Thanks to the small blurb on the lower left-corner of page 334 in March's Shojo Beat issue, I can now reveal the identity of New Title 2. ^^ I know a couple of you are very curious about this title, so here 'tis!!!!



And the other reason I'm genki!! Anthy is here!!!!!!!!! XD Anthy is the name of my 2nd drawing tablet, the one I'll be using with Utena. *clutches Anthy's huge shipping box to her chest and strokes it* I haven't taken her out yet....still must finish prelettering....but now that she is here, and I no longer have to wait until Doumyouji (work tablet) is free....*eyes sparkle* Just imagine the possibilities!!!

The goal is to draw something EVERY SINGLE DAY!! KYAAAA!!!!!! *reverently places Anthy safely on the floor and then runs in happy circles* Eeeeheeheehee!!! XD XD XD

Due to events last week, things are rather interesting. We're all stressed out, the Giftmas tree is barely half-decorated, none of the other usual decorations are up, and I've barely bought any presents. I'm behind with work by 14 pages, assuming I can make today's quota. I used up one of my precious days off from all 4 titles yesterday, so at least I'm not 26 pages behind.

Naruto corrections for 32.1 are still waiting for me to finish. I've done all the easy text changes, what's left are FX tweaks (including one really bad page where they changed the actual FX words...O.o) and a ton of Tsunade wardrobe malfunction pre-emptive strikes. (Fear not, Tsunade's more-surface-area kimono top will be in the magazine only. The book version will be unchanged. ) The 2nd half of Naruto 32 corrections should arrive any day now. I have no idea when New Title 2's corrections will arrive. Perhaps after Giftmas. Honey 5.2 corrections are already here, but they aren't due till after New Years. Yay.

I've been rather out of sorts for the past week and a half, so it will be very good to get back on track. I'm exercising today, no matter how much I should work instead. I'm feeling rather tubby since I haven't exercised in a week. I don't care how cold or nasty it is outside, I'll risk getting sick tomorrow for some peace of mind today.

I've been editing DaaGB 5 on paper in my spare non-computer moments, and am almost finished. I've started the final round of computer polishing as well. With some serious luck, I'l lhave it ready to beta in a few days.

And on that positive note, I shall depart. Sorry I'm not full of holiday cheer for you all. I hope everyone is enjoying your own holiday. ^^

My my my, here's a first. It took 12 volumes, but I finally had to draw a Claymore warrior's cute butt. This particular woman doesn't have the middle back panel on her armor skirt. And with those skintight leggings they wear, it means...butt cheeks. Yes, I made them shapely butt cheeks. All Claymores are fit, after all! I'm sure the male Clay fans (and the women who are so inclined ^^V) will be pleased with my efforts. *giggle*

Since I'm here anyway and it's been a while, how about a shigoto update??



The good thing about returning to the core 4 is that maybe, just maybe, this holiday season I can take it a little easy. I still have one piece of artwork to finish, and I really really hope to finish chapter 5 of DaaGB and have it up before the end of 2007. I've barely had the time or energy to touch non-work-stuff the past few weeks, so maybe now that New Title 2 is done, I can spend some time with my personal interests. *hopeful smile*

That's it for now, minna. Work calls!! I've been fighting half a cold for the past several days, and now have a rather despressingly large backlog as consequence. Woe again...

As  Thanksgivings go, this one was towards the top of the list. A minimum of drama and fuss, and just enough time with my extended family to make me wish they maybe could have stayed longer. Even some snow outside. But the bad weather meant no one wanted to risk getting frozen in, so everyone left rather quickly. Ah well!



That's it for now, minna. Work calls!! Five titles at once is interesting, as you all know. But it's good to know that NT2 will be over and done when I finish the volume. Whew! Shigoto shigoto!! XD

First up, thanks to everyone who voted in my previous post's poll. If any of you have not yet done so, please vote soon! I am honestly interested in your feedback. ^^

A few big things happened while I was staying away from LJ.


That's it for now, minna. It's good to be back!

 I haven't been very chatty lately, not here or in comments or emails. You guys know by now that this means I'm inundated with work. Script for New Title 2 pages 19-56--the remainder of the first chapter--arrived a few days ago, so I'm back to lettering 16 pages a day. Thankfully I don't have to touch Nana for a while b/c of a far-distant deadline, and Naruto b/c I worked so hard before New Title 2 hit...but the knowledge that Clay 12 will descend in about a month (assuming the translator isn't late *cough cough*) keeps me working on them both. Nana has no end in sight (I already have script through vol 15), but Naruto will be over once I finish the last page of this volume.

The script for New Title 2 arrived today, which means I'm back to five simultaneous titles. Thank the manga no kami I've already burned through so much Naruto in preparation. I could skip lettering a singe page of Naruto for a month and still make that deadline. But beginning a new title is always time-consuming as I get the feel for it, this time especially since it's with a new editor.

Good thing I already posted 1S2W to the Pit and Luna. I'm not sure how much time I'll have for fun stuff now...I must finish as much lettering as possible before Clay vol 12 arrives in late November and sucks the life out of me. I'm glad I spent much of earlier today thinking about DaaGB and coming up with some interesting ideas and advantageous loopholes. I made sure to write them all down, and I can still think about them, I just can't write anything substantial yet. Hmmmm...oh well. I'm trying to end DaaGB at Part 6, so this will force me to really plan everything out. I want to give it one hell of an ending, one that matches what really happened in the dream that inspired the whole thing. *wink* (Have I ever mentioned that before? If not, DaaGB was inspired by the dream that made me a Gaara-sama fan.) *coughs and blushes*

That's it for now. Work calls. I'm a little too optimistic for the goo icon, but I guess that makes me optimistic goo tonight. Heh. Ja, minna...

Yes, I changed my journal layout again. The ginko leaves were pretty, but for some reason the date and timestamp on my entries wouldn't remain displayed, so I found this pretty minty thing instead. Wheee!

As promised, a shigoto update.

Alas, my mini-break is over. The tiffs (meaning the individual page images in their original Japanese language) finally arrived for Honey volume 5, which means I'm back to four simultaneous titles again. T.T And I'm suddenly stressed about it, but only b/c I haven't really put it into the proper perspective. (Plus points for alliteration.)



That's it for now. Work calls...no more spare time for s2m. *sigh* It was so nice while it lasted...

Because I feel like it and suspect this topic wins the popular vote, a shigoto update. </pouty s2m>


 


 


 


 


 


 


And with that, the extra-detailed shigoto update is finished. *bows out*

I've been rather silent lately, in comments, email, and blogging. Gomen. It isn't for any particular reason--I'm no busier than normal, not feeling any worse than normal. I guess I simply haven't felt like chatting much!!

To catch everyone up on work, here's what's going on. I rechecked my schedule math, and provided I don't fall behind, everything looks good and manageable. I'll be finishing Honey 4.1 and Naruto 29 both a week before they are due b/c of my trip to the west coast. I have an extra week for Skip 12.1 for my vacation, and I've been keeping up with my Clay schedule, which I calculated to allow me the extra time in the first place.


For a small fandom digression, I ended up visiting a Claymore comm, [profile] claymore_fans. They don't have the slightest idea that I'm here. Of course, the comm was made after the anime debuted, and they seem to focus on scanlations *grumble*, but still. And no, I'm not going to announce myself. I rarely tell anyone I don't know what I do for a living. 

And because of two bad!fic rants for Clay on [community profile] fanficrants, my next fic will not be Jin/Mugen slashy goodness. It's going to be that Clay fic I mentioned several posts ago. Heh! *hides from a very angry and sexually frustrated Mugen* I've begun rereading Clay from vol 1 and taking notes for fic purposes. It will be genfic and rated PG or PG-13 for violence. So hopefully those of you who don't Naruto or slash/yaoi will read some Clay instead. ^^V

A great deal is going on at the moment.
