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!

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

Sweet I already had most of this week's page done LAST week, so I finished it up in no time today.

So tomorrow I'll have time to just get ahead on pages 🙌

I got the script broken down into panels last night, but not so much into pages since I've discovered more chunks that weren't finished being written out. Mostly a fight scene. But it's going well, at least!

Got 8/14 pages broken down into panels so far. There was a spot or two where I'd written "write this dialogue later" (thanks past me) and I tried to take care of it, but I'm just too tired tonight to do it. So some other time. I estimated how many pages I wanted to use for those lines, though, so hopefully they won't be outrageous later.

Also, Charlie's lines are the best, I love him

this also gives me an excuse to use these nice pens I bought the other day ✨

lol this is going to take a long time to do on paper. but I'm making a ton of notes, so I think it's a good thing? since it's easier to make notes for what the art needs to do this way, and mark what thumbnail a scene needs to use

14 single sided*, I decided not to duplex so I'd have extra space to write edit notes, I've never really edited a script this way before so wanted to give myself that extra room

So now I'm just gonna curl up on the couch with some pens and divide up pages and edit stuff as needed

Ok it's 14 pages, lol

The black ink is dried out but luckily the blue ink is NOT so I've got it printing now

reeeaaally hoping that's just a random number it came up with because it didn't want to calculate the actual page count... gonna compare in another program.

I want to edit this script but also am tired of staring at screens. I wonder if my printer works or if I'll need to get new ink

I should say that I'm a BIG FAN of the pencil, though, haha.

Procreate is really cool and all but man do I hate inking with it

I keep trying various ink brushes (default and some I bought) and always just go back to the pencil tool to do inks with

Omg I was going to try to get some extra page work done with my last hour of the night but then I couldn't remember the password to my damn website

And since it's a custom built thing I can't just click a button to reset my password, lol

It's fixed now but damn it 😓

mute the music if you're not into screaming dudes who hate their dads, lol

Ok, starting to stream! Going to be inking Blitz Phoenix over here:
