(i'm so sorry my online nickname is from Kim Possible i was ten)
ANYWAY. How y'all doin'? I realised I haven't written a new journal for a bit so I thought I'd let you guys know whats happening with my various projects, since my uploads have MAJORLY died down since November.
So what happened? Well I started my first job placement, and got to work on a kids cartoon! I don't wanna say which because I'd rather keep my professional and fandom work separate, but it was a fantastic experience! Totally wrecked me though. Then Christmas happened which is always busy (but it was fantastic to have a Christmas holiday where I WASN'T panicking about coursework and deadlines), then back to work for two weeks. Unfortunately, in early January... my computer started playing up. It would suddenly cut out power and reboot instantly, which was both annoying and concerning as I'd paid a lot of money for my new PC. After a lot of back and forth with the company I bought it from, and with my warranty people, including running tests and reinstalling Windows and the SAME problem still happening, it had to be sent over to England to have the power supply replaced. Yay. But it's now arrived back, with a better power supply, so hopefully I'll be able to get creative again very soon once I reinstall everything! I find working on my laptop to be a lot more restricting, and while my slate PC is great for drawing on, the battery isn't always so hot.
Now, recently I've been on a bit of a pony kick, so to those of you who aren't watching for the ponies - SINCERE APOLOGIES! Which brings me to the Albion Region. I really, REALLY wanna get a move on with this project again, and I have a few unreleased mons on the hard drive of my PC (including some Basilisks to match my Cockatrice line which I can't decide on a typing for and some... salmon), but being honest, I'm having a bit of an inspiration and motivation block. I wanna try and fill the dex out to 100-150 mon. So I was wondering... any of you guys have any ideas? Any myths and legends of the British Isles I haven't touched yet? Maybe some cool animals I haven't thought of? Or maybe another pop culture reference. Whatever it is, if you think of a cool idea, throw it at me and if I use it, I'll make sure to give you credit!
So thats a wee update from me! Now to clear my desk in preparation for the return of the PC...
