Finally finished Isabella's new illustration, though most of you have seen it by now. I'm seeing what her stats are like after a week in no groups before I go around to them all. There's also a link to the bg/fg video in the description of it. I'm getting better about the whole time thing on videos. Premiere allows almost infinite levels of speeding up or slowing down footage. I check everything to make sure it's going slow enough that all of the details are seen but hopefully without boring people. No one's said anything yet about the special side notes I've started to add but I think people like them.
Update on my dog. It's apparently not as bad as my brother said it was. I guess that's a brother for you though. Anyway, my mom said the tumor was a couple inches big or something, but wasn't spreading. Non-amputation removal surgery is still an option but probably a pricey one. It'll probably take him a few months to heal depending on the size of the scar and everything.
I almost got pulled in to that Bill Me Later thing paypal keeps sending my way today. I was on ebay looking at pose books and such since I had a $5 coupon for selling things. I'll have to see what else goes down. I would consider it an early birthday present, but these things are for business! I'm also getting around to finalizing the software switchover to the pc. Upgrades! I was also looking at stuff for my classes since summer started and I should probably check textbooks to beat the rush. Same goes with my graduation info.
The spending should be alright. I've been doing alright on ebay, though I think at this point it's just the amazon stuff and the kimono. I'm trying to get back the kimono price though someone said don't even try. I also relisted the ram and asked for a bit more after someone said I could get $35 at most. It's sad to say but I blocked Hong Kong accounts from bidding on my stuff. I'm not saying anything bad about HK, but I heard their ebay reputation was one of the worst in terms of buyers and sellers. This case didn't help. I'm thinking of also adding some of my drawings or attempts at natural media. Anyway, a rl friend of mine has commissioned me to do some drawings as a character visualization for him. The nsfw one (which cannot be submitted to DA) is still a go and I should be able to get the funds soon. I finally replied back to that game group from youtube a week ago. No reply yet. I wonder if it's because I wanted to be paid for my work... Referencing `yuumei
again, this is how I want to make a living and I don't want to be that sucker who puts publicity over actual jobs. It tends to start a vicious cycle of never getting paid or under funding yourself.
Anyway, I may go about making a new journal skin, soon. This one seems to lack polish, and I've had it for so long. I'm trying to find a sleek design where everything also works. I'm not sure if I should wait until my site and it's new art are done, though. At this point, I may start it myself since the girl who asked has been a bit busy.Syrens
seems to be churning its wheels now. My writer took my original story and turned a lot of things on it's heels. Some of it was for the better, though. I think a comparison at the end would be interesting. We haven't met and talked about it in a while but we've been sharing it with as many story-inclined people we know to get a fresh pair of eyes on it. I still need to get back to updating the art, and I think I may actually start fresh instead of looking back at the old 2009 designs. I also need to find a gun nut or two or see what sempai might be able to help me out with. I'm not sure how long it will take, but this one is going to probably come out to about a movie length story if that makes sense. I think it could be 2-3 volumes.
Anyway, I think that's about it. I have my first dental appointment in about five years tomorrow and I hope it's not too bad. I know I may need some fillings and stuff. I'm worried about the one molar because it's not hurting anymore, and I don't know if the nerve died or if I was getting it the wrong way with my toothbrush. I've also been in the mood to get back to trying natural media, but I'm not sure what. I also still need to work on my modeling again and learning the Unity engine.
(will extend upon)
(possibly make a new drawing and do in watercolour)
(may print out and trace for natural media) or the portrait from "New Envy"
Other drawings I do
Thinking of redoing:
