    • RIP my teeth

      I had two wisdom teeth removed on Friday and haven't been able to do much since then. The painkillers also make me really sleepy. But I feel like I was cheated out of a hilarious post wisdom teeth removal experience because they don't do anything other than numb you for it here.


      I got to see the teeth after though which was kind of cool, they were a lot bigger than I expected!

      So long story short I got a new laptop before New Years, which is an upgrade to what I had in every way. For one, I can actually open .docx files now. I know, it's pretty cool. Except I was wrong about it being better in every way.


      My monitor displays colors slightly off, not so much that things look weird for me, but to the point where digital art I make in color looks different for me compared to other computers (phones etc). Especially saturation and contrast. Changing the monitor display settings has no effect, but I haven't given up on finding a solution.


      It's a bit of an inconvenience for a digital artist. I don't want to start any time consuming paintings in color because they won't look right for anyone except myself. And now I would actually be able to work with fairly large canvases for painting.


      I'm also getting a little bored of painting in black and white :') Maybe I'll have a better understanding of contrast and lighting for when I can do colors again. Gotta try to find the positives haha

    • Getting there

      Me and my best friend who lives on a whole different continent (because life is unfair) have been developing an online comic idea for some time. And it's slow progress because real life things like work and school come first, and as it turns out there's a lot of planning and research and details to work out.


      It's very cool to start turning our ideas into sketches and concepts like this:

      Things will change and be reworked many times but it's getting there! It feels more like a thing we'll actually make and put out into the world for people to see.

      Oh my god school has been keeping me busy. I'm only on campus twice a week now but most of my time goes to keeping up with assignments or drawing. I have course work in html, css, java, and python so this year so far has been a lot of sitting in front of a computer and way more coffee..

      I never got around to scanning from my sketchbooks this summer like I had wanted to, but there's still time for that.

      Though it feels like there's not time for much anymore. I'm sorting things out for a job I'll be starting in a few weeks, and keeping up with school work. So I'll have school-work and work-work soon enough.

      Any free time I have mostly goes towards digital painting practice, reading, or sleeping. I'm working towards relying less on references, and creating my own environments. Which is hard :( also always the constant struggle with color palettes, where I tend to go for too many different colors. Need more practice...

      It's getting quite cold outside here already, hope everyone's October is starting out well!

      Good, the site updated when I forgot to come here for a few weeks now I can see the true low res glory of my profile picture.

      Sometimes I think I'm going to do X and X and X and a lot of the time I end up not doing it because I forget, nobody tells me to, or I just lose interest. That's why I have an entire desktop folder for sai files with wips and sketches. I still plan on sitting down one day to scan a whole bunch of sketchbook pages.

      But anyway, I bought this sign today that says "The Crab IS IN" and there's a picture of a crab and it makes no sense and it is the best.

      Two long, wonderful weeks are coming to an end soon. So much walking, so much sightseeing (so much ice cream). I'm just happy I got to hang out with my best friend again.

      Gonna go check out a medieval castle tomorrow. I hope June is treating everyone well!

      Very slow progress art wise, but I've been cleaning almost non stop in preparation for when my best friend comes over in about two weeks. Which is super exciting because I haven't seen her in a year, so I'm really looking forward to hanging out in person again :)

      It's weird how now that I have more free time, I'm not creating more art than when I had school responsibilities. There's still lots of silly sketchbook things. Especially since I decided it would be a good idea to start watching X Files. It's been good so far, I like it, but as far as background noise it doesn't really work because I end up just watching the show haha.

      Maybe this is just my brain taking a short vacation and I will have more motivation soon.
