Greetings people of the deviant :V
Well I know I've been much more talking than arting lately but at least I can say I was there...at least
It's not enough I know I know, I wanted to tell you today that I will probably do serious illustration again pretty soon, and no I didn't lost too much skills.
Every year of every day I think about my personal project which is Djinn Stompers :
I wanted to say that from now on I'll solely focus on that. I will do things little by little,
first come both design sheet and a bunch of fake promo posters I've planned, then I'll
do some more illustration and try to use them to explain the whole thing.
I'll do something like a concept art book, with info, design, background and neat poster.
Once I'll be done with that first step, I will put everything I have to make a comic out of it :
most likely a webcomic, I don't know yet about the format and such, but I won't do something like 1 page per week, I want that the day I launch the project people have enough content to really get into it (meaning I will not post the page until I make at least a good prologue) and I will not just put one page at each update, because I find that highly frustrating since one page is 30 seconds for me, and waiting one week for 30 seconds is harsh IMO
But I'm far from there yet, so first things first : I will put down the concept. The purpose is for you to get familiar with the project, and me to set this up right and think it so it became as simple and straightforward as possible to understand.
Also I want to say that it'll content explicit material : probably not pron since I'm not that kind of artist, but you need to grasp that it's about demons in a fucked up city, so it's not gonna be pink at all. Every submission will have the parental thingy and the NSFW tag on Tumblr, whether it is or not. The purpose is so people who happen to like it keep an eye on the fact that sometime it might get really dirty.
There's a ton of things I've planned about this :
- the new protagonist.
- the way Djinns Stompers will work.
- a bunch of bad guy
- redesign of some character
- a clear description of both pros and cons of each characters
( For exemple : Drake is extremely versatile and fight in an unpredictable way,
but he doesn't have much raw power and he fight in a very self destructive way.
Stoner world perception vary depending on how high he is, etc)
I know it might not talk to you right now, but it'll soon as I will illustrate and describe and bring all thoses piece together. At least that's my plan for the next months
A for what it is lifewise, internship is going pretty well, I've learned a lot of things and I work a lot : it's not a coffee photocopy kind of internship, I work for the clients every day and when I don't I work on the company projects, I will even have a little bonus for one of thoses at the end of the internship
Also you know, Paris and such, somebody stole my 3ds with Smash Bros, but I got over it even though it made me sower for a while.
I want to say at last that while I've been on 'hiatus' and too lazy to answer to most of Lilium bigass comments (yeah you don't get that one too I know) I never ever even for an instant stopped to think about illustration and such : it's just that I wasn't able to establish myself in a decent working environment. But for the next 2 months it'll be possible so I'll try to avoid being a lazy bum and I'll, I'll do what I intend to do.
That is all gentlemen
