ITP: things I will never finish

Sooooo I was going through my art folder on my computer last night trying to decide what to put up on Fishnet last night (go check it out-- it got a total overhaul!) and realised that I had a backlog of some random crap that I've never shown anyone. Usually this is because I've sketched it on some random piece of paper somewhere and have either lost the piece of paper or can't be bothered to scan it. (Trufax: the amount of art I post online is in reality only about 10% of what I draw, since Most Days I cannot be bothered to wrestle with the scanner, or wrestle my parents for the computer that the scanner belongs to.)

But sometimes I also start scribbling something on painter and get halfway through it and realise that... I don't really like it anymore! But then I just spent a while doing it so I don't want to throw it in the trash either. So it sits there unfinished on my harddrive forever.

Forever WIPs 8D. Also not dial-up friendly, obvs.Collapse )

Anddddd that's all for now. If I get lucky this week I might try and scan in some unfinished sketchbook scribbles from the past year before I have to go back to college next weekend, but no promises.

Edit: oops I forgot one.

Nurrr I suddenly found myself with four different projects (I hesitate to call them stories because they're... not always all that) in my head and I have this horrible tendancy to NOT write things down, or if I do, only over AIM in passing and then forgetting to save the logs, SO this is just me trying to organise my head a little so I don't forget stuff! No drawings here. Just a list of stuff I'm working on/reminders to myself about where to go from here. So it's more for me than anyone else, but you can read it/use it as a rough guide to work out wtf I'm talking about and which characters belong where when I upload sketches if you want.

Honestly, I just like making lists. This is what I do in my spare time when bored. Write lists.Collapse )

Wooo that felt good :|b. Also, I had another brainwave regarding the plot in the middle of writing up the summary for the Oliver project, which PRETTY MUCH clears up the last of my plotting problems \o/. HUZZAH.

Three things today!

1. I did that Character Meme thing. Dialup users beware.Collapse )

2. I spent like half of today scanlating the SDC volume five omake 4-koma (scans and translation help thanks to tatsuta_hime) because nobody else has scanlated them, so hey! And I'm pretty sure the American company that liscenced SDC is only up to volume 4 on releases 8D;. Anyway, since I now have nobody to show them off to, I may as well put them here.

Page 1, Page 2.

3. I got a Tegaki E to fool around with. I haven't actually posted any entries yet but hey. Everyone else go get accounts so we can be dorks together and then link me to your profiles \o/. I'll probably forget about its existence in a week's time but hey. I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

Posting some old stuff I never posted on LJ before, 'cause I'm bored /o/. Mostly just retarded scribbles.

+2 Oliver-story OCs, +2 Air Gear. ... Sort of. NSFW, here be naked boobs.Collapse )

And so ends today's excercise in procrastination.

WHOOPS I forgot to update again.

More Orichalcum character sketches from over the last week \o/. Not scanning the ones I scribbled on paper 'cause I'm too lazy |D;. MAYBE ANOTHER DAY. These are just quickies anyway.

Dun dun dun.Collapse )

WOO that's all for now kids \o\.

Next on the agenda: storyboarding!

Orichalcum: beginnings

LOL LONG TIME NO SEE, COMMUNITY. Jess is going to hit me.

Anyways. Now is as good a time as any to start using this comm, right :(? It all began when tatsuta_hime uploaded her post last night about her new steampunk story for the Orichalcum anthology. I hadn't previously heard of it and thought it sounded like a cool idea! ... Except for the part where I kind of fail @ writing. Then! INSPIRATION STRUCK. In the form of an IM:

perfectdays: what do you know about the steampunk genre?
annarti: ...what's steampunk?
perfectdays: ... oh good, I'm glad I'm not the only one who had that reaction at first XD
annarti: XDD
annarti: what is it? >>
perfectdays: wiki says: "The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often set in Victorian era England—but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date."
ah k, i think i get it
perfectdays: Howl's Moving Castle is said to be part of the genre
perfectdays: FMA could also be considered part of it
annarti: yeah, they've got all the mechanics stuff worked out with automail and steamtrains
perfectdays: the reason i ask is i wondered if you wanted to collaborate on a short project XD
perfectdays: since i can't write for shit XD
perfectdays: http://bluestraggler.livejournal.com/154552.html <- this person is publishing an anthology of short story comic-works
annarti: ooh
perfectdays: but the catch is it has to be within that genre
annarti: i reckon that'd be fun =D
perfectdays: yeah \o/
perfectdays: i'll send her an email asking if collaborations are okay :3?
annarti: yeah! =D


And so our story begins.Collapse )

Bah, I figure it's easier to keep track of art posts if I post them in here, and I'm more often on LJ than I am on devART. And 'sides, the whole kerfuffle that you have to go through on dA just to upload one picture is kind of tedious, so!

SAY HELLO to Cassie's first post on Jess and Cassie's Shared Dumping Ground Comm |D! (AKA: The Ripple Studio. ... It was all her idea, I get no credit 8D!)

Three Painter scribbles; conceptual OCsCollapse )

AAAAND that's it. How spectacularly un-spectacular, for a first post!

Wheeee. Lets see how long I can keep this up |D;. PS: EVERYBODY JOIN ♥. You know you want to.
