What's up, you guys! Ace here with the first monthly update in 6 months. It's been a while so let's get started.

First off, boy has it been a busy semester this year. Especially this upcoming weekend since I will be starting my finals during that time. Man has it been tiring. Oh well, that's what I get for being an AE major. LOL. 

Anyways, let's get to the art-related news. 

So, due to the reason of having a hectic school schedule this semester, I haven't been able to upload, or at least create, additional pages for my manga, SOMA. I know it's been over 7 months since the last upload and I do greatly apologize for it. Unfortunately, I do not know when I will be able to return and create more pages to share with you guys. Might be for another semester or may be a year, I don't know. But don't worry, I haven't given up on the manga series yet. 

What you guys can expect from me soon are a bunch of new concept artwork. Of course, one of them will be SOMA-related while the others are going to be special. What do I mean by special? Well, for the past couple of weeks I've been uploading redraws of my discontinued series ARC: Aerodynamic Racing Carriers. Here is one completed concept work I did with a nice comparison:
ARC Mech Design - Before and After by TheRebornAce

There is one more concept work being finalized and will be posted in a few days (possibly after the first day of finals). Also, I will be uploading two additional character of ARC that never made to the story when written out. After that, you guys can expect a nice poster design of this series (may be downloadable as well). So if you love mecha, do be hype for these upcoming works.

What you guys can also expect is another poster design. But of what? Well, I hope you guys like dragons. That's right!!! For years, I've always wanted to create a poster design for my first manga (which is now discontinued), Dragon Hero. The character remakes I've uploaded two years back, you guys can expect the similar design but a few upgrades. also, the biggest benefit of this poster design project is that I can finally share and finalized the other 12 characters I've made for the story that has never been revealed until now. So do get hype.

Unfortunately, you guys won't be expecting these project up here anytime soon. They are very time consuming to be honest. To get an idea of how long, my current mecha projects takes me about an entire week to sketch, lined, colored, and finalized. As for the poster projects, I am currently working on the SOMA one and it has already been over a month and I'm only 3/4 done. Therefor,e these projects are big and will take a great amount of time and patience. But I promise you, when they are done and uploaded, you will not be disappointed! :)

Well, that is it for this monthly update. Gotta get back to work, both school and art related. I'll see you guys later. Ace, out. 

List of expected artworks to come:
- Ashley and Mecha Finalized Concept; digital
- Two additional characters to the ARC series preview; digital
- SOMA Character poster; digital (with 6 additional characters to the original:…)
- ARC Character design poster; digital (Standing by)
- Dragon Hero Character design poster; digital (Standing by)

Quick update: Expect two new upcoming works I've been working on for weeks this upcoming holiday (the 24th and 25th). 
No need to be alarmed, my fellow watchers. The images I have just uploaded are not the images I really want to share. I will create and upload the updated and actual versions of them. For now, take a glimpse of how I drew things before and how my character sheets were made. 
Doing the lineart for the last group of characters on the upcoming SOMA Poster. Once that's completed, oh boy, time for a long and strenuous sit down of coloring and shading. 
Trying out the new 'Recent Activity' widget. What do you guys think of it? 

I might start using this a lot so I don't have to write so many journal updates about small notices/activities.
