Sub, iScribble, Page Redo, and Updates

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 28, 2014, 11:40 AM
Nature Itself Would Weep For You by Songdog-StrayFang

I realized I had enough points for a while that I could buy a three month sub, so figured might as well.  And the journal I had up was very old, so here's a  new one. I'll talk about more vaguely interesting things first and put the boring update stuff at the bottom so you can skip over it.

I am a bit sad that so many of the people I talk with are sort of diverging because of school and work. And I totally get that, because I have a full time job too and I can't be on as much for general shenanigans. I hope to be able to continue talking with the people I'm close with even as we grow old and are yelling at kids to get off our lawn.

Next week on mid-day Saturday I'd like to do a little iScribble with people on DA (friends, acquaintances, people that randomly happened upon my page, etc). Would you guys be interested? Keep in my I use a mouse digitally. I think it would be fun. If you're interested, let me know your iScribble account; I'll make a private board and invite people. I haven't touched iScribble in ages.

Also, I've been wanting to do this for awhile never but never knew which page to pick. I've been wanting to go back through my CC stuff, pick one page, and redo it. Totally pointless, but just to see what it would look like a bit nicer. I never advocate redoing pages but obviously this is just for a comparison of art change over time (CC being well ended). Which page should I do? If you have a suggestion, drop me a comment and I'll take the suggestions and make a poll. Preferably pick one of the older rounds where the art is more atrocious and before the shading kicked in.

My friend and I have been really happy for all the awesome comments (and even two pieces of fan art!) for Gate of the Darkness of the Heart. We're glad people thought it was mildly funny, because we really just have fun making crap up. It'll be continuing once a week, although a bit late this week due to some schedule shenanigans.

Now for general update stuff.

Icons have taken awhile; super sorry. I'm probably going to finish Kahea's first, and then skip the list to do the one actually commissioned for (I hate to keep commissioners waiting).

As for Woundbearer, I'm remembering how much editing sucks. I've had the next chapter done since I started that one picture. And I've even finished the chapter after it. But editing, man. Also...I'm actually nearing the end of the story. It's kind of crazy to realize that. After I finish, I'll probably move the chapters to storage (so I can still see the awesome feedback I received) because I want to look into publishing. I'm keeping a realistic mindset about this, and really I just think it's important that I at least go through the process to see what it's like (rejection letters included, of course).

PS: Halloween is around the corner. Eeee.

Allow me to apologize in advance as I have a habit of getting into many arguments. But hey, would you like some tea? :tea:

This is actually an older one, but a group I run closed down as of today. So a lot of us put on our character icons for one last hurrah.

I have two other icons to finish up, but I can make a pixel deer icon for you if you would like :tea:
