Back from the dead with exciting news!

Back from the dead with exciting news!

Hi guys! I know this account (as well as other artistic endeavors of mine) has been all crickets for some time now. Hopefully that will change, but in the mean time I thought the least I could do was bump a journal entry concerning a long gone April Fools event from my front page... with some exciting news! My baby, my blood, sweat, tears, and artwork, is officially out on the market May 1st! This has been a few years of work for me, on and off, and it's finally seeing the light of day! While I can't take credit for the writing, if you enjoy my art (and I don't think I'm being too silly in making the assumption that your reading this means y

Guys.

Guys.

Guys, I appreciate your efforts, but giving me llama badges will NOT soothe the pain that is being Edward Cullen for a day. Thanks very much, ST. ETA: Wait, my llama could have a CAPE? I guess that MIGHT make things a little better. u_u I will accept your animal offerings. Thank you for your kindness.

So it goes

So it goes

Antagonist is going well, knock on wood, updating in the on-time window! I stopped filling in for a girl at work and thus my hours are reduced by a whopping 10, but I got an art gig that will actually pay me monies which should be starting sometime next month! I suppose I should be productive with my extra 10 hours, so I'm making one of those fancy little to-do lists. 1)Antagonist pages, of course. WOULDN'T HURT TO BUILD A BUFFER ST. A buffer, what's that? YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. AND DON'T JUST MAKE IT AND THEN USE IT ALL UP RIGHT AWAY. 2)Converting old Antaognist pages into correct format for self-publication 3)Antagonist 5th ann

Back to the (weekly...ish) Grind!

Back to the (weekly...ish) Grind!

So guys I'm still watching ~TheReal-OCT (https://www.deviantart.com/thereal-oct), are you? Final round! Are you excited?! I am excited! Also something to be excited about: Antagonist updated!!!!!!!1 The long awaited return is mostly without fanfare, but at this point it's more of a getting back to it than it is making it some big event. Anyway. You guys should check it out!

And Now Just Failing!

And Now Just Failing!

Welp, I'm out of ~TheReal-OCT (https://www.deviantart.com/thereal-oct)! I was hoping to prove to myself that forfeits were not the only way I could go forward, but alas, :iconqueengwenevere: was victorious. D= You should all go root for her now! While I'm sad I lost, I'm glad I lost to Gwen- I don't think I could have asked for a better opponent to beat me. She did alright by STeam, and now its time to back her going into the semi-finals! I am already feeling the vacuum in my life that AatR left behind, but I'm going to work hard to fill it. I really hope to get back into Antagonist quickly-- K was so much fun and so easy to write for this tournament, I have to figure out how

Failing upward!

Failing upward!

EDIT: Progress: 7 Pages done, 4 Pages sketched out: Script currently estimates round coming to about 12 pages. 3 days left (THANK YOU JUDGES!) I AM on a trip, but luckily my company is my wonderfully understanding and encouraging sister, who gets the dedication for this round. I'm drawing whenever and wherever I can- including in the car, on her laptop- so cross your fingers and let's hope these little bits of time add up! Still in ~TheReal-OCT (https://www.deviantart.com/thereal-oct)! I am so sorry to have not updated and given :iconacsmith12: proper props while our round was going on. She joins the league of people that have been too paralyzed by my greatness to even submi

We're Back: A Computosaur Story

Well, the short of it is that my computer is back up and running again. The long of it is that my hard drive had busted, but luckily I still had about a week left on the applecare I took out when I bought this thing three years ago! (Not a bad deal, kids- I don't remember what I spent on the policy, but I do know I saved $300 some here) Also, I was lucky enough to have a friend of a friend who works with computers and was crazy nice enough to take a look at it, and then deal with Apple for me. I was literally able to let go and let Cory, and work on my AatR entry on my Dad's computer instead. So even though I was not quite able to get as muc

My computer crashed. Cross your fingers and pray to the computer gods that this gets resolved quickly!

What's this then?

What's this then?

Oooooooookay so apparently I have been ridiculously bad about keeping up this journal! Nearly two years since the last entry! Not that I've been incredibly active on DeviantArt in that span, but... So here's the skinny. I auditioned for ~TheReal-OCT (https://www.deviantart.com/thereal-oct), got in, was matched up against the talented :iconfrzdragon:, and proceeded to dash the dreams of her fanbase by somehow winning what seemed like a very close match. Sorry guys- I wanted her to go on probably nearly as much as you guys did. I hope she enjoys her peace and quiet. I am on to round 2, where I will be battling the characters of :iconExiledChaos:, which I am currently waaaay beh

I know there hasn't been much art uploaded recently. The majority of my artistic efforts this summer were focused on my webcomic, Antagonist. Speaking of which, I bought a domain and some hosting with the intention of making myself a somewhat less than professional portfolio/art site. That intention has not been realized yet, but some of the space has been put to good use. As of last Sunday, Antagonist moved from its humble comicgenesis home to its new SwimTrunkStudio subdomain! Visit the new and improved location of Antagonist!  (The Webcomic.) And on to regular things. Things to do/ hopefully being done: 1. Homework. Some of this stuf

I love how this journal builds up. Not much to report, I moved a few old things to scraps, added a few friends you kids should check out to my "Friendish People" section. You might see their versions of some of the illustration assignments I've been to lazy to scan and put up. I will start doing my own art again... eventually. But now, off to another antagonist page. Notice: If anyone who watches me has some original Harry Potter characters they want to throw around in a non-Hogwarts-esque setting- (I know you're original! I know you want to!), my friend is starting up a forum rpg- Loch Village RPG, that is. Read Antagonist!  (The Webcomi

Haha, oh Journals.

Haha, oh Journals.

Apparently, nothing that happened this summer or this school year has been particularly relevant to my deviantart page. Sorry, kiddies! I do have some news here. If anyone who watches me has some original Harry Potter characters they want to throw around in a non-Hogwarts-esque setting- (I know you're original! I know you want to!), my friend is starting up a forum rpg- Loch Village RPG, that is. CHARACTER FAQ.--- Ask me anything about any character and get answers. EXCEPT maybe for Antagonist related things. Because, you know, I hope I'll get to the end some day. And then, then you'll know. Read Antagonist!  (The Webcomic.) And on to re
