I am the worst.

This was pretty much directly inspired by a rather... well, crackily-awesome typo in my monster tag over at T9, where I mistakenly wrote "radioactive ham" when I meant to write "radioactive man." So... yeah. Terry fighting a giant radioactive ham. I just couldn't resist.

Normally I hate posting twice in one day, but I just have to mention this.

My parents got me a new tablet. Shiny new Intuos 4. I was just playing around with it, and started work on inking something I scanned before I came home. Check this out:

That was done with only a 7px hard black brush. Now, I'm one of those people that believes that tools alone cannot make good art. But really? This is amazing. My old Graphire could never do this. I am stunned. Also, the stylus came with multiple nibs, which create different textures. Haven't figured out how to change them out yet, but that's pretty neat. This tablet is the closest a tablet has ever felt to drawing with pencil and paper to me. Just. Wow. Thank you so much, mom and dad.

Also, I have to name her. My old tablet was named Larry. I'm thinking of Guinevere for this new one.

Painting-doodle of Amred to try and work out some artist's block.

Rant about my hate for a certain person )

So, it my last post, I sort of mentioned allergies. Well, lately, the burning eyes feeling has gone away. However the sneezing is still there. Today, I must have had at least five sneezing fits.

Also, on Monday, I had a really bad nose bleed. I was walking home, and was about two blocks away, and my nose just started dripping blood. I really couldn't do anything - there was no one around to help, and I didn't have any tissue. So I just sort of stood on the sidewalk, leaned forward a bit, and let it bleed. I was pretty much gushing blood for two minutes, then it slowed down, and I rushed home. I looked like I'd just killed someone, there was that much blood on my hands. And my left nostril oozed blood a bit for about ten minutes after the initial bleed. And since I'm still sneezing like mad, I'm really thinking I should consult a doctor.

Trying to work out how the DEC sleep. They couldn't sleep on their backs, because their tail would get in the way. But they're bipedal, so I don't really see them curling up like an animal. So, I'm thinking they sleep on their stomachs. This particular DEC is Z5. (Who I am trying to app in T9)

There was some angst here, but I deleted it. :B

On a lighter note, my english teacher keeps singing Dr. Horrible songs during class. :D Best teacher I've ever had, I swear.

Also, I think I've developed an allergy to mold. Earlier this year, in late winter, I was sneezing a lot and had dry eyes. Now, I'm also sneezing a lot, and it feels like my eyes aren't even producing tears right. Both times it's been when right after heavy snow/rain. I've never had any sinus allergies before (though, I have a skin allergy to nickel, like most all humans, and I can't do woodshop working with soft woods like mahogany, because it gives me a bad rash) so I'm not sure what to do. If I can avoid taking medication, I will, because I don't really like pills. But, it is kind of annoying.

Doodle of Cy-T. Trying some new stuff out in photoshop.

So, I've been doing a lot of working out this week. Yard work with the pulaski, tai chi, and kung fu. Not to mention I got a really painful vaccination yesterday. All together, my arms and abs are killing me. But that's a good sign, right?

The slow posting in Trans 9 is driving me nuts. I love the game, but god is it annoying waiting for a mod. That's why I never start rps that depend on a sort of 'mod orientation' thread. But it's always hard trying to catch the attention of a mod that's working with, like, ten other people when you show up.

I finally got riolu in pokemon diamond. When I was first in Canalave, I didn't realize that Iron Island went deeper, so I just left after, like, the second room. So I got all the way to Sunnyshore before looking online and seeing that you get the riolu egg at Iron Island. So I back tracked and went through the whole thing and got the egg. I really do like riolu and lucario, but the only way to include it on my team is to get rid of my lopunny. And my lopunny's been with me forever. So... I dunno. I think I'll use it when just wandering around in the wild, and use lopunny in gym battles. I also caught Dialga a few days ago. It was pretty sweet - I caught it on the second ball toss, with an ultra ball. That's a first.

I'm going to a dragon boat race tomorrow. That'll be fun.

And the winning five are... )

And secondly, the big project revealed!


A 1950's milk can, painted with a garden scene, for my sister. You can see some other shots of it here.

So, I had this big thing about my weekend typed up, and I was going to post pictures of the big project I've vaguely mentioned... but the weekend report sounded whiney and my digital camera wouldn't connect to the computer. So instead you get some more Tegaki noodlings. I showed this to a friend, and they asked me why I felt the need to make The Doctor pink.'s... not the Doctor, really. It just... looks like him.

Okay, so... Hancock is a good, solid, original movie. I really liked it. It was serious, but with just enough comedy to keep it from being a downer. I liked it.

Also, if a theatre near you is playing it, or you can find it online/in a store, I greatly recommend The Fall. Imagine Baron Munchausen if Guillermo del Toro had directed it. Beautiful cinematography, brilliant story. See it if you can.

Okay, so, list of things I need to post here;
- the Big Project
- Scarlet character meme
- pokemon diamond doodles

Fuck you, CS3, with your stupidly complicated interface and fucked up undo hot key. Elements is better. BUT I STILL BEAT YOU. HA!

...drawn at work. Which is more awesome then I could have ever imagined. Guys, if you ever get a chance to work with Google, take it. It is... just... wow. The office I'm interning at has a pool table, rock wall, and game consoles right inside the main door. There's this incredible free buffet for lunch. You can get snacks whenever you want. You can get booze whenever you want. It is incredible. (And the work is fun, too. ;p) I'm sad I'm only going to be here a week.

Okay, enough rambling about my internship. I'm working on a picture of my Ruby team similar to my Crystal team picture, so keep an eye out for that. And I'm still going to post the models from work, but I want to post them all together, so those'll probably go up around the weekend.

Also, meme yanked from Tochi )

Based of an IM conversation very late last night. I think I'm going insane.

My dad's been importing all of his CDs onto our computer. Our computer... cannot take so many CDs in a week. The box is making funny noises a lot, and that is not good.

I start a two week long internship on Tuesday, so yay.

EDIT: Also, meme from Tochi. Reply askin' for questions, and I shall interview yoooou
Ask me deh questions... )

Quick painting of an aemperial engine from the AegBalk rp. These are pretty much the best of the best as far as engines go, and are made special by the government. Ships that are not made by the government usually have similar engines, but no where near as nice. (Quick painting. Rather shoddy, I know, I just wanted to get it out of my system)

My office chair broke! D: I'm using a spare chair, but it has no arm rests, so balancing my tablet is really difficult. See, I have to hold my tablet at an angle so I don't strain my wrists as much. Usually, I lay it at the edge of the desk and balance it with the arm rests, and now that I have none, it's... difficult. Blah.

Took the SAT today. Four and a half hours. Oh god.

Tegaki is weird, but kind of interesting. So, I drew a Mwrr.

I can has progress? Evidentially, I can. Four years... that's a long time to be working on stuff.

Took the AP history test yesterday. Eeeh, it was okay. Also took the astronomy final on Thursday, and I'm confidant I passed that. I need to work on my Lit final, and my math final is next monday. My french final will include camcorders and jedi, so I look forward to that, and need to get working on it. No idea about my web design, art, or physics finals. Hmm.

Guys. Guys. Guys. Guys. Guys.

Holy shit, I am so worked up on painkillers you wouldn't believe it, hurrr. :B I like me some midol teen.

And I made these freaking adorable pokemon wall hangers out of some scraps of watercolor paper I had nothing else to do with;

Oh my god, I'm hyper. And happy. And I spiked my hair today and it looks coooool, and people are even more confused about my gender then ever, which is awesome, and I might get free dinner tomorrow and ho shit, run on sentence.

And in case you didn't notice, I changed my default icon. It's the same basic thing, but since I cut my hair and don't have my 'rabbi curls' (as one person once put it) I wanted to keep my icon updated.

I fucking love painkillers, I swear to god. Everything is all awesome and great and oh man. Painkillers. <3

So, I finally got to go use the gift card I got for my birthday. I got some nice watercolor paper, a new pencil sharpener, a new gum eraser, and some nice wood pencils. I still have about twenty dollars on the card, too. I'm considering investing in some copic markers, as another attempt to broaden my scope of mediums. Any suggestions? Is there a better brand, or a cheaper one that's good for beginners? Any nice tutorials around?

I picked up a Korean comic today at a book store. 'A Thousand and One Nights' - basically a re-imagining of the classic story. The art is similar to Japanese Anime, but with some slight differences. The story is rather intriguing so far, and the amount of detail, both cultural and artistic, is stunning.

Oh yeah, I also got some cute dinosaur stickers at the art store. They now decorate my sketchbook and cell phone.

Sooooo.... I was messing around with acrylics last night.

See the extent of my poor skills )

Also... I think my boyfriend and my friend D have given me two different colds which has mutated into one mega cold. Blarg.
