07/09/2003 Archived Entry: "Charcoal Sucks"

You know what I've realized? Charcoal is not one of my favoriter mediums. -_- I don't know about you, but I find myself having a little trouble making the lines uniform in length and with shading in general. I suppose it's because I don't have any prior experience with it, but dang, it gets kinda annoying at times. After working with it for three days, I'm finally starting to get the fine pressure control required for shading, but I'm still having a little trouble making them lines uniform. Thin lines in charcoal suck. ;_; Instead, I've been making my lines thicker to make it easier for myself and to make it more stylistic. Yeah, I know it's cheating, but hell if I care. XD All in all though, drawing's going well. Everyone wants to see my drawings though. It's, like, so wrong. ;_; I shake my fist at ye who wish to gaze upon mine art! *shakes fist*

My grades for the last quarter were finally posted. I did better than I thought I would. Like, substantially better. WAAAA!!!!! I'm so happy!!! ;_; <-- tears of joy The daddy is not displeased. That's a good thing because he gets displeased easily. Go me. I rule. *does a little jig* XD

There was a response to my job hunt in the mail today. It's a postcard from Target. Below follows a transcript:
Just a fast, fun, and friendly card to let you know that we've reviewed your application. We'll contact you as soon as we have a position that matches your needs. In the meantime, we appreciate your interest in Target!
-Thank You, Team Relations
What a *cough* nice way to say "we don't need you." -_- Agh! I needs a job. I can't keep up my expensive life-style without a flow of income. I'm really hoping Toys R' Us calls. *crosses fingers*

There's a Sakura Taisen manga? I didn't know that until today, where I saw it for sale at Nikaku. I was taking the Hana out to have a happy time purchasing One Piece merchandise. ^_^ I don't blame her. I get rather giddy thinking about OP stuff myself. But the Sakura Taisen manga caught my eye first and thus, I purchased it. Besides, I was low on cash and could only really afford a single tankouban. ^_^; The manga be prettyful. Fujishima Kousuke art never ceases to amaze me. He makes such attractive female characters. The male characters look fine too, but who cares about them? XD Honestly, who reads Aa! Megami-sama to look at Keiichi? I rest my case. XD Anyway, it's a very fun book. Once again, it's a retelling of the story from the very beginning, but there're a few fun differences (not to be confused with bad differences such as in the TV series -_-). I have a feeling that I'll be collecting this series. ^_^ In addition to the nice art, the presentation is top-notch for a manga. The cover slip is all shiny. I like it. ^_^ It also comes with a sticker sheet. Interestingly enough, there are PS2 memory card stickers on it. Sweet! ^_^ When I got home, I promptly affixed the Kohran sticker onto my memory card. I be one happy camper. XD

Ne, you wanna take me to Hello Desserts to turn in my application? You could probably score one too....unless you don't like dessert shops.

Prettiful new layout... Nothing too spectacular or new but it still stands out on its own. The link colors are blinding me though... you should change it to a darker, purply color. Neon green... causing... seizures...
