Well yeah, there is that and...

no comments on my last journal so no new features XD

and yeah I know I featured people previously before that and everything :|

GAAAAAAWWWWW [yes, no "D" added]
I forgot I had work today. Mom asked me if I wanted her to wake me up [how the hell did I have that totally backwards the first time I typed this? >_>;;;;;] and I thought we were going to go uptown to get my glasses fixed... so I was taking my time, since she seemed to be. Then she told me to hurry because Jose was wating outside. And...
I'll finish that up in LJ b/c it's all random babling XD;

AH~!
I did try SAI though. MmmMmm I can see why it's liked for line art. I like it now too :XD:
Felt easier [or more fluid or something] than when I use painter like I normally do.
and it was easier to fix/change/alter the lines for the line art in there without needing to change the sketch first. Though gwyn's leg seemed just as much if not more messed up than before |D;
And I was so sad I couldn't get her foot/shoe right... :iconorzplz:
Though I wasn't using a reference, tutorial, or anything anyway...

I'm thinking about colouring it in Photoshop though.
LOL I know I was suppose to colour my Cool Couple line art in there... but there are so many things I don't like about how I did the line art...
:iconheaddeskplz:
looking at it usually makes me smile sadly because I put so much work into it, but still really dislike certain parts of it.
|D; however, I'm hoping coloured versions of that line art by 1Black-Saber and tawna222 will make it... somehow better? LOL
though I know even good colouring can't fix everything
:iconfacepalmplz:

I'm not sure if I want to print off this line art and colour it traditionally though.
line art - Precious Treasure by Aisuryuu
I DID get new paint brushes... but they are untested.
And the colours for that line art are pretty bland XD; LOTS Of black [or just dark colours in genearl] actually >_>;

And... I don't think I really want to know when people I watch write crit for other people. I don't really care |D;
But that is kinda sad that only subbers can put the crit option on their deviations now?
I sorta like and don't like the 'crit system'.
It is sort of nice how it's seperate from the comments now though.
I don't feel I can give critique though. I don't feel I really know anything about art techniques or would be able to help anyone. I was always wary of giving critique unless specifically asked. Even then I didn't always give it because I didn't know what to say XD; I would sometimes though. But I'm utterly self taught myself. and I've been giving much critique myself. Some of it I already knew, don't have time to "improve" or work on, or just don't want to work on at the time.
I'm not on dA for Critique. I'm not sure how to say it. I'm not here for "pageviews" or the ill defined popularity either. I just like having a place to put my scribbles, collect scribbles by others, and talk about said scribbles with certain people XD
I don't really like being in the public much actually.
Which is why I only like to be on private boards on iScribble, and never go to forums or chat rooms. I use IMs because I have greater control over who can contact me and who I talk to. Or who can see what I put anywhere.

Eh, before I get into a rant or something else I think I'll stop talking about that. Pretty much everything about it has been said before anyway.

But...
I've been asked before if I'd do a tutorial. maybe more than once even XD; I'm pretty sure at least twice.
It blew me away.
Seriously... ME? What could I possibly do a tutorial about? I don't have a mind-blowing technique. I don't deem myself as being super proficient in using a pre-defined style. And quite frankly I think that my, for lack of a better word, style is really weird.
Also, I don't really put as much work into my pieces as I could. Well, let's be honest. As I SHOULD put into them.

yes, I do want to go back to school. Yes, it is art related. but no, it is not in the animation style in the least. If anything I'd be more likely to write a book than try become an animator or try make my own cartoon series XD
Even if I did do something it would likely be something I started off for fun or for personal reasons. Not because it's my life long goal to become famous and draw a series that gains insane popularity. Because I'm pretty sure you don't make any money as a comic artist or what-not UNLESS your get very very very lucky and your series happens to gain a huge fan base [and you get a good producer or whatever]. Not that I'd be in it for the money, but being in that line of work you need to make a lot of money... because you won't have time for anything else. And you'll be a starving artist if you don't XD;

I do enjoy drawing though. That's WHY I do it. Because I like to. And I have the insaitable urge to draw.
I just have to.

I know some artists have made vids of them drawing or colouring a piece. As an example of how they do it. Yes, I have considered that. but I'm shy about it XD
I did get Hyper Cam though... I'm not sure if I'll do that though. That was one of the reasons I really liked oC though XD was for the export files. More for me to watch myself [and friends or favorite artists of mine] draw something than to share it with anyone though. [LOL and to collab on-ilne with friends XD] For my own amusement or to help myself improve in any areas I want to improve in.


>_>!
Uh...
Anyway!

I don't know where all that came from XD; but I'll be posting the meme I filled out now ^^;

21. If you could have one wish, what would it be?

30. What is your favorite video game company?
I... can't name you one XD I really don't have one. I don't play newer games much these days because, quite frankly, they've been pretty sucky IMO. So... yeah. They don't make 'em like they used to yanno.

31. Do you like doing quizzes?
If I'm in the mood yes.

34. What is your favorite Pokémon?
ARGH. this question is the bane of my existance :dead:
I don't know who I could say is my favorite. I tend to notice I always train a Magikarp to a Gyarados every time I play though. And it ends up being one of my best pokémon... New gen wise I have a liking for Lucario. I know, just like EVERYONE ELSE right?

35. Have you ever seen a house on fire?
More times than is good I believe.

I don't know if I've ever read one that was EXACTLY 100 pages. but I've read many many books 100+ pages.

38. Are you a Christian?
Grandpa Fred said Wallace and I were. But I'm not following a religion or anything personally. I've been... promised or something to the Penacostal because of my late granny Mary mom told me. And we ended up going to church with Grandpa Fred to the Anglican in Old Town a lot. I've been to a number of churches [because of family or friends] but it's not like I'm dedicated to a faith or anything. I have beliefs though. I don't believe in a "God" per say though.

39. Who do you like better: Mario or Sonic the hedgehog?
Neither for the new gen actually. Old gen I prefere Sonic. Like, the original I mean. Mario was still epic, but I loved Sonic more as a kid |3 Mario was just always just kinda there regardless.

more than I should I think XD; it migrates into my written writing |D;

43. Do you like to draw with a pencil or computer mouse?
Pencil actually. I've always loved using my pencil <3 I did use the mouse for a while though. I have a tablet now... so that's sorta like a middle-ground from mouse and pencil isn't it? LOL

44. What kind of desktop do you use?
er... anything I feel like XD tends to be fan arts I find on-line that I love I guess. I rarely find a wallpaper that I like enough to use for long.

45. Have you ever beaten a video game?
Of course. I prefer to beat a game once I've started it usually.

No, but my brother does. Game Shark as well.

XD yeah. A lot of my digital art are doodles. I seem to be more serious when I have my pencil in my hand. but maybe that's because it's harder to fix mistakes and what-not? LOL with the computer I can make multiple copies of an image, save it, work on it more later, or things like that. with my pencil images I have to try make it look good the first try or it's nothing XD;
