Pinned toot

With everything that's been happening, I wanted to have this strip & the next one posted like a month ago but Yeah!

Yeah...

Who knew that being in a constant state of worry while doomscrolling would absolutely tank my desire to work on a story bit featuring my personification of Death? -.-

I do want to finish this but it's going to take time. Slow & steady, I will get to the end of it...

Alrighty! I got Winamp up w/ more podcasts to work to. Twitch should be up & running by now.

The stage is set! Can I finish this pic before things go wrong? Tune In to Find Out! = D

Going to attempt a stream & see if I can't get the lineart for the 'Saltwater Girlfriend' pic done. Going to work on the diver girl.

Drop by & kill some time! = )

Of course, I forget the hashtags.

I'm out of practice, folks. -.-

Next up... the "Surprise" Gift.

My very close friend & ex has been having a time w/ the human malware situation. She's got health issues so she's really stuck inside & going a bit stir crazy. I offered to draw a pic as a birthday gift. An old raccoon character named Sin who she was the base for & is the "owner" of. = )

This is where I tried the digital sketch/traditional lines/digital inks process.

First up... the project!

The plan: To speed up the process, I'm doing the most basic of basics digitally, printing those out to finish the sketch on paper & finishing it Back on the computer again.

I fixed the anatomy that was bugging me before w/ digital models. Arms & legs & limbs in perspective will be the death of me. o.@

Real Talk... things have been tough. Hard to focus when things are, well *Gestures at the World*.

I'm doing my best plugging away at stuff. I finally got the urge to draw on the strip again & make some headway. With a little luck, I can put a dent on both things - the projects I started & the comic - w/out the burnout I've been avoiding.

I also have a new pic I'm going to pick back up later in the week. A birthday gift for a very good friend who said the best worst thing an artist can here when offering to draw someone something: Surprise Me.

It's a bit buried but I know I've got a pic or two to show some progress.

After far too long, I'm back w/ something to post (and not just lurking around digging other folks' work)! = D

Let's see... I did a couple of those Six Fanarts dealies but I don't have the nice breakouts on my phone so I'll drop those later. What I Do have is a new old project I've made some solid headway on. I took another swing at last year's MerMay pic again.

Ha HA! I forgot the tags. = P

Too late now! I want to show off the WiP shots. This took me a bit but not because I was having trouble. It was more me not spending time doing my due diligence & putting in the time.

I inked the Altered Beast pic from last year's Drawlloween. This came out exactly how I was hoping it would. = )

Seeing as it's April Fool's & I'm in the middle of a kinda' dramatic story bit, here are some of my fave classic Biff strips from past April Fool's days.
> No.118: Off-Sides: #12: A Quick Note - sillyvamp.com/?strip_id=117
> No.175: Peanuts - sillyvamp.com/?strip_id=174
> No.344: Off-Sides: #33: My Silly Vampire - sillyvamp.com/?strip_id=343

I swear, these past few strips have taken forever to finish. Thankfully, I've been sucked into the latest Animal Crossing game so I can at least zone out on that when my will to draw is sapped.

Although I think the game knows what I've been doing as it dropped a "Cartoonist's Set" item on me.

It knows I'm slacking off. It knows... o.O

BONUS: Some other digital practice I got in recently.

After some searching, I found a bit of fanart I had started last year of an online buddy's comic character, Parcel. It was buried Pretty deep on an old HDD. Thankfully, it was still saved from the last time I worked on it.

Unlike the last piece, this is completely digital. Kinda' sorta' started it on my phone & put more work on it on my Tablet PC thingie. = )

Some work from last night.

Tried to work on the next strip but wasn't feeling it. Tried to stream some artwork but my 'Net connection wasn't feeling it. So I got some offline digital practice in on the Altered Beast pic from last year. = )

IG Linkage: instagram.com/p/B907mztnjsR/

Ha HA! The stream died. I'm quitting that plan & I'll try for tomorrow possibly.

It's been an all day type of thing. Even the cable to our house has been on the fritz which has made for some funny shows & commercials but not great for online work. -.-

Okay! We're back... but for how long?

Long enough to hopefully kill some time. o.o
