Look What I Drew! 12/22/2014

Couple of sketches done over at Google+.

Oi, this year has been unbearable. I'm glad it's almost over because I need 2015 to begin on a good mark. I am grateful that I'm working, have a roof over my head, and food on the table, but I really want next year to be the beginning of my professional art career. I know I won't be a millionaire from it but I'd at least like to make some profit.

It has to be a year of putting myself out there. A lot.

It also means I have to stop being so damn lazy. I spend way too much time thinking about how I should be working and not actually doing. So, that's the end of the laziness: I need to work on my comic while I still have outlets available (especially since Inkblazers is done for), and imma promote like a sumbitch. It may get irritating but, hey: I want to be successful, and that may take some pains before the fruit ripens.

Keep your fingers crossed for me, guys.

Look What I Drew! 12/19/2014

So I've been reading Boku no Hero Academia and it's very good. With the gap that Naruto left behind after the series ended, it looks like BnHA could be the one to fill it. I highly recommend checking it out!

I've been doing requests for fun. I tried $5 commissions but nobody bit... Apparently 5 bucks is too much for people nowadays.

Either that, or I'm just a shit artist.

Look What I Drew! 11/05/2014

Thank you, Naruto!

I can't believe it's finally over. I'm still waiting on the last chapters to come out, but man...15 years of Naruto. I remember reading the manga in Shonen Jump first, then onto zip files I had to download (you youngins don't know squat about the early internet). Things got easier over the years, and so many sites popped up that it made it very easy to read the manga. Then I find out a month ago that the manga ends in November, and many memories. From playing the fighting games on Gamecube to getting statues and figurines at conventions, this series has been with me for so long and I won't lie that I'm pretty emotional about it.

Here I am, waiting for the last two chapters to come out. Here I am, on pins and needles,waiting for a part of my life to come to an end.

...I feel like I have to do a cosplay, now.

Look What I Drew! 10/30/2014

The Naruto piece is finally finished!

Man, did that take a while.

So I was trying out new ways to color and I'm still not satisfied with the techniques I've used. I'll figure out something one day but I'm happy with how this piece came out. Now I've got time to work on other projects!

Tomorrow's Halloween and I'm suped as hell! My costume is gonna be awesome...I may even post a photo of it.

Oh yeah.

Look What I Drew! 10/27/2014

Finished a commission today!

Sorry for the lack of updates: I've been working on this piece and I still need to finish my Naruto/Sasuke drawing. I really want to work on other things, especially SOMA, but with work and other things getting in the way I haven't had much time. I've got free time this week and I plan on getting some work done and this was a step in the right direction.

Anyone catch Hell in a Cell last night? Pretty good event: AJ Lee and Paige was a good match, plus they're both so very hot...but I digress. I'm heated that Cena won, like he needed another just know he's going to beat Lesnar. Ugh. Having Rollins win was great! I love that dude. In my older age I've realized that I'm siding with the heels more. Nothing against Ambrose, I just don't dig the crazy guy persona.

That ending, though. Bray Wyatt coming back to interfere in the match, and in such a way! The Sistet Abigail hologram was nuts. and Bray's entrance was extremely creepy. I can't wait to see his feud with Ambrose after this, and then Rollins/Orton. Guess we'll see how things turn out tonight on RAW.

Look What I Drew Today! 10/02/2014

Naruto is finally colored! It must have been the lack of sleep earlier because my art game jumped a level with this drawing, I swear. 

To be honest, this piece has given me a confidence boost in regards to selling my artwork at conventions. I'm very happy with how it came out! Coloring is usually the least favorite part of the art process for me since I never considered myself particularly good at it. I feel much more optimistic about it now, and I can't wait to work on more pieces and see how they turn out. Now all I need is for a convention to come around so I can try to get into an artist's alley.

My Naruto project!

I wasn't even in the mood to work yesterday; I was dead tired from having to wake up early. Nevertheless, I'm very happy with the results of my exhaustion! Inks for both pieces will be coming shortly, then there's the task of merging the two and coloring it all in. That's gonna be fun.

 I also started working on SOMA again! I checked the last time it was updated: Over a year! I couldn't believe it has been that took me a minute to get into the groove but with a bit of planning I'll be kicking ass in no time.

Now, I really want some coffee.
