WTF??? When the hell did they change the journal format? Sheesh...
So its about time I update this thing (Im sick of looking at such a negative journal).
Im in a nice state of excitement right now. My work gives out these things called Trio Awards for when we meet or exceed goals and such. What they are is basically they have a money value that you redeem on a website and can get gift cards from a number of places. Ive collected a decent handful of these since they started doing it and finally decided I should put some of them to use. So I redeemed a couple of them, and ordered some stuff from amazon.com. Of the items I ordered, the one Im the most excited to get is
^.^ Yep. I ordered myself a tablet. Ive been debating for some time now whether or not I wanted a tablet. I never saw a real reason for me to have once, since I dont plan on making a career out of my art (like I could). But Ive been drawing a lot lately (Much to mothers annoyance. She says I should be writing, not drawing. Which
well shes right I should, but thats beside the point >.>) and have been getting frustrated when I color my drawings because I cant do the shading properly either because I dont have the proper colors, or dont know how. Will a tablet make that easier? Beats the hell out of me. Quite frankly I could end up getting even more annoyed. I know its gonna take time before I get the hang of using not only the table, but photoshop. Oh got photoshop
Learning how to use that is going to be the biggest headache
I got it off a friend with the intention of using it to make like, sig banners and stuff. But theres so many different buttons and functions and god knows what else that I never used it and resorted to paint. >.> So its just been sitting lonely and forgotten on my laptop (for shame I know).
Either way, as big a pain as its gonna be learning to use the thing, Im still excited to get it. Im working on a simple picture now that I plan on coloring using the tablet. Thats gonna be interesting
Also might try and fix a picture I was working on that got messed up in the inking process
(stupid pen). I'm really hoping I can fix it on the computer cause if I have to redraw this picture I'll scream...
On another note, thanks to my roommates I am now obsessed with Yu Yu Hakusho. ^.^ I have this one song on my phone called Wild Wind that's sung by Kurama and Hiei that I don't even know how many times I've listened to. It's a good song. ^.^ But anyway, assuming I don't get distracted by something shiny you'll be seeing some Yu Yu Hakusho inspired art at some point.
And... That's all the exciting news I have for now. I lead such a dull life... -.- Oh well. Ja!
