What do you guys do when you stumble into this unfortunate but impossible to avoid circumstance? Take a break? Work on something else? Drink to excess?
I don't know. I haven't really had the motivation to draw in the past week, which makes me feel bad as I just got off a long break of drawing and now it seems I've stalled before I've even really begun.
I've started Chapter 3, a couple pages in, and I have the volumes of the chapter all blocked out, so I know where I'm going and I have it more or less mapped out but I can't seem to get the energy to start walking down that road. The only things I've really had the energy to do is watch my Netflix and anime, so basically, just sitting there and watching things.

oh well.

-MB, Hypin' it up.
My new apartment. I'm in my new apartment, and it has been at least a week and some change since I've relocated. The whole thing took about 5 days and it suuuuuuuuucked.
Just. SUPER hard you guys.
I was sore, exhausted and I hadn't drawn for almost two weeks at that point. Which isn't really that long, but when I don't draw for awhile I start to feel a little guilty. Ya know, cuz that's just one of the things I do.
It was just a couple of days ago that I started drawing again, and it's with great joy and, honestly, a feeling of comfortable familiarity that I started to begin Chapter 3.

REJOICE! FOR IT WILL NOW ONLY BE A MERE SEVERAL WEEKS, PROBABLY, UNTIL CHAPTER 3 IS OUT!
And by Chapter 3, I mean, Chapter 3: Volume 1.
In the interest of all my fans(...) NOT dying of old age before they see another page, I am planning to draw the current chapter in 3 or 4 volumes, depending on the length of the Chapter and maybe some other factors I can't think of right now,
like laziness,
but this way I figure I can create some sort of consistent output that might help me with the overall speed at which I do things. That's a thing other people do, right?

I also figured I should start Chapter 3 on account that Bethesda has kind of, sort of, officially announced Fallout 4.
Fallout. 4.
Holy crap guys! That game is gonna be so god damn hype! I'm already on the hype train. All snuggled in the back, wrapped up in my hype blanket and drinking from my hype mug of pipping hot hype. What I'm saying is, that game is gonna be dope as hell.
It certainly helps that I currently live in Boston, so playing around in that game is gonna be extra real for me! *So Awesome!*

Hey guys. Do you think I'll see ME in that game? Like, I'll be a gnarly-ass skeleton, huddled in the corner like a gross bone pile? That would be a pretty dope DLC.

Buy The Gross Skeleton Guy DLC Now For $29.99 And We'll Add An Extra Skeleton In Some Corner With Your Name On It! Go Up To It And Try To Talk To It, It Won't Do Anything! It's A Donk-Ass Skeleton Ya Dummy! Skeletons Don't Talk! Buy Now!

Heh. Dope. I'd buy that. I'd buy the shit out of that. Because I'm bad with money, and I'll buy things because they're dumb.

Just so it seems like I have some sort of presence on my own sites I'm also thinking about streaming the process I go through to create the pages that a handful of you enjoy. Sometimes I'm good at it, sometimes I'm not.
If I do and you actually tune in don't be surprised if I stare at the page and draw almost nothing for 30 minutes or more, sometimes seeing the page is a little more difficult than others. Other times I'll draw for a couple of hours without stopping once. Lady Inspiration can be a cruel mistress. Though that's probably because I never really do any outlines or thumbnails, which for better trained and probably more accomplished artists and comic creators out there is absolutely abhorrent and dumb. I kind of just picture the flow of the page while I read what I'm drawing and it sort of self dictates how it looks from there.
Though I've also went back to pages after I've already moved on and changed a few things here and there, which usually make the page better for it so I'm never really too bummed when I end up redrawing the same things. It's all part of the process.

Here you go
Here I am! Major Brons
Thank you, ma'am!
This'll be a treat!
Major Brons, here i am!
While you read ...

(I tried)
Major Brons Out!
*flies off majestically*
*a single tear softly rolls down your cheek*
 
 
That's not a euphemism, I think I might be coming down with something.
Or am I?

Yeah. Probably.

I wonder if beer helps? Only one way to find out!

So. What have I been up to?
Well, serendipitously, as soon as I finished Chapter 2, I got a request from a dude I've worked with in the past asking for another piece. From a break in my hobby project straight to a commission.
Nice!
That took about three, three in a half weeks, and as soon as I delivered said commission on the date agreed upon did my apartment hunt begin not a day or so later.
That took a little over a week, but it felt like three.
Apartment hunting is horrible, HOORAY!
I did get the place I wanted so there's that. Though the only reason I did was because my fathers credit apparently is god tier...or just, like, really good.
MY credit, however,  is laughable. Which I found out to be factually true as my realtor proceeded to laugh at it when she saw it.
Hey Kids! Watch out for your CREDIT!
Pay your bills! Don't go to art college! Get a low ball credit card in your mid 20's and pay your monthly bills with accrued interest on time! Financial responsibility!
Boy am I fun!? This is fun, right? This is what all the kids are into these days?
Let's talk about our 401ks!

Oh wait, this is getting to be legitimately boring.

Right. What am I doing? When is Fallout coming back? Why do you think we're even asking these questions in the first place?
Okay. While I've already jauntily told all of you, my lovely readers, what I've been up to these past few to several weeks, I am probably going to continue to be busy at a pretty constant pace until I settle in to my new place next month. Until then it's just a'doodilin' and a'packin'. Fallout will come back probably a few to several weeks after THAT point. So, yeah, it's gonna be awhile, BUT I am still drawing other stuff and I even like some of it!
You can check my other stuff at those sites, apbergart.com and my tumbler account majorbrons.tumblr.com. (I just typed those out. I don't believe they're links, unless it's one of those rare instances where I'm wrong.) Pure. Unadulterated. Machismo.

Boom baby (see you somewhere else at some time)

I have finally reached the end of Chapter Two, and damn did it take longer than I expected. However, I have never been more appreciative and proud of all the work I've done and all the support I've had over this past year.
I've never been one to interact too much with the community and my presence is still that of a small unknown, but getting "famous" was never really the point when I started this (and I'm not saying I AM famous even now). I just wanted to draw a comic and work on my manga skills and have other people enjoy the work that I put into each page.
Of course I want recognition and I enjoy my ever growing support from all you wonderful people, because let's face it, when you draw a comic it's for the purpose of other people to read, but in the end what I like the most is my own personal growth, and I got to see it first hand when I put together my comic webpage a few weeks ago, seeing my first few pages (which instantly made me vomit) to my newest pages (which instantly gave me a boner).
There's always a little ego stroking when you sell yourself as an artist, as a commodity to produce a product, so I think it's good to keep challenging yourself and setting your expectations higher than that of your own fans.

Anyway, I'm ranting again and I have some other things I should be working on, so I'll get to the point.

When will Chapter Three start to come out?

and to that I say, I don't know. Sorry, I don't but I will definitely come back to it because I'm really quite interested in seeing how the world looks when I take it out of my head and put it onto paper, and I also really want to see how far I can take it. I started working on this project more than two years ago. Two Years. And in those two years I've drawn over a HUNDRED pages of a story that is longer than "War and Peace", so I can only imagine how many more pages I have in me. It's a personnel challenge and also one that I want to continue for all of you, my fans and friends that continue to enjoy what I do and send encouragement in the form of thanks, notes and opportunities. I have a lot more work in front of me, not just in Fallout: Equestria, but in all my other art aspirations that I want to do, and though I have so many hopes and ideas that it some times becomes almost too much, I know that it also keeps me striving to rise above what I can currently do.
All of you help drive me, you push me and lift me up when I'm feeling overwhelmed or out of my league and for that alone I'll forever be grateful, so I ask you guys to keep an eye out for me cause I have lots of ideas that in all honesty might take a while for me to get to (the expansion of my comic website, starting my own web comic, expanding my base and accessibility, livestreaming, maybe even attending some cons in the future because I've started to hear some people ask if I do that, and honestly it's never something that I thought I would do myself) but I promise to try and keep you all in the loop and though I won't start working on Chapter Three right away, that doesn't mean you won't see any pony art from me. You will. Ohhhh, you will.

Okay, now I really gotta go, I've had five cups of coffee and I can barely sit still for more than a minute so I'm gonna go outside and scream at some of the trees to tire myself out a little.

Much Love. Much Respect. Wow.

And this is it for now my pretties.
I hope to see you all very soon, but not right away cuz' I got some other stuff I want to do. Which I will obviously keep all you informed with, but I'll explain that in a little more detail in a journal update, so go read that if you want.
I'll be super nice and compliment you a whole bunch, because all of you are so handsome and you all smell really nice.
