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! (*≧▽≦)

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:

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

HAHAHA OH SHERA X'D ♥ i fully support you! your skinning is wonderful. i suppose you could always offer to do graphics on the side, like banners for events and stuff? that should take up a considerable amount of work methinks! ' o '
eclateclats_de_voix on February 20th, 2012 04:15 pm (UTC)
Yeah... I don't want to do a lot, you know? //dives away into science homework

LOLOLOL that's true!! i still hope you get a mainly graphics job over a games job though ; w ; i get the impression that handing out cards + linking them and all takes forever orz
