I did one whole week of 3 pages in my study sketchbook a day! OvO Yaaaay~
I did a little experiment with the posemaniacs poses I did today though…All 45 seconds as usual, but I did each page under different circumstances.
and White Noise (some Celestial White Noise I found on YouTube)
Music was a little easier for me to work with, since I was busy enjoying the music rather than panicking about how I was drawing…No music wasn’t bad, though I couldn’t fight away worried thoughts with the time limit XD
And then the White Noise…
My gestures turned out way different than the other two O_o I dont think in a good way either. It’s like they got worse. It’s weird.
Art thoughts on 'how to' tutorials.
Objectively, I’m trying to figure out why exactly that one tutorial is so popular*. And in the end, I think it’s because there’s a hidden genre of ‘how to’ tuts that hasn’t been exploited yet - in both a good and bad way.

you know, the break-up hasn’t influenced my art, because I’m not letting it do it.
I have this (other) dear friend who told me to pour my sadness into my writing and my painting
yet he didn’t want to listen when I said I know I can’t write well when I’m sad — sad is overwhelming, it won’t let me think, it only makes me miserable to try and fail. I know myself well enough.
and then he said I should try anyway or paint something and… I don’t want to make something awesome but have those hurt feelings so poured into the piece that all I can remember when I see it from then on is that hurt. It would be looking into the past.
even though I’m not good with feelings, I know how to portray them, and I can feel them and remember them if I print them onto something. That should be even obvious.
so yeah I had to wait until I felt better — still am — to write, and I had to paint different things than sadness, like the sakura I did.
I just… not every single artist works the same. how is that hard to understand?
One of the things I can never understand is when an artist copies other artists styles constantly, but then acts like its their thing. I’m totally fine when people try next styles to experiment, thats fine, but when all they do is copy then what the hell are you learning? I guess it just frustrates me because they do it as a smoke and mirrors type of thing, to hide that their concepts, anatomy, and overall designs are weak.
But I guess thats how people can be, give them a crappy drawing with glitter all over it and they think it’s the best thing ever. (I dont think everyone is like this I just seem to come across it both online and offline.)
The Day and An Interesting Dream.
Did some cleaning out of files last night and got rid of some older sketches as well. Things are doing much better today. However, I had a strange dream about one of my friends and I in an animated movie. It was kinda funny, and action based. Plus, it was kinda intriguing and kinda humorous to see us in animated form.
Maybe, it’s an idea to make this as an actual animation? Who knows. I’ve also been feeling like crap, physically, today while in bed. I’ve been neglecting going to the doctor off for awhile, so maybe it’s time for a check up. Especially, if I’ve been having chest pains…
Still caught up on this dream however, it was pretty cool. *laughs* Anyways, back to work and cleaning up some stuff.
I bought twenty goddamn canvas panels.
they were on sale! (am I justifying the purchase or am I explaining my excellent shopping skills?)
seriously yall, if you use canvases, get thee to michaels because they are having a 50 to 60 % sale on their entire stock of them. (at least at my store) if you are a coupon wizz, you can save even more but I forgot about that.
I also bought a few little bottles of craft acrylic, craft gloss, light molding paste and some gesso… the molding paste was the most expensive thing, of course, considering it was the only thing I bought that was like, actual ~professional~ or whatever
shit there went my art budget for the
summer next two months, but the canvases will last me a lot longer than that.
godddaaamnnn am I happy
i dont want to be an asshole
but at this rate ill drop drawing and start writing
