Merry Christmas! - I hope everyone had a salvageable 2017!
I completely underestimated how long this would take to finish. The sad truth is, it was intended to be uploaded on my usual uploading day (a Thursday), and there was going to be a followup bonus strip to be posted on christmas eve. Unfortunately....this took so long there was no time for the followup strip. Oh well.
Part of this is due to me just not being able to use Clip Studio very well...this was actually the first time I'd tried properly colouring in it. Of course it's been so long since I actually did a colour illustration that I have almost forgotten how, so I'm not really happy with this. (that and the perspective is pretty whacked...I used RoomSketcher to help with it, but it's still kinda off) This is at Sydney's beach villa.

Southern Cross will return in 2018 with the remainder of the redrawn intros, followed by a major plot development. I am actually unsure what to do from there because about a month ago I received an email from Smackjeeves about how the cost of comic hosting is going up by $10USD, and to be honest I just don't think I can be bothered paying $30USD a year to have a .thewebcomic URL. I am potentially considering other hosting options, although it'll be a huge pain to move everything. Otherwise it'll go back to .smackjeeves.com, which kinda bugs me, but that price hike is just too much. Anyway, I have until next September to figure out what's happening there.

Happy holidays to everyone!

Merry Christmas!
I'm very curious about what Bri's saying that has got Mel so flustered :D
Darwin looks very happy with his reptile friend...Adelaide and Perth maybe not so much :P
I'm very excited for the plot development coming in 2018!

@L: yeah, it's kinda odd because without the followup strip it's a little meaningless, but she is actually telling him where she hung the mistletoe, and he is pretending he has no idea what she's implying.
