After that silly journal I posted yesterday, I'm finally relieved to say that all is not lost. I've regained control of my scanner, and most importantly, my PC.
I've just uploaded my 33rd page of the Firecaster saga (wow, dare I use that term). I enjoy drawing these new characters I'm introducing you and the way I'm converting my (so far) fifteen-chapter novel into graphic format.
Come to think of it, it is an enjoyable experience for me. It's fun to see how I've described the scenes in words, take form in lines and shades - the characters, their dialogues, the environment.
I know, not everyone digs it.
Self fulfillment - that is all I need right now. And thank you for your kind comments. They make me want to be a better artist.
