Update catch up!

So yes, I haven’t updated much this week but I’ve been so incredibly busy you have no idea. I also was quite sick for a few days and my headaches just didn’t allow me to sit infront of a screen for too long. But I’m back now aw yea, party!

Alright so first of all, I’ve finished reading The catcher in the rye and well, I didn’t really like it all that much. Honestly, the main character annoyed me more than entertain me. He mostly just hates, complains and calls everyone phonies during the whole book. At first it’s fine and it makes you realize, ok, the guy is definitely not with the mainstream crowd. But he never does anything else and complains about everyone and everything he sees. Halfway the book that gets really irritating. Besides that he has another annoying habit: telling stories that are completely irrelevant. He actually mentions that he himself likes to drift away from topics, but again, after a while I just started thinking, where is the writer going with this? It just made the character (whose a teenager) seem like an old man whose desperately trying to have conversations and brings up anything that comes to mind. Perhaps this was the point of the writer, but either way, it makes reading the book a let less enjoyable.  In the end I just felt meh about this book. Maybe I just don’t get it, but I wont be reading it again for a long time. As for the next next book I’ve started, that would be Paper Towns by John Green.

Artwise I’ve practiced a lot of full body sketches and I’m getting slowly, but surely, better. I’ve also done a couple of actual complete drawings which you’ll see at the end of the month in the sketchdump. I also felt like making something Majora’s Mask related, so have this. I’m quite happy with the result. Hands down the best game in the series still. I may make more of these if I get positive feedback, so it’s up to you!

What else? due to sickness i didn’t train for a few days but I’m getting back into groove again now. For Valentine I went out for dinner with Doro and we had a great time. We didn’t do anything more as I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s and I show her that I love her every day anyways, the woman knows! <3. Lastly, I’ve also been more active on my Tumblr again, so go check that out. I’m currently doing a 30 day Zelda question challenge. I would post these here, but I don’t want to make this a full out Zelda blog. Let me know your Tumblr if you have one too!

I got the whole next week off so you can expect lots of updates to make up of the lack before. And that’s all, so you all have a fine evening now =)

Figure Close Up – Day 7

And here we are on this dawn of the final day! I saved my favorite figures from my all time favorite game for last. Why yes, you get 2 for the price of one today, because these two just fit together perfectly.

It’s not straight away noticable, but sadly my Fierce Deity Link is missing a piece of his ear. Back when I bought it I made the mistake of not checking the box first, so when I opened it afterwards he was actually decapitated. Words still can’t express my rage when I saw it and I was really disappointed. Thankfully I did manage to glue the head back on properly with the correct materials, but that piece of ear was nowhere to be found. Still it currently stands as one of my favorite & biggest figures. The Skullkid figure however is in perfect state and you have no idea how glad I am to have it. Majora’s Mask honestly is my favorite out of all the Zelda games, and yes, that includes OoT or LttP, deal with it.

And that was the first out of 12 photo themes, I hope you liked this one and tips or ideas are always welcome for the future challenges.

I’ve also gone ahead and updated my goals. I know there’s still 2 days left till the month is over but I feel it’s more appropriate to do this every end of the week. I went this whole week with just water and 3 cups of coffee so that’s 1/4 for that challenge. I’m honestly craving for some Fanta right now so I don’t think I could keep going on water just alone, but I will try and make it a habit to drink more water than soda in the future. When it comes to reading I finished both Quidditch through the ages & Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them. Not particularly long books, but they count! Besides that just the usual stuff like exercising, drawing, etc. have all been done.

Things I’ve failed at so far are:

  • Running twice a month: Absolutely no running was done, but again, it’s freezing outside and I don’t feel like getting sick any time soon.
  • Do a video every month: I’ve had no idea about what to do one so far, suggestions are welcome
  • Do something Graphic Design Related outside of school: Because honestly I couldn’t be bothered and preferred to focus on my traditional art so it’s not really a loss for me.

So for  my first month I think I did pretty good. I’ll do my best to catch up with the things I haven’t done, but I’m not forcing myself anything, only when I actually feel like doing them.

That’s all for today, so I’ll see you guys back with my first Sketchdump of the month on Tuesday!
