I'm pretty happy with today's sketch. I haven't posted one for you guys in a while, so I thought I'd go the little extra distance today and make it a nice one.
I was in a very weird funk yesterday. I wasn't motivated to do anything. Couldn't work, couldn't even play World of Warcraft. I have no idea why. The only thing that held my interest, and even then not for very long, was Resident Evil 4 (I'll get into that in a moment). It was just one of those days where you don't want to do anything. I was just totally out of it.
Today, however, I've woken up with so much motivation and inspiration it's ridiculous. And I know exactly why. I've started seeing/dating someone recently, and I had this really weird day yesterday, but then at the end of the day, last night before bed, I got to talk to her for a while, and she totally snapped me out of it. Not on purpose, either. She's not even aware that she did it. It's stuff like this that makes me realize how special she is to me. She's absolutely wonderful, and I hope that I can make her as happy as she makes me.
Let's see... work stuff. The Lilah shirts are being printed, and should be up for sale in the store pretty soon. Most of the designs will now be offered in Baby Doll tees, which should please some of the ladies that have been emailing requests for them.
I've got a little pile of stuff that I need to do, and today I feel like I have the energy to just plow through it all. I don't know how realistic that is, but it won't hurt to try. Mostly comics stuff. My comic, the CoH comic, and a comic I promised to do for my friend Josh for his Anthology project.
The new front fenders for my car have finally shipped, and will arrive on Friday. One step closer to having all of the parts for the major overhaul in the spring. If anyone asks about my car I'm going to ingore you, because I've talked about it at length in the past.
Haven't played WoW in 4 days now. I don't feel like I've lost interest in the game at all. I still love it. I just haven't been feeling like playing it right now. The first couple of days I didn't play it because I was spending time with someone who is way more important than WoW, but then it was just business and generic apathy. I'm sure this weekend I'll jump back into it.
Resident Evil 4 is really very cool. There's a lot of great action, fun end bosses, and so many little nuances that I can't even list them all. Like being able to shoot a zombie in the leg as he's running toward you, and he'll grab his thigh and stumble to the ground, where you can safely empty a clip into his head. Or the "instant-kill" moves that add realism and danger to the game, such as when a chainsaw wielding zombie gets too close. You don't just suffer minor lacerations. It's a fucking chainsaw. That sonuvabitch cuts right through your neck, removing your head from your body, no matter how much health you have left. It's a thing of beauty. Disturbing beauty, but beauty nonetheless.
