Hey guys, I’m leaving this quick note here to let you all know I’m still here and still schemeing on how to best torture my characters in future pages. The delay is, as usual, health related. Nothing life-threatening, I should think, but I’ve been coughing terribly, running low-grade fevers, having swollen glands and spending most of my time asleep. One suspect is mono, but I really don’t know yet. Calling the doctor tomorrow. I’m not terribly worried as being ill is fairly routine for me (and I’m not trying to garner sympathy by that, it just is what it is), so no one else need worry unless the doctor delivers exceptionally bad news – but I seriously doubt that. But whatever it is, it is delaying updates. In the meantime – until I’ve perked up enough to draw – I am jotting down story ideas and doing some writing for the novel versions of my comics. I’m kind of stuck in the Ashes and Laiyu novels at the moment, so I’m giving Eryl a whirl in prose form.
This is an illustration I did before completely changing the story, and it’s one I don’t think I can use anymore. It does, however, nicely show Malskoth’s design in all its finalised glory. I thought I’d post it as concept shares have been sluggish on this story and I’ve also missed the last two Eryl update days. I am going to try finishing the illustrations for the prologue within the next week, and start illustrating chapter one, and outlining chapter two. Aaaah, so much work to get done! 😀
AH YES, I also made a wallpaper out of this. The first Laiyu wallpaper! Whoohoo! Just go to the wallpaper section of the gallery to download it!
There’s a new Eryl wallpaper available to download! All right, ‘new’ is subjective, as it’s an image that’s been floating about for a while, but now it’s in wallpaper form! Right-click and select ‘download linked file’ on your preferred size. You can also download it on the Wallpapers page.
Also, Raven, Paiya, and Felde have been added to Eryl’s World page.
Okay, the website reconstruction is nearly complete. I just need to overhaul the ‘About’ page and then delete all the content on the sub-sites and have them redirect readers here.
This took a whole lot longer than I thought, and I apologise for the huge gap in updates! I’m getting back on track – I am inking the next Eryl page now. I should have it done before the end of tomorrow as there is very little in the way of background.
Ashes updates will be another month in coming, though. I am going to live with my two best friends, Reby and her husband, Robert, for three weeks. I will NOT have a scanner, so I can work on Ashes, but not scan the pages to finish them. For Eryl I only need to scan rough sketches, so I can either do that with my iPad or just sketch digitally right in Manga Studio. (which I hate doing, but I can do it in a pinch).
