I know. School started and I completely stopped designing and drawing. It's a vicious cycle that I need to stop. School has been taking a toll on me, and I'm not doing as well as I want to. I'm so tired. Physically and mentally. Test every week. I've been awake since yesterday and pulled an all-nighter to study for Biology, and the worse part is that I still didn't do well. Aigoo.

BUT, I do have a surprising desire to draw and design again--oh, and dare I say write. Yep, I want to write a fanfic or one shot of one sort. I think I will do just that once winter break comes in the next month or so. I'm excited to do some creative arts again. I ordered a Wacom Intuos4 small because my Intuos3 is just way too big. 9x12 inches, I'm not sure what I was thinking when I bought it. I'm not sure what I will do with it yet. Probably sell it. It was rarely used, 10 times at most, which is sad.

But for now, I should really focus on schoolwork. My GPA this semester is...I don't know, it's going to be bad.

I've been spazzing too much about SNSD, and reading too much fanfic. I should stop, but it can't be helped.

Until next time.

I spent the last 3 hours updating my portfolio with drawings and painting. Also made a post on my blog aboutmy old drawing.
Please view it here.

My desktop is a mess from all the pics and thumbnails.

Also, gotta say that this is one of my favorite drawings when I first started in 2006.

This video isn't exactly a tutorial, but more of a guide. You guys can see how I make my banners. I use mostly custom brushes and smudging techniques. The smudge brushes used in the newer video can be found here.

....ok, it's not exactly a tutorial since I'm just showing you how I do some of my banners and not teaching you. But you get the point. This video is meant as a guide more than anything. It utilizes one of the textures from my resource from my previous post. I'm going to post my old smudging video tutorial and link to smudging brushes in my next post.

I made some random abstract textures/abstracts that can be used for smudging or adding depth to graphics.

I made this a few days ago. More to come. Since I'm only Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Jessica biased, I might only make one for them. Maybe Yuri and Sooyoung too.

So, I finished a traditional portrait, which you can view here, today. This means I have 2 days to work on some SNSD graphics before I have to torture myself with research work--something that I was suppose to do 2 weeks ago.

I'll try to update soon. I have to sleep now. It's 3:30ish and I have to wake up at 6. >_<

Two weeks ago, I compiled all of the tags (cause that's what I call banners) that I made in 2010. They number came up to be around 32, which is a lot less than the ones I've made in the years prior to 2009. This year, I have made even less. I have made 5 tags at most this year...

Anyway. Just paste and cut in photoshop.

I will sleep now. It's 2:37AM.

Good night ^^

Back in 2007 or so, I made a livejournal in hopes of updating my graphics and resources, but I lost the motivation to and I kind of forgot about it. Now, I want to start posting again. Kind of silly since summer is almost ending, but...here goes my second attempt as keeping a livejournal.

This is my first entry and it hopefully won't be the last like my first one. *cough*.
