some shuteye
there's still some autumn left
some colour, brittle, goldenrod
till everything should turn to grey
a body made of charcoal, in january tar,
a scenery of rust melts sanity and
narrows sight, hushing down breath
and whispers of the lungs.
the wind stopped stirring,
leaves stare blankly towards the sky
our ocean of cobalt, deprived of ink
at dusk, the world closes its eyelids
until light dims
and darkness is restored
at last

For my first journal entry, I shall complain. Mostly because today seems to be a good day to be complaining about lots of things - gloomy weather, PMS, blooming pimple on forehead, etc. 


I started using this software called ArtWeaver, it came on the CD which contained the installation kit for my Trust graphic tablet. All in all it's pretty interesting, I mean...most of its features can be found in any digital art software, however there's one thing about it that slightly pushes my buttons - BLENDING!!!

For each brush type you have the option to use it as a Smearing tool, which doesn't give me the same amount of smoothness as a dedicated blending tool would. Furthermore, there is a tool called Distortion, which can be modified according to one's needs, but the more I insist on a certain spot to blend two colors into oblivion, the heavier the colors get and it ends up creating the effect of a bruise. Not something I'm aiming for when it comes to face highlighting, contouring, creating shadows on clothes and so on XD. 

At this point, I'm thinking I have two options: 1. either stick my head deeper into ArtWeaver to figure out how blending works (and if anybody who's reading this knows what this rant is about, PLEASE, help a poor soul out T^T) and 2. get Corel Painter. 

This evening, after work and Pilates I will be diving again into a WIP sketch and hopefully come back by the end of the week with updates :) 

Maki Moonstone, over and out! ...for now.

Romania me it's relaxation. It's stress relief, painkiller, preferred method of procrastination, avoiding adult responsibilities. It's soothing and vile at times. It's...too real to keep it just as a plain ol' hobby for the rest of my life :)
