First of all, if you've joined my squad of watchers since I posted here last, I would like to say thank you and welcome! I know I'm not very active right now, so if you've watched me knowing that, you rock! I really appreciate the views and support.
Secondly, there are a few things on my artwork-to-do list that I am bound and contracted to, and for the two of you that I promised art to SO LONG AGO, I apologize that I haven't delivered it to you. I hate to say it, but I have to return both of your selections because they're both TF-related. It's nothing wrong on your part, I promise, it's just that since I'm keeping my Almanac and whatnot at home, I haven't been very motivated to do much TF art lately. You've probably noticed from the lack of said material in my submissions as of late. I'm really sorry about flaking on those requests, but since I'm returning them to you, you have their full value for the future. So for example, if you put in a request for a kiriban of a digital piece of Optimus and Megatron skipping in a field happily, you'd get the idea returned to you, and you can ask me for something else of equal value in the future. I'm not sure if I'll be returning to TF art anytime in the near future, so if there's another fandom you want done, I am at your service for those. Again, I feel awful about flaking on those, but at least one of them is something I know I won't be able to do anytime soon and be satisfied with it, and the last thing I want to do is submit something that I'm not satisfied with after keeping you waiting all this time.
Pokemon requests are coming! I've worked out a system that's easier for both me and the environment. Any Pokemon requests, be they human or not, will be capture cards. They're half of a 5x8'' index card (translates roughly to 1/4 of a regular sheet of computer paper), and before you go off on me being "oh that's way too small!", I can assure you I can fit a ton of detail into that little space than a bigger one. The ironic thing is that since I first started submitting art here, my average canvas size has gotten way smaller. My first pieces were full 8.5x11'' sheets, then I scaled down to half of that. Currently, I'm using either my 9x6'' sketchbook for art or the index cards, and it works better for me. Less waste if I don't like it, and less white space generally as a whole. So yeah! If you requested a Pokemon (and even if you didn't...), that's how the format will be. If you want a sample, I have several smaller scenes that are already done and I can put on here. And if you still want a humanized Pokemon character, you can put your request on this journal or send me a note with what you want. If you're unsure, you can check my last journal for more information.
Finally, I'm doing pretty well here. I'm taking a full summer semester of classes here, and one of them is on campus for the first half of the summer, so we're here in the dorms still. But we have AC, thank the dorm gods, so don't worry too much about us. Oh, and if you're wondering, Terrakion is still here with me. Cobalion is also joining us for the first few weeks of the semester, so I have both my Swords here to cuddle with! Since I last posted, I finished sophomore year and I also got a promotion at work, so I get a little pay raise and I get to wear a chef coat!!
On that note, if you'd like to connect with me more to chat, game, post random stuff, etc, I am willing to add to my Facebook friends. Just send me a note with your link and I'll add you there! I also still have my 3DS, so if you want to play Sm4sh or Pokemon, you can note me with your friend code and I can add you there, too!
I think that's about it. Whew, long update, I know. Again, drop me a line here if you wanna chat about something on this update, or if it's a personal thing you'd rather not share with the public, my Notes box is still up and running. Hope to hear from a few of you!
