Been a while. Apparently I deleted all my previous journals?
I'm not on here all that much, I haven't been producing anything worth putting up here.
Been working on some things though, and I think I might be getting ready to launch a comic strip.
To be totally honest, every other day I change my mind about whether I should, whether it's the best foot to put forward, but it's the only series I actually feel prepared to launch (more or less), and I'm tired of not doing anything. I want to tell a story, a big one, and sitting on a bunch of ideas doesn't help with that. Drawing and posting makes that happen.
Maybe it'll die off like my last couple series, but if I'm lucky, it'll take off and someday soon I'll have a completed project under my belt. If it dies in the water, well, I do have a plan B comic in store, so I can just jump right into that. Either way, I need to get my story on before I wind up Giles Coreyed by creative indecision.
The strip will be a 4-panel storyline-based series. As much as I like full pages, I don't have a ton of free time, and I tend to get winded when doing comic-book layouts for weeks and weeks. It'll be heavily inspired by video games but not a "gamer comic" or a fancomic. I'm thinking of putting it up on ComicFury, and reposting certain strips here. Might put the whole first chapter on DA. I'll make sure I link to the series when it starts, in another journal post here. In the meantime, I'll see about putting some concepts here on DA.
Once I have a buffer I'm going to try running it with updates every Monday/Wednesday/Friday night. If I can keep that up I might shoot for every weeknight; never held a real update schedule before and I can't be sure how it'll go. With the short format and the simple art style I'm planning, it shouldn't be impossible.
I need to produce a few assets, like the aforementioned buffer but also a logo/banner, maybe some buttons and other little things, but I'm aiming to launch it soon-ish. Here's hopin'.
