Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Self-taught artist here!

I fancy myself an artist, but in actuality I'm not so good at all.

I desire to be a good artist, because a good piece of art has a certain kind of mysticism to it. You know how a slightly misdrawn stroke can have a huge impact on the personality of a character? How random, squiggles orientated in different directions can become a picture of a barn in the countryside? It is intriguing how everything comes together because of deliberate lines placed onto a canvas.

Favourite Styles of Art
Low Poly 3D Cartoon - Clean mesh, thrifty vertex placement and not more than a color map.

Anime Digital Art - Proportioned character line art. Open to any colouring style.

Cartoony Vector Art - Heavily lined with simple shapes and color shades.

Environment Sketch - Broad yet detailed. Simple fine strokes that either range from the orderly urban perspective sketches, or the messy and organic landscape sketches

Wacom Bamboo - Awesome entry-level tablet.
Photoshop - Out of habit and is an industry standard.
openCanvas - Brush and watercolor engine is superb!
Blender - 3D modelling and animation tool

Oh lookie, an opportunity for a nice journal skin!

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 7, 2014, 7:09 AM
  • Mood: Euphoric
  • Listening to: Secret Base - Anohana
  • Reading: Gin no Saji, Nanatsu no Taiza, UQ Holder
  • Watching: JoJo, Fairy Tail
  • Playing: Yume Sekai - Sword Art Online
The last time I wrote a journal entry was in 2011. WHOA! It's 2014 now! And both times, it was only because there was PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP DAY that I wrote a journal lol.

So nostalgic.
My music was Tsuyogari from Beelzebub ... ages since the anime ended. In a 'meh' way.
I was reading Gin no Saji by FMA legend Hiromu Arakawa - the thing's still continuing, going strong, and a perfect classic in my opinion.
Watching Fairy Tail, One Piece, Gintama, Toriko, Beelzebub... All of them except One Piece had ended. Fairy Tail in fact even ended AND restarted just a few days ago. One Piece, Gintama, Toriko and Beelzebub weren't so good, I think I dropped them in 2012 or early 2013.


Artistically I haven't made significant strides. Life took a vastly different direction in the last 1.5 years, when I fully embraced my other interests and went on a crazy trip through school life. Go out with a bang, like they said.

But I'm graduating now. Things are being wrapped up, responsibilities ceded, the limelight over. I'll need some time to readjust to the transition, and perhaps some re-balancing of how my hobbies/interests are weighted right now. After all, one of my hobbies turned professional-level, while another took a moonshot.

Art is definitely staying. But I need to think about what direction I want to take it to - what do I want to draw? Or perhaps I should leave it untainted as the random outlet of excess creative energy, drawing whatever subject comes to mind lol.
