OK. As you all know, Dactrius uploaded the second part to his crossover comic “A.C.E.R” earlier this week. I read it, and was really impressed. This has recently put pressure on my to start my comics that I plan to do (WarZone: EARTH and my Tintin-inspired one.). I’m quite sorry to say both comics have been postponed (for now!). Now, before you all start bitching at me by saying stuff like “Just do it, already!” or “Why bother making this thread if you don’t have anything to share?” or “This isn’t Facebook, stop making these fucking updates!”, I have a few reasons why.
Gaming backlog - I’ve recently played through and beaten “The Last of Us” this weekend (the game only came out on Friday!), and I’ve loved it (Who knows, maybe I’ll produce a comic based on this game). Completing this game made me realize that I’ve got a shitload of titles to play through before next-gen consoles hit later this year (Yes, I’m a avid gamer, which explains why some of my comics will be crossovers.), so I’ll be trying to beat some of my unfinished games before I start working on stuff like this. It might also give me a few ideas, right? We’ll probably see.
Lack of experience using Photoshop - I fully understood Mythos’ tutorial on making a comic layout (Thanks, Mythos! It can be read here.), but unfortunately, I have little to no experience whatsoever on using Photoshop. Even though I haven’t tried it, I would have no idea on how to add muzzle effects to guns during action scenes, or anything like blood, body wounds, etc.
Little experience using Garry’s Mod - Ever since I got Garry’s Mod, most of my time on it has been (shamefully!) trekking various maps with custom NPCS I’ve downloaded, so I have spent quite little time learning to make great poses, scenebuilds and something like that. I still create small pictures (like my most recent one here) and it’s these pictures that I improve my skills in using GMod.
So, don’t expect anything big from me in a while(like, a LONG while). I will still create small pictures like the one I’ve linked in reason #3, and when I feel that I’m ready, I will start making my Tintin-inspired comic.
I’m so sorry for letting you down, pissing you off, or whatever you would want to call it, but bear with me, and I will eventually create something great.
