November update

November update

Well, two months have already passed and I never realized it. Here's a summary of what has happened so far in my boring-as-heck life: I've never been as open about my life as I am now with this blog/journal/social media junk, but that was mainly because I originally set up this account two years ago to try to solely post art without all the typical teen drama. I was naive at fourteen, and I had an overblown head thinking I was going to make good art back then. Well, now that I've studied fine art for a while and realized dA has the worst art community on the Internet (no joking, the crud that comes out of tumblr and Pixiv looks better than

Can't wait to see this film. It's the movie I've already wanted to see as a kid. May giant robots haunt Hollywood for the next decade. Unless Michael Bay and shaky cam are involved.

Random Stuff

Random Stuff

For the first time, in a long time, I finally have loads of free time to myself. Naturally, I'm wasting it all reading art tutorials, webcomics, novels, Spacebattles, and watching Youtube instead of actually creating stuff. Curse myself. Hopefully this summer should bring me plenty of opportunities to try new things. With that in mind, here's a bunch of random stuff I decided to write about. Went to a TA meeting yesterday at UC Berkeley and filled out the paperwork for my stipend. Hyped at the money I'm going to get. There was a lot of pizza and soda and I actually managed to remember the other TAs' names. Well, about 70% of them. It tur

Exam Time and Other Stuff

Exam Time and Other Stuff

Like nobody else noticed, I haven't been on very frequently as of late. A pretty major reason is that...yup, it's time for AP exams. This time of year's pretty weird for me, because classes at this point end and you get to pretty much goof off during those periods since you're already done with the curriculum However, at the same time, you've also got to cram in order to do well on the exams, which you end up missing half of your school day for. So yeah, hope I do well over the next two weeks. Wish me luck. I've also gotten a TA position for the summer at UC Berkeley, like I did last year. I'm pretty excited because I'll be working with my

Note: this is somewhat of a satire. If you find this offensive, I apologize. HOW TO ACTUALLY STUDY ART Learn to make art like this. Go and study the different aspects of art that make up each composition. -Color theory --Hue, value, contrast, and saturation -Light and shadow -Perspective -Texture -Anatomy -Proportions -Line -Volume -Concepts Et cetera! Keep towards a realistic style, it'll help you learn how to draw a wider variety of things. Push your boundaries. Try different tools and styles, like charcoal and oil painting.

Back to School

Back to School

So...school's started for me again. The first days of being a junior were quite uneventful, even though the first few days are littered with quizzes and such. A lot of pressure and unnecessary nagging on me as usual too (obligatory complaining fulfilled). Trying to get back into my old routine. Why am I typing in short sentences like this. Also trying to rewrite Trinity Heroes (nobody knows what this is) in my head. The title's become quite archaic now (probably needs to be changed to something more appropriate now), some plot elements need some work, and the cast needs to be reworked. My avatar looks stupid, especially compared to the
