I.O.U.

Tue Jul 30, 2013, 10:13 PM
...a proper journal entry.  :P

Had to go to Central Florida on business again.  Internet access is spotty and time is scant, but at least I've been having some fun on the side.  ^^

Posted up an "anniversary" SDC comic, so enjoy!  ^.^

[the Pilot was first posted on 7/29/2012, although the original concept sketches for CC and DD were done on 7/23/2012, with various stories scripted up ahead of time on 7/26/2012 or so.  I wrote enough stories to cover 70 comic arcs, plus a few additional ones added since then.  :)

Happy anniversary! :D I can't believe it's already been a year!

I love seeing their sketchy beginnings  compared to how they turned out. ^_^ 

Anyhow - again - congratulations, and here's to many more! :)

yay!  Thank you, O-Chibi-kun!  :D

I really should post up all my sketches at some point, just to show how a lot of these comics look like (on my Galaxy Notes) before I give them the vector treatment.  Some cases the outcome is very close to the sketches, and sometimes I make radical changes to the poses or expressions or content.  :)

Anyway, thank you for all your support!  Hopefully we'll be able to see these girls through a few more years, before we end it with an awesome grand finale. :D

[and I may yet introduce one more character too]  ^^

Yay! I'll look forward to it!

As far as vectoring goes - are you still using Inkscape as your number one tool? I'm still on the lookout for a decent Android option.

hehe, guilty as charged.  :3

Sketching and painting wise, my Galaxy Note still reigns supreme.  But vector-wise.. .guilty as charged.  :D

Congrats on the one year mark. And might I say that your style has improved quite a lot since I started watching you. ^_^

haha, thank you, but you sure?

Artistically-speaking, SDC is a huge step down in terms of art quality, compared to a lot of my older works:

c-quel.deviantart.com/art/OP-G…
c-quel.deviantart.com/art/Wind…
c-quel.deviantart.com/art/Frie…

On the other hand, SDC has probably been the most resilient thing I've ever worked on.  I guess it's true that 'slow and steady wins the race'.  ^__^

It's true that from an artistic point it is a bit, well, worse. But the fact that you managed to keep doing it for a year? Now that's impressive. I could never do something like that. Let alone keep a consistant character design. ^_^

I know, it's just I wasn't able to do it in the past, or in the present really. I've tried to keep up consistencies, but it's too hard for my hand or brain to do.

Still, it an amazing feat, doing this for a year. So congrats again to that. :D

really nice that your characters have been around so long now. :)

heheh, thank you!  I'm surprised myself, I typically have a bad track record with character longevity.  For many of my older works, you'll see tons of original characters that I tried to propel to fame, but failed and eventually abandoned.  >v>

heh, i have something similar. interestingly, it's my pony ophelia who has had the longest life span with a 26 chapter works so far. so it's cool to see your ponies being popular and living well. :)

So, how is Florida?  Never been there myself. ^^

haha, well where I'm at, it's typical urban sprawl central... if you don't drive, you die, everything is too far away.  XD
Definitely not my kind of place, but at least I'm staying in this modern resort area where they at least have sidewalks and plenty of accessible commerce.  :P

Weather is hot but not awful, and there are sunshowers constantly.  No gators where I'm at, but there are some interesting trees, bugs and lots of geckos on the walls and sidewalks.  :)

Happy Anniversary! I can't believe it's been a whole year already! I remember reading SDC when it first came out.

Oh, and how's the weather down there? I'm going to Florida next week to visit family, so I just hope it isn't TOO humid or raining constantly... ;)

Oh hi!  ^.^

Yep, time flew indeed!
[although in my case, all that house nonsense helped the year drain away like a punctured bath tub]  XD

Ah, the weather here is typical Florida summer fare... hot and muggy, with random rain showers.  Today was kinda pleasant, though. ^^
I still miss Chicago, I can't wait to go back.  :3

Anyway, enjoy your time when you get here!  I'll still be here till the 9th, so for a very brief time we'll be neighbours.  :P

Haha yeah xD

Okay, great! Doesn't seem too terrible. Well, better than it is here in Wisconsin right now. :P

Thanks! I can't wait. We're going to go to Universal Studios after visiting with my grandma for a few days.
Cool, maybe we' run into each other or something! lol xD
