Well, that’s two day’s work gone

What it says on the tin. I accidentally saved a .PNG file over my working .PSD file, and now I’ve effectively got to paint over this, or start anew. Ah well, I will persevere for my art! Or you know, for someone else’s art. Namely that someone else is the ever fabulous infiniteviking who graciously let me slap some colours onto her already stunning lineart. I’m kind of down about losing all the work I’d done on this, but eh, what can you do? C’est la vie n’est-ce pas?

This is going to be part of an ADVENT CALENDAR EVENT I’m hosting, where every day of March for the first 11 days (or possibly the first 30 days if I can manage) I’m going to upload/gift a fandom related thing to someone (and in some cases, just straight up mail some lucky SOBs some tangible goods). Fandoms are going to be Tron and Transformers almost exclusively.  The above image is part of one person’s gift, and I’m hoping I can pretty it up (and re-relearn photoshop in the precess since idekwtf I’m doing at this point) in order to make it an acceptable present … since, y’know, I didn’t even do half the work.

Not a Dirty Liar, Actually

I am dying on my feet tired today and I’m not entirely sure why. Yesterday was super busy and quite an adventure with the dangerous as hell roads, (no, my mistake; when I said “roads,” I really meant ICY CHASMS OF DEATH) the business meetings, the business dinner, the business lunch, the parties and the mint tour, but these usually don’t tire me out this much even in conjunction. Furthermore, I’m pretty sure I went to sleep yesterday, so I have no right be this fatigued. Ah well, it’ll stay a mystery I guess.

Arble Garble, but I have so much stuff I need to get done this weekend and it’s already 1 AM. So instead of doing the smart thing like studying, working or getting me to bed, I’m going to prove I’m not a fibber.

I keep telling people I like photography and have been meaning to post up some of my experiments in the field for, well, years now. So, here goes. Links go to my new photography account on Deviant art.

Take it, and let it light your way back to us.

It was a delicate but beautiful wedding.

Epic Pchat


Not bad for my second ever paint chat eh?  Sure there are many many things wrong with this picture.. but I kind of like it. And you know what? That pastel baby colored dragon back there, ya him, he’s very comfortable in his masculinity. [Could help that VietMan is there, but whatever. ] (Everyone, let’s ignore the fact that she is not wearing an áo dài, but some sort of … weird combination of a qípáo and her original costume. ) So I went back and edited a few very terrible errors out (I hope).

The cut to the full journal entry is very picture heavy so beware.


And that’ s all folks. Things started going downhill at about this slide and Viet even lost all her clothes.

and the final one fixed up a bunch so it sucked less.

Paint Chat

So last night I had the bright idea of trying a paint chat for the first time with some pretty stellar people.  I hadn’t done any digital art since the summer and guess what I learned? Boy do I SUCK. It was so hard getting into the groove again. And I still don’t know what half the buttons on the board do.

Anyway here are a few progression images as I was finishing up my little monstrosity sketcher-thingy-McDoodle. If you squint, you can almost tell I made the picture look a little better than what I started with. I only wish I had taken a screen shot when I was just beginning, because Oh my Goodness, what I had drawn was like the above… but only a thousand times more shoddy.

And this is the final paint chat window. Ya, I know, I have a lot of practice ahead of me. As you can see everything is in Japanese and I have no idea what I am doing at all time.

I did this stuff here: http://www.takamin.com/oekakichat/user/oekakichat3.php?userid=263191

(If Java doesn’t work in firefox, I’d try IE before doing any major unistalling etc etc)

Hetalia fanarts

A couple characters from Axis Powers Hetalia and these are in DR canon… Both look pretty angry.

This is Vietnam in somesort of bizarre ao dai that will probably never exist in real life (thank goodness). There are reasons why people don’t wear these with corset like bodices… and the sheer fabric…. Oh man I really failed. I had started out with the idea of drawing her in an old  French court dress. Obviously that didn’t work out.

She has a paddle and is supposed to look unimpressed by the way. Also, she is supposed to have wicked upper (and  for that matter, lower) body strength. Her swimmer shoulders are intentional.

I wanted to draw a sad Tibet. So of course; as expected, I drew an angry kid. Whatever. I had a more recent scan of this one, but don’t know where it got off to. Oh well.
