Mood: Extremely cross
I drew Noland because he is a whiny-butt, which I will also be for the time being.
I dropped my tablet pen on the floor a couple hours ago by accident. AND NOW IT DOESN'T WORK.
I'm so upset right now because it was working this morning, so I feel as if it should still work; and because I need to finish a commission for a friend, which I can't do now. Moreover, the tablet pens for the tablet model I have are nearly $50. I could replace it, but it feels too pricey for just a pen. I haven't searched for pen compatibility with other Wacom tablets, yet. Maybe a cheaper pen will still work on my tablet.
The eraser side still works, so maybe I can get used to using that. I just hate using that side, though, because I feel like it's scraping my tablet's surface when I'm using it.
I'll try to fix it tomorrow, or something. There are some tutorials online on how to fix it yourself. I feel like I may just break it, but since it's already broken I really have nothing to lose. :T
HOPEFULLY, I FIX IT.
Edit: I sort of fixed it! 8D; The pen works and the pressure sensitivity seems fine, but I can't use the right click button on the top of it anymore. (It's the button labeled #3 in this image.) I actually use that button a lot because it's a shortcut for the eye-drop tool on SAI, but I can just do that manually. SO WHATEVZ!
I still think I might want to buy a new pen, because I've dropped this one on the ground a lot... so who knows how broken it really is. But $50... I'll hold out for a little longer. xD;
Mood: Mildly sleepy
After tonight, my respect for Gabe's "special talent" of hairstyling has increased a great amount. (Also, I just went back and looked at Gabe's profile... why did I put "being a TOTAL CREEP" as a special talent? xDD)
Since I haven't updated this world in a while, I haven't had the chance to tell you guys that I'm working on a Vanity Fanfare cosplay for Katsucon! :D I'm reeeally close to being done; I just have to do the wings. I did the shirt over winter break, and already own a pair of jeans and boots. I also bought a wig and goggles over break. My mom sent me the wig from her house so I could style it. :V Which is what I did today!
And my experience with styling is why I have developed this respect for Gabe. HAIRSTYLING IS SO HARD, MAN! HOW IS IT EVEN POSSIBLE... Props to you, Gabriel. :V /talking to no one
I've always kind of wanted to try cutting hair, though, so I'm glad I decided to do this. xD;
ANYWAYS, yeah. Styling a wig. As you know, Vanity Fanfare kind of is bald on half of her head... whichhhh isn't really possible with a wig, so I did the only other thing I could think of. I decided to buy a two-toned wig, and cut the darker half really short. Here's the wig I bought:
Awwww, yeah. I tried to cut most of the black off so it looked like a short hairstyle. HERE'S THE RESULTS........
This is the white side, which I didn't do anything to. And...
BAM SHORT. Also, my eye is really freaky in this picture. Sorry about that. Oh, and if you look closely, you'll notice that Stefan lives on my wall.
BUT YOU KNOW, I HAD SUCH A HARD TIME WITH THIS. I was really scared to start at first because I didn't know what to do, but in the end I guess it came out decent. xD; I tried... really hard... and... things...........
And so there's that. On an unrelated note, I just finished watching Princess Jellyfish! :D IT'S REALLY GOOD! But rather PG-13 near the 2nd half. Nothing raunchy shown, just mildly raunchy conversation. Still, it was really good!! AND ONLY 11 EPISODES WHAT THE HEY. I want... a season 2... "orz At least the manga's there. I'll start reading that now, I guess. :9
Another anime I watched recently is that Madoka Magica thing! I was also happily surprised at how good it was, so that's also a good short watch if you haven't watched it yet. :V Though it's pretty grungy, especially compared to Princess Jellyfish. BUT STILL. NICE STORY, COOL CHARACTERS, YEAH.
Uuuummemmememmemem.... yeah, it's late here. I might go to bed now. NIGHT, GUYS! :D
Mood: Full of Ramen
Idk, I'm livestreaming! Because I don't know what else to do!
I kind of want to draw clothes. Come and keep me company, if you want! 8D; Or you can request a character (preferably an OC) for me to draw and the style of clothing, and I'll try to design some clothes for them. :)
Mood: Moof. (Actually, I'm slightly tired. But I typed "moof" instead of "mood" at first, so...)
Currently working on: Revising part 2 of this, writing my post for the MCC, probably working on commissions, maybe my art summary (though I think it's a little early for that yet)
Happy Saturday, everyone! :) I have a question for yooooooou. I remembered that some years ago that I wanted to do a "Fashion Design world," and a couple of you said that'd be an interesting idea. The idea was that I and other guest posters would post fashion designs and things to the world, and people who want to use the designs could draw them on their characters so long as they credit the original designer. Then I thought we could have like, theme months and things like that, where people post designs based on a particular theme. Idk. SOMETHING LIKE THAT. POSTING CLOTHING DESIGNS AND LETTING PEOPLE USE THEM. I can only make one more world, so I'm thinking I want to use it to make that fashion world.
IDK, I THOUGHT IT'D BE FUN...! I would have a lot of fun with this world because I love drawing random clothes on my characters. I also notice that some people have trouble coming up with clothes for their characters to wear in pictures, so it'd be helpful for those people too.
So my question is this: If I decide to make the world, is there anyone who's interested in joining? xD;; If no one really wants to join, I probably won't make the world.
So uh.. yeah. That's that.
In other unrelated news, the semester is almost over! Or it technically already is. I have two more finals to go. :V SO YEAH! ALMOST WINTER BREAK!! 8) This school year has been pretty decent so far, so I hope next semester is as good as this one was... :,D
By the way, I forgot to tell you guys that I do commissions in real life, now! 8D; Sort of. I've sold a total of ~*~ONE~*~ commission, but I have 3 (1 for one person, 2 for another) more that I need to work on. SO THAT'S INTERESTING... I still need to figure out where I can print digital art. DOES ANYONE KNOW? I hear Walgreens is okay, but the colors turn out odd. SOMEONE! BRIEF ME ON PRINTING POSTERS! ;U; Please. xD;;;
Also, I'm not opening commissions online yet because I don't have a paypal/etc, and I don't really know if anyone's interested. xD WE'LL SEE, SOMETIME...
And um... yep. That's all. :D HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.
Currently working on: MY ESSAY.
WHOA, IS IT ALREADY DECEMBER? How did that happen. Anyway, here's my SS Wishlist! :D This'll probably be in order of preference, but don't feel obligated to chose the first thing on the list. I like all of these things! C:
1) Any of my OCs, who you can find in my Various Planning world, but my favorites right now are probably Stefan and Gabe. (You can read their shorter character profiles here and here.) I also like stuff with really stupid and corny romance between them... haha;; But if bl isn't your thing, you can draw one of them individually, or draw them together in a non-romantic way. 8D If you draw one of them, I'd probably maybe prefer Gabe over Stefan...? Mostly because I haven't gotten a lot of fan art of Gabe. (Probably since his hair is so weird...) I really like Stefan too, so if you draw him by himself, that'll be cool too. :D (But I'd much prefer a drawing of the two of them together, even if it's not romantic. ;u;)
2) I remembered that Star Trek is a thing that I like, so maybe Spock, Kirk, and McCoy? You don't have to draw all three of them togther, but LOOK, THEY WERE SUCH BEST FRIENDS!! If you don't want to draw all three of them, I'd prefer Kirk and Spock, or any of the three individually. Oh, and I like the TOS actors over the reboot actors... so if you draw Kirk, can you draw him with Shatner's hairstyle instead of Chris Pine's hairstyle? Yeah.
S-SORRY FOR ALL THE WEIRD SPECIFICS GAAAHHH!!!
Also I'm kind of a fan of k/s just gonna put that out there.
3) I also remembered that Tiger and Bunny is another thing I like, so if you drew Barnaby and Kotetsu, that'd be wicked cool too. :D I also think Barnaby is pretty cool without his jacket. And his glasses.
Even though I'm saying lots about Barnaby, Kotetsu's actually my favorite. So if you were to draw just one of them, I'd prefer Kotetsu. But Barnaby's a close second, so I wouldn't be disappointed if you drew him, either. :D
(I-I really like these guys because they're pretty much Stefan and Gabe in disguise...)
4) Basil from Harvest Moon: Magical Melody/Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town!
5) And lastly, the ever obligatory Marth and Roy request! I still like these guys. xD If you draw them in armor, I like Marth's SSBB design and Roy's SSBM design best. (Those are the outfits I linked to.) If that doesn't work for you, you can draw them in those school uniforms I used to always draw them in. Or even cuter, come up with some cool casual clothes yourself for them to wear!! :DDD
If you only want to draw one person, then I'd prefer Roy over Marth. ;o Because Roy's our boy, rite? Rite.
...OKAY, THAT'S MY WISHLIST! It's been a while since I've done one of these, so I hope there are enough options. xD; Or not too many... Sorry for the lack of girl options, too. .u.;;; Anyway, I hope one of these options interests you! Thanks you in advance, Secret Santa!!! :D
