You know, when I promised you that I would come back uploading, I didn't consider how much lazy (and totally not organized) I am. But still, I managed to get some pages done.
So, where are the so long awaited comic pages, you may ask.
Well... I had a little (and I literally mean "little") problem. After much work, long nights passed while drawing and inking, I stumbled upon a particular obstacle, the kind of problem some of you may know: my scanner is too small.
Yes, my scanner, which served me for years now, has proven to be too small even for a sheet of fabriano A4 paper. Hooray.
Well, now what, you may still be asking. The answer is simple: I can either take my work to a professional typography and scan it there, or simply buy a bigger scanner.
After a bit of thinking, I decided I'll go for a new scanner. Why is that? Well, considering the amount of traditional pictures I make, taking them to a professional would mean spending time to get there, get a proper scan and, obviously, pay for it every time. So, in the end, a new scanner will simply repay itself over time.
But why am I talking about this in such a detailed paragraph?
I'm telling you this, guys, so you know why right now I'm asking you to be a little patient: I want my pictures to have at least a decent quality, so I'm not just going to take pictures of them.
I know some of you aren't exactly dying to see my six pages comic, and to you I'm now communicating that, while I'm waiting for a new scanner, I'm going to draw a couple of tiny pictures, some of them introducing the comic's characters and maaaybe a tiny dragon or two (man I miss them...).
Now some news...
First of all, I decided (after a long, long thinking) to try and learn to use some digital medias. I just started going to a short class about Photoshop, and in the near future I'll start experimenting with it and maybe posting the best results.
About unbelievable decisions: I'm in the process of creating my own (ugh...) facebook page...
Yyeeaahh... I don't like the idea, and I don't like facebook either (and by that I mean not a single bit), but in the last months, I realized that most people (or, at least, most of the ones I spoke to) tend to consider facebook almost more professional than an official website, so it seems that I'm going to create a page (but not a personal account. Just no). Anyway, I'll post the link here once it will be open. Just know that it won't take the place of dA, and that I'm still going to submit my stuff here
So, stay tuned in the next days for the tiny drawings and, hopefully, the complete six pages black and white comic "Gorgon's Eye"
Thanks for your patience, I promise it'll be repaid
