Revenge of the spammers

Being a lazy human, I am always hunting for the best shortcut to everything. My brain is always searching for ways to make my life easier and more convenient... But one thing that I learnt, in life, the shortcut of happiness is usually the rocky one, full of sorrow and suffering and... Joy (Literally.). So many times I thought that its easier to give in and run away... but I forced myself to stay. I am thankful for friendships and encouragement of various people I met... its because of you guys that I am still persevering. And for the chances that are given to me by people who trust that I am responsible enough to do work with them. Thank you, I learnt alot from all of you.

Therefore, please do not say that you want to improve and refuse to do something about it. THAT IS ONE THING I CANNOT STAND! I personally find it very insulting when I heard someone say that because it feels like all the time I spent on trying to polish my skills meant nothing. There is FRIGGING no magical potion of +100 creative skills (at least not yet.). For one thing, I don't believe in talent, sure someone can pick up faster than someone else... but everything is possible in this world as long as you continue moving. Having no time is not a reason. You can draw anytime, anywhere. You are just convincing yourself that you have no time. Please... everyone is busy...

I believe one of my ex-teacher, ms Gail words strongly. Its the matter of want or need. If you need it, YOU WILL MAKE THE TIME FOR IT.

Stop whining that you are not improving or you suck... WHEN YOU ARE NOT DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Stop being drama mama, nobody in the whole world is going to help you, if you are not willing to do something about it.

Thats all I want to say, I am sorry if you feel insulted, feel free to come to me and assault me for it... I just want to say the thing that been bugging me. I am not the best artist in the whole world, maybe just average or even SUCK. But you know what? At least I am DOING something about it and I can die bragging that I did.

Enough whining. Peace people! :p

Practice: Buildings

Weekly practice, @ esplanade. Before and after... I think I improved slightly ^^a.
Well, as usual after each session, me and Near will exchange our sketchbook and comments. He says I do not have problem on establishing my depth (FG,MG,BG) but I still can improve on those for sure. And as usual, I have to be neater in my work!I have heard this comment ever since I am merely a brat and I agree...always! But curse my lazy bones! :p

Another two notable weakness are my perspective and shading.

Please do take your time and comment on my work! Even if you think it would be harsh I think I am sturdy enough to take it... so go ahead! Happy slamming my work! After all, medicine is always bitter. :p

After a long while without reading a book, I became grumpy... from the lack of a single dose of fantasy stories. In that desperation, I happen to pass through a book rental shop. Haggard looking from pain (wisdom tooth) and lack of sleep, I questioned (tortured?) the uncle for a list of new books I had surfed on the net earlier. Unfortunately he does not have all of those yet... those will be in a couple more months =_=a

In the end, I asked him for a recommendation. And he gave me a fantasy classic! Raymond E Feist's Magician. This is the first time I really read his book (Not accounting the Empire Trilogy, which he wrote with Janny Wurts.) Since, I am occupied recently, I could only read bit by bit.. so far (At chapter 2) its quite a promising start to an epic adventure! I am just getting to the nice part!

So, Ciao for now!
