April Weigh-In: Down 5 pounds!

That’s over 50 pounds lost overall and 26 lost since the beginning of the year. Not too bad! Now I have less than 25 pounds left to lose! 

May is going to be crazy with my new job starting and Jake and I moving in together, so I think I’ll just track my intake to make sure I’m creating a nice deficit on most days and step on the scale here and there whenever I feel like it. I’m going to try to do a better job of taking pictures of my meals and posting them, too.

⭐️SHOUTOUT TO ONE OF MY BIGGEST INSPIRATIONS FOR THE UTGN PROJECT!⭐️

There are so many super neat Undertale comics in progress right now, it’s honestly a little bit intimidating. But! One of the advantages of that is being able to draw inspiration from them. I may not be working digitally or working off of my own premise like most comics are, but it’s really neat to see other people working with the characters in their own ways…which brings me to the point of this blurb.

One of the most inspirational comics that I’ve been following as I work on the graphic novel is @xxtc-96xx’s Endertale. It’s a comic following the True Pacifist run, specifically a version where Frisk pulled some shenanigans in order to save Asriel and now they’re living out a fantastic life with their friends and new family. There’s only one problem, though… Chara’s not exactly on board with this idea. Chara wants a reset and is going to get it by whatever means necessary, since Frisk has firmly decided that they don’t want to destroy the happy future they’ve managed to get for everyone. And thus…Frisk endures a lot of torture and flashbacks and suffering courtesy of our favorite ghost friend (which is what the doodle of UTGN Frisk and Chara is a reference to).

The comic is adorable and hilarious for part of the time and for a lot of the time it’s incredibly intense and suspenseful. I’m always super excited when the next part comes in on my dash. It’s very well done and the art style and story and character work are marvelous.
It’s a huge inspiration to me as an Undertale comic artist because well, it’s just so amazing and well-received, and getting to follow a comic like that gives me hope for the future of mine. Mine will never be quite as imaginative and well-done as Endertale, but I can always try.

I look forward to seeing more of Endertale in the future. @xxtc-96xx, excellent work so far and thank you so much for being such a big inspiration to me.
