Straight from the Preds Mouth Vol 1 is nearly here Posted 1 year ago
So my reboot of my Straight from the Preds Mouth interview series is nearly here. Unlike the two I did previously this will be a in a magazine style format featuring several interviews, pinups and the first part of an expose/editorial about a reporter and her crew entering a strange world filled with very powerful predators.

To start here some basic questions I'm sure you'll have.

Is it free? Sort of.

To be more specific there will be an asking price of 7.50 however you will be able to edit this when paying. you can choose to pay nothing or if you want to continue supporting me you can pay whatever you like up to the 7.50 asking price.

Where will this be available? On my E-Junkie, but as stated before you don't actually have...

Upcoming Projects Posted 1 year ago
It's been more than a month since my last journal and to be fair I haven't exactly been active. However that does not mean I haven't been doing things. Unlike a lot of my past works that could be thrown together in anything from a fews hours to a week, what I've been working on takes a lot more planning and forethought.

So for starters I would like to point out that the planning stage of entire first mini episode of my Fractured Realm animation is complete with half the scenes setup and more than 2 minutes of footage rendered. Unlike my previous animations that had very short shots interlaced, the shots I'm doing for the new animations are a lot longer and more complex, which of course means it takes much longer to render them. However I will be showing off a teaser for the...

A brief overview of my next big animation Posted 1 year ago
With the release of Flight of Feast, I am now looking ahead toward something even more ambitious. I've always wanted to flesh out this particular universe, either through a comic that enhances the characters backstories or animations that brings them to life. And yet a short 5 minute animation is hardly enough in my opinion. So I've decided to take it to the next level, as many of the characters from The Fractured Realm have their inspirations rooted firmly in anime, I think it's only fitting for my next project to be a full episode length animation.

Yes you read that right, a roughly 25 minute animation.

The logistics of creating something like this compared to Flight or Feast is on a whole different scale. And as such I will be releasing 5 seperate animations...

Flight or Feast AMA is now live Posted 1 year ago
Okay, so with the release of Flight or Feast, I will be having an AMA both here and on my DA page. However before we start there is one rule.

1. This AMA is only about Flight or Feast and the Fractured Realm in general, things like the animation process, the characters and the universe. Any unrelated questions will be ignored.

So let's begin.
Flight or Feast is nearly here. Posted 1 year ago
Well, it's been a long road since I started out with the very first storyboard but at long last it is nearly complete. Flight or Feast will be released this Sunday the 10th of March! The final product looks a lot different than how I originally imagined it as for certain reasons, several characters and locations had to be cut in order for it to work but in the end I'm still proud of the result.
Not only that, immediately afterward I will be holding an AMA both here and on DeviantArt. However be aware that the AMA will be focused on The Fractured Realm universe and the characters from it.
Does anyone remember that little competition I set up? Posted 1 year ago
For those who were unaware, last year I set up a competition based around my Fractured Realm universe. The competition revolved around guessing the inspirations for the six goddesses, Blazeneria, Aimere, Crystala, Freecia, Ziedeska and Aquazagia.
Each Goddess was inspired by female characters from different anime, guessing a character correctly earned that individual an immediate 5 page free comic commission.
During the first few months of the competition over half of the answers were guessed correctly, however interest quickly faded.

I am not too concerned if people don't want free stuff from me as it's less work but is there anyone who has not already won a prize that would be interested in actually participating in the competition or should I shut it down...

The state of things and what's to come Posted 1 year ago
Okay, so as some of you have no doubt noticed, I've stopped updating my supposedly ongoing comics.The fact of the matter is that my current job is taking an enormous toll on me mentally. That's not to say it's a bad job, it has provided me with some of the best opportunities I've had in over 5 years and the pay is really good. However at the moment it pretty much entails watching both grass grow and watching paint dry without the exhilaration. If you've ever read through a textbook on legislation of tax reforms, imagine that, only replace the single textbook with several hundred. So yes, my mind is currently being fried and due to that I have no energy left to make art, that said I should be over this in a week.

So first things first, I make absolutely no apology about putting...

Commissions Reopened - Limited Slots Posted 1 year ago
I have reopened my commissions and made several changes.
I have simplified what I produce, instead of images being rendered at either 1080p, 1440p or 4K, and being priced on that basis. Now all single images and sequences will be rendered at 4K, with a single flat rate on both.

For sequences there are two optional costs, one is for speech bubbles and sfx while the other is for a story to accompany the sequence, this will be spliced between the panels.

The cost for comics has gone up slightly while the cost for 1080p animations has come down slightly.

At the moment I have 7 slots available, ......

Ongoing Comics Posted 1 year ago
Even though animating takes up quite a lot of my time, I am still interested in making comics. To this end I am going to be posting comics twice weekly here on Eka's for free. Starting off with two comics.

A week with Aunt Amanda
Amy and Danielle, two young women have been unceremoniously dropped off at their Aunt Amanda's apartment for a week while she goes on a much needed vacation. There's just one small problem they have with this, Aunt Amanda is a ravenous predator, though at least she knows how to properly reform the girls she eats.


Diana's Fantastic Female Feast
When Diana learns about a new restaurant that serves only the best girls around she is a little unsure, after all, she has a very big appetite.
Okay, so let's talk about what's coming up Posted 1 year ago
Ariana's Enormous Appetite has just passed over 7.5k, this is more than I was expecting. So I think it's about time to explain what will be happening over the next few months. First of all I would like to make it clear that any and all animations that I produce will be completely free. This is a personal choice, this means that any future animation will not be pay to see.
Second some of you that have watched Ariana's Enormous Appetite may have noticed something at the end. This video is the first in my DF8 Voracious Animations line-up, with Flight or Feast, Stephanie's Snacks and another animation Shrunken Delights to be added soon. This branding defines a clear split with my other more time consuming projects, Comics.

So now we come to the flip side of the coin. While...
