How I write: Nyx+Nyssa in October 2018

H

First things first: this is not a how to write. Neither is it a guranteed good way to do it, perhaps not even for me. Nope, this is just how I write my comic, right now in late 2018. After a phase of seriously overthinking things, I decided to keep my process as simple as possible. Right now...

Backup systems and their fallibility

B

So, my backup system, this Monday it failed. Originally I was pretty proud of it, especially since I was working on multiple machines. I have an icloud folder setup on which I work – save directly to cloud – and another one in which I archive finished work. I was traveling a lot and...

Sketch of a grumpy Nyx

For the picture above, i took a work in progress and added enough to work as a daily art. I miss doing more complex work.  It’s probably time to finish the daily arts and look for another art project to do until the comic is good to go. But I want this streak to go to fifty first. Fifty is a...

Daily Art 05.03. – 11.03.2018

Of all the influences to pop up in my art, I really did not expect to see Dragonball Z to pop up. Oh well, it had some serious great grumpy faces, gotta admit that. And tiny me though DB was the best thing ever. You can see how the next week is shaping up in real time with individual commentary...
