Well, with college finished and the job hunt underway, I can now work on some of my own stuff without worrying about falling behind on school work.
Now, of course for the sake of a fantasy-themed story, one must have some stock creatures/monsters to throw at the heroes. In collaboration with a fellow animation graduate, I've come up with two clean concepts of some monsters.
And on that note: I'm actually drawing the comic now! It's been a long time coming, I have a first chapter totally scripted (with the whole first story arc planned out) and I've finally gotten a start on drawing it.
Oh and again, expect a Portal 2 review soon enough.
