I'm just going to be rewriting this same journal entry over and over until the end of time to keep both the latest news and the Index on the main page. Someday I'll figure out a better system for Indexing the characters, lol :shrug:

Time for the Year End update! Feels weird that the last one was done in July or August or so, it doesn't feel that long ago at all, haha! Just a gathering of what I'm doing right now, future plans, etc. (As if I have any clue, ahyuk. :V) I'm finally catching up on a lot of comments in my inbox too. Sorry if I've made you wait a long time, I don't mean anything by it, I'm just busy and scatterbrained!

Real Life


Let's start with Real Life this time because that's basically all I've been doing for the last 5 months.

I'm still going at the Computer Science major at my college. This semester was long and I hated it, but I did better in my classes than I previously had. I was retaking 3 out of 4 classes and improved a lot in all of them. I'm close to being finished, and while I really can't stand programming, I still feel really good about learning other IT-related stuff outside of school, like hardware, operating systems, troubleshooting, stuff like that. It looks like I'm going to miss my goal of being ready for the A+ exams by the end of December, since I had to shelve my studies for that during the semester. Basically EVERYTHING got shelved this semester besides school work. Now I'm not sure what to do, since the new A+ exams should be coming out sometime during 2015. I know for sure that I want to take and pass them, but now it's a question of which and when. I guess we'll see- whenever I'm ready is when I'll take them!

Still at the same job as before, but I still really enjoy it. I'm happy where I am right now, so no complaints. It's completely unrelated to either art or computer science so I think after 2015 I'll be looking into finding something else and actually getting into one of those fields. But it's good for where I'm at in my studies now.

This half-year was rife with family tension, but fortunately a lot of it has eased up since Christmas. Been trying hard to mend bridges with various family members, but my family's got more issues than my Archie Sonic collection. It's going to be a slow and sometimes uncomfortable process, but at least it's in motion. It's getting better.

Back in September/October I had to read some book about virtual relationships for an assignment and REALLY enjoyed it, so since then I've been getting back into reading paper books after having trouble reading them for years and years. (They always made me sleepy and I could never focus on what I was reading.) So far I've read Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro and started on the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. I'm also plucking at a couple other books at the same time, but those are the primary two this semester. I'm trying to make it a thing that I can get through at least one book each month. It sounds really minor, but it's really great stress relief. A better way to wind down than staring at a glowing screen all the time. Picture of Dorian Gray, Count of Monte Cristo, and Dune are all queued up after Eye of the World is finished. 

Goals for 2015? Finish school- only one more year left to be done with this major. Pass A+ exams. Have a complete art portfolio. Be more involved with family and friends. Read at least one book a month. Get driver's license.

2014 was NOT a great year for me. Wasn't the worst- 2013 was the worst. But I definitely have a good feeling about 2015. I think it's gonna be a lot better. AND I CAN PROVE IT. You know why? CRISPY M&M'S ARE COMING BACK TO AMERICA IN 2015. HECK YEAH.

Sonic Fancomic Project


This has not budged since my last journal. ...Well, that's not completely true. I did get a little more written for the beginning of it, but a very negligible amount. Mostly I just made iTunes playlists for each part of the story, and that's about all the progress I've made in the last five months. :V

I'm wanting to get back into it though, just focus on working out the details for that beginning part so I can get started on it finally. It's not a priority right now, so I don't expect anything major to be completed until next summer at the earliest. It would be good practice though. I have an 'issue 0' written that's not a part of the story exactly, but sets up where everyone is at the beginning and gives me some stuff to practice on. Might try to get that done while I'm still on winter break, but then it'll probably be a long time before I can get to the next issue. We'll see. This project is very on hiatus right now.

Human Archie Sonic Project


Another thing that unfortunately got shelved this semester. I am fully intent on completing this project though, and I'll be contributing more to it whenever I can. I'm still drawing the characters in my notes from time to time, I just haven't had the time to sit down and make any nice color versions on the computer. This project is NOT on hiatus, it's just... sloooooooow.

----

Eye of the World Project


I'm 200 pages into the book now, so I'm really falling behind on my goal of 3 characters/doodles per chapter. I've been doing sketches and gathering references for most characters though, so as soon as I have time I'll be catching up on those. I have lots of ideas for these characters, I just want to draw them all!

Other Projects


I need to finish those mini comics I started: Nightmare w/ Shard and Chuck, the Relic and Eclipse one. I haven't forgotten about either of them.

I have some design prompt things from tumblr that I never scanned in that I intend to finish and upload.

I've been retooling an old story of mine from high school into something totally new and different. That's a personal project I'd like to dig into more at some point, after everything else is taken care of. But don't be surprised if it crops up as something I begin uploading art of. (LOL this stupid story originated like ten years ago, as a Boy Meets World self-insert fanfic. Then it was a fantasy cross-dressing harem shoujo. Now it's like some diesel punk war story. I wonder how many more incarnations it's going to go through before it's finally made.)

And I really, really want to draw some of the weird stuff that's come out of Tomodachi Life. Omega/Thunderbolt ship? Yes plz.

Completely Unrelated to Anything


In the past five months I've mostly been playing Hyrule Warriors, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, and now I'm back to Tomodachi Life after a long break from it. I also built New Castle Acorn in Minecraft this weekend, so there's that too. :V

Hyrule Warriors: More fun than I expected it to be, easily my favorite game on the Wii U. So much content it'll take forever to finish it all, and so addicting I have to force myself to stop playing it. Definitely worth a look if you have a Wii U. I'm not even that big of a Zelda fan, but it's darn fun.

Alpha Sapphire: Did my first Wonder Trade run, where I wonder traded away my first six pokemon and had to stick with whatever I got. Ended up with an Inkay, Numel, Vennipede, Bidoof, Rhyhorn, and Marrill. Made the game stupidly easy and I cheesed my way to the end, but I really got attached to those six pokemon like I haven't ever before. I want to put them someplace safe and then do it all again with a new random team. x3

Tomodachi Life: This game isn't even fun. It was quirky at first, but now it's the same thing over and over. Why am I here? Why am I still playing this game? I just want them to get married and make babies. Is that so much to ask? I need crack ship babies. I NEED BABIES

Watching more anime again since I've had some free time. Started with Full Metal Alchemist a few weeks ago. I'm intrigued by Brotherhood, but I want to finish the first one first, since I never did when I was still watching it on Adult Swim. It's really not as good as I remember it being, haha! Ah, but I still like it enough. 7+ years will give you some powerful rose colored glasses though, I guess. Still want to finish Haikyuu! and a few others.

I don't remember if I had discovered it last journal or not, but I don't think so. I think it was in October I stumbled across this webcomic that really inspired me: Stand Still, Stay Silent. It's so beautiful, and the characters very lovable. It's really starting to pick up now, too. When I first read it, I remember thinking to myself- this is what I want to do. I want to make comics as beautiful and engrossing as this. Updates frequently too! Definitely one of my favorite webcomics, if not THE favorite.

Really really into fashion at the moment. I'm enjoying it more than I ever have. Probably nothing will come from it, but I thought I'd share. I'm sinking a lot of time into looking at fashion shows and collections lately. I dig it.

Eh. 2014. It was okay. There's a lot of things I want to do, but real life obligations come first. That's about the sum of it.

But 2015 will be better. I'll do better.

See you all in the new year!

List of all the human Archie Sonic characters with links to the ones I've completed so far, and my progress on the ones that I haven't. Because I like lists and this will make it easier for everyone to find their favorite characters. :icondummywooplz:

(No more dots. I got something in mind for almost everyone now and they'll get drawn when they get drawn)

That's everyone who matters and then some. Once more of this is completed, I may go back and add more obscure characters for the sake of completion. But for now this is it.

Cripes that's a lot of characters.

Sure, but credit somewhere would be appreciated if it's very close to the original. :>

You're talking about their looks and not the actual artwork, correct? I just want to clarify.
