Thanks DeviantArt for keeping track of my age because if it wasn't for that, I'd still be calculating it with my fingers which would still probably take years, wholly defeating the purpose! :U
But yeah, I'm 24 now! March and April have passed by and I kept my promise to sit down and learn how to use Photoshop, with nice results I must say! At first I wanted to keep a strict schedule with these, delivering a new drawing each Saturday, but once I've started to alternate personal and commissioned work hours I've realized that wasn't really possible; still, I'm not going to slack on these pieces so I'll be sure to start a new scene as soon as I'm done with another, and try out as different atmospheres as possible so I can experiment with a bit of everything. Don't worry, I have a miles long list of ideas and remakes that will take years to exaust! xD
So all in all, I'm happy about what I'm doing and what I've learned so far: February hasn't been such a nice month and so was the beginning of March, so I needed to shrug off all that negativity with a good dose of self confidence and being surrounded by people I love; it might seems silly saying it just like that, but the sight of se succeding in making drawing with such style and colours really helped me.
Hey, let's talk about these last days! xP The birthday present from my parents has been a new cellphone, which apparently I really needed because the battery of the old one was completely busted... with this and the new compy acquired last Christmas, I'm slowly upgrading my technologic stuff xD Now I only lack a new tablet >w>
By the way, it's not a smartphone, rather a Blackberry-styled qwerty phone: the reason of that is because I can't stand touch screens and I'm not keen on having a small computer always with me, so this one's just fine (or at least it still looks just like a regular damn phone). It's a cute one actually: www.telefonino.net/new_files/i…
it's got gems for buttons! And a little pochette to put it in and a strap with many shinies eeeeeeeeeee *w*
I can't download silly games on it, but it's ok because I got Lock's phone for that :V
Speaking of him, he's stayed here for a week and I've organized a sushi dinner for everyone! He brought me Ticket to Ride, which we have played on Tuesday evening until midnight to wait for my birthday. The weather has been really good in general, so we've alternated long walks to doodling and shenanigans. We've also completed Broken Sword III together, and Inherit the Earth (that Sense gifted me on Steam) in a couple of days xP All in all, it's been an awesome and relaxing week, and most probably one of my best birthdays ever <3
As for future events, I'm really looking forward to this summer: Lock will finally present his Sinergy comic in printed form (hey, you can also read it here! www.facebook.com/sinergycomics…
) at a comic con in Salerno, so he'll stay here for a while as usual, but I don't know where we could go next... I've been wanting to visit Spain again after a lot of time, so I'll see if I can convince him. My spanish is a lil rusty as of now but I'm sure a trip to Barcellona will do the trick :V
His comic will also be presented at Lucca this year, so things will be extra chaotic this October: moreover, we're gonna stay there for more days and we're probably going to get there by car and not by train? I dunno, but I do know we're probably going to spend our summer organizing this trip, wherever we are :V All in all though, I find it cute and fun to organize such things together.
I'm probably gonna go back at my drawings for now, but I'll keep my journal updated during these summer events xP
