Or madam. As you prefer.
I have an update- the reports are true. Volume 4 pencils are done! Every story page in the book is penciled, and merely awaits color, your eminence.
Chapter 10 is blocked, and nearly all of Chapter 11. Chapter 12 is in the works. So I ought to be able to bulldoze in and start shading up a storm. I'm hoping I can KO about a Chapter's worth of shading every month.
To hit that stride, I'll have to take a break here and build a Prelude pad, KO a few commissions, try to get caught up on e-mails and... egads, when is the last time I replied to someone in the art accounts?
Bad, bad David.
I'm being stingy with samples from Volume 4 here because I want to avoid spoilers. But have some random art advice:

Is there a way for both races, both dreamkeepers and nightmares, to co-exist
peacefully without further conflict? I mean, given into account that the dreamkeepers
used to have all sorts of powers before the law came down, there must be someone
in that world that can adjust a non-conflict spell to encompass the globe, turning
the two races into something like negative and positive magnets, in which they
would never be able to attack the other or even get close enough to harm each
other with violence, save for those who live in their own races. Or a emotion-manipulating
spell that causes nightmares to be friendly and non-hostile whenever they encounter
a dreamkeeper, and vice versa for dreamkeepers as well.
If someone could brainwash other sentient beings on a scale sufficient to change
the balance of global reality, I could only imagine the hell of unexpected side
effects that would ensue. And even then the change would only last

Twenty pages of Volume 4 are shaded and ready to roll- ten more, and the first Chapter will be done.
The shading is going at a good clip thanks entirely to Liz and our intrepid freelancers- THANK YOU GUYS! They're laying down the hours of work it takes to block in the flat colors, paving the road to a finished book.

The State of Web Comics + My Intentions with SYACAbout SYACThe State of Web Comics + My Intentions with SYAC5 months ago in Personal More Like This
One of the reasons I focus so much attention on Marvel and DC is because they’re big companies who should know better. They are made up by hundreds of people all chipping in little bits here and there, and for that there is no excuse for bad artwork, bad writing, or bad material in general. They are, to an extent, a bit of a cheap shot, but everyone can learn from their mistakes and I can offer my opinions about them and what I personally would do differently. And if you’re paying money for their products, I think you deserve good content in return, no?
SYAC is, at it’s core, about how comic artists and the comic industry works and poking fun at the various things they get wrong... and sadly that includes a lot of really hot button topics like Women’s Rights, Sexism, Racism, Homophobia, etc. Comics are no longer their own sheltered little thing... they’ve been THRUST into the mainstream audience and all of these problems we or

First, one of the biggest issues I have with the storytelling of this game is that everything is told, not shown. You are told that Elizabeth has a relationship with the songbird. You are told you are actually Comstock. You’re told your character was a drunk and a bad person, but we never see any evidence of it. You’re even told that your character has “history” with another character who inexplicably is in the city and who is trying to kill you for, whatever reason... but there is no prior information indicating that there’s anything between you and him and we don’t even get to see him up close un

Randy Queen vs EschergirlsI’ve covered this topic before in a previous journal, but since this is big news now I thought it best to reiterate it: Filing copyright take-down claims for the vast majority of outlets on the internet is frivolous, futile, and usually results in the exact opposite happening of what you intend.Randy Queen vs Eschergirls3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Randy Vs tumblr
Eschergirls, in case you weren't aware, is a hilarious blog where bad female anatomy (and especially the boobs + butt poses women often are contorted into) are put on display to be made fun of, but also for artists to show how simple fixes can completely change a drawing. It's a great website and I strongly recommend you watch their stuff.
For those who don’t know the story, Randy Queen (comic artist and creator of Darkchylde) has filed DMCA take down notices with the tumblr blog eschergirls: http://eschergirls.tumblr.com/ The reason, it seems, is that he didn’t like the idea of people critiquing his questionable anatomy of female characters

I have desperately been trying to keep an open mind about the movement, but the more I’ve seen of how that movement acts I just can’t in good conscience root for it. I thank all the people who were willing to give me a second chance and send me links to positive things the movement is trying to do... but ultimately the whole genesis of the movement seems to be to harass women OUT of the gaming industry, and the mountain of proof piling up is pretty damn damning.
Like I said in my last journal, I do honestly believe there ARE people in the GG community who DO believe 100% in the goals of the group and who are absolutely LOVELY and WONDERFUL people. But the more I see of how the GG movement was started, how they speak to each other, how they plan to attack and target specific individuals... I kinda feel like those wonderful people are being used, or at the very least duped. And that bothers me a lot.

Everyone is- and what's more, anyone who tries to make a foray into storytelling without having mastery over their efforts merits endless scorn.
I've had the privilege of sharing advice with some other creators of late, and seen some of the (usually anonymous) criticism being leveled at their work. It's noteworthy for being intense, superficially sophisticated, and misguided.
Now, there are two kinds of creators out there. Those who don't give a fig for what other people think, and dismiss all criticism out of hand.
...Those creators tend not to improve.
Then there are those who care about the quality of their work, take pains to make it enjoyable for others, and are receptive to feedback.
These individuals have the most potential as writers, and are also most vulnerable to their efforts being permanently deformed by vindictive critique.
They'll be assured their characters are flat cutout

We were out of town attending a wedding at the time. The cause is still under investigation. (Of the fire, not the wedding.)

Forcing game stores to sign an agreement to pay Microsoft a large percentage of the used sale fee? Check. More motion controls? Check. Inability to let independent-developers make games on their system? Check. Not backwards compatible? Check. Stronger emphasis on watching TV and movies than playing games? Check.

Not ALL BlankI started seeing the “not all ___” retort when it came to feminism. The response was “not ALL men,” usually as an argument to derail any discussion about how badly women are generally treated by the male gender. Since then, the phrase has started to apply to pretty much ANY sub culture/group. “Not ALL Bronies,” “Not ALL gamers,” “Not ALL comic artists” etc, etc. And most recently I saw it when I stated that I didn’t like 4chan because of how vile and vitriolic the website generally is. “Not ALL 4channers” is the gist of the argument.
