Today's my 10th anniversary on dA.  It's amazing, and I really can't express how much of an influence dA has been on shaping me as an artist and person--thank you all for being here for me: the people, community, and comments are why I still think of dA as my home.  My schedule's been a mess as I've transitioned from school into working full-time, and I'm still trying to figure out how to manage my time, but I hope to be more active here and keep up better, I swear.  

That being said, it's also been (more than) 10 years since my first ever iteration of Iris was created, and I realize that I just really, really, REALLY want to start this comic project as soon as possible, imperfections and growing pains be damned.  It's been way too long of me kicking around vague illustrations and disjointed/hard-to-follow random comic shorts, enough time of me experimenting and holding off out of fear of not being good enough.  Maybe it's also because the trailer for Bright [link] dropped recently too, and I realized, "Shit, they're already doing urban fantasy, I better get on this before it looks old".  If anything can give me a kick in the ass, it's competition, hahaha.  

So, yeah.  I want to start Iris, and I want to start it now.
That being said, comic pages will take a while, because I'm a methodical and boring person--I still have a lot of story for Iris to hash out in finer detail, but I'm hoping to at least break ground on a first chapter script really soon.  I took a screenwriting class this past term (while working, yup, go figure me) and I really, really loved it--I'm trying to continue to work with my professor to develop my scripts and stories.  I'm currently working on a Little Red Wolf screenplay lmao (it's great, ask me about it) but once I finish that, I'll really get to dig in to Iris, I hope.  

Anyway, the thing is, I really do want to focus on my writing.  I can't draw a comic without a script, so that's where my energies will be focused towards for now, I think.  

But it's not like I can put my pencil down either; I've been doing mostly just plein-air painting lately but I'd love to also start cranking out some more detailed concept art about the races in Iris, how Sigology works, the history, character refs if necessary, etc.  For the meantime though, just to stay active, I might try to color up and post a short comic thing I started a while back (one last one, I swear, lmao).  

Anyways, big news!!  I'm excited, and I hope that you guys will be too!  If you have any questions about Iris, please don't hesitate to ask me; it all helps me worldbuild and develop my story!

And so, I have some questions for you all (both comic creators and comic readers):  

-Do you write out scripts beforehand for your comic pages?  How far do you plan ahead?  What's your process like/how detailed is your script?
-What update schedule do you prefer?  Once/twice a week, or batch uploads once a month?  
-Color, or black and white?  Or some kind of monochrome/muted palette? 
-Do you support any comics/artists on Patreon?  Why/what rewards do you like getting?

I also read a comic book a day, so I guess you can say I like comics.

Happy birffay. :aww:

You're probably swimming upriver all week with ACCD stuff (or you're literally forging a river in a kickass forest somewhere??), but hope you get a chance to relax and enjoy yourself. ^^/

Ahhhhhhhhhh this is so friggin' super-belated, but gosh man thank youuuu!!!!  Yeah I've got full-time work and a screenwriting class and two clubs keeping me bust as heck lmao, but I had a great day so thank you!!

W-wow when the hell did I write this. XD;
I've literally spent the past 5 weeks just pounding away in Photoshop and not much else. >_>; Got a massive do-or-die deadline at the end of March, so yeah. What is sleep.

Sounds fun though! Actual screenwriting!! :0 I feel like I have to pick your brain about this sometime.
