I hate preparing for conventions, fan art takes away from stuff I would rather be doing. I'm pretty close to being done it though, then it's gonna be two weeks of cutting and laminating and making everything into bookmarks, buttons, keychains and the like x.x
As always I won't be putting the pictures of my new prints online until after conventions (which makes my online galleries look horribly dead even though I've been working none stop on pictures x.x)
Those may have noticed that last week I wasn't able to put any new comic pages for Raven Wolf or any other comics up, this week unfortunately may very well be the same and I apologize for that. I'm in the final stretch of preparation now and though I keep going to the pages and working on them I just haven't finished them yet ;_;
On a bright note when I take my drawing breaks (which are few and far between) I've been able to work on the Raven Wolf novels some. Both book 5 and the next origins chapter were giving me a lot of trouble though, as they both required a lot of rewrites in concerns to pacing. For those that don't know the origin chapters is a lot of content that was removed from book 5 of the series, leaving both scripts with a lot of work to be done, the origin chapters that were removed often have a lot of problems with time skips, as in the original version of book 5, Shiya would only talk about or highlight certain events or moments, while in the origins book, I have to connect these events with additional content to tie things together and make the story flow nicely. While book 5 has proven to be even more work, as without Shiya's recollections which took up a large amount of the book, I am left with not as much content as previous books, making me change the pacing of events in the following books to fill the gap. For the most part though, I have finished the necessary changes and hopefully after conventions are over I will be able to start posting chapters again. (only two more weeks, trust me I'm as eager to get at these chapters as most of you are)
Also, for those of you looking forward to book 5, here's a little sneak peek for you all.
Anyway, that's my little update. It's back to work for me now x.x
