097: Stand By Me

Just Frank Castle things.

✪ Personal Life ✪

  • Geez… Where the fuck do I begin?
  • Everything is Lunafreya right now and you’re damn right I’m going to fangirl about FFXV in a minute.
  • February was definitely a great month. I got to meet my new nephew Jaden, hang out with Ash, Tiffa, and Mark, and finally get my hands on a Wii U!
    • Jaden – He’s such a cutie pie ♥♥♥! Why are my nephews and niece so precious? I don’t deserve them. 😥
    • Hangout – So, Ash came down from NC to visit a bunch of her ATL friends, including me, Tiffa, and Mark, and we had a blast with her. I can’t remember the last time I laughed as much as I did that day. We were just being a bunch of goofs together. LOL. All in all, it was great–great friends, great conversations, great places, great food. I can’t wait to do it again. This time we will actually put some effort into planning because Mark almost led us to our deaths. Bad Mark.
    • Wii U – This belongs in the gaming section. Still, it is probably the best Valentine’s Day gifts I ever received.
  • Mark and I found a new hobby that is guaranteed to concern the people we know. There is a shooting range right down the street from our place, and we’ve become obsessed with… well… shooting shit. My only complaint is that it’s loud as hell. And the kickback will knock your fucking teeth out if you don’t keep control. Otherwise, it’s a blast (no pun intended). The great thing is that I’m surprisingly decent at it. I mean, my eyesight is garbage so I was sure I would miss my target, but I ended up getting mostly headshots at 50 feet distance. According to Mark that is good. At least I know I’ll survive somewhat in the zombie apocalypse, right? LOL. I don’t know. He’s the military kid, so he’s been my mentor on all things gun related. Anyway, it’s fun. GREAT stress relief. That is a definite!
  • I got a chance to work remote and it was like winning the lottery for a day. LOL. I don’t even care about raises or promotions anymore. I just want to eventually get permission to work from home everyday. That is my dream job right there. And since I love the work I do my career will be 100% enjoyable for me. No more waking up at 3am, no more driving in traffic, no more spending my lunch playing taxi–none of that shit there. Just me, my music, my laptop, and my pajamas. Fuck. Yes. I want it now. ლ(╹◡╹ლ)
  • I’m ashamed of some of the things I find hysterical. For example, every time I hear/read, “Swiggity swooty, I’m coming for that booty,” I giggle like an idiot. Then the other day Mark and I were trying to decide on dinner and he googled “good food”. Dude, I was crying. Like… what was he hoping to accomplish with that vague-ass search? I’m done (╥ □ ╥)! Now I’m giggling because while watching Daredevil Mark said that since Matt is blind he probably hits on girls by saying, “Hey, girl, let me hear them titties,” and… *siiiigh* My sense of humor is in ruins. Don’t look at me.
  • I got new glasses after seven years or so, and it is so fucking weird. I didn’t know real life was this crisp.
  • Link is temporarily annoyed with me because a cat outside was following Mark and me and climbing our shoulders, and he watched all of this from the window with a pissed expression. So… Yeah… We feel like two-timing whores now. Sorry, Link. 😦
  • I don’t know what else to add in this section. I’m feeling OK. I’m working on improving certain areas of my life. I guess that is it then. Moving onwards~

 

✪ Art & Writing ✪

  • I can always tell when I’m in a good place art-wise because my art supplies will move from my desk to everywhere else. It also doesn’t help at all that every time I get a little extra cash I just add to that shit like I have all the space in the world. In my defense, I always said as a child that when I become an adult and have money I would buy all the art supplies I want. So, I’m sure the young Kerri in me is cartwheeling around in excitement. Anyway, I’m not complaining. I do need to be more organized, yes, but I’m as happy as pig in shit over here. I want to draw forever. ♥
  • Writing is now working out smoothly because I decided to put all my writing-related things in one book. Brainstorm? One book. Drabbles? One book. Charts? One book. At times I’ll think, “Yadda-yadda would be a good idea”, and then I’ll just write in my book “Yadda-yadda is a good idea”. Often times right in the middle of doing something else, like shopping. LOL. I’m pretty much inseparable from that book. It’s like my brainstorm encyclopedia, and it makes things infinitely better. If you’re a writer you have to get a brainstorm book. It’s extremely awesome. Stick it in your purse with some pen(cil)s and never worry about forgetting a good idea again. 😀
  • By the way, if you order a sketchbook online and it says “MASSIVE, HUGE” then believe it… because I ordered one thinking, “please no sketchbook is too big for me” and this one is ridiculous. In terms of length  and width it’s not bad. Maybe 11 x 12-ish. But it has like 600 pages, its the size of an encyclopedia, and there is no way I’m carrying that almost 20 lb. tome of a sketchbook outside of this place. So. Yeah. I have so many pages that at this point I’m just sketching any random shit that comes to mind. LOL

✪ Anime & Manga ✪

  • It only took me an eternity, but I finally managed to watch all of Fushigi Yuugi including that horrible sequel. Yay! At first I was disappointed that Miaka was gravitating towards Tamahome instead of Hotohori, but eventually I stopped fighting it and accepted the obvious reality that they are one of the most adorable couples ever created. I also wanted nothing but the best for Yui too because even though she was so pigheaded at times she was never a bad person. Ah… I love it. I’ll always have a soft spot for shoujo anything. They make me feel so warm and fluffy inside. (。´ ‿`♡)
  • Completely in love with Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable.
  • Of course I caught the FFXV: Brotherhood anime. It’s decent so far. I just wonder how long it’s going to take to release all of the episodes. ARGH IMPATIENCE.
  • I am completely in love with Hunter x Hunter. I’m so glad that I finally finished it. Now I feel kinda hollow because I was immersed in this world for weeks and now it’s just… done. I hate when that happens. LOL. I’m already looking into collecting the mangas so maybe that will help.
  • New Berserk anime! *backflips through a wall* Yaaas, I need more! I’m already hyped as shit because they finally made it to Elfheim, so… yeah. Let’s get this series done in my lifetime please. >_<
  • The new Sailor Moon Crystal looks so much better. Also, Michiru! My queen!
  • Broke down and purchased the Oyasumi Punpun and Gunslinger Girl omnibuses. Totally worth it. Now my heart can break all over again. Yay!
  • What the hell is even Sekkou Boys? (╥ □ ╥)
  • I guess Turn-A-Gundam is no longer in copyright jail because they’re actually selling the DVDs in stores now. I damn near screamed when I saw the first part of the set at MovieStop. Silly gundam moustache and all, I absolutely love this series. Loran is definitely my favorite Gundam pilot of all times. He is so adorable. I can’t stand it. Also, Yoko Kanno doing the music is just… *deep breath*… Get away from me if you hate this series. I don’t need that negativity in my life.
  • Geez, what else? The Lost Village is creepy as fuck and I have no idea what is going on. Finished Ace of Diamond and I really want Chris Yuu’s eyebrows. Slam Dunk is my shit now. Sakamoto is funny as hell. My Hero Academia is so nice! Ah, so much anime to talk about. Maybe another time.

I know I’m forgetting something but it’s been a few months. I’m trying. -_-

✪ Video Games ✪

  • Ah, yes. The Wii U. It kind of came to me unexpectedly. Sure, I was planning to get it eventually, but one day Mark was just like “surprise,” and then I had a Wii U. He already got me Hyrule Warriors before I got it, so I had that to play (ADDICTIVE). It came with Mario Kart 8 (FUN). The moment Twilight Princess came out I got that (GLORIOUS). Eventually, I did get Xenoblade Chronicles, even after the whole Amazon crap I had to deal with to get it (LONG STORY BUT WHATEVER THIS GAME IS RPG ROYALTY), and that was well worth all the headache. I have zero complaints. I love it. The gamepad is ridiculously nifty and feels more like another handheld console at times. I don’t know what else to say. I’m completely in love with it. I am beyond fortunate. Thank you, life, for not always shitting on me! \(^O^)/
  • GET READY FOR SOME FFXV FANGIRLING.
  • First of all, I watched that FFXV Uncovered video from start to finish, and even though it was cheesy at times I was hyped as fuck. I’ve accepted my badge as a Square-Enix bitch ages ago. I can’t help it anymore. Needless to say, they are going above and beyond with this one. And they better. They’ve been working on this game for over a decade now. I was still in high school when they announced it, and back then it was FF Versus XIII or whatever. The wait is finally over, guys. I can’t believe it. Come September 30th FFXV will actually be here! Well… it might come a little later for me. I preordered the deluxe edition (the ultimate edition practically vanished) with overnight shipping, so if I’m lucky I’ll get on the first of October. If not, then it will probably show up the following Monday. Tuesday the absolute latest before I lose my shit. LOL. Either way, I’m ecstatic. I love the idea of an anime, a movie, another demo, and even all the other ridiculous things like an actual car that no one can buy. I’m indifferent to the mobile game, but I’ll try it out once I get a phone that doesn’t give me an insufficient storage warning every time I try to download something. I mean… Fuck. I don’t know what else to say. The moment I heard Florence and the Machine singing her version of “Stand By Me” (Yes!) FOR this game my eyes started to water. I couldn’t help it. It’s like someone just took all of my favorite things, put them in a box, dumped it in front of me, and said, “Enjoy it in six months, bitch”. It’s like… that feeling you get as a kid when someone told you that you were going to Disneyworld. When I realize this thing I’ve been waiting over ten years to experience is only months away I just want to celebrate, regardless of the possibility that it might be straight up dick. I don’t even know what I’m saying. I’m just excited and sappy and relieved and hopeful. That’s about it. I can’t wait!!!  ʘ‿ʘ
  • Oh, and you can bet your ass that I played that demo. The gameplay felt a lot like Kingdom Hearts tbh. Which is not a complaint at all. It’s so enjoyable that I’m already thinking of playing it again. Plus Carbuncle and bb Noctis are so adorable! I want an esper/eidolon/GF/summon/etc. to talk to me via text messages. 😮 And of course I’m so uncreative that when I was asked to name Carbuncle I just named him Carbuncle. LOL. I don’t start giving people and things dumb names until the second playthrough at least. Dems the rules.
  • Can I talk about Sakaguchi showing up to the conference? I miss him. ;_;
  • New updates for Nier Automata too! Yes, I need moar!
  • Finally tackling that Hearts of Stone DLC for The Witcher 3. I’m loving it. I never get tired of Geralt. There could be an entire DLC with him watching paint dry and I’ll probably write a review saying, “A work of art. Fantastic gameplay. 10/10.”
  • I can’t sign on Steam anymore because the instant I login this person keeps IMing me to talk about Sailor Moon and its connection to the occult and I don’t know how to say “go away” without hurting his/her feelings. Why did I end up in this situation? Why is it the more antisocial I become, the more people keep talking me? Why? Why?

✪ Books ✪

  • Do comic books count? Because I’ve been reading through a lot of omnibuses lately, mostly Daredevil.
  • I did get the first eight books of The Wheel of Time series for like $10 and was set on reading it… but then I got distracted… and then Mark took that honor for me. LOL. He got through three books in like a week, so I have to hear nonstop about how awesome it is while simultaneously loathing myself for not getting past the second chapter of the first book. I just need one good week to focus 100% on my hobbies. (◞‸◟;)

✪ Music ✪

  • The Legend of Legacy OST is everything. Pianoschlacht Live is also pretty important to me. Bless Masashi Hamauzu. Kinda OT, but I found out recently that Masashi Hamauzu got his daughter to sing the vocals in “The Vestige” from the FFXIII OST. I just had to mention that because it is really neat and adorable at the same time.
  • BEYONCE DID IT AGAIN! >:U
  • My music life has been mostly Pandora. I really need to do something about my stations because I swear I have like twenty of them. It’s not really my fault though. How do you put instrumentals, trip hop, classic rock, alternative rock, hip hop, r&b, and several other genres in one station? Then there are some artists/bands that need their own station because I have a lot of moments where I only want to hear their music or music that sounds similar to theirs. I did put my movie, game, and anime soundtrack stations into one station called “writing & drawing*, but even now I’m thinking of breaking them into separate stations again because video game music is not like movie music, you know? *sigh* I’m hopeless.

✪ TV & Movies ✪

  • THIS NEW SEASON OF GAME OF THRONES IS REALLY GOOD SO FAR. WOW.
  • I don’t think I discussed The Force Awakens yet. I loved it! My biggest complaint is that there was not enough Captain Phasma, but I heard she was supposed to get more screen time in later episodes. GOOD. You can’t hire fierce queen Gwendoline Christie aka Brienne of Tarth to play a stormtrooper and not make her kick ass. Not allowed, JJ Abrams. e_e
  • Season two of Daredevil… Wow. Just wow. I loved every second of it. Sure, it has its flaws, but none were so troubling that I couldn’t enjoy it. Frank/The Punisher is amazing. Elektra is amazing. I still love Matt/Daredevil, Karen, and Foggy. I love that some of the characters from season one came back. It’s just so good. I can’t wait for Luke Cage and Iron First and The Defenders!
  • I think I mentioned watching The Sopranos before. That is all done, so now I just have to start The Wire. I know it is considered quite possibly the best show ever made, but every time I get the chance to watch it I end up falling asleep. Not because it’s boring but because I’m almost always tired. Then I spend my weekends playing games or watching weeb shit, so… yeah. It’s at the top of my watchlist. Finish The Wire before 2017 or kick myself in the chest. >_<
  • Spotlight is such a good movie, but it is so fucked up. So, so, so, so fucked up. It is disgusting how many suspected pedophiles are amongst priests alone. When you think about the population as a whole… It’s like this whole shit with Jared. It makes me legit irate. I’m just going to stop because this is going to turn into a long rant. I already feel it. Anyway, Spotlight it is wonderfully done in terms of acting and production, but the subject matter is definitely unsettling. There is my review.
  • The same kind of goes for Room. It is such a good movie, but the subject matter is saddening. I really love characters like Brie Larson’s “Ma” because she is the epitome of what a hero(ine) is. I cannot imagine the amount of courage and strength it takes to endure a situation like that, and still keep your child completely oblivious to how screwed up things actually are. It is definitely a tearjerker. I highly recommend it.
  • Saw Deadpool. Funny as hell, as expected. Not a perfect movie, but it is the perfect Deadpool movie. That is all that matters, right?
  • Saw Batman v Superman… and I don’t even know what to say. Outside of Ben Affleck playing a good Batman and Gal Gadot slaying as Wonder Woman the movie was balls. It was just plot holes galore, Jesse Eisenberg doing who knows what drug to play Lex Luthor (or supposedly Lex Luthor Jr. which is even dumber), disappointing character development, flop villains all around… I don’t even know. And they didn’t even have the decency to reward the audience for sitting through that with some after credits scenes. The disrespect. LOL. I mean, it wasn’t the worst movie ever made. It was just tolerable at best.

✪ Whatever Else/Closing ✪

I have so much to cover that I just kinda typed without worrying about typos or curbing my potty mouth… fingers. Anyway, sorry about all of that. I think it’s been like five months since my last entry. D:

Take care, ya’ll, especially with the ridiculous amount of pollen out there these days. If you’re going through the whole itchy eyes, stuffy nose, coughing mess I’m there with you. Be strong, sistrens and brethrens.

Sending everyone good vibrations. (っ- ‸ -)っ ~♥

 

Art Dump #003

I managed to get my scanner working! It took a lot of headaches with uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, but at last my scanner isn’t a cat bed anymore. Anyhoo, I bring drawings… but not many. I have been feeling more inspired this week since I’m getting back into writing, so maybe I’ll bring better things next time. Well, I’m just going to go ahead and add my pointless commentaries.

**Sidenote: All of these images are automatically hyperlinked by WP to open to its full size (most of these are about 2000×3000 I believe). Thanks WP! :U

IMG_0001

Just Elda being a dick. LOL

IMG_0002

This one took more time than usual. I am making greater efforts to put details into drawings instead of just slapping on some flat, boring clothes and moving along. It’s tough though. But tough is good. Tough is a challenge, and the more challenges I meet the better I will become. I know I’ll never reach, like, Leonardo Da Vinci levels, but knowing that I gravitate more towards character designs I do want to become as good as that as I can get. Yadda, yadda, here is Elda posing with one of her staffs. I’m working on making her staffs operate like Sun Wukong’s Ruyi Jingu Bang (sp?) where it can extend, shrink, and do all types of nifty things. I’ll probably draw that out tonight.

IMG_0003

I’m doing another NieR replay, and I came across that scene where Weiss makes fun of Kaine for always wearing lingerie in public, and then suggests that the lingerie she plans to wear to the King of Facade and Fyra’s wedding should have “spring colors”. So, I tried to put everyone in the type of wedding attire they would wear (LOL). I’m kind of snickering at Emil because I tend to go over the top when it comes to his fascination with adorable, girly things. Then there is Nier’s inability to ever wear a shirt and Weiss wearing a tie. Yeah… it looks about right to me. XD

IMG_0004

Another challenge: new poses. It took time drawing young Odin in a seated position, but it turned out decent compared to the rough sketch I did in the beginning. Eh… it’ll just have to do. *shrug*

IMG_0005

Yes, the ink is extremely light, but it is not the scanner’s fault. Whenever I do rough and quick sketches it seems like my pencil barely touches the paper, so… magnifying this one will help probably. All of that aside, I am still working out the process of Odin’s transmogrification into a dragon. I am set on him being consumed by fire, but how that turns into him being a dragon is still a working process. I’m also working on Elda’s process of becoming a dragon rider/dragoon. For now it’s just going to be like riding a horse because I’m entirely stumped. D:

 

I wish I was able to draw things like buildings and landscapes because I have so many ideas that I want to sketch out. Maybe I should just do it regardless of how shitty I think it will look, you know? I really have to get over this idea that every drawing needs to be done quickly. If I got over that then I could keep returning to the same drawing over and over until it looked infinitely better than the type of things I draw in a 20-40 minute span.

*sigh* Okay then. I’m going to tackle writing and drawing some more. Next time I might post an excerpt from the story if I feel confident enough with my progress to do that. I should also consider uploading some of these drawings to my website and deviant art whenever I find the motivation to. Blah…

Alright. That’s it for today. >_<

Art Dump #002

Not much to share today.

20150217_043037

I love drawing with permanent tools like gel pens. It’s kind of adventurous to go in knowing that if you make a mistake you’re either screwed or you’re forced to get creative with it. Anyway, ARMLESS ZERO. Zero is the best. ~_~

20150217_043107

I started working on this comic last year and then I just sort of stopped. Glad I saved it though instead of throwing it away like everything else.

20150217_043450

Just some hands and a face.

20150217_043203

Me and some flowers.

20150217_043225

Mark got me acrylic paint a while ago, and this is the first time I really got to use it. I just painted a cherry for the hell of it because why not?

20150217_043341

Quick sketch of Lorelei (or Odin’s mother in TMS).

If all goes well my next entry about my boring personal updates will be drawn instead of written. That is what I am working on in between sketches and doodles of random objects.

Oh! I found an artbook that I saved from the sixth grade. It is so horrendous. Like, I had this comic where Sailor Moon runs into Sephiroth, and it is the most random crossover ever. I was cracking up because back then I actually thought a villain like Sephiroth could be turned into this upbeat, friendly guy by spending a few hours talking to someone like Usagi. *sigh* I know better now. That book will never see the light of day if I can help it. And those Fatal Fury comics I did. Uggggh, I’m ashamed. Bye. (LMAO)

*Shulk voice* I’M REALLY FEELING IT.

Most of these drawings are old as balls, but at least I got around to uploading them… via camera no less. In my defense I’m really protective of my sketchbooks, so tearing pages out is a huge no for me. Soooo, that being said, please forgive the shitty quality. Also, get used to it since my patience with my current scanner is at 0% at this point. You get what you pay for, right? Word of advice: if a scanner is cheap it is probably for a reason. LOL. Okay, let’s move on with everything~

20150122_193940

This post is brought to you by Crayola, Hello Kitty, and Korean stationery supplies. Thanks for taking all my money~

20150122_193955

This is my art briefcase by the way. No, I am not 10. It’s just really cute. I’m a sucker for cute things. Leave me alone.

 

20150122_193418

Mark suggested I draw a self-portrait, and this is what happened. I probably don’t take things as seriously as I should as an artist. I know if I ever went to art school my teacher would just ban me from the class because I’ll just draw smiley faces on inappropriate things… like nude art. I actually do that in my sketchbooks. I’m not posting them though. I have some shame. D:

20150122_193439

Brace yourself for way more “The Millennium Sorceress (herein TMS)” than you ever wanted to see in one lifetime. Should I do the whole description thing? Eh… Why not. Top left corner, three doodles of Elda. Top right, Selene and Silas. Below them, Odin mid-transmogrification and then a less intimidating Odin. Bottom left, Aisne and Lorelei. Next to them, Bleiddian “Wolf” Wilder and his fellow assassin Kismette Ozatt. For those who endured my ever-changing “Mythos” stories in the past, Kismette is Giga’s mother, Wolf is Odin’s father, Lorelei is Odin’s mother, and Selene is the mother of Sebastian and Silvain. So, there is that. Think of this part of the story I am working on as a prequel to the “Mythos” I was working on in the past. ^^;;

20150122_193452

I got bored and tried to design my own superhero. She is “The Phantasm”, a ghost sent back to Earth to exact justice. Lame, I know. D:

20150122_193503

Never get tired of drawing Elda. She’s as fun to draw as Deedlit and Pirotess once were, so it makes sense to me. I’m also the type of nerd who obsesses over their own OCs so… there is that too. LOL

20150122_193543

*violin obsession intensifies* Let’s take it to the next level and have a character who is just a walking violin. Every time she talks it just sounds like a beautiful song that no one understands but appreciates. 😀

20150122_193605

I love how Elda started off as this really timid character and eventually morphed into the biggest dick in TMS. LOL. I kind of told myself that if I was a century old sorceress and had 900 years to go I would stop giving a shit. I’d just indulge in every pleasure imaginable and then burn anyone who tries to lecture me about the errors in my ways… which is pretty much what Elda does. She’s really not a bad person, just really selfish. Please don’t hate her. *protects Elda at all costs*

20150122_193623

That top photo is Elda’s resting face (aka “the bitchface”). She always looks like she’s about to beat motherfuckers up. It’s not even a game. XDD

20150122_193633

I’m not even set on making TMS into an RPG (though RPG Maker VX is tempting me), but I made some staffs. My writing is terrible so I’ll write it out here: (#1) The Nameless Grace, (#2) Spriggan Sigil, (#3) Vespertine, (#4) Spearhead, (#5) Pythia. I drew tons more but… eh. I’ll upload them another time.

20150122_193649

Giga suffers from serious Brock (Pokemon) syndrome until she gets pissed. Then she gives the signature death stare that goofy anime characters like to give when something is serious business. LOL. I am basing her entire personality on my cat Link. He is generally relaxed and playful (to the point of being destructive at times -.-) until food comes into the picture. That’s when he becomes a lvl. 99 douchelord. He’ll also give the death stare if you interrupt his sleeping or eating so… Giga is essentially a big lady cat if the cat ears did not give that away already.

20150122_193702

This is the Minthean elder’s shrine. Every forested domain as an elder, and she is pretty much an assistant to the all-goddess that all dryads worship. I don’t want to say elders are like queens because no one relies on them to set laws. The forest goddesses already tell the forested domains what to do via whispers from trees, flowers, grass, etc. that only dryads can hear. So, really, the elder is just a babysitter who has to tell wayward dryads like Elda: “Didn’t the all-goddess tell you to not do the thing? Why are you doing the thing?!” That is Elder Ozara (of Minthe) anyway. When it comes to the other six forested domains (Seligren, Xhulti, Yephrine, Bell Thevard, Ulveld, and Aalthea) the elders vary from being really strict to being way too lax. I have some drawings of them as well as their respective shrines, but I’m lazy. Another time perhaps. >_<

20150122_193715

Dude, it must have sucked for Zero to grow a fricking flower from her eye. On top of that a flower that is pretty much evil. So, yeah, that was the inspiration for this–Zero losing her shit because flowers are growing from her eyeballs. All of that aside, Taro Yoko is a major inspiration to me. He comes up with the most bizarre yet heartbreaking and amazing stories. I want to be like him someday. ;_;

20150122_193736

Listening to “Atom Dance” from Bjork’s new album made me think about how neat it is to be composed of the same microscopic building blocks (aka atoms) as planets, stars, and all of that stuff. I had this borderline pothead philosophy that everyone is controlling their own universe without even realizing it, and then I drew it literally. I promise this is not a tired lady hula hooping the solar system, as hilarious and terrifying as that would be.

20150122_193800

This is the front of my sketchbook. Use metallic colored pencils on your sketchbooks, man. It looks great. As for that sticker I don’t even know who or what “Empire” is. All I know is that Mark was like: “Hey, someone gave me this. You want it?” and then I was like: “Please! My story takes place in an empire! It’s perfect!” So, there it is. My baby~

20150122_193807

Gold looks *nice* on black surfaces. Holy shit. I like Odin’s cover more than Elda’s cover because IRL it looks so vibrant. Like, Elda’s cover won’t even pop unless it’s under bright light, but Odin’s cover is always shiny. I like gold. Gold and black everything from this moment on. >_<

20150122_193832

This wasn’t even in my sketchbook. I just didn’t want to work with my scanner, as I mentioned before. Anyway, nothing new. Just Elda wearing something fancy and looking pissed off while doing so.

*phew*

Alright, that is everything I am sharing today. I do more writing than drawing these days, but I’ll post whatever I can when I can. Actually, it is my goal to one day turn this blog into 80% drawings and 20% text posts. Even if I have to draw about the crap going on in my life and take a picture it would be great practice, you know? I have so much practicing to do. I think I’ll pick up some scrapbook backgrounds from Jo-Ann’s so the pictures I take will have fancy borders around them. Yeah, let’s do that!

Okay. That’s all.

Thanks for enduring this messy art dump. ‘Til next time! ♥

TIAC3DP: Part 4

This one was pretty easy to draw, so it didn’t take much time.

The recording for this is a little confusing. I know. I was about to start on my ‘air’ drawing, but I got bored and started doodling a mascot. When the mascot got boring, I started drawing Mark. So, this is Mark.

Recording of drawing here.

I regret starting off with that dark gray color. This would have looked so much better if it was nothing but blues and greens. Bah. No point in would-haves and should-haves, right? I will work on fire, earth, and air really soon! And use the right colors! 😀

Dany fanart! Whoo! I don’t know why it took me so long to make one. I finally got around to signing up for the Colors gallery, so you can actually watch me draw her over here.

…That’s all I have for now. D:

This Is A Colors! 3D Post: Part 1

In the same fashion as my ACNL posts, I will begin posting my drawings from Colors! 3D from time to time with photos + comments.

Since I consider my deviantart page as my digital gallery, I really don’t want to upload my little 3Ds doodles there. Mind you, I am only posting my Colors!3D doodles in here–not pencil and paper doodles. Ever since I watched a video in the app of someone drawing the most beautiful picture I have ever seen in my life with nothing but the Colors! 3D app, I told myself that I can do great things with it if I practice.

So, consider this practice.

It will be mostly Mythos related art since I’m about 100 pages into the story and really obsessed with it. Yes, I am obsessed with my own story. It’s sad. I know. But it does produce art…so it’s a win-win. LOL. Anyway, just two for today. I will add more later.

I love drawing Elda so much. Probably because I combined a lot of my favorite heroines–both physically and emotionally–into this one character. So, it’s only natural. *pets creepily* Anyway, first picture of my ongoing practicing mission.

Yo. I’m getting tired of people telling me that Odin has a long nose like it’s not okay. HIS NOSE IS SUPPOSED TO BE LONG. >:U

That’s it for today. I really have to find a way to upload the drawing recordings online. The app actually records every stroke I made and makes a video out of it. It’s really neat! Once I figure that out, I’ll add videos as well.

Attempt number one at shading with PTS…using a mouse. Really, it was pretty fun. I’d like to apply it to an actual picture though. It has crossed my mind that the Samsung Galaxy won’t have PTS on it which sucks. *sigh* Choices, choices…
