Howdy howdy howdy! Did you pass a good February?
Weather wasn't the best in these two months, but I've been going back and forth between Salerno and home to continue my tattoo school. We've been doing a lot of drawings and stydying different styles, and we just finished studying Japanese symbolisms and tattoo styles this week. Next week we're going to do some exercises on cartoons and human figure (yay!) and we'll finally start to use actual tattoo machines to work on artificial skin. Double yay!
I'm pretty excited for this but also very nervous, it'll be the first time I hold a tattoing needle and I just know it'll take a while to get accustomed to it. x.x Oh well, I'm surely not going back now!
On the other hand, I really should open my biology and economy books I still have from high school, as I've found out that most of the arguments I'm studying now are in there; theacher also said they're going to do written and oral tests during the year, so gotta stay prepared. U_U
Also as you may know, I've been at Lock's place last week and it's been the first time ever I've seen snow in real life and actually touched it x3 There hasn't been any snowstorm though, luckily, and the few flakes were enough just to make the groud wet or white in the mornings.
I knooow it may seem childish for me to say this, but I've always thought show had a cotton-like consistency, instead it's much more "crunchy" and slippery, and so wet. Hey, the more you know!
We watched Lincoln this time: we watched the vampire slayer version last time together soooo we were partly expecting another comedy/distortion/adaptation, instead we got an historical movie xP It was very interesting though, and I didn't even realize it lasted for whole three hours! Oh, and we also watched Smokin' Aces on DVD and boy was it fun. xD It's impossible to watch over-the-top action movies without laughing and making jokes if you're with friends. x3
I'm glad everything is turning out to be much more lighthearted lately, also in terms of drawings. Speaking of that, I've finally understood I should threat my characters for what they are (made to draw, experiment and have fun!) and nothing more. I'm not going back on what I did with the city, the name change and all that jazz because honestly I'm okay with that, I just have to go back to sketch freely without thinking too much, really. xP
I'm also going to do a huge gallery clean-up soon, maybe when I'll reach 300 deviations again; I'm looking forward to post less commissions and trades here, as they're really clogging my gallery and putting my personal works in a second place, and while I really don't care about my FA gallery, I don't think it's very nice on my DA. :/ Oh well, we'll see.
I also need to make up my mind and finally decide what to print out for my new portfolio, but that's an old story.
Oh, oh, and I got a Biker Mice From Mars DVD. *W*[link]
It costed a bit and Lock had to buy it for me because I don't have an Amazon account, but it's here with me now and it's finally mine and FUCK YES IT'S THE 1993 SERIES FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFfff
Too bad it's only the first 13 episodes, but I'll find a way to get the others as well. I've heard there are a couple of French DVDs with the eps in it, but I dunno, I really like the english dialogues...
I'll probably write here again at the end of the month or so, I'll go work on my neverending drawings now!
