As I let on in my last journal before leaving for Comiccon Montreal, I've gone through an extremely rough patch. Some of the worst times in my life. I came very close to deleting all my online accounts permanently. And as much as I'd love to dive headlong into explaining the causes of it all, I simply can't.

That said, this isn't meant to be a pessimistic journal! No sir-ee! You see, while at Comiccon, I became conscious of a few things. One of them being that there's life outside my office (I know this is silly, but I've been cooped up in here for 2 years plugging away at gender bender) And the other one is that this rough patch I just went through isn't the end. There's more out there, more beyond. And that's what I'm writing about.

At comiccon I met loads of fantastic people. Game devs both AAA and indie, writers once again both AAA and indie, and loads of fantastic artists. And it was absolutely liberating. To see the breadth of content being worked on, the various styles, just... all of it. It was incredible. I even picked up a pile of books including a few I can't even read since they're not in English. When I got back from Comiccon I had the intent of deleting all these accounts, but not to vanish. To start over under a new alias. And I came extremely close to doing just that. But calmer heads prevailed. I've decided to stick with DKDevil. I've been using the name for over 8 years and honestly, I don't want to abandon it.

So I'm only a few days out from finishing all the art for Gender Bender DNA Twister Extreme and I have a plan. As soon as my work is done on GBDNATE I'm going on a 2 month quasi-hiatus to improve my art. I've got loads of books, I've got live model drawing sessions starting up in September and I've been invited to an artist circle. Some of the art I've been doing on the side feels like such a step up from what I've got on here that I just want to keep pushing in that direction and the guys from the artist circle have been nothing short of insanely supportive and helpful. It's a new environment where I'm literally the runt of the litter, the one in most need of improvement, and instead of looking down on me like people do in so many environments, they're helping me out and giving me pointers. It's seriously intense and awesome.

So uhh... yeah, next Saturday's GBDNATE update post will probably (possibly?) be the last one I post. After that we're looking at periodic, artless(cept maybe screenshots) progress updates posted to indiegogo by Lach when anything important happens (character releases, major updates, etc).

Anyhow, yeah, free soon! :D

I originally wanted to cover more ground with this post but decided to cut down a bit.

I am officially disbanding the GBDNATE chatroom. The room will exist as long as people go to it, but I will no longer be present.

This past month has officially been one of the hardest times of my life and I really need to distance myself from it all. I need time to rethink my goals and my art. If you like any of the art in my gallery I would recommend you make backups as I really am unsure of what I plan to do. All of the Gender Bender Updates will be in the final version of the game in the art gallery though so no need to worry about those.

-----Montreal Comiccon-----

I'm leaving to spend the weekend in Montreal. Not going to have any access to the internet, and as such there will be no weekly update this week. It'll be very nice to get away from all this for a while. There are a lot of panels I want to go to this year and some friends of mine have tables in artist alley. 

-----Gender Bender DNA Twister Extreme-----

As I said earlier, there will be no weekly update this week, at least not in the usual format. But I do feel I need to update you guys on progress. Most of the art assets for the final 3 routes of the game are done. this includes a handful of new characters, new forms, new outfits, some updates to some of the older designs as well as all of the backgrounds. All that remains are facial expressions and the CGs. I have no idea how long it will take Lach to write them and put them together.

So I'm just about to leave for Montreal. wont be checking back in until Sunday night. You all take care!
