Prisoners are baked, not fried  
Two new Lunargyros pages are up for today, read 'em here.

Saw tons of friends at the Fandom House on Sunday for a multi-party, including people I hadn't seen in awhile, and goodness it was fun! We went swimming even though it was freezing cold in the pool, had delishus food and went out to get soda and candy at the local vintage soda shop, and then an extended and insane IC drinking game. XD I am always up for such parties. Also, [livejournal.com profile] skillsontoast, IM me whenever you like!

ALSO ALSO, [livejournal.com profile] ghettopeach: I'm pretty certain I left my PSP and charger there. XD; Can you please bring them with you next time you're in my neck of the woods for operator? I'll remind you again later in the week if needed. THANK YOOOOU ;o;


I've been rather unmotivated on the job front, but I'm chugging along in other areas. At least at internship, we're finally starting to figure out what group projects we want to do, and I like the idea we decided on for our group! I need to start planning out the story and some designs for it this week, but luckily I have the time.

Since internship has been so slow otherwise, I've spent the time just hanging out with the coolest artists and practicing painting realism. I'm not very good with realism at all, so even just a bit of improvement in that direction is good, and I want to do that every day I'm there if there's nothing else to do. Here's what I've done so far: they're just copied from photos, with straight painting/no linework, and all on one layer.

Aaaand of course, more waking-up drawings. I want to color one...but which one? o_oa

A random assortment of thoughts  
Once again, thanks for all the kind wishes and thoughts on the last entry, dudes. <3 Been hanging in there, mostly by hanging out with super cool friends and watching MST3K and POTC. You guys are seriously the bestest ever.

I guess this is just going to take some time to get used to. I keep going downstairs or finishing a meal or just walking in the house and my first instinct being to go and pet Sunshine, and then I remember she's not there. :( I hate that feeling, because it keeps coming up all the time. We've been saving a bunch of pictures and videos of her, too. (At least, my little bro was smart and took video of her.)

- I kinda want to see 'Gnomeo and Juliet.' It doesn't look amazing or anything, but it looks cute enough.

- I've been debating getting a Plurk. Y/N?

- I really need to draw something for myself soon.

- I keep getting the sense that I need to watch the new My Little Pony, at least an ep or two, because people keep raving about it. But I didn't play with MLPs growing up and I didn't watch the show...

- A small part of me is curious to read Homestuck just so I know what the heck everyone keeps going on about, and then I remember just how long all that is and I get scared off. 8|

- There's a new Lunargyros page up from Friday.

Now, gonna go home and watch the Oscars. Thoughts will likely come later.

Drawing: LG and LG thumbnails...time for some serious catchup on LG this week.

Writing: RP...sob, when will I have time for reindeer story again?

Workin' for the weekend  
There was a new Lunargyros page up on Friday; read it here.

This weekend has been fun as I've got to spend it with friends! Went to Disneyland on Friday with [livejournal.com profile] betwixt_worlds, and we had fun even though it started raining pretty hard. XD That's probably the only time I've seen no line for Dole whip floats. Just did stuff with no real worries in mind and talked a lot. I actually went into the Innoventions area, which I haven't before, and ate at the Storyteller's Cafe in the hotel, which was delish. :9

And then yesterday [livejournal.com profile] corrielle joined us and we just hung out for the day, watching Disney movies and playing Final Fantasy XIII or Angry Birds. XD We wanted to try out a new restaurant around Malibu for lunch, but it was closed on Saturdays, WTF.

I've created an animatic version of the Bremen Town Musicians board (that I was actually happy with, yay), but I need to post that later. I'm really hoping for some good things to get kicking next week. *crosses fingers*

Drawing: Need to do more; mostly been doing editing stuff

Writing: Arpee...I have finally given in and joined a game with Eraqus. |D

Just a thought  
I was feeling really down/upset again (for reasons which I'll probably talk about in a later post; not work-related) when I had a classmate from Gnomon just randomly message me and say that he really liked my stuff and thought I'd totally succeed with what I wanted to do. (Especially since he's also really really good with his art!) And it was just surprising, but really appreciated at the same time.

Sometimes it really is short, little conversations that can just make things a bit better.

SHOUT OUT  
HEY HEY [livejournal.com profile] bouncy_erbear, please IM me as soon as you're online!

Otherwise...hrm, that's about it. I'm trying to edit this Okami board so that it's finally workable, although I don't know if I can pull off a proper animatic. How's everyone else doing?

Left my shadow, hope you don't mind  
Not much going on around Lynxland lately except for me hanging with people. [livejournal.com profile] ghettopeach and [livejournal.com profile] corrielle came over Friday night and we had a really great dinner and then hung out with crazy stories and FFXIII. Need to do it again soon!

[livejournal.com profile] yamikonumber7 kidnapped me today and took me down to the farmer's market, where we bought some delicious foods and I also got a sample of homemade dog treats for Sunshine. Got some apples there that were reeeeeally good.

Aside from attempting to get trophies in Re:Coded and freelance stuff, I'm also trying out some more stuff with Painter, which I need to get better with. Lil' preview of some (unfinished) stuff so far:

You won't be seeing me much tomorrow, since I am taking my grandma to Disneyland. She hasn't been in a long time and I offered to take her. So yay, funtimes!

Drawing: Still freelance stuff and practicing

Have any of you said the darndest thing lately?  
There's a new Lunargyros page up; read it here.

Ended up meeting [livejournal.com profile] wyna_hiros and [livejournal.com profile] famira for lunch today, which was awesome because I haven't seen them in a long time! We just hung out and talked geeky stuff. XD

And now, OOOOOOMG HAVE TO FLAIL ABOUT KH NEWS AND STUFF

Potentially spoilery for KH3D )

The happier post  
The Christmas party yesterday was lotsa fun, and I got to see dudes that I haven't seen in a long while! We had a delicious full Christmas dinner, did some gift exchanges (got a lot of great stuff, including How To Train Your Dragon on DVD!), watched Rankin/Bass Christmas cartoons, and played IC Apples To Apples and drinking games. It was thoroughly enjoyable all around.

Also, this evening I went out to the Christmas play that I painted the set for the other day. It was all the adorable bitties dressed up in adorable bitty angel costumes, looking increasingly uncomfortable because it's hot up there and those big tinsel-ringed collars itch. But they sang all the songs so well and it was super cute. I didn't remember the lyrics, but I recognized them all when they started singing. XD (Oh man listening to those songs over and over for WEEKS on end aaaah) I was amused since I played the part of Gabriel when I was in that play, and now Gabriel was played by the girl I gave art lessons to for awhile.

And hmmm, now have to figure out what to work on...I'm thinking reindeer story...

Start working, LJ!  
HEY DUDES, I'M BACK AROUND THE INTERNETS NOW. It's been a pretty busy week since Thanksgiving, but also lots of fun.

First off: hello to any new dudes from the KH friending meme! I don't usually do those sorts of things, but hey, It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time. Expect mostly art dumps and chatting on about nothing in particular from me.

Thanksgiving itself went better than I expected, just because it was with people I don't see hardly at all. Friday in the afternoon I went and saw Harry Potter with my parents, and it was pretty dang epic. I enjoyed the movie...I dunno if I did as much as HBP, but quite a lot. I kind of loved how they did the tale of the three brothers, with that stylistic animation. That was probably my favorite part of the whole movie. Now just need part two to get here...

Then on Friday, [livejournal.com profile] teg_plays_games came over for a week-long visit, and we did many geeky and California things! I finally saw all of the first season of Avatar...so of course sometime I have to sit down and watch the other two seasons, too. 8D I did enjoy the show a bunch; I was impressed by so much in it. We also did a bunch of gameage, mostly Okami, BBS and Dissidia. It's really nice to be able to use the multiplayer options in both of those, and mirage arena-ing and Dissidia battles were both much fun, even if I frequently lost the latter. Ah well, I got to level some villains, since I haven't picked up that game in ages. And Teg got to laugh at the fact that sometimes rumble racing with Terra is REALLY REALLY FRUSTRATING.

On Monday we headed with [livejournal.com profile] yamikonumber7 out to D-Land! It ended up being a pretty good day to go, since it was the Monday after the break and a pretty cold day. (More of that cold was felt at night, though.) So there was practically nobody there...plenty of space to run around and the lines were all very short. We got to do pretty much everything we wanted, including a bunch of the darkrides and the teacups, which I haven't done in ages. We finished it off with the Christmas fireworks show + Disneyland "snow." The park closed early (probably because of weekday and winter times), but we got dinner at House of Blues and it was quite good.

Tuesday we did a few more geeky things and then headed to Hollywood for a showing of 'Tangled' at the El Capitan! Of course there was a little walking around the walk of the stars area before hand, too. We had totally awesome seats for the movie, and they did a stage show beforehand that I actually hadn't seen before. (Best part of that was obviously the 'I'll Make A Man Out Of You' segment.) Tangled was just as good the second time; the songs actually felt a little better to me the second time around. I do love El Capitan, and I'm debating shelling out for a ticket there for the premiere of Tron: Legacy... After the movie we got delicious ice cream at the Disney Soda Fountain, and I also gave Teg a superquick tour of Gnomon.

Aaaand today was even more geekery, Malibu Seafood and showing Teg some studios in Burbank before finally having to take her back to the train station. But it was indeed a fun week!

Oof...except now I should really get back to work, and I've been hit with the tired stick, too. @_@ I'm going to try and be as productive as I can in the next two weeks on the stuff I have to get done, partially to match what friends (and particularly my mom) are having to do right now, and partially because I want to get some of the freelance stuff out of the way so that I can focus on stuff like that Okami board or getting down more of that reindeer story...kinda fell behind on that. >>

Finally, there's a new Lunargyros page from yesterday.

IT IS NOW MY INTENTION TO DO...SOMETHING. *just sort of falls over*

Drawing: Need to catch up on 10HAD, LG, and a thousand other things

Writing: Want to work on that fic and reindeer stuff...

*stares intently at the clock*  
Yesterday I went and got my hairs cut, and it is nice to have them short again! Also went to visit all the cool dudes at Fandom House, and we got delicious frozen yogurt and watched fun movies. Also, I got to play with their doggie, who is soooo cute! And teeny! I'm not used to playing with such a small dog. XD But she was still a total sweetie.

Tomorrow is Disneyland with more awesome dudes, which will probably be crowded on Labor Daybor, but oh well it's still good.

Otherwise my brain has just kind of turned to mush just waiting for it to be Tuesday, because it seriously needs to be Tuesday yesterday. Holy crap, BBS is so close and yet still feels AGES AWAY WHAT IS THIS.

Drawing: Slowly making more headway on the covers; have the feeling much more is coming up...

Writing: Should work on the fic...

Days until BBS release: 2! LESS THAN THAT EVEN, AAAAH

Pimpage!  
I promised I would pimp, so that's what I'm doin'!

My awesome friends are awesome, and did a full Torchwood cosplay group this year at Comic Con (yeah, the one I missed.) And the cosplay was so kickass that the show's crew snagged pictures of them, and now they're on the front page of the BBC America website! :D Go seeeee!

[livejournal.com profile] corrielle, [livejournal.com profile] estelofimladris, [livejournal.com profile] hystericblue42, [livejournal.com profile] scifichicx, [livejournal.com profile] xanmuse, [livejournal.com profile] lady_entropy17, [livejournal.com profile] turlough: you guys and your cosplays raaaawk! :D
