New Page is up. Actually listed it as page sixteen instead of seventeen because I got them mixed up. And I had a beer, so my cognitive skills are slightly impaired at the moment. Although I remain unconvinced that I do not draw better when inebriated… Anyway…
Anyway, posted this early. Monday and Tuesday of this week were late ones, working noon to eight. Used to work this shift on a regular basis when I was at the cheese plant, about the same issue: how busy can I keep myself until I feel like I’m basically twiddling my thumbs waiting to go to work? Nothing really opens up until 7-9 am, so that leaves a say a maximum of three hours to run errands and do stuff–assuming you take 45-60 minutes to get ready for work and get there. So the shifts that start at noon or in the early afternoon always left me feeling like “okay, how much should I try and reasonably expect to accomplish before work?”
So yeah. I’ll be back to the usual 6:45 tomorrow, so I’m kind of wondering how coherent I will be come my usual wake up time. So page is up tonight. Getting ready to slowly ramp up a few things, get a few things done. I’m hoping to get a few thing back on pace this weekend.
After some careful consideration, I think I will finish issue two then take a few days to get back on pace with Order of the Dragon. I thought about doing the epilogue for issue two–the last three pages where the final main character is introduced–after a week off, but it makes more sense to get these pages done first. I looked at them and just was like “okay, one’s a splash page and the other two are pretty straight forward, makes more sense to just get it done.” So yeah, planning on Wednesday and Friday for pages.
Was a long week at work. Literally and figuratively. Each paycheck is supposed to be for two weeks/eighty hours and I was just over ninety for this cycle. Very distracting.
But the UniColor pencil leads I ordered finally arrived. I like using mechanical pencils when I draw because it is a bit more precise. Also like using a non-photo blue or red to draw pages because I feel like it gives me a better sense of depth. However the Pentel options I have found locally tend to break easily and are a pain in the ass. So I ordered some Unicolor leads recently. Well, recently being end of December, but apparently these shipped from Japan. Anyway, liking those so far.
