unij: YOU BET KID (Kittens are manly)
Oh man I fail something fierce at keeping this updated. Curse you Plurk, you just make pointless updates so easy!

I've pretty much stopped updating my InsaneJournal, and switched to putting my art stuff on my Tumblr. So far it's primarily my artdump space, and I haven't gotten too sucked in to the black hole of .gifs and artlogs others put up... but that may just be a matter of time.

Recovering from a brief run-in with my mortal enemy, The Common Cold. He put me in a headlock that left me out of it for a couple days, but I think I'm wearing him down. Nothing but mucous, for the last few days.

My class is going great, I really love it, though my teachers have no idea how to make a decent Powerpoint, it's a little bit painful. ALL THE OVERUSED TRANSITIONS. Ecch. Since it's an all-level class, there's some extreme basics that are getting explained and make the lectures painfully long, but in the end it's good information to have about topics I want to know about, so I can suck it up.

Annnnd that's my life in a nutshell right now. Runny nose aside, I'm pretty okay with it.

Day 06: Digimon -Favorite Male Character?

I really like Joe. I dunno why, he was probably the least focused on during Adventure and showed up in, seriously I think three episodes for 02. But there's something so endearing about the kid trying so hard to be taken seriously and wants so badly to help everyone out, no matter how rarely he's taken seriously or how bad he gets trounced in the process. ...Dear god I think I just found the origin of my love for the Rookies. WOW. Cody and Henry in 02 and Tamers were also great characters. I guess I just have a thing for the serious-minded guys that try to act as the more logic-based teammate.

I had a pretty bleh day in class. For no particular reason other than I really need to start working on this self portrait project. And I hate self portraits. They feel tacky, overdone in every class I've done and also narcissistic. But I get to take pictures of myself, and then make two more pieces out of that. And it just doesn't inspire me in the slightest. Thinking about it put me in a really lousy mood.

Then I came back to my room and saw the new One Piece spoilers and my day got infinitely better

I am easily distracted I guess. In both good and bad ways =\

Man all last week I didn't have any inspiration for drawing stuff and then a bunch of memes happened in XI and I'm like "MAN NOW I HAVE DRAWING INSPIRATION" and then my class is like "PS DRAW SOME STUFF FOR YOUR ESSAY ON TOP OF ALL THIS OTHER WORK" and I'm like "CRUD SUDDENLY I HAVE LESS TIME TO DO THINGS I WANT"

Also

Comment and I will tell you:

1. Something random about you.
2. Which color you remind me of.
3. My first memory of you.
4. What animal you remind me of.
5. Ask you something I've always wondered about you.
6. My favorite thing about you.
7. My least favorite thing about you.
8. Challenge you to post this on your journal.

Back home, comfortable, glad to pet my dog, considering the pile of tags I suddenly have out of nowhere.

But! I left my iPod on the airport shuttle D= I called them and they said they'll hang onto it until I get back on the 27th, but auuuuugh so long without my pod it will be such a struggle I am not kidding.

I really wish I'd tried to bring my tablet back with me so I could get more iconwork done but there was just no room in the suitcase D=

So, when I was finishing my project, adding the last of the inking and putting the words in, I kept thinking, "Oh man, what was I thinking, this is so dumb, why did I like this ending, everyone will think the story is so poorly constructed and this character is so one dimensional, this panel is the worst drawn panel in the history of comics oh my god I am such a bad artist."

Then I put up the twenty-six pages of hell and everyone was like "oh my god this is awesome you put so much work into it this story is interesting I wish I had more time than class gave us to look it over"

and I felt better.



In other news I now have to get active in XI again, right in time for app period too, I'm so out of practice with actually initiating stuff and I need more CR aaa

Also why is it that of all the things that I could draw now that I have time to focus on other things, I decide to do gendershuffled Franky and Spin. DERP.

I was chattin' with the ever-so-awesome [livejournal.com profile] asbestoslegs  today and finally got the balls together to try and draw some stuff purely through tablet. Considering it's my first time actually completing something, to my memory, they came out decent enough, if not sketchy.

Also I updated my DeviantArt for the first time in over a year ._. yaaay
XI shenanigans =d (2 pics) )

EDIT: One more =P )
unij: YOU BET KID (I Did It My Way)
After having no clue for the first two and a half classes what to do with the project, or how to work Sinatra's products to fit into something that would be fun for me and also not one hundred percent unoriginal, I finally got struck by inspiration last night and it is so relieving.

Basic outline, 40s setting, but with magic. An older charmer tries to show a fast-living illusion-caster how to actually enjoy the craft, rather than just using it as a tool. Good thing I know so much about the 40s culture 8|;;

Doing character sketches now. It would be awesome if I followed through and didn't chicken out of comic format, switching back to short story. The idea of it is a very visual, anyway, and wouldn't translate well, so HEY SARAH DON'T SCREW UP
unij: YOU BET KID (i like chocolate milk)
I love my family they send me things that I desire

Like macadamia nut chocolates

No seriously I have my tablet now and though I can't remember where at home the right discs are for downloading it to work at its full potential, it does work at part of its potential and now I can use my computer to DRAW THINGS 8D probably in paint because I'm still not sure about how to get a copy of Photoshop workin' on here and run on sentences are fun

So! Today is dubbed productive.

First off, more class. It took a while to find the right room, namely since it was on the exact opposite side of campus from the apartment... at least for now. See, on Thursday the class is split in two. Half does the Drawing class, and the other half does Acting. After four weeks, they switch.

I'm in Drawing first, and guess what we get on day one? NUDE MODEL! |D I was surprised by how unbothered I was, but the fact that she was female likely assisted with that. It was weird for me to realize that, after drawing for years and generally being considered good at it, this was my first official art class of any sort. And I don't think I did too bad! Yay me.

Made another stop by the mall today. It was mostly for the sake of scoping out clothing to put together for my Halloween costume, as an Airboarder from Rhythm Heaven. (No one will recognize me in the slightest, which keeps up with tradition =Db)  It is ridiculously hard to find blue pants that are not jeans at the mall. Or, really, any pants that aren't jeans. I eventually found all the pieces I need though, but held off on purchasing until Monday; there's a sale starting at the fabric store I got a coupon for.

I really hope I can find a way to draw and scan myself some decent icons before the 14th...

It is raining in Washington. I am prepared to never see the sun again.
