So which you want first?
Alright fine. Bad news?
I've gotten in touch with Geisel Industries, who are the people in charge of all Dr. Suess related content/writing. After much back and forth over the details and legality of me making a comic out of the Lorax, it turns out that even if I were to make a copy that wasn't made for the intended purpose of making money.... They said no. The reasons why, in my opinion were arbitrary. Long story short, I could become "famous" from creating such content and would therefor gain a popularity that could eventually make me money.
This also makes me really really sad, specifically because I LOVE the Neverending Story, and have always wanted to do a graphic novel adaptation. I fear that's a dream that's probably not legal either.
I'm sure Dr. Suess himself would be like...yes...this is a message we should spread far and wide.
LOL But a bastardized 3d animation is totes cool. I mean. Not that it was a terrible movie. <_< But...
YEAH YEAH. Okay. So I'm a little salty.
The GOOD news?
The Friday slot that I was using on my Patreon to chunk out for the Lorax is now being slotted for "The Way Home." Which is all mine 100%.
This is a character I started a while ago with the soul intention of simply making because I wanted to do a bear/anteater/deer hybrid. But she grew on me. The name Adonis was a place holder, but a story started to form around her and the forest she lives in. Now, I find myself faced with the prospect of "birthing" the narrative so to speak. So here we go.
This is a journal to let my followers know that, yes. I am working today, but not on the computer. I'm working traditionally on getting all my roughs together of this girly. She's finally got her own name, and a little more development as far as her role in the story goes.
I will be on DA late tonight to post an Inktober, at least one owed commission. Patreon members will be seeing the updated character sheet of my girly.
For DA I'll be posting that at the end of the week. Comic page updates will also be spaced about a week apart from the different social platforms.
I don't want to set up a paywall as far as sharing this story with everyone. So there's a time wall instead. I hope you can forgive me, and/or consider being a Patreon subscriber! www.patreon.com/painteddog
Donating to my patreon ensures that I'm able to continue doing this for a living. Please considering cheering me on with 1.00 a month!
Until Next time.....
