And speaking of prizes-  E-mail me!

Every entrant needs to send me their address this week, so I can order and ship free stickers in November.  If you haven't already, just e-mail it to me (Dreamkeeperscomic(at)  I'll send a notice to everyone with confirmed addresses in a few days so you can rest assured I have your info. 

And prize winners, e-mail and let me know what you would like!  Choose a Dreamkeepers character for your pencil doodle- and Grand Prize winners choose any one of our published graphic novels.   

I hope everyone has been having a great October so far- ours has been productive.  I'm now shading Volume 4 page 31- only a handful of pages away from completing Chapter 10.   A Sneak Peek will mark that milestone, and then its on to the next Chapter- the book is coming together!

Thanks to everyone for your support and enthusiasm, we wouldn't have made it this far without you.

Keep sharing us with friends, help boost our Volume 3 updates with TWC votes, and be sure to fav and comment on the Halloween contest entries you like best.

Above all, enjoy your Halloween!

Warm regards,
-David & Liz

V4 Sneak Peek #9: Shading Dark Shadows

I love this part.

Shading is when the flat colors come to life, light falls on the scene, shadows form, and magic glitters.

Twenty pages of Volume 4 are shaded and ready to roll- ten more, and the first Chapter will be done.

The shading is going at a good clip thanks entirely to Liz and our intrepid freelancers- THANK YOU GUYS!  They're laying down the hours of work it takes to block in the flat colors, paving the road to a finished book.

And sometimes they add a little extra...  

Like this page from Darz- he added some extra layers to make his own text and special effects, creating a Halloween-tastic treat:

If you want some more Halloween art, check out our 9th annual Fanart Contest right here:

That's about it for this Sneak Peek- can't tarry too long at present, all this shading has put me behind on packaging orders & accounting, and I still need to create this year's Halloween Prelude special.

Wherein we see what happens when Namah goes trick-or-treating.
