Yaaaaay!! We’re updating again! This time with new and improved art! It might take a while before we actually get to the better art though. I TOLD you I was still working during the hiatus!
Also, expect some changes soon, like the addition of a Cast page, revamping of the Links page, and a bunch of new headers! Maybe even a real background, who knows?
I have upwards of 15 pages of lineart done and a couple of them colored. With luck we’ll be off hiatus before the end of the month!
In the mean time, why don’t you have a chat with Marian while you wait?
Oh man you guys make me so happy ^_^ I had no idea anyone was still sticking around!
Well for one thing, I am in fact still alive. You’ll be happy to know that, despite the inactivity here, I’ve still been working on the comic. I finally have a concrete overall plot figured out! (or at least more than what I had before…) I’ve been working on pages on and off, and I didn’t get as much of a buffer built up as I wanted to, but its not bad. I’ve been doing a ton of art, though, so you can look forward to much prettier pages than before! Also I’ve been doing some character pinups and concepts to use in a new ad campaign when I start posting again, so when I finish coloring those I’ll post ‘em here. Also, I got really bored over Christmas break and filled out a couple DeviantArt memes that are really funny. They contain spoilers for some characters that I haven’t brought in yet so I don’t know if you wanna see them or not.
In terms of the hiatus… It’s taking longer than I thought because like halfway through my application to CalArts I was like “what am I doing I don’t want to do animation my true calling has been comic art all along” and kind of switched my major, threw all those colleges out the window and started over my research. So, I still have like three new colleges to apply to and a couple more colleges to visit….
Well, at least my art improved?
So you probably wont get a page for another month or so T_T But hopefully I can start posting a ton of art before then to keep you happy! And if you still can’t get enough of me, me and my friend do this thing on tumblr you can always check out.
So I’m working with a good friend of mine to make MikuMikuDance models of all of my characters. He just completed Marian today, and I just have no words, it’s so fantastic! Obviously, it’s impossible to get every detail perfect when transferring my scribbly drawings into a fully rigged character, but holy crap did he do a superspecialawesomeazing job, to put it lightly. I mean, just, it’s just, just, I can’t, just LOOK AT IT!!
I’m so excited to have a fully rigged model of an original character of mine! It makes practicing my animation skills in MMD a lot more fun when I have my very own character. It’s also pretty cool since MMD was designed for vocaloid, and Marian’s design is based on those designs. Maybe someday I’ll even make her into an Utaoloid, heh.
You can expect more random blog posts like this one in the future about what I make with these models! Or maybe I’ll make a tumblr. Should I make a tumblr for my comic??
If you had no idea what I just said and you want to know more, or you want this model for yourself, just email me!!
I’ve been messing with the header images. And I’m in the process of making some new ones. Please excuse the mess.
Also I was wondering if you even like the idea of having random headers. Do you think it’s better if I just used one?
(Also hurray for characters you haven’t met yet. Muahaha)
Did you notice that shiny new button at the top? Yep, that takes you to my new Livestream channel!!!!
Right now there’s just a few videos of me working on a commission for someone. But later I’ll do some streams of comic pages as I work on them. I may even schedule a specific time. Say, Sunday evening. Or something.
But here’s the important thing: If/when I get a better mic, I may take questions or discuss random stuff while I work!! But I need stuff to talk about. So either tune in during streams and ask some questions in the chat, or leave some questions in the comments for me to answer later!! Thanks!
Going to move updates to Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, occasionally skipping Wednesdays when I get behind. So, yeah! Enjoy!!
