I did not intend to draw Nightcrawler tonight. In that I have failed.

Photoshop has been giving me troubles recently, but my buddy Russ helped me get it working again. I didn’t realize that 32bit color mode disabled like 80% of the options normally available. Oops.

Christina, Russ, and I are doing a joint design exercise. This is one of the characters I designed. The original outfit is letter “C” but I’ve been trying to find something more accurately stylish for a young adult professional. I don’t know if I succeeded at all, but it was good to play around with the different shirts. Now if only my actual PC would come home, I’d be able to churn these babies out mega fast.

As it stands, i’m limited to paper and my thinkpad tablet, que no es bueno nada.

Christina doesn’t want me posting any details about the project though, so I guess the few of you that care just get to hang out in suspense for a while. Expect many more of these design things in the future. I’ve got a ton of them in this sketchbook already that I just can’t show.

I was tagged by girlwiththefandomtattoo! (I never do these things so I figured whyyyy not!) 

OKAY HERE ARE THE RULES THAT AREN’T MEANT TO BE BROKEN:

1. Always post the rules.

2. Answer the questions for the person that tagged you and make 11 new ones.

3. Tag 11 people and link them to this post.

4. Let them know you tagged them.

(Also tag me, so I can see your answers!)

  1. What CD reminds you of your high school self? (if you are in high school now, what CD do you listen to all the time?)
    I was a little angsty in high school (then again who wasn’t?) I played the crap out of Red Jumpsuit Apparatus’ first album. I don’t really listen to it at all now but that was one that I really listened to a lot. And Simple Plan. Haha!

  2. Favorite food to cook?
    I LOVE baking. Chocolate chip cookies are probably my favorite things to cook but really anything baking related and I love it!

  3. A sport you wish that you were good at?
    Ah well I’m not really athletic and I don’t really like to compete. I’ve tried pretty much every sport and played at least once on a team and I really wasn’t bad at any of them. I guess I wish I was better at soccer and swimming because those were the sports I enjoyed the most as a kid but I just stopped played competitively because of reasons… lol

  4. Your biggest accomplishment?
    I guess graduating from college. Haha! Though I don’t plan to do anything with my degree. Selling my art at this last convention was a really great accomplishment for me. Just being there and getting incredible reception was enough. I can’t wait to do it again.

  5. Something in your purse/wallet right now?
    I have way too much crap in each. so I’ll just go with my work nametag since I always seem to lose it and since I have to commute an hour and a half to work it’s important to have on me so I don’t forget it.

  6. Your first celebrity crush?
    Oh lord I really have no idea. I didn’t really start liking celebrities until I was in high school and even then I never had a huge celeb crush. My current one is Joe Manganiello mostly because he’s drop dead gorgeous and plays my all time favorite Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood character, Alcide Herveaux. <3

  7. A book series that you’ve started but can’t quite make yourself finish, even if it’s really really good? 
    The Mortal Instruments. I’ve been trying so hard to finish the first book because the movie is coming out but i seriously hate how winy and impulsive Clary is. I just want to slap her in the face. I just need to get past the first book because I hear the rest are amazing but it’s so hard…

  8. The last video game you played?
    Animal Crossing: New Leaf. someone help me. I’ve put waaay too many hours in this game….

  9. A television show that you didn’t think that you would like, but it ended up being awesome?
    Avatar: The Last Airbender. I saw the preview for the first episode on Nickelodeon and I thought “Oh great, another cheap imitation anime on a kids channel.” But I thought I’d give it a try because I loved anime when the series first aired. Talk about the biggest slap in the face to myself. After the pilot I was hooked. Now I own all the DVD boxsets (in fact I just bought Korra today) and all the graphic novels that have been released so far. Words cannot describe how much I love this series and how wrong I was about my first impression.

  10. The last movie someone told you that you should watch?
    Pacific Rim - which I will hopefully be seeing tonight with my little brother!

  11. The last person you called on the phone and why?
    My baby (boyfriend) because I love him and I miss him and can’t wait to see him on Saturday! <333

It’s been seven years since I’ve been introduced to Anthony Green as a musician. I’ve loved all the projects he has been a part of and I can confidently say that he is one of my favorite singers of all time. Here’s to another seven years.
