Hey guys, just popping in for a quick update since it's been a while since I've wrote a new journal.
So in case you haven't noticed, I've been slowly but surly uploading some new art from my Illustration class... which is going great by the way. I'm struggling a bit to come up with concepts for the assignments b/c I want/need to start challenging myself to make pieces worthy of my portfolio so I can get in to the major at all. But I'm working at it.
Still hating my design class, but it's moving a long.
In general the semester's been a lot of work, and I haven't had a lot of time to work on a lot of other things at the moment (as the title of the journal title suggests)
Lately I've been trying to finish up a little something for the upcoming Halloween season. It's nothing scary, just more characters dressed up in some kick-ass costumes, but it's taken me FOREVER to get these ones done. Really all I've wanted to do is work on my own stories and stuff. My education should be my only priority (which for the most part it is) Yet the more I try to focus, the more my mind wanders away into my own little world. (and obviously me taking the time to come here and blab about it doesn't help my case out any wither XD) Sure, I've always been a bit of a procrastinator, but I always get my work done (even if it's not always full of the potential I could probably put into it if I had actually dedicated all of my time and energy into something.) But I can't help it. I'm sure I've talked about this before, so I won't bore you with the same old shpeel.
On a side note, I've been working on getting the hang of my drawing tablet, and trying out a couple of different types of soft wear to try getting started on a web-comic I've been cooking up for a while (not as long as my books, but still a good chunk of time) Speaking of, I've also been trying to get some work done on my books too. I REALLY need to wrap these things up (as I've said a million times by now I'm sure
)( and i could also use the money to get me through school
) If anything, I'm just going to leave it as is right now, send it off to a publisher, make any small tweaks to it that I need to, and then get it out in the world. I'll leave all the drastic changes I want to make to it for the script version of it (if it were to ever get popular enough to make it that far) We all know how movies (or any other rendition that's not the original printed version) is going to change/butcher some things anyways, so if it were to happen, I'd at least want it to happen my way!
But at this point all I can do is keep you posted on whatever slow progress I can get done
Also, since when have I become so popular? I've been trying to peg the right time to upload my page view marker/promo picture, but every time I try, I get 100 more views and it makes it pointless for me to even try
So, uh, I guess that's about it for right now. I'd better get going so I can get back to work
