Got a tablet. ^-^ ... Now just practicing and getting used to it- I need to buy Sai. x_x Photoshop is cool too but Sai has a lot more... interesting ways to make things happen.

Won't be submitting for a while, trying to remember how to color. <'D lolol
skype fixed

SO- I know its been almost two months since I posted that I was back but you know my life. @_@

I have my scanner hooked up to my computer- I have Photoshop- I'm getting a tablet for my birthday- and I'm drawing IZ again.

Invader Zim styled IZ no less- I'm pretty fucking happy I'm not going to lie.

I will do my best to log onto Skype frequently- but please, please  understand that I still have a lot going on outside of dA.

You guys are so fucking important to me but sometimes you have to go handle things that need handling- and that's exactly why I was gone for... what, three years? Shit happens.

Work is insanely busy- you can imagine the skin cancer industry is booming in Florida. Snowbirds just got here from up north, so I'm pulling a lot of late nights at work and some twelve hour shifts. Once work is done, I go and see my love :iconnumchuk: and spend a few hours with him; if I'm not exhausted I come home and work out because you all know of my other dA page :iconxdatura: ( HIGHLY NSFW and don't view if you don't want to see me nude. ) and that takes maintaining the body. x-x I am not saying whatsoever that you guys are at the bottom of my priority list- I just will never be what I used to... at least not until I've moved into the house when my tax return comes... then maybe, just maybe... things will be back to the way they used to be and I'll be here nightly.

Just understand how hard it is to have a busy ass life outside of here- and then have another life here you have to maintain. I feel like such a horrible person when I have to up and go for days, weeks, and months at times... this is why I'm so reluctant to snuggle back in with some old friends because I just.... don't want to leave them hanging like I did when I started as a bartender and was working night shifts. ._. I have great, great guilt still about all those people who were... really fucking close to me and then one day I was just gone. You have no idea how much pain I feel over this- every single day of my life. Some of the best friends I've ever had were here online- and I can't say I've met many people in the real world who come anywhere CLOSE to how great you all are. I feel like I abandoned everyone even though that wasn't the case, things just got tough.

Now even though things are truly great- things could get more strenuous in the future. College is a big thought in my head right now and I'm thinking about pursuing my major seriously now since my work will pay for a full ride- that's a big deal and I'm not going to let it slip through my fingers.

All this bullshit aside- I am plotting a comic, and have been for the past two months. It is going to be strictly IZ style- this is easier for me because frankly IZ style is easier to do than full blown realistic/semi-realistic bodies. I have a whole slew of new characters; and in the comic universe, pretty much every character you ARE familiar with ( Coco, Aissa, Korr, etc. ) are all dead. Sorry. :( It will make sense when the comic starts- but I'm conflicted because I don't know if I should be uploading the drabbles/story I'm writing to go with it or the comic itself.

Hm.

I have my scanner sitting here; I'm about to take my meds and start drawing.

I love you guys; all of you. Without you I don't think I ever would have gotten this far with my life and frankly I'm glad I decided against deleting this account.

Don't be afraid to note me, I don't bite. I swear to god my shitty attitude is gone; I just cuss like a sailor. Heh.

Much love and looking forward to posting these comics.

Who knows, when shit really stables out I might just start roleplaying again. Who knows.

Peace.
FYI I'm not dead! I've been plotting a story and comic that will be completely IZ stylized. Can't wait to show you guys; and yes, once I get my scanner hooked back up I will start uploading my concepts. I think you guys are really going to enjoy what I'm doing

its been a while i think. i've been working for the doctor for almost a year and i'm pretty sure i haven't logged on in that time...

so; i'm really too exhausted to explain in depth at this point. its so very late over here on my end of the world and i've fallen ill with a god awful snowbird virus that the bastards have brought down south with them for the 'warm' winter.

needless to say; i can't ever guarantee i'm back because i refuse to make such full promises, but i can guarantee that i'm more stable than i have EVER been. its kind of alarming- i didn't know i was capable of being this normal and feeling like myself again. heh.

i've been sketching a lot- brushing up over some old nostalgia and drawing a few irkens here and there- loc, aissa, randoms, etc. just whoever comes to mind.

i'm planning on buying a premium membership for this account if i decide to keep sketching; if things keep progressing and i finally worm my way back into the forgotten depths of drawing i may very well drop a good amount of money to get a nice tablet and really get back into the swing of things.

I'll tell you what I'm doing when I buy that premium.

GETTING RID OF THAT FUCKING NAME

PRAISE THE LORD I HURT LOOKING AT IT

And honestly this account isn't going to be solely irken art- I'm going to leave my old gallery open just so its there for old nostalgic reasons- but also so I can see how much better I've gotten as I've aged. I'm rusty as shit- but I know I've improved in a lot of aspects. I started working with paint a lot this year and really got an idea of how colors blend and what works- I'm sure this could help with digital painting however I lack the tablet. Its dead. I'll get a new one eventually. vwv

I uh... I honestly can't believe I'm posting here right now with the same enthusiasm I had a couple of years ago as a young girl. Now I'm 21 and kind of have an idea of what the fuck I'm doing with my life and got in with a damn good doctor and I literally can't say I have a single thing to bitch about. Literally. nothing. I have nothing to bitch about- not even being sick. Who cares; life is grand.

Yep.

Anyway; I'm planning on giving a few certain people a premium membership who've stuck around even through all these harsh years. You know who you are- and honestly I would give you so much fucking more than a premium if I could. I love you guys- so much.

Can't wait to see what the future has in store- I think I am finally over my literal three to four year long hiatus. What a fucking trip.

I wonder if any of you are still around. o_O

Old enough to know better

I come and go- that's the way it is. Don't get attached if you can't handle distance; I can't control when life comes calling and I have to head out for some time. :')

I'm formerly TheTallestCoco; if you remember. Irkens are cool and shit but I'm pretty sure I've primarily moved on to other things- so... thanks for the support and thanks for stoppin' in.

Buh bye.

Excellent ;w;

Heh yes I'm still here, still doing the same thing I've been doing for years, and still enjoying it. Like an unchanging, mossy rock. P fPfpff. I'm guessing you no longer have access to your yahoo/MSN/instant messenger, too?

I don't... and I'm really not a big fan of Skype but hey. I guess I gotta do what I gotta do- I need to touch base with a few people.

I'll log on eventually- just trying to settle in.

No yeah I know, just got worried and thought something bad had happened. I hope I can see you on skype more often though, so we can chat, if even for a little bit. Also, check out your profile 83
