Hello there!

Long time no update here, and postings have been few and far between! It's been one heckuva year. Lessee. So, after hopping over to Texas to bridesmaid for my 7th-grade, tragically-moved-away BFF in March, I get back and my laptop dies, so that was about a month of working on loaners and making do; there was that crowdfunded Rues de Lyon/Queen of the Linden Trees 10-page one-shot history comic what I was advertizing here in my previous Journal, done in traditional inkwash whee; and of course, work on volume 3 of Alyssa, my main contracted work for big French publisher Soleil/Delcourt (they're poised for a massive flooding of the US digital comics market with translated works soon....), which all the aforementioned kinda disrupted and delayed.... well that and having to draw detailed panels of famous London landmarks, since this album involves a school trip across the Channel. EURGH.  Anyway, so. June-July were heatwave and tunnel-vision single-minded work on finishing the album within waving distance of the original deadline, much stress and little sleep. And just after wearily getting my finalized files uploaded I was rushing off on a family holiday to motherlovin' CHINA, package-tour seeing the sights and all. Which was lovely and unfamiliar and enchanting and exhausting.
But I am back, and I am done with final push madness! And I shall upload plenty of samples of those works - Alyssa 3 is full of geeky easter eggs. :) And yes, time now for all long-neglected personal projects and some fandom stuff...

(wee blurb in French for the "coming soon" new album:… )

Thanks for hanging in there!
Also, I am getting notifications from people citing me in their answers to the devart Questionnaire as a fave or someone they'd like to meet and y'all are sweet sweet-potato dumplings. :heart:

Hoping delays are due to positive intrusion of real life for you!

You know...with the number of Guy-likes-girl-but-girl-rebuffs-him (or is clueless), lost love, unrequited love themed characters in GND...I'm wondering if Snape is going to show up at some point...
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2015  Professional General Artist
Point... ish. OTOH Lily Potter is kinda ... well, she spends more time being a motivator/important by her death, than alive on-screen as a character, so I'm not sure she gets a post-canon Building ressucitation, y'know? AsheRhyder went into a bit more detail on that theme.
Snape may cameo yet but I've no inclination to add him to the main roster, nor as a sympathetic lovelorn stalker-suitor.

Makes sense. 

To be honest, despite his fixation on Lily, he strikes me as the least likely to stalk her at this point even if they were in your story.  He seems to have in the books allowed his self loathing to convince him he wouldn't have deserved her in the end anyways.  So he probably would have been the snarky voice of reason "I can't force her to love me, so I won't try" sort of guy that just bums people out by loving her from afar while hating her husband XD.  I mean, he was a wizard in canon who knew and practiced a ton of dark spells and yet it seems he never once considered using magic to force Lily  to love him, so he seemed pretty set from the get go on the idea that she would never be his (It sounded like his expectations for her when first asking Dumbledore to save her was less dark magic forcing love and more "I'm all she's got, so maybe without James she would grow to love me).

So yeah, he  makes a good self pity type, but a pretty bad stalker considering he stopped thinking she would love him long ago XD

Fair points. Thing is, regardless of the fact he has been "rewarded" with a new love interest, here in GND Erik had kinda reached that point of fatalistic glum acceptance that he wasn't going to be getting the girl, and Jareth reacted verrry poorly to the notion.

And... I know we're dealing with non-Good characters and I may be a mite hypocritical because i do dabble in such tropes with the Goblin King, but dang, getting cookies for "coulda love potion'd his unwilling love interest but didn't!" is.... underwhelming a moral accomplishment.

If you started a patreon for more frequent GND updates I'd pay up. It'd probably be the only patreon I'd pay to x_x I'm going through withdrawal here

Not quite so long now.
SanzosKitten Featured By Owner Edited Jun 29, 2015
I'm going to second this. I know with the color being added right now I'd also be willing to pay up to a second patreon for that artist for while that's going too.
