My half of an art trade with Wooooooood over on DA.
We decided to do superhero cosplays. I went a little overboard because I got into a groove. XD

Going to work on sharing artwork here just so y’all know I’m not dead.
Between work, school, and my back, I don’t have a ton of time for drawing. I have to be sure I do well at school since my job pays for 2 classes per semester. So drawing is a bit on the back burner. Besides, I’ve been a little tapped out creatively lately. The updates coming will be of work I’ve done so far this year.
I still want to comic… I just need a story worth drawing that is worth reading. 🙂
I must apologize. I did not know that there was an error on the site. And from my best guesses it was down for 4-7 days. It was up last Friday because the comic was posted and my Twitter auto-tweeted it then. But this morning I realized there was no tweet associated with today’s update and low and behold, a php file in a plugin took a dump and killed everything. I resolved the matter as quickly as I could.
Sadly, no one had mentioned it to me that the site was down. I avoid visiting the site to keep analytics as true as possible, so I didn’t notice either.
Anyways, I’ll keep posting the ChoGin comics for a bit, then art otherwise. I don’t know when or if I will resume any personal comic projects. It kills me to not be doing it, and in a way it’s also a relief. I hate feeling so conflicted. LOL
Also, here is something I worked on this week. It was posted to tumblr on Wednesday.
Thinking of trying to setup a Patreon. Just trying to think what to offer as milestones, etc. Plus what to write in the first place – ideas?
The comic of course would still be free, the regular weekly updates. I would offer BONUS material/content. Like I would do an extra update for every X amount of dollars each month, up to 4 extras for twice a week. FOR EXAMPLE – for $300 a month, 2 extra updates on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month. For $600 4 extra updates for each Tuesday. If X amount was donated there would be no ads on the site for that month. Etc. Etc. Since I still have a regular job, I can’t do too much for extra updates.
Individual rewards would probably be like if you donate $10 a month, I’ll do a sketch for you. For those that donate X amount, I’d show the sketch files and storyboards. Maybe first dibs on extra art viewing or exclusive art stuff.
I know I’m dependable as I have always had something up for y’all on Fridays and I have no further intentions of hiatuses.
So… thoughts on milestone rewards one might be motivated for? Without reader feedback I won’t know what to offer y’all. Any input greatly appreciated. Thanks bunches! ^^
Starting this week I will be introducing the characters of the new comic. The comic itself begins this Friday, January 31st. 2014 and will update weekly to start.
I’d really like to update twice a week, but right now I am starting slow. I’m a little out of practice. XD
Now that the hardest part is out of the way… I expect you can see your first Ginpu comic of the year up and running starting…
JANUARY 31st!! WITNESS MY (not so) TRIUMPHANT RETURN!!!
(snazzy header, no? yeah I didn’t think so either.)
