Easter and the kindness of strangers...

So I'm all out of daily-sketches, and I promised something would happen. And while it will take some time before that something actually happens, it is time to officially reveal exactly what:

As I unofficially revealed on Art and Story Extreme! I gave up on my daily sketches because the one I did of a Space Monkey Vs a Frost Giant was simply too cool for school. So I decided that instead of regular boring daily sketches, I should make a weekly sketch-comic about the life of a Space Monkey, in which YOU(yes, you) decide what happens next.

Basically it's going to be an improvised adventure where I use twitter and other social networks to let the readers decide what's going to happen, either by voting on alternatives put out by me, or by suggesting future twists.

And it's going to be my first real experiment in doing a proper webcomic page. Yes, and internet page. Not another blogspot-thingamabob!

How is this funded, you ask?

Well, most of the funding is already in, thanks to the neat little donations button on the side of the page. I've gotten some contributions that are enough for me to dare to order a webhost and a domain name. What's the name? It will be revealed shortly... (But it's nothing fancy)...

And, the awesome Jerzy Drozd, of Art&Story fame, who just launched both Art&Story Supreme and GoGoIllustration, has put up two sketches for sale for my benefit:

Yes, it's Megatron and Storm Shadow. So go to GoGoIllustration to buy them and more!

How's that for awesomeness?

Anyhow... where was I? Yes... I will be launching the new comic pretty soon. But first I'm going to take an Easter break (Though I may write a blogpost, or two, perhaps). The translated Sunday Lie will update on Sunday, but no more drawings until after Easter. Then I may be posting some older comics for a little while, until I can get my head around making a proper site for the webcomic. But I can promise a launch within a month.

So... Please support me by donating, or by buying Jerzy's fantastic sketches.

And... a million thanks to those who already donated!!! (You know who you are).

And... Have a great Easter!

No more daily sketches countdown 03...

So I may have counted wrong how many sketches I had in the backlog.
Ran out today.
Maybe I forgot about or lost a sketch?
Anyhow... to complete the countdown I guess I'll have to draw sketches again.
Like this one, drawn today. Took about 20 to 30 minutes.
Inspired by the Joe-loving chaps at gogoillustration.
And by finding an old G.I.Joe magazine at the office.
Mainframe was always my favourite.
(Possibly because he was the least likely to be anyone elses favourite).

No more daily sketches countdown 10...

So I decided to stop the daily sketches and begin something... new.
It's still gonna be something that's sketched and updated several times a week.
But not daily sketches.
No more of those bastards.

But right now I'm gonna just finish publishing the backlog of sketches,
and set that as a deadline for beginning my...

... other project.

Daily Sketch 14...

Drawn today. Brush and pencil.

Me thinks I'll start doing the daily sketches the same day as publishing them.
Backlog can be used to fill in tough days.

Yes, good plan.

Edit: No. Bad plan. But now have good plan. Good secret plan.

Daily Sketch 10...

Pencils drawn over a few days, cirka 30 minutes inking, pencil, ink, brush.

Making a daily sketch: Mister Ghoul eating...

So... I decided to try filming and commenting while drawing an upcoming sketch. It ended up with lot's of mumbling and some singing and lot of sillyness and a really nice... or ghoulish, rather... ehmmm.... ghoul. Yes. Watch. Enjoy.

It was fun. Wanna do it again. Anyone like? I like.

And... yes... Daily sketches... Is it cheating to make the sketches and wait to publish them and still call them daily?

I mean... I try to make one sketch per day,but sometimes I do less, that is... none, or... sometimes I make more. And I don't have easy access to a scanner right now. But... Should I start trying to do the sketch and publish it the same day when I get access to a scanner? Just use the backlog of sketches for the days I can't do one?

The problem with that is that it requires uploading each time. And it's a lot more practical to be able to upload a small bunch in a row.

What to do, what to do...
