That is true, Chapter 3 of the canon storyline is back in business. I'll get it done in 30 days from today. I really needed to take that break. I found that I had all the techinique, the skills, even the fundamentals, but I didn't have the speed.
But taking that little side story quest, I was able to really get to just practicing faster, better storytelling and even found out more on how I like to create pages. Practice really does help. I'll probably be starting another chapter for the OCT Tournament in June, but I'll try to finish that as well.
At the same time, I'll be working on some animation projects. Maybe even try a visual novel, but at this point, not sure when I can finish those.
I have actually taken up 3 battles, 2 are for the 5throom-OCT Tournament. This is my second one featuring one of my comic relief characters Moe. Read the chapter by clicking on the picture.
Actually, doing this chapter really improved my understanding and depth of this character. Before, I felt as if all the characters were variations of me or what i presume is the opposite of me, but Moe is really becoming something different.
I'm also beginning to better understand my story as well. It doesn't seem so cliche and dry anymore. I really think It's because I've been forced to really explore my characters more and really think of their relationship between each other. That, and that I've gotten officially 100 more pages of experience!
Well, I promise to return soon with more.
In an side story OCT battle in the http://5throom-oct.deviantart.com/ with fellow deviantart.com arts ~spw6 against their character Lt. Quindeo, I have put my character, Grand Consul Warrick to fight against him. This chapter I filled with action! Enjoy! :D
And I know at first I said the quality wasn't going to be as good, but I only said that because of the speed that I was going to be going at. It turns out, this was the massive amount of practice that I needed to finally get better at making the comic not only more interesting, but as well as visually better and save time.
The reason that I am bringing this up is because this story is starting to get the same quality as the cannon chapters have, despite how little time I'm putting into being careful and the finishing touches. At this rate, the cannon is going to be superb, once I get back into it. Stay tuned! :D
