School and Apologies

Tue Feb 21, 2017, 2:26 PM
Hey everyone!

I know that my page has been dead quiet for awhile and I apologize for that. (More of me being afraid to show up when I don't have anything substantial to post.)

School has consumed my time. I've been taking an animation class learning the fundamental basics of Maya and 3D animation which has kept me pretty busy. As well as a class focusing on drawing objects and environments in perspective which involves a lot of repetition and busy work.
I haven't had much of any time to work on Lunar Isolation. 

This has happened before and as unfortunate as the delays are, they are necessary. My priority needs to continue to be my schoolwork and ultimately the work that's going to go into my portfolio and hopefully get me a job one day :').

It doesn't help that I really want the last couple pages of Chapter 4 to look GOOD.
That being said, I greatly appreciate everyone's patience with me. I'll try to post school related work if people are interested in my original concepts and that sort of thing.

But have no fear, LIE will continue. LIE will not go gentle into that good night.

Have a great day!

Continue to work on you school stuff cause that is important. I would also love to see class related work. I am glad your continuing the comic, because I love your art style and the story is fantastic.

Good luck with your classes! I know what it's like, my final year in college focused heavily in learning advanced classes in 3D with Maya and while I love the program it ate my life away along with all my senior projects. I'll be looking forward to the next update of LIE though and I'm sure the wait's worth it. ^^

If you're interested in some handy tutorials on animation in Maya I could link you to some. They helped me a ton when I was learning how to use the graph editor and clean up my animations.

As you say, you focusing on your portfolio and school in general is key, so do that!
And I know I'd love to see whatever new concepts you come up with, because I'm still in love with the Seasons (the love square's hilarious), Hell and Back and of course your pirate-y creations! (Seriously, Golgo is the most adorable animal companion I've seen in ages~)
So, yeah! I'd love to see whatever you're working on for school posted here, that'd be amazing!
And take however long you need over LIE, it's looking fantastic~! :la:  

Anyhow, that's just my two cents on the matter.
Stay fabulous!

Two weeks isn't really that long of a time.
I mean, it's not like art is your job right?
You got school, and your life to deal with, art is just a hobby,
and a hobby doesn't really need an everyday schedule.

I would love to see when you do your first animations :3! And your school is important i totally understand that, so don't mog yourself for slowing LIE down ^^! As long as i have your promise that it will continue i'm totally fine with it ^^.

We like hearing from you now and then, even if it isn't a LIE page. There's no trouble in paradise, you hang in there with your work!

LIE is something that we enjoy very much, but it's understandable that there are more urgent things for you to do.

Personality I'd like to see what else you made,
and the waiting has usually been worth it.

Keep up the good work, man.

Marche ou Crève.

Understood, school may suck but it's important.
MrQuartz Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2017  Student General Artist
School is far more important.

PS. Awwww yeah, Maya is the best, been using it for a couple years now, if you want a link to some tools to make animating in Maya easier i can hook ya up.

DigitalSomething Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2017
I shall wait patient as the night sky. I wish you well on your schooling and such.
DangerCloseArt Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
By all means, focus on all of that which will make you an even stronger artist! 

(also cuz I'm sure isn't cheap >_>)

You got this! :D

I don't know about some of your followers, but if I need to wait for something amazing instead of something ok from you then so be it! I'd rather you put out something that had all your effort in it than something half-assed. Since we all know when that starts happening, the art starts failing. So excited for the next page! I'll be waiting!
