I forgot how long it's been since I wrote a journal on here! I swore I updated this at some point but oh well.
Anyway, I just wanted to say how awesome it was to post some more Wolf Song art and how many of ya'll are still interested and all ;;! It's been so long since I've had time to work on anything related to the comic, because I have a new webcomic debuting next Saturday !!
The long and short of it was, Wolf Song simply got over complicated, and I was going through a really rough time in my life that made me drop the project. I didn't have time to work on it because of college, and I was having a lot of issues with my personal art style. It didn't feel like me, I was making pages, remaking them, drafting over and over and could never get it off D:! I was unhappy, with my life, with my work, with a lot of stuff.
So I delved into another series I had started, something much more simplistic and inspired by 'the new me' I guess? I fell in love with the project, and with all the things I've learned while earning my degree, I felt more like myself again and this project became a new form of expression for that ;3;!!
It's called Moon Keeper. Its premiering August 20th on tumblr, and I already have a few pages drafted/finished. It will run bi-monthly (every 2 weeks on Saturdays), and will hopefully make a run through my entire semester and on. I should graduate Fall 2017, so one more year of instruction and finding myself as an artist before going into the big bad world.
But what's crazy to me is the 10 year anniversary of WS is approaching, and unfortunately I have little to show for it. I've always thought of picking up where I left off, but I want to do this project right (and 13 year old me was NOT the best writer or developer lol)
Basically, for now, my focus is on Moon Keeper, and only MK, but I'll be touching my pet project here and there in-between. I may do sporadic page updates when I feel inspired or have time. Possibly in-between Issues #1 and #2 of Moon Keeper, as I plan do only do one issue to add to my portfolio.
10 years I've had this account, and though my main outlet is tumblr now, I still find myself checking in every few days. Even if I don't post or respond, I still read all the wonderful messages you guys have sent me, and I really love and appreciate all the support I've gotten, as I wouldn't be here, a year from my BFA, without this place and you guys ;;; <333 This is where I got my start, and I will never forget that.
ANNNNNNDDDDDD I do want to apologize. I'm shocked after all these years there are still die hard WS fans that have had to wait this long for less than 50 pages of a series. I'm sorry I haven't been the most punctual or consistent artist, but I wanted to make something great, and still do. But fighting a deep art depression, and losing a lot of support groups I used to have, and general college woes did a number on me and my motivation. My comic suffered dearly for it, as well as anyone who was waiting to find out what happened next. But once again, thank you, for being here, for checking for updates, and just for being generally awesome. Like I said, I wouldn't have ever made it this far without you all <333333
