RAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. I've been on and around, but I was away from home and my laptop contracted a trojan (but the ad banner was so enticing!). I got the infection taken care of but there was evidence that the only way to be sure everything was safe was to... restore it to the factory image for the 3rd time. In the process I apparently lost two finished versions of commissions, so I get to do those again.

Okay! Need to finish these off, scruitinize them a bit on a monitor that isn't notorious for understating saturation, and asking the client for any changes. Then on to Breakaway. Though now it's a shower and accounting homework. Whee.

Yesterday was a clean and flat day.

My boyfriend was watching and clearly thought it was the most boring thing he'd ever seen. Idk, clean and flat is so cathartic :P

Like this color scheme more so will probably switch the upper one to it.

Well part of my master plan is done. The other part involves seeing if I can prepare some pages of Breakaway between now and... now. Hmm. I have a ton of half finished stuff that I just moved to my thumb drive to keep me occupied during vacation :3

Ughlsegndfjhk so I had all these great plans for yesterday and woke up at 8am with an upset stomach. After two hours of lying in bed and feeling awful off and on, I told it to make up it's damned mind. At which point I had a good ol' puke fest. So this list of things that neeeeeeeeded to be done didn't. I'm starting to feel like a jerk because people are waiting on me and THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING WRONG that requires all my attention :/

I think my goal at this point is to gather together as much cleaned lineart together as I can over the next week, so I can just do a color marathon over thansgiving (when I won't have a scanner handy).

I was handed profiles with three ages listed and told to choose one. NEVER.

The artist half of me doesn't really understand (or perhaps care about) when the grad student half of me should go to bed.

This was a sketch that I did to figure out facial structure for a commission, and doesn't really fit the character's personality at all. But I like it enough I want to finish it, and the client has been so patient with me anyway that doing an extra on the side is probably the least I can do.

Stuff. Stuff Stuff stuff.

Stuff that does not in fact look like my accounting homework.

Which I'm actually quite ok with.

Pluggin along. I've been doing stuff but haven't really been documenting it because this weekend sucked. Mind has been all over the place.

Well idk. I did work yesterday, saved the files, brushed my teeth, and came back to my computer going HI I REBOOTED FOR YOU. It's claiming to be a driver error, though I swear this thing has been presenting more as a memory error.

So whatever, let's do the works. I update the video drivers, uninstalled WoW,and left it to defrag/cleanup while I'm at work. I suspect this weekend I'll be getting on my hands and knees and cleaning all the dust out of it to see if it's happier. LIVE DAMN YOUUU.

But hey stuff was done so there.

Did my 'once over' which with crashing was more a 'fourteenth times over' to clean, and had a few last minute changes (fuuuuu hands). But it is done! Yay! Sort of breaks my rule of getting stuff done in a reasonable time though. I have a short attention span so this was getting to the point I was annoying :(

An Idea that needs more polish. Idea with capital I! Srs.

And I discovered that bamboo + laptop monitor is not conducive to small details, so I had to mash at them last night when I got home instead. I think I can get this done and prepare the next page for flatting/color tomorrow.

I'm sort of blah about how these are working out. I guess they're ok but... idk I think my mindset here isn't right. Learning experience learning experience cry cry. I like artsy things, not talking heads :(

I'm not exactly sure what's up with my desktop but it's being incredibly fussy. It's had some trouble with games, but was offended that I asked it to run photoshop last night. No idea what the problem could be. It's sitting in time out today, hopefully it just needs a good sit to think about what it's done ;)

What it mostly amounted to was I couldn't finish my final pass on this last night, to correct some colors and clean up nonsense. Just as well I suppose, I haven't gotten a response from the client yet as to whether or not something needs to be changed (because it takes me 4 weeks to answer an email, but I demand responses NOW NOW NOW lol).

And then this is... prepared. Idk, coloring always feels like the fast part.
