Happy New Year

Tue Dec 30, 2014, 11:42 AM


Obligatory "I haven't changed my journal in a really freaking long time so here goes" journal.

Sooooo much love to the very generous :iconmaryryanbogard: who continues to give me lovely premium memberships!! I love pretty journals! I love polls about anime figures! I love getting to see who visits my page every now and then and who returns consistently to creep on me! (I know who you are....heh heh...)

Today I was kinda stupid. I picked a fight.

It wasn't really a fight....but I picked an argument that I knew I wasn't going to win, and I did it anyway. This was a battle I shouldn't have picked...but I did anyway.
It's one thing if someone is yelling nonsense at you. You let them yell until they walk away, or you just walk away. But it's another thing to hunt for nonsense and try to fix it.

I'll draw a metaphor. I saw a picture of a pear. I identified with that pear. But I felt something was wrong with that pear. I looked and saw that this highly realistic pear was called "Cubism." I decided to try and inform the person that they had not drawn Cubism, they had drawn Realism, and please don't call a realistic pear Cubism. My fault. Don't start dumb stuff. (There was no pear.) 

Looking back on the year, things got a little strange, but they all ended up working out. I decided to work and save money for grad school instead of going right away. And lo and behold, I got a great job that's a huge resume boost, and preparing me with exactly what I needed for grad school. I costume designed my first "non-university theatre show" and the director still made me want to pull my hair out, but I sewed and designed fantastic stuff, and I'm going to keep working for them until I go back to school. I got to be a panelist at Anime North's One Piece panel, and that was really seriously amazing, getting to speak as a representative for a series that I love so much.

But a lot went wrong in 2014, which makes it feel unfair that I had a pretty good year when so much went wrong elsewhere.  A lot made me angry. We lost people. We lost planes. We lost rights. It makes you feel really helpless. I went to the gym this morning, and all the televisions were on the news, and I could barely watch. It makes you angry and frustrated. The one television that wasn't on the news was on a documentary about varying religious interpretations of Hell. Made me feel super comfortable.

It wasn't a perfect year for me either. I lost two of my professors. One at graduation. I didn't walk. The other was my voice teacher. He changed my voice forever. I never got to see him again after I left school, though I had wanted to.

I will try to finish my comic in the new year. I am working on the last part of my fanfiction series posted over on fanfiction.net, and I want to start project of more realistic portraits. I also and finalizing my Etsy account, so when that's done you all can buy fancy felty handmade stuff from me.

Happy New Year. Here's to a better 2015. 

Oh, and if anyone is wondering where my pony drawings went, they are gone. They were for a good friend, and he wanted to enter them in a contest. They had to have a dA link to go in this contest. I didn't win the contest. I deleted the ponies. There will probably be no more ponies in my gallery unless you throw cold hard cash at me. Sorry Lance. :p

All the world's a stage, so you better be wearing your costume.

Hi Scarlet, how you been?
I was wondering if you can help me out. I want to attempt at making a short comic, but not sure how to go about it. Would you happen to have any pointers? I do have a script, but it's still under work cause I feel it's too long.

My comics are pretty bad haha.... :p There are better people to ask!

I dedicated a whole sketchbook to my comic, and I sketched out each scene. Then I scanned the pages, and drew over the sketches with my tablet. Planning out where things went on paper before doing it on the computer helped a lot. I also wrote out the script just like a theatre script, and planned my panels/panel layout that way. But stuff always goes wrong and has to get moved around. What is the comic about?

Well I found your comics fun and cute. ^w^

Well I want to make a comic that's a bit of a "Ask Chun-li" Kind of deal. But I didn't want to simply make it a question and answer kind of thing. Rather, I'd like to go on a more comical approach to answering the question.
Something to catch the readers interest, but give them a bit of info on the character as well. ^^

My first topic is "Why doesn't Chun-li wear a Police uniform when she fights?"

Because she's supposed to be an undercover cop? Wearing a uniform would blow her cover?

I know, the uniform department doesn't have any pants that can fit her!!

Hey, Scarlet. I noticed in your comics you said there wasn't a Canadian Street Fighter character. So I decided to make one. Her name is Olivia. Check it out if you have the chance.
