I guess I play DND now
His name's Friedrich and he's a cleric. He hates his job, but he grew up in a temple and doesn't know how to do anything else.

this is a thing I guess. Super good because I've been in a serious slump and incapable of finishing a drawing for a long time. I mean I've uploaded some sticky note doodles to insta, but. Mmmmmmeh.

Anyways hey how are you, how's your life? Just kidding I don't care. brb gonna go mod tf outta morrowind instead of being productive.

edit: forgot to mention I started using krita and holy shit I love it.

software practice (and goku's there i guess)
I'm learning to use manga studio! I've had it for years, and never took the time to learn it. I started drawing Goku in the hope of drawing a full scene with Vegeta but then I just wanted to play with the tools and figure stuff out. This composition, placement, all of it serves no purpose but teaching myself. Do you like how I used a pose that makes the only guy on screen look away from you? 

The toning features in manga studio are my favorite so far, but panels and focus/speed lines are real close behind.

Wasn't gonna upload it, but I really like it, in spite of its uselessness and stupidity. End of the day, I think this is the sort of stuff that helps me learn things. Don't let the elitists fool you. Everyone learns different, be proud of the dumb shit, and just keep doing the stuff you like. 

I'm gonna go work on... something. Overdue. Something long overdue.

Inktober dump
I didn't know how much time I could dedicate to Inktober, so I did the lowest commitment thing I could think of: sticky note advent calendar. Because I can work on it and display it at work.

I actually really like it. There are some definite winners and definite losers, and it's mostly my own characters. The toughest thing about it was that my process was totally different from usual, in that I had none. No preliminary sketching at all, just pen-barfing on sticky notes. Next year, I should be financially stable and have my time resourced better so I'll probably do something more impressive. Now for nano... I'll probably break from that tradition as well, and try writing comics for a month. Because I'm a strong independent man and I do what I want.

Some Character Sketches
Remember how I said I'd start doing more art because I had a shiny new toy?

Me neither.

Anyways, these are for something I'm working on. I wrote a few drafts of an outline for the first chapter of... something. I was gonna have a couple buddies look it over before diving into it. The plan was, make a comic, but I'm wondering if I should make it more like a novel. Well, more like short stories, but the point is written format. The point is also that I have no idea what I'm doing ever. 

Anyways, I made these for the characters that show up most primarily in the first chapter. To get my friends better acquainted with characters one at a time instead of dumping them all on at once.

tl:dr; gonna make more stuff starting next week, let me know if there's something you wanna see.

So I'm probably going to start pumping out some more content in a bit.

I just ordered a Monoprice Pen Display Tablet, should be delivered sometime next week. What that means is that it's going to get a lot more comfortable and convenient to draw digitally, so I'm going to try to get my shit in gear and start pumping out dumb comics and shitty doodles more. 

Used to be I had an Intuos tablet, which is great, but I got a cool creative job, so now I keep that at work. All I've had at home is a teeny tiny Wacom draw tablet, which is dirt cheap and neato, but I'm spoiled and have a hard time drawing on a space that small. 

The Monoprice is a really nice alternative to a Cintiq that multiple coworkers recommended to me. It's a quarter the price of a comparable Cintiq, and seems to work pretty damn well (they let me dick around on theirs a bit). If anyone reading this wants a Cintiq, the Monoprice thingy is a solid stepping stone. I still want a Cintiq, because I think you get what you pay for, but I imagine this will carry me for a while. They run about 500 bucks full price for a 22 inch. The software has conflicts with Wacom software, so you can only have one or the other installed.

ANYWAYS, I figured I'd post a journal since I've had abysmal activity since... Uh... Whenever tf. Basically I'm planning on putting out more stuff, and if you have suggestions, recommendations, or dare I say it, requests, comment here or shoot me a note and I'll probably think about it. Definitely want to make more shitty Overwatch comics, maybe even spice up a couple of the old ones, make them look... I dunno, done?

Also started getting into game development because my boss does that and it's pretty rad. He's really good friends with the creator of the Flatredball engine, so I'd feel foolish to not be using that kind of resource for learning. Anyways, maybe some game art in the future...?

Hey you. Yeah, you. Thanks for reading. I know I don't read 99.999% of journal entries from folks I follow, so good on you for caring what someone has to say, even when it's stupid and pointless.

Also, if you count deactivated people(which no one except me does), I have 100 followers now, which is a lot to me. So I feel the need to make announcements and shit because that's a lotta peeps, yo. Someone tell me if there is a more effective way of doing this than the journal because idfk what I'm doin

Hey thanks for the watch. Just to let you know. I mostly write fanfiction and poems. But occasionally, I have been known to write original fiction here and there. In fact, I'm considering writing the synopsis to another future story of mine.

Sure, man. Can't say everything you post resonates with me, but you seem like a cool guy with interesting ideas, so. Also it helps me keep track of things without cluttering my bookmarks. Anyways, lookin forward to whatever you throw out.

Thanks. You seem like an interesting guy as well. I know some of the stuff I post is questionable, but I am glad to meet new people. Oh also believe it or not, I am actually published. I'm a part of this writing group on facebook and together we published an anthology story. It's on Amazon.

Wow, that's neat. It might be good for me to read someday, if I need to write poems or lyrics for my lore. I don't have a lot of experience with those things.
