Alright, so I've decided to start doing commissions. Hopefully this is something that won't overwhelm me.

DETAILS

If you are interested in commissioning me, send me an e-mail at jclfortune@hotmail.com. I can't do international commissions, so it'll be in the U.S. only. I'm accepting 3 commissions at a time. That's as much as I can handle right now, since college is in full swing.

PRICES

There are 3 types of (full color) commissions I'll be doing:

Bust: A simple head-and-shoulders picture of whatever character you wish. ($5.00)

Torso: An upper picture of whatever character you wish. ($5.50)

Full: A full picture (8 by 11 or larger) of whatever character you wish doing something. ($7.00)

RESTRICTIONS

No Homestuck. Hussie has requested some time ago that artists refrain from making money from Homestuck stuff, so yeah.

No yaoi/yuri/nudity/sexually-explicit stuff. Pretty self-explanatory.

No gore. Again, pretty self-explanatory.

CONTACT

Again, my e-mail is jclfortune@hotmail.com. I'll get started on your commission as soon as I can, since I'm balancing this, a night job, and college schoolwork. I accept payments by PayPal (not sure how it works; if there's a search thing, put my e-mail in there or 'Joseph Coburn'.). The commissions will be done digitally, so I'll e-mail you the progress (with the e-mail title being 'PROGRESS UPDATE')  I'm making on your commissions so that there's proof I'm not just stealing your money. Once I'm done, I'll e-mail the completed commission to you with the title 'COMPLETED'. If it's not to your satisfaction, I'll be more than happy to give you a refund as well as an apology.

Alright, so...tomorrow morning, my family and I are flying out to Jamaica for my grandmother's funeral on Monday. She passed away on Tuesday, and we finalized everything yesterday. I won't be online until Tuesday evening, since that's when we'll be back. So...yeah.

....I haven't drawn anything in a couple of days. I should fix that. Even if it is just pencil sketches or W.I.P.s or full drawings or just drawings that I abandon due to not looking like I wanted.....I should start posting all of that.

I really don't feel like drawing right now. Like, at all. But there's nothing else for me to do. I have two outstanding things to work on, an art collaboration with my girlfriend to start, and a bunch of character designs to finalize. But I just do not feel like doing any of things.

…what do you guys think I should do?
  • Mood: Tired

Urgh. Alright. Let's talk about something I'm working on.

The main thing I'm working on right now is something I'm calling the Elder Saga. It's a pretty huge story and I've just barely started doing character designs. When I say it's a huge story, I'm not joking. It's really ambitious, and I'd really like to do it and get it out there. I've been practicing with my art in Sai and I think I've gotten somewhere a little bit. So over the next few days I'll be doing up characters from it so that you guys can see them. I'm taking a semester long break from college (6 months) so that's PLENTY of time to do stuff.

Right.

The second thing I'm working on is a superhero type thing called Meteor Men. It's smaller and doesn't really have an end at this point, but it's easier to deal with than the Elder Saga. So sometimes I'll post stuff from it every now and then.

Okay.

In the middle of all this, I'll be taking requests from anyone who wants them. Just ask on my page or drop me a note and we'll get down to business. Just...no yaoi, yuri, bondage, or stuff like that okay?

Specific Types of Requests:

Shoulder-up Busts
Waist-up Busts
Full Body Pictures

And that's all for that for now.

Yeah.....it's been like, what, a year since I last updated anything here? Fuck me running.

well

I'm clearly alive.

I just haven't uploaded anything because I'm a lazy bastard. And I've been reading Homestuck because :iconminiatureowl: made me do it.

shit

For those who haven't read Homestuck...it's like Doctor Who.

on crack.

seriously holy shit

you may see a slew of fanart....gonna try to keep it at one pic though.

(might not happen but whatever)

i digress

I'm still drawing. Finally managed to settle on a style somewhere between realistic and cartoonish.

seriously do you have any idea how hard it is to kick years of anime influence starting with DBZ?

it's like trying to kick years of anime influence starting with DBZ



(see what i did there i made that shitty joke that isn't even a joke that no one cares about)

REAL TALK

So, I recently just dodged a major bullet. All I will say is, never again. NEVER. AGAIN.

Yep. Gonna start working on Galaxy Warrior (that's the graphic novel. Shut up, I like the name.) soon, amidst practicing coloring with Sai and general research.

ANIME

The new ones are CRAP. I'm talking Naruto, Bleach, and whatnots. I say this because a year ago or so I gave up on manga and anime because it was becoming a REALLY negative influence on my art style. No seriously. At first it was all like, hey this is pretty cool, but then went to OH MY GOD I CAN'T DRAW PEOPLE. So yeah. I still don't read manga, but I'm looking into some old school anime. (I'm well aware Gurren Lagann isn't old school, but it has that vibe, ya know?) Some of the ones I'm interested in and trying to find full episodes are:

Getter Robo
Mazinger Z
Gunbuster
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Honey Cutie
GaoGaiGar
Space Pirate Captain Harlock
Cowboy Bebop
Fist of The North Star
Nausicaa of The Valley Of The Wind


Any suggestions are welcome. BUT KEEP THEM OLD SCHOOL.

I'm thinking- no, scratch that- GOING to make a graphic novel. I already have an idea. That Black Over White promo piece I did recently? Yeah, that's the one. I already have most of the major plot points fleshed out, all the characters and shit, so what's to stop me? Right? (Ok, besides me.)

I recently got a tablet and paint tool Sai, so you should see a jump in my art quality sometime next week.

I'm doing this.

REAL LIFE

I recently got a job at the Kroger down the street from my home. I now cut up meat and cheese for a living, so yeah. However, I'm supposed to have Fridays off, which I don't this week. Also, finals are kicking my ass, and I need to kick ass back, so updates are on hold. So, I'm sorry, but He Who Punches Dragons In The Face will be updated whenever I get the chance.

REVELATIONS

I'm moving to another house.

Let me explain.

The house my family lives in now was owned by someone else. However, they got foreclosed on, and decided to give up this house....which they told us after basically stealing our rent after they got the news. No worries; we've found a new house, so all we have to do now is sign the contract, pay the money, and move in. Which we will do in 45 days. And we will actually own that house.

Unfortunately I'll still be sharing a room with my brother. Maybe. My mom keeps hinting at a secret surprise.

OTHER NEWS

I hate small children.

However, yesterday, (and I hope to HIGH HEAVEN my girlfriend doesn't read this part) at real work, this small little girl asked for a cookie. Which I gave to her for free. (Meh. The bakery was closed.) My heart kinda went "D'AWWWWWW". KINDA.

I still hate black women though.

So, here's the thing.

I've been working on a superhero-style webcomic. I've actually finished the pencils of the first part (of three) of the prequel comic that kind of explains how the powers got to Earth in the first place.

The main characters' powers have all been decided. But here's the thing: all the powers have a weakness that makes actual sense. For example, there's a flying brick who doesn't have superspeed. He can still fly, but only as fast as he can actually run. The others, I'm having trouble with. I'll post some of them so you can help me out.

*One metahuman has an ability that makes him stronger the more pain he's in. What I have is that he can still be knocked out or killed by the pain. How does that sound?

*Another has the ability of total invincibility while in motion. There has to be a loophole somewhere.

*One more: this one has a healing factor. I was thinking maybe the same deal as the first meta I listed.

What do you guys think?

So today I was thinking about how I need to get my shit together. Schoolwork, actually starting that friggin' webcomic....and getting in shape. Because I'm kinda not in good shape. So yeah. I decided to jump some rope, you know, get back in the swing of things, 'cuz I was like, "It's jump rope, how hard could it be?"

well

Turns out you need a lot of space to do said jump roping. Also, it'll kinda thwack on the backs of your legs if you don't time it right. Also...you'll kinda look like a retarded 2 year old. So I was all like, "Yeah, this isn't working."

then in a BRILLIANT STROKE OF GENIUS *note the heavy sarcasm*

i decided to lift weights instead. Because, you know, how hard could it be?

well

VERY FUCKING HARD IF YOU AREN'T READY FOR IT

I decided to try curling two weights with 2 1/2 lbs on them. What I DIDN'T realize was that there were actually 4 OF THEM ON EACH BAR. So, I was actually curling 20 lbs.

20 lbs. That's as much as my girlfriend's morbidly obese cat. I was not prepared for that. No-hoooooo.

Let me put it this way

You know how when you start something and you're all like, "Pssssh i can do this"?

And then it laughs and kicks your ass, then kicks you in the balls while you're on the floor and laughs even harder?

Multiply that by 100. You'll be about halfway there to realizing how in over my head I was when I naively said, "I can lift weights!"

still

Gotta lose that weight. Gotta want it.

So I'm actually finally working on a webcomic. I know, shocking. But what I was thinking that I could make another account and post the raw pencils there.

What do you guys think?

So, a little backstory first:

I went to the comic shop today to try and get a job (and buy some comics.). I picked a copy of Invincible and Ultimate Spider-Man so I could have another legitimate reason to be in there. The guy who was usually there wasn't, so I talked to the guy filling in.

He said that no, the owner (the usual guy) still wasn't hiring, and confessed that he was just helping out on Sundays.

I said Ok, and made my purchase.

I got home, and on the back of the Invincible comic I picked up was an address for website: skyboundent.com

I went there, and was floored.

It's a wing of Image Comics that's looking for up and coming artists and creators. In their words:

"SKYBOUND is an all-new imprint of Image Comics that provides a new generation of comic book creators the opportunity to publish their original works."

You guys, this is AMAZING. I mean, I have no idea if they'll accept my stuff, me being a freshman in college, but holy SHIT, this is just...this is AWESOME.

Well, yesterday, I brought my laptop in to my friend (The Net Critic. Don't know him? Go here: thenetcritic.com) to see if he could help. We managed to get rid of the actual virus and infected files, but the User Profile Service is still f***ed up. So, I'm stuck in Safe Mode until my dad can scrape together enough money to buy me a new laptop. :I

I really need to find a job.

Anyway, I learned in the process that I can still upload stuff in Safe Mode, which means I can upload art. So, be on the lookout for some new art, starting Valentine's Day.

Yup.

Next off, I'm considering...ok, am going to start playing Magic: The Gathering. Perhaps starting with a basic Blue Deck, and then supplementing it with White cards. Anybody who plays Magic that wants to give me some advice on it is free to do so.
