Pinned toot

The next Semester of starts next week and its... My second and third semester!
I have performed well enough in the first to gain some liberties, I'm doing two semesters at the same time and I'm also combining various studies to have a curriculum tailored to my goals! I'm so happy, this is even better than my boldest hopes in the beginning of the school!
Among others, I'll have two Illustration-Based classes next year (rest is Design stuff) so I hope I'll have a lot to post this time!

Next Monday I'm starting at a new !
And I'll return to the thing that I did when I created this account: I'll document the day to day life of being an art student!

While I originally dreamed of studying animation, life has led me to now study Communication Design with a focus on Illustration at a local academy. I still 100% intend to return to the animation industry once I'm done though!

Tune in if you're interested in my Art School Experience!

I borrow my partners backup drive and as I plug it in, it makes unhealthy clicking noises.
Me: "Well, I hope you still have these files on your PC."
Him: "No? Thats the only place where I save them."
Me: "But you said it's your backup drive."
Him: "It is!"
Me: "That's not how backups work."
Him: "It has worked until now"
Me (Panicking): "*That is not how backups work!*"
(Thankfully, the drive still worked on his PC and he's now backing up his files.)

As my ArtSchool InDesign Project files go corrupt, I realize my hard drive is failing. (Its okay I got backups)
I used three SMART tools to confirm this.
3rd Party Windows program said: "Disk is about to die."
built in tool said "Disk is about to die."
build in tool said "Everything is A-OK!!"

TIL Coats of Arms were the first Corporate Identities

Doing two semesters at the same time is tough as nails and incredibly rewarding. I feel like a machine of productivity - and I love it. You see, I'm more susceptible to bore-out than I am to stress. While it's physically exhausting, my mental health is soaring. Welcome to my comfort zone: The front line :)

"I must be the calmest person to ever live!" concluded the fool. "Every time I punch someone, they get offended, whereas I have never been bothered by punching them!"

I'm officially ready for the new semester starting tomorrow! I *downgraded* my note- and sketchbook to a cheaper thing to allow myself to be more loose and conceptual instead of trying to make a fancy book - So I made a cover page for that vibe!

My typography teacher would probably kill me for that lettering though.

Also yes this is an approximate self-portrait.

"This time may treat us harshly, but I am not giving up. There is still good in this world."
"What makes you so sure of that, pipsqueak?"
"I am still in it."

Random lesson of today: The German word for "Stocking" is "Strumpf". It's pronounced "Shtrmpf". Just forget about the vowel. It will only hinder you at peak German.

Dog Poop Rant (Funny?) 

There appears to be a new dog owner in our neighborhood and they properly pick up their dogs litter and put it in a bag, but then they leave the bags lying around like
?????
Whats the thought process behind that?That's the worst of both worlds! You go through the effort of packaging the shit, but the environment is littered anyways, except, now it can't even decay? We have trash cans every 5m here you have left those things right next to them
WHERE IS YOUR LOGIC MATE

I created something!
I don't know what, but something. And somehow I like it.
I'm back to Photoshop after a long time and now I have to try out the new brushes. I'll probably cool down after some time but the fastest way to learn is to go all out so yeah :D

Scribbling - At the moment I really like using a thin permanent marker - you can't undo anything but because it's so thin it also forgives mistakes. Really incentivizes you to stay loose.

We're playing the tabletop game TEARS and because we set it in our home town I decided to play myself.
Witness scibbled Ayior Self-Portrait for my character sheet.

Today as part of our in I decided to do the session digitally!
And I also figured that on Windows 10 and Photoshop (FOSS nightmare, I know) it's really easy to capture it, so if you want to see this process sped up by 16x, here you go!

1. Do you remember in "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" Ginny Weasley wrote scary texts in blood on the wall while posessed by the Tom Riddle spirit?

A strange question: Who has the copyright to these texts – Ginny or Tom?

A strange answer: The same question has been considered by UK and US courts.

Here is a thread about the copyright to texts dictated by spirits and ghosts 👻
