Throughout history, 72 percent of all Chupacabra sightings have been on Mondays. Roughly 47.7 percent of those have been on or around full moons. In 1964, Iowa farmer Jed Jenkins reportedly shot and killed a chupacabra on his property.

I was up til 2:00 am last night finishing up my Voltron sketch cards; a project through 5Finity Production that I was really excited to get involved in. thank you Eric Merced.
I was a huge Voltron fan as a kid and watched it daily and had a ton of Voltron toys, so this was exciting for me. Anyways, I did 36 total, though I accidentally destroyed one.

Preludes to full scale alien invasions usually take place gradually, sometimes years before the actual event. In most instances, those from beyond prefer (for a time) to disguise themselves, and walk among us to study us. Many move undetected.
Others however, are more easily recognized.

For anyone who cares about artistic process, you may find this post helpful. I rarely do anything of artistic merit without thumbnailing it to death first. In this case, here's some thumbnails for a scene in my book.
Thumbnails are fun in that you force yourself to reduce your idea down to a nearly stamp sized chicken scratch. Something about this forces me to think loosely and somtimes find myself liking the thumbanail so much that I end up scanning it, sizing it, printing it, and transferring it to large paper, simply because redrawing it would lack the energy and potency the thumbnail had.
Thumbnails are also helpful in plotting out scenes in your book, and helps you to get a bird's eye view on story flow and how everything is working as a cohesive whole.
