You maaaa~~ay have noticed that I've not been very active on DA for the past few years. Thing is, for me as for many ancient members over here I guess, the appeal of this place has faded out & most of my friends have moved on to other social medias - where I'm not.

I can't say that I'm super active on other websites because I'm not a very talkative person on the internet in general, not anymore anyways - but compared to what little I post here, I'm way more active on tumblr. So please let's meet there from time to time ;) !
In the meantime, I will try to post more stuff on DA, at least to keep in touch with the few people who're still around, and not on tumblr.

As for MPA : the comic is on hiatus at the moment, because I'm currently busy with an other, very time-consuming project, part photostory part comic, called Ignition. It's in french and it has its own website, you can check it out here : Ignition
I'm working on the comic part these days ; it's a short one-shot that will be translated in english. My hope is to use the momentum of this intense work pace to get back to MPA at full speed when the Ignition comic is over ... but I may as well end up completely drained after this and unable to touch a stylus for the next six months... unfortunately, both scenarios are plausible. We'll see ^^; ! *brews 3 gallons of coffee*

Beware : Doll Spam Time (updated : 2d impact !)

Hey guys

I decided to move my favorite doll pics from my old account ZaoNeS and my website to my main DA account (aka this one).
This means that during the next few days I'll be uploading lots of BJD pics, some quite old... Sorry for the resin spam !

UPDATE : sorry, the intensive doll spamming was on hold for a few days buuuut... it's not over ^^; ! Expect new waves of BJD pics this week-end too. The thing is, I removed the BJD gallery part of my personal website, which was not very user friendly, so my aim now is to fill my DA galleries with what's missing from my website. I apologize to the watchers who don't care about dolls and follow this account for the art and/or comic updates ; the resin spam will last for just a little longer ;). Thanks for your patience !

Dear MPA readers ^^

First of all thank you A LOT for reading my silly comics :blowkiss:

Today I'd like to ask for your opinion and advice on two things :

Presentation and updates

For the moment the comic is only displayed on my website, each language has its own section with more or less the same content.
The weekly updates are announced here on DA as deviation like this one : MPA - pages 23, 24 online by Solkeera
They're also posted on tumblr.
Of course there's an RSS feed for both sections.

Aaand... that's it ^^.

I was wondering if you were satisfied with this presentation as it was of if you'd really prefer if I posted the pages/the updates on other places more convenient for you.

The thing is, I'm kind of a control-freak so I like to have full control on both my content and the way it's displayed. That's why I didn't even consider submitting my comics on extern platforms like smackjeeves and such, or even DA (the templates are not flexible enough, and the submission agreements freak me out.)
And as I'm a not only paranoid but also lazy and untalkative person (how lovely, heh ?), I don't have any FB account nor twitter and probably never will.

But of course if these limitations happen to turn half my readers away, I may reconsider them...

Quality of the comic

In addition of all the wonderful social qualities I enumerated a few lines above, I also suffer from the usual low self-confidence that seems to be the common condition of about every non-professional artist I know.
But I want things to improve. Today I'm feeling exceptionally ready to hear unpleasant truths about my comic skills, and maybe resist the urge to immediatly throw myself into the nearest river because of them... so fire away ^^ !

Question about suscribers' message center

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 14, 2012, 2:17 AM

Read my webcomic : *

Hey guys I have a qwessstchon about DA suscribers account : is it possible, when you browse the deviations in your message center, to display more than 24 items per page ? Suscribing gives one the possibility to display more than 24 thumbnails in about every other section but I didn't find how to change that in the message center.
It'd be especially useful since I watch a certain number of groups which have the tendency to post their deviation in 50+ batches ^^;... (not to mention MY tendency to let things pile up in my message center until it becomes impossible to go through everything without spending a whole week at the task.)

Also wanted to say hello to my new watchers :wave: (well, to the old ones too ;D.)

On a side note, I'm happy to say that I managed to keep a weekly rythm for "My personal Angel"'s updates lately (see links on the right). Now that the main character is properly introduced - as the world's worst loser - in the next pages we'll follow Lisa and her two crazy girlfriends for a little while. I know people don't read "Boys' Love" to hear about girls but I promise that I'll try my best to keep things interesting and funny ^^.

'Myths and Legends' collective artbook

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 28, 2012, 3:54 AM

Lately I've not been very efficient regarding replies and comicking, too much stuff going on irl, sorry about that... The webcomic will probably not be updated as intensively as I intended when I launched it, but I'll try to put a new page online next monday.

Today I want to focus on the upcoming release of the collective artbook "Myths and Legends", an exciting project organized by :iconmoemai:, with the participation of dozens of DA artists :
Collective Artbook Myths and Legends by Moemai
I'm happy to be part of the project, because the theme is interesting but mainly because most of the featured artists are friends and people I admire ; I'm glad to see my drawing among theirs.
My illustration is about Triton, Poseidon's son and herald. I'd like to keep it a surprise for people who will buy the book so I won't post it here for now, but you can see a glimpse of it on the artbook's preview, it's the first pic on the left on the second row. (Please tell me I'm not the only one who gave a silly interpretation of her chosen subject ^^;...)

More information about where/when to find the book on Moemai's journal :
Myths and Legends - collective artbookNow I recieved the printing proof, I can tell you what it all was about those past few weeks!!
I wanted for a long time to organise a collective artbook, and now I did it!!
The book will be released (if all goes well) in two weeks for Paris Manga (in France) and will be available worldwild after that! I asked many wonderfull artists to participate and to give me their views of a myth, legend, fairytale, creature, with a drawing! I'm really happy with the result, more than that, and though it was hard to get all in due time (and size, and...) it was worth it !!
You can see a preview here :

Thank you so much everyone !!

Actually this webcomic has been online for weeks, but for unknown reasons I had some kind of a mild panic attack each time I considered launching it "for real"...

So there it is, my new project called My Personal Angel is now available in french and in english. Hopefully it'll be update every monday, starting next week ^^. Please go take a look !

Last week when I logged in I was like

WHUT ? *Solkeera ?!

Thank you again for the sub, :iconalgesiras: :hug: ! Finally, I'm able to spam my watchlist with unintersting polls and burn their eyes with borked journal css ! What, "the point is to motivate you to refresh your rotting gallery, lazy ass" Oh... all right  ;D.
