Title: This is quite a big deal for me... XD

Today's comic page: 170
Hey everybody! Here I am again. Vacation is a blast, I don't know why I didn't do this
sooner! (Oh right, no time.) It's a bit too bad that the sun is being unreliable at best.
I really wanted to get a tan this summer, but unfortunately we've been having a lot of thunder
storms instead. Ah well, what are you going to do, right? So I've been re-acqainting myself
with my Playstation 2. I have a TON of unplayed games lying around. I'm pretty sure I won't have
enough time to play all of them during these few weeks, but I plan to give it my best
I haven't forgotten about you guys, though. I've got a new SoL page for you, two new additions
to the fan art gallery and one big piece by myself. And here's the important bit: that last piece
is spoiler art for my future comic, Amcornos. And that's not all. I have also decided to
open the Amcornos gallery.
Up until July 2009 this gallery was closed. The reason for this was that I didn't want to
create any spoilers about the comic's plot. Back when I first started Stuff of Legend in
2006, I posted a lot of art in the SoL gallery, which of course was a bit of a spoiler. I
wanted to prevent that for Amcornos, which is why that gallery remained closed for a long
time. So why did I decide to open the gallery now, even though the comic will not be
started for a long while yet? Well, first of all, people were starting to ask questions.
'What is Amcornos?' I couldn't really answer that for them, and that bugged me.
Secondly, I came to realize that ever since I started SoL, I haven't really done anything
for Amcornos, other than the stuff I made up in my mind. I hadn't been working on the plot
(it needs some major re-thinking, let me tell you), and I hadn't done any major concept
art. The arguments had always been: A) I want to get better at art before starting this
comic, and B) I am too busy with SoL or with whatever else I happen to be doing right
now. I see now that unless I make myself get serious and start doing the preparations,
this comic will never see the light of day.
And this is why this gallery is now officially opened. It's my way of forcing myself to
start doing something for Amcornos. Basically my plan of attack is now as follows:
1. Clear out to-do list, while trying not to add too much to it.
2. Start rewriting Amcornos plot (while I'm at it, I may also write down SoL's plot,
because I honestly can't keep winging it like this).
3. Start making Amcornos concept art (backgrounds, architecture and of course characters).
That's it. Sounds a lot easier than it is, though. But I have to start doing something or
I'll never have my own orginal comic, like I wanted to. Heh, okay rambling rant is over
now. Go and have fun! :)

Today's comic pages: 167-168
Compared to last week, this week was much colder. And we had tons of rain too. Is this kind
of weather even normal for this time of the year? Ah well, at least it's much easier on my
old computer. *pats computer*
Anyway, today I have two more SoL pages for you guys, as well as two sketches by yours truly
and a nice fan sketch by Niatasha. I also have a new Photoshop tutorial:
Grass tutorial, part 1. I'm
pretty proud of this thing, so be sure to check it out! Have a nice weekend.
