In spite of what is turning out to be the absolute worst case of allergies i think i’ve ever suffered from (quoting my tweet from the other day: “Allergies have come down on me like a 500 ton mallet wrapped in pillows, my brain is drinking hot coco with ceiling cat, watching me work.”) I was able to get a lot closer to being up to date with everyone’s orders. In fact, i was finally getting to orders that included some of the new shirt designs. That’s the very first JUNPEI shirt coming out of the printer pictured above. Next two are the Endgames Behind the Cask on the Tan t-shirt and the Zom Zom on the Sand t-shirt.
my smartphone camera is so crappy i decided to take actual pictures this time.
If you would like to get yourself one of these shirts, head on over to the Megagear store and order one. The MTVC Sketches and then going to Anime Expo really put me behind on orders, and i *really* appreciate your patience in waiting for them - i hope the sketches were worth the wait. I’m much closer to getting orders printed and shipped in the course of a few days rather than weeks now. I DO still have old sketch orders that i’m still working on - most of those are for people who ordered more than 2 sketches (in some cases far more than 2). They’re coming, i’m still working my way through the big sketch orders. ^^;;
The biggest sketch order of all was an order for 50 Mihos. Yes, i verified that. I decided to make it 50 different Mihos, so that all together they might say something about her as a character - we’ll see how they all come out (and yes, i plan to post the set when it’s done).
It looks like there are some major issues going on at my colo - DNS went first but now it seems the servers are offline too. Trying to get a timeframe for the downtime, but no word on that yet. So yeah, it’s not you, but all the MT sites are down, including the MegaGear store. :( After my exploding tank earlier today, this is just a *loverly* cap to it all. The good news - the next comic is well underway, drawings in progress, so… yeah.
Just had a serious *duh* moment - i can stagger the sketch postings here so that you guys don’t get flooded with four or more all at once when i post. It’s like, right there in front of me (duh). I’ll try to spread them out a little more as i post.
You might notice as i post these that the sketches that most of them are decent enough (a few of them seem quirky to me now) but mixed in with them are sketches that are really not bad at all - that’s the nature of sketching, i think, especially with drawings like this. It’s weird how i’ll struggle with a sketch of Miho one minute - just struggling to keep it from looking like an exhausted three-year old did it - to something that just falls on the page just right. I’ve been drawing these characters for over ten years, and i still struggle with them from time to time. The odd thing being… often the more awkward looking sketches are the ones that took the most amount of time to do. :P
Regardless, i hope that everyone is happy with the drawings that I did for them.
I’ve created this new Tumblr feed to supplement my MT rant space with posts meant specifically for Megatokyo readers (unlike my Fredrin tumblr which is really way too random). We’re working on integration stuffs on the front page, but for now these posts should post to the Megatokyo twitter and the Megatokyo Fan Page on Facebook automatically.
The first practical use for this will be the posting of all those MT Virtual Con sketches i’ve been scanning. I’m not going to be posting them all at once, just in small batches (i’ll try to keep the MT twitter from getting overwhelmed by just tweeting the first of the batch) etc. Hope this helps consolidate things a little :)
