Life, art, and Magic @ 11:52 am

Current Mood: artistic artistic

This week was kind of hellish... a lot of long hours to the point I was brain dead for the majority of the week. I didn't get to do much of what I wanted being out of class for 6 days (namely to catch up on my emails... which I'm still sorely behind on :/ Scott was nice enough to watch Lucian for us Friday night, so Jason and I could go play a Magic the Gathering tournament! (My first! I used to play way back in the day, and I still have my old deck. We had to spend some money to get new cards last week, so we could enter the tournament since you have to have play with in certain sets... it's a way to make money, but it also keeps cheeseballs from bringing in cards that are too powerful from previous sets, so I can understand why they do it. Out of 25 players, I came in 11th place :) Yay! We plan to play when we go to Dragoncon and are quite excited to play there like the big fat nerds we are LOL! :P

It's been forever since I had the gumption to draw anything... but being at the tournament gave me a bit of in between time to work on my True Blood art... one more episode to go! I was sad to see Steve go *pout* There is surprisingly no fanart for these two out there which is sad because they are fun characters if a bit douche bag LOL! ;)

I haven't forgotten about all my other promised art, I just did this one because I needed to draw SOMETHING, and portraits are pretty easy for me since the concept is already there, and all I need to do is draw it. So, without further ado,

I used to collect Pokemon cards back in the day. Unfortunately, I didn't know anybody else who collected them. :(

I was a bit too old by the time that show/card game came out, so I never really checked it out, but my cousin used to collect them I remember

Congrats on 11th! I learned Magic one summer at sleepaway camp, but that was...yeesh...a good twenty years ago or so.

Things are definitely going well now. It was just through the work week was all :) I'm working to stay ahead on my newest class, so by the time Dragoncon gets here, I won't have to think about homework over the week end ;)

I was surprised to come in at 11th place for my first tournament, but definitely happily surprised! =D

Thank you! I love the way his expression came out! *evil grin*

You came 11th, that's great. :-) I haven't played any kind of game in a long time. I used to play an excellent game called Lunch Money. That was fun.
I love this artwork, so beautiful.

Poor Steve indeed *eyebrow wiggle* ;)

What is the premise of the game?

'This card game simulates children (a little girl is featured on all cards) running around the playground beating up each other and stealing their lunch money. Once you get past the strange theme, there's a fun little game where players beat each other senseless with cards like 'Poke in the Eye', 'Uppercut', and 'Humiliation.' Not for the weak willed, this game is mean. The last player still standing wins.'

This about sums it up. This link explains it a bit more. It's a good game, I used to play it with some friends of mine but they moved away so I am going to get a set of my own.:-)

My gosh, Jenna, this is Amazing! Just, wow! Maybe put an option up in your store for portraiture photos that people can buy. Charge like $50-100/something and people can send in what photo they want done. You're clearly talented enough!

I'm glad you got to go have fun playing Magic! I've never played but I hear it's great! Hope you win some good money at it!

Haha, I like that you use the word gumption! XD

Why thank you my sweet! I am quite happy with how this one came out. I did list prices for other works under each individual pic because I wasn't sure how to do that... of course I'm still learning the site :Gumption is a great word ;)

That is a brilliant drawing Jenna! I'm not any good at arty stuff lol never really played card games, just collected some TV related playing cards which I used to like getting signed at conventions lol

Glad your week is going better now! I'm on my days off at the moment and been playing Hobbit Kingdoms of middle earth. It's not like I really need another obsession lol

Truly wonderful drawing. Those two DO have a really interesting relationship. I'm way behind on True Blood - partially because I have to wait for my step-father to make me a disk of the episodes since I don't get that channel. I've only seen the first four episodes of this season, but I did see the scene you drew. :)

OMG! So many things!!!!! 0o I wish I could chat with you about them *pout* At least the season is over, so hopefully you'll get your hands on those discs, and we can chat about the show :) I did love this scene, and I think it signal handedly turned my radar on to Steve... his mewling and pouty cry face followed by sass kind of hits some triggers for me LOL! ;) I won't give anything away more than I guess I did above :/ Hope I didn't ruin anything for you.

We will have to chat as soon as I catch up! I do have one disk with 4 episodes on my desk. Hopefully I can watch those by the end of the week, and maybe I'll get my new disk this weekend.

Yeah, I can see the pouty thing followed by sass getting to you. :) It's okay, I figured Steve wouldn't last long once he got taken by the government types. And in that show, there really aren't any secondary characters I would call 'safe' from being killed off.

Glad you got your Once DVD!

Hiya

You should be proud of your piece of art, it's lovely lol

Hobbit KOM is a city building game that I'm playing on my ipad at the moment. Will probably have to ease off on the game soon, with the fic challenge starting lol

Have a good day
