The current delay in updates.....

I have no good exscuse. I've gotten my drivers liscence, finally, so the job hunt has been under way, and I've been working on story boarding, but somethings are currently out of order so I haven't actually drawn out any of the new pages. I'm hoping updates will resume in a week or so. That is my hope, but I make no gurantees.

Finale News

A few people have been wondering what will happen to DitLoaC when this chapter finishes, so I'll fill you in with the projected idea.
DitLoaC, as you know stands for Day in the Life of a Cosplayer. As you might've noticed there's been little cosplay in this comic, that's not going to change.
DitLoaC, the title, more applies to me. In that as the comic comes out, it's under the "working title" of DitLoaC, but when it is finished, it'll get it's "release title".
The title of the current story arc is in fact UP/||/down (trust me, the arrows look alot cooler when they're drawn). Which is what it'll be released, when I finish prepping past pages and finally get either my mom or my friend Mel to run a thorough grammer and spell check for me, in book form as (with extra short stories of Yitsana, the vampires, and maybe Lit).
So when UPdown finishes, there'll be a few changes.

First: I WILL do the 24 page colour work. I'm still slowely working on it. But I promised, so that'll go up when it's done. (and like all full colours, it'll be updated M-F till it's done.)
Second: The update schedule will likely change to once a week, to accomodate the fact that I expect to have an appalling lack of free time when I get a real full time job.
Third: It'll be a different story.
-I'll be trying a different drawing style
-Completely new characters
-Hopefully a different TYPE of story

So here is where I ask YOU guys what you want to read. Let's try the CAD style. Read the summaries below, and send an email with JUST the word in bold to my email. The one with the most votes wins. Voting ends, let's say Feb 20th?

Story One, to vote for this send the word MIRROR
In a world filled with science, there is an unexplained phenominon known as "The Mirror", anyone who crosses through it is never seen again. Yamanobes' parents where researches, and part of an expidition that went to the other side of the mirror ten years ago, and left her orphaned. On the tenth anniversary of thier disapperance, Yamanobe decides to take her chances and go to the other side in search of them.

Story Two, to vote for this send the word PEACH
Mika, a eight year old girl, makes a big mistake when she takes a bite out of an under ripe peach. Thanks to the help of a drunk fairy, she's now haunted by the ghost of that peach. Having the ghost of a piece of fruit always hovering around you isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when the new student in her class is a wizard, and has determined that she's a necromancer.

Story Three, to vote for this send the word STAR
When the guardian witch of peoples dreams slips through a portal and into the lap of one of the few people who actually wants to kill her, she has to convince him that the king who wants her head is just mad. The kings wish to have a son to succeed him never came true, so the knight who brings the witch who over-see's peoples dreams head on a platter will be named as his successor.

I know I really should but I'll Never Forget up here as an option, as that's the prequel of Kenji's story. Where he was, and meeting Jeremy, whose in a similar situation as himself. But the meeting of Litalra plays out differently in that story, not to mention I'm still working on the specifics (aka-I have NO IDEA where it's going) but I figure the three choices above are good.
Please send all votes to MinekaC@hotmail.com, otherwise they won't count!

err........ yea....

Sadly Fridays page required shots of Sera at the library. Considering the fact I couldn't leave the house (sick+I still can't drive. I know, I know. Trust me, I know.) I didn't get those pics. So hopefully I'll get them today, and the page will only be a day late! Sorry!

And for those with good eye sight, wondering what happened to the menu's. That's right! There's a new chibi Mineka begging for Mineka. Feel free to ignore her though, after the appalling job on keeping up with my updates, I don't deserve it.
I don't even have incentive stuff at the moment. How lame is that?!
I need to get stuff done. That's it, I'm going to hunker down and spend from now till the first doing nothing but DitLoaC stuff, even if I don't want to.

YOSH! A Ravyn Flamingo Christmas Carol is under way!
I apologize for the quality. It's going to look like it was put together by a four year old. I kid you not.
I'd blame my equitment, but truth is I'm just lazy. Yes, my camera is far and away not a pro piece. It's meant for point and click pics for amusement parks, conventions, and annoying family members at social functions. Not for any thing that's supposed to be mistaken for art work.
With that said, I apparently have no idea how to pace myself, and my 9 pages of filler has kinda exploded into something more like 20 (I haven't finished the story board yet)
So the comic will update EVERY SINGLE DAY until the story is done. Then I'll resume Yit/Lit DitLoaC story arc after new years.
Must finish current project so I can work on second one. Oye vay. This is what I get for falling behind on keeping the buffer up. I deserve this I guess.

In other news: I've got around seven pages of the Ryoten/Yitsana story done, or rather inked. So I'm working on it. So don't worry, you guys paid for it, it'll be up eventually.
I'll change the menu image in a bit to get rid of the text.
Alright! Enjoy the inanity of Seraphyn talking to random dolls and plushies.


I am so sorry I am putting you guys through this.

December... special?

I had been a big drawing funk lately. Actually, it's Sera's fault. Since I got her, I've been spending all my creative energy on making her new clothes, and giving her face-ups (she's on face-up number three)
As a result, I was bad, and massively slacked. My buffer is now gone. Made obvious by Fridays.... page.
So, whilest this Mondays page is going to be the proper page, I have a pile of work to do (namely everything) to get a buffer back.
Sera has..... be "asked" to fill the void of comic pages she has brought about.
Since it's the holiday season, and thanks to Brigid's wonderful idea, I was thinking of doing a BJD "Night Before christmas" short story for the holidays. I'm thinking this'll give me enough time to get a buffer back, and it'd keep pages going.

I also promised I wouldn't miss any updates after my three month break awhile back. I'm begining to realise that was a very bad promise to make. But I try to keep my promises. Anyway, so if it's alright with you, I'd like to do that. It'll give you guys something to read, and it'll be in full colour, I think. Haven't exactly worked out what look I'll go with.

Alright, so, that's everything for the time being.

Holiday stuff....

Two things on todays agenda to mention:
1. Thanks to a very nice person helping me out with shipping costs for holiday presents, the fifty dollar mark has been hit. So I'll be working on the 24 page full colour Yitsana/Ryoten comic later this week. I shall keep you all posted on it's progress.
2. Since alot of people from the doll community seemed to have wanted one:
I will be selling some Japanese paper doll bookmarks. They'll be three dollars a piece. I'll upload some pictures of them by monday and give full details in a new entry.

All Hallows Eve!!

My all time favourite holiday, that's right even trumpts Yule in my book. I might love presents, but candy+dress up=win
Can't dress up for Yule.
So not really much to talk about in regards to DitLoaC, just wanted to say

In case anyone is curious the full colour Yitsana/Ryoten comic donation meter is at 15/50 I really should change the sign accordingly, but I just don't have the energy for it. I've been bad, I'm getting woefully behind in updating my buffer. I'm hoping something will kick me in the mood to get the ten or so pages I have half done on my Antec finished...... but I've been in that "I'm so bored, and there's nothing I WANT to do" type of moods. Most unpleasant.

I'll be quiet now, and yes, Ba'al is an ass. Gabriel pops into the comic next Monday! YAY! I love my psychotic little angels, they're so cute! In my opinion anyway.
