Pinned toot

Hi! I'm Emily and I make a comic called Blitz Phoenix, which is about a boy who becomes a guinea pig in his mad-scientist mother's experiments and gets superpowers (which he's really bad at using) and a brain AI, that he never gets along with.

[CW for the comic since the mom is abusive & dogs do get hurt/killed (they're also being experimented on, etc)]

My main masto is @SunScales, but that's kinda private so I wanted a more public account for talking comics!

So now tomorrow i can just do sketches and finish up the thumbnails if i have time, but i could also use it to make sure everything's prepped for the d&d game we're starting monday

(...Unless somebody has a baby then we won't start monday lol)

Oh wow i actually got this whole page done tonight

I wanted to spend today doing thumbnails and sketches, but didn't get all the sketches i wanted since i got a phone call. But decided to get the sketch/ink done for monday's page done so i could just blast through it tomorrow, but uuuh it's totally done now, lol

Which is good, since i'm stupid tired on sundays and everything is hard so it's always bad that i wait to do so much comic work then along with all my sunday chores

I like that my masto feeds are always full of good art πŸ’

I have half the chapter thumbnailed now, though :rainbowdance:

Trying to get started sketching pages but having a hard time figuring out what i'm in the mood to listen to πŸ˜‘

WOW this next chapter is only at 20 pages!!

That's SO low for me omg i'm so excited

I haven't counted pages yet (i'll do that after editing) but chapter 16 looks like it may be short which is a RELIEF

Got chapter 16 written, will do editing and thumbnails later this week 🀘

I bought some of my script with me to work so I could do some thumbnails in my down time

but turns out I brought the script part that I've already done thumbnails for πŸ™ƒ

I ended up playing pokemon go and world of warcraft instead

wow had a free play weekend

i'm very behind, lol

Weellll since my plans for this weekend are canceled now, maybe i'll write chapter 16 instead

Aww this song is really cute, I should draw a thing for it

Brain: "You have a million things due for your comic but you'll have time over the summer.... in 2020"

aaah the comics life

man I always underestimate how much time page thumbnails take, lol πŸ‘Ž

still have time in the night, so gonna keep going

So much better to do comics in batches rather than by-page. Pages get done SO MUCH FASTER, but the drawback is it takes a while to set up, and if you fall off, you basically have to set up all over again.

Gonna do some math and planning tonight to try to figure out a comic batch schedule again, since I've been off it for a while and want to up my work load a bit πŸ‘Œ

Really ready for winter to end, my hands have just been awful the last few days πŸ˜‘

Emily boosted

Read my comic, it's got an elf/ merperson guy and cat people and celestials and I work real hard on it

It's got themes of abandonment/ redemption/ finding your value

Comic posts are all queued to go up but I'm still sitting here stubbornly instead of going to bed

I'm so excited to ink one of these pages I've been looking forward to it ALL CHAPTER and this chapter's been stupidly long
