I'm an aspiring animator from Virginia and Maryland, USA, who has a keen interest in cartoons and cats. I used a Bamboo Pen and Touch tablet to draw and PaintTool Sai and Photoshop CS2 for the art part. Send a note or comment my way if you have any questions!

:bulletgreen:What am I currently working on?:bulletyellow:

:bulletyellow:Up next?:bulletgreen:
To be perfectly honest I'm working on three things at once completely out of order.




It's official

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 20, 2015, 8:33 PM
Streetlight is cancelled.

I'll go in depth on that below. But right now, a few bits of info...

•I'm sort of reinventing my cast of characters. I'm pretty sure I'll have six characters coming out of this, but I'm not sure if they'll stay furry or not. More info to come.
•From a contest a long time ago, NeonStryker and CrystalFeza were supposed to have characters cameo from their respective 2nd and 1st placements. I haven't forgotten about that last prize, and while it looks like a cameo isn't happening, I'd like to negotiate something to make up for it. c; Either contact me or I'll contact you soon enough.
•For a while I don't plan on being serious with much. I'm having a good time relaxing (it IS summer vacation, after all) while working on commissions/art for others. In the future, though, I'm hoping to start practicing animation and get some sort of portfolio together. I won't be a minor forever.
•This next week I'll be volunteering at a Girl Scout day camp. Looking forward to it, but I'll be exhausted afterwards. So uh. Don't expect much from me.

Overall I'm trying to make my art more of who I am, and not just art for others. Not that I don't like drawing other peoples' characters. That's cool stuff. Problem is I need to prepare for the adult world and that all sucks. Seriously. I should probably learn to paint.


Alright, reasons for cancelling Streetlight.

Streetlight is a comic thought up between February and September of 2013, about a girl participating in a popular video game-like sport, but learning of the dark history behind it and saving the world in the process. The plan was for three books, with lots of pages in between, and to last for 5+ years.

Main problem was I started planning Streetlight at 14, before really looking into the process of making a graphic novel. There's a lot that goes into them. First you need a story worth reading, then practice formatting pages, script work, time and patience, a stable style... it's a lot of work. Something 14-year-old me didn't consider.

I'm 16 now. I know I have a lot of growing to do even still, and making a long term decision like that wasn't... a great idea. At all.

Around January 2014, stress was literally eating me alive. Personal stuff I'd rather not divulge in. Hosting a comic added to it.

All of that is mainly why it would take 2~ months to come out with a strip, and I didn't even get that far. It's tedious planning a strip and its story and pressuring myself to make it great.

To recap, these are the reasons:
•Comics are a lot of commitment
•Comics take a lot of work
•I was young and new to the world
•The story didn't have much depth

I'm hoping to do a comic in the future, but not for some time. I have ideas of planning out a story back from 7th grade, which is looking pretty promising. It's not something I'm jumping right into, though. Lots of world building and character designs, and also practice. None of the characters are white (although one is technically American, but is from Cambodia), and the only place somewhat close to what we have on earth is an apocalyptic London where time collapsed. It makes sense, trust me. I'm working with it.

The level of research I'm going to do is a whole lot more in depth than anything I've done before. I'm even planning on learning ASL to better understand the main character. Serious devotion to it.

Alright that's enough talking about that. The discontinuing Streetlight is why I haven't been drawing my own characters in a while, but I'm hoping to soon enough. Maybe one day I'll change my icon to a cartoony version of my face.

The future has lots of possibilities. I hope it includes me with financial stability.


Has anyone noticed how... weird I make the tag lines on my profile?

Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's going to burn your house down! With the lemons! I'm going to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"
