I'm DeAnna, a.k.a. D.J. Evans. I write stories, draw manga, and other stuff XD

Daily Blog #118: I DON'T THINK I CAN DEW EET Q_Q

Konnichiwa minasan. Watashi wa tako ja nai.

@u@ We were at my brother's house for D&D today. We sneaked into a castle and fought a goblin.
And that's basically it. XD
I was shooting an arrow at the goblin, and I rolled a 20, which is a critical hit. So I got to roll again, and got a 19. And then I rolled two d8's, and got a 6 and an 8.
So. Yeah. He died.
About six times over.

For those of you who are wondering how I got the texture on the picture I posted yesterday:
I used a sort of stamp-thing that looks like... I don't know, cobwebs, or whatever it looks like to you, with the airbrush tool and a light grey color. And I spread that all over the picture.
As always, the program was GIMP.

I keep making typos. I dont think I can type right now. XD
Oh, wait. //moves lamp so that I can actually see what I'm doing/ Much better.

So... Should I write or play Pokemon?
Both, I guess.
What should I write?
Maybe Zodiac Fearslayer.
I wish I could get myself motivated to draw Alpha/Omega. Seriously.
I told someone I would try to get it started again by the end of this month, though. When I tell someone I'm going to do something, that usually motivates me a whole lot more to do it XD
Sigh... If it weren't for Pokemon Y, I'd probably be working on Alpha/Omega right now. >_<
Oh well.
More storyline has been coming into my head. QwQ It's so beautiful. And awesome. And, well, some of it is sad. But then it's happy~
I wish I could just write it in book form. Because it's WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY faster than drawing it in manga form. Q_Q But I already decided that the manga would come before the book. You want to know why? Because if I write the book, everyone will know the story and I'll no longer have any motivation to do the manga. None. I know this because I started writing the book form of Ever-Present Dreams before I started the manga, and now it's like... Psh. I would never make a manga of it now. I just can't.
It's sad. oAo
Eventually, though, everyone will know the story of Alpha/Omega~
I'm sure it won't take much longer than ten or twenty years.
//faceplants and sobs on the floor/

THREE books I have to draw. Three. Alpha/Omega will be a trilogy, as you should know by now as I've said it a couple hundred times.
That's like...
Ok, I just did a calculation.
In all, it could be about 4,500 to 7,000 pages.
Oh, wow.
This isn't going to work.
Can I draw this much?
I really don't know.
I hope I can.
I don't know.
This is seriously scaring me. I might not be able to do it.

I'm depressed now.

I just did another calculation. If it ends up being 2,000 pages long, and if I drew 10 pages a month-- which, everyone knows I don't do that much-- it could take me around 10-20 years to finish.
Wow. So, I was actually right when I said ten or twenty years a few paragraphs ago...


I really can't do this. Even if I continue to have motivation for that long-- which, I might, but I really don't know--
I wouldn't be able to keep Alpha/Omega stuck in my head for so long. I would either explode or go insane. This story needs to be on paper and read by SOMEone.

My motivation for it is only going to go down, I think. And as you probably know, I've been working on it since June and have less than 30 pages.


I'm considering focusing on the book version instead. This way, the entire trilogy could possibly be finished in about 2-5 years.
I might not ever draw the manga version. All of my motivation might just disappear. I've had this experience, so I know-- if I write the book form, I may not be able to make myself do the manga form.

So, just warning you-- and, if I could have any opinions or suggestions, please say something.
