Thanks again all...
This book is a perfect fit for a video game. It'd just be a shame at this point not to do one. And so are my friends and I. Dave went to school for 3d modeling and Eli for coding. Neither were using their skills at their jobs. Put them together with my character designs and story and this team of 3 is also a perfect fit for video game development. But they do all the heavy lifting. Mostly due to the fact....
...that the book is late and I'm not okay with that. I owe you guys an amazing book as soon as I can get it to you or sooner even. I'm working on making it deserving of the overfunding you guys all gave it. So although it's grown a ton in size I didn't want that to change the due date much. This will be out to all of you this Summer and the video game project won't change that. The best thing I can due for either project is make an amazing book. The game has helped a lot with viewing the storyline in a different light and I've made a few changes to characters and story that have made the book better already. All in all this game will prove to be a very good thing for the Graphic Novel and will bring you guys an even better book.
All this happened because you.
Really nothing Tokyo Wonderland could exist if you all didn't give it all that overwhelming support. If this Game manages to reach its goal all of you will be thanked in the Credits of the game. That, and I've created a special place just for you inside the actual game. The only 1 village in Wonderland will be populated with only you original Tokyo Wonderland backers. Your names on walls, scrolls, tombstones, and store names. All the people in the village will bear your faces. As many of you as I can get in. Just a cool little thank you to see yourself in a video game.
This month also comes with a Very cool Art contest over on DeviantArt. The contest will be held all month long and will greatly beef up the Art Gallery in the book. So although I was going to keep them as much a secret as I could I have to show the characters in order for others to draw them. So here's the quick Character reference for a few characters I've been holding back on : The Cheshire Cat and The Queen of Hearts....
Can you stand on Your Head
if you can't I'm sure she'd be more than willing to help you take it off...
Really excited about all things Tokyo Wonderland and I've more and more to show you so that you will be as excited as me. Check out the game if you've a sec. I think it's rather cool. I'll be back soon with more updates and cool art to show.
Really can't tell you all how much you've improved my life. Thank you all again...
Just a quick update before the holidays....Things are moving well and the book is getting better a better as it goes along....Can't thank you guys enough for giving me a chance to work on this book and I'm still thinking of ways to give you all cool stuff in return for all the support on it...so just know I've still a few Aces up my sleeve...
While although there's not been a lot of updates on my end it's simply because I'm getting through the pages....The book doubled due to all of you guys backing the project nearly %600 of goal....Don't worry though...they'll be a ton of updates right before the book gets in your hands...so enjoy the silence while it lasts cause you'll be sick of me by the end...
For those who pledged $200 or more please keep those cameras out this Holiday season and take a few pictures of yourself....Please choose which character piece you'd like to be Knights, Rooks, or Bishops...which side of the board you like to play for Red or White.... I'd love a 2 pictures of you 1 from the front and 1 from the side...No smiling if possible...I can work with whatever pictures you have lying around but that simply would help me to make sure the characters really look best like you....I'll be in contact with each of you over the next month or so to work with you on what character traits you'd like to have... (costume, powers, weapons)
Cool Projects to peep out
Make sure to check out the Backer Forum for a few more updates including new songs and a few alternative costumes..... http://tokyowonderland.forumotion.com/
The pin-up section of the book will turn out ever better then I had thought before....a few are on the Backer forum but I'd like to leave you guys with the newest one.....
And that is what Awesome looks like....Awesome pic, Awesome Artist, Awesome guy to work with... Let Elsevilla know what you think on his DA page - http://elsevilla.deviantart.com/
