Blondie Artwork Update, Chapter 3, and More Exciting News

Hello everyone. Sorry for the delays on Chapter 3. These past few days have been full schedules, and I just got done with a round of applications to Warner Brothers. Not even kidding. Thirteen jobs ranging from executive assistant to barista on the lot, many of which required me to type up entirely new cover letters. But hey. It is Warner Brothers. Shoot for the stars.

But rest assured, Zhyx is moving along as always in spite of working on career advancement and other writing projects putting it on the side every now and then. Joseph Buehrer just sent this rendition of Professor Graga ‘Blondie’ Kelpla in, the intellectual orc who serves as both the party’s brain and muscle. She will be subject to some small revisions, but Joe and I are working on a meeting this coming Thursday, so hopefully we will finish her then.

Some bigger news as well. This story is working towards a predetermined conclusion. I am not sure how long it will take to get there, or how many other foes the hero will have to conquer, but I do now that ending. It has already been written.

For me, it is never the ending that is the hardest part, nor the beginning. The middle is where I struggle. The middle of the saga is coming, and it is quite intimidating. I could get through book one. Hopefully the next books will go just as smoothly.

Though I am struggling a bit for ideas, I do know how the second story goes at least. A rough outline has already been completed, and we already have a title. A few days ago, I talked with David Spada over at Monster Legacy about the story, and he sent over these wonderful early concept pieces based on the next monsters that the Great Red Wyrm will have to face.

Hope you all enjoy these and are getting as excited as all of us are. That ugly hombre right above is something you will be seeing a lot more of in the not too distant future.

I will be working on Chapter 3 the next few days, and it will be up by the end of the week at the latest. Thanks for stopping by and see you all around.
