.: Brief update :.

As usual, it’s all quiet on the West Suffolkshire front. I’m still looking for a job, and also hoping to someday find a way of getting my now-finished Boaz book published too… :hmm:

At the same time, I’m trying to get out of my drawing rut. I’ve been pretty uninspired lately, artwise.

Right now, I’m just back from baking a batch of biscuits from a shop-bought cookie mix that was left at the local food bank where I do voluntary work. Since the helpers deemed it a “non-essential” item, they let me have it. They’ve come out nicely, it seems.
These are to come with us to Sizewell, where our church is having a weekend away from this Friday afternoon until Sunday, for a time of fellowship, devotions and Bible studies together. (This will, of course, mean I’ll be offline during this weekend too, since I doubt there’ll be even a Wifi signal for my phone to reach here)

Another day out still to come, :icondoublesnl: is coming over from Holland in a couple of weeks time, and with :iconeuan-the-echidhog: we’re hoping to go down to Southend at the weekend to spend a day with :iconLukeTheF0x:
Always great to get a chance to hang out together! :aww:


Meanwhile, as to the main title of this journal, I grabbed a slot from :iconmarwangreencritter: for one of these “comment first and get a feature” things – with the condition that I have to follow it up myself, so here it is. It’s only right for me to honour the rules.

.: Empty Slots :.

The first 10 people who will comment this journal will get a feature in:
I will choose one of their OC I like the most and 3 deviations from their gallery that I think are amazing!

If you comment, please do the same on your own journal, putting the original journalist or the tagger in the first slot.
The idea of that is not to get a free feature but to spread around some art for everyone!

Btw, I should point out, you do have to have enough decent art and at least one OC for me to choose from, if you wish for a slot – it’s no use my going through a gallery of a few scrappy drawings that look half-finished or rushed. ^^;
Also, because I’m away this weekend, I may or may not actually get to finish filling this in until next week.


Anyway… the slots:

1. :iconmarwangreencritter:
Fave OC — Updated design 2014 by MarwanGreenCritter (obvious choice) ;p

Hercule and Boadicea (Teenagers) by DCLeadboot
Hercule and Boadicea (Teenagers)
If only to get out of my drawing rut, here's another quick vector-trace colouring of a fairly recent pencil sketch.
Here's Hercule and Boadicea, the children of Leroy "Hydrex" and Pearl Rudderbuck - as teenagers.

What do you reckon? Should I keep them as children or teenagers?
