Hello one and all! I hope your new year started out fantastic and you weren't too lonely for Valentine's...I hope you managed to find someone to celebrate it with, whether it was a friend or loved one.
New cosplay pictures! YAY! I took these with ~rabbs over the winter holiday when I went home. I'll be sure to upload the rest at a latter day. The internet where I live is not very good and I forget to upload them while I'm at school. But I will upload the rest. Hopefully within the next week.
FYI, these characters belong to ~rabbs and they're from a comic we're writing together. This has been in the making for a couple of years and it has been a very slow process, but hopefully we'll get something up this year or the next.
I guess its my fault that its taking so long. When rabbs first approached me to help her, I was very willing, honored and excited to be part of the process and we've spent many hours discussing and writing and forging this world around these memorable characters from our favorite fairy tales. In retrospect, Alice Liddel and Dorothy Gale ultimately belong to their respective authors, but since they have been interpreted and recreated by us, we have created a fantastic up and coming comic series. So, when she asked for my help, I had one condition and that was that the pages would be inked and toned in an editing program....and I'm the one doing it. As some of you are aware, I'm not very tech savvy and I don't have the skills to produce a page in a matter of hours; it has literally taken me days to do one page and it still has a long way to go. I'm currently using Photoshop because its the only program I am familiar with.
I'm sure there are better programs to use while attempting to draw a comic, I'm just not familiar with them nor do I possess any knowledge on how to use them. A lot of people have given me advice that its more about "playing around" to know how to use a program and all I can say in my defense is "I don't work that way."
Also, like all other comic writers out there, we have our own lives to live outside of this comic. rabbs and I are both very busy with school and trying to prepare ourselves for the various paths we have chosen for ourselves. We try to make time to work on this project. In many ways, our story is still in the baby stages, but I think we're getting closer to what we want, and sometimes, the story and the characters write it how it should be.
Slowly, but very surely, something will be happening soon.
Look for more pictures in the future, posted by me or by ~rabbs.
Thanks for listening.
