Hello, how are you? I'm swell. In fact, I'm amazing. Getting the first chapter of The Empty King posted just made my week fantastic. 54 images in that thing, you know. 54. And even though they're not perfect, I am just super happy with all of them. Happy enough to still not point out all my mistakes.
During the past few days, I went through and typed up all the original dialogue for Chapter 2 and changed some of it around to make it fit better. Then I sketched really rough outlines for the pages while simultaneously removing and adding scenes where needed and editing my dialogue script accordingly. It sounds like a lot of work but it's really yes a lot of work goddamn. There are 70 pages total. "Wow, 70? Really?" asks the hypothetical audience. Yes, hypothetical audience. There's really 70 pages. "Gosh, that's an awful lot." But it won't take a long time to read. 54 pages took maybe five minutes to click through. Sure, there's a lot more being said in this chapter, but it'll probably take maybe 15 minutes tops to get through.
I expect to have this chapter up by late June/early July, but I'm not sold on the date yet. I have a process, though, and it's a processy one.
I've also started a small series of artsy tutorials of slightly sarcastic nature that are mostly intended for the same guy. He's not much of a human-drawing-fellow so I decided to help him out. Maybe I can help others in the process? I don't have a schedule for them but I do have a list of things I plan to address in the next few. They'll come out in between procrastinating on Chroma and The Empty King.
Speaking of Chroma, I'm about halfway done with the next story. When I stop falling asleep at the keyboard I'll have it finished and posted. I plan to have a picture in this one and I think I know what scene I want to draw.
That's everything for now, I think. Toodaloo.
