If you aren’t celebrating, maybe you can instead find July 4th to be the perfect day to welcome back The Muse Mentor after our brief one week hiccup!

I’m just gonna grab the caption straight from The Muse Mentor's site, this week:

Sorry for the hiccup! I overestimated my ability to get page 11 done on time, so I gave myself an extra week (for sanity’s sake). We’ll pick up and start rolling again next Friday, as usual.By the way, it is weeks like this where my Patreon account is probably best plugged. If you have ever wanted to give a hand to The Muse Mentor by effectively eliminating time spent at my day job(s) and rerouted towards making comics, a buck or two a month can really help me out. I have a lot of goals that would benefit readers as well, including wallpapers, livestreams, and bumping up to two updates per week!Thanks for taking a look, and sorry again for the skip, everyone. I will see you next week!

(Also, pssssst, as promised… most of you said Mona or Addy when I asked who you would want extra artwork of for the filler update!)

A slight delay on The Muse Mentor, this week.

As much as it pains me to do this, the next page is a particularly demanding one, and rather than rush through it, I’d like to give it the proper time to come together that I give every page. This means I’m going to need an extra week to really make it happen. I apologize deeply! My free time allows JUST enough space to comfortably crank out a full-color page each week without driving myself insane, and I really didn’t want to have to do this, but apparently my sanity is still important to me (goodness knows why), and I’m not going to cut corners on what I know this page needs.

HOWEVER! Since I’m giving myself an extra week, I’ll tell you something that is easy - quick character art! If you can name me your FAVORITE character from The Muse Mentor, this week I will draw up the top-named 1 or 2 or who-knows what, in a little bit of filler art. I know it’s no substitute for a page, but it’s the best I can do in a pinch, and I hope you’ll still enjoy it!

Soooooo… who’s your favorite?

Introductions: Amy King, “The Muse Mentor”

countershotpress:

Hi! My name’s Amy King, but you might know me better as sephiramy. I’m currently a cake decorator and freelancer with too many cats, but if I had to pick what I’d most like to be known for at this particular moment, I would hope it is the fact that I make The Muse Mentor.

The Muse Mentor features a very vague notion,

image

one fussy muse,

image

and some much-needed inspirations

image

all up against the pratfalls of jealousy and bad impulses, while still trying to find time for positive action.

I suppose when I put it that way, it all seems very average, but… whoever said there was anything wrong with average? Did I mention there’s food*?

image


I may have left out a few important details…

But if you want to know more, you’ll just have to come give it a read! Thanks for following Countershot Press! I’m on our fourth chapter and into the second year of craftin’ this thing, so you have a little catching up to do, but I’d love to have you along.

image

OH! Since I am last to the party, today… be sure to check out our other intro posts in case you missed any of ‘em!

Cami with Doomsday, My Dear

Miri with Riverside Extras

Rosa with Mythos

Gabi with H&J

I was finally able to sum up this comic… um… sort of. I mean, if you follow this blog, you know what I missed.

NONE THE LESS, exciting news - you may not yet know that I’ve joined up with some other super talented webcomic creators in our own little collective, Countershot Press! If you want to check out their works (you probably already know most of ‘em!) as well as our tumblr hub for future news, special announcements, and extra content treats, that would be much appreciated!

Hey everyone, I have a little task for you this week! If you go view the newest page of The Muse Mentor, you will notice Mona is stuck between two outfits. Well, for the first (maybe not last??) time ever, I have a poll up in the page commentary where you can VOTE and let me know which outfit she should sport for the second half of the chapter! That’s gonna be 13 pages of a dress you picked out. Neat, no?
So stop on by, drop a vote, thanks for reading! Reblogs to spread the word are always appreciated.

It’s true - TMM is now in its terrible 2’s! (Only I hope its 2’s will actually be better than its 1’s… certainly better than its 0’s!)
I just wanted to take this quick opportunity to sincerely thank all of the readers and supporters. There have been days where I don’t know if I could have made it as steadily as I have without the knowledge that there were people out there reading and enjoying this comic, which I know might sound kind of stupid, and I certainly don’t create with that sole intention in mind, but it really did get me out of some bad places. Thank you so much for letting me share this with you, and here’s to 2 years of having the BEST readers ever!
Oh, and of course, if you haven’t yet read The Muse Mentor… maybe you’d like to?

But who tested this week’s The Muse Mentor? Wait, gasp… YOU! It was you! (I don’t know why Toby approved your testing. You might want to take that up with him.)
