Thar she blows…!

Hey again! (There goes another ‘hiatus’/long break in between posts!)

During this almost-past year, I’ve discovered that God allows certain thing to happen for a reason. I am still discovering the reason ‘why’ on so many things, but in the meantime, I get constantly reassured to just keep on pressing on, and to see the light in every seemingly dark situation.

So… it’s interesting, yes.

Anyhow, I wanted to say how I finally updated my site a bit ago, organized some things… but… now my website isn’t working! lol -___- (Off go to fix that. Maybe it’ll be fixed by the time you read this xD (maybe not, lol)) Actually, it looks like it’s just the hosting site, itself, which is down… xD Might have to just wait it out, lol.

I updated the “Comics” page with some new-ish art… My publisher for “Mystery of the Black Water” is working on getting online orders for my (and others’) comics, so I can at least make that available for you too. 🙂 Currently working on pt. 2 of that…

Still excited to see TJM (Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie)!!! 😀 😀 (Next year, 2017!!)

I may go back to work on MSI (My Sweet Indulgence)… tbh, it was supposed to be a one-time thing, long ago… but it seems that people like it, so that’s cool!

I also want to work on/rewrite NKTR (Nekoturr’s Realm– I’ve already rewritten some of it); I feel like I’ve been saying that for the longest though… actions speak louder than words tho, yess? So, I just have to build up the courage and just do it! lol. But how to make it not so cliff-hangery all of the time, and give it some resolution in between…? Still working on that… xD

Spiritually-speaking, I have a lot to work on. Me and God need some serious one-on-one time to figure my heart out. But never stop believing! He has given me so many little gifts and encouragements… it’s super cool, actually! (To see God answer prayers on even the little things; even things I haven’t really overtly prayed about, but I needed it anyway.)

God is so cool 🙂 Give Him a chance!

Again, still looking for the good in my dark situations, but as long as I don’t give up (and the temptation is really there), I know that He’ll guide me through.
I know some people have different beliefs, and that’s okay. That’s just where you are. But I believe in my God, not just because my parents believed it, or I read it out of a book, but He’s also something that I’ve experienced, first hand. I didn’t have strong faith for a while– and even now, it wavers from time to time (depending on my situation, but I need to work on that)– but once I finally ALLOWED God to change my heart, and trust in Him, I finally was ABLE to experience Him and some of his direct blessings. But without the trust, there was no way I would be feeling or knowing anything too soon. As stated before, I still have a lot to work on, but I’m hoping that God will work with me through my weaknesses. (And boy, do I have a lot of those!) Lol

Hope you guys are doing fine!! Live your life with no regrets!!

p.s. Oh!! I’m also trying to finish up, at least, the written version of Trunks’ Date. You can view it here!
p.p.s. Dragonball Super is super awesome!! lol (It’s gotten my inner, old-school-anime-fanatic self coming to life again, lol.)

(Also on DA!)

Inspired by our weather’s recent cold-ness?… Why… no way… 😛 XP
Haha, yes, well…
It’s really true that if you don’t use it, you lose it! I haven’t done a regular watercolor/ marker/ colored pencil illustration in forever! So, this is just practice! 😮 I had it in my head a completely different way, but this is how it turned out…XD Oh well… XD…
Hope you like it! 🙂

The character is from one of my stories, “Mystery of the Black Water”, hopefully to be coming sometime in 2014! Watch for it! :)…♥

A w.i.p. (work-in-progress) and such

BWpages0001cowipthm

Hey, guys! So… I’ve been ‘gone’ for a while (in terms of internet uploading of my art) because I’ve been:

1. Working on projects that are supposed to be published, so I can’t show them prematurely.
2. Working on W.I.P.’s in terms of story, so there’s nothing much to see anyways.
3. Been really uninspired to finish anything as of late!

Basically, an art/work funk. I hope to get out of it soon though. I’ve been coloring some pages for the HSMP re-release in 2014/The KawaiiKon, so the pic above is a preview of that (it’s actually going to be 4 colored pages though… well, one illustration is not colored on the computer!). Besides that, and a fanart sketch here and there, there’s nothing much I’m motivated to do. ;_; Gah, it’s very annoying being like this! As I’ve said though, I hope to get out of it soon.

I am not a webcomics sort of person (I don’t mind uploading doujinshi’s/fancomics though), because I want to see my original comics in print. I’ve realized that now. I always seem to leave stuff half-done when it’s something I’ve wanted to be in print instead.. or just felt like I wasn’t achieving its intended purpose, somehow. But, I can only try so hard, you know? There’s a point where you have to give up, right? Well, I don’t know it, as of now. This [‘journal’ entry] might not make much sense to you, but this is my own personal battle… creative-wise.

By the way– Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and have a Happy New Year! 🙂 🙂

Update: Good (and bad) news

Looks like I’ll be published by these guys: http://www.limemediahawaii.com/ 😀 (Yay, I’m mentioned on the front page– it’s official! lols.) It’ll be my “Mystery of the Black Water” story. 😀 So, I hope you guys like it! ^3^ Won’t be till next year though… lols. I’ll keep ya posted!

Here’s another character from that story– Elfanzo– to celebrate!

Also, my site keeps having “issues”… Sorry for any disturbances. I’m currently re-uploading my Gallery to a different server, too, so that may be down for a while… You can still visit the old one, though. http://justdream.co.cc/gallery/
