Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above,
Would drain the ocean dry.
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.

New Laptop!

Hello!

I’m writing this from my new laptop! :D My husband and I decided to get a new one even though our old one is still functioning, since it was having some rather irritating problems. It would sometimes act like it was overheating or working really hard on something when very little was actually running, and it got really slow whenever I used Photoshop, which was pretty much every day. So it’ll be really nice not to have to deal with that now, and to have an extra laptop around if we need it or both want to use one at the same time.

I’m really liking the new machine, but the color display is a bit different, so looking back at my recent artwork was kind of frustrating. Some of them look rather washed out, especially the skin areas. That’s the biggest problem with digital art – everyone’s computer display is a little different, so you never know how your artwork is going to look to other people >.< What can you do. But seriously, please let me know if anything looks off about the colors in my artwork, especially anything new that I post since I’ll be working on this new laptop.

Speaking of artwork, I am still drawing! Haha. I doubt anyone noticed since it hasn’t been that long, but I went through a week where I just didn’t feel like drawing anything at all, which is pretty strange for me. I am working on a piece now, but it has quite a ways to go (FE7 fanart! :D). Also I’m working on my second play-thru of Awakening, so that can’t be helping me any in the productivity department, eheh ^^; Hard mode this time! It’s so fun! :D

The weather is finally warming up here. 50’s feel amazing after you’ve been stuck in the 20’s for so long, haha. Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a great week! ^-^

It's Here!!!

I know what I'm doing for the rest of the day :D

A...another promotion? Seriously, tell me who you are so I can draw something for you!! Haha, all I can figure is that someone really loves Fire Emblem...or maybe TheO staff is promoting the game...or something. Gah, I don’t even know what to say >u< If someone out there is paying for these promotions, thank you again!! You’re amazing!! ♥

Alright, let’s see if I can calm down enough for an actual update XD My husband and I will be spending several days with his family for Christmas, so I won’t be around much during that time, though probably everyone will be busy with Christmas plans too ^^ If I don’t write again before then, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!! *hugs*

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord."
Luke 2:11

Thank You Mystery Promoter!!

So I just came on here, glanced over at my sidebar, and was like, “Wait a second...that’s my...Ah!!”

I have no idea who did this, but thank you SO much for promoting my Fire Emblem piece! It was a huge surprise and so sweet of you – I really appreciate it! Feel free to let me know who you are so I can thank you personally, but if you’re going anonymous then I really hope you see this. This means a lot to me! Thanks again!! ^_^
