I know I’ve been pretty quiet lately. I’m sorry for the delayed to non-existent answers to comments. I still read and appreciate every one of them! I’m just too much of a mess to always answer. As far as comics go… I’ve hit a bit of a roadblock with writing Erosion. But to be honest, I have the feeling I don’t need to draw that comic, just write it. In which case the online world won’t be seeing any of it. But that also means more time again for Eryl and Ashes! I really want to get back to drawing them, but I’ve been feeling dead tired lately. Between catching every virus that blows my way and my emotional issues, it’s hard to find the energy. But that energy WILL come back, sooner or later, I can guarantee that much. So keep hanging with me, I’ll pull myself together one of these days…
Yeeeeaaaahh… So I kind of disappeared this past week and never posted that random hiatus art. Whoops! Well, what with struggling with my ever worsening depression I’m finding working to be more difficult than I had anticipated. I’m stepping away from huge comic projects just now and trying some art that’s a little more ‘zen.’ I’ll be sharing that soon in lieu of old Eryl stuff.
I managed to sketch & scan a page of Eryl today! Sadly, it was a Black Feathers page, not the current storyline. I’m trying to take this hiatus time to catch up on the redux chapter so I can try to keep it even with the currently updating chapter. I want them both finished at the same time. Since the current chapter is on page 11 and Black Feathers is on page 7, I have a bit of catching up to do. I also want to gather some semblance of a buffer together so it may be some time yet before I come off hiatus. I’ll keep posting awful old art with inane insight annotations in Eryl’s archive (alliteration, anyone?).
I’m just taking things one day, one baby step at a time right now. I’m trying hard to get my art groove back, but that may take a while yet.
To try and make this hiatus as painless as possible, every Tuesday or Wednesday I will dig through my old art dumpster and try to post some Eryl related stuff. Most to all of it has already been posted to DeviantART at some point, so if you’ve frequented that gallery, the art may look familiar. However, I’m going to add some annotations and background info where I can to make things more interesting. There’s already an old concept sketch on Eryl’s page for you guys to look at! SO GO NOW HUMANS I ORDER YOU.
And I managed to do a little sketching this morning on the next Ashes page, so hopefully I can get that comic updating soon. It may update for some time instead of Eryl depending on how things in Real Life go.
