No news.

Just being here.

I've discovered Nirvana. I mean, I have known about them, but never really looked into their music. Pretty good stuff. Not everyone's cup of tea, but I'm hooked. I have also found myself thinking more in terms of books I want to write. Maybe I'll get back into writing sometime, if I and when I get the time. In the meanwhile, I really ought to stop indulging in social networking and stick my nose into some homework.

That's really all.

Clubs and Life

The new semester got off on a rough start. School-wise, it wasn't so bad, but in life, it's been interesting. I won't bother with that, but as far as art goes - I'm barely doing much.

With an awesome commission opportunity in the works, I was slammed with more homework (and unexpected communication delays with an instructor), that time for the commission has diminished quite a bit. I'm struggling to find time, now. I can only be thankful the deadline was pushed back. Still, it does not feel good or professional to have delays; this is an unfortunate fact of freelance, though. You never know what obstacles are thrown your way. The only thing you can do is make the best out of the situation. Even if it means a few sleepless nights. Get the job done, get it done well, and maintain a positive outlook. You don't want your client feeling bad for you - especially when it's a rather exciting experience to be working on such a large project.

Anyway, all in all, I'm getting homework under control and will be getting the commission worked on. I have been sketching more regularly this week, and hope to scan some of them in and continue some sketch dumps online. Here are a couple done this week digitally:

This may or may not be contributed to a club in the making.

Some classmates are doing well to convince me into helping organize a drawing club at my school. The woman who approached me about it said, "We can't do it without you, or at least someone like you." Indicating to my art. It's a lot of pressure when you actually realize so many people look up to your work like THAT. I'm by no means professional, even! Still, I can't deny it made me feel important and humbled all the same.

After finding some other students interested, I've seen some of their work, and I think we'll all be able to teach each other something. It will be interesting, if we can get it off the ground. Moreover, if we have the time to dedicate for it.

Fall Semester Finals

It's been seven months since I've updated or even accessed my blog; oops. It's been two semesters, and now we're at the final week of the Fall Semester. Tomorrow is Jury and then I'll be off for three weeks (albeit working a lot more).

There hasn't been a whole lot when it comes to art, but it's been an interesting road since Spring Semester. This has been a year of changes.

Anyway, hoping to keep updated on here.

It seems my pen, pencils, and stylus aren't wanting to cooperate with my mind. I can't draw worth anything today. Going to keep sketching anyway, practice is the only thing that'll make it all better.

Notes acquired from reading - In a story, it's best to keep the dialogue as free as necessary, and avoid making it sound "forced." Show, don't tell. Don't give away insights to an event through telling, just show it. Avoid redundancy errors, such as elaborating on gestures and speech to restate that a character is such and such. Allow the reader freedom of imagination and give them the benefit of the doubt, trust that they "get" and "remember" details. All noted, but to put them in practice will require a lot of...well, /practice/. o__o Looking forward to it fosho. Must prepare for this year's NaNoWriMo, after all.

Still here!

With all the chaos and hectic-ness that has become my average day lately, I've forgotten about this blog and neglected it along with all the other places I visit. O.o

What's new?
I'm glad to say I'm close to finishing the last of five dragons I was commissioned to illustrate for a collectible card game in the making. I'm very excited! After that, I will begin and finish the five commissions from deviantART. Looking forward to painting something different from dragons. o_O

School is too much of a mess for me to even find where to begin. I'm just going to say that I have five weeks left and I'm counting every. Single. Day.

Lastly, I've got my first issue of ImagineFX magazine and it's absolutely inspiring. :D I did one of the workshops and thought I'd share that bit:

Well, that's it from me, for now. I'll try and update this soon. ^_^
