Mood disorder is mostly under control now. Been having problems keeping on track while adjusting to my medicine though. Good news is that now I have so much time to make this my full time job. I'm going to launch a serialization of a new/old graphic novel idea I've been working on and start updating my on-going comics again. I won't have an actual schedule this time. I'm just going to update when I can.
I've got one of my Patreon goodies ready to go. Month one's sticker theme is Cardcaptor Sakura cosplay. You'll get five stickers. They'll be Koh, Lilium, Jon, Patrick, and Siersha each in a Cardcaptor cosplay. Pledge $10 to my Patreon to get them and a new set of stickers each month.
I know I keep giving you guys a schedule and then not coming through on it. So, I've gotten to the exact place I want to be with my drawing style and I've given it some thought. I have made a 2017 schedule that will be final. No more edits. I've decided that I can only keep up if I release bi-weekly. So sorry about that, but it'll be for the best. I can take my time and really make each page pretty while focusing on making the stories better. :D
Next year I might be hiring some staff so if you're a writer or artist look out for that. We'll see how the budget looks and how my housing situation pans out at that point. I'm pretty optimistic but as you can tell, that's kinda default. XD
I'll be working on Patreon goodies for previews so you can see what you'll be getting. They'll only be released once somebody pledges and only that one month. It'll move right on to Month two goodies from there. So that's what Month 1, Month 2 means.
So here's the schedule:
9th- Month 1 Stickers
Pages 10 and 11 of each comic
Pages 12 and 13 of each comic
19th - Month 1 Magazine
31st - Chapter 1 Delineate Delegate
Pages 14 and 15 of each comic
Pages 16 and 17 of each comic
28th - Month 1 Art Book
Pages 18, 19, 20 of each comic
3rd - Month 2 Stickers
Page 1 and 2 of each comic (COS and PYP Ch2 and AMMF Ch3)
Pages 3 and 4 of each comic
You guuyyyyss. I've been working my tail off and you'll see most of it real shortly. Probably starting tomorrow. I've decided I'm going to do each month in bulk so I can run with the momentum. I'm just too lazy to do a page a day. Plus life and all that. This way is gonna work out great. 👍🏻 Get ready to get caught up!
I'm working really hard, guys. I have a lot of things planned, so these first months are naturally chaotic, but once I get a good flow going, things will be awesomesauce!
I did get the new graphics monitor and the new comic fonts, which look very pretty. I however did not manage to fix my computer issues. I was told I'll need a whole new computer, which I don't have the money for. So, I will continue trying to update weekly all three comics, and they'll look prettier. It just might be a little more staggered than I had hoped, rather than on the certain days I designated at the start.
It's all good though, cause I'm not stopping. :)
Back up next week! Ordered a really cool set of posable dolls that should arrive in a couple months. That'll help with poses and setting up scenes. Fixing my computer issues asap. Gonna get soooo real guys. As always I am constantly looking to learn and get better. Doing studies on each body part and after the drawing studies I'll be moving on to writing studies to make the stories better. In five years' time I'll be the new marvel/anime. Count on it. 😘
I have also purchased comic fonts you might enjoy. These will make my pages look a bit more polished and professional. :)
Coming this week:
So hopefully no more late updates. :) I'm definitely updating weekly though, and that won't stop. This week the bf is home for a short "vacation" so I'm definitely able to work ahead, which is good. I've got a whole year's calendar planned out and I am super excited about some of the writing I've done. Both Carnival of Sorrow and Pick Your Poison make me want to never stop drawing, I'm that excited. I'm working on making Art Makes Me Feels just as exciting, but from the start I wanted that to be a romantic drama with magical/mysterious elements. I can't get extremely excited about that, as I'm not that into romantic dramas. I definitely love love love the characters, though.
You guys should be super excited and impatient, because I really am. :D
