art block  

The period when I was working on the magazine illustration, I was really in the zone. I was drawing non-stop the entire day, alternating between the illustration and my own fanart on the side. But when I finally finished the illustration, I just crashed as;dlfajsdf. (´;ω;`)

I had an art block, which was followed by a fever and throbbing headaches for the next three days, and no thanks to my curiosity I started coding a website to host my TCG collective to counter my art block - which kinda intensified my headaches, HAHA. CSS and PHP codes sure as hell work superbly as medication counterreactives. But I successfully turned this into this; I'm pretty proud of it! I think the graphics turned out really well too. (。✧‿✧。)

B-but ehhem! That's all well and peachy but... this post is to remind myself to start drawing by tomorrow! I've been doing some observational drawings for my portfolio quite half-heartedly because I just couldn't gather the strength in my fingers -- but this will change tomorrow. YES. A;SDLKFASDLF /slaps sense into self

p.s. I also created an artlog (erstsince) pre-block and will be posting random processes and sketches there, because I simply can't get used to posting on tumblr. orz so if it interests you, please do follow and support me there! (*≧▽≦)

wow! that came out nice! I was wondering, since I saw it -- was the css hard? Is it too much work compared to lj? Or inserting your cards? I think i'll stay hosted here because it's easier to update.

also, i was bored yesterday too and made an lj layout layout like you X] i turned this into this. i'm planning to give it to arisa as a present, but if she doesn't like it, I can just turn it into a more personalize layout and put it on my graphics site for anyone to take.

I will be watching the commm ;3 Tumblr is sssuuuuuch a pain!

thank you, i'm so glad you think so! your fluency in css seems pretty good too, so i don't think you'll have problems with it! i think the main difficulty is working around with php codes and knowing how they work - they gave me a big headache cause i had absolutely no idea how to create pages. orz as for updating cards, there're things are trade managers too, and they're really easy to use once you set them up! but tbh if my lj post could contain my cards i would choose to stay here too, hehe.
though, if you ever change your mind, feel free to ask me for help! i had to scour the webs for help so many times because even the tutorials confulzzled me. orz

WOW SHERA!! that's really adorable!! i really hope she uses it because i would love to see comm pages with these 8'D you're also so very nice! ♥ /squishes you

thank you bb!! ikr ; A ; lately i find myself using less and less, even for personal reasons orz i wonder why D: D:
eclat: workingeclats_de_voix on February 13th, 2012 10:08 pm (UTC)
What do you mean your lj couldn't contain all your cards? Does that mean I might have to move too?

If this happens, will you make the get the site for me and skin it for me q_q If I ever can't fit all my cards at lj.

I HOPE SHE LIKES IT TOO. It's awkward when you make a layout. Because you want it to be perfect and you designed it, but you don't know how others will see it.

And it's because tumblr is cold. It's like art without empathy. You just sit there and watch it pass by like an ant.
b e l ♛: smile / it's been a long nightciette on February 13th, 2012 10:59 pm (UTC)
hmm that's a possibility! lj has a character limit, so if you hoard lots of future cards like me (and never get them mastered sobs) then that's a possibility! when that possibility comes, you can either like many, 1. create an external site in dreamwidth (some people just copy and paste the html there because the format is so similar) but it just so happened that my particular layout screwed up asd;lfjasdf. if you're ocd like me, then 2. creating the site is the new option! o/

sure thing bb! i don't mind! i'll direct you to the appropriate sites to sign up and i'll help you do the php bit! i hope you don't mind using a premade layout though (i can give you more links to other sites' too)! they're all quite pretty and i told myself i'm never coding another one from a template because it's too painful. ; A ;

yup exactly!! but if they do like it it's always a pleasant surprise!! ♥ when do you intend to give it to her? *_*

un un, i'm with you there. i feel like it's a lot harder to socialise there too! i would always love to take the opportunity to talk to people about my art if possible, but tumblr is mostly a touch and go sorta thing. D: for many other things too, like fandom! i guess it's only nice if you're satisfied with reposting pretty pictures like i go there to burn stress once in a while. D:
eclateclats_de_voix on February 14th, 2012 07:14 pm (UTC)
You hit the character limit? But I have more cards than you and I still have more characters. I don't think you hit the character limit until maybe about 500 cards? But by then, though, you would have most off and away in mastered piles yeah?

I don't want to hoard lots of future cards because then it makes it harder to trade. and yeah, then to master. I like to collect the card that build up in my trade pile because I don't mind mastering unpopular decks. I love everything about reborn and pineapple is the only deck I'm swimming against the current to collect. LOL so many people are puuuuutttingg it innn there fuuuutuuure deck <_< =_= bel... ♥ As for the skin, I gave it to her already, but she hasn't gotten back to me. I wrote about it in the suggestions thread from a ways back. Maybe she set it so that it doesn't notify her or something. I think the mods do that to keep their inboxes from being spammed by us lolol.

yup!! i think it might be cause of my layout too! i think the character limit includes html coding, and my table's coding seemed to involve more of that! i think if your table seems less html heavy so it should definitely hang in there for a longer time! it helps that your future deck isn't too big too! i tend to hoard cards for decks i don't mind in my future deck until i coincidentally accumulate around 10 (oh god hahaha no wonder my deck is huge) and then i transfer it to my collecting deck X'D
yes i realised you do collect lots of unconventional decks! i think that's great too o/ it definitely helps to collect decks people prioritise less in :3 faster masteries!

sheeeraaaaa♥ i think suggestions go directly to a reborntcg email, maybe they haven't check it in a while o A o (they took a while to get back to me when i asked about trading badges too!) hopefully she gives a favourable response soon *_*

I try not to collect to much because its strategy. I guess I play more for business, while you clutch everything.. gawd.

Just sayin' but if you were mooooore like me ;] you'd collect them in your trade pile -- which just means that you like them but you'd rather trade them for card decks you have more of. That's how I see it, and there's only enough resources out to only collect a certain amount of decks. You'll have more luck with trade, etc, if your less sentimental if you get me.

N-E-ways ugh. I have a wait then B| But I think she'll get it when Arisa and Abby update on sunday.

i get your strategy entirely! i think that's a better method, tbh, and i totally agree :"> i tried that once, too, and rofl i gave up because my hoarder instincts are too strong and i wind up feeling insecure about my trade pile. it's alright mate, i'll make do with slower trades to satisfy these illogical urges orz (you know what? i feel like i'm becoming some kind of squirrel hoarding acorns for winter)

yeah, i think so! D: and sunday comes card inflowwwwwww so they're gonna be so busy ;;; tell me how it goes bb! btw just curious, did you sign up for modship? ' o ' i'm kinda wondering who did just randomly. /didn't

(this is pat, btw hehe. it's new journal time again, i hope you don't mind!)

thank you for all the hard work on the illustration bb! it was simply amazing! AND WOW THAT WEBSITE IS AMAZING TOO. WAY TO GO ON CODING IT! lol i took web design last semester; i understand the coding and the scripts and all that just fine, but i have no design aesthetic whatsoever HAHAHAHA

i'm so glad you liked it! to hear so many great compliments from everyone, it really encourages me and i'm so glad i got to help out! and hehe thank you! *_*
wow they have a specific class for it, that's amazing! (though i'd get a headache from many projects ; A ;) hehe i'm the opposite! the codes and scripts confuzzled me and i got terrible headaches from them. hehe remember i've dabbled in web design since a long time ago? XD hehe i still remember your comments on my first blog layout :3

also, thank you so much for the watch on the comm! *_* ♥ i hope you like my drawings in future too!
patricia: fangs upclenchedsoul on February 13th, 2012 11:15 am (UTC)
i think it's astounding that you're so versatile as an artist! in every way. you know how to take both the spotlight and the backseat when the situation calls for it. what makes editors and writers like me happy is that i just need to brief you once and you give me the EXACT thing i want PLUS you exceed my expectations :')

yes, yes, i do remember. it was so cute hehe. this is another reason why we'd do so well collaborating together LOL. except i hate designing things so much i just.... no. web design. NO.

i'll definitely be on the lookout for your future work, as always ♥

asd;flasjfd ; w ; thank you for your kind words! i think we're extremely in sync, because the moment you briefed me on the phone, the image immediately came to mind (even the colour scheme)! you wouldn't believe how pleasantly surprised i was to find out you were thinking of a similar thing! ♥ * A * i'm so glad it turned out well technically too! i got over my colourphobia after working on that piece so it helped me grow a lot. o/

hehe yes! i think if we worked together, we'd be able to give each other very effective feedback and encouragement at the same time! it's okay bb, i can take care of that! o7 though rofl i've had my fair share of web design for a few months. did you feel nauseated when you looked at codes during your class? XD omg i always do.

thank you for support my cute son. :"> i love you! ♥
patricia: fangs upclenchedsoul on February 15th, 2012 12:27 pm (UTC)
WOOOOOW WE ARE LIIIIIINKED!!! that's good to know :') but what made you have that fear in the first place? o:

we should think of something to do together! it sounds like it'll be a really great and fun project hehe. lol i felt more nauseated working with flash... i got confused over the layers and the action scripts and i-it was just so overwhelming sometimes it would feel like my brain overheated and shortcircuited lol.

♥ ♥!!! i think it was just a problem i've always had, but became good at hiding. ; w ; for coursework, i worked mostly with monochromatic underpaintings and then worked over with colour, but it feels like i'm evading the problem, y'know? D: lately i've decided to just dive into colour right away though i've never been very good at mixing and matching them. > < hopefully this will work out somehow!

Y-YES!! one of which can be... a birthday project for fumiki next year (SHOT) we never got to celebrate his birthday! ; w ; oh god i've never touched flash because it does seem terribly complicated! @ A @ i suspect i'll have to in future but alsdkfj new programs are always so tiring to get used to. i spent so long with photoshop orz

edit: also, thank you so much for the virtual gift!!! you are so cute and precious ♥!! i badly wanted to send one to you back but lj kept giving me a "this is a broken link" error when i clicked the gift, grrr. but i want to tell you i love you very muchly ♥ i'd be your ceiling to your kimobe anytime :">

oooh, that's the spirit bb! face your problems head on :D

um... next january probably won't be a good idea since i'll be working full-time (mandatory internship before graduation) ;^; BUT WE CAN ALWAYS FIND SOMETHING ELSE. i hope. LOL. oh man, are the art courses you're looking at in university software-heavy? in my course, we had three graphic and web design modules over two semesters (two in year one and one in year two). we were pretty much thrown into crash courses for photoshop, illustrator, flash, dreamweaver and fireworks and then they were like "OH HAI NOW YOU HAVE TO PRODUCE A FULL DESIGN/WEBSITE ON YOUR OWN FOR YOUR FINAL PROJECT. *GIGGLE* FUN ISN'T IT? GOOD LUCK, NO MORE CLASSES SO YOU'LL HAVE TO FIGURE THIS OUT ON YOUR OWN~"

it's okay bb! i can feel your love over the interwebz in every comment fufufu /gropes sneakily

oh dear, i see! when will you be deciding where and how long will you be working for? ' o ' YES WE CAN!! i think having our own original project would be amazing fun ♥ and hmm, it's likely that i'm going into game design, so yes, i should think so! worse still, i think most of the other students are from polytechnics with animation courses, so they're going to be a lot more fluent at the computer language than i am! (so so worried) YOUR MODULES SOUND CRUEL OMG O___O teaching so many programs at once gives so little time to warm up to it as well as exposure ;;; i hope it wasn't a single person's project because that would have been insane!

you are so cute my son ; w ; i love you everyday more and moreeee (hugs) ♥

i'm not sure how we select our internships yet... i should know by around may where i'll be posted to o: i'll probably be working for 5-6 months starting in september or october this year. don't worry about it bb!!! you'll be fine!!!! you've got your own strengths too that'll help keep you above whatever situations you find yourself in :') i don't know much about the poly animation courses, but look at it this way: if you've got classmates experienced with the software, you can ask them for help so you can catch up with the rest of them if you're struggling ^^

you're super cute too, daddy! i get all my cuteness from you :3 ♥ cuddles~ LOVING YOU MOAR AND MOAR EACH DAY TOO XD

oh and to answer your question — in year 1 it was a group project with some design and software tests that i barely passed lol. in year 2 it was all individual except for a campaign website project @_@ but it doesn't change the fact that we had one week to create an entire website from scratch by ourselves lol

woah, i hope those five to six months work towards inspiring to your future job even more ♥ after seeing you at work on the magazine project, i get the feeling you'll be doing very well! ♥ and aah, you're right!! you must give me your optimism vibes /absorbs them from you/ ♥ i'm too much of a pessimist and i must frequently remind myself about the bright side of things! hehe. thanks my lovely!

aaaah ♥ ♥ every time i don't see you for a while i feel like squeezing you a;sdkljasdf

wow @_@ dude one week for a website alone is really hard! i was just editing a template, and i took three/four days and there's hardly any content i needed to pull out from anywhere at all, unlike a journaling website @ A @ that must have been tough! i'm so glad it's over orz i wouldn't want to do it as well OTL

that's true!! /nod nod/ i believe that things will happen the way they're supposed to too. :"> thinking that way is comforting and does stop the panic! i wonder if it's an excuse but al;dkfasf it's a calming mindset 8D

yup yup, that's true!! just curious, what are you uni choices right now? o: are you still intending to go into journalism? i heard from sherri that journalism is something you learn on the job and that it's better to study something you like like literature ' A ' (she has probably already told you this) just curious on your thoughts on this! your words motivate me a lot more than you think, bb :"> ♥ ♥!!

AAAAH YOU CUTIE *___* ♥!!

omg that was the project in china?! lmao i was in the comfort of my home and i was already crying inside. @__@ that's insanity, no wonder you're so traumatised XDD oh goodness what a nightmare, thank goodness it's over (HUGS) lmao working on something web related in china is the most ironic thing ever @__@
patricia: clenchedclenchedsoul on February 28th, 2012 01:15 pm (UTC)
yup, she's right — journalism is the more practical choice, but it's always something i can learn on the job. i wanted to take it as a degree at first because it's a practical one but... what if i find out i don't wanna work in journalism forever? where can i branch out to after that? literature is something i definitely want to keep exploring at the academic level, but my mom was saying that journalism would be more useful since it's a practical application of literature. do you get what i mean? o: i mean, most lit grads end up in either media or teaching anyway haha. but if i jump straight to journalism, when else am i going to give my last shot at my true academic passion?

right now, i'm looking at an australian education because
1) with the US economy these days... it's an impractical choice. i'd be in debt before i even get my first job (school fees are monstrous too)
2) local university lit programmes suck balls
3) australian unis are cheaper and
4) i'll get my degree in 2 years instead of 3 or 4 since australia is very familiar with the polytechnic curriculum

right now i'm looking at the University of Melbourne, Monash University and the Australian National University

i know exactly what you mean, and that's what i've been meaning to ask, as well! i'm quite aware you are plenty passionate about literature, so i am actually really supportive of you pursuing it in university!

you seem to have thought well about it, and i think that's great! true enough, i think us uni fees are absolutely overpriced for international students, and i wouldn't be able to go for one unless i got a really good scholarship as well @__@ i never knew australia was familiar with poly curriculum, so i think it's a really good choice! i'm hoping you manage to attend a great literature faculty there bb <3

I think I have a good eye for art and colors, especially with pictures. I wish I would have the money for a really great camera *_____*

I can’t stop saving. I am addicted to art because it expresses so much. And I love museums. I can walking around in a museum for hours, just sitting there and looking at a drawing.
Art is so beautiful. And so precious ♥

I think it is for people who want to make better pictures than usual ^^

i know what you mean! i love a lot of the old art as well. *_* especially european art. recently they had an exhibition for renaissance works here, and it was so good. ;__; but they rarely have western older art here. i agree, new contemporary art gives a very different feel - sometimes, it feels too pretentious as well. D: THE BRUSHSTROKES OF THE OLD MASTERS ARE SO AMAZING ;___; to think they touched that very canvas before...

that's awesome!! ♥ if i have time during that period we must definitely meet! *_* especially since you're coming down near my home hehe. who are you traveling with?

And I am travelling alone XD Surprise, surprise ^^
Years before I thought I never would do something like that but my longing for Asia was so huge and I wanted to come back so badly that I had to go alone. No one wanted to go with my and my mum didn't have the money for it.
The first time I was so, so nervous and scared. But after that I prefer it to travel alone :)

omg i would feel terrified to go abroad alone, especially to another region!! you're so brave ; w ; and i'm so glad you like it so much here!!! *___* just curious, why do you like traveling alone? o: is the experience really different?

Trust me, I was. I remember on my first trip alone and omg, I was freaking afraid. I sat at the airport and was like: You have two choices. You take the plane and fly to Indonesia or you are not taking the flight and all your money is gone. I decided for flying to Indonesia and I had two great weeks.

Hm, I like travelling alone because I don’t have to take care of others. I like it to be alone and I am hard to handle, so sometimes I can be a real burden to others. And I would feel the whole time guilty and thinking: Is my behaviour alright? Am I getting on her nerves? I would think way too much about the other person instead of myself. Like, I have to go with her to all the places she wanna see and so on.
I know I sound extremely selfish but in my past I always acted like that. So, travelling alone helps me to learn making my own decisions and not feeling guilty about it.
Every time I travel alone to Asia it is something like a learning process :)

Really? *laughs*
I know that from my friends, which live and work/go to school in Singapore. When I talked to them what I wanted to see and visit they were always like … really? Didn’t visit this place XD
