that’s right DTS Fans, I have a new clock! so hopefully I will stop posting late blog posts!
Though this one will be a little short, This week, we’ve been Vectoring our items for the books, and hanging out at Bronycon, Yours truly spent the weekend locked in his office with a bowl of dogfood however… Other than that, not much has happened that really hasn’t been mentioned. So with that I’m going to get back to figuring out how to escape this office.
Till Next Week!
So most of DTS Is at BronyCon this weekend, and the Bastards locked me in my office. I was going to post about this earlier today, but they cut the router to my computer, I had to hack the Stream’s feed to get this Measly S.O.S. out on our website!
They left me with a pot of coffee and a bowl of dog food and I’m ALMOST out of coffee. so send coffee, and come hang out on picarto: HERE if you’re not at BronyCon.
If you are infact at bronycon, look for a giant Viking of a Man slinging crits in the back alley. tell him I need more coffee!
There’s also Our editor in chief, and Lead Game Dev as well so keep in eye out for a Pilot in a Stetson and a man with Hair taller then he is short!
But mostly send coffee!
Yeah yeah yeah, I’m Late again, I know. Unfortunately I spent the weekend learning the ins and outs of Adobe Illustrator. Why? Well because we have moved on to the second portion of our “12 step art guide to successfully taking over the universe!” I mean of doing all the art in our books.
That’s right Deadites… Dead Tree Fans… DTFs?… I Digress! That’s right! we’ve moved away from those horrid sketches you saw us… sketching on our Picarto and now we are vectoring all the line art for them. What does that mean? well simply it means we’ve come up with design ideas for the thousands of items that will be in our books and you get to watch us curse and swear as we hate our lives vectoring everything out. yay
Other than that, not too much happened last week, just art really.
See you next week (hopefully on time)
Yeah I know we’re late with this week’s update. I have a long weekend off from my day job and it kinda messed with my perception of time. So here we are on MY Sunday.
For the most part, a whole lot of art got completed. I’ve been spending the last months or so sketching ideas for the thousands of items; weapons, armour, mods, crafting etc. and we are almost done. yay! In fact the entire list Should be completed by the next blog post. After that we will be turning these sketches into full coloured vectors to be put into the Books. The best part is that you can watch me and the other artists sketch up these ideas. And in a week, vector those sketches on our Picarto stream HERE
Can’t say too much else has happened. Just more art, writing and editing really.
Also, while we won’t have anything official, a couple of our members are going to bronycon to hang out and hand out business cards. So keep an eye out for a group of shady characters slinging epic adventures in the back alley…. I mean Games room.
Howdy-ho Dead Tree Fans! Your favourite blogger is back! A lot of stuff has happened over the last two weeks and it’s a bit of a doozy.
First on the list, we passed 100$ on Patreon. So we’d like to thank all our Patreon subscribers. Because of that we have set up our first goal, a Picarto Livestream!
There’s no set streaming schedule, we mostly livestream whenever we work on DTS stuff. But the norm seems to be Monday – Thursday from 6pm -11pm est. Fridays from 6pm – whenever our Friday PnP group game starts, and weekends from whenever we wake up to whenever we go to bed. However check out random times too, you never know. And be sure to follow us on Twitter, we try and tweet when we stream so it’ll help you catch us live at the weird times we’re live.
We also got a LOT of the art done. All the Weapons, armour. and most of the clothing have been sketched out and designed. They still need to be fully drawn and vectored but a good chunk of it is done. All that’s left is shields, Healing and miscellaneous items.
We’ve also set up our Sneak Peak folders for the Patreon subscribers who meet the appropriate tier.
And I survived that one field ex that caused us to skip last weekends update.
Either way, glad to be back, And I’ll see you next weekend.
Once again, We’d like to thank everyone who came to our Roll 20 Game. Both those who participated, and those who watched on Twitch. We’d classify that day as quite the Success. So Thank you all once again.
We also broke 100$ on our Patreon, which means we will be live-streaming the majority of our work, whenever we are working. Which is quite often. It will probably be a month or so before everything is set up and running smoothly. But keep an eye out as we will be updating you all about it when we can. There’s lots of prep, organization and planning which will have to go into this. So do be patient.
Other than that we got some art done, brought on a new artist, and worked on editing the book we had recently finished writing.
Heads up though. Next weekend there most likely will not be an update to the blog. I’m going to be on a Field Ex and have no idea what will be happening around that time. So we will most likely skip it.
Till two weeks from now!
And thanks again for being awesome guys! You all rock!
Welp that was a blast. We’d like to thank everyone who came out and played and everyone who watched our livestream for making this a great success!
Our Roll 20 livestream is now Live!
come check us out at and show your support at our Twitch
Can’t really say there’s too much to update you folks on this week.
Another book has finished the writing stage and is undergoing editing, after that, it’s off to formatting in Adobe InDesign.
A bunch of finished art got completed as well.
I binge watched RWBY like 6 times. I think that puts my count at 23 or 24 times i’ve seen the series.
and we had a meeting over the weekend discussing exciting things like release dates, upcoming conventions, and art. As well as boring things like expenses, and paperwork.
That’s about it for now.
See you all next week!
