The Unpublished Portfolio: 01

So... first off, let me tell you a little story...

A few months ago, my friend (or whatever you call her) got the idea to pay me for a drawing... but it would have to be "anything I want". I was like "sure!"

What I wasn't expecting was how much effort I would be putting into this.

Or how much drawings I would end up making.

Or how... different the art would end up being like.

I've never drawn stuff like that, let me tell ya. Before, I mean. I guess I should thank her, because I wouldn't have... err... yeah.

Much more mature things than I'd like to admit. Not that it would really change anything... but... that sorta makes Got the Point? my bleached underpants, hm?

Let's take the latest installment, of which I am still working on... Here's the exact words used (copy and paste rules!)

"Hey, Rai!

Guess what!? I've got another job for ya! Lucheek's profile cleaning has given me an idea... I'd like for you to actually draw one of your abandoned storylines for me! Given the theme of Lucheek's cleaning (JACK fancomics, natch), I'd like for it to be "The Wrath of Jack", mkay?
Not just any reimagining, though... I'd like it to be written as if it were canon to your current write up of GTP?! That means Mocula hoodoo-voodoo and whatnot! Secret agents! Whucha!
And yes... I'd like a decent violence level... don't go overboard, but don't get unrealistically underboard, either. That doesn't mean gratuitous blood, though. A "Vega kills Shanic" level of violence. Is that clear enough?
Nudity level? Same as you'd allow in GTP?. I mean, I want it written as if you could shove it into the comic somewhere, so... right.
Same goes for language. That means only about one dammit in the entire thing, if even that.
I'd also like the cameo by JACK to be gone. Or at least noticeably gone. Know'dai mean?
A minimum of 5 pages and a maximum of 15. You can definitely handle that. It's an incredibly short story.
I'd like to see what you'll do with Cass, considering that she's not... you know... anymore. Same with Mynk, considering she was one of Jaccent's first victims in the original story... and now that she can resurrect and is Jack's friend-friend-ifyouknowwhatImean-friend... Yeah.

That's your mission, should you choose to accept. There's $30 in it for ya if you do it right. There's a guarantee of $10... so... you'll get SOMETHING for it, at least.

Last detail: Black and white. Color just wouldn't fit the style.

Okay! Byechas!
^_~/ *wink* g'bie! Rain Sunrise Falls."

So... that's how it goes.
Another thing: She wants me to publish it here and on DA when I'm done with it, and after evaluation. In the meantime, here's a link to the control art of the main character from said storyline: Jaccent.

Just a heads-up of things to come.

Does Mossy need a hug?

Yeah. I think Mossy needs a hug. And a cookie.

I have something to say.

I'm a furry.

Abandon all information you've learned about furries up to this point. The actual definition is "person that likes anthropomorphic animals." I know I didn't help myself with that comment and I know it. Whatever. I like the art.

Now that that's out of the way...

I was just surfing around the Utah section of Wikifur, when I decided to make THIS.

I rock today. If it's not deleted by tomorrow, then I don't fail!

Let's see... let's see...

(Yes, this was a slow news week. Why do you ask?)

Boo! Ahahaha!

So as you may, or more likely, may not know, every year at October, I get to work at the most wonderful place from 6 to Midnight... The Haunted Woods! *thunder*

The Haunted Woods (hereforth abbreviated as THW) is but one of the many projects created by Dave Davis. I'll do another blog post on him. He's elling awesome. Every year, he takes inspiration from the newest fad scary movies and make them reality in the hand made labyrinth that is the woods.

This year, the biggest theme is My Bloody Valentine. We knew this from last July. What we didn't know is how far he would take it! He... built... a... big... freaking... MINE in the middle of the woods! He created tunnels! He created a MAZE out of the ground! It's better than it sounds.

Every year, it's more like he procrastinates on every project. Every year, whatever he was hoping to build, it would never get done. This year, my face was like 8-| for a full twenty minutes. It's THAT good.

But anyway... What do I do at THW? I sell food. Well... my family sells food, I just work for them. We sell burgers and burger type accessories. At one point in the past, we also sold hot dogs. But... those are cheap. Too easy to make. Too... cheap. All anybody wanted to buy were these side orders! So we dropped them from the menu and now our main items, Indian Tacos (or ICBs (Indian Cheeseburgers)) are the top orders.

So what does Dave do this year? Hire somebody that make hot dogs. And nachos. And chili (our trademark, btw). And popcorn. And fountain drinks. And... she's driving away our sales! She's selling all of the snack food that we can't carry! And works less at it, too!

And I can't hate her because she's the nicest person I've ever met!!!


We've been going out of business throughout the year. The only thing that could save us is THW... and... the professional caterers that they've hired are killing us.

I never thought we would ever close down shop.

We've been going solid for twelve years now. I've been with them for nine. We've spent today trying to make our stand look more impressive... but... I'm... pessimistic. To say the best.

Meh. Whatever. I've got another shift to get to now. I'd... better go now.
