Oh my god. Oh. My. God. Fuck some Photoshop. That took way too goddamn long and I need to remember to like, move. And take breaks. Which is never, ever going to happen, but I can dream.

I'm pretty sure my neck and shoulders have fused together, and various parts of my anatomy keep making ominous crunching sounds when I move, but HA. DONE. SHA-BAM. I want a neck massage.

Red.


Which accompanies this one. )

For the Red Riding Hood chapter of [livejournal.com profile] manipulant's Into The Woods. (An EXTREMELY LOOSE interpretation, I might add.)

There's a slightly brighter version here at my Tumblr. I like the way the brighter red makes it pop more, but in terms of this being a piece for ITW we decided on the darker version, since it fits the mood of the story better.

And holy crap, thank you SO MUCH [livejournal.com profile] dorian_mauve and [livejournal.com profile] manipulant for the handholding tonight. Handholding and opinions and suggestions and general patience. ♥ ♥ ♥ There is no way in hell I would've sat still long enough to finish this otherwise.

Art post! :DDDDDD

Big, shiny, much-easier-to-see Tumblr versions are here, but I'm a giant attention-seeker, soooo... comments?~

Whose woods these are I think I know. His house is in the village though; he will not see me stopping here to watch his woods fill up with snow. )

In case anyone's wondering, yes, I've officially stopped giving a fuck about must do schoolwork all the fucking time, oh my GOD. Obviously. I... don't think I drew this much when I was even in undergrad. Like. Where I was getting a degree in it. FINALS WEEK, SHMINALS WEEK. I'm posting this, I'mma crash for a few hours, and then [livejournal.com profile] evilhippo and I are going to the Field Museum where I am gonna ogle some fuckin' DINOS. Also whales. But mostly dinos.

Oh, AND. I've reworked a couple pieces already but I'm kind of not in the mood to have any more adventures with my scanner tonight. [livejournal.com profile] manipulant, most of them are yours and you can expect them shortly. (AKA please replace the old ones ASAFP kthx ♥)

lllookalive: ([NateR] Be calm.)
HA HA HA HA HAH.

So it's only been over a month and a half. So I only managed to quit my job, pack my shit, drive 2,227 miles, find a new place, move in, fly back to Portland for my cats, start school and not actually completely lose my mind (I said completely, I know and I'm sorry what a couple of you have been dealing with from me, I know, shut up also I love you), AND I STILL HAVE THREE PIECES TO MAKE A POST.

HA HA HAH.

I still have so much reading to do today, it's horrifying.

My BBB, Round 2 piece, one Into The Woods piece, and the first of a four-part born of a really weird conversation somewhere in the mountains of western Montana.






and you will wait at your post until you've been relieved, and warn us all if seas are dangerous. )


A couple words of disclaimer/blather-
The second two I have every intention of going back into and doing a lot more color replacement kind of stuff and some basic cell-shading. These are getting tacked onto the list begun with the last legit art post I made, on which I have made a grand total of zero headway. I'll get there.

I also might try and start posting in twos instead of threes, we'll see how OCD I get when the time comes. Yes, this does actually create legitimate concern for me and yes, I know it's ridiculous.

[livejournal.com profile] manipulant, I only have... ohgod. Do I really only have one left? I've been saving him for last and this is it, isn't it? Gah! Anyway, it looks like you're totally gonna be getting some kind of bizarre fan mix thing with the last installment, because I can't not soundtrack everything I do and some songs were just made for gay married storybook shenanigans.

Have I mentioned lately that I really like comments? Cuz I do. ♥ ♥ ♥
:D

A couple of things:
I finished my BBB second-round piece at the beginning of the week (it didn't make me crazy and miserable, I'm a little confused), and it ended up having a little/lot more Photoshop stuff going on than I usually employ. And I actually enjoyed it.

I haven't had time and won't for awhile to tinker with the first and third pieces posted here, but I have no idea how long it'll be til I do, so I'm just gonna throw up the preliminaries.

So that said, these will be a little different than usual.

Three Into The Woods pieces!



If there's a way in, then there's a way out. I'll let you think that way for now. )

Right. So. Expect to see updated versions of these at some point.

[livejournal.com profile] manipulant, I know they're sort of a change from the other ITW pieces, so if when you're posting the set you just want the un-doctored pencil drawings so that they all look like they go together, that's cool. I'll just give you both versions or whatever. Or maybe you're not as neurotic as I am. Chances are that if this current kick I'm on pans out, I might go back through and do similar things to the rest of them.

I haven't really decided what I think of the Photoshoppy thing yet.


ANYWAY. I had ten minutes before morning staff came in on Wednesday. Enjoy. )

Oh my god, this weekend has been insane, art-wise.

[livejournal.com profile] manipulant IS AMAZING. I HOPE EVERYBODY IS AWARE OF THIS. (For many, MANY reasons including the one listed here, I feel it's necessary to point out.)
She made me an ALL-CAPS promo post on her journal and I've been getting friends requests and comments and

HI, HI NEW PEOPLE! Welcome to the party! Feel free to comment, say hi, spam me anything but Justin Bieber OH MY GOD some people think they're soooooo funny, don't be shy. Thrilled to have you!~

Now for the stuff you actually might care about.



Maybe I'm aging, I like how that sounds. )

Which brings me to

HELLO. I AM NOW ON TUMBLR!~

I created it this afternoon and have spent all day bombing it. I've never actually used Tumblr EVER, okay, so bear with me a little if I'm blundering around like a moron over there. For that matter if I do something stupid or whatever, let me know over here, okay? So I can fix it? [livejournal.com profile] dorian_mauve spent most of today on Twitter with me, walking me through it and barely avoiding a couple major meltdowns when I couldn't figure out (still can't) how to reply via reblog. Fucking kill me, I swear. I'd rather you correct me than just continue looking like an idiot.

A side note to that, I've got Vices & Virtues: It Came queued up to post one-a-day for the next week or so, starting today. In case anyone's wondering why only Ready To Go is up there so far.

Finally, OH MY GOD, EVERYBODY, YOU ARE ARE SUCH MAGNIFICENT ENABLERS. YOU'RE WONDERFUL.
Never stop.
