I’ve been working on it And I just can’t continue Anotherland. Its just not working. And sometimes you just have to know when to step back and look at what’s not working or broken and figure things out. So I did. I tried Dairokkan and I”m just not ready for that story yet. So I’ve decided to set down and start writhing some scripts using my Cafe boys.
And I’ve actually got 60 strips planned out. Which is rather intersting.
So I created Manager here. I’ll actually try to get all the strips drawn so that I can make a buffer this time. when I started I had a week buffer but that died quickly, so I am going to try again and actually make a long buffer so I can not get myself screwed up again.
So, I was working on Dairokkan shuffle. I came to the realization. Ryoji actually has night terrors due to the trama of his childhood. so I gave him bags under his eyes and a more worried expression. so I imagine he doesn’t sleep so much.
You know, I think I have a harder time with my Setting with Mages in it then I do with Dairokkan Shuffle. As much as I like the Mages world, I think it’s just to realistic so it kind of feels restrictive. Dairokkan allows me a lot more creativity. Just a thought.
I’m tryingto get into the habit to complete a drawing a day to try and get better.
So I was working on my Mage world and trying to sort out how to make the story work, one issue I ran to is a main character, this guy named Noah. I finally figured out where I think I want him to go. But I found his appearence just didn’t match.
The bottom row is closer to what I’m looking for. Something less spikey and more in his face to hide his eyes a bit.
So this is the one I ended up choosing. I still might consider doing a visual novel.
I really need to come on here more. Anyway I am still kind of creatively going everywhere. I put my comic on hold since I really don’t have much time and every time I have time off I always spend it on like, one good picture. *sigh*
I also wanted to do other comics. So I’ve decided to pull back and organize things a bit more. I want to get better and gave something solid. Not to get famous or anything but when I look at other web comics put into their works I was just being lazy. I also felt the pacing was really bad.
So I’m actually trying to get everything set better.
I also started trying out a new art app called Artflow on android. I really like it! It allows me to sketch much easier.
This was done on Sketchbook pro. its okay but it’s not really that great and kind of annoying how delayed everything is.
and inked pieces come out like this. Again, not bad but then again I’ve been using sketchbook pro for about a year now.
Now this was done on Artflow, I was even able to color the bloody thing. this wasn’t loaded into photoshop like the ones above, so it has surprisingly high resolution which was one of my issues with sketchbook. So I think I’ll be using Artflow from now on.
So I’ve been on a Japanese kick again. I usually bounce between this and Alice I think. Oh and The world with Magice (the one with Cafe Amelia in it)
Rather like Kitsune, if I were to think of some clan names I think I would go with:
I think the family above would belong to the Kitsunari clan. They family crest would be the Plum blossom. I think the Kitsuneji would be the Cherry blossom and the Kitsumono would be the Peach blossom. No particular reason, I just like the three houses being these particular flowers.
Since I’m a little bored I might make the other Yokai families while I’m at it.
