Been listening to the podcasts of
. This one discussing the cancelation of a couple of DC cartoons I never even watched amused me quite a bit. They discuss all manner of geekly things in a humorous manner. I used to be an avid talk radio listener until all the talk radio in my area became sports or politics. Not that I don't listen to the political talk radio, because I damn well do, but I wouldn't say that is relaxing. A podcast like this helps give the distraction from the aggravating things in life I was looking for.
Going to C2E2 in under 2 weeks now. Haven't been to hardly any conventions these last 4 years. I used to get to at least 3 a year, it seemed. Last one was Youmacon 2011. Going to be C2E2 all 3 days, so I better figure out what all panels I want to go to and such. Looking forward to meeting
. It seems
will have a table, so I'll be sure to check that out. Any of you going? I've got a lot on my plate to finish before going to C2E2. Got to submit an OC to the
OC pool jam, do 2
jams (funnest jams on the planet) finish up that commission for
(currently in a state of about 80% completion. I never thought I'd be up against so many deadlines these last few months. Sadly, after this, I probably won't be doing any more commissions for the indefinite future, as I feel I can't find the time to get them done quickly enough) and I really want to finish up that Yoko Sketchbook Pro project some of you saw me doing on the BlogTV (rest in peace, BlogTV) stream. I guess that one isn't high priority.
Anyway, things are moving far too slow on my front, with the art. My responsibilities at my day job have increased dramatically this year (not that I'm getting paid more, just stressed more) and it's kind of tiring. That, coupled with still setting up and learning Manga Studio 5, has really slowed things down. I'm starting to get the hang of it. The coloring possibilities are way beyond anything I used before, so I hope you'll put up with some experimentation over these next few months. Also dabbling in Sketchbook Pro 6, but it seems I only find time to pull that out once or twice a month for fan arts. I hope to do something with it, this week. It is a very fun program, especially with its version of Copic Markers.
