Haven't been around for a bit (I'm sure everyone
noticed) so I'm going to rattle off some
reasons why. Mostly I've been working away on my Art Trade with Ragenov, as shown below. Anyone who cares enough to read what I've been writing in these things, thanks by the way (and also WHY
waste your time?), would know I've been having issues with my laptop. These issues caused me to have to redo a lot of the drawing due to data loss particularly in the inkin' phase. Drawing Jimmy's incredibly detailed armour just once is enough, three times though... I don't know how Ragenov does it. These setbacks were throwing industrial sized bricks at my motivation and needless to say a bit of time was spent playing The Last of Us online to cool off, take a break, and vent like a mofo.
In the end I gave up and got a new computer, right when work decides to give me a couple of full time rosters. Yay for me right? With the now limited time it took me about a week to set up the computer, move over files, and get things installed, and there is still more to do. But it was enough to finish the Art Trade.
This is Ragenov's character Jimmy Killswitch. He has approved and a long time fan of his could tell it was Jimmy from a mile off so I guess I did well. (?)
That was in return for this masterpiece. I tasked Ragenov with my Bounty Hunter character. I picked him because I thought He would do well in his style (boy was I right!) and because I thought it was interesting/funny that we both have (fairly different) bounty hunter characters (I wont claim to be an expert or anything but I'm pretty sure his character might just have a soul!). In the image description he's got a link to a progress vid, which is cool too.
If anyone is actually still reading this purple monkey dishwasher, you should go check out his work. It's really very good.
Oh, yeah! The Zinefest was awesome (in case anyone want's to know), the best one yet! I did really well and saw a few fans from far and wide. Awesome, awesome...
So now I might just go find a corner to sit in for a while... After mowing my neglected lawns and washing my you and I form...
