Soo, seeing as I never made a proper R4 update and the old journal is making my page look scrappy, I think it's high time for a new and improved post!
The final round of #Idrisfall-OCT
is upon us! Round five, aaaaa!! It's me versus the awesome ~Miropepo
+ his characters the Idekai siblings, and I'm p. excite! I think (and hope, re. my round, haha) that this will be a fun round to spectate and a fitting end for such a cool tournament! It really is kinda wild, tho, how quickly time flies; soon Idris will be complete... it's a strange thought, but a good one I think! Knowing me, I'll probably make another more commemorative/nostalgic journal closer to the end, hehe. c:
I will be working to complete R4 for sure, but no ETA on the pages. Right now my desktop is down, and while I have my laptop + sai, there's no Photoshop to make panels, flats, or text with. It'll get fixed, no worries, but for now I'll be limited to sketching and lining. I might work in passes on both rounds concurrently, too, or work on R5 stuff first, or... point is, it'll get done but going in order isn't a priority, so IDK when you'll see it. : p
Also been thinking about what OCT to do after Idris; Roulette City 2 seems like the biggest possibility thus far! No definite thoughts on what char I'll be entering with yet; the char I had *planned* to use for my next venture ended up not working, b/c their powerset (illusions, don't work w/ cameras) is strictly incompatible w/ the televised nature of the contest. Or maybe it isn't and I could play with that? Would be a challenge, I'd have to structure their fights to be outside of what's televised, and keep them out of the limelight in-story. Maybe/maybe not?
Aside from that, I'm very tempted to bring back my old TT character, Nicholas, b/c he didn't have a good enough run and he's a HUNNY BUNNY. The two OCTs have a judge in common, tho, and given the somewhat similar premises, I'm unsure. xD What do you guys think? Think it' d be possible to make it feel fresh if I changed enough/took a new angle? Or would it be better/more of a learning exp. if I did something totally new?
This journal is getting way too full for any RL updates, but everything (so far) is going well, though I'm a little nervous about this semester. Been spending a lot of time w/ fam and friends, and got to see some cool movies over the break, which makes me happy. I'm also doing a Secret Cupid event, so gotta get that one done, too! Later guys, thanks for reading!
