So let's see how these first months of the new year went!
With the whole DeviantArt/FurAffinity gallery makeovers and my new Weasyl account, I felt like starting a new business from scratch. I promised myself to do more personal things (especially digital illustrations), but it's getting harder and harder to alternate my things to commissions. Not that I dislike commissions; they help me go see my love <3 Speaking of that, I was able to spend two weeks at Lock's place in these days, one at the beginning of the year and another one during Valentine's Day holidays. Lock is almost completing his apartment, and that means we'll actually be able to live together in very little time. It excites me, but I'm also pretty worried about the future :/ in the end, though, who isn't? And I know I'll roll up my sleeves and do my best over there as well.
I've decided to work better on my Game Boy/Game Boy Color games collection this year, but up to this day I still haven't found anything new. Dad has brought me a nice wooden case which at the beginning was supposed to hold a bottle of wine and a CD as a present-thingy, but now it's empty and I've found out it has a perfect size to hold a good collection of GB cartridges! I think it would hold 80 games or so. That's quite a number! It's in matte wood and it had a writing engraved on the top, but I've already scrapped it away with sandpaper and I'm currently painting it all white with acrylics to get a nice and smooth drawing surface; it'll end up being all coloured and glossy! I must confess though, I've already used all of my brand new tube of white acrylic, and I'm only at my third layer. I don't know if it's not enough considering I'll have to pass a light sand paper on that as well... And I still haven't painted the inside. I guess I'll do that in black >.>
As or the CD since it's been part of my childhood I wanted to get a copy of the Yoshi's Story soudtrack, but after searching on Ebay I discovered it can cost something like 50 dollars o.o Never knew it could be that rare! Gotta ask my cousin if he still has his copy xP
And speaking of games, me and Lock found the Hero Of Robots arcade game in his local cinema, it's very simple but also addictive, most probably due to the fact and it gives you a card every match xD I don't know exactly how much we spent on that, but all I can say is that by the end of the evening we both ended up having a nice deck xD And the game mechanics reminded me of Barcode Battlers. I may scan the cards later for you to see.
Uhmmhmmmm... As for future events, I'm looking forward to the local Cavacon, which we still don't know when it's gonna be, but I'm sure I'll attend, and to my birthday, because Lock got two tickets for a Sonata Artica concert that is going to be held just in that period! It's one of his favourite bands, so you can imagine how happy and bouncy he is. I like the genre in general, so it's gonna be fun for sure :3
Oh, and for my tattooing diploma, we're still all waiting for them to be printed. If they're not here by the first days of March, I think me and the whole class will just go there protesting >.>
I really don't know how to write anymore because apart from those things, nothing really has happened, so I'll just spare a few more lines to just feature a couple of Tumblrlogs I really like :V For the rest, have fun and see you next journal!
