Been a while since my last post. Here’s a pic I took of my giant plushies together. I want to do another full collection shot soon since this is only about half of my collection xD Something about all this bright colours always makes me happy.
My entry for @lackadaisycats ’s Halloween contest! I hope the quality is okay haha
I’ve been a fan of Lackadaisy for a while so its about time I did some fanart! Each update makes me wanna cry– its so beautiful and funny and it really inspires me to keep working on my own comic :’^)
This was prolly the fastest I’ve ever done a fully cleaned up and coloured animation…this took me 6 hours I think? Wish I could’ve added Rocky’s stripes but that wouldve taken 30 years. Anywayyyy please go read+support Lackadaisy– it’s an amazing comic!!! 😊
Lisa and Lance Underwood are Zack’s little brother and sister. They were archived since the scene they were meant to be in in Murphy’s Lard was altered. They’re 6 year old twins, smart for their age and full of sass. Lisa is the oldest twin, and tends to be the voice of the two. While they both like driving Zack crazy and pranking him whenever they get the chance, Lance is the quieter one, a little more introverted than his sister.
When Zack came back from his first day of school in Danville with the story of how he met Milo, his parents didn’t immediately believe them. His Grandpa was the first to believe him, but Lisa and Lance were thrilled with the idea of Zack having a jinxed best friend, whether it was true or not. When their brother finally invites Milo and Melissa over for the first time to finish a school project, the twins are all over Milo with questions. Lisa in particular takes an immediate liking to him, and will venture into his backpack the moment it’s unguarded.
Lisa and Lance still have disagreements, and they still have arguments with Zack in only the way siblings can. Zack is a little more chill around his twin siblings and let’s them climb all over him at times, literally. Lisa and Lance both look up to their big brother despite his lack of courage at times and his pride. Lance will never say it but he wants to be just like him when he’s older.
I will have a post about Lisa tomorrow, because I did extra work on her and some reasons why she looks up to Milo.
Something I wanted to try with watercolors for some time now - a night scene. Tokyo is a strange place - there are a lot of empty but brightly lit streets at night and the sky is never perfectly black because of the city lights. Especially the clouds get really highlighted by the glare from the city.
Instead of going for the obvious - cool looking, new built high rise offices I just took a photo while doing some late night shopping and used this as a reference for this painting. I wanted to paint some of the lonely night streets.
I like this idea and how the picture turned out so I’m thinking about making a series of this.

Studying when you’re sick is one of worst things. Trying to
study when you are always sick is even worse and having teachers or lecturers
constantly debate your well-being or how sick you actually are, can be one of
the most depressing situations. I have suffered with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
since I was 16, all through my A-Levels and through my first year of
University. I passed everything! Perhaps I didn’t get the perfect grade, but
for me that is not the most important thing anymore. Here I have listed some of
the tips which help me study:
Don’t overdo it! Set yourself a goal, maybe two
or three pages of reading or a page of notes on reading. The worst thing you
can try and do is bash on regardless. It is important you understand your body
and your limits.
Study in small bursts. I find that studying in
small sets of 20 minutes with a 20 minute break are great for me. It allows me
time to focus on what I need to do, but I don’t tire myself out studying for
hours and hours on end. Naturally, these times can be managed to your own
Set up a nice space. I can’t stress how
important it is that you are comfortable when you are studying, especially when
you’re not feeling that great. If you know you are going to study in bed, make
up you have everything you need in arms reach, including snacks and drinks. If
you are going to study at a desk, the library, a café, the same rules apply!
Make sure the chairs are comfy, that there is enough light and that you are
comfortable leaving your stuff (in case of bathroom breaks or emergencies.) It
is also worth noting that some pain medications can take up to 30 mins to work,
so plan ahead and take them before!
Certain classes will need prioritisation. This
was super hard for me. In A-Levels, I studied what I wanted to study, despite
certain teachers trying to persuade me otherwise. I chose three relatively hard
subjects; English language, German and Psychology. Both my German classes were
at 9am, a time which I super struggle to get up for. Therefore, I knew I had to
prioritise my German studies over my English studies, classes which I attended regularly.
It is important to note that keeping a healthy balance between all subjects is
Podcasts and audio books! Not feeling that great
but still need to study? Find podcasts and audio books on relevant topics and
listen to them while lying down or in bed. (I used to make my own recordings of
my psychology book to listen to when I needed to take a day off.)
Don’t be afraid to take a day off. When I was at
the peak of my illness, I was still trying to force myself to get to all my
classes or to study. Now I realise that I don’t have to feel guilty for taking
a day or two to recover. I try not to let these become weeks, but sometimes it
happens. And that is ok. If you are constantly punishing yourself, you will
never feel good about the amount of work you do complete!
Planning to go to University? This links in with
my previous point. Don’t feel the need to rush into everything so quickly. You
can take a year off. You can recover. You can do things you love to do in this
time. I took a gap year, in which I mostly spent a lot of time with my Mum and
sister before going to University. It helped me so much.
Suffer from brain fog? Use memory techniques
such as colour coding words, highlighting important information, mnemonics, reading
aloud and quizzes. When I suffer from brain fog, I find colour-coding and
visual aids the most helpful. Study groups which break down subjects into easier, more manageable bites of information are also super great!
Stay away from caffeine! A lot of people I know
depend on caffeine in order to get themselves started. While caffeine can help
boost your energy levels for a small amount of time or focus your brain, too
much caffeine can have negative effects on your sleep, which may make you feel
worse the next day. Try and limit your caffeine to two or three cups a day if
you absolutely need a cup of coffee!
Don’t panic. You are doing the best that you
can. If you fail, it is not the end of the world. I wish somebody had told me
this sooner. If you fail an exam, you can do it again, at a later date. If you
fail a year, you can do it again. This happens to people who aren’t sick all
the time. So don’t worry. Just do your best.
Unfortunately, while the cherries were in bloom in Tokyo either I was busy, or it was raining so I could not paint outside. I took some photos of the sakura near my house to paint later and this is the result.
This painting was done on a watercolour paper sample we got while shopping in Sekaido art supplies store in Shinjuku. I wanted to try something a little bit different than usual: I first did a pencil sketch, then painted the picture using my Schmincke watercolours. When I was done with the colours the pencil lines where almost invisible so to add details and depth I used some white opaque paint and Conté pencil charcoal
PS. I was pleased with the quality of the CANSON paper. It matched my style of painting quite well and put up with the masking tape, paints, pencil and charcoal very well.

athena later got very offended at being called “spider hair”
