thanks, man! Yeah, I've been kind of gutting and editing the whole cosmology of the 'Fathoms' world, but I've been doing a lot of sketching and painting to get the muse working into overdrive to breathe some life back into it. I think going for a darker, more futuristic tone (along with the occasional fun, anachronistic element of course)has helped
It can definitely be tough to strike a balance between the kind of creation that involves plotting big narratives and cultural dynamics and histories and... oceanographies(?), and the kind of creation that involves actually writing/drawing the pieces of those histories that people will read, but it sounds like you've got the right approach to maintaining momentum. I'm glad you're still working on Fathoms, though, 'cause with designs like this... shit, I'm already a fan.
