After a thankfully cost-free repair session, my computer's back up and running. The hard drive was fried, and I lost everything, but I still have my programs, so it's not as bad as it could have been. The ol' boy will need replacing eventually, but here's hoping he can last for a year or two longer.
In other artsy news, I've just completed my first commission of the summer, which was really a blast. I got to experiment with plenty of things, and I'm getting closer to the kind of wings that I'd like to be able to make more often. And even better, I got to use my brand-new sewing and embroidery machine-- which, by the way, is simply fantastic! I really need to make something that uses embroidery, though.
By the way, I'm super open for commissions. I'm saving up for an embroidery program that I can use to make my own embroidery files for makin' dresses and skirts look awesome.
I did make a skirt for my sister--she's kind enough to model it for me in a couple of days, as well as model a couple other things for me that I simply don't have pictures of yet. You guys should see those in a little bit, after I get the pictures all fixed up. After that, I suppose I'll be working on skirts and some more drafting-like stuff. I'm hoping to start up a business by makin' dresses and whatnot for the lolita fashion.
I also might be makin' a couple of art dolls, or some such, since those seem to do well sale-wise.
And then, beyond that, I've got a decent amount of artwork to do in relation to a Pathfinder tabletop roleplayin' game I'm in. I've gotta say, I'm super excited that I got into it, because it's quite fun. A little rule-heavy when it comes to combat, an' I'm still kind of getting familiar with all of them, but nonetheless fun and super worth it. The campaign I'm playing in currently is apparently a mixture of a couple of my DM's favorite things from the various versions of DnD that he's played, but his true love of necromancy and undead ties it all together quite nicely. I'm also running a game, but that is much harder and really I should be preparing for that game right now, aheh. It's the Rise of the Runelords adventure path, for anyone interested~
I think that's about it for now, so, have a great day, everyone! Also, think about commissioning me.
