soooooo behind....

I think I figured out what my issue is lately.  Lately being the last year or so.  I spend so much creative energy at work and class that I have little to none left for my personal stuff.  *lesigh*

However, this is my last big semester!  I'm taking a couple extra classes afterwards to get a certificate in UX/UI, because why not?  XD  But yeah, the main part will be done.  Then maybe I can get back to my own stuff.

For those I haven't talked to in a long time, I hope you're still around!  I'm not as active online as I used to be, but I'm going to make a point to check in at least a couple times a week to see what people are doing......of course it'll take me a few weeks to go through the backlog *ahem*.....

SEMESTER IS OVER!!

Journal Entry: Mon May 16, 2016, 9:44 AM
 
 
 
commentary
 
 


So yay!  There was a lot of projects to do this semester, and two of my classes were in things I have no actual experience in, so there were a lot of late nights.  One thing I learned is that I really enjoy digital photography!  Enjoyed it enough that I went and bought a new camera.  I had borrowed a friend's to do the class with because I didn't want to spent $1000+ on a hobby I'm not going to enjoy.  But, considering the fact that HSpoon commented that he hadn't seen me so interested in a class yet and the fact that I have ideas for shoots now, yeah.  New camera.  XD  I will probably post some up here from time to time because why not?

Anyhoo, have some projects in mind for this summer:

- Vinyl stickers.  I keep meaning to get on that, but not really feasible during school.  I'll have the summer to build up a library and figure out custom prices.  Thinking of using Etsy, but not decided yet.

- New website stuff.  I need a new layout for my main site, my portfolio, my graphic site, and going to make a new one for a photography portfolio.  Have ideas and mocks, just haven't gotten around to coding them yet.  That's a big one I want to do this summer.

- Revamp commission arts.  Again, might use Etsy for this, though I'll post about it here.  I need to sit down and figure actual time and cost instead of guesstimating.  Means the price will go up.  Don't know if that will help, but we'll see.  If you want to commission art at a lower price, better contact me before I change them!  If we start the process before I change the price, you'll get the lower price.

- Finish some character arts.  I have several I've started but not finished.  I'm going to try and get those done as well.  It's not high on my priority list, but it is there!

- Photos for Sakky!  I promised some car stock drawing photos when I got my new car, and now that it's sunny and warm outside, after Akon that will occur.  Have no idea if any of them will be useful, but I need the practice anyways.  Yeah, that's it.  It's not an excuse to play with my new toy!   XD

------------

I also want to apologize for the fact that I haven't been in touch with people too often.  The past few years have been rather stressful with school, work and other personal things.  I'm the kind of person that tends to withdrawal when that happens, so talking to people when I'm not having a good time is very hard for me to do.  Mostly because I'm a pity whore, and if I start getting attention for sad things, I will spiral down into full pity whore mode!  Still, I do feel bad that I've dropped out of contact with some people.  There are people here at DA that I know over AIM, but since I don't have it on during work, I never get to talk to them anymore.  I have other friends that I've simply lost touch with, which I don't like but don't know what to do about it.  It's that cycle where I feel guilty about not emailing them so I don't, which makes me feel even more guilty!  Anyone have any suggestions for that?

Question for commission artists

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 26, 2016, 8:06 AM
 
 
 
commentary
 
 


So, how do you figure your prices?  I'm going through and reorganizing things, but I find myself uncertain of how much to charge for things.  I don't really have a set time on arts, some take longer than others but I've never timed myself so I have no idea how to go about setting prices properly.

almost done with the semester!

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 9, 2015, 5:15 PM
 
 
 
commentary
 
 


My last week of classes until January!  Plus, I will be getting more hours starting next month, which is handy.  Mostly because I can afford a larger car payment so I now have a Mazda3 Grand Touring!  w00t!!!  *happy dance*  Also thinking about starting commissions from people that have been on my list for a while.  Going to give it a few months to make sure everything is good in terms of bills and whatnot.

Taking three classes next semester, but I don't think any of them include much in the way of drawing, so hopefully I'll feel like actually working on other art again.  That's been an issue for me; I spend so much time drawing things for class that I just don't want to do other things.  I'll have some more class art to upload soon, and have some sketching that I'm almost done with.

I've also been getting into painting gaming minis again.  I've figured out how to prop the fig I'm working on so my shaky hands don't screw it up that much, and I've discovered that for larger figs, I do much better with detail.  So I've been roped into painting several dragons for HSpoon's game.  XD  So I may take some pictures of that just for fun.  We'll see.


In other news, if I owe someone art for something, just let me know!  This past year and a half has really been busy r/l, so there's a chance something got lost in my stuff.  ><

Vinyl cutter for my birthday!!!  So, after I get some priority sketching done, I'm going to play with it.  One of the reasons for getting it is that I thought it would be neat to sell cool and maybe custom vinyl stickers.  So I'll play with that and maybe post some ideas to see if it's something people would like.  Now, on to sketching that I've been unable to get to.  *headdesk*

So, yay, AKon!  Lots of fun, saw some informative panels, including one on building a steampunk character.  And somehow during the panel, I got shanghied into being the librarian of an airship school.  Basically, the steampunk version of Magic School Bus.  XD  Should be entertaining, looking forward to seeing where it goes.  Got some other ideas for things, and now that the semester is over, I'm going to try and go back to a sketch day once a week to get back into the swing of things.  I'd really like to restart up the art commissions, but I need to get my hand back in.  Poke me if you haven't seen new arts from me for a couple of weeks!!

back?

Class is over for the semester yay!  Does this mean I'm back?  Well........kinda.  Thing is, I've lost a lot of desire to do graphic things lately.  I can't tell if that's just because of what I was doing for classes or something else.  I am working on final character pictures for the Runelords group since we finished that game (and survived!), which I'm trying out painting with my tablet.  Also finding out that my laptop is NOT the best place to do that since I can't judge colors very well on it.  ><  Still, I'm working on it.  Also trying to do the lineart in Photoshop, though I'm not sure that's looking good either.  Bluargh.

I've also got do decide what to do with websites.  The GWG needs a new layout and I have stuff to add, just never got around to it.  I'll probably put it in archive mode afterwards, unless someone sends me something.  My regular site also needs an overhaul, and I'm still debating what to do with my free graphics site.  I think the direction I'm leaning is toward providing other graphic things, and maybe tutorials.  Don't know that anyone will follow it, but I've done some vector stuff over the years, and I need to redo some of my older tutorials now that I've learned more things.  More on that when I get closer to getting it revamped.

Anyhoo, AKon next weekend, and I since I don't have any classes this summer, I'm working some extra hours, which goes towards the rest I need for a new gaming PC.  Finally, I'll get the play Inquisition and have it look right!  XD

Edit: I forgot I have a to-do list down there!  So it's now updated.  Go go gadget faulty memory!  Also Fallout 4 is coming!!!!!!  *happy dance*

21 Days and commission info

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 28, 2015, 11:48 AM
 
 
 
commentary
 
 


So, 21 Days of Creative Stuff is coming up, starting Feb 1st.  Basically, I do something creative every day, be it sketching, coloring, or random crafts.  My goal is to go 21 days in  a row, and then try to finish out the month of February, just to see if I can.  I'll be making every effort to follow it again this year, and we'll see what happens.  Feel free to join in! 

Also, commissions are still available.  I will be revisiting that in a couple of months and may end up changing the prices, so now would be a good time to get in on it!

Also also, I need a new journal skin.  Suggestions?

Also, reconnections!

Ok, I am back.  My only actual resolution this year is to reconnect with my online friends.  Things have changed, and I'm sure some have moved away from DA and on to other things.  But I've been feeling bad that I've been out of touch and slacking on getting back in.  Part of that reason is the move.  We moved to an apartment in June, then into our house first of this month, so things have been haywire at home.  I've also been busy with classes and freelance work.  I don't mention all that as excuses, but at reasons.   I've moved away from AIM, simply because it's eaiser to use Google Plus at work, so if you want my Plus info, just let me know.  Probably not going to do much of anything on Facebook, and I've never done much of anything with Twitter, but I'll try to keep things updated.  I don't have a drawing class this semester.  In fact, I don't know that any of my classes this semester will be hard.  Well, except walking, and that's just because I have to get up at the buttcrack of dawn on Saturday for it.  *headdesk*  And I've started back up sketching character art again, so I'm hoping to get back on that wagon.

Anyhoo, that's my story right now.  Things are finally calming down, so I'll be checking here again at least once or twice a week.  I will be going throug the HUGE backlog of watched stuff.  I probably only fav and run things right now, but I will look at everything.


ALSO!

If I owe you any art, I want to apologize most sincerly and ask you to remind me so I can get that out as soon as possible!!  I may not owe anyone anything, but I keep getting the feeling that I do, and that bugs me.  ^_^;  So, art dump in progress, and hopefully I'll see some of you online soon.

So.....

Hi!

Yeah, this semester has been kicking my ass.  I am working part time again, doing some freelance, and taking classes.  One class is not a problem (come on, how to use Illustrator?), but Drawing 1 is a big challenge because I normally don't do much physical medai.  I'm learning, and I have finally tamed pastels with the proper paper, but yeah, lots of time spent making things work.  ><  I have one more project in that class, and when I finish getting things back, I will post some.  There are some of the things we did that I like how they came out.  Unfortunatly, they're all on big paper, so they're photos, but hey, it works!  XD

Other news: we are moving in a few months!  It's a bit of a sudden decision, but I think it'll work out in the long run.  Of course, that means we have to get this house ready to sell and HOLY CRAP WE HAVE A LOT OF STUFF!  I really hate moving because I hate having to pack and then unpack.  But we'll have a bigger house and a great yard, so it'll work out.

I know that I owe art, and I will be finishing that as soon as I get this final project done.  I'm hoping to get back to my art this summer after the move is done,  I still have ideas, just haven't gotten them down on paper.  I have a shit-ton of messages, so if I don't respond or fav and run, know that I did look at everything!  ^_^;

So, it occurs to me there might be a one or two people who wonder where I've been.  The past six months have been crazy and I've really been slacking on arts!  There's several reasons, actually.  1:  I started my degree for Graphic Design in the fall, which took a lot of my free time.  I'm hoping this coming semester I'll have a better handle on things and be a little more active here.  2: I started a new job.  It's only part time, but I'm making about what I was full time elsewhere, so I'm good there. 

And 3: I seem to have lost motivation do anything productive.  Part of that is that 5 months of not working on drawing means I'm really sucking right now and it's discouraging.  But it's also that I just can't find motivation for most things anymore, and I'm not sure why.  Once I get started on something, I do good.  Just don't want to get started.  I guess that's my lazy side demanding attention, I don't know.  XD  But I have started sketching again, even though it sucks, because I have a picture I need to get ready in a couple of months, so I want to get it going!  (more on that when it's done)

I did get an AWESOME new monitor for Christmas, as well as a shelf/desk combo!  So, I have more room to do things on.  HSpoon is determined to fix up my office so it has everything I need, which is rather encourging, I have to say.  Next on the list is an art table.  And, a light box.  I think that'll help with inking lines so I don't have to worry about screwing up the sketch.  Also, a good place to paint figs!  XD  I'm also taking Drawing 1 this semseter, and plan on taking Figure Drawing next fall. So, at the very least, I'll have classwork I can post for comments.  Well, if anyone actually does comment, doesn't seem to happen that much anymore.  Still, it'll be something!  I've also got Trillian on my laptop, which I bring to work, so if you see me on, feel free to say hi!

Anyhoo, that's all on this end.  I'm sorry I've been so sucky and keeping in touch with people.  It's a nasty cycle where I forget to write, then feel guilty about it so I put it off more and then feel more guilty and so on.  ><  But I'm going to try and get back in touch with people again.  So, I'll try to post here more regularly and see if I can keep it up.

And I have no way to end this journal except to trail off randomly, so that's what I shall do.  XD

Edit: Also, I have a shit-ton of messages in my box!  I'll look through them, but I probally won't comment on too many of them, though I'll fav the ones I like.  Once i clean it out, I can get back to actually paying attention to things again!

So, breakdown of what's going on.  ^_^

Started class a few weeks ago.  I have three night classes, and so far so good.    Since a lot of the work for those classes is art of some form, I'll be uploading finished things here.  Mostly just for the heck of it, but critiques will always be welcome!

Still looking for a job, but doing some freelance stuff right now. 

Ummm.....the marker trade is still open.  Only two people so far wanted to participate, but I'm leaving it open for the foreseeable future.

Oh, I have a new toy!  To make classes and working freelance eaiser, we found a laptop on sale at Costco, so I now have a shiney new touchscreen laptop!  And yes, Windows 8 still isn't that good, but as it was made for touchscreen, it's about as useful as 7 is, so it's ok.  It is kinda fun to have a touchscreen, though.  It's so futuristic!  XD

Anyhoo, that's it for here.  Hope everyone else had a good summer!  Now to catch up on my messages....><....

It occurs to me that some people might actually wonder why I disappeared.  Well, many changes on my end.

First off, I quit my job.  The drive was such a pain, and while the people were good and my actual job I liked, everything else kinda sucked.  But that means I'm now unemployed and still hunting for a job.  I've gotten a few free-lance jobs, but I'm not going to get enough to make any kind of money to help with bills and stuff, so trying to find an actual job.

Which leads to number two.  Starting this fall, I will be working towards my associates degree in graphic arts.  I'm having to do a student loan, which sucks, but I'm hoping that having that degree checkmark on my resume will help me get the interview.  And if I can get the interview, I can show off my portfolio and prove that yes, I'm good at this!  There's also the fact that I'm entierly self-taught in graphic design, so I know there's a lot more I can learn.  I don't know it yet because I haven't run across a need to learn it to finish a job.  ^_^;

But with all that, I've been really down lately and, again, sucking at arts.  I did sketch a couple of things that amused me, and I'm going to finish up all of them, but I'm having a lot of trouble getting sketches right.  And yes, I am going to take a class or two on figure drawing, even though it's not in my class load, because having someone in person show me seems to be the best way for my brain to fix whatever it is I'm doing wrong.  So we'll see.


I am still taking commissions!  Now that I'm technaclly free lance, that's something I wish I could get to pick up.  Maybe I'll go back to ebay, that worked a couple of times.

Just got back from AKon, and had a very good time!  ^_^  I got to go to all three Copic panels, and learned some nifty things I hope to be able to pull off on my own!  At the very least, it gave me some ideas to practice on.  I also got a carrying case for my set, as well as some multi-liners so I can actually do lines the Copics won't smear.  Now all I need is  a light box and more ability, and I'll be set!  XD

HSpoon also got me a starter set of Reaper paints for minis.  I've been painting over at a friend's house with her paints for a while, but while I do enjoy our painting parties, it would be handy to have my own set for home.  Plus, he's got lots of older minis that need paint, as well as a metric shit-ton coming in from the Reaper kickstarter, so this is now my new hobby, wether I like it or not.  XD  But I do like it, so it's ok.

So, anyhoo, I'll be practicing sketching again, seeing what I can come up with.  I had some ideas, we'll see how they pan out.  ^_^

So, I've been sketching off and on, and I'm having trouble getting anything done.  A large part of that is that I see something wrong, erase and redraw MANY times, it still doesn't come out good so I give up.  I understand the concept of just random sketching helping you improve, but I can't seem to work past my "this must be completed!" mindset.  So, I'm curious if others have had that issue, and if so, how you worked it out.

Art Trades

Ok, so, I saw this idea and thought it might be a good way to get me motivated for arts again.  See, I learned something about myself.  Unless I have a clear plan for one my characters or there's someone waiting on something, I tend to slack on the art front because I get so many ideas and just feel swamped.  I also really need to work on doing ink lines by hand and finding a pen that I think works well with it.  So to kill two birds with one stone, I'm going to offer art trades!  The catch is, you'll need to finish yours first.

1: Look at the list below and pick a character you'd like to draw, and get crackin!  It can be any of the characters there, or if I've missed one of mine that you like a lot, that's fine too.  Basicly, any in this folder are fair game.

2: Draw that character in your favorite medium.  Which means hand-drawn, CG, detailed sketch, pixel, etc.  Hell, if you wanted to a do a sculpture I will praise you forever and find the money to have it shipped to me.  XD  However, no doll makers or traces!  Bases are ok, and of course pose refereneces are as well, but I want to see what YOU can do, not what you can edit.

3. Post a comment or send me a note with your completed piece so I can add it to my favorites and drool over it.  Also include one of your characters you want me to draw.   Pictures are best for references, but if you have a very detailed description, that's fine too.

4. In return, you will get a hand-drawn, inked and colored image!  Well, a scanned one. (though, if you want to pay shipping, I will ship it to you)  Just be aware that I don't have full range of Copics yet, espically of blues, but I will get as close as I can.  If you prefer one of my CG coloring jobs, I'm more than happy to do so, just make sure you tell me.

5. Be aware that I may be a bit slow since I'm having to retrain my brain at this.  But I WILL finish your artwork as soon as I can!

6. I may add to this list, as I do have a couple more characters I'd LOVE to see artwork for, but don't really have a written or drawn reference yet.  ><

7. This will be ongoing until I get to a point where I have a lot to catch up on.  In which case, it'll be put on hold, but I don't plan on ending this in the near future.   I may also change the art styles or just open it up to whatever style I feel best suits, but for now, I'm focusing on hand drawn.

I have multiple others if you want to go through my gallery, but those are the ones I work on the most.  ^_^

RPG:
Brooklynn - Barbarian, two-weapon fighter, young and impulsive.  Though, she has mostly learned her lesson about NOT rushing so far ahead of the group they can't back her up! XD
Brooklynn Rage by dubird - NOTE: She has a new breastplate and a new weapon, but I have not had time to redraw it.  If you want to draw her in her new armor, I can work up a description and quick sketch for reference.  ^_^

Ashnira - Rogue/paladin.  Paladin of Bahamut, actually.  Fairly laid-back, good at tactics, patient, but with a slightly off-beat sense of humor.  Protective of her adoptive sister, whom she's playing bodyguard for.

Farel - My first D&D character!  Rogue, loves shiney things, has no issues with back-stabbing, hates the Cult of the Elder Elemental Eye with a passion.  Unfortunatly, she died. But, she may be coming back.

comments / favs / watches?

Comments: I like comments. I apprecate any comments I get. But I only reply to helpful, explanitory, or otherwise meaningful comments.
Favs: I like favs. I like favs a lot. But I would prefer you not to fav my entire gallery. Of course, I can't stop you, but it makes more sense that if you want to look at my gallery, it's much easier to just go directly to it.
Watches: I love watchers. You all make me feel like my arts are worthwhile. But I won't add you just because you add me. I'll check your page out, and if I'm really, really REALLY impressed, I'll add you.
