I've been working on World 20 of Gremlin World for sometime now facing several set backs and the ever present desire to take the story or artwork up a notch. I haven't been all too active on Deviant Art for a little while either due to many of the same reasons, but I think it's time for me to start posting World 20 up there, so in anticipation, I've gone through and tweaked alot of the dialogue on EVERY page to make sure the story is more cohesive and gives a little more insight into the story that preceded Gremlin World, From Earth To Eden.
After all kinds of hardships, I've finally finished a new page of Gremlin World!! And, I think and hope the effort really shows on this one... It was a ton of fun getting to draw Re Zem, Cubic Z and Dai Kiken again. I think Re Zem is my favorite to draw of the trio, Dai Kiken is the most fun to write for and Cubic Z has the most interesting design. Originally, they were all supposed to shiver at the thought of Pai in the final panel, but I think this brief dialogue works better and is much more funny, it also sets the next page up better; so I'm glad I went with my new approach.
Well, I finally got around to updating my desktop computer with a new set up I got from my uncle last summer. It was free and it has a 1 TB hard drive, so it should've been pretty cool; I even got a copy of Windows 8 to go with it.... Unfortunately, looks like it's not so hot in the processing and RAM department, and is going to need some upgrading in order for me to really work on it... I guess it's a project moving forward, and at the very least I'll be able to keep the hard drive for storage, so it's all good.
Thanks to my cousin, I've also found a new comic and anime to be interested in calledMaoyuu Maou Yuusha. The story is nice in that it takes alot of fantasy troupes and turns them on their ear while being very informative on the practical (and not so practical) economics and geo-politics of war. I have really high hopes for this project and am confident that I will enjoy every minute/ page of it.
This was supposed to be New Year's Art, but it didn't really turn out how I wanted it to. I actually really like this piece as it is right now though, so I really had to fight myself on releasing it. I think this will be one in a series, so I'll try to have the next one done at the end of the week for you! Happy New Bear!
