How is everyone?

Mon Jan 12, 2015, 6:20 AM
I feel like I've been neglecting everything here and that I haven't been honest to you enough.  Truth is, I go to this weird online school in which the teachers don't control exactly when we get something done, so sometimes you fall behind in your studies - which is what happened to me.  I've caught up now, so I've been putting more effort into my art and literature.  This is what I meant whenever I used to say I got "behind in my schoolwork".

Now on why I haven't posted much of that, is because most of my pictures are regarding stories I don't want to post on the internet yet - and may or may not be spoilerific.  So, I'm stalling on that, which is a problem because most all of my pictures are inspired by stories I've dedicated myself to.  (I have done a picture or two recently that don't involve my stories, so maybe I'll post those.) On a happier note, I am doing a big picture illustrating a short story that I am very happy with, so I hope that I get that done soon and post both together for you to see.  The illustration is taking a very long time, see!

On the topic of my work, I've also been working with my big sister to make a Wordpress site to host my work from and hopefully draw some income from before I graduate, though I'm not getting my hopes up yet. (I can dream, though, right?) This is probably where most of my professional works are going to be given their first release, because frankly, lit rarely gets as much attention as paintings and illustrations on dA, and I want that to be at the forefront of my portfolio.  The illustrations are a supplement.

With that said... How have you been doing?  Any plans?  I want to be back in the loop again.

I'm your local neighborhood grump, author, illustrator, and underage wizard.
I like speculative fiction, fantasy, mystery, military and war time fiction, with a pinch of comedy to lift the mood every now and again. I spend most of my time drawing, writing, pixelling, working on school, being a nerd, and writing stupid strings of words like the one you are reading right now.
I also like androids, cheese, books, words, being pensive, video games, computers, tea, snakes, mythology, and wandering aimlessly around the kitchen when I'm bored.
Here you'll find cheese-flavored (otherwise called "cheesy") old pictures and stories from a year ago. You'll want to focus on the ones from 2013 onward; those are much more mild in the cheese department and focus more on plot, logic, and are approved by mystery and suspense before being served. Believe me when I say that I've taken levels in cooking up stories; lots and lots of them.
Most of my stuff comes from random bursts of inspiration I like to call an "Inspiration Attack", but these usually take up the form of images containing pre-existing characters; only one picture ever contained a character I had never seen before. It's called "L O U D". Look at it sometime. It's cool and has lots of bright colors.
So yeah. Check out my stuff. It's cool stuff.

Eh, 'scuse me, but I can't seem to access any of the references for Kumiko Tsumi, and the hair references for Lorilei also seem to be missing.  Is there an error or did you move/remove them?  If so, can you give me the updated URLs or send them to me through

Yes, that's 150 points.
Do you have a deadline in mind? At least a rough date you'd like to have your pictures done? Note that I have a commission I'm already working on that I'm trying to get done within the week, so if you could work around that it'd be great.
