I'M BAAAAACCCKKKK

Did it even look like I left?

I moved to a new house and just now got internet! :D It was a difficult move (so much stuff and we moved into a smaller house) so I still need to figure out how to adjust back into my usual routine...or perhaps a more productive routine...

Welp, I honestly forgot what I wanted to say here...but I am back! :D After about a week without internet...;m;

I made an animation!

External Image

I want to say that this is the first of some kind...I mean, I feel like I've never done this sort of thing before, but I know that I have....

A scene from my web comic. I was thinking about maybe some panels should be animated and stuffs...coloured and animated occasionally, but done like a traditional manga style. So I did this!

I think I should learn more about animation so I can do more! XD I prefer action-y scenes because I can draw a completely different pic each frame rather than the more still scenes which are really difficult to pull off because you have to make certain frames similar in only a few parts....;3;

Where is everyone???

I mean, where am I?

I looked at the fancomics section, and there are very very few comics there. I looked at the fanart section, and there is plenty of fanart, an amount I am satisfied with. However, I checked the most popular fanarts of today and the highest one only has about 16 votes.

Then I checked for the week, then for the month...the most amount of votes for the most popular one I saw was only about 32 votes. Just double what there is for a daily 'most popular' pic.

I find that extremely strange. Where did everyone go?

I remember a few years ago the most popular fanart for the DAY was usually 40+ votes. I could never make it there, so if my art was on the front page it was a huge deal to me. But nobody seems to be voting anymore. What happened to the 40+ votes really really really good artists would get? WHAT HAPPENED TO EVERYONE

Now...I think for me I just stopped getting on here as much because of school. I mean, I wouldn't expect EVERYONE to have the same problem because people have had school for numerous years, why all of a sudden there are so few people on here anymore...;m;

Makes me so sad....I want to do something for theO, but I'm not sure how to help bring more people back...or at least have more people vote.

Any ideas?

KYARA POWAH

Listening to Morning Musume's Man Power...I blame that.....

I wanted to do a sketch dump...but then I realized that it was night time and I didn't take any new pictures of my sketchbook...;orz

So I will show you what I've been working on in the mean time!

MANGA/WEBCOMIC CHARACTER TAIM!!

I just did four new drawings. I redid two characters....well, actually, all of these are old characters.

Redesign of: External Image

I never really liked Yukiko's design that much. I liked the idea of Yukiko (and her hair colour...a lot of thought was put into her hair colour), but that design was SUPAH plain. It was supposed to be like a magical girl, but I can't come up with magical girl clothing designs or else they'll end up looking like Sailor Moon outfits. I looked at several magical girl outfits...they all were the same essentially, but they had unique differences that made the outfits catchy. In other words, if I can't go big with anything, I was just stumped for designs.

But I had an epiphany! Morning Musume has neato outfits that are pretty much magical girl style. ALL ALONG...IN FRONT OF MY EYES....;m; So, inspired by Morning Musume's latest style of half skirts that might ruffle on one side but be straight on the other, or be pants on one side and be skirt on the other....I did this!

I might fix her skirt a bit to make it more obvious that the fabric and sewing has changed to a different style of skirt.

I redid Reese's design. My friend helped me a tad...just by saying his last design looked funky! XD I feel he looks rich and eccentric...a bit too cowboy for me...but then not so cowboy at the same time? I also darkened his skin. I darkened all my character's skin because I came to the realization that most people in this world are not as pale as me...I kept making them in the spectrum of my own skin colour...O.o;

External Image

I just redid Tadao's jacket. It looks more like a jacket now. HUZZAH!! I think that was what I was going for all this time...I dunno why I kept drawing funky looking jackets. I thought I could design a cool jacket for some reason...>3>

Who is that new female OC? She's actually not new! :D She's a redesign of this really really old character of mine:

External Image

'Rin Hatoshi' I dunno if Hatoshi is a real name...for some reason Rin Hatoshi seemed like a good name at the time, as if it already existed...But I will call her Rin Hirabayashi for now.

She's the Seiichi's therapist who may be more than just a therapist. As in story-wise, not jobwise....Not like at night she's actually Batman or something. Nah bro, she's really just a therapist, but because of that she's quite an important character. Pretteh much like a law enforcer in this webcomic 'o mine.

I really like how her head came out. I dunno how I did that, but I like it! ;D

I want to design more characters...but I don't think I should until I get to new characters in the plot....XD These are all the main characters in the plot so far (besides Seiichi). Oh no wait, I'm forgetting somebody majorly important...but this is because I dunno how to draw him at all...I dunno how I want him to look....>3> He is secretly also an old character, but from a different perspective entirely so he's pretty much new.

I might design a few more characters and post them here while I work out fleshing out the story, setting, and characters and re-writing the chapters enough to where they sound good enough and then start drawing out the pages! ;D

Sketch Dump THIRD RUMBLE

I dunno...that title...O.o;

I decided to not use my scanner and just take pictures and the pictures came out much better than the scanned pics so I will be posting some one I posted before just 'cause the quality is so much better and you can actually see what it was a picture of! :D

External Image

The one with the head that I was telling you gaiz about~! :D

External Image

That one pic that looks much better now~! :D Now you can tell what everything is that I drew~!

External Image

Some of the ones on this page you've already seen, some you haven't. I dunno why my scanner cut out of 'o these...>3>

External Image

Ohoho...this page...XD My friend and I were going to draw eachother's characters before we went to class, but then we ran out of time. And I felt that everyone always draws my OC Suzume (mainly 'cause she's the first to come off the top of my head next to Klan) so I drew most of my OCs that I would like for my friend to draw....but I accidentally filled up all the space so she couldn't finish the drawing of Suzume (hers is in the top left corner)...;orz

External Image

Trying to figure out how to draw Seiichi. I think I got it~! ;D Also some doodles in the bottom left of me trying to draw Reese (and Klan)...I still don't know what kind of clothes he should wear...>3>

And then in the bottom right we have drawings of moonlitdream's characters again~! :D After reading pretty much all the posts on zarla's live journal about bad yaoi anime I was inspired to draw in a more manly yaoi style. I like how Stefan came out...and I don't know if I drew Gabe right. I keep giving him a box shaped face...>3> Underneath them is Tomato and to the left is Noland.

I wrote next to Gabe 'Did I get it this taim??' and then underneath Noland it says 'It seemed like a good idea at the time'....'cause he looks creepyyyy....;3;

External Image

Now you can see those pics I was talking about in color~! :D

External Image

I drew this last night...:D I drew a lot of things last night...O.o; I tried drawing Gabe again...I just can't do it.

I also drew Flapjack 'cause I was watching episodes of Flapjack last night...I LOVE THAT SHOW SOOOO MUCH! I miss it...I might just rewatch ALL of the episode! ;3;

External Image

Charactah designin'~! :D Trying to figure out how to draw that girl....that I drew a picture of...(this sentence makes no sense).

I tried designing a boy who is scary skillful in battle and is very tough, but awkward socially. Not exactly tsundere, though. Who would protect the little girl, but also be like her lapdog.

That person at the bottom...I think that is either Jaime Lannister or Jon Snow....>3> I dunno....I was doodling while I was watching Game of Thronessss....

Welp....that's about it~! :D
