Urgh I'm sorry for the lack of posts but lately I've really not been in the mood and I haven't had the strength/time to do stuff because of dad and him dragging me out to drive all the fucking time. I guess it's good that I get this over with though but I'm not enjoying it.. I cant wait to see how I fail at using a manual car D:

And I've also recently gotten quite addicted to the game Restaurant City on facebook urgh. So THAT is kind of taking some of my time as well xD

ANYWAYS in the meanwhile, have some geek music... god I love 8-bit music

I hate driving so much. Stupid cars >:c And now I'm just using an automatic car... just imagine how pissed off I'll be at the manual ones. Today I was dad's chauffeur and drove him to two jobs of his. First to Solna where I had to wait for an hour for him to be finished and then Kista where I at least was able to eat some food and look around on games, pencils, markers and stuff while I waited for him this time. And I actually bought some coloured pencils and markers just to get at least a bit traditional colouring practice. AND I also saw a really cheap scanner/printer/copymachine thingie that I wanted but I wasn't going to buy it there and then drag it around while I waited for that so I'll just check for it some other time instead.

Also, Jenna got home from China today where she had a lovely time with the hazardsuit people and quaranteen rooms that she got locked in to due to the fear of Swine fluuu. And she'll be sending me a panda plush <3

Last night I went over to some friends place again to watch a film. We were nice enough to let the girls pick out the film even though most of the guys (Patrik and Micke) wanted to watch the newest X-men movie. The girls picked a film called "Hard Candy"... and do we regret watching it hahah. I mean sure, I'll give it points for originality and skipping out on a feel-good happy ending like most movies got but seriously, I had a "wtf" feeling through out the whole movie. And I guess some scenes were well thought through but it was connecting all the scenes and make it make sense that seemed to be the problem here. Ah well, I guess we'll be watching X-men next time then haha.

Today my dad took me out to practice some driving and the first thing I did was to fail lmao. I started driving forward a bit and he went "Put the blinkers on" and I did... I thought. I pushed the wrong thing and the wind shield wipers went off and water shot out on the window and god did I freak out cause I saw nothing lmao. It went better after a while and even got to drive on a road that went 90km/h for a moment. But I need more practice.

Ok so I'm talking to my Northern Irish friend, Rachel, and we started talking about places that would be nice to go to. Then she thought of the idea to write down her list that she had in her head in her notebook that she uses for all kinds of things. So I thought I could put down a couple of places that I'd like to go to and I'll try to write down reasons to why I want to go to every place as well.
And it's not in any real order, I'm just writing them down at random.

USA - Mostly east U.S. Because I got a lot of friends in that area and I'd love to visit them all some day. And the people in America is quite friendly from what I saw when I was there. Such a difference from Sweden where people seem to be afraid of each other lmao.

Japan - Because I'm an anime geek... ok not really. I've loved the idea of going to Japan long before I found anime and manga. It just seems like a really interesting place to check out. It's really different from the usual places I go to.

England - Like with USA, because I know some people there that I'd like to meet. I've also caught an interest for the UK for some reason recently. I'm watching British shows and what not.

Russia - Because it seems interesting and I'm a bit of a tourist fag so I want to visit Saint Basil's Cathedral in Moscow.

Egypt - Again, it seems interesting and I'm a tourist fag. I wanna see Giza and some other places.

New Zealand - Because I've never been below the equator and I have relatives there that I've never met before and it'd be a chance to get to know them since I barely actually know anyone in my family except for Mum, Dad, my brother and my Uncle.

India - I seem to have some family there as well but it seems like a good place to get inspired by. And I'm, as I said, I'm a tourist fag.

Italy/Vatican - My tourist fag side pops up again. I really want to see the St. Peter's Basilica and the Colosseum. And if I can, the leaning tower of Pisa. And Venice seems to be an amazing place as well.

Hm that's all I can think of right now. Too tired to think of more haha.

Phasma phasmatis

Another colouring practice piece. Not as good as the last one if you ask me but I'm getting there.
And god I'm tired right now. Went to bed at midnight and woke up around 6 am for some odd reason even though I set the alarm to 9 am. Now I'm starting to feel tired again :c

Here's something that popped up in my head last night as a good example on stuff that I could use to practice some colouring. And I really do love how the colours came out on this practice piece but I'm not that happy with how the face turned out lmao. But it was mostly for colouring this time so it's not that big of a deal c:
Got any good constructive critique? Please share. Otherwise, enjoy the picture.

Okay so lately I've been almost isolating myself just to draw and draw. I've had this sudden rush of inspiration and I've doodled several pages with stuff. But it also made me realize that I still don't feel like a real artist. I don't feel like I'm expressing anything through art and I don't feel like I got that little extra thing that makes a picture look good and expressive that every good artist seem to have. I feel like I'm just out of reach to get to that point but it's so hard to find that little extra something that takes my art to the next level.
I also don't feel like I'm creative either. Because all I seem to draw is random characters and most of them are pretty sub-par and have a pretty common look. Nothing I draw is expressive, artistic and creative on the level of a great artist.
Now I know this just sounds like I'm whining about my skills... but I don't mean to. I just needed to get it off of my mind. Because I do know how I'm going to get all these things that I want... through practice. And then some more practice. And then a lot more practice. And I also need to learn how to let the pictures come to me on their own instead of trying to force the pictures out. Which also takes a lot of practice and, as Jenna sometimes says, trial and error.
I think I do know what I need to learn more properly before I get there though. Colouring! I am so impatient when it comes to that so I'm far from as good as I could have been at it. And I need it to fully finish most pictures.

Aaaand now it feels like this text is a whole mess so I'll just stop now lmao. I'm going to go back to my practicing and I will keep doing it like a fucking animal.. because I love it c:

Another work in progress drawing of mine that I did while I was working on my sketch dump that I'm going to finish soon I hope. I know it looks sort of emo-ish right now but I'm hoping to make this a quite colourful picture. It will also give me a chance to practice more with colours. And I have noticed a couple of errors in this line art already. Like her legs and her chest. But that's why God invented the eraser and Ctrl + Z <3>

Well today wasn't a very productive day. I spent the whole day watching all the episodes of Qi from series 3. So now I've seen series 1,2,3 and 6. Just two more to go c: But who can resist the amazing Stephen Fry <3>

Well today I went to fly in a glider and I got to do it for free because my mum's friend is a pilot and works with this stuff. So this was like a graduation gift from him to me. It was pretty neat to fly in one and I got to wear a parachute that almost crushed my crotch. But it was fine as long as I was sitting down. I flew in it for about 30 min and towards the end I felt kinda sick... they had barf bags (or whatever it's called) just in case but thank god I didn't have to use one <3>

Yeah today I did basically nothing except for drawing and browsing. And every now and then I'd get a text message and THAT happened. Every time. And it wasn't always the phone, once a cat ran in to our apartment and scared the shit out of me. Sometimes it only takes a piece of paper falling down from my desk to scare me when I'm in my room because I seem to be lost in my own little world and sometimes the littlest sounds can make me snap out of it.

My brother just sent me this and I just thought I should put it out here. I think it's really creative to make something like this and I'd so love to have this at home... even though I don't have an empty wall to do this on.

Well I finished the art-trade with Gifty. I had to have some kind of motivation so Joey suggested that if I didn't finish the picture within the day she'd block me on MSN for two weeks. And I agreed. That was more than enough motivation for me to finish the picture lmao.

Also, I just got back from the gym and is currently waiting for my brother to gtfo from the shower so I can use it >:U

I don't think I've ever been this bored oh god. I haven't done shit today and I haven't felt like doing anything either. I've been going through the same website a billion times over and over again just to see if there might be some new updates there every single time. It got fun for a while when I talked to some friends online but they are either tired, busy or away right now so I'm bored once again. Even this blog post is boring. It's just me complaining about being bored! How boring isn't that <3

P.S. Joey, Jenna, Romana, Rachel, Alex and Genesis are all faggots because they were some of the people that managed to amuse me on this boring day <3

Sorry I haven't been that active in a few days but nothing has really happened. I've just been doing the usual... drawing and hanging out with friends. And I haven't finished any of the drawings yet either so I couldn't post anything good. But today I managed to at least finish a line-art for an art trade I'm doing for my friend Gifty. So here you go. A preview c:

OH yeah and this is my first artwork using 'Easy paint tool SAI'. And I gotta say, it's amazing for line-arts. Some friends have been bugging me to try it out but I haven't been arsed until now lmao.
