The snow, did not materialize as predicted. Instead we had some ice and cold. Slight disappointment but I've seen snow before and lots of it, so I'm not too upset.

In other news, I've been trying something new in trying to up my productivity. I sadly do A LOT of art work on the computer, which means that if my mind wanders many many lovely distractions on the internet are just an idle click away. So instead of getting something done I find I'm five links deep into TV Tropes or discovering new strange things in Echo Bazaar.

So recently I have added an app to my copy of Chrome, called Concentrate. It works like a timer that blocks all websites I have told it are distractions that I should not be let loose on. It's only been an afternoon and evening of using it but so far it is proving useful It forces me to do something besides surf the net feeling sorry for myself. So yay, progress.

Anyways onto the Art Posts, more work was done on The Project but nothing added to the blog. I've begun getting a few pages towards the state of completion. True this will soon quit and I'll have to go back to hashing out page layouts and script edits again, but hey, I got to color stuff!

So for the Nostalgia Card update, this week its my beloved Vampire Hunter D. I've had a soft spot for this franchise since high school. Karen and I watched the hilarious 80s version more times than I think either of us care to admit, and going to see the good 2000 movie is still an awesome memory. And the books are still something I pick up for nice light reading.

But with nostalgia in mind I decided to try my hand at the 1980s version of D. I'll probably draw D again with a better design later. But until then, voila.


And progress of the Adventures of Sophie and the Robot Chess-master is here )

Anyways I'm off to shower and bed, I get to go ice skating tomorrow. I'll probably bust my ass, but hey, it will be an experience.

Sorry for the lack of art post this last week.

I was working on odds and ends of The Project which I do not share on here. I will however say there was a lot of second guessing, a little reworking of layouts and some rearranging of script events. And then the important part of the process where you stare at everything you decided on and question your skill and intelligence for the next day and a half.

The rest of the week I spent in a weird funk (which also includes insomnia), though I did get some stuff done it was nothing really pretty. I'm hoping this week will be better - but I'm not sure, my head is an even weirder place than it was last week. At least watching Black Swan (which I felt was all sound and fury and confusion) gives me a whole new fresh perspective on my own weird head space issues. I may have problems but at least I am not hallucinating growing feathers.

Anyways, weird head space aside heres some work in progress. More of the Adventures of a Girl and her Robot. The girl I've recently been informed by my friend Cyndi, is named Sophie, I'm horrible at naming things so I'm grateful for the suggestion. Robot as of yet has no name and neither does anyone else in this picture.





This also shows my work process, the rough pencils underneath the rough digital inking/edits. This will probably get one more round of edits and one more refining inking before I start plotting color schemes.

Anyways its getting light out and I've got a new book about Black Bart the Pirate to read if the insomnia kicks back in again. I really need to get more Prachett books if I'm going to keep up this insomnia habit. At least by the time I've reached the end of a Prachett book I feel better and more charitable about life in general.

Heres hoping this week will be better.
