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...

OKAY SO

Birth By Sleep is out in Japan now. While I've been spazzing out on what they've released up to now, I am going to try REALLY VERY HARD to NOT spoil myself for things like the ending, major plot points, and big surprises. So, for now, I would ask that my journal stay a SPOILER FREE ZONE until I can manage to get my hands on the North America release.

I HONESTLY DON'T KNOW HOW I'M GOING TO SURVIVE THIS LONG. I AM BARELY SURVIVING EVEN A DAY. 8( But I really do want to try and stay spoiler-free...not that I wouldn't enjoy the game if I WAS spoiled, because I most definitely would, but I've been waiting for this one so long I'd like to have that little extra punch of OMFG I WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT.

SO PLEASE DO NOT SPOIL ME UNLESS I SPECIFICALLY ASK YOU TO. AND EVEN THEN, CHECK WITH ME LIKE TEN TIMES BEFORE LETTING ME GIVE IN TO MY WEAKNESS. 8(

OH BUT ONE THING YOU CAN SPOIL ME ON IS THE ENGLISH RELEASE DATE
I don't care if it's like 3 in the morning, you can wake me up to tell me that.

IN THE MEANWHILE...all that anatomy-copying, and then today I was on a BBS high so I went and decided to draw some of the characters. Have some BBS sketches:

Includes Terra, Aqua, Ven, Vanitas, Kairi and an Unversed )

I'M JUST GOING TO GO

FLAIL IN A CORNER UNTIL I EXPLODE THE END

Oh SNAAAAP  
Class got canceled again today! Which in some ways sucks, 'cause it's one of the classes I actually need help on (WTF is your problem, Pose Deformer tools arrgh!...) and because the teacher is swamped with actual work. I have no clue how we're gonna make up all of these classes, considering we've already gone into makeup week and I want at least one full week off before next term, thanks. Compared to last term, this one just sucks for canceled classes. February really is the cruelest of months. D:

But hey, at least now I've got the whole day to play around in [livejournal.com profile] daisychainrpg BE VERY PRODUCTIVE AND GET WORK DONE, YES. Actually, I really do have to finish that animation homework and attempt to do more portfolio work... And I have to, err, empty out a box of my crap or something. D:

Also, drove [livejournal.com profile] yamikonumber7 to LAX yesterday. Since we didn't want to deal with 405 afternoon traffic, we left earlier and just hung out at the Howard Hughes Center and talked RPs and gaming and geekery the whole time. XD It was fun times! We also got Ben & Jerry's (Phish Food = yummmm) and invaded Borders, where I gave into the urge and splurged on some stuff: Peach Fuzz #3 (finally have it all, yay!) and MST3K boxset #2, which has "Pod People" and "Cave Dwellers", two of the best episodes EVAR. ♥

And finally, here's the latest Lunargyros page. Sadly, this now means the end of double updates, as I've caught up and need to get cracking on new pages. D: Maybe if I get a page surplus in the future I can do another double update month.

Drawing: Buncha stuff I should be working on... XO

I bombard you first with a new Lunargyros page! (Slightly late, because I apparently can't date things properly. D:)

OOOOOOOOOOMG. So it looks like the platforms for the new KH games have been announced (from [livejournal.com profile] 0kingdom_hearts):

- Kingdom Hearts III [temporary title] (PlayStation 3)
- Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories 2 (Nintendo DS)
- Kingdom Hearts 0 (PSP)

My (incoherent) thoughts:
- Why is nothing on the Wii? *cryyyyyy* I wanted to go swinging the Keyblade around with the Wiimote! ;_;
- Whelp, looks like I'll be getting a PS3 after all. But at least by the time the game is released, the price of it should be down A whole ten dollars, OMG!. And hey, I can get FFXIII and some new DDR games for it, too.
- ADJkasdjalksdjls! One on the DS AND one on the PSP?! EEEEEEEEK! I want to play both, if I can! But I have neither PSP nor DS, what do I do?! I didn't really want to buy a PSP...maybe I can borrow that, or the DS? But who owns those?! *chews on nails* I MUST NEEDS FIND A WAY TO HAVE THESE HANDHELDS, IF NOT TEMPORARILY.
- I was hoping this was not the case, but if one of the games (CoM 2?) is a Roxas-focused or Org-focused game, I'm going to die. But I'd probably play the game/watch the cutscenes anyway...I'd just have to shut myself off of fandom or something, because I don't know if I can handle the AkuRoku crazies shrieking over a new game. MRRRRGH. I WANT GAME. I JUST DON'T WANT FANDOM. XO
- NEEDS MOAR MICKEY. I want to play as Mickey, dammit!
- Where the hey do Ven, Aqua and Terra come into these? Are they in KH0?

GAAAAAAH *FLAIL*

This post has been rated GUS for Generally Un-Safe  
Only one week left of my job, weee! Then I am so totally out of this receptionist crap. Instead, I'll be killing myself with texture mapping crap! Oh yeah!

Okay, finally scanned the bad Lunargyros sketches:

WARNING! There are sorta-kinda spoilers for Lunargyros in here! )

Today I suddenly started thinking about a bunch of the old Disney cartoons I used to watch when I was little: I distinctly remember 'Lambert the Sheepish Lion,' 'Johnny Fedora and Betty Blue Bonnet,' 'Little Toot,' 'Susie the Little Blue Coupe' and 'Trick or Treat.' I want to watch these old cartoons so bad now. Does anyone know where I can find them? I would totally buy a DVD of some of them. I have so many fond memories of 'Lambert the Sheepish Lion' and 'Little Toot' especially; they were some of the first cartoons from my childhood. ♥

Also: OOOOOMG FINAL MIX MUST COME NOW YAY BECAUSE *FLAILEXPLODES*

THIS is about the cutest and most adorable thing I have ever seen, and it is now going to be my background. I seriously spent about an hour just squeeing over this picture because it is that awesome. And the best part: it's an official picture for Final Mix! THANK YOU FOR BEING AWESOME, CANON ♥

I need to go attempt gummi missions again since Reb gave me some blueprints that she said got her S + 9 and S + 10 on some missions! Maybe then I can find that Golden Phoenix that I've STILL been missing.

But now, I am going to go run to the store and then play FFXII until my brain rots. XD

Drawing: Plowing ahead! Gonna spend a lot of time tomorrow drawing, methinks. (Aside from taxes, eww.)

Writing: On chapter 13 of the fic!
