Hey gang. I've gotten out of my short hiatus to give a few blurbs about my life and what projects I have planned down the road.
Before we get started, I want to thank those who've wished me a happy birthday this year. I really appreciate your kindness and it means a lot to me, along with the gifts I received. Thanks to
for these drawings
And a special thanks to
for hooking me up with 6 gigs worth of tutorials! I've been looking them over and I hope to sit down and actually do some serious grinding.
Now let's get down to brass tax.1. Job hunting
I've completed my seasonal tenure at a local accounting firm validating tax returns. Although I'm currently not employed, I've continued my hunt for potential new jobs down the line. I have some money hold over to cover bills so I'm not in any immediate need of funds at the moment. However, I may start offering commissions at some point should funds get tight and/or if I'm unable to get hired for something in an ideal amount of time.2. Game work
I am still involved with Harem Protagonist and Helmety Quest. While I've provided several sketches and concepts for Helmety Quest, I'm hard at work on finishing and finalizing animations for Harem Protagonist. The game will probably be released later this year, possibly between August or September. Walk cycles are kind of a pain, aren't they?3. Comics
Jaeger and Rage-chan are still going on. I've been working on stories and panels for both and I hope I'll continue with Rage-chan chapter 8 this spring. Some time in May I will continue with Rage-chan 8 and by then, I should have Jaeger wrapped up.4. No more gift art drawings...?
In case you haven't noticed, I've done a lot of fanart/gift art for numerous artists across the many sites I'm on. However, due to recent personal feelings and a need to get my own tasks taken care of, I will not be doing any more fan art for other artists, and the Sprite Blitz has been suspended indefinitely. This also includes groupshots. While it hurts to make this decision, I don't see it as a worthwhile endeavor for many reasons and it's time to go down a path that's more rewarding. If you disagree, I'm willing to negotiate but for now, I am not doing any more gift art for anybody. Perhaps at some point, I may change my mind. We'll see.
So that's about it for now. Thanks for reading and I'll catch you in another update soon.
PS - I got a Wacom Intuos not too long ago. Works like a charm!
