I haven't updated my DA in ages and I felt bad about it so I uploaded a bunch of shit.
Not even all the shit I've done, just the stuff worth looking at. My Tumblr's really the place to go for everything: 


Not to mention I've been caught up in working on my MSPA/Mobsterswitch fan adventure, here:


(that's the first page, which is also a sweet flash animation that you should totally watch because it took a lot of work)

In other news, I'm still doing commissions and I've started selling prints online! Besides my paypal I now take payment via my Square storefront, here:


All those posters are for sale (Except the Off one, as you can see that is sold out now), and if there are any posters here on my gallery that you want and you don't see, let me know and I'll see if I have it in stock.
(for the sake of my sanity I only listed the posters I had a lot of, but I have more where I only have a few left)

Anyway yeah sorry about dumping all this art and stuff on you all at once.

I might repeat this closer to the actual release, but I'll say it now while it's on my mind in case I forget.

The new Mario and Luigi comes out in August in the US. However, it comes out in July in every other region.
I will NOT be importing it, nor will I be looking up spoilers in the meantime. I do NOT want the story spoiled for me in any way before I play the game.

When the last game came out there were a lot of you who thought I had already played the game in Japanese, which I guess is a fair assumption to make. I had a lot of things spoiled for me because people told just up and me, thinking I already knew.

So I'm letting you know now!! I'm keeping myself in the dark, please don't spoil things for me! <3

Unrelated, my next two conventions are Supercon and Metrocon next month, hope to see some of you there.

I'm learning how to make ebooks right now! I'm assembling the ebook version of that story I'm writing that I've been posting illustrations for =3
Anyway right now I'm making the Kindle version, as I have a Kindle, but after that I want to make a Nook version too. But I don't have a Nook on which to test it. So if any of you guys have a Black and White/e-ink Nook (not a color one, I'm saying), and wouldn't mind beta-testing my story on it (basically just flip through the pages, make sure there's no ugly formatting errors, test to make sure you can adjust letter sizes and whatevs. You can read it too, if you want to!) drop me a line!!

Please?? You'd be helping me out big time, and also you'd get to read my new story before anyone else =D

EDIT: Uhh nevermind I guess. Although if any of you download the ebook version of that story I just posted and see any problems on whatever device you use, let me know.

Wow okay thanks for the birthday wishes guys. You're awfully kind to an old woman such as myself.

Anyway I figure now is as good a time as any for my Megacon followup post.

All I can say is wow. Just, wow, guys. I set some lofty goals for myself this time around and I surpassed them handily. I even kept pace with Hihoshi this time!! You guys don't know, but I have a bit of a friendly rivalry with her. She always does better than I do because she does more commissions, but this time the margin separating us was very small. I am closing the gap!!

Also hahaha let me tell you, let me tell you. She and I both switched to press printing for all our prints this time round, and when we sent in our print order the intention was to get enough prints to last us all the cons of the year.
Hahahahaha nooo that's not happening, not at all, we will need so much more.

ANYWAY. I had a lot of fun. I got to meet a lot of nice people, especially Homestucks, oh god you Homestucks are the best. I can't wait to see you all again and draw for you.

Also!! It's looking like we're adding another con to my lineup this year. So the tentative lineup for my cons this year is:

Kaotic Kon (Still have to send in my AA agreement, but besides that this thing is all ready to go)
Metrocon (Having some trouble getting a table AS USUAL, but will probably get that sorted soon enough)
Supercon (Kept hearing such good things about it, also two Zim actors are going to be there and you know I am all over that)
and EXPcon.

So yeah!! Probably sending in a new press run between Kaotic Kon and Metro, hopefully that one will last through EXP. Whew!

Bluuhhhh you know what's the worst, the worrrst
All these deals on Steam and I have no money, none of it, I spent every dime on Christmas presents and food.
Bluh.

Anyway if anyone's interested my Steam name is SelanPike, same as here, Selanp I think? Some day I will get around to actually playing some games on Steam, like that TF2 I downloaded ages ago, SOME DAY
(Can't help it, every time I wanna play something Minecraft just calls to me, so distracting)

Oh jeez I have to start drawing Christmas things don't I, these things just sneak up on me

EDIT: oh oh by the way I've been meaning to mention, I have an account over at AO3 now. I've been dumping my MSPA fanfiction there and I've allllmost got it caught up with my Tumblr. I keep meaning to post this stuff here, but I probably won't post all of it because it's a pain, but I'm definitely putting all of it on AO3!

Hey guys whatup

Have I mentioned lately that I have all the Tumblrs? Because I do. All of them.
Anyway, as a preparation for my eventually beginning EFTW2 and hosting it on Tumblr instead of Livejournal, I've begun the arduous task of copying the entirety of EFTW onto a Tumblr.
This is going to take forever, fuck.

Anyway, have a look: evilftw.tumblr.com/
There isn't going to be any huge changes between this version and the LJ one, beyond me smoothing out a few minor inconsistencies that can be found easily by cmd+f'ing the pages (I'm looking at you, Selan's last name!!), but if you're a Tumblr person and would like to give this thing a follow, I'd appreciate it!
(also if there's an episode you really like you can feel free to reblog it when I get around to posting it, help spread the word, you know??)

I'll probably end up making a separate Tumblr for the sequel, but that's still a few months off still. Probably. *shrug*

Bluuhhh I'm so tired.
Er.

Well, I'm back from EXPcon and also hanging out at Hihoshi's new place, yaaaaaaay. As usual I have completely thrown out my back and I am dying here, dying

I kid

okay I'm not kidding, owwww

Anyway yeah the show was really great! Also I don't think I can call EXP my "small con I go to knowing I won't make much money" anymore because jeez I just keep doing better and better at this thing. Gosh you guys at EXP are just the best customers ever, both in terms of you all being super super nice and patient with my awkwardness, and also in terms of throwing all your money at me! =B
Also I was gifted a one-month subscription for DA, wow! It's anonymous but there was a guy talking about getting me one so... thank you!

Oh and my panel that I hosted went well. It was a little disorganized but everyone had a good time I think. I have some ideas to improve it next year, so please look forward to it!!

And also thanks to everyone I'm full of a lot of ideas for new prints for Megacon. There will definitely be Doctor Who, I want to be able to please everyone regardless of who their favorite Doctor is =P
My cons for next year so far are going to be Megacon, Metrocon, EXPcon and also this new con called Kaoticon or something like that? Hopefully that one's fun too!

Anyway I have some art to post soon so I guess I'll rest for a minute or two and then get to work on that.

Okay okay homies time for a ~convention update~

Next con I'm attending is EXPcon in St. Augustine, FL, on 21-23 October. As usual I'll be at Artist's Alley (dunno exactly where) selling my usual stuff. I'm thinking of having some contests this year, since it's been a while since I've done some. Evil laugh contest will probably return, maybe a drawing contest or a raffle and I'd like to do something Homestuck related so I can give away some Homestuck art (since I can't sell it, you know). But I dunno about all that yet, haven't thought it through enough XD

Also I'll be hosting a panel! It's called "Fanfiction: How not to suck", it's kind of like that essay I wrote years ago but updated I guess? It'll be on Friday at 3pm until 4pm in the Paragon room. I'm already having nightmares about fucking it up ._.;;

And I just got my Megacon confirmation, I'll be there at table Brown 12. That one's in Orlando, FL, on 17-19 February. Hey, that last day is also my birthday!! I'm gonna try to have lots of new art by then so definitely stop by to buy things or just wish me a happy birthday or something.

Dude I looked and realized that I only finished EFTW in June.
Maaaan it feels like so much longer than that.
Well I guess it has been longer for me, since what with my backlog and revision time I actually have been done with it for a long time before I ever posted the ending
(revisions don't count as properly working on it, shooooosh)

Not sure why I bring it up. It just kind of feels like a severed limb. It's a little weird? I worked on it for so long it feels bizarre to go months without ever working on it ><;;;
Oh but I can't even start writing the sequel, because I have so much left to plan.
Not that I'm micromanaging this or anything, it's just that beginning the original EFTW was really rough because I didn't know what I wanted to do or what I wanted to address so it was all, hey here's some false starts, some dead ends, oh oops Xeno's kinda not important enough, oops, now he's too important and everyone else is kinda fading into the background.
Ughhh I gotta have a little structure here.

Well things are going well of course. The plan was to wait a year but I might be able to start sooner than that with how things are coming together. I still wanna put it off a little bit though because by all means I SHOULD be using this time off to work on ATW and the PH novel(s?), so maybe soon when I stop being a loser I can steer my focus a little more on that...

Anyway the point is, while this is all on my mind I thought I'd ask:

1) Any ideas for the main antagonist? I've got a bunch of new minor antagonists that I'm trying to tie to individual characters, to give each of the three mains their own conflicts, but I still have no idea who the main baddie should be!! What sort of motivations do you think he should have? Personality? Relationships to the other characters? Just let me know what you think would be cool!

2) Ideas for a title? I really don't want to call it EvilFTW 2...

oh and you tvtropes peeps, is anyone interested in updating the eftw page? it hasn't been expanded since episode 150 or so... although if you don't have time it's okay, it's a big page already so i shouldn't be greedy. i'd edit it myself but i feel like it's bad form for a creator of a work to add to its own wiki entries. oh and if i could get more pages to link to it? =D;;; i'm an ass ignore me

ooh i should draw a pretty image for the page--aghhh i'm still an ass shutting up now

Can I rant about hurricanes for a second?

Well, first, lemmie say that I hope everyone's safe, yadda yadda, but I just wanted to point something out.

In 2004 my area got hit by a Category-4 hurricane named Charley. My neighborhood only got Cat-1 force winds, thankfully (and only by the grace of a VERY last-minute direction change-- for a while there its eye wall was pointed right at my area), but a lot of people I knew were pretty hard hit, a lot of businesses I patronized went under as a result of the aftermath, and overall it was Kind of a Big Deal.
But um, I don't remember the media really giving a shit?
Now, mind, my media consumption in the weeks following the storm was a little limited, watching the three or four channels we could get at my grandma's place (my power was out for something like two weeks), what with the cable being out and a lot of local satellite dishes destroyed, but whenever we got mentioned it was all, "oh, and maybe the prices of oranges might go up because there was a storm or something, now let's watch the president's cute little photo op".
Nothing about how who knows when the kids'll be able to return to school, the people on the barrier islands can't get back to their homes, Collier County's a fucking wreck but look how much everyone's helping each other, oh my god how much everyone helped each other.
No. Fucking oranges and politics, that's all anyone else heard.

This isn't so much a rant about you guys in the way of the storm. I hope you guys are okay!! Irene's a bit of a sissy by Florida standards, but I know building codes are different up north and you don't bolt your roofs on quite as tightly as we do (not that you usually have need to!), and of course you don't grow up being taught about Hurricane Prep in school like we do. You're not really in your element here! So I hope the storm is as kind to you as it can be, and that all your preparations protected you. Because preparedness is the best protection against storms!

My rant here is about the media. Fuck them. When Florida gets pummeled it's business as usual, but a Cat-2, Cat-1, whatever it is right now, is a Big Deal? They're ALL BIG DEALS. Jesus. When a hurricane kills someone it's just as bad whether it's in Florida or North Carolina.
I don't know. I just feel slighted is all.

But you guys might feel slighted too soon. Because let me tell you, those of you in the way of the worst damage are probably about to see some amazing fucking things. You are going to see people help people. It will be a... a strange sort of beautiful, a beauty that grows from the worst things and makes them into the best things.
And the media will ignore it, and nobody will ever know.

But it's okay guys. It'll be okay.


(... then again, I wonder if hurricane coverage is dictated more by what weathermen are willing to stand outside in? Cat-2, let's do this. Cat-4? Fuck that.)

Hey hey I'm trying something out on Tumblr, I'm gonna do a thing where you can ask me to draw things and I draw them or you can ask me things and I draw an answer.
Until I get bored with it, anyway =B

The tumblr is here: selandrawscrap.tumblr.com/
Or click here to go straight to my ask box: selandrawscrap.tumblr.com/ask

You can send asks anonymously, so you can request stuff even if you don't have a Tumblr account.

... or, you know, you could always commission me to get drawings that are actually good?? =D;;;

I probably should be in bed. Ugh.

Anyway, I wanted to remind you guys that I do commissions! You can check out the commission info on my site if you want, or just note me and we can negotiate based on what you want. I'm a little desperate at the moment so I'm not gonna be all "HERE'S MY STRICT GUIDELINES", just tell me what sort of picture you want and we'll work out a price. Also I'd be willing to do non-chibis, guess I should add that to the site soon...

Also I'm considering offering writing commissions too, is that the sort of thing people pay for? I know some people who make money off of it, but...
I dunno.

I've kinda hit a rough patch in life, I'll save you the sordid details, but basically getting in a little bit of extra income, even if it isn't much, would help a lot. Both financially and for my self-esteem. So please, if you've got some money and you could use some art or maybe words, look my way?

... ugh, that sounded desperate and pleady, I'm so lame.

Oh, and I've been toying with the idea of selling prints (and maybe eventually originals?) on Etsy, would anyone be interested in that? They'd be the prints I sell at cons, so those of you who never see me at cons would finally be able to get some of them!

Hey hey guys! There were three entries to the EFTW contest and they were all awesome, thank you!
The winner is Thanksgiving FTW by ThuhJesheekuh! If you haven't read it yet you really should, she put a lot of thought into the character dynamics and such, it's really great.
I-I'm half tempted to declare it canon >_>;;

So anyway, yeah! An illustration of it will be forthcoming! Yaaaay

Thanks everyone who entered >3<

Hey, I'm gonna push back the deadline to Sunday next week. (That's the 10th, I believe) I don't know if anyone'll enter anything else in that week, but since I need to finish a commission this week, I'd rather put off drawing the prize doodle(s) for a bit =B

So yeah, if you have something you meant to finish but couldn't get done in time, you've got some more time! If not... eh, oh well XD

Hey, just a reminder! The deadline for the EFTW contest is July 3rd, which is in a couple of days! There are only two entries so far.
I-Is anyone still working on that? >_>;;


Current entries:

1) "Father and Son" by shadowauragiratina07
2) Revolution by KCataclysm
3) "Thanksgiving FTW" by ThuhJesheekuh

My internet's being dumb, what

--oh. Hey!

Well, the original concept for ATW was to be entirely reader-driven. I dropped that idea, but I still think I could use some reader suggestions here and there just because I don't really have time to do research looking for cool characters (eg, replaying games until I notice someone who looks neat)
I already posted something like this on Tumblr, and then realized that maybe if I post something similar on my journal instead of just on the author comments of the pages it might go better.

SO HERE'S THE DEAL.

I want to know what characters you want Fawful to meet and what places he should visit. In the case of places, areas that would be challenging and fun to draw would be excellent!
But before you make suggestions, let me tell you who is already planned, in nowhere near the order they'll actually appear in.
(meaning, some of those guys won't show up until the page count's in the hundreds)

- Kamek, multiple times.
- Kolorado
- Merlee or Merluvlee
- Toad-Town's Merlon. Or maybe Flipside's Merlon. Or Nolrem. ONE OF THOSE GUYS.
- At least one Koopa Bro
- Maybe at least one Axem Ranger?
- Junior Troopa, but only if I can figure out how to draw him.
- Maybe a Whacka. You know where this is going.
- Popple
- Gadd
- Maybe Mallow
- Even mayber, Geno.

Characters who WILL NOT appear:

- Mario, Luigi, the Princess, anyone who knows him and who he'd get all FURRRYYYY at, as it'd make him go off the rails and try and kill them before he does in canon.
- Count Bleck or Dimentio. They'd make things too dark and go all off the rails.

So yes. Suggest some people to meet or places to visit. I know where this plot's going, but it's the little meetings that make the story work and I need help planning those out.


-------------
Also to be remembering is my EFTW fanfic contest, which I'd prefer to keep on my front page so it's hijacking the bottom of this entry.

Current entries:
1) "Father and Son" by shadowauragiratina07
2) Revolution by KCataclysm
