Heads up! Long post! TLDR at the bottom
For those of you who know, I've been sort of inactive the past few years - other than the occasional drawing. Sometimes I may have missed questions or comments, so I'm sorry for those I should have responded to in the past. I'm trying to change by becoming more active in the Monster Hunter / DA art community in general! I'm watching a few clubs, commenting more and wouldn't mind to get to know some of you.
In the past, it was fairly difficult for me to spend much time online, especially after joining a hectic workforce, suffering through commute and having most weekends booked. For the longest time I was just in work-work-work-mode, and had my creativity sapped to the bare bones. It didn't help that I was going through some medical issues which left me tired and fatigued. This was especially depressing and draining on me. I'm much better now, (after changing my diet). And with the advent of new and juicy technology, I have new ways to express my artistic side and am better able to keep track of things online.
To help encourage and speed up my creative process, I went and got a tablet screen (Cintiq) and recently a portable tablet, this way I can draw even when I'm not home. Hopefully this will please some of my fellow Hunters and help me develop as an artist.
With that being said, Monster Hunter, my favorite video game of all time, is still a small niche in the west and I wanted to keep the fandom alive by posting more 'I Want to be a Monster Hunter!'
comics in faster successions. Previously, I oftentimes would wait months and months (and even a year) before posting the next one. I'm sorry for those who are long-time watchers. I appreciate your patience and love every one of you.
I found that I thoroughly enjoy drawing these comic strips so will continue to do so as long as I'm able.
Concerning 'IWTBAMH', some of you may have noticed that I've gradually shifted from short, random hunts+random humor to something a little slower with more (cough)story(cough). But don't worry~ I will still keep the humorous, light-hearted, happy-go-lucky feel of the comic. I've just made this decision because I love, Love, LOVE
the lore and history in the Monster Hunter universe. I wanted my comic to give MH lore more of a chance to shine through and flesh out a world most of us don't even know exists. RinOkami
was great enough to point me to some tidbits, and Azophel
has an amazing MH Map that I adore looking at.
In conclusion, thanks for reading / watching me and always keep hunting!
For those who want to keep up with my other shenanigans, I have a (s)Tumblr page here: INKOSEH
Sorry I didn't answer your messages the past 5 years. I'm trying to be a better person and artist. Going to start posting comics more quickly. I love MH lore and you should too! Thanks!
