Reason being that we're going to have some rough weather--just like the rest of that band of purple and pink. Oh, that's ice by the way. Ice. See that?
I didn't want to be late the second week of publishing Aces, so I decided the best thing to do at this point would be to put it up a day early! I had it done and all, so why not?
Hopefully anyone in the ice band with us is holding out alright, and has power and heating. Pretty wild, eh? Kinda like a huge blizzard we had last year around this time, except more ice...
I'm putting this up out of pure anxiety, by the way. I'm updating my site and drawing and stuff to keep my mind off the weather. I get anxious when it comes to weather sometimes. Okay, a lot. A gust of wind or a splash of rain and I dash down to hide in the basement. I think it was something about us having a lot of very bad weather when I was young.
Anyway, I have an art request I need to draw. See you guys later! ♥

So yeah! I'm excited about that! Only downside is that there was a bit of a mishap and I couldn't find the cover I made for issue number one, so I had to use the cover I had made for my personal ANTHOLOGY number one! Whoops! That means you get a cover from when I wasn't as good of an artist, and it also has a poor colored pencil coloring job haha! The good news is that if I find the other cover I can just replace it. The main...*snicker* issue I'm dealing with is that the cover says "#1: Reagan's Aces" when that was going to be the collected edition's name. The actual first issue was to be called "The Beginning", because, well, that's what it is. You guys will know all this now though, so that's good. c:
I'm fairly happy with the coloring, except that on the main computer I use for the site, the coloring of Rowan's skin is off! It gives him a very orange-y tone, which isn't exactly what I was going for...I wanted more of a tanned look, not OH LOOK IT'S MR. TANGERINE! Oh well. I'll try and correct that in future pages.
Please keep in mind that future pages will not be rendered (have as of detailed coloring) as the first page. That page took me about two weeks to finish, so...yeah, that's not really doable for all 22 pages. Now, I drew my coloring out and didn't just sit down for a few hours at a time to work, otherwise it probably would have only taken a couple days of working. My life does not give me time to do that usually, heh.
Oh, hey, you guys can see the Aces banner I finished like, two months ago now! What do you think? I think the coloring is kind of outdated now. I have a different technique at this point! I probably won't change it for a long while though, as if I change the banner coloring every time I change coloring styles, that thing will be changing every week! As an artist, my vision--and style--is constantly changing, and you may notice that throughout the different pages of Aces. I hope it doesn't bother anyone too bad, and I hope you can look past the writing and art errors in the comic as well. Enjoy it, please! **desperate**
If anyone has any questions, feel free to send them through the contact tab or email at email@example.com ! I always love hearing from you guys!
That's all for now. To steal a page from the EntrePUNeur's book, stay classy!

I hope you all had a wonderful couple of holidays there, and I also hope you don't mind my missing even more updates for the tutorials. December just went out of control for me, and I just couldn't handle updating the site in the middle of the craziness. I'll try and at least get one tutorial up this Saturday, you know, when I'm posting Aces? I'm very excited about that, by the way! I think I've pretty much got the page ready, just some minor stuff that needs done...but now I need to get the cover 100% completed. I forgot about that, I'll be honest. I hope I can get everything ready in time still...haha. It's crunch time, so I'll be trying my best at least!
I was unfortunately sick immediately after Christmas, and I am only just now (mostly) better. Still coughing a bit and I sound quite congested, but I'm feeling well. That really hindered my progress I was supposed to get after Christmas. I should get off of here and get back to work, actually.
See you all later, and look forward to more constant updates from here on out!
