  • Eve Hallow Dress Up Game
    Last post, I teased a little project I’ve been working on while taking a breather from the BvtW draft. In honor of Halloween and the spooky season, I’ve put together a Halloween-themed dress up game! Meet Eve Hallow! I’ve wanted to make my own kisekae/digital paper dolls since I was introduced to them as a teenager. Despite the fact that I have many…many old bitmap files floating around somewhere of doll bases and clothes I’d… Read more Eve Hallow Dress Up Game
  • State of the Draft: Blythe vs. the Werewolf
    Back in June, I wrote about my decision to change Blythe vs. the Werewolf’s format. It took longer than intended, but I’ve finished converting the comic script into a prose draft.

I guess the fact that I’m one step closer to drawing actual pages gives me the jitters. A lot of that also comes from the fact that I’m revising as I go, and let me… Read more Entering the thumbnail stage
  • Best Laid Plans
    I’ve missed two deadlines. First off, this blog post is going up four days later than I’d wanted. Second, April 30th was the deadline for the first draft of Blythe vs. the Werewolf. I completed it on May 3rd. But I got it done. Working on the draft throughout April was an on and off struggle. There was a span of over two weeks where I didn’t work on it at all. And then I stopped… Read more Best Laid Plans
