Well I’ve been working on Ablution still- and I suppose it might be a good idea to try to differentiate the content between the two series since Ablution is for more mature audiences. This will change in the future though depending on the stories that’re being put out so, it’s kind of nipping it in the bud and what not.
Another thing is- that due to a lot of positive feedback I’ve been getting- the next book is going to be mostly in black and white. This is because I find that I can do it a lot and finish it a lot faster and add more content and detail, and a lot of people are telling me they like it a whole lot more, so to give you an idea what it may look like, something similar to the image on the right. And kids- don’t hack!
So I’ve gotten a lot of good feedback on that- and I will be continue the same winter/xmas special at a later date, so stay tuned for that.
Although I do enjoy coloring- I find that this sort of gives me a new insight and faster production time as well. So hopefully this will all get done in a better timely manner rather than the snail pace I’ve been keeping lately.
Until the next post, keep your eyes on twitter and what not- I’ll probably end up posting an upcoming promotion soon so come back every so often just to check! 😀
I’m still working on book 3- an illness I had about a month ago did set me back a bit-so hopefully now I’ll finally get on track. The ablution web comic also started up but it’s impact on my work isn’t anywhere near as great so that’s also a good thing. I also placed a link for it up above under Free stuff! If not just click this link!
The web comic for now will remain under a sunday publish time (well, Sunday Midnight which might still be saturday for people so-) Although if it changes I will mention it! thanks!
So, Dei Ex Machina: Ablution should be up tonight at Midnight Eastern- but I’m not clear on the exact clock work on my site- it might even be up sooner than that! So I want you to feel more than free to check it out if you’d like, I also got a new URL for it as well at www.runie.net or www.runie.org whichever you’d like!
Now I feel I should warn you as well- the site is still under construction so if anything weird happens at all when you go visit- please feel free to clear your cache/close your browser whatever or wait 10 minutes and show up again. If there any issues I’m sure I’ll either post it here, or on twitter!
Or if you’d like just come here for any news! I will also be posting an update notification here whenever the comic is updated.
Now I should WARN you, that this particular comic will probably contain more mature content than Zenith does- such as course language, mild nudity- etc. So if that’s something you have an issue with for whatever reason then uh, don’t read it.
Other than that enjoy! Please feel free to leave a comment, tell your friends- etc 😀
I’ve been busy working on Book 3 of Dei Ex Zenith, and I have to say I’m very excited about this book. I feel like there’s going to be a lot of events and a lot of exciting stuff is going to happen within the story, a lot of questions may be answered for some people so I’m really hoping a lot of people will stay tuned for it.
I am also using a different technique this time in terms of sketching out pages, using new materials and what not, and the designs will be slightly different, I wanna try to get as much detail as I can within the book itself this time and hopefully get it finished before summer time or before May or June. Of course, I don’t want to say anything for sure, but that’s what I’m aimming for, the summer heat always takes a toll on my work and makes things go slower so if that’s done at least it’s something for those who have summer vacation and such!
I have put up some pages too of the character design, I’m not completely happy with how rough the sketches are but I thought I’d place them up anyway, also I’ve added the twitter feed up here so it will be updated constantly so be sure to check back often in case you’re lost in terms of where I am. I know it’s been a while since I updated too, I get busy and sometimes I forget ackk 🙁 But I have a large majority of the script written out, the first page is already inked and everything and I am starting on the second page as of today as I continue to color and edit.
I am also working on other ideas like a mini-series webcomic a part of Dei Ex: Zenith as well in the future among other things which will be posted up here in good time too so I will keep you up to date on that, as well as any future sales related to my books on Amazon or any other location that carries it.
I will try to keep you up to date as soon as I can, but when in doubt feel free to check out twitter on the side bar or any other of my social media outlets!
I haven’t updated in a little bit I know, sorry for those who are coming here expecting to see a new blog. I’ve been busy working on Book 2 of Zenith, trying to get most of it finished before the end of September.
I’m expecting to get 4 wisdom teeth removed by the end of the month- so as a result I may not be doing much in terms of working on my book for at least a week I expect. I don’t want to say never- but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Maybe more depending on what happens too but I sure hope not c.c; I don’t want any on expecting pain to come up… x_x;
So as a result, Book 2 probably won’t be out until October. This is also due to the fact of many other things such as editing, layout and cover concept and design. I also want to make some improvements to existing pages that seemed a little rush and may add some here and there to get a nice smooth continuity.
Although as you can see I do have previews of Book 2- so it’s a little more than half finished. I also want it to be larger than the first book, so I’m hoping to have more content and pages than the previous issue. Story wise, there will probably be some surprises too I think you’ll find-it may not be what some people are expecting at all, but I’m hoping it’ll be just as compelling!
The genre won’t change however; it will still be comedy/sci-fi/fantasy. So that’s not to worry. I also plan on coming out with another t-shirt sometime too, but the book comes first!
As a result I can’t promise I will be able to update every Monday, Wednesday and Friday as I did before since I’ll be so distracted and busy. There will probably not be many updates on my blog either with mentions of my status- I’ll however post it probably on my Twitter account.
So that’s it for the time being- I’ll be sure to keep you posted until then! 😀
