TITLE

oh my god I’ve spent the past 2 months writing book 5 and subsequently 6 since it’s the same overarching event, and since I knew I needed to get the next book started as soon as possible since I will run out of pages by the beginning of march, I’ve sat myself to work almost exclusively on writing. IT TOOK SO MUCH DISCIPLINE because the entire time I was filled with motivation to draw HAHA I THINK I CAN SHIT OUT AN ENTIRE ARTBOOK RIGHT NOW IF I DIDN’T HAVE TO DRAW THE COMIC… artists know how it is with wanting to draw when you don’t have time to/aren’t supposed to LOL. I am happy I decided to commit to continue writing book 6 even though I am pressed for time, every edit/addition I’ve made to book 5 because of what I wrote in book 6 made it feel so worth it!! I hate having to feel like “wow I wish I had done ____ in this part” after the fact especially when in comics, there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it except to wallow in regret ”’orz but now I am later than ever with starting book 5 because I don’t even have a single page of thumbnails done yet, at this rate I will have to take a little hiatus or post up the bonus story from book 4 (at least temporarily anyway) to buffer the transition ]: keeping a comic going is hard as shit ugh

anyway I drew a bunch of stuff since my last post!

I sat down to draw a chinese new year sketch but apparently my brain was confused about which holiday it is?? because I drew this instead… I let myself tho cus I had a lot of drawing frustration pent up by that time so I just drew whatever I wanted; my drawing ability got worse too from the huge gap of not sketching anything new ]:

And a second league sketch that I started since I finished Riven, this time kristen’s favourite adc annihilating her other favourite champ lmao

I was going to draw a vday picture yesterday but when I opened up my music, this song was there and derailed me into this gloomy picture instead LOL… I don’t know why but this piece resonates with my mind a lot but I always get strong visuals whenever I listen to it, most of the similar scenes. I could probably make a book out of similarly themed drawings, BUT TOO BAD the theme is too depressing and boring and not EXCITING or ROMANTIC or ORIGINAL and so it won’t sell well ]: AUGH MY TASTES ARE ALWAYS IN THE NOT PROFITABLE.

I’ve always had trouble applying colours to a b/w painting but I’ve found it increasingly important for me to learn how to do it because it seems to be the standard process for a lot of people, I’ve tried it here and there with no success and this time is not much different; This time it’s most likely because this picture has like NO colour in it though lmfao so the whole time I was at a loss as to what colours to use LOL… BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME

And here is the actual vday picture after I recovered from my tangent hahaha, AU blackbird is getting more and more ridiculous and cheeky as I draw her LMAO…

IT FELT GOOD TO DRAW AGAIN AND HERE’S TO MORE DRAWS FOREVER

end of year and ice storm

so busy but almost done everything I need to do ;_; the books are at the printer, I’ve painted a few pieces that I wanted to finish, the Tango tutorial is almost done, MY HOME IS RELATIVELY CLEAN AND I AM RDY FOR 2014 what a productive and satisfying way to end 2013 I am pleased!! I have to dive into writing book 5 though because I’m already having trouble HAHA… and I have until the end of Feb to get started on drawing book 5 pages ):. I also kind of want to revamp my site a little for more obvious and straightforward navigation, but that would involve drawing a new picture and a ton of work that I will happily waste all of my time on, and I don’t have that kind of time LMAO….

I also really want to make a new art book in 2014 because I’ve delayed it for long enough. I’ve accumulated a good number of new drawings and I think I can push out a lot more to have enough for the book. I’ve been saving some pieces from the internet in order to have print exclusive pieces for the past year or two, but when I think about it now, I don’t really think that’s necessary or even beneficial @_@? While exclusive art gives incentive for people to buy the book, I think it wouldn’t be a make or break quality for those who are on the line about obtaining a book. For myself, having the printed art of the artists I love is the worth itself, whether or not I have already seen it in high resolution online. Since it’s giving me so much trouble to keep actively posting online while keeping certain pieces behind the veil, I think it’d probably make everyone a bit happier if I had just… posted everything LOL ):…

I finished 2 paintings between the last time I posted and now, and here’s the preview for one!!

In other news, this December’s weather’s been total ass, every weekend was either a snow storm or ice storm, ESPECIALLY THE ICE STORM OMG like 2/3 of the huge trees on my parents’ street are down because they are so thick with branches and accumulated way too much ice. Whoever that managed the gardening aspect of their area should be FIRED because these trees already kept getting infested with bugs and getting sick. We had ours chopped down along with 2 of our neighbours’ already earlier this year when all of our trees got sick. And now all the surviving trees that grew big enough are destroyed because they weren’t suited for this kind of extreme weather, so I anticipate a lot of them will have to chop theirs down too and have dinky new ones planted ):

RIP all fo these poor trees

the rode side trees all basically snapped at the base of their branching and now they look like little triangle dresses

I guess in the sun it’s really pretty but damn it was dangerous for a few days

cp4 cover and scraps `▽`

I got to draw a lot of stuff this week IM SO HAPPY ;V;

I finished both the outside and inside cover!! I am relatively happy about how the cover turned out, it’s so pretty this time as opposed to the usual ~*dRaMa*~ and contrast of previous tryhard covers HAHA…. I wasn’t too enthusiastic about having to draw the inside cover though, because I wanted it done as fast as possible so I can get the book printed as soon as possible, so I filled an entire canvas with meron’s hair because I can’t go wrong with hair… or fabric. I’m not happy with it but at least it’s done, so I’m just not gonna think about it LOL;;; I wonder if I should just use an existing illustration I did that year as the inside cover from now on, because why not right

I also started playing league with my girlfriend kristen since she plays it regularly. needless to say I AM CURRENTLY VERY BAD at anything from getting last hit to being useful in fights. I drew these for her to commemorate our (accurate) experiences

thugriven.jpg
and for some reason I had a huge urge to draw riven as a thug LOL. I felt really guilty about it because colour themed designs are abused everywhere and the design is so generic too, but it was so enjoyable to draw ): I want to make thug versions of other champs too cus colour coordinated designs like this is just asking for it but so far I don’t feel any other champ’s vibe strongly enough to be able to naturally shit out another one like this one. I was gonna do sona but SHE’D JUST LOOK EXACTLY LIKE MIKU HAHAHA

lastly a NSFW pic that I think I’m gonna try and finish!! I hope I don’t get bored of it when I’m done with printing books ;_;
