Back from Japan!

Journal Entry: Wed May 21, 2014, 6:37 AM
I usually don't vacation very well since I love my work. As much as I enjoyed the time there and the new things I saw, I missed work dearly, especially 5C.

Japan feels so familiar to me that it doesn't have the allure of a mysterious country yet it's still quite enjoyable! I went to Akihabara and got a cheap model in a second hand shop of a Toyota Hiace, and also got some Deleter paper for me to work on new pages with since its so cheap there.

In the next few days i will find out the next batch of work for me to work on. I have exhausted my funds and will start to work on paying work. This means 5C will be a on a bit of a hold which is not news to any of you.

Depending on the work load, I will open for commissions in the next month or so. Hopefully, i can save up enough to work on another 15 - 20 pages. I don't like the idea of switching between normal work and 5C since once I get in the mode, things become very clear.

I have been receiving a lot of compliments on the pacing and writing within the story and i find that truly flattering since none of my coworkers read or acknowledge me as one! If they saw how I actually piece this thing together and write it, they would cringe. I don't care too much about the professionals appreciating my work as much as you the fans liking it. If 5C goes completely under the radar or blows up, either way it will be written the way we like it.

I have a bunch of ideas that i had while I was in Japan, it seems every time i am forced to stop working on it, i end up seeing a lot of new things that widen my horizons and add to the story. After this post, i will start another few pages and review what i have plotted out of the next few pages.

I actually had a dream that I came across about 10 5C pages, was very interesting and gave me some new ideas!

I will get on it now, and will continue adding to the map as well! If your name isn't on there here's you second chance!

Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!

You mean suggestions for locations on the map? If so, "Sexytown" gets my vote.

Mmmmm.... Sexytown....
Mmmm, mmmm, mmm.

Welcome back! Japan is such an awesome place to visit. I got to go on my first trip there this past december and it was so inspiring!

It is a cool place.

It really is. Tokyo is so expensive though lol I preferred Nagasaki personally.

You inspire. :) And definitely visiting Japan for a short while can have more creative impact than living there for long.

Welcome back!

Having my name there would be pretty cool.

Oh, well, I'm a lurking reader of 5C and so far I quite like it. So, if there is still a remote landmark to be named, I'd be honoured to inspire its name. ;)

Keep up the good work!

Welcome back! Looking forward to the next batch of 5C pages!

Welcome back!  I know that feeling of kinda enjoying the holiday but feeling you're falling behind on all the things you passionately want to work on.  I swear I could never have anything planned and I'd still feel busy with all the art and music projects I want to work on :)
Shall eagerly await more 5C!  I've started pooling money from commissions I do to buy a commission from you, so excited to see when you open those up too ;D

Alaikum Asalaamu!
I just came back from a vacation to Japan about two weeks ago. Where did you go? I visited Yokohama, Tokyo, Kawasaki, Nokogiriyama, Nagano and Matsumoto. It was a very full and busy trip!

What place names are you adding to the map now? I'd like to call dibs on something. Anything really.

Commissions?! Our OCs or yours?
ChristianPrime1-Bot Featured By Owner May 21, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I know the feeling on not vacationing/going on holiday unless if it does something to do with my own cosplay photography work nowadays.  =.=

Glad your trip in Japan did go well though.

Good luck on continuing your 5c comics though. :aww:

I wish I could commission stuff from you, but I don't think I have the capability or allowance to do so yet, I'm afraid. :tears:

Maybe next time. ^_^
