So, last Monday, I was following my fairly typical routine - I'd been out getting some things for my mom, picked up some lunch while I was out, and after returning home decided to go downstairs to my computer room to eat and play some games.

In order to do this I have to go down a set of steps I'd been down at least once (probably more frequently) a day, every day, for over 15 years.  I've fallen up and down those stairs, including tumbles all the way from the top to the concrete floor at the bottom.  Never once have I managed to hurt myself in the process.

Apparently I was due!

This time I slipped, fell a measely 3 steps to the landing (halfway down) and broke both bones on my lower right leg.  In the interim I've been in and out of the hospital and had surgery, including having a 13" titanium rod inserted into my right leg. <@_@>;  Yes I am a cyborg-squirrel now.

At any rate though - I'm recovering - I have access to a laptop and the internet now so my presence online should begin to return to something resembling normalcy.  I'm not sure about art in this state - more because of the lack of a suitable work environment that can accommodate my bum leg than anything else (but if I can swing it I plan to do at least some art while injured too).

Anyway, just wanted to let everyone know what's up.

Current projected looks to be 6 weeks to weight bearing, 6 months to full recovery.  That said I'll know better after my follow up appointment in a couple of weeks.
Draw Your Friends 2 - Mantid by mistformsquirrel
Draw Your Friends 2 - Mantid
Done for another thread on GiantITP.com, this time I got to draw for a good friend of mine, Mantid!  The theme was magic, and knowing his love of anime and Sailor Moon, I went with a Mantid-themed dark magical girl type character.  I was really pleased with how this came out; though I had to redo the background as the original was much too busy.

Here's the thread in case you're curious about all the other art produced - most of it's quite good!

Go here!

Bonus pic 2 was the one done for me by the wonderful Kasanip <^.^> her art looks like what I wish mine did!

I did some art for an avatar event on the Giantitp forums and was quite pleased how it came out.  I drew it at 117x117 pixels, so that's why it's so very blocky.  The small size is the actual display size, but I blew it up for display on DA to show detail, insofar as there are any to show.

So yeah, Atomie Yumi, at your service!
