I'm in school as I'm writing this and I figured I'd update a little about what's going on in my life as of right now.
Obviously I'm just doing the leisurely school thing so that takes up a portion of my schedule. I'm pretty booked on commissions for the next few weeks on top of producing content every week for my Bliss League shop. My shop has really taken off and I'm so excited about it! It encourages me to continue producing consistently each week for those who eagerly await a post. I really wish eJunkie had a method for picking and choosing in terms of bundles but that gets to be a hassle bundling things specifically mostly because some people might have already purchased something or another included in the bundle but would want something they didn't have a chance to purchase for much cheaper within said bundle. Regardless, I'm thinking of making a themed bundle to come along with fresh new content as I'm submitting them.
I just purchased myself a copy of Manga Studio 5 (or Clip Art Tool whatever-whatever it's called alternatively if you download a digital copy... I don't get why that is, but okay). I have to say, I'm liking the program so far. I'm having a bit of a struggle trying to hot key things as I have with SAI so all of my previous habits from SAI are transferring over to MS5 and it makes my work progress significantly slower as I fumble through things. I mean, I didn't expect to use MS5 and work just as efficiently; it definitely takes some getting used to. In fact, my first piece from MS5 will be my Bliss League Caitlyn issue that I'm currently working on for this week. I'm very pleased with how smooth and clean the lines are so I'm excited to get it finished and show it off a bit, even if it will be a censored covered art in the shop.
Halloween is coming up and I'm planning all these pre-Halloween activities for my son. I've personally never pumpkin carved before so that will be an experience. I just hate how I have to mentally prepare myself for how messy it's going to be. I've also gone ahead and bought him his costume. Be prepared to see some cute train engineer pictures of my piggle. YOU GUYS WILL NOT COMPLAIN AND LIKE IT SO VERY MUCH BECAUSE TODDLER IN A COSTUME.
I also got some more ink. Which is awesome. My last big tattoo will be on my right bicep and it will be Venom from the Spiderman series. He's my absolute favorite villain of the Marvel universe. And he's adorable. Proceeding that Venom tattoo will be lesser tattoos that won't take more than an hour to do. The skull tattoo I just got around my shoulder and collarbone hurt like a bitch and it took a little over 2.5 hours to do. Never again. Can't wait to be done with the big ink. Any tattoo that takes more than an hour and a half to do is considered a 'session', I think. But no, really. Can't wait to be done with tattoo sessions.
The end of the year is such an expensive time for me. My brother and mother's birthdays fall a week apart from each other. Then it's my son's 3rd birthday the beginning of December. Also I want to get an anniversary present for my kuya/Tiffany's marriage-to-each-other. Then there's Christmas. Oh god, Christmas. PRESENTS FOR EVERYONE. So I definitely have to hustle with some stuff on top of paying my own bills. The after-holiday calm is the best though. Then tax return season. Good thing my best friend is an accountant.
