update... AGAIN? The hell's wrong with Aido?
I'm sorry. My friend was suddenly diagnosed with
appendicitis and had to have surgery immediately.
I spent most of my afternoon/evening on and off the phone
and at the hospital.
and all that comicing time lost.
in apology, I have a few pictures...
picture of Kosai
(Ms. Nazka) in a flapper dress. Forgive me, the
Chicago-ness is inescapable. Also a small picture of a
character design for someone who'll come in later.
I didn't want to post this until I actually finished the
picture... but here it is anyway. Faustus
It'll be covered in blood and AudioSlave lyrics when I'm
working, though! Really, I swear! Next week! You'll see!
would now like to point out that this past Friday was pie
day. Well... technically, ¼ day. (Y'know... March 14th...
3/14... 3.14...) In celebration, pie was
I missed Children of Dune... rharr...
Also, remember to check Mory!
My guest comic will be shown some time in the next
(many alterations of game sprites...)
I'd have some nifty
scanned art, but I'm far too tired right now to do squat.
So I'll share what I did earlier this week.... I went and
jumped on the bandwagon and made a Capcom vs SNK
for Pyr. It
took me a while to figure out how to make transparent
gif's again... >_>
Also, I would like to
wish a very happy, very late happy birthday to
I'm sorry I forgot about the Fortnight! You have to
remind me of these things! I'm doing my comic, really!
One last thing I must
me. E-hehe... I love my bag. XD
I'm not sure if words
can properly express how completely exhausted I am right
now. Finishing up that page took more out of me than
doing stage crew.
Only two more shows
I can't believe I'd be
upset to have an early closing from school. Stupid,
stupid snow... they CANCELED THE MUSICAL! ... actually,
they postponed Thursday's show until Monday. But saying
"cancel" is so much more dramatic, don't you
Anywho, so school got
out a little after noon. Driving home in two inches of
slush was life-threatening, as usual. Once again I ask
myself, why the hell am I going to college in
So, I got home and
figured that I'd color Fallen, since I said I'd have it
by the end of the week. But did I? Noooooo, of course
not. Instead, I colored a sketch of Jhnih
and Riley from
Swords. I love
Riley. And it's not because he's a badass vampire who
looks like Faustus.
Yeesh, I'm such a
In short, the colored
Fallen page will be posted (hopefully) Saturday. All I
have to do now is shade, but I'm too tired and sore to do
it now. Tomorrow, I will have no time, since it's
technically now opening night. I still haven't gotten
work gloves to work the scrim. Curses... -_-
I dreamed last
night I got on the boat to heaven...
And by some chance, I had brought my dice along...
And as I stood, and I hollered, "Someone fade me!"
But the passengers, they knew right from
Ah, the drama
geek-y-ness of me. I wish I could act. *sigh*
Ah yes, and revel in my new obsession: Crash
in it! She's still aliiiivvveee! (I love mickey.)
Now if they only updated more often... I need more
(Stage crew! RHARR!)
I'm on stage crew. It's
messing up my comic schedule. (That and the AP bio test
tomorrow... eh... heh... I'm
Posted a niftily disturbing partially colored page and no
eastern god section. Makes me unhappy.
"Oh, woe is me, I can
neither sing nor act, and working as student artistic
director every year for the musical isn't enough,
sooo.... I'll bust my ass doing stage crew so I can get
yelled at constantly! YES! I'm such a genius."
I'm sure that was
exactly what was going though my head.
The musical's Thursday
through Sunday next week, so I don't think I'll be able
to do anything for the comic. Uggh.
Guys and dolls... we're
just a bunch of crazy guys and dolls.....
Ah, thank you dissolve
filter. The confetti devours my soul.
One new page of comic
is up. As expected, it kicked my ass. My posture has been
sucking lately from the amount I've been at the computer.
I'm hoping to get the
eastern god's section up. The world should know how much
Dhio kicks ass. Ah, my sweet, sweet metal

Finished coloring that
page I put up last night. I'm really proud of how it
turned out, so go look! No new pages yet, though. Try me
Wednesday or Thursday. The next page is going to give me
a really hard time, I can tell already. -_-
I'm so happy!
got my pekkage! I'm so proud of my pekkages. Among many
other useless things, I sent her a small box of Bernie
Bott's Every Flavor Beans, because I believe that
everyone should partake of their highly amusing
horridness. "UGHHHHHH! I just ate a "dirt" bean.... and
it really does taste like dirt, ACK!!!"
.... where did that
(Curse you, research paper!)
I can't believe I only
got to color one page for today. I worked my bum off
drawing until about 2-3:00 Saturday night (well, this
morning technically...) and I had to work the entire day
on the research paper that I've been putting off all
....well, not exactly
"all day"... I did spend a couple hours here and there
checking webcomics and looking up Harry Potter fanart.
It's shameful how many Sirius/Lupin slash pics there are.
Kinda screws with your head. Especially because they're
my favorite characters. At least no one touched Bill...
he's way up there... with long hair, earring and all...
Very much hoping to
color the next two pages some time in the middle of this
week, if possible. Disturbing scenes to come.
Hmm. My mom made me
take down the picture I put up last night, calling it
"sexual." Screw sexual. It's my fricking

Ah, it's time to update
on Aido's life. The fun never ceases. W00t!
Anywho, I spent most of
my morning and afternoon in/around doctor's offices. Many
various flavors of pain were to be had. Over the course
of the entire day, I think I had a total of four shots of
REALLY PAINFUL CRAP injected into my
The morning consisted
of me getting a meningitis shot to prepare for college,
which wasn't all that bad, considering that I got a
band-aid with Bubbles on it and a sticker of a UFO. What
was bad is the continual pain which always follows
injections for about for about 3 days. It feels like
someone attacked my arm with a golf club. X_x
In addition, my
afternoon was spent... DUN-DUN-DUN.... at the dentist's
getting my bad tooth FINALLY fricking capped. (I don't
know how many times I've complained about this same tooth
on this blog, but I've had a total of 3 fillings on that
tooth and a root canal and it's STILL bothering me. My
dentist says its root is cracked. Ugh.) So after getting
stabbed by a couple needles full of novicane and getting
completely bloodied up, I now have a temporary cap over
my first top left molar.... which is great, except for
the lingering bitter taste of whatever cement they
At least I got about 5
stickers from them....
So... my day really
wasn't as bad as I'd like to make it out to be...
considering that I did zero schoolwork and got to watch
about 10 episodes of Inuyasha...
Okay, that was my day
in a nutshell. Hope it entertained someone.
And on a side-note... I
went to Shao's
birthday party yesterday. It was kinda weird, since I was
the only person invited not hearing impaired and I don't
know a whit of ASL except for the alphabet, the sign for
thank you, and the sign for bacon.... It was nifty-keen
anyway. The people were nice, the deserts were
fan-tabulous, and Shao liked what I got him.
I suppose I should have
a nifty link for the day... I've been hopelessly addicted
to the Strings
of Fate messageboard
since its opening. It's gotten me thinking of making a
message board for Fallen... although I know it won't get
as much of a crowd as SoF...
(copy and paste time!)
Once again, I'm just
copying and pasting the blurb from the Fallen site
because I find it amusing...
it officially being nearly 2:00, is isn't exactly
"tomorrow" in relation to Sunday. I have an update
nonetheless! (even though it's all redone pages... at
least Singe 1) now looks like she's 15 in the flashback
and 2) no longer looks like a deranged narcoleptic elf.
thing to clear up: I'm sure EVERYONE has been completely
confused by the switch of Holly's name with Hall. I
realized something a bit after I wrote the first
flashback, one of the most important aspects of Holly's
personality... her great need for versatility and
ambiguity. This is the reason she changed Singe's name
and cut her hair. Therefore, she would go by a unisex
name rather than a blatantly female one.
the problem with bringing pre-created characters into a
new story. The character Holly is actually older than
Fallen's story... she was a character in a short story I
wrote way-back-when. I named her Holly because that was
my favorite name back then.
I was a
Currently in the
process of being snowed in. Dammit! Why does the big
blizzard of the year have to come when we're OFF school?
Anywho, the comic
update is really measly today. I'm going to have another
one tomorrow to make up for it. Actually, it would be
later today, considering it's technically Monday now...
And check out the backgrounds I made!
The ABSOLUTE coolest
thing I've heard in the past week: Toonami has taken up
.hack//sign. I love Bear. Mostly because he reminds me so
much of Pyr. And the dub... isn't bad. I'm hoping it's
not as convoluted as the fansubs it out to be... that
would be upsetting. Especially because after the
15th-20th episode or so it seems that they start
recycling the same information over and over... in the
badassingest kickass pretty anime style EVER. Oh MAN I
wanna have a .hack//sign RP.
Yeeguz, a plow just
drove by... it's 2:00 in the morning. I'd hate that job.
Plow drivers, I salute you!
Oh, also... I finally
finished that dang TimeScapes
guestcomic. It's really silly. >_> I feel like I've
been plugging that comic a lot in the form of complaining
about doing that thing... (mine's "dragons have no
Whoo! That's it.
(Forget the fact that it's a day late.)
Ooookay, I must
continue with my Valentine's Day tradition.
I know 80% of the
people reading this won't understand what I'm talking
about, so to make a long story short... for the past
three years for Valentine's day I've been drawing
pictures of Izzy-- one of the manymany characters that
live in my head-- rather scantily clad. Erros, one of my
avian kin characters is always stuck in there for the
cute play on his name... y'know, Eros, Cupid, Greek/Roman
god, etc.. (He hates it.)

It took me HOURS. It's actually a compilation of four
different pictures. Younger viewers be advised...
the picture that was cut up in the back.
That's it... I don't
know how big I'll be able to make the Fallen update
tomorrow... I really want to finish my guest strip for
today, being the last deadline for strips and all... but
this week is winter vacation, so I hope to get a lot done
for next week.
... I hope.
By the way, the latest
installment of Strings
of Fate fills
me with giddy fangirlish joy.
We're gonna go to college together! Congrads, that kicks
Fallen update isn't as
big as I'd like it to be. (then again, it never is.) I
didn't get to redo any pages this week. Yarrg.

I've gotten hooked by

Yeesh, what's with this popularity thing and Fallen?
Anywho, read it. The art's better than mine. And there's
fabulous 3D modelling, oh yes.
lazy, so I'll just paste my blurb about the comic from
the Fallen site here:
weekend... did not go as well as I wanted it to. I WOULD
like to have a gods section, a cover for both part 3 and
the new section for this update-- but I was kinda tight
for time this weekend. I mean, I have all the art-- just
not the time to work on fixing it up and making it
just have to see what I can do tomorrow. I'll try to have
the Northern Gods section up sometime in the middle of
I've started redoing pages from part one. I really wanted
to start at page one... I want to get the beginning
replaced as SOON AS POSSIBLE because it is ABSOLUTELY
SHAMEFUL... but I started on the flashbacks from part
three and decided it'd be easy to redo the flashbacks
from part one while I was at it. Originally, I had the
flashbacks planned to have a rough, unfinished look. It
came out to have a crappy, half-assed look. So I've
changed my method by adding a red blur to everything.
It's more likable. I wanted to have all 6 pages of all of
the flashbacks done for today, but, as mentioned before,
time restraints bring death and half-assedness of english
might get kinda choppy in the coming weeks with the
switching between chapters. I want to appease fans and
move the storyline, but I also want to make this comic
something I can be proud of.
way... this is decidedly favorite chapter. I'm looking
forward to drawing it. You'll see why soon. Things... are
about to happen.
Look at this... I
wonder which day I was linked by Poisonwind...

there'll be art.
And pardon the
half-assed coloring on the new page. Ah well, at least
chapter 2 is done... I get to see what I can do to fix
chapter 1 now.
Also, I had new and
interesting experience today... I bought a box of Bernie
Bott's Every Flavor Beans... and ate... a sardine
flavored one. It tasted like sardines. Or maybe just old
fish. Very... very scary. The pepper ones are actually
quite good. I'm not looking forward to trying out the
boogers or vomit. Maybe I'll give those to John...
Fallen's up. One more
page and more godly info tomorrow.

Once again, my
gallery has been updated. I'm not entirely sure why I've

person. >_>; )
Gracious me! I've been

So. After I came back
from today's midterms, I basically did one thing. I
decided that I wanted to play with screentones. So, from
about 7-8 hours, I drew, inked, and colored ONE picture,
just so I could play with screen tones.... and, of
course, so I can please you Fallen readers with a bit of
love angst. Hoo-HAH.
some love angst.
Ignore the colors, they're crappy. The B/W
versions are better. For some reason, it reminds me a lot

I've been sitting in front of a screen too long.

on 2 groups and 10 sub-castes of angels. I have.... a
long way to go.
Banners for MFoD and Fallen
I realized that I
really disliked my banners. So I made new ones. It makes
me happy. I also changed my links section a tiiinnnny
bit. Took out a small handful of broken/dead links, added
a few Flash site links. I really don't want to link to
all of the webcomics I read because they're all linked
from Fallen and I don't feel like putting the time into
futzing with banners and such.

June, 21st. It will be 768 pages long. I be happy.
Contrary to popular
belief, I AM actually working on the World section of the
Fallen site. I have redesigned nearly all of the costume
designs for all of the gods and have been slowly working
on all of the art that 12 main gods, one fallen god, 2+
minor gods, and about 12 castes of angels require. (as
well as a good deal of demigod species... oy.)
So, in my extreme
workage of website and extreme slackage of school work,
have some Reáleigh art. Here's a costume
for her and Baelae, her just-as-psycho-as-his-mum pet
mask and a picture that I drew during school today of her
out of a relief
of herself in one of her temples. (don't ask me, she can
do what she wants.)
For a quick FYI,
Reáleigh (pronounced ree-YAH-lee) is the chaotic
secondary god of air, also patron of thieves and actors.
Her beast-form is a white praying mantis and can usually
be seen in human form with her mantis wings, which make
her look like an insane pixie.
That's my blurb for
today. I'm off to see if the ERB doesn't kick my ass
(keep on forgetting the '03...)
Yess! 2-page update!
The Between Gods section is done! YESSSS!!! *victory
