Hello everyone,

time passed way too quickly and I think it is time for a quick new journal entry. So what happened so far: At the moment I am watching many lists for possible jobs, and last week a gastric flu kicked me straight into the guts. It was the first time I got this since I was in the kindergarten. I am 29 since this year, so you can guess how long ago this has been for me. Luckily I didn't eat much the day before, so it was mainly the exhaustion and loss of energy that got me mainly. And the stomach that didn't like food very much afterwards. It all got better a few days ago and I am feeling more or less tired, still. Lost 4.3 kilos within a day, but hey, it was weight I tried to lose anyway.

As for the brush account: It will come very soon, as it seems. And with that being said, my so far only premium content-brushset, the Camelhair Brushes Elite Version, will be back as well. I will work together with my best friend, together, brush creation will be way more efficient. And we are thinking at using patreon or so as well... But let's see. Many free brush sets will show up, don't worry.

As for my personal project Forlorn Knights: It is by all means not as far developed as I have planned, however, I am still going to start writing the chapter manuscripts (which is the Beta state of my project, before it will be illustrated) this summer. Since I have developed the early structure, of the beginning of Forlorn Knights, and even one story arc might have 12 chapters minimum, I can still start uploading the chapters and develop what lies ahead. I just want to prevent to write the chapters too early, as it might end up in plotholes, retcons and arsepulls (which is all what I do not want to see in my story, everything will be well explainable), but I think I'll manage... Some chapters might be fairly short in text, as some of them will be very image heavy in the finished version of Forlorn Knights.

The Beta phase will need a couple of years, as I want to have the full story written and readable. Meanwhile there will be concept images and sceneries for the story, and when it is completed, every chapter will be illustrated and possible parts of the story might be extended if I forgot about something resulting in a plothole.

The story itself is huge, I mean really, really huge. Writing it first is a must in order to work with the plot properly.

There are 5 plotlines in the first half of Forlorn Knights, each plotline has multiple arcs. I would say that only one plotline within one arc will have lots of chapters. There are many different characters and the world itself, the third continent named Thyranrayr, is a vivid place with many different people, groups, characterclasses and subplots. I think that everyone who has some patience for a large story will find a favourited plotline, or better, a favourited (or more than one) character.

Well, I'll see. In any case I do not expect anything, but if there is just one I can inspire it will mean everything to me.

I hope you all have a great weekend and all the best,

- Dave

In any case:

The points goal doesn't have to be reached, there will be more brushes showing up no matter how much support I get.

-It only depends on the amount of donations how fast they will show up.

Upcoming Brushes:
