I tried to draw something, anything last night to refresh my drawing spirit. It came out okay, so then I inked it, kind of the same style that Valerie uses.. I like it and I don't like it.. but it's all good, it's broken me out of the non-drawing state and got my creative juices flowing again! Next I'm going to try a few inked (or not) Chocolate Kiss pictures, that HxH piccie for So-chan, then get cracking on the Chocokiss manga. ^^ Whee, I can draw again!! YAY!!!! =^___^=

So um, in other news.. not much happening. I'm spending a lot of time working on my costume now. I'm going to try to get the fabric pieces cut out for Kuroro's jacket today after class. Then I can go and paint the cross on the back and let it dry. ^^ And I should probably hang up the boas on something before they ruin in the bags. ^^; I just don't know where to put them to keep them safe from everything. Well, okay... back to work! ^.^

BTW, welcome mrs_puppethead! How did you find me? Oh, and goodbye yaoi. I loved you well. But I couldn't put up with all of the random posts of crap that got through. That's why I eventually had to get rid of anime from my friends list..

Oh, and someone posted this icon in the Yuri journal.. I thought the words were very interesting... I didn't take the icon but I wanted to share it..

I am the Natural

Childhood is the golden paradise we are always consciously or unconsciously trying to re-create. The Natural embodies the longed-for qualities of childhood - spontaneity, sincerity, unpretentiousness. In the presence of Naturals, we feel at ease, caught up in their playful spirit, transported back to that golden age. Adopt the pose of the Natural to neutralize people's defensiveness and infect them with helpless delight.

Symbol: The Lamb. So soft and endearing. At two days old the lamb can gambol gracefully; within a week it is playing "Follow the Leader." Its weakness is part of its charm. The Lamb is pure innocence, so innocent we want to possess it, even devour it.

What Type of Seducer are You?

Whee, I'm Botan! Yay! ^__^

You are Botan. You are sweet, cheerful, and
occasionally vague. You are the grim reaper,
you navigate spirits from the human world, to
the spirit world.

Which Yu Yu Hakusho Character are you?

Ehhh... WTF kind of crap is that? I wanted to get Hiei... maybe it's trying to get me in the right mindset for Yaoicon... O-o

You should adore....KURAMA! I don't blame you;
he's sweet and coy, but on the other side of
the chip he's a cold-hearted and calculating.
Either way, he's so very lovely!

Who Should You Adore? (Yu Yu Hakusho)

HEHEHEEE!! Okay, this one I cheated on... Because I originally got Kurama, and was tired of getting Kurama all the time. ^^;

Chibi Hiei
Your boyfriend should be Hiei.
Quiet and cruel (most of the time) he's shown that
he can care for people, when around his sister.

I really like it... It's way cute! I love how you draw Kurapika. Any tips for good manga style inking? Like varying line and such. Mine usually just come out so ... bad ... lol.

I did the same thing, I'm still a member of anime and yaoi but I kicked them off my friends list (anime quite a while ago). Now I can actually almost keep up with my friends list and I don'tget so irritated ;P

Waii, thanks! ^__^ Tips, hmm? One thing you might try to do it ink it a first time, so it has a really thin line. At that point, you can erase your original pencil lines and all the messy stuff. ^^ Then go over it again with another pen (usually a thicker one) and use that to make different thicknesses in the lines and things like that. ^^

That's how to do it using normal ink pens. I usually start with a .005 thickness pen. You can also do it with brushes, but the problems with doing it with brushes is that you have to do it on a really large scale and shrink it down a lot. With brush-tip pens it works also. ^^;

But anyways, yeah.. I like to use normal pens from the art store. The kind that I've been using recently (and really really like a lot) are Steadtler pigment liners in sizes from 005 to 03. ^^I hope this helps a little bit at least. ^^

Inking is teh suck. There are very few inkings that I have done and been happy with. I gatta try that Roticery pen or whatever it's called, that they wanted us to use for Illustration. For some reason I miss that class **sigh**.

I know what you meen not drawing anything..In the past week I have only drawn 1 cat boy. =P I like it, just need to umm give him legs. Though a few weeks ago I was on this drawing spree...now I'm back to bleeehhhh...

Oh well back to fun Pong Programing... If he ever starts to lecture again...

XD whee, programming! ^__^ I'm so glad that I don't have to take that class! I had no idea what the stuff was that you were talking about last night.. Syntax... I always thought that was a weird error that you got on webpages sometimes. ^^;

Yeah, I wanna try that pen too.. we should go out and find out where to buy them, so that we can give them a try at least. I miss that class too. *sigh* It was so much fun! Both of them!

Oooooo! I wanna see your catboy! I read about it on your journal too I think.. I wanna see I wanna see! Esp if you have it done by the time I come home from class. ^^
