So I decided that i will post the next batch of 10 pages at 3 a week like it's been. Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. Right now I have page 60 to be drawn and shaded.
12 pages is not impressive to me at all for the duration of time, but i have a lot of personal and family pressures right now that demand attention. I went to NJ for two weeks and ended up getting sick there which postponed the return which cost me time. Renovation, and Dad had a stroke as well so I visit him every two days since he's paralyzed. It's about 40 km away, so it takes time as well since visiting hours are in the day only. I have a lot on my plate right now, needless to say.
I only mention that to excuse my slow progress. I wanted to have double the pages done, not only 12. I will continue to work throughout April on the book and hopefully get to 20 pages, or at least page 70. I took all of your comments and suggestions and right now I am just taking a final look at the pages before i post the first three of the new batch this week.5C pages 49 - 60:
To summarize, the next part of the book has more story and some more risk taking. I'm taking my time in this story and am in no rush. I enjoy working on it so much and really wonder how I will work on other stuff past this point.Will Commissions open?:
After this batch of pages are up, say till page 70, I will do a commission run and see if I can buy another month to work on it. I want 100 pages this fall, and to make a book so that next year I can have something for the conventions. I might open for commissions in June and will have a wider range of options starting at 225USD shipping incl for original art and tons of prints.
Ill have more details, and for the folks who donate/commission me for over 1000 USD/CAD they will have something in the book named after them (Like a company, street, city, mayor), or their likeness appear etc. I will have more details as to incentives and the commissions need not be 5C related.
Any 5C commissions will go in the book I intend to make.
Is 5th Capsule still free?:
5th capsule as an online story will always be free before any book is released. I said this is a gift, you don't have to buy anything if you don't want. As much as I can, I will work on it because I love it. The book and any merch is only to buy time to work on it, but the story will always be free right here on the largest art community web site. If dA ever closes, I will still offer it somewhere online for free, easily found, and accessible .
I only ask you to read it is all.
Your comments matter, I derive a lot of motivation from them and your insights. If the question you ask is answered in the story, I will not answer the comment, or if it will be a spoiler I will say so.
So just sit back, I am almost done my round of edits and then i will post something before noon!
Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!
