Good afternoon WordPress viewers. I am back after five days of being knocked off the electricity line due to hurricane Sandy. The week was long, cold and not in good shape. But that doesn’t mean that humor should be left out! But I’ll tell you now, Sandy was devastating and it brought many winds that caused damage. But I thank God for protecting us and guiding us through the darkness because it was truly shocking to be in the dark for five days straight. Certain days were windier than others and it was very dangerous. The streets were deserted and my neighborhood was like a ghost town during that time. The mornings weren’t sunny and there was lightning (it was a blueish-green color). Trees and branches fell down in my area but in some parts of New Jersey the damage was severe. There were evacuations.
But enough talk about Sandy (it gives me the chills just mentioning it) and allow me to share some better news, the type of news I like to talk about! Art! As I mentioned in one of my recent posts and in the title, I ordered a light box by Artograph on Amazon and I received it yesterday. My goodness! I was very happy just to hold the box in my hands and when I started opening it I squealed. I even sang while opening the box and I thanked God for such a gift that would help me in my art journey!
It was a big box that contained the 10 x 12 in. light box. Here are a few pictures that I took:
I finally made it~ But I was working on it this morning. The colors are kind of dark but that’s fine. I think I will be updating old references (I updated Pandy’s a week or two ago).
The only reason I labeled it is because I thought it would be pretty useful for others. You guys can use the ref. if you draw Daphne,but please don’t take it without permission. 🙂 I will be updating and showing you guys refs. for my other characters. I think I didn’t make Roxie’s 2 refs. yet. I am very sorry for not posting,I’ve been watching a few animes just to remember the good old days.
Until then, I’ll be planning a new speed paint just to break the ice!
Oh my it’s only been less than a month since we reached 9K! You know this is great,never have I got 1K views in less than a month,thank you guys so much 🙂 That means a new contest is coming up soon! Fan art section should be out today (I have been lazy towards that,I’m very sorry).
Just 180 more hits! This will be possible,because here a lot of things happen and I try my best to keep this place alive! Sorry if I haven’t been posting,I’ve been tired my little step sister came and it was not such a pretty day.
I don’t know,I just feel like I’m down but I’ll be fine. I’m still thinking in so many things I want to do in the future and that includes plushies! *v*
Since my pen that i currently have is cracked my mom and I finally took action, because she doesn’t like taping this pen 1,000 times every time I drop it and I only dropped it by accident today. It’s the same pen that my tablet already has.
Isn’t it awesome? c: I would recommend this tablet to beginners.
Well yesterday when my mom went to get the mail she checked to see if my camera was sent. Well lucky me that it was there. I was so happy 🙂 It was fun playing around with it because I had no clue how to work it xD But minutes after I knew what to do. Very fast learner.
Anyway about the panda hat…. This I will say as short as I can.
I went out with my cousins yesterday because my aunt and uncle invited us. We were going to a mall not too far from where I live and so it took a long time to get a parking spot (my goodness,it took really long), and so when we got inside we went looking around. Then when we got to some pint were someone started talking about Angry Bird hats,then started the journey. We went up to see them and it was kind of chaotic. I’m going to skip to the part were we go up again. My little cousin wanted the red Angry Bird hat and he started acting like a kid who wants everything but I won’t be mean going into it. Instead of getting a Angry Birds hat myself,I got a panda hat instead~
I did want a hat but I didn’t want my uncle and aunt to get me one,I know I haven’t seen them,but they shouldn’t spend money on me. I felt bad for my other cousin,but they sort of made an agreement. Well that’s my story!
I also took pictures with my camera,I’ll be uploading them later.
Oh my,thank you so much everyone! We reached more than 8K hits! This is another goal completed. I feel like we got more viewers December!!! Thanks so much to everyone who viewed/commented on this site. I am very happy and I know we are going to reach more goals in the future! Let’s keep this up.
Our next goals:
.At least 50-100 followers
.Some more comments if possible.
But I think we deserve a new header… I still have this poll going on that you guys an vote on~!
This is like part 2 from the last post I did. Well I certainly do not use paint (real paint not the software). I think it’s messy and I’m not good with it. I don’t use these oil pastel colors,no, I’d rather use colored pencils and not the expensive kind. Unless your an advanced artist and wouldn’t mind spending more than 50 dollars,I’d recommend Prisma Colored pencils. But I don’t use does (I would love to though).
I use Craz-Art colored pencils (I think I got these at Walmart) I cannot remember the brand because I through the box away and these things are like a year old. But they work perfectly fine. I would use does if you like to color…Trust me you don’t need expensive things like Caio Copic Markers,they’re very expensive trust me. So use colored pencils. I’m not a fan of markers only Sharpies,if you know how to or want to ink I’m buying inking pens next week also,like it brings 4 of them in a pack for over $15.00. I like traditional,but I barely color that way.But I have an example of something I drew on lined paper and colored it. If your a beginner DON’T LOOK FOR VIDEOS UNLESS YOU REALLY NEED A HINT.
YOU MUST DEVELOP YOUR OWN STYLE IN ART. If not don’t you’ll be more than what I call “lost”.
I’m not saying that to be mean,it’s the truth. So you see me drawing,I don’t need the expensive things,maybe when I get older I’ll start getting advanced stuff but not now though I really want to.
You don’t need a tablet.
You don’t need Wacom Bamboo.
You don’t need to do something you won’t care to do.
WHAT YOU NEED IS DESIRE WITH A CAPITAL D.
Because if you don’t,your just wasting your time and really that’s horrible. If you love art,do something,if you don’t get out of it now before it’s too late. It can be just a hobby,fine with me. You need desire to push you somewhere in life. Don’t be an idiot criticizing in a bad way to others,your hurting feelings and your hurting yourself. I’ll be here to help and so will your parents. Also you should tell them about your interests in art or whatever your doing.Now I wasted a lot of time typing,go out there and fight for what’s right,JUST NOT PHYSICALLY!
Oh my~! This request came out beautiful!! Just beautiful. A friend on FB requested me and I made a SPV of this. SHE EXPLODED INTO THE LOVE PHASE!! She adored it and that made me so happy to know about it. I do not own her character..
