  • Listening to: Cuphead - Carnival Kerfuffle
I've been neglecting this gallery! I have a bunch of stuff to put up, which I'll do this weekend. If you follow me on Tumblr, you've seen it all already, but I'll put it up here too for everyone not on Tumblr or who prefers to see the art here. :) Lots of Sanders Sides stuff, but also a few pet portraits! I've written fanfics, too, but I don't know if I'll post those here.

^^;

Sorry for the lack of art--work has been super busy (I've actually never had a job where I had no time to doodle for a little bit, so this is kind of new for me) and I've been coming home really tired. I dropped Inktober a week or two ago, unfortunately, but at least I got partly through it! I shall have new stuff up soon. :)
Sorry art's been a little slow here lately! I had a lot of downtime at my previous job and have zero at my new one, and when I get home I'm kind of tired/out of it, so I've definitely slowed down some.

There may be some animal sketches/drawings in my gallery soon as I try out a new subject based on a family friend's suggestion! I'm working on one now, but I've misplaced my colored pencils and can't continue, so that's on hold until new pencils can be acquired. ^^; Excited to try something new, though!
Hey all,

I've had a couple things to post or that I'm working on but haven't been able to, and now I kind of don't feel like it. I'm taking a little break to just sort things out in my brain a bit, and I'll keep drawing in the meantime. I was showing a coworker my art and they really liked it, so I know I just need to keep going with it even when my heart's heavy and all I can do is worry for the future.

I'll have more art up soon. For people who have just started watching me, thank you so much and I apologize for not getting art out sooner.
Aaaaaahhhh I'm so sorry I haven't been on here!! I've been drawing on and off and will be posting a few things soon. Maybe even later today. Things have been kind of weird lately, but I promise they've been okay and I'm sorry if I worried anyone. ^_^

Long time, no write!

I'm in my last week of school--I graduate on May 17th. I will be drawing and posting more from this point. I AM still having problems with my hands, but I'm hoping I'll be able to get to the bottom of it once I get home and don't have to worry so much about health insurance. (School insurance only pays a portion of costs, and money has been incredibly tight this past year.) So yeah, look for some art from me! Just to show I'm not dead, I'm posting the finished products of what I worked on for my Honors Thesis this year. :D
  • Watching: Ridiculousness
I'm having issues with my hands lately, so haven't drawn much in at least a week. :/ It's arthritis or carpal tunnel or something. I can't find out at the moment because I lack insurance (yay unemployment/full-time student status), but I'll be taking steps to fix that on Monday. I hope to start posting stuff soon, I want to get some things done before classes start again. ^^; Sorry for the lack of activity!
  • Watching: Mythbusters!
And that means so's my photography class... which, while I had some aggravation at times with printing and processing film, was a blast. A lot of people sell their 35mm cameras after their beginning photography classes, but I'm definitely keeping mine. I might even ask my professor if I can continue to work in the darkroom on my own next semester if I have my own supply of photo paper and film. I want to continue working with film even as I move on to digital. I wish there was an intermediate film photography class! Unfortunately, they discontinued it.

Now that I have TIME, I'm gonna draw some. Hopefully I'll have some stuff up soon! There might end up being another absence because I'll probably send my laptop to Dell for repairs, and I don't know how long that'll take. But I'll be back. :D
  • Listening to: Homestuck soundtracks
It was time, y'all! It's also more relevant to current interests. XD I also need to get a new devID uploaded, the current one's almost two years old at this point. LOL, laziness/not drawing myself. Except I just did that, so yeah. I'm just going to bump my age up to 31 so I don't have to change it in May!

Schoolwork hasn't really picked up yet, and the good thing is that a lot of my work is project-based, not paper-writing or exam-based, so I might be able to draw more than I originally thought. I'm going to try to get at least one pic up every week. I don't want to stop drawing--I went through a LONG dry spell before and don't want to repeat it.

  • Reading: A book on introversion and extroversion, Quiet
I'm going to start doing commissions! This is for two reasons:
--I'll be heading back to college and, with classwork, won't have as much time available to draw.
--I've had some financial issues come up and I need the money!

Of course, there's the added bonus for me of drawing things I'm not used to (like with Gexon's request), which is always good practice. :D

Prices:
--Sketches, bust shots: $4
--Full-body (black and white): $7
--Color single characters or black and white multiples: $10
--Complicated stuff (full-color multiples, other detailed stuff): $15

I'm going to limit myself to 5 slots initially: If I feel I can handle it, I'll open up more.

I accept Paypal. Send me a note if you're interested! And thank you! :)

I'll be back home for about a month tomorrow sometime, and I might be shipping my laptop out to Dell to have some things repaired, which means I'll be computer-less unless I can use my brother's when he's not around. SO, I'll still be drawing, but may not be able to get anything up until I get the computer back. That's IF I send it off, but anyway. XD

I can honestly say I haven't drawn this much in quite a while. I completely blame/thank Homestuck for that. There will be plenty more fanart!

So yeah. XD;

The fall semester is coming to a close! I have about a week left, then one quick thing to do the following week, and I'm done and get to go home for about a month. I've had to do a lot of drawing over the past few days, but all of it's crap because it was rushed. (They're storyboards and character sketches. Everyone else was impressed, but I'm sure you all, as artists, get it! I feel like so much more work could've been done with them, and they would've looked so much better, if I'd had the TIME. Unfortunately things were pretty hectic and I drew 30 storyboard images in the span of three or four hours, the night before I showed them to my team members. Anyway, rambling...) I might revisit it while I have some free time and make the drawings look better, and post them here. I'm going to try to keep the gallery up more. This semester was just crazy, even though I was only taking 13 credits. Lots of work = CJ goes missing for months. ^^;

Also, I've started reading (or listening to, with the Let's Read videos on Youtube) Homestuck. There MAY be fanart in the future. XD
  • Listening to: LMFAO - Best Night
Well, technically third, but first year at Juniata College. :D No idea what my plans are for this summer, but hopefully a LOT of art will come out of it. I might try my hand at some fanart. Skyward Sword and Kid Icarus Uprising have kind of taken over my life this year. PLAY THEM. XD

Yeah, summer! \o/
So art's gonna be slow in coming for the next month or so, between college and NaNoWriMo. I have things drawn up, but getting time to work on them is a challenge at this point in the semester. ^^; I'll have stuff up soon!
Because I saw it on fullxmetalxgir's journal and had to. XD

So, uh, I broke my tablet pen. I live in a dorm now. Dorm = no carpet. No carpet = dead tablet pen. Dead tablet pen = unhappy CJ. No art from me until I can get a replacement! I probably won't have time to work on it anyway, LOL.
In my last semester, taking five classes, so I have a LOT of work to do. One of those classes is Graphic Narrative, though, so I'll have some artwork to put up.

Getting laid off from my job in about a month. Good news: More free time for classwork and drawing! Bad news: No money. ^^;

ANYWAY! Classes are over soon for a couple of weeks, so hopefully I'll have more stuff to put up.

Between work and school, I have no time to visit dA and drawing has suffered. (Well, except school stuff. That's going well. :D) I've taken to sketching people on the train in pen to force myself to deal with mistakes. Will try to get some stuff up soon.
