I haven't written a journal since August, lol. Wow. Damn. It's been a while, huh?
So, clearly, a few things have happened since then, and a few things will happen after now, so while I lie awake at midnight, playing Omega Ruby, I figure why not?
So, I mentioned this in some of my deviations, as I recall, but I did get a tablet. A Wacom one. I've no idea which one it is, definitely not a Cintiq. It took my a while to figure it out, but I'm having a fair blast using it! All my art that's been posted on here since, ooh, around the hands doodle, has all been tablet. Except, of course, for the traditionally drawn art! It's pretty fun, and I've finally worked out a comfortable set up for the tablet so I don't have to sit awkwardly, which is always great.
I went to New Zealand during the month of September. We started in Auckland, and worked our way down to Wellington, where my mother and I went back home to Melbourne, and my dad went on to explore the South. We saw Hobbitton! Rotorua's famous springs were not worth the smell or poor accomodation. Like, our hotel was right next to a big ol' geyser, and it was a really crappy hotel. Had a nice view, though.
I joined Nanowrimo again this year, and, just like last year, I burnt out at 30k. Makes me wonder how on earth I wrote the first draft of Sinister Beginnings, holy shit. That was like 75 words at completion over 2 years of solid late nights and class time. But it's name was changed to Echo Child, and I tried, and it didn't work. However, you'll note that I'm constantly drawing its main characters! Namely Crystal Kerin, Skye Lord and Midnight Star, they'd be the major ones. As I get more art done you'll finally see the designs for the other 3 mains, as well as the other 6 cool characters.
I had exams. They were boring. I brought my laptop to my IT exam. I played Minecraft during the exam. That was pretty fun, ngl.
Now, to recent events! So, I'm back into homestuck, since the gigapause ended and all and I'm having all my feels again. I technically never got out of it, but now we're here and we're crying. But the fun thing that comes out of this is, it's giving me a lot of creative possibilities. As of now, I'm very much so considering making a fanventure, with my EC kids, as I call them. It wouldn't be a forum adventure, no. It wouldn't run on suggestions. It'd just be me, drawing art, writing, and hoping I don't burn out too hard. I'd be aiming for an update a week - should keep me relatively slow and steady. It probably won't be in the homestuck sprite style that my current deviations are, it will probably be more akin to 'hero mode'. Binary tool will be my saviour. It'll be fun. It probably won't start until Demcember 2nd. Work on it, that is. I want the complete the sburb sprite sets for all the 12 characters before I start on the actual thing. We'll see!
Also I got Omega Ruby, on release day, I am in love, it's fabulous.
That's probably all for now. Will post more if more fun things happen. I hope to be a little more active - though I'm pretty sure I said this last time in my journal, too!
Lol what is brevity
