World of Immensum Weekly Update (Week of 6/26/2017)

I've been trying to think of a way to keep you guys updated on the World of Immensum and what's going on as far as its development for a while now. Up until this point, following me on Instagram was probably the easiest way (@worldofimmensum), but I wanted a way to collect everything into one place.  Since I've always loved writing, a blog seems like the best way to attempt this. I hope this works out the way it did in my head.

Art Updates

 
 
  • I've recently decided to revisit The Elements Project, since it is an idea I'm still pretty excited about. Despite my style changing so drastically since the last time I worked on this project, I decided to pick up where I left off and draw Lithium (shown above). Eventually, I'll probably end up going back to redraw Hydrogen and Helium, but for now I'm going to enjoy the process of designing new characters.
  • While we're on the topic of The Elements Project, I've also finished the research for the next character element - Beryllium. I have a few ideas whirling around in my head based on that research, but I have yet to sit down and properly thumbnail the character.
  • Moving on to art that is not related to The Elements Project, I completed a piece this week that will be up, along with its backstory, sometime next week. I put a lot more thought into this piece than I have in the past, so I think it turned out particularly well - I'm excited to share that with all of you. It will likely be up on my Patreon for early access on Monday or Tuesday, then on the site a few days later.
  • Finally, I have begun planning for a new piece I'm working on, including thumbnails and color studies. I will most likely begin work on this piece tomorrow.

Writing Updates

  • The main writing update I have for this week is that I realized the novella I was working on, Binary Tears, needed a complete re-haul. I didn't do a whole lot of planning before I began writing, and every time I've tried this method I've realized that it isn't for me. As a response to that realization, I've been spending the past few days putting together a plan to rewrite the story from scratch. I'm planning to finish the first draft during Camp NaNoWriMo this July. Hopefully this will be the first Camp NaNo I complete (with a 20,000 word goal). 
  • If you're interested in seeing the playlist I have created for Binary Tears, you can find that at the link below. There's only three songs thus far, but that's likely to change in the near future.  https://open.spotify.com/user/thisisjordanslife/playlist/4wGqvYzIo2kwxeAWnkrvbp

Video Updates

  • I find that my main problem with videos stems from the actual finishing of them. I currently have three (five if you count exclusively raw footage) videos in varying stages of completion, two for the main channel and three for the side channel. I'm hoping to get at least one video for each channel finished in the next week.

So, as you can see, I've definitely kept myself busy this week. I have plans to continue these projects and various WIPs in the weeks that follow, so be sure to check back next week for another update!
