Uuuhm.. William's been working on Para-Ten as well as other short comics and I had lost my tablet pen. :| I wanted to get come illustration done digitally BUT I GUESS THAT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN NOW FOR AWHILE. Or at least until I gain access to the computer labs at AIB. Which won't be until september. Which... is another thing haha. William had packed up and moved and I'll be doing the same in a week. I've been rushing to get my new ID and cellphone in on time as well as packing up.
Some good news is that I've learned how to do animation in flash! So expect some posts with animation done both digitally and in pencil during the school year. I figure since we don't have time for daily posts anymore we'd post things we'll be working on during the school year (it will be interesting, trust me :>). And maybe a weekly illustration instead of daily. Also! I've started working on a comic with a friend, and William and I have been planning on working on an animation project together.
ps. I went on vacation last week--
Never go to the beach at night if you're alone. It's kind of overwhelmingly creepy. D:

I chose the theme "Make-up", and William and I both ended up doing a humorous illustration for it. William's is so funny that it makes me glad I chose tonight's theme, hahaha. Makeup is applied on her face by a friend and it's her furst tyme, so she's all anxious. Hahaha. Reminds you of Earthbound's sexy laydeez, yeah?
I really like the color composition and how the oranges on it balanced out in William's. he's been trying to add warmer colors to his paintings since he feels his colors are too desaturated. Hmhm, also he used photoshop on this sketch. Can you tell the difference? :D I think it looks neat. I really like flat brushes.
Mine was finished because I was feeling cruddy about a majority of my other drawings. D: I hadn't done anything really satisfying in a long time.. so I worked this one to a more finished point, and I'm glad I did. Also I started playing with effects on photoshop and I really like that warm feel. I did a old summery photograph-type painting in my deviant art.. it's ok.. but I want to redo another one and this time with William's characters from Para-Ten in it. Hahaha. So it's fanart and experimentation, two in one. Yeah!
William picked out the colors on the shirt and hat of my drawing. It's so cute. :>
Also today we realized that the colors we pick out for our drawings are opposites (warm vs. cool). I think it's funny how it's always like that in the most trivial manner. Haha.
PS. I HATE PICKLE JARS ;A;
