I am honestly trying my best to get pages done as fast as I can. Life is getting in the way of a ton of things, and I'm focusing more on my education than I am on comic pages.

I haven't actually worked on STWOM since the summer ended, and it is currently still stuck on chapter 5/6 of being inked.
The next page of Bionicle is in the works, but I haven't opened the file up in over a month due to the amount of homework I've had a night. I've had a new cover in the works as well, but again, that hasn't been touched for a long time now.
ADBtD has been put on official hiatus since I haven't actually drawn anything for it in a while...

I haven't stopped drawing completely, since its a major stress reliever for me. I have doodles and drawings for the 100 Themes that I have been working on since last summer, but nothing more than that. If it boils down to it, I may just reduce the quality of the pages and go back to having everything hand-drawn and not inked. Or anything... just... sketched, because I don't have /time/. I know a lot of artists don't, and they still get pages done on time. I have more than 5 hours of homework a night, including weekends, and lesson plans to write and a ton of other shit to do that pertains to my major. I'm honestly trying to get these pages done, but schooling takes priority.

I thank you all for understanding and sticking with me through this time. I am unsure when these comics are coming back, but I hope you will stay with me until they do come back. I apologize for doing this to you time and time again.

... god, guys. I sound like a bitch D: I'm sorry!!
Emergency Hiatus

I honestly don't know how long this will take.

I am super SUPER sorry about putting EVERYTHING on hiatus again. But I'm doing this for a reason...




Some of you who know me personally know that I hurt my wrist two years ago during one of my shifts at work. Well, that injury caused my right wrist (dominant hand) to stiffen and make it hard to do anything. I let it slide, bought a brace, took some ibuprofen and iced it. Things only got worse from there with daily activities and constant motion (drawing, writing, trombone playing... etc etc). It took it a while until it started to feel like a bolt of electricity shot from my thumb area and up my arm. While... startling, it hurt and I stopped what I was doing. I fixed my posture while typing and I adjusted a lot (such as comic updates and other things) just to relieve stress on my wrist.
Things calmed down... and I went to the doctor to see what he said. My wrist isn't broken, but he wanted me to take a month off of playing trombone and doing anything really. Wear the brace at night and other things. I took heed to the trombone playing and dimmed down for a month on the drawing.

And now... now it hurts. I can't type any more and I don't know when I'm coming back... but... I apologize GREATLY for this.

I'm so so so sorry.
In the midst of creating new pages

(which are taking me forever to do because I keep messing up; there's a fight scene that requires wild posing to do in just pen, so it's a little difficult), I have been working on a timeline in which these events take place.

I'm not exactly sure how far I am going to bring you into Forseth's story arc, because there are two arcs. The first one is occurring now (the one you're reading), and it lasts over a course of 3.5 years (story time). Then there's an arc after that, and it is supposed to run through the preparation for the big war, The Last Stand, in which a new villain is introduced. The issue I'm having is that one of the characters becomes somewhat non-existant in this arc because of... issues that Forseth has ;).

So yeah. I created a time line to place where events are happening (well, kind of. It was more to see where multiple stories are taking place).

Why?

Because there's another story arc that occurs DURING this one (Forseth's arc starts two years prior to this other one, and one year into it), and I needed to figure out ages.

It was a big mess XD

This other story I'm contemplating making into a comic (whether it's sketch or pen or whatever) is the infamous Kree-Orna arc. (You've met Kree in this story, btw. He goes by his real name, Dunisun, who appeared in the first chapter). You haven't met Surry yet, but it explains why he appears in Chapter 5.

So yeah.




This is me thinking aloud.
