HUGE NEWS!

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 12, 2017, 12:35 PM
So I Just wanted to make a quick journal to share some BIG news with you all! As you know as a company, I've been focusing on my brand presence lately and positioning Astria Legends to have a better foundation going forth. 

One of the missions of Astria Legends is to cultivate creativity and help creators visions become reality. As a part of this, Astria Legends has formed a partnership with Upland Avenue Publishing Group (the publisher behind the second edition of the Exodus Novel), in which we have our OWN imprint. 

Read the Article here: 

Basically this means that I have the freedom to publish all the novels, comics, etc... under the imprint. I'll also be able to offer them all internationally (which was a problem for me in the past) because UAPG will handle all the distribution. And, once I'm ready, I'll have the ability to take submissions from others to publish under the imprint :)

THIS IS ONE OF MY BUSINESS GOALS COME TRUE!

SO first up is a re-printing of the current comic issues in new fancy DELUXE editions. So look forward to that :)

And how have you all been?

Wait wut? I'm alive?

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 21, 2017, 8:14 AM
I know ... my poor gallery is collecting so much dust, but I AM still alive! 
I'm working on a lot of things behind the scenes (psst.. my Patrons on Patreon www.patreon.com/astrialegends get sneak peeks of all of them)
Dawn of Unity will return on Aug 12th... I'm working on a buffer for it as well as preparing it to be exclusive within StartFaire magazine.
I'm thinking about posting the first part of Clandestine Dimension on here, since it's on hiatus and being worked into something else extra special. But it would be cool to see if you guys would want it to be continued as a comic as well. 
I've also been slowly revamping the main website, so look for more updates as time goes on. Trying to make it a lot cleaner and easier to navigate...plus I have a really awesome template theme now.
Lastly, in other non-art news, there are a couple really exciting new things i'm trying right now that i'm super hopeful for! I'm investing in all areas of my life. 

So how are you all doing?! Miss you guys so much!

Running in the Hamster Wheel

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 24, 2017, 1:35 PM
That is how I feel right now lol. Sorry I haven't actually been here but I'm really trying to get back to everything. If life could just leave me alone for 2 minutes...

Have a major personal situation I'm dealing with that has recently taken up a lot of my time. I'm so thankful for my Pastor, as he's been a GREAT help through all of it. Hopefully that will settle down sometime soon so I can get back to focusing on my own goals.

But though I've been feeling like a running hamster, my bestie, baby cousin and, surprisingly, an old friend have really helped me keep my sanity throughout. Its wonderful to have those friends that you can always call on. I promise I'd have pulled my hair out by now if it wasn't for them.

So let's talk Good News...I have some fun things coming for you guys (provided i get the time to DO them). I have lots of new ideas :D In essence Dawn of Unity, Love Shattered will make a comeback, new videos, new non-comic artwork and some new crafts... (and probably other things i'm forgetting right now). 

Also I've finally been able to start back teaching dance and doing choreography at my church and I'm really excited for that. And I'll be teaching some online creativity classes for girls 7 to 12 starting in August. 

So a lot is going on but it didn't want you to think I've forgotten about you all! I have a lot to catch up and comment on I'm sure :) How have you all been?

Welcome to 2017!

Wed Feb 8, 2017, 9:44 AM



I know, I'm late... but my December and January was spent in the chaos that is moving to a new place. Yes I'm in my brand new house and am slowly getting adjusted to it! I've missed Christmas, my Birthday AND New Years doing all of this lol. Soon I should be getting back to normal with updating. My Showroom and Craft rooms are coming together! The guy came and installed the first phase of shelving in those rooms which turned out to be an interesting experience in itself.

Anyway, I'm having a ton of fun decorating and I'm blogging my progress. I'll post links to those as they are complete. But it will be great to get back to arts and crafts...there are so many projects I have planned for the year!

BTW all those who have given me Birthday gifts and Wishes and comments I am not ignoring you! I'll be getting to commenting on those soon! I've seen and LOVE them all =)

OH! As for the Poll... the results across the board were pretty even, so I've decided that the common Astrian attacks will not be named, but the signature moves, and the higher level rarely used but have massive effect moves will be named. So fair compromise I think :D

All in all, life's been interesting and fun right now and I have a lot of hope for the year! Thus begins my big transformation I've been planning for once I was moved in. Transformation in thinking, desires, work ethic, appearance and more. And its been working so far for the most part :)

Motto for the year: Classy Confident and Content Single Woman

Birthday and More

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 15, 2016, 8:47 AM
Thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes!!! I felt so loved :) A coworker took me to lunch and we hung out, she even got me a gift! That was fun and then did a video chat with another friend I hadn't talked to in forever. Made a wonderful birthday.

Of course, because my birthday is at the end of the year its always a time for me to reflect and see where I want to be in the new year. Since i'm actually starting a new chapter of my life next year with moving into my first house and paying off my car, I want to put myself in a better state to be able to fully enjoy it. So I've been researching thought conditioning as well as motivational articles for where I am in life right now. The goal is to learn to be happy and content where I am in life right now so that I no longer want my deepest desire. This desire/dream I realize is toxic to me and I want 2016 to be the last year I'm sad and depressed over it. The thought conditioning helps me redirect the sad feelings into something more positive, and the articles give me goals to have to make the most of my new chapter. Also praying the desire away will go a long way too.

So that's one part of my 2017 transformation, the other being living a healthier lifestyle and learning to love the way I look (meaning getting rid of all my "granny" clothes lol). I've already started subscribing to a place to give me quick and easy healthy recipes so I can hopefully cook successfully lol.

But yeah, hoping that 2017 is a very happy and wonderful year!

Where have I been? Again...

Journal Entry: Thu May 19, 2016, 7:26 AM


So many things have been going on in my life right now, its kinda crazy. Most of it are things I really can't believe I'm actually doing. The busy meter spiked way up and is now slowly working its way back down so I can get back to all the projects that unexpectedly dropped off the past few weeks.

There are two big things going on now. One is that I have a regular kiosk in an actual mall-like store. So I did my first weekend there and am still trying to get acclimated to the whole process. The weekend went REALLY well and there is a lot of promise for me. Plus the people I'm working around are really nice and helpful. I had a few people ask when I would be back and if I'm there often so I'm building up my reputation there already. I'll be there this weekend too and hopefully things will go a lot smoother. After that I don't go back until the third weekend of June (and I can get back to my non craft related stuffs).

The other huge thing is...well... I've finally purchased my first home. The one thing I said that if I ever did would mean that I'm truly giving up on love. I originally hoped that I would have been married when I did this but God doesn't go by our plans. I don't quite know how I feel about the whole thing yet as there is a lot of mixed emotions. But I knew it was time. And I'm glad that I was strong enough to go through with it. Things like this scare me to death. But now that I do own a home I'll be a lot less inclined to want to bring someone new into my life (which is why I didn't want to do it before I was married). For me its that step into established independence, at least that is what it feels like to me (like the whole becoming a woman or something) and I feel like its my stake into singleness.  But on the other hand I'm starting to look forward to it a lot more...I mean I'll have a CRAFT room AND a SHOWROOM. I can stop working from my bed and have an actual desk and things.

There is also a third thing, but I'll reveal that one later provided everything goes smoothly :) So all three of these running in parallel for the past few weeks. But things should slow down a bit and I can work on pretty stuffs for you all soon!

How have you all been? I've missed you!!! :hug:

Road called on

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 17, 2016, 1:03 PM
Thanks for all the support on my first video! I've been rethinking my future and I'm REALLY enjoying these new projects! I'll be using a new blog on my website to really talk about the projects I'm doing, and I'll link it in a future journal once I really get it all set up.

As for rethinking my future, I've been analyzing my status in two roads in my life...the roads that lead to my two biggest dreams. Let's be honest... by the time you are my age 90% of the time you are either engaged or married. (don't know how old i am its on my profile...anyway) and if you aren't...people start thinking something is wrong with you or that there is a reason that no one wanted you so they don't want to date you anyway. So while I've been waiting and planning for that road of my life it also seems that God is very silent that way. On the other hand, God is being very VERY vocal down the path of my career dreams especially with all the things that have happened recently (my picture in costume was in our local magazine!) so I'm just going to focus and go down the road God is speaking in.

With that said I had a separate savings account for my "future wedding". I took that money out to use it for some ad marketing to get my audience for Astria legends growing. Changed the account from wedding to custom car graphics. One of the things I've always wanted to do as far as Astria Legends is get my characters airbrushed on my car...so I'm putting that in my plans for the future since it would be expensive. I'll pay off my car in 2020 and will finally try and get a house (really didn't want to have a house by myself but whatever) a year or two after then try for the custom designs in 2025. Basically, like a friend said to me once and I agree with my own life, I've been putting my life on hold for that other road for too long. I'll be 40 before I know it and so I need to just get my life going on my own.

look forward to a lot of exciting things coming!

YouTube Series Revealed and MORE!

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 5, 2016, 7:53 PM

For those of you who have been wondering what the YouTube video series I have been talking about was...well the first Episode has finally been uploaded! I feel so accomplished... I haven't seen anyone do something like this before so I'm happy to be able to bring it to you :) Questions that were not answered here WILL be answered in the back of the next print comic. So your questions are not in vain XD




P.S. It wasn't originally supposed to have the Great Orchestra in it...but my tablet broke in the middle of doing the art for the Discover Astria segment and well... I had to change it to something I already had the art for x3

Looking for VOICE ACTORS!

Since I am doing the YouTube videos now and I have a few other projects planned...its time for me to get and firm up a serious VA Team. This is your chance to be one of the Astria Legends characters!!
If you are interested, all the information can be found here: VA Tryouts
Characters will be added as necessary, also the ones marked 'coming soon' will be filled in soon as i'm home and its NOT storming and tornadoing and crap.

Spectrum Poll

Please vote if you haven't already, I have something really nice planned for the second Episode... because I want to formally introduce the Astrians to you as well as some interesting important tidbits about the Spectrums. spoliers?

Its COMING!!!

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 25, 2016, 6:13 AM
This is the last week of me working behind the scenes before you start to see what I've been up to. Admittedly I didn't get as far along as I would have hoped, being that my holiday vacation was cut very short but I am still able to get some things done. Most of the time I'd spent catching up on everything art related that I'd fallen behind on with the goal of then getting ahead. The catching up I did...the getting ahead well not so much. I'll have to see how far I get this week.  I mainly wanted to get myself in a position where I can be a little more consistent...
i.e. fit a bunch of new projects in my already project filled life >.>

Basically, I am pushing myself to be more serious about Astria Legends as my company and put the love and care into it that I've been lacking. Procrastination...the bane of my existence XD
With that said, I made myself a checklist and schedule and gave myself Saturdays off so I don't get burnt out. I'm so excited!

Some things to look forward to:

The comic is coming back! That's the MAIN thing I was trying to get ahead on. The next page will go live on Jan 30th and hopefully a page every Saturday after. My Patrons on Patreon get the comic pages ahead of time (this page is already live for them).

SAVE THE DATE: FEBRUARY 22, 2016

This marks the start of a very special event and all of you will be able to participate in, no matter where you are in the world. And there will be a grand prize giveaway for those who follow the event all the way through. And no...its not a dA event... :XD:

YOUTUBE SERIES
Last thing I'll mention is if you haven't subscribed to my YouTube it may become something you might want to do as I plan on starting a very original series on there. And by original I mean that I haven't seen anyone else post something like this before. I'm hoping for the first episode to be uploaded at the end of February. This is something you don't want to miss!

If the series is a hit, I will also start a companion series and bring some other people in. Well...you'll see what I mean when the series starts.


This is not all that I have planned, but just the stuff that will be coming the soonest.

WHAT HAVE YOU ALL BEEN UP TO? HAVE ANY PROJECTS YOU ARE WORKING ON?

Happy 2016!

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 8, 2016, 5:20 PM
Though my previous post was sad, I'm happy to say that right now I am feeling pretty good. I've decided that this year... I'm getting back to ME. 2015 overall wasn't a good year for me and in certain aspects of my life, ended REALLY bad. But it took those experiences to make me rethink my goals and dreams. I've been studying about Faith and Hope and God has been really talking to me though it...And now I got a new attitude! There are two big things that I'm seriously praying for to happen THIS year. The difference this time is, I'm activating the Faith behind my hopes and investing into what I want. And God has already shown me that I'm on the right track!

I've spent the past few days getting my year plan together of all the projects I want to do and goals I'm working towards. I've been investing more into Astria Legends. Though you haven't seen much in my gallery yet, trust me its coming!

On a side note :iconredcartpet: will be getting a revamp. It will be the new home of the Wings of Promise features I used to do as well as home of the awards I'll be giving to original stories, species, and concepts as a way of giving back to you for all you have done in support of me. So go and join it!

What are your 2016 goals? I'd like to keep them in prayer :D

Where I'm headed

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 9, 2015, 9:19 AM
So in a nutshell, I've been having a lot of before my birthday what am I doing with my life depressing conversations with myself... and as such my gallery is still a bit...well... dusty. Right now I feel like a hamster running in a wheel while everyone else is actually in hamster balls actually going places in their lives or have a lot of new blessings happening in their lives. I feel like my life is just stuck in one spot, as has been for years it seems. Anyway, a lot of mixed emotions about my life and where I am in it. In two weeks I'll be getting my holiday break though! I'm REALLY looking forward to it because I'm so burnt out at work.

Where I'm headed

In light of my depressing conversations with myself, the only aspect of my life that I can work harder at (is that possible at this point?) is Astria Legends. So with my big break coming up I'm in the process of trying some new things (to promote AL) and getting myself into a more regular schedule of things.

So what's new?

 - You can now vote for the Dawn of Unity Comic daily on Top Web Comics.
 - Going to start posting comic pages early on my Patreon as well as posting more unpaid posts.
 - I'm going to breathe life into my Youtube and desktop streaming (providing i can figure out the software I need to use). So more streams as I work on the games, some little interviews with some of the characters, and some other things like that. Basically a lot of videos to help you get a bit more immersed in the world.
 - Kicking off the new stuff with a special event for my Birthday since its 12/12 and i've been on dA for 12 years :) lookout for that soon!
 - Using my Tumblr for blogs as well as pictures.
 - utilizing my email newsletter lists and sending updates to it.

Regular Schedule?

Yes. I need to get back on a regular schedule of :
  • df
- Exercising
- A DOU comic page a week
- Patreon Silver Tier Rewards (one a month)
- Studying my bible
- playing with my rat family!
none of the above I do regularly at the moment (or at all in some cases) But before I get to it I'm doing a serious cleaning of my apartment and websites and computer and everything so I can really just focus when I'm on my vacation.

Is there anything you want to know more about with regards to Astria Legends? Anything you want to see? Neat ideas you'd like to see done? Let me know in the comments!

What am I up to?

Thu Nov 12, 2015, 9:18 AM
I know I haven't been active on here lately... but I sure need to be lol my gallery is getting really dusty! But I have been busy!

Craft Fairs!

Its craft fair season at the moment so a lot of my time and effort is going into to working those. The one this past weekend was one of the BEST I've ever done. I made a milestone amount at it! I think I've finally figured out how to present and sale myself and my brand. I have two 3 foot tall cardboard cutouts of Red and Dymona, plus a puppet of a new character that appears in Exodus and being in costume really caught people's attention! This Saturday I'll be at one where I believe my booth is on the stage. It will be a big challenge as last year I had the same place and people very seldom came up on the stage to peruse the booths. I had the option not to have the same spot but I think with the cardboard cutouts and my puppet I can bring enough attention to get people to come up. I also bought new display pieces so my items can look better. I'm really excited. Including this weekend, I have three more fairs to do this year. I'm still working on posting some of new crafts.

Projects!

Now as things begin to sortof calm down from the fair prep (I only need to really restock whatever I sell as opposed to making a ton of stuff), there are three main projects I'm planning on getting back to:
The main comic! I know you guys have been waiting forever for me to get my butt back in gear! Well I'm planning on it! I have a few pages already sketched out. I want to finish the second issue by the end of the year.
Dawn of Unity Guide Vol I : This is a brand new project I want to also complete by the end of the year. Basically its a quick introduction to all the characters that have appeared in Genesis and Exodus. Like a page per character. This is my chance to draw all the characters especially the ones that never get drawn lol. I want to offer it as a companion book to the novels early next year. Depending on how long it takes I may just split the guide up by book.
Games : There are TWO games that I've been working on off and on under the radar that you will be hearing a bit more about. One is the Trading Card Game that I've actually been working on for a few years now... the concepts have been in multiple betas as they have changed and matured. The other is an RPG game that I've FINALLY figured out a plot for and can actually start working on it. Both of these are not on a timeline and are fun side things I have always wanted to do.
Zaphkiellane
did a cute concept of the main character for the RPG:
Dream Defender by Zaphkiellane'
Are you excited already?!
I am looking for beta testers for the RPG, specifically people who will youtube themselves playing the demo because I want to see/hear actual reactions as the game is played. Let me know if you are interested.


So What have you guys been up to? Any big projects in the works? I miss you all :D



I'm still alive!

Thu Oct 8, 2015, 9:09 AM
I know my gallery looks pretty dusty, but unfortunately that's what happens when you are on "highly suggested" overtime at work (we aren't allowed to say 'mandatory' even though that's what it is). So I've been completely exhausted most days by the time I get home.

That ... and I've been majorly distracted by Zaphkiellane  who was nice enough to come visit me a few times and take me places :meow: He's a sweetheart and talented and INTELLIGENT!!! This guy knows a little about everything. I like learning from him. We are going to be doing some really neat collaborations. Plus he gave me "the most romantic thing ever" ... a couple pet rats :XD: yes it was a term of endearment trust me They are the cutest! Andromeda and Orion. Though Orion is a clumsy shy scaredy-cat and won't come near me. Dromey on the other hand, is sweet and playful, though she seems to like to eat my carpet. They both think my long nails are food. Zaph says its cuz I always smell good lol. Its nice not to come home to an empty apartment for a change.
Oh and Zaph made them into characters!
Beatnik Rodents by ZaphkiellaneAren't they just the most adorable rodents?

Other than that I am getting ready for my first crafts fair which none of my novels have come in time for. Annoying. Its one of two biggest events that I participate in. I have a lot of new crafts that I'm going to test run there though: little stuffed felt bunnies (baby versions of my Harmony Hares, which I may just be bringing back), Vinyl Figurines of Alex and Red (though I put a bunny tail on Red in error... but its stuck there now), painted wine bottles, and something new I'm working on now which are Blind Bags! They will have a bottlecap keychain in them since I refused to go out and buy new things for the bags and was determined to use something I already had. I'm thinking about putting a trading card in there too. So I guess this time my table will actually be crafty lol. Since i really can't push the novels i'll hopefully get some more Patrons.

Also still in the planning phases of some games I want to start building. Planning on getting an upgrade of both my main video game software as well as the new RPG maker software.
I also need to continue with my comic... bah so behind.
New art type stuff...sometime soon. Promise :D

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
This I have to split between two deviants... first Catluckey This lady is simply AMAZING! She inspires me, and I really do look up to her. She's given me sound christian based advice, proven to be a wonderful friend and helps me to keep my hope and faith.

My favorite memories are the silliest comment conversations I get in with my friends on here when we are in character. They really brighten my day! I laugh so hard!! When people really know your characters enough to respond to them...thats when you know you are loved lol



Been So Long XD

Thu May 14, 2015, 6:20 AM

Been a while since I've updated...

Mainly because there isn't really anything pertinent to update. My life has been pretty much...well... monotonous to say the least.

Thanks to FireballStardraco I now want to give Pink a brother XD because of a comment discussion about how Red and Silver are overprotective of Pink since she's a girl. Only doing this would throw a wrench in all kinds of things but hey I like a challenge!

Exodus II just received its clear to be released from my previous publisher (had to square things away with the first edition with them) I'm planning to send the final manuscript in on Aug 1st! So the big release will be sometime in September!! SO Excited! and so glad it will be finally done... From what happens in this book makes me realize Book 3 might be mushier than I previously expected
o.0 I don't know if I'm ready for that hahaha.
 But its a very sweet mushy... even though I never planned on my series having much in the way of romance
Plus I have to make up for the fact that some might not like me much after reading Exodus II :paranoid:
 After the first I have 3 books I want to complete, the two illustration commissions and the 2nd Issue of DoU. Yes, I'm sorta drowning myself in my art/writing and things because I have no life and don't want to think about it =p

In September I'm going to start a NEW PROJECT that I'm SO excited about! A couple weeks ago our Science Museum was having a class to teach how to do it... and I have all the software I need. It's going to be SO awesome!!! Trying to finish open projects before then so I can really start. Also might be having something else really BIG coming down the pipe...right now its still tentative...

Also, there are a few NEW products coming too! That I've been sorta collecting undercover for a while, you are going to love them!

When I tell you that for the past 2 months I've really been like a hermit...well...I have. You can probably tell by all the dust in my gallery...
I've been stuck in my cave trying to write Exodus II. Sufficed to say I can FINALLY breathe. Its around 46K words and at 20 chapters. Pretty amazing for 2 months huh? It's now been sent off for professional editing and Ill be doing some editing myself in about a week... I just really need to put it down for a while. That plus a very weather intensive weekend has my whole body out of whack. >.< IhatethespringIhatethespringIhatethespring

But I'm SOOOO excited to finally get back to ART! You have no idea how bad my art withdrawals are right now.
I've been craving to do some references about different elements in my world from the flora to the fauna to some of the characters. I came up with a lot of new things while writing Exodus that I would like to sketch out and flesh out.
I'm also going to do like I did with the Genesis Cover and show the Exodus II Cover as a WIP that you can follow throughout the process.
And I'll be able to get back to the comic! Even without my outside deadline I used to have, I want to get back to trying to post a new page each week.

I also had a performance in the middle of the chaotic dangerous weather episodes. It was the first time I've ever had more than 5 minutes of stage time dressed in costume as Red. It was good practice, even though I messed up BIG time. (Thankfully there was hardly anyone there watching because it took the band 15 minutes to break down and most of the crowd left. Nice thing was I got to try out my created language. Had them singing along in the astrian's native language! That was such fun. But it showed me what I need to polish before my show in August.

What else? I think that's it. Just trying to get back on track.

What am I doing?

I know I've been pretty quiet lately but I guess that's what happens when you have deadlines lol. These past few weeks have felt like climbing up out of a deep valley and I'm just starting to see the precious sunlight again. I feel like God is up to something, even if I don't know what it is. Especially since last week I had so much weight on me and God just worked it all out in His own way. I've had one of those "life changing moments" earlier this month that still has me in awe and just breathtaking wonder at the mysterious way God works in my life.

But that doesn't explain why I've been quiet. I've lately been hard pressed writing Exodus II and I'm happy to say that I did make it within 95% completion by the original deadline of April 1st. I got a two week extension so I can properly go back and polish the writing so it can be released by early July. But first a break. This weekend I'll be indulging myself in art (I feel withdrawals lol) before getting back in the saddle and writing.

I have a lot of hope for this year. Even with getting over some disappointments and things, I still have hope. I'm still dealing with things, but I still have hope.
And I do feel different, in a good way. As some of you, who are closest to me, know, the spring is the worst time for me emotionally but I am so far doing well.
But God is still Good.

I can't explain the feelings I have right now, though uncertain and anxious, exciting yet empty, alert yet in awe... They all tell me one thing... God is up to something. And I'll be (somewhat) patiently waiting to see what it is.
