As some of my watchers know, I use to work on a webcomic with my husband (then boyfriend) on DrunkDuck called Mercs. It ran for about 100 pages before I just couldn't stand the awful art I was putting out at the time, and eventually the comic went into indefinite hiatus. All the art I've been doing since then has been to practice and become more skilled in my drawing technique, and I'm finally to the point where I'm willing to give it another go.

The first step in this process? Draw all the character references... all 50+ of them. It might take some time, but that's more time to practice! All of my energy and free time from this point on is going to be focused on this project, as we've decided to try and get at least one character drawn a week while my husband works on the lore and the history for the world of Mercs. By the end of it, we'll be working on actual Mercs pages again! I'm very excited this, and can't wait to dive back into webcomic design.

In Other News

I love art trades! I've been craving them for awhile now, and I'd like to take a few to work on in-between Mercs characters. Interested? Feel free to comment on this journal or shoot me a private message.

I apologize deeply for the long wait, I didn't mean for everything to spiral out
