I'm sooo excited!! Technically in 17 minutes it'll be October 1st, which means I can start working on Inktober #1! So thrilled to get to share that with you guys. Hopefully we'll see a lot of improvement throughout the month. I'm making sure I know all the guidelines right now by reading the InkTober Initiative by Jake Parker, founder of Inktober. Or should I write it like he does? Inktober or InkTober? I think I like the latter better. Let's go with that.
If you're interested in doing InkTober this October, I'll include the guidelines (they're totes rules) and prompts here! I probably should have thought of posting that for you guys sooner, but...agh! >_< Busyness!
So, here are the rules!
"1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).
2) Post it online
3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2016
Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week. What ever you decide, just be consistent with it. INKtober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more you’re consistent the better."
That was copied straight from the official page. Now we'll put in the 2016 prompt list so you guys get some hints as to what I'll be doing!
I'm so hyped to get started! Now it's only 7 minutes until tomorrow! Heehee, I think I'm being to eager here...but that's good I think. Enthusiasm is important!
And with that I think I shall leave you. I'm listening to the new Adam Young Score, Voyager1 right now. Totally digging that he went back and revamped his old Port Blue and Insect Airport tunes! They were pretty great back then, but now they're like...better. If that was possible.
Yep, surprise! I launched the new mini comic series Wizard's Game Night this evening! I was a little behind schedule so I didn't publish it until around 9:00 tonight. I'm happy to announce that it'll be a weekly release, and a new one will roll out (some time) every Thursday. I'd love to hear input on games to have them play, too. I'm all about interaction! I already have some ideas lined out, but since it'll be a weekly thing that pool will run dry pretty fast I feel like. Thankfully there are plenty of board, card, and spoken games they can play. Ooh, just got me an idea for another! (Scribble scribble...Haha, just kidding, the ideas are stored on my flash drive, not a piece of paper! Which, now that I think about it, I probably should have a copy of my plots on paper in case of a power out or something...you can never be too careful.)
Anyway, I'm getting super hyped for Inktober! I still have to get through tomorrow before I can start though. At least tomorrow I can listen to the early upload of the new Adam Young Score on Youtube. If you don't listen to those, I would highly recommend you start! Fantastic instrumentals.
I'll probably work a bit on inking Aces tonight or something, along with getting another comic review up. Surprisingly those take a while to write...though it might just be that I write really long reviews.
In other news, the weather took a turn for autumn today. It was raining the whole day, and the temperature dropped too. It was weird to need a sweater for around the house, but not that surprising. It's getting on in the year, and if you think about it we're only three months away from Christmas. Well, actually, if we're going three months to the day, we'd be four past Christmas, but...you know.
Catch you around!
I somehow lost track of time, haha! Anyway, today I finished the banner for Tumble. I should probably get to work on prepping the comic for launch so I can use the banner though, huh?
Anyway, I'm pleased to announce that I'll be partaking in Inktober this year. Not familiar with what that is? Here, let me explain! I love to share my knowledge like an idiot.
So, Inktober was started as kind of a way for artists to improve by making themselves drawing (and inking) a picture every day for a month. Inktober was started in October, but you don't have to do it in that particular month. You can also just pick a month to challenge yourself. I wanted to do it in October myself, so I've been waiting a month or so already. Only a couple days until October first now! Anyways, I intend on starting a gallery in the Artwork category for my Inktober work. After a while I'll probably move all of it into the proper galleries, but that would be a month or two after it I'm sure.
If anyone has any suggestions or requests (Like a particular character) for me to draw during Inktober, I'd be happy to hear (And more than likely draw) them!
I'd best go get some work done now. Until next time!
So! I haven't heard anything back from About Time Comics yet. Not sure if that's good or bad. For now I won't focus as much on building and editing the website--I'll try and work on the future content more. Speaking of which, I'm almost done with a banner for Tumble! I also have one for Aces inked and ready for color, but I want to finish Tumble's first. I liked how it turned out more than the Aces one, possibly because it looks more epic...the Aces one is kinda like, "LOOK AT THAT!"...which you'll understand more once I put it up.
Just to mention some things about my personal life real quick...it's like the night of the spiders over here! I got back from running some errands with the fam and saw two (small for what they were) tarantulas in the garage, a smaller kind of spider that I didn't recognize--though it was still fairly well sized--then I came inside, where I grabbed a Honey Bun and some almond milk to have while I colored the banner. Guess what was waiting on the basement stairs? A medium sized wolf spider. Guess what was waiting in the doorway of the computer room where I was gonna be coloring the banner? A large sized wolf spider. I have no idea why they were just sitting everywhere, but it was giving me the willies. I'm not usually that bothered by spiders--only if they're large. Go figure all of the ones I encounter tonight are the kind that freak me out.
Anyway, I'd best finish up the coloring for the evening. It's 10:18 right now. Means I should probably go do some stuff (like read and brush my teeth, haha), then go to bed. I haven't slept well lately. Makes me grumpy. Honey Buns and almond milk make me happy though. Large spiders make me terrified. All in all, I think I came out behind tonight.
Wishing you the best from my nest,
...oh, but what could the dilemma be, you might ask? Well, the name Godsent Comics. That's what the dilemma is.
Sure, it might just be nothing, but...I am concerned I might get the (negative) attention of the other people using the name Godsend for their comics. I'm not calling my comics Godsent or anything. That's just my studio name or something, I guess. I would like it to be a company name someday, but there are a couple reasons I might consider a different name...though I would hate that, especially because I already started on this site, which is probably stuck with the name I gave it: GodsentComics.Weebly.com.
Godsend illustration (About Time Comics)
I haven't read either of them or anything, but I did happen to learn about two comics called Godsend. One is a web comic by Jesse Bausch and Meg Gandy, and the other is from About Time Comics, which apparently also has a steampunk/western comic. I didn't realize I was such a little copy-cat! (Haha, spoiler alert! Tumble is going to be a steampunk/western!) The genre isn't really bothersome to me though--I'm positively certain we aren't the first people to think of that, and I'm willing to bet our stories will be quite different. What bothers me is the thought of changing the studio name I was so set on!
I went ahead and contacted About Time Comics about it, and I'm hoping and praying they say it's alright. I suppose all I can do is wait now.
If I am requested to change the name, I'll probably need some help choosing a new one. Too bad I don't have anyone here to assist me. Oh well. If that happens, perhaps I'll try and collect some names and have a poll. What really frightens me about it is I might have to either make a new website, or try and change the name of this one! Eesh. I do not want that.
In other news, I've started work on coloring the banners. It might be a few days, and I don't promise anything fancy, but I will be working on them.
That's all for now,
It's day 2 of the website being up. I've gotten two banners for the Comics area inked, and I hope to start coloring them tomorrow.
Also tomorrow I intend to work more on getting Tumble ready to post, which will be pretty fantastic. I'll have to try and work out a schedule for uploading the comics, too. That can wait until I have a buffer set up though.
Now, I just wanted to make a quick post up here and mention this, mostly. For the first week or two, I'll probably make a blog post every day. After that I'll only make posts about my doll/action figure endeavors. I might also make a separate little blog on here for that though, which I think would probably be a good idea. Is that a good idea? Sure...I'll just say it's a good idea. I think that blog will get updated more than this one once it's live. I have quite a bit to say about that stuff!
So, yeah. I said what I wanted to say. Rambled about what I needed to. Have a nice day, and enjoy what I have up on here!
Hey everyone! So, this is the launch of the Godsent Comics Website. That's pretty exciting. I've been working really hard to get things set up here, too. Considering it's still day 1 and I've gotten the Fan Art and the Personal Characters and Artwork galleries up with some content, the blog somewhat framed out (with a post in the works, to boot!) and comic announcements up, I'd say I'm ahead of where I thought I'd be. Heck, I didn't think I'd be anywhere with this when I started my day. Hannah Jo from SuperCosplayCafe.com actually helped me start up this site. She thought it would be fun for me, and it certainly will be! This just kind of happened this afternoon, amusingly. I'm ecstatic though.
Alright, let's get some info down here!
So, it might be a long while before there's any comic pages uploaded. I'm getting the covers and extra artwork done currently, and that takes a little time. Okay, a lot of time. Tumble and Aces are my primary focus right now, so when there is an update there it will most likely be one of those two.
I'm also going to be doing some website art, which I feel almost takes a priority. It'll just bother me a ton if I'm putting things up on an unfinished site. But hey, as long as I have quality content on here, I guess that won't matter so much.
I need to work on getting the action figure/doll spot up, but that's a job for another day. Artwork is my main focus, as previously mentioned.
So, like I mentioned on the About page, I really need a colorist to help me out. Even if you could just do a page or two, that would be great. And I'd love to see some comic ideas--even little short stories, like ones that could be just a couple pages long. In fact, I might even have a contest if we get bigger on here. ;) (wink wink wink)
I think that covers it for now...WAIT, no, it doesn't!
I love to write with words too, you know! That means I might share some of my little stories and books on here. Maybe. I don't know. I'm insecure about them, haha. I can never decide if they're good or not.
My, my, at the rate this is going this site will have something for everyone! Ah, anyway, I need to be drawing right now. Best wishes, and God be with you.
This is just a little blog for me to update you guys about content, if something big happens, or just to jabber a bit. More or less just the Blog of Randomness! Enjoy!
