Sorry I have been gone so long. ;_; But thank you so much for sticking with this project.
Whiny explanation of absence:
So ... sorry I've been gone so much. ;_; Three weeks, sort of. With no explanation. And I don't have a lot to show from those weeks for various reasons. XD
I've been working hard to finish a bunch of art for others, the biggest looming thing is a giant book cover commission that's digitally colored. ;_; I guess I can't really show anything of it until the magazine it's for posts the final result. But that's why I didn't update at all last week... digital painting is the most difficult thing I've ever tried to do. I read piles of tutorials, looked at bunches of painters I admire, and still I can't really manage it.
And then this week, after I'd painted Thursday's page ... THURSDAY MORNING. Scanner dies. :(
Poor 9 year old scanner. *huggle*
Thank you everyone who preordered books back in December and everyone who bought stuff at ECCC, Sakura, and Spokane CC. YOU ARE THE REASON I HAVE NOW BOUGHT A NEW SCANNER. <3 Otherwise I wouldn't have been able to afford it and I'd be begging for commissions right now to buy one.
So now I wait for scanner to come in the mail. c:
Mlah, this update is complete now because I went to Office Max and paid them to scan it.
SO... SO.... I'm pretty much at the end of a giant owed art pile. I've cleared everything from my schedule this summer except for TG pages, conventions to show off TG ... and then piles and piles of TG related illustration. *_*
I'm really looking forward to it.
I know from your perspective you're like "where did this creator go? O_o I guess they died. Meh."
But for me, the beginning of June is like some sort of crazy rebirth as I claw out from under a pile of work. XD
I WILL NOW GO FORTH AND MAKE PILES OF TG PAGES. BECAUSE THIS PROJECT COULD BE SO AWESOME IF I COULD JUST GIVE IT THE TIME! AAAAAAAA!
I swear TG is building up to actual cool stuff that isn't just exposition.
Maybe next week, more random art, because it feels like I've done a pile of stuff that's in progress and almost done but not quite.
Also next week, A-KON. X3 See you there?
This comic exists in part due to the support it receives in print.
This makes sooooooooo much more sense the second time around! I just found TG... yesterday, I think, and I've read it through twice and I LOVE IT. I admire your art style, and I can tell the story is going to go to some really cool places. I really want hard copies of the chapters just to have and re-read every few days or so. :) Awesome, and please keep writing and drawing! I love TG!
