1  Other Realms / Random Topics / Re: Arm updates on: August 31, 2015, 11:57:11 PM
This month's arm annoyance factors below! Again, keep in mind the right arm is nearly constantly at rest in the left arm in use. (Standard deviations in parentheses.)

Code:
L R
February 3.1 (1.4) 4.1 (1.8)
March 2.4 (0.9) 3.2 (1.3)
April 2.3 (0.9) 2.9 (1.0)
May 2.4 (0.9) 2.3 (0.9)
June 1.6 (0.6) 2.2 (0.8)
July  1.8 (0.9) 1.5 (0.7)
August 1.2 (0.6) 1.4 (0.7)

Right arm--slightly better and overall doing well so long as it gets rest.  Sometimes the 90 minute sessions give it a bit of trouble, so I'm not going to change anything for September.

Left arm--significant improvement this month.  I no longer see a need to monitor drawing sessions as closely as I've been with the left arm.  Therefore, for September I'm going to try not worrying about timing sessions and simply draw as long as it feels fine three days per week, plus I am going to add a short session on Wednesday.  I will still keep the right handed drawing days as a break for the left hand for now.  This actually won't be as huge of a jump as it sounds. As people have seen, the 3 1/2 hour Sunday session really drags on to 6+ hours since I stop the timer for every little break and pause, so it ends up taking a pretty decent chunk of the day.  And the 2 hour CF sessions during weekdays are pretty close to how much time I would invest on the comic normally after working for 8 hours anyway.

For the past month I've been able to complete one Crimson Flag page per week using the Monday through Saturday sessions, leaving the Sunday session for drawing other things.  At this rate if there are no further setbacks, CF is looking to get back on track mid-October once the buffer reaches 10 pages.  Starting this Saturday, CF will move up to an update every other week until this point is reached.

That would be RECOVERY MILESTONE NUMBER ONE, which I've been working towards since December.

This month with the extra left-handed drawing time I will be working towards completing CF pages Monday through Friday and opening up that Saturday session for other things.  I want to do the Halloween sketch-a-thon in October, so if I can open up some right handed drawing time for that, that would be great (although not entirely necessary).  We'll see how it goes!

Extra Complex Fun Allotment Schedule:

Sunday - L (unmonitored)
Monday - R 1h
Tuesday - L (unmonitored)
Wednesday - L 30-60 min
Thursday - R 1h
Friday - L (unmonitored)
Saturday - R 1.5h

Eventually, I run into Yilin on the streets.

"You didn't find anything either, huh?" I can tell by his empty handedness and general irritated expression.  "All I got was this red fish."

"Karp, karp..." says the red fish tied to the the leash I'm holding with my fin.

I got him from this shady guy in an alley who kept calling me "boy".

"Karp, karp... magikarp... karp..." says the red fish.

"I think I'll name him Karl."

"Hey."

"Shut up, Karl.  Anyway, the streets of Atlantis are lame.  Let's find Chief No-Pronouns and move on.  I know there's no way he found anything either."

Hello!

Barring further catastrophe, I will be doing another random left-handed request this Sunday!  To enter, post your reply number!  That is, first entrant posts 1, second posts 2, etc.  If the ordering gets messed up, FIX IT.  I will randomly select the winner in chat tomorrow night (in approximately 25 hours).

No need to post the details of your request unless you win.

Winner has 24 hours to post the details of his or her request.  One character of up to medium complexity with no background, fully colored.  Reference is not required--I can work from a description just fine.  Please post a specific request!  None of that "draw whatever you want" nonsense.  It doesn't have to be super detailed--just enough to give me direction.  

*NEW* If you are feeling adventurous, you may request your picture finished with colored lines instead of shading, like this or this.  Request need not be absurdly pink or a pony.

This is open to CF members registered at the time of this posting only.  Previous Sunday request winners also cannot enter a second time.

If you don't win, don't fear!  These will start as a trickle, but there will likely be more of these during the coming months as I recover to gauge my ability to take commissions (my second goal after getting CF back up and running full speed) and also to gauge the left hand's effectiveness.

Go go go!!

It is not really finished the way I intended it in 2008. Gray Fox Wink

Looks like an interesting start!  Any plans to continue?  I do like the setting so far.

HARUPH.  What kind of an underwater market is this?  I would have expected a more readily available magical selection in Atlantis.  Trees.

All right, I'll see if I can find this potion stand, but if they've got nothing good it's obviously time to move on.

Ha ha, this is great!  Spot on obsession with drawing and fixing the blasted window.  Hate it when stuff like this happens!
12  Other Realms / Role Play Theater / Re: Transformation Theater on: August 16, 2015, 11:10:53 PM
Bleh, I hate markets because of the crowds.  At least I'm anonymous in a crowd though.  While the eel guy makes a fuss, I swim up to a vendor to ask around.

"Hey, you!  Got any enchanted items for sale?  Know anyone around here that does?"

"Let's at least take a look around town first to see what's available."

This might be a good opportunity to test my own magic trinket, in case we need to enter an underwater china shop and there are no sea horses allowed or something like that.
