a tablet post~

The lovely Oyah lent me her tablet a few weeks back, and I'm trying to practice with it at least once a week.

I'm not doing very well. :D

The thing is, I thought tablets were going to be pretty easy to use. Years of watching artist doing a livestream or posting their speedpaints on YouTube made me think that the tablet was a magical item that can suddenly make your art amazing. I regress. Using a tablet really needs a lot of practice on my part.

Here are some of the random shiznit I've been doing as practice. I've only been doing faces lately, and as the year progresses, I hope I get to do backgrounds and poses too!

Lights will guide you home

Forever alone at the office.

I really want to get back into writing! When I was younger, I had a journal every year, just a random notebook where I wrote down my thoughts and feelings. I tried to make the most boring day sound impressive because I kept thinking, "When people dig up my journals in a time capsule, I don't want them to think that all I did was mope around on the Internet all day." Although that couldn't be any truer, haha. Once upon a time though, I hit a wall and stopped writing about my day because I felt that my life wasn't relevant enough to be documented. Cue the rain, sitting on the windowsill, hating life.

That was the teenage angst talking, and now that I am past the teen years (NOOOO), I feel like I have to leave most of the self-made angst behind and start writing again, albeit in baby steps. I feel like I have way too many thoughts in my head right now, thoughts that need to be written as a minor release. The 140 characters that Twitter gives me aren't really enough.

On my former blog, I used to do this thing called Random Rant Monday, where I devoted one journal entry to at least five paragraphs of my random thoughts and rants. I think I'll call it Manic Monday instead! I also thought of this section called Irk-a-lot, just to rant about serious issues, but I realized that I really didn't have much to rant about, haha! I'll probably try to continue that here.

I really hope I keep my promise to myself this time.

Signing off now!

This is a blog to hopefully track my art progress, my guitar playing progress (if I ever get the courage to post!) and my random thoughts.

I hope this blog doesn't shrivel up and succumb to the depths of the black hole of abandoned blogs.
