Thar she blows…!

Hey again! (There goes another ‘hiatus’/long break in between posts!)

During this almost-past year, I’ve discovered that God allows certain thing to happen for a reason. I am still discovering the reason ‘why’ on so many things, but in the meantime, I get constantly reassured to just keep on pressing on, and to see the light in every seemingly dark situation.

So… it’s interesting, yes.

Anyhow, I wanted to say how I finally updated my site a bit ago, organized some things… but… now my website isn’t working! lol -___- (Off go to fix that. Maybe it’ll be fixed by the time you read this xD (maybe not, lol)) Actually, it looks like it’s just the hosting site, itself, which is down… xD Might have to just wait it out, lol.

I updated the “Comics” page with some new-ish art… My publisher for “Mystery of the Black Water” is working on getting online orders for my (and others’) comics, so I can at least make that available for you too. 🙂 Currently working on pt. 2 of that…

Still excited to see TJM (Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie)!!! 😀 😀 (Next year, 2017!!)

I may go back to work on MSI (My Sweet Indulgence)… tbh, it was supposed to be a one-time thing, long ago… but it seems that people like it, so that’s cool!

I also want to work on/rewrite NKTR (Nekoturr’s Realm– I’ve already rewritten some of it); I feel like I’ve been saying that for the longest though… actions speak louder than words tho, yess? So, I just have to build up the courage and just do it! lol. But how to make it not so cliff-hangery all of the time, and give it some resolution in between…? Still working on that… xD

Spiritually-speaking, I have a lot to work on. Me and God need some serious one-on-one time to figure my heart out. But never stop believing! He has given me so many little gifts and encouragements… it’s super cool, actually! (To see God answer prayers on even the little things; even things I haven’t really overtly prayed about, but I needed it anyway.)

God is so cool 🙂 Give Him a chance!

Again, still looking for the good in my dark situations, but as long as I don’t give up (and the temptation is really there), I know that He’ll guide me through.
I know some people have different beliefs, and that’s okay. That’s just where you are. But I believe in my God, not just because my parents believed it, or I read it out of a book, but He’s also something that I’ve experienced, first hand. I didn’t have strong faith for a while– and even now, it wavers from time to time (depending on my situation, but I need to work on that)– but once I finally ALLOWED God to change my heart, and trust in Him, I finally was ABLE to experience Him and some of his direct blessings. But without the trust, there was no way I would be feeling or knowing anything too soon. As stated before, I still have a lot to work on, but I’m hoping that God will work with me through my weaknesses. (And boy, do I have a lot of those!) Lol

Hope you guys are doing fine!! Live your life with no regrets!!

p.s. Oh!! I’m also trying to finish up, at least, the written version of Trunks’ Date. You can view it here!
p.p.s. Dragonball Super is super awesome!! lol (It’s gotten my inner, old-school-anime-fanatic self coming to life again, lol.)

Happy New Year! +11 pgs. of NKTR!

Heya, guys!

Trying something new in 2016; I mean, doing more original stuff.

Nekoturr’s Realm: The Prelude! (pts. 1&2)
http://tapastic.com/episode/250135

Well, some of this was posted beforehand (in 2015 and beyond, lol), but I adjusted the story in the  meantime, and re-edited/redrew some pages (to make it more like the version I made in High School), entirely. So, here it is! (11 pages so far–including the title– but more to come later!)

It’s not your typical happy-Gena story, but I hope you’ll like it, regardless!

TD 171-172 + DBZ Games

Moooooore!

Soooo glad that Dragonball Xenoverse is coming out on Steam, as I have no Next-Gen systems (unless you count my nephew and niece’s Wii U, lolz)! Yay!
🙂 🙂 🙂 Between that and buying Majora’s Mask and a 3DS, well… my wallet is not gonna like me very much in February! (But that’s tax return season at least, lol.)
#adultlife #kidspirit

I really wanna know more about Time Patrol Trunks’ role in this whole story. Is it considered canon, I wonder? I never played Dragonball Online, but the idea still sounds intriguing. Can’t wait! (But, will have to xD lol)

Moar (just two) pages + stuff

Hello! Here are two new pages to Trunks’ Date.

(ノ´﹏`)ノ 彡 lɐuɹnoſ

I apologize for taking so long for any updates with TD, in general (not these past few weeks, but the years before that). I understand that not many people are as interested as they used to be in it, because of the lack of updates… and for that, I apologize. (I don’t blame you.) Regarding that recent poll, you guys really don’t care (well most of you, lol) if it takes me another 15 yrs. to finish the story??

As for the others who just wanted the text version (if I take too long), I at least want to reach a certain point before I think about ending it. Whether I make it all the way to the total end of the comic or not (which, when mapped out, seems to be 16+ chapters), we shall see. I don’t think I would like giving the script to some, and not to others. Too many spoiler opportunities…:P But this has gotten so far along in my head, that it’s like a cancer almost, lol, so I need to get it out, somehow. Hence, why I am writing it all out first. But still, things may change as I draw it, so…

But the same sort of goes for my original works too. I need to get them out, also. And I don’t have much spare time between work-work to do both (at least, consistently). So… We shall see…

I just need to practice, in general, more. XD Whether it be originals or not, lol. (But how will I get better at my own, original stories (and ever be a real pro) if I don’t practice doing them?)

Don’t get me wrong; I would still like to finish it/TD (in drawn/comic form), someday, but if people are just not as interested as they used to be, then what can I do? (???) Now, this doesn’t mean that I ONLY do my stories to please other people– that is what I am actually trying to avoid (being a people-pleaser)– but I WOULD like it if others were to like it… If I can brighten someone’s day or make someone think with my stories/art.

Maybe it is just ME who is not all that interested… I mean, I AM, but, I still need to work on my original comics too… maybe I can do both? It just seems so very heavy to juggle such long projects at once… and I don’t like seeing things, unfinished… (As for “that” one Gh/Vi fanfic I did long ago… don’t think I will complete that one, but *that’s* for other reasons…(other than time, etc… >_> ))

I’m trying to figure out which choice I would regret the least… like if I died tomorrow, which story would I feel the worst at not completing?…

I just don’t know >_>… (Well, I kind of know, but do I have the courage/will to act on it?)

I just feel bad for submitting, and I don’t have time to check out people’s pages like I used to, properly, to thank them, etc., or just because I’m interested to see what they’re doing. DA is kind of… not as big/important to me as it was, in the past… (is it just me?) But it doesn’t mean the people are less important… I just suck at keeping in touch with others. (Facebook/in person is easier. XD) So, the problem is just probably all me XD. I just have to figure out what I am going to do with my incongruent self… -_- (since all of my inner parts are basically disagreeing with one another). Well, that journal kind of came out of nowhere! lol.

Goodnight! 😛 (Gotta try to get over my cold…)

Website is back up! + Other stuff

The website is back up! (Finally!) I still have a few tweaks to work out here and there, but for the most part, it’s working okay! XD

I’ve also added the comic that I did for the Silent Manga competition on there…

And speaking of manga, I’m really torn. I feel like I want to start on a new comic, but I’m the type of person where, if I don’t have enough drive to finish something (or if I am not motivated by the initial thing that got me started), then it is very, very hard for me to finish something. But I feel like I want to… I just don’t want it to end up being another unfinished project in the works, you know? (Not to say that I don’t plan on finishing the ones I’m currently working on…)

That’s all. ( ̄∠ )ノ (Random babbling.)
