Or better known to me as "How Grim Tales should have been" but that isn't as catchy. Originally, it was known as "Grim Tales from the Surface Above"and may as well return back to it, I'm not sure.

If you are unaware, Grim Tales is a comic hosted on Snafu-Comics and produced by Bleedman. The story is suppose to follow the children of Grim ad Mandy, characters from "The Grim Tales of Billy and Mandy". The comic use to be good, but now it's nothing but pointless fanservice of a character very few people like on Snafu (Chi, the daughter of Aku). I hate what happened to the comic, so I decided to play some of my own fan canon and fanfiction writing skills and develop a story that I think Grim Tales should have followed.

The story (Grim Tales from Up Above) is going to focus on Mini-Mandy (Minnie) as she explores Earth in it's post-apocalyptic state. It picks up about here: grim.snafu-comics.com/index.ph… from the comic and continues on a different path. Ever since The flashback was shown, about the state of Megaville and Him obliterating it, I couldn't help but wonder about the condition up there and started theorizing. Minnie becoming bitter and angry at Jr is a perfect opportunity for her to venture out on a quest to "rediscover" herself as well as display what I think the surface world is about.

You'll see a new, darker KND, old heroes and children of other heroes, memorable locations (Not New York because that's in everything), and the grim setting that the world has been left in as Minnie goes on to find out who she is. 

Unfortunately, this story is not high on the priority list. When I'm not working on school, Mass Effect 3, or pony stories (I have six I am working on of my own, and another handful of editing jobs), I'm then drawing and then this story comes into play. Luckily thought, everything is outlined. 

Point of this journal:
I have been working on the final "piece" that would leave me comfortable to start churning out chapters. That is actually the design of Minnie. I can't decide what to do. The first design was a sort of echo of a Adepta Sororitas (Sister of Battle) from Warhammer 40K and Ezio Auditore's Armor of Altair. This was to give her a sort of "Gothic warrior" feel that would work for her personality. I also have a difficult time seeing her wear pants, and no one wants to wear a dress/skirt into a post-apocalyptic wasteland so the assassin robes seemed to be a good compromise. The second design is much, much more reminiscence of Edward Kenway's robes from Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. More faded, leather armor instead of metal, giving more of a "scavenger/apocalyptic look" to the outfit.     

I am drafting the two versions on my tablet right now. I have previously created the "Gothic warrior" image, but now redoing it to get the proportions right. I'm going to post both, maybe with some light coloring done to them, and then decide what to do before I move out of the outlining stage and into the writing stage.   
Considering that August is when I use to start high school, this is saying something. 

This has been one of, if not THE worst month I've ever had. I go into detail on my FiMFiction blog, found here: www.fimfiction.net/blog/370688…

But for those that don't want the long version (it even has pictures!) here's the run down. 

1: Grandma sick in the hospital with a kidney infection. 
2: Aunt is getting a divorce, but is also an alcoholic. She settled her divorce, got in a fight with her soon to be ex-husband and family, and call the police during the argument, which was started by her sending drunk text messages. Police found her shitfaced drunk, AND using prescription medications that do not belong to her, but her ex-boss (reasoning for loosing last job was revealed!) 
3: My favorite cat got put down. 
4: Not going to Salt Lake Comic Con because costume isn't completed because of shitty month. 
5: Weather has been fucking around a bit with grain harvest and my work schedule. Can't disk in the rain. 
6: Exercise Program failed. 
7: Snafu member threatening suicide. 
8: Unproductive as hell when it comes to reading, writing, editing, or drawing. It's like I suffer from ADHD whenever I sit down to try and do any of those, and must pace that damn hallway. 
9: 16 days until school starts, dammit. 

I need a vacation. 
10: Can't get one until December. 
Eyeballing some coloring ideas. by Blordy
Eyeballing some coloring ideas.
I did these on my tablet, using Sketchbook for Galaxy, in an attempt to get use to drawing digitally, and to try coloring. Because I honestly have no idea what I'm doing. I'd like to get to the state where I am using some sort of official drawing program on my computer and a actual drawing tablet, but I feel like I need to get better before I spend that kind of money.

Anyways, each eye has a different way of being colored. Most of them contain similar features because I fell in love with the air brush tools.

Majin Vegeta by Blordy
Majin Vegeta
Grad Project for Faces 2, Majin Vegeta.

I love Vegeta's overconfident attitude, especially in the Team Four Star abridged series of DBZ.

Faces 2 by Blordy
Faces 2
This is the second part of my faces study. In it, I used the different way to sketch heads that I mentioned in "Faces 1". It's better, much better in my opinion, than Faces 1. 

Not much more on it. I have Majin Vegeta as my Grad project. To tell the truth, I was going to do 3 more heads, but then I got so sick and tired of heads, that I jumped straight to Vegeta. I have a close up of him that I'll upload latter. 

So, that's it for heads. On to bodies, poses, and action lines. 

After that, clothing. 

Then objects, weapons, vehicles, and Gundams.

Thank you so much for adding my work to your favourites. I had actually found your account before but I was not sure if you still used it so I did not say anything.

Yup. This account still gets used and will hopefully get a little bit more use out of it as somethings pick up and when Blood Studios gets more officially formed.

Been awhile, not sure if you remember me or not, but I used to hang around the Snafu forums a bit a few years ago and I just wanted to pop in and say hey is all.

Been alright, in a community collage now, writing wise I did some slice of lifeish original fiction for a while, and now I've moved onto a DBZ novel, with some squeals planned following it.
