Devious Journal Entry

Heeeeyo guys!
How are you all doing? It's been a loooong time :ohnoes:
Yes, for those who thought I was dead, I'm still alive and kicking! :la:
But I believe I owe you huge apologies for my sudden disappearance. Yes, I spent a long time away from here, but a lot of things happened in the meantime.

I believe you have the right to know what I've been up to, apart from my personal life (which really got in the way!).

Firstly, lets talk about "Up and Ahead"!
Yes, the first 8 pages are all finished and ready to be published, all done with the best of my skills. But I have encountered a problem in the way. I found out the page's resolution was too low to make a decent printing (yes, I wanted to make this a physical comic book), and that left me with only had two options: to take it as it is and just make the pages physically smaller, or do everything all over again. I even tried starting it again, but it didn't work - my computer is very old, and the file sizes I had to work with would make photoshop crash all the time, and it would get horrendously slow, making it impossible to draw or paint. So yeah, I truly had to meditate about what I could do.

While I meditated, I actually stated a new thingie. Do any of you remember "Blue Blood"? that old animation project I had, about a wolf and a fox and all? Well, yeah, I actually started it. I'm working on a storyboard for it, in fact. A very poor-looking storyboard, but I'm getting excited with the results! =D I have 3:30 minutes of it done, 1:46 to go! As soon as I finish it, I'll share it on youtube so whoever's interested and curious about their story can finally know what all of that was about! =D
And I can finally give you some art as well :/ I'm sorry it took me so long.
It'll probably be ready next week so.. yeah! :dummy:

Anyways, the time I took to meditate about Up and Ahead finally paid off, and a few days ago I came up with the perfect plan to solve my problem. So back to work now! :w00t: (tho I'm not home now, so… this might take a week to happen :P darn)
But anyways, I have to thank you a thousand times for being so patient with me, all of you, even those who rioted on my page (yes, lLelo, I'm talking about you and your "army" :giggle:)
You all mean the world to me, and you always keep me motivated, no matter what I'm going through :thanks:
thank you for putting up with so much incoherence and clumsiness from my part.

Now, it's time to go reply some comments and notes! I have a loooooooooot of work ahead of me xD
I'll be super happy if you're patient regarding my reply.. it might take a while :(
