I, for one, cannot believe we are 20 episodes away from the end of Origins. I really can’t. This all started off as a project, a hobby if you will, to keep me busy and keep the creative juices in my brain flowing. Here we are, four years. I repeat, FOUR years since the conception of the story. I didn’t think it would get this far. 30 Episodes in. I’m a HUGE procrastinator and my own biggest critic. I believe I’m not much of a writer, and I’m not. Really.
But I can honestly say that after 29 episodes, I’m dying to know myself what happens next. As an artist, when you create something out of nothing and put your all into it, it comes alive and develops itself. I believe this 100%. It’s happening right now, with Origins. All these characters that have jumped out of my head and into Photoshop and Word, began writing the story themselves. They began to narrate to me, they showed me what they looked like, their individual personalities and how they’ve grown since Episode 1. Now I can’t wait to find out what happens to them in the next chapter of the story…
Now that I’ve got that out of the way, prepare for a double whammy in the next two weeks. You’ll be getting Episode 30 on the 4th of October and, wait for it, Episode 31 on the 11th of October. Yup. Double whammy.
On a different note, an ‘Art of’ Digimon Origins book is also in the works. This will catalogue pretty much all the artwork I’ve done for Origins, from concepts, first drafts to completed and even abandoned designs. Character profiles: the original Creators, the new Creators, the Holy Angels, the Shadow Lords, the Digimon of Origin, the tamers, the Guardians etc… the book will cover it all.
It will be in eBook format, to enjoy on any device (probably), but unfortunately it won’t be for free. On the other hand it won’t be ridiculously priced either. It will also feature Origins art from Guest Artists, who get a small fee from the sale of the ebooks for their contribution.
Also, I’ve been thinking of compiling the entire series into one ebook once it’s completed, but right now I’m just toying with the idea…
Anyways see you guys next week for Episode 30!
