I am engaged.
Ok, that was easy! Wasn't too sure what will be my latest excuse for not updating as much.. but... it helped that something did happen : ) It's actually a pretty big change in my life, happiest man on earth? Probably when we get married.., but it's pretty close! XD Though getting married seems to be still pretty far off... just too many things ahead in the near future...
Which brings me to the next topic... FC Revelation issue 4 will be out soon! Please keep check it out soon! i am guessing you all picked issue 3 up? Much thanks for all the support! Issue 4 and 5 will be delayed just a little bit... nothing crazy... but it's on the way... trying to get issue 5 done right now... all on me though, too many things happened in my life and I can't thank my editors and team enough for all their patience! But.... can't cry over spilled milk.. so, onwards!
I am probably jumping my gun if I start talking about my next project.. it was supposed to be something else, something HUGE.. well, that something is happening still ( I hope ) but there's a few road bumps so it might not be my next immediate book... but before I even got to be sad that my next book won't be this next HUGE project... I was presented something I can't turn down... now I don't know which one is bigger XD... Both are probably writers I will KILL for to work with....I really apologize for being real bad with dropping hints.... but.... insane stuff coming soon!!!
Have also been thinking a lot about my work and art style... 7 years into this biz and I am still not very happy with my work... I mean, I get excited each time I think I do something nice.. but definitely not what I think is the look I am 100% happy with ( then again, will I ever be? ).. Although I have to say, I finally realized, and accepted, one thing a good friend of mine told me long time ago. Back when I was still a noob in the field, inker extraordinaire Gerry Alanguilan ( you remember kuya Gerry? ) told me that some day I will simplify my work and all the detail and superficial stuff will just get in the way... I kind of refuse to listen to him back then ( sorry Gerry >< ) up til now... until time and time again, I would ran into deadline troubles and would speed up my work without the usual 20,000 lines in each panel and.... and see how weak my figure work and foundations are... that without the extra stuff to take attention away from the readers eye and hide my weaknesses... it cannot even look decent... Now I think I have a very clear direction in my head. Don't get me wrong, I still love works from Charest, Wrightson, Hitch, Inoue, etc... and would continue to study their works... but I am setting a goal to simplify my work while maintaining the effect of the look... it will be very VERY hard... but I think I love that challenge! And yeah, thanks Gerry!
What else happened that I haven't talked about?....
I also moved, in, with my girl.. which mean I will have many different things I DO NOT like doing to do, in between days when I will try to rest.... but then again, it's not a matter of me liking it or not anymore.. these are things I HAVE TO do XD...
And this stiff neck that is bugging me for a month already... it went away after first 2 weeks and then came back 3 days after that... dang its bugging me a lot -___-
Anyway.. it's pretty late.. if whatever I just typed in the last half hour doesn't make sense, please pardon me, need to sleep ><
