So, I think I've finally settled on a name for the comic. I am going to call it "Drift" unless another name jumps out at me. It seems to fit. For now.
On that topic though, does anyone else find it really hard to name things? I find it almost impossible. It's not that I can't think of names, it's just that none of them seem to fit the characters really. Or I worry that they are too cheesy/too srs bisnis. Or that maybe I'll hate them after a while but it'll be too late to change them. Am I the only one like this?
Anyway! The story of the comic itself is actually coming along really nicely. I've worked out most of the events and their chronological sequence, just filling in a few gaps at the end (though I'm pretty sure I'm getting closer to finalizing that part of the story too) and then I'll be moving along to the actual comic layout/concept art part. Which, to be honest, I've already dabbled in a bit (couldn't help myself!) so you should be seeing more actual artwork soon. Yay!
I'm thinking that doing an actual storyboard will be a fun but rather unneccesary step. So I'll just save that for my next project, which I'm pretty sure will be an animation. :3 I've had a cute little story about a Gryphon on the brain since high school and I've always wanted to make a little animated short about him.
Other than comic updates, life itself is peachy right now. Mostly because I'm on Spring Break until the 16th, so here's hoping that I can make some good progress on this project in the next week. Not much going on in real life outside of teaching being super time-consuming and various social obligations (game nights, small groups, etc). But I'm getting better about balancing my time spent being busy and my time spent resting. It's a work in progress, but I'm getting there! The habit of booking myself solid for weeks at a time is a bad habit left over from college, but I'm slowly getting that out of my system. 5 years later, granted, but progress is progress.
Hope you all are having a marvelous Spring Break as well! Or, if you aren't in school, then a marvelous weekend.
