Ok, here’s the thing. I really, really want to be working on my comics, art trades, and personal art, but I can’t right now. Some of you might know that I’m working on a massive dolling making project for the local elementary school. I have 100 doll bodies to make, sew clothing, and cut out hair for. I have 13 days left.
64 made (27 left to stuff)
36 needing to be cut out and sewn and stuffed
Clothes made: none
Hair done: none
So yeah, I have to take a break until I’m done these. I’m really sorry guys.
Chapter 1 is now in the archive and chapter 7 has been updated. For those of you who are curious about Phaeton’s origins, there is a short text prologue available in the archive menu
There have been a lot of ‘idol’ contests going around on the Tower of Time and on deviantArt. Because I don’t have a subscription, voting will take place on the Shards of Phaeton website.
Like all the other idol contests, you submit a villain from a Sailormoon fanfic that you yourself have created. If accepted into successive rounds, you will draw images of this villain that fit the theme of that round. The image you submit for the qualifying round does not have to be drawn for that round, but all the other rounds must be new art.
1. The character you submit must be a part of a story you’ve at least started.
2. It must be your own creation.
3. Male, female, genderless, humanoid, or animal. Matters not.
4. I’d prefer to keep this as family friendly as possible. I don’t mind maure subject matter, but those who are underage may be participating in or voting in this contest and if they can’t look at your image (due to content), they likely can’t vote for you. Make sense?
5. Please, properly credit your images. I get chewed on enough for that. Don’t want that to spread to any of you.
6. Have fun!
To submit an entry, you need to fill out the following form. You can PM me on the Tower of Time, note me on dA, or just e-mail it to purenightshade at gmail dot com (or even go to the website and comment on the blog entry).
Website (if applicable, a dA gallery is acceptable)
You can use a pre-existing image to enter with. I must be created by you. I will accept dolls if they are large enough that I can make out the details.

Next month, we’ll be celebrating the third birthday of ‘Shards of Phaeton’. 3 years. 9 chapters. Many fans. Much love.
I’m not sure if I’ll run a contest this year as I’ll be participating in NaNoWriMo. I’m also not finished with the contest prize from last year. I do plan on finishing that, I just…lack the inspiration I had when I started. Many reasons for that. None of which I want to get into. I’ll get back to that in December.
Anyways, I just thought I’d share, let you guys know that’s coming up.
Sorry about the lack of updates last week. I realized on Tuesday that I hadn’t done one for Monday and was so busy all week that I didn’t get the chance to make any panels. So, this week we’ll do double updates so that you don’t miss anything.
In the meantime, check out the galleries for new content. I’m also updating some of the images with cleaner versions in the Traditional Art gallery. So keep an eye out for that and, as always, let me know if something is broken.
I realized something while I was making panels today. I hadn’t quite finished making the Hinome no Knight sprites when I started using them. I took a good look at his sprite sheet today and it turns out that some of them were, some weren’t, and I was using them alternately without realizing it, switching from an unfinished sprite to a finished one and back again. I’ll be going back and fixing as many of those as I can find.
Today, we have Eridanos.
Today’s feature is by Meshia.
