I'm feeling pretty good about myself right now. I know it's no big deal, but I've updated my strip on time for a month straight now, which is kind of a milestone for me as of now. I've also ended an arc officially for the first time, so that feels good. So I'm taking a 2 week break for now, but not to slack off.

So here's the deal, this break is actually gonna be some for some art excercise. Right now, I think I'm pretty good, but I can do better. I'm gonna be working on ink lines, but for the most part, practicing hair. I wanna work on making it look more detailed, better defined strands and more lighting and shading within. See if I can find a style I'm comfortable with.

I also want to see what I can do about upping my output speed. See, it takes me about 3 1/2 days to crank out a single strip. I wanna try to get that down to 2 1/2. I'd like to eventually put out 2 strips a week, and that's gonna take a while to master. If Immy can do it, I should try too. And the next few strips are gonna take some time, I wanna kick off the next arc strong and get to some questions still in the air.

Alongside all that, I wanna do what I can about fixing up my own site finally. I have a smackjeeves for FJRA, though it's still on default settings. I'm gonna try and get some help from my friends and roomies who are good with programming and web design to help me make it look presentable. Kinda feel bad about constantly posting my strips on other forums, so whoever cares about the strip enough will come to it themselves.

Finally, it may be a bit optimistic, but I'm genuinely trying to get a table at this year's ConnectiCon artist's alley. I'm no groundbreaking artist, but I've gone to this con every year since I've started in 2008, and I could use some publicity. I wanna try making some really good pieces for prints, because I don't really have any at the moment. Maybe some stickers and buttons. I could use some ideas for little things people would like, I honestly don't know, seeing as the comic's not really taken off yet. Maybe do some commissions at the table while I'm there. I'm still open for those and trades here, but since not many are really jumping forward for 'em, I've got room to do some there, which should be fun. I don't care much about the money, I just really wanna do art for others.

Then Frist, why don't you just open up for requests?

Because by this point, I'd like to at least feel like I'm being rewarded for my efforts. Not that I'm not gonna open for requests ever again in the future, I'm just looking for some momentum.

Anywho, that's what's up. I'll be here, working hard!

Might I make a little art request (or whatever)
Now that your style has bumped up a lot, I kinda want to see you either 1. Redraw Click, or 2. Have at Nikolai Very Happy

or even more interesting. How would you draw Nikolai as a "furry" character.
(in the development of Nikolai, he actually did have a "furry" stage, but it was scraped... I may post it on here some time)
Anyway, yeah, what do you say?

As a trade or commission, I'd be willing to do one or both.

Well I have no way to pay, so I guess we will have to do a trade Smile

Sounds good to me. How detailed do you want to go?

i.e. Sketched, Inked, or Base Colored, or full color and shade, etc.

Well, what would you like to do? What ever you would like to do, I will do as well. What/who would you want me to draw?

I could always use the excercise, so full color and shades is fine by me.

Doesn't matter to me, you can pick who to draw :0!

hmmmmmmmmmm.... Well, I will narrow it down to 2. (so that you still have a say)
Either Frist or .... "Black Kitty Girl" (don't recall her name... too lazy to look)

Raquel? Yeah, do her! I'd like to see other people's take on her.

My half of Nik and I's art trade! Fun to do!



Strongly inspired by and dedicated to UC77, COMBINING 2 of my favorite things, Giant Robot Animes and Ponies (Among other things), as well as Hot Blooded Pinkie Pie. Was too late to do it for his birthday, so did it in honor of (Pinkie) Pi(e) day, 3.14.

If you know me, you'd know I have a HUGE love for Gunbuster and Diebuster. Both an easy way to my heart.

Just a sketchy little thing I'll probably come back to sometime. And I'll have to include Funbuster.. (Probably with Twilight as Noriko).

Just a bit of hair practice as I said I'd be doing.

Some eye reconstruction and practice as I mentioned before.

While wondering how to go about it, I decided upon some up-close-and-personals of each of the main cast so far.

I'll go ahead and let you guess which is my personal favorite.

I'm thinking your favorite is either June or Raquel.

(I personally love all the amber colors in June's hair, in that coloring. Looks like some hardcore Highlights and whatnot)

Yep, June's correct.

Also, glad you like it. I'm practicing on hair as well.

Dunno if I'll be doing any pony stuff for a while. FJRA 2 week break is over. Gotta get back on the strip.

Btw.. what dose FJRA stand for?

Y'know, if I ever become popular enough, that question will probably become number one on my list of FAQ's. Right in front of questions concerning Zenobia's eyes.

So.... What dose it stand for?
