It's heeeeeeeerrrrrrrreeeeee! :squee:

That's right folks!

MEGABRAIN COMICS Promotional Video for the launch for AMERICAN DARK AGE is ONLINE! Watch it on YouTube here:…

Holy jumpin jeezus. making this video was a rollercoaster of.... something. It was like me on a overactive PMSing overload.

I went from "ooooh and ahhh" to "grrrrrrr" to "hahahaha"to "weeeeee"  then to " OMFG I want to murder this thing! Jac SMASH!!" and to finally "YAHOOO!!!"

I started on Wednesday and finished this baby on friday...(although trying to UPLOAD it all freakin day.) So pretty much 48 hours. Not bad I say.
Considering this was my VERY first time using ADOBE After Effects. I used a similar program in school: Final Cut Pro... but VERY different from AE so this was quite the learning experience for me. I DID spend a whole day before watching tutorials online and making notes.

Needless to say, my boss wants to name his next child after me: I think I donz goodz.
Megabrain seal of approval!

SO! Gonna take the day off and do Jac stuff. Swimming. Shopping.... DRAWING, then throw myself back on the Shit-to-do list. Such as inking DarkuAngel's next commission page, colouring and getting some other comic book conception characters done and FRICK: I have a costume to design for another person who has paid quite a fair bit.... AND original sketches to finish for the ADA Pledge prizes. Holy cheese and crackers. I'm gonna be busy.

But I like busy.


Keeps me away from family drama, and yet closer to my friends. Like my best friend: Who just suggested that I should find a man the same way I like my coffee.
Nutty and delicious.

And people wonder how KAT from my comic book The ELEMENTS is inspired by her.



8 Days to go! We are currently at$3,202.00! Pledge and get your own copy of AMERICAN DARK AGE!!! Pledge here:…

I had this journal sitting in my messages until now and thankfully I did or I would have never saw the fantastic epicness of your comic coming to life. I am soo happy and proud that you were able to get your comic going and even more proud when seeing the promo video.

Still I wish you the best of luck, a healthly body (hopefully it is doing better), and losts of fandom for your awesome comiccccccc~

BTW, totally gonna get it. >D

Thanks! ^^
And body is better- foot aches off and on, but it's gotten arthritic after the surgery, which was too be expected. I just hate that it gets cranky on cold and rainy days. Currently I have a head cold :nuu: thanks to my brother; who I plan to murder, the moment he gets off work.:stab:
But I am so excited for New York this October! It's going to be wicked cool. :squee: Eventually the Megabrain site will set up a thingy so you can buy the comic book online.:la:

I want to get more of my own comic book stuff done soon too! I need to kill some commissions first. :happybounce:
