Project Update and Axel’s Facelift

Wow! Thanks to kind internet folks such as yourselves, our Kickstarter has just about met its 2nd stretch goal of $3000!

We’ve also updated two of our nearest stretch goal tiers to contain some more exciting incentives:

Help us meet these new goals while there’s time left! We’re down to the last 4 hours!

I have felt for a long time that as my competency with MangaStudio and the Wacom tablet have improved, some of the older characters have required a facelift of sorts. The biggest offender? Axel.

Check him out now!

I cleaned up the line art, and this time knew to “Export in Dimensions” rather than in pixels – creating smoother colors truer to how they were originally blended. Expect similar updates to Adin and Arinnel too 🙂

And as always, thanks a ton for the support! I know many of our readers have donated – if you could reblog this, you will gain an extra day of eternal gratitude! 😉

87% and counting!

I’m really excited to say that with 10 days left on our campaign, Legend of Lotus has reached 87% of its funding goal! Yay!!!

If you haven’t checked out our page yet, please do! We had a lot of fun making the promotional video, and we hope you have as much fun watching it. Even if you don’t pledge – or can only pledge a dollar or two – your support means the world, and spreading the word is just as big a help.

Another exciting development is that we are in talks with Donn and the lovely folks behind You Are Not the Hero in featuring their “non-hero” Petula for a brief cameo in Legend of Lotus. Donn approached us about this awesome idea – and J and I jumped on it immediately. For those unfamiliar, YANTH takes the classic tropes of old school RPGs and turns it on its head. You may remember Link, Cloud, and Squall taking a break out of defeating monsters to break into the homes and property of the people they purportedly want to protect, taking gold/rupees, and other useful belongings. When Petula encounters some “heroes” trying to pull a fast one on her, she vows to retrieve her stolen pendent, leading her on a quest of her own!

Petula, as will be seen in LoL

As you can see, Justin and I have a lot of reason to be excited about Legend of Lotus’ newest developments – and we have YOU to thank for it! Thanks, all!

 

 

*UPDATE*

Even before publishing this entry – in just the time it took to write it, we’ve already been bumped up to 90%. You guys – even if we had 100 $2 donations, we’d reach out goal – and this is the internet! This is the group that helped a guy make potato salad with like $40,000 dollars! Anything is possible!
