Not a page, but I put the hiatus notice up for Lemongrass. Here’s hoping I’m back to drawing again soon :(
I think I’m going to have to put Lemongrass on hiatus for a couple of weeks and then take it down to one page per week because my hands really haven’t recovered enough for me to finish the current page. I do so much computer stuff at work that my hands didn’t really get the chance to rest, even with a day off for the funeral and spending most of today out. It’s very frustrating to have to do this, but I don’t want to/hope I haven’t already caused permanent damage, so I’m going to take a break from drawing for a bit and see if that helps.
I just hope I’ve got enough stuff to watch to get me through a fortnight of not using my hands, because I can’t draw, write, play games, make clothes for my dolls or do any of the things I actually enjoy :(
I was totally kidding myself about three pages this weekend. Even if I hadn’t done my hand in I have a funeral to attend tomorrow, a second birthday celebration for my grandfather on Saturday (my aunt decided he needed one last weekend as well as the one this week that we’d had arranged for ages), and a doll meet on Sunday. I shall be satisfied if I get page 100 up, but I’m not expecting anything more.
Page 100 definitely won’t be going up before the weekend because I hurt my hand by spending too much time drawing last week and I banned myself from using the tablet :(
I’m going to see if I can make it to page 105 which ends chapter 4, and then I think I’ll take a couple of weeks off between chapters again, even though I’ve already started pencilling it.
I haven’t even finished inking page 99 yet, but the monstrosity that is page 100 is inked and partially coloured. I think my inking skills have levelled up doing it, because there’s so much detail that I had to rely more on line thickness to achieve the right level of depth.
