My dog bit me Monday night (he got his foot stuck, panicked, and bit me several times when I tried to get him out... if he would have just SAT STILL it wouldn't have hurt! sheesh...), to the point where I probably should have gone to the hospital, so until the weekend all projects are kind of on hold. It's healing all right, it just hurts to do anything at all with my thumb. Thankfully it wasn't my drawing hand, and I don't use my left thumb for typing, but for everything else I'm pretty gimpy. I am doing sketches, just nothing more involved than that until it's healed a bit more.
I've decided I AM going to do an art contest again this year, but I'm not sure if I should open up a new group specifically for the contest or if I should just post it all here again. I got WAY more entries last year than I was expecting (40-something, when I was expecting maybe 12-15), so I think it would be more organized as a group, but what do you guys think? Do contest groups work out very well, or should I just host it on my site as I did last year?
And my emoticon refers to my injured thumb. Sorry if I've seemed emo lately with my emoticon choices, hee-yuck.
Happy Halloween everyone! I probably won't do anything since my birthday is two days later, and I'd rather spend money on an amusement park and delicious food than a silly costume and booze. Or maybe at nearly 27 I am just too much of a grandmother to enjoy going out the way I used to. Besides, Japan doesn't really celebrate Halloween anyway... you'd think we do because of all the Halloween related art you see from anime and manga artists, but it is a lie!
