Been working on my artstyle a bit because being unhappy with it is generally what makes it hard for me to work, so I took a step back and took the time to learn and practice.
Anyway I did a full head rotation and up and down view to kind of get a better understanding of the layouts of a face and head (Only just fuckin learned that the nose goes above the jaw line, shit you learn after years of drawing)
Also did this so I could figure out hair for characters like Krono, cause I generally like having the hair stay the same shape and to point to where the character is looking, even if that isn't accurate to how it should be. Problem was I had no idea how to draw his hair from certain angles, so this helped me figure it out and also figure out when exactly to flip its direction.
Sorry if this was a bit of a rant, but just wanted to explain wtf I was actually doing. It's been a bit hard to feel motivated these passed couple months, this whole year honestly. The fact that I probably could have had the chapter 0 of Atrona done by this time if I really cracked down on myself, but I've only gotten 6 pages done has only made it harder.
But I'm doing good, and I'm feeling ok for however long that lasts. Really the only thing I'm worried about is how awkward the next page will look where midway through there'll be a jump in quality lol.
Anyway here's the head rotations, wasn't going to post them anywhere official so this is the best I can do. Some angles with the hair looks a bit odd, but after days of constantly redoing work I felt this is what looked the best in an artstyle context. Besides in fast paced animation and still frames it shouldn't be too noticeable.

So I went back and edited the links to each page to make it less clunky. I also finally linked them to the main Webmancer site/Chapter select because at this point it's on the same quality as its version hosted on Tumblr. Now when you select a chapter of the comic it will give you the option to choose to send you to Tumblr or Newgrounds.
I also went back and changed all the page ratings to T, because even if the specific page doesn't contain material labeled under T, that is still the accurate rating for the comic as a whole.
As a side note I am slowly getting back into working on art, just finishing up some personal commissions from some friends at the moment. New pages of Atrona Robota will be coming out, as well as some other projects, so I look forward to that. :>

So I've been gone awhile, I've been dealing with a lot and honestly just didn't want to post anything I made out of insecurity. Blah blah blah that's not what we're hear to talk about, point is I've still been drawing a lot.
I've mostly been doing a ton of stuff for my wifes dnd game, which only her and our friends have seen. Aside from digital art, I've also been experimenting with making 2d minis and custom spell cards, and other crappy craft stuff that I won't really post.
I've made a ton of digital art too but most of it probably won't see the light of day because they're lower quality than I should post or I personally don't want to. The stuff I do post still won't be fantastic, but it's there and I had fun with it, I'll post if over a series of a couple days cause there's a lot.

Atrona Robota can now be viewed how intended both on newgrounds and tumblr now instead of just the latter! I was worried of it lowering the quality or slowing things down because i had some trouble with it at first, but now the pages are fully animated. So I hope people will be able to enjoy the comic more now without having to jump through hoops :>

It's been hard working on the comic while i'm so unhappy with my art, but at this point i know it's really unrealistic to try to make it perfect or redo things before working on it. So hopefully over time of doing the comic I'll improve, I wanna stop letting my insecurities hold me back.
Now excuse me while I figure out how mirrors fuckin work

First 3 (more like 2 but ye) pages of Atrona Robota are out!
I’m super excited to finally start this so I hope you all enjoy.
I will be posting it on newgrounds but the intended reading experience is here, the main difference is it's animated :0

Welp, got this far but now, there’s no going back. With Decie’s design finished the rest of the ref sheets I have to do will be much more under wraps and private. Just a few background characters as well as VERY important characters, and once they’ve been drawn up me and Riddles will be ready to storyboard. Things feel like they’re picking up.

I think i'm going to stop shading my ref sheets from here on out, i did it as practice at first but now that i've learned it's just become a bit of an unneeded chore, considering most of it is not even seen. The comic of course is going to be higher quality, but i really need to actually get these done so i can start work on the comic itself. I really hope this doesn't sound lazy but yeah, prep work has gotten a bit repetitive and i just wanna make it a bit more efficient.
