I uploaded a bunch of art to my Zazzle shop, which is print on demand. I prepared mostly postcards and stickers, but the designs are transferable.
Currently, the art series available are Doggust, Inktober 2019, Huevember Baroque Birds, Pod People, some of my Liberated Dragons and a few miscellaneous.
And finally, the one I never seem to be able to stick with. I went further than I thought I would though. I still have sketches to color so maybe I’ll go full circle on the Baroque Birds even if it’s not November or 2019 anymore.
I got roped (totally not against my will) into no less than 2 RPG campaign this year, for the first time almost ever, so of course I drew my character(s) and some others stuff too. I also attempted to be chosen to participate in an OC (Other Character) tournament, (it’s a thing) but I failed. So I have a number of sketches and a very basic comics I did for that.
I like revisiting old drawings disasters that I couldn’t salvage before, or simply update some of them. I tried my hand at digital inking and coloring of one old sketch and I was pretty happy with the result.
I also tried AI coloring on old drawings with mixed results. It was pretty interesting though.
Trying Doggust was pretty fun actually. I need to try more drawings from model and it was really great to get to use my (cheap) alcohol markers. In the beginning, I thought I would do strictly black and white, but experimenting with the markers, white pencil and grey markers to get close to the right colors was really an interesting experiment.
Hey, a real post !
I read mainly digital books nowadays, on my laptop (a macbook, secondhand), and I’ve used the Kindle app for a long time, which let me appreciate the total dearth of display option it has and the inconvenience that stems from this for me.
I can’t really take the books off from it (I’d have to delete them from my account, as if I’d never bought them in the first place… no rereads possible ! and seriously. I bought them. I’m keeping them !) and the list making is completely clunky and cumbersome.
My main problem was that I had trouble seeing what I had already read and what I hadn’t, forcing me to read the new recent stuff I remembered getting, instead of the books that were waiting for a while, and leading me to get more books instead of reading the ones I already had (… well played, kindle >:D)
I’d tried a number of time to use Calibre, since I’d heard it could import all my books and had a much better filling system, but it never worked.
Finally, after coming once again across a post lauding Calibre, I tried again, and after looking around for a solution to my (very common, actually) problem, I finally installed an older kindle version that lets me import my books into Calibre, provided I NEVER update it again.
Which fine by me.
And it works ! Now that I’m able to file the books accordingly, I can access the list of my unreads and plow through it !
So happy !
So far, I’ve been able to rediscover that I had all of Garth Nix’s Abhorsen books, which I devoured (so good !), and then realized I had a few old Tanith Lee digital editions that needed reading, and so on and so forth, especially those books I got a while ago because they sounded awesome, then totally forgot about…
I tend to forget about stuff if they’re not visible, so it’s a real life saver for me.
I recommend it.
