Recently spent the weekend in NYC for the first-ish time! Just documenting this for my own reference; I barely took any pictures.

Most of you wouldn't be aware of this, but I've been doing artwork for a collaborative YuriJam game demo over Sept-Oct 2018.
After completing YaoiJam earlier this year (Come for a Drink), I thought that it would be a good idea (why) to do the counterpart. After drawing old dudes for over 2 months, it was refreshing to draw younger women for once. I also had the better sense to not do the majority of the work on my own this time...! For this year's YuriJam I was responsible for the sprite and CGs related to the characters. Unfortunately I have no idea if the game demo will ever be released, but here's some WIP!
One of the CGs that appears in the game
A few more pictures can be found here!
Today's music post: Careless Whisper cover by Alexandr Misko on guitar (plucking). A very different vibe, very impressive!
After watching the movie I had an urge to draw this...
I haven't had Smiles in so long...
Matching couples outfits
I really put zero effort into likeness.

I managed to finish OCeptember 2018, a prompt for original characters! It's compiled in a birdsite memory here, but I'm also posting it below to add TL;DR.
Day 1. Favourite OC(s)
The loggersports crew. Not necessarily my favourites (I still haven't nailed the look/design of some of them) but most top of mind because of upcoming webcomic!
Day 2. Least loved OC(s)
The detective crew. Least loved only relative to how little I draw them. Some of these characters are from 2003 or even earlier.
Day 3. Best buds
Fake is originally from the detective stuff, while Jake is from the loggersport stuff. They were created in complete isolation, but at some point I made a decision to make them good friends (because they play MMORPGs and go to cons together).Read more
Updated to Bludit 3.0! Always a bit stressful doing upgrades when you're not sure if all of your content is going to get busted or not, haha. Luckily everything worked out just as the documentation outlined!
I was at Canzine Toronto yesterday with Linda Tea, representing Love Love Hill. It was nice to see a lot of bustling creativity across the whole show. I'm grateful to the organizers and volunteers at Broken Pencil for making things happen. Thank you to everyone who dropped by to say hello and/or buy stuff :). Check out the winners of the 2018 Broken Pencil Zine awards, and their IG compilation post to find more excellent zinesters (such breadth!)!
Took a break from drawing some other stuff to draw more stuff, aka Fung from my visual novel game, Come For A Drink (CFAD).
It's nice to repurpose these background paintings haha.
WIP below This sketch's face really doesn't get pulled through haha
Fung's draft outfits...most of these got pulled through to some extent. I looked at a lot of modern wuxia/hanfu outfits for inspiration.
And these are some dev notes for CFAD...lots of potential spoilers?
