The icon is for LJ's current shenanigans  
Takin' a break from artworks just to update here, since once again it's been awhile. I'm slowly getting back onto a regular sleep schedule. I guess in the end, that sort of thing is a lot like jetlag. Since then, been working on long commission work, getting my printer fixed, and purchasing a new DDR pad and game in my attempts to get back into shape. Or, that failing, to be halfway decent at moving again. I am thankful for a little extra time now...I think at least one of these commission projects is going to end up being a lot more work than I anticipated. x_x

A big reminder: PREORDERS FOR LUNARGYROS ARE STILL OPEN! If you want to buy, please order soon! And thank you to everyone who's ordered so far!

Also, [ profile] itsjustagamerp has been going well so far! :D We're in the middle of Halloween events right now, which has been crazy-fun. Everyone's just been awesome. <3

So now, here's another LP ep and then waking-up drawings:

Some bad, mostly sharing things  
Well, there's one bad thing, but then a whole buncha stuff to share!

The job I was at apparently is ending early for me...well, later than they initially estimated, but still earlier than I was thinking with all the work there is still left to do on the show. But the executive producers are changing things up and going down from four loggers to two, so...this week is my last. :( I am going to miss the steady paycheck...

The silver lining on this is that at least I now have the time to get all that commission work done, since there's a lot of that and I don't know if I could have finished it all otherwise.

And now, lotsa stuff to share!

The commercial intern project that I worked on while at Zoic is now up, and you can see it right here! I did the storyboards/animatics for the project, and the rest of the team did all that awesome modeling, texturing, animation, lighting, etc. YAAY it's nice to see it done!

Also, today I got a proof copy of Lunargyros! YAAAAAY! Just some quickie webcam pics of it:


Here's another episode of Kia and I's Let's Play Kingdom Hearts 2...

One (or many) steps at a time  
Eesh, another late update...I've been really busy working on a new storyboard, but it's done now! I may post it later...

Also went and saw 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' this last Friday! No spoilers on it, but I greatly enjoyed it and would recommend it! The science behind everything probably isn't that sound, but oh well, it was still a fun story. You really ended up sympathizing with Ceaser and the other apes. Plus, I do like the original 'Planet of the Apes,' and they have a lot of callbacks to that movie. (It was better than the Tim Burton remake, anyway.)

Got a whole buncha new episodes of the Kingdom Hearts 2 LP up now!

And a whole buncha new waking-up drawings...

Under-covers drawings 134-137 ) yeah, this is it. This is the final Lunargyros update. Like, the last pages ever. I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT IT IS ACTUALLY DONE NOW, AND IS ALL UP. How did this ending come up so soon?!

I'm also going to post a thank-you message for tomorrow, plus info on getting a print version will be up when I finally have it worked out! SO KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED, THERE WILL BE MORE INFO ON THAT IN THE FUTURE!

Ooof, in case you can't tell, I've been really busy lately and have not bothered to update here because of it. T_T I'm trying to get more storyboards done (hopefully) by the end of the week, so that's eating up much of my time, plus working and other things.

So while I don't have as much stuff of current goings-on to share, here's your basic updates:

Buncha new episodes for [ profile] yamikonumber7 and I's Kingdom Hearts 2 LP!

First year of marriage is always the most psychotic  
It's mah birthday today, woot! ...And sadly, I am spending it alone, at work, trying desperately to fight off a cold. |D I REALLY cannot afford to get sick right now, because I've got awesome dudes coming over and Comic Con and Disneyland all coming up this week! So hopefully gallons of water and orange juice will be my savior...

Got to have a nice dinner with family on Friday, in which I got some awesome cupcakes and cool presents! :D In this case, Tarzan on DVD, Beauty and the Beast on Blu Ray, some monies and Twizzlers! And will hang out with friends on Tuesday for more birthdayness! Just really, really, REALLY want to be better by then, so...*urges white blood cells to fight harder* T_T

OH also, I think on Tuesday we're seeing the 8:10 showing of Harry Potter at the Agoura Hills Regency theater, FYI to friends!

Two new Lunargyros pages are up from Friday!

Also did our intern group project presentation today...nerve-wracking as all pitches + roasts are, but I think we came out of it with some good feedback. At least dudes liked the boards I did!

And reeeeeeally not looking to battling Carmageddon on Saturday morning. |D But it must be done, and at least my parents promised me a coffee for my troubles.

Now per the usual, just a bunch of stuff to share:

There's two new Lunargyros pages up for your readability!

Birthday plans and wish list  
SO FOR BIRTHDAY THINGIES. Decided I want to do stuff on Tuesday the 19th! We will go out to see the final Harry Potter movie later in the evening and it shall be fun! The rest of the time we shall spend just hanging out about the house and being awesome, possibly with ordering pizza (or making it if I'm feeling ambitious enough, but probably ordering out for it.) Also, anyone who is driving down to Comic Con with me can stay the night at my place, since Comic Con is immediately the day after and it'll be easier to all leave from one location rather than having to meet up on Wednesday. We'll also figure out car stuff then. So YES! If you know me and have that Tuesday free and would like to come, then please come!

Also, since some dudes asked for it, here is my birthday wish list:
- Monies for Comic Con
- "Ghost Trick" for the DS
- Pokemon Black OR White for the DS
- New sketchbooks
- Any new drawing pens (especially brush pens)
- Any Disney movies or collections I don't own (Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Tarzan, Atlantis, etc.)
- Any MST3K boxsets I don't own (MST3K: The Movie, Gamera boxset, XVIII, etc.)
- Candies I like (Twizzlers, Swedish Fish, etc.)

This is also the same list I gave my parents, so, yeah. |D Rather short.

And for all others, here's episode eight of Kia and I's Let's Play KH2:

OH and before I forget: also two new pages of Lunargyros are up today!

So little time  
Nnnnnngh I'm in a totally distracted mood ATM since I'm trying to figure out how to do our group project for our internship. This is proving more difficult than originally thought (in part because of a somewhat unnecessary time limit, and lack of communication...)

Also in the process of trying to plan out everything that I need to do before/during Comic Con (WHICH IS SUPER FRIGGIN' SOON AAAAAAH) I am trying to decide what I want to do for my birthday! Unfortunately, the only days I can pretty much, uh, do anything at all are Monday night the 18th, or Tuesday night the 19th after [ profile] bouncy_erbear arrives. SO, ANYONE WHO LIVES CLOSE TO ME AND WANTS TO COME, I HAS QUESTIONS:

- What day is best for you, the 18th or the 19th?
- I am considering either just a party at my house hanging out with good food and watching movies/ponies/whatever, or going out to go see Harry Potter since that will be coming out the previous Friday and I really wanna see it! Would you rather just come hang for something relaxing, or go out to the movies?

SPEAKING OF, EM AND RAE: We need to plan our Comic Con driving/packing/parking situations! Call or text me?

Okay, as per usual, I have Lunargyros and LP and art things for all...

First, two new pages in Lunargyros are up today!

Second, we've actually gotten up two new episodes of the KH2 LP! Since they're in smaller chunks, they're easier to watch, anyway:

And finally, some new waking-up drawings, plus a color version of an older one...

Oh me of little brain  
Once again, two new Lunargyros pages are up and readable here.

I've actually finished drawing all of Lunargyros, but my brain's a little too fried to reflect on that right now. I may write about finishing LG later, if my brain ever does get that in order.

Aaah my life is an up-and-down of possible-maybe-we'll see projects and job and man IDEK. Once again, really hoping that some things will work out; it'd be so nice to have some solid work.

OKAY I dunno what else to do that's serious, so it's time for FUN THINGS. First off, the next episode of Kia and I's Let's Play Kingdom Hearts 2 is now up!

And of course, some more waking-up drawings are up...I've now officially passed the 100 mark. @_@ I feel like I should put these in a book or something. But is that something people would actually be interested in getting?

Just as an FYI: I won't be around tomorrow, as my mom wants us to do Family Together Times and we are going to Universal Studios. I have not been to Universal since I was like...five years old or something. At least long before the Jurassic Park ride was built. SO, I am looking forward to going and seeing what's about and having fun! I really have no clue what they've added there except for Jurassic Park and the King Kong 3D show. I'm sure there's more they've done. We'll find out tomorrow...

I want this "You" situation taken care of  
So before I get to anything else, I have an important question for comics-friends on my flist, especially people who've published before, since I know there's some awesome artists here who've done that before...

I'm getting really close to finishing up Lunargyros. Like, just a couple of pages left to draw (even if I've still got a lot more to post.) So I really want to try and find a print publisher for it! I've tried out a couple of places, but not gotten really far thusfar. Either contract problems or just no interest. So I wanted to ask: does anyone know of a good company to go to that would be willing to publish something like Lunargyros, probably in two or three books? It's going to be 350 pages total, plus whatever supplemental stuff I want to add. And obviously Tokyopop isn't going to work out now...

Or that failing, I know a few people have self-published! What's a good print-on-demand company that you can recommend, especially for books that large? I heard Ka-Blam is pretty decent? How do you usually go about promoting/selling self-published comics, aside from at cons and online? (I don't think I can afford a table at SDCC unless I shared with many people...maybe Anime LA would work better...) Any thoughts are welcome!

Last night for Father's Day we went out and saw X-Men First Class, and it was highly enjoyable! :D Would totally recommend dudes go see it! It was definitely better than the third one or Wolverine, anyway...

Some spoilers in here )

And finally, we have up another episode of our Let's Play Kingdom Hearts 2!

We'll record more tonight, and hopefully it'll go well! /o/

Well she did ask for the mermaid cut  
There's two new Lunargyros pages up from Friday, you can read 'em here.

SO. [ profile] yamikonumber7 and I started in on another project. XD We'd thought of doing this for awhile, and finally decided to go ahead with it:

So now you know for certain that I sound like a total doof. XD This is our first try at an LP, so there's still kinks to work out...mostly fixing the video so it's not doing that interlacing thing, and the audio so it's not layered. Any suggestions on improvement are welcome! We shall have future parts going up soon...

I've been doing some more realism practice at internship, when I have the time. Still aways to go (and still wish I had my brushes) but practice makes perfect an' all:

One painting )

Also, at least last time I had the internship I was able to actually contribute to a project! It was a small contribution, but it was something nonetheless!

And finally, latest waking-up drawings:

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, [ profile] skillsontoast, IM me whenever you like!

ALSO ALSO, [ 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.

Two paintings )

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

New LG pages are up for Friday, and you can check them out here.

Mreh, life's still fairly boring around here...I imagine things are going to get a lot crazier in July and August (since cons and such, woo!) I feel like I should really be starting in on another huge art project (or at least doing more boards) but mostly I feel like I can't start anything until LG is done, which it almost is. @_@ Of course, then it's also a matter of finding a print publisher, which is going slow...

Internship has also been slow, but yesterday I just spent almost the entire day just sitting up with the artists and doing some realism painting practice. I'm employing a method suggested by the concept artist there, which I'm liking so far because realism is really haaaaaard for me. And I just talked to the animator up there (who's done a bunch of Disney movies) and it was informative and enjoyable! Any time I don't have work to do around internship, I'm just going to go up and do that.

So here's just more waking-up drawings...

Under-covers drawings 81-84 )

I want to color another waking-up drawing again, but I dunno which one to do. Any particular past ones that have stood out to you dudes that you'd want to see colored?

Love, Vincent Price  
New Lunargyros page is up today; read it here.

Did Disneyland on Sunday with the usual crew, and it was much fun! We were specifically going for all the new rides that just opened. First things first, we did Pirates (which is now featuring Blackbeard at certain points instead of Davy Jones...they use about the same lines anyway, so there's not much difference there). We had reservations at Blue Bayou right after, and finally got a waterside seat, woo! I've always wanted waterside for Blue Bayou. XD

Then it was lining up for Star Tours. The wait time listed two hours, but this was a was more like 3+ hours. We entertained ourselves as best we could (I brought my PSP and sketchbook), and we did word games, but man after three hours in mostly-sunny queue, it got kinda difficult. (I'm also pretty certain I got sunburned.) Luckily, the ride was worth the wait! There's a bunch of different combinations of places you can go for the revamp, and we ended up getting the pod race in Tatooine and then vs. Boba Fett in the asteroid field. I know a lot of people don't like the Episode I stuff, but I maintain that pod racing is much better suited for a ride or video game than a movie. It was fun! I wanna try and get other planets, as long as we make sure to get a fast pass next time.

We then headed on over to the new Little Mermaid ride in DCA. A much shorter wait, but that could have been because it was a lot later in the day and people were starting to shift over to ElecTRONica. I love how it was built a lot like the oldschool darkrides in Fantasyland, including the not-quite-on-model paintings where you enter the ride. It was fast-moving, basically like getting onto the ride at Haunted Mansion. Very pretty ride with great atmosphere and animatronics. However, Kia and I totally freaked out on it because...OMG INCREDIBLE MR. LIMPET! It's a very obscure reference, but oh man I remember watching that movie a bunch when I was a bitty! Kia spotted him on the other side of the main characters in the "Under the Sea" section, hiding behind some rocks and plants. Seeing Mr. Limpet on the ride totally made my day. XD

After that we hung around ElecTRONica for a bit and then did some shopping. We didn't stay long because line-waiting drained most of our energy. Man, I haven't stood in a line that long at D-Land for a looooooong time. But at least we did what we set out to do!

Also, I went to the doctor yesterday, and it turns out that I do have a sinus infection. XP Yuuuucks. I'm on antibiotics now, so hopefully that will help, but doctor says that I'll probably have balance issues for a couple of weeks. Dumb ears. :P

And random thoughts on E3 conferences so far:
- Really don't care about anything Microsoft is putting out.
- Not that much with Sony, either. The new Uncharted game looks really sweet, but considering the fact that I don't have much fun trying to get through shooters, no sense worrying about it.
- PSVida? Huuuh. I'd rather not have to buy yet ANOTHER console (already getting a 3DS eventually) but hmm we'll see...
- Nintendo stole the show again. DAYUM, THAT CONTROLLER. That's some pretty cool stuff. I want to see what they can do with that. (Doubles as a drawing tablet, weee!)
- New Zelda game looks shiny, as does new Smash Bros and everything else they're doing!
