So, I've had some time to relax, and believe it or not, even after only a day, I'm ready to get to work on stuff I want to do. Perhaps I'm crazy, but I dunno. I just wanna work on this stuff. Yesterday I was drawing like a woman possessed, I swear. I got a birthday present done, 6 pages sketched out for my Nuzlocke, Set 4, and still had time to do stuff around the house. I even spent time playing cards with the family. And role-playing. Lots and lots of role-playing. Though I'm not done yet.
Today was mostly just playing cards with the family, again, and playing the PS3 now that I've gotten it away from my brother. It's STAYING in my room so I can go back to it whenever I want. It'll help keep me motivated. Especially for one of my projects.
Speaking of, I wanted to share those with you. These are all put after commissions, btw.
I'm going to be keeping up with Trials In Kanto and Freelance. They're my second priority, but I'm going to update them ASAP, since I've got so many pages sketched of the former and the latter I have two pages sketched I haven't done anything with. So they'll be updated soon. A double update for each at this rate.
After those, I have a few other projects in mind. Such as a special for Sly Cooper, something from my perspective of the games. It's a controversial topic, and I'm sure I'm going to be hearing something from both sides. Penelope's Betrayal. I have something planned that I want to share with the fan-base. I'll be expecting some flames, but I hope I don't receive too many. I'm not sure if I'll be doing it as a comic or just writing... I think I'll do the former, but I'll at least need to write out what I'll be doing anyway, so... we'll see.
The next project I have in mind is something special. Swat Kats. They've been on my mind for awhile. This one might be put off a bit longer, as the others will take precedence but I do love this idea and I'm not going to let it go. I've created back-stories for the main characters, protagonists and antagonists alike, to cover more than what the show did. I'll be starting in chronological order, so, being over 800 years old, the Pastmaster is going to be first in the Origins Issue. Then I'm going to re-do the episodes in comic format as well, expanding and delving more into what they didn't show. It's going to be darker, since most of us are 90's kids and we've grown up. Yes, I'm going to try and treat this like a real comic, like DC or Marvel. We'll see how I do.
Now, my primary project for the summer... I decided to save this for last just to see how many people actually take the TIME to read through my journals. And for those comic artists on my watch list, you'll be glad you stuck around.
There's a manga contest held by Shonen Jump. I'm serious, it's HUGE. They're picking four winners. There's going to be a "Most Popular" award in three different languages, English, Japanese and Chinese, and a Grand Prize winner. Each of these winners will win 500,000 yen. In American dollars, that's a few hundred short of $5000. You guys can translate to your own currencies if you're interested.
It's due at the beginning of October, almost right after I go back to school. So I'll be working my tail off on this one primarily. This was what that last poll of mine was for. My special project. I'm still working on a title for it, but my current placeholder is Price of Freedom. It's corny as fuck considering the main character's name is Freedom, but as she goes from a Demon Slayer to a Protector of all, especially demons, and how it happens, it kind of fits... but I'll talk with people on that.
If you want to know more about it these are the spec for the contest, and other details.
I hope you guys have fun, and will watch out for what I do. If you want to join up, I wish you the best of luck!
So, hope it was worth reading all this, even if it was for that last bit of news. I hope you guys will look forward to my summer projects. Thanks guys!
