Timelapse Tuesday 36: Clip Studio Paint Manga + September News!

Hi everyone and welcome back to another Timelapse Tuesday! This week’s video comes with September news and changes! I wanted to dust off some of the rust from not inking much last week due to working on other projects.

I go into details in the video but the next few months are going to be busy and hectic to meet deadlines and get some special projects underway. I go into details in a later Patreon-only post so be sure to check my page out for more content!

To make sure I plan my time and get them done, I won’t be updating Timelapse Tuesdays for the month of September. In exchange, I will be streaming on Wednesdays and uploading them on Tuesdays!

Let me know what you think in the comments! I’ll see you all soon for the Twitch Streams!

Comic Update: Chapter 2 Release date!

I am happy to announce Chapter 2’s release date! Click on the image or HERE to check out the full Patreon post with details on what’s up with this chapter after the, what, 3-week break I allotted to myself before I got antsy and started working on this webcomic again.

I’ll be posting exclusive production notes during the course of the next 3 months as I work to my Patreon Supporters and Early Access to the pages! The webcomic will remain free for everyone! It will be released simultaneously on all my web platforms every Friday at 5pm on November 10!

Thank you so much for reading and your support throughout the years! I’ll see you all next time!

Side note: I’m over the moon with how lovely Lita looks in this cover! I mean the whole cover is looking great, but I had to redraw her face a few times before getting it right!

Art Process & Update

Hi everyone! Today’s blogpost is a bit of a hodpodge of several topics so let’s get to it! I must confess I took yesterday off from YouTube and blogging to paint for myself and build more stock for my Pet Portraits Collection and opened up a Special Art Commissions page for them! It was nice to just focus on making art and not worry about editing videos or comic pages.

I apologize for not updating on the Twitch Stream yesterday as well, it’s still going at 7:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It was reinvigorating to talk with people and draw the nights away.

I’ll be taking the month-long semi-break from the webcomic (that I never took haha) and taking some time to restructure YouTube content so it’s not so exhausting. I’ll keep on blogging and updating you all, I’ll just be a little more casual about it rather than being so rigid about the content!

As always, thank you so much for reading!

Art Process

Hi everyone and welcome back to Timelapse Tuesday! This video was a beast to make and edit, but I’m very happy how it turned out! Outside of cel-shade work, I’m not always happy with my digital painting skills but I do enjoying Clip Studio Paint’s pen tools. I’ve been thinking of transferring Chapter 1’s lines to watercolor paper but I want to give the process a try first with a new illustration before jumping in! Odd I know, but I think it was a success!

This is a scene I want to work in for Chapter 2 of Nightmare’s Tragedies, since it deals with the precursor conflicts before the storyline and, in a way sets up the comic’s plot in motion. I’ll talk more about it on Friday’s Comic Update, so stay tuned if you want more lore!

See you all soon for tonight’s Art Stream!

Comic Update Extra 1.2!

Hi everyone! It’s Comic Update day over at Tapas & Smackjeeves!
This is the first Webcomic Update featured on Patreon! This week’s Extra Page is about the orphaned Angel-Born Secondet Lainhart. Like it says on the page, Secondet is androgynous, so I refer to them as “they” most of the time though they are codified as male.
Their story is intrinsically linked with Daikonran’s, even before the angel was born. The Falsebound Angels are a group of angels that fought alongside Lady Lita in the Gryphen-Lyek Conflict. There were 5 angels, representing the different elements that balance all 3 realms. The reasons as to why they chose to get involved were mainly centered around preventing the conflict to reach Earth (thus aggravating an already tenuous relationship between all 3).
Secondet is the child of the Healer Baltha and a human enchantress from Emmoni named Beatrice. Like stated in the comic, Baltha and Beatrice were killed in their home and Secondet was found among the bloodshed. Seccie has always doubted the story given by Tellus, but the records corroborated it. As to Secondet’s past lover, not much is really known about them other that he put them back in a boat back to Tellus’ brothel and broke the angel’s heart.
For now, Secondet’s mere presence helps unlock Level 1 spells for Daikonran and part of their journey is teaching the angel how to improve this.
That’s enough lore for this week! See you all next post!

Comic Update Extra 1.1!

Hi everyone, it’s Comic Update day! Check it out on Tapastic & Smackjeeves!!

This week’s page is the first of the Extra Pages, the perfect chance to talk about the characters and settings featured in this Chapter! I started with Daikonran because he’s the first protagonist you meet (this comic has 6 main protagonists). His design’s pretty simple since he was just released from his seal and he chose not to wear his uniform to what he knows is permanent imprisonment.

His facial scars are gauges for his Necromancer abilities; meaning he’s high ranking but not nearly as high as his father. He’ll gain more scars as he picks up more spells and training. His bandages conceal the full seal with the Royal Crest and Binding Runes (the symbol & the Snake). So long as Daikonran is bound he can’t use spells but in Secondet’s presence, he’s able to access any Level I casts he might know.

Thank you so much for reading and I’ll see you all next week!
