Yeah so last week I had my assessment run and became a fully qualified (railway) conductor! No more trainee hat! A proper name badge! My own hole punch for ticket checking! :'D
Also that means I no longer have to turn up once a fortnight (I'm trying monthly for now), which is great because now I can focus more on the fun stuff (and studying) and actually having most of my Saturdays to myself again haha...
Which is good because now it's October and there's very little time left before exams in November!
Now art-wise... let's see.
RS has been taking up the majority of my focus I think. I actually joined the admin team for that and as much as I'd love to show you what I've been working on, you'll need to wait for the official news from the group. Sorry!
...oh wait, I'm also working on drawing a new ref for Artemis now that I've settled on a new outfit and 2nd weapon for her. Here's a WIP I put on tumblr:
Like with Artemis' redesign, there's a ranger quest I started and am yet to finish, though again actually sitting down and doing it is the hard part. I'm also becoming more and more paranoid about when the next round/mission are coming about, especially since it's now well past the timeframe between R6 and R7. I get that the admin team, particularly Taz have been hit hard by a strong case of 'offline woes', though when I budgeted to work on the round during my winter break and instead am now fearing the prospect of having that to contend against exams and end-of-semester assessments...
...I'm kinda hoping that since it's now past mid-semester break we get an official announcement saying it'll be released mid November. At least then I won't have exams to worry about. :c
In terms of Y3, I know they told us to wait for more news before we start making plans, however especially with the long wait I've been thinking of using the tourney to tell a character's story I've been thinking of for a while... yet the other day I came across an old OC who'd probably fit far more smoothly into an OCT. I'll wait and see for now I guess.
Though I bought Skyrim recently, some crash-to-desktop bugs means I haven't played it for a while. Instead I've started going through Valkyria Chronicles from scratch (finally figured out how to have multiple save files haaha) and Etrian Mystery Dungeon (which despite some faults is perfection in gaming form) so that's probably why I not as productive artistically as I could be uehehe. Hopefully I'll draw the rest of my guild from EMD though, maybe like what I did for 'Legends of the Titan'. (The leader, Colorata, you can see on the recent sketchdump I posted~)
Also I was going to do a 'Pokemon Adventure Challenge' blog for Alpha Sapphire, though through not wanting to see spoilers yet take my time through the game, I probably have missed that chance ueheheh. If I can pry myself off EMD long enough, I'd like to get down how my protag resolves the issues of the Delta Episode, so I can finally freely play the postgame content. Even if I've missed the bandwagon, I will eventually start running the PAC blog and if I can get to the end of that, then I'd like to move onto that Nuzlocke comic I've been planning for a while.
That's pretty much it for now I think.
Hope everyone has a safe October! Please lookout for misguidedly territorial birds this season! Especially Magpies!
