description: "Things that've been going on recently"
It's been a long time since I posted anything here, which by no means is the
end of this blog or my art journey. Instead I am preparing my next steps while
going through some changes in my life.
I reached a turning point in life with the end of my apprenticeship as IT
specialist for applications development and got transitioned into a job almost
instantly. To get settled in with the job, company, commute and everything else
that comes with it I gave myself four weeks, which are now coming to an end.
The other point is my preparation for something bigger. For the past year I
have been developing story and characters for a series of comics if gradually
increasing intensity. This takes up quite a bit of my free time I would usually
spend drawing or pursuing my other hobbies where I instead write my script or
devour tutorial after tutorial on how to publish webcomics. And lastly I'm
drawing drawing reference material for said comics, which I don't really want
to publish right now, as it might contain spoilers.
Also my game development projects came to a halt in that time. In that little
time I spent with it I started remodeling the physics "engine" I wrote to a
be based on forces applied to objects and calculated to accelerations,
velocities and movement instead of the other way round. I'm also using some good
literature on that topic: ["Physics for game developers"][pfgd] by Brian
Bywalec and David Bourg, which I found to be a good introductory book into the
topic which transitions into more advanced topics rather nicely.
So in conclusion: yes, I am still out here, drawing and plotting. Expect to get
nice things to look at. I sincerely hope it will be rather sooner than later.
