YEEEEEEEEEEEEEESH! Oh my GOD I can't even tell you guys how freakin' happy I am to dish out this news. I’ve been working my ass off for almost a full year to get this book together, and finally, FINALLY, I’m nearly finished. This whole week has been spent on formatting the book and drawing thumbnails for the speedpaints that'll be featured in it, and I've completed them both. Now all there's let to do is 2 more sections in the text, have said text proofread, and the speedpaintings, and then I'm LITERALLY FINISHED!!111!
I'd say I'm about 95% in with finishing the damn thing, and I’m feeling pretty proud of myself; it’s one of the longest projects I’ve stuck with and it’s almost in fruition. FINALLY DRDASAGSODSOFAODFOS! Big shoutout to my buddy Shaleclaw too; he’s been a HUGE help in the making of this beast, and has helped keep me sane through it all as well. x3
If anyone's interested as well, you can check out some of the thumbnails I've done for the speedpaintings:
But there's actually a point to this journal other than showing my enthusiasm. I'd like to talk about the book for those of you who are interested in buying one. c:
The book is a hybrid between a worldbuilding book, art book, and maybe a tiny bit of storybook. It's 10x8 landscape and, for the standard edition, will come in 67 pages with images that are in full color as well as some concept sketches, and doodles. ALL of the artwork is done by me, however there will be some art featured that were collaborative works.
The Limited Edition of the book, however, is hardback with a dust jacket and a higher quality of paper, and it includes these features:
-The edition of 8 extra pages filled with art not featured in the standard edition
- A 1 Bit Equestrian coin (comes with velvet pouch)
- A limited edition print/poster of Luna
- Alternative cover
- My signature
The price for the Standard version of the book: $50, shipping price NOT yes included in the price.
Price for Limited Edition is version of the book will be $75.
But yeah, just something I wanted to inform your guys about. C: If you have any questions free to ask! 8D
