Thought I'd just point out a couple of things that I personally think could have made the piece just that wee bit better. First of all ...

.: Shantae - Happy Birthday Tareq :.
Decided to draw my very lovely friend Tareq a pic of the one and only Shantae for his birthday, seeing as he's a big fan of the franchise.

I’m feeling pretty glum right now… and when I feel glum I like to write about it. Because sometimes it makes me feel better…

IDK I guess I just feel quite lonely really. I’ve grown apart from alot of my old friends (and just plain lost others), both recently and in the last year…

…see, where I was living before there were people about I would chat to. I didn’t have too much in common with them, but they kept me company all the same. And they took my mind off the emptiness I suppose…

And it’s not like it would be easy to just start going out more and meeting new people. It only just dawned on me this week how much I’m going to have to pay in bills. From now on I will only be left with between £40-50 per week to spend on food and other bits. That sucks =( I don’t know how I will manage…

My mum’s been helping me out with money abit. But she lives in the Eurozone, and the exchange rate between the Euro and the sterling pound (the currency where I live) is meant to be very poor. So its been costing her a fortune to send me money…

I don’t know. I’ve been acting really bitter lately, feeling really insecure about myself and about other people, letting things get to me a lot. I don’t like myself when I’m like that. I want to go back to being a more carefree me again…

And I really need to start earning money again somehow…

Ok, so here are some things I would like to accomplish by the time I next post on here :

- Start earning money again
- Get a new hobby (possibly take a college course or something)

Actually… probably just that really. Once that happens a lot of goodness will flow from it… It would be nice to meet some local friends it doesn’t cost me a fortune to go and see…

IDK. Maybe I’m just lamenting because I’m in a period of re-adjustment right now. I have a new flat, which is an amazing thing ofcourse and I’m very lucky. But its all mine and it takes time to get used to all the various responsibilities (mainly the aforementioned bills =P). I also have proper internet for the first time in two years. Atfirst it felt amazing ; like Christmas! Now I feel over-whelmed, however… I have A LOT of lost time to make up for… Doesn’t help that I’m competitive either ; things have changed so much recently. So, so much… I wish I was in a better position to keep up with it all…

Maybe I just need to chill the fuck out… Make a list of the stuff I need to do, put down my head and work through it… yea maybe that’s it…

 

Aside from that things are good! As stated I have a new flat ^^. My mum’ currently staying over and she’s been helping me a lot. She even put up some curtains for me, which was most kind.  I have a new laptop, thanks to my wonderful friend Mike. I’ve also started playing Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate =D

Here's a pic long-owed to Alex White (sorry for taking so long!). I sorta kinda owed him one... a significant one... And when I offered to draw him a pic of his fave Sonic character to make up for my daftness and he accepted I was extremely pleased. Thank you for being so understanding Alex! Let's never mention that incident again, hah!!

So this pic was originally sketched as part of a series of rough sketches I created during a Counselling Studies class. While the teacher was talking. It was when I felt most creative!

I knew as soon as I'd finished the sketch, however, that this would be the one I'd persevere with. Sadly shit has hit the fan in my personal life, and a very kind friend of mine is currently looking after my netbook + Wacom Bamboo. Which is amazing and I'm incredibly grateful! Did think my digital art creation days were temporarily on hiatus though. And in a sense they very much have been. However! When visiting a Pound shop in Wood Green last week I saw an Android/iOS stylus set. One of which was way more dinky than a so-called 'art stylus' (called Kuel 2000 or some crap) I stupidly bought a year ago. This dinky stylus is waaay more useful! Don't get me wrong, it's still not the pinprick accuracy us artists crave (which makes me sad that I don't get on better with Colors 3D, because the 3DS stylus is much closer to a real sharp pencil than any stylus compatible with my Nexus 7 ever will be...). So I bought it. I spent that pound!!!! And it was super worth it <3

I'm happy with this piece. Yes it's not perfect, but I'm a lazy Sagittarian artist, rarely anything people like me produce ever is! I suppose we're just not all that meticulous with finer details.... For example ; I went over the line-art on the hand closer to the camera on my tablet software after colouring. Which is super obvious. And I tried to hide it to some extent, and managed to. But overall the job just proved too much effort! So I abandoned it...

I'm proud of this in any case! And hope people like =D

Hi, I have an idea for the next meetup about something to do. Can we play a guessing game? Like in the game, everyone is a sonic character and we have a to guess who we are? Something to pass the time. I'll bring some sticky notes too.
