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!

The sun finally came out for like 15 minutes today so I finally got a photo of the Heckbird 🦜

I just tried to update my avatar because they're larger in the new version, but it sharpened it to all hell

this is a step up from when I tried to do this months ago and it wouldn't even save my new image

like are they AWARE of how bad it looks on a desktop monitor?? everything is huge???

I was trying to give dA's new layout a chance and have a real open mind about it but

after using it (infrequently) for a few months... I kinda just... it sort of just hit me that I really don't understand a lot of their design choices

like... why

why did they choose to make it weird

Also the little bluetooth controller i've been using for my keybinds isn't syncing lol, so i basically have no keybindings right now and that's not helping

Uuuuurrrghhhh i really don't feel like sketching pages but i gotta

Can i just snap my fingers and this page already be laid out... and also the next 15 pages, please

I’ve been down w the flu but still getting pages done and i updated my comic today and this is a quieter scene but it’s one I’ve been excited to get to bc we finally learn more about Harlow and writing her makes me happy

(Here’s the link if you wanna read the rest of the comic so far but if not that’s ok too I just like my comic a lot it’s fun for me to make

I got all my chores done (except for cleaning the lotl tank) and had time to do a bunch of extra stuff i'm actually super impressed with myself

the only reason i haven't finished cleaning the tank is the zebra snail is on the sponge filter and won't come off, so i'm just WAITING for it to go somewhere else lol

I've been really kind to myself on panels his chapter, I opened the sketch for the next page and it was only two large panels 😌

‪Hey you know what sucks to draw? a classroom of desks full of students ‬

Hey you know what I'm about to draw a bunch of panels of?

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 💝

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 😑

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 🤘
