I've been horribly absent on here lately, I know. I spent about two hours today catching up with comments... whew!
And I still have thousands upon thousands of deviations to go through as well.
I do have reasons for my absence, though! Two months ago, my arm suddenly started hurting. It turns out that sitting at a desk like normal people, with my tablet or drawing pad in front of me, screws up my arm. So I couldn't use it at all for about a month, and then it started getting better. I'm almost back to normal now, but it's been sloooow. And I've been saving up the not-sore time for my commissions and other work, which I'm lagging behind on as well, and that left nothing for typing replies and comments on here.
Thank you all for the birthday wishes! I know it was three months ago, but still. I did see them all on the day and they made me really happy!
I replied to them all now, silly as it feels to say "thank you" three months later. I'd feel far worse just ignoring them.
So, what's been going on? Quite a lot. It's been a good year so far, aside from the whole screwed-up-arm thing. There are now two more books in the world with covers by me: The Lost Diadem and Trouble in the Mage Guild, the first two books in the children's fantasy series A Rogue's Tale. You can see the cover art and synopses here.
I'm working on the third one at the moment.
The RPG I worked on, Tunse'al
, is out now as well. I got my copy of it the other day and it looks really cool, so if you're into role-playing, you should take a look.
And I've been working on art for a sci-fi board game: Burning Suns
from Sun Tzu Games. The Kickstarter
for that just launched, and it looks pretty damn awesome, so make sure to check it out.
There's a ton of new stuff waiting to be posted, but I'm going to space it out a little. Here's a preview of what's coming up!
I haven't forgotten about the colour challenge, either! It's just been delayed a little. But *dreamarian
did make something for it, which about made my day when I saw it.
I'll post my own efforts soon! I also have a tutorial or two ready to go, and some more resources, and more stuff. I've been busy, I've just also been really quiet. But hopefully, now, you can all understand why. Thanks for bearing with me and thanks for being awesome!
