Soooo here's a sorta update...without having anything to show for it yet ^_^;
Things appear to be a bit quiet around here lately, but I have been doing work in the background almost every evening after work and most of the weekends. I've currently thrown myself into a personal project (something I specifically gave up AmeCon to work on) and long-term followers of my DeviantArt should be in for quite a recognisable treat once I've got enough material together to launch it
I first need to get a backlog built up, so it will be a few months yet (at best!) before I have anything to show. I'm also getting used to new software while I go, so I'm hoping to get quicker at using it as time goes on. My new Cintiq is holding up well to the task, something I was a little worried about as I didn't think I was able to get the settings to exactly match my old Cintiq, but now I'm up and running I've barely noticed any difference
My right arm, on the other hand, is suffering a little from all the work I've suddenly piled onto it after years of being out of practice at this particular kind of work XD
MAN UP, ARM!
I have been doing other things here and there too. Anyone who has spotted the new Otaku Calendar website (an incredibly helpful calendar service for all of us anime and manga fans, populating itself with events, release dates, and so forth, of all our favourite conventions, DVD releases, and so forth) may recognise the mascot, Yomi, who I created for them and am currently working on a few other versions of her ^_^ You can take advantage of the Otaku calendar doing all of your personal assistant work for you here www.otakucalendar.com
This month is also Hallowe'en of course! I am not planning on doing any artwork for this holiday, due to time being better spent elsewhere, but I am going to be taking a break on October 31st to GTFO the house in the evening. I am not a 'kid' person, and I don't like having to communicate with children knocking on my door threatening to take away my chocolate by bribery of pulling a trick on me, so we are continuing our tradition of Pissing Off Elsewhere until it's late enough for the kids to be back indoors XD Our plans are, as usual, to go to the nearest Toys'R'Us (ironically, the ONLY place on Hallowe'en where there are no children at all) followed by a meal at Frankie & Bennys
I do love F&B's on Hallowe'en, the staff dress up to the occasion but there's rarely any shitty kids around to scream. My perfect night out
Over & out!
