Just my newest stuff as it comes out. You never know what'll pop up between classwork, personal work, and commissions.

Back to work!

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 5, 2014, 9:09 AM

Thursday I had the first part of orientation at Lowe's.  Tuesday I go in for part two and my first real bit of floor time.  From there I should start getting some hours.  My booklet says to expect 10-39 hours a week.  I hope I do alright.  I get my first paycheck either the 18th or 25th.  While I am making my highest hourly rate ever, I'm having huge worries about it being enough either by hours worked or what dates it covers.  I only have a couple hundred to my name right now.

I'm trying to get around to trying javascript since that will open up a lot more opportunity for me.  We only went over it for a day in class and I got lost very quick.  I think it's object oriented and relies on booleans.  You can also do stuff with time and date stamps, though that's possible in C++ from what I remember.  I'm just so sick of what's being hailed as our "Catch-22."  Nearly every job I look at wants professional experience, but how can they expect me to have that if all of them require it?!

With that in mind, I may take open requests to freshen up peoples' existing pages or take web design commissions for practice and portfolio.  It probably won't have all the works, but it will be functional.

Anyway, 5 commission slots open!!!  Any takers?

Last night, instead of sleeping, I got back to Silent Envy a bit more.  In between the last journal and today I went back and enhanced the lighting on surfaces I already touched, changed Michiko's kimono colors (the one in the hanging portrait), and most notably Helena's kimono.  I always felt the original was lacking, so I made some changes after googling winter set Japanese prints.  I'm almost afraid I went overboard with making it darker, but it has also grown on me.  When I come back from a power nap I'm going to continue, and reexamine her right hand.  By the power of layers, the portraits also coming down a bit more so Helena's raised hand is over it some by perspective.  Also still wondering if red was the best choice for the walls.

Today is a friend's birthday and a bunch of us are going to Spaghetti Warehouse.  I've only been there once but I found it to be really good.  I hope I can cover my tab.  From what I was told there may also be cake, as little as I need that.  But hey...

Last night I finally watched the third Madoka movie.  I've seen the series through and through about two or three times.  I'm not all too familiar with the manga, but I heard they don't really add anything, anyway.  I haven't seen the first two films, but I heard they were compilations.  While it looked really nice, some parts a little too busy, my brain was melting the entire time.  I was waiting for Charlotte (Bebe) to take a bite out of Mami again, Kyouko was going to school with the rest of them, Homura started out in her glasses and braids, and just all sorts of weirdness going on.  The ending also really got on my nerves and felt like obvious sequel bait.  Someone was able to explain why the film took the course of action that it did, but did say it was totally sequel bait.  It just... seemed to undermine a whole lot of what the last episode of the show stood for.

Syrens is still under early parts of construction.  Writing is on hold since my friend is having some issues and needs to focus on improving his job life and such.  He's in a very very bad spot right now, but I'm trying to be level and think of ways to help him out.  He started as an engineering major that went to writing.  I suggested some blog and article writing.  I'm going to get back to character art, as well.  I still need to make a list of the characters and figure out nationalities and time period for my tech guy.  I was hoping to be start pages soon, but I don't know when.

That seems to be about it.  I'm yawning up a storm right now so it's probably about time for that nap.  :p

Mostly showcasing some story projects of mine. I've been working on the oldest one since I was 12 or 13. The next one is a sort of revival of something I tried doing at 10 or 11.
Feel free to talk with me! I'm also usually open for commission.
