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 wrote a short story about a kindly old baker murdering a guy.

Read it here.

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!

Meant to post this sooner, but whatevs.

I finished my latest short story the other day, God's Most Precious Children. Which I just realized has a totally misleading title, as there is no mention of God (hell, the PB world doesn't even have any monotheistic religions) and there's only one child in it. Yeah, see, I tend to do this thing were I'll come up with a really good title while working on a story, and it'll only be sort of related to the story, so I'll just stick it on there. You can actually tell the stories that I had no fucking idea what to call, because they'll have super simple titles that are directly related to the story (as with Suzanna and The Lamplighter). Buuut then again, there are some titles that do work with the story, like Elephant Bones.

WOW that was quite the tangent. Anyways. This latest story is about Jack and Eain, who are STEAMPUNK COWBOYS, YEEEEAH. I really like these two. They're fun to write. And, like always, the story is based on classic lit/fairytale/fable. Try to guuuuesss. This one is actually fairly obvious, I think.

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.

I wrote a new short story for the Paper Bird world! :D However, it's pretty long, so I'm not going to post it on LJ. So here's a link to the properly-formatted DA version. You also get a small teaser.

Elephant Bones

This short is the story of two pianists, who, other then playing the piano, have nothing in common. Edgar Benoit is a rich older man, and Galwyn Stone is a poor young man who became famous by accident. After a friend of Benoit's hears Stone at a concert, he convinces his friend to set up a meeting with the young man. Benoit finds the young man to be a strange, ugly, poor-tempered person, yet is also intrigued by him. He continues meeting with the boy, becoming his friend. Things seem to be going well, except that Edgar ignores his friend's depression and sorrow...

Oh, and I've been watching the anime series Gankutsuou recently, and am loving it. I'll give a better review later, but for now I'll just say that its The Count of Monte Cristo in space. On ACID.

So I wrote another short story set in the same world as my other two. This one takes the focus off of Sam, and places it on a young girl named Suzanna, and Borys Frankov. You can read it here on DeviantArt (recommended, as it has the right formatting) or under the cut.
'Suzanna' )

Sooo I wrote another part of Paper Bird. Sort of. More or less. Anyways. You can read it on my SheezyArt, or in the cut below. Lemme know what you guys think of it! And if you have any idea about what literature figures the characters are based on, go ahead and say so! I'm keen to know if they're really obvious, or more difficult to get.

The Lamp Lighter )

Everyone needs more dapper today. Sooo go look at the thing that I killed my wrists and eyesight on today: Dapper Sam!

Um... that's it, really. Not much to say, other then Phoenix Wright is a lot of fun to play. ...I'm gonna go sleep now.

So, hey, that writing contest I entered Paper Bird in? I won first place. :B I feel a small, awesome sense of accomplishment.

All my college apps are in except one, which is pretty great. Still need to send some scholarship stuff in. And I'm going to a parade Saturday night with some close friends, so that'll be fun.

I've been working on writing a steampunk short story on and off for four months. It's the story of a man of science who wants to fly, and his assistant, in a world loosely based on Victorian England. Today, I finally finished. I'm going to enter it into a writing contest going on at my school, and possibly write some more about the people who are in it/the world its in. Here, read!
Paper Bird )

Also, same offer goes as my DA and Sheezy pages: Samuel Flescher and Calil Hyaer are loosely based on famous literary characters. If you can correctly guess who they're based off of, I'll draw you somethin' purdy.
