"Hello, Hello, Hello!!!
Well it has been far too long hasn't it? I'm sure plenty of you have completely forgotten about me!! But I am back, not with lots of content just yet but I am here with some good news about my comic, Obsidian!
For those of you who don't remember, I have my own online webcomic over here:: the-obsidian-comic.deviantart.…
Now... probably most important thing to mention is that it is actually Obsidians 10th Birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I think it's only fitting to announce that I have been working quite hard on my new project, Obsidian Redux. I've currently redrawn nearly all of the first chapter ready to be put through the digital lineart process and then uploaded onto a website I am attempting to build... I won't make any promises on a time frame because I just don't know how long that will take. I have next to no knowledge of how to make websites and the method I'm using is in fact only in its Alpha testing phase. The work has been slow and I've got very very little beyond a home page for it. I figured I would much rather have the entire first chapter prepared for upload before I went full steam ahead on my webpage... regardless, if you are curious you can view my 3 page website here:: obsidian.pixeltogether.com/
Now, my new pages are only finished in sketch form so it will still be a while before anything makes it to the glorious internet... but in the space of a few months I have managed to redraw 38 pages, with 9 left until my first chapter is complete. I anticipate I can have everything for chapter 1 redrawn within a week, circumstances allowing... I must stress that the Redux project is not going to be done in colour at this point, it just isn't plausible for me to line and colour everything within a decent time frame and I am eager to get moving forward with chapter 3. However, once all my old pages have been redrawn and my website is up and running, I will be opening a small donation feature, and donations over a certain amount can nominate a page to be fully digitally coloured! Part of the reason I am able to work so much on this project is that I have recently run out of work, and I need an income. Things were different back in my teen years, I had all the time in the world to be throwing this stuff out non stop... now I need to make sure I have something coming in. I certainly don't expect Obsidian to become my full time job, and I don't expect it to pull a proper income. But once I have something substantial to show, a couple of dollars here and there if someone thinks it's worth it would make a world of difference to me.
I hope I still have a couple of my old followers still around to read this
I've missed you all and I really look forward to sharing Obsidian Redux with you all. I have set up an instagram account on which I plan on posting little sketch previews. I have no idea how to use it so bear with me. I don't even know how to share it with you.... my profile says 'Obsidianweaver' at the top so I'm assuming that's how you find me!! I only have 2 photos up right now but I'll post up more as I work on new pages
Let me know how you've all been!! I'm sure I've missed a lot, I know heaps has happened to me in the time I've been gone... probably my biggest piece of personal news....I'm getting married!!!!
It's good to be back
