Holiday and plans

Holiday and plans


I guess people usually speak of "holiday plans" but this is really "holiday and plans". I am not 'as such' going on a holiday, but the next week is going to be different in such way that I have even less time to work on artwork than last week.

So, to just let you know, I am working on a Kelsey page (which I may or may not finish today?) and then it's going to be a bit quiet for a bit. 

That brings me to the 'plans' part. After this 'holiday' (from dA point of view) I am definitely going to bring more themes and slices into the Wheel of (Mis)Fortune game. (I saw from the poll that most votes went to that (19 WoM vs. 12 comic pages at this point in time) and it was the plan to add more content into that game over time in the first place!)

I'm also sliding attention back to comic pages and artwork again (actually, if you add up the requests for comic pages and stand-alone images, it is 21 which tops WoM content slightly). I am not doing this because of the poll results, but mainly because I myself want to shift focus back to 'real' drawing rather than 'mechanical constructing' again (which the art in WoM requires). The poll results are used mainly for that; polling how the audience is feeling and monitoring a little if what I want myself is actually 'on track' of what the watchers like to see... and how well. With everything being pretty balanced that way, I see this is probably going to work out quite well compared to what you all like to see.

Or most of you, anyway. KX is not getting new attention right now, but that one works a little like a storm: Sometimes it picks up and is quite powerful, and then it dies down again. When I have inspiration and desire to bring more KX material, don't worry, I will! And that can happen suddenly and unexpectedly (also from my point of view, because it is highly depending on what my own motivation and inspiration level is towards that one).

So, maybe I'm moving the balance towards 'fifty-fifty', spending about as much time on artwork as WoM... give or take, and depending on how I feel at the time of working on it. But this is going to change, because the primary plan for WoM is to insert the still planned themes and reach the 36-slice-milestone, after which you will see a slow-down on that front. I can still expand the game with more slices at that point, but it is most likely that I will start to do so much more infrequently and it could be one or two animations at a time. There's the 'cut off' time where I take my hands off the project, basically, and only add a slice or two now and then if and when the inspiration and motivation strike. Either way, you're still going to see much more in the near future.

Okay. So... going to see about that comic page. I can't promise it for today (and in the next week I may still have a bit of time here and there to finish it up if that's needed) but you'll start to see more from me after about 2 weeks then. (yes, I'm "away-ish" for one week, but to make a WoM update takes a week, too, so you won't see much of anything for roughly 2 weeks).

Take care!

I don't really understand what you're trying to ask...

If you want to purchase a code card, yes, that is done with dA points. You should have a 'Purchase' button on the dA page where you find a deviation with purchasable content (although if you don't have a premium dA account, that button may not be there?)

The amount of points needed is shown on the button.

Hey hun,

I had a question. In order to purchase something, do you have to have a premium membership? I cannot find the purchase thing anywhere, and the only add I see leads me to premium membership =/

No, you don't need a premium membership. There's a link in the description (under the heading of Purchasing the code, or something) where you can find more info. Please read that part of the description carefully, there's also something about layouts, browsers, commercials hiding stuff, etc.)

All I see is an ad (which I have to get premium to remove it), In Favourites, and then download. =/ I've tried to different browsers but I still see the same thing, and I've tried zooming in and out. *sighs* I trust you that it's there; I just don't know how to get to it. I've ready read the information that says how and nothing seems to be working.

Hm, could you please make a screenshot of that and upload it to sta.sh, then give me the link? I have never seen this myself (maybe because I do have a premium membership). Don't know what it looks like. Just so I can see for myself, and to check that you're really looking at the right place.

Other people have mentioned such before, but as far as I am aware, they have found a way around it (by using a different browser or rescaling the browser's window...
