Happy New Year!

Posted by Lady Kopaka , Jan 02 2018 · 399 views

HEY GUYS LET'S MAKE 2018 AMAZING. Because 2017 was one of the most exhausting years I've had to contend with.

Between current events, moving six hours away to a new town, a medical withdrawal from college (after attempting to return from a six year hiatus), my dad getting a serious cancer, financial problems (but at least I have generous family and friends to keep me homeless), health still NOT improving, friend struggles, and...I'll just cut the list early there. Suffice to say you get the idea.

It wasn't all bad and I need to remember the good, but yeah, let's not do a repeat of that again. I hope your 2017 was better at least--and if you're struggling like me, let's stick together and hope 2018 is kinder. We can do this!

I haven't canceled CATALYST, but with my health and life situations I've fallen dismally behind. I hope to be back in the groove soon. Either to continue it or have a new plan.

Take care all~


the release date for CATALYST is...

Posted by Lady Kopaka , Jun 08 2017 · 316 views

August 2nd!!!

Okay guys! Just updating to say I finally have a stable release date for my Bionicle webcomic. The entire prologue (roughly 15 pages) will be released August 2nd. It coincides with Brickfair Virginia! Chapter 1 will then be updated everyday during Brickfair (until the 6th). From there, the updates will slow down to twice or three times a week, with the occasional break to keep a healthy buffer up.

I'm so excited to show this project to all of y'all! Thank you so much for the patience, encouragement, help--everything! :)


Art or Writing?

Posted by Lady Kopaka , May 25 2017 · 583 views

I'm kinda excited for 'The Legend Continues' contests. Usually I'm not very competitive...but guys...that prize is an artbook. I'm a sucker for those. Bionicle artbook? Welp.

Curious...should I enter the art or writing contest? I honestly have good ideas for both, but guess it depends what I'm feeling or what will be best suited for the idea in the end. I'd appreciate any input or what you'd be most interested in from me. Art would likely be the obvious one, but writing still holds a special place in my heart.

Hint on my rough idea: it involved thunder and lightning. Any guesses?

Cheers guys! I also can't wait to see all the entries!!!


moving east

Posted by Lady Kopaka , Apr 03 2017 · 459 views

Right now I'm living south of Nasvhille. I love it here, but it's too expensive. and I don't like the surrounding areas much either to live in. My initial plan was to go out west, to Denver, but that dream has fallen short. Smaller steps, I reckon.

East coast is great too though! My brother and I are moving pretty much to the edge of Tennessee, Johnson City. ETSU is there and it's a small town with mountains!!! I'm sold, honestly. if things work out, we move mid-July. Found a nice apartment and everything.

Speaking of ETSU, I'll be attending! I'm likely just going to start out part-time, but I (unless things change or I don't like the major) will be going for a B.F.A., concentration graphic design. maybe a minor in digital media. It's a weird thought...I haven't been in college since 2011. I'm excited to return.

If you live in the surrounding area, let me know! I'm definitely going to need contacts. Also, I bet we could work something out to get you to roadtrip to Brickfair! That'd be fun! IDK, just throwing that option out there.

Cheers :D


2017 Check In

Posted by Lady Kopaka , Mar 22 2017 · 428 views

Hi guys!

Who still gets on blogs??? I'm not sure myself. Just checking in. I still check the BZPower news a lot and I'm occasionally trying to force myself back on the forums. Not sure about the status and health of everything, though? Shame about GEN2 ending and all.

Oh but guys don't forget I'm wasting my precious little free time (when I'm not sick) on a Bionicle webcomic! It's hand drawn! Silly humanized bonkles! You should all ask me about it! It'll be rad!

How is everyone doing, otherwise? Any fun things to share? Also if we were friends and acquaintances back in the day we totally need to bug each other again! I'd love to catch up with folks.
(or hey if you're new or have always wanted to chat with me, that's fine too)

Anyway. Nothing much going on in my life. Being bedridden, likely moving further east this summer, having a quarter-life crisis, so forth. I'll also be at Brickfair VA again this year.

Okay, off to work back on art and script writing! Cheers all!


Brickfair VA 2016

Posted by Lady Kopaka , Aug 10 2016 · 548 views

[insert things such as 'it was fun!' and 'i got to meet lots of new and old friends!' and 'the MoCs were amazing!']

But in the end, thank you everyone for helping me get up there considering my financial situation. The Pates (though they couldn't come this year) helped a lot as did Ben/CF, making sure I had the funds for food, lodging, and all that. Thank you Jamison/Brappy Hour for letting me and my brother room with you, and for being a wonderful person who I could trust and feel safe by. Thank you Scott for being so kind and for the awesome tshirt as well as the new hairstyle for my self-minifig! Thank you Team Farm Animals for being totally awesome. While they are notorious for being remarkably comical, they are some of the sweetest gentlemen and I thank them all for letting me hang with them. Shout outs to others like bzpower staff and some of the people who were kind enough to talk to me about my art. It was very humbling for many to watch me draw, ask for advice, or even do art for them!

Brickfair is a very important part of my life now. Though this was just my third year coming, it means so much to me. It makes me sad all these wonderful people live so far away from me! But it also makes the year wait all the more special. Hijinks, adventures, personal growth, helping others...I couldn't ask for a better community.

Very grateful time seemed to slow down enough for that week. just...for me to take a deep breath, look around, remind myself why I'm here, what I want to do, and what I can do for others someday. it was great that my health has been improving, and it was timed well for brickfair.

In general, I'm sad about it being over, but I'm so happy and forever thankful that I was able to go and have fun with all you great people. If I didn't get to spend much time with you, I apologize sincerely! But I'll see everyone next year!

Note to self though: don't take a bus again.

Hi everyone. Long time no chat.

Nothing very new or important to report. Just struggling to get by. Hoping to start seeing a light at the end of the black hole, you know?

I'll be going to brickfair in VA this year again. Who else is coming?

I'm not really sure what else to say, hmm. Anyone want to throw questions at me? Or how is everyone else? Summer going well so far?

Bionicle: Catalyst

Coming Soon! Bionicle comic series!

Posted by Lady Kopaka , Aug 13 2015 · 672 views

I've announced on other websites I frequent, but I forgot to mention here on BZP. I'm currently working on a series of short comics devoted to BIONICLE, particularly during the Makuta takeover arch. Frankly, I was upset in the direction of the story after Mahri Nui, so I'm working on redoing it. Obviously, this is my AU and I don't want to force it on anyone, but mayhaps some people will enjoy it?

Here's quick facts about it:

- To be released January of 2016 (though will keep everyone updated with concept art and so forth until then).
- Will be in a alternative universe with mostly minor altercations to the story--but does its major detour during Karda Nui.
- Human Bionicle portrayal. I could go on a long rant as to why I'm doing this, but in the end, it's because I want to do it this way.
- Will be separated into comic issues--each one around 20 or so pages.
- Each issue will be focusing on a particular group of characters and event.

Here's an test page, random scene from Time Trap:

That's all I have for today. I guess I'll decide if I want to make a topic or keep it here for all the progress work.

Let me know if you guys have any suggestions or such.
