No post today, guys. I was up till around 2am last night helping some folks to shear their new llama(I will try to find phone kinda sucks for that kind of thing and I forgot my camera at home), and then went to a family cook out at noon today. There was also a trip to the thrift store, which was fun. However, I am wiped out. All I want to do is play some Sims 3, cuddle with my husband, work on some art, and do some book edits before I crash for the night.

And on that note, I'll catch you later. There may be a wordless wednesday post this week, but I make no promises as the art I'm working on right now is fighting me. 

Maybe I'll post llama photos instead. Hm....>_>

Wordless Wednesday: The equine version

Because I haven't been able to find a moment to do some actual art, here are a few of my older pieces I haven't shared before. Except for the last one. He's new :D

Short and Sweet

I hope you guys don't mind, but I'm going to keep this one pretty brief. I'm actively editting chapter twenty-nine now, and scribbling notes for the new scenes I'm going to drop in to replace some old ones. You see, it's mentioned several times about how dangerous Underhill is....and then chapter twenty-nine is so TAME.

Ugh, must fix that one...>_>

I've been poking at it and now there are a group of unhappy naga to spice things up. Originally we don't see any of their kind till book two, but it fits very well, so why not?

It does mean I need to get that one naga prince drawing done. He still doesn't have a name, but he does play a part now. It would be incredibly nifty if I could add a few pictures to my finished work when it's published(which is a looong way off right now as I don't even have a query letter written, much less an agent waiting in the wings). I might as well start somewhere, right? :D

Alrighty then, I'm off to sort out those new scenes and play with my new art supplies. I already have one finished piece to show you guys on wednesday and I hope to have more. I guess we'll just have to see what happens. ;)

Why I didn't post a wordless wednesday...

Yes, I know I forgot to post yesterday, but I have a reason for the lack of a wordless wednesday. 

My birthday package arrived.

I've been waiting to order these for a while, so without further ado, I'll leave you with these pictures while I go catch up on old art projects and play with my new toys.

Enjoy. :D

I got the smaller one :)

I got the 24 count, but they don't have a picture for it.

I only got four colors. So expensive!

I just replaced colors I had almost used up. I already have this tin :D

For those of you who want to know...You can find all these things and more at, the best place to find good art supplies for an affordable price. Well...for the most part, anyway. :)

Anywho, I'm off to enjoy my birthday spoils.

Happy Mother's Day

There is no other way to say it: I am beat. 

No, I don't mean I've given up on anything, just that I'm in serious need of some real sleep. Actually being able to eat breakfast might help too. The past couple days have been a mad scramble to get to work on time, followed by a complete and total system's crash at the day's end.

So between my complete lack of energy, and the fact it is Mother's Day today, I think I'll spend the day working on my gift for my mom. That, and scribbling notes and such as I continue to review chapter twenty-nine and figure out what it needs done. It's been a crazy week, and I think I've earned some time with pencils and paints.

In the meantime, I want to wish a happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there. Today is your day and I hope it's a good one. :)

Wordless Wednesday

It's been crazy lately, I won't lie. However, this means I haven't had time to do much more then doodle. I have one finished piece to share with you guys and hope to have many more next wednesday. This was done on pastel board with pastel pencils. It's not my usual medium or subject matter, but it didn't turn out half bad. I like it anyway, and so does the person who let me use one of her photographs as a reference. I hope you like it too, and I'll try to have more to share next time.:)

Break time!

Chapter twenty-eight is finally done! I'll be sending it out to a couple beta readers within the next few days for final tweaking, but for now, it's done.


Out of morbid curiosity I went back through my old blog posts to see just how long I'd been working on this darned thing. The answer? Longer then I've ever spent on one chapter by about several months. As my birthday is right around the corner, I won't have this book done by then(darn it), but this summer is looking pretty promising for beginning book two(which is still without a title...ugh). I now have just two chapters left to tweak(and a new scene to write for one of them), and then I'm done with "New Beginnings" for a while. 

Of course, I'll still need to do another round or two of edits to trim out extra words and such. But for now it is done.

On that note, I'm off to work on a few art projects and catch up on some much neglected reading. My three day break officially starts today, so work on chapter twenty-nine will begin wednesday. I hope to have another art post that day, so I better get cracking.

Wordless Wednesday sketch dump

For those of you who wonder, here's a taste of what I've been doing this past week between edits. From sketches, to Works-In-Progress, to finished product. I hope you like them. :)
