Naka-Chan and Otakon

Tue Aug 5, 2014, 2:15 PM

Naka-Chan Dayoooo~

Wow, it's been a real long time since I wrote a personal journal.  It's been even longer since I made a new theme :XD: Well, this theme is based on my Naka Tumblr theme.  Naka is the best ship (fact) in Kantai Collection so I figured it would make sense for me to base my theme on her </hyperbole... maybe...>:nod:

Anyways, so what's been going on in my neck of the woods?  Not a whole lot actually.  Just the usual stuff.  You know, work, drawing, Kancolle, WatchMojo, Beer, more Kancolle.  You know, the usual :XD:  Been kinda in an art block as of late but that'll likely disolve after Otakon!  

Yup, we're heading out to Otakon on Thursday and we won't be back will Tuesday.  We have not been there is a few years so I'm pretty excited for it. It kinda sucks that the Kancolle event is starting the same day, but, on the other hand, it's kind of a blessing.  We won't be tempted but the maps until the rules are clear :paranoid:  Oops, getting away from Otakon.  But, yeah, it should be a good time and my motivation to anime is always rejuvinated after a good con.  

Have a great week everyone!

Nia, Iso, and Anzu contest! (closed)This contest is now closed. Thank you to all who participated! Judging will commence soon. Stay tuned for more details!
Ready to win my money once again? :eager: It's time for another OC contest, this time featuring Nia, Iso, and Anzu all together!
:star: Objective :star:
Draw all three girls (Nia, Iso, and Anzu) together. It's just that easy.

:bulletwhite: Nia :bulletwhite:

Age: 18
Ability: spatial magic (aka teleportation)
Nia is Iso's twin sister, and despite being born just minutes earlier, she is very much the "older sister" type. While generally being rather caring, there is a tiny bit of sadism in her (directed primarily towards Iso and Anzu). Teasing Iso about a love interest, or flipping up Anzu's dress to s
Opening CommissionsI have been meaning to do this for a while. I'm not sure how much interest there is, but we will never find out if we don't announce it.
So to start we will go with "introductory prices", so I recommend you jump on the chance now ;)
I suggest the following formats and base prices:
Single Character sketch: $10
Examples:
 
I say sketch, but they are more fairly clean.
Single Character inked: $25Examples:
 
These were made to be coloured but if you prefer it to be finished just let me know, in that case they would be with more shades, detailed hair, etc.
Single Character coloured: $50Examples:
 
Like I said, these are base prices, if you ask for something more complex, like a character that I would have to design myself, a very complicated charact

:thumb471874603: $5 Mini Chibis [10 SLOTS]First batch went swimmingly. Examples can be found HERE. Since I could still use a bit of cash, I'm opening 10 more slots. $5 each, no holds, no work done until payment is received.
What do you need to do? Just send me a note with reference, your paypal, and anything else I might need to know to finish to your liking. If it goes over well, then I'll add it to my regular commissions.

Welcome to yet another round of awesome Big Thumbs!  If you are interested you can always check out the previous features in this collection :D

To make a big thumb all you do is append the word big in the thumbnail.  This is a very handy feature when doing features.  Here is how it is done:

Hanging up the Ha... heart?

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 15, 2014, 10:03 AM
Damaged Thoughts

Hello there!  I know that "hanging up the hat" doesn't really apply in the age of CV hearts but I couldn't really think of a good title that used heart.  Maybe something like "stabbed the heart with a medal"... ew, no.  :lol:  Hanging up the hat sounds so much more friendly than "giving up my heart" or something :XD:

Anyways, why am I stepping down?  Well, it's honestly time.  The main reason is ship girls work :giggle:

I'm not sure how many of you know this but I am an IT contractor and my work is fluid.  While it is very stable work (each contract is multiple years in length) it can also change on the drop of a dime.  Back in August everything was groovy.  I had plenty of time to do everything I needed to do.  The beginning of February changed all that.

At the beginning of February a man I worked with for over a decade left (not on excellent terms either.  Not gonna go into that).  Besindes his leaving crushing me (because he was the boss that turned me from an 18 year old hunk of dung into a stand up, working class citizen) He also taught me everything I know about IT. His leaving also left a major void in the team and his major responsibilities needed to be picked up.  

This change has made juggling my CV duties and IRL duties difficult.  Frankly speaking, CVing has taken a huge back seat to everything else since then (and it's shown).  I've made mistakes and I have not been giving the "job" it's just due.  I've been going through the motions and that isn't fair to anyone.  My heart hasn't been in it so I think it's time for someone with fresh piss and vinegar in their veins.  Okay, that saying might be a bit large for this topic but you know what I mean :XD:

I'm not going anywhere though.  dA is too ingrained in my life so I'll be as active as I can be.  It's just time for someone with the time and energy to do the job the way it is suppose to be done :D

Why you should never question a drunk

I was shopping at the local supermarket where I selected:
 
A half-gallon of 2% milk,
A carton of eggs,
A quart of orange juice,
A head of romaine lettuce,
A 2 lb. can of coffee
A 1 lb. package of bacon.

As I was unloading my items on the conveyor belt to check out,  a drunk standing behind me watched as I placed the items in front of the cashier.

While the cashier was ringing up the purchases, the drunk calmly stated, 'You must be single.'

I was a bit startled by this proclamation, but I was intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since I was indeed a single.  I looked at the six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about my selections that could have tipped off the drunk to my marital status.

Curiosity getting the better of me, I said , "Well, you know what, you're absolutely right. But how on earth did you know that? "

The drunk replied,  " 'Cause you're ugly."
