I quite like paintchat, but I haven't done it in years. So yesterday I tried it out again. The tools all feel a bit different from oC and there's no 'undo' button, but you can draw with people, see what other people are drawing and how they work, and do collabs. And chat, of course.
It's weird how my paintchat stuff is always either just sketchy grey outlines or super out-of-character colourfulness haha!
Anyway, if ever you want to join me for a session, I'm either here or here. Or let me know where you usually hang out :)


Can't draw...so I went to the movies!

ARGH! I can't draw! I only have my A6 sketchbook with me and I usually work in an A4. I didn't realise that I didn't have any sketchbooks at home. And I just happened to have the A6 in my bag when I flew back over here.
It's not just that, though. Even if I did have an A4 with me, I have no ideas in my head. I sort of feel like drawing (but even the will to physically pick up a pencil is fading at the moment). How annoying. I don't know if it's more laziness or lack of confidence, but I won't get into that one. Alls I know is that I'm not producing anything of any worth and this is disconcerting at best.

All of that basically means that my work, for the time being, is all for technical purposes. Mostly exercises in mechanical aspects of what I do rather than any conceptual stuff.

In other news, I saw Inglourious Basterds today with my mum. WOWZA! Good film!! I mean, Bravo, Mr. Tarantino! I highly recommend it. Humorous and suspenseful - if a bit gory! (but that's Tarantino, isn't it?) - and just very well done. Only one complaint (something that isn't a criticism really), but I don't want to be giving away the plot. Just go see it! You won't be disappointed ; )


21 August

so....it's mah birthday :)
took me a whoppin' 2 decades, but I'm finally 20! hah


To twit...Or not to twit?

That is the question.

Actually, the question is "What's the point of Twitter?".
I don't understand.. I know virtually nothing about it other than it is the status part of Facebook. Social networking and such is important for artists and all that, but is it worth becoming a Tweeting Twitter Twit? :/

Hmm.. I have my doubts...


Year1 Final Major Project: Hodgepodge

I love how I'm like super (pseudo-)productive during my birthday month lolz

Hodgepodge: 12pages + title page

I'm proud of myself for getting so much done considering the situation I was in at the time and all that...but the story had to be severely abridged and I'm not happy with that.. I hope I'll go back and fix it later, but I know myself well. And that is unlikely.


Peepers Peeled!

The heat (32°C/90°F) really is making me lackadaisical (at least that's the excuse we'll use.. haha). Inspiration has mostly left me and I'm searching for energy, but I am working on many somethings. Keep your eyes peeled! ;)
I believe I have a wing-addiction. Surely those wings are too tiny to be of any use...


trying to get back in the groove

Drawing blanks for subject matter, but I'm trying to see if I can still operate a pencil and tablet pen... hum...

When I get back to Cardiff I want to try messing around with markers/paints (and colour!) a bit more... I just don't like getting messy (such a pansy.. lolz (actually I just don't like cleaning up afterwards....)).


Laziness Taking Hold?!

OMG! LAZINESS, GO AWAY! I think it's the heat.

I want to work on a short animation this year. I'll do some character profiles and whatnot later to keep myself creatively active (since I've just basically been lounging about lately) and post them later.

Hmm..I've been a little worried about money lately. I
really need a job! Ideally, I'd want to do commissions for cash, but I'm kinda not feeling it at the moment. Ugh!

Here's a little something from June.
