      So I am clearly the most proficient at coming up with names for my art files. ;P Here's a cool thing I drew the other day!

      Decided to experiment with digital painting and it was hard. Here's Blake. As usual. I love her.

      YEP. I am really liking the new site design! It'll be a bittersweet goodbye to the old stuff (well, sort of) but I can adapt. With change. All in all I'm liking it! Haven't seen anything I don't like yet.

      What about you guys?

    • "Real Art"

      I want to talk about something that's been bugging me for a few years now.

      Many years ago, I joined a community on RT and met a bunch of great people in there. I won't name the community because I don't want them getting hate. I befriended most of them, while the others became senpais. But, that's besides the point now. What I wanted to get at was something a couple friends at the time had told me.

      We were in a call, talking about art. One of the guys showed off his new Master Chief drawing (which was really good), this was not much long after I'd drawn and posted this drawing:

      0a93bade8ab09fc87283a7700fc6ecf9-d5ei7sz

      And at the time, I was very proud of the drawing. I'd drawn it with nothing but a mouse in Paint.NET. Of course, it's no astonishing drawing, but people said it was good, and I thought so too.

      I recall trying to engage in conversation with these guys, when they were talking about different art supplies and which kinds they should get, which size eraser they should buy, etc etc. And they brushed me off, saying they did "real art".

      Ouch. That hurt. But you know, I didn't let it get me down. I continued in art. However, that's not the same for some people. For others, it could stop them from continuing in art completely.

      I just wanted to let everyone out there know, whether professional, amateur, beginner, or experienced artist, that your art is real, and that no matter what anyone else says, you will get better.

      Even today I'm dumbfounded when I get comments like these:

      XDh7tlq.png7t8hriO.pngNNMO5H2.pngR59f4kX.pngV5PrqYF.png

      It's hard to be an artist these days, and you may get down from people's comments, or that you'll feel like you're not adequate enough, that you're not as good as such and such. Don't think about those things too much. Strive to be the best artist you can be. I believe in you! smiley12.gifsmiley13.gif

      As one last thing, I just want to compare that old Carolina draw with something I drew today. smiley0.gif

    • CUBA!

      4 years ago

      PinkAura Artist in training

      It's been a month since I've been on my favourite trip ever... of all time. I still haven't made a proper journal about it, so here's a semi-proper journal.

      5plHymj.jpg
      Despite arriving to the airport late (forgot my sax at home, and realized it once we were half way there) I was still able to get in on a big games of Cards Against Humanity with a bunch of my friends. It was a great way to kill the time because of our delayed flight. A great play we had that day: "What's there a lot of in Heaven?" "Coat Hanger abortions." I feel bad for the desk ladies we were playing loudly next to.

      mU2BS0v.jpg
      We arrived in Varadero, Cuba late at night, and by the time we made it through their scary customs and to baggage check, it was midnight. This didn't change the fact that most of us still had large amounts of energy. We got off the plane and got to walk to the tarmac into the airport so of course all our reactions were still "IT'S WARM HERE", seeing as just 5 or so hours earlier it had been -36 degrees celsius outside. Due to the super huge long line for monetary exchange, we didn't end up leaving the airport for our hotel just outside of Havana until about 2 am. Cue the sleepy band nerds.

      hUNbu5p.jpg
      The next day we (luckily) weren't forced to be up for 6 am, as originally planned. We toured old Havana that morning, and got to see these cool cannons which, if I recall correctly, are from the 16th century. I had to get a picture with them, because they reminded me of the cannons in old Québec that are from the 19th century. If I thought the ones in Québec were old, then what were the ones in Cuba considered?

      B6CsUKN.jpg
      We then took our busses down a long, underground road (which I later learnt went UNDER the bay you can see in the picture with the cannons) and continued through the city. We weren't quite downtown yet, but still saw old building and statues such as the guy above. Fun story about this guy: The Spaniards hated him, so if you angled yourself just correctly you'd get...
      BeeigIa.jpg
      dick statue.

      LpwOnmH.jpg
      The next day... we woke up to the news that one of our busses wouldn't be running that day. We were a group large enough to nearly fill the two whole busses. We had no other option but to squeeze onto the one bus. I called it the stuff mobile.

      FxpEify.jpg
      That night, we went to the infamous Jazz Cafe, and drank a lot of Piña Coladas while listening to the SUPERB live music. However, as you may notice, the picture above is during the day. That's because we went back the next morning for a percussion clinic! The clinician was one of the members of Cuba's Novel Voz. Afterwards, our Vocal Jazz group performed, and the rest of Novel Voz performed too. We ate lunch with them, and then parted our separate ways. Not before buying their CD though!

      PTsQDol.jpg
      During our stay in Cuba, we visited two schools. One was the National School of Art (a boarding highschool), and the other (pictured above) was Eduwardo Abuela School of Art (a boarding elementary/middle school) We heard many of their students play and were blown back by all of them. According to the Principal and Vice-Principal of the National School, we were also absolutely amazing and are invited to visit again if we find ourselves back in Cuba.

      KHQOa8k.jpg
      Our second last day in Cuba was an exciting one, we travelled 4 long hours to see the hillside of Cuba. We even travelled inside a natural cave made out of "Mogotes"
      DyonQ3s.jpg
      We also ate a lot of ice cream that day. They sold them in buckets for 2 pesos. There were a lot happy band kids that day.

      r442XJD.jpg
      We didn't let our last day get us down! While we may have spent hours waiting at the hotel just to load our suitcases, that certainly didn't stop us from having fun.
      ukDhToP.jpg
      Due to our delayed flight, we got to stop and have dinner once we were back in Varadero. We could hear and see a big party in the distance, but even with our abundance of time, didn't go. As you can see in the picture above, we had some... hyped up people.

      exh7E8J.jpg
      Seeing the snow during our decent really wasn't ideal, but this is where I live, unfortunately. We got a great view of the sunrise that morning though, thanks to the fact that our flight didn't actually end up leaving Varadero until 4 am. It was a very nice and quiet plane ride, so I got all my slumber in there. (Hard to sleep in the hustle bustle, hot airport.)

      All in all it was a great trip. Until next time! smiley12.gif

    • 5 facts ft yours truly

      4 years ago

      PinkAura Artist in training

      Hmmm... 5 things people might not know about me. Let's give this a shot.

      1. I am Jewish. Which is more of a recent thing because of conversion and stuff. I don't speak a lot of Hebrew though.

      2. The first games I can recall playing were old computer games like Granny in Paradise, and some Dora the Explorer game (even though I hated that show with every living fiber as a child), but I'm sure there were many others.

      3. The name PinkAura was actually super duper random. It just came to me in a burst of inspiration 3-4 years ago on Wattpad. A pink aura, as I've looked up now, is the colour of someone's aura who is creative and does a lot of creative writing/art. Or that's what I'm recalling. Too lazy to go look it back up. And now with RWBY, there's even more auras to go around! Yaay! smiley0.gif

      4. I always say I hate sports, but that usually only ever goes for participating in them. I love going to hockey and football games. The only sports I'll participate in are ultimate frisbee and touch football. Or skiing.

      5. I adore theatre! I wanted to audition for Les Misérables this year, but with work and cons, there wouldn't be any time smiley2.gif I've also participated in Féstival Thèatre Jeunesse the past 3 years, and really hope I can again this year. smiley0.gif

      Bonus Fact: I've left this post sitting open for hours. Oops. smiley8.gif
