Monday; Who cares

As always, I find myself drawing more when I don't have to do it for university. Somehow that's a little sad. I've not, however, been animating more at all, which is also disappointing. And I guess that's a little sad as well. 

These three drawings are within five pages of each other, housed in the same sketchbook. Perhaps one day I'll be able to draw with consistency and have some sort of trademark, but at the moment I definitely do not. At the rate I'm going, I'll probably never have something like that.

When I was younger (and very, very deep inside the anime world) I used to wish that I had a definite and recognised "style" but why on earth would I want that now?

I've been drinking more coffee than I probably need lately. It's really growing on me. I'm not sure if that's sad or not.
The only drawing program I have on my laptop at the moment is firealpaca which is probably the closest thing I'll ever get to having SAI on a Mac laptop. I haven't drawn on my tablet for much too long. I'm trying to get back into doing it, but trying to improve skills that have died down is difficult and I'm a big whiney pissbaby.

Photos next,

Thursday; Deutsch, Noch Einmal

Hi friends,

I've been down with the Exams in the last month or so. Here are some things I've been doing instead of studying.

So many things went wrong with this dear ol' image. Nevertheless it looks like cool poop so hello internet here it is

Last night my laptop decided that it was a good idea for me to not be on the internet. My Chrome froze, and, exhausting all possibilities, I had to suffocate it. When I rebooted, only the Recovery disk worked and, after two hours of googling and angry tears, I only had the option to erase my disk left. Being the very savvy person I am, I hadn't ever used Time Machine or the Cloud, registered for Apple Care or manually backed up any of my new files for about three months.

About two hours ago I went to the Mac store to make them do what I could never bring myself to do. A very nice lady came up to me after I sat on a stool for fifteen sweaty minutes, took one look at my laptop after pressing two buttons and told me that I'd have to erase the whole thing.

I'm manually going through all my new settings currently and looking at all the apps that come with my Mac that I never use. It wasn't that big of a deal in the end. Kind of just felt like I'd shaved all my hair, which doesn't mean too much to me at all. I'd started all my recent assignments on Google Drive, and I take about a hundred photos on my phone every single day. Two or three months of the last whatever isn't going to be much missing later down the track.

The moral of the story is that nothing really matters in the end because who needs back ups of memories? (high fives echo into the abyss)

I probably could have split this drawing post into about three drawing posts, but what better than a big bootied post to show me exactly how much I've been paying attention in class? These are all exclusively drawn in Deutsche Klasse, and I'm not even posting the ones that aren't that nice looking.

There will be some queued posts,
