A few random updates

A few random updates

Added a new sketch and the latest chapter on my newest work of fiction today... I've seemed to encounter a wierd thing about my sketches... I hate "finishing" them... I move from concept to concept, or just not draw at all, which is probally hurting me a lot. Oh well, no big deal, I suppose.

Drawing again!

Drawing again!

Yes, yes, I know, I'm really late at drawing, but I do plan on catching up... it's just that I have been putting out most of my creative outing on Second Life... I wonder if I can show my work from there on here.... P.S. How in the world does one post someone's Icon in a post?
