Streaming - now on Sundays - Also moving to Tumblr

Hey folks!
I’ve decided to move the streams permanently to sundays, since i always seem to have stuff to do on saturdays.
I’ll set the time for 7 PM for now, and we’ll see how many people can make it, or if you would prefer earlier in the afternoon.
Let me know what you think! :)

Also!
It's a bit tiring to have to post at three places everytime I want to do something, so since Tumblr seems to have more people watching, I will be continuing to post there.
This blog will stay up, but I won't be posting on it.


You can follow me here:

The work is progressing on episode two. Steadily but not so fast since I only have time to animate on weekends. It should pick up speed once I have a place to sleep closer to work, next month.

As always, thanks for following shieldmaiden! :)

HI everyone!

Sorry for the silent week, It’s been very busy! My new job requires me to take the train two hours a day. ( ZZZZZ …)
But even though I seem to have less and less time, I’m far from abandoning Shieldmaiden!
I can’t use the travel time to animate, but I’m putting it to good use for planning and working on the webcomic story.

Concerning the animation, don’t forget to check in on Saturday for the weekly stream to watch me work on the rough!
The stream will be at 4 PM, as I will be away during the evening.
See you there! :D

Tired - Stream

Hey guys, sorry for the quiet week. I’ve been hard at work, plus I had to spend tuesday night at the hospital (Not for me) and wednesday night the fire alarm had everyone up at 3 am.

So, very tired due to the lack of sleep, and a very busy week, but I will be streaming on Saturday at 20,00 like before. I hope you will come and watch!

Cheers

Back!




Hi everyone. I’m back from Belgium!

I still have some work to finish for my Belgian job, but I’m working on the rough animation for the rest of the week, before my next job starts.

I will also be streaming tomorrow at 20,00! If you want to see how the rough is coming along, come have a look! :)

Sorry!




Dear readers!
I wanted to apologize for the very rushed comic strip last week and
provide some explanation.
I started the webcomic as a way to showcase the characters from my
short film Shieldmaiden, but lately doing the strip, even once a week
has been taking up more time than the animation itself.
The reason for this is that I’ve been getting alot more work this past month,
as well as a new job, which will start in March.
Both the comic and the animation are done during my free time, which has been reduced considerably lately.
I worked full time this last weekend to finish my job in Brussels, which
coupled with the traveling has given me little time to work on neither
the comic or the film.
I will be coming home next week, and before starting at my new job, I will have a few days’ free, which I would like to use to focus on finishing the rough animation so the team can advance the work on the film.
So I will be taking a break from the strip for now, but it will resume mid-March.

I apologize for the inconvenience, but I really would like to finish the
second episode of Shieldmaiden quicker than the first one.
I hope you will enjoy it when it is done, and that you will come back to read the strip, as the adventures of Rota and Harald are just beginning! :)

Strip 19



GODS this strip was a pain.

I think I must have started at least four different versions. Inside the tent. Outside the tent. With fighting. Without fighting. With action scenes. With the bear. Without the bear. ETC ETC ETC.
In the end It was either do something quick or no upload this week.
I don't know if I like this one better than the others I had, but that's the one you get, so I hope you like it. =P

have a good weekend all!

No internet and new comic

Hey folks, sorry I forgot to post here last week:



I'm once again without internet, so I can only post stuff after work, which is why last week's comic didn't get uploaded until now.
I should be back to Lyon in a couple of weeks, so please be patient until then, streams will resume once I'm back.

Thanks!

Aaaaaaannnnddd....nope!

So good news: I have internet!

Bad news: It's not the internet we asked for!
...Long story short, the internet guy couldn't install the net, and we still don't have anything in the apartment. :(
Luckily, we've been able to borrow the neighbour's wifi, so I can at least go online and post comics and stuff..
But streaming's not going to be possible, this wifi makes even loading up a youtube video a crawl.....

So, I'm looking into what else I can show you guys, while I'm in Belgium, if this continues for the whole month of February.
I'll let you know soon!

Please, please, please..pleeeeeaaase....


New comic! I’m posting this from work just in case we still don’t have internet at the apartment when I go home. I sure hope we do…. Wish me luck!

Also, I noticed that I consistently forget to color Rota’s nose every two comics, I’m going to have to get better at that. =P

Anyway, if we finally have internet, there will be a stream tomorrow as normal.
If I don’t write anything more tonight, we have gremlins in the walls or something and I won’t be able to post anything until monday…

Keep your fingers crossed!

Thursday, January 22, 2015

Alright folks, I'm in Brussels but have no internet at home (Writing this at work) Until next week.
So, I won't be able to stream or post anything, but instead I will post two comics next week. See you soon!

Business trip

Hello folks!
I'm not sure I will be able to post a comic or stream this week,
I'm moving to Brussel for a month for a job, and the place I'm staying at doesn't have internet installed yet.
It should be on in a couple of days but I don't have the details yet.

But as soon as I can get online I'll let you guys know! :)

Shieldmaiden strip 014

Hello folks!
It's getting harder to keep up doing two comics a week, so I will be switching to once a week, trying to post it on Thursdays.
That way I can concentrate more on the animation when I'm not working.

I will keep streaming on Saturday evenings, so if you want to watch the process, come take a look! :)

Saturday night stream

I will be streaming tonight again, this time I will be working on the webcomic, since I was not able to finish this week’s comic for yesterday.

Join me at 20.00  (paris time) If you want to watch and chat!
