I'm close to finishing Chapter 6 and in the next 2 pages coming up I will finally get to draw the winning dress from the contest. After Chapter 6 I am debating if I should start Chapter 7 or start on the other Holiday-related story I wrote. The first Holiday one was the Valentine's Day one with Eros. Note: The holiday stories are not on the same timeline as the chapters, those do not go in any order.
The only story I am really excited to draw soon, is going to require A LOT of you guy's Original Characters (OC's) to be drawn in there. So when the time comes for that one I will ask your permission to use some of your OC's in the comic. ;D that will be in the near future.
I'm also considering another contest here, and I promise the next one will be more organized.
An ex-coworker of mine from back in the days that I worked in Animation has started his own books on Day of the Dead. Check them out! They are super adorable and the art is really cool.
Book of Life (I'm sure I may have mentioned this before...?)
I am excited for this! It's an upcoming animated film by ReelFX. I am not familiar with the company's work, it seems like they do a lot of commercials. The released date is October 17th 2014.
”..Book of Life hails from Fox Animation and Reel FX Animation Studios (which previously made Free Birds). Guillermo del Toro is one of the producers of the feature, which is set on the Mexican holiday the Day of the Dead and tells of a young man named Manolo who is torn between what he wants to do (play guitar and win the heart of the girl of his dreams) and what his family wants him to do. He ends up traveling across three different worlds to find himself…”
I think Disney has a Day of the Dead related story as well that they're working on, last time I heard anything about it everyone was angry because Disney wanted to trademark a religious holiday. LOL People with money can be pretty dumb most of the time.
