You know what I would like? Right now, it'd be a nudish pink tulle skirt, with a satin waistband, kind of like the types that ballerinas wear. It would be awesome with a really light grey long-sleeved shirt, nude lace tights and nude ballet flats with a grosgrain bow.
Breaking news: I got my tablet. In fact, I'm posting this from it right now! The part I'm most excited about, though, despite the crazy amount of cool stuff this computer has- is the stylus. I don't have Photoshop on it at the moment -the guy at the shop said I'd have to disable it from the Asus to get it onto the tablet, but I want to make sure my brushes and stuff don't get destroyed first- but even Paint, which is a default program anyway, has some extra things on it that the other computers I've used didn't have.
For example... they have different kinds of brushes! For the fantabulously insane comic I drew above, I used pencil (marker?) and crayon, I think. I've also drawn a design that I came up with back in Chiangmai- a virtual copy, which shall be posted to TSKS later when I get it running. For that I experimented a bit more with colours and used a pencil, watercolour brush (I KNOW!!) and... and.. that's it, I think, for tools, but I did twirk around (LOL) with the thickness.
We're going out for tea to meet Uncle Seng-hock and Uncle Andrew + families now, so more later... Looks like this blog will terminate at post #247 - 10 more than usual?
Happy 2010, everyone!
My resolution for the new year (which I will hopefully keep- something I didn't do for 2009): to be a big step closer to my dream(s) (i.e. photography, fashion design, writing) than I am now.
My plans to achieve this include: buying a tablet (which I will do tomorrow, with luck) for drawing designs on Photoshop, borrowing De-gu's first camera and try working with more manual adjustments before buying a more tricked-out version, putting in hard work in ELPS and continually submitting articles for Sundays' Youth Classifieds.
It seems my plans to put a big long update post here keep backfiring: it's 11.51 PM at the moment and I have the odd feeling that if I go a minute over midnight somebody (i.e. one of my parents) is going to come and kill me. Really.
Maybe it will wait until The Secret Kooks Society is up...? (Yes, I abandoned the idea(s) of Falling Sapphires and Etoile Filante. TSKS sounds nicer... and oh wait, you pronounce it as TSKS! That is so awesome!)
Anyway. Little wondrous rant aside... Here's to a wonderful 2010, and I hope your year will be better than mine. (I'm as optimistic as you can get- but there's no denying that for me, this year will be an uphill one. "2 days left to the real life," as De-gu so aptly put it...)
