Your random homicides are beginning to get me slightly peeved  
At some point, I suppose I should stop holding it in and make a big ol' post on my thoughts about current things, especially stuff like government. Buuuut I'm having trouble getting around to it, considering it would mostly consist of rage and despair, and I don't much like talking about that in spaces like this. I seem to be of the (perhaps rather unhelpful) mind that if I stick my fingers in my ears and go LA LA LA it'll go away. 8| But yeah. Maybe I will rant on that later.

I'm also rather ehhh at the moment because the job that I had been interviewing for and thought I had a good chance at suddenly went poof. This always seems to happen to me...and I'd be lying if I said that this time I wasn't really disappointed. There's opportunities in the future, but y'know, it'd be really nice if that opportunity came through now for once. -_-

But I still have my friends, and family, and my health, and for all those things I'm grateful.

So, I've got a whole buncha new things both with LP, All Hearts and waking-up drawings to share...







Finished off the rest of the Wonderland characters for All Hearts:

All Hearts - Queen of Hearts, White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat and Doorknob )

A bunch more waking-up drawings!

Under-covers drawings 253-261 )

Drawing: All Hearts, Secret Santa gift, and now reindeer story expression sheets

Writing: Tags and plottings, and reindeer story script...so yes, I've started in on that more.

Moving things  
I've made an animatic version of the Bremen Town storyboard! No sound or music, just trying to fit things together better. Dialogue is included, though.



Since mom had the day off for the holiday, we went and saw 'The King's Speech.' It was definitely an Oscar bait movie, but was still good! Colin Firth was totally convincing. Really drew you in and made you feel the pain he felt about his speaking. I've gotten into the habit of analyzing any new movie I see with a boarder's eye, but at least I learn something new every time. Also talked a bunch with my mom about it once we were done, since she's had a lot of study (and personal experience) with stuttering/stammering problems.

I tend to skip out on the 'Oscar bait' movies when they come around because lol, animation/geeky movie nerd, but I should probably watch them more often, just to see what's going on with them.

I'm starting to think maybe I should stop reading the news or looking at the political blogs that I do, or at least as often. Just seeing how much is continuously wrong in the world and with lots of people is, I think, starting to drain on me. It all feels so immensely large and overwhelming that it in turn makes me feel utterly helpless and fearful. And that in turn makes me cynical. I think maybe I'd be happier if I reduced my intake on that stuff (and I'm almost certain I was happier before I started absorbing more politics.) They say happiness spreads, so if my happiness can make others happier too, then it'd certainly be more worthwhile than cynicism.

Anyway, I got a board test to go to tomorrow. Please wish me luck! I'm really crossing my fingers on this one.

Warm and Sleepy-Feeling  
I try to avoid getting political around here because I know that can be polarizing and unhappy, and I don't want to piss people off for things that can't be changed anyway. But I just feel like ranting now, so feel free to skip all this and save yourself potential headaches.

Very short and very general political whining )

Okay, I'm done ranting now. Have yourself a happy KH fanart instead:

Blue Night )

I guess I should put up a wish list soon...

California sucks less!  
I'm sure most people have heard the news by now, but still: YAAAAY! At last, I can be proud of my state again! I know there's still a lot left to go and marriages aren't technically legal again yet, but a step in the right direction is still a step!

Just had to glee about that! And for today's movie...

Day 4 - King Kong (1933) )

Because I can only think coherently in bullet points  
This pretty much illustrates my current state of being:

Photobucket

THANK GOODNESS, IT IS OVER!

- I'm so glad I voted!
- I'm so glad that the person I voted for won!
- I don't know how these next four years are going to go. I don't know if things are going to get better or worse. But I do know that people are happy, that people are optimistic, that people are willing to think and try and work hard for something they believe in, on ALL sides. And that, I believe, it's what most important of all.
- Out of everyone involved in this nerve-wracking campaign, and everyone who voted, I think (ironically) that Obama and McCain were the most gracious and civil of anyone. I hope that everyone learns to drop their prejudices and their misconceptions and follows their example.
- Ohio, Florida, and all the rest...I'm real proud of ya.
- I couldn't sleep last night, and when I did, I had a dream that Prop 8 didn't pass and I was excited and talking to my parents about it. Then I woke up, got a bowl of Trix for breakfast and looked at the paper.
- Thumbs down, California. Thumbs doooooown for you. I really don't want to be ashamed of my state. I hope that, as young generations grow up both with strong moral backgrounds and without prejudice, that they'll demand this will be overturned and I can be proud again. I hope the next generation of young Christians will treat all their fellow humans the same way God treats them: equally.
- All across California, chickens, pigs and calves rejoice! I'm happy for them, and I'm selfishly happy for getting better meat and eggs out of the deal.
- It was my dad's birthday on Monday, and since I had class these past two nights and missed it, I'll probably go out to eat with him tonight. I'm so thankful that I can have discussions with him and we can still laugh and joke no matter what our opinions on things are. I feel eternally blessed. I bought him The Muppet Christmas Carol on DVD.
- Last night I couldn't watch the election because recruiters from Disney and Nickelodeon, the two places I want to go most, were critiquing our reels. They were 100% honest and it was just as nerve-wracking as the politics. Turns out, I've got a lot of work to do on mine to bring it up to par. I'll need to re-render most of my scenes in grayscale and wireframe, and change all my packaging. Luckily rendering shouldn't take as long.
- Most everyone I show my art portfolio to says they really like it and that I have great art, and yet sometimes I feel like I'm never going to get a job.
- I'm cheering on all of my buds doing NaNoWriMo. Go go go!
- It's finally cold enough to wear socks indoors and make me shiver when I go outside. I need to get to work on those Christmas cards.
- I finally got an idea for a KH drabble to write. I'm so excited for an upcoming plot in Daisychain.
- I wish you all the very, very best. ♥

Perhaps I'm mistaken. The horror must be in a later scene.  
8| Ohgeez, I caved:

i ship it.


There's a new Lunargyros page today, you can read it here!

I HAVE VOTEEEEED. It was actually...really...uneventful. There was no line and I got everything done in five minutes. Come on, polling place! I was expecting a long line! That better be because everyone voted early.

This'll probably be hella boring to anyone not living in California, but I'm writin' it anyways! What I voted for and why: )

SO YEAH. I got class tonight, so I guess I won't be able to see results until tomorrow. D'oh! We'll see how this eventually ends up!

*Runs off to draw something or...other*

For tomorrow...  
A very important message from Clover )

Will post some arts tomorrow or later...tomorrow is also presenting reels and portfolios for class. >< I think I've got all my stuff ready; at least I hope so.

...I'm suddenly tempted to do that I Ship It Meme. >>

Drawing: Life drawing life drawing life drawiiiing...and some LG pages, too.

Writing: Little. Intrepid thread's almost done, tho. /o/

In which Lynx gets unusually political  
Yeeeah, I usually don't wanna get all political here, but today's an exception. I'm in a ranting mood right now, watch out.

The election's coming up, and you guys all better vote! And if you're a resident in California, be sure and vote NO on Prop 8.

What's this? I'm telling my fellow Californians how they should vote on a very sensitive issue? Darn straight I am. Here are all the reasons why you need to vote NO on prop 8. )

So yes. VOTE NO ON PROP 8. I will go out on a limb and actually say this to my flist because I think it's that important. There's absolutely no good reason to vote yes on it.

If this passes, I will be sorely disappointed in California. If Massachusetts can figure it out, then so can Cali!

Can't debate that.  
Oof, this is a bit late, but there's a new Lunargyros page that went up on Tuesday. Gotta thumbnail some more. :P


Bunch of different memes going around, but I got tagged by [livejournal.com profile] wyna_hiros, so heeeere goes...

A) People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs & replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

B) Tag 8 people to do this quiz & those who are tagged cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by & cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by. Continue this game by sending it to other people.

Answers here )

Uhh...I'm supposed to tag people, but I'm too lazy to go culling for names. ><; If you wanna do the meme, have at it.

Ohhh man, I so wanted to just riff on the VP debates last night, but my parents were actually trying to listen. It's times like these that I'm so thankful for the internet...it makes all things political so funny and therefore all the more bearable.


Drawing: Finished an LG page, worked a little more on that painting. Almost done!

Beware of politics...  
Okay, whoever ate in the school lounge last is going to get a punch in the face courtesy of my fist. There were food bits and napkins and trash left all over the tables, and something like a mountain of crumbs left ON THE COUCH. Meanwhile, the ants have a party! Seriously people, I know we're all fish-skin-pale computer geeks with a fraction of social skills, but how hard is it to clean up after yourselves?! You know, get the trash, PUT IT IN THE TRASH CAN, and then maybe wipe up any crumbs or food you might've accidentally dropped? It's NOT. HARD. And it makes the place where people go to watch TV or play video games not look and smell like A TRASH DUMP. No matter what kind of person you are, there's really no excuse to not have minimum hygiene skills and, I dunno, common sense.

The more I hear about Palin, the more I have to wonder what in the hell McCain was thinking. And the more I think about it, the more I suspect he chose her for a running mate for really shallow reasons. Screw that. I was already planning on voting for Obama for reasons related to the war, but now I'm even more convinced to vote for him just because I don't want to take the chance that Palin might be running the country. Sorry, McCain, but your health is not the best. :/

And no, it's not because of anything involving her daughter. The woman's personal life is none of my business, frankly.

...Ugh, there's probably a good reason I never post about politics. Sorry about that. -_- Here, have yourselves a new Lunargyros page, and hopefully there'll be art-related thingies tomorrow. Gonna go ZBrush now...

Drawing: Tried to draw yesterday but didn't get so much. Just a bit, though.

'Nother long day ahead...  
Just wanted to ask: are my Tennessee flist-ers okay? DDD: Those tornadoes sound absolutely horrible...I hope everyone was not hurt or hindered by them too badly. ;_;

Also, I wanted to vote yesterday, but I didn't get away from school soon enough to get to my polling place...I spent about five and a half hours working on my sculpture. (There's a chance I couldn't have voted anyway; I can't remember if I'm registered Democratic or Independent...) @_@ Sculpture is frickin' hardcore. Does anyone know who won the primaries, if we even do know yet? I'm hoping for Obama...

And in less world-news...

There's a new Lunargyros page up from yesterday! Also, an announcement: in honor of the fact that this February is part of a leap year (and the fact that I happen to have a backlog of pages) there will be two updates every week for the month of February! So be sure and check back for new Lunargyros pages on both Tuesday and Friday! :D (I'll probably announce so, too.) Woot, more pages than usual!

If any dudes out there are going to AnimeBoston in a few weeks (I am not, sadly...) be sure to stop by Artist's Alley, as Svet, Dee, Dan and a few other guys from Wirepop will have a booth there promoting Wirepop comics and other coolness! There should be some Lunargyros pages in the Wirepop sampler they have, along with the other awesome comics that you should read because they are made by people Cooler Than Me. (It's the same pages as are on the site, but I believe they're "paid pages.") So if you happen to be there, check it out!

Okay, time to stop wasting my lab time...

Drawing: The usual, plus...ah heck, I need to figure out what I'm working on this weekend. XP

Writing: At a good part in the script...
