Still alive, yo.

Have been gone for a while, mainly due to real-life problems (financial and otherwise). Am back now, sort of. Still a bit depressed, but otherwise okay.

So. Mostly so I can keep track of them myself, here's a listing of current projects.

1. Black Label
Original manga, to start sometime next year. Am currently in the planning phase, doing the character designs, the world building, and collecting ideas for the script. I have a clear idea for the plot of the first arc -- a detailed synopsis is next on my list, and then the script.

I'm really in love with this project. The more I think about it, the more I want to devote my time exclusively to it. However, I don't feel that I'm ready to tackle it right now. I want it to look professional and clean and perfect, and I'm just not there yet. I need to do one or two practice doujinshi first. So.

2. Cats and Dogs [doujin, Sesshoumaru/Kagome]
The script is finished for this one, and I like the three pages I have so far, so now that I have proper inking supplies and similar I have picked it up again as a practice piece. As it mostly takes place in a confined space, it's not as difficult to draw as the other doujin project I've started. Besides, I like the story -- it's mostly humorous, cute and slightly mushy. I can relax while drawing it.


3. A Jounin In Tokyo [doujin, Kakashi/Kagome]
I really need to find a better title... This is a slightly darker, more introspective doujin about Kakashi's life in Tokyo. It's an AU set in the Serendipity universe, dealing with the aftermath of the story.

I started it mainly to force myself to draw a lot of backgrounds -- Kakashi's moving around a whole lot in the first part, so I have to draw buildings and streets and things, and I'm currently driving myself crazy because it seems like too much of a challenge and I don't feel that I'm able to do it properly. I'll also practice the use of tones with this one (I'll do them on the computer since I'm really broke right now).

Tones scare me. There are so many technical details involved in getting them just right for print, it's terrible. *cowers*

4. Serendipity [story, Kakashi/Kagome]
This is my comfort project, if there is such a thing. I'm taking it rather slow, but that's because I want to get the characterization just right. Having a beta would be lovely though, because I don't know the Inuyasha fandom as well as I'd like and besides, I'm rather unsure whether my characterization of Kakashi is okay or not.


In other news, I'll be taking a nude drawing class two weeks from now. It's two weeks of drawing for seven hours a day, so I hope I will have improved a little when I'm done with it.

Excited to see the stuff you come up with. :D Nude drawing class? If I could draw, I'd be all over that. ;)

Actually, it's because I can not draw well enough that I'm taking it. I hope it'll help me get better. *wibbles*

I also hope the models aren't ugly.

I eagerly anticipate the products of this venture.
