we'll take a brief pause on Bitter/Sweet #4, because i've got an assignment. i'm doing a fun little "scarie tale" for Bambalyna...th
ahhh, yes, #4....this means we're a quarter of the way through. that's pretty fucked up.
so it's finally time to introduce Calico. i know it's a little late to bring in such an important character, but jesus, i haven't found an opening for him yet.
i've got some friggin' beautiful ideas for Skyler's funeral. not only that, but we're gonna get to see Sweet kick some ass. not to mention see the God of Darkness for the FIRST time. it's about god-damn time.
this is my big test with Frank...to see if i can make him into an extraordinary character. he's already good...interes
#3's done and it's long as hell. we'll see what we can do.
couple good breakthroughs on #3, i believe i'm now about 3/4 of the way through it. yay, a sweet subplot. not only is it sweet, but it's about sweet. she really needed some more focus. after all, the title is Bitter/Sweet. i'm very happy to have enlisted (hopefully) a couple more artists. but i need more! anyone who's got a spare moment, an opening for a free portrait, whatever, it'll be going in a proposal, so anything you do for me will be circulated, and of course you'd get full credit for your work. ta da!
yeah....let's tack on another two artists to that list i'm referring to down there. they're dropping like flies! someone come save me.
AAAGGH! what is it about artists that make them the flakiest people on earth? ok, so maybe flakiest isn't a word....and i'm generalizing. it's just very frustrating. hmm..let's see.....how many artists have i gone through since i started this story? at least a dozen. it's ridiculous. yes, i AM very forward about my project. i like to talk about it, get people interested, and there's nothing greater than to see my creation realized through an artist's interpretation
in heaven, Vinos has a pot belly because his ectoplasmic representation
#3 is coming along. Still in the outline stage, but it's getting better. Sweet, the Goddess of Love....she is a very tough character. I'm trying my best to pull her out more, so that she's less of a supporting character. She's the only one of the main characters that I really haven't focused on at all (Steve and Frank, the two cops have gotten plenty of screen time, Johnny is probably a close second and Bitter at least has his own subplot). I really like her too, I just have trouble getting inside her head. The same is true for all of the gods, but mostly the female ones. Oh well, keep plugging away. Once again, if anyone wants to take a look, feel free to ask.
number 2's done too, and it is so very very sweet. anyone who wants to take a gander should just ask. i'm a huge believer in workshopping and feedback.
anyway, number 3 is in the works, and it isn't going as smoothly as the first two, because i'm trying to work on characters that need some attention. it'll come out though.
