Anyway, first off, RL stuff:
Part of the reason for the lack of posts is I haven't had as much to report on recently as I'd like. Money has been a bit...err, tight, so have done very little traveling so far. -_- Thankfully, things are looking up a bit on that front as I've had several short temp jobs here and there and just started my fourth week at the same assignment. (Which may or may not end this week, it's already been extended once and I hope it does so again cause I reeeally like this job. Good money, great location, as in a 12 min walk from my apartment, and the co-workers are super nice! Especially my supervisor, who's very concerned I'm getting enough breaks. He keeps catching me doodling and is like "oh, sorry, don't want to interrupt. Good to see you are taking breaks! Don't want you to burn out!" Nicest. Boss. Ever!) In terms of travel, do have Ri-chan and her husband coming in a little under a month \o/, so should be getting out more with them. For now saving up so I can do just that. ^^ So excited!!
Otherwise, I continue to enjoy Sydney (and living right downtown is ever so convenient! Yay for being able to walk everywhere ^_^), the weather remains incredibly pleasant and mild (winter you say? Suuuuuureee...) and have met a great bunch of fangirls here \o/!
Also have recently started a sorta travel log photo blog thing on Tumblr. Posting every few days, my favorites of my travel pics, from all different periods. It's just a small thing so far...but one I actually HAVE been managing to update regularly, so...um...go me? *shifty eyes*
In fan related stuff:
Um...Loki still owns my soul. OOPS! Why, why must I fall for villains?! After Lex, I should know better!! *headdesk* And this is leading me to read comics, which...I DO know better! That can only lead to suffering, and horrible things happening go chars I love. That's just what comics DO! I know this! Which is why I've avoided them for sooo many years. Comic tie-ins/comic adjacent stuff like the cartoons and movies, I'm totally on board! But the actual comics? Steered clear! Did this stop me from getting faaaaar too invested in Journey into Mytery? No. Is it going to break my heart into little itty bitty pieces? Almost certainly! *there is just not enough headdesking in the world*
But, if nothing else, at least all the fanning has been very productive! Which brings me to...
Because...um...woobie villains? I err...may have a type! OOPS! ^__-
Done as an illustration for neechan's wonderful, epically long fic, No Such Liberty. Sooo love this fic!
Nother illustration for the above mentioned fic. Though...err..this scene hasn't actually been posted yet. And err...probably won't actually be for a while yet. Um, I mentioned it was LONG, righg? ^__- Cause, um... yeah...Gloriously so, but the 50k or so posted...not...exactly...half-way yet. Whee! ^^ Not really happy with how this pic came out, but it was done really fast. I was practicing speed drawing...clearly not my specialty. OOPS! :-p
llustration for Takadainmate’s wonderful fic Over Spring, set after Journey into Mystery 641.
Second in our ongoing deal: she writes bb!Loki and I draw or vice versa. I’m quite enjoying this bargain as there can just never be enough adorable kid!Loki fic! \o/
I may have a bit of a weakness for Loki with his kids. Okay, a HUGE weakness. And, really, it may be for all Supervillains with their children cause I always had a major thing for Lex being cute with Kon when I was in SV, hmmm…^__-
Also, it kind of worries me that I no longer need reference to draw Loki's outfit. This was done pretty much entirely from memory. Um...err...*cough* *shifty eyes* ^___-
I'm actually doing a whole series of chibi drawings now involving Loki's kids with the Avengers cause um...I've found I can't stop drawing them. Mainly at work. OOPS. Have tons sketched but only two colored so far, will probably just do a full post when I have them all finished, though the first two can be found here.
And in and among all this art, I'm also working on an Avengers music vid (that Loki keeps sneaking into cause, well, he's LOKI! :-p)
...err...yeah, when fandom hits, it hits HARD! But, well, it's been over three years since last I hardcore fanned, so I'm pretty much happily going with the flow at this point, milking it for all it's worth! ^^
As always, C & C much appreciated. Or really, anything you wanna say, I MISS THE LJ CROWD!! Tumblr is fun, but it's just not the same! *en masse flist smish*
