Long time no see!
Didn't expect to go on a hiatus, but it happened again.. ah well. Sorry ._. I've technically been back on deviantART for a few months now, but I've just been browsing and faving for the most part. However, for the first time, I've been able to support some of my favourite artists in a way not limited to comments and
s- I've bought artbooks from
, and the first volume of
's webcomic-manga, Carciphona (I still think of it as Blackbird, but I like the new name too). Just waiting for *cartoongirl7
's artbook to arrive now.
I've started my second semester of university.. Law/Arts degree. Law is generally dull, dense, difficult, time-consuming, and the atmosphere is competitive and not very friendly. Apparently 1 in 3 law students/practicioners have clinical depression
. I'm not surprised. Right now I'm majoring in Japanese and Geography for my arts degree, but I think I'm going to drop Japanese or change it to Psychology or Chinese or something. I like it, and it's easier than everything else, but I feel like I should be doing something more useful.. I would've preferred to do Environmental Management/Law but they don't have that dual degree anymore
so Geography is about as close as I can get. Or maybe I should do Law/Science.. on the other hand, maybe I should just do easy stuff for arts because it'll help me retain whatever sanity I have left while doing law. Or just not do law. -sigh-
My goal is to help the environment and wildlife as much as I can. But, I still don't know exactly what I want to do.. as long as it's in line with my passion. I might write more about why I chose Law some other time.
Well, a lot of other stuff has happened since my last journal post. Hmm. Most of it just makes me sad, but there's been some good things.. uni is not one of them, obviously. I don't want to write a thoroughly depressing journal, however, so I'm not going to mention most of it. Okay.. art-related stuff!
My art style has changed quite a bit since my last upload, hopefully for the better. But I'm reluctant to put new pieces online. I don't think my paranoria is unreasonable, looking at all the art theft and even identity theft going on around, even here, on this supposed safe haven for artists, and general lack of respect to artists by most internet users. I need to think about it more :< why did it turn gloomy I don't even
Uhh.. my scanner doesn't work, and the CD drive doesn't work on my desktop computer, which is where my Photoshop and OpenCanvas are, so I can't use my tablet. I haven't used it since last year ;_;. My art block has been less severe, but now I'm really busy with uni and stuff T.T. But I've been drawing with traditional media, things I owe people and some random sketches. This journal entry sounds even more boring when it's typed out, lol =_=.
Yeah.. sorry for the boring read, if you've actually gotten this far (good job if you have!). I wanna use these premium features while I can, hopefully without annoying too many people. (happy birthday deviantART!)
Does anyone else recognise this design and also feel the need to
? Yay Animal Crossing!! This is one of my favourite stationeries *w* thankyou to ~Hadeki
for this awesome journal skin!
Because I've wanted to do this for agess T.T here are some artworks and artists that deserve more attention!
