I'm starting to kick the sickness out of me. In this aspect, I am winning.
In a move that surprised many, I went ahead and reserved (and paid in full) a Nintendo 3DS and Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition. I got a little wary that there would be a shortage much like the Wii, and that it would be an exclusive item for months from now. It probably won't be a shortage as long as the Wii, but still. So all I have to do is go by on the 27th and pick it up.
Tomorrow morning I'm gonna go get Pokemon White though. it's something I DIDN'T reserve, but I saw no need to. There were plenty
of copies of Diamond and Pearl to go around. This isn't '96 or '00. The craze is over and Nintendo is prepared.
But I'm not particularly happy about all this. I mean, after all, all that money came out of my
pocket. I had no help, and with no income, it doesn't sting, it hurts. So I'll have to spend the next few months rebuilding my funds the best I can.
I still plan on spending my SwagBucks/CheckPoints money on my manga though. I just ran out of Bleach (finished volume 27) so I'm itching to order more, but I don't have quite enough yet. I should have enough in a couple weeks though.
You can get to and sign up for Swagbucks here: [link]
, and if you're wondering what CheckPoints is, you have to have a smartphone or iPad. Search for it in the app store, and when you download it and set up your account, use promo code TNWNC
and you'll get enough starter points for a free gift card. Basically what it is is a shopping app. You scan bar codes with it to get points and coins. Coins can be use to earn even more points, and points can be used to redeem prizes. I've already gotten a good chunk of money from it, so I encourage the use of it. Just be careful, the app is a little unstable and can suck at times, so it's good to have an app killer on hand to terminate it and start over if something isn't responding.
Advertising aside, I'm glad I could upload Samus tonight. I think I could've done a better job, but I didn't anticipate getting sick. The sickness makes me feel like not drawing, and the meds make me feel like.. not drawing, lol. So while I felt good I thought it would be now or never.
I'm going to proceed back to the practice drawings though and get Bleach villains #4 and #5 out of the way. I also got another smallish sketchbook that I'm gonna try something somewhat new with, but that'll take a bit of time so I'm gonna save that for later.I'm gonna do a couple more eye stock photos soon so keep an eye out for those as well.
All in all, I'm feeling better. But I still wish to focus on my art and keep it real, so sorry if I don't respond or comment. That phase isn't important to me right now as it used to be in the past.
I'm also off of my anti-depression meds since I got sick. Can't really tell anything different except I want to chop your head off more. :3
That's all for now, thanks for all the positive comments, I really appreciate them.
Also, Tiger blood.
