Time is flying by this year. I know we say it always does, but this year, man...
I've spent most of it trying to dig myself out of the little hole I spent 2015 in, with limited success. Despite taking a huge gamble by quitting my job and grabbing a nifty little Huion tablet monitor a few months ago, my work hasn't seen much of an improvement. I'm quicker, sure, and yeah it does feel a lot more natural drawing directly onto a screen, but I soon noticed that it wasn't the lack of tools that were setting me back, and it's been a bitter realisation. I'm trying to take time off to get better, we'll see.
Positive interlude kitten!!!
Our runt of the litter is finally getting chunkier and it's pretty neat. She's so funny, Having been a hardened dog-person all my life, I never knew cats were so entertaining.
I should say something about Skybound. My little webcomic project has been a hugely indulgent romp into the land of poor storytelling and weekly deadline failures. As expected, I haven't been able to keep updating it. Unexpectedly, people keep sending me messages asking when new pages are coming, which is equal parts encouraging and terrifying. Hugely glad you've all enjoyed as far as it’s gotten, though!
I never had any plans to see it through to completion, and have no desire to print and sell it, so I have no way of justifying its existence given the monetary situation I'm currently in. It’s a free full colour webcomic made by one tiny person who’s seen better days..
But, I'm glad to have made those few pages regardless. It earned me a lovely supportive group of followers (whom I still don’t feel I deserve), a thumbs-up from one of my favourite comic book writers, and hey now I sorta know how to draw castles 👍
tldr; I learned a lot from the project, I still care about it, I’d love to continue it, but I have no choice but to focus on commissions and other work stuff right now. I love you guys for loving it and I hope you can understand <3
I'm head over heels in love with UNDERTALE by the way...!
