It was a rainy day and I saw a pile of my own textures haven’t been used yet so I used them all up to purge my texture cravings.
The weather in Manila echoes my mood swings and has decided to switch things up from excruciating heat to the finest weather for snuggling and I still haven’t decided which one makes me less miserable. I might prefer lying in my own sweat over being constantly reminded of how lonely gloomy skies make me feel.
(We ordered pizza so I feel better now).
I’ve made it! I’ve graduated from the University of the Philippines at last! After going through different phases of feeling both indestructible and totally doomed at the same time, the dust is starting to settle enough for me to go and make things like I had promised. Though maybe the red/greenish color scheme of this piece might have been a result of unconscious school pride.
After swearing off digital painting in my last attempt, I was inspired by not-being-bothered-enough-to-find-my-ink-and-paper to pick up my Intuos and give this medium another shot. Maybe once I find a way to this a lot faster, I’d do it more often.
How about some late night motivational posters instead of your usual blend of thesis-related panic?
There’s a hunger in my belly which can only mean I’m craving me some Looking For Alaska by John Green. I love lending that book out to anyone who asks, but now I’m not quite sure where it is anymore. As for the line, I’m pretty sure this is a pretty paraphrase of a quote from that novel (and the fact I can’t double check to find out what the actual line said is driving me insane, guys).
I’ve been going through some tough days, mostly being bogged down with regret and my unmatched ability to blame myself for every shitty thing that has happened. This line offers me some comfort so I made a little thing for my heart feelings. I hope it helps someone else out there too :)
I’ve owned a graphics tablet for maybe 8 years now, but I just never warmed up to it. I didn’t enjoy practicing painting with it and I just never took the time to improve. Now, I had to finish a thing in 6 hours and ended up with this. Not having a scanner, I couldn’t do inks or pencils by hand (Which I love!), so I kinda… dropped the ball and did a cop out piece. I’m terribly unhappy with the result, so I’m no longer submitting it in as planned. :(
But I can’t be too sad, because I was still forced to get up and do something after all.
Here’s to a more productive 2013 :)
