Hi thar! Long time no see. Since getting the Internet at my new place, I’ve been wondering what on Earth to do with my Tumblr; I’ve been so far using it as a place to reblog cool stuff, and that’s about it. I’d created two other Tumblogs on this account to use as WIP/sketch-dump blogs; one for my ‘proper’ portfolio (I may revive that at some point?), and one for my usual fare. But, really, there’s no need to have so many blogs, so I just deleted most of the stuff I’d posted (including a couple of blog posts you can find on my ‘proper’ Posterous blog, something which is also feeling a bit neglected), and more-or-less re-start this whole blog as something aiming for more of an artistic bent; posting my own miscellaneous works, links to cool art stuff, and so on. 

So to start with, have a scribble I started last night, of Marisa Kirisame of Touhou fame wielding a rocket launcher that Nitori built (how she knew how to, I don’t know. She’s probably in cahoots with Yukarin over that one). Just a concept sketch, but it seems too cool not to take further. Though I could really do with working more on Nitori’s face, and Marisa’s is a little bit creepy; she clearly stole more than she bargained for after stealing the technique for Master Spark! 

(Mostly, though, I just wanted an excuse to play with white gel pen on brown paper. )

Finally updated the sketchblog over at my (currently WIP) portfolio site. Just a speedpaint (of sorts!) for personal reference, but I liked it enough to post up. 

Fingers crossed I’ll have a picture up per week, and then hopefully get started on my secret one-month project… 

[[blog is now down as I never used it. I’ll probably be using this as an art dumping ground instead! Ta for patience. -1/1/11]]
