Chapter 19 released. Chapter 26…still WIP

Ok so Chapter 19 is coming out. From here on a few things are gona happen:
-Action gets more intense, after all the planing, talking, explaining
-Next few chapters…(at least 8) are going to take place in a single night (so lots of darkness, artificial lights and no sky)
-Color and image quality goes up, as I get in the night scenes because it’s very monochromatic so it’s easier for me as a color beginner to get something descent.

Chapter 25 which I finished recently I consider as the pinacle of my work as of today. I took more time to draw it and I enjoyed doing quite a bit of details in the pictures.
Chapter 26 which I’m (trying to) working on, is more painful to me as I’m moving IRL and it comes with lots of exhausting extra tasks to do. So basically until 2 more weeks I won’t be able to draw much.
Consequences…
-my buffer is melting before my very eyes ===> stress, next double posting period going further away 🙁
-my hand is rusting, just when I finally did some cool stuff in chapter 25 🙁
-I’m not able to make details for chapter 26. It makes me sad because I really love the story board and it deserves way more care than that…

All in all, this is all supposed to be temporary. I hope things get back in check soon, and who knows, maybe I can even have the luxury to workout again with my rings…

Releasing everywhere

Never thought one day I would draw faster than I release.
So yeah, I forgot to release…
Chapter 15 and 16 are now available
Chapter 17 is early accessible on patreon for all patrons
Chapter 24 is done
Chapter 25 26 and half the 27 are storyboarded…

Beginning to paint chapter 25 tonight I hope !

WASTE chapter 21 done ! Chapter 11 released, chapter 12 early

Chapter 21 was finished on Saturday morning. This means I did 18 pages in 5 days. More details below the pic

Needless to say my private life is dying (as I draw all this on my personal time).
Once I master this production pipeline, I hope I can have longer nights, work out again at least, then maybe even have a social activity !

I got those scott robertson books near my bed, hardly red 10 pages in a few month. I definitely want to dig in when I can. I wonder when though…

Also in chapter 21 I did something new. Since I was fast enough, I decided to keep aside one page I had a real good feeling with.

1-I wanted to bring it to an illustration level of detail and see where I’m at now. It’s like measuring your FTP (Funtional Threshold Power, cyclists will know what I mean).
2-And even not for measuring my progress, I wanted to attack the topic of detailing and doing illustration again, now that I have been focusing so much on drawing fast…
3-Also a this allows me to feed my patrons with extras. This is for all patrons, the only pledge I made is the 1$ and I’ve not charged anybody yet. So basically for now you can be my patron for free. This will keep at least until I reach 100 patrons.
4-Wanted to remove some dust from my youtube channel, see if I can bring readers to follow me there also…

Chapter 9 released, Youtube update, Patreon update

Hey guys,
Chapter 9 begun releasing on the net, so chapter 10 goes early access on patreon.
I’m releasing it one page a day on webtoon and facebook, but you can already read it all in one go here.
For the youtube update. I timelapsed chapter 18 page 1 painting process.
wait ??? Chapter 18 ?!!
Well yeah as you saw in previous updates, I decided to stop publishing until webtoon catches up, but I went into painting frenzy so I’m way ahead of chapter 9 as I’m publishing it now.

I hope you enjoy the video, it’s always a lot of extra effort to get (even such a simple timelapse) it done.

About the patreon update, I was not happy with the rewards, I decided to simplify it until I get something better. So until then there is only the 1$ reward !

Chapter 13, done …

I’m one day earlier than I planned. One page got postponed for another release…
This is the second chapter I do in a one week deadline…as always it’s done aside from work, so basically I draw at lunch break and nolife in the evening till 2AM…
Nights are averaging 4h30 of sleep and I have no time to do whatever it is that is not draw a page of WASTE. I don’t even do chara design, I just go with the flow.
And on top of all, I Slacked off workouts a lot…
not to mention I’d like to do videos about making of like before, comic strips to joke around with readers etc…
Handling this on the long run seems destructive to me…I’m thinking of doing a release every 10 days (or every other week) rather than every week.

Still need to find my balance.
But for now, chapter 14 here we go !

Chapter 12, Done !

This is a new speed record…chapter 12 is 11 pages long, like chapter 11, but I drew this faster (Begun storyboarding last Sunday, finished today, Saturday…this means it’s my first one week release !!!)

The workload is huge and the pace is really intense. I hope I can get faster and get nights longer than 5 hours again in a near future.

However, Tomorrow scripting chapter 13 !
