A site I like and some updates on me

Hey, y'all.  Sorry it's been a while (to anyone out there actually waiting to see stuff from me, if any).  I've been doing a lot of digital clean-up on my computer.  I was down to about 100 MB on my computer's hard drive, and I couldn't really go further on some of my stuff until I cleared enough space!  It took me almost two whole weeks to do, from all the searching and sorting and organizing through over 650 GB worth of junk between my computer's 150GB HDD and my external 500GB MyBook HDD, and it was tougher than I thought it'd be, but I managed to clear over 20GB!  I just burned a lot of crap onto double-layered DVD+R discs and now I can finally get back to finishing my first sharetorial video soon and just save some more work in general.

Anyways, that's what I've been doing.  I don't like to make definite plans, as I can never seem to keep them, but I will say that I plan to show more of what I'm working on this week.  I've been a busy guy, but delightfully so!  Last week I finished an overall story for a game, and I actually like it!  It's an indie dev game, an RPG of Japanese style, and as soon as I get some actual character concepts down in illustration form, I'll share it.  It's a relatively small project to start my other projects, and I plan to invite other developers to help me develop it!  What fun!  But I'm still working on my webcomic Kung Fu Space Cowboy as well, as now I'm fighting with a change in both story and art direction, so now I'm back to square one!  While I want to keep a comedic element to the story, I also want to keep an action element to the story, too, so that it's hilarious half the time, and awesome the other half of the time.  I want people to look at the webcomic and laugh at the ridiculous title, but also say, "Hey, KFSC kicks serious butt!"  I dropped the love-story element.  I was originally going to include, so now the plot has kinda changed and my vision of the art style with it.

While I'm here, I just want to give a little attention to a site that perhaps some manga art lovers like me would like to visit.  The website site is called Dreamchaser, and it's by a professional manga artist named Marlon currently living in Japan (if I'm not mistaken), though originally from the Netherlands.  She's very good, and I like her style (she illustrates in many styles).  I got wind of her work through her YouTube videos under her name bluemonika, as she makes (relaxing) videos where you can watch her draw.  I'm pretty sure sje has a deviantART account as well.  Anyways, I like to promote other people that I like, like I did Feng Zhu and his YouTube videos a while back, so check her out sometimes.

Well, that's all for the moment.  Keep exploring!
