Betting You Thought I’d Forgotten It But…

… no I didn’t forget 10 Confessions & A Kiss. My life has just sucked that bad.

However, there’s good news. I know I had decided “pencil forever” on the final art style but the other day I stumbled across a way for me to do the one look I’ve been wanting to do from the beginning. And with that, 10 Confessions will be taking another style track: most likely the final one if all goes well.

It’s all because of how I’ve been working on 3D to get Akashik back up again. I got curious, did some tweaks, and before I knew it I had a very good looking (if drawn a little differently) Zoe with perfect toning and great proportions. And I realized… I can totally do this.

So for the past 24 hours I’ve been working on some things as fast as I can before my coach turns back into a pumpkin. I have the four main guys done up and even rendered. Want to see?

So yes, things continue to fall back together.

I’ve been preoccupied lately with work while getting nothing done. Things are balancing out so that I’m able to back off even more and consider making comics a bit more of more in my time schedule. This is good.

3D developments continue: made an Akashik comic the other day simply because I could. It doesn’t look how I like it yet – probably will never – and I’m actually considering making up a process where it’s half drawn and half 3d. This way it would have more of my flavor but my hand might survive the making. Anyway, it’s no rush considering the finances and all that. One thing at a time.

On another comic note, I’m incredibly frustrated. I found a way to return 10 Confessions back to its original form. This return would help my hand, put 10 Confessions back on track, and make things how I want them. It was an art plugin called AKVIS that made it possible. I had a trial version, and that version ran out. So I’m sitting here stuck on 10 – so close, so very very close – until I can get the money to continue. It’s like being stuck outside the wall wanting in from the cold. Brrr!

And finally, I do have more Cyphacon and (now) Bayoucon footage for you. I keep trying to upload the next segment and it keeps timing out. We’ve been having some internet troubles lately so maybe that’s it. But I am working on it, I promise!

And I guess that’s it for now, eh?
