Well I'm reduced to pretty much this:
I.. will come up with a journal entry. Maybe I'll start making a point to actually post a journal once a week. 8< My life is so boring that I pretty much don't have one. -flails-
[ended] Group stock Kickstarter SIGNAL BOOST!EDIT: Aaaaand FUNDED! We did it, we reached the first stretch goal! 8D
In the chance there are artists following me who would like some super group stock images, last chance to get into the Kickstarter by some well-known (and my personal favs) among stock artists here on devART!
Creators involved - and maybe some of you already follow them:
They all do super stock work on their own.. so... together? It'll be awesome.
I won't lie, I REALLY want to see that underwater shoot, as slim as the odds are of reaching that stretch goal..
Take a look and please signal boost if you can't back it!
Watching: Inside Ou
Watching: Lord of the Rings (Extended): Fellowship OTR
Lots has happened since my last journal! Obviously my scanner has been replaced.. but more importantly, I have a new tablet. I love it. (Anyone looking for a less expensive alternative to a Wacom should check out UGEE - aside from not being able to customize pen buttons as well, I love it. )
I'm back to working on art, and it occurred to me: I COULD stream, if there was any interest in watching it?
And if you're not interested in art alone, and if I don't get myself banned for doing so, I was hoping to stream a movie alongside, since I often watch movies whilst doing artwork. For the reason of not being banned for copyright shiz, I probably wouldn't save the streams either.
I wouldn't be able to pick solid dates - being a casual employee, my shifts and start times are all over the place. So it may be morning, may be night, may be the dead of ni
So-ooo. A quick note.. my scanner is busted. Or it sure seems that way.
Figures, I move my stuff two provinces and after the trouble of taking this beastly printer/scanner combo with me - especially since part of my moving fees were charged by WEIGHT - ... it no longer works. It's kind-of a shame, I actually have a lot of Inktobers to share. If you peruse my Twitter feed, I missed a day or three in October, but more than half of them I took snapshots of and can be found (in gloriously poor lighting) there.
Kind-of an update on things. I really need to get back to creative stuff.. l've been adjusting well to work, but I come home exhausted. Also in the middle of assembling furniture I really need.
Soon... because I've been missing my brain-babies.
I have been volunteering at a parrot sanctuary. Now even when I'm exhausted from work, if I go there.. I find I'm so happy to be around the birds. My
Commissions [OPEN]Mood: Aherpderpherp.
As I mentioned before, I will open a commission slot for those who may be interested! I expect no interest, not in these troubled times, but I figure 'why not'? I am really trying to improve my discipline on art, and a little income would be nice since I'm between-jobs.
So the deal is this:
I will take one commission at a time.
In the unlikely event there's more than one request (ahahahaha oh god why would there be) I will make a wait list. This isn't because I expect to take forever but to ensure the least stress on myself and clients.
Prices are subjective and in CAD.
I will provide estimates on styles. See conversion rates so you know what you're paying if it is not in Canadian dollars. (Examples will come shortly!)
Extra characters may mean increased prices.
What a dusty journal.Mood: mostly trying not to be sad/avoiding thinking sad thoughts.
I guess it's been a while since I did a really personal journal - I've been somewhat just using submissions and mentioning pieces of things.
Plus, Twitter. Tweet tweet, y'all. Hope you aren't sneezing from the layer of dust on this feature.
If personal stuff ain't your thing, move right along. I'm considering opening commissions for a limited time, so ho-ooopefully this gets bumped down soon enough after for those who aren't interested.
In the last year I have felt incredibly stretched. Mostly emotionally. It's been in two parts.
One part has been something I think I mentioned previously but never elaborated on?
*insert brief pause while I look back at the journal from.. ugh..
March NO WAIT NOPEFebruary*
That was about when I realized I think I want to change careers. Don't get me wrong; this shouldn'
REQUESTS [CLOSED]Mood: OMGWTFBBQIAMGONNABESIIIIICK..
I may just be missing it but since now I don't see anymore 'mood' spots on the journals (and since they've been gone from profile spots for years) I'm making my own. 8P STICKING IT TO THE MAN!
WHAT THE TITLE SAYS! Without going into gritty detail, due to a big life change and the need to stay distracted via art/creative projects, I'm opening up free requests.
There is no guarantee which will get done and when, but I've GOT to start drawing on a daily basis.. and if I can't make myself draw my own crap, doing stuff for others may help. Or it may backfire.
GONNA TRY, THO.
Request here in the journal; please provide picture references or written refs. It's not required, but info that may help add to the character(s) is welcome if it suits you. There's no requirement if you are a watcher or not, although if you want to
Captive Prince.. so, if you missed the comic proclaiming my love for it, I'll say it again: the trilogy (of which the first book shares the same name) is fantastic!
(Comic in question, btw.. )
Having just finished the last book (and it took a lot of willpower not to read all three books as fast as humanly possible).. once more, an intense, emotional and complex plot and characters. For anyone who likes gripping stories, this fits the bill. It also well-covers a slow-building relationship between two very different characters with no reason to like one another. Definitely not for younger readers due to explicit content (violence/language/sexual content all around).. but worth the read. I know it's something I'll be compelled to re-read every so often. Those who are for some reason put-off by same-sex couples (of which there are plenty in the story, as there are reasons in the story's cultures which make it quite understandable) may not
Things I didn't want to admit....but they're things I'm saying anyway.
This isn't the sort of journal entry I expected to be making - I'd hoped to draw it out as a comic, but it's so sensitive a subject that I lose heart when I get my tablet/pencil in-hand. Right now, the written word still dominates my creative process. It's always been how I express myself most clearly (which is somewhat why I think those I meet online get a better/quicker idea of who I am than those who meet me in-person first).
And I can't make it funny or cute.
I had the realization that despite trying to be a strong person in the face of an emotionally devastating period over the last six months or so, I am not such a person. Not being honest with myself I'm not. Bear in mind this level and type of stress has only happened twice in my adult life, and only when I'm left with too many unknowns to wonder about. I never forget ... which drives me to the point of wishing I could surgically remove the parts of my brain that hold the memories w
[early] Merry christmas!It's just about that time again and I'm headed off to work shortly. The hospitals don't shut down over Christmas - or even slow down. Last couple of years here.. it's done the opposite, actually.
Maybe I'll have some 'tales from the lab' to share, as I work for the next week.
I am going to be thankful for what I have, which is my bare necessities, my cats, and enough stability to be able to live around the holidays. What I observe over the last few years shows it really isn't a happy holiday for some.. it actually gets dark sometimes around christmas, really. Not that it's reason to be gloomy, but enough incentive to treat the days around the holidays with some respect.
That aside, merry christmas! Or happy holidays!
Y'know, whatever saying floats your boat
