This is “Familiar”

So… “Familiar” is shaping up pretty well so far, better than I really expected it to. The main character just needs some design tweaks and be cleaned up a bit (AKA: Not scratchy sketches) and his “partner” is in the middle of a whole new redesign. Sigh! It’s a slow process but it will get there eventually. The story-line is also in the works…. big time. Right now all I’ve really got is the introduction but that’s only because I’m still working on the frame story. I’ll update when I get the chance; school, work, and the holidays is all very stress-making and time-consuming. But I have the general idea for where I am going with it and like I said, I will update when I get the chance. PEACE!!

Commenting – Does it exist?

I’ve noticed that nobody ever really likes to comment on my blog, like, ever. Of course, comment appear to be rare on some of the other blogs I follow too… It just doesn’t make any sense to me. So I’m going to tag the daylights out of this post just to see if I can manage to get even ONE bloody comment. Ciao!

Look in the “Looking Glass”

My latest creation, “The Girl in the Looking Glass,” is coming along nicely, even if it is taking forever. I guess that’s something I’ll have to learn to deal with since I’m a full-time student and part-time cashier/hostess. I don’t mean college student though… not yet anyways; I HAVE been accepted to one of my favorites though. Anyways, back to the main point of the post. I really am working hard at it, especially since there’s a chance I could get it published with an artist that I’m acquainted with. I’m just so glad I’ve at least got SOMETHING in the works.

An no, no sneak peeks. Only me the artist and a friend that’s been helping me with idea’s are allowed to see/read the unfinished work. All I will say is that if you like science fictional stories, involving the supernatural, as well as mysteries, you will definitely have a chance of enjoying “The Girl in the Looking Glass.”
