As promised, here's the updated version of my previous brief journal entry! The plan was to write this down yesterday evening, but it took me more than expected to upload my latest picture and was a bit too tired at that point...
So, once again holidays are over and I'm going back to my usual routine. The vacation itself has been quite pleasant all in all, in spite it was not according the vacation according to my original plans. But everything went smoothly, so smoothly that I feel like I left just a few days ago rather than a few weeks ago. Had a couple of boring days due to rainy weather, but I can't complain much considering I had plenty of time to relax (which is definitely good).
I took advantage of those rainy days to take a good look at the "Dragon Age: Library Edition vol. 1" I bought and I have to say I'm happy with this purchase. For those who don't know, this volume includes "The silent grove", "Those who speak" and "Until we sleep" DA comics all packed together in a single book with a hard cover. The pages are a bit bigger since there are notes on the margins with commentary from David Gaider and the comic authors. The volume also include some extra sketches of the preparatory work done for the comics and some extra cover art. Something interesting to buy for those Dragon Age fans who like comics and didn't have the chance to grab the three comics when they were issued as separate publications. This goes double if you are fans of Alistair, Varric or Isabela of course.
Bought also a copy of "Last Flight" after some debate with myself. I'm yet to finish this novel, but so far it's an interesting reading. I always liked the idea of the Wardens using griffons as steeds, so it's nice to read a novel centered on this topic and once I've finished the novel maybe I'll have a good idea of how griffon disappeared from Thedas...New works
Well, I didn't have the chance to work on new stuff during my holidays, but you might have seen I've already uploaded a new work (another picture of my au blood mage Bethany) and there are other pictures I've planned and/or I'm already working on.
As for models, I intend to get to work on those Templars and Qunari packs I mentioned. Also, I've been wondering whether a pack of random DA2 prop items might be of interest. There's quite an extensive collection of models I've extracted over time while working on my various pictures and maybe they might come in handy for other users too. Alternatively, because of their popularity (at least judging from favs and downloads), I might consider updating some of my earlier DA2 weapons packs (longbows, longswords and staves for instance) to fix/improve them to the extent possible. Unfortunately, both the props pack and the updates to the weapons model require quite some time, so I'd like to hear what you think before spending my time on a props pack or updated weapons pack that only very few people would be interested to see.
That's all for now folks!
