Practice,practice,practice!!

So, yesterday I posted how I was looking at all those tutorials, well today in my Art Class we had to draw hands to the best of our ability. I tried drawing a realistic hand (or semi-realistic, me favorite style) but I couldn't do it. I dunno what was wrong with it, maybe it was too small....then again, I was using my hand (for reference), and my hands are small...O.o

So I went back on DA to find tutorials for hands, and in this one, the artist said that you should practice to all your might, draw as many hands as you can, use any references, then try it again without references. So I'll try that with everything, so I may not be posting for a while.

I also had Academic Team today, it was just a meeting. We got pizza, which was fun...>.> I miss my old friends, though one of my other friends joined. She likes manga...I think....but it's not the same!! TT.TT And my brother's there! That's the best part, but he's always putting me down...-.-;

Anyways, quick post before I go meditate and then go to bed! ^ ^

Where was I?

No, I wasn't overwhelmed with homework or anything, though I did have a lot...O.O But it was all RIDICULOUSLY easy...like 2+2=4...OWIE! Stupid mechanical pencil...I actually thought it was my tablet...but it doesn't have sharp edges...ANYWAYS. Where was I? In meh house. Doing what? Stuff on the computer. What stuff? Reading tutorials 'n stuff! ^ ^

I can't remember if I posted yesterday or not...O.o

I found TONS of good tutorials...but the cloud ones didn't help me! HOW DO YOU DRAW CLOUDS!?!? I don't get it, they say draw a rough outline, then Gaussian blur it, then make it a little more rougher, and then you have a cloud...well, what about those other cloud things? They're all powdery...do people expect us to know how to draw clouds? I don't even know how to draw a cloud traditionally...unless it's with COPICs...I could probably do that..

'nyways, lemme show you some of the ones I liked the most...as soon as my internet starts working...hrmmmm...LOOOOAAAADDDD!!!!

Interesting, indeed, though I've never actually read it! ^ ^;

Weeee!! best tutorial EVAR!! Well, that's because it was the best short film I've ever seen, and then a tutorial of it!? Omigosh!! Too awesome! ^ ^ Too much help from this! >.<

I looked at several more, but I didn't favorite them...-.-; Well, someday I'll try out those techniques....Someday...

Bye-bye! ^ ^

Can't remember...or think of one...

Okie! So...I'm kinda bored. Well, I'm drawing this picture that I'll try to make the best I can...Anyways, I can't think of a clothes design. I don't want it Lolita, but I don't know what else to make it...-.-; It's a happy picture, with no gothic lolita-ness...So I'll take the time to type random stuff while I think! ^ ^

Today I had Oh's for breakfast. That cereal is PAINFUL (painfully good). Every time I eat it my gums get ripped up, and they are ripped up right now and they still hurt even though I had that in the morning, and this is night! Oh's are really good, but they hurt like crazy. They're my favorite cereal though...TT.TT I had a soft potato fry thing...and that HURT! Also, I think it had pepper or something in it and I couldn't breathe because it was so spicy...I'm very sensitive to spicy foods...O.o

Also, if you didn't know, I LOVE Dark Stalkers! It's not really the story or anything, I just like the characters and the fighting gameplay. I should draw more Dark Stalkers characters...O.O In case you guys didn't know, Dark Stalkers is a video game with famous characters like Morrigan, the vampire, and Felicia, the cat girl. And my favorite part about that game is Dimitri's Midnight Bliss! ^ ^ Should be a meme or something...Midnight Bliss version of characters...I should make a challenge like that or something! ^ ^;

Oh! Midnight Bliss is an attack/move that Dimitri Maximoff does in the game. It makes the boys turn into pretty girls, and the girls become more...sexual? Like with me favorite character...Buletta, she gets older! ^ ^; Buletta is like little red riding hood with blonde hair and guns! ^ ^; OH! I found a video on youtube of Midnight Bliss on practically all the Dark Stalkers characters, a lot of them are funny:

The "Come on baby" gets annoying after a while...>.> Me favorite was Jedah's the really skinny guy with the black coat.

Okie...I's gonna go do something...>.>

OH!! Ai Takahashi's solo song:

It's sooo beautiful!! O.O Gives me so much inspiration...

Bye-bye!

Animation?

Okay, so I tried animating, my animation is crap (and very short) but tell me what ya think:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtSeNd8JV3I

I think I did pretty well for not having any animation program, but besides that I think it's terrible. I was going to make it longer, but I got bored and stopped...

In other news, I'm incredibly bored!! TT.TT And I was looking for something to watch on TV and I found Kamen Rider, which is Masked Rider in English. Kamen Rider is a Japanese TV show basically the same as Power Rangers, but this show was American and it was really crappy, so I didn't watch it. I just never knew there was an American version of Kamen Rider! O.O

Also, for that one animation thing, I'll probably do it, just not now, with the whole big animation. I chose to do 10nen Sakura, because that's a fun song and it's one of the only non-love oriented songs from AKB48...I just need to figure out how to color an animated drawing, and get better at animating, and figure out how to stop the video at the proper frame (I kinda skipped frames on that last one, that's why it's so choppy)...and how to draw more anime style with realistic figures...Besides that, I'll have to ask people if they'd like to have their characters in it and who they'd wanna be. I'm trying to figure out who is basically the heroine in this...Acchan or...umm...forgot her name, girl with black hair who kinda looks like Maimi...I was going to make one of them like the theO mascot...but I'm not sure which one has the most time on the camera....maybe Acchan...

The only problem about doing that video, is that the background and things are so detailed!! I'm only interested in the dancing and close-ups, not so much the story part...I mean when it comes to animating. It probably won't have a background...Maybe just some white or something.

Oi! I'ma gonna go draw something...or finish that project that my mom wants me to finish...-.-;

Omigosh!! Colbert!!

This is an episode of Stephen Colbert on Who's Line is it Anyway. It's HILARIOUS!! This is the funniest part, enjoy! ^ ^

Oh...today my stomach really hurts...so I didn't go to school because I was also very nervous. It was very painful during school, I felt like something was eating my insides, but my mom thinks I pulled a stomach muscle, so that's probably it.

Well, I'm gonna go try animate something!!

Egad! Short post!
