No really, this isn’t a joke. You’ve got quite a lot of explaining to do — about a lot of things, actually. But foremost, I want you to tell me why you have this old image uploaded into your archives. I was going through your things while you were out — no shut up, this isn’t about me, this is about YOU. Don’t try to change the subject.

How long have you even had this, and more importantly: why? By the way, Blog, the correct answer is: “because of the baby bunny,” and NOT: “because of the young lady (who thought a red blouse, red shorts, and a blue cap was a good idea for jog-wear)”.

The former is vaguely excusable. The latter, creepy as anything, so cut it out.

But seriously, what is even going on in this photo? Why am I scowling at a tiny rabbit while in the third-worst outfit imaginable?

I can only assume it is because I hated small, precious animals. Or the more likely scenario; because I’m just so innately awkward. Yeah, that’s just the way we roll around. You best respect.

Ugh. I see what you did there, Blog. Trying to distract me, eh? Well it won’t work this time! Mark my words, Blog, I’m going to keep going through your stuff and I better not find anymore images of young girls.

This is just getting weird.

Oh wow, Blog. Why didn’t you tell me how dusty your fanart section was getting? I would’ve helped you out or something. I mean, that’s what absent minded, missing friends are for, right?

But seriously, I just took a look at your fanart section and I’m kind of embarrassed for you. Has it really been that long since we’ve uploaded something there? And how about those Transformers eh?  Never in my life did I think I was going to like anything about the franchise, but backtrack to last January and oops, I think I fell in amour. And I fell hard.

Speaking of amour, or rather her opposite: Spiting Abhorrence, I can’t tell if I actually hate this image or not. It started out as a shoddy little work doodle that digivolved into something I’d planned to use as a 100 x 100 icon… and at some point this started to happen, and I was powerless to stop it. Around that time I made 3 goals for myself because if this was going to grow into a quasi-finished image, then by golly I was going to accomplish something else along the way.

Goals:

  1. Finally figure out how to cell shade (because this was going to be a quick image, and that’s quick colouring… right? Right?) [FAILED]
  2. Actually get an icon out of this image since that was kind of the point [FAILED]
  3. Learn to use Paint Tool Sai [A+]

Oh well. 1 out of a 3 ain’t bad. Why, if you squint and round up, that’s practically half! In any case, I’ve done a different version of this picture and it’s possible I find it a lot less cranky-inducing. In fact, you could almost say it was passable. And if we’re being really generous here, Blog, you could even be so bold as to say that I actually almost like the other version.

If you’re good, maybe I’ll let you see it.

I believe that it’s only proper manners to let your commissioner know how their commission is progressing.  This extends to anything I’m doing of commission quality.

Bloke’s nearly done, I’m thinking. Hooray.

And don’t worry, Blog, I haven’t forgotten you. But school’s starting, and things’ll be a little frantic for a bit.

Rung, honey, baby bolts, you should uh, really see somebody about those head insides of yours that are kind of… falling out your outsides.

And once again we see my attempt to learn coloured cellshading failing horribly. Also, where did that upper torso come from? That wasn’t supposed to be there either…

Dear hands,

Please start doing what I want you to.

Thanks.

Love,
MmeJack

Which is to say, I don’t know anything.

Help.
Help.
What am I doing?

Help.

I don’t know what I’m doing.

 

To be fair though, I am pretty ace at backgrounds as you can clearly see.

Hey, uh, Blog… there’s something I’ve been meaning to ask you. Y’see, me and the guys couldn’t help but notice that lately you’ve gotten this … propensity of posting pics of … dudes with mangled faces. And while it’s all fine and good, and totally normal for everyone to have a thing, well…. we’re getting a little worried about you. This is beginning to look a bit like you’ve got a problem…

No, Blog, No. Put down the ax, Blog. Just put it down and step away from the– NO, BLOG, NO.
NO.

NO.

In other news, I think I really like Transformers now. So here’s a couple awkward sketches of a really sweet, mild mannered robot psychologist who accidentally gets his head blown off, in a really tragic turn of events from a really fabulous comic. I’ve already got a coloured version in the works, but note to self: fix this bloke’s eyes and give the poor guy some shoulders or something. Alas, I guess this is what happens when you sketch in pen, what with that whole no-erase quality it’s got going on. You live and you learn, I guess. TOO BAD I DON’T SEEM TO EVER LEARN.

You know what, Blog? I know you really like that look, but you’ve been wearing that same thing since June 10th and honestly, you’re making me a little uncomfortable. Time to change out of that and put on something new. Or at least something that doesn’t look that gross. Or smell… I mean really, Blog. Have you even put that in the laundry at all… you know what? Forget I asked.

What I’m trying to say here is that I’ve gotten tired of looking at that sad colour-spot-test thing that’s been haunting my most recent post page. Also, I’m embarrassed by how awkward it is, even if it is just a WIP.  So to flush out the bad, here’s the much nicer looking sketchy until I have time to actually colour this properly.

I also mentioned in the last post that I was waffling between making Rinzler tall or short. I wasn’t joking about having gotten a more refined sketch of tiny!Rinzler, and while he looks fine (barring a few anatomy issues I’ll have to fix up) he just doesn’t look as striking as tall!Rinzler. Also, with Uprsing’s crazy stretched out insanely awkwardly tall anatomy going on, maybe tall is the right way to go? Even though this picture is dated July 2011, I’m so slow at art, that by now, there’s already been at least 3+ similar themed Tron fanarts floating around. I’ll admit I’ve been a little nervous to continue working on this for fear that someone’ll jump out of a bush and call me a dreaded ‘idea-stealer.’ What I think I need to do here, Blog, is remind myself that ALL ideas have already been done, flip my hair over my shoulder, and just do what I want. I still might need you to hold my hand though, Blog. You know, for reasons.

PS: that red elbow-y sort of thing that’s going on in the left side there was my sketch for a matching Ram who I’d also put in a suit. These two were supposed to be based off an AU from the 60′s where they were both varying degrees of detectives. Unfortunately that endeavour kind of lost steam, so it’ll just be Rinzler in the end that’ll get completed. Once upon a time, I had a Clu in there too. Oh well, at least I’ve a better chance of finishing this now.

Hey Blog, this is what you get for taking forever at doing your art. Sure, “concentrate on real life,” they said, “it’ll be a good, idea” they said; “you’ll thank us later when you’re able to pay your bills.” Yeah, well, THANKS FOR NOTHING, Practical Advice. You get all tangled up with school, work, and sig figs, and next thing you know a new television show has come out, and unless you can finagle your picture done before a couple more canon reveals, all your fanwork won’t make any sense.

That’s what you get for trying to take care of business, Blog. Leave it to you to take care of exactly the wrong business.

And speaking of business, let’s talk funny business. Namely the funny business of Bruce Boxleitner be Tron be Rinzler be Anis Cheurfa and their distinctly wavering heights. Originally I was going to draw short Legacy Rinzler, but the sketch came out 80′s Tron tall. I’ve got a more refined sketch of the bloke with a smaller stature, but given how lanky everyone is in Uprising (which I still haven’t watched) I wonder if I should retool this guy to be somewhat less short?

Oh hey Blog, looks like my life is this continuous cycle of  never having time to do art but when I do, then having to send off my glitchy computers for fixing. And by fixing I mean the tech people will give it a cursory look over and then shake their heads sadly. But enough about me, Blog, let’s talk about you.

I can’t help but notice that your latest entry (this) is sporting a new WIP. I also can’t help but notice that it was for a picture you said you’d do for someone, what, roughly two years ago? Anyway, nice to see you’re still at that. Even if, you know, your timing is kind of embarrassingly  horrible.
