Some updates about my gallery and some news about Gender Bender 3…
I think it was noticeable that I finally enabled full SSL support on my website. Since there’s no login or other places, where you submit sensitive data like passwords or usernames anymore, it doesn’t have really much purpose at all, except for me as admin. But it’s common nowadays and you got a better feel while browsing blah blah… so here we go… Also I updated several thumbnails which matching much better to the new website design. Unfortunately I had to create those thumbs manually for every single picture so that took a while… But after all it’s good feel that the server owner cares about security at all – so it’s still a huge difference between Jabarchives and that old crappy WWOEC servers.
The other thing I want to mention it is that I decided to not upload undone sketches anymore or previews on my gallery. Paheal and the net gets flooded (it’s more a a little creek) with colored or altered versions of undone pictures from me which is on the other side very cool that people likes my output that much, but on the other side its also takes away the surprising effect ( is that a real word anyway?) and makes browsing through my stuff confusing. I will definitely color all my pictures I posed previously but It takes time. So from now on there’s no preview section anymore. I will release upcoming pictures directly and fully colored only (Except scraps). I will post more recently WIPs on my Twitter so take a look on it.
Now Gender Bender 3 I know, I know… It’s almost vaporware… All I can say it was my fault to announce it so early and making an cover in advance for it already but I get overwhelmed by the positive response from this upcoming project. One thing you have to understand: I will definitely will do this comic. But Gender Bender 3 will be the biggest comic so far in the whole series and that means almost 60 Pages but with more panels on it. It will be splitted up in 5 chapters which are – of course – directly connected to each other. Some people think creating such comics is easy. Of course that drawing part is fun but the coloring, paneling and the other stuff takes veeery much time. Time I sometimes don’t have at all. I will start to continue on the first 2 pages as soon my own private coloring queue is processed. Please note that I’m not a full time artist – I also don’t want to be one – I doing that in my free time besides job and private stuff. I don’t know how other artists can handle that while releasing five or six pictures in a week. I don’t want to sit the whole time on my ass drawing stuff. So there’s really no need to nagging every week asking me when its coming out… In the words of 3DRealms: It’s done when it’s done! At least you don’t have to wait 14 years to finish it. Just give me time – It’s not that easy as it looks like 🙂
