S:da - Round Two INCOMPLETE. by Endling S:da - Round Two INCOMPLETE. by Endling
A huge job has fallen into my lap.

I don't know how many folks know this but I'm freelance. Which might explain my erratic updating schedule both on here and at Snafu, given the push and pull of dry spells and crunch periods.

As stated, a very important job has come my way. As such, I have to make some sacrifices in order to maintain a semblance of a schedule/sanity. (And keep my hands from crumbling.)

The workload would simply be too much.

My first round entry suffered as a result of this, Everafter missed another update after I said I'd prioritize it, everything is dwindling a little because I'm spreading myself too thin.

And with this job being as important as it is.. I have to cut out the luxuries, at least until I'm able to dip back into them.

The way I see it:

The big job (current goal) > Everafter updates (long term goal)> Fun stuff like this. Unfortunately.

This scrap shows the work I'd completed, and the scribbly thumbnails as well as dialogue and explanations of where it was going to go, as I want to make it readily known I'd intended to take this all the way to the end.

But I got surprised. Unfortunately I can't tell when these things are going to come in. So I have to be mature, listen to reason and bow out.

As it states in the bottom of the deviation, I'd like to extend my apologies to the folks in the competition who were looking forward to challenging me, particularly my current opponent *RoninsUltramix. Sorry man. Though looking at your preliminary pages, you probably woulda ousted me anyway. :) Good luck and have fun.

Oh, and to my Death Squad? (You know who you are.) Mission accomplished. ;)

its was awesome anyways :la:
Kai-suke Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2009
I forgot what I originally wanted to say, but this has provided me with a fascinating insight in regards to your process.

So far, all of my attempts at comicing can only be called thumbnails, because of the low quality, and time spent on them. I realize that I am not very focused, but haven't bothered to focus on focusing on what I want to do with my art. If I spend more time, I may eventually climb to tiers near you and others.

Please gain +5 ego in knowiung that you have helped me get closer to a goal of making a comic of my own.

i have a question what version of photoshop or watever program you use do you have? and how do you get your pencil lines not mixed up with the grey coloring?
Evil-Stan Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2008
Oh how the mighty have fallen.
Yin-YangShadowDragon Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2008

What kind of pallet do you have?
Penguin-Factory Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2008
"My saw will pierce teh heavenz!"

I almost die laughing at that, mainly because it's so incredebly out of character for Red XD
admf Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2007

Man, I'm really sad to see this one hitting a brick wall. But fantastic all the same!

I'm secretly hoping there'll be another opporunity for the sins to kick some ass :) It's such a great and fun concept for a character cast.

But jeez man, you're not kidding when you talk about spreading yourself too thin. Don't go busting those hands up, unless... you could have some kind of SUPERAWESOMEPOWERHANDS created to replace them. In which case, go! Go!
brianchi Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2007
Hope you complete it soon!!!
I'm praying you win, however I fear that your opponent might be a little tough.

Just wondering, what happens to the Sins if one or all of them died?

Oh well, see the bright side: at least you'll gain money in that job, right?
cailencrow Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007
While it really sucks that ya had to back out, it makes sense. Ya gotta prioritize. Good luck tho, with your current stuff.
Mekaka Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007
I enjoyed the unfinished bits... it gave a sense of humor, that was already there but still. Great drawings for the second half. They're so, what the word?? Artistic??
Great work anyway. Can't wait until Envy fights.
NintendoBrattU Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2007
Aaawwww! If only you didn't have so much on your shoulders, then you could've finished your entry! I was lookin forward to seeing Wrath and Lust fight!
DIchigo Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2007  Student Traditional Artist

gl with your new big gig, and i look forward to EA whenever it updates
ZackDaFallenSeraph Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2007
Sad that you're leaving, but hey, gotta eat right? Incidentially, I've noticed the use of the Latin for the Sins; nice touch.

KRAKAPTOOM looks better >:3
Blackbunnypnk Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2007
I just can't whait to see the full ver. !!!!!
ZombieBunnyPro Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2007

And be intelligent.

The full "ver." - by which I assume you meant "version" - will never come. He's posting the incomplete "ver." because he doesn't have the free time to finish it.

Read the artist's comments.

You douche.
Blackbunnypnk Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2007

thanks for the advice...:boing::boing::boing::boing:

paperclipqueen32 Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2007
I know that you needed this completed for the Survivor contest, but I actually enjoyed seeing your completed panels and the ones still just storyboard. It's interesting to see a little of how you work.
Rikyo Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Aw dude. I didnt realize you forfeited!! I gotta start watching your scraps. Well lets hope you have time to win one of these OC battles one of these days :)

plus you and *thejohnsondesign are out now and i wanted to see you guys give it a go

But i totally understand...things that pay are definitely more important.
Ravensfeld Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Believe me, I know that feeling of Dry spells vs. Crunch time all too well. Its not a pleasant one, but it does pay the bills. Always been a fan of your work, and I'll always continue to be. :nod:

Aw, that's a shame, the work you've produced so far is nothing short of superb. Employment is always good to have though.
