so as you have noticed there has been a severe drop in updates this month.

there has been a serious health issue in my family that has made me focus on paid work  for a month as a contingency

these   work tasks will however be done by march 10th and then we are back on posting schedule.



thank you for your patience
just want to have a journal to link to people who are curios as i just lack the time to answer everybody :)

1 yes sunstone will be sold in printed forrm as a  series of books

2 each chapter will be 1 comic issue

3 i am currently finalizing printing arrangements

4 printed versions will feature improved art and writing, by art i mean obvious tweaks in anatomy , inking and so on, by writing i mean streamlined  while keeping true to the material and  at times better worded... with less typos....

I DIDN'T SAY NO TYPOS!

5 SUNSTONE WILL GENERALLY HAVE ABOUT 22 CHAPTERS

6  you might say it will be a  sort of a 4 big  parts to the story
first is the story of ally and lisa to a certain point, called sunstone
second is a story of alan and anne which will last about till chapter 12. ally and lisa will very much be featured in it vbut the focus will be shifted. subtitle of this one will be mercy
third will be about marion and james subtitled...not sure yet XD
fourth will be unification of all the stories with their respective finales

7 printed comics will feature extra pages unseen till now. by this i don't mean there will be hardcore sex or even more pages of sex (listens for a collective sigh)  extra pages will  be  there to polish out the storytelling and  offer some fun insights

8 AND THIS IS CRUCIAL!

once all the chapters are finished and books are out,  i will celebrate the end of this journey by giving away the full digital version of the comic.

not the one you have now, i mean the printed  comic version in digital format.
while i know many of you are eager to support this  story by buying the books, i also get that not everyone is able to.

i was there once myself. but i will not see you guys and girls  miss out on this .

so yes, ultimately all of you will see the finished version.


9 will there be hardcover editions?  if the sales numbers justify it. hell if it sells enough i might have a super deluxe leather corset bound editions XD

10 prices on printed books...that one i don't know. it depends on  printer and distribution and other misc costs. i presume it will end up being about 15 usd, but who knows, maybe even less as that end price is often cut down by   comic stores and amazon.  so that part is too early to say for now. i will keep you updated on it

that about sums it up i think.
so i just used the previously done stuff in a new context. there are very strong reasons for them being used  beyond the sheer usefulness of convenience.
i will post another strip in about 2 to 3 days so keep an eye out to that :)
today i woke up with my wife giddily urging me to check this bit of awesome XD...

Bloodstone by DarkerEve

and my mind being a compilation of stupid puns with a few coherent thoughts floating around here and there....

of course my first thought was...

hang in there anne XD
i'm working on the next strip atm. but post 21st of december i will have the time to spam out quite a few of them so that will be fun.

i am  currently juggling  ravine, aphrodite 9  twitch, and sunstone + upgrading the artwork and writing for printed version of sunstone,  as i have to get the book 1 done by years end so i can finalize the printing deal on that one.

now in 2014,  chapters 5 and 6 will be completed, thuseending the first "book" XD
sunstone...


then the second "book" begins called ... mercy...

(and no, i'm not that bloody pretentious to think them as books, just.. dunno, kinda fits given their   nature as separate but interconnected narratives)

aand some of you just had that look of.. oooooh i get it!
to you i say.. yes! it is exactly that :)

to all of you staring confusedly at the screen i say...

that too! XD
saturday 23rd :)

and in it you get the fun of seeing how context can really turn things around XD
so, time for some updates.

next week i will be posting the next strip and possibly another one. , by this i mean the next official chapter continuation. before that there is an alan ministrip i'm working on  that is just.. ..well.. something nice, ull see :) not trolling this time XD

now , on publishing.
so far i have gotten a bunch of offers by publishers  so that is not twhat is delaying it. personally i have my own preferance  so i will  probably take that road.

why it is still not out?
simple.  going from the webcomic to standard comic format required a lot of work in creative cropping and reformatting.

this brought with itself a problem with making the writing fit.

this was an impossible task which required me to rewrite the whole damn thing.
flow has been significantly improved. small errors in continuity fixed,(like ally telling lisa that the bathroom is third door on the left when it is actually the second door... SHADDAP THAT'S IMPORTANT!)

a lot of writing is being redone. now, have no fear, it's still the same  stuff, just better worded,  smoother flowing, and  less repetitive at times.

keep in mind that sunstone is very much made in a a stream of thought kind of writing, very minimal planning and editing in general. o the printed version will actually have that included.

i intend to keep everything good and smooth out  the  bumps here and there. and yes there will be pages added here and there

now some of you are feeling bummed out because you cant get the printed version where you live, or you just cant afford it

trust me i've been there. but you wont miss out.

because once i have published   a few issues i will be posting  updated digital versions here as a fresh new series of pdfs

sunstone never was a big moneymaking scheme,  nor was it motivated by financial gain.
therefore, print is for those who want it and can and wish to support the project.
but i know well that not everyone is able to do that.

so trust me when i tell you, you will miss nothing :)

we have aaalot of funtimes ahead


shit... this was all way too nice---- i must think of something trollish...

i'll get back to you on that one
this month was a baaad one..as you may have noticed by the sheer derailment of my schedule.

i wont go into details, but suffice to say, by this Wednesday i will clear my workload and on Thursday or Friday next update cometh....

now if you will excuse me i'm off to collapse with exhaustion
okay , so i am all but done with ravine book 2,as that is a printer priority. i have a few more days of that before i start posting new pages of sunstone


next one is more than half done, and i will try to wrap it up in the next 3 days if everything goes right.

and then once ravine is cleared, i can both spam out chapter 4 and wrap up preparations of chapter 1,2 and 3 for print...

besides all the other stuff i'm working on my schedule is just a wee bit erratic...

GOOOD! I LOVE ERRATIC!
as i'm guessing quite a few unsuspecting readers might be arriving....

basically, comic you will find in my gallery is  i guess an erotic romantic comedy... or a close approximtion of such.

chapters are placed in chapter folders

there you can read them in order, or if you prefer  a pdf, there is pdfs folder too

hope you enjoy the comic, i understand if you don't. this is not everyone's cup of tea...but then again...what is XD


also for you curious about my drawign techniques, i post my videos here. some tutorials are up already
and quite a few more  coming soon

also you can find her   gallery here
worldcosplay.net/member/29116/

anyways... here is a crazy dedicated marion cosplay, both amazing from visual cues, to the attention to details of binding used in the comic....so yeah... i was floored....and of course beautiful  framing, composition , and  use of a camera..which i cant use to save my own life... i will be perfectly honest. nothing  shows love fore the creation like a cosplay to me...it takes personal  initiative, effort and courage...and i am very much grateful.

i'll have to figure out some sort of a gift for my fan community.. prolly  something in high resolution downloadable and printable for everyone... anyhoo till then....

um...

ta-daaah!







aaand another awesome cosplay!!!

This friendship thing by LilacLace

of future out of context stuff

dont rely on it too much. while i will use most of it, there are big changes  in store for many of them.

call it a  writing experience resulting in far more powerful scenes to come. for instance instead of ally s drunken admittance of love i got something planned  that will make  yall melt... cuz im an ass like that

lets put it like this, these 4 chapters i will take great pleasure of taking you through an emotional  gauntlet...so this is gonna be fun.. for me...muahahahahha...XD


seriously.. i cant wait till i get to the end of chapter six...damn, the thing i just sketched is good!!! i love my time machine XD

Epically ironic failure...OOOOOOOHHHHH MYYYYYYYYY by Mizutanitony

okay, so  to update yall on some scheduling.

we had 2 bad months here as far as technology is concerned, bertween my wife's computer being a little primadonna and  my health being a bit iffy  my schedule ended up being stockpiled and very crowded.

i have by the end of july to submit issue 2 or ravine to printer for it's august release, alongside that there is  aphrodite 9 monthly issues to handle.

so... sunstone.

after im done with the new issue of aphrodite i will finish 2 strips, and then after san diego comic con my schedule will finally be free. from then on you will see aaaaalot more sunstone, quite frequently, and a definite announcement of book 1 print

till then i will try to drop in some cool stuff, pics and shorts just so ya know i haven't forgotten about you all XD

anyhoo back to work

wonderful cosplay
