One evening while I was at my apartment, I decided to have a chat with my sister on Skype, listening to her trying to write some fiction. Some villainous character of hers was supposed to make a resurgence but it was failing spectacularly. He was made akin to the “Phoenix”, as he was supposed to make such a comeback having been defeated.

 

As you can see my mind sometimes goes off in different directions. I visualized this occurrence as such, and sent the doodle over. I don’t recall how exactly it was received, but the effort was noted, nonetheless.

Some more bagging of fan merchandise while scrounging eBay. This is the version of Ruri from the Prince of Darkness movie, and I really liked it because she had this mature, collected version of herself. But at the same time, she had that sliver of curiosity and longing for her friends that she had from the first anime.

 

I know about the character a bit, to say the least. She’ll definitely be heading off with the rest of my stuff in my final move to ETSU.

Thanks to a tad bit of surplus with my new job, I decided to hunt down some fan merchandise on my favorite anime besides Gundam, Martian Battleship Nadesico! I had found this silk-screen poster about a week ago, and was just surprised that someone in the US had it (most of the Nadesico stuff I see is overseas). Ruri-chan arrived in one piece and now sits on my bedroom wall, and belongs quite nicely to the decor!

 

I also was excited about this a bit, as this was my first silk screen poster at all. So go me, I guess.

Just pulled over in Greeneville for a moment while heading over to my new place, as my temperature gauge started to go up all of a sudden. I have no idea why; thankfully it started to settle back to normal once I got to driving over 55 mph  on 11-E. I’ll need to check the coolant level upon touchdown, but I have a feeling something else is going on here.

Random nonsense I did on my tablet one evening for Anna, someone I had met back from Animazement 2008. We were both Touhou fans at the time and I decided to indulge her over AIM one evening with my rendition of how Suika typically acted. Don’t think I was too far off.

I may have not played Mass Effect, but I have a pretty good idea on what it’s about. And honestly, I love the storyline. But you know what’s even more better? Tales of Symphonia + Mass Effect.

 

With me getting into the swing of hopefully doing graphic arts or such this year at ETSU, I’ve upped doing art a whole lot more, in hopes to get more practice. As such, I decided to do an ambitious project; not only create a crossover fanart piece, but freehand it completely instead of draw on paper then transfer.

 

I’m using Corel PhotoPaint for the time being, as that’s what I’ve always used for all my digital art since 2007. But you get a good view of my layout for this project. Best of luck for me getting somewhere with this.

I can’t believe I’m the only one in the family that sees these things, and decides to take a picture of them. But here you go. When we visited a meeting to get Internet in rural places outside of Atlanta, I found this in the tree next to the entrance door. Dad scolded me for taking the photo, but I knew that was the 2nd highlight of my trip to catch that nonsense. Someone noticed!
