I've been writing Fever Dream again. Having a great time with it, too. It's nice to see how much more quickly I can crank out pages now. There's the risk of a wild style change mid-story, of course, since there's a nice five year gap between the posting of chapters 9 and 10, but I suppose that's still better than leaving it unfinished.

I tend to sketch whatever I'm writing. I zone out, doodle, and brainstorm ideas for upcoming chapters. So, here's a sketch of pre-Malachor Del (the same girl in my journal...picture...thingy in the upper left.) I like to think that this takes place sometime during the years when Revan was transforming into a super space-douche, but Del kept following orders because, hey, Dark Lord charisma. The moral equivalent of beer-goggles.

Clicky for enbiggened versionCollapse )
This is why I shouldn't catch up with old friends when I'm too drunk to lie about my sordid interests. 

At a holiday party with some folks I've know for over a decade, over spiked egg nog and champagne:

Friend: "So, you still writing at all?"

Me: "Yeah, quite a bit lately. I've actually finished stuff. It's a lot of fun."

Friend: "Let me guess, a bunch of erotica? Heh heh, just kidding."

Me: "Uh...yes. That's ...pretty much all I've been writing."

Friend: "HAHAHA, like what, a bunch of cartoon characters having explicit sex?"

Me: "They're from video games."

Cue painfully protracted silence, refilling of drinks, etc.

In a related story, I had a minor surgery recently that involved local anesthetic and some combination of IV drugs and gas that the anesthesiologist called "joy juice."  It induces temporary anterograde amnesia, so all I remember is rambling to one of the surgeon's assistants about my problems with the Nolan movies' characterization of Batman just before the surgery, and afterward asking if they wanted to see if I could "Hulk out" and tear free of the straps holding my legs down.

They said they did not. 

I' m afraid to even consider what I might have been saying during the surgery. Going on the above, it was probably related to DC characters in some way.

I've actually been writing and drawing fairly regularly lately, but all for anon memes. If you don't like anonymity being spoiled, I would suggest not looking under this cut. :) Naughty stuff (and there is actually a fair amount now) will be under a locked post.  


Art for Dragon Age, Fallout (lotsa pics)Collapse )

 I did a little thing a while back where I redrew some friends' facebook portraits as Batman characters. I hadn't drawn anything in months, so they are rough, but I think they came out pretty cute. 

Two Face = my brother
Batgirl = my sis in law
Batman and Catwoman = my buddy and his girlfriend

Na na na na na na na na FACE BOOOOK!Collapse )
