It's a bit early to be writing a goals list for next year, but I'm of the opinion that you shouldn't hold off until tomorrow what you can do today. With that in mind, here's a breakdown of what I'm working on at the moment and what I plan to do in the future. Current Projects
At this very moment I have two projects on the go. Another Boom!Sonamy comic and getting Pen Pals going. The Boom comic is 5 pages long and I'm nearly finished the Sketches (basically my equivalent of Pencils before I move onto Inking). Pen Pals I have the first page done, aside from colouring because I want to try something new with it so I can keep learning new things and bettering myself over this process. But either way you'll see those at some point in October because November... November is gonna be psycho-bonkers-crazy for me, guys. I'm gonna be so busy. And some of it will likely spill over into December. GUH
But in the meantime, between releases (I never officially announced this) I tend to post WIPs on my Tumblr: celepom.tumblr.com/
I also reblog things I like, find interesting, funny or support so if you want check it out. Comics... Comics? Comics!
Current projects aside, I have two other fan comics that I want to write scripts for and draw out in order to continue flexing my comic-making muscles. There's a handful of other plot-bunnies bouncing around in my head but they're a lot smaller and are things I keep putting off in order to spend time on the longer stories. A couple of the random ideas are revisiting story ideas I had last year and just going ahead and making the pages and let the stand for themselves. There's also something I would like to redraw, but that one can wait. And then the Sonic Boom games come out in November and Hooooo BOY am I expecting inspiration to kick me in the teeth when I finally play em.
Oh, and did I mention that those two other fancomic ideas - neither of them is Sonic-related. That's right, it won't be just
Sonic fan comics coming from me anymore! Heck, hopefully it won't even be solely fan comics anymore... Which means... Original Webcomic
I've been working on one project in particular for a few months now. Hammering out the character designs, the story, setting, coming up with a visual style I want to use to keep it visually unified, all that fun stuff. I haven't really been sharing any of it online thus far because nothing feels quite finished
but I am gaining confidence in it and my big goal for 2015 is to start posting the first chapter. My stretch goal would be to actually finish
that first chapter, but we'll see what happens. Endgame
I may have mentioned this before at some point, but I've wanted to be a comic book artists since I was 12. And this is the first time in my life where I feel like I'm starting to make real strides towards that goal (outside of youthful bravado from my high school years
). However, even if becoming a professional is still a ways off in the distance I'm gonna keep having fun, writing and drawing comics which I hope you all enjoy.
Here's to having fun!
