…and so we meet Eliana, tactical mage of Malsa.

So I am for once a bit ahead of the sisyphean stone, and we actually have a buffer of one again! Hopefully that will grow, and we can get further and further ahead. It actually goes a bit further than that, fortunately – I actually sat down and roughly outlined/storyboarded the next 10 pages over the weekend. This is something I used to do, but had fallen to the wayside in recent times, and I think was causing a dip in actual quality. In the long run, I would like to storyboard whole chapters before I start drawing them, as I think sometimes the cut from the outline to the story board leaves me in awkward spots with information I didn’t want to cut getting cut, etc.

Ultimately I’m just going to try a little harder, as I was fairly unhappy with the last page. Even if you are all wonderful patient people, ultimately I think I can do a little better – I already ask a lot of you all with the cast size and plot structure being what it is that we don’t need a confusing presentation added into the mix πŸ™‚ I’ve just had a bit too much schedule disruption, encroaching other hobbies, and the endless toll of the day job all kind of circling for my time like vultures, so it was time to beat them back and bit and carve out more time for this, and I’ll try to keep that up moving forward at least until the buffer is solidly rebuilt.
