Sketchbook 2013 IS HERE!

WOO. *signupped* I got the email 15:20, signed up 18:30 XD

This year, I'm going to try and NOT be rubbish. The first year, I got disillusioned by the thin-ness of the paper. The second year, I forgot about it for a while and had to rush to get it finished and posted, which made me sad.

THIS YEAR, I'm going to have a tidy flat, space to work, and I'm going to try and spread the work out a bit better, and end up with something I'm 100% please with, not 75% pleased with. ^__^

I'm not sure what my theme is going to be, this year. Last year, they had specific themes, like "prehistoric" (mine) or "road trip" or "storybook", which you chose when you signed up. This year, the options are Travelogue, Memoir, Narrative, Atlas, Almanac, Chronicle, Sketchbook, Chapbook (a what? I had to look it up), Documentation, Photo Log. Mine is a "I'll choose my category later", right now...
Edit: I'm glad I looked up "chapbook" because I might end up doing that, haha. XD Not the poetry, as such, but the writing and ephemera and stuff.

...My "Mystery Project" stuff hasn't arrived yet though. I'm still wiggling about what colour and theme I'm going to get.

Drive-by post-work arting as I got the pictures off my camera at lunch... then realised I had no CD to take them home on.

Pictures under cut! )

Edit: ARGH why won't you put the border in like I tell you, LJ. I will have to edit this when I get home.

OK, so I've added in some spaces and made it slightly easier to read and tell which picture goes with which description. You probably CAN read the descriptions on the photographs themselves, but this was a quick'n'dirty Paint resize job and of course, the .jpg compression made it all almost illegible.

I would have done it last night, but it was SO COLD and the bus was late and I was tired from getting up so early, so I just... watched telly and fell asleep. XD

Some Blue cast! Yeah, people on my FL have prolly seen this doodle of Lara in another pic before, but anyway.

At last I can has a NIGHTSUN! One of the very first of the rabble to show up in my brain (I think he and Spotweld appeared together), but it's taken me almost a year to get a headshot of him on paper. HE HAS HEADPHONESS. I wanted to give him the looks of a helicopter pilot, hence the visor and headphones and stuff. I'm not sure if he's going to have one of those little microphones that sits alongside the mouth - it'd only be for effect anyway, because, well, robot. Snazzy little police helicopter.

And finally! OMG I MANAGED TO HALF-DRAW HIM BEFORE HE RAN OFF AND HID AMONG THE NEURONS. Lucy (channelling Lily Allen? *razz!*) and (half of) Deuce, who's looking a little long-suffering and why-is-she-climbing-on-me, but that's natural for him. BLESS. (I know, he's got the same sort of pose as Nightsun, but I no care. I just wanted to TRY and grab him on paper.)

Well chuffed with how this is turning out. :D Now I just need to get some high-res scans to rescue it when I fesh it up. (I already scanned all the "inbetween" stages. I hate it when I'm way proud of something then go mess it up.)

Azteque, mark 2!

Cliquez! Redoing it PROPERLY. Going to use it as a title, or something. Whee! I'm liking how little Suni is turning out, too. Working title = "Thunder Daughter", but that'll probably change as I get on, as it's a bit of a mouthful.

And yes, I’m still after ideas for plots.

Fanfare Please!

This post requires that I add something important before I start it, so this is me adding it...

...Because I've actually added a NEW, NEVER BEFORE SEEN chapter of Avocet. I'm nowhere near being over my writer's block, but eh, I'm getting there.

There. Now THAT's out of the way I can get on with the post itself.

First some arts! AGAIN trying to carry off a drawing I've already done half a dozen times in the past... )

And now for something completely different!

''Ride the Avocet'', chapter 18! )

We now return you to your scheduled broadcast.

Working doodle

I thought I'd post the working version of a doodle I'm working on at the moment, since I KNOW I'll get bored and fed up and decide it's too much work figuring out what goes where and text is better and... Anyway.

...I think I prefer him with skin on. *nodsnods*
