It's that time a... er... decade, again.

It's that time a... er... decade, again.

So yeah, the last time I updated this journal was four years ago... with a post of me saying that I was gonna try to be more active on DA.  And we all see how well that worked out.  :P All I can say is that I'm going to try to do better.  Since I'm currently unemployed, I've got nothing but time on my hands, which means that I can certainly spend some of it on DA, getting to know the other artists out there once again.  I don't know if this new drive to become an active part of at least some artist community will last once I find a new job and become busy again, but we'll see. As a part of my new resolution to stop being such a hermit, I've

Okay, so I realized that somewhere along the line, I got out of the habit of watching my friend's DA galleries... which was probably a bad thing for me to do.  I know that I'm horribly scatterbrained and all, and that I forget to even check my watchlist for months on end, but I really should be making more of an effort to pay attention to the work of my friends, because you guys do some really awesome stuff. So, uh... a lot of people will see me sweeping in, watching a lot of stuff.  Yeah, it's taken me months (or in some cases years :nirvana:) to get around to it, but, uh... don't hurt me?  :innocent: --------------------------------------

And I'm still alive!

And I'm still alive!

I don't know if anyone noticed or not, since of course I didn't leave any note that I was leaving here like the lazy bastard that I am... but I've been gone, living in China for the last six months.  Which is why there hasn't even been a peep from me in so long. And also why there's suddenly not only a flood of my work all at once, but also of my comments on friend's deviations ranging from just yesterday until back to January.  I'm catching up on all that I missed, since it occured to me that I really LIKE the artwork of the people here and I'd hate to think that they might not realize that I appreciate it.  So yeah, sit back and enjoy the

Hi! Do you take request?

Normally I don't really, but I am accepting commissions right now because my job is giving me a lot of time off for the holidays.

Hello!~
I watched your Copic Marker and Lining tutorial panels at SNAFU :D (i was the one with the white wig and blue and white costume at the copic panel and full white outfit at the lining haha) I really liked the picture you were lining, I hope to see it on DA! It inspired me to try that lining style on a picture i'm taking a short break from now :D
I'm planning to do my own artist table and maybe some panels next year, hope to see you there too!

Hello, Nuriko! I'm the girl that watched your inking and techniques panel at SNAFU yesterday, and that also won second place in the advanced contest. :) I actually had made two different versions of that picture, and I was thinking that maybe I should show you the other version. [link]
I prefer the version without the white outlines my self, but with the white lines I also toned down a few colors, so I'm not sure which version I'm full-heartedly on... :XD:

I really loved watching your work in the panel room, with the inking techniques ^^ I learned so much! Thank you for having that session! :) I've always had difficulty with lineart, whether it was digital or traditional, and now I think I know why. I'm going to be experimenting with more traditional linearts now, to see if I can end up with results that I like and that I can also use.
^_^ I Saw You At SNAFU Con!
