Birds!

Today was pretty dang eventful thanks to the puppies (monster and hunter), Matt and I have 2 pitbulls that will be turning 3 in October. Yes, we still call them puppies, we raised them since they were 4 weeks old since their mother stopped feeding them so we took over.

Anyways I am standing at the kitchen sink doing the dishes while Matt is cooking dinner. Here I am watching the pups outside I see them start sniffing in one spot. All of a sudden, I see a bird try to fly and the pups start going after it. I drop everything to run outside to save it and you here the parents of the baby bird yelling and I am yelling at the dogs to stop and get to the porch. Of course our cat, Trouble gets out so she doesn't see it thank goodness and Matt goes to see if the baby is ok. Matt gets near and it trys to fly and it landed near our porch steps and of course Trouble sees it that time and I had to catch her before she got the baby. So in other words the baby was fine at least we think so because we went back in so the parents can get to it. We are not sure what happened to it, we went back out 20 mins later to check on it and we couldn't find it. I sure hope it made it back to its parents =(

In other news, in just a few minutes at midnight it will be officially 10 days till the launch of the comic. I am so excited! After the launch I will beable to get back to doing paintings with my new medium =D It is officially crunch time now.

Storms!

Sitting here in my stuido working on the comic looking out the side window, it is sunny as can be then look to the front window and the storm is rolling in =D That is my favorite thing, seeing the darkness of the storm rolling in and it is still sort of sunny.

Speaking of working in my studio I'm working on the comic of the unluckables which there is only 14 days left till the comic launches on Unluckables.com. I decided to rename the comic to Unluckables instead of Little Bit Crepie it just fits the comic better. I mean it is still the same concept as the old comics but the brand is different so to speak. There will be lots of creepy things just like the old comics but it will also have the unluckyness of the unluckables lol.

And here comes the rain =D storms make me work so much better since my creatures are creepy but in a cute way. Well back to drawing =D

30 Days and Counting

It's officially 30 days til the launch of Little Bit Creepie comic and still no where close. Matter of fact since the last time I wrote about the comic, I have yet to cross anything off. I swear I am such a procrastinator =/ Starting today though I am going full force on the comic and on my art so you guys will see new creations very soon =D

Other news we got our new refrigerator today, you know your an adult when you get excited getting new furniture and appliances =P Our old one kept freezing our food what a waste it was, it was here when we moved in the rental house. The new one might stay here since we really don't want to move to much cross country when we move to tybee island next year, I don't know we will see what is going on.

New Art Medium!

For the longest time since I started drawing my orignals (drawings with pencils) I wanted to up my orignals. I wanted something more, don't get me wrong I know a ton of artist that sells their orignal drawings and that is fine. However for me again, I wanted something different I just couldn't get into just the pencil drawings. So I went searching for something that I can travel with and would be a lot easier to do orignals in hotel rooms when I do cons. I started with acrylics back in 2009 and will stick with that but for now I found my new medium and it is pen and inks.

I have been practicing with them for a few days now and I am loving the results  this is exactly what I was looking for. I am thinking sometime next week I can start adding the originals to ebay for auctions, we will see how it goes. I want to be comfortable drawing with them before I do add them to ebay. Of course I will create the prints in photoshop like usual and offer the prints up once I get a new printer or getting the old one fixed.

With my eyes the way they are I have to do the drawing/painting in the day and during the night I can work on my tablet, so it works out great for me. Do originals during the day and prints and comics during the night =D

Plunging Away!

Eeeeekkkkk! 36 days til the new comics for Little Bit Creepie starts and I still have tons of work to do.

Lets see I still have to create the character sheets of the 4 main characters Trouble, Demon, Diable and Elena. It's still the same cast minus Poe and Raven (they come in later) I think not sure if I am going to add them or not. Anyways character sheets are basically drawings of the main characters front view, side view, 3/4 view and the back view of what they will look like. Again all the characters are going to basically stay the same but since my drawing abilities has improved tremendously I need to recreate them. Of course they will look different but trying to keep them the same, we will see how that goes =D

Right now I have just Troubles outline for the front view almost finished, I have tons of work to still do on that front. Elena is not showing up for awhile so I can work on her in a couple of weeks at least so it is just the 3 unluckables I need to work on so far.

Luckily I have over 30 comics written so far, that is a tremendous amount of work done at least. Still have to draw them but at least they are written. I want to have a huge buffer before the comic launches so I don't have to worry about anything. That is one thing I wished someone told me when I first started the comcics is to have a huge buffer so that way if something happens your not in a bind. Plus with a buffer I can still work on my art and commissions stuff like that.

Also I still need to create a logo and do a website layout that actually is functinal comparing to all my other previous layouts for Little Bit Creepie. The older layouts were less stellar and all it had was the comics, no character bios, no nothing so very plan jane.

Thats about it, it might sound like there isn't alot to do but being one person and creating all this in 36 days is not a lot to do it all in.

Other news my f@cking printer is broken it won't print black ink and of course it breaks after the warrenty is done. So I can't offer prints at the time being, I guess that is a blessing in disguise I guess. This way I can create more paintings and once I get another one or get this one fixed I will have more to offer.

I know this is a very boring entry but at least I am working on my art =D

Been Awhile!

It's been over 2 months since I last posted on here and on my art front stuff, a lot has happened but ready to get back to focusing on my art.

First off, begining of April my husband Matty had a stroke at the age of 36, he had a stroke. Not going into to much details but he is on the mend and looking to have a full recovery =D

That is the really the main reason why I have be absent from the art front but like I said I am back and actually starting back up my comic.

Comic you say, oh yes, my Little Bit Creepie web comic series is coming back that follows my creatures the Unluckables and their human girl Elena. I started this comic back in 2010 but went on hiatus due to health issues and some other stuff in 2014.

My site Little Bit Creepie is up with a temp layout but this weekend I am hoping to have all the old comics up so everyone can read them till the new comics are added. I will let everyone know when the old comics are up.

I want to do a lot of things with my creatures my main goal is to have them go main stream like the minions and rabbids. So I better get my butt in gear and get to work.
