So I finished the thumbnails for Chapter 5 of my comic. That may not sound like much, but this is actually a first for me. For the previous chapters, I never had a complete script and never more than a few pages thumbnailed in advance. Also my thumbnails were tiny two-inch high doodle blobs with no dialogue. When drawing the actual pages I had a lot of delays where I would get stuck on a scene or piece of dialogue or a layout. Now for this chapter I drew each thumbnail the size of a half sheet of printer paper big enough to write all the dialogue in. So this serves as the script as well. You can see a blurry photo on my my tumblr post,
Been neglecting my DA account for a bit. I actually have a backlog of art-y things I've been posting on my art and doodles tumblr, and I'm afraid I will probably start spamming you with some of these soon. A lot of dopey fanart (I'm on a bit of a Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones kick at the moment), but a few things from my comic as well. No, No Rest is not dead (even if it's starting to smell a bit. :P) I'm always surprised by the number of people who still ask about it after all this time! Thank you. All I'll say for the moment is that Chapter 5 finally seems to be taking real shape. Now if I could just fix the stupid website. :P
I recently deleted over nine hundred deviations from my deviantwatch. I had kinda been letting them pile up more and more, to the point where I realized I was never going to be able to go through all of them anymore. A new year is time for a fresh start! It should take me at least four years to accumulate that many again. ^^;
A helpful deviant recently alerted me to my first ever case of art plagiarism! You can see a screencap here -- the "artist" in question basically did a hack job of cutting Tutu out of my piece here, and pasting her on a white background along with a similarly badly extracted Fakir, drawn by some artist I've yet to i
I guess I need to update this, seeing as it's been like a year and a half since the last journal post and the old one was getting moldy.
Um, let's see... in 2007 I bought a buttload of Copic markers. These days I'm rarely in the mood for CGing, so most of the color pieces I've been doing have been in markers. It's actually really fun, and not as hard on the wrists/fingers as colored pencils. But I still haven't tried doing any real complex backgrounds with marker; I'm too intimidated by the lack of an undo button. Hmm... come to think of it, I have a bunch of No Rest marker pieces that I haven't even bothered uploading. I'm so lazy. :/
Wow, now that v5 has been launched I should probably write something new in this stupid journal; the last entry was me complaining about the just-launched v4... two years ago. :P
Well, first off, a big thank you to everyone who's been commenting, +faving and watching my stuff. I'm pretty crappy at replying to comments but I read every one, and they're very much appreciated.
In case you missed this, ~SpikenSanzolvr (https://www.deviantart.com/spikensanzolvr) and :iconhep-kitten: have formed a club for people to post No Rest For The Wicked fanworks. Go check it out, contribute, etc. :iconfor-the-wicked-fanz:
Please take note, though, that if you want me to post your fanart on t
Eh, so just before Christmas I was trying to upload my Christmas-themed Icarus image, but something screwed up, and the broken images were left up here for several weeks. Should be fixed now, though.
Oh, and just thought I should mention: every year I typically do a Christmas image for my main page ( http://www.icarusfalls.com/ ), as well as a Christmas card image that I send out over e-mail. If you are reading this and you're someone who normally gets my Christmas card and didn't get it this year, don't worry; it's not that I suddenly hate you and took you off my list or something. I just didn't make a Christmas card this year. ^_^;; (G
Oh. My. God. I just got back from watching Matrix Revolutions, but that's not important right now. What's important is that before the movie they played the trailer for The Last Samurai, and Ken Watanabe was in it. Ken Watanabe, who played Tokiyori, my favorite character in that Hojo Tokimune TV series a couple of years back. I squealed in a completely shameless manner the moment I saw him. Watch for him! He's the guy with the shaved head speaking funny English. But remember, I saw him first! I was crazy about him way before he starred in a big budget Hollywood Tom Cruise movie!
Er, anyway. That was completely pointless, but I jus
Figured I really should put something new in this journal thing; but I can't think of anything interesting to say. Bleh.
Hmm. Well, I desperately want to see the new episodes of The Big O; but that doesn't show on our local Cartoon Network, and it's doubtful if it ever will. I'll have to wait for the damn things to be out on DVD.
I also desperately want to read the final issue of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, volume 2, which has apparently been delayed yet again. What are they going to do about those pesky Martians, damn it? I guess we won't know until September.
Also, I'd love a robot penguin butler.
Might as well take up s
I love online comics! Here's one I'm ploughing through right now:
Almost as insane as the immortal Sluggy Freelance; plus, it's British!
I really shouldn't start plugging online comics, because I read about a billion of 'em, and once I start dropping links I can't stop. It's like crack. Well, okay, just one more for the road:
A Miracle of Science is consistently nifty. And Caprice is so cute!
