But I actually have a couple main priorities today. First-off, I want to actually get my blog up and running. I fell over a month behind the last time I went a few days without updating it, and that shouldn't happen again.
Second-off, I only got one page done on Red Hood Rider. It's a GOOD page (albeit not perfect--I didn't quite get the imagery I wanted in the transforming sequence, the last panel was supposed to be more zoomed out with the bow half-strung, the image of Ruby was supposed to not cross paths with the panels except at the bottom yet there are some spots where it does and therefore she gets covered, and there are some minor colorings I didn't do like coloring her hair so that it's more brown than blonde in black-and-white appearance, not to mention her bow-hand glove being left uncolored, plus as a final note, the text at the bottom is squashed together when I could have moved it over to the left and given it room), but no matter how good a page it may be (it's as close to perfect as I can get, in spite of the flaws I just mentioned: for the given length of time I worked on it and the lack of available resources, the quality is EXCEPTIONAL), one page is...one page.
So as I'm writing this blog, I'm starting up Firefox (which was closed during vacation as part of trouble-shooting via a reboot) and hopefully, I'll be able to get things up and running again soonish.
I also still have a few miscellaneous tasks that I need to do, which I might as well talk about. I've talked about drawing Red Hood Rider. To meet my January release date, that is in fact a top priority of mine, but it's far from the only one. I still need to upload the completed page. (Plus, something I want to try: since all my pages are too large in PNG format except at the size of 800 to be uploaded onto CF, I want to see if JPEG versions of them would be small enough to make it.)
Then I also want to upload the magical girls that I made earlier, during the power outage. Then, there's also the fact that I've still got some script-noting to do, about some extra chapter/episode revolving around Rin, beyond the school dance and formal date episodes already planned, which deals with her getting abducted in an effort to draw out Ruby to a fight. (Rin's reaction to the whole thing is where the character depth gets put in, and it's made to help you love her as a character all the more.)
Beyond that, I still have to actually write out the script in detail for Episode 2. I have it still in my mind, more or less, and it's pretty awesome, but I still need to write it, because after I finish the first Episode (the prologue I'm working on now), it's up next for drawing.
That doesn't even begin to go into my writing. I STILL want to do my novel as the light novel, but I need to set aside the time for that. But furthermore, I want to get my novel actually finished and written. Especially since, superstitious as this may be, I received a fortune cookie when out at the Chinese Restaurant which said that I would inherit a large sum of money from an unusual source...and, well...writing is an unusual source of money, and I think my novel actually may be good enough to make that kind of money if I can get it to the point of publishing. But...for that? For that, I need to actually...well, WRITE THE DANG THING.
Which...I haven't been.
Soyeah. I've got a lot of work on my plate today, and that's assuming I don't get distracted. (For instance: huge distraction potential would be me looking at the TVTropes page for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It's something I traditionally do after watching a movie, look at its TVTropes page, because TVTropes can give you a great enrichment of the film. It allows you to see all the subtle nuances you missed on a first viewing, opens you up to seeing extra moments, answers most of your questions about the movie via fan guesses/Word of God about aspects of the movie you weren't happy about, gives moments of brilliance that you hadn't seen before, and plenty of trivia among other great factors. It is also, depending on how recent/well-known a film is--older works and/or obscure works have shorter pages which can lessen the length time/width-wise--at least two hours' a time sink, less for smaller things, much more for a film like, say, Avengers in scale, which...Star Wars is.)
Also, as I write this, I'm updating my blog, so have some dump of my tablet drawings.
