I was recently interviewed for The PVDCast! It was a lot of fun and turned out great! Shout-out to John Orlando, who is a fantastic interviewer. You can find the episode here.
The Letters of the Devil II
Unfortunately, progress has been much slower than I had hoped. Inking with CosPain is very quick, but the art style for Letters is more detailed, which has hindered progress.
As of right now, I am not altering the timetable. I hope that, once I really get rolling, the process will get faster. There is a very good chance, however, that I will have to adjust the deadlines in the near future.
The good news is, I have room to maneuver in this case. Post-Production is basically the final stage, so the month between the current Post-Production deadline and the Total Completed Pages deadline is pure buffer. In addition, I spent part of last week setting up the InDesign file for the book, which will auto-update as I complete pages and drastically cut down on the time I need for the Post-Production stage. In other words, I have almost 2 months of extra time already built into the schedule. Even if I do end up pushing back the Inking deadline, the overall project deadline will not need to be changed.
And with that, this newsletter is at an end! Time to get back on track.
If you want to support my work further, please visit my online store. I also have Patreon and Ko-Fiaccounts if those are more your speed.
Rock on, guys, and never stop drawing.
