<edit 8:15pm CST> Will be doing this again for a while in about ten minutes. I have nothing else to do but draw!


I haven't livestreamed in, what, a year? I never do it, but I figured why not. The worst that can happen is no one watches haha
Let's see if my computer can handle it -
It'll be up in a minute, and I'll be finishing up coloring my Mirela Djuric/the Trickster and might work on some other old Assassin's Creed fanart. 

Beware of weird music. 
Even though I've been home nearly a week, I haven't drawn anything, since this weekend is Anime Central.

My Alsoomse cosplay is almost 100% complete. I took it for a test run today at the con and found some things that need to be fixed such as: the shirt will show my bra, so that needs to be taken in at the top seam; the shawl needs to be pinned down so it won't slip off my shoulders; my hair needs more extensions to add volume. I actually need my hair to be longer as well, but I didn't have the money for super long, thick extensions.

If I go to Wizard World Chicago in August, I'll have better hair.

Tomorrow is the Assassin's Creed gathering, so I'll have some good photos after that.
Until then, here one my friend took of my as I was getting ready:

And I ran into a Connor.

I actually saw quite a few AC cosplayers. I'm excited for the gathering!
I was thinking about making a new account for cosplay, but I was thinking, I'm not a serious artist nor cosplayer. It's all for fun and I don't really care if this account has both. Also, I'd really like to upload my progress because that's all I've done this past month.
Yes, I do have some art to upload ^_^ Eventually. It's my Secret Santa gift, but I haven't colored it. The person it was for never responded when I sent it to them saying it's not finished, so I figured they didn't like it? So I'm going to take me time in coloring it, but for now it's all sewing.

Not that anyone cares, but I probably won't be updating that much over my Winter Break. I still don't have a tablet pen (though I did order one; it should be here between the 24th and 28th, but with it being Christmas, I don't know) and a lot of drawings I want to color before uploading. Also, I want to try out a new coloring style.
But I do have one drawing I need to get finished. I joined a Secret Santa and don't want to let anyone down, so maybe my pen will come early? Christmas miracle please? I also have to get three contest prizes from a group out to people :/
The rest of my time is spent making cosplays.
I really can't sew at college, I don't have the space for all my crap. So most has to be done at home, especially since the first con of the summer is literally three days after classes end. I have three cosplays to make. Well, two. One just needs to be fixed.
Not sure if this is even going to work…but I'll give it a shot.
I'm opening up some commissions because I reaaaallllyy need money. Typical poor college student that only works four hours a week, and while it's better than nothing, it ain't cuttin' it. I barely had enough money to buy my plane ticket home for Thanksgiving and Christmas break is shortly after… I can't even think about what Christmas gifts will cost -_-
So instead of complaining, let's get down to business!

1. :iconsilliad: - PAID; Done.
Two submissions with black and red.
Aaaah, I guess you can guess what colors I reeeaallly like (plus purple, but I haven't done anything in that yet :3)

I promise not all my deviations will be that color scheme. I do have some a-brewing that are actually quite colorful! It'll just be awhile until I get to them. My classes are really starting to pick up, and I start my job soon, and even though I'll only be working 4/6 hours a week, that's time I won't have for drawing.
I need to focus more on studying this year compared to last. I need my GPA to go up because I need a scholarship for moneymoneymoney if I want to study abroad spring/summer 2014.
I actually had something to upload, but then I realized my scanner won't work D:
It's wireless, so y'know, I thought I'd be able to connect to me school's internet with ease since I was able to connect to mine at home...Nope! You need to connect if to the computer first. And I don't have a printer USB. That comes separately!
I'm not sure when I'll make it to the store to purchase one, so I won't be able to update for a while.
Unless I do a 100% digital drawing, which I dunno. Don't really feel like it.
But maybe I will because I want to draw.
Just makes me want it year round now D:
One of these days I'll get enough money where I can spurge on something like that.
Instead, I spent my money on these:

It was buy five, get one free, so it turned out cheaper than buying the 6-pack.
I'm going to need quite a it of practice since I never learned out to properly color with markers hahaa. So who knows when I'll ever upload something using them. I only have skin tones anyway...Gotta start somewhere, though.
I have three more days of work, and then two weeks before I head back to college.
Ooohooho, two weeks already? Ha, just realized that... But in all honesty, packing won't take long, so I'll have a lot of time to draw.
So...there may be a lot of updates, if I can think of things to draw. If you guys want to give me some ideas, too, that'd be nice.
I only have about four ideas and that won't last two weeks!

- I used to write a lot of stories in middle school. One day I want to draw them out.
- I think I have an unhealthy obsession with Assassin's Creed?
- I also have an unhealthy obsession with languages. I love all of them. Except English...that's just a pain in the ass.
