NewsI'm going to be terribly busy this weekend, so I decided to update this early.
We're finally approaching the end of the Spring Semester; my first one as a college student. This means two things:
1. Soon, I'll actually be a little freer to color some of these stupid sketches that have sat in my sketchbook for weeks and I'll eventually reopen point commishes!
2. First, finals are coming up.
I'm so excited.
For Art, I have to finish my attempt at reproducing Van Gogh's "Starry Night." You know, this masterpiece of complexity: [link]
Yeah, I've only got it partially finished and it's due Monday!
At least this is my last painting of the semester.
I actually really like painting. Granted, I'm not very good at realism, but I like painting. I enjoy the process more than the outcome. Will I post any of what I've done in art class on deviantART? Probably not. I'm proud of what I've learned for my own silly reasons, but they aren't the best things I've ever done.
Looking back, I think the hardest thing I've had to overcome during the Spring Semester is myself. I've had to get past my own emotions and expectations in order to find some contentedness with my environment. And I have found some peace with what I do every week on campus. I like English because I get to type away at a computer, writing more refined and educated things. I like Art because I get to discuss politics, gender equality, sociology, and geek-stuff with crazy individuals. I even like Math because I feel like I'm actually learning something new!
It'll be so weird not having someplace to go on a daily basis.
Unless, of course, I get employed during the summer.
If I could, I would thank you all by name for being so wonderful to me. You guys give me the courage to carry on every single weekday. Thank you for giving my dreaming self a chance to show you what I can do. Thanks for being patient and waiting for me to post something with full colors and with an epic
background. Most of all, I'd like to thank all of those who continued to have faith in me even when I didn't have faith in myself.
And while I can't promise a high-speed for any of what I post here, I can promise that it'll always come from the heart, and that's what's really important.
So, what do I predict for May? I mean, this is
a preview of the month to come, right?
I don't know. Obviously, you'll get to see SOME art coming your way, but I don't know what or when. Comics, a ton of manga and two Belling the Cat
Calendar pix. Yeah. That sounds reasonable.
I gotta go. There's homework due tomorrow that still needs to be done.
Quote of the Month
"Alas, poor Yorick! She heard mermaids, so it follows that something is rotten in the state of Denmark. I have an everlasting cold, but luckily I'm terribly dishonest. I cling to that."
