Finally done with my submission!!

PHEW! I’m finally done submitting my comic for the contest I was entering in Japan… I hope it went through okay… I hope they like it!! And well… if they don’t, at least I can say that I tried my best… But I will keep hoping/praying that they do, LOL. Anywho, that has been my life for the past couple of months! The story is called “Baggage”, btw… We’ll see what comes of it (if anything).

I’m thinking of submitting the old version of the prelude… but it’s not really ‘finished’, which is why I was redoing/redrawing it in the first place. But… I think it’s kind of cool to see ‘old art’ (as long as there are no spoilers, lol). And well… this really wouldn’t be spoilers, would it? I might change some things… the layout, maybe bits of the story I didn’t like; but in that case, maybe it’s best to just wait until I give you the new version first…?

For example, here’s the ‘character page’, lol:

But I’m not sure yet. I don’t want me releasing the old pages fizzling out my desire to redraw them!… We’ll see.

In other news, I’ve downloaded a video game called “Silver” from Gog.com. (They sell lots of old games; it’s pretty cool.) I have yet to play it since I’d been doing that comic all along, orz… but now, it’s on like Donkey Kong! :3 lol

Cover of ‘Sense’ (in progress) + fav movies!

Image

Here’s the in-progress cover for ‘Sense!’ It’s taking forever though. (Oh my gosh– my Photoshop file says I created it in Dec 2010?!?!?! Too freakishly long! lol) I didn’t realize it was that long, lol! Wow, I really need to get it done and out of the way! It’s actually colored more than this; I just don’t like submitting almost-done images, lol. Might as well submit the finished thing, right?? (Well, unless, you’re just showing your progress for tutorial purposes…)

Anywho: fav movies! πŸ™‚

Just watched Wreck-It Ralph for the second time (since buying it on DVD; I had watched it once in theaters before). Just as great as the first time! Actually, I like re-watching (good) movies over again, because you can notice the little things that you didn’t realize or find the first time. :3 Yup, so WiR (<- my new abbreviation for it, lol) is up there as one of my favorite movies, along with “A Goofy Movie”, “Aladdin”, and “Muriel’s Wedding”.

Orz… I don’t even own Aladdin, but I’ve seen it so many times, that I’ve almost memorized it, so… I don’t feel like I need to watch it anymore???! Haha, but no, really, I need to buy that sometime (soon…)… and the other two sequels for it…

****Possible spoilers ahead*****
Wreck-It Ralph was good, but I think it could/should have been advertized a bit differently. It seems that the people who didn’t like it were expecting something else (and me too…), like more cameos, or going to different games and such. I didn’t expect them to stay in Sugar Rush for the majority of the movie, but oh well… I just think my expectations were different because of the ads (or maybe it’s my own preconceived notions based on what I wanted in a ‘video-game’ movie), but it’s all cool… They’re making a WiR II (I think?), so maybe that will include some of the previous subjects I was talking about.
Oh, p.s. I had no idea what ‘going turbo’ meant, until they explained it near the middle of the movie. I just thought it should have been at least a little mentioned, at least the definition of ‘going out of your game’, sort of, in the beginning, lol. I kept thinking, ‘did I miss something?…’

I actually made a game-story sort of like that once (before even hearing about the movie… like in… 2008, lol), but never really fleshed it out, much. Well…. I technically did. Actually, I made a cover for it and everything, and made bios for the characters, a summary for the story arc, and like five page examples, but… I was submitting it for a company back then, but never either sent it in (I thought I did though), or didn’t like the art enough to finish it at the time. I’m pretty sure I sent it in though??? lol. I don’t even remember what company it was, lol… anyways, it’s called “Super Destiny RPG.” Maybe I’ll finish it one day. Well, I hope that I do, because I really liked the idea of it! It’s not Wreck-It Ralph, exactly; more console/computer-based than arcade-ish, but now anything video-gamey seems like a rip-off, don’t you think? Maybe I’ll make it just a shorter comic than previously planned. I need to get these ideas out of my head! πŸ˜›

By the way, from watching WiR, I’ve learned that when you’ve got your inspiration, you’ve gotta/better run with it, and use it to its fullest! Take advantage of every moment! It’s hard to always feel inspired, but when you are, always do your best to go with the flow of it, doing anything you can to get it out, and to get your heart out into the wilderness of this world. It can only do good! (Well, most of the time, heheh…) That is based on your previous intentions/mindset, lol. That is a different story, lol.

Goodnight! πŸ™‚

Baggage cover sketch…! Plus… other stuff…/vague

Baggagepages0017cov

Here’s a sketch for the cover of “Baggage” (but I’m not submitting the cover for the contest; it’s just for my personal purposes, LOL.) I’ll have to finish it after I finish and submit the other pages though >< Also, I suck, and didn’t realize that they wanted it to read right-to-left (preferably), hahaha… >_<; So, there goes me fixing things so it looks right the other way around too… doi. (Should have known that though.) Plus, I have to fix the page dimensions and all of that too, lol. Oy. Anywhoo, I had a reallly random but super-kewl dream that I hope I can make into a comic one day! (Hopefully, not a super-long one… but movie-long sized.) Have to do some, er… tweaking though, so that it makes sense (and doesn’t cross illegal boundaries XD).

In other news…

I cannot stop watching this video/listening to this song.


Yup, I’m a total dork. XD

P.S. Go watch Wreck-It Ralph! πŸ˜› (and if you have already, watch it again, lol) πŸ™‚
G’night!

Contest entries + What I’ve been working on…

Baggage--pencilpre

Hola! So, for the past two months, I’ve been working on this manga contest entry… It’s almost due, so I’m kind of in the crunch time now, and need to get it done! It’s about 16 pages, plus the ‘cover’ (but I don’t think submitting the cover is necessary… at least I hope not, rofls). So, I’m sorry that I haven’t posted anything (much) worthwhile in the past month and a half-ish. Stuff always seems to go on, eh… Hopefully I can give you some comics/pics that I can actually post after this! Here’s a preview of a page I’m working on. Still need to do backgrounds and shading and stuff on it though, lol. If I lose, I’ll be sure to show you the comic though, lol. (But wish me good luck, please!) πŸ™‚
