Hey, name's Casey.
I'm a typical weeb/nerd/geek/whatever with a love for Japan, nostalgic 90's stuff, cutesy nonsense, etc...

But most importantly I CREATE COMICS! An expanded universe called The EthereaVerse! Check it out!

************ Projects ************

Current series:
- "WOE: Wings Over Ethereal"

Coming up next:
- Various EthereaVerse side stories
- "The Blackjack Chronicles"
(Be patient. That one's gonna be a while.)

Future projects:
- "Project Guardian"
(Will probably follow WOE's completion, or The BJC's, whichever ends first.)

Canceled projects:
- "Black Jack" [Sprite version]

@JoKeR: I dig it.
@JoKeR: Thanks! I was originally gonna make the shift more gradual like the last page where it was still a mix, but the red and blue clashed too hard and made his ghostly effects harder to get right.
(And thanks for reminding me of the proper bucket phrase, I mixed it up with bit the bullet, lol.)

@sentiashinou: Sometimes I struggle with the hairdo but she gets more and more fun to draw as time goes on. I'm glad I didn't cut her out completely, haha.
It's good to be back! Not to put her on the spot or anything but we all have a big thank you to SentiaShinou for WOE's return! Without her help that hiatus would've lasted much, much longer! <3

As for Rev; I can't remember if I ever touched on this here but I always kinda regretted my color choice for him. He and Ara's designs were practically unchanged from the original concept art from before the comic started, (other than Ara ditching some gaudy fanservice fishnets for easy and cool black leggings,) but because of that his red motif kinda blended in too much with all the reds, pinks, and purples that WOE is filled with. I decided it'd be cool if his ghostly form changes colors over the course of the comic, starting with a classy blue to match the Megaton Palm.

Oh, and here's a fun-fact I also don't know if I've shared: Ara and Rev originally had a much more antagonistic criminal role, like a more competent Team Rocket. Of course they'd eventually turn face and join the heroes as the stakes of the story got higher, but they were going to spend much longer as villains and sort of serve as antagonists for the knights and humans to supplement all the Ethereal drama of Season 1. I don't regret cutting their story down to streamline things, (and that info I know I've shared,) but it's fun to think about what WOE would've been like with Ara, Rev, and the cut third member of their troupe popping up to fight the knights.

And lastly; TinyPic has finally bit the bucket, and although all my new pics and graphics have been hosted on stash, some older stuff was still hosted by TinyPic and got taken down. I went through and fixed those up, but if anyone notices any site graphics or pictures I may have missed, let me know! (Especially since I caught a few pages I hosted there that I had to hurry and fix. Site graphics are one thing but entire pages missing is a big issue.)

Oh damn, quite the intelligent Guardian.
Never stop drawing Toji.
You have absolutely no right to upgrade Keise's cuteness that hard.
@JoKeR: Aah don't worry it's not crying, just leaking.

@sentiashinou: Truly the best cure for sadness.
Oh damn, the Lava Guardian looks rad.
(And I love the guards' faces in those middle panels, haha.)
@JoKeR: The problem is I want them to seem fast but not indestructible, but my choices were a single panel of one dodging an attack or a full extra page of multiple attacks being dodged, but then I might've had to reserve more panel-space to show the speed in which Kraz attacks, which I probably should've done anyway. I probably just made a bad call for the sake of quicker pacing, haha.
These panels have been skirting a fine line between me trying to make the Mass Production Riftas menacing and comical.

I think the knights/guards are coming off as incompetent rather than being outskilled, which doesn't help, hahaha. I have plans for more scenes showing their struggle against the creatures but I didn't want to put too much of it right at the start.
@JoKeR: Ha, I love that.
@sentiashinou: Thanks. <3
I'm glad it turned out nice, it was challenging trying to get the effects to look just right, especially with this new version of Gimp I'm still getting used to.

I love how vampirism is treated so mundanely in this universe.
It seems like every time I get held up by something and come back with a "Hopefully I can get back on track!" I jinx myself and something new gets in my way. Dunno if it's my negative mood lately or what but I've also felt less than satisfied with the end results of my pages and panels lately, but oh well, all I can do is keep trying my best. (And this weekend will be a great pick-me-up so maybe I'll be supercharged to be productive on Monday!)
@JoKeR: Interesting. I'll jot those down for potential future needs, for sure.
@JoKeR: Yeah it's been a real chore, that's for sure, but a lot of it has been fixable so far. (The telemetry and privacy stuff is worrisome but a lot of that can be fiddled with and shut off as well.)
I've thought about trying a nice Linux OS someday, I've used Ubuntu to recover files the couple times I fucked something up in Windows several years back, but too many programs and games I enjoy aren't available on Linux so I gotta stick with Windows.
Maybe I could try dividing my life between two computers with different OSes, haha.
I thought I was back in action but then I decided it was a good time to try moving on from Windows 7 to Windows 10 after the last update, and the whole process wound up being a lot more taxing and time-consuming than expected.

I'm really not a fan of Windows 10 and the decisions Microsoft makes. My workflow has been messed up by unnecessary and irremovable clutter in Windows Explorer and context menus and the whole thing is just a mess, but it had to happen eventually and I heard that Windows 7 security updates would be ending soon, so I wanted to just get it over with now instead of putting off the inevitable.

I'll surely get used to it over time, but sorry for letting it put off this update. I had so many files needing backed up and moved around, (I wanted a clean install to purge some of the junk I had accumulated over the past 8 or so years so I had to manually restore the stuff I wanted to keep from my backup, which took days in and of itself,) and lots of settings to scramble to recover or re-set in my comic-related programs, as well as reinstalling fonts and all kinds of other bullshit.

At least now things are mostly back to normal and I can try once again to get back on a more frequent comic schedule!
