Still working on the first Story. It appears that this will be around 100-150 pages in total and will take me MUCH longer than 3 weeks to fully write out.

I apologize for the lack of Drawings. I will get some stuff going. Been a rough couple of weeks at work.

Thanks all!
I've fleshed out the story for the first book and have begun writing it out. Thing is, I can't see this book being shorter than 100 pages, so its going to take me much more time than I thought. So, What I'll do is draw a couple pictures throughout the weeks and try to get the book written in a 3-4 week time span.

That way I'm still uploading content and getting the story fleshed out.

Thanks all!

Just to prove to you all that I am serious about getting this project started, here's a quick sketch of a "Character" That will be involved in the first short story I'm working on!

Dear Remaining Watchers,

    I know it has been a very long time since I published something on here. I've had a lot going on in life and have been greatly discouraged from drawing. I have a lot of goals I want to pursue and I'm not sure which ones I should focus on chasing.

I really want to continue my path as an Artist. It will take a lot of time and patience, I understand that. My ADD has made it very difficult to maintain disciplined with my artwork, and my addiction to Video Games doesn't make it any easier. With that said, I feel like that there is a good way to stay committed to improving my artwork, as well as pursuing another goal I am interested in, which is story telling.

For those of you who didn't know, I actually like writing fantasy stories. I tried writing a book a couple years back, but my interest in it diminished as I got distracted later down the road. I doubt I have the ability to write a whole book, Or even the skills for it.

What exactly am I planning?

To write a series of short stories that will have an Illustration from the story added to it.

This way I get to continue working on the Lore for my story, as well as practice my writing and my drawing skills.

I decided to call this The Darkness Gate Project, and for those of you who would be interested in this, keep a close eye on my DA page.

I'd like to aim for a post a week, but I'm not entirely sure if I would be able to keep up with a pace like that, as some stories will definitely be longer than others, and some illustrations may end up more detailed than others, so I'll have to wing it.

I would greatly appreciate any attention I get for this, and will welcome all comments, critiques, and discussions!

Thank you all,
