Ashley is either being helpful with the cooking by acting as a sentient smoke alarm, or there is a gremlin behind the smoking pot! Only clicking through to The Muse Mentor will unveil this mystery.

I’m actually quite pleased with the page this week. The past few have definitely been produced under duress, but I’m tryin’ to make it happen.
By the way *ahemahem* I have a Patreon, which now updates the page inks on Monday or Tuesday, and as of this week I have also begun uploading the actual page earlier on Thursday, so donators get to not only see a WIP four or-so days before it goes live, but they also see the page first! It’s somethin’, huh? I am going to try to come up with some other perks before summer is done.
Reblogs always help spread the word! c: Thanks for reading!

yattafactory said: After reading through the last few pages, do muses have issues with notions? Or vice versa? Are notions at the lower end of the social class? Is there even a social class in Muse Mentor?

I put together a couple of pages (in order of appearance) that might help give a good idea of how this works within The Muse Mentor! There isn’t necessarily a STARK social class, and you’ll notice some characters conform to it more than others, but I think reading through, it does paint a bit of a picture.

Basics on muses.

Basics on notions.

Implications of things.
(There are a few parts in the comic where you can catch this, but I won’t link ‘em all. You’ll find ‘em if you know what to look for!)

Ascension!

Twins.

The entire perception of it really does seem to work better when done in a straight-through read, which is why it’s sometimes a bummer to only do one page a week, but I gotta do what I gotta do, and I hope it’s still enjoyable all the same. Thanks for the question!

she-girl said: Hey there! I love your webcomic, and I was wondering, since Bea's obviously into into girls, is Sam by any chance gay, too? I haven't gotten through your whole blog yet, so sorry if I'm asking a stupid question. ^^

Hey, thank you very much - you are perceptive! I don’t think I’ve mentioned it too often, but Sam is gay. I do intend to give a nod to this within the comic’s narrative (first mention is chapter 5), but this content is certainly not spoilers or anything. c:

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 know I have been really quiet over here the past while, but LOOK! I managed to update my comic this week! And should uh, be continuing, as such!

attn: respectable and respective Esteban and Bea fanclubs. I have returned your muses to you, and in peak form, no less. Thank you for your patience while I kept them cloaked behind the scenes for the prior pages of this chapter!

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.

image

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…

image


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

Self-promotion, how does it work? Beats me! But I at least definitely know how to direct your attention to those bottom four links!! Those are my girls, there. Also - have you checked out Countershot Press, yet? (Thanks, if you have!)

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.

Wanna help influence a teeny piece of TMM’s 4th chapter? You can make Mona’s wardrobe decision for her! Click-click and scroll down to vote, I’d appreciate it bunches (and I’m sure Mona will appreciate having someone else take the pressure off of her, as well)!

I did some palette requests based off this art meme, and thought I’d throw ‘em up before I slog to work! Thanks everyone for your suggestions, if I have time I’ll try to do the ones I wasn’t able to get to - no promises, but best intent, at least.

A Harlowe in #15 for jim-moroniarty, a Mona in #4 for spacekayce, an Esteban in #10 for closetextrovert, and a Bea in #14 for stonelions!

Conflict? In a story?! Why, it’s preposterous!
Nonetheless, new The Muse Mentor is up, up, up! Also, this week marks our official 2 year anniversary. 80 pages in, and still goin’!

WUH-OH

WUH OH!
Also, I am reblogging this week because, as mentioned, it is still the comic’s birthday week. I’ve been at this for 2 years, now! I think that deserves a teeny bit of fanfare. I feel good about my work ethic and am looking forward to keeping it up!
