Oh yeah, it's Wednesday. I need to post. *blank expression*
I'm a half-zombie, which means I'm not at 100% but not fighting to stay sane, either. Meh. I've been listless and without focus the past few days. Yesterday I did no prelettering, instead I read fanfic in between Naruto pages. (I've discovered the joys of South Park slash. Yes, you heard me. And ew, no! They're teenagers in the fics.) Today I was a good girl and did corrections for Natsume 1.2, since SE2 sent them to me late yesterday. I finished half of them, then watched the South Park movie for the 2nd time in my life. (Those songs are so catchy. I now have "What would Brian Boitano Do?" stuck in my head. :P I really want to draw SP fanart, bishounen style. *giggle* Not that I have the time for that.
Speaking of fanart, my lovely artist friend Lexi drew a portrait of my elf self! XD You can see the shiny here
in her DA acount. I'm working on a reciprocal pic, and I'm using it to practice the things I need to work on, like dramatic lighting and clothes. :B *is trying to improve*
In regards to work, today I turned in the first half of Naruto 46. The 2nd half has even MORE fighting (urgh), but thankfully I have a little longer to do this half of the conversion. Yay. Unfortunately, this half has color pages. The color pages have been lettered for the magazine by someone else, but I can't use the mag version for the GN. The reason is DPI. Color digital files at 300 dpi. The Japanese color pages have been turned into b/w ones at the standard 1200 dpi. So dragging the FX from lettered mag color page to unlettered GN b/w page doesn't work, since they're 4x too small. Thus, I'm lettering the color pages 100% all-new. Wheee! Just like old times!!( An amusing Naruto observation, spoilers for around vol 42. )
I did make it to my book club meeting, much to my joy. I even found out one of the key members reads FMA. Yay! It's nice to know I don't have to defend my passion to everyone. :D
Speaking of which, my doujinshi is coming along. I've been chipping away at it here and there. I'm working on the final page at last, which I'm surprised to say has been the easiest for me so far, though it's the most complicated of the lot! I must be gaining confidence, proficiency, and speed. Yay again! I'm almost finished with the inking, not counting everyone's hair. *wince*
My mind just blanked, so I'll take that as my cue to depart. See ya next Wed!
