I'm Updating Better Than Winter

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 23, 2015, 3:53 PM


Deviant to the CORE
One last hurrah with the Core membership...I had 1200 points laying around, and today's six months for 1200 points deal seemed to fit the bill.  So there we go.

Me Smarting Up!
I'm currently in that wonderful world of needing to learn a new program's quirks and not having the time to learn such, I'm just in sketch mode until I find some opportunities to learn the in's and out's of Manga Studio (aka Clip Studio) and get comfortable with the updated layouts.  If anyone knows of any truly helpful tutorials (video or text), I'd be happy to hear ya out. :)

Speaking of video vs. text tutorials, I was playing Shantae and the Pirate's Curse and got stuck at a certain point.  Back in the old days, you used to be able to go online and find a written walkthrough that you could just go to what you wanted, read the info you need, and move on. 


Seriously, I couldn't find a single one, just video walkthroughs...and while I like watching PLAYthroughs, I hate watching walkthroughs, because they're not always played straight to the point, there's no simple way to pinpoint the information you're looking for, and there can be HOURS of footage to comb through.  This may be easier for the folks creating the walkthroughs than trying to write it all out, but it's incredibly difficult to navigate as the person seeking help.  Maybe it's just me being old and using "Back in my day" gripes to emphasize that I'm behind the times, but that's just how it is for me.  In any case, I eventually remembered what I needed to do and went on to accidentally beat the game...seriously.  I just wanted to find a cacklebat, and I ended up at the final boss instead. :XD:

Star Wars: The Force Awakens
I liked it.

Chronicles of Gathion
I'm debating what kind of illustrations to do for this project...I've considered everything from pencils only to digitally inked and colored, and with Manga Studio I have even considered adapting it into a semi-comic...not sure the best way to describe it, but I've seen other artists doing it, where they post images with a segment of the story attached to each, be it in the description or as part of the image (I'd rather do the latter).  I'm not doing a full-fledged comic, mind you...that would take too long and requires skills and speed I don't have.  The thing that matters most right now is actually writing the thing, which is going well at least.  More on that later.

Other Projects
It was disheartening to cancel Please Notice Us.  As I mentioned above with Chronicles of Gathion, I simply don't have the speed and skill to do a comic series, and to be honest, the material I produced just didn't work for me.  It's partially a lack of context, partially a lack of confidence in my own work, and partially the prude in me that will produce something with adult content in it and then never post it out of embarrassment. :P Even the "poster" of Lana almost didn't make it simply because of an implied swear word. :XD: I suppose that's something I need to get's not like I'm producing something that's never been seen before, and saying a bad word or making a sex joke doesn't make me a bad person.  I guess it's just...expectations.  Or what I assume people expect.  However, that's getting into personal drama territory, so

I still don't do requests, trades or commissions?  I'd like to, and I will again soon, but give me a bit of time to get myself familiarized the tools of the trade.  I'll make a journal with details when the time's right. :)

Happy Whatever You Celebrate
May your holiday season be absolutely wonderful!  Take care, folks! :)

Hello random deviant! You are the chosen one (xD) It's a project for our group, so don't wonder! Can you draw something for me? Just a Headshot or a Sketch or something is enough. (If you want) Thank you. <3
