Things have been pretty good over the winter holidays! Christmas was nice and at New Year we had a house party and I got to see some friends I hadn't in a long while ^^ Then in January we went down to Nottingham to visit Arro
! It was a surprise visit, as far as Arro was concerned, and I got to sneak up behind and frighten him with my manly voice. Truley enough to send a shiver down into anyones loins.
But yes, from the beautiful Fiona I recived an electric piano as a christmas gift. Its awsome! Like, damn. In the past I tried to learn how to play the piano, but it was on a keyboard I got from my grampa that he had when he was young. It was as heavy as an elephant and had a very limited range of (non-weighted) keys. It was from a time when plastic, wood effect panneling was fasionable and to top it off it was out of tune. This made playing it about as enjoyable as dropping it on your foot. This new keyboard is a dream, though~ It sounds like a real piano, and that is really everythign I could ask for. ^^ I've already started trying to learn a song and I'm having a great time.
As for University, the poster project is still bobbing along nicely, as you may have noticed from recently uploads. I managed to finnish my character animation on time for the hand in, but it looks horrible - I might upload it to youtube and let you see, if I decide it does not bring shame upon my people to do so. My Honours project (The Darastrix news report) has been on hold for a while but now that everything else is done fro the time being, I'll be starting work on it again
Very soon though we'll be starting back for the second trimester at University and beginging some new Modules - They start much too early in the morning for my liking ¬.¬
Finaly, one night at work when Fiona needed possession of the laptop I did something I haven't done in a long time - drew a page for Darastrix!
I've managed to complete one full page (Non-digitaly so far) and I've got several half pages done and about 19 pages of dialogue planned out. I'm a bit shakey and out of practace, but its looking pretty good so far
I still cant afford to devote too much time to it yet, unfortunatly, but it'll be good for times when I'm stuck without access to a computer~
