going live sometime soon, see if you can spot errors,ect
Let me start off be saying I am as wishy washy and fickle as they come so do not expect much.
Early Launch and being sick.
Right now I am sick as a dog and the 3 or 4 pages I need to get done seem to be multiplying , I like some of it but I need to make the info flow better and make more sense.
I have a world building essay of about 17 pages 6K words, I was planning to post at launch, this covers information and history of my multiverse and the main character and other things. But right now I am putting off polishing up some intolerant additions .
Goals if you can call it that...
Kickstarter is a bit beyond my grasp at this point and time since I want to get to a point to sell books and stuff, thus I need something that does not require all my attention and stress me out worrying about fulfilling my role as a content provider to those that back me. Its hell to have standards…. Even as low as they are…
I hope to raise money to help me with my writing, grammar and drawing studies as well as sustain me with a laptop I can draw on. But mainly it’s to have my book project professionally edited. Currently half a half-re-edited 16K story and the main book project is 35ish thousand at 2 chapters and another 10 in a unfinished chapter. Once edited and proofed a couple times I will ave it professionally edited then I will sell the finished product online via amazon and such.
HobbiesMy hobbies are computers, video games, anime, drawing, writing and to a lesser degree music.
Even if I am trying to learn to play acoustic guitar I am so darn fickle, even tho I still want to get an electric so I can try and jam with Rock smith LOL><
I also like to make anime music fan lyrics, the lyrics focus on keeping up with the Japanese syllables so the English grammar can be weak but music transcends the strict and harsh nature of prose. I’ve also slowly gotten better at making subtitles, the music videos I put together only involve the songs op/ed animation but it’s one of the few limits I have placed on myself.
Copyrights and crap
My COTLOP stuff might be copyrighted but even so the base idea for many things is something so generic it can NOT be limited by copyrights. So if you use any of my ideas even a bit give me some credit that’s all I ask. And I wish you well in your projects success!
Primary Book Projects
Book Project: Chronicles of the Lord of Power:Book 1
Yes there will be more than one…well I want there to be more than one, I have plot points to make more than one, but will I ever write out more than one……UHG!! I dunno…but I am a few years and 40,000 something words into book one I am starting to think episodic would be the better way to go but that’s kind of evil not when amazon has a high bottom number you are limited to use.Anyway I developed COTLOP based on games I used to play with other kids in the mid/late 80s bascily a monster of the week deal based on anything sci fi or fantasy driven from TV or comics, it mostly focused on star wars with a monster of the week setup.
Being a lonely child and home schooled meant I had a lot of time to imagine and build up characters and plots, over the years I have complied notes, only in the last 5 or so I have sat down and wrote out hard beginningfor my main character the Lord of Power.
Frist book shows the MC on earth and introduces Dol a short lizard man that was sent out to find one that was chosen to be a warrior of creation, after a humorous encounter the adolescent is sent off to a fantasy world and is given powers as a test. Upon a great beam of light he lands unconscious, protectors, warriors of light were too late to secure him. And he (the MC) is attacked because it damaged the core of his new powers they flew off in 5 segments based on the 5 orbs of creation. He now called the Emissary spends sometime in the local doctor’s cabin recovering, having amnesia of his past and personality. While he lacks memories he can speak and walk fine, and has intent abilities and perception of fighting and magic.After a bit of time and meeting people he tags along with friends to recover his powers.
Chapter 3 is proving painful doing very lite detective work dealing with random gadget’s to try and find the person behind the theft of magical items and other objects of value. The good captain used finding the thief as an excuse to also locate the Emissary's missing power.
“”Orbs of power : From book 1 chap 3
“Orbs ? Of power? “The Captain says” Like the fables I wonder… if I recall correctly… “.
He jumps over the map and pick’s out an old book titled Cast and equate for a warrior of creation, he flips through it and finds this written and reads it out loud.
“The orbs symbolize ones path as a warrior of creation. The frozen cobalt orb of kind nobility and leadership. It’s element is of ice and flowing water. A stern path of kings who wield the power of ice inherently. Opposite is the Orb of fire or passion often called the orb of villainy as its passion that drives one to do selfish deeds. Fire and flame is the element of the warrior of passion.
Between these orbs is the emerald orb of nature or neutrality. It symbolizes the whimsy of wind and the pragmatic nature of stone it’s a contradiction that remains neutral to all things. The path of insanity and or intelligence is this orbs path.
Above these orbs is the path of life and wisdom the orb of light governs both light and life it symbolizes eternal wisdom. And below them all is the black orb of darkness. Death is but put one aspect of darkness. Gravity is yet another for death holds us all within its grasp. This path symbolizes death, decay, entropy and the enigma of patience and impatience.
The orbs of power symbolize a warrior’s path over their life their abilities and their potential.While there are misconceptions about them most live their lives by their primary orb while their secondary orb leads more to filling out their overall abilities.One can consider their orb or their path to be mostly set in stone while some can manage to work beyond their lot in life most are doomed to live within the boundaries of their primary orb.”””
Book project: COTLOP: Lost and abandoned on the lonely road of the stars.
(God I suck at naming ><)
Abbreviations: COTLOP :Lost1
Current word count: 16K
Anyways this one’s setup is a few centuries/eons down the road where I more often saw the character and his predicaments. He and a small floating glowing orb called Sandy,in power saving mode she is an AI derived from his personality , they are stuck adrift in space going about trying to get the heavily damaged ship mobile again so they can find parts to fully repair it.
Due to a lack of energy to constantly scan the ship they find the ship partially over run by the enemy Xai’irthi, a violent ruthless insectoid race who live to fight, devour and evolve and destroy everything including themselves if there is nothing else to play with. Their primary ability is putrid psionic energy and growing weapons out of their body. The Lord of Power fights them with his Sword of Light and Staff of Darkness. Eventually Sandy runs into trouble a Dark Force ship appears and manages to invade the ship. With the minions slowly being wiped out she transforms into tall Blonde and uses her heavy hand cannons, agility and twin energy pistol/whip/swords to fend off the invaders.
The only thing I am lacking in finishing it is some final edits and proof reading then I can take it to an editor and spend a year or so trying to fix it….
Some Pro images I had made.
The Lord of Power fighting "Evil" his darker personality.
First commission(ever) and I loved everything but the shoes!
From toying with idea's of darkness, corruption and bad-assaery I took some notes and over time refined them some its still an incoherent mess even for a world building project. However I do like it and that's saying something since other writing projects other than COTLOP kinda turn into one offs that I rarely revisit, tho some may turn up in COTLOP sometime or other. I really want to try a few image commissions with the theme's based around Lobo style stuff I know I know its all horrible over masculine BS but I can not help to think that body type would look cool with more chains.....
Going with some sort of normal joe to dark anti hero thingy with bounts of sanity. There's magic, cops, hell, demons and "The Institute" a multi government paranormal task force to find, control or destroy anything that would lose them reputation... even if most of it is mostly internal reputation...
I just hope I can stay away from teh grim dark.... "In absence of quality design's and reason there lives grim dark... and it will consume you...."... Or bore you to death like the Nolan films......(no I do not hate them that badly just they are not very good uses of the IP, as weak as Origins is its not that watered down....and I like GL more than MOS so there!.....)
First commission, after I Photoshopped more chains in its looking near perfect but want still want to tweak the design!
While not quite what I had in mind it's pretty good, I am generally not to fussy about the commissions I pay for art is rather subjective after all.
I am over here…no over there…no!!!...WHERE AM I!!!??? >< =0_o= LOL

Let’s face it anything worthwhile winds up here after awhile. LOL
I have a bunch of my writing at DA but the more I look at it I need to nuke most of it, I'll be scraping the poorly edited stuff into the scrap folder in time..

Ranting mostly and posting random writing stuff)
Do not really use it much, I do tend to post game mod pictures there since Facebook and photo bucket cap the damn things, more coplied finished work tends to get posted on DA.
Mainly for Fanlyric videos and game mods. That which YouTube has not randomly deleted.
I have cobbled one together, working on it now and then. Got a few things to upload but my upload speeds suck, rural 10mb DSL at 90$ a month FTL!!!!
