Thanks to everyone who gave input for the Creative Writing project. Just to shed some light on the whole thing, the idea was to write a paragraph that captured a specific emotion and read pretty much like a passage out of a story. I would then go through the comments, see what emotion people were getting from my paragraph and analyze the responses to get an idea of what my strengths and weaknesses are when it comes to writing.

Although the project was really quanity over quality when it came to the responses (We needed 10 responses for all three paragraphs and none of the responses could be from the same person, meaning I had to get responses from 30 different people!) but I appreciated the feedback and took all of it very seriously.

I'm not the best writer. Before this class, I hardly ever sat down and wrote my own stories. If a story idea came to me, it would usually be something I would want to put down in comic form, or if I did want to write it down, I was afraid I didn't have the talent. Taking this Creative Writing class is helping me get back into writing actual stories. I'm hoping this experience will translate over to my visual stories as well, helping me to better flesh out characters, actions, what have you.

So again, thanks to everyone who contributed!

And we're going back into regular old blog mode in 5... 4... 3... 2...

So yeah, this is what I've done over the last.... 20 days? Yeah. a little, and like the last post, the portraits are all of people in my Creative Writing class. I think they started to catch on by now, so I draw them when they're on the podium reading stories and can't focus on me. Muaha. But let's start off with the cover of my moleskine.

This is probably my favorite of the various covers I've done in the past. I'm pleased with how it turned out. I have to fix it up every so often because it fades a bit, but otherwise, it's held up pretty well.
Portraits, Nuzlocke Run and more under the cut )

I'm sorry the pictures are smaller than usual. I had to try a different scanning method that doesn't use Photoshop, as it was causing a lot of issues and crashing a lot. It was much faster and scanned with much more detail, but it's difficult for me to determine what's a good size to resize the pictures for. I'll work on this for the next post.

We're okay. Doing okay. This is good.

Microeconomics is a week away from tanking though.

I don't know what to do with it yet. We'll just have to see.

I'll post some art later this week, I swear D: Hopefully Photoshop will stop crashing on me long enough for me to edit the pictures. It's actually been freezing my computer, to the point where I have to manually restart, which has never happened before. So far it only freezes when I'm using the tablet, so hopefully simply messing with pictures won't hurt freeze anything.

Recently I've been sketching a lot of portraits of people in my various classes, mostly in my Film Analysis and Creative Writing, since those are the classes where people tend to stay still for the longest amount of time. Also, Most of them are girls. That's because there are a LOT of girls at my school. In some classes, we have about 1 boy to every 6 girls. Most of the boys sit behind me in class, so the girls are the only ones I see. I wish this was different, since I really do need practice at drawing guys but, eh, what can ya do.

Anyway, here's the drawrins:

Mouse girl, white-dreadlocked, not-a-rip-off-of-Kida girl, and a very gaily colored Link.

My first day as a High School senior is tomorrow.

As of now, I have absolutely no feelings about this.

I just kind of want to sleep.


For 12 hours.

Seriously, Punkin' keeps waking me up at odd hours. Has been for the last week. I'm happy she knows to ask to go outside, but she hasn't learned how to hold it in. FRUSTRATING.

Also my eye has been bugging me for the last 4 days. I keep scratching it and I think that's why it won't stop being so itchy, so I should probably stop. How do I ignore it, it's just so prominent. I mean, it's an itch on my FACE. My FACE.

Got a new Moleskine after finishing up the last one. It's one of the larger, soft covered ones. I like the paper in these much more than the one used for the hardback moleskines simply because it scans better. The only big problem is that it's easy to press down too hard on pencils and all and create impressions on the other side. Oh well.

I didn't feel like scanning everything that I've done in it because some pages just weren't interesting or what not.

Lots of sketches under here, some from the moleskines and others from random pieces of paper. The last 9 (except the very last one) are kind of old, some of them drawn last year.

Think I'm going to color this soon. Looks like a fun experience.

more under here. Some nudity, nothing too scarring. )

I have craved three different food items over the last 4 hours:

Whole Foods chicken potstickers
Ramen noodles
Burrito (or something from Taco Bell)

Someone drive out here and help me with these cravings.

Okay, first off, the WIP.

Worked on this during the livestream and decided the skin needed reworking since it didn't really reflect the light too well. Still experimenting with that.

Here the changes are more obvious. I'm trying to fix Zelda's eyes - I think they look better but I need to clean them up a bit.

And here are two other things that I was working on during the stream )

So back in March, I went on a week long vacation with some folks from school to Rome, Italy and Athens, Greece. Over the course of the trip, I took over 1000 photos, many of which, I feel, capture the beauty and life of the cities, the ruins, the country side and everything in between that the trip had to offer. They're all on facebook, since it would take far too long to post them all individually to livejournal. These are the "share-with-anyone" links, so you don't need a facebook account to see them.

Part 6

And here are the photos from last year's Disneyworld trip if you're interested in those.

I think photography is an abused hobby of mine. I wish I did more of it.

There are a lot of photos, so please don't feel obliged to look at all of them. I'm just posting this for anyone that's interested.

Sorry for lack of art posting. I've had friends over constantly this weekend thanks to marathons and exploding A/C units. Not much time to draw (and when I do draw, it's nothing worth posting), and the free time I do get I generally spend sleeping or interneting. Or watching movies. Netflix has a really great list of instant-watch movies!

I guess there's one thing I can show you.

Cd cover I made for a mix CD I made for my boyfriend I made. Wait, what?

I did not spell "mellon" wrong. Swear it. Inside joke and what not.

There's a really cool spider on my desk.

[livejournal.com profile] apple_rocket is over. We decided that, with my recent trend of art and all, we should do a collaboration. Of people. Having sex. This is what happened:

Updated with comments because I got distracted and didn't write any the first time :D

This post is nothing but Zelda fanart (and one not-Zelda), since now I can draw Link and Zelda, don't want to stop drawing Link and Zelda, but can't draw Link and Zelda doing normal things. That's why this is a not-safe-for-work/safer-for-work-but-still-nekkid post.

Except this. This is work safe. And the clothes didn't last long. Maybe it's because I can't draw their clothes, as is clearly demonstrated by this picture.

These would be the not safe pics [3] )

These are the safer, cuddlier pics [5] )

Okay, I love my moleskine, but I hate the way the paper scans.

I've been livestreaming for 8 hours.

We watched AMV Hell 3, Akira, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and a couple episodes of Samurai Jack.

Anyway, here's the picture as it stands now:

Finished the shield and added a rock to make the angle work. Not sure if it fixed anything. Detail shot:

Might have to fix the lighting since it's now angled away from the light, but we'll have to see.
