Updates…

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

Art updates are going to be slow for a while, what with the Founder’s Beta and midterms and other life issues coming up right now.  I apologize in advance!

Fruit Dog Queen

Wanita

Meet Wanita, the queen of the fruit animals!  Her name is a nice pun I’m surprised I came up with.  ‘Wan’ is the Japanese sound of a dog barking.  Wan + Juanita.

Whoops, sorry guys

I tried to make a cat adoptable to go with the bunnies but I forgot to save the lineart…  I only got the chance to color one.

Cat Tuxedo

When I want to color one lineart a bunch of times I have to save a layered version first.  I thought I did, but then it turned out I saved it as a flat PNG instead.  Such a dumb, simple mistake!  Well, next time I draw cat lineart I’ll just have to try and improve!

Caramelick

Sunday, October 5th, 2008

I had my interview with GameStop, it went pretty well.  They said I’d get a call before the end of the month, but it is currently the 5th so that’s a kind of a long time…

Caramelick

Caramelick the Caramel Apple is the last of the living desserts.  I wanted to keep going with that theme but I ran out of ideas.  Maybe I’ll do a muffin to go with the cupcakes?  I’m open to ideas, but I’ve alread rejected a few desserts because it’s too hard to make them look like faces.

I like how he’s sticking out his tongue with his mouth wide open like he’s at the doctor’s.  Sorry Caramelick, it seems they stuck the tongue depressor in your head and not your mouth!

Cinnamon Roll

Happy Cinnamon

Cinnamon Roll!  You are too big, I had to resize your dumb butt to fit on the blog nice.  Now if people want to see you at full-size they have to click on you.  Is that what you want?  Clicks all over your frosting?  You are going to get everyone sticky, you troublemaker.

Look at him, sticking his tongue out.  He’s not even listening to me!

I have my job interview with Gamestop tomorrow and one with Claire’s on Monday.  Hmmmm if I get accepted for both how do I pick?  Or I might get accepted at neither.  Aaah, excitement!

Things are looking up!

I already have a job interview lined up, with Gamestop.  I met the manager already, he knows that if I got hired I’d be working two jobs, so there’s no confusion there.  This could really work out great!

 I’m happy enough that I drew a happy Mocha to be happy with me!

Happy Mocha

Yay!

Some Good News

Friday, October 3rd, 2008

I talked with my supervisor and manager at work and they said that if I find a new job I can sign the paperwork for dismissal the moment I get accepted, no two weeks notice necessary in this case.  BUT, there’s a better choice, since the library I work at closes at 5 I could get part-time work for after 5.  As long as I keep up with my schoolwork that’s not so bad a deal.  It would mean less spare time, but I have a lot of time to spare.  Maybe if I had a second job to deal with I wouldn’t procrastinate so much.

That might mean not having a lot of time to draw, but I would like to keep this blog updating regularly…  Luckily I have a bunch of old (crappy) designs that I could show if people are interested.

Old designs like this!  Meet Nilla Bean:

Nilla Bean

Only two of my living dessert designs have real names and Nilla is one of them.  If you can’t tell, she’s an ice cream sandwich.

In Soviet Russia, ice cream licks you!

Happy Soft Serve

Thanks for the encouragement in the comments, guys!  Today I have work…I really don’t want to give my two weeks notice, I really like it there, but it’s just not going to be enough money any more.

Oh man

So today it’s come to my family’s attention that we are in a financial bind.  This sucks pretty bad, and comes at around the same time that new rules at my workplace are making it pretty clear that I need a new job.

Ugh.

No new art yet…here’s another old one.

Raspberry Cupcake

Raspberry Cupcake is blowing a raspberry, though he might also have raspberry filling in him, I don’t know.
