I apologize for not being active Journal-wise. A lot's happened in the past two weeks; some very positive like when my studio senpai replied to me when I said hi, while others were pretty down like struggling to accept that my ex-GF and I aren't together and not communicating anymore. I usually end up building up all the emotions inside, that I end up eating myself emotionally with all the deep thoughts. This is probably what happens when I refuse to write in a journary which I found out back then was pretty useful when I needed to vent out something (sharing it over on the internet isn't always the best option anyway). Anybutts, let's move on to more important shizz.
The "Cybie and Tykie" Desiderata (MMORPG Arc) is practically in its climax already. With the latest update, we're down to our last 8 pages already! To think that I thought doing an arc this long was near impossible, considering that my schedule would be tipped from work-related shenanigans, but your support and never-dying desire to read the comics and know more about the characters really helped push the success of the arc, and I'd like to extend my personal thanks to everyone who's read the webcomics ever since 2013. The comic wouldn't be this successful without you guys. *Huggles like crazy*
Two weeks ago, I launched my Patreon page (www.patreon.com/CyberPikachu
). Its main goal was to help support the webcomics to those who'd want to donate a happy buck or two for Cybie, Tykie, and the gang. I know it's difficult doing artworks at my current status, considering I need to be somewhat financially stable to help out in the household, but I still want to continue the comics and write a lot more for you guys to enjoy, and it was through this that I thought was going to help in keeping the comics up and running. If you guys feel generous or are curious, drop by the webpage and see what sweet perks you can get by pledging! Don't forget to spread the word to your friends as well regarding the comic. Every bit of help counts.
I've been considering re-opening commishies (probably after the latest arc ends). There have been a handful of peeps wanting some arts from yours truly (whether they be cute babyfurs or a scene with their favorite Cybie and Tykie cast). It's been a while since I've done so, and considering all the workload already from juggling studio stuff and comic updates, it'll take one heck of time management to be able to do all of these. Plus, my commishies price list may need re-tweaking. If ever I re-open, I'll try to make the prices as fair and affordable for you awesome peeps.
As mentioned some weeks back, I've been doing Flash animation training in a studio, and will become a regular (legit) work in two weeks time, assuming everything sails perfectly. I've learned a lot of tips and techniques from the instructors there, as well from my co-trainees. It's awesome to have my old school mates there with me, but it's even better to meet new friends who you know are interested in the same stuff as you do. Everyday I go train with them is just loads of fun because of the jokes we'd usually throw at each other whenever we're there. One of which was how they'd tease me whenever I mention my studio senpai (or if she passes by). I'm still quite nervous when I become regular because the show we'll be handling will be difficult to animate, but nonetheless I'm quite up for the challenge!
