Why do I even bother making a Schedule?

Sigh. Well, as usual, nothing goes as planned, does it? I was planning to start things back up this month but my day job continues to keep me pretty busy. There's quite a lot of physical work involved and well... anyone who has met me knows that I have the physical strength of a toothpick who smokes. So most of my days off consist of sleeping and/or trying not to move my sore limbs @_@. I need to do that thing people do when they want to get stronger and healthier. What was it again? Eh, I'll figure it out.

Anyway, I've been working on getting a schedule that will benefit both my work and myself. And I'm working on new stuff and hopefully things will be up soon. However, with Christmas around the corner, things are only going to get busier. So, I will be extending the sorta-hiatus-probably-only-one-update-a-month thing for Christmas too.

BUT! I am working on new projects! I've been getting ready to use Youtube for my work, I'm working a new site theme for Art Slug  and I am currently working on a web comic! After some time, I've finally figured out which story of mine to do for a web comic and pretty much how to go about it, and am currently putting it together. I still have a lot to do, but i'm hoping it will be out sometime mid or late next year. Just in time for the Apocalypse! 


Seeya all soon!

Monthly Comic’s Corner: October edition!

Monthly Comic’s Corner: October edition!

Sigh. Why do I even bother making a schedule? But never mind the self pity--- It’s time for me to take a look at the comic’s I bought in October! What comic’s from DC’s New 52 made it into my line up? How does Journey into Mystery and Spider Island conclude? And what the heck is with X-23’s star-palm? Plus, I take a look at a new-ish(?) series from Image comics!

NaNoWriMo Challenge! (November News!

Hey guys! So guess what? November is National Novel Writing Month! If you haven't heard about it, it's a writing prompt challenge where you much write a whole novel (50000 words) in one month, from scratch. And I'm planning to join in this time.

But I'm going to be a bit flexible with the rules. I'm currently working on my webcomic, which will consist of mostly short stories, not one novel. I'll also be counting in everything else I write from scratch this month, including sketch-log, fanfiction, writing prompts, etc.

I'm also trying to get more serious with my art. I want to get a job in the art field. And as much as I love working on the Sketchlog, I suddenly have less time, and I really want to work on this webcomic and start drawing some bigger pieces. Hopefully, after the christmas rush is dealt with, I’ll be able to find a balance between my art and articles.

Course, you'll all just have to take my word on how close I get to that 50 000 words, since what I'm writing for the web comics mostly be scripts and outlines. I won't be able to show you guys anything, outside of teasers, sketches and a few scribbles.

So this is my goal: To write as many of my short stories as possible, and get to that 50 000 words. And since it is a webcomic, I'm going to post at least one teaser sketch/doodle/napkin scribble twice a week. I want to do more, but y’know, tis the season!

And posting things it will get me to come out from under my rock, uh, I mean, writing desk, now and again to rejoin humanity.

So I will be focusing a lot on Art Slug and DA (Bout time too!). There is only one article i have planned for the Sketch-Log: My October Comic's Corner.

And for those not that are unfamilar with my older, older, oldest work, I will also be posting the rewritten version of my fanfiction.

Stop laughing.

I like fanfiction. It’s something I enjoy, it’s a hobby, the the first person who teases me because of it will be slapped in the face with a desktop computer. I am definatly going to address the topic of “fanfiction is bad” thing, but for now, let me put it this way: It's a pastime I enjoy, and one of my "nerd weaknesses". Some people will be every Sonic Screw Driver ever manufactured, some people will make memes. At their core, there's nothing wrong with either.

It's gonna be an "interesting" month so wish me luck!

SS/OM: Monthly Comics Corner: September part 2

SS/OM: Monthly Comics Corner: September part 2

Hey guys! Ready for round two?

Check out Part One here!

Right. I know. I'm about 2 hours late. Why was I so early with part one? Cause I totally forgot to add all the jump links to all the names and topics in part one. And there are so. Many. Links. It takes about two hours extra out of my time. And Wikipedia has now burned itself into my brain @_@ I’ll fix the first one tomorrow-er-today. Whatever. Oh and suddenly, Blog spot has suddenly changed a bunch of settings on me. Joy. (Links have now been added to part one! Plus, a little extra on Batgirl and Green Lantern!)

Now that my dignity has taken it's daily hit... On to the review!

SS/OM: Monthly Comics Corner: September part 1

Hey all! Well, Super September (and October) month is finally at an end. It’s been a long two months of capes, heroes, and yes, pants.

 And with this being the end of the SSOM (Shh. I know I'm three days late. Don’t care. It’s still technically October to me.), the start of my MONTHLY COMIC REVIEWS. and the month of Halloween-- one of the greatest days ever... I did more then draw a costume this time:

Ta-DA! And yes, those are pants. No big deal. They’re just pants.

Anyway, Today, I will be reviewing all the comics I purchased that came out in September. I won’t be including Octobers comics because... this list is already longer then I planned. I bought many of DC’s NEW 52 and as much as I loved most of the comics I saw, I... just don’t have the money to keep it up. Which is a shame, because I was really torn on what comics to continue with, and I still am. The October review will be in the next week, so you’ll have to wait till then to see what I’ve picked.

(Edit: I apoligize for completley forgetting to add the links to all the names and events. I've fixed it now, plus some spelling/names issues, and i added a little more to Batgirl and Green Lantern)

BTW, this will be long, so I was forced to split it into two parts so you guys can have a break. (It came out to 23 pages when I finished O_o) Now, without further adieu:
