Journal
You gave us the River
”We do earnestly repent, and are heartily sorry for these our misdoings; the remembrance of them is grievous unto us, the burden of them is intolerable...”
This was meant to be an Easter time journal, but it was very VERY hard to write. It’s meant to be helpful for if anyone has ever felt the same way, but it’s rather personal, and I felt like no one wants to read about my dumb life, but well. No one has to if he doesn’t want to, after all.
I spent much of this year’s Lent trying to actually eradicate the self-loathing I’ve had for the past seven years. Until now I’d just been living with this problem, but was trying (mostly at my boyfriend’s behest) to make a genuine attempt to kill it for good this time. I made lists and tried ideas and pretty much nothing was working. I tried approaching the question of how terrible I am intellectually and logically, but the furthest I could get with that is the conclusion that I am not in

Having watched both the Katrielle Layton anime and the second season of the Ace Attorney anime, I am thoroughly gratified. Both were excellent. See fav.me/dd527cp (Spoilers!) for the main focus of my thoughts on the former, and on the latter, it was such the opposite of a disappointment since at first I thought they weren't doing the Dahlia arc -- the train case that they added in and that I thought they were doing instead was interesting, though not astounding. The main thing is they did not in any way minimize the Phoenix and Iris romance! :heart:

Many people get enthusiastic about a story while it's going on, and then move on and don't care about it once it's over. On the other hand, some people get obsessed beyond all reason and make it their identity. (Interestingly, this usually involves distorting the story from its true nature, whether through fanservice or deconstruction.) While I'm seeing more and more that fandomism can amount to idolatry, there's no need to abandon good stories altogether or deny that they are worthwhile. No matter how much time passes or how many other things catch my interest, I'll always love and be inspired by the Ace Attorney/Professor Layton story.

Project List

Clockwork Dancer by Jon Del Arroz
I will complete the lineart for Issue One in the first three or four weeks of July, I have promised it! You can see some previews, colored by Emmanuel Ordaz Torres, on my blog: snowflakeclockwork.blogspot.co…
snowflakeclockwork.blogspot.co…

Bovodar and the Bears by Jack Mikkelson
Working on lettering pages 1-13, thumbnailed through page 18, sketched a new cover illustration for the novel, did a promotional image. Soon there will be a bunch of preview stuff for all to see!

The Vampire's Saint by Corinna Turner
Thumbnailed through page 4.

Paper Doll Veronika
Working on another character doll, and got the website almost entirely ready. Once I've prepared all the materials for the next location, I will make the site visible and you all can read the first chapter! There will be preview stuff leading up to that date too!

Beckyless
I was thinking about this the other day; if I wanted to and had the time, I could just do it and then sell it as pdfs. That's a definite possibility, but we'll see what vistas are visible once Clockwork Dancer, Bovodar and the Bears, and Vampire's Saint are published.

Mary's Mazes
No new progress.

Now tempted to redraw all my 15-year-old, terribly-proportioned Fire Emblem 4 fanart, as well as making new ones. :painter:
And found the Hikari wo Tsugumono manga in English online! After "reading" through it so many times, I finally know what they're saying! Gosh I love FE4!! :la:
Just got a new translated rom of Fire Emblem 4... I'm so excited and when I am I gonna find time for this?!
After looking at some excellent classical realist portraits yesterday (see my faves), had a crisis of confidence in my own work. I'm really not accomplished in the realm of facial close-ups. Was tempted just to mope (and gave into temptation for a while) but when it comes down to it the only thing to do is work harder to improve.
uBlock Origin is great! I blocked the 30 days of Pride for sodomy ad here, and the entire site of Twitter! (It being where I am most likely to waste a whole lot of time and/or see things I wish I could unsee.)
Had a dream about a website that sold "1960's high-velocity salt shakers".
Hugging is not assault. They went after Vic Mignogna because he refuses to sign yaoi. I may not like his Ed Elric, but he did an excellent job in Spirit of Justice. #IStandWithVic
Looking for fantasy webcomics where the characters aren't snarky all the time. Do you have one? Tell me about it!
You know how, in Legend of Korra, there was a sense that the creators knew what the fans wanted, emotionally, regarding the original characters, and they were purposely withholding it?
OP. PO. SITE.
It's just so much more better when stories have glorification, rather than subversion, of fatherhood!!! :iconiloveitplz:
