Minor Artblock And Some Other News

Art Block
I had a bit of a minor artblock for the last couple of days and tried to fight it off by sketching my muse Everthiana. I also drew Yejide from Aenigma Essentia because I can. There's something therapeutic about drawing my AE characters... anyway, I'm just glad I was able to draw still despite feeling bleh.

I like how they came out in this sketch done entirely on Drawpile. Yes, I'm still practicing on this program. So far it seems it has all the vital tools a digital artist needs, and that's good enough for me. The only problem I have so far is the eraser tool, it just feels strange to me. There's nothing wrong with the tool, it just got a different feel to it and will take a while for me to get used to it...

I'm going to color these sketches and see how it turns out. I have a lot of work to do in terms of coloring because I have troubles with arbitrary things such as color. I also need to improve my shading as I tend to do it rather lightly or in a weak manner; I'm aware my stuff can seem rather bland or flat. I'm hoping to find a coloring and shading style that better suits with my own drawing style as well as get rid of my bad habits... >.<;

Webcomic Site Updates
I've recently made some minor changes to the webcomic sites. I decided to fuse the Gallery and Extras section as one. AEssentia and Omega will have the Extras section as most of the materials will be bonus material. R&C on the other hand gets the gallery as most of the stuff I post there are just illustrations. There's no bonus material for that series because of the nature of it; what you see is what you get and most of the things you see will be within the comic. Also, I'd like to mention that any news regarding my webcomic series will be posted here, so it will not interrupt with the flow of the comics. I've added this blog's link to each of the webcomic's menu.

Rika & Chivek Status
So some of you may have noticed I haven't updated the series since Valentine's Day. The thing is, I haven't been feeling very motivated to do the series since I have other projects to manage. I also have to be in a particular mood to do this series... either silly, goofy, not-serious, etc. By default I'm a serious kind of person, and so I feel much more comfortable working on AEssentia or Omega. The good news is that I am currently working on the next episode, hopefully it'll be out by this Friday night. Bad news is that the series will most likely experience frequent and long hiatuses... with or without notice.
