Journal
Saturn, Titan and Rhea
I love to do astrophotography, even though I only have a bridge camera to do it with! I have the Fujifilm Finepix HS50 EXR, which has a tiny sensor, but because of that, a giant longest focal length of a whopping 1000 mm equivalent, which is great for astrophotography :D
I've made photos of the moon obviously, the sun (with a 10 stops filter in front of the lens, don't worry), Jupiter and its moons, Venus, Mars, the ISS, and.. Saturn :D
Saturn is today's topic, as it's now closer to Earth than it'll be in about a year time, and it has its rings facing as much to us as they can.
I stayed up quite a bit later than I normally would, and finally had a great view of Saturn at its highest again.
Here's the result:

Saturn, bringer of age (at 400% scale to make it easier to see)
Now, a shot like this isn't straight from the camera. Firstly, I shoot in raw only. I also use a technique called 'Lucky imaging'. Instead of just taking a photo, you take dozens of photos

After writing down the base notes about my version of Gadget Boy that to the Iron and Steel-verse is Jake Anatech. Thoughts having brewed in my head for a few days, I started writing probably around 10pm ending the session at 11:40pm on September 24th 2016. Most of that writing became an altered section of the first chapter of Devil's Blood.

Wanting to flesh out his character for the story I was brainstorming. I came up with an origin and decided it had to be written down hence, from Darkness to Silver Light ( finished 10-2-16 ). Figuring the GB gang's presence meant it should effect elsewhere to the AU. I started figuring out what had to be altered in the then still being produced Iron and Steel webcomic. Sure it had been outlined in full earlier but that didn't mean minor changes couldn't be made to it.

The urge to write another GB story hit me not long after finishing Silver Light and I started figuring out B-Side Tracks. Even how that story could be used in more than one respect to the overall AU. How it would help also Devil's Blood gaining more and more details as I continued outlining it. Even after finishing B-Side Tracks ( 1-8-17 ) I felt more could be added to the GB side plus a note which really drove home a fifth large story had started being worked on. The animatic, Prologue: The Interrogation ( 1-20-17 ). The only story short made in that presentation medium. After that finally got completely which took a while since it was a collaborative project. I started quick on to writing Accepting and Escaping Tomorrow ( 6-18-17 ). That taking a long time to produce had to do with the fact Iron and Steel was coming out at the same time of writing it. Also that story, the third GB one in prose had to be more carefully crafted than normal. It had to lock it's puzzle piece snugly into being worked on fourth story but also the coming fifth story.

Tidbits thrown into Iron and Steel to have the coming story work, done already. I just kept thinking about one last piece of information that needed to get out there. But tack it on to the start of Devil's Blood? Have it as some extreme short to be produced before the fifth story started having more done on it? Nah, to either idea. That's how the fourth large story got it's epilogue. Iron and Steel ending happening on 10-3-17.

For months I debated about a certain element entering the fifth story. In the end I decided it would be useful and it got put it. This note was meant to hit the net in one of the short comic stories published before the fifth story's presentation. ... I am sorry, but because of how the shorts have been coming out. This piece of information, that note added into the fifth story. It will now be a complete surprise to readers. Rather than a small heads up in a short. The short story giving that first appearance, it will still come out later.

One of the shorts that out in advance of Devil's Blood, helps the fifth story. If any of you read DB you'll know for a fact which short helped it immensely near it's end.

... To what I've seen happen with my stories in the past. My work is far from being on the forefront of popularity. I recently learned the work has lost one reader at least for this story I'm about to start proof checking. Kiaraprime ( IG Unlimited forum user ) at least having partwise read, Accepting and Escaping was a surprise to me. I honestly didn't think the story was going to get a second review.

If anyone reads Devil's Blood when I finally post it. Please review and have that in words which say you've read it. Overly generic comments only tell me such a thing is a falsehood.

I haven't worked on the comics for three days for wanting to wrap up writing this story. I'll be restarting that later today and also starting the more than one round of proof checking Devil's Blood needs.

Pure confirmation I'm a bad writer. ... The one person I thought for a fact was going to read the story I've been working on since last year - technically since '16. They have said they won't read it. Religious reasoning even after I tried to point out what I was writing was pure fantasy over what they had concern with. ... I'm awful. .. Now I'm not going to give people progress updates each time I post a comic page. No one cares what I'm doing. ... I'm going to finish writing this ... even though it has no audience.
Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un are such sane world leaders. Who else wants to make popcorn, grab anidepressants and candy, to watch this go down if it's televised? ( kidding folks )

Please donate points :). This dirt poor kitty wants DA gooshy food :cweeks: :dalove:. .... Ok this has been up for a while and I can only guess no one gets the crack I'm making at an internet comic as to why I'd like points. "gooshy food" meaning stuff. I'd love to be able to buy a print, DA plushie, or even have a premium membership to this site :). The only points I have so far are from Llama trades and at the rate I'm going it will be DA's 20th anniversary by the time I'll be able to afford any thing aside from a bowtie or shades for my Llama.
