Sorry to be away for so long. After losing Polly last week the place was too quiet. We missed all the sounds of little paws on the ground, the meowing, purring and other such things. So the other day we went to a Cat Adopt-a-thon and picked up these two sisters, more on my tumblr page, just click the image.

I'll hopefully be back to work again tomorrow... which marks a week since Polly's passing. We still miss her a lot, but now our home is filling up with these two adorable cuties.

This morning our sweet little cat, Polly, passed away from a stroke. She was 19 years old and already was on fluids every other day and special diet after we discovered one of her kidneys failed almost two years ago. We never gave up on her and she lived happily until the very last moment. She died peacefully in her sleep. She just looked like she was sleeping and wasn't actually gone.

We are going to take a bit to recover. I'm sorry, no art for the moment... I'll be back again soonish...

Edit: Found Kim had a photo of Polly from a few years back on her DA page. Here she is for you all to see her

I can't believe we won!

Last month Kim saw a Nvidia Shield giveaway on the Nyko Technologies page. All you had to do is comment on their FB or Twitter pages. I never win these things but decided to try because the idea of having a Shield to play with my sweetie and actually have an android device is nice.

Well on Kim's B-day we received a notification that we'd won... actually won something... The most we have ever won before is a free burger, pop, ice cream or maybe $10, but not a $250 device like this.  Not really sure this was real or not, but I answered the message, gave them our address and went on our day. 5 days later, yesterday, during dinner a FedEx person arrived with a package in hand and now we have another Shield and the biggest bubble wrap I've ever seen.

I've never had a Cellphone or anything like that so the whole Android thing is new for me. But having my PS Vita has shown me how it can help with my anxiety problems and help me socialize more. The PS Vita is limited in what it can do... the FB page is broken half the time, I can't access my tumblr page anymore and for some reason Crunchyroll forces you to have a subscription to view on the Vita or PS3, but not android or computer... *shrugs*

So now I'm grabbing apps that will be most useful, setting up my accounts, copying over my browser and what have you. Haven't really looked into the games even though the Shield is better for gaming than anything else. There is sooooo much to look at and it is a bit confusing too. But I finally can play some of these games with my sweetie. Always interested in playing more games with Kim after-all.

I also got the next chapter of Shinozaki-san... guess I should start work on that... it is the last chapter available in Japanese right now so it will take a bit for another to be released so no rush. Still should get this done as quickly as I can so it is out of the way... So groggy today...

Anyways, happy April everyone.

Life is an adventure

Geez, Tuesday was such a loooonnggg day... We woke up on 6pm n Monday and prepared our paperwork to go to a free tax clinic at a library that is across the city so needed to leave early in the morning, around 6am... The clinic is "first come-first serve" so you need to get there early. We arrived at 8 am with 2 hours to spare and sat down as we waited for the library to open... what we didn't know is there was a mix up and the clinic wasn't until 6 pm that day... *sighs* So we decided to go and get some other things done.

A quick subway trip over we headed for the health care office to renew both our health cards, which must be done every 5 years or so on your birthday. That went by much smoother than we expected, which is good because we were already anxious over the the whole Taxes thing.

Next, we decided to go find a mall so we can get some things we needed for the apartment. That was another hour long trip so it was nearly noon and we hadn't eaten in a while. We decided to have that dinner we'd planned to have on our Anniversary back in Jan and then tried to do on V-day, which both didn't work out. Finally this time we were able to go to the Swiss Chalet and get ourselves a couple of rib dinners. neither of us are good with restaurants we took the meal back to the food court and enjoyed part of our meal there before walking around the mall for a few.

All the running around and exploring the city with my sweetie was a lot of fun. So much silliness as we got lost in stores and tried to find subway entrances that were hidden. The silliest being this rotating door that was pretty stuck so took a lot of force to move. I grunted as I tried to turn it and Kim stepped in behind me confused by the effort I was making. When I was through I let go and looked back to see Kim's confused face turn to surprise as she suddenly had to push the door herself and realized just why I was having so much trouble.

Lots of silly, wonderful times with my sweetie. I love going out with her even if we do nothing but run around getting stuff done.

Finally, we returned to the tax clinic 3 hours before the place was supposed to open to find 3 people already waiting. We were so bloody tired since we'd been up nearly 24 hours.  Soooo tried... we were nearly passing out as more and more people showed up, by 1 hour we were up to 24 people waiting in line and they are not known to be able to get everyone done with over the 2 hours time slot. But we were one of the lucky first few to enter and got it finished quickly so were able to run off.

The only thing is I found out that Darren Shan was doing a book signing right there in one hour. There was no way we could stay up any longer and I didn't have any of his books in hand so we had to go.

We got home and pretty much passed out. I managed to pick up a bunch of movies from the library while waiting for taxes so we spent Kim's b-day just relaxing as we recovered from the other days events. Everything taken care of we could finally just rest, ended up sleeping a lot of the day. My body still hurts from carrying so much stuff. Trying to get my mind back into the art frame right now.

anyways, that is all. Sorry for the long post. Off to get something done before the end of the week.

nearing vol 3

Hi hi peoples,

Glad people are enjoying last weeks set of pages. Somehow I was able to get 4 pages finished, however this week isn't going to be that plentiful due to things my wife and I need to deal with some things tomorrow and her birthday on Wednesday so won't be able to work for those days. I'll try to get what I can done during the others days. Just not sure how well things will go since we just got up at 9pm and have to leave to get to an appointments at 8 am... *sighs* the fun of being a night owl...

As Vol 3 quickly approaches I realized a few things and decided to make a few changes to the scripting to make things run a little smoother. The original scripting ended around this chapter, 20,  with very little written in full for chapter 21 and on. Mostly a lot of jotted out notes about events that will, or won't, transpire. I was flipping through these notes and decided to tear out one section because I really didn't like the flow of it.

Just as I decide to forgo this old scripting I was inspired with a whole new story arc that fits perfectly with the current story and touches on more characters that you readers wanted to hear more about. I just need to create some additional characters. It's going to take a bit to get to the part I've written so I have time to get the characters to look right. Just spent some time working out their personality and history, now to figure out their looks based on what I have written.  

Aside from work I managed to finish Tomb Raider on Friday and someone posted a bunch of new chapter for Sweet Magical Syndrome, which I found very delightful. Ended up pretty much spending the weekend on tumblr as I posted about the up coming spring anime that caught my interest. Lots of stuff to cover as the spring schedule is nearly upon us. A fair amount of interest that is for sure. Check over there if you want to learn more.

Well that is all from me for now. Time to get something sketched before having to leave.

I see we have a bunch of new faces around here *waves*

Sorry about the sudden running off. I'm feeling much better now. This time my psycho doc appointment actually worked out, unlike last month. I guess I really needed it because he scheduled an 1hour session when it is usually 30 min. *shrugs*

Ended up spending the rest of Friday running around downtown looking for a book for a friend's b-day, but only to discover one of the best book stores around here was having a closing sale. The World's biggest Book store so closing?!? I couldn't believe it, but there were crowds of people running around grabbing whatever they could get. The manga section, which was huge, was pretty much cleaned out, but I did find Vol 7 of Hidamari Sketch and really want vol 8 now. It will be sooo sad to see Word's biggest going... I spent so much time wandering that store. *sighs* I guess this means more business for Hairy T and Silver Snail, still can't believe Silver Snail is right near Eaton Centre now. So strange... I don't get out enough...

So spent the weekend reading, Played a bit more Disgaea D2, but not much. Ended up watching a bunch of movies with my sweetie and playing some Tomb Raider, which is turning out to be very enjoyable. Also tried to return to DDR to work the pain out of my hip and knees... Can't do as much as I used too, but working at it... The pain is really acting up this winter... please winter go away...

Lots of yuri news to post on tumblr laters, I took a moment to post a couple of things a moment ago. Only woke up about an hour ago... back to night schedule it would appear... wait... where's my tea??? *runs off* Here it is! Left it on the cat stand in the hall...

Anyways, time to get back to work again. I'll try to get as much as I can done this week. Hopefully will be able to fix up this next page real quickly, since it is already half way finished. Just need to sort a bit of it out.

Well off to work now.

Sorry, I was only able to get one page finished... I ended up getting an email from Chi about the next chapter of Shinozaki-san on Tuesday and it was a long one. I wasn't even sure I'd be able to get that done either.

Somehow I managed to finish all the clean up and have another page of Inside OuT set up in the machine, but something seems off about the page right now. Ending up having to go out to deal with doctors in the middle of a snow storm doesn't help either... soooo cold... what happened?!? It was so nice over the weekend and up to yesterday and then, surprise more snow!!! Geez.... I have my psycho doc appointment tomorrow and was considering doing another page today, but I'm never in a good mood before that appointment... having two so close together makes things much worse.

So I'll take the fact that I did get a page finished and 34 pages of Shinozaki-san finished as a good sign that I wasn't a complete lump this week. I'll also have a page ready for monday so won't have to face panel structure first thing... which is always draining.

Well that is all from me for now. Time for some time with my sweetie and Disgaea D2!

Did everyone remember to set their clocks ahead last night? I hope so.

Anyhow, I discovered a delivery notice in the mail box yesterday, which is odd because I checked Friday so there shouldn't have been anything on Sunday... but I checked anyways and I found a box was sent from my old roomie and look what was inside! Disgaea D2 Collector's Edition and Weiß Schwarz cards for Sword art online and Madoka Magica!
 photo IMG_3855.jpg

I'm rather excited about this because I couldn't afford D2, nevermind teh Collector's Edition. I'm a big Disgaea Fan, as some of you know, been playing the series since the very first game... even had the PS2, PSP and DS versions of the first one... a little overboard I know... Kept the PSP version but got rid of that DS version.

Anyways, Finally I get to see the next chapter in the story of the original characters. I posted a bunch of photos of the CE on my Tumblr if you want to see more of it.

I'll get to work on more pages or Inside OuT right away. A little tired actually... We have two doc's appointments this week, Wed. and Fri, So that only leaves me 3 days to get work done. I hope to be able to go into more details about Akira over the next little bit. Slowly we are reaching the ending of Vol 2 and I have big plans for where this chapter ends off.

Some of you have expressed an interest in Hitomi's interview. I'm still working on how to best post it, probably make it an extra page at the end of the chapter or something so I can make it easier to read, or something like that. Still working that bit out... Hopefully I figure it out by the time I get to that point.

Well back to work with me. I'll try to get something done today... hopefully... Looks like spring is finally here, the sun is out and we spent the weekend cleaning up the apartment and watching movies. Boy is a little sore from it all actually... I'll get something done... just might not be able to post it until tomorrow.

Well I'm off. Jaa ne!

Well this weekend didn't work out exactly as planned... we couldn't pick up the computer because I didn't notice it was only available online and as such we don't have a credit card or any way of purchasing the machine... So we hit a small snag in our plans for the moment. This does seems to be the right idea to fix our computer problems... just can't do it right away... Trying to figure out some way around this problems...

I'll try to get back to work shortly... trying to sort out the structure of this page and such... hopefully will have something throughout the week.

Sorry I haven't posted any new pages for Inside OuT, still dealing with emotional stuff while trying to deal with this computer situations.

As some of you might recall my laptop is getting very old, over 8 years old now and still running on XP with only 2 gig of ram. Since I've been trying a lot of new stuff with Sai I've been maxing out my computer and causing all kinds of issues along the way. So in turn haven't been able to really get the most I can out of the program. Hell I can't even type up a journal while playing music without problems...

Back in December we were looking into a new machine for me, but couldn't find anything worth while, even discovered more problems with there new "laptops" recently, which aren't even capable of running much of anything if you are not willing to put a hell of a lot of money into it. Through all the struggling and issues we finally decided to see if I could move my work to Kim's machine and see if it can run Sai to the level that I needed, which is what I've been up to this week.

You see, not long ago Kim's video card burned out so she can't play most of the games she has, but the old video card works just fine and I don't really need a super video card for graphics programs. Well it appears to be working out nicely, even if I have to fight with all the settings to get things the way I want.

Yesterday, we were pointed to a relatively inexpensive gaming machine for Kim that would be easy to upgrade over time. So we are going to be getting her that machine at the end of the month, moving all her files form her machine to the new one. Then doing a complete system restore on her machine and then moving all my work over there. This should hopefully clear up a lot of my computer issues as well as make it so my wife can game again, Might actually be able to play games with her again too, instead of the original plan of saving up for 2 new systems for the both of us.

I still want to test a few things and am struggling with Inside OuT after my emotional breakdown the other weekend. Hopefully we'll have everything up and running by next week... if everything goes as planned.

Sorry for the delays. Thanks for all your support through this.

Wonderful, usually a visit to my psycho doc gets my head back in order for another month of madness... not this time... While we did managed to have a Rib dinner for V-day, finally, and spent the time together, we ended up staying up for 24 hours due to my appointment and then only sleeping for about 4 before waking up again... Sleep hasn't been too good, doesn't help that our cat keeps walking over my head at night...

Oh, one thing I didn't mention before is that we had a big scary concerning Polly back at then end of Jan, on the day of our anniversary actually... The Vet went off to a conference so was away for 4 days and in the middle of the night Polly started wobbling around and pretty much passed out, she wouldn't eat or move much at all... We ended up spending the next few days discussing the worst... Well the thing is after over 24 hours she got up and started to walk around and eat again. The biggest thing was when she came over to us and started purring, loudly. Never been happier to hear that sound. Anyways she is doing better now...

Sooo... I had a bit of a breakdown over the weekend. Managed to finish Kingdom of Amalur and was looking for something else to finish. Kim said I should try to return to Dead Space, some of you might remember last year our PS3 crashed and we lost all our game data so had to start all over again. I already had finished the first two and was on Dead Space 3 when the crash happened. Decided to start back with Dead Space 1 again, but haven't touched it in a bit... This is a game I've beaten several times. I know all about it... but for the life of me I couldn't figure out the controls or anything. I kept being killed over and over again... Normally I don't get upset by a game, but this put me over the edge and I just started crying...

Everything feels so... worthless... Can't think clearly... don't know what to draw... feeling completely lost at the moment... usually playing a few games would help, but that's not working... Don't really feel like reading or watching anything either...  Not really sure what to do about this... I hate getting this low...  Tried to just tell myself to get back to work right away, but that isn't working either... *sighs*

I should pull out of this... I normally do... just not sure how at this moment... Sorry about this...

Somehow I managed to get 25 pages of Shinozaki-san cleaned up and finish two page of Inside OuT so far this week. I won't be able to do anymore because I have a doctor's appointment today and then we are going to try having our Anniversary Dinner on V-day, since we were sick during our anniversary.

I'll try to get more work done next week. Need to post more on my tumblr, been so busy between being sick and other things that I have little time to post much of anything as of late. I'm trying to be more social here and there online, thank to those of you who chatted with me over the last few days. My mood has been pretty much a rollarcoaster ride of ups and downs lately. I'm just trying to stay focused and get work done, when I have the chance.

Hopefully this cold weather will finally pass because I'm starting to get sick and tired of it all.

Anyways, I'll be back laters. If you want more yuri news then remember you can find me on my tumblr: theyuricanon.tumblr.com/

Well jaa ne

Thanks everyone for all your anniversary wishes... not really sure what to call them... and get wells. Things have been rather rough this passed week and I'm feeling extra tried. Brain just won't shut down last night no matter how much I tried. Ended up laying in bed until about 6 am of all things.. thoughts just circling around... *sighs* I ended up spending some time in the living room at around 5 am scribbling some ideas out while my mind complained about everything under the sun...

I managed to get the clean up for Shinozaki-san finished yesterday, received the new pages on our anniversary so really couldn't do them right away. Chi asked if I was up for helping clean up on Love Lab, but I already have too many projects I really can't take over another...

Spent this morning... if you can call this morning since it is now 2 pm... *sighs* fixing typos and the like that :iconrangersteve: was kind enough to take the time to point out. I fixed the major ones in the main story, only leaving a couple in RA to fix up now. I'll get around to it shortly.

Trying to get my mind back in gear again after that last week. What is really making me scratch my head is the nearly 100 new followers I ended up with on tumblr last month, which brings me very close to 500 followers. Not really sure why the sudden explosion of followers but looks like I have more work to do on my tumblr page to get it up to date. I want to create a page for the pairing that I'm interested in, since so many keep asking me, and work on more "What is?" entries since I've seen people asking people what is K-on and Hidamari Sketch... Can't believe people don't know what K-on is by now...

Anyways, so much spinning in my head right now. Trying to figure out the layout for the next page of Inside OuT at the same time as all of this... *sighs* Also started work on a V-day short side story for Inside OuT, but I don't think I can get it done before V-day because it would be best at the end of Vol 2, which will be at the end of chapter 20.... if things work out the way I've planned them... I'm starting to think I won't be able to end this chapter where I want to because of just how much is going on at once. Everything works out perfectly the way I have it set up, it is just a matter of arranging things so they work out smoothly. I completely forgot about this one scene I intended to start the chapter with, which still fits in nicely, just won't happen right away. I just want to end on this certain scene... if at all possible...

Anyways, back to work with me. Just having a small snack right now. Sorting out my thoughts and all. I'll try to answer more comments in due time... sorry for all the delays...

Hi hi everyone,

The weather decided to be a pain again and it got extremely cold out here... as such I ended up getting sick over the weekend and as I get a little better Kim ended up catching it... so we are both hiding in the bedroom, the warmest room in the apartment, as we try to recover from this all.

The depressing thing is tomorrow, 29th,  is our the 9th anniversary of our wedding, 10 years since we first met online. So all our plans for that day have been sunk by freezing weather and illness... but we'll be sick together.

I'll try to get some work done on Thursday or Friday... I'll reply to what I can on my Vita, but it isn't easy to make longer posts on it, can't even make journal posts it seems... but I do check here from time to time. Even if I can't reply right away.

Well that is enough from me, this room is freezing, but I needed to check some things on the machine.

Keep warm everyone. This is one hell of a winter...

What a crazy tumblr weekend

Wow, a Yuri bomb went off over at Tumblr this weekend. If you haven't heard already Sakura trick Aired on the 9th in Japan and 10th on Crunchy Roll. I was finishing up the last of my work on Thursday night when I saw Crunchy Roll tweet about Sakura trick so I replied saying I'd review it next week since my account ran out. The gave me another free month, this is the second time they have done this. They even follow my tumblr and twitter pages of all things...  So I had a new subscription, but when I looked at the release timer it was right on my doctor's appointment. So I couldn't watch it until laters. I ended up staying up all night and into the day to make my appointment and then crashed when I got home...

Tumblr went insane over the series and it was hard to avoid it all. Images started flooding every page I was on and it was rather silly as the reviews ranged from it being great to people complaining about the fact that it wasn't a full "Yuri romance" and the fact that there were a few more breast and thigh shots then they expected. I took another look at the manga before watching the episode and found they are pretty much the same. This series never once claimed to be anything but a comedy about two girls in love. Some people just got their hopes up way too high. If you haven't seen the PV you can see it on my tumblr. You'll be able to watch the 1st episode for free on Crunchy roll this friday so you don't have to wait long. I'll post a review about the series laters.

What was unexpected was Nobunagun of all things. The PV was completely strange and made no sense at all. It first showed a soft possible yuri romance and then turned to explosions, rockets and aliens. Well the PV wasn't lying that is for sure. Episode 2 just aired on crunchy roll so you can watch the first one for free if you desire.

Also, all that time I spent searching through the Kirara site has been worthwhile as I ended up digging up a real yuri treasure. I came across a page for a series called トモダチログイン (Tomodachi Login) by 井藤ななみ (Itou Nanami) which only came out last year and found it rather amusing. You can read my small review about it on tumblr.

It looks like we are in for one hell of a yuri year. I've been posting PVs of all the series I've come across for those interested in learning what is to come soon. Also I really hope this rumor about season 3 of yuru yuri is real because that would really make my year.

Things got really insane all of a sudden as I ended up with a swam of followers on tumblr. About 60+ over the weekend and more keep flowing in at insane rate. I don't know if it was my posts about Sakura trick from a while back, which are getting a lot of hits, or something else, but Its been very busy over there so I've spend the weekend trying to clean up my page. Fighting with code as I try to get things to look right, getting all my tags to work and changing up the main page to list all the series that I tend to post about the most and fixing up my about page. I think I need to create a proper wallpaper for the page, now that I got the image to be stationary and not scroll, but not sure what to do with it at the moment.

Oh, the most unusual follower I ended up getting was Mitchie M is now following me... I don't know how that happened, we've never spoke before, but I got an email asking if I knew who this was and I couldn't believe it. If you don't know who Mitchie M is they are a big Vocaloids musician and you can see their works on Youtube. Still in a bit of a dither over that one...

Chap 8 of Shinozaki was posted over the weekend and I received Chap 9 on Friday so will be working on that right away.  I'll also begin chapter 20 of Inside OuT today, just need to work out this cover image. One more chapter and Vol 2 is finally complete.

Hope everyone had a safe weekend this chilly winter season. Keep warm.

Happy 2014, back to work with me

Edit: I hear giggles from my wife and Bryn behind me just now... She was looking at my post... Very funny sweetie... *fix fix fix* I hope I got them... There is a little girl who needs to be punished I see... Oh, Sweetie!!!

I hope you all had a good Holiday and an even better 2014! Good bye to 2013... that was a horrible year. I was going to do a breakdown of the years events, but I don't even want to talk about it all. I'm just glad that Kim is feeling better now after all that crap and hopefully this year will be much better. To think it has nearly been a decade of memories we've shared together this year. We met back in Jan 2004 so that means time for lots of celebrations.

I'm so groggy today it is unreal. I don't know what it is, but I just can't seem to wake up... Still today it is time for me to get back to work. I don't even know where to begin today, but I thought I should made a post here at the very least.

First off, if you hadn't noticed Chi posted a special short for Shinozaki-san on New years eve. I posted about it on Tumblr. Just finished cleaning up Chapter 8 a few moments ago actually. *sighs* so many speedlines and backgrounds to redraw it was driving me crazy, I think 70% of the 21 pages needs to be redone... *sighs*

Also, I posted my top yuri of 2013 on tumblr as well, if you are interested in seeing what series caught my eye the most, note I don't tend to be drawn to the same things as most, so my list is a tad different than others.

I'm considering creating a page for my fav  series of all time and couples, since soooo many people keep asking me what I'm watching/reading and the like. As well as a 2013 overview of all the yuri moments from last year that I encountered. Just not sure when I'll get those done with since I have so much work to catch up on. Maybe taking a week off wasn't such a good idea... Oh well too late now.

I'll get back to work on Inside OuT soonish, need to get my brain back in gear again. I spent much of my week with my sweetie playing one game or another. The week was filled with Borderlands 2, Torchlight 2, Magical Diarym Ni no kuni and Dragon's Dogma. I must say I'm completely addicted to Dragon's Dogma right now. I've spent so much time just wandering around trying to finish off all the quests that I can. The other day I ended up encountering 5 Chimeras, 4 Cyclops and an angry Gryphon that kept killing me over and over again. Still tons of fun.

Also, Kim got me RPG Maker VX Max over the holiday from a Steam sale. I was playing with that a fair bit too. I don't know what came over me but I suddenly decided to convert my old story Whimsical Wanderers into an RPG. It's going to take a long time and I'll just be poking at it from time to time, but it gives me something else to play around with. I just wish I knew where to find some cute monsters because the premade ones just don't work for my storyline. You'll probably hear me talk about this off and on throughout the year. 

No new computer for me this boxing week, All the sales were horrible, what is with all these 1 gig processors?!? Mine is a 1.6 and I need something with at least 2 gig now. All these crap systems for way to much money are insane. I don't need much, just a bit more than I already have, but couldn't find anything worthwhile. *sighs* Plus Kim's machine is giving her more problems... but she will have to wait because she needs a gaming computer and that is a tad more expensive.

So yeah, that is about it. My goals for 2014, finish Vol 2 of Inside OuT, try to get more art done than last year, try to be more social online (my doc has giving up on me being social in person now), and celebrate all the 10th anniversary moments with my wife.  Play around with RPG maker more, try to get a new computer and not kill this one... so on and so forth.

Well here's looking forward to a New Year of Yuri!

I just woke up to see that the project I was helping out with this passed has been posted on Dynasty! That's right I've been helping Comet Scans with Clean up and redrawing pages of Shinozaki-san Ki wo Ota Shika ni! ch06 and it was just posted so you can take a look see.

I read that they were in need of a redrawer last week or so and decided to inquire what was entitled. The work was actually very minimal when I looked at it, but I guess it is a lot more when you don't have the right tools and know how to make them work. I had to redraw sooo many panels, a lot were very easy and some where ridiculously detailed, redrawing entire fingers and hair a lot of the time. It was the toner that really drove me insane... Plaid of all things...

Anyways, That's what I've been up too in the mornings this week. I only spent about a hour or so per chapter, but it was well worth it to help bring this out to all of you. I just finished with Chapter 7, which has an insane amount of yuri in it, and sent it back to Chi, who is working on translations. He's hoping to have it done shortly.

Well that's all for now. I'm going to get more work on Inside OuT done... I see a few of you are scratching at the walls for more. I'll try to get something done today, hopefully.

Geez, I'm in an insane mood, all I know is I keep wanting to draw, but it is a matter of what to draw. I was going crazy this weekend not being able to draw so my wife allowed me to sketch for a bit on Saturday but stated I couldn't post anything, just draw. It was enough time to finish the next page of Inside OuT and get it set up in the computer with text.

Sunday I managed to get the inking and toning finished, but still couldn't post anything and to make things worse we are on a night schedule  and as such we consider whatever day we wake up to be the current day, So even though we woke up at 10 pm and it turned Monday 2 hours laters for us it was still Sunday so no posting.

Ended up playing a bit of Ni no Kuni, but wasn't really in the mood for it, plus I needed to do some level grinding, which I wasn't up for at the time. So I ended up playing From Dust instead, really interesting game actually. Note: When I rant here that I'm in a gaming mood and don't want to draw I'm just venting and off to work again right afterwards. It's just my way of getting it out of my system before getting to work again.

I began working on a 2013 yuri overview for the end of the year and it just keeps getting longer and longer. Since I'm basing it on my discoveries of the year and not just what was released there is a lot to go over. The manga is taking up the most time because I consume so much of it. Also, listing yuri moments from certain series, eg. Sae and Hiro graduating from Hidamari sketch, most of the information probably won't interest a lot of people, but I'm having fun doing it.

I just got some other news that has made me soooo excited, but I can't talk about it right now... actually I don't know if I can... I'm all bouncy because of it. Let's just say that doing this other project has helped when my mind feels stumped and I want to keep drawing, but can't think of what to do. Kind of gives me a different direction to come at. Hopefully I'll be able to show what I'm doing before Christmas, that is the plan anyways...

Well that is all for now. Back to work with me.

For the most part. I do believe this machine is getting close to its end... still 8 years is a good run for a laptop that has been dropped twice... *nervous twitch* I at least got something finished before all that, just can't show it here... will post about it laters...

Thank you to those of you who commented on how to fix the problem. In truth it turned out the issue was a very large update that was running in the background and caused the system to overload when I tried to anything up... if I'd known about the updating happening I would have just left the computer alone until it was done... Finally got the update installed, did a disk clean up and defrag just in case.

Should have been back to work sometime yesterday, but computer issues stress me out so I decided to take that time to play Ni no Kuni while the computer was doing its thing... god that game is addictive and so bloody huge it is unreal... Definitely glad Kim let me grab it before the sale was over. Now my only problem is wanting to go back to the game instead of getting work done... Sooo alluring...

This next page is being a pain, so many backgrounds I want to add in to get it to look right. I think I figured out my problem with it, but not what was going to be 2 pages is now 3... Still a lot of background stuff to sort out... Not really sure if this one page is really needed now that I've sorted out this other page... So any doubts about panel arrangement it is unreal... *sighs* I'll get it done eventually.

Well keep warm people, the study is an ice hut I tell you... Brrrr
