I really need to be doing this more often, ne? ^^;

Askblog artyness


You might have noticed the flurry of activity I've had of late. If you haven't been looking much into it, it's because I'd decided to upload a bunch of images related to my askblogs. Askblogs, for those who don't know, are kind of like interactive webcomics - readers submit questions or prompts, and the characters "answer" them.

I myself have two askblogs, which I'd been using to practice drawing poses, not procastinating, and doing art solely on the computer (as opposed to sketching and scanning it).

One is for a Friendship Is Magic original character named 'Floam':

The Pony Doctor's TARDIS - Exterior by MarkKB The Pony Doctor's TARDIS [Final] by MarkKB Floam Backstory Concepts by MarkKB

And the other is for my Lilo & Stitch OC experiments - 419, 426 and 628:

Where 419 Wants To Go The Most by MarkKB Where 426 Wants To Go The Most by MarkKB Where 628 Wants To Go The Most by MarkKB

You can visit the one for my experiments at theexperimentaltrio.tumblr.com…, if you are curious enough. As for the pony one, I'm not confident in it as is and kind of want to work up the story arc I have planned for that one, but haven't had time recently to do so, so I won't be linking it yet (although it's easy enough to find if you really want to.)

"Proper" art


For the most part, the askblog stuff was all drawn last year or the year before at various points in time. In my last journal I promised I'd be drawing more in the future, but, apart from a bit here and there I've had not a lot of time to do it. :(

I will be submitting one more piece that I'd done a while back, the first page of a multi-page comic that I'd been holding on to for the completion of the rest of the pages, but I've since realised that if it's going to take so long I might as well submit the first piece now. (For those who have been following me since literally years ago, the title, Exchange, might sound familiar. ^^ )

There are also two more artistic pieces that I've worked on this year that are now finished, both of them character reference sheets. One of them I'd been procrastinating on for a while, and the other's a lot newer. Be warned that I tend to write somewhat long notes (even for me!) with my character sheets (you only need to look at the reference sheets for Experiment 419 and Experiment 426 for proof of that!)

Other works on the horizon include:
  • A Series of Tubes, which depicts a scene from one of my fanfics
  • 99 Red Balloons, a Lilo & Stitch pic inspired by the titular song
  • a couple of pictures intended to depict scenes from a animation I'm working on
  • Triumphant, a picture for the (fairly crazy) animé Kyouran Kazoku Nikki
  • The Oncoming Storm, a Doctor Who pic
  • Some additions for the Stuff I Like series of pics
  • Some "poster"/"cover" art for various fanfics
  • Some original art I still haven't gotten around to
  • Other things I'm not planning on talking about right now. ^^;

I put this list here partially in order to put pressure on myself to actually commit to finishing these. ^^;

Adding art to groups


I've also been adding some of my old stuff to relevant groups. If you're watching a group and have already seen some of it, sorry! ^^;

Extra-Curricular


I've recently unleashed upon the world a beta version of The Askblog List! It's kinda bare looking, so if on the off-chance you have an askblog or Tumblrpon, be sure to click on the "Request an Invite" link so I can add your askblog to our list.

I've also released the first version of a program called Flash Card, which acts like, well, a virtual flash card program. You can create your own card sets, and it comes with three sets for Japanese characters.

Thanks for reading!

I'm a geek and programmer who does a bit of art and writing on the side.

As you might be able to tell, I'm a bit of a Lilo & Stitch fan. That's generally what I'll be drawing about, although there will be some other subjects.

Speaking of, the weird alien creatures you see above are my OC experiments from my Lilo & Stitch fanfics - Experiment 419, Experiment 426, and Experiment 628.

Oh, yeah, I write fanfics! You can read them at FanFiction.Net, Archive Of Our Own, and FimFiction. Or, if you want to read older versions of my fanfics and author's commentary on what on Earth I was actually thinking when I wrote certain chapters, you can read them on my personal website.

Thanks for making it this far! :) I'll see you later, eh?
