I know nobody cares except us, but the plot is thickening with the Book of Air RP I'm in, and it's a lot of fun. I just wanted to share that.

Book Of Air Poster Flats

Recent Book of Air Art )

Onto something more of you will care about...

Cosplay Etc )

I think I'm going to take a cosplay props break tonight to read, participate in the RP (it's my turn next), and hopefully get a sketch or two online.


Upcoming events?
- Bianca's going away party on Thursday night, which honestly, I probably won't make. I've been burning the candle at both ends lately.
- Anime Conji Artist Alley/Dealer's Hall organizer one-on-one get our paperwork hashed out meeting (probably this weekend sometime).
- Anime Conji general staff meeting. Aug 15th, 3pm. (Someone wanting to be my AA minion assistant may be coming. Likely she'll be minion for both Barrie and I.)
- Mom & Richard visit in San Diego, Aug 22.
- My SoCali cosplay crew girls-day-out at DisneyLand, Sat. Aug 28.
- Fly out for D*Con, Weds Sept 1st 10:10pm--arrive ATL, Sept 2 11:52am.
elfgrove: (angry)
Oh fer cripes sakes.
Art's not online for five hours and...

I am ranting. Feel free to just skip ahead to the drawing at the end.

I get it. I would love a straight Young Justice cartoon version. But with names all tied up in existing TV franchises, a straight, true-to-the-original-comic ain't gonna happen. Even without copyright, YJ is full of absurd puns ("I am Mighty Endowed!" "What's her power?" "She... She has huge tracts of land!") and is more than a little dated ("Hanson Bites!"). I love it, but I know they have to update it for new audiences, heck, they have to update it for TV audiences.
The irrational hate for a series that only has a promo poster thus far because it is not an exact carbon copy of the original enrages me to no end. It's generally accepted that the animated universe is completely separate from the comics universe. They are different. Enjoy each for what it is.

I love Bart. I make no secret of the fact that he is my absolute favorite superhero. The rest of the Young Justice team usually follows close behind. And much as I love Bart, the Bart-fanbase annoys the shit out of me. I get along great with Flash fans, but the Bart-fans... *throttles*

Yes, he was fun as Impulse. He was not "completely ruined" or thrown "out of character" when he became Kid Flash. Get the hell over that. I like Bart as KF. I like Bart as Impulse. I like the idea of Bart as Flash, although the execution lacked a bit in expressing what I felt was at the core of the character. I still happily brag that Bart was the strongest speedster in the DCU until this recent nonsensical ret-con of the Speed Force originated with Barry. Two DCU speedsters, speedsters that run with him, pre-date Barry. So that's all manner of WTF.

I would also appreciate the yaoi fandom getting the hell away from YJ. They're kids! Why the heck are you slashing children!? CREEPERS. (I do not have a problem with yaoi or shonen-ai. There are certain ships I am quietly supportive of. But I do not get along with this crap directed at children. Pedophilia is still pedophilia, ya'll.) These yaoi fangirls tend to be the most vocal against Kid Flash!Bart. I don't even understand that. He's older more mature, and evidently no longer as slash-able because he shows canon interest in girls? Which would require you to ignore his canon crushes on Carol and Rose from his Impulse days. Whatevs.
I don't "ship" superheroes. I read stories about heroes and epic camaraderie. STEP OFF.

The only thing I share with the raging hate going about, is a very mild concern about the identities of two of the heroes. I wonder if the green-outfitted, blonde-haired gal is meant to be a take on the original YJ's Arrowette or a version of the Amazon, Artemis. And then I wonder if the green-eyed and red-haired Kid Flash is supposed to be Bart Allen or Wally West. The physical description matches Wally, the team appears to match Bart (brown hair and gold eyes).

Even if the characters aren't who I hope they are, I am STILL excited about the show, because it's GregFUCKINGWeisman, of whom I love his work.

So umm. Art block sucks.

But late last week, I posted my review of the movie DragonBall: Evolution. [livejournal.com profile] secondlina responded with her own, and we commented back and forth a little, and I now have a few short comics/illustrations in my head that I'll be trying to get out (yes, they're DBE & DBZ related). Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] secondlina for getting me drawing again.

Art is spoiler free.
On to TEH silly. )
elfgrove: (doom)
I have not been sleeping properly lately. It is wearing on me.

Okay. Still trying to get back into the art groove. (I want to get back drawing Schwane Zwei, CotND, and Gwarchiedwad.)

So I'm opening sketch requests again. Sketch requests are going to be like what you just saw that I just finished for the Slayers Friending Meme. This is pretty much first-come first-serve, but if you just got a sketch in the friending meme, there's a small risk that you might get bumped for someone I have not done a sketch for in a while. I'd say don't let that hold you back from making a new request though. The last time I did something like this with 10 slots, it never filled up.

    Request Rules!
  1. You must specify the fandom and character(s) you want.
  2. You must specify some sort of prompt. A single word or a 1~2 sentence idea of what you want to see.
  3. Max of two characters per sketch.
  4. One sketch per person.
  5. Keep it PG-13.
  6. Please don't make it overly complicated. I'm really just not that good.
  7. [Temporary(?) Rule] This is currently limited to the following fandoms: Slayers, Princess Tutu, Gurren Lagaan, Avatar:TLA**, Rayearth, InuYasha, Gunparade March, FFVII~X, FMA, Utena, Chrno Crusade, Kenshin, Hikaru no Go, Full Metal Panic, Ouran High School Host Club, Hana Kimi, Skip Beat, Library Wars, Ghost Hunt, and of course--any of my original characters/series.

I'll open it up to any fandom if the list doesn't fill up. OR, if you have an idea from another fandom, try me anyways, I'm flexible. I just want to keep it limited to shows I'm actually familar with. I'm trying to get back in the swing of drawing after extended breaks due to problems with my right hand; I'm not looking for major challenges or curve balls.
Also, in 12~24 hours or so I will open this up to people outside my FL, and post the offer to a couple of comms. OPENED UP.
**With Avatar, I have NOT watched the ending yet, please do not spoil me. Firebending Masters is the farthest I've seen.

Max number of requests (for now) is 20.
    Usernames and Requests:
  1. [livejournal.com profile] coppeliad - Fakir & Ahiru [Princess Tutu] Prompt: "PTT role reversal: Fakir as a duck and Ahiru as a knight!" - Filled

Her long purple hair was loose, and her green eyes sparkled above exotic dark cheekbones. She stood there with her shoulders back, no trace of the self-effacing slouch that Anshii had carried as the Rose Bride. Juri had always thought well of herself in a mirror, but compared to the regal appearance of Anshii... "It’s little wonder they hated you.""
  6. [livejournal.com profile] koneko - Saito/Louise ♥ [Zero No Tsukamia] Prompt: "You can just keep it simple; they can be cuddling or holding hands... and you can have Louise out of her cloak too, if you want!"

  10. [livejournal.com profile] shibamura_prime - Optimus Prima [Transformers] Prompt: "Need I say it? PRIMA. Being all happy and/or badass would be keen. Think of Abby when you draw her. I always do. ^_~"
  11. [livejournal.com profile] serika_san - Fakir/Ahiru [Princess Tutu] Prompt: "I always thought it'd be cute although very corny for Fakir and Ahiru to share a milkshake with the two straws in the one glass thing."

  14. [livejournal.com profile] tomoyoichijouji - Siegfried & Utena [Princess Tutu & Utena] Prompt: "As Prince Siegfried and Utena said goodbye, they clasped their hands in fellowship. Mytho said, 'I know that a fallen prince told you that a young woman like you couldn't be a prince. But I believe you truly have the heart of one.' I think those two might have a great camaraderie. ^_^"
  15. ShireKat - Fakir/Ahiru [Princess Tutu] Prompt: "Something funny/silly please, with Fakir/Ahiru pairing. Oh, and please include some awkwardness on Fakir and/or Ahiru's part ('cause that's what makes them so cute)."
  16. [livejournal.com profile] zenavvyREPEAT - Gourry & Pokota [Slayers] Prompt: "Sword of Light! Why no I didn't go to [livejournal.com profile] capslockslayers for ideas, really. <<"

  19. [livejournal.com profile] jadet_chan - Sousuke & Chidori [Full Metal Panic] Prompt: "They're reading/studying and Sousuke has dozed off. Maybe Chidori looking over at him bemused/fondly?"
  20. [livejournal.com profile] selphish - Sousuke & Chidori [Full Metal Panic] Prompt: "Halloween"

Requests now full. We have a couple of repeat requestors from the Slayers meme, so any additional requests would be bumping them. (As may be obvious by now, all comments here are being screened.)
Although, as [livejournal.com profile] eveshka is signed up as a trade for a writing a Lina/Zel fic for me, she cannot be bumped. Lina/Zel fic *joy* !

Bart Allen is my fluffy and adorable new puppy. Go figure. I'm adopting a Flash into my fandom loves. (Given, I liked him better as Impulse and Kid Flash than in his very short run as The Flash. 13 issues!?)

elfgrove: (never a princess)
Give me a fandom, character/pairing, and a prompt and I'll draw you a doodle.

Addendum: I have the right to veto anything I know that I'm going to be incapable of drawing--but don't be afraid to ask me to write a pairing I don't ship! The only time I'll veto a request is when I doubt my ability to do your character/pairing/prompt justice.

Feel free to make more than one request.
Just be sure to choose something from a fandom I'm familiar with. :)

I'll work through these as quickly as possible. Becky needs to get her art groove back.

I just drew a Princess Tutu sketch comic on DA. I think my brain is all mush. It's 3am. I call a lack of sanity for having done that one. (You have to have a DA account to see it, there's partial nudity, so I set the mature filter to on.)
elfgrove: (Default)
I'm reposting this in case anyone missed it before... The offer closes tonight at midnight California time (Pacific Time GMT -8).

I'd like to do art pieces for people over my Christmas holiday from work, so please make requests.
For sanity's sake, and since it's now an unlocked post, I'll probably max it out at 15, and you must identify yourself if posting anonymously(I know it's misspelled horribly, just not caring).

My goal is to have them all finished and posted when I return from holiday, so the 2nd or 3rd of January. Well, If I do what I'd like to for Meru, that'll be the first installment of it since I expect it to run long.

I've already promised one for Silas. And I emailed Meru asking if I could do something with her choosing the subject matter (selfishness on my part).

So make with the requests.
  1. [livejournal.com profile] shibamura_prime - Suki from Avatar: The Last Airbender
  2. [livejournal.com profile] aiuchi - fan comic (please choose?)
  3. [livejournal.com profile] asatira - Fai from Tsubasa Chronicles
  4. [livejournal.com profile] reverie_shadow - One of her original characters
  5. [livejournal.com profile] kagechi - a kitten(?)
  6. [livejournal.com profile] scottishfae - Mori from Ouran High School Host Club

If someone requested my address and I haven't given it yet, please say so in a comment with an email addy.
