For the first time, I feel like I got the first character sketch done right! I messed around with my new pens and ended up even coloring it a bit (gasp!). The second character in this set appeared yesterday, but is going to start off my Sparkler entry—let’s get this started!

Working on character designs for the submission I’m trying to make sense of for the Sparkler magazine. Drawing characters/scenes out helps with the writing process, so I end up doing both simultaneously!

Almost done ‘coloring’ my Tortall Comics Project entry! I planned to use greyscale to start. The markers I have come in a set of six, with even blue- and brown-based greys. I had to go out yesterday and buy a new pack because the first was dying bad. xD Good thing I didn’t skimp out it, though—they look much better!!

Gotta figure out what to do with the backgrounds. xD Definitely making decisions as I go along rather than planning.

Hello, everyone! This is Tammy’s assistant, Jae, here to announce something the two of us started kicking around as an idea when we saw how many followers Tammy was getting.

SO, HERE IT IS:

3,000 Follower Giveaway Celebration!

To celebrate passing this tumblr landmark, we’re going to be giving away 5 signed copies of her books (one for each winner). Here’s how it’s going to work.

1. There will be 5 winners total. Each will get to pick ONE of Tammy’s currently-published novels for signature. 

2. You MUST be following her blog in order to participate. After all, this is a thank-you to all of those who pushed us over the 3,000 mark.

3. Each individual is allowed TWO entries, NO MORE. That’s a reblog and a like. 

4. Entries will be allowed until March 25th, and this post will be periodically  reblogged on Tammy’s tumblr until then to give everyone a fair shake. 

5. Contest-only blogs will not be named winners.

On the 26th, I’ll pick 5 usernames at random and message the winners. This means you have to have your ask boxes open at that time. Winners will need to get back to me within a week with the book that they want signed and where I should send it. If I don’t receive a message from a winner within that week, or I can’t reach them via ask, I’ll pick someone new. Once I’ve heard from everyone, we’ll post a public congratulation to let everyone know that the contest is over.

Good luck, and thank you all for being here!

Woot!
