Happy New Year! Progress on issue 4.

Happy New Year, 2013 to all! Let's hope peace and prosperity reach more people than in 2012. Thanks to all of you who have supported my efforts in "grOw". The amount of work put into these series would not be achievable without your $upport! Thank you!

On the grOw/cOmic#5, issue 4 front, I've made great progress on the issue. 12 out of the 20 pages have been fully pencil drawn. (Yes, 20... 2 more than usual!) They look great. They took a little extra work because of the extreme Poser poses and camera angles needed for this part of the story. Also, most of the backgrounds for the issue have been set-up and I have begun their rendering in my 3D program.

My website is up and down...

But it's not just mine. A LOT of websites are experiencing high-traffic causing latency. These websites are being hosted by Network Solutions, and they are monitoring and working on a fix. Hang in there. I am still around. Seems that "other country" groups are trying to bombard certain servers with denial of service traffic (my take on it).

Still here. The world goes on...

The Mayans were right. It was the stupid interpreters that were wrong.  :)  As far as the Mayans were concerned, it may have just been time to change their calenders on their walls from "Cute Catz!" to "Bodacious Mayan Mammaries".

Anyway, I am still here as well. I know it's been a long time since my last post.  Time between issues is usually slow on the blog, as I work my way through gearing up all the background planning for the next installment.  Unfortunately, this time, I was also hit with some serious "RL" graphic design work. Those who have followed me and my blog for a while may remember that this seems to happen at this time of year. Clients wrapping up projects before the year ends and they take off on vacation (or "holiday" for those non-US folk); while others start planning for projects to begin in the new year.  While this round of work is not over, it has eased some what.

However, this does not mean that work on issue 4 has not yet begun. On the contrary, quite a bit of pre-production has been accomplished. I just have not gotten to the stage to show previews yet.

Issue 4 is requiring a lot of Poser planning. There will be many dramatic camera angles and changes in sizes of ... ahem... a certain character that I need to get correct. I also had to finish planning out the layout of the issue. While the script was already written, I only had about half the issue drawn out in thumbnail form. In addition to all of this, I have been working setting up the backgrounds for rendering which takes time. But work on the meat of the visuals has started as well, as I have already pencil drawn the first 2 pages, and I am about to sit down to do more when I finish writing this blog post.

May your Holidays be filled with dreams of big boobs, giantesses, and growth sequences to your heart's content!  XD
