Well it’s been about a month since my last update, so I figured it was time for another to let everyone know how things are going. In short, things have certainly been better. This post is mostly to inform readers and fans who have been patiently waiting for several projects to come out that there have been some setbacks for many. No, I’m not talking about the next Chronicles of Eden book, that isn’t involved in this. All the artwork for that book has been completed and I’m working to get it ready in in its finest form for all to enjoy.
This update is in regards to several other things I have been working on and planned to be working on, that have encountered some major problems that I have to deal with. And those problems are pretty much the same; those I’ve commissioned to help with them are no longer returning my messages or providing updates. In short, they’re pretty much gone. These are artists and programmers I’ve enlisted to help with numerous endeavors that I’m sad to see have been abandoned. I will not be posting names of who ghosted me as I don’t want anyone to go after them or provoke a fight that at this point is essentially meaningless and will bear no benefit for anyone, but I will let you know what was left in the dark. These include:
– Illustrations for the Chronicles of Eden Card Game
– Concept artwork for the Chronicles of Eden body pillows
– The Chronicles of Eden video game
– The Chronicles of Eden animated trailer version 2.0
– Various illustrations, from spicy group shots of the girls, Max’s complete harem portrait, and rendered scenes from the books
– Illustrations for Demons of Aether Volume 2
I’m sorry to say many of these won’t be seeing the light of day any time soon. For some, I haven’t heard or seen an update for over a year since they were first commissioned, so its a safe bet they won’t be coming out at all. I have nobody to blame but myself for this, of course. After all, when working with online people in general, there’s always this risk. It really sucks when it happens, especially when down-payments or even payments in full are made with them, but this is the harsh reality many content creators have to face from time to time.
So, I am sorry for the delay, and possible cancellation of some of these projects. I really wanted to share them all with everyone. For some good news, though, the new Season 1 covers for the Chronicles of Eden books are almost done and ready to roll out (just one more cover to be finished). I will happily continue working with that artist, and will attempt to find new ones for the projects I wanted to bring to life. Just know that it may take a while as my spare funding for these things needs to be sorted out after all this before making any notable expenditures in the future. That and I need to find some very trustworthy people to work with, which alone can take a while.
Until then, thank you for your patience with me, and thank you to everyone who continues to support me. It is greatly appreciated, especially in times like this.
