Twisted Mirrors: RiftSorry for being so absent for a while. I managed to keep up with DA for over a year and then let it go in a month.
Apologies, but I haven't been idle. This wasn't down time. I've been working on the comics and getting stuff ready for print as well as a couple of requests (still coming, I promise!) But all this has lead to something actually happening.
TWISTED MIRRORS RESUMES THIS MONDAY!
The sequel comic, Twisted Mirrors: Rift, will update every weekday next week then resume normal weekly updates the following Monday.
There's probably not going to be a lot about the beginning that will be all that striking - if I had the patience I would wait and post the prologue and the entire first chapter all together because I feel like it that's the setup stuff - ...but let's be real, I don't have the patience.
Thus I hope you'll bear with me and enjoy some of the first few pages.
I hope to see
Twisted Mirrors - End and Beginning(Fair warning, most of this will be what's posted on the actual comic page, so if you've already seen that, then this will be pretty moot.)
My webcomic Twisted Mirrors has finally come to an end. http://www.twistedmirrorscomic.com if you'd like to see the final product. There are hits and there are misses, but it's done!
...but that doesn't mean that this is the end!
There's going to be a sequel. It will be set an indeterminate amount of time into the future and feature an entirely different cast of characters. I don't intend to even mention the characters from the first comic in it, so if you're looking for direct connections, you may be disappointed. (The point of open-ended endings is to allow you the readers to decide what happens, if I start dictating things to you then that's rendered moot.)
I learned a lot from the mistakes I made with the first comic and I hope to correct at least some of them. As far as the story goes, it's going to be a much more traditional story structur
State of StuffHonestly, I don't have much to report in this journal, I just wanted to talk about fun stuff rather than not-so-fun stuff, so here we go! I'll make it work.
So I think I've finally decided on a subtitle for the Twisted Mirrors sequel. It's probably going to be "Twisted Mirrors: Rift".
I didn't want to use more than one word because I worried the title might get too long and unwieldy otherwise. "Rift" probably isn't the precisely accurate title for what I was thinking of, but it's a lot punchier/catchier than the other words I considered. (And it probably goes without saying, but the rift in question is not a fissure or portal, it refers to character relationships, because I am not terribly interesting. )
I'm trying some things for a logo currently, as I was never really satisfied with either of Twisted Mirrors' logos. I really like the one I made for Conscripted, but that method wouldn't really work for this project. Either way, I'm trying some things and looking at examples/su
Pokemon Go, Books, Covers, Other stuff...Been playing Pokemon Go...like everyone else on the planet, haha! It's a nostalgia trip for sure since I started on Pokemon Red back in the 90's. I really have to hand it to this little app though, the things it's accomplishing are kind of impressive. I mean people (myself included!) are going out more, getting exercise, meeting people, and visiting places they never even knew were so close by! I know the news likes to jump on the worst stories (I get it, they're a business, they have to get readers, no shade from me) but from my personal, anecdotal evidence, the positives far outweigh these relatively few incidents. Museums are reporting more visitors. Small business are seeing more customers. And people are getting out and interacting!
This past weekend, my sister and I went out to a small lake near where she works because she'd seen that there were a lot of stops there. It had a lovely walking trail around the water lined with shops and restaurants and things for the kids like a mer
Twisted Mirrors 2 - What's in a Name?So, my webcomic, Twisted Mirrors, is winding down soon. Not like, tomorrow or anything, but we've got about a chapter and a half remaining. Now, I do have a sequel in planning stages, but I've got an important question to ask about it.
...what the heck do I call it?
I'm keeping the "Twisted Mirrors" part of the title - believe it or not, it still totally fits - but I keep going back and forth between just calling it "Twisted Mirrors 2" or "Twisted Mirrors: subtitle-to-be-named".
I don't really think there's anything wrong with numbered sequels like that, but I'm hesitant to do it in this instance just because a numbered sequel sounds a lot more like a direct sequel, and since this will be so far removed from anything in the original story (the world will be the same - the characters, time period, and story will not) it feels a little misleading to go that route.
Dear 2015...Good riddance.
Get lost and never come back.
What a long, worthless, and miserable year you've been. I started out the year depressed and I ended it up feeling so terrible that a day I only break down crying once is charitably considered "good".
You've been so awful and ruined so much that I don't know if it could even be fixed in 2016, so hey, thanks for destroying next year too.
Regardless, I look forwarding to being rid of you forever. Once you're gone, I'm going to do my level best to never think of you again. You did nothing for me. There was never a moment in the entirety of your year that I was happy. You even tried to take the one thing that I still loved from me, but you didn't succeed and now you'll be gone.
I won't miss you. Once midnight hits I won't even think of you.
Not For Everyone, I Guess...Well...I was going to write a journal about why it is that I've been so absent lately, but then I couldn't find a way to disable comments in journals and I decided against it. I don't need the internet to tell me I'm an idiot, I can do that well enough on my own.
Sum up: Life is tough, but not in any interesting, meaningful or special kind of way. I'm just being kind of a whiner and I need to get over it...also I have a lot less free time now and that's making things difficult. That's all.
Comics are still going strong though! No breaks in sight despite everything. It's a small victory, but it pleases me. Can't get much accomplished aside from them at the moment, since what little free time I have is devoted strictly to comicking. So that's why you aren't seeing much other work from me at the moment. I just have no time to give to it.
I have another minor victory, though. I've been keeping up with DA somehow. With just two months to go I only have three notifications. I might mak
King's Quest 2015 Review (too much rambling! XD)So those who know me know I LOVE adventure games. If you were to ask me about my favorites, I’d list of a variety of LucasArts games: Monkey Island, Sam and Max, Grim Fandango, ect. You’ve even seen me do fanart of some of these.
…but LucasArts was something I came to later in life, I actually grew up on Sierra’s adventure games. Once I discovered LucasArts, I jumped ship there and never really looked back. LucasArts didn’t have the same frustrating issues as Sierra games such as punishing the player for exploring and putting the game into unwinnable states fairly easily. I liked adventure games because they were some of the earliest games to feature story and characters instead of just gameplay, but the Sierra games for the most part made it a lot harder to enjoy. Still, my childhood was all Space Quest and Conquest of Camelot and even some of the King’s Quest games (1, 2, and 7 if you can believe it. ) so despite the issues the games had, I al
Twisted Mirrors Print Editions Fully Available!Print editions of all three Volumes of Twisted Mirrors are now available through lulu.com!
As threatened, I did go through and redo the first five chapters for the print edition of volume 1 and once that was done I went ahead and uploaded these new versions of the pages to the website. If you read Twisted Mirrors through from the beginning now, it will be with the updated pages not the original ones. That said, the changes that were made to the early chapters honestly aren't that drastic. Though there are some significant differences in the text, it wa
Please Listen.I just got an email from a concerned parent. Her daughter has an account on DA, and apparently she copies and traces my drawings. I looked on her profile and confirmed that, yes, she did trace and gave minimal (sometimes no) credit. The reason her mother messaged me was because a few people were apparently sending her harsh messages asking her to give credit. She even got a few death threats.
Listen...I'm going to say this all again because I guess it needs reiterating: When it comes to my art, I do not mind young artists copying or tracing my drawings in hopes of developing their skills, or because they are still learning the way of things. If you see someone posting a traced or heavily referenced drawing that does not mention the original picture, please DO NOT immediately jump to aggression. If something like this (art theft/style theft) really gets on your nerves, then I understand why you might be angry upon seeing it, but you must find the maturity to take a breath, and

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
