Fred made decent progress in the last few weeks on all the various projects he’s trying to get done at the same time, including some nice work on the visual novel.
One of the big things he finished was the cover to Chemi’s new Megatokyo Endgames novel Dire Water, which will be available in paperback, Kindle, and Nook on March 13. This book focuses on Sunay, who is Mugi’s Endgames character. Give it a try, I really enjoyed the last one.
Fred also finished the artwork for the first 8 pages of the reboot of Warmth and started some coloring work. He still needs to finish the coloring and lay in the dialog, but it’s looking pretty good.
Fred got back to work on the visual novel, cranking out some backgrounds. Above you can see two from Piro’s wanderings in Roppongi.
Fred also continued his series of character development sketches. This is Tounomoto (aka poofy-pigtail girl). She’s one of Junko’s posse and has been seen a number of times in Megatokyo, though not yet named in-comic. Fred’s artwork often drives his story ideas, and he says he has a good story go with this sketch as well.
And finally, a reminder that there are a number of one-of-a-kind original arts available in the Megagear store. There are still some pretty iconic scenes left, and this is a great way to help support MT.
