lately, i've been working on improving drawing techniques and such, and using construction and whatnot. i started last monday. i can hardly believe how much it's already helped in such a ridiculously short amount of time. for once, i actually feel totally confident when drawing, like i know what i'm actually doing, and i hardly chicken out anymore, which is pretty big. i still know i need to practice a ton, but i'm starting to get on top of things so much more than i thought possible. it's like everything's changed.
so that's pretty damn sweet.
i'm still practicing with just basic lines and whatnot, but i'm starting to think i should work on expanding what i do, maybe try working with different materials and colors, since i would like to be able to make fully polished images and such on my own. also, i don't want to keep avoiding color since apparently i have a good sense of it when working with digital art.
i'm also asking some friends about borrowing a wacom tablet pen since a lot of friends have them (some say they might have extras) and mine's been gone for about a year, and i'm really wanting to give stuff like sai and photoshop a shot now that i have some proper technique and i haven't been giving up with any drawing related stuff lately. i'm still gonna buy a replacement pen some time in the future, but i got no money for that quite yet.
also i got an account on here:
not sure i feel too comfortable about having an account on there, and the ads they show certainly don't help that feeling, but i'm posting whatever every few days. i finally joined since i had a close friend (Kaweki
) who joined, and i thought 'why the hell not i guess, there's several people i know on there and my artwork's relevant sometimes'. you can follow me there if you're into that sort of thing.
also, quick note about stetik: it'll probably be back to full speed development on it later this month or early next month, since my partner for that project (QuadeZaban
) said he'll probably be available to work on it around then. i haven't chatted with him about the project, so the date of when he's finally available for this might've changed a bit, but just know that it's not forgotten.
i also gotta work on fixing up my grades and studying for finals, so later.
