'Ello people. Its been a while since the last publication.. and I didn't follow up with it last time. Typical arty-farty behaviour. However! I have managed to get over my worry about my art, and I've taken up a pencil again. (You can thank the person later described in here.) I'm writing a lot lately, both in the Rp version of World of Warcraft (Horde side, Earthen Ring.. Lothario that's me!) and in a book I'm steadily working on (70 k words! Bloody hell, eh?).
I may publish some of these things in dA, as I still think that doing Rp is a creative thing, and it takes a lot of effort in order to be able to create an environment that people can expand their imagination. And hey, if you don't agree, roll it up as tight as it goes, bend over, and shove it up your arse. Don't knock it 'till you're tried it.
I think I may publish parts of the story, as well, but its a raunchy, rather dirty one, in some places, so it'll be for only sixteens and over (officially anyways... I don't care, I read a lot of stuff when I was younger, and it gave me inspiration.) We'll see. Anyhow, today I'm sick as a dog, didn't go to uni, too god-damned tired to attend, so I spent a day chillaxing at home. I'm kinda tired now, just waiting for the sleeping pills to kick in, then I can head to bed and enjoy some sleep.
Although I'm watching a horror movie (Insidious) which is very heavy on the sharps and flats on violins, and quite prone to doing the "quiet, tense music then BAM BIG EXPLOSION OF LOUD NOISE!!!!" thing to make you jump. Its alright. I have the volume control. *snicker* If I have nightmares tonight it'd be my own bloody fault, but you know something? A little secret? Come closer, darlings.... So I can whisper... *Quietly* It wouldn't be worse than what I have to put up with already.. a nice diversion, in fact.
Some of the monsters and demons and big baddies in there are interesting looking, though, so you may find something turning up in pencil form.
Right! Time to read the toll of interesting people I know. If you're a friend reading this, this is the part when you look away, 'lest you really hear what I think about you. Alright, today, we cover Olly, aka Sevenfold. Now, I've known Seven (or Reb) for only a little while, but we seem to be getting on just fine. Although they play a female character, he's a guy, and a pretty cool one. When I named the films I liked, they pretty much tallied with his, as well as music taste, and ability to RP. Doubtless he'd say that isn't the case. He has a terminal case of "I have no confidence". Thankfully, just because its a serious dose doesn't mean that its incurable. I'm workin' on it. Reb has a page on here, called thenegative, I advise you to go take a looksee, the stuff's good. I can safely tell you, however, that the BEST stuff he has? Is on his computer.
Ayup, that's right, I got to take a little look inside his files... mwahahaha....
Because I iz just so l33t hakz. And in case you don't speak idiot nerd, that means I'm an awesome hacker. Or am I really...? Am I lying? Who knows!
Only Sevenfold knows. Who, by the way, has a pet named Avenged. Avenged Sevenfold. Fucking. Genius, I tell you.
So yeah, as I was saying, nice guy, he taught me how to make sure that eyes are properly positioned when drawing a face, as they always ended up being too far apart for me. That's sorted, now, apparently by positioning the nose and mouth, if you divide one of the lines again, you get the exact centre of the eyes. He even (quite sweet I thought) did a walk through with me, a step by step tutorial with him sharing his screen through Skype, and using a tablet and Adobe. Sorted out the problem, and I've been practising. I hope to get my scanner up soon and start uploading some of my stuff.
I'm a little annoyed with one of my cats, I did a nice picture of a woman with an hourglass figure in a ballroom dress (nothing too fancy, just outlines) but when I picked it up today to take a picture with my camera, I found that one of the cats had decided to stand all over it.. .and possibly wiped their arses on it for good measure, who knows, huh?
So anyways, that's to do...... more on Seven as I find out.. but nothing personal. I draw the line at that.

Peace, people. Learn to open your minds and express yourselves... you never know what gems'll come out... but watch for the bullshit too.
