Hello there comrades, it’s been a while.

Time for a little update.  

Actually, let’s be honest, more than a while since my last blog post on Deviantart was in May 2016. At the time, I mentioned that I was working on a new site and trying to fight the feature creep. The creep being me, as my endless overthinking and redesigning turned a simple implementation into a development quagmire. Long story short, in the end I survived this self-inflicted gauntlet and I can safely say that by the end of 2016, the site mechanics and layout were done.

Finishing the technical side of things freed up head-space to think about the actual goal of all this work again. You know, the story. So for the last few months I’ve been working on (re)writing the story and expanding the setting.

If you follow my nearly vegetative twitter, you might have noticed I’ve been doing some 3D modelling, starting with the Cathedral (because why start with something simple). I’ve been thinking about the use of 3D models for years and I’ve tried some half-hearted modelling a few years back, but now I’ve gotten into the swing of things with Blender, and I must say I am really liking the results.

However, I don’t intend to use the 3D models in the comic directly. Although I have seen this being done successfully in manga before (for instance in Ken Akamatsu’s work) I feel it would not be a good choice for Vreakerz. Rather than using the models directly, I’m going to use them in scene planning. Having an actual model makes it much easier to find fitting camera angles.

The 3D model for the cathedral is coming along nicely and I’m going to start sharing some of my progress here on Deviantart and Twitter.

Aside from learning to work with Blender, I’m also trying to switch from Photoshop to Clip Studio Paint, as Adobe’s software-as-a-service approach just isn’t my cup of tea. I’ll probably upload some horrible first tries in the coming weeks.

So, that’s about it.

Oh, and I’m still amazed that some of you remember Vreakerz, even after a decade.

:shakefist: I feel my self cheated! cheated by YOU! :shakefist: I've started to watch that Vreakerz comic since I was like 14teen years old. Now I'm almost 29. Since then I've finished school, finished university, got normal job, got married, become quite good hobbyist photographer, got second degree and even science degree... BUT NO! the story haven't ended and you never gave me a hope that I'll see the end of it before I'll see my grandchildren. You pissing me off comrade! :shakefist:

Well if you frame it against a successful academic career and and an accomplished personal life like that that.... really is kind of bad, isn't it? As is replying to a comment two months late.

I've "rediscovered" you after some sort of memory shock reminded me how much I liked your work years ago. The news of you being not dead is fantastic! I'm wondering, what is the best site to watch in order to see your latest activity?

No worries, I'm not dead, just terrible at this whole social media communciation thing.
The last months of 2015 were rather hectic for me due to a number of things concerning work and family, but I did manage to do some writing for the Vreakerz story, along with a bit of sketching. But it has not been a very productive end of the year. Perhaps 2016 will be better in that regard?

First, congrats on your Master Degree. Secondly, I'm so happy to hear you haven't given up on Vreakerz, with that said, do you have plans to upload the vreakerz comic here to Deviant art? I mean the older work, I know you've said you're not updating it for now, but it would be nice to see the old stuff again. 

PS. If you've already answered this question before I'm sorry.

Thanks, I'm pretty happy with having finally finished that :)
I'm not yet sure whether or not to upload the comic to deviantart as well as to the comic's own site, but I'll probably upload some of the old pages here.

Can you give a link to the site where the archives are stored?  Not being able to find anything my own, probably my fault...my fault...my fault...(reboot operating system).

Don't worry, it's not you, I actually put the main archive offline because I'm rewriting some of the earlier chapters.
There's still an old copy of the archive at drunkduck, which I keep for nostalgia purposes :P

Welcome back! Even after 4 years I kept checking in occasionally, hoping you'd come back. I loved reading your comic- it was nice to see one that actually went somewhere, and it was heartbreaking when you stopped mid-story. Are you planning to pick up where you left off, or are you contemplating a re-boot? I just hope you keep Natasha. She's one of my favorites. Not only is she interesting, but sexy as hell, and that's hard to do with a reptile.

It's both humbling and very motivating to see that people still remember Vreakerz after all this time :). I intend to get back to the comic some time after I've finished the short story I'm currently working on. Before I put the comic on its extended hiatus, I was redrawing the first three chapters, so I'll probably start drawing and uploading those at a pace of one per week.

Once I'm past chapter III, I'll upload the pages that are already done at a higher pace until I reach the end of that buffer, after which it'll be once a week again.
