Mood: Daily Needs
It seems these days I only check in to apologize for insane delays.
Second chances has only 3 chapters left, and those are 80% drafted with the exception of a few pages which are just notes. They only need the text to be added in.
Honestly I was on vacation last week, lots of sun, awesome pool, and a pretty beach. I took my laptop with me to work on the fancomic, but who am I kidding... I couldn't sit still in the evenings. The boyfriend and the constant visits from guests and friends didn't help. And I'm travelling to Scotland in less than 3 days. I was so tempted to sit and fill in the text after rereading the last 3 chapters today but, man, I have to pack, finish up a few things, buy some winter clothes, and replace my dead phone. I don't know how long I will stay in Scotland. The plan is one month with a possibility of that turning into 2 or 3. But I plan to be home with my folks for Christmas. I draw a lot when I'm at my family's house. It's very quiet and I have my little corner and no boyfriend or distractions around. I intend to post chapter 16 this December.
People might think it's silly that I have the fancomic somewhere filed in the back of my head, but I REALLY HATE to leave things unfinished regardless of what people think about it, even those close to me who think I should have dedicated the time I gave SC working on a real comic. I did enjoy working on SC a LOT. I think it was a good thing. I didn't have a story I wanted to draw or the skills to draw it. Dragon Age: Origins inspired me. It was fun, I experimented, I learned a lot, at some point, I gave it around 3 to 6 hours of my time weekly for three months straight. It was good drawing practice that I didn't get anywhere else. And I met a lot of people on deviantArt, especially artist and art lovers. I rarely got to meet people like that in real life before I started travelling.
Anyways, I wanted to thank the people who stuck around this long regardless of whether I was around or not. And thanks to the people who leave comments and faves and watch my page.
For someone who loves hang gliders, I'm terrified of airplanes. I have to take two flights to get to Scotland and I'm super stressed.
See you when I get back.
