Whoa, it's December. Miss me? Don't answer.
Recently I've taken to writing and process work for a bunch of narratives and large-scale work, kinda drawing in one sketchbook for an hour, then trading it out for another for whatever comes to mind. I suppose I shouldn't say recently, because it seems that it's been over a month since I've posted any new work. Whoops. Back on the wagon now, see how long this lasts.
What's coming up next is a trio of Wakfu pieces, one a revision of Commissar Evangelyne
and the other two involving the Xelor
I designed. I've been considering steamrolling through all my fan art sketches to get that stuff out of the way, maybe use it to expand my audience. The revision thing is still ongoing, there's a lot of that to do yet. I must have expected to be finished by now when I started, but it's pretty balls figuring out what's worth keeping and how to make a decent piece out of it. Keep in mind you can keep up with stuff like that through my sketchbook on Tumblr at www.epictones.tumblr.com
since I update that more often. It's the nature of things, I suppose.
Speaking of finished, I've finished the script for my first graphic novel, so that should be out by the summer of 2014. If it's not out, I invite the international community for a visit to the Niagara region; see the Falls, have some icewine, then pop by Pelham so you can beat me up (it'll be out though). I've also managed to work out some prices for a modular commission system. I have a few bugs to work out still, but I'll be opening up for an experimental run sometime before Christmas. Vicki'll be around to help me illustrate just what's shakin' down. There's a boring Terms of Service to read and everything, look forward to it. I don't know if I am.
has also proposed making a video game, so I've been doing some writing and designing with him too. It's going to be a big endeavour, but the pre-production this far has been surprisingly fruitful. Don't expect to see any of it though until he wrangles some programmers and we get some proof of concept.
I guess I've still got an essay to write though, so I guess I'll have to do that first. So much for a smooth start.
