Happy Birthday, Marcus!

Happy Birthday, Marcus!

Today, my 33rd birthday!
Currently, I am in Shanghai taking a break from attending masters courses in Chinese History at my university. I’m slowly editing the current 1st novel and looking over the outline before I begin working on other pieces.

Celebrate today by sharing this post and getting the word out about my work!

The Gospel of Yscariot Turns Eighteen!

In celebration of the 18th anniversary of the conception of Yscariot, I am personally revealing the artwork of a character to appear and star in the second chapter in the Yscariot storyline.

She will appear as the antagonist in the second book. What her motives are as far as wanting to kill Yscariot will be a mystery, but until then, we will have to first find out what leads to these events after finishing the first chapter! Stay tuned and thank you for following! Don’t stop supporting my project!

New Character Added!

In appreciation for all that my mother, and grandmother especially, has done for me and my family, I dedicate this art, illustrated by fellow team member and artist, Gladys Betiles, to my mother. You can also spread the love, too! Whether it’s your mother’s birthday, Mother’s Day, or any day… send this image to your mother, or simply give her a hug.

I thank my mother for her support of my story! It is a long process, but I am getting there! To see the biography of Yscariot’s mother, Maryam, simply click here or visit the character glossary!

Looking back…

Recently, I have told several followers in my audience, via X’elCast, of the history of creating this story, but never in full detail had I discussed exactly what was “behind the scenes”.

I am thinking about posting a video [in the near and coming future] detailing the songs and situations in which I have written several happenings of my book. It is a story with action sequence, so I feel that I would talk more about what songs influence the making of my story from its earliest inscription to the present time.

I am just wondering if anyone would be interested in seeing such a video? I mean, I wouldn’t want to waste any time speaking only to myself about it. I hope to know…

Ideas Ideas Ideas…

Riu Vs Yscariot: Electricity Vs. Light

I bought a sketch book a week ago and decided to use it to practice my horrible drawing skills. After completing the concept of one of the scenes of my book, I went on my PC and jumped on the digital tablet to concoct another horrible drawing. I actually love my concepts though, since they tell a part of my story, Yscariot: Sphere of Light.

This is an image I made using a couple PC tools to get this idea out. Yscariot and Riu are not only cousins and future heroes of Earth, but they rival each other from. Whether it is besting each other in simple video games to testing out their new-found power, they find the fun in being number one.

Such an awesome Christmas gift for us by you, the readers and supporters of this story! Again, happy holidays to all of our supporters!

From April 28th (this year) to December 11th, I had only 995 downloads for the Zeta, and it was pretty slow due to moving, traveling, and not really campaigning much, since I figured most readers were likely reading the Continue reading 3234 Zeta Downloads!!!

No matter what you celebrate, or what lifestyle you practice, X’el Studios would like to take this time in wishing everyone in the world the very best this season. Every day should be about family and friends, but it’s the coldest season that usually bring the warmest memories.

For Gamers: Japanese PSO2 Winter Contest ($20 Value)

Although most holidays were abolished in the world of Yscariot™, the main story characters in the upcoming novel, Yscariot: Sphere of Light (as shown here) still enjoy winter time. Ironically, it’s having superpowers that generally keep them warm… Funny right?
