✨ 2019 in Art ✨

Thanks to everyone for sticking with me through 2019 - it's been an odd year, but hopefully my art put a smile on a face or two. I sure had a lot of fun.

I wanted to replay Gray Matter, but they never fixed the bug where game's performance is for some reason tied to your machine's uptime, so it starts to stutter and drop to literally 5fps after an hour or two.

I know the fix is "easy" - reset the machine, play the game - it's also super annoying because you have to keep doing it if you want to play longer or multiple sessions in a day.

I'm still on Day 3 (blending/edges) since the past two days have been sucky, BUT here's the progress!

This is very different from my usual workflow so I'm learning a lot! Did you know the Smudge Tool has multiple modes? 😱
You can smudge hue, saturation, lightness/darkness... I think it may be very useful for blending out colour values! Gotta experiment with it more.

Hm sometimes I wish we had a translation/languages option... like, if you write a toot, you can do so in multiple languages. idk sometimes I want to use my own language (mainly on the birdsite, I don't think anyone would understand me on here, but that's besides the point) and still provide a translation for the international audience...

My face mask + glasses review:

Mask + sunglasses = nice 'n' comfy
Mask + prescription glasses = holy mother of fog
Mask + prescription glasses + chewing very minty bubblegum = DO NOT DO IT

Finally found my way into making a more detailed painting again! It's been so long.
A lady knight, inspired by Serbian cultural clothing and mythology. Her adventure is about to start.

I hope you like her!

So, I went down a nostalgia rabbit hole, and in short, discovered that Ayumi Hamasaki has a YouTube page now.

She was a weird one for me, back in the day, because I tried SO HARD to be into jpop but to be 100% truthful, I never liked it.

"STEP you" still brings out really weird feelings and memories, though. It's a time capsule I cannot fully explain!

And I'm sure "Startin'" would be a cringey meme in this day @_@

Reminder to everyone who also feels overwhelmed by the current situation: step away from what you are currently doing when you start to feel overwhelmed, and take 5minutes to just breathe.
If you also feel like losing something like control over your day, make a list with everything that comes to your mind that you want to do or have to do,or just ideas.
I know lists don't help everyone, but it may help someone structure their day in these days.

oh yeah! Here's a graphic on leaf morphology from the lovely wiki article on it. Pretty useful for art reference, and I guess for anyone interested in leaf morphology.

Very grateful for self-checkout lanes today... I hope it helps the poor workers, too :(

[] ArenaNet lowkey just dropped the third expansion and CANTHA announcement and suddenly I feel infinitely better :O
