Hi guys, In an effort to separate my photography from the rest of my work, Ive created a new account.  From now on, any new photographs that I post to DA can be found at :iconcpt-photos:.  My drawings will still be posted to this account.

Drawing Day

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 4, 2010, 7:18 PM
This journal entry is mainly an excuse to try out the free journal skins dA is offering.  In other news, I'm trying to decide what to draw for Drawing Day.  Any suggestions?

My inbox has been filling up with art faster than I can look through it all.  So, unfortunately, I had to remove some people from my watch list.

In return for a similar offer made by :iconxenokurisu:, I will draw a simple sketch for the first ten people to reply to this post and request that I do so.

1. DarkStorm1974
2. AudricStien
3. johnnyanimal79
4.________
5.________
6.________
7.________
8.________
9.________
10._______

C'mon guys!  Isn't anyone else going to take me up on this offer?  People had better start asking me for sketches or I'll start pestering people individually until I get some responses.

Since I replied to a journal entry belonging to :iconfoxkelfonne: similar to this, I guess I'm obligated to post this.  I will post three of my favorite works from each of the galleries of the first fifteen people replying to this entry with a request that I do so.  All I ask in return is that you post a similar entry in your journal.

:iconfoxkelfonne:
1. Against All Odds
2. Still Shopping
3. Tactical Cookiestealing Action

It's been a while, but now that I have more free time on my hands, I'm going to go back to drawing.  My first order of business will be to completely redraw Fyuu-tan - the moé character I was working on to represent Canisius' Fusion gaming club.  My first attempt came out crappy so I'm going to start over from scratch.  Whether or not I'm wasting my time with this depends on what the club's publicity director (or as they call her, Minister of Propaganda) thinks.  At the very least, it'll be a good warm-up excercise.


Secondly, I'm thinking of doing some Alice in Wonderland based stuff.  I don't know why.  I just feel like drawing some Alice in Wonderland.


As to the question of what happened to Puzzle Bunch, that project has been postponed indefinitely.  I just don't feel as enthusiastic about it as when I first set out to do it.


Finally, I've been working on an entry for Tokyopop's Rising Stars of Manga contest.  It is currently still in the brainstorming phase.  Only time will tell how that turns out.

In my previous entry I said that I would have my first Puzzle Bunch wallpaper up before February.  So now it's February and still no wallpaper.  I'm sorry for letting you guys down but I've just been so busy with college.  So far, this has proven to be my busiest semester ever.  Whatever time I have to work on anything has been devoted to schoolwork.  Hopefully, I can set aside some time on the weekends to do art related things.
P.S., no Shanon, I haven't forgotten about your chibi.

Well, I didn't get around to submitting all that much over the past semester.  I've just been too busy.  I regret not having anything to submit for Christmas and New Year.  (However, I promise to get cracking on a submission for Chinese New Year.)

I've decided to go with the name Puzzle Bunch for my upcoming series of chibi-esque wallpapers.  The first one is due to come out sometime before the end of January.

I finished inking the line art for the Fusion moé.  However, I currently lack access to a scanner so it'll be a while before I can begin coloring it.

I thought I'd share with you some of my plans for the future.  Hopefully, all of these will eventually come to fruition:
1. Fyuu-tan - I've almost completed the anthropomorphic moe for the most awesome club at Canisius - the FUSION Gaming Society.  I may eventually create moe for other clubs.
2. Monthly calendar wallpaper - I hope to create monthly desktop backgrounds featuring some chibi characters that I am in the process of creating.
3. A Midsummer Night's Dream - I would really like to do a manga adaptation of my favorite Shakespeare comedy - A Midsummer Night's Dream.
  • Mood: Happy
If anything good came out of this freak snowstorm that hit town, it's that I've actually had time to work on my art.  So, expect to see some new pictures here in the not-so-distant future.
Oh yeah, you are probably wondering why I'm posting my mood as sad.  Well, I just recieved some disappointing news.
