so i, again, haven't posted anything in a long time. i'm pretty bad at keeping up to date, specifically on here. i'm working on quite a few things right now.
so, charles & viktor is currently on hiatus, sorta, if you haven't noticed. it's one of the things that i started and was like "i'll build it up as i go!" and well, i'm not really comfortable with that. charles & viktor is gonna be a hell of a fun ride, and i want to make sure of that. so i'm working on building the world around these characters, and it's just great. it's silly, it's fun.
unlike ryu's krew, which from what you may have seen, just kind of disappeared. i've almost completely stopped going by the name "ryu" or "ryuskrew" for the sake of me trying to develop a different identity. at first, it was to escape the comic, as i intended on just never coming back to it. however, that isn't quite possible. the story is important to me, and it's important for me to tell. so what i'm doing, is i'm working on stuff right now. stuff that you probably won't hear about again for quite a long time. but rest assured, it will be there, and it will be fantastic. all i'm going to say is, it's not going to be a webcomic.
lastly, my game, space squids must die. i've thought about this the past few weeks, to a few months. i've worked on it here and there, even posted a youtube video of it today: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uag7vv…
but in all seriousness, i cannot see myself doing too much with this. i might end up finishing it someday, who knows. i'd like to, but as far as developing any further games or anything, i realize that i really don't have the passion for that sort of thing. looking at other people's games and stuff, the fun, the energy of it all, that's not me. it took me a long while to realize that, and i suppose that similar experiences have happened where i was super ecstatic about something at first, but then the interest dwindled (toy design). and that's okay, i suppose these are little lessons i'm learning as i go, i'm beginning to open up more about art and even thinking about what the future could hold for me is a fantastic thing.
this year has probably been my hardest year of being an artist. it's been the year that i've questioned quite literally every bit of what i do/what i've done. from what i hear, a lot of artists go through this sort of thing (if you have, feel free to comment with your experience on it and how you dealt with it/are dealing with it). it's scary, to be quite honest. i've known myself to be rather creative, but for the large majority of this year i've just been lost on how to communicate that through images. but that part is now over. i know who i am, and i know what i want. it doesn't mean that i'm necessarily going to be doing it forever, and i'm alright with that. as long as i do it now, maybe the future has something else in store for me.
- working on comics again, game is kinda getting worked on slowly (if it doesn't ever end up getting finished, i tried)
- charles & viktor is on hiatus until i can make it good
- ryu's krew is happening
- art is neato
