This so far has been one of the hardest weeks in college thus far. Three tests (art, math, and hist) as well as a paper for Composition 101. Finally though I have finished all of the assignments and tests for this week, so I can actually settle down and write a journal thing and go to sleep right after.
First of all, there have been lots of influences recently that have been wanting me to get back into my comics. The main issue I had is that I don't have an art program to draw with anymore, seeing as Corel Painter Essentials 4 conked out on me, and I haven't bothered to fix it because I'm just fed up with it always doing stuff like this. But as I talk to more and more people about how I draw comics, I find it odd that I haven't actually drawn any comics officially and posted one in a long time. I'm really wanting to get back into it somehow, such as hopefully getting a new art software one way or another.
Another problem I'm having is setting up my tablet every time I want to draw. There are so many cords with the Cintiq 12WX and it's such a hassle to setup. I desperately want to upgrade to the Ciniq 13HD, but I don't have the money right now, or at least I need to sell my current tablet first if I'm wanting to get the newer model. I might eventually post it on ebay or something for about $700 or so....
I haven't taken any photos recently due to how busy I've been. This is also one of the reasons I want to get back into comics, because photography is just a small "fix" for my need to make art on a constant basis.
I also haven't been able to record any episodes with my friend TheGhost2 at all, in at least three weeks, let alone been hardly able to post anything recently. Pikmin 3 Episode 2 will not convert to the smaller format for some reason, so I might have to post the unedited version, which will take tons of bandwidth and hours. Our schedules just went out of sync is the thing, as my workdays got shifted around and the one day we had time to record got filled with work. Hopefully this winter break we will be able to record lots, and hopefully next semester we will have more time as well. I will be getting a new headset soon in the mail, and TheGhost2 has already bought one a small while ago, so we should be able to record PC gaming stuff very soon.
So anyways, that's why I haven't been very productive in the art world in basically all of the ways I can do art. Hopefully I can find some spare time to take photos, but I have no idea when, as papers and homework are really piling up as the semester is coming to a close (3 more weeks).
Now, I'm off to bed.
