This took longer than anticipated… This is because my mood took a nosedive during the weekend, sleeping for nearly all day, schoolwork and other life stuff getting in the way. Despite all that, I still got the page finished, just one more page to go before the chapter is finished!

This chapter has taken WAY too much time to finish, and that is because I am a lazy asshole who keeps hitting slumps in my mood, creative blocks and horrible bouts of procrastination. This chapter should have been finished sometime last year. Still, it is almost over, then I have some remodeling to do with the site, some restructure of the story, and Chapter 4 is going to be a really heavy chapter that is going to push some people’s buttons, and go into some dark territory.

Anyway, enough of the ramblings, onto the page!

Anything that really needs to be said was done before the page, so I’ll just give my usual contact information and move on.

If you are looking at this, then you know the next page is here! I’ve been keeping to my schedule of working on Kokoro No Kinu between my Tuesday and Thursday classes, but that feels really slow for me, at this point I’m only releasing a page a week, which is fine, I guess, but I really wish I could be doing more on this end.

The problem is that between this and classes, I really don’t have much else that fits the theme of this “blog” (shudders, I hate that word). I watch a lot of good anime that is out this season (Like Yuri Camp, Marchen Madchen, Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san, Takunomi, Slow Start, and of course Citrus) and I’m engrossed in some really good shows (Star Trek Discovery, The Orville (Which just ended it’s first season in December), and Marvel’s Runaways (LOVED the comic, even more enthusiastic with the show, especially what they did with Nico and Karolina!) As well as way too many comics and books to name. There are already a lot of great reviewers who would do, and are doing, a better job then me, so I feel that area isn’t really right for me. Either way, I’ve complained long enough, let’s get onto the main event!

I think I talked enough above, that I really don’t have much else to mention, so I’ll do the usual and be off.

Hope Everyone had a Happy New Year!

After a week of Muse (What I call artistic drive) Burnout, I hunkered down last night and worked until 4 A.M. to make this next page, then slept for about half a day. I took a break over the holiday season, and couldn’t work back up the motivation or vision to start on this page. It was pretty frustrating.

I tried to start a few times, but as soon as I picked up  my pencil and made a few lines, the drive to do anything just went out on me. It’s a very disheartening feeling, wanting to do something, but your mind just shuts down as soon as you try to start. The creative wall is a hard thing to overcome, even if you want to do it.

No one really wants to hear about my complaining, so let’s get to the page! Also, check under the page for a little trivia quiz… and a (very) small prize for the person who gets it right!

Ch3 Page 15.jpg

Okay, so if you’re still reading, then you’re interested in this small trivia quiz, and the (might I stress VERY small prize) that comes along with it.

As you can tell, Tomoko likes to drink beer… a specific type of beer in fact. The questions are:

1) Can you tell what the beer she is drinking is based off of?

2) Can you tell what City Tomoko and Hitomi live in? Here is a hint: They live in the prefecture the beer is crafted in, as for the city, well:

(yes, I made this in RPG Maker)

If you know the answer, please say it in the comments! First one to answer wins.

The winner will receive a custom made art scan by myself (see, I told you it was small) of what ever you want (you can see my Gallery to get a sense of what kind of work I can do, and I will work my very best to make what you ask for (within my limits of course). I know it seems like a small thing, but I thought of it while drawing the page, and I thought it would be fun to do.

Until then, you can always reach, and follow, me in these ways:

Happy Holidays!

I hope you all are enjoying your holidays, what ever you celebrate!

The next page, as you can read, is finished! I’ve been on a roll lately, making a page every 3 days or so. I know this pace can’t last, so I’m making the most of it while I can. It’s been a bit of a tax on my system, but I’m working hard.

For all of you that have never asked “Hey, what music have you been listening to while working on these pages?” I’ve been listening to “A Very Scary Solstice” and “An Even Scarier Solstice” By the H.P.L. Historical Society. The albums are a collection of parody holiday carols and music that are all in the themes from the Lovecraft mythos. If you’re a fan of HP Lovecraft, or just a fan of parody music, these are perfect for the season.

Please note: This is not a promotion of any kind, I didn’t get paid to say this (I wish I was) I just love the music.

Before I get into anything else, let’s give you what you came here for: The next page!

Ch3 Page 14.jpg

You may or may not might remember that my New Years resolution for 2017 was to try and make at least one post a week. I know I’ve not held strictly to that, but I’ve also had a catch-up week or two where I made up for the weeks that I didn’t post anything. To be honest, I haven’t looked at the stats for this year, but I’m sure on some front I’ve failed.

Still, I’m trying to keep up to it the best I can. I know I’ve accomplished at least half of what I set out to do (which is often the case when working on projects) and even though that would be a failing grade in school, I would call it a win.

That may not seem like much, but consider what I do post. All of my posts are centered around a project, or my comic. I don’t do reviews (a lot more, and better, people already do that), I don’t create fan art (for personal reasons) and I rarely post “my thoughts” essays, you can easily look at my twitter for my thoughts on a lot of stuff, even though I’ll post some thoughts or updates around the pages of my comic, the pages are always the center of the attention.

This means that every post I make has to have creative substance to it. This doesn’t mean I think other people who post essays or reviews or fan art are bad. Of course not, quite the opposite. Everyone has their method and reasons to do things, (hell, I get the lists for what shows I should watch each season from reviewers, especially which ones have yuri!) and if it works for them, perfect. It’s just not my style.

But enough of my rambling thoughts, I have more pages to work on! If you want to hear any more of my ramblings (I have no idea why you would) you can follow me in these various ways:

If you can read titles, then you can obviously tell that the next page of Kokoro No Kinu is up! I’m doing great on my schedule (at least after that first week of announcing it, but let’s not dwell in the past) and I’m showing no signs of stopping!

I really don’t know what else to add, so let’s just get to the page!

Ch3 Page 13.jpg

 

As you can see, this page had no real dialogue, so I could finish it faster. I also think dialogue would have taken away from the scene itself. Nothing needs to be said, all of it can be interpreted in the body language and actions.

I believe that is a very important skill when making anything visual, show don’t tell. If you can pull something off with looks and body language, or even just how a scene is shot or shown, do it instead of telling us about it. I hope I do it right. I’d like to think I get get expressions and complex emotions off without having to spell them out.

Either way, if you want to tell me if I do a horrible job of it, or any other concerns, you can tell (and follow) me in the various ways below!

I have completed the next Kokoro No Kinu page, as you should know, since you already read the title. If all goes according to plan, I should have the next one up before, but if not, I wish everyone reading a happy holidays (which ever one you choose to celebrate) and I’ll definitely have another page (hopefully two) before the new years, so I’ll make that well wishes then.

I’m kinda short on ideas of what exactly to talk about, so let’s just get to the page, shall we?

Ch3 Page 12.jpg

On an unrelated note, my fan broke recently, and I am really bummed out about it. I do not have the funds to buy a new one, and it really sucks, because my internal temperature is always set to broil.

Either way, I hope everyone is liking how the comic is going… and I just noticed that I did not shade Tomoko in the final panel… but, in all reality, it kinda works. I wonder if anyone else noticed before I said anything… anyway I am too lazy to change it now, so it’s just in there.

Anyway, if any of you want to complain about the lack of shading on Tomoko in the final panel, or just want to contact me, you can do so in these ways:

Note: I’m hearing some negative things about patreon lately, not exactly sure what that is about, seeing as I’ve never gotten a donation from there, and I have basically ignored it (mainly because it hasn’t served me any purpose whatsoever) but I’ve been thinking of adding a Ko-fe account as well as a form of donation, in which no one will use, of course, but it is another worthless idea I had.

Back to work on the next page!

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!

Ch3 Page 6fin.png

Because I am lazy, and it’s late, I’m going to add the normal contact info below:

Alright, Another page is up! I know I was working on it two weeks ago, but I have been very very busy, which I will explain below the picture (just a hint, I will make a post about it when it’s fully ready). I’ve been busy with that project, I wasn’t feeling well for a week, and I had two exams very close to each other. I buckled down today and worked all day (taking a break because my mouse had gone to shit, but I have a new one now, a nice purple one!) to make sure this page was finished, and it is!

So without further wait, here it is!

Ch3 Page 5 sceen

Alright, so I’ve been working on a project with a few other people who create yuri of all kinds, and reviewers of yuri, to make a collection of people who predominately make yuri (or other lesbian) works. We are hoping to make a community of creators, reviewers and fans to connect and grow with each other.

This group is 100% free to everyone who creates or reviews (or just really likes) yuri related material. Essentially it is suppose to be a place where people to get together and discuss with other creators and reviewers. I am going to be putting up a post when we think it is ready, giving more details, but for now, you all can check it out at Yuri.Media, where we repost all of our group’s blogs and other works.

The twitter @YuriMedia, where all of the group’s site updates will be tweeted out.

And please join our community, where, when we get it up and running, will hopefully be a hub for those who love yuri, and want to see some new works, or talk and share with any subject, can come and hang out.

I will warn that there is not a lot of people, mainly because we haven’t made it public and shared it with anyone, but hopefully that will change when we decide to make it officially known.

Until next time,

-Umedyn
