As if those weren't obvious enough. ^^;
I really like these stamps, though.

Welcome to the New Year!

Fri Jan 1, 2016, 8:42 AM


(Because that title is TOTALLY not based off of a movie I recently watched called Welcome to the Space Show. Nope. Not at all~.)

Wow, has it really been an entire year since I started on Intergalactic Fusion? I've only got 110 pages done out of like the 180 I plan to have for the first book alone! At this rate, I definitely won't be able to finish one book a year, though on the other hand, that might not be a bad thing either. Since this is supposed to be my personal magnum opus, so to speak, I don't mind giving it all the time it needs to be as good as it can be.

Of course, you guys can only read 88 of the 110 pages I have done now. And Explorers of the Space-Time Continuum is rapidly reaching its conclusion at 72 comics. So! What this means is that, for this new year, starting next week, I'll change the schedule up a bit.

Two pages of Intergalactic Fusion will be released every Tuesday, and a new comic of Explorers of the Space-Time Continuum will be released on Thursdays and Saturdays until it is finished. After that, I'll have to decide whether to go back to my old Wednesday/Saturday schedule for Intergalactic Fusion or change it up because I get yet another new idea that I want to draw a little something for or what. But we'll see what happens when we get there.

Beyond that, my goals for this year include:

1) Finishing up Book 1 of Intergalactic Fusion and have it printed so people can buy it~.
2) Hang out with my real life friends a bit more and attempt to cosplay as Lucina at the next Katsucon anime convention.
3) Try and spread the word of Intergalactic Fusion a bit more so maybe I might get a bit more revenue this year compared to last year.
4) Attempt to get a better paying part-time or even full time job?
5) STOP GETTING DISTRACTED BY ALL OF THESE NEW VIDEO GAMES THAT TAKE LIKE FOREVER TO GET THROUGH

Though to be honest, those goals are so lofty that I can only potentially guarantee you two of the five. Still worth a shot, though, right? Right??



Also! Tlozyp has so generously started fandubbing my Explorers of the Space-Time Continuum series. But! She needs your help! More specifically, she needs someone's help to do the voice of Grovyle in particular. (And maybe even Dusknoir too. And maybe even for other male characters she may or may not have trouble with. But mostly Grovyle.) I've seen fandubs for various comics of such fandoms as Splatoon and Undertale earlier last year, but I never dreamed that any of my comics would be worthy enough for people to want to dub them in a similar fashion. So if you want to help her out, or heck, even try out your own interpretation, go right ahead!

Amy Wu Donovan
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
Hi, I’m Amy, and I’m an extremely active artist here on dA. (That is, when I'm in the middle of a project.) I’m a comic artist who has been practicing since the age of 14, and I didn’t achieve my current speed until I was about 19, though I have been drawing all my life. Although Pokémon is but one of my favorite things, the sheer diversity of creatures in it, as well as the number of Pokémon groups here on dA that have been created with a focus on creative storytelling, have made it so that the vast majority of my submissions have been Pokémon comics, pictures, and stories. Other franchises I like primarily include those of the science fiction genre, especially the Metroid series, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, Lilo and Stitch, Wall-E, Invader Zim, Ben 10, and other such things, though lately, I've also taken a liking to pretty much ANY good story, regardless of genre. In fact, I actually have a crazy number of interests that aren't even begun to be listed, especially since I've started watching a lot of anime in recent years, so check out the "Interests" tab at the bottom of this spiel to see more.

I also used to play video games a lot, but ever since I got into comic-making and storytelling, not so much anymore. Whenever my hands get tired, I either go running for 30 minutes to an hour at a time, or watch movies. I’m very much an introvert; whenever I’m by myself, I can concentrate for hours at a time and get stuff done.

Speaking of getting stuff done, I tend to submit a LOT of deviations in a very short time period compared to a lot of other people on this site, because I’m fast at art and tend to get a ton of story ideas at once. Only during those idea floods, though; all other times, there's no flood of art. I also highly recommend reading ALL of the artist’s comments that I write on every deviation—though I tend to write a lot, they’re all full of useful factual information that reveals what usually goes on in my head when I’m writing and drawing these comics, pictures, and stories.

My current career goals right now include getting a job (any job that pays the bills that my skills are well-suited for, really) while continuing to do comics on the side as a hobby. But if I can somehow make money doing comics, especially, that would be even better! And now, with Patron being a thing now, it might actually be possible!

My storytelling style includes several prominent themes:

:bulletpink: Being suitable for all ages. For the most part. Originally starting out as a backlash against all the stuff that I realized that I didn’t like when I turned 13, the fact that making stories suitable for all ages will allow anyone to easily access it proved to be a powerful motivating factor, as well as allowing my work to stand out. And it's just a force of habit now, more or less. :lol: True, “all-ages” is a subjective term, but in general, you won’t see any blood, gore, or even any cuss words in my stories. Or if there are “cuss words”, they’re always either bleeped out like “@!#?$%” or with such euphemisms as “ZZZT”. (Note that in my semi-recent romance works, there may be slight hints of adult themes now and again, but I strive to keep those as subtle as possible for the audience's sake.)

:bulletpink: Colorful characters. Now of course, ALL series have characters, but I like to make characters who have very diverse personalities, and if possible, have distinct speech patterns. This is an area which has drastically improved over my career as a storyteller; before, many of my characters pretty much acted like myself. Not so true today.

:bulletpink: Humor. My brain has a tendency to exaggerate story situations and character reactions to make situations hilarious, as well as looking into the personalities of the characters and figuring out what kinds of interactions are entertaining. Short stories and stories that don’t have any emotional or powerful themes in them tend to have such humor in sheer abundance to compensate.

:bulletpink: Emotional and powerful storylines. I might like comedy, but that’s not all my brain can dish out. My stories can be very, very dramatic, too. But I never, ever make my characters suffer true physical and emotional pain for no reason at all. Behind the pain, there is always a lesson behind it, and my stories, above all, serve to show everyone that, no matter how painful things get, it is possible to face the adversity, overcome it, and come out of it as a better person, stronger than you were before. I don’t know how many people facing difficulties in their lives who read my comics gain the courage to face them better, but if I can help even ONE person, then I’ll be happy.

:bulletpink: Diversity. While this might not have seemed as true in the past, nowadays, I don't like to limit myself to just being pigeonholed as being proficient in only the genre of "sci-fi manga aimed towards kids ages 8-12", at least in terms of what I am capable of. I like to experiment with as many story genres, inking styles, coloring styles, and if possible, pencilling styles to see what the effect of going with a new style has on conveying a story. However, I don't just strive for diversity in terms of stories and art; I also try to do my best to include diverse characters and/or species as possible, depending on the genre.



I now feel confident from all my experience in Pokemon RP groups to once again start creating original series! :D And I look forward to improving my skills and seeing just how far I can go~

And though my financial situation is currently adequate, I can also take commissions from time to time for extra cash, just in case. An important point to know is that I only take payment in actual dollars; no points allowed, since you can't exchange them for cash. Be sure to note me with exactly what you want, and wait for me to approve it before you send me the payment via Paypal.

More commission info here: fav.me/d7w4h5u

Stuff I despise: Any and all trollfaces, flagrant amounts of cursing, jerks, inappropriate material, inappropriate jokes, etc. I'll add more to this growing list of things to avoid whenever talking to me.

Oh, and one more thing... 日本語を分かりますよ。日本語もタイプすれば、自由に話しましょう!(I can understand Japanese, so if you can type it too, feel free to do so with me!)
