Hey guys I’m gonna be streaming how to make a simple model and how to animate it in maya!! pop in if you wanna see the process! I should be startin at like 8:15 eastern time?http://www. twitch.tv/gforgannon
IT’S GOIN DOWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN. (Mad will be here too)
Gannon’s doin a stream while I work on comic stuff (or maybe play Minecraft in the background…)
Mad, are you gonna do reprints of the Sakana volumes?? I didn't know how to get one before, but now I have a friend who lives in the States and one in Canada, so I could prolly ask them to buy it for me. I live all the way in the Philippines...
Hey there! I do ship all over the world (but the price of shipping is more expensive the further I have to ship, so the rate does go up.)
Right now I’m so inundated with work that I can’t guarantee a quick, reasonably-timed turnaround for store orders, and I also can’t guarantee regular Sakana updates. So I have to keep them out of the store for now to save everyone some hassle.
ON THAT NOTE: I’m going to be redesigning the covers for Vol. 1 and 2 for a re-release when Volume 3 eventually drops (hopefully this summer). I also don’t want people who have recently ordered the comics to feel like they just missed a good opportunity, so I’m spacing everything out.
Thanks for your interest and I hope this answers some of your questions!
I was JUST FINISHING a huge photoshop piece that was doubling as a class assignment and professional work for hire piece, when my computer blue-screened. I had saved like two minutes before but now when I open the file it’s JUST A FLAT BLACK BACKGROUND AND NOTHING ELSE. It still says it’s 200ish megabites, which was the size it was up to before the crash, so PRESUMABLY EVERYTHING IS STILL THERE SOMEWHERE BUT HIDDEN AND I NEED IT BACK.
I’m having A VERY BAD DAY and I REALLY HOPE there is SOME WAY TO FIX THIS.
(also here is a list of things I’ve already tried)
-Opening the file in a different program (Illustrator)
Have you ever drawn all of Taisei's family? They look like they'd be really interesting and I've only seen Genkei and Taisei.
Taisei has a mom, dad, two younger sisters, a younger brother and an older brother (Genkei.) Genkei is the only other Tachibana who is somewhat relevant to the main plot of Sakana, but all the others will hopefully show up in side comics if the planets ever align and I get time to actually draw the side comics.
Here’s some relevant stuff I’ve drawn in the past few years.
A super big thank you to everyone who was all excited about the spontaneous Sakana update the other day: I’m so thankful that you’ve all been so patient with me these past few months, and you’re still jazzed about the comic!
Currently I’m between professional projects, but I’m hoping to nail down a new paying gig within a month. So, to try and stave off the great big pockets of time when I can’t update the comic, I’m going to attempt something I’ve never attempted before. A BUFFER. A 15ish PAGE BUFFER THAT WILL KEEP THE COMIC GOING FOR AT LEAST ANOTHER FEW WEEKS IN THE EVENT OF A PROFESSIONAL OBLIGATION.
I’ll be at Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, WA this coming weekend (March 27-30th) but when I get back I’m going to hop right to work on this. Regular Show: SKIPS has proven that IT IS POSSIBLE for me to PENCIL AND INK 12 COMIC PAGES IN 24 HOURS, but it is an awful feat that I hope to never recreate. The good news is that I’m faster now than I was before, and I think I can get the buffer done in two or so weeks at no expense to my health or well being. The hardest part will be not uploading a page as soon as I finish it :V
My plan is to finish Sakana Vol. 3 by the end of this school quarter (the end of May) and have it ready to sell by hopefully Supercon in July but definitely Otakon in August. Maybe I’ll Kickstart it, WHO KNOWS.
ONE LAST THING: I’ve been in kind of a poopy mood lately and I’m going to try and dial back my websurfing for the next few weeks to see if that helps. The internet’s been stressing me out lately and I need to focus on my work. I’ll be around if you need to get in contact with me, and my skype will always be on (if you have my skype) so I won’t be totally gone. Chances are you won’t even really notice I’m not around since I don’t post a lot to my main tumblr!
(on that note, my inspiration tumblr is pretty much always active, but not very interesting to follow unless you just like looking at pictures.)
Now that Sakana’s up again I’m taking anonymous asks back off! I’m sorry to those of you who would prefer to speak anonymously, but if you tell me to reply privately I’ll make sure our correspondence stays between us.
This just cuts back on the amount of weird or spoilery questions I get and saves me a lot of stress. :I
Hey. is there something wrong with Sakana on Mangamagazine? Most of the chapters are blank...
Heya, I think what you’re seeing is “BLANK STATUS: Missing 24 of 24” or whatever, and that just means that I haven’t uploaded blank pages with no dialogue in order for people to download and post translated versions of the comic in other languages.
Also it’s been a while since I’ve been able to draw chapter illustrations so most of those are blank mangamagazine placeholders. The actual pages are there, though. I just checked and they’re all still there and viewable.
If I manage to complete all the pages I’m planning for in the next month I will have drawn and inked 170 comic pages, scripted 210 comic pages, colored 10 comic pages, and lettered 140 comic pages since October.
I said I HOPED it would start updating again in March, but I’m staring at a huge stack of Skips comics I still have to draw so W E ’ L L S E E …
(this is the final issue of Skips though, so hopefully I’ll be able to get it done quick and (after another comic I have to draw for homework) be able to take a break from drawing comics by drawing more comics.)
