I don't really get sick that often, not really. There are plenty of times when i feel maybe worn down, or have a head cold, or generally feel under the weather, but it's rare for me to get crawl-into-bed-and-stay-there kinda sick. So rare, actually, that when it does happen it really spooks me.
Yesterday morning i admit to not feeling all that great, but not bad enough to keep me trying to get things done. After going to the warehouse, however, something seemed to be taking a turn for the worse. By the time we got home, all i wanted to do was crawl into bed and curl up in a ball, if for no other reason that to get warm. What i did not expect was being so out of it that even when i did get up later to get something to eat, i ended up right back in bed. I felt better this morning when i finally woke, but that was just because i felt somewhat coherent. I think i'm feeling more or less ok now, as long as i don't move around too much. Can't believe i haven't drawn anything since yesterday morning, this sucks.
I've been watching a series called Wolf and Spice, and i've been quite amused. Not really sure why, but there's something quirky about it that clicks with me in an interesting way. Also, the fanservicy wolfgirl's antics are not so over the top as to seem totally blatant, but it's amusing none the less (wolf girl? looks more like a fox girl to me, but maybe that's deliberate and i'll find out later in the story). She's a harvest god, and my crack pushers tell me that the story goes in some very unexpected directions, so i'm curious. It is yet another anime that is based on a series of light novels.
Japanese fantasy worlds are a curious thing, really. There are a lot of 'standard' elements to them that get revisited and reused over and over again, from series to series. Whatever it is, it appeals to me too. I think the last 'fantasy' series that i really liked was Scrapped Princess, which wasn't that long ago, was it?
Brain is too addled to really articulate these thoughts right now. it is something i've been meaning to poke at, tho...
as for now, i'm gonna get back to work on that next comic. -_-
