I quit my job over the weekend! ;O The managers haven't been keeping a tight ship over there at all and as a result, only half of the staff shows up for work most of the time. Luckily for me, my village's a retail hub for the towns around it and everywhere seems to be hiring <3.
Very sorry I haven't been visiting people as of late. I have, however, been posting art on a fairly regular basis, so you should mosey on over and check it out, right? ;3
Why the hell did my comic get featured? I've seen some pretty good pics today that certainly weren't mine, but they aren't featured. I'd really like to know what qualifies a picture to be featured - there seems to be a very large range in quality. I mean, compare my junk SKETCH to Reengirl and KoolAid Guys PICTURES. There is no comparison. I didn't try.
This is really kind of irking me. :/
On a better note, I'm learning harmonica! However, since it's a tremolo (double-reeded) it sounds different and doesn't play the same as say, a diatonic harmonica. Ah well, I'll continue to practice with this one and hopefully I'll get a new harmonica for my birthday :3 Comments (2) |

I am so not worthy of Steve Vai. *bows down* I loved this movie (Crossroads). The acting's bad, but the music is excellent. omg, and the devil totally gets pwn'd when the karate kid whips out his classical guitar style. XDDD
couple new art pieces up. Now that the voting's system's changed, I'm going to be a lot more lax with what I post here. That means you'll probably be seeing more sketches and the like. :3
Hope school/whatever is going well for everyone. It's totally starting to smell like fall. What's fall smell like you ask? For me, it's rain, crabapples, and a little bit of smoke. It's probably one of my favorite smells of all time if I had to classify it XD Can't wait til the leaves change!
You know what I hate? That featured art thing in the fanart section. I'm not sure if it's true with E-Cards and Wallpapers too, but the only things that get featured are FMA, Naruto, or Inuyasha stuff it seems, and it's always the same artists too. Very boring.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: They need a randomize function. I think it'd be so much cooler to have like, 6 random art pieces from the past year or so (maybe the last month XD) then to have to see the same damn thing every time.
That reminds me - I'm also not too fond of the content in a lot of fanart here. I hate it when people copy (not trace, copy) official art/screencaps/what-have-you and don't cite it. I think it's pretty insulting to other artists to take credit for that work when you basically only did half of it. Don't get me wrong - by all means, look off official art so that you can get a good handle on it. God knows I've done it (never posted it online, but it's excellent practice when you're starting out). But openly acknowledge that it's not yours. We all *know* it's not an original idea, just admit it! XD
And that's my two cents. Very spur of the moment, I think. XD
Oh, and new art up! Hinata from Naruto this time. :3
And look! A preview image 8D
I was really rushing last minute for it, but I actually finished my contest entry for theO on time! I saw Jigglyness' entry there (looks great btw!). Did anyone else enter? Except mister Chaos, of course ;3
I'm actually really proud of how my entry turned out. It's in a whole new style of coloring. Here's what the pic looked like about this time yesterday:
And, of course, you can find the finished piece in my gallery :3 Hope you all like it. Comments (4) |

The Best and Worst things ever.
I think Prince of Tennis might just be the best thing ever. What is it with sports series being so good? yeesh Oh, and Violinist of Hameln. It's got so much WTF goodness in it XD
I've got a lot of pictures to catch up on this month. Busy, busy, busy. That, and reading. Right now, I'm on Virgil's Aeneid, Tom Wolfe's A Man in Full, and Hostile Takeover (this one keeps making me sick though, because the sheer amount of disturbing facts on the government is absolutely disgusting. D:
A Crime Against Nature....And Other Pictures =) Currently Reading:
Hot Gimmick (again XD) Currently Watching:
Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni >_<;;
Last night I unearthed a nifty little notebook that I picked up from the Art Institute a couple years back. I found it's pretty good for doodling (probably why I got it in the first place) and I was flipping through it when lo, and behold, I found some of my earliest "anime" art. I'm only posting one since I don't want to make your eyes bleed. XD
Things to note: Observe how I applied several tricks of the amateur trade, including:
-The hands behind the body technique!
-worst haircuts ever! XD
-stereotypical facial features!
I can't believe those were only from 3 years ago.I certainly think I've improved, don't you? XD
Here's some antidotes to that monstrosity I drew up last night. CHAOS, YOU CAN'T LOOK BECAUSE IT'S A SUPER SEEKRIT SUPRISE NOT REALLY.
My orange copic is one of my last surviving ones XD So I'm going to use it goshdarnit!
I think I prefer using blue ballpoint as opposed to plain black. It adds to the pic.
Hope your summers are going well! I'm in summer school AND am working. This is the unlaziest summer I've ever had *cries* Comments (7) |

I'm not gone. I'm waiting for a new keyboard to be delivered for my laptop. For those who know what happened to it a while back, it got worse. XD;
Meaning, til I get it, I can't scan in my stuff from the last two months. Including your thing, Chaos. ;_; Be back soon...ish. Comments (7) |

I'm suprised that some of you were taking me seriously in yesterday's post. Not all of you seemed to notice the complete language change (no capitalization and the like). Cripes, I used "lol" 8 times. XD 8! I've never used "lol" here. I thought that new "original" character would've given it away for sure. I mean, what a Mary Sue XD Chaos and Ace got it though *high-fives with gusto*
Anyway, newish theme. Daisies are my favorite flowers.
Oh, and to you, Par-fait: I don't really know when Mizumachi pops up. I really need to catch up with the scanlations. I haven't even gotten to the Poseidon team! *shame* I've been too busy fangirling over the actual volumes that I bought last week. :3
EDIT: It's way too light out. I really don't like Daylight-Savings >_> I'd rather have more morning hours than afternoon hours anyway (is a morning person) Comments (6) |
