My art class is pretty cool. Essentially, there's maybe thirty minutes of instruction and then we're unleashed to go out and draw for maybe three hours. ^_^ It's pretty nice. I get to be outside in the warm sun and enjoy myself a bit. The first medium we're working with is charcol on newsprint. I don't like using charcol. ;_; OK, so maybe it's because I'm not used to it, but I find it kinda hard to make thinner lines and to shade with any sort of fine color graduation. -_- We're not going to move onto another medium for another week or two, so I guess I'll just have to get used to it. As for what pieces we're doing, we're just taking it easy and working on things like proportion and composition. Next week we're going onto perspective and um... more on composition I think.... I'm looking forward to that perspective stuff. I've realized that perspective is one of my really weak points.

Oh, socio is as easy as I thought it would be. Wee! XD

Yesterday I took my friend over to Fry's Electronics to look at video cards. I want one now. ;_; The Radeon 9800 Pro looks awful nice. Ohhohohoho! XD Here I am, stuck with a GeForce4 MX420. ;_; Doesn't look like I'll have a substantial amount of money anytime soon either. ;_; Oh well, at least I don't do gaming on this rig. Sure, it'd be nice for designing, but I can make due with what I have.

Oh, happy fourth of July everyone! ^_^ How is everyone spending the day? I personally don't really think much of the holiday (why should I really give a darn?), but around this time of year, there're a lot of sales on BBQ items, so we did some grilling today. XD My sister and I made sishkabob. It was yummy. ^_^ Then after that, my dad foisted some beef on us to grill too because he was lazy. -_- Oh well, I don't do enough grilling. It's a man's job! Meat. Put on fire. Cook. XD

That's about it for now. But before I go, let me advertise Hana's new Guilty Gear X log crew. It's spifftacular. Go join. Although I haven't put it up on the sidebar yet (I'm a friggin' lazy bum), I called May. May r0x0rz. Fear the anchor! XD
