It's been a while since I've said anything about my original Star Wars fanfic, "A devoted heart, a black affection". I've seen that people still love it and want me to update it. Well, I have some good news. Here's an update on what's going on.
I've been taking art classes in anatomy and the fundamentals of art for over six months now. The classes have been short; only 3 hours a week, 10 days for each semester. And thanks to them I see a LARGE IMPROVEMENT in my art. The classes have been helping me immensely, and I'm still taking them. I have a lot more confidence in my skills now than I ever did before.
Here's the thing. I see now that what I want to do the most in life more than anything is make comics. I've been working on ideas and scripts for original stories that I want to create and one day publish.
But I put so much love and effort into my Star Wars fanfic, that I don't want to give up on it or throw it away just because it's a fanfic.
I recently bought Manga Studio 5. It's going to be the main program I use to make comics. I'm still getting used to it, but it's not that difficult. So using this program, I'm going to soon begin creating the first pages of my fanfic, finally putting it in comic format.
"A devoted heart, a black affection" is going to be re-written and made in comic form. I'm going to be changing a lot of stuff around, and so much of it is going to be different from the original fanfiction. I might even change the title of the story. The reason for the changes is because I was not satisfied with how the story in the original fanfic was flowing, and there are things in it that need to be changed in order for me to do others things that I want with the characters.
I've decided to finally make the comic version of ADH, ABA not only because I love Star Wars, Maul, and the fans that like my story, but also because it can help me in the long run. It's going to be great practice for when I start making my originals comics, and hopefully through it I will gain a following of loyal fans that will love my original stories and would maybe want to buy them.
I'm currently making a test page of my Star Wars comic in Manga Studio 5 of Maul and Arian (my OC, if you don't remember). The way it's going to be drawn and colored will reflect and give you a clear idea of how the comic in its entirety will look once I start from chapter one. Once I'm finished with the test page, I will start on the scripts and layouts of the comic and finally begin drawing everything out. I want to try and put everything in color, despite it making the process slightly longer. All the pages will be uploaded here to my deviantart. If anything "erotic" is made, all the erotic pages will be uploaded to my tumblr, while the same pages might make it here, but they'll be censored.
I hope that some of the people that love ADH, ABA on fanfiction . net will see this, and will hopefully read and love the comic version of the story. Much love to you guys, and I'll be updating and starting everything soon, probably within the next few weeks if my work doesn't get in the way.
