So, you'll never guess...

So, you'll never guess...

Yah, delayed again. Had to take my computer down today to fix a heating problem. Still stress testing and making sure my new OC is stable. So no working today. But I got my cintiq in yesterday, and got some work done with it. Working good with SAI. Line art is almost done.

Really miss my wacom

Really miss my wacom

Soooo, I've run into some problems with my new tablet trying to finish the line art for the next page of CMC 10k... It doesn't like the program I like to use to get clean lines. Spent a good amount of time attempting to fix it before I decided to just work more in PS (while looking up prices of cintiqs on ebay...). Anyhoo, I may have to switch to just vectoring the lines out next week as this page is FAAAAAR behind schedule and I can't achieve (partly) what I wanted to do with this page (artwise, the rough is finished for it.) And Shadowlands drop this weeks! And it's Thanksgiving this week! And its a birthday week! Sigh... Anyhoo anyhoo, sunday I'll go back to my normal method to finish this.

Comic Next Week

Comic Next Week

I'm putting some more work into this one, plus I want the design to sit so I can mull over it during the week. Trying to use my new tablet to the fullest, and I had a good idea for this page so I don't wanna half ass it. Because believe me, half assing stuff is my first choice!... Wait, I wasn't supposed to say that...

What was your reaction to MLP being over?
I haven't followed it for 2-3 seasons I think. It had a good run and got more seasons then I thought it would. Didn't really have a reaction to it really since I was moving on from the show (not due to the show, just me moving to something else as I normally do.)
sorry i didn't know but i still do love your MLP comics ^_^ sorry for changing the subject i just didn't know what else to say at this point
No worries at all, thanks.

Hey GatesMcCloud, I know that you don't do requests, But I was wondering about if you could give me a Christmas gift since Christmas is coming up on December.
You already get a gift from me, along with everyone else who follows me, roughly every week.

Instead of asking for a gift, perhaps you should honor the spirit of christmas and think about what you can give/make for others.
