Hello, and welcome to another segment of "A Few Minutes with Zorzathir". I am Zorzathir, and school's out forever...at least in regards to being a student.
So, as you may have (or may have not) heard from my previous journal, I have finished my bachelor of education and currently am a free man. Now, I am looking for some jobs at the moment, but because of the job market, that may take some time. Nonetheless, this is a good opportunity to working on my own stories and all that jazz.
But before that, I just want to talk about a little mini-series that I did here: "Zorz's Big Brawls". Now, you can read the journal for that (in case you haven't here:
Zorz's Big Brawls*Update* New fight sequence! *Update*
Hello to all reading this journal. This was a little something I decided to try a little while back. Welcome to "Zorz's Big Brawls"!
Deciding to do some drawings, where I could get practice for action scenes, I figured about doing one-shot pics featuring one of my characters fighting one of yours. Yes...you! The idea here is just having a random fight scene between one, so there would be nothing like vote polls (because that's been done already) and these are non-canon images and may not even be entirely accurate representations due to different abilities/skills/etc. So this is a chance to throw in some random pics where you get to see your character in my style (Whether that's good or bad, I can't answer that! ). It's both practice for me and free fan art for you guys.
Here's the gallery:
, but it was more or less a way of helping me get back into drawing, since I had been away from it for quite a while. I just want to thank those people who offered their characters in exchange for a little non-canon fanart. Now, for those who offered their character and didn't get featured in one of these pics, I apologize as I will but this series to halt for the moment. Yeah, just for a moment. I will return to this series at some point when I feel like it's time for more fanart and those that did not get a feature will be the first to be featured. All in all, it was a good way to get back into drawing, which is rather important considering that some of stuff that I will be doing involves drawing. And considering what I need to do, I think it's safe to say that I have something of a to-do list. One other thing that I noticed is that some people commented on the possibility of having their characters interacting with one of mine in some way; or at least that's what I thought. Some images do make one consider the possibility, and as such it might be possibility that the "pairings" that you see in those brawls may occur one day. I'd just have to talk with the original creator(s) and wait for a opportune moment.
Again, want to thank those people that volunteered their characters; it helped rejuvenate my interest in drawing.
Now, let's move on to stuff character-wise. Ok, in regards to personal stories of my characters, one individual in particular needs to get their personal story going; which is:
Now when I mention how this guy's personal story needs to get on a roll, I refer to two things:
1) "Steve Maximus: Origins". This was something that I started years back and I want to finish this off. The reason being is that, as you guessed it, is Steve's backstory, which shows how and why he's molded into the individual he is today; as well as he went from his home dimension to "ours". As such, I'm looking to try and at least get one chapter out monthly if not sooner, because I think it's rather important for the main character's origin story to be shared; even if its presented in a style that not many people want to look at on DA; hey, still doing it anyways.
So, in case you haven't read it and are curious/interested, you can follow the link here: zorzathir.deviantart.com/galle…
(Or just say that I'm a twit that's wasting his time cause that works too!
2) "Progression". Now, when it comes to Steve as he currently is, it's important to implement character development for him; especially in something like
. This is because he can't stay the way that he is forever; despite the reasons for his "character" being the way that it is (which has been hinted in previous comics and expanded more in "Steve Maximus: Origins"). As such, what I want to do is show what can happen with the behaviour that Steve has, especially when it can be dangerous. Now, why would something like this help? Well, essentially I know how Steve will start transitioning from his current self into something "better" (in terms of hero standards), but I want to put him in a position where he would have to:
A) Learn how to be a "nice guy"/"hero"/"better person". I think this one speaks for itself.
B) Earning the trust of others. This is would be pretty important in the long run. I think this is a good way of showing how Steve is his own worst enemy and how he has to overcome his personal faults so that he can gain some allies (outside from some of my own characters).
(I'm just listing a couple reasons at the moment because there's a possibility that I might have forgotten to mention about something else that is important).
So yeah, what I need to do is have Steve in a situation which his actions will cause an outcome that may come back to bite him in the future; or at the very least . Depending on what
may have in store, I can plan it out accordingly if it suits my needs. One thing is for certain, I want to get Steve's character development and personal story on a role; especially before I start moving on to other things I want to do.
Now, other projects. Well...there's this one that had been shelved for a long while, which was between me and
and I think it's important that I get to work on my part and actually proceed with that project.
So yeah, I apologize to
for making him wait for so long, but since I have some free time now, I can get going with this. Hopefully I can plan out the ideas and between himself and I finally plan out, how our little project will proceed. Now for those who are wondering what the heck I am even mentioning, please refer to this page: Vigil - Judgement page 1
With teacher's college done, I really want to get this done because I should have done my part a long while ago.
As for other ideas, I was thinking about going back and doing some reviews. Anyone up for those returning or should I just leave that kind of thing to professionals?
At the same time, I was thinking of doing a little comedic comic series, which involves different scenarios that I can think of, or refer to past experiences, and at the very least attempt to produce some comedic stuff. If you guys are interested in that, let me know. I will try and create the first one by the end of the month and see what kind of response I will get.
This has been "A Few Minutes with Zorzathir". I'm Zorzathir, and I am off to plan my evil schemes...while making sure to avoid any holes in video games.
