So, last August I started talking about a comic I wanted to work on called "Dawn of Venus". Unfortunately, I think I announced it here too early. I haven't made much progress due to several rewrites and art style changes. Making art is super time consuming for me, and after 8 months of trying to get this project off the ground I haven't even finished five pages. I lost some passion for Dawn of Venus, but still want to do it... just not right now. Maybe it's just not a good time for me to work on a big comic project. With school, work, and separate writing projects, I'm going to have to put Dawn of Venus on the shelf for a while. I'd hate to completely quit Dawn of Venus, but the concept of actually making anymore progress on it—the way things are now—just seems unrealistic for me.
The good news is that I can get back into the habit of drawing more often without the pressure of a comic looming over me. The idea that I should be working on Dawn of Venus instead of drawing something else has actually killed my productivity and turned me away from drawing. Putting Dawn of Venus away for the future feels like I'm letting a heavy weight off my back.
I'm sorry to disappoint anyone who was looking forward to Dawn of Venus. I think I just need to wait a few years until I'm in a better position to work on a comic. At least I can post on DeviantArt more often now—I hope that's a good enough consolation.
