I cant believe someone did this

Well…
If this was already unlucky with the
Flooding that destroyed laminate flooring and ARTWORK! Omg!
And the frequent power outs for the first time in 10 years
But someone decided to break into our house the other day.

No, no nothing got stolen. I was home! It was not a good feeling at all.
At first I thought my brother had fallen in the shower and woke me up but no, 2 more loud bangs and I yelled for him and ran to the door. My dad got there first and the guy bolted from the house
My brother ran outside with a hammer chasing the man while hoping to get a look at him. He chased him for a few blocks and then lost him as he wasn’t going to run through bushes without shoes (it was also raining).

So the door…
Now dented, frame broken and fence knocked over needs repair. Great.
Not to mention time to fix it. So much for doing anything planned, so much for sleeping in or going to bed early.
Also… I don’t really know how or enjoy fixing these kinds of things, but no choice. We need a door. *sigh

Thankfully my dad is good with figuring this kind of thing out. My brother is ok with it and so am I, but nobody wants to…
I hope its not expensive to repair and shit… Stores aren’t open right now.
Dad is trying to get the door to semi close and my bro it trying to tell the police where the guy went / describe the guy.

I feel… Sad, frustrated, pissed off…
I mean… Why? Its supposed to be the start of a new year and then this. Man I just… I dont know.
What an asshole…

I almost never blog things but you know? Sometimes its nice to get it out. I mean, I would probably write this in a diary if I didn’t have this. It would the one and only entry lmao. I still have so many diaries from my childhood that are new. People thought I wanted one but I hated writing. I still dont really like it, I prefer to draw if you didnt know :p
Anyways this has nothing to do with the break in anymore. I should probably start looking up some kind of how to and check out prices for whatever we need to repair. * sigh, again sigh.
I hope they catch him . . .

Published Artwork

Hey guys,

Just wanted to share some great news with you.

I have had my artwork published as the cover of an erotic novel! Anyways I was pretty excited about it, just another step into the world of artwork.

It was a very interesting image to create and I got to use my comic book style of colouring which I rarely have the opportunity to do anymore (at least not much digitally). I also had the opportunity to do some erotic artwork which I also don’t do as much anymore (but would like to). Anyways, I am sure that some of you are wondering what the book/ Image is right?

Just so you know, it doesn’t not contain any nudity and all is explained in teh description with a link to the novel.

For obvious reason I am not going to post the image here but

if you are over the Age of 18 Feel free to give this link a click!

Gothorita fusion

So, fusing a boy into a much more feminine looking pokemon does pose a few challenges. He becomes a bit awkward, less fragile and yet needs to posses some feminine qualities.

 

Gothorita is also the teen for I guess, (2nd evo)

So I tried to make it younger, and a little bit girly, but also at this point he is embarrassed (this is the first time that it has happened in Argols story (to be posted at a later date).

this is also my first Gijinka in years and its so much fun to go back to with a little bit of a challenge.

 

For this one I’ve created a pretty school girl like, Gothic Lolita dress.  It matches the style and the colours of the pokemon and I think its looks pretty damn good.

 

You can even see the gothorita in the BG saying… hey… its ok.

But you will that later he gets used to this phenomenon.

 

 

Here is the pic, one with a glow and one without. I personally prefer the glow, but Argol did not so I’ve posted up both and you can decide fr yourself :3

Matt Gill

 

 

Matt Gill

This one was a lot of fun.
It’s a portrait of my friend. Then I stuck him in this world based off a description of his name we found on urban dictionary on day at lunch.
I think Matt would make an interesting movie dont you?

The description: A mythical Irishman who was said to have destroyed Superman’s home when he first synthesized Krypton in chemistry. Standing about five feet tall, Matt Gill can fly, shoot lazer beans from his eyes, drink any amount of beer, and turn any frisbee he touches into straight, heat-seeking, side-winding, and lazer-guided missles until they reach their intended targets.

Matt Gill commonly insists that he hasn’t drank, as less than 99 beers off the wall doesn’t even count in his book.

Matt Gill is an Omnihero, and as such can outrun any superhero. He eats gold and pisses rainbows, allowing him to follow the Yellow, Orange, Red, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet River to more gold, in a vicious cycle. Leprechauns worship him as their savior and upholder of Irish traditions.

When Matt Gill threw a frisbee the length of half a football field against the wind, and abruptly appeared to catch it with his left hand while not looking for a touchdown.
Thank you Urban dictionary  http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Matt%20Gill  . you are always so fun to look at!
Throw in some gold, a leprechaun, and a rainbow with Matt and Bam it all comes together!
But that Damn hat, did it ever cause me problems lol.
Matt got this as a Christmas gift, but committed a Christmas violation and opened it before Dec even started. Thankfully he didn’t eat all the chocolate form his Advent calendar. Lol, poor Matt, I get to make fun of him in his special blog >:)
But I think its ok, He is also my favorite Ginger, even if he’s the only one I know 😛

The Blue Pansy butterfly – Pencil Art

The Blue Pansy Butterfly

 

Just testing out my pencils and paper, it was a good learning exp, plus Butterflies are not easy to draw! Damn mirror image XD
Good to work with such a rich colour on paper again 🙂

 

 

So basically I wanted a somewhat simple butterfly that had some stunning colors. There are some very interesting ones out there but I chose this one for the vibrant blue, purple and orange. It creates a great contrast and will be perfect for testing out the blending of the color son the paper.

The blue pansy butterfly is a very pretty one 🙂

The Reference photo

 

 

To do a mirror image on paper, well its really quite a pain. I started by sketching out one side then scribbling reference lines all over it to try and get the correct proportions and angles on both sides.

The Draft

When I was happy with that I moved onto a new pencil line art fixing up the details of the pattern within the wings. I ended up doing just one side to get a feel for where the colors went and how the pattern should look. (you can see them in the gallery below) In the end it came out a bit different then the ref but I think I like it.

Here was the complete butterfly line work that I came up with.

Pattern correction

I was actually pretty happy with this piece, I got most of the shapes worked out.

I continued to do a quick graphite version, as I needed to test out the paper with both colors and graphite. ( I have never used this type of paper before). Actually it was not quick, it was pretty time consuming, what a pain to color a mirrored image even with the line work lol.

It went well but it was quite different then what I am used to. This paper holds the graphite very well and the blending doesn’t work the same for me.

The entire process can be seen below if you are interested. the entire… project, took a few days to complete over a course of I maybe 2 or 3 weeks as I didn’t work on it everyday. more of an on and off project in between, that thing called life.

enjoy

🙂

Sam’s 1,2,3 pokemon series

So…Way back 2010 I drew this

1,2,3 stack!
The original unforgettable starter Pokemon~!

A lot of people really liked this picture so I decided to draw some more with the 1,2,3.

I was surprised as it’s not really my best work, but I do like the colors and the idea!

It was as if you were holding a camera and told them 1 word or gave them 1 thing. How would they react?

I find them fun to do, and hey, who doesn’t enjoy fan art?
I am even considering doing a 4,5,6 (Gen 2) and a 7,8,9 (Gen 3). But that will be at a later time.

However, that would defiantly be the end of it, as double digits don’t sound as fun and I really don’t like the group of starter Pokemon after Gen 3. Actually there are a lot of Pokemon I hate from those generations… so I wont be drawing any of them grouped. At least not of my own free will.

Basically that’s all the 1,2,3 series is about, I hope to be doing more them soon.

For now, this is what I got.

6 needles to the arm – A bad day

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

 

Wow!

what a horrible exp I had today. Just in case you didn’t know, 3 shots really sucks to get at the same time.

In late Nov, I went to get an updated Tetanus Shot. The Dr. (forgot her name) convinced me instead, to get a Cervarix shot. The shot was the first of a series of three, so I would receive the tetanus shot on the follow up shot the next month and a half. The first was painful and my arm hurt for about a week. (Then again shots always  seem to cause me horrible pain in whichever arm I get it. My body does not like medicine).

Anyways, I tried to get an appointment at several clinic to get my 2nd shot and my tetanus. No luck for at least 1.5-3 months away…

Well, I can’t wait that long considering you have to get the 2nd shot within 2 months. Ridiculous!

So I went to the walk-in. They don’t take appointments and its always busy, great. Went in, signed up on the waiting list… went for a walk for an hour. It started raining of course. When I got back to the clinic I still had to sit another 45 mins, thank god I had my Ipad (I knew it would be a while to wait). I feel like I should have just gone home for an hour and then come back.

Finally I got to see the Dr. This was a much better Dr. then the first time. By that I mean it actually seemed like he cared about his patients. So I told him what I was there for and blah blah blah, meanwhile he also grabbed a flu shot. I have never had a flu shot so he felt this year I should get one as it includes H1N1 vaccine.

So… Cervarix shot, it kinda hurt
flu shot, nothing at all
tetanus shot, wow did that ever hurt, either way I never said anything but wow, I think I remember this shot from 10 years ago! the same horrible feeling.
Sat for about 5 mins, stood for while I got some paper work to go get some blood testing across the street around the corner.

After about 5 mins I was able to walk out the door without a problem, but,  a few steps out the door I started to feel severely ill.
I suddenly felt like I was going to throw up, I felt dizzy and had a headache. i took a few more steps and made it across the street and I felt like I had a fever. Then the scary part, my vision started to get really blurry. It was like your were looking through a windshield that had no wipers in heavy rain. It went from the outside of my vision like a circle going inwards, it was a horrible feeling. When my vision was all messed up my ears plugged up so I could barely hear anything.

At this point, I thought it would be best to turn around and walk to 25 feet back to the clinic. When I turned I felt so dizzy, like I was going to pass out. I had a hard time getting to the clinic, and crossing the street was extremely hard when all you can see are blurry drops of colour everywhere.

Finally I made it back to the counter and asked the lady if I could quickly ask the Dr a question. She told me to sit down and wait 5 minutes while she went to get him.

Sitting in the chair at this point was the hardest, and it was between two people which made it harder. So I finally get into the chair, and I sit. My hearing came back, then slowly my vision, and all I was left with was a horrible headache, a feeling like I have the flu and a very painful left arm. The Dr. comes and I tell him. it’s not a allergic reaction thankfully its just due to the fact that I had three shots all of which make people feel, not very good afterwards.

He even offered to buy me something from the store, juice or something to eat so I would feel better, I refused. the scary part is over. Was it ever a horrible 15 minutes!

Now onto the lab where I can get the blood test done. Thankfully I did not have to wait long and got a spot within 10 minutes. *sigh, but the lady I got, was learning. Of course!  She sits me down and gets some vials out, 3 of them, boy that makes me feel good when I already feel like crap. She moves my arm around (painful) and then gets the needle ready, cleans the… uh elbowpit (?) and sticks the needle in…
and moves it around…
wiggles is…
and jams it in farther in an attempt to find the vein.

Meanwhile I am having a great time watching all this…

Finally she asks for help, the other lady takes it out, gets a new needle and finds the vein much quicker. Though now that area is already hurting quite a bit. Back tot he new person, she fills the 3 vials and does, whatever they do while I hold the cotton ball on the bleeding area. When she comes back I expect to go…

O…

She missed one, she has to do it again.

So this time she goes for the back of the hand, you can see the vein here and you don’t need a lot this time. now this time the needle really hurt when she put it in (at least she found the vein). When she had filled it and went to remove the vial from the tube thing she let go of the needle. OUCH! She let it  fall and kind of hang there in my hand. That really hurt. I don’t even think she noticed and the other Dr. or whatever was like, “don’t do that, please hold the needle.” A little late!

and then she comes back again with another bottle… a really big bottle…
but  found was relieved when she said this is for a urine sample.

YES! PLEASE DO NOT STAB ME AGAIN! THANK  YOU!

Now I’m outside, its cold, I feel sick, its raining harder, and the dizzy feeling comes back…
I don’t even think I can make the 15 min walk to my house. I ended up calling my dad who was home, thank you! So he came to pick me up, so glad i didn’t drive.

About 2 hours later my mom had come as we had arranged to have dinner. We went out, I was not feeling the best but I was at the normal sick feeling of having a shot. We ordered these koreon chicken wraps that we had before. They came a bit different the usual but ok, lets try it. They were very good, however, they now added peanuts to the dish…

My mom is allergic to peanuts… and had eaten one now knowing it was there…

She was ok, as a small amount of a peanut is ok for her, not good but ok. If there was any other nut such as almond or walnut then there would be a serious problem. Thankfully there was not and they waitress too the food back and had it re-made without peanuts. The manager came out and apologized, yes they had changed the dish… but we also didn’t bother with a menu we usually get mostly the same things.

So that was annoying ad my mom had to be careful the rest of the night to make sure nothing happened. so overall not a good day.

Now I go to a store to pic up a few picture frames for some of my artwork. Found one I really liked, went to buy and and … the cashier, well he broke it. Nice.

 

 

So my whole day consisted of…
Getting soaked in he rain
waiting for a very long time
getting 3 shots (Horrible as is)
Feeling horrible
losing my vision and hearing for a while
almost passing out in the street
being a guinea pig for a person poking with a needle
another needle
a forgotten needle
Feeling like I am going to fall over while standing still
getting a dinner where my mom almost had a bad reaction to some peanuts
having the item I wanted to buy (the only one there) broken
and typing this  with one hand

Overall, I would say I have had a bad exp. Not fun at all…

indeed.

And yes, I know I didn’t have to type this, but for some reason I felt that this was actually something I could share, beacause really… I don’t often share my stories, and what sane person gets 3 shots in a day then decides that day to go have a blood test done? I’ll tell you, a person that does not want to wait aka me.

With that in mind I have a few great “Guy stories” that some of my guy friends have convinced me to share. Basically its like… “What not to do when you see a girl” type of story. But these, at least in my opinion, are not you average stories.
