I guess the moral of this story is that I can’t say no to interspecies polyamory. :|
Still slowly but surely working on this thing. 16 characters left! *o*

If you haven’t seen all of what I’ve finished thus far, you can find them all here. :3
(as written for FB)
Have y’all heard what is going on in Ferguson, MO? Because I haven’t seen word one about it on Facebook.
Maybe no one I know is talking about it because they just haven’t heard anything. Flipped past the news channels without making a dent in their awareness. Maybe no one is talking about it because, like me, they’ve been overwhelmed by all the terrible stories coming out of the protests and can’t engage with it. Or maybe no one is talking about it because you just don’t care.
We should care. The events unfolding in Ferguson are the kind that will change history, for better or for worse.
I have cried in my car thinking about what is happening, out of grief and out of anger at how the media is failing to represent what is happening in our country. I’ve lain awake at night for a WEEK wrestling with whether or not to write this post. In the end, here I am, because I can’t stand to think that people are turning a blind eye to this.
Even if it means that I get the same terrible FB fallout as I did when Trayvon Martin was killed. That experience at least taught me to make sure that everyone in the conversation is operating with the same starting information. So I’ve laid out what is happening in Ferguson, for those of you who haven’t been following the news.
Normally I would just link to news articles as they come out and let them do the talking for me. The problem here is twofold. First, if there were adequate and accurate news coverage, I wouldn’t feel the need to add my own voice. I wouldn’t feel this awful swelling pressure of injustice and lies.
Second, the news articles I see that are coming out are perpetuating false information and failing to convey the reality of the situation in Ferguson. It’s easier and more exciting to write about a mindless angry mob than to convey the reality of racial tension and the serious problem of police brutality against nonwhite people. It’s also easier to repeat the same bad information when journalists and reporters are being actively barred from the area—more on that further down.
The full story on what happened when Officer Darren Wilson shot teenager Mike Brown is still slowly coming out. Of the three people who directly witnessed the actual shooting—Officer Wilson, Mike, and Mike’s friend Dorian Johnson—one is dead, one has every reason to lie about his death, and one has yet to be officially interviewed or given the chance to make a statement, even though a week has passed since the shooting. He has written about it on his Twitter account, but that isn’t being widely circulated or reported.
Updates about what are happening in the protests, however, are plentiful. And this is where it really becomes plain how deep the schism lies between what is being reported in official news broadcasts, and what eyewitnesses are reporting on social media.
Let me walk through the information as it stands as of Tuesday morning, 8/19/14, regarding the shooting of Mike Brown, the protests in Ferguson, and the media, for those of you who haven’t had a chance to follow this story, or who have been misinformed.
Pretty good and informative post, which deserves a lot more notes.
I made this meme because I hate the people I live with. :D
I AM POORER THAN THEM, WHY DO THEY NEED TO TAKE MY FOOD
In other news, bought a minifridge a few weeks ago. I sure do love spending a lot of money to protect my groceries. (◕‿◕✿)
When you’re discussing with an online buddy how two of your respective characters would get along, I’m pretty sure it’s inevitable to bring up what kind of animal they’d act like towards each other.
In this case, a fat disgruntled cat and a snarly little terrier. …BEST FRIENDS! >:D
I can’t draw animals, please forgive me.
Two more colored bust sketches from the Grapple Force Rena giveaway, now concluded! Still waiting on four more winners to get back to me with the characters they want! :<
Hollow Soldier - erichermit
Mischa - catfruits
If you haven’t checked Grapple Force Rena out yet, I suggest you do, cuz it is pretty neat!
The first three colored bust sketches from the Grapple Force Rena giveaway, which has now concluded! Just waiting on the rest of the winners to get back to me with the characters they want - I’ll probably post them as I finish them after today.
Sailor Moon for Wendy Bautista
Xander for candysuits
Rozalind for veloxiraptor
If you haven’t checked Grapple Force Rena out yet, I suggest you do, cuz it is pretty neat!
The Grapple Force Rena Kickstarter is an hour away from ending, having broken the $8000 stretch goal, and – given the small amount of rebloggers and sharers on my giveaway – I suppose it’s about time I revealed a secret: EVERYONE WINS. Well, okay, three people win actual non-sketch prizes, but…still. Everyone who reblogged or shared the giveaway post thus far is getting a drawing from me!
1st place winner: lacietsukima (Full body drawing, either with background or extra character, inked and colored!)
2nd place winner: jesukoishinaga (Full body drawing, inked and colored!)
3rd place winner: diddgery (Bust drawing, inked and colored!)
Runner-up winners: erichermit, candysuits, amnionchorion, veloxiraptor, catfruits, Wendy Bautista, and…my mom. XD; (Colored bust sketches for all!)
I’ll be contacting each winner for details of what they want drawn later tonight, and we’ll go from there.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!
Since there IS an hour left, in order to drum up as much publicity as possible for Grapple Force Rena within that time, I’m opening 11 slots for further winners, who will each receive an uncolored bust sketch of their choice of character. The first ten people to reblog or share the giveaway posts within the hour will be guaranteed a sketch. The eleventh bust sketch will be awarded to a random person who wasn’t one of those ten people, and who hasn’t already been declared a winner. And, if you’re already on the list of winners above, another share or reblog might earn you an extra uncolored sketch! ;]
SO! If you want a free sketch – of ANY character – for basically no effort, just reblog this post, or share this post publicly on Facebook. Once again, everyone who has already reblogged or shared is a definite winner, and the next ten people to reblog or share are guaranteed as well! And, out of everyone who enters after that, one random person will also win a sketch!
GRAPPLE FORCE RENA ADVERTISEMENT ATTEMPT GO!
Okay, so I’m gonna lay out one fact straight from the get-go: I SUCK at advertisement. I can not promote a thing to save my life. What do I NOT suck at, you might ask? Doodling. I doodle a LOT. So I might as well put my doodling to good use and try to apply it to advertisement somehow.
The result being…SKETCH GIVEAWAY!
How does it work? Basically exactly like this: First, though not necessarily a requirement, I recommend you check out this cool game called Grapple Force Rena. It is cute, fun, light-hearted, and absolutely worth giving a play or two (or several!). Second, you reblog this post, pic and text and all. Third…? That’s it! Your username will be added into my list of people who are awesome, and that list will later on be put into a big ol’ randomizer to spit out a couple names, and those people will win a free bust sketch from me of whatever character they choose! LITERALLY. ANY. CHARACTER. I don’t care if they’re from an anime, a TV show, a comic, whatever, or if they’re a canon or original character. They could have the most ridiculous design in existence or be a blatant parody of something else for all I care. I WILL DRAW THEM.
There IS one catch to all this, though. As I said, this is intended to promote Grapple Force Rena, which - at the time of my posting this - is currently sitting at around three-quarters of the way to being funded on Kickstarter, with nine days to go. If the Kickstarter falls through, regardless of how many people reblog this post, no free sketches will be had. SO. Nine days, $1700 - let’s see if we can make this happen.
There will be at least one sketch winner regardless of how many times this post is reblogged. REBLOGS only - likes don’t count. For every 25 reblogs up to 100, there will be one additional winner. For every 100 reblogs up to 1000, there will be one additional winner. You can reblog this as many times as you like, though I’ll only count up to nine reblogs per person - one for each day until the Kickstarter concludes. You don’t have to be following me to win.
If somehow this post manages to get past 1000 reblogs, I…guess I’ll have to set a sketch limit??? Probably somewhere between 30 and 50. I have no idea.
Finally, if Grapple Force Rena goes decently beyond its funding goal, let’s say between $250-500, at least five winners will get their sketch colored! (Or they’ll get a full-body sketch instead - whichever they prefer.) If it gets WELL beyond its funding goal…uh…I guess we’ll just have to see! It might end up with every winner getting a colored sketch, and one penultimate winner getting a colored full-body sketch??? MAN, I don’t even know. Let’s just get this thing started!
OH! And for followers of mine, if you don’t want to see my own daily reblogs of this, I’m tagging it as gfr-giveaway. :]
Okay. KRYS OUT!
Rebloggin’ for early morning! (Why am I even awake.)
By the way, NEW THING: If you don’t want to do tumblr rebloggin’, you can share the post on Facebook instead! :O
Rebloggin’ for afternoon! 8 days left - $1500 to go!
Once again, REBLOGS ONLY. Likes don’t count as entries. :O
Rebloggin’! One week and $1400 left! :O
WELL! The Kickstarter is sitting pretty at $7100 right now, which means someone will definitely be winning a free sketch from me.
BUT WHO SHALL IT BE?
So far, there’s only enough reblogs and shares on the giveaway posts to warrant one free sketch, but there’s still about a week to go. With 25 reblogs and/or shares, the amount of winners will be bumped up to two. Heck, at this point, I might even make it three, with the first winner getting their sketch colored. So, help spread the word? Possibly get a sketch out of it? :D
$7300, and 4 more days left! Looks like the giveaway winner will be getting a colored full-body sketch! :O Still haven’t hit 25 reblogs and/or shares for this post, but…despite that, given the awesome fact that Grapple Force Rena is getting funded, I think I’ll just go ahead and bump up the number of winners to three, anyway. 8D
1st place - Colored full-body sketch
2nd place - Colored bust sketch
3rd place - Bust sketch
I may add more winners, or make the prizes better, depending on how the last few days go. More people spreading the word will mean more winners, while further funding for the game will lead to prizes of a more finished (i.e. less sketched) nature. ;]
Once again, reblogs and shares are the entry methods - likes don’t count. And, just as a reminder, winners will get a sketch of WHATEVER CHARACTER THEY WANT.
$7700, with 44 hours left! Plus it’s Tim’s birthday! ^o^ *INSERT CELEBRATORY SPAZZING*
Still doing this sketch giveaway thing - reblogs (and shares on Facebook) act as entries, and there will be three winners! If the Kickstarter breaks $8000, all three prizes will be inked! If more people spread the word, there will be additional winners!
44 HOURS~! :D
FOUR HOURS LEFT! Less than $40 to go to meet the $8000 stretch goal, which would mean five extra courses for the game, AND better prizes in this giveaway! :D Fingers crossed! (I want to see those extra courses!)
