It is here! The final page of Kokoro No Kinu Chapter 3! It has literally taken over a year to get this done, part because of my own procrastination , and partly because of life. As much as I would love to be working on this full time, life and being able to eat and pay bills comes first.

Working on this chapter has been an amazing journey! I want to give a special shout out to everyone who follows my efforts, and those who encouraged me along the way.

No more sappy shit, lets get to the last page of Kokoro No Kinu Chapter 3!

Ch3 Page 19

And there it is! With this chapter 3 is officially done! Now I get to tweak some stuff, and upload it to the few sites that I personally post it at… and then other sites steal those and post them in other places, but I don’t really have a problem with that, more exposure is better!

So for the last time in chapter 3, here is how you can talk to me!

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!

Ch3 Page 17.jpg

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:

Map005.png

(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!

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!
Ch3 Page 11.jpg

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!

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!
