At last! A new page!! I got so stuck on this page, which is very odd because I liked the sketch and inking a lot. And usually when I like it after inking, I am eager to colour it. But something stumped me about this one. But it’s out of the way now, and I’m going to be putting my best effort in to get another page up before the end of the month!
Heya, everyone! Those of you who have been around for at least a couple years may know that I sometimes work with Tiffany Ross, usually as a colourist for her comic, Shivae! Vas. Well, as a thank you for helping her over the years, she gave me a cameo featuring Ka the wyvern in Shivae! You can read Shivae here! Ka’s cameo begins here in the archives.
If you’re wondering why Ka has scars not seen in his apearance in Eryl’s prologue, I won’t tell you. I’ll leave you wondering if it’s because he survived the explosion, or if I felt that he would just look more badass in Shivae if he had some maiming. Which is it?? THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW.
I am planning to get back to working on Eryl soon. I also have the rough sketch done of the next Ashes page. Buuuut right now I’m ill and feverish again. I went a whole THREE WEEKS without getting sick and thought I had those viruses licked. :C
In nerdy news, I got a PS Vita! If you want to add me as a friend, just comment here. I’ve mostly been playing Ecolibrium and Tearaway, but have sampled other awesomesauce games like Little King’s Story, LittleBIG Planet, and FFX HD. After being all Nintendo for my entire gaming life, I am blown away by the graphical quality of the Vita. However, the library’s quite small and mostly male-oriented. While I do enjoy a good action game, I’d rather not have oversized breasts hanging out all over. And the rear touch pad- while a neat concept- is annoying. I’m always touching it while I hold my Vita, meaning that in games like Tearaway that use it a lot, I’m constantly triggering things I didn’t mean to. It just feels cramped to hold the Vita without touching it.
I’m feeling burned out on this story at the moment, so updates are going sporadic. It will likely be a while before I have the energy to do the next page. I’ll be working on Laiyu in the meantime. Stay updated, as always, with the RSS feed, or just check back every few weeks.
Being the immensely wise, sensible person that I am, when I wanted to update the look of this site, I upgraded to the latest version of Comicpress so that everything would be up-to-date, compatible, and continue to run smoothly. I mean, that’s the wise, sensible thing right?
Well, I’m in over my head, and while I’ve managed the bulk of the customisations and migration of archives, there are still some major kinks to work out.
The most prominent being that weird notice on archive pages that there are no widgets in the left sidebar. I have no idea what’s causing that or how to fix it, so I’ll have to post in some help forums once I’m a little more awake (it currently being 5:00AM and I’ve been working on the site since midnight). Fixed thanks to help from Philip Hofer (the comicpress creator)! Thank you so much, Phil!
