I thought I might update you on my current situation and my future projects, and see your opinions on it.
First of all, I'm sorry it's taking so much for me to reply to your comments, but this is an extremely busy time of the year, and I have 2 exams in the next week (one in two parts, even). I always read all your comments though, and they are always most appreciated! I'll answer to everyone in due time, that's sure.
Second, I decided to seriously improve my artistic skills, and that means I'm trying to draw at least a bit every day, even if it's just tiny sketches. Despite studying 8 hours a day I still managed to find some time to dedicate to drawing each day, and that is really motivating! When I'm going to have more free time I should be able to increase my pace if I focus!
Third, I decided to dedicate most of my time to comics. I'm not sure everyone approves, maybe some of you would rather see illustrations than pages that take ages to be completed, but it's something I really
want to do.
There are so many things about my setting and characters I want to tell, and that is the best way I know to bring everything to life, if that makes sense. I'd really like to post an average of 2-3 pages per month, even if I'm not sure I'll manage.
(I'll also try to take my scanner with me next time I go back home, so I can post full drawings regularly as soon as they are ready).
Another thing I wanted to tell you regards the "Secret Project"
I was working on with my friend
. Even if I kept drawing illustrations about it, we never worked on the setting again for various reasons, unfortunately.
However, LieutenantHawk gave me the permission to develop the setting by myself and use the characters we created together, which is something I'll be forever grateful for, considering how attached I am to them (Shadi in particular).
I'm sure the story would have been very different if we both worked on it, but I'll still try my best to make sure its potential won't go to waste.
(....which means I also started writing a story with Shadi as protagonist. It's still in script stage, but I plan to make a comic out of it once I finish Conflicts
, or maybe work on both of them at the same time.)
Aaaand that's it, sorry for the rant!
Thanks for reading, and I'd be glad to read your thoughts about all of this!
