I'm never drawing that armor again.

Which is a shame, since it's kinda cool.

Lineart, essentially. Some shading or color would be nice. Blame this one on the new Iron Man movie, or something.

But! Let me geek out for a moment about the fact that the university's scanning room has, not just an Epson A3 flatbed scanner, which I SERIOUSLY should abuse more. Epson does, like, the best scanners. But that's not all. There's also apparently a freakin' light table here! Also, the machines here have actual 16:9 aspect monitors! This is very noticeable as most monitors are, in fact, 15:9 or 14:9 or something silly like that. ( I probably should check the exact number. )
*edit* 16:10. That was it.

The art: I'm not entirely happy 'bout the face, looks kinda wide or something -- and I seem to draw really huge necks for some reason. Oh well. There's also no shading nor camo pattern, which would help and... eh. Take it as it is. Or don't.

I am sorry 'bout the lack of updates.

This blog was created as an outlet for my art, since online communities are, in fact, one of the big motivators for me. Which is a fancy way of saying "I like attention," but skips the fact I'm embarrassed by the fact.

In any case, there are some other things which motivate me - stories put images into my head, and sometimes certain concepts need drawing. However, I haven't had that much of an urge to draw lately ( which is a shame, as I've finally gotten semi-decent with it, ) and currently I don't have a monitor ( nor a display adapter -- IE, a graphics card, ) nor a job to get money to buy ones.

However that's not exactly the key problem - I could get a semi-decent CRT tube cheap or free if I wanted to, and there are some GFX cards I could also get. However, I've found myself doing a bunch of other things that need doing, a lot more since my monitor went *zzzap.*

So, I'm currently doing things like coding, reading science texts and trying to get a job, as well as figuring out of how to graduate, instead of being sucked in by my own computer's access -- there seems to be a difference in attitude between using my own computer and using other computers.

As a downside, I feel quite awkward doing graphics stuff on other computers.

As for blogging... I don't write for the sake of writing. I'm not a writer, like some people, and I do have a rant-about-things blog... which is in Finnish, sorry.

I have been thinking of starting yet another blog focusing on certain other interesting things, but I'm not sure if I will.

I do still intend to draw - I even intend to complete NETTG:TEY, in fact. Maybe I shall write about that later.

4e Dragon

I wanted a nice graphic on a web page I needed to do for school, and... well, that's about it.

I cheat shamelessly there.

Hmm. DrCloud, BTW.

Monitor broken // I draw comics with my brain!

University has scanners, though, so we'll see about art. Otherwise, being without monitor - and thus, computer / net access at home - has been a boon, distinctively. It has helped me notice certain things that I've managed not to think about lately.

I'm reading Shura no Mon in Japanese... I think I have all of it, bought it last February, back when I still had money. I'm up to volume 3 right now. There are 31 volumes, I'll need to check how many I have... I might very well have them all.

I actually found this one originally through Shura no Toki anime, which is a bit... it's not like you'd assume based on early first episode. It goes bad at around midway through, but the early episodes are quite tasty. Adaptation Decay perhaps?

I'll need to tinker with them ads, it seems. T_T;

Okay, Among The Chosen, what now?
