At present, Outcast Kingdom is scheduled to update once a month. That's not a lot. Most web comics update weekly. Some more often than that. Why? Well, there are a few reasons.

First of all, and this is kind of a major factor, I am not very good at this. I've been drawing for most of my life, but drawing in a comic format is very different than drawing a single picture. Most of all it can be very repetitive, having to draw the same characters numerous times in a row (especially during dialog scenes). There are more rules and less freedom. Not to mention it involved drawing a lot more than I did back when it was a thing that I did just whenever I wanted to.

Secondly, It's difficult to stay motivated some times. Especially since (as mentioned above) it's a lot different than normal drawing, which means it doesn't always turn out as well as I'd like it to. And not being satisfied with your work can make you feel like you're cutting corners, which sucks a lot. It's like, "I know I can draw better than this, but I have to send it in now because reasons and now I've created something that is not up to par and has my name on it even though it embarrasses me. I feel like a sell out."
Then again, I'm probably making it sound worse than it is. I don't know. It's not that bad. Just... some of it is definitely not as good as it could have been. So I guess I have regrets...?

Thirdly (and maybe most of all), I've got a few big projects that I'm trying to do at the same time.
1: Outcast Kingdom. Of course.
2: Hero's Dilemma (or rather, I'm supposed to be, but I haven't been able to get anything done on it in a while).
2b: Other short stories, also that should have been done long ago.
3: (and this is maybe what I'm most excited about) I am designing a tabletop game. Some friends and family said they'd try it when it's test playable, but it's not quite there yet. It's kind of a hybrid board game / role-playing game. (More complex than the former, but simpler than the latter). If it goes well, I may even try to do a kickstarter for it! I'll also try to post some pictures of the test play when we get to do that.
4: Work related stuff. I won't bore you with the details.
5: I may be moving out of town to stay with friends/family for a while. But this involves planning, communication, planning, talking to people, and communication. Oh, also planning.
6: Fun stuff. Because sometimes you need a break, even if you have the most enriching, fascinating, and fulfilling job in the world (I don't. That was just an example). Sometimes, I just need to play video games.

Well, that's it for now.
Take care, people!

ha ha, yeah. I just turned 30 (I still can hardly believe it!) though I suppose I look (and sometimes act) younger. I don't really feel thirty. Maybe because I haven't gotten as much done as I thought I should have by this point.
