Hey folks, how're ya'll doing?
I'm doing okay, could be better though, I'll get the crap stuff outta the way fast, I swear this journal isn't gonna completely suck...
Mom went for her tests on Tuesday, and they did find something, but they said they'd caught it early, they're analyzing some of the more in depth tests, but they say cuz' it's early that we shouldn't worry too much, so... In a way it's a relief, Like, it's better to know something's not right than to not know at all, but it's still stressful, and I do worry.
Also, I was meant to be having a blood test that day, but... Kinda' freaked myself out over everything, it's been rearranged for next week.
--Anyway yeah, crappy stuff out of the way, art stuff time.--
And I've been thinking... I know I said I'd start uploading works in progress', and so far, I've really not been doing that, kind of because I don't like my gallery being filled with incomplete works, but I had an idea, maybe I should upload wips, and then move them into scraps when I upload the finished piece, I mean, that seems like a logical thing to do, heck, IS that what normal artists do anyway? Do you guys think this is a good idea?
May also do sketches too...
Also, because I really desire written feedback, like constructive criticism, and advice in how better to improve as an artist, I've decided that occasionally, if I kinda' like a piece, that I might do the whole Request a critique on it. Don't expect it too often though, I'm not gonna request it for anything where I don't feel I've put my absolute all in, because trust me, I don't need telling when my work is crap, I can see it for myself! XD
By the way, I'm gonna be trying things with my Star Wars OC's, think of it as they have two separate Universes, they are: The Characters, and the Actors, it just seems like so much fun, with plenty of opportunities for action (On "screen"), and plenty for drama, and general funniness and cuteness (Off "set").
I also wanna draw more Evergreen, and get back into planning R, cuz' gawd knows I don't draw them enough these days... Also Nene and Rena need love too! Plus the odd fan art here and there, if I feel it. XD
--Art stuff outta the way, now random crap!--
So I recently saw Pacific Rim for the first time... Yes, I know, how could I have missed it for so long...
Well, at the time it was released in cinemas the scars of Hollywood spins on Japanese culture were still fresh in my mind, I was jaded, and purposely avoided any and all hype trains.... That was a huge mistake.
Good god Pacific Rim is just SO. MUCH. FUN.
The Jeagers, the Kaiju, the characters (AndTheAwesomeActorsIAdoreAndWoulda'SeenThisMovieDayOneIfIKnewTheyWereInItAtTheTime!)</i> Especially Mako Mori, SO ADORABLE AND BADASS AT THE SAME TIME.
You can have my heart right now.
Eheheh! Ahem! It was just a sheer joy to watch, and really cheered me up when I needed that boost, so it has earned itself a special place in my heart, and among my all time favourite movies. ^_^
Speaking of a special place in my heart, FTL (Faster Than Light) is now on iOS!!! I can't even put into words how awesome that is! Honestly one of the most enjoyable PC games I've ever played, now out for iPads and such! And it's completely the same, the full game, plus the expansion built in, absolutely no in app purchases or bull crap micro-transactions, just the full experience, I'm... probably gonna waste a hundred more hours on it, and you should too if you can! XD
Anyway, I've been MidoriNoHonoo, obviously, and that's life.
Please, do let me know what you think about the WIP idea, or anything else for that matter, and as ever:
LOVE & PEACE
