Amirai's Profile Picture

United States
It's been a while since I've posted anything here, mainly because -- you guessed it -- my hands are still messed up. Still, that doesn't mean I haven't been working on anything, so here's the update on various stuff.


It's been an infuriating process trying to heal. I read an article about healing tendons from a doctor and he said that the 'coating' on a healing tendon is about as strong as jello, and honestly, from my personal experience that doesn't sound far off. I keep making tiny little mistakes and I can literally feel the coating tearing, and since tendons take most of a year to heal I keep on having start over again and again and build up a database in my mind of what I can and can't do.

On top of that, I've also read that it's bad to completely immobilize it for so long, because it heals weaker and is more likely to be injured again.


So, returning to comics is still way off. :(


This is what I've been focusing on most lately. Shards has crossed the 50,000 word mark, and I'm aiming for the first book to be somewhere between 75,000-125,000 words. I know that's a pretty wide range but I'm terrible at estimates.

I've also been poking at a few other possible stories a little, but Shards is definitely my main focus.

Game making

There's been a bunch of progress on Loot Pursuit as well, if I had to guess I'd say the proof of concept demo is about half done, but as I mentioned I'm terrible at estimates.

It's quite playable at the moment but is missing content and most importantly, a tutorial. It's not a traditional battle system so I think it needs a little explanation for a few things, but it's not all that complex either so it shouldn't require too much, and I can blend it in with the gameplay.

Working on a novel results in me not having much to show while I'm working on it because I'm not the type of writer who writes in a straight line, but I'm continuing to work and I'll update again when I have news on my progress.

how are you these days
Amirai Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2017
Haven't managed to heal my right hand, but I've been able to work a small amount with my left hand. I've been continuing to work on my novel, but will have something art-related to show soon.

Are you still in pain?  What is the status of your Kyoshi comic?
Amirai Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2016
My hand doesn't hurt most of the time but the tendons in my palm are still a long ways away from healed. I wrote a journal with a more detailed answer and update on my various projects here:…

What about a tying bandages around your hands
cda95 Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2016
Have you try putting some ice on your hands
Amirai Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2016
Yep. It can reduce the pain a little, but it does not solve the problem.
