There were more of the usual life difficulties for Fred over the last few weeks. But in spite of that, he got a decent amount of work done on the comic, visual novel, omnibus, and other artwork.
Fred made more progress on the railcard scene for the visual novel. He drew some more poses and expressions for Kimiko, and also colored the CG event above. He still needs to do a little scanning and cleanup, but then we’ll be on to Piro’s long walk back to the apartment.
Fred also continued to put out comics on a regular basis. He hasn’t quite met his one per week goal so far this year, but he has been pretty close. It has been years since he has been able to sustain this kind of comic pace, and we’re all hoping it keeps coming.
Fred spent a lot of time over the last few weeks getting Omnibus volume 2 ready for production. He still has a little writing to do and a Stop! page to draw, but the vast majority is off to Dark Horse now. It is already up for preorder at Amazon, Barnes&Noble, and other booksellers.
Fred also drew and colored the very nice N1nj4 and Foxgirl above. Fred draws in pencil, then scans and prints if he wants to color. The Copic markers he uses would smear the pencil otherwise, and Fred doesn’t ink. Fred gets a lot of his story ideas through drawing, so these are a big part of the comic planning process. The originals of this drawing have already sold from the Megagear store, but there are a lot of other originals artwork and prints still available.
We are still plugging away at the visual novel, if at a much slower pace than we would all like. Sorry this is taking so long. Thank you all very much for your patience and for your support.
