"Explicit Pornography"?! Aw, jeez, guys. You must have the worst collection of porn on the planet to think that was explicit.
A 90s Rochelle Swanson outing was more explicit that that pic, and that stuff got aired, uncut, on terrestrial UK TV (god bless you Channel 5, you made the young Jack jolly).
I believe that, for something to be labelled "explicit", SOMETHING must be visibly going in SOMEWHERE. Such was not the case in the offending image,
scheduleyou probably noticed that last 2 months have been a clusterf#$k. and so will January.schedule in Personal More Like This
my work schedule was beyond overloaded, and this January i have to finish my last issue of the artifacts comic, while pushing the issue 1 of aphrodite for top cow parallel with ravine and sunstone.
this January is where my schedule cleans up very nicely and then i can get to spamming stuff oldschool style.
also.. just successfully converted entire first chapter of sunstone to print format ..and ended up 71 pages. since i will be publishing printed versions that contain 2 chapters per issue... the damn book will be the size of ravine...
i guess im a sucker for the graphic novel format.
now, unlike ravine, sunstone will be available here in its entirety. printed version will have revised and improved writing and grammar + polished art. so that those who decide to buy the book ...don't feel ripped off XD
i will probably post another strip fairly soon, but the real fun starts in february
so this february...coming soon to deviantart near you XDso this february... in Personal More Like This

1 ravine will be published- 11 years in development, finally kicking that off
2 chapter 3 of sunstone will be finished
3 book 1 combining chapter 1 and 2 of sunstone will be reformatted for print and rewrites to be done

thankfully my wife is understanding so she doesnt find me less dommy cause im skipping around gleefuly XD

new strips and updateswill be coming soon. the ending of the chapter is a complex thing to make as i feel that it needs to end on that high note, and i have it all ready, cept the very last 3strips will be a bitch to draw XD...a cool, fun yet complicated storytelling idea to makenew strips and updates in Personal More Like This
but it will be worth it.
and then chapter 4 which will be funny sexy and dramatic... so..yknow...like the previous ones... well maaaybe with a bit more sexy and funny but with a strong dramatic moment and a very powerful payoff...so..cant wait
also almost done with reformatting of book 1 of sunstone for print, it will be about the same size as ravine, same pagecount and will consist of first 2 chapters.
artwork for print will be upgraded on quite a few places, and dialogues rewritten and streamlined by my partner on ravine ron marz, so te printed version will read oh so smoothly
of course, the themes ideas and everything else will remain the same , only will be better worded
updates on new strips and print publishingso, time for some updates.updates on new strips and print publishing in Personal More Like This
next week i will be posting the next strip and possibly another one. , by this i mean the next official chapter continuation. before that there is an alan ministrip i'm working on that is just.. ..well.. something nice, ull see not trolling this time XD
now , on publishing.
so far i have gotten a bunch of offers by publishers so that is not twhat is delaying it. personally i have my own preferance so i will probably take that road.
why it is still not out?
simple. going from the webcomic to standard comic format required a lot of work in creative cropping and reformatting.
this brought with itself a problem with making the writing fit.
this was an impossible task which required me to rewrite the whole damn thing.
flow has been significantly improved. small errors in continuity fixed,(like ally telling lisa that the bathroom is third door on the left when it is actually the second door... SHADDAP THAT'S IMPORTANT!)
a lot of wri

sunstone review XDgotta plug this one, this guy reviews webcomics, and in all honesty i never really thought sunstone would ever be reviewed there.sunstone review XD in Personal More Like This
dunno, just always had a mental idea of a webcomic being something with it's own site XD
anyhooo, here is the video review i must say i had a few good laughs XD
updatesokay, so to update yall on some scheduling.updates in Personal More Like This
we had 2 bad months here as far as technology is concerned, bertween my wife's computer being a little primadonna and my health being a bit iffy my schedule ended up being stockpiled and very crowded.
i have by the end of july to submit issue 2 or ravine to printer for it's august release, alongside that there is aphrodite 9 monthly issues to handle.
after im done with the new issue of aphrodite i will finish 2 strips, and then after san diego comic con my schedule will finally be free. from then on you will see aaaaalot more sunstone, quite frequently, and a definite announcement of book 1 print
till then i will try to drop in some cool stuff, pics and shorts just so ya know i haven't forgotten about you all XD
anyhoo back to work
regarding the slow outputthese last six or so months you have noticed my output here was less than impressiveregarding the slow output in Personal More Like This
there has been a family health crisis which i will not explain in details , but suffice to say it caused certain expenses to stockpile so i had to focus on paid work.
so fat this situation seems to be calming down to an extent but it is not likely something that will simply pass
so i can not guarantee a vast improvement in the near future.
i do not need anything from anyone i am okay, i am not here to ask but simply to explain so calm down as i can see already some of you there lovingly throwing money at the screens ...braking screens..and then blaming me for more broken screens XD
new sunstone is coming tomorrow, i thought i would have it done today but the sheer amount of people in the next strip kinda slowed down the process so yes, tomorrow the new strip cometh, and then the one after it should be done within a week or so given that it is a breaking point and a very impor
