page4-138.jpg

AND HERE IS A PAGE FROM THE BONUS STORY OF BOOK 4!! This bonus story turned out to be really long for some reason (16 pages instead of just 10) while the main story only goes up to 138 pages this volume ):
page4-140.jpg

I have SOOO MANY PICTURES that I want to work on.. but I still have to do a cover, an inside cover, and preflight book 4, then do the tutorial that I promised to make back in like may (ha ha ha;;;) and finish a gift I started for my gf before I can do anything else CRYYYYY… I don’t even know what to do for this year’s christmas sale either, christmas is such a big opportunity to let by, but what can I do I only have so much time ;_; BUT HOPEFULLY THIS UPCOMING WEEK WOULD FEATURE LOTS AND LOTS OF DRAWING

in non work news Noa and Jay brought me to Go For Tea for the first time to play games and get fat

And for Black Friday sales I got myself a new video card, ssd and a power supply because my case is so old and I had no idea that I actually have to care about wattage for a power supply LOL…………………..

I’ve been being cheap about my video card during my past computer upgrades, because I wasn’t going to just toss away a perfectly functioning card that costed A HUNDRED DORRAS. But I’ve finally reached the point where I see the model of my card as the minimum requirement for some games ”’orz I’ve also been lagging while multitasking photoshop/games/streams and other things, so I guess my card was finally dragging down the rest of the money I put into my comp ): I was just gonna spend another $100 to just buy a decent one, but after asking friends about how to even decipher between them, I decided to go for a more expensive card to see what it’s like.

I always buy parts for my computer but I never put them together myself LOL, because I’d always be scared about destroying stuff I paid hundreds of dollars for in the name of learning. But the day I bought the new parts, my family all went to some outlet mall to shop, and I was really eager to see how these expensive parts are like, I decided to try to do it myself. PERFECT LOGIC RIGHT, SCARED TO DO IT WITH $120 PARTS BUT DECIDES TO GO FOR IT WITH $600 PARTS… I took so long and at one point my comp was in pieces, and I realized I had no screwdriver LOL. so I had to go on an impromptu shopping trip to walmart while my comp laid with its guts spilled all over the ground. I was soooooo scared that I would fry something or it wouldn’t turn back on, but I managed to MAKE IT WORK!! I WAS SO PUMPED TO REINSTALL MY STUFF ON THE SSD AND EXPERIENCE ITS POWER but I couldn’t find my windows 7 install disk anywhere, and thus anticlimatically ends my computer upgrade adventure :I

And here are some more pics of the sky like always, I am beginning to feel a bit sad about how my camera turns everything into magma in dim lighting ]:

scraps and NYCC

BUT FIRST here are some scraps I drew between the last time I posted and now, I haven’t drawn them much this year at all ):

fistfight.jpg
This was drawn listening to this snk ost of eren’s mom’s death LOL. WHENEVER THAT SONG PLAYED SOMETHING BEYOND HORRIBLE HAPPENS IN THE ANIME and therefore naturally it catered to my preferences very much ahuheaueuhaeuh

throne.jpg
This was drawn like the day before I left for NYCC. I’m not sure where it came from, but after I drew everything, I decided to look for classical paintings of kings to get some ideas about what to throw in the background, and inadvertently realized that I had drawn the Pieta into something totally inappropriate OOPS

And a WIP of a gift for kristen :D

SO ANYWAY NYCC

This is undoubtedly my favourite con of the year now because of its location. NYC has a special place in my heart, it’s close by, and it’s a con that is actually not stressful (at least during the con) because it’s well run, it operates on reasonable hours, and so many helpful friends are there as well. I was surprised I wasn’t that tired even though it’s a 4 day con with dinner socializing obligations everyday (unlike AN LOL WHERE I TURN INTO AN ANTISOCIAL HERMIT AFTER CON EVERYDAY) Maybe it was cus my adrenaline was always up whenever I get to do stuff around the city; I was just excited to be back. My friends brought me to amazing food places everyday, took care of me by bringing me lunch and helping me with my ridiculous amount of luggage, and also HOOKED ME UP WITH FREE HOTEL ROOMS THAT THEY HAVE OBTAINED WITH THEIR WITCHCRAFT making my stay dirt cheap WTF. This is a con I will definitely try to go back to every year as long as they accept me in the alley, and hopefully in the future I will be able to bring kristen with me as well ;-;

The only shot I took at the AA because my table looks eternally the same every con anyway

01javits.jpg
The fancy new javits front door that was under construction the last time I went!

Everyone else bought pokemon over the weekend as part of their loot, but I don’t play ): I did find adam hughes there by accident and bought one of my favourite pieces of his! I will buy a frame for it later, but honestly I am worried about actually hanging it up because for some reason my parents like to show my condo to their friends, and they probably wouldn’t want me to hang this up anyway LOL… I guess I will take it down whenever I have visitors or something idk

jay.jpg
A commission Jay was doing and I wanted to take a pic of it cus it was SO BEAUTIFUL……………. but he trolled last minute and turned this pic into like an anime action frame or something

00hotel.jpg
This is the view of a hotel in brooklyn we stayed at during one of the nights HAHA. the hotel itself was fine but wow this view

And some pics from my plane!! I wish I had a better camera to capture these pictures because I just loooove flying ;; so far in my 3 flights to NYC though I’ve always be seated on the wrong side for arrival and never got a chance to look at Manhattan during the fly around. THE WINDS DON’T LIKE ME ]:

And one night these 4 cop cars blocked the highway for a while and I was just LAUGHING at all those ppl parked on the road in the MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT with nowhere to go lololol

I love my condo’s location even though no one in my family understands my logic of unbeatable view and endless entertainment. those powerlines really gotta go tho I hope they’d help encourage me to move onto a house or something when I finish paying this thing off

Anime North and stuff

Wow ok 2 weeks later I still haven’t posted about AN LOL… ANYWAY AN  this year was really good! It makes me really happy that I wasn’t facing a downhill road after the initial hype of starting to sell books at conventions like I had feared, I’m so glad my home con is such a good one ;-; now if only it wasn’t so fucking difficult to get in every year that I feel like I’m spending an entire year worth of karma on winning the lottery orz

2013an.jpg

I made a bunch of new prints this year and they sold like hotcakes! I tried out a new printer this year so I only printed a little more than the quantity I usually sell, and THEY SOLD OUT… I felt so guilty about so confidently telling people on the first day that like psh this is my home con don’t worry I’ll never run out AND I DID IM A LIAR ): I was failing so hard on saturday too… I had so much to bring to the con since I hosted Juby and Chris and had to bring their stuff and person to the con as well, so I divided my stock AND I FUCKING FORGOT TO BRING MY BEST SELLING PRINTS TO THE CON ON SATURDAY AHAHAHAhahaha Q_______Q it’s a good thing I sold out on sunday regardless and didn’t have any leftover so it wouldn’t have made a difference regardless I guess LOL.

Here are some pix juby took for me of some new prints that I haven’t posted yet!

2013prints2.jpg

Juby made her first artbook (which you all should buy btw it’s classy and glorious) and she custom signed (custom drew??written???) my copy with a veloce ;-;2013an2.jpg

:D

And here’s a random cat picture while juby and chris played with my cats

After the con it was back to page grind, though this year I’m making like no progress compared to the last because I actually have some sort of a life now and spending a lot of time with Kristen ♥

ending with more reminders of how I wish the outside of my window isn’t so dirty all the time or just to be able to clean them myself

stuff

trying out colourizing from a grayscale sketch again, I failed all my previous attempts and even this time it feels weird ;-; but I guess at least all the values are correct maybe?? I WILL SAVE THIS METHOD FOR IMPORTANT DRAWINGS WHERE PEOPLE WILL SEE MY VALUE PROBLEMS.

fight.jpg

I drew her jacket wrong but w/e it’s a experiment/guilt sketch wehhh. I hope I have time to draw more but I don’t think I’ll have time ): I’ve only done 6 pages for book 4 so far because the first 7 are all in colour q______q here are some crops from those pages. Need to do at least 10 more in the next 2 weeks to post next month, which is easy except I have other stuff to work on oops

Lastly I’VE BEEN TRYING TO GROW MY OWN GREEN ONIONS. The first day I excitedly planted them in water and put them in front of the window, and then they got fried the SECOND DAY LOL. Good thing they’re resilient and easy to grow and came back to life……… I didn’t know I would fail that bad and I was so depressed |: but I did my first cutting today after a week and they taste good! I’m conflicted because I prefer the white parts more than the leaves, or at least have it be a mix of both, but I can’t eat the white part if I want to grow it WHAT DO

Ending with epic snow plowing from that crazy storm a few weeks ago
