You know the kicker? This is a SMATTERING of the art I did this year. This doesn't include half of the bookmarks I've drawn, and only one of the over 50 portraits I've done.

Plus I think I lost a few things here and there. 0.o

Fanfiction Round Up
Wow, ok so this year went by fast. I had so many fics I wanted to write and didn't even get through half of them. Much more Bucky/Toro, Toro/Anne, and Torch&Toro fics that I had in mind and they just never got written. Not much did; I was light on fics this year, but here's what I did get up :)

Super Dads and Baby Sarah Universe (Bucky/Steve & Adopted Daughter)
Going Home
After finishing up a mission and reporting to Nick Fury, Steve is finally free to go home and enjoy some time with his husband Bucky and young daughter, Sarah.
Lazy Afternoon
Steve and Bucky spend some down time with their daughter Sarah.
Simple Things
Slice of Life fic in which Steve has thrown a Halloween party and is enjoying the time with friends and family

A Change In Venue
The biggest shock and the most pleasant surprise of Bucky's post-Winter Soldier life is discovering that there were other men who liked to wear dresses
Giving Beyond Your Means
Steve's up to something. Bucky aims to stop whatever it is.

Torch and Toro Family Fics
First Time for Everything
It's the first time Jim realizes some of the problems that can come with living with a teenager and the first time Toro calls him pappy.
Natasha listens to Jim's messages while he is "indisposed" and learns of something that needs to be dealt with if Clint wants to keep a lid on everything that happened, especially to Jim.
Inside Looking Out
Jim isn't too keen on the use of Androids in the Alien franchise
To Mr. Scott Summers and Whomever Else it May Concern
Toro is fed up with the X-men and their attempt to have all mutants in their school
Cruel War
Jim never gave a second thought about Toro being his partner when they fought gangsters and hoodlums, but now as a battleship takes them closer to the Pacific Front, Jim begins to have his doubts.

Bucky/Toro Fics
Come Together, Come Apart
Moments in Bucky and Toro's lives that either brought them together or pulled them apart, or maybe as little of both.
Just To Be There
Letting everyone things he's dead means Bucky misses out on some pretty big changes in his the lives of his friends. So he puts his skills to use to at least do what he can.

Once Upon a Time
Just That
Jefferson has been trapped in his house, making hats and trying to get back to Grace for the last 18 years without anything significant changing. Then Regina shows up with a surprise and later a gift.

As I try to do each year, I included art with the Holiday Cards I sent out, so here is a run down of the art :)

I hope those of you who got these got an image you like (not everyone requested something, so I pulled stuff from interest lists ^^).

The last of the Holiday Countdown art :
But never fear! More art will be comking up in a bit. I've got a Christmas Day sketch to post, the master post of all the card-art I sent out, some fest art (when I can post) and then because I'm crazy I'm doing art for The Twelve Days of Fandom. Maybe....

Days 18-25 )

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and has a bright New Year ahead.

btw: we had a white Christmas

I KNOW!!!!

FYI, I will be taking part in [community profile] fandom_stocking for the third year in a row :)
My own stocking is HERE

If you have one, let me know.
Otherwise I'll just do as much as I can for people who listed fandoms I love.
And once again, for those who do not follow My tumblr here's the roundup of Holiday artwork done this week :)

Days 10-16 )

Thought I’d show off the work place. Here’s a photo of what I shall call "my fine tuning station".

In other words, I'm far more of a traditional artist than a digital artist, so this isn’t really my art creation spot, but jsut about anything I put up online gets tweaked in photoshop either a lot (borders, backgrounds, text etc) or a little (color corrections, etc)

As you can see I’ve sorta got some favorit characters. And this is not even near all my cap/invaders/Bucky stuff, just what on my desk :D

Actually my favorite character is Toro Raymonds (you all know this XD), but he's not got much out there for him. I don't even think he usually is included in Invader group toys.

In other news:
I've started my holiday Countdown. I am to get one work of art done per day ("day" is flexible) until Christmas. These always hit Tumblr first and then I may or may not post them here in any kind of timely manner ^^;;

So if you want to see these as they go up:
If anyone is interested in a Christmas Card from me, don't forget to drop you name and address over on this post here.

And if you're sending out cards too, let me know :D
I love getting cards!
Work is going well, but there's a lot of negativity coming from some co-workers, which ever since they eliminated earphones at our desks is a bit harder to tune out.

So try and compensate thing's that are going well that I can list before my break ends:

1. I've gotten the highest number of commissions this year than I ever had before. I've got regular customers now. This is amazing to me and I'm loving it. I my complain (a lot) about the work, but to be honest, it's wonderful. I mean right now, I'm drawing the cutest little girl as She-Hulk, and her brother as Winter Soldier. This is fun.

2. On top of that, I just checked my paypal account and someone GAVE ME MONEY! Like really, they were so happy with the commission that they gave me a bonus out of the kindness of their heart. This just... I'm stoked. I'm have to write a thank you letter right now and I so want to just gush, I'm not even sure what to day and not sound crazy. But this is just awesome.

3. My husband continues to do well working with Elfa. I know he hates his steady job (mall security, can't blame him, especially this time of year), but he's loving Elfa, he's doig really well, and the extra money has been a GOD SEND. So that's going well.

4. I'm enough ahead on Christmas gifts that there's not a rush. I can actually sit back and enjoy shopping without fearing the bills :) We did a bang up job buying early this year, so not even the sudden attack of December Birthdays is an issue!

5. Conventions have been going well. I've make a steady enough profit to keep these going and it's been a blast :)

6. I got a bonus at work and my husband and I are going for a fancy and yummy dinner as soon as the gift certificate comes in :D FUN! Especially around the holidays. I wonder if I can justify buying a new dress LOL

7. I've got amazing friends both online and off who have been there for me and continue to be there for me and I'm happy. I may not have a huge group of close friends, but the ones I have rock. So thank you Elly, Kai, and Karla, and of course, my husband.

8. My job is going well and I work with one of the nicest easiest clients. Really I'm lucky.

9. Everyone at work is enthusiastic about giving to our local woman's shelter, Safe Haven. It's wonderful to be able to help a LOCAL orgnaization rather than the more impersonal giant ones.
If you are already sending out cards for the Holiday, consider participating in Deviantart's Holidya Card drive.

The simple explanagtion is, you send in a card (or cards)and they distribute them to patients in Hospitals across the US and even some outside the US.
The cards can be hand made or store bought.
