I been writin'. I have about half of a story! That is a far larger percentage than I have ever had before. I know what happens in it, too. Crossing my fingers -- but I've already drawn a cover page.

In other news, my feet are cold, I bought a wool hat, and uh... also bought an electric guitar last month, his name is Leon.

Art Academy continues to divert most of my art urge away from Tegaki. It's restricted, but also capable of some very interesting things I've never played with before, and it means I can paint Heero Yuy on the bus! Win win win

I got Sparkle Snapshot in the interest of trying out all DSiWare that could possibly be used to commit art, even if that is not strictly what it is for, and ohmygod it is pink. It's as pink as those photobooth things actually are, and that is PINK, sister. It does have some strong features -- for example I can open any image from the camera album and edit it, which means I can add multicolored sparkles and hearts to Wufei and anyone else I've drawn in Art Academy -- and it seems to have some opacity support as well as a tinted dodge tool. (Dodge tool! On DSi! Dude, now all you need to do is give me a Bloom tool and I will use it on every photo I ever take in my life, even if that means I have to frame every single one in insipid iridescent butterflies.) Plus your edits have their own layer. The GUI may be crusted in Pepto-Bismol and plastic rhinestones, but if I can overcome my reluctance to actually touch it... ergh... get back you on that one.
szzzt: Ash flips Eiji the bird. But Eiji got there first. (that one)
So I've been reading Freeport after reading all the currently-posted Outlands after that was linked by [personal profile] mitsuhachi.

And after I finished I sat down and knocked out some fanart in just two nights, which is waysugoi fast for me, because Blade!Wufei is such an fantastic image that it occupied my entire hindbrain. It may still be doing so...

Nothing really to critique on this one atm. I sort of love it.

The thing is progressing.

When I try to do skin tones with opacity on computer, they look like barf until like, step 78 of 80. I had a pretty good system with just 3 or 4 colored pencils; why are skin tones so hard on computer? T_T
It looks a lot better on this page's dark bg than on white, though.

The gamine one is getting more love than Mr. Dreads there (and needs a long dangly Weiss Kreauz Aya earring, yesh). Mr. Dreads will probably turn out better though. I still don't know who they are XD

Got a thing in progress on tegaki, it'll probably take another couple of weeks to finish.
For whatever value of "finished" I go for.

I will try very hard not to go for fully colored. I already have pic ideas queueing up three deep! I shrink from posting a WIP, because it may bear that shame-scrawl for years! Maybe I can fob the bunny off with attempt at low-saturation faux watercolor.

Anyway, there are these dudes in the thing, and I have no idea who they are. I was sort of trying to convince myself they're a couple of OCs I have, but no that won't work! Art why won't you behave!

I wish I could draw the same person twice arrrrrr

This makes me feel sad for all the WIP art languishing on my HD. I should post them all somewhere and have a WIP-love-fest, and get the oomph to draw Kenshin a background and give Sephiroth some pants.

Yes there is actually a WIP I stalled because I couldn't make myself draw pants
