If you’re reading this, then you know the next page of Kokoro No Kinu is up! It took a while (I made a joking tweet about hopefully not taking three weeks this time to make it… self-fulfilling prophesy)

I’m not sure it took three weeks, and I’m scared to look, but it doesn’t matter, the page is here now, which is the important part, so here it is!

Some of you may know, if you follow my twitter (or Facebook, since all my tweets can be found there too, as mini-posts) my classes for the fall semester are all finished, and I did quite well in fact (two As and 2 Bs, with a 3.56 GPA, not bragging, just showing how I did).

This being said, I am going to attempt to ramp up my production of these pages between now and January, seeing as I really have nothing major distracting me besides my own procrastination (which is a big obstacle in my life) and, of course gaming, sleeping and trying not to think about food (since I barely have any).

I am hoping to get at least a page a week finished, if not more, seeing as I can hopefully draw one day; “ink” another day; and screentone and text the third (unless I do those on the same day I “ink” then it’ll only take me two). I’m hoping this will take me very close to the end of this chapter, if not finish before my spring semester starts. I’m not sure if it’s possible, but I am going to try!

Until then, if you want to contact me, or follow me on my other platforms, you can find me in the many ways below!

It’s finally done! As you can read, my next page for  Kokoro No Kinu is finally finished! It took longer than usual because of school, mainly my CG Character Production class project has taken a lot of my creativity, I’ve been chronicling my process of that on my site as well, so check it out!

Anyway, I now give you the next page to Kokoro No Kinu chapter 3!

Ch3 Page 10.png

As you know, this assuredly puts us past the half-way mark for this chapter, yay! This chapter has taken over a year to make, mainly because of multiple horrible creative blocks lasting months at a time, schoolwork and life has gotten in the way of my progress.

I keep wanting to increase my productivity on this, but the reality is that right now this is basically a side project that I am freely doing, and things like school, where I actually get most of my stabilizing income comes from, takes president to my side work.

This is also why I’m not currently working my ass off trying to make Magicka Mechanica like I would want either. It, at this time, would just be another non-paying side project.

I’m not saying this to complain, I’m just giving you my situation and why it’s taking so long to finish these pages.

Either way, here is my contact lists, in case anyone wants to get in touch, or follow me on other platforms!

After the long summer of drought, I have completed the next page of Kokoro No Kinu! The reason I didn’t complete it before (during the summer when I wanted to actually finish chapter three) was that I hit a particularly hard creative block that lasted the whole summer. This page had something to do with it.

While making it, I had a hard time trying to figure out how to layout this page. I had to literally re-arrange and tweak every panel in this page to fit the flow of the comic. after that brain wracking I hadn’t drawn anything until last week, when I hit pen to paper and the muse came flooding back!

So, without further ado, here is page 9 of chapter 3 of Kokoro No Kinu!

Ch3 Page 9.png

One of the problems I’ve been having is that I’m trying to incorporate more angles in the shots, switching things up, I noticed that I had fallen into the same two types of shots (this page has some of that).

The first, which isn’t as bad is establishing shots, looking at what’s on the table, or showing the outside of something etc.

The other type of panel that I have been working on correcting, is for some reason I had fallen into the leveled shot of a person, (basically if you had taken a camera shot at eye level of the character). You can notice this in panel 3 and panel 5 of this page for reference of what I mean. I have been meaning to change this up, add more detailed panels as well (see panel 1 for what I mean).

I’m still not sure about shadows, not how to add them, I think I’m pretty okay at that, but if and where to add them. If you notice, a decent number of other manga shade the background and scene, but don’t shade the characters, or if they do, it’s usually cross hatching, I’ve been wondering about that.

This chapter I’m experimenting with only shading the clothes on the characters, I’m trying to blend the use of detail and the minimalist style that manga usually has. I guess I’m still trying to figure out what style really works and looks best for me.

But with that being said, I think my muse has returned enough that I can actually get nose to the grindstone and actually make these pages on a more regular basis again.

Until then you know how to contact me, and if you don’t just look below!

As you can read, the next page is ready! I’m sorry for the delay, it’s been a crazy week for me, but I was able to find the muse to get it done. If you follow my twitter, you know that I had a bot hack my account and basically PM everyone in my followers list, so that was a pain, and so forth.

I know you all didn’t come here for my problems, you all want the next page, or at least I think you do, so I’m going to give you what you want!

So I’m trying to work on some thing with this page, I tried changing up the angles, changing up how I do the black and white style screening, and I changed Machiko’s hair. Originally Machiko’s hair was originally suppose to be lighter, but in the first chapter I made the mistake of inking in her hair, so I changed that and gave her original hair color back, mainly because you really couldn’t see the detail in her hair.

I’m working on making my layouts better and better, I noticed a disturbing trend that I started without knowing it, using basically the same height and angle, so I’m working to change that, make it more dynamic, like the first chapter was. Hopefully every page looks better than the last.

Hello all!

I apologize for the delay, I have been quite busy. My summer semester started, and one of my classes is an express class, meaning the assignments come at me twice as fast as my other class, so I have been swamped keeping up with that.

I have been thinking long and hard about my manga style, what I can improve and change to make it better. This has been the main reason why my muse was shut down for so long and why I was in a slump. I’ve been reviewing my technique, and hopefully it will improve in the coming pages.

Other than those two things, I’ve had my hands full with the Yuri.Media site, cracking down on spammers (so many… so many spammers). I’ve had to edit the member’s registration multiple times, including now an admin approval (basically me) in order to keep out the spammers (I know what to look for…). The group is still open to anyone who would like to join, and we always support our creators and reviewers!

But you all didn’t come here for that, you came for the page, so here it is!

Another page here! I’ve been kinda in a weird procrastination time warp this week. I was hoping to draw another page on monday, digital ink this page on Wednesday, and screen tone, bubble and word on Thursday and Friday…

None of that happened…

I instead did not draw the page, I inked on Friday, and if you follow my twitter, know I just finished all the other stuff just now. There is no excuse besides schoolwork and procrastination.

I’m still working on the project I teased at the last time. We’ve had some technical difficulties, but when we are finished with it, I’ll announce it. So without waiting… okay after this read more, the page!
