So, it's been roughly six weeks since I wrote about my new job, and I think it's time for an update on that. I had mentioned at the time that I would look towards doing some real work on my various projects once I had re-acclimated to having a job, and I think I've finally reached that point. It's taken a bit longer to reach this point than I had anticipated, but I couldn't have anticipated getting six (I think) major snowstorms over the past month-and-a-half. Indeed, the relatively nearby city of Boston, Massachusetts had its snowiest winter ever! (And the snowfall for my own state's capital of Providence is listed further down in that article.) But at any rate, with the storms finally abating, I can finally devote some energy to these things that I've been wanting to do. So, here's what I'll be planning to do over the course of this month:

Simfile work - It's time to finish the Contra (Medley Mix) simfile that I had started last year. Currently, the simfile does not have a banner or background image, but it does possess four of the five intended stepcharts (lacking only the Medium difficulty chart, oddly enough). Thus, there isn't all that much work that still needs to be done. Of course, this also isn't really art-related overall, so further updates on this will be confined to my tumblr.

Artwork - This, of course, is the important bit for my deviantART account. I never did finish the Day 13 and 14 pictures for the NATG IV event, and intend to fix that oversight. I had the sketches for these two days completed before I got hired, and even have the first one roughly half-vectored by this point, so I'm intending to finish and post these by the end of the week. I'm not sure when, or even if, I'll do a Day 15 picture, but I rather like the idea of using the "Draw Any Past Theme" concept to use a theme from the original NATG, which had occured before I became aware of FiM's existence. In addition to these pics, I've also been periodically working on a set of sketches that will be uploaded as a "Weekly Sketches" compilation, despite technically not being done over a single week. These sketches focus on TLS rp characters, specifically on some that I have not drawn before.

And that is all I'm planning to do at the moment; the month's already half over after all. But if I am indeed able to get moving on things again, then I'll be able to start working on some of my other projects and ideas in the near future. As a side note, I still haven't fully caught up with dA messages, and will be planning to finally fix that before the end of the month as well.

Which picture from my Comical Sketch Compilation would you be interested in seeing in full color?

You're quite welcome.  Such an image will be quite helpful for keeping equine anatomical terms straight.  (For example, I had thought that the withers were part of the back end of a horse, not between the shoulder blades.)

Heh! A lot of people apparently make the same assumption about withers. Now that mechanization mostly has replaced horses in everyday applications and the majority of the human population lives in cities rather than the country, an awful lot of information that once was important for the average person to know is falling, or has fallen, out of widespread use.

Of course, the terms used in the chart are unique to English. I’m sure they differ widely across other languages, though some Western European languages may use cognates in some cases.
