Not-progress chart

leave a comment »

Something from 2009 which I just recently uncovered:

2009 sketch magician

2009 sketch assassin

So these were characters that I used to draw pretty often… One is a wizard, and the other is an assassin (because, Rurouni Kenshin ftw). I had a storyline going for the latter, though incomplete, and for a long time it was my dream to turn that story into a comic. Luckily I’m a fervent note-taker and hoarder. Ha.

Then, something from recently:

2016 sketch ted

2016 sketch jude

Ted and Jude, who else.

On a sidenote, it seems like I turn to drawing (only) when most of everything else sucks. Though in a way I’m grateful that I have at least that, the last bastion when everything else is, or seems to be, crumbling.

A “thing” that online artists do is to upload “progress charts” where they show something from several years ago compared to current work. Usually the difference is pretty astounding (otherwise there’s no point uploading it, really). So this is a not-progress chart, because not much has changed, even when it has.

Almost forgotten things

I have 2 favourite kinds of holidays.

One is where I jump out of bed every morning and get out and just keep walking on and on from one place to another, and crash when I come back at night (and repeat). This is why my trip to Japan last year is still one of my favouritest holidays to date. The other kind is where I just sit down in peace in front of the laptop, with a notebook etc and do whatever I want to do for hours on end.

I’m currently having the latter. I cannot describe in words, the sheer bliss of having a whole uninterrupted day in front of the computer. (I’m such a nerd…) I was looking at some of my old folders which was a treasure trove of nostalgia, with some hidden gems. Looking back at how much time and dedication I put into my online life, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at how bad I am at making real-life friends now. T_T

There is one thing that is disturbing my peace of mind slightly… I found out that one of my JC schoolmates, who was my guitar club conductor, is on the AirAsia flight that went missing this morning. So here is praying that the flight managed to land, and all passengers are safe.

From a longgg time ago (these used to be among my favourite drawings, and I still like them even now):

I have actually been drawing some new things recently… just have not scanned them yet! *defensive*
