By day, I am an average, introverted programmer solving absolutely ridiculous problems.

But by night I becooooooome... ! Some nekomimi with blue hair I guess.
... yeah, that's all I got.

I do not focus on bondage art, but end up drawing way too much of it anyway. Not super comfortable with it, but not in the mood to stop either. Hence you get the super awkward mix of non-bondage and bondage art that is my gallery.

Please, do not point fingers. *hides under all the blankets*

Oh hey. It has been a while, hasn't it?

In fact, I'm not even sure how to approach this right now. Writing journals like this tends to get ye loose. Words beget more words, eventually culminating in a waterfall of phrases that have little to nothing to do with what you were originally talking about.
Totally doesn't apply to literally any kind of informative writing I ever did.
Gah I'm bad at this.


ANYWAY, hi guys and gals and everyone else! I'm gonna write about some things now! You can read about these things then, and you'll have the knowledge about things in your mind and then you'll know the things and the things are gonna be all over the place and it's gonna be fantastic.

Actually, who am I kidding, this is just gonna be me rambling about various topics in the spectrum of the current goings-ons for a bit. No big call to action this time, no huge amazing news, just... me.
Just Alodo.



Really though, whenever I have one of those longer periods of time, where nothing's really going on in terms of uploads, I feel like I should do something else to stay "around".

Yannow, like, being more active on twitter. I never realized how many artists post their stuff on there. Though I don't really feel like going all out of my way to advertise my twitter now, seeing how I don't even know what I'd eventually post on there. I guess I could post doodles there, the ones that eventually get combined into sketchhoards. Though I dunno. That kinda stuff already went weird when I tried it with tumblr, so not sure if twitter would be any different.

Or maybe I could join some of the more art-related groups on Discord.
... though the ones I know about, I either don't see myself fitting in at all, or I keep on hearing kinda awful things about them.
I mean, I could theoretically make my own group and just do whatever I'd want with it, but I don't really see that working out. For one thing, I wouldn't really know how to keep it active, nor do I feel like there'd be enough people to keep it alive in general. Seems to me like it'd be a rather trash group in the end.
Plus, playing moderator for these kinda things is harsh. Especially when you're generally just tired and done with everything by the time you get home for the few hours you have in a day. So... ech. Just gonna keep my hands off that idea.

I guess I could also just do what I keep on saying I might potentially do, which is to post more simple, small postings every now and then. Though I don't seem to be that good at that either. Any time I tell myself "This one's gonna be simple and quick", it actually ends up taking more time than the "real" project I was supposed to be working on instead. Kinda counter-intuitive there.

I dunno. Maybe I should just give in and let my profile sit inactive every now and then. That avoids the issues of oversaturation at least. And it's not like I'd have to keep on posting daily or even weekly to make a living or such. That's what my programmer job's for.
Yeah, I'm probably making more of an issue out of this than it really is, aren't I?



In more productive news, I unboxed my old graphics tablet again.
It's no special tablet or anything, just a cheap ol' Bamboo Pen from a decade ago or so. Something I bought at some point because I felt that I should give it a try.
Let's see how long it takes till I toss it back into its box again.

As a few of you might know, I draw with a mouse. It just kinda came to that at some point and I never saw any real reason to stop doing it this way.
I tried using a tablet multiple times by now. Every time, I eventually got extremely frustrated and just switched back to my mouse again.
I never quite got the feel for it. My hand gets twitchy and the lines get messy, sometimes my hand cramps up, the curves I wish to draw turn out no way near what I wanted them to look like, I keep hitting the right click and scroll buttons by accident, other times I can't use them without ending up using both hands... it's not really feasible.

Though now with that in mind, I have to wonder: Why are so many other artists so keen on using a tablet, if it's THAT difficult to deal with? I thought it was because it's more natural to get into, if you did a lot of traditional art before switching to digital.
But nowadays, I am starting to feel that doing my art with a mouse might actually be a hindrance of sorts. Sure, it works, but it doesn't really flow, yannow? And even though my tablet lines are rather garbage most of the time, my mouse lines aren't all that great either. Often times, I'll have to fall back to pseudo-vectors anyway. I can't really put my finger on it, but I'm starting to feel like I'm doing this wrong.

Soooo, here's to another attempt at using this thing. But this time, no more switching back. I'll make some art with this thing. And it'll be something serious. No more drawing a few doodles and calling it a day. REAL stuff.

... so yeah, if you notice my next few arts looking a bit different in a couple places, this is likely the reason. Trying to switch tools. Maybe it'll make it all a lot easier in the long run.

Maybe.



Meanwhile, the little mod I made for Don't Starve Together has run its course. And I'm glad that people enjoyed this one, despite it being thoroughly non-bondage-related.
Of course it didn't break any records or such. Best it ever got was 10th place on the weekly rankings, before inevitably getting buried under memes. Though that's fine, and pretty much what I expected anyways. Plus, the feedback it did accumulate was rather positive, so no regrets there. This whole thing went rather well.

In terms of future projects in that area, I got nothing really going on though. The most I recently did in terms of private programming is learning how to write proper bash scripts. Didn't really ever do those before, and given how I'm not necessarily nimble in handling UNIX machines, it seemed like a nice idea. Might become useful at some point.
Though besides that, nothing really going on. Maybe at some point I'll get my hands dirty with some submittable stuff again, though I don't think that'll happen any time soon.

Also, to anyone who decides to contact me about problems with their computer: Please don't. I really don't know what I'm doing.

Quite a few people around me recently got into trouble related to their computers not starting anymore. And since I at least know *some* stuff about computers (yannow, being a programmer and all), I always feel kinda obligated to assist there. Though honestly, I'm surprisingly uneducated on troubleshooting these kinda problems, so it often ends with someone else coming along to save the day. It's kinda silly, but true.

Oh well, here's hoping that all the computers in my vicinity are just going to behave from now on.

Anyway, time to continue doing this art thing.
With a tablet.
God help us all.

This update is now up to date and you are now in the state of knowing all the things that were stated during this update.

Yes.

...

I don't know how to end this journal entry, so here's a picture I made.

Dear Alodo

I can totally understand so I can wait for a later date. Which persona I was thinking of is me with the puffer vest. I would also like to correct my pronoceation for which I apologize for. Anyways for the arm restraints would be a y restraint, and a spreader bar. Hope that eases confusion.

Sencerly: Jeremy

=w=' That's one way to respond to a note.
No worries about the pronounciation thing, I just wanted to make sure I got ya correctly there.

But yeh, alright, gotcha. I'll throw it on the list, but as already stated, it does not seem very likely to happen.
