Insert Interesting Sounding Title Here

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 26, 2015, 7:52 AM

Well it's not quite been a whole year since my last journal update XD;. Figured that since I spammed up my gallery with stuff, I may as well update this as well while I'm at it (and add a pretty new skin by anokazue to brighten things up a bit). 

Just a heads up, I'm more inclined to post stuff onto my Tumblr at first, and then upload things onto here later, so feel free to check that out if you want somewhat more regular updates =)

So what am I up to, well right now I'm taking a short break from taking plushie commissions in order to work on revamping my plushie patterns. I currently have a pattern for a new "chibi" proportioned human plush almost finalised, just a few more adjustments before I can make something of it (have an idea in mind on what to try first), and I'm also planning for a taller plush pattern which I'm hoping to reflect the proportions of my usual drawing style a little better, if I can get it to work out how I'm hoping. At some point I'd also like to work more on some non-human plushies again, but I'll get to that in time, and I'm at least learning skills I can use when I come around to making those.

Not much to say in regards to drawing though, it's taken a bit of a back-seat to the plushies, but I'm at least out of that slump I mentioned in the last journal, and I have a few things in mind I wanna draw at some point, mostly in regards to my characters which I seem to be drawing the most of as of late XD;. I've spent a lot of time recently thinking about my characters and their stories and what I want to do with them, I have a hard time getting it down in writing though that's the problem so it's all stuck in my head right now XP;. I would really like to actually start doing something with Ivy's (formally Vixen) story in particular though, she's gone through so many changes over the many years I've had her, and I think I'm starting to come to a point in which I'm comfortable with the direction it's progressing. There are a few other characters and stories I'd really like to work on too, which are more fantasy based compared to Ivy's more "slice of life" style of story, but again it's all about actually getting it down on paper, which is the hard part XD;. 

All that aside, I have been watching WAY too much anime as of late XD;. I bought a premium membership for Crunchyroll at the end of last year, and it's safe to say I've made good use of it, far more than I ever did with my Netflix subscription that's for sure, haha. Since getting it I've watched a 3rd of Hunter x Hunter (got a bit burnt out with it, might go back to it though), Sword Art Online, Rurouni Kenshin (which has made itself one of my fav animes so far, and I'm currently reading the manga as well), Your Lie in April, Yona of the Dawn (which is the one I'm most into at the moment), Durarara (again, another anime to become a top fav of mine), Log Horizon (got a bit burned out with this too though), Little Busters! and Kuroko's Basketball (yes, I'm watching a basketball anime, and for someone who typically doesn't care for sports, I'm really enjoying it for some reason XD).
I also tried watching SHIROBAKO, which being about the workings of an anime animation studio you'd think it would interest me, but after 2 episodes I got really bored of it, not so much of the stuff on the running of the studio itself as that was pretty interesting, but more of the main cast of cutesy girl characters; I think it's one of those shows that would appeal more to fans of K-ON! and the likes which really arn't for me XP. And I watched the first episode of Fate/Stay Night, which I did enjoy and probably will get into, but the order of whether to watch it or the prequel, Fate Zero, first confused me so I think I'll get through the ones I'm watching first before figuring that out XD;. 
On top of that, given all those animes were in Japanese, I needed something English to watch to occupy me while working on my plushies (because trying to sew and read subtitles at the same time is not something I am capable of doing successfully XD; ), so I bought the first season of Black Butler on DVD and somehow managed to watched all of it within a few days XD;. I enjoyed it, were some issues here and there with the pacing of the overall story, but had a cast of great characters to make up for it, plus it had J. Michael Tatum, who also did the voice of Okabe from Steins;Gate, playing Sebastian (not MY Sebastian however, part of the reason I avoided this anime until now was because having an OC share a name and certain physical features as the main character from this was a little awkward for me, even though they're really nothing alike besides that XD; ) and his voice is oh-so suave and lovely <3. 
And finally, not "technically" an anime, I watched all of RWBY, mainly because I felt terrible for having not watched it before hearing the creator of it suddenly passed away =(. Such a terrible shame, RWBY is an AWESOME show and he was super talented, it's really sad to see someone so young and with so much potential die so suddenly like that. 

Well, that ended on a depressing note, sorry about that, not got much else to say XD;. Think I've blabbed on enough, should probably actually get back on with stuff instead of procrastinating on this journal any longer ^^;. Expect another journal entry in another year, probably XD!

Happy early birthday. I really liked your Zelda artwork. I've been a Zelda fan since I was 7 or 8 and bought Ocarina of Time.

Would you ever open up commissions again? (Drawing commissions)

I've been browsing your gallery for a bit and the charities you donate to are very much in my interest. Though I'm Canadian and not American, I would like to help you. I saw your Kanga and Roo picture and someday I'd like one similar.
