You can pick up prints at my shop!
It's happening, guys. Final Fantasy VII. Remake. I cried tears of joy when I saw the trailer.
Naturally, I had to do some fanart. I've bhttp://squ.re/1zieQS2een making new prints that I think will sell pretty well: Subject in the front (anime/game/show characters) and a strip of background. I can totally see these on people's walls.
I've also been practicing Spanish as of late. I'm tired of not being able to speak the language, considering I'm two types of hispanic, so I took it upon myself to learn. I'm getting much, much better: I'm able to hold small conversations and I'm understanding other people more. I still need a lot of practice before I'm fully comfortable, but this is exactly what I needed: to have someone to converse with so it becomes more natural. One of my biggest problems was that I was uncomfortable speaking because...well, other hispanics can be rather rude about it. Being called a fake hispanic for not speaking the language comes to mind, and also native speakers are much faster and kinda roll over you if you can't keep up.
My mom is one such person. It's bad enough that the dialect changes with the region, but trying to learn with someone who speaks a mile a minute definitely doesn't help. I do have to say, I knew much more than I thought. Minor words come very easily so I only need to pick up stringing sentences along.
I'm getting there!

Man, season 5 of Game of Thrones was a shitshow. Terrible pacing, bad writing, characters died or were put into positions for no reason other than shock value - by god, it was bad. I gave up on the series, came back for a hot minute (because the episode "Hardhome" was the only shining light of this season), and promptly left when they ruined Stannis. Yeah, season 6 needs to be amazing or this series is going bye-bye.
The biggest problem is that George RR Martin hasn't finished book 6. At all. There's only so much narrative for the show to go by, and they used it all up. They have to pull situations out of their ass and the show has suffered immensely because of it. I hate to be one of those who criticizes GRRM for his slow-paced writing, but it's true - He's making us all wait too long for his story and we have only a cheap imitation to satisfy us. It's a shame, because the show was really good up until this season, but that shows how bad the production is if they can't keep stories together once their well dries up.
Ugh. In any case, I drew Jon Snow. He's one of my favorites. This is available for purchase as a print, which you can pick up at my shop!

So I was hired for a freelance job. The client decided my style wasn't what he was looking for.
It sucks to get turned down, but I feel like I've put the cart before the horse with this. I blinded myself with trying to get more money when I should be working on my own pieces for the upcoming conventions. I decided working on someone else's ideas was good for me when I didn't have my heart into what they wanted...I can't do that to myself. I'm going to end up wanting not to draw again and that won't get me anywhere, so I need to do what's important.

I'm way ahead of schedule with my pieces so I may just throw in some new ones and see what sticks. I'm thinking...Edward Elric might be next. Got a good idea for that one.

|The Big, Bad Bat|
I'm thinking of doing a Dragonball drawing in lieu of one of the subjects I chose. Kinda have a cool idea but we'll see where it goes.

|Harley and her mallet|
No new drawings tonight, however; I'm studying brushes and techniques tonight since Wrestlemania 1 ate up my night. Man, was it good! WWE managed to rectify all of their issues of the past year in 4 hours...it really shows that they still know how to handle their product when it comes down to it. Now, if they can keep this momentum for the rest of this year, we'll be good.
And Seth Rollins won the championship belt! I almost feel like drawing him.
