    Hey guys,

    Can't really thank you all enough for the support and kind words last update. It made a difference, and there were a lot of good thoughts I've been trying to keep in mind. I still have an intense dislike for dry updates like this, but I don't feel like I have to run to the bathroom every ten minutes while writing it. So that's an improvement! So, yeah. Thank you all. <3

    With a better mental state in mind, I've been doing a lot of practicing. I've set up study rotas with a friend so we can do regular art studies and exercises. Here's yesterday's study. The rather chronic hip pain I have is something I have to actually learn to work with; there's still a lot of art Carnal Souls will need in the future and I want to make sure I'm giving it the best I can make. There's also, as previously mentioned, the goal of using art to help Crimson out, so keeping myself sharp is important for that.

    Similarly I've been writing a lot, too. Discovering handwriting apps like Onenote has been pretty productive, and I've written a lot in the past few weeks toward a kind of novella I want to write that takes place before the game does. It's led already to a couple of quest ideas and spinoffs we can do in the game. I figure it's a good way to develop the world, build lore and my own understanding of the world, and if it turns out well perhaps it's something I can sell to inject some more funds into the project. If I can accomplish that, naturally it'll be free to most of the Indiegogo backers and certain patrons if I can work that out.

    Also, for those keeping track, I have the consultation for my MRI results this Wednesday. Doing my best not to think about it too much, but I'll update here to let you know what's up afterwards.

    So, in short, a lot of what I've taken away is that firstly, you are an amazing community (I mean look at Larry's Question Threads for more evidence). Secondly, I have a responsibility to keep myself as mentally healthy as possible; if not for myself, then for this project. Gotta make sure it's worth the wait, right?

    Love you all.
    Until next time!

    Keep yourselves in tip-top shape, my dudes, you're doin' wonderfully. But that does not mean you must neglect your health -- mentally or physically.

    And like Bloomin said above, thank you and the crew for not pulling a fast ball on us and running for the hills.

    From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

    I'm still not decided whether hands or eyes are the hardest to draw. And I still don't know how people manage photorealism.

    Good to hear you're on the mend. If you've been following LT news, people often worried Innoxia was pushing herself too hard and she finally burnt herself out last month. When I get sick I pretty much shut down, so I'm kinda jealous how much you're all still keepin' on even when waylaid.

    And hey, if Amazon's selling one-shot smut tracts, might as well see if you can make a few quid. :p

    I'm actually not planning on making it adult-rated. Things may be mentioned in passing, but for the moment my goal is more an exploration of the world and hopefully a fun story.

    Good god, those are some good-looking hands. Back when I DM'd my D&D sessions, brainstorming and writing a bit about the setting helped me come up with new ideas for story hooks and quests, and I'm excited to read and experience what you've written so far! Hope you get better soon, buddy. <3
