I've been so exhausted this week, I'm sorry updates have taken such a hit! I'm going to get a new blood test next week, I think my "low blood iron, but not quite anemic" has turned into "totally anemic whoops". And because I'm tired I'm more inclined to have a vasovagal response just by getting up too fast (usually my trigger is, weirdly enough, mixing sugars) so i keep having to lie on my bed because I'm going to faint, lol.
ANYWAY, it blows, i just need more iron and more sleep, it's not like dangerous medical stuff or anything, just stuff I'm already aware of and deal with on the daily that have just decided to all flare up at once :I
I was recently informed that a bunch of you guys don't know what's going on, so I'm here to explain!
Blindsprings is running a Kickstarter! There's 12 days to go! We've blown past all the main funding goals, so if you haven't picked up a book yet, now is a great time to do so!
What have you been posting Kadi???
The past 6 pages have been from my comic contribution to Valor! It's 15 pages long!
Why are you posting this? Where's Blindsprings???
I have to go through 250 pages of content and fix some dumb errors, resize and send to Meg to put the book together. It's a lot of work and I changed my mind a lot about fonts and page sizes so it's a bit of a mess. In order to have content while I'm working on fixing stuff, I'm posting Vasilisa!
Why aren't you just doing more annotations?
I've run into a problem where all the stuff I want to do for annotations are spoilers for book 2-- it's hard to do annotations between books since a lot of what I started working on were better placed as actual content in the book. Also, it does take away a bunch of time-- although annotations are easier in the drawing department in THEORY I keep trying to one up myself and keep making really complicated annotations. Oops.
I also have more time to devote to getting ready for book two. I was really afraid that with all the stuff I had to do this break I'd get to the end of annotations and have the book done but then have to take ANOTHER hiatus to work on book two. Because of Vasilisa I don't have to do that!!! I'm already halfway through my thumbnails for the prologue chapter of book 2!
Why April 25th???? That's so far away!!!
It is! But it's when I run out of pages for Vasilisa-- it would be weird to stop midway! This also gives me time to actually get a buffer started so I start book 2 as strong as I started book 1 (I had 12 pages of buffer!!!) which will help in the long run.
I hope this is a satisfactory update, I'm sorry if this was confusing! I thought I had mentioned this before but probably just in the comments and thought that was good enough (no Kadi that is not good enough oops)
I forgot I could do blog posts! I should have made one for the Kickstarter!!!!
WHAT A MORON.
A bunch of people have been wondering what the wips that I had posted before posting the main pages looked like, and this is the best I can do-- I saved over them in my own files but they still exist in the gallery on here, so...enjoy!
