Why so long between uploads...

Why so long between uploads...

I know it has been a loooooong time between my most recent upload today and my last. Since it's been so long, I figured people may be curious as to why. There are a couple reasons. First, there was problems with chronic tendonitis. I simply could not draw for very long at all without crippling pain in my hand. I have been doing stretches, exersizes, resting from the painful activity (mostly mouse use, but also drawing to a slightly lesser extent), I got a left handed mouse, massages, hot and cold packs, I started taking fish oil capsules.... It took AGES, but  I have FINALLY got it under control. It's still very much at risk, so I can't draw

Finally decided on where to keep a blog...

Finally decided on where to keep a blog...

I had been using Livejournal, but besides the fact that no one uses LJ anymore,  free accounts had become bogged down by so many restrictions and ads I stopped bothering posting there, and if i wanted to embed my blog on a website (namely, Kentauroi's website and my much neglected homepage) I'd have to have a paid account. But wasn't really in any hurry to get a new one up and running, so i just let it go.... But I am finally getting Kent going, and wanted a blog on the front page. I mean, I COULD have installed Wordpress or something, but I like the idea of using an existing service so people can follow it and not have to keep coming back to

Updates and things

Updates and things

Well, I was expecting to get to work on Kentauroi by now, I'm having a friend of mine, Christopher, write scripts from my plot, cus I suck at dialogue, and he's better with story structure and all. He said he'd get the first pages done over Christmas, (well, we actually did have a bit going around November, but then we changed the beginning, so the stuff we did initially will show up later) but he got sucked into Steam trading during their holiday sale, and that never happened (though he got me Magicka, Dungeon Defenders, The Ship, and some good coupons in his trading frenzy, so I can't complain too much) BUT! he says he's going to do it this
