Some ravens...

I've been considering uploading some photos here. Nothing fancy, i just take pictures of some random stuff (mostly my room mates cats) and some of them come out lookin' neat.

Regarding Photoshop Skills

Today my friend Dianna and i challenged eachother to a duel. A photoshop duel, where we must create the Best Picture Ever using photoshop. This was my final product. If anyone would like a tutorial, i can happily provide one.

Aaaand i guess here's something for real, using more manuscript samples, plus a photo of my bed and laptop. She's a digital medium who contacts the spirit world through the internet (get it? get the pun? i found it appropriate.)

There's a part of me that would love to learn how to illuminate manuscripts. There's a bigger part of me that realizes that the art form is tedious. I suppose that's why i'm an animator.
Plus manuscripting (i don't know the actual word for it, so i made this one up) would have little to no practical application, other than artifact forgery which is good money but weighs too heavily on the soul.
In any case, this is my un-named star of my story this year. i think the manuscript samples i used are the work of the Limbourg Brothers. I just thought they looked neat.

The wierd thing about art school is instead of doodling in the margins of essays you find yourself doodling in the margins of other doodles.
The coelecanth in the corner would be my pirate flag... if i were a pirate.

Pentel makes this brush pen that's impossible to find. My friend Ed knows where to find them and got me one for Hanukkah a few years back. I lost it for about a year, then found it a few months ago. It's a pretty amazing pen. It holds India Ink (i think) and has synthetic bristles that won't fray over time. It's fun to play around with and i need to learn how to use it properly.

Featured below are some attempts to remember how to draw the kanji for "fire". I have failed miserably, my appologies to the culture.

The Ride

This is a a tale of my room mates cat Squash. It is only partially true. Whichever part you choose to believe... i'll leave it up to you.

To be continued....?
