Here’s a look at where I am for the most recent strip. Actually, I do have the sketch done but I didn’t want to blow the reveal here by giving you the sketch so here’s a look at my life right now:) Every year, for the month of October, there are 2 birthdays, an anniversary, and usually a month-long haunted house on top of normal day job, chores, family stuff, etc. I do apologize that the strip isn’t done yet. A cranky and sort-of-sick son sleeping less than normal might have something to do with it, too…
This was my entry to the SNAFUCon art contest. I didn’t even get honorable mention:( Oh well! Just something to pass the time while you await Thursday’s strip! The theme of the con this year was “space”. The character is a random original character.
Yeah… My photoshop is acting funny and I couldn’t finish the strip in time, what with the convention prep and then the con and I’m working on a store for the site that’ll be up in the next few days… So enjoy the cute little chibi versions of Miss Muffet and Dorothy Conglomerate:) Next strip is Thursday!
Sorry about no post. I’m sick and I still have to get through 3 more days of my normal day job. The sneezing, coughing, running nose, etc. makes it hard to draw so I’ll post what I have. TB says he’ll do chores for me next week so I can do some catch up time :) Gotta love him!
The next strip isn’t ready yet so here is the alternate cover to Chapter 3 that I decided not to use. I tried some different shading types in there. Hope you like it! And don’t forget to try our poll and vote for your favorite Shards character!
Well… It is 10:40, we are still packing everyone’s bags for the trip… And the strip will be delayed. I apologize and offer up this sketch of Alice and Velvy as My Little Ponies;) I’ll post the finished strip as soon as I can. Sketch is done but it will really spoil things if I post just the sketch so you’ll have to wait for the finished product;P
I am endeavoring to add new content to the site so, in lieu of a strip and to try and make the deadline of revisions I have planned before our second anniversary here at Shards, I am posting a sketch to remind you all to check out the new sketches in the concept art section. It is the first of several additions I’ll be making this month in commemoration of our second year. Thanks for sticking with us! Also, under these pics will be bonus content or explanations on the character which may also end up under their very own Characters page;)
There is a second reason for the delay of the strip: I’ve had the sketch of the thing for over a month but I keep rewriting how I want the thing to go. I won’t post that as the sketch because I don’t want to reveal too much but I want to bring you the best writing I can do and what is there isn’t what needs to be done yet. We also had to look at our map of shards and shard placement on my “completed mirror” cheat-sheet to make sure all of what we have planned in the future is still okay to go down. We actually put a lot of planning and thought into why things are the way they are. Nothing is an accident, or a coincidence. :) So please forgive this intermission while I regroup the story in the correct fashion AND bring you some new content to the site! New strip should be up Thursday 6/28 (Monday will be another special pin-up for our Year 2). Again, thanks for your patience!
