Switching It Up

I switched from Firefox to Chrome a few months ago. And I used an old email attributed to this blog when I made it. During the G+ fiasco, I was unable to use the Taosym pseudonym and was unable to reacquire my email. (as back when G+ came out, they deleted all google services tied to your google log in.) I had a temporary email, which I used to recreate this blog. And i've since switched this to my new email.

I'm also looking into modifying the layout of the blog overall. But that will wait till i'm finished with my current projects.

Comic Plans

I've been working the last few weeks on my comic. There's a few things I want to do and include in it that will take a bit longer than what would normally be a simple comic. And I wanted to make it a full blown comic. Rather than something small and short.

The problem.

When I initially thought of the comic a month ago, I was planning that if I had support, I wouldn't need to charge for it. People would donate if they wanted it, and I would just release a short, 8 page comic. Maybe more. But as I started working on it, streaming, putting out pictures. People who I thought were interested, weren't really that interested. In the end, I sort of want to do the content i'm comfortable with, and that I like. And if people who I was originally targeting. End up not liking what I'm doing I have to pull back and not get too attached. Or worse, frustrated or made. Or depressed or entitled.

Most of what I draw is Tera related, and if people who like Tera still want to follow me, I still want to keep drawing erotica for it (because I like it) but I don't think it's crass for me to want to make a living at it either. Lots of artists do, and I've devoted a ton of time in my life to drawing, even if what I choose to draw isn't what people generally like.

Peach Syrup, I wanted to be a full, complete comic, with a cover, and with as much content as I can pack into it, besides the actual story itself. I havn't finalized everything yet. But I hopefuly in the next few weeks I can work out a solution on how i'm going to distribute it, so that the fans who are following me, and looking at my stuff gets the comic, and I can afford to take more of my personal life and make more of them. I'd love to see that happen.

All my friends and fans have been really awesome so far, even when I don't deserve praise for what I do.

Secret Project Revealed

I talked about it a little bit on my stream a few days ago. I'm currently working on an ero comic for Tera. What it's about, and the script have been finalized. So I won't be spoiling it, or taking suggestions. Though if people like this one, I will probably ask people what they would think about a sequel, and their ideas.

Some people have seen me working on this. I won't post the full draft image yet. No matter how much I get tortured. So you will have to settle for this.

The Good News

There's not enough Tera comics out there, and there's not a lot of people who draw what I like to see. And there is no easy way for me to hop down to Comiket and sell this. Besides, most people who read my blog are fans already. So instead of selling this. I'm going to give it away. I'm not sure how i'm going distribute it (I'd prefer knowing how many people downloaded the comic) but I won't charge a dime for it when it comes out.

The only thing I ask that is that since i'm doing it completely for free, and this represents a whole lot of man hours to do. That if you can, I would appreciate a donation (through Paypal). Which I will post when the comic comes out. You getting the comic has nothing to do with whether you donated out not, it would just be very much appreciated. And potentially allow me to devote more time and effort to drawing more filthy disturbing things.

And as always you can reach me through Twitter, IRC, My Blog, and View my work on Pixiv.
