Jackie - Finished!

I finished him! I also finished the secret project. One commission left! Oh, but right after I finished this one I got another commission. Fingers crossed on me making enough money for Japan! ><

I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I tried very hard to make it look like something that might, in some strange universe, be passable as a real book cover. Hopefully my next piece won't be as painful. I started over a couple of times (partly because I was learning a new program, but really because I'm bad at digital painting). I did this entirely with PaintTool Sai, a program like PS--but free, lean and REALLY fun! My PS died on me, so. Yay open-source programming!

I am kind of bummed that I can't spend as much time on personal projects this summer...Between teaching and these jobs, I'm drained. :P

relevant news

'Not to plug anything here, but I just discovered that Deviant Art is doing something that you guys might find cool and useful for a change.
I know, I hate Deviant Art, but apparently now they have a tool that lets you build a simple portfolio website.

I made a quick one, but I think I'll probably continue working on the one I've been building in Dreamweaver these past few weeks because I don't want DA's logo on the bottom of my page, and I want to do some awesome, custom things.

Anyway, I thought you guys might be interested in this if you don't want to purchase a domain name or hosting service and you don't feel like ripping your hair out over uncooperative CSS
