The annual Nuzlocke forums Extravaganza has begun! The nomination ballot is now open, and it will only be open until 29th November, so you need to act fast! The Extravaganza has been organized really neatly, so as a member of the community I hope other members can help make this extravaganza worth the efforts of those who organize it. There are a lot of cool new comics that you can still check out and nominate. Remember that each nomination counts towards getting your favourites to the polls! I know at least some people here are also on the forums, so go, support your favourites! Nominations thread
It has been a while again, and a lot of things have happened. I thought I'd write a (non-whiny) journal about what's up now that things are kinda looking up and all.
First of all I really want to thank you all for your patience. Knowing that I have followers who are there at pretty much all times, even when I'm not so active, is amazing. What is also amazing is that some of you are even willing to help me at my time of need. Back when I really needed your help with my financial issues you were there and you helped me out. I'm not exaggerating when I say I wouldn't have made it without you, because that's the truth. So thank you, everyone. Thank you so much!
I am currently in the middle a super busy period. I have a huge and super intense course that will require a lot of time, but I only have about three weeks left before the deadline so I'm super stressed about it. I'm sure I will make it, but I want to give you guys some kind of heads up. I have been quite unproductive and silent for a while, and I will continue to do so for three more weeks. But after that I will be completely free from school, which means I will have time to work on a buttload of things I have been neglecting.
Something else that I probably haven't mentioned is that aside from having my dream apartment, which is so lovely, I'm still not over how lovely the house and the entire area is, I also have to cats now.
They used to be so small when I got them, and now they're almost like adults. They're so precious. They're both boys (not for long though) and their names are Speedy (the grey one that looks like a shocked hamster) and Saku (the striped one), and they're named after some Finnish sketch characters, which most likely doesn't make sense to most of you.
Today's the day I have officially graduated as a bachelor of science in architecture. It doesn't mean that my studies are done, by any means. I still have my masters degree in progress, and it's going to be intense to the end. But it feels good to be already this far. I really can't wait to be done with school.
Art's been kinda pushed in the back as of late. I'm trying to work on my commissions and other projects whenever I have time, but I hope you understand the lack of activity. I'm trying to work on the commissions as I work on my school project, but the process isn't all that fast. I just want to let you know that I haven't forgotten about any of you!
I'm also working on my next Nuzlocke update. Slowly, but I'm getting there. I can promise it'll be something interesting, and from this update on things will only get more intense! It would be great if I could update two more times this year, but well see if that's possible.
The current update progress is 12/26 pages.
Those of you who follow my art Tumblr may have noticed that I'm attempting a monthly drawing challenge called Huevember. It's something I thought would be a nice balancing project. I only do it when I have time and I don't spend immense amounts of time on the paintings. It's sort of a small, relaxing project.
You can see the works on my Huevember tag.
I will sell the original paintings after I'm done, and I will post them all on deviantART as one dump. (There's already some sort of queue for people who are interested in buying these so I'm not taking reservations yet.)
I will also do the Pokeddex challenge again this year. The randomized option was the most popular one on the poll I posted so that is the way I'll go this year! Expect unexpected Pokemon! I have also pretty much polished my challenge list, so just sit tight and look forward to it. Just like with the previous challenges I will post the individual paintings on my Tumblr under "pokeddex 2015" tag and the entire dump on deviantART when it's done. And I will, yet again, sell the originals, so if you're interested in purchasing original Pokemon paintings, keep an eye on what the Randomizer will throw at me!
That's it for now!
