      Oh, hello there

      6 months ago

      Hey everybody!

      How y'all doin?


      I figured I should make my first post in months, so I have a bunch of things to tell you!


      For starters! I HAVE A DECENT job! It's on the back dock of a Salvos store, but it's got other people, it's 4 days a week, it's decent pay, and most importantly, not at the Christmas Warehouse that made me have multiple breakdowns cause of pressure.

      You'll notice I said 4 days a week?

      Well, I'm not wasting my 5th day. I've actually used that day to make a significant and important step in my career. I've made myself part time at my own Business, instead of doing just night work, and let me tell you, if you make time for things, they happen. Since I changed at the beginning of November, I have gotten 4 MASSIVE design pieces to work on, and 3 commissions, and all up, they make about half of what I made just last year alone. So yeah, I'm pretty happy with what I'm doing at the moment.

      I am also finishing up my 3rd comic book this month. And hopefully my 4th by Christmas. It's 368 days since I released my first book for pre-order, and I'm very excited for my second book to actually go to the printers. And I'm also very excited to announce that along with @scheree I will be exhibiting at the inaugural RTXAU, with a much bigger booth, an awesome display, a competition, and a lot of books and merch!

      I was also one of the Roo Teeth admins for a while this year, but I gave up my title due to wanting to focus on other things, as well as some personal reasons. I am still on the leadership team, in an advisory position though. One of my major roles is now in the preparation and technical execution of our Charity Live Stream in Sydney, hosted by the Nerd Cave in Sydney. I'm very excited to deal with the multitude of tech problems that will arise during it.

      I have said goodbye to 3 family members this year as well, and I'm focusing on the positives so I can push through it, but I couldn't make a journal this year without mentioning them. My Grandfather, who passed away in September. Up until last year, he was teaching at the university he worked at, which was impressive to say the least. Squawk, my pet Lorikeet fell ill, with what we believe to be a lung infection, and she died within a week of contracting it, on Halloween night. I still look over where her cage used to be. And finally, my sister was pregnant for 6 weeks, and miscarried November 11, and even though I never met my Nephew or Niece, I still cant help but feel sad that I'll never get the chance to meet them.

      All in all, it's been a year of ups and downs, but for the first time in 3 years, I have no idea what I'll be doing at this time next year. There's now too many variables.

      So how y'all doin'? What have you been up to this year? What are you looking forward to next year?

      Words are hard

      In light of the news, I thought I'd dust this account off to say goodbye to Monty Oum. I never met the man, but he probably changed my life more than anyone I know. It was Episode 10 of Season 8 that got me into Red vs Blue, his animation made me want to seriously reach for the media industry.

      Over the next couple of years, I lost my way. I stopped making stuff, but there was always a voice in the back of my head asking why I wasn't creating. That voice sounded like Monty Oums. I thought, that's a damned good question and started again, chasing my dreams for my comics once more, and I have to thank Monty.

      Monty was a hard worker, someone who would put the hours in to get something done, even if it meant sleeping at his desk. I will always admire him for his work ethic, and his dedication to everything he decided to work towards.

      Monty, thank you for the impact you've had in my life and the lives of everyone else here.
      We're gonna miss you.

      Productive day

      2 years ago

      I needed to reset my brain yesterday. So, I got up early and had another crack at Blender, the program I am now using for 3D.

      I worked on Blender for about 12-13 hours and modelled the majority of a major character, bit slower than I used to go, but hey, new program. There are a few things I would like to change, but mostly I'm happy with it. Then between 11pm and 1:30 am this morning, I sketched a page for Pyroette.

      I'm not sure if I'm proud of the amount of work I did today, or disgusted at the amount of work time I've lost other days when I don't open any of those programs. Either way, it feels good to be productive.

      SBP and Relay for Life 2014

      2 years ago

      Hey guys. Thought I might update you on everything to do with me at the moment.

      I have been kind of flat out with work on the Stupidly big project of mine. I'd like to say it's at the same level as when I started, but I now have about 10 times as much work to do, as I recently started in on blender. It doesn't make me cry anymore! So that's good.

      Right now I've been listening to Red Like Roses parts 1 and 2 to get motivated and I have actually finished a character orthographic thanks to it. I wish there was a way to put YouTube on repeat.

      In other news, I have been trying to raise funds for the Hills Relay for Life 2014 hosted by the cancer council. If you aren't aware, Relay for Life raises funds for cancer research and is a great way to remember and honour loved ones. One of our team members lost his sister to cancer, so we're especially motivated to help find a way to kick it's ass.

      If you have anything you can spare, it would be amazingly appreciated, as we are so close to making me have to shave my head. All it would take is for me to raise $200 in online donations for my team.

      So... Go ahead. Make me shave.

      Hey, I've read the group pages and stuff about the chupaparents things but I still don't really understand, if you could kind of give me a simple explanation I would very much appreciate it. Your art work is great by the way.

      • Raddlez

        2 years ago

        Chupa's are essentially Myshu's form of commissions. She adapts characters into her own chupa style. She does these for free, and they are awesome. Basically all you have to do is wait for an adoption season and then draw the character you want Myshu to draw for you and she will as long as the characters not taken by anyone.

        Thanks for your compliment!

      Appreciation time.
      Since meeting you on teamspeak, you've driven me places, let me stay at your home, cooked me dinner, gave me access to great tv shows, made me into a secret agent, and have basically always been a helpful and respectful friend. I appreciate you because you've done so much for me in amongst doing so much for the Salvos, so, while you're helping me, you're also helping so many others at the same time.

        That's sad to hear that you had to stop working on your comic, but at least your living your dream. You can check out my latest journal to see a watered down version of what I'm doing now.

      • Raddlez

        3 years ago

        Hey dude. I'm doing pretty well. I've finished uni and I'm livin' the dream and getting paid as well :P

        I've kinda... Stopped working on my comic since we last spoke, which is sad, but it was getting in the way of uni work. The page with you on it is still front and centre though.

        How have you been? It's been way too long!
