Oh my god so like

I found a random pile of old art from 2002-2003, my senior year of HS. SO HERE IS THE FIRST IN A SMALL SERIES OF REDRAWS.



In the old version I majorly skimped on her hands and feet, because I was so wrapped up in giving her pretty eyes and hair (THANKS, WATASE *_*). It wasn't long after then that I learned anatomy matters.

Tools used:
[Old version = ball point pen + back of a school flyer]
[New version = blue micron pen + blue Copics + back of abandoned old Death Note fanart]

Anyway, I'm going to try posting art weekly from now on~ :D After staying in the grind of job-art for so long, I've forgotten to make drawing personal and fun. Also, I'm a little afraid of LJ dying off since people don't update like they used to (myself included). LJ has been in my life since 2001, I can't let it go just yet!


THIS IS POST #1001, YAY

DEAR ARTISTS: There are some swell people that I've been drawing for over the past two years who need just a little bit of final art...that I sadly can't deliver because I'm overscheduled. What they need are:

-20 small graphical icons
-6 sketches to go along with a story-type thing, featuring random scenes and figures and such.

These will have a ninja-ish theme to em. If you're interested, his name is Mark and you can reach him at [naruto-arena at hotmail dot com].

A lot of the projects I've worked for in recent months can't be shared yet, but here's what I can post! :D




[^^^Drawn for superheronation.com], probably more to follow in the new year]

Fun stuff to link:

MISSIONCLOCK IPHONE APP: I drew the little icon for it. :D

If you have an iPhone and you like to keep up on the Shuttle Missions, you can find it here! The creator is a really nice person and has justly earned NASA love from the iPhone-using employees there. I FEEL LIKE I'M THE ONE IN SPACE NOW 8D

While I am pimping stuff out, here's a large thing: Anathema Volume 1, now available for lulu-print!

What I am doing:

Workin workin workin constantly on game art and comic pages while watching It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (next on my list is Oz because I like depressing myself during work). But also, I finally caught up on Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. If you were unsure about this new FMA because of its slow beginning/repeated stories from the first show, step into episode 14 and face the wall of kickass-everything. I'm such a stupid elitist but the comic's story is so much more fun for me and it's awesome to see my favorite scenes so well represented in animation-land.

Anyway, I'm working on a lot of art. It would be nice if October slowed down a little but I don't think that's going to happen. Maybe November? Just a weekend or two? D:

---
What I am not doing:

Successfully responding to comments and emails and other peoples' entries. For over a week I've accumulated several tabs of LJ comments, entries and emails and other messages that need a proper reply, but when I'm not working, cooking or sleeping or grocery shopping, I'm writing LJ entry excuses about failing to respond to people. It's all too much, you know.

But yeah, people deserve thoughtful responses rather than rushed, empty ones - I'll get back to you soon.

Oh hi it's nearly 6 am and I'm wasting precious sleep time; good night!

Who has used Lulu to print a comic? I've formatted everything to fit at 6x9 (+ bleed), but I don't know how to get all the images into a single PDF to their guidelines. They have instructions, very specific instructions, but everything I've read is geared towards manuscripts and not comics.

Printing is kinda hard man

[edit] OH UH, NVM ...But if any of y'all have helpful tips I'll be happy to hear them.



Commission for the lovely California gal, jadedshard - go read her story!

Gail Simone very quickly became one of my favorite writers after Birds of Prey and Secret 6 (ohhh how I want to read her run on Deadpool and eventually Wonder Woman), but this just reveals her to be such a ridiculously good person as well. I'm not familiar with much of John Ostrander's work, but that is a sad and difficult situation and I donated what I could.

A week or so ago I sketched some quickies from a bunch of stuff, it's all on DA already so this is a bit of a repost.

Doodle StuffCollapse )

This was drawn for Kyt Dotson, for her new story Black Hat Magick. As you can see on her other website, Mill Avenue Vexations, she's a huge supporter of artists of all different styles. I totally must return the favor and pimp her work often!

---

Slowly catching up! For those awaiting emails and preliminaries/preliminary revisions, I hope to resolve all of this tomorrow (today, I work on bonus material for the print version of Anathema 8D ).

Took a work-break to sketch Truffles the pixie sprite from Chowder! ...Only younger and less terrifying. I don't know what it is, if it's some shallow fixation I have or what, but I enjoy drawing younger versions of old characters.

Old School lesbians yeeeehaw



I actually did most of this...a year ago, but saw it today and realized it could get away without being totally refined.

Haven't posted art publicly in a while because I always feel like customers are watching this thing and wondering why I have time to post fun-art and not to draw their stuff. This a foolish thing to worry about and it means I barely end up drawing anything for personal improvement or fun.

I AM FINALLY CAUGHT UP after weeks of anxiety and moving hell (except for on DA comments)...And now I have to leave town with AJ to clean the old house, nooo I'll be behind again

Anyway, to celebrate nothing at all I drew some members of the Anathema cast...in God awful emulations of some of my influences, past and present. Guess which style is which (some of them may be poorly emulated x100000 ie: lower right) :D
