Many apologies about
last night. I went against my morals... specifically the
"thou shall not bitch or try to talk to friends through
blog" moral. It's rude.
So. Ah. Anyway. I'm not
depressed, suicidal, homicidal, blah-blee-blah. Don't
think I am. I'm not that kind of person. Really. So. I'll
be back from the Shakespeare Festival on Friday night. (I
hope.) And Fallen WILL BE UPDATED NEXT SUNDAY! And I
promise you, Gabe will be insulted yet again!
And Josh! I'll scan in
the photos when I get home! Sorry it's taken so
I'm sorry about this. I
don't think Fallen will get updated this Sunday. (meaning
today, if you're in EST.) I tried to, halfheartedly...
but there are a lot of things weighing me down. Social
Meaning the things I do
very poorly in.
Also, I'm not going to
be here for the next week. I'm going to be in Canada from
Monday morning to Friday evening. PLEASE refrain from
sending me any really large files-- I don't have that
much room in my e-mail left.
Erm, have some fun

That's it for updates.
If you feel like continuing on, I have a half hour left
on the computer and I'm so stressed out, I might as use
the blog as an outlet.
I don't have many
friends. In fact, I think there are two people I've met
over the years whose friendships have survived and who I
love to a point that I would call them family.
Unfortunately, I have recently found out what an ass I've
been to my friends. All of them. Some more than others.
But none of this has ever been out of spite. Simply
I'm not a very smart person. And I cannot understand well
the difference between misunderstanding and hatred. I am
a careless person. And it seems that over the duration of
the summer, I have slowly cut against my and my friend's
friendship without knowing it. And if she's reading this,
I am sorry. Sorry and frightened to a point that I am
shaking. I am sorry.
I've already lost one
of my dearest friends this summer-- and I'm afraid I've
lost another one. Things aren't going well for me. At
this rate... well, I don't want to think about
Oh, and to anyone going
to the 5-year anniversary Sluggy
party, I'm going. So you can see me all stressed out and
such. Unless, of course, I get horribly maimed sometime
over the course of tomorrow. Which may just
In which case, I will
probably not go to the party.
Hmm.. here's been my
schedule for the week...
Monday: Go to the
dentist for the tooth that's been causing me EXTREME
amounts of pain for the past 2 months. He refuses to cap
the tooth, sends me to a guy who specializes in root
canals to see if I need one. Get a bunch of Lilo and
Tuesday: Go to the Endodonist (guy who specializes in
root canals) Conversation as follows:
Doctor: Okay, you need
a root canal. I can give you one now!
Me: .... meep.
Anywho, all went well,
my tooth still hurts a lot from HAVING ITS INSIDES
HOLLOWED OUT, but it isn't sensitive to cold anymore.
Which I guess is a good thing. Plus the nurse gave me one
of my nerves in a little plastic baggie. It's so cute! It
looks kinda like an embryo. ^^
Actually, I feel pretty
bad for killing the tooth... I mean, it's dead now.
Forever. I... I'm a tooth murderer! What have I
SO. Anyway. Have some
Also, here's the
version of a
picture I'm planning on selling on E-bay. It's Selal, the
Guardian character who was just introduced into the
comic. Gonna color it soon.... I'm all paranoid I'll mess
Mmm, that's about
I've been working extra
hard this week to have the new site for Fallen done on
time. Ugh, that was PAINFUL to do. I went through about 5
different potential designs before I landed on this one.
And it's still pretty simple. (I'm not very good at web
design... >_>; )
I really don't have
anything useful or interesting to say... so have a quick
story and a link!
Once upon a time... I
used to be acquainted with a girl named Aysha through
Rho. She was
about my age... maybe younger. A very talented artist. I
came across her website by accident a few weeks ago
and... it's shameful how skilled she's become. Y'know,
it's rude to leave me in the dust like that.
out her site.
O-kay, so I've finally
finished my complete overhaul of the Fallen section of
the site. It is now its own website! (... or at least it
looks like one. ^^; ) I'll post it tomorrow with the rest
of the update.
I'm also very happy
because I get to introduce one of my favorite minor
characters tomorrow. ^^ Hehe.
That's really about
it-- I've been feeling bad about neglecting my blog. I
haven't been drawing too much other than comic-type
... I've also been
seriously looking into selling stuff on e-bay since I'm
lacking in the money department... except that would mean
I've have to use mediums other than photoshop...
Ookay, will post
interesting things tomorrow!
Me: I think you have a
soul-- it's just a little dirty. Y' just need to clean it
off a bit.
John: What can you clean a soul with?
(okay, so it's monday morning.)
I'm late by an hour. So
mleah. I didn't have the stamina to finish coloring the
third page... so that'll be in next week's
Ye-ahh... and a few of
my Otakon pictures...

no one really knew.
Hehe. I'm not obsessed.
(time: 9:45 PM
I'm trying to color
three pages of Fallen in a record time with a throbbing
hand... I really have to wear my hand-brace more often.
I'll also have Otakon
pictures! Just gimmie a few more hours!
(time: 11:40... furvect
isn't FTPing... I'll keep on trying. -.- )
(time: 12:10... furvect
STILL isn't letting me FTP....arrr. *brandishes wooden
(time: 1:30... okay, screw this. I'll try again when I
wake up. )
N'ragg... page 35 is
pissing me off. Not only did I have to flip the entire
page and futz with everyone's heads because I drew Singe
and Gabe in the wrong seats, the blocking sucks and it
flows badly. NYAH. >_< Stupid non-symmetrical
On top of that, the
tooth that has had next to no enamel on it since birth
that the dentist refuses to cap is making it impossible
for me to eat or drink anything cold. DAMMIT! Mrahhrg!
Speaking of good
things, I've gotten a taste of .hack//sign, one of the
coolest animes ever. I love Bear. He reminds me a lot of
Pyr... crossed with William Wallace. ^^;
Aaaanndd... I didn't
scan in the round-robin comic... sorry, John/Eric... I'll
do it eventually.
In the meantime, I'll
just get continually harassed by my mom waving around a
college application. Yarr.
O-kay, here's the deal
with the comic... I was away the entire weekend at a RIT
seminar-thing and had no time to work on the comic. I
REALLLLYY don't have the time to finish drawing let alone
coloring today, so Fallen will update tomorrow! Sorry
Here, have a
of the comic.
Also, I'll try to scan
in the horrendously strange round-robin comic from
Otakon. (I still don't have my photos back... *sniffle*
(I have walking sushi!)
(thought I uploaded
this earlier-- oops.)
Four days of surviving
mainly on instant ramen and peanut butter and jelly
sandwiches. Hot diggity damn. XD Otakon was possibly of
of the most entertaining experiences I have ever had. The
main downsides were an excess of beggars and random asses
in cars hassling the cosplayers. Otherwise, it was highly
enjoyable and mildly lucrative. I am SO getting a table
at the Artist Alley next year.
It was unbelievable the
number of Vash and Auron cosplayers around. And I think I
got photos of every single Auron. (Mmmmm.... .Auron.....
) I can't wait to get my pictures developed. There was
even a person who made a giant Kuro Neko Sama suit who
was staying in the hotel room next door. (although I
didn't get a picture of her. *sadsigh* )
SPEAKING of which!
Quistis! You have my mechanical pencil! E-mail
True, I didn't have the
patience to stay in the lines to meet Largo,

On the last night John,
Eric, and I wrote a 12+ page round-robin comic about what
would happen to Vash if he was in the star wars universe.

there was someone dressed up as Faustus wandering around.

Mmm, that's about it.
I'm going to go and play with my new spiffy flesh-colored
(OTAKON! XD )
W0000t. O-kay, I'm
leaving for the pre-Otakon mega-crapmed-psyched-up
sleepover in a few hours.... I still haven't completely
finished my boomerang. That being because I ditched the
paper mache idea yesterday because the thing got too
heavy, so I wound up carving one of John's old boogie
boards. (it's about a foot shorter than the paper mache
one, but it'll be less awkward anyway.) Why didn't I
think of styrofoam in the first place...
SO! If you're going to
be around, I'll be the person wandering around the con
(although I have an alternate outfit in the form of a
generic schoolgirl uniform which I probably won't wear
unless I nearly die of heat. Which I might just.) I
didn't want to get a table in the Artist Alley because
that means less fun for me... but I will be carrying
around a portfolio of prints that I will be
selling... if anyone happens to want to stop me. (I
checked this out with the people running the
convention... it's okay. So don't stop me and accuse me
of being stingy. I'm just lazy.) I also got business
cards. Ooooh, I feel so cool.
Arright, I think that's
about it. I will return with many photos, stories, and
perhaps (but not necessarily) a con report.
Bye! Fallen will return
Yes! I have completed
the myth! ... this also means that I can't use an outer

The new design for the
Fallen site is coming along slowly. I've come up with
about 6 schemes and none of them have really worked well.
Thank you to the people I got e-mails from who tried to
help-- but I want to do this myself. I'll hopefully
eventually reply to the e-mails themselves at some point.
(I'm so behind on e-mail... *sob*)

pretty pretty shiny Jen-fanart!
W00t! I have much happiness. Lookie!

fanart-type stuff... I know I have some that I haven't
peered at in my in-box... but that's all in the great
evilness of the e-mail situation that I'm in. I SWEAR
I'll reply to e-mails. Really! Send me fanart!
Mmm, that's about it. I
have to go and design crap.
