So like I promised an art post.



This is part of a series that I guess I'm working on.

So it's been a while since an update in here. I decided to fix that.

I survived my con season so far. Not much to say since it all sort of forms a blur. Doing two large consecutive conventions will do that to you I suppose. Thankfully I've got until August to rest, restock and recuperate.

I will say they went very well. Well mostly things went alright, one day I might share the story of The Business Card Debacle and the Tale of the Executive Suite That Never Was. But other than a few hiccups I had lots of fun and met lots of awesome folks. I also drew a lot of ponies. Boy howdy the amount of ponies we drew. It was sort of a relief to come home and draw stuff I wanted to do that was very much NOT a pony.

Speaking of ponies here's any art post.

So I declared today a mental health day and worked on some personal stuff today.

So we have an art post tonight,


Drew this yesterday on a whim after reading a few too many political newsletters about how contraceptives and abortion with destroy life as we know it.

Me being me vented and translated this into steampunk gynobots.
Sadly this probably won't get finished, I got her innards designed and then realized I couldn't get her face right, or figure out what the mechanic looked like.

and something actually finished and not vaguely political beneath the cut )

Anyways thats all for now, I think I'm going to go to bed now and collapse.

So I'm sitting here at 6 in the morning listening to cheery cheery Jazz music while nursing my printers along to try to bulk up my print stock. My to-do list is miles long and I have no idea where it ends. Con season is here, and it is here in full force.

Me and the apprentice have a convention at the end of next week. We (at least I was I do not know about the apprentice) are sort of caught flat footed on this since we were sitting on the waiting list fat dumb and happy, not expecting to be called, our next convention a blissful happy safe two months away. Our number got called and we couldn't come up with a reason to say no, so here we are scurrying to get everything sorted and handled. Her with school and me with my mom's doctor's appointments, my job doubling my hours for this week and other rot.

Anyways, while I'm panicking and chasing tail lets have some art posts.

And still nothing new for the print books )

Well I think I've finished up all the printing I can do for the moment. So I'm going to slump over into bed for a bit before I go out and run the 500 errands I need to run.

Greetings folks.

Sorry for the radio silence, I've been rather introverted lately and been working mainly on a commission project. Also I did have some plans in the works for Foolish Mortals 6th birthday but all of them have seemingly fell through. So this means there hasn't been much to post or comment on. The commission work I may show at some point but not anytime in the foreseeable future.

My introversion however has come to something resembling an end. After a very long bout of unemployment I've started a part time job. Considering I think my scanner is on its last legs I am so very very happy to enter the land of somewhat steadier pay.

Not too far into the job so I've just been in basic training though in the end I'm going to be in the framing department. It's retail, nothing amazing but it is at a craft/art supply store so I am not completely out of my element. So far my only major concern has been that somehow I'd do something stupid and awkward and they'd realize they hired a woman a few cats away from Crazy Cat Lady and boot me out the door. So far I've been doing a fair job with my "Responsible Adult" act we shall see how long this lasts.

Anyways on that note, here's some art posting.



Working on this for a new business card design.
Not sure if this is going to be the only card design or if I'll have other designs in the run. You know, for the people or occasions when skeletons are not wanted.
Not that I can think of any situation that isn't improved by a skeleton in a top hat. I've heard they exist though.

Clicky clicky for more images )

Also in other news, The Project is sort of up.
Not very far along and it has no set update schedule at this point but I figured I needed to start releasing pages out into the wilds before I edited them to death.


Anyways that all I have to say right now. I'll probably post more updates as I can around the 21st.

Welp I finally finished that bigger sillier piece I mentioned. I just don't know what to title the thing now.



Click on to see the bigger, cleaner dev-art version


As explained in earlier entries I have sort of become a Team Fortress 2 fan. I don't normally play online shooters, hell I only rarely play shooters. Though I am a sucker for aesthetics, which TF2 has in spades, the rather slapstick characters and writing is just icing. I'm by no means an amazing player, I suck at aiming. So I tend to stick to playing Engineer most, and I tend to do alright with it.

Which is where this came from. Sophie my steam punk scientist/adventurer/engineer and her robotic manservant Bertie, slumming it with Blu with a Red spy "visting". There really isn't a good reason for this picture to exist other than I drew the initial sketch of Sophie at 3 in the morning and decided to try to color it in Painter. The picture sort of blew up from there. Now I don't know what to do with it or what to call it.

Will post a better looking version on Dev Art once I figure out the title.

Just a heads up, I'm not dead. Just horribly distracted.

Not going to go into lots of details, but I've had a large variety of stuff go down friends and family related along with assorted other stuff. Helped a friend work a fairly painfully slow convention. My computer had hard drive problems so that had to be dealt with. Plus I got a new monitor and spent a day or two getting adjusted from my old school standard monitor to a wide screen. I've got more stuff coming up end of this week and next week so yea, been fairly busy going in circles.

Artwise I've been working on commission work and making the old comic pages more presentable so I don't commit seppeku when I upload them (soon I do intend to throw the first few pages up online just to stop me brooding over it). The work I post now is not the comic work.

Here, have a random Tannis sketch I did for a warm-up. It's not perfect but I like SOMETHING about it, not sure what it is about it though.

Not much to report here.

Been busy with con prep and playing way too much Mass Effect 2. I still need to make more buttons, and then reorganize the whole button system, and then restock the small print box, and then order more paper and backs for the matted paintings etc etc. Miles to go before I sleep and all the usual rot.

So onto the art post.



First up is this. I finally finished this thing. I'm so happy to get this off my plate, I've been kicking it around for months. More of Sophia and Robert. I am tempted to do little short illustrated stories of their exploits at some point. Though I am going to get the comic cranked up before I get too into that idea.

click on for odds and ends )

Anyways thats all for now. I'm off to shower and goof off since I've accomplished a fair amount today.

Finished this one earlier this week.
Fairly happy with this one, though I tried a different technique with the under painting that I think worked out rather well.

and click on for the rest )

Oh yea, I also now have a Tumblr account which is becoming more of a compilation of ear worms and neat links. I do also post art on there though it is mostly being dominated by everyone else's pic spam.

So here we are, another week, another late art post, and another return visit of my long term relationship crud (the doctor thinks its viral so theres not much to be done besides ride it out). This time it piggy backed with my cramping and decided to add a slight fever. I'm doing better but yesterday was a unpleasant painful experience.

Anyways on to the artpost. Due to a slight case of art block, working on the comic related things and such its not a very big one this time.



Another Nostalgia Card - this time (a very off model) American McGee's Alice. I might give this one another shot later on, since I slipped and made her look more like MY Alice and not the American McGee's rendition. Her eyes aren't big enough me thinks.

Anyways And one more underneath the cut )


And that's all for this week. I'm now going to shower and see if my bedding is done washing.

So I seem to have picked up the crud from my parents so this weekend's art post is going to be fairly lackluster.

This week I was also working on things that I can not show. More comic work, the shop set up, and various odds and ends of me trying to work on resumes, and promotional stuff. That last bit was like pulling teeth.

So anyways, onwards with the art post before I keel over asleep again.




Just a goof off picture of Sophie. I always draw her so collected and neat that I wanted a break from that.

I was also testing some new grunge brushes I picked up for Photoshop. I also decided to make goggles DO SOMETHING for once. They've become such a steam punk staple/joke/gag.


click the text for the rest of this week's stupidity )

Well, I'm fading quickly, so I'm going to go crawl back into bed.


EDIT: I apparently am so far gone I made multiple mistakes in my HTML coding for the lj-cut tags and pictures. Considering I can normally do that in my sleep I must be worse off than I thought.
