I am a hobbyist artist with Chronic Procrastination Syndrome. Despite this, somehow I manage to finish and upload stuff from time to time.
I love meeting people and chatting online(when I'm not procrastinating of course), so feel free to drop a line and say hi!

I am currently working on:

My stories:
A Final Chapter - ProloguePrologue
In a time long past, there was a promising civilization blooming on the planet Earth. The dominant species, humans, were just taking their first tentative steps into a larger world, and slowly realizing their potential. They had a lot to learn, and many old mistakes to correct, but a good and fruitful future was looming ahead of them. Until the Overlords came.
The Overlords, an advanced alien race bent on controlling the entire galaxy, and eventually the universe, saw in the primitive humans much potential. They also knew that this potential could prove dangerous to them if left unchecked.
So they came, just a small fleet by their standards, but still plenty to deal with the potential threat of the humans. The Overlords set to work quickly, crushing the human govronments and placing themselves in control over the planet. Then they recieved new orders: the humans would make a fine addition to their herd stocks for weapon and biological testing. Humans were a hardy species, perh
Impromptu Storytelling: Part 1The dragon sniffed at the bloody ground briefly, then shuffled her front feet together so the two innermost claws of either foot overlapped. She raised her head as high as her long neck would allow, and released a long, chilling keen that echoed over the rocky hills outside the cone-shaped cave she stood in.
Before her lay the body of another, larger, male dragon. He was by far the largest and most powerful dragon she had ever met. His blood still gently oozed from the gashes in his throat, his scales ripped from the skin and scattered around his great, many-horned head.
A small, biped being stood beside the mourning female dragon, his hand resting gently on her scaley foreleg. Confusion stood out above all other emotions on his features, but he wept with her.
The dragoness bowed her head, breathing heavily. She had several wounds of her own. Though they stung, ached or burned, nothing ached as much as her heart.
"You should have run while you had the chance." She said to her companion
Rats- part oneRats
A large brown rat scurried across a coblestone street, doing his best to dodge puddles and raindrops as he made his way to a small hole in a wall, just above the foundation of a large warehouse.
"Where is she?" He asked a carmel-colored rat as he entered.
"Tara is in the birthing den still. Yu says we almost lost her!" The smaller male replied, his voice respectful. "But she says Tara will be okay now, if we don't move her just yet."
"Is the litter well?"
The carmel rat shifted its paws uncomfortably. "They are well, but she lost two, and-"
"Thank you Gre, I will go see her now." The larger rat cut him off, and raced off to the den, set in the warmest part of the abandoned warehouse.
"Shu! I should tell  you-" Gre would have finished, but Shu was already in the den.

"Tara?" Shu poked his head in the entry to the den. "Yu, is Tara alright?"
Yu, a gray-and-silver rat, turned from the sleeping mother to the lead rat. "She is fine. The runt of the

College.

Finals are coming up fast, but this week was something of a breather. No quizzes that are unexpectedly dropped on us, no surprise extra homework, and most(note, MOST. I'm looking at you, Writing 227) of my classes are lightening up on homework.
So, I figured I'd write an update of some sort.

Worn out as I have become, I am enjoying my classes a great deal. Every now and then it occurs to me just how much I've already learned in just one term, while I have five more to go before I'm "done." The only class I'm not enjoying is my writing class, mostly because it's taken one of my favorite hobbies and turned it into a chore. My one solace is this is the LAST writing class I have to take for my program. Technical writing is rather tedious in a classroom setting, and with a teacher who has shoehorned everyone into some oddly broad-yet-narrow topics to write about, it's not exactly exciting or fun. Not to mention, I've already learned everything the class has to offer, so now I just have to slog through the remaining work until I'm done.

Everything else is going great though. My electronics classes almost always leave me excited or at least with a wider perspective on the world. Yesterday my instructor took us all into one of our labs and showed us a tiny little chip(it was maybe, MAYBE four mm long...) under an electron-beam microscope. It's incredible how absolutely tiny things are these days. There were extremely fine, but very easily made-out under the microscope, components on these chips that aren't even visible to the naked eye. And these components had details that were even tinier. Just as an example, one of the details on one these components measures in at 4 microns wide. To compare, the average human hair is about 17 microns thick.
This stuff is way too freaking awesome.

On a slightly less-fun note, I had another car accident this week. The roads were slippery on my way coming home from school and I lost traction in a sharp corner. I was able to maintain reasonable control of the car but wasn't able to stop my slide in time to take the second half of the S-curve I was in without potentially flipping the car, so I wound up jumping a ditch and plowing into a field. I wasn't badly hurt but my car's front bumper got ripped off on the lip of the ditch and the airbags deployed, so she's totaled. So, I'm without a car again for the time-being, which means my long-suffering and self-sacrificing mom has been driving me to school the last few days and will have to keep doing so until we can possibly get a rental car through our insurance until school is over and we can go car shopping.
Pay attention out there, my friends. Winter is upon us and the roads are becoming more and more treacherous, even ones we consider to be old "friends." Make sure you check your tires, and if the treads are getting worn, replace them. Don't wait until they're bald. My tires were getting worn but weren't "dangerous" yet, and I think that contributed to my loss of traction that day.

On to a less scary note! OryCon is this weekend! Originally I hadn't planned on going. Between my injuries from my accident earlier this year keeping me from working over the summer, and my college-student-level poverty, I wasn't able to afford my membership fee, nor my share of the room fee, not to mention lacking any spare cash for any fun things to bring home from the artists corner. My friends, however, had other plans and paid for my membership and are allowing me to stay with them even though I can't contribute to the room costs. All because they wanted the whole squad of us to be there. I'm not sure if this speaks of how much my friends like me, or just of how pathetic the lot of us are on our own... ANYWAY, I'm looking forward to going and it's a welcome distraction over the weekend from school(even though I'm taking homework with me).

Because my writing teacher isn't a very good classroom teacher(she does great one-on-one, but when she's teaching the class as a group she struggles) I've been doing a lot of doodling in class. I plan on uploading these copious drawings as a sketchdump at some point during winter break. Other than those drawings, however, I haven't had a chance to work on anything art-wise. I have ideas, and I'm trying to save up to buy a drawing tablet, so high hopes for that, perhaps over the summer.

Leather and scale under armor, or chainmail under armor?
