Kind of for myself and also for anyone else interested (perchance), I'll write a bit on what I've been working on lately. On a more personal note, I was recently made unemployed, so I've been trying to see if I can use this time to be creative and see if I can't make some progress on the things I've always been intermittently working on. Serpamia Flare
I've committed to continue work on SF, the most longstanding strip I have on DA. I've been working on it for years, and it hasn't even gone past the first chapter, which is sort of stupid. But now that I have the time, I've started to colour and letter in inks that I completed ages ago. As it is, I've been doing my best to commit to at least one update a week for SF. The navigation link can be found here
. Of course, at this rate, I'll be done with the story by the time I'm a hundred, so I think once I'm done with the first chapter I will probably rework how I'm actually creating the strip to make it quicker. Legend
Legend is a story I've had in mind since I was in high school. It's evolved an awful lot over the years, and I uploaded one or two sketches I did of the story on DA here
. I started writing a novelisation of the story I initially intended as a graphic novel over a year ago, and surprisingly found that it worked quite well for me. I won't know how well others will take it until I complete the manuscript, but so far I have around 50,000 words down, with plenty more to go considering the complexity of the story. However, I've committed myself to working on it a little bit every day so I can have a completed manuscript soon. If I publish this story I want it to be a fully illustrated work. FragilityFragility
is currently on hold as I try to focus more on SF and Legend for now. I'm still not sure about the format I'll work Fragility into, because I've also worked a good portion of Fragility into novel form as well, but for now, I've decided to wait for inspiration to re-strike me regarding the story before I start seriously reworking the whole thing. Visual Novels
I haven't really been able to share much on this as I wasn't sure how things would pan out, but so far I am pretty sure one kinetic novel I'm doing the art for will be completed, and another project depends on my ability to actually focus and draw backgrounds (which I generally despise but need practice with). When the kinetic novel is developed a bit further, I'll be able to share more about it here, and if it gets completed I'll be able to share the link with you guys.
These are the main projects I have in mind at the moment. New ones may appear according to the whimsy of my muse, but definitely I hope to be able to continually update progress on SF and Legend. We'll see how it goes.
As a side note, I'm quite open to commissions
right now, if perchance anyone wants to commission me. As I did for my Japan fundraiser
(which you can refer to to find examples of donation incentives I did), I can do full colour pieces for around $20 USD a piece, though the price may vary depending on the complexity. Also open to doing sketches for around $5-10 USD, also depending on the complexity. Please DevNote me if you are interested.
