I realize I haven't been active on here art-wise in a few months... Sorry again! I've been trying to concentrate on school and such because I have two huge exams at the end of the year that I need to pass or I'll get put in a tutoring class next year, kicking me out of Publishing for half the year :/ (coming from a small middle school that taught next-to-nothing, it's reasonably difficult to know everything for the test...). I've just raised my grade up in honors Bio from a C to a B (which is good for me because I suck at Bio), but I'm still trying to work on getting my B averages in History, Algebra, and English up... I know I should be doing waaay
better in those classes, so I need to focus on them. Also, due to snow, I've missed a lot of guitar practice so i need to practice for that, too, and if I haven't said on here, I also caught a bad cold bug last week that really knocked me down. It's been one thing after another!
Other than normal art, I'd like to give you some updates on my "collaboration" projects and other stuff:
-FF:tC Audio Project:
All the lines for chapter 1 were sent out, and I have almost all of them that I need. The ones I have so far have been organized in a Sony Vegas project file, and I'm working on some drawings for the parts in chapter one that I added on. Mostly, it will be actual gameplay in the videos, but if anyone wants to contribute artwork to the chapters, feel free! I could use a lot for chapter one, but please don't be discouraged if I can't use all of them!
This is a new and more recent one. A couple Fossil Fighters fans and I have gotten together and made an ask blog for all the different versions of Dina we have. ^-^ It's going to be random and fun, so if you want to check it out go here: askthedinabrigade.tumblr.com/
Unfortunately, due to lack of time and ideas, I'm not going to be making a sequel to my fanfic. However, this doesn't mean I'm done writing about my favorite little heroes' adventures! Though it won't be a full-fledged story like you guys were hoping for, I'm still going to be writing little stories here and there about them. ^-^ I'm actually working on one right now as a matter of fact!
I hope you'll still like them as much as FF:tC, and maybe I'll do a replay fanfic of the original Fossil Fighters in the future!
-Legend of the New Moon:
Ah yes, my ancient, mary-sueish Okami fanfic..
I know a couple of you are still fans of this; I haven't forgotten about you! But as I said I just don't have much time to write anymore. I am working on the semi-final chapter slowly, but I've kinda hit a roadblock... Hopefully I can finish it soon...
I don't think too many of you are fans of my original stories just yet because I really haven't posted much of them (I'm talking about Broken Silence, Strays: The Runaways, Fahrenheit (which is brand-new), and Bloody Mary), but I'm hoping to change that soon. I've developed the characters a lot more, and I'm improved my art, so I've been drawing reference sheets during homeroom that I will eventually outline and post on here. You may have noticed the empty section that is for my OC refs. Well, that's where they'll be going!
If you guys are more interested in knowing about the stories, let me know and I'm make a journal with some info. Otherwise, I hope you guys enjoy them once I start posting them!
As for normal art and animations, here's a checklist in order from most important to least important (I'll cross out things as i make my way down the list):
Kiriban- Chernobyl for
(looped animation/possibly a pixel icon)
Art Trade- Frieza Paffendorf video for
(this may take longer because of the detail, but it's still long overdue)
First of the Last MAP parts 8 & 9- the battle between Echo and Strix after their first encounter (I have a lot of sketches done for this one so it will hopefully be done soon!)
Drawings for FF:tC- I have one almost done, and a couple more to go. Once again please send me some of yours if you can/wish to! It would be a big help, and you will be credited in the video and description along with a link to your artwork!
Character References: Kirin, Scorch, Strike, Steel, Madeira, Chroma, Sylus, Mira, and other assorted BS characters. Echo, Sukani, Volt, Yukishi, Neko, and other assorted Fahrenheit characters/LotNM redesigns. Other characters have yet to be started.
Random Drawings: So far I have to finish
my Kalos Pokemon Team drawing, an unnamed drawing of Chroma (sketch still in progress), a drawing of Coatlus titled "Starstruck" (needs to be outlined/colored/shaded), an older drawing of Neko titled "One More Soul to the Call" (needs to be shaded), an older drawing of Echo titled "Enter the Shadows" (needs to be shaded), and a few more assorted ones that I don't know off the top of my head...
Just to let you guys know I am trying to get stuff done! Thanks for being patient and supportive! I love you all and want you too know how important you are to me >U< I do update my Tumblr more often, so if you want some updates on what's going on or if you want to chat, please come follow me. I've been posting a ton of WIPs for my parking meter project that I think you'll enjoy. coatlus.tumblr.com/
