AstralCross - Ch 3 Pg 3
And we're back to this dummy. He just now realized that fighting a Stalfos with a dinky axe was not all that smart.

Edit: I gave our dummy here a few more wounds. By the by, his name is Leoni.

Hi, everyone! Long time no update. Hope everyone is doing alright :) How long has it been since I updated my page, a month? Good grief :confused:

So a good bit of stuff happened in the past several weeks. I had gone to Tampa for a short vacation last week; I needed to leave my hometown for a while. And I brought my laptop with me, but the wifi service at the hotel was iffy. They said it was free, but you had to go through some weird stuff with the sign-up and connection. So I did without it while I was gone. I did take my sketchbook, but barely did anything with it because...I kind of got sick again. Nothing huge, major, or life-endangering or threatening, just a minor headache and exhaustion. I still enjoyed my time off :)

So finally, chapter three of Astral Cross has started, and I am sorry that it took so blasted long. I was working on other stuff...other time consuming stuff, and I fell out of working on the first real page for a while. It sort of put me in an art block, despite that I wanted to keep working on it. You know that feeling you get when you work on something and you feel that something about it isn't right, but you don't want to start all the way over, so you put it off for later? That's what happened to me :depressed:
Plus, I admit I procrastinated a bit. I look for inspiration to get my art mojo back, and I lose focus within seconds. I kept looking at news for released and upcoming games. Speaking of which, Hyrule Warriors came out a few weeks ago :D I haven't played it yet, so I'm trying to avoid spoilers.

Back to AC, I know I've been silent about the comic since chapter two was finished. As in no pages or anything. So I'm going to try and update more often. With Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up, I'll lose free time and be even busier with life as we know it, but I will do my best. I actually had a goal in mind to finish chapter three before the year was over, but now that I think about it...that may be impossible ^^; So bear with me with these updates, please.

:yawn: Oh yeah, before I go, I was tagged by :iconslyboyseth:

1. You must post these rules.
2. Answer the ten questions the person who tagged you made, and then make up your own 10 questions for the people you tag to answer.
3. Choose ten people and put their icons or hyperlinks on this journal.
4. Please don't write something stupid like 'you are tagged if you read this.'
5. You have to legitimately tag 10 people. 
6. No tag-backs.

1. Who is your favorite Disney villain and why?
    I'd have to say Hades from Hercules, because he was funny and despicable at the same time.

2. What's your favorite song from your favorite band?
    I don't really have a favorite band, but here are some personal picks of mine:
        Kill the Lights and Weekend from The Birthday Massacre
        Ready, Aim, Fire from Imagine Dragons
        Prayer from Disturbed
        Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger from Daft Punk
        September from Earth, Wind, and Fire

3. If you got a crossover shipping, what is it?
    I do like crossover pairings, but none really come to mind. Though I do remember seeing Link (Legend of Zelda) X Yuna (Final Fantasy X); that was interesting...

4. Did you know there's a place called Brony in Poland?
    Yep :nod:

5. Does it ever take you long to come up with questions at the end of tagging journals like these?

6. Anyone else a fan of Shantae?
    I don't even know who that is.

7. Ever acted?
    Yes. I even wanted to be an actress one time.

8. If so, what was the part you remember playing at the top of your head?
    I was one of the orphans in Oliver Twist. That was years ago.

9. Got a favorite love song?
    Can You Feel the Love Tonight? by Elton John
    Garden of Everything by Steve Conte and Mayaa Sakamoto
    Ricordando ill Passato by Akiko Shikata.
    ....And I'm not even a romantic!

10. Anybody want more stories with villain protagonists?
    Why not? It'd be cool to see a story from a different point of view.

I'm not tagging anyone, but I will post ten questions you guys are free to answer in the comments. I can do that :p

1. Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?
2. If you're a gamer, is there a certain game company you are unwaveringly loyal to? If so, who?
3. What's your least favorite food?
4. Does the Drowning music from the first three Sonic the Hedgehog games still scare you to this day?
5. Are you an early riser?
6. Do you prefer originality or enjoyability?
7. What food could you go for right now?
8. Are you dressing up for Halloween this year?
9. Which would you rather have; absolutely no fear or everlasting peace?
10. Don't do drugs, kids (don't ask. I'm tired...)

Well, I will talk to you guys again. Stay gold, everybody :sleep:

Have you tried out Demon Legacy yet?  I'm telling you...  don't let the simple combat system fool you (it highly resembles the early FF titles so I never complained one bit ^-^ ), it has a REALLY good story that is comparable to the True Ending of Record of Agarest War, which is a damn good thing since rarely do I EVER see ANY good RPGs out there and this one surprised me with it's good, emotional story that literally made me cry at one certain part I won't spoil for you, it really did... T_T

Not yet. Something was up with my computer so I had to finagle with it for a minute, and it recently went through a forced system update :X But I will try it :nod:

Hold the phone... You know about Agarest War?!? O_O
Ah, I see. :D

Are you kidding me...?   I've been a fan of it for YEARS! XD   I love SO much so that you can consider be a VERY loving/loyal fan of the RoAW series as I know/defeated the true sources of woe in Agarest in the True Ending path that includes :iconmercury--plz:, :iconmobius-plz:, :icondeethplz: (<<HATE this bitch most of all of the six, I truly do...! >_< ), :iconnemesis--plz: (<< The ONLY one of the six I actually felt sorry for as I see that she truly did deserve redemption, unlike the other five and cried when she went away... TT ), :iconmayastiaplz: and last but NEVER least, the leader of the five, :iconchaos--plz:.     I'd SO love for you to do some artwork of the characters, especially of :iconvashtorplz:, :iconhildegard-plz:, :iconleonhardt-plz:, :iconmurminaplz: and the rest, they hardly get ANY fanart love these days after all (only ONE of :iconhildegard-plz: here and it's the ONLY fanart of her on DA entirely, I kid you not, go search "Hildegard Agarest" on DA without the "s and see for yourself... :( And it only exists because I myself requested it so yeah...  it's just sad, really... T_T… )  and i'd like to see how you would draw them. <3   Already completed the True Endings of all other RoAW stories including Zero and RoAW II. :3    And if the plz-icons I made on DA myself (with the exception of :icondyshanaplz: which was NOT made by me, just pointing that out. ^^; ) isn't proof enough that I love this game VERY, VERY, VERY much then I don't know what is... :P lol

Koopakrusher Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2014
IKR?!?! THIS is incredible!! I don't think I've EVER thought of Link joining Mario Kart before! But I've always wanted the two to interact in another way besides Smash Bros.! And now I'm getting my wish! Maybe well see even more someday!
