Plans for this year are kind of off schedule due to work situations, but since that's beyond my control, I'm not beating myself up over it (much). I will say, though, that I still have writing and art projects in the pipeline.

One art project I'd really like to tackle is a series of updated, more-detailed portraits of the main cast from Auran Legend. That's right, I haven't forgotten about them ;)  They've come a long way since their first drawings many years— wait, a decade ago?? Already? Wow, this is long overdue... Mai Tao, Mikaou, Akosha, Ri'kinto, Tekari, and Kibwe all deserve some new looks, and viewers! After all, the novel is already complete and seeking a publisher (in fact, on that front I've been checking around for some potential new places to submit to, but I gotta do my research first).

As mentioned in the recent con report, I'm also in the process of attempting sequential art once again. I don't have much to show for it yet, unfortunately, but the idea has been lingering in the back of my mind so long that I just have to try it. Something I hope to get to in the coming months.

Along a similar vein, I've also been contemplating what to do with my Tech Sorceress idea. I fear it may be too hard of a sell to attempt publication, but another route I could try is to write it all up, edit it, and then post the story and its entirety online for free, as an example of my work to others that's free of charge. Of course, since it's an idea that's heavy on visuals, I have in mind a plan for each chapter, or even each scene, to be accompanied by an illustration. C'mon, it involves super sexy sci-fantasy ladies; it just begs to be seen (and that's the kinda stuff I love drawing). As I said before, however, this particular story isn't anywhere close to being ready to show off yet since I'm still so early in the creative process. Another project to tack onto the future to-do list, maybe for 2017 or 2018, depending on how things go.  With that in mind, however, I admit I have been neglecting dA in regards of prose.  I remember a while back it was a hassle for me to upload stories here, but maybe that's changed since then.  We'll have to see.

For something a little closer to now, I've decided that with Legend already finished, my next big project will be the rewrite of Auran Connection that I've been planning. Lani and Riff were my first editors to the story and were excellent teachers (very patient, too), and I would like to take what I learned back then, apply it to what I've learned with Legend and Guardian Angels (read it), and come back to this modern epic to tighten up the plot, condense a lot of fluff, and fix a few continuity errors that I stubbornly left hanging thanks to past-me's naiveté.

Depending on how fast that goes, next up will likely be either Serenity's Edge (Kaili and Ïsara) or Knights of Lunae (Dame Sahara and the ARC Knights). No guarantees on whether I'll get to either this year, but at least I've got my plans.

Now... to just get them implemented...

Relaxing at Christmas by Aelius24
Relaxing at Christmas
Nothing like a warm, comfy seat for you to watch the snowfall from (and with a mug of hot chocolate!)  Here's Melon enjoying the view, finding a moment of calm during what we usually consider a hectic holiday season.  Always remember to seek out these moments whenever you feel stressed during this season ^_^

Hope everybody has a wonderful Christmas!

Mirage's Weapons, Again by Aelius24
Mirage's Weapons, Again
:icongushousekai195: commissioned me for another picture of my sultry snow leopard sniper Mirage, still in the same outfit as before aelius24.deviantart.com/art/Mi…, but in a similar pose as seen here aelius24.deviantart.com/art/Gu…. I'm always up to draw a pic of her ^_^  Here she is once again, flaunting that confidence we all know along with her preferred arsenal, good for long-range and up-close engagements.  The outfit probably isn't something they'd wear out in the field, but it makes a nice training outfit in between missions.


This was also one of my first exercises in Manga Studio.  I'm glad I snagged it during Black Friday, because right now Photoshop would rather commit seppuku than cooperate with my graphics card :p

Maturity level 18... still :p

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes on the shoutbox!  And so I reach the age of 32 today. Even so, I've always held that you're only as old as you want to be, and truth be told I still feel too young to be owning a house and paying bills XD. Here, this is relevant: itoc.cfw.me/comics/

In remembering last year's birthday journal, I'd like to think I've made decent progress in my goals. I've already got one short story published (Inhuman Acts, from FurPlanet. Go check it out!), and submitted a few others, though those wound up being rejected. A least it's more that I had last year! I've also got one novel ready to submit as soon as I find a publisher (Auran Legend), and am working on another. In fact, I actually plotted out a potential writing cycle with all the novel ideas I had, and not only did I have a working plan to start with, I also realized I need to get to work NOW. If I were to write two novels per year, beginning in 2016, it'll be 13 years before I run out of story ideas, and that's only if I don't come up with more ideas during that 13 year period (highly likely I will). So yeah... I need to get crackin'.

Fennec Girl Challenge - Silara! by Aelius24
Fennec Girl Challenge - Silara!
So I hear there's a fennec girl challenge going around courtesy of Zaush.  Me, having a plethora of fennec girls, had to decide which one to make for this XD  I chose Silara, giving me a chance to do some new designs for those distinctive ear tattoos.  Plus, I had this pose in mind for her and couldn't wait to try it out.

No nips showing; I wanted this to be a bit more General-rated.  So here she is!  Looks like she's already cleaned, preened, and ready to face the day.

Hi, I'm Aelius. Just a simple fennec fox from the southeastern USA.
I consider myself both a writer and artist; in my gallery you're bound to find a lot of characters who are featured in my tales (one of them I'm hoping to turn into a novel soon).

Let's see... what else...
- I'm also a Christian (no worries, I'm not the kind you see on TV ^_^)
- Love video games, writing fiction, reading fiction, drawing whatever comes into my mind, listening to music... and simply daydreaming.
- I have Attention Deficit Disorder (without the hyperactivity; it exists =p ), but I wouldn't really consider it a bad thing...
- Sorry, but I don't RP, here or anywhere else.

And for those interested, I post commissions from other artists in my Scraps gallery. Check 'em out to see if I've commissioned an artist you like :)
