hey guys!! I’m sorry for not being able to be as active as I was last year, but I’ve been so busy with school and the such that it’s been hard to even upload once a week! I might upload some traditional sketch dumps soon, I’m improving so much, but it doesn’t really show up in my digital art for some reason. Traditional art seems to be easiest for me, I have no clue as to why that is. My oldest brother is home from Texas for Thanksgiving, so I’ll be out and about with him everywhere over my Thanksgiving break, with (probably) little time to draw. A bunch of stupid, personal junk has been going on in my life, too, which has been affecting my appetite to draw. Recently, my confidence in my art has been at an all time high, but then, I looked through deviantART, and bam, no more confidence. Looking at everyone’s art makes me feel really bad about myself. I always compare other’s art to mine, and it just makes me feel horrible. Me and my mom haven’t exactly been on good terms recently (or ever), either. The confidence problem isn’t just with my art. It’s with myself. I compare myself to everyone, even my closest of friends. I can’t help it. I just can’t help it, I’ve tried not to hate myself, but I just end up hating myself for hating myself!
I’ve taken a strong interest in Neutral Milk Hotel recently, and I’m completely in love with them and Jeff Mangum. I started taking a Spanish class this year (it’s actually easier than I thought it would be!) and in a presentation about myself, one of the slides stated that I like music, and on the slide it had a picture of the album, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea. I didn’t think anyone would recognize the indie album cover art, but my Spanish teacher said, “Oh, Neutral Milk Hotel, huh? I have the vinyl and the album at home.” And a week or two later, he gave me his CD of the album! Before, I only had it on my computer, but now I have the CD! I think I might ask for a Neutral Milk Hotel poster for Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas, is anyone interested in doing a Christmas-themed art trade or collab?
I’ve been listening to a lot of Welcome to Night Vale, recently. I’ve only just finished episode 14, but it’s really interesting. I really like the music they choose for the weather.
Anyone up for exchanging 3DS Friend Codes? Mine’s 1246-8858-1947, if you wanna play Animal Crossing: New Leaf, note me your Friend Code! Though, keep in mind that I might not add you if I don’t know you too well, dears. I just LOVE New Leaf. I’ve had it since July and it’s just amazing. I finally got the gold watering can last week! I have ten badges (kind of pitiful for having the game for five months, I know) and three rooms. I have every fruit (local and tropical) in my town, bamboo, and every shop opened except GracieGrace and the fortune telling shop. I don’t have Pokemon X/Y yet, because I haven’t had time to get it, but I’m planning on getting X if I get the opportunity.
Also, did anyone else tune in to the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Season Premiere? It wasn’t as good as I thought it was going to be, but it was still amazing. I was really happy to see Rose, again. Clara is a good companion, too, though. “Will you ever be able to just walk past a fez?”
