After a fun week of computer based dilemas, my Laptop has finally buggered itself to the point it blue-screens during start up.
So everything I’d been working on, such as Legends of Thyilos, and all the things I did have planned are on hiatus until I can get a new computer, or depending on the cost, I may resort to getting the laptop marginally fixed so it can start up at least. But the main priority for that machine is to get the Drives recovered, mainly Drive D which has Legends of Thyilos on it!
So I’m going to keep hoping that when I get a quote on what can be done about my defunct laptop, that its within a reasonable range, because my car registration is up and it takes priority! So that now combined with my laptop means I’ll be broke for a month or so too. 😛 Fun times! but what can you do? I’ve heard a lot that life is never meant to be easy, so I’ll just have to keep my chin up and focus harder on what I can still do for now. Who knows, with my laptop out of commission, maybe I’ll get into hand drawing and do more painting?
So sorry about the this, hopefully things will resume as normal soon.
Till next time.

So since my last post, I’d intended to make both a little mascot for Studio Wisp, and, hopefully a new background theme for the website.
At least a small start on the mascot began?
So for the last two weeks the house has been undergoing a lot of renovation. Back in November some abnormal storms hit Victoria, and up where I live, it managed to over-run quite a lot, and our house was flooded out! Which led to a pretty entertaining week… But now things have been finally going on, and there new floors and such are being put together, so I’ve been up and about cleaning and migrating constantly. But it’s not so much I couldn’t have done the work I wanted to do, as much as a lack of motivation from fatigue and lack of sleep. But at least Tales of Thyilos has been going forward in progress, and project is probably more important than making a caricature for Studio Wisp. Or at least that’s the excuse I’ll have to stick to.
On another little matter that’s come to mind. The current novel I’ve been putting up named “UNTITLED”, has run out of chapters. I’ve got one more I’m going to put up after this post, but then that’s it. So between other things, I can either read up on what I have so far and work on a new chapter between making ToT and looking for work; or alternatively, I can slip on a “To be continued”, and start uploading chapters from a different novel.
I’m on the fence about both, because I’m too focused on Tales of Thyilos still, but I do want to continue that novel, but the same can be said for re-writing the lost chapter to Samurai 2020.
So if anyone has an opinion on whether or not I should put a focus into writing more chapter to Untitled as a priority; or else to focus on working on ToT and just upload chapters from a different novel for the time being (or none at all?), drop me a comment in here. I value your inputs!. 😉
Tata for now everyone! Hope you have a great weekend.

Much has been going on recently. Tales of Thyilos has been getting a bunch of new concept art popping up, along with some new features to make the game run more smoothly and more enjoyable. It’s going along just as I’d hoped, which means being able to stick to the deadline of releasing a demo sometime in January! 😀
ToT isn’t the only game popping up with new art though. The other members over at Lucid Flame are flipping the switch and are on the go. Seeds of Time has also reached the point of construction and the first screen shots are up. 🙂
Along with the game projects, some more commissions are slipping in through the cracks. There’s a SFX Project going for a web-game client. In honesty, the SFX part is going well, but making jingles are proving to be out of my range (as I tried to explain early when I was recruited), but, it’s something I’ll have to somewhat manage for now! It’s probably the toughest challenge yet that I’ve undertaken design wise.
Speaking of which, there’s been an awkward delay in finishing and posting up the major production from this year. It hasn’t been forgotten, just nudged aside to allow for current work to be taken care of. I’d hope it too would go up some time in January. I guess only time can tell how successful it is!
Lastly, It seems I’ve fallen behind on posting narrative updates again. So here’s my pitch instead of apologising for terribly delays.
By February, I will publicly release a BETA version of the Thyilosian Lore book, which will for now, be an e-book (free unless you want to donate to the respective designers who did the art and concepts that’ll appear in it), but in time I hope there’ll be enough work compiled to release it as a complete E-Book (which will probably be free as well), and if possible, a Book book. Like physical pages and stuff! 😀
But if only one print can be released, we’ll probably auction it, signed and stuff, and then the money can go to a worthy charity. 🙂
… yes I think that’d make up for my tardiness on novel updates. 😛
Alright, all that aside. Here’s a some quick links to weapon art I’d finished since the last time I posted some up. I’ve one more of these commissions to go, then I can try and move onto another commission! Hopefully done before Christmas like that SFX one :S
Bye-bye for now ^_^;;
And have a safe holidays! (or for that matter, be safe anyway. 😉 )
