Rant about sketching and just...general whining/bitching. You all have been warned.

Cut because I guess I'm feeling depressed. And telling the complete honest truth about myself with no censor. Blerg. )

And...damn that was depressing. In other news, getting sick. Hopefully not enough to make me call off in the next few days.. I want another year of perfect attendance at work, even though I get yelled at for it. The sick time doesn't roll over/get added in anywhere, but I have this thing called a guilty conscious and I just can't bring myself to call off. Especially just knowing that everyone would be screwed over.

Peace,

sleep. need sleep. psycho

So, this presumtious bastard decides to make flash games. All is well and good. He wants to sell said flash games. Again, all well and good and captialism and all that jazz. He apparently can't do his own artwork for it. Okay, so he decides to hire some artists to help him out. Everybody wins right? Artists are getting paid, the flash gamer is getting his game, and everybody's happy.

Except what? He's not paying the artists fairly? AND WRITES A FUCKING ARTICLE ON HOW TO HIRE AN ARTIST AND CHEAT THEM OUT OF PROFIT FOR SOMETHING THEY WORKED ON? Hold the fucking train here.

Anywho, read this fucking bullshit. Seriously, this makes me happy that I have no interest in selling my art and just give it away to people I care about as gifts rather than commissions. Less of a chance that I'll be burned by this kind of bullshit.

Original article: Hello. My name is Asshatery.

Stuff I'm peeved as hell about:

How to find an artist:

I recommend looking through art sites such as Deviantart for an artist which suits your taste, or any other site that has a decent art community such as Newgrounds. There’s a few reasons you want to find an artist this way. First of all, they’re cheaper. These guys aren’t used to making a lot of money for their work so they will be more appreciative of the chance even if they are being payed slightly less than what professionals are payed. Second of all, they’re better. The quality of art you can find through this method is pretty amazing, and the vast amount of artists guarantee you will find something that suits your tastes and needs. Unless you have a specific price you want to pay in mind, ask THEM what they are willing to charge for the project. This usually causes people to give offers that are lower than what you normally pay, and will make them happy.

Artist payment:

Make it clear to whomever you hire that they will not be payed until ALL the work is completed, unless it is completed by a predefined date, and unless it matches or exceeds expectations. Sometimes I have an issues getting all of these things, but if you give someone a job they’re expected to treat it as so even if they’re just a hobbyist. Paying prior to the completion of the project is a bad idea for several reasons. Only paying for the finished work encourages the artist to finish their job faster, if you pay up front the artist has no motivation to finish quickly. Similarly, if you pay up front the artist could disappear and you may never get what you payed for!

And a comment that the host of their article likes. Which really pisses me off: Under a cut, because this is getting long.
Fucker. )

Also:
His nick on sites like Newgrounds, Kongregate and Armor Games is xdragonx10. Spread the word about this article. Go tell him (politely) what is wrong about his business policy. Avoid his games if at all possible. Show him that what he's doing is coming back to bite him in the ass and not earning him one more cent.

I mean really WHAT THE FUCK MAN. Spreading the word because this whole thing is absolute bullshit.

darkdragonofthenever: (baku leer)
So...totally am supposed to be working on the living room, but I don't feel like it. :\ Damn tornado sirens went off at noon, so that's when I woke up since it's the monthly testing day. We have it the first Saturday of every month, and I haven't been able to fall back asleep. Did finally start that load of dishes though, so that's a start? At least I have something to show instead of marking more fanfiction to my list of read...

So at work, have a chick that is coming over from another store for two nights a week for a while, not sure why but whatever, not the first time this has happened. Anyway, she's a lot better than some of the other people they got for us, like that one girl we kept calling Judi II. This one actually knows service and grill!! That's a blessing all on its own. And she knows how to work and doesn't tell m e that if she stands still, customers won't come! I don't care how long she's with us, I can over see good things coming,. Now all we need is for my regular crew to get more hours and I'll be set!! I think sleep deprivation is making me more hopefully about this than I usually am. :3

Did another friending meme, and used a less creepy picture than I did for the other one...I guess no one appreciated bloody!Bakura... Oh well. I'll link it in a minute. I gotta thing if I have anything else to needlessly ramble about...

Uh...that's a big honking no unless you count the fact that I haven't been sketching lately. I think I'll do that later instead of taking a nap. XD Art > sleep yes?

~* MULTI-FANDOM FRIENDING MEME *~

Peace,

up up and away psycho
darkdragonofthenever: (what?!?)
So...got NegaTimmy cleaned up and ready for coloring. Still have to create a background for Bakura and work on Prussia...

Today is a day for art. Which means that minimal cleaning is going to end up getting done. And I still have to pack for my overnight stay in Ohio... As I open photoshop. XD

It seems that coloring would be easier in photoshop than in opencanvas. All the tutorials I find are for PS anyway and those that are for OC are for like...1.0 and I have 4.something or other. XD So I guess that I'll just stick to PS for coloring until I play with OC some more. XD

Has some music yes? )

Peace,

hotshit = [livejournal.com profile] artist

I swear, not renaming for a long time now. I love this name and I think I can identify more with it than hotshit, which sounded kinda presumptuous to me..... Although this name means that I actually do art more than on a whim. XD Oh well, it's my dream to become one, so why the hell not! Right? Right.

Also, my coworkers told me to GO THE FUCK FOR IT on the tablet, so I'll most likely drag my friend to the mall (since we're not really roommates anymore...long/complicated story on that I might do an entry about later to make me feel better about this....mess is the only way I can describe it...) during the 2 weeks that my roommates are gone. Because one told me to just stick with paper since fate apparently wants me to have nothing to do with tablets so just stick with pencil and paper and the other one...didn't ask her for the fear of the same response. XD

So...now I just have to wait to put my checks in the bank (since I didn't put last week's in and by Monday, I'll have two) and hopefully I can get it Monday or something. Depends on when they leave. :\ I just wish they knew so I would know if I'm walking home or not on Monday morning. It would be great to have some notice. I'll ask them again tomorrow if they know anything...because I doubt Chris will know and I won't see Crystal until she picks me up tomorrow...although her coherency will be questionable. I just plain need to get up earlier and ask her.

Eventually. Well, before Monday hopefully. Mostly since at 2pm, I'm in a coma and it's hard to wake my ass up.

Right now, also looking at a lot of pretty art of Bakura (all 3 of him) in the hopes of creating an actual moodtheme. And thus making his folder the largest I have for pictures. Maybe even the whole computer if we're just counting files...

And the cast for Hetalia is now pretty much all out in the open!! I'm very happy with this cast...I'm not going to lie. It's been a very long time since I've looked forward to something that Funimation was doing. I don't think I bought an anime from them since Black Blood Brothers and that was what? 3 years ago? Something like that. September can't come fast enough!

And I'm trying to poke Chris into looking for patterns for a Robin cosplay from Witch Hunter Robin. He was talking about it last night (since some of the afternoon shift thinks I need to wear make up. Bleh. Still don't see the point.) and got me excited for it again. He's been teasing me about doing it since...graduation. 5 years. AND HE KNOWS HOW BAD I WANNA COSPLAY HER!!! Bastard.

Anyway... MEEEEEEMEEEES AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA /shot

Music! )

Hetalia )



Long post is long. XD

doesn't wanna go to work tonight psycho

Not feeling too hot right now, so I'm not typing in the 'script' until I feel better/have the will to do it. All the pages are sketched out though, so enjoy them. Pretend they're like a doujin...without the pretty tones, pretty ink, backgrounds, and all that. =_=

Pages 14-30 )

Peace,

tired and feelin' under the weather psycho

I...I haven't scanned anything from my mango since page 13....I'm currently drawing page 25. . . . . . . SHITSHITSHITSHITSHIT. I need to scan today... and come up from 3 pages behind and maybe do some typing. There's no way I'll be able to do that on Wednesday with my working Tuesday night and then having a measely 5-6 hours to get my muse to pull something out of her ass and scan and type before it hits midnight and therefore, Thursday. . .

Why did June have to go by so fast? I still need to do concepts for Bethany's birthday gift... and of course she gave me a rather specific idea. Some kind of shield (gotta check the IM she gave me...I forgot the name of it) and a kick ass purple dragon. On big paper. THAT I STILL NEED TO BUY.

And then there's the fanart I promised to do...and all the fanfiction that's going through my head. Yes, my muse is inspired to write. And fanfiction of all things. The world is going to explode soon, I just know it.

ANYWAY, meme time XD

All I know is that to me, you look like you're lots of fun )

peace,

needs to STFU and draw psycho
darkdragonofthenever: (Ran and Sora)
I've been doing a lot of these lately. XD

The Pick-Up Line Meme!

Otherwise....still really behind in mango, but I do plan to get further! I just need to somehow extend this one part of my little story to make it to around 30, since I know where I want it to end, but in my head, it's taking less and less pages to get there. :\ Or more, depending on how my muse is feeling. :\

Off to draw some more. XD

Peace,

6-13 are here! I'm now only 3 pages behind instead of 6! After I post here and at the main comm, I'm going to bed as I have to be up early today. Will update the deviantart sometime this week/weekend. Hopefully.

pretty pictures with pretty art )

Peace,

pushing on psycho
darkdragonofthenever: (get drunk)
I only was able to type 4 pages tonight before work...we'll see how I'm feeling in the morning to see if the others get pretty words on the pretty pictures. XP

Although I'm not happy with pages 3-6, they're done. Sorta. They needed to be edited/redrawn badly. XP Posted page one again too...because I gotta retag and I don't have the time atm.

ARTZ )

That's about it...gotta run!

Peace,

gonna be late at this rate psycho
darkdragonofthenever: (lets play a dangerous game)
Yay bitching post! It's all lumped together because knowing me, I'll end up deviating from any topic that I put myself on...so read at your own risk. There may be brain breakage due to me not remembering my points...oh, and possible pity-partying. It's all stuff I've been storing up inside that needs to come out. Skip as needed. >_o

Work, Life, and....work )

In mango news, I SCANNED 9 PAGES YESTERDAY! Now all I need to do is type in the "script" and post them all. This year, I have this notebook thing that I've been keeping all the dialogue in instead of writing it all in the margins like I did last year, and it's been working out really well. Oh! And I downloaded some new fonts! I'm thinking of looking around for some more, just to be able to say that I have a better selection than before, and most likely will before I really start to type out all those words onto my pretty pictures!

Peace,

considering bed or looking at fonts psycho

Morning!

So...yeah...Senna's hand totally didn't come out the way I wanted it to after erasing it like, five times. I think the only problem with it right now is the thumb, but I'm too lazy to even try to fix it. And yes, her eyes are supposed to be disproportioned like that. It'll make sense when I actually get to that arc. half past never

To the actual art! )

Peace,

going to try to draw page 2 psycho

It's almost time for mango! It starts at midnight!!!! And...I still have no plot. Or characters or anything of the like. What I do have is a new sketchbook, a straight edge, lead, pencils, and my pens if I wanna ink anything. Still haven't found my battery charger for my camera...it's somewhere in that damn room of mine. I will find it! So, we'll see what my muse wants to do at midnight and that's what I'll be doing for the entire month. I will be posting the...uh...I don't want to call it a comic or manga...but the prelude to one here. And at the main community. And my creative journals. And my deviantart. :D

Ug. I feel so drained. -____- I hate holiday weekends. We're always busier than projected and we never have enough people. As in making as much as I do on a Friday night on a Sunday night with not as nearly as many people. Nor my good crew. :\ At least it's over and at least I don't have to suffer month end this month!! I do next month, but at least I'm 'crew' for that.

So, I'm not getting off overtime, but I'm not managing Wed nights either. Helen wanted to add people on and...well...we just don't have the people. So I get to be still on full time. But I'm just doing front counter for an hour, parfaits, burritos, and dishes. Which basically means EASY AS HELL NIGHTS. FUCK YEAH! I need at least one a week, or I really will start killing people. Because either my muse wants to write/draw a bloodbath or I really am getting as angry as I was when I first moved out. because damn was I angry...

Otherwise, there's just nothing much going on, except I'm hungry and need to scour the kitchen for food. :P

Peace

hungry hungry psycho

I'm officially announcing that I'm totally winging mango. Why? Because my muse crapped out on another idea in favor of nothing. So if it's nothing she wants, nothing she will get! Most likely not one of my better ideas, but unless she comes up with something amazing and awesome in the next three days, it's better than drawing something that I really don't feel like drawing. Maybe I should start writing again...maybe that will wake the bitch up. :\

Otherwise, work is work is work. I'm finally getting off full time which will help a lot, because I get really depressed when I'm on full time and I lose the will to really do anything. Plus, it seems my annual summer insomnia is back. Hopefully it'll only last a week or two and not an entire month again. Because the last time it did that, it sucked really bad.

I'm also on the hunt for any new bands/music. I'm downloading Kamelot right now, and might actually grab some of Hammerfall's songs, because they sound really cool too. Plus, I was laughing at some of their lyrics. Which is always a plus. So any suggestions would be amazing as I have no idea what I want to look for.

That's about all for this update. Short, sweet, and simple. :D

Peace,

should either get something to eat or try to go back to bed psycho

So, I have a plot now, finally. Yay for doodling and creating characters/worlds in my head! I have characters, I sorta have a world worked out, and I'm getting the page layout down.

Now all I need is a shitload of lead, buy a sketchbook, find my charger for my camera battery (because fuck trying to scan this again. I'm going to use my paper that's too big for my scanner again. :P) , and resting my muse up leading to June 1st.

Oh, and hands are fucking hard. I hate them.

Hopefully I can take a nap before work tonight, because I have a feeling that I'm gonna need all the rest I can get. :\

So...this weekend was the Downriver Ho-down. Where everyone pretends to be a hic and line dances wherever the hell they're holding it this year. Which means that we've been getting our ass handed to us by complete and utter dumb-fucks that I wouldn't mind shoving in the fryers and just watch the legs twitch. Because I swear, I get one more gag order and I'll be hanging someone's intestines as streamer in the lobby. Won't that just look lovely. honestly, I think the dripping blood down the walls/onto the floor would look really kick ass....psycho I am maybe yes?

Otherwise, still trying to coax my muse into working with me for mango. She won't let go of the idea of drawing Senna for an entire month and I'm...not so crazy about it honestly. But if June comes around and that's all I can get her to draw, I'll guess I'll do it for the sake of having something to draw for it. She has been wanting to write a little more than usual, which is good. Because my stories need to stop being stuck.

And...that's about all I can remember to rant about.

Peace,

going to try to lay back down psycho
