Naruto has been too busy with his sights set on training and saving Sasuke one last time to talk to Hinata. Still Kishi is disappointing his fans by neglecting this and Kurenai's pregnancy!

@FunFunTime: He will, eventually! :D | @MetalGirly: So do I! But we have to give Kishi some time. He takes longer to do romance because it's hard for him! (he said it himself)

Hey you, with the face

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 21, 2015, 6:14 PM

^Couldn't think of a better title.

Just wanted to check in and kinda explain why I've been so quiet lately. For the past...uh...4 days? 5 days? About that long, I have been without internet because the router, quite literally, died. For whatever reason it would no longer accept power no matter where it was plugged in and obviously if it can't turn on it can't work. So we spent what seemed like forever waiting for a replacement router to be shipped.

But! Aside from that, I also wanted to reassure you that THE LEGEND OF LAUREL is still well underway! I've made lots of concept sketches, done TONS of research (I just wish I had some spare money to get Hyrule Historia), and am currently plotting out the THIRD chapter of the series! My goal is to open a Kickstarter soon that will hopefully fund the creation of my first-ever graphic novel! Just like real manga, the book will contain about 4-5 (probably 5) chapters of the Zelda fancomic, along with additional concept art and goodies in the back. After struggling for so many years with false-starts and self-doubt, I've finally decided to put all of my focus in ONE SERIES. After a shocking vote, The Legend of Laurel was selected to be first, so that's what I'm working on almost exclusively.

I'm still working on commissions, and am actually building up my portfolio and stuff to try and turn commissions into a more regular thing. Along with that, I've also been working on more and more sketches and drawings for my series of Fanarts in order to build up a good selection to be sold when I go to my VERY FIRST CONVENTION AS A VENDOR.

The wifey and I have been going to Farmer's Market for supplementary (and sometimes primary) income, and it's really inspired me to try and put myself out there more as an artist. For a long time I just had the mindset that I needed to work on things 'in secret' for the most part and that one day, when I was "good enough" I would just start making things professionally and eventually they would catch on. Of course, I've now realized that the best way to get your name out there is to...well...PUT IT OUT THERE.

So I'm done waiting around for things to take off. I'm done planning and plotting and second-guessing. I have the stories built, I have the art skills (at least enough not to be an embarassment), so I'm taking the plunge and going for it. I know that 'taking the plunge' is a common term, but it really DOES feel like it. I just have to hold my breath, jump in, and hope I don't drown. It's scary, nerve-wracking, and stressful. But I know that this is the only way to chase my dreams.

That's all for now :) Thanks for reading and I hope you guys are doing well.

If any of you wanted to commission me, feel free to email me or send me a note here on DA. My email is
My prices have never been lower, and every little bit helps me out a ton :nod:

So your PMD Redux project, is that you finishing up your PMDE teams? Or redoing all the already posted comics? I just want to know what I'm looking forward to cause anything would be great!
JakeNova Featured By Owner May 26, 2015  Student Digital Artist
It's both actually! Basically my intention is to tell my PMD-E stories like they were meant to be told. Full color comics for the most part, with some illustrated stories, and EVERY team's story told from beginning to end :)
Songal Featured By Owner May 26, 2015
YAY!! I love your stories and how deep the emotions get, both in your writings and your comics. Plus I want to see April more I adore that hyper shiny Deerling!
JakeNova Featured By Owner May 26, 2015  Student Digital Artist
