No pages but at least some news!

No pages but at least some news! published on No Comments on No pages but at least some news!

Hello my dear readers!

I’m sending you greetings from my current residence in the comics underworld!

I know, I KNOW that you would wish for some new comic pages, but that is the one thing I can’t provide at the moment.

Why?

Because I am entangled in some private comics projects (as a professional comics-artist-wannabe I am) so I am currently working on two secret comics!

The first is a coloring of a really cool comics written and inked by my comics partner Jiří Tesař which should start to be published in a local magazine in autumn.

At the second project I participate as an artist of a chapter of a graphic novel written – again by my friend Jiří Tesař. It is a wonderful project connecting several local artists and will be published in English!

Both of these projects are occupying all my comics creation time (I’m not complaining) so what I create in the meantime are some sketches for fun and practice. And that is the content I’ve been lazy to upload on my web for a long time.

So this is the news – I’m going to upload more and more new pictures

and also – I decided to merge English and Czech (my-native-language) sites together to make it easier for me to just update and upload stuff.

Expect some commotion on the site and don’t miss new pictures in the Gallery and in Fanart!!

Vacation

Vacation published on No Comments on Vacation

Hello my dear readers, I would like to announce that I am taking vacation until the end of august. Please don’t expect any new pages until then (and of course there will be no charges for the patrons on patreon). There may or may not be any pictures in the meantime. We will see.
I’ve had too much personal trouble hapenning in my life for several months and I finally decided that it’s time to oficialy have a brake.

Thank you for your patience, I love you all!

Capture

I made a lot of progress on the next comic page, but it is not done yet. The perspective has been quite troublesome, so I had to make a 3D model of the background to give me a better idea how to arrange everything. It took me almost a whole day to remind myself how to work with 3D software, but  it is definitely worth it. I’ll upload the WIP page with 3D model for patrons to see it.

The page 74 should be finished on wednesday at the latest.

News

Hello my dear readers,

I am sorry that I haven’t been active much during the last month. It is finally changing for better, so I am getting back to drawing. What happened? I had to finish some courses at university and I’ve had too much work at my part-time job, I am teaching English in the meantime and I am preparing to start another part-time job soon. To top it all, I have to deal with some health problems. Too much stuff is happening at the same time.

But I want to finish another comic page during the next weekend. In case I am not able to finish it, I will show some previews.

Thank you for reading and your patience!

Please enjoy some recent pictures:

No page this week

I am sorry sorry about the delay, but there will be no comic page this week (2.5.).  I unexpectedly decided to visit a local con Animefest and didn’t manage to finish the page. Please, enjoy a portrait of Mortifer instead!

2016-05-02

He looks a bit tired. He was maybe on a con too?

What happened since the last blog post?

Are you distracted enough? Now I can start with the bad news. Sorry, there will be no comic page this week. I am awfully busy with my school and work. But the worst should be behind me in a week and the next comic page will be on time! (And maybe the daily doodles will return too!)

Thak you for being wonderful and patient fans!

There have been two new comic pages published since the last blog post:
page_68 page_69en
And unfortunately no daily doodles. But more will follow soon!

I didn’t draw many pictures last week, because I spent most of my time trying to work on my thesis and on the comic page, but at least some pictures are here:

Faeron Khandarleii, the most famous adventurer on Kierth! (You will see him in the comics one day!)

Morti is not happy that Nyara kind of confiscated his hair.

I’m sorry, no comic page this week. At least I made this wallpaper-ish Mortifer! The high resolution image is available for my patrons on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/lysandra?ty=h

How I love this color scheme!
I usually can’t stand my own wallpapers, but this one seems to be a good one. Probably will stay on my desktop for a while, reminding me that I should draw comics!

The last week was full of school, work, consultations and other unpleasant things, so I had to make myself happy with wierd linearts and one scary Dalmayr:

It’s here – the page 65 of the Aeltarnen webcomic! The next one will be probably on Monday.  I will se how busy I’ll be with my thesis over the weekend.

And here are way too many daily doodles which I made during the last month and a half. I am quite happy with that background practice. And now I am trying to force myself to practice full-body portraits to become comfortable with them. Still quite challenging.

Comic slows down production

Comic slows down production published on No Comments on Comic slows down production

Hello my dear readers,

I am sorry that I have to announce my need to slow down the production of comic pages. I am not able to keep up the speed at the moment – I am in the middle of my exam period and I am also entering the last semester of my studies. So I need to use my free time to write a thesis and pass state exams and so on. I am really sorry about that, but making comics while working and studying is a too much demanding hobby for me at the moment.
I don’t want to put my webcomics on hiatus – I will still be working on it, but in a slower speed. I have also sacrificed the daily doodles (making it rather casual sketches). Please, wish me luck with the exams! The sooner I pass them, the sooner there will be a new comic page!

Page 62 and 63… and more drows!

Page 62 and 63… and more drows! published on No Comments on Page 62 and 63… and more drows!

Since the last blog post, these two pages have been published:
page_62 page_63

And I have one more prepared for the next monday. There will be no Alltarnen strip this week again. Sorry, too little time and too low mood for making jokes.

But (!!!) I am still making drows for that wonderful challenge called Drowcember. Serisously, if you like dark elves, look at it. It is a pleasure.
So here are the drows I have drawn since the last blog post:

There are still two more to draw, the end of the month is getting near!

Sorry, there will be no comic pages this week! My exam period started and I am now buried in my textbooks and school projects. Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to finish this week’s page and the next week page will be late too.

Please wish me luck with my exams!

Here, have some nice drows instead:

I was able to finish the next comic page – it is already visible for my patrons on Patreon. So the next update will be on time.

A strip and more OC doodles!

A strip and more OC doodles! published on No Comments on A strip and more OC doodles!

Time is always my enemy. I wasn’t able to finish another Alltarnen strip because I promised a lecture about comics at Akicon http://akicon.eu/. The lecture was about preparation of hand drawn comics into a print – scanning, cleaning, texturing, lettering and so. And I wanted to make a special strip for the demonstration. You can see the result here:

strip_enl
I’ll have another lecture about lettering tomorrow, so there may be another random strip. We will see…

And what is more important and fills me with joy – I finished the OC october! During this challenge I had to draw a different original character every day. It was quite hard and it stole my time from drawing comics, but it was definitely worthy.
Here are the characters I’ve draw during this week:

Quotation and more OC doodles!

Quotation and more OC doodles! published on No Comments on Quotation and more OC doodles!

I need to make a new blog post. The last one about my sickness was too apocalyptic. I’m not completely ok now, but I managed to finish a quotation for the third chapter and a quacking which will be published tomorrow. (On regular Monday.)

ch3_cit
I really like this page. If you compare it with the previous quotations, you can see my improvement. Yay! It seems great.

This month I am still working on that challenge – OC october. (You have to draw every day one original character you made.) I decided to rather draw character I have played in many RP campaigns – those I played too many times or those I haven’t drawn yet. My other original characters already have  enough space in my comics.

Well, the last week I finished these:
iaron richard arthaj upirka faerlin crispin drow
Six more to draw! Phew.

 

Big pile of news

Big pile of news published on No Comments on Big pile of news

I haven’t written any news article for a while. Many things have happened – my school started again, my websites were infected by some kind of spam, so I had to delete everything and to build them again. That slowed my drawing a lot. I still haven’t recovered everything, but the most important sites are running. And now I am ill.

So what is new? Since last blog article, I finished the second chapter and started the third:

ch2_page_57 ch3_c

I also made two new strips of that parody Alltarnen:
ALLTARNEN_2 ALLTARNEN_3

And I am still participating in the OC October.  (A challenge in which you have to draw a different original character every day.) This challenge is killing me. But here are my results up to date:

I decided to join OC-tober – a challenge where you are supposed to draw a different OC you created every day of the month.  I don’t usually do challenges, but this one is perfect.

So for the day 1 – here is my first OC ever:

Finally some news. The last blog article I wrote was published about a month ago. What happened in the meantime?
Quite a lot! Some pleasant creative stuff and some unpleasant personal things. I was too exhausted to write a blog, but finally here it is.

So what happened? I had to leave my daily job (to be able to take care of my family members after some surgeries) and become an externe. The good point is that I will have more time for studying and drawing comics. At least I hope so. The bad point is that I lost my regular income. So if you love my webcomic, this would be the best time to support me on patreon: https://www.patreon.com/lysandra?ty=h

I spent last month drawing, travelling, partially moving back to my family, and taking care of my eighteen years old cat who unfortunately died in the end. It wasn’t a happy month. I hope that future will be a bit brighter.

Now the creative stuff:  I finished drawing the second chapter of the story – The Bandits. I’ve published five pages since the last blog and there are two more to go in the next weeks. Then we will proceed to the next chapter.

These are the new pages:

Expect two more! Then we will start the next chapter (oh, how much I love the next one!) and another surprise…. story. Whatever that thing is. The surprise thing will come probably on friday. You will see. It can’t be missed.
Or you can already see both of it on my patreon. https://www.patreon.com/lysandra?ty=h

As you can see, I decided to return to the standard page format. So expect regular page size or double size.

And with a huge help of my friends, I uploaded most of my daily doodles archive on the web. It can be seen here:  http://aeltarnen.com/dailies/

My daily doodles could be also followed on tumblr as well as the webcomic.

The ghostly lover comes to let the pain
remind you of your mistress’s life ended in vain.

Having fallen in love with a human woman, Denzealiss tried to give her an eternal life through giving her half of his elven ageless soul. Unfortunatelly, she died and stayed attached to his soul, invisible for everyone else. Ever since that she begged him to commit suicide to let them both go to the other world. Didn´t he promise her that he will stay with her in life and death?
