oatmeal_queen: (copic eat babies)
hello there internet :)

i know, i know, it's been ages, and i'm sorry about the large gap in between posts, but unfortunately it was for a few personal, irritating reasons. (and just may i say, for the lawyer who is currently stalking my LJ? eat me. no, srsly, kiss my ass and find someone else to bother. i'm through being concerned over your problems. eat a bag of dicks.)

so anyway, in all better news, things have been pretty well for me :) i'll recap later, this post happens to be for the purpose of a proposal of sorts.

most of you who know me, also know that i avoid doing commissions at all costs. not because i hate them, per se, i actually quite enjoying drawing for others, but because i feel bad charging for it and can be fairly lame when it comes to finishing them. now i know, boo hoo, what an issue, but srsly, i have a hard time with this sometimes, so therefore i avoid it.

that being said, one of my oldest and most bestest friends is going through horrible financial issues right now, and nothing seems to be getting any better anytime soon :( she lost her job last year, is in debt up to her ears, shares the deed of a house with a husband she's trying to divorce who also has no job and no money, and she's trying to be in school at the same time.
yikes.
i hate seeing what life is doing to her right now, especially since i've been so blessed recently. tho despite being poor myself, i don't have a money sucking anchor of a husband, crazy debt or a severely low paying job like she does. she's living with my mother, the poor thing.

anyway, tl;dr, i'm going to try doing what i can by seeing if there is any interest in art commissions out there. i'm talking to all my fellow fangirls out there in LJ land, would any of you be interested in commissioning me for art? i could do sketches, inked, full color, multiple characters (not so great with backgrounds), multiple fandoms, slash, fluff, (any nc-17 stuff would have to be negotiated to see if i can do it, but you're welcome to ask) and original characters with good descriptions/references. srsly, try me.

is there any interest at all? i'm also willing to offer prints of any of my existing stuff. i have art throughout a few different fandoms of supernatural, fullmetal alchemist, sailor moon, and a ton of original angel characters.

if there IS an interest, i can lay out pricing and reasonable timelines for both the drawings and the prints, but i'd like to know i could actually pull this off reasonably. I really, REALLY want to help my friend, but without commissions, i don't have much to give :( i don't mean to use the sympathy card, if really, this is the first time i've ever truly asked, but it really is for a friend in need. i think that's worth a little expended effort on my behalf.

what say you? commission me so i can help my friend? anyone? :3

oh hai distraction )

One of these days i'll actually get around to finishing the Golden Compass books. *stares at dusty bookshelf* among other things.

In other news, fanfiction is an amazing distraction for a whole lotta awful. now if only i could get my stupid ass to WRITE IT, i might avoid a last minute panic next week.
*coughs* lets see how long those good intentions last me -.-
I'm srsly LOLing at myself right now for reading Legion fanfic, but damnit, it's better than the movie. more Gabe/Mike plz, i miss my own.

and of course, my heart goes out to my poor [livejournal.com profile] fauxfaia. <3 u bb, i'm here if you need me and you know it. day or night.
oatmeal_queen: (suck at photoshop)
So this week is actually shaping up to be better than last. thankyou, whatever deity may be out there, cause srsly, i couldn't take another train wreck like that.

my apartment is back to...i wanna say decent working order? i guess? the complex was apparently under the assumption that if you had your place sprayed for bugs once, having moved everything you own away from the walls and into the middle of the damn room, you would then of course KEEP IT ALL THERE FOR THREE WEEKS FOR WHEN THEY COME BACK.
which is ludicrous. srsly. i live in a one bedroom place with a decent amount of belongings, and there's no way in hell i could live that way for three weeks. fuck that. and i told them this, since they neglected to give me any kind of information after it was done as to whether or not i had the all clear. assholes. your wormy apologies make nothing better, especially since all of the bugs came from my stupid neighbors who brought them in then had the audacity to complain about it.
my ratties and my fish are still over at M's place and i miss them @.@

they finally fixed the ceiling fan-o-death in my breakfast nook (no, really, it sounded like the kind of fan you'd hear at the end of a horror movie where the protagonist is trying his damnedest to knock the killer into it and save the world. loud metal on metal screeching, it was amazingly terrifying.) but my dishwasher apparently needs a part ordered so that it drains correctly, and is not fixed yet. i'll take what i can get at this point.

the commissions i'm doing for this year's Asylum conventions* (note the plural) are NEARLY DONE OMGYAY. even with all the crap going on, i still managed to work my ass off for this crazy deadline and i cannot wait til i get through it. SO.CLOSE.NGGGGGGHHHH.
my writing muse has been niggling at the back of my head this whole time tho, and i fear the day she becomes impossible to ignore. one more week, that's all i ask, then i'll slash things, i promise.

my awesome boyfriend gave me Left 4 Dead 2 and i can't even touch it yet cause of all the crap i have due. ;___; May is gonna be nutz.

got an email from the guys who're sending me my first issue of the Last Unicorn comic, apologizing cause its late in coming. of which, i'm ok with this, cause i forgot i pre-ordered it to begin with. so yay for things i forgot to be annoyed with!

'Dirty Jobs' is an odd show to listen to at work more than watch. At least i have a decent constitution and am entertained enough to keep playing them tho, cause damn...ew.
but i ran out of mythbusters.

its almost May! gah, there really aren't enough non-sleeping hours in the day.
cheers to a better week.

oh, and amusing work convo is amusing. )
oatmeal_queen: (spn - sam phone wtf)


totally made my afternoon.

which is nice, cause not only do i have this crazy commission to finish, but now apparently i have to upheave the entirety of my apartment tonight because they brought a dog in and he found a bedbug. all before i leave for hagerstown this weekend cause my mother is doing a church play and if i'm not there she'll guilt me forever. FML.

MAKE IT BETTER, WALKEN.

at least its thursday ;.;
oatmeal_queen: (httyd - toothless grin)

oatmeal_queen: (captain apocolypse)
For all the Supernatural nerds on my f-list...
this isn't really a spoiler, although the most recent episode kinda made me notice this more than before...(thanks M)

Do the angels feel like Turks to anyone else? I mean, the suits, the weapons, how they all seem to be body guards...Public Safety Division of Heaven? y/n?

Just sayin.
I love when my nerdoms collide. X)

SO MUCH DRAWING GOING ON RIGHT NOW, I DON'T EVEN KNOW.
this commission is going to be the death of me x__x
oh, and in conclusion:
[livejournal.com profile] dauntdraws! you are amazing and i want your babies.

this is what happens when i don't get sleep.
oatmeal_queen: (worf says shuddup)
I'm alive, I swear.

I apologize to my flist for my recent silence, but RL has been FORCING ME TO PAY ATTENTION TO IT like an angry little pet. The kind of pet that'll mess up the carpet if you don't stop what you're doing RIGHT NOW.

there are...like...a million people i need to reply to, send stuff to, talk to, and basically all around show some sign of life to...but haven't. Cause i'm a slacker. BUT I'M WORKIN ON IT. promise :3 took me awhile to get the internet set up, that's all.

the new place has heat (woo!), sanctuary, my new awesome fishy Lucifer (cheeky little fish too), and far less boxes than it did a few weeks ago. I even got my hands on an awesome cage so that i can finally start the process of adopting ratties <3
I've also been drawing again (gleee) and writing like crazy because my muse showed up at the last possible minute and i have me some Dean/Cas fic exchange to finish before the deadline this weekend x__x gah.

which, btw, is there anyone from the SPN fandom on my flist that would be interested in doing a speed beta for me? @__@ last minute, i know, and i'm not even done yet, but another set of eyes would be a tremendous help. ([livejournal.com profile] morgainlefay, i'm totally gonna be hitting you up if i can't find anyone. you rock socks, i hope you know)

A special thankyew to [livejournal.com profile] dauntdraws for the V-day present! <3 (thankyou sweetheart, you totally didn't have to. they were balloons!)

Forgive me [livejournal.com profile] eldanis! i didn't mean to tease you for this long! sorry i missed you at Katsu too <3 i do have art to share, promise.

and thus, back to writing with me. i colored a bit tonight at art jam, which was awesome and i missed it like whoah, but i have GOT to GET this DONE. x_x
(this post officially has little to no content. please leave a message at the beep)

[livejournal.com profile] happytemplar got her hands on the new Silent Hill game for the Wii, and even though I've only caught a little of it so far, it is already just creepy enough to keep me interested. well played, evil town =_= we meet yet again.
and oh, the ideas that stir. i don't write enough psychological horror. not nearly enough.

Alice in Wonderland in IMAX this weekend with the Mad Kat crew in Richmond. ROAD TRIP.
i still need to find a silly hat...sonofa...

OH HAI MARCH. *hisssssss*
oatmeal_queen: (dangerous art)
Well hi there 2010 :3

and as an added bonus, something to remind myself that the stuff i drew this year didn't suck even half as much as a few years ago.

cut for my sanity and your browsers )

Thanks to netflix, i finally got around to seeing Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog, if anything, to see what the hype was about and/or possibly amuse myself.

sweet fancy moses, why hadn't i watched this sooner?? XD *dies* no really, i have no idea why i'd never seen it.
i need to own this.

my phone is no longer a paperweight. i now accept calls, txts and cash.
that is all.
oatmeal_queen: (tedious)
SO, I has a PSP now.
Never thought that would happen, lol. But [livejournal.com profile] happytemplar upgraded her fine self and was kind enough to pass her previous one onto me. woot. i love free stuff! :D

HOWEVER, this is effective if (and only if, really) i actually have some games. Somewhere either in my place or [livejournal.com profile] happytemplar's place, is my Bust a Move. which is an awesome game, but i needs moar.

any recommendations?

i love puzzle games, but not something that requires me having to buy a textbook to figure it out. not too big on the fighting/brawl stuff.
anybody ever played LocoRoco? I was looking up Katamari for the PSP (wow, that's expensive) and that one showed up too. is it any good? also, anybody actually play/own the PSP version of Katamari? I heard it was crazy hard...
i was eyeballing Patapon too. anyone got any hands on with that?

Just for shits and giggles, i randomly checked out the next installment of Silent Hill, which is actually coming out for the PSP too. i love that series, tho i've never really been able to play it since i'm not all that good at it, lol. so no, i have no allusions of thinking i'd be able to play this one, but curiosity beat the cat. at least, until i read this:

PRODUCT FEATURES:
The game watches you and adapts to your actions to create a unique experience to each player and intensify their fears.

The Game Watches You.
WHUT.

so about them puzzle games? 8D

WHUT

So i'm in the hospital this morning for my millions of tests for the surgery in two weeks(ack), and there's a TV on playing the news. and this headline shows up for about two seconds scrolling across the bottom:

Disney to acquire Marvel for $4 billion

wait...whut?
¿QUE?
ONE OF THESE THINGS IS NOT LIKE THE OTHER

i...don't even know what to think of this ._.




in other news, having blood drawn straight from an artery kinda sorta hurts.

[livejournal.com profile] fauxfaia! WATCH IT.
*dies*
oatmeal_queen: (chicks dig artists)
lol, i suck.
so my weekend basically consisted of me switching between being stunted for drawing, to being stunted for writing. i swear i can't have one with the other XP
that, and i totally marathoned myself out after the whole 45k words in a single weekend thing. yikes.
i'm not blaming that for my being sick or anything, but i think i rockem sockemed my muse around just a bit. sorry bout that darlin

thankfully, i am feeling MUCH better! woo! and am glad to be going back to work after missing most of last week and feeling like a LUMP. like a stuffed up, grumpy achy freezing lump.
still can't get myself to eat all that much tho. weird.

and i also drew things! wewt. scoured through all my netflix movies in a day along with the new Friday The 13th and the first Starship Troopers. SHUTUP, i love that movie! i can't recall the last time i went movie shopping, so that was fun :3

not that i'm insinuating that anything doodled was good at all, but it was fun and good practice.
i seem to be able to draw nothing anatomically correct atm aside from chibis tho (which is ironic, and counter productive when you think about it) but oh well.
supernatural scribbles, fyi. two of them are based off of that crazy long story i did.

here, have some art )

ok, bed for reals now. not that i haven't been sleeping recently like i was preparing for the spring, but sleep is good.
oatmeal_queen: (asfgjfgks)
MY REARVIEW MIRROR FELL OFF IN MY CAR.
o______o

IT JUST FELL.OFF.

I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT COULD HAPPEN.
oatmeal_queen: (cookie monster penis)
I am officially killing all of my poor plants =__=

damnit. there just isn't enough sunlight coming into my room and i can't put them out in the apartment cause Christie's kitties will devour them.
*sigh*
i can't tell which is more cruel. death by starvation or death by cat. :(

I'm actually starting to gain some respect for Twitter.
not because i want to be uselessly dull on it, but because of how its fitting into the current issues in Iran.
gogo Iran-anon.

finally got around to getting Left4Dead, only to play a day's worth before my computer suddenly won't play it anymore ;.; such a damn tease. if only my brothers were nearby enough to fix it.



I was just working on a redraw for a shirt that i thought was a funny looking little monster thing until i realized it was actually China.

i need more sleep.

i got the london one but there was also one in manchester!!1!
*sobs unreasonably*


fuckshitcunt
now i gotta go back.

*sticks out thumb*
it was RIGHT THERE too ;__;


for those that are confused and probably offended by this rage, i collect the pins from these restaurants. and its rare for me to snag one out of country as i ONLY collect the ones i've been to, as an agonizing rule. damn my ignorance.

wow asylum

oatmeal_queen: (whoa sign)
...
w.t.f.

did that all srsly just happen?
i mean...i didn't dream it, right? the past three days DID happen, right?

...
now that it's sunday night, and i finally have the chance to sit down and breatheat and process everything that i was lucky enough to do this weekend...i don't think i can wrap my head around it.

whatever i did to deserve the last few days, i am so incredibly grateful <3
so.friggen.tired.

some thoughts/goings on )

there's so much that i will never be able to tell *laughs* i owe them all that much.
my life is so strange. XD

::EDIT::
LOL, i found this crazy blurry picture through [livejournal.com profile] tracy_loo_who's con post. that blotch of maroon back behind the left side of Matt? (if the pic was vertical) yeah, that's me X)
ignore that caption tho, the dude on the right is Josh, Amy's bf X) Matt was there with his fiance, not his brother. this sneaky photographer thinks they captured something great, but really, at that moment we were all comparing our freaky and gross double jointed talents. hollywood is all glamour, i tell you.
oatmeal_queen: (fma - head asplode)
x__x
Memorial Day weekend. and I've done more the past three days than i have in weeks. yikes.
on the plus side, lots of awesome stuff went down and i got outta the housemy head for some good times.
on the not so plus side, i feel pretty ill XP

on Saturday I went with [livejournal.com profile] psychosako to the VA Ren Fair. which is small, but cute, out in the middle of nowhere virginia. The most fun was had with her friends, however, half of which are in the belly dancing troupe that i've been involved with recently <3
i got some SUN. holy shit. my arms are a slightly darker shade of greenish-tan now, as opposed to the veiny pale i've been for the past two years. win.

Sunday I got to see Terminator: Salvation.
If you like the series, see it. I was not disappointed. the crazy plot holes from the first three were once again amusingly obvious even in this 4th installment, but oh well. robots kill all humans without reason gets old fast, so i was just in it for the pretty. awesome visual effects, tho the young digi-arnold was slightly creepy. ok, more than slightly.
ya know, i like christian bale, but the dude needs to try something different. musicals perhaps? i loved newsies, shutup :D

Monday was sleep in and then picnic day. I went with [livejournal.com profile] happytemplar, [livejournal.com profile] psychosako and Mama!Rachel out with [livejournal.com profile] happytemplar's family for some bbq fun. Which was actually a lot more fun than i thought it would be (no offense Molly, i've just been frazzled lately) with good food, good company and HOLY SHIT DOWNPOUR. we got rained on like crazy and ended up completely drenched to the bone. Cold and soggy, we all bundled up in borrowed clothes and towels to dry off at the Stackwicks as the storm passed through. The absurdity of it all just made me laugh. It was almost refreshing X)

i've got two days til my plane leaves for europe.
Finally finished the inks on the sailor moon busts for [livejournal.com profile] ssfseiyakou and trying my damndest to get them colored before i leave x_x atleast the coloring is all thats left.
the asylum guys got the art. so all is (hopefully) well on that front. here's hoping i actually have a hotel room and conbadge to go to. aaaaauuuugggghhh

we had such awesome food this afternoon for lunch, but i spent the rest of the day feeling nauseated and have been unable to eat anything more, even if i wanted to. my nerves will one day be the death of me. here's hoping i can sleep this off and it doesn't get worse...but methinks that'll be wishful thinking until i'm in the air. *cry*

i am going to be useless at work tomorrow, damnit.
