The current state of things makes it really hard to tell interesting stories because let's face it, most time is spent at home. :/
Honestly the only positive thing is that I 'won' the time usually spent commuting, which does add up to 10h during the week, but that's about it. Doing everything in one place is hard, however. In fact, it's so hard that I had to improve my planning strategies and install two boards in my room where I track my tasks, both for home things and for university. At
On my recent trip down memory lane I came across a myriad of long forgotten stuff - among other things, the two-page comic Doubt that I drew back in 2014, coincidentally also in November. It's weird that this was six years ago, it still feels extremely recent - especially because I can clearly remember sitting in a park outside drawing some of the panels with freezing fingers. Idk why my younger self thought that was a good idea.
Doubt was an interesting experiment, though, because I decide
Long story short, I was recently reminded of the Clockwork Night game over in G&T ages ago, and realized that the character I played there had the same name as my usual OC/BZP namesake, if you will. And was an Agori/Protector - and that I'd never drawn her, so hey, why not redesign my 13-year-old OC again. So that's what I did, gleefully ignoring that everyone was supposed to be from the Jungle region so I can stick to the old colour scheme, and here we are.
Notable design changes:
I do wonder if anyone still reads this, tbh ^^'
But for anyone who does, life is slowly returning back to normal, and I think that's a really good thing. Also, I'm about to finally finish my current sketchbook after 4 months, which is surprisingly fast for me - normally it takes at least half a year.
Idk if anyone even still knows this existed, but I updated my art collection - after all, I've been drawing more Bionicle stuff again lately, so I need a place to put it all without cluttering GA.
But yeah, expect some more updates from me over the course of the next few weeks. ^^
It's been a while, hasn't it... so what's new?
Days are still more or less the same. That will change next week because I am back to the office.
Home learning is not my thing, which is amazing because uni stays digital until the end of the semester. <3
Art-wise I've hit a plateau, which is annoying. Should probably do some focused practise to start improving again.
That's it from me, how's it going for all of you?
still trying to rearrange my life after last year, and while some things are getting better it still feels like I'm struggling most of the time. At this point I'm seriously wondering whether I had a burnout of some sorts or why else it is all so much for me.
Art-wise it's going okay, though. That's at least something.
... okay I did not know that links are embedded these days. That's fancy. Anyway, posted some artworks in GA, if anyone is interested in that but, like me, does not check the artwork forum every other day ^^'
.... idk how to properly summarize it, tbh. Made a larger decision that changed my life for the better, but it still took until Christmas for me to even halfway recover from what happened before. I just hope things won't excalate as much again, or rather, that next time I'll find the courage to quit a bad situation earlier on and not stay until it is almost way too much to bear.
But there are positive things! I joined a Pathfinder campaign, and through that formed some really great friendsh
... okay, to be fair, apart from "elves are just very cool and I love pointy ears"
Thing is, there is something about them beiong much older than they look that is just relatable in a way. Idk. I too, often, feel older than I probably should at this point (or maybe the times are jusut moving far too fast for me to keep up these days, idk), yet people tend to estimate my age to be younger than it is. (the only time when that wasn't the case was when I was stressed out of my mind. Even got a
Figured I might as well post it here also. It's been a while since I've last drawn something even remotely Bionicle-related, so it's been a fun change. (also, including actual clothing instead of just random clothing-like elements? that's almost a first. Almost. I did do it back in 2009, but that's sooooo long ago...)
Ah yes, and in case you're wondering what EOD is, check this out. (spoiler: it's a game)
Life is still hard from time to time. And weirdly enough, studying never gets easier, even though I've been through all of it already. It's odd. :/
But at least programming is kinda fun, so I am not regretting this decision ^^
Was inspired by Akaku: Master of Flight (how everyone does this fancy tagging, I have no idea :/ ) to make a timeline of my character over the years. So I did that.
[regular link, until I figure out how to link thumbnails ^^]
I couldn't find anything for 2011, so either I really didn't draw her in that year or I lost the scanned files. Don't feel like digging through my myriad or sketchbooks though, so I'll leave it blank for now. I know that especially around 2008-2009 the
Ah idk I don't want to always just post every single redesign of my char to GA, that feels kinda spammy. So I'll just leave the sketch here.
Actually I was out for some urban sketching yesterday, but after finding out that BZPower is back up - let's say I was inspired, and that happens so rarely these days that I let myself get distracted
About the sketch itself, it was as always done in ballpoint pen, because I actually like that better than the regular pencil these days. ^^' Doesn't sm
Huh, that's good to know! (actually, I am delighted, but trying to play it cool. Working? I doubt it.)
What have I been up to in the meantime? Mostly on holidays, and preparing for the new semster, as I decided to go back to uni - this time studying informatics. After all, I did pass the entrance exam, and may actually be able to skip some basic math lectures. That would be great.
Oh yes, and I am playing Pathfinder with a group of friends now, dunno if I already mentioned it before.
