Sleep Required by TarriPup
Sleep Required
I have NEVER had a year like this. Not only has it been the busiest year academically, but I have also had to put up with a string of family deaths and scares... I really have no idea how I managed to make it this far, and accomplish what I was able to, but I did. My final assignments are done, and handed in, on time.
All it took was the sacrifice of sleep at night, or at least, the majority of it. I seriously would work on my assignment until just before 4am, before being at the mercy of my computer going through a render process, which takes time. This is where I can do nothing but actually sleep - at least, until I wake up to my alarm, which I had set for sometime after 5am so that I could continue working on said assignment.
Nights like these were building up, and my emotional and mental capabilities were beyond strained, but hey, I made it.
Now to wait on results...

Have a tired pony-me. I have had full nights of sleep since, but my sleep pattern is still a bit out of whack, so tiredness comes to visit at strange times during the day still.

Oh yeah, and that lack of art submission? Busy. Yes I know. But surprisingly I have discovered I have unfinished art littered in my art folder which I have started during the course of this year, so... I suppose we can expect them to be finished and start showing up over the next month or so?
It is so good to be free from pressing academic matters, finally. Well, at least until the summer break is over.

TarriPup's Profile Picture
Artist | Student | Film & Animation
New Zealand

Name: Tarri (nickname)
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Blond
Astrological Sign: Libra-Scorpio Cusp
Birthmark: Red triangular mark. Turns purple in the cold.
Occupation: Student

Senior Student currently living in Invercargill, South Island, New Zealand, in my last year studying the Bachelor of Digital Media - Animation (Degree).

From the township of Dargaville in the Winterless North, on the island of the... uh... North Island, New Zealand, I gained my first Diploma in Digital Multimedia Production at Northtec in Whangarei (NI, NZ) before trading the warm-to-hot part of Aotearoa where no one knows what a winter is, to the most southern city this island archipelago, situated at New Zealand's butt.
But this butt blows no greenhouse winds to keep us warm - instead, I live in a realm of polar winds blowing in from the Antarctic, and where hail is bountiful.

I continue to study and live here, wondering what the hell I was thinking.

Along with the excitement of animating and drawing, along with the personal hell that are essays and research projects, I am also a published graphic novelist - sadly, not for sale under conventional means, and only one volume published at this time.

My goal in life is to get my art to awesome specs and to write awesome stories.
And possibly animate the hell out of them if I have time.
Well let's see... where to start?
I'll try to keep this journal as succinct as possible, mostly because I'm still sick, and thus tired. Plus when you are asleep you don't tend to notice the symptoms of being sick, skipping hours of being sick and thus providing somewhat of a shortcut to being well again.
Don't deny it, I bet you all take this sleep shortcut yourselves... ADMIT.
Then provide cake.

So let's make a list.

Classes, Assignments... basically, education stuff.

I am closing in to the last day for 2014 before Summer Holidays begin. I have so much work to do in regards to my major assignment I am in a huge panic as to whether I will get it finished on time.
Probably not, unless I can miraculously achieve an impossible result within a tiny amount of time.
Falling sick doesn't help - I have been having faint spells and can't sit in front of a screen for long, and I get tired very easily now. And I need to maximise what time I have in the day.
Peachy, ain't it?
And I'm still carrying the emotional weight of everything bad that has happened this year, which doesn't help.
But I guess time will tell.
Once the holidays hit, I will have some free time. Finally.

New Art

Due to everything that has happened, plus having not much time to do it in, art has been very scarce (if you haven't already noticed this year's lack of submissions from yours truly). Someone has already asked why I haven't been doing art as of late, whether I was taking a break or whatever other reason there might be.
The reason is pretty much the above category, and while I have submitted the odd piece a couple times this year, there is actually more - I just haven't uploaded them yet. Some of them ARE complete, while others are almost complete.
If I had to guesstimate, I may very well have about 20 pieces of art which are either finished or almost finished.
Yeah... I said about 20. So I suppose I have found time to do art given that number... I just haven't had time to submit.
So... expect a mass submission of art sometime before the end of the year. Unless I forget. Which I shouldn't.
Because a lot of the art I want either finished or uploaded.
So that is something to look forward to, if you enjoy eying my art. :P

Anyhoo I think I'll leave that for now. Mostly because as I said, I'm not well, so I think I will go to bed now.

What kind of place are would you relish living in?

Accepting commissions?
TarriPup Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014  Student Filmographer
I haven't prior, however since the summer holidays are on, I may be swayed into doing some~ :meow:

What did you have in mind?
And what kind of price range are you aiming for? :)

I want to get artist renditions of some of my Pokemon Fusions. Do you think this is within your realm? I want to see them as if they were with trainers or in the wild. I was thinking digital art to possibly make into a tshirt to design to wear my creatures :)

Oh nice, custom t-shirts! I once made a pokemon team t-shirt for one of my best friends, she totally loved it!

Let's see... well, I already assumed you wanted me to do Pokemon Fusions (I had a quick squizz through your gallery when you added me to your watchlist).
I can't see any problems with getting a Pokemon Fusion out, just be aware that if something important pops up I will have to delay a little, but it shouldn't be an issue, and I would keep you in the loop. :)

I do have a few levels of art (at least, that is how I label it), so you will just have to let me know which of my pieces you are comparing with what you have in mind, so I know what you are after. :)
Also, price range. Be sure to let me know how much you are thinking you will part with on this, so I know if the quality you are seeking and the amount you are parting with are feasible enough. I don't quite have set prices at this time, since I haven't had time to do commissions prior to now. Basically, it's almost like a negotiation. :)
