Well! It's already been over half a year since I posted that last journal, so I might as well update my status.

So yeah...that "11-month" library assignment actually only ended up lasting 3 months and a week because we were being way more productive than they anticipated, so the past three months involved me (trying) to make headway on Intergalactic Fusion. I was wondering what to do for a backup plan in case they couldn't find an assignment for me anytime soon, and soon, I hit upon the idea of learning how to code. I figured, "Man, my boyfriend's already got it made with a full time gig right out of college, and look at me here. Why can't I do it too?" So naturally, being stubborn enough to try again despite failing at Javascript in college (though this was during PMD-E Mission 7 and I was juggling like two comics at once, so maybe not the best example...), I decided to try out the multitude of free resources online that teaches you how to code. Or at least just Codecademy.com and Freecodecamp.com for now.

ALTHOUGH; as it turns out, I'm gonna have to put that on hold for a while or continue that low-key since, well, I finally got a new library assignment! This time around, it should (hopefully!) last at least one year minimum and five years maximum. And that starts on July 12th, so I'll be busy once again.

Though since it really has been a while since I've posted any more of Intergalactic Fusion and I said I'd move it to August (and since it doesn't look like I've won that Scholastic competition...), I'll actually start posting pages then. Even though I've only got like Pages 1-12 done (and 60-71 for the contest, lolololol), I figure, once I catch up to Page 12, I'll just post them on a "whenever I get around to finishing them" basis from then on out. Good thing Book 2 will only be 151 pages this time around, because it still feels like it'll be a challenge to get through them all even more so than usual, hahaha.

I'll also most likely get around to putting Book 1 up for sale soon since, again, I don't think I was one of the winners of that contest. Gonna wait until I build up my funds a little more for that, though. Definitely will let you all know when that happens in a future update.

Anyway, the coding projects I did manage to get done on my own include these cool little one-page interactive things:

Super Wonderful Quiz Show!
Nuke the E's!
A very much WIP portfolio site of sorts

If anyone out there reading this happen to be programmers, definitely feel free to let me know about any additional resources you would recommend. Even though I know a lot more about programming than I ever did before, I'm still very much a beginner at the moment.

Also, totally calling it now: I'm probably gonna be super distracted by Miitopia when it comes out on July 28th. I've been playing the demo and enjoyed it so much that I've already got my entire party planned out and everything. Heck, maybe I might draw a few things from my playthrough if it's hilarious enough. Hehe.

Hi, I’m Amy. I’m an enthusiastic comic artist who has been practicing since the age of 14, though I have been drawing all my life. Although Pokémon is only one of my favorite things, the sheer diversity of creatures in it, as well as the number of Pokémon groups here on dA that have been created with a focus on creative storytelling, have made it so that the vast majority of my submissions have been Pokémon comics, pictures, and stories. Other franchises I like primarily include those of the science fiction genre, especially the Metroid series, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, Lilo and Stitch, Wall-E, Invader Zim, Ben 10, and other such things, though lately, I've also taken a liking to pretty much ANY good story, regardless of genre. In fact, I actually have a crazy number of interests that aren't even begun to be listed, especially since I've started watching a lot of anime in recent years, so check out the "Interests" tab at the bottom of this spiel to see more.

Since I'm both a writer and an artist, I tend to write quite a bit of artist’s comments on every piece of art I submit. Except for most of my comic pages nowadays since I know people will be too engaged by the story to stop and read everything on every page. But for those occasional large, standalone images? I make no promises, hahaha.

Right now, I'm working at a sweet job as a contractor at a library, while continuing to draw my comics on the side. Maybe one day, it'll become popular enough so that I can live off of money I could possibly make off of Patreon, but until then, I'm happy just having it be my favorite hobby.



Commissions are currently closed! Totally swamped with work. At least I'm making enough money at the moment!

Stuff I despise: Any and all trollfaces, flagrant amounts of cursing, jerks, inappropriate material, inappropriate jokes, etc. I'll add more to this growing list of things to avoid whenever talking to me.

Oh, and one more thing... 日本語を分かりますよ。日本語もタイプすれば、自由に話しましょう!(I can understand Japanese, so if you can type it too, feel free to do so with me!)

Given you know javascript and certain coding, would you be interested in beta testing a free game demo that Kirbopher recently released and got fully funded? Apparently those who pledge can have their OCs in the game itself, so long as they're not copyrighted.

Unfortunately no. Last time was fun, but I think it's worn me out for the next five years at least, hahaha. XD
