Sooooo... I went and started a Tumblr. It can be found over here.

I've been thinking about starting on for a while, because a) I keep getting linking to various tumblrs and finding myself wasting away hours reading them, and b) my LJ was never really much of a sketch blog to begin with, so I'm shuffling my artsy blogging things over to tumblr. I think the style there works a bit better for sketch blogs, and I dig the queue function.

So yeah. I'll probably do art posts over here still, but from now on I'll be posting art on tumblr as I finish it instead of hording it while trying to decide if I have even sketches to do an art post on LJ.

I think it's about time for another art post.

Some random sketches, some Batman Beyond fanart.
Too bad the fandom hardly exists )

Also, I've started a blog to talk about just my baking, and how to bake on a college student's budget. Check it out here!

Back in NM for school, ugh. Actually, I came back last night, because this morning I had to take a Teaching Basic Skills test. Which is a standardized test would-be teachers have to take before becoming accepted in the College of Education of most schools in NM. I think I did fine on it, really. Reading comprehension/grammar portion was incredibly easy, and the math part was actually not that bad. Get my scores back in February, so I'm eagerly waiting for that.

I have some arts today! Lots of it, actually. I don't know what it was, but I was drawing a lot over the break.

Dinosaurs, conquistadors, old OCs, and fan stuffs )

School starts Tuesday. Wheeeee

Done with my finals! I head back home tomorrow. It's weird, though... it really doesn't feel like it should be winter break already. Maybe it's because the weather here has been 65 degrees F and sunny since October. It just... doesn't feel like winter.

Also, art post time, yay! Some half naked ladies this time, so beware.

Also some fannish stuff and steampunk stuff )

I think I'm about due for another art post. I've been sketching quite a bit lately, which makes me happy. I think I may have a bit of an artist's block for the last few months, because I just couldn't come up with anything to draw just for the fun of it. Now I seem to be over it, though. So yay! Now, on to the art post.

Lots of boys this time, oddly enough )

My car is all fixed now, it was the steering pump that was having problems.

I talked to my adviser today, and I think I might do a minor in geology. Because... it sounds like it would be cool to do. Haven't decided yet, though.
amredthelector: (Default)
So, I sketched quite a bit in the past month. Guess today's an art day, then.

All sketches, mostly original stuff, one piece of fan art )

In other news, I've started reading Homestruck. That... comic? Can it really be called that? Is... strange. I just finished Act 2, and while it's interesting, it moves rather slowly. Still, the themes being presented and the way the story moves along, flipping between perspectives and time-lines, it really interesting.
amredthelector: (Spoink hat)
It's been a while since I've done an art post. Probably because it's been a while since I've done any art. But I did some in August, so here we go.

Various sketches and some finished art )
amredthelector: (ozzy bucket)
Heeeey, it's been a while since I've done an art post. Probably because I didn't do too much art in June. So, hey, let's do one of those.

Some sketches, mostly fan art sort of stuff )

That's about it. Not much to talk about lately. I'm going to one last showing of Rocky Horror tomorrow, though, which will be awesome.
amredthelector: (Default)
Heeey, I forgot to do my month art post last month! Well, not so much forgot, as just didn't have time to do it. So time to catch up.

So yeah. )

Working on finding a summer job, but it's proving to be tricky. Though, I may be able to get a volunteer job at my old high school, working on their summer-school for incoming freshman thing. That'd be pretty neat.

I drew a freaking TON of art this month, so it's time for monthly art post, whoo!

Mostly aliens and superheroes )

In other news, it's been confirmed that the Batman Beyond comic mini-series comes out in June. Aaaaaugh, it cannot happen fast enough!
amredthelector: (Default)
Monthly art dump time. Not too much for this past month. I've had the time to do art, just not much motivation.

Some sketches and some fan art )

My first class today was cancelled, and my first class tomorrow is cancelled. Nice.
amredthelector: (nom nom nom)
Hey, so remember last month when I said I'm going to do an art dump once a month? Well, I'm keeping to that. So, hey. Art dump time!

An alien, a time traveler, and a lot of unfinished sketches )

I'm really looking forward to Thanksgiving. Waaaant tuuurkey
amredthelector: (bet with yoda)
Exactly what the title says! I'm thinking of doing a sketch dump once a month from now on.

Aliens, Steampunk, fan art, and one very angry cat under the cut )

In other news, I finally finished the Zot! Black and White Collection by Scott McCloud. It had some problems, but I really liked it. The conflicting ideologies of strict science and loose imagination where interesting, without be contrived or a bit science versus magic/religion/whatever plot. I also really loved the focus on the mundane - I've always dug looking at normal people doing normal things in a epic setting, because it helps me relate to the characters. Sure, I wanted to know what Zot was up to, but I could relate to Jenny's yearning to be in the perfect alternate earth and trying to deal with an idealist in a world that doesn't live up to their standards. The art could be better, and sometimes the story is a bit scattered, but it's definitely a good read.

My scanner's fixed! My scanner's fixed! My scanner's fixed! :D

Or rather, I found a place online where I could download the drivers so it'll communicate with my laptop again.

Either way, it meant I got to scan some of the doodles I've done over the past month (have I really been in college that long!?)

Lotsa doodles! Warning, though: there is a tastefully censored nude sabrecat under the cut. )

What's this? An art update? And less then a month after the last one? Madness!

A dapper pokemon trainer, a non-stereotypical cat girl pirate, Katara, and a squid )

In other news, my iPod my finally be dying.

And I possibly have a slight case of pink eye. My right eye is really red, and a bit dry/itchy. Though, I haven't really had any other symptoms of pink eye, and while the redness was really bad last night, it's been going down and is barely noticeable now. But I'm trying not to touch it or rub it, just in case.
amredthelector: (nom nom nom)
Y'know this is supposed to be an art blog? I SURE DIDN'T. Or... I did and then sort of stopped posting anything. Prooobably because I don't really sketch as much as a used to. Buuut I've been doing some art recently so here's an art dump. Wheeee

I am the very model of a modern major general )

Aaand there we go.

So, the math teacher I mentioned in my last entry? Turns out he died a few days ago of ACS. I know I should feel bad - and I do understand what his family is going through - but... honestly, I'm not going to miss emotional breakdowns in class.

Anyways, today I have for you some sci-fi arts and a meme.

I liek robots )

And now for the meme, which I lifted from [ profile] dragonladycels

1) Go to and look at the name of the article. That is the name of your band.

1.5) Click 'Random Article' 15 more times. These are your track titles.

2) Next, go to and check the last four words of the very last quote. That is the name of your album.

3) Finally, head over to and look at the third image. Whatever it is, that will be your album cover.

4) Muck all three up with your favorite photo-editing program and post the result.

Band Name:
Dete train crash

Album name:
Sundial in the Shade

1. ISOFT Group plc
2. Karaga District
3. Radio Noise Source
4. New Hampshire Route 18
5. Gun Pod
6. Turbinellidae
7. Tagesschau, Germany
8. Devil on my Back
9. McGibbon and Ross
10. WPPN
11. Seekirch
12. Texas Company Annex
13. Phosphatidylcholine-dolichol O-acyltransferase
14. Durin’s Bane
15. Express Lanes

It was actually pretty fun. Sounds like it would be an off-the-wall techno band. (Oh, and the original photo can be found here)
