2012/03/03: Other Artisty Stuff
I mentioned before that I was going to need a new artist, since Shintear has entirely vanished into thin air, and I kind of gave up after two weeks of prodding at his email. With respect to Villainmad, this isn't a problem; Villainmad is basically a commercial venture involving my own IP, so I can hire someone to do that, and I already have a couple of leads as far as that goes.
What is a problem is that Shintear was primarily/originally helping when I needed extra art for Create.swf Adventures,1 and we also had plans to make "real" (i.e. non-Create.swf) comics based on the setting and stories of Touhou Nekokayou, including adaptations of my terminally-unfinished fanfics, with me writing the scripts and him doing the artwork. I also had another friend who had expressed interest in translating them into Japanese for the purpose of putting it on Pixiv, but this is basically just academic at the moment, because without an artist, this half-completed script I've got is pretty much never going to see the light of day. I can't draw, and one cause for sleep-dep-induced-depression lately is that everyone I know who can draw is at least one of 1. has ideas of their own, and therefore would have no interest in drawing comics written by someone else, 2. wants money,2 3. has commitment-issues, or 4. would otherwise be unsuited to a long-term comic project.
I dunno. I'm not even sure if this is a call for help, or anything. I mean, with CSA, my future projects can pretty much do without anyone else's help (depending on whether you count the audience participation which is built into the premise), and I guess I could drop the "real comics" idea for good ... even though I've kind of been mentioning it for months. Just sort of "ehh," really.
1Yes, #2 is still in the works.
2Which is made even thornier by the fact that Touhou is someone else's IP.
