Current Media: Dark Cloud 2

Ok, here's a link to today's page. It's a quick cover concept, I'm going to try to make a low-poly Okami-style comic in the near future.

Media Comment: Too much to do in this game. I kind of feel like amortizing the gameplay out to my siblings... make my sister do the photography-inventing aspect, get my brother to do the city-building and fishing, and then I do the dungeon grinding and weapon building. Great game, just kinda overwhelming.

Current Media: My Neighbor Totoro

I know that you're all sick of excuses by now, and trust me, no one hates the delays more than I. It's been a trying week, and today's page (and last week's page) just haven't materialized. The upside of this is that what is supposed to be today's page is definitely a lump-update, so in a way it's good that it's delayed.
Now I must go collapse. Summer classes have been killing me, and I am afraid that my coworkers and I are breeding a new strain of influenza among us.

Media Comment: Beautiful animation and art. Why isn't modern anime this good-looking? Totoro was made in bloody 88.

Current Media: Fruits Basket

I almost didn't do an update today, but I love you this much. I should be working on my finance problems, in preparation for my test tomorrow (today), but I honestly consider this higher-priority right now.

Media Comment: Yeah, I had forgotten how endearing this anime is. The manga is kinda freaky (not that the anime isn't too), but it's definitely an enjoyable show (animation is starting to show it's age though).

Current Media: Ratchet and Clank (PS2)

I'm having to reorganize big chunks of my comic, because last week's script bugged me until I scrapped it and quite a few more scripts. The visuals just weren't proceeding such that readers 'got' what was going on. So while I am reorganizing, I've added an inside cover and done some minor tweaks to all the pages.
This culminates in the drawing for today's page not being done. The layout was easy, because it's the same as the old page, so right now you've just got panels. My plan is to do all the drawing tomorrow night.

Media Comment: Picked this up in the bargain bin, and I must say, it is putting a serious dent in my study time. Very addictive game, though it can be very frustrating. I wish that there were more things you could wander off and do when a sequence is frustrating you: I keep getting all the hidden things, because I'm mad at a particular ledge or something.

Current Media: Moyashimon

Today's update is the reason that Friday's page is yet undone. I am finally getting that page to a level that I'm happy with, but it is not easy going. :P
BTW, my new design over at Artwalk went live today. There's still some bugs I need to iron out, but in general it is much more attractive.

Media Comment: Mm, Moyashimon. Such a good show. I'm watching it with several bros at the moment (separately, to boot).

Current Media: Hatsukoi Limited

Playing with my new Wacom Bamboo has been fun, and resulted in today's update: a touch of nerd humor. Hope you guys like it.

Media Comment: With Asura Cryin' turning out pretty meh, I have turned to one of my guilty pleasures: hilariously perverse anime about high-school girls + romance. Shows like Hatsukoi Limited never fail to cheer me up when I'm feeling down.

Current Media: Sandman

New SC is up, hope you gus like it. It's a bit nonsensical without color though (how does Evan pull off b/w so well after drawing nearly half a thousand color pages?)

Media Comment: Graphic novels lent to me by a close friend. They're very good, though my favorite chapter is the most out of place (it's the one where they meet up every 100 years).

Current Media: Star Trek (again)

So after some consideration, I realized that updating SC on Fridays would be a better idea than updating it on Mondays. This had nothing to do with me spending all weekend on another project. ¬_¬
Speaking of, here's the documentation on said project. You guys should download the SVN, it's a pretty neat little project.

Media Comment: Yeah, it was good enough to see again.

Current Media: Star Trek

We're changing gears today. After talking in person with some of my readers, I've decided to change my update schedule to SC once a week and a tsholden update once a week. This will give me more time to plan out details, and keep my old-timers happier.
So, without further rambling, here is today's update: a whole new chapter of Holocene Pax.

Media Comment: Wow, what a sweet movie. I would watch this religiously if it was a TV show. There were a few things I didn't like (lens flare) but it was all balanced out by "Are You out of your Vulcan mind?"

Current Media: Eden of the East

And I'm back with a proper new page, to replace the old filler page! Go Team!
Tried out a new hair-drawing technique. Came out ok, but I'm not sure I'm a big enough fan to pick up entirely. It takes more time, for sure.

Media Comment: Eden of the East continues to be sweet-ass but also very confusing. If you're not following it, you should be.
