Comic Update 1.1.45!

Hi everyone it’s Comic Update day! Check it out on Tapastic & Smackjeeves! This week’s challenge was giving the Cupid’s Arrow’s owner a not-so-nice farewell and some comeuppance from Secondet (and revealing his name). I am a little tardy in posting today, the week got away from so I had to play catch-up but I had to make sure the scene flowed smoothly and the perspective looked good. One more page to go for the end of the chapter!

Comic Update 1.1.44!

Hi everyone it’s Comic Update day! Check it out on Tapastic & Smackjeeves! This week’s challenge was figuring out how to create a lighter tone to the last scene to begin the end of the chapter. I’m rather happy with this page and the narrative flow in just two panels. Only two more pages to go! I’m excited to both start preparing for the next chapter and taking a break from posting full pages for a bit. I’ll still be posting on the comic sites, it will be supplementary sketches and chapter notes for both chapters.

Comic Update 1.1.43!

Hi everyone it’s Comic Update day! Check it out on Tapastic & Smackjeeves! This week’s challenge was to show Daikonran’s willingness to apologize and help Secondet out regardless of who the angel is.

Part of the struggle I worked through on this page was feeling discouraged at my own comic. This page took far too long to finish because I was constantly over-analyzing the view/follow count and asking myself if it was worthwhile to keep working on this project. But it’s thanks to you, my readers on this blog, on Tapas and Smackjeeves, that I decided to continue on and keep on publishing it. Thank you so much! ♥

I’ll be working on extra content once the chapter is done, so if there’s something you’d like to know about Chapter 1 or of the comic, feel free to ask and I’ll draw it!

Comic Update 1.1.42!

Hi everyone it’s Comic Update day! Check it out on Tapastic & Smackjeeves! This week’s challenge was to elaborate more on Secondet’s reasons as to why they wouldn’t take Daikonran’s offer without resorting to a wall of text. I wanted to imply what had happened before and how it broke Secondet’s trust in good intentions.

Comic Update 1.1.41!

Hi everyone it’s Comic Update day! Check it out on Tapastic & Smackjeeves! This week’s challenge was developing Secondet’s emotions as they realize what Daikonran’s plans were. This page was one of my favorites to plan since I wanted to bring back the tone and work with the “Knight in Shining Armor (t-shirt)” trope a little more. Daikonran is rather aloof given his circumstances but he has the best intentions in mind.

See you all next week!

Comic Update 1.1.40!

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

This week’s page was super fun to draw just because of the exaggerated expressions and portraying Secondet’s surprise when they see Daikonran’s tattoo.  All the Royal Family members have that seal tattoo’ed on their bodies since it’s not just a symbol of the Cinod House but also a magic spell. How Secondet knows about the seal will be covered in a future chapter but it’s pretty prominent in Emmoni since it was so closely related to the Gryphen war (see pages 1.1.10 through 1.1.13).

See you all next week!

Comic Update 1.1.39!

Hi everyone it’s Comic Update day! Check it out on Tapastic & Smackjeeves! Secondet the angel finally gets some good news after a rough night. I wanted to create some dynamic panels so I cut up the action on the first panel into two. I really like how the action flowed and set up the next page’s big reveal!

Art (re)Motivation

Lately I’ve been struggling to find the inspiration to work on pages because I would like to focus more on painting and illustration. It’s deceptively easy to procrastinate pages when I’m thinking up of new pieces or video contents until the work just becomes too much and I rush things. It’s been an uphill trek trying to draw pages, paint and self-promote while dealing with the constant doubt and feeling mediocre at everything I make. It’s part of the “starting out as a freelance artist” package I suppose and that’s alright.

It’s thanks to my loved ones and you guys for reading the pages, looking at my art, be it illustrations or videos, and reading the blog that I do my best to pull myself out of the (seemingly) never-ending circle of self-doubt and deprecation. It makes me want to get myself out of that gloomy place and show up every day to make someone’s day just a little better. It makes me want to push my techniques as much as I can, accept failures as part of the learning process and keep on learning.

Thank you! ♥ I’ll see you all next week!
