Hey guys. Today's just a lazy Sunday in the wake of Halloween (hope you all had a good one, by the way!) so I guess it's as good a time as any to write a new Journal.

First of all I want to apologize to all of you, my friends and watchers, for a couple of things. One, I've barely uploaded any artwork this year. Things have been kinda weird here since graduation and for various reasons, some of them major, some of them stupid, I just haven't been drawing as much as usual. It's a trend I'd like to turn around ASAP, but the pieces I'm working on now are all pretty ambitious and are taking longer than expected. Hopefully I'll have at least one of them up before this month is over, but I'm starting to think I've been quiet for so long that I've already lost most of my viewership.

Second, and more specifically to my friends, I want to apologize for my reclusive, flakey behavior. I don't know what it seems like from your point of view, but I promise you I haven't been consciously trying to distance myself from any of you. Things are just stressful right now, as they have been for well over a year, and I'm not as good at handling it as I'd like to be. I'm still a little bit scatterbrained, so-so at best at multitasking, and really, horribly, shamefully forgetful. None of that is any excuse for missing your events or going silent in your chatrooms, but the point I'm trying to make is it's the result of ineptitude, not apathy, and I really am sorry for it.

Now with that out of the way, I probably ought to talk about what art projects I'm working on right now.

*The big thing right now is the Halloween picture I've been working on. I've devoted most (probably too much) of my time this month trying to complete it in time for the holiday and, as you can plainly see now, I didn't make it in time. Luckily it's not specifically tied to Halloween so I can just keep working on it and upload it later this month. I've already given too many people hints about it so all I'll say here is it's a new take on one of my most popular older deviations.

*Before that I was putting most of my drawing time into the Godzilla-less Godzilla project that I made a journal about back in April. My idea is that the human race has finally made a weapon capable of cleanly, permanently killing kaiju and has installed it on the latest version of Mechagodzilla. The UN sends it on a world tour to eliminate high priority threats like Destoroyah, Ghidorah, and of course the King of the Monsters himself. The mission is a success, but humanity learns too late that their actions have had severe and unexpected consequences. Forces beyond their understanding send the world into a state of chaos, and with Mechagodzilla out of commission after it's final battle with Godzilla, the UN is powerless to intervene. The only thing standing between us and total extinction are all the smaller, weaker monsters that the UN didn't deem dangerous enough to kill. In April I asked you all to vote on who you wanted on that team, and in response to those results I've made the main line up Anguirus, King Caesar, Rodan, Baragon, Gorosaurus, and Titanosaurus. Other popular options from the poll may or may not appear as secondary characters. I won't give the full 26-monster roster away, but it's mostly comprised of older, more obscure characters, with as few of the modern standbys as I could manage.

*On the Toho train of thought, I've also been debating on posting some of my past, scrapped ideas for Godzilla stories. Before I started to develop the Stopmo-Goji story I had plans for a different Godzilla universe that never got off the ground, and I also have synopsis' written for five more Stopmo-Goji sequels. I'm not keen on most of it, and there are a lot of overlapping elements in them that I guess could be seen as spoilers for what I'm writing now, but maybe there are people who'd want to read it anyway?

*There are also some personal projects I've been working on in private, namely two video game concepts. I don't really believe they have a chance of ever being made, but I enjoy thinking about that kind of thing anyway and have been messing around with them in my spare time for a few years now. I haven't uploaded them mostly because they're not finished yet and, laughably enough, because I'm kind of paranoid about putting them up. I don't really think they're good enough to steal, but if someone did decide to and started making a profit off it, well... that'd be pretty frigging awful. If any of you know precautions against that sort of thing and think I should bring them to DA then maybe I could be convinced, but otherwise I'll continue keeping them to myself.

*Lastly, I have to mention Savage Destiny, which continues to be that one project I think about literally every day but somehow never upload anything for. I think the main reason this is happening is that I don't know what format to present it in. I said a while back that I didn't care anymore and was just going to start uploading monsters without a story, but so far I haven't been able to make myself do that. The narrative is just way too important. At the same time, though, there have been all these other, more self-contained ideas popping up, like WOTM2 and Godzilla and all that, and they start to take priority because I already know how to do them and roughly how long it'll take. It's something I can actually plan around and set goals for. So far I can't say the same for SD so it's really hard to jump into. I have the "who", "what", and "why", but not the "how" or "when". It's frustrating, but for the time being I don't really have any other choice but to keep thinking about it.

Apparently Frontier has a new variant of Yama Tsukami… I aint sure what an "origin species" is though, despite the name sorta flat out stating it. What does it mean to Monster Hunter, I guess is what I want to know. Also, of its the "origin" of the Tsukami line, I kinda would expect something more primitive.

video of it…

Starting to wonder if the new Final Boss for the MHX really is a relative. It seems more likely every day.

Yeah, I've seen this thing before, it turns red when it's in rage and has multiple elemental attacks. Very weird.

I don't know what an "Origin Species" is either, but knowing Frontier, it's probably no different from a regular variant or HC monster and they just wanted a cooler sounding name to hype it up. Probably has some convoluted description about being the ancestor of all Yamas or somethin, cuz MH loves it's hyperbole and Frontier even moreso.

A Yama relative still seems like the easiest explanation, yeah, but the silhouette with hind legs and a tail is a confusing twist. The tail at least is definitely covered in flesh and so I'm assuming that's part of the body. Legs I'm not so sure. Whatever the thing is I'm sure we'll find out very soon: MHX releases in Japan just a couple days!

Thought you might get a chuckle outta this, since you seem to like JonTron going by your faves.

they are both still pretty bad in my opinion

yep you make some good stuff here 
KingJoe999 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2015  New Deviant
okay but all the dictionaries i have read in my life say they mean pretty much the same thing

good to know you re not racist though cause i have been a fan of your art for some time
DinoHunter2 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
They have the same root, but -a is kind of the "soft" slang version, usually just used between black people. It's still an awkward thing for most white people to say, but it's not a hardcore racial slur like -er.  :iconthemoreyouknowplz:

Glad to hear you enjoy my work, though! I like to think I'm as far from being a racist as a person can possibly be.
