I don't think there will be any major changes to this so here it is.

One of those days...

Do you have one of those days that you do something for the whole day only to be unhappy and then draw something in 2 hours and be surprised?

I don't like those days. )=

The Evolution

This is quite old now, probably from December or November, and I was thinking of posting it once I coloured it but seeing how time is of the essence this semester for now I will only post the sketches.
I decided to sketch out Kikimo the way she looked like at specific points to present. This way I don't need to remind myself by looking at the blasts from the past. I completely forgot how fun she is to draw in dresses.

It's been 7 years since I have created her. Time flies.

Somethin Moody

This is based on Jean Liang's Devil's Advocate.
The head is supposed to be camilia rose even though I thought it's a cool smoke. So here it's both.
Hope you like it Jean! =3

Some old first year sketches combined with few new sketches to create a swab of coloured animals.

Smokin Finished?

Well for now. Off to other stuff!

The "wallpaper" is one of the japanese origami papers I bought when I was in Japan. It's so tacky, I love it. (=

Reasons Why I do not agree Flipbook is a Good Program

It has a horrible tendency of crashing, it has a limited amount of files it accepts, it does not have a proper undo, its pans and zooms work in a really weird way, sometimes not at all properly, and worst of all, it randomly decides to destroy files.

I have finished fully colouring an animation just a few minutes ago, closed the file and doesn't want to open anymore. What is the problem? Flipbook has corrupted my file. This is the second time this has ever happened to me and I am really not pleased. It is a tremendous waste of time and energy all due to a program.

Does the program have pros? Sure. But do they balance out the cons? For something that is considered as a professional and recommended program, absolutely not.

A friend of mine just said this: even if it can do a bunch of stuff, the way you have to get it to do it is so convoluted it's not even funny, and then there's all the technical problems and the fact that you have to do bajillion steps to do one thing that can be done in one step in almost every other program. The only thing flipbook can do moderately well is rough animating and colouring and for what it's worth you can do the same thing easier/the same in alot of other programs and you won't have to deal with flipbook's issues.

It is quite lovely that Flipbook also decided to screw up my rough clean just now. So here is an image of what I am trying to finish.

Mrs. Sourpuss is not amused. )=

No, not really. I don't support smoking in any way. But cigar smoke is an interesting special effect.

Thank you Dean for helping me out with my animations!

For now the arms and the face are not there, but not for long!
Strangley enough the animation is slower than in TV Paint.

Happy New Year!

I really wanted to have one last post before 2011 but my tablet malfunctioned and stopped working completely on my laptop. Oh well. Instead,
Here is the first post of this year!
For my New Years I was hanging out with my parents, and we watched this show about 3 most famous cabarets in Paris. One of them was Moulin Rouge, and for their final act they have these really cool costumes that glow in the dark. It's shocking how those costumes are so revealing yet ridiculously expensive (in Lido, even bigger cabaret, they have one costume that is around 18 000 euros).
