As per my usual pace, it's been a while since I last did any visible work on the Triptych of Pain. Fortunately, I've had some fantastic dreams recently that have set the atmosphere for me to post some updates very soon. I enjoy working on it far too much to leave it alone!
To get me into the right mood for adding to the Triptych, I've been re-reading earlier chapters and earlier versions of later chapters, and am currently pasting the first few chapters from dA to AO3, where my handle is Anna_Hopkins, so that when I get to the parts that are too graphic for dA, I won't miss a beat.
I'm also sorting through ideas for what to draw for my personal cover art (I like the idea of printing out the Triptych to have on my bookshelf). Possible motifs: works by the Marquis de Sade; the German Renaissance/Northern Renaissance; the Italian Renaissance; Mapplethorpe's photography; Nietzsche's works; and Schammasch's albums. It helps that I now have a job at a library, where I have access to all sorts of neat books.
For now, I'll post a little more regularly on dA, with more chapters from Halcyon Days to come once I get a good idea for how to continue. Halcyon Days also could use a better title, but I'll worry about that when I get to it.
