It's been a few months since the last time and I've been pretty much completely gone from dA in this time, so I figued it was time for a little update.

Basically I've been working on my Smut Peddler entry (even though I'm past the deadline, woops, like half of people didn't finish in time) but I should be finished up with it within the week! WOOOOO! That's going to be a great weight off my shoulders when i do finish! I won't know what to even do with my freetime anymore...because right now it's either spent drawing or being anxious about how I'm not drawing while I derp on the net <_<; Or working. Or hanging out with the guy I'm dating. Speeeeeaking of that, we've gone from dating to being in a relationship! So yeah I have a boyfriend now <///<; On the Target work front though, I've had two interviews for the promotional position I was told to apply for and I'll know by Friday if I got the job! And I've been getting to know the people I work with a little better, and they're awesome but holy balls there is some dramu. Some of which I'm involved in, but that one is little (the guy I'm dating and another coworker asked me out on the same day, so other guy lost out and he's kinda....he clearly hasn't let it go that my bf won out with me instead of him and it's kinda awkward and weird, but that's another story...also he and my bf are vying for another promotional position and if my bf wins out on that one too I'm sure the other dude will be even more bitter towards him/us). Also it's super weird typing 'bf' or 'boyfriend.' OTHER THAN THAT, when I get done with the comic I need to update my PayPal and some banking stuff AND I WILL FINALLY, FINALLY get you your commission refunds for those of you who those are still pending for. I will clear that up as quickly as I can. Then I'm going to take a little time to recharge with art. Annnnd then I'm going to restructure all of my commission stuff and the things I offer and probably offer commissions again, now that I've actually learned how to handle them. THOUGH, they will be more expensive and different styles than I previously offered because what I like to draw has changed, and because I've improved, and because it just takes a fuckload of time for me to finish them, so I need to actually get a bang for my buck. I probably won't sell/market myself for commissions on dA anymore though, since every has really really low price standards here and i just can't work for the prices that are expected here. Idk, I'll either do commission through tumblr or through ArtCorgi or idk what. I'm also going to work on making some drawings to sell as prints and maybe open an Etsy to sell some of my originals and other 'tangible' type products, like moleskins/journals with drawings on them, etc. I want to start branching out to make my art more profitable @_@; But yeah, moving away from dA some for that, though I'll still post everything I draw/make mostly as advertisement...and you know, just for the people who like my art. Also with that, I'm going to probably start going by 'LAB' around the net where my art is concerned. I don't know, it's time for a slightly more professional name update if I'm going to possibly start marketing out my art a little bit more, and LAB is vague enough but still me (it's my initials). So we'll see on that. 

SO YEAH, that's where I am with stuff and I will post another update at the end of the week letting you know when I finish my Smut Peddler entry and if i got the job promotion, etc! Also a friend from college is coming to visit next weekend so that will be exciting too! And she's got to meet and judge my bf and see if she approves :T And we're possibly all going out with some of my work people SO THIS WILL BE WEIRD...but fun. But weird. Yeah 8D

Sadly buying a new system won't be in my budget, so I'll just have to watch play throughs on youtube or make a friend who has one to play it :T
BurningArtist Jun 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It would be awesome if I could just invite you over and we could play together. lol
Though I will wait to buy it too because a bay will be pretty expensive. T_T
I'll buy it once FFXV comes out or KH3 which ever first.
Also, here's a little something I promised you a while ago but I'm not done with it yet. I just want to show you the lines.
I think you'll recognize who it is: [link]

kfjweiofweifj If only the world wasn't so big that'd be freaking awesome :T

Yeah, I'm gonna wait til after I get a legit job and after I buy a new laptop as mine is on the probably not for a few more years, but hopefully the prices will come down some by then, or at least I can hope.
