As I watch the jet stream dip even lower, it's time for another update.
First, let's get the plugging out of the way. Above is a preview of the Patreon rewards for March, the Zero Suit Luna (Season 1 Luna) pack. If you want to see it beginning of next month, please show your support at patreon.com/mysticalpha
before 3/31. At least one of these will be exclusive and there will be wallpapers.
Second, I want to discuss comics. I've been thinking a bit more about doing comics and I am a bit apprehensive about committing myself to them once again seeing what a terrible job I've been doing in keeping up with the Chrono Trigger comic. Not only do I have my own furry comic ideas I want to bring into fruition, now I want to torture myself with pony comics. The only way I am going to keep up with it, if I should do them, is if it's for Patreon because that and commissions hold the highest priority on my to-do list. If I owe something to someone, I feel the need to take care of it right away. Right now, doing comics is a milestone goal on Patreon but I don't see that goal being reached any time soon because of the very slow growth of the campaign. Part of me wants to lift that goal and do comics anyway and the other part of me says 'NO, you can't keep up you slow POS!'
Third, Commissions are open if anyone wants one. Please read the info on my profile page. There will be a temporary restriction of 2 characters max, MLP only and simple background.
Fourth, in an effort to try to get things done on the go, I've been thinking of getting a Win 8 tablet with a wacom digitizer so naturally I went straight to the Surface Pro product page. I promptly closed the window when I saw the price. I remember a time when some people who couldn't afford a Cintiq resorted to modifying and cobbling one together out of cheaper parts. These days, the Surface Pro (and maybe the Wacom Companion) is the most ideal portable drawing device. Unfortunately, I'll have to opt for a cheaper alternative. I've been looking at the Asus vivtab note 8 and even if it's not the most ideal performer, it will do for outline and sketch work. There are others such as the Thinkpad tablet, the Toshiba Encore 2 and the dell venue but I haven't done enough research on them yet. If anyone has one of these or another device I haven't mentioned at a very reasonable price (around 300 or lower), feel free to make a suggestion.
Fifth, a public health announcement, brush your teeth! At a recent visit to the dentist to fix my teeth once again, I overheard one of the assistants give instructions for a potential root canal to a mother for her ~10 year old kid.
Sixth, I'm not going to mention the non pony stuff I want to do because 1. you're probably not interested in non pony stuff and 2. it's probably not going to get done any time soon.
