Blythe vs. the Werewolf Launch!

Blythe vs. the Werewolf has officially launched today! You can start reading here. The story will update in five parts following the prologue, with a projected schedule of the last Saturday of every other month. So, barring any major issues, you can expect the next update on Saturday, May 28th. I’m really excited to finally release this little story that’s been bouncing around my head for years out into the world.

BvtW update: Postponed Launch

Just a quick update, but I’ve decided to postpone the launch date for Blythe vs. the Werewolf from the 5th of March to the 26th of March. The illustrations are taking me far longer than I had anticipated, and I still have revisions to do for Part 2 so I can get those illustrations started. I may or may not have to postpone further depending on time, energy, and my ability to speed up my… Read more BvtW update: Postponed Launch

2022 Yearly Redraw & 2021 Reflections

Happy 2022! I know, we’re already a month into it. I started my year off with the ‘rona, but I’m fully recovered and have been working on Blythe vs. the Werewolf in the meantime. More on that later, but first, my 2022 portrait for the yearly redraw challenge: Yearly Redraw 2022 edition This year I wanted to go for a simpler look instead of the more painterly approach I took last year. I’m working with… Read more 2022 Yearly Redraw & 2021 Reflections

Running up that revision hill

Revision is hard. I always forget just how hard until I dive into it. The good news is, I’m making headway on Blythe vs. the Werewolf! I’m hoping to post the first installment in January, though the exact date is TBD. I’m trucking along with revisions and thumbnail sketches, but I’m unsure on how long it’ll all take to get everything to a presentable level. Although I’ve (mostly) gotten over the fear of things Not… Read more Running up that revision hill

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. And I’ve been sitting on it for over two weeks now. The original plan was to have BvtW ready to post by Halloween, but that’s unfortunately not going to happen. Not if I want to put out something that’s actually readable. Between the post-draft… Read more State of the Draft: Blythe vs. the Werewolf

On changing format

What do I do when I realize I’m having a hard time keeping up with blog posts? Do I accept that I’m just not good at blogging and try something else, or do I force myself to keep up with it? I’m doing this mainly for me, so I shouldn’t be afraid to be bad at it, right? I have a similar struggle when it comes to drawing, and especially when it comes to comic… Read more On changing format

Entering the thumbnail stage

Well, after two weeks of dragging my feet, the Blythe vs. the Werewolf thumbnail sketches are underway. I’d measured out boxes in my sketchbook sometime last week, but it’s taken me until now to sit down and actually start them. 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

Slumps happen

Writing slumps happen. I just wish I wasn’t currently in the middle of one. I didn’t have the strongest start on my draft at the beginning of the month, but after a few days, things were moving at a steady clip. I was completing scenes and figuring out how to solve all the little issues that cropped up in the outlining phase. In the process of drafting, newer stronger ideas popped up that I could… Read more Slumps happen
