So things have not gotten much better living situation wise on my end, but my doctor did take me off one of my meds that were making me feel sick and nauseous all day, and after a few days of not being on that thing I'm actually starting to feel a lot better cause well... I'm not nauseous and wanting to throw up all day. With that gone I seem to have gotten my drive for writing and drawing back, so I'll be able to work on my novels and comics again, and I'm pretty happy about that.
Comic Update -
In concerns to my comics (specifically Raven Wolf), in all honestly in my current situation I should have stopped working on my comics, or at least officially announce them as on hiatus. This though is something that I do not want to do, so I have been trying to think of ways I can still release my pages without making myself more sick than I already while at the same time not keeping my readers waiting so long between releases.
A few people have suggested that I should start to release the pages without colour, as to get pages out more often because that step takes so long to do. The idea would be something like, release several black and white pages a week and then once a week colour one of them. Another suggestion to add to that was to colour an extra page if I got a donation for it (lots of bills to cover since mom left to be with her mom while she's dealing with her cancer, that that would honestly help a lot)
It's something I have been considering especially with how my living situation is right now, readers would still get the pages in colour, it would just be drawn out faster then it would be coloured.
The thing about this, is that I would but uploading 'unfinished' pages, as it would just be the line art, and I'm not sure how easy it would be to read (even black and white manga have tones and crosshatches to help visually show the scene / flesh out the characters better, which these pages wouldn't have because they would eventually be coloured. So any feedback in concerns to that would be great.
MMMMM TWO! Contest -
I'm not holding a contest my friend is, though maybe later when my situation is a little less hectic for me. This though is a contest that I entered." This is a Single Elimination Original Character Art Tournament for the awesome creators of Manga Magazine! Each contestant will draw his or her character from their own manga(s) and include their opponent's manga character! Manga Magazine users will vote on which artwork is better in the forums! The image should not represent one character completely winning over the other. The winner will move on to the next round to get the grand prizes of:
FIRST PLACE: $60 USD, And a free character drawing from any one fellow participating artist!
SECOND PLACE: $30 USD
THIRD & FOURTH PLACE: $10 USD"
Basically it's an art competition where I have to draw a picture featuring mine and my opponent's character with my opponent doing the same. (I am in bracket 'O' if you're looking) It should be fun and good practice. For those wondering Teddy is the character I entered into the competition. So expect to see at least 1 picture from that up. More than 1 if I manage to make it past the first round.
