So I thought it's time for a new journal! Not that I have a whole lot of meaningful stuff to say, but I thought I'd let you know that I'm still alive, haha! I have been fairly busy with uni assignments lately, lots of annoying writing and attempting to reach minimum word counts, it really is quite dull. And I am working on a commission as well. But I cannot really complain too much, I am doing well :D

And while I may not have had the time to really do a painting, I've been actively filling pages of my sketchbook with little thumbnail sketches, playing around with different ideas for sceneries and perspectives more, which is heaps of fun. Most sketches are not more than four inches wide (about ten cm), some even less, and they don't take too long :D And all done with pencils or pen, but it's ideal to stay rough. I can only recommend anyone to do that!
When I have some more time again, I will probably plough through the thumbnails and pick some which I will paint! :dance:

Also I've been meaning to do that for a while now, I wanted to plug Sangiev's King of Land contest here! It will go through several rounds, and the good entries of each round advance to the next. There seems to be a fair amount of prizes waiting at the end, too, so have a look :D


The deadline has been extended to April 20th, so there's plenty of time for you guys to join in :nod:

Now back to assignments :salute: How is life treating all of you? :#1:

Love you all,
Dancakes :heart:


Sketchy goodness:</b>

Sketches are fun! Homeworks pull me away from completing art works. :(

Aww, yeah, I know, I'm loaded with assignments, too =( It's quite annoying, really.

Hey! Good to see you're still alive and well.
Hope all that work of yours ain't too bad.
And just like someone above... I'd love to see some of those sketches of yours.

As for myself... My computer's crashed twice in two weeks, so I'm rather ticked and unproductive. How that differs from usual, I don't know, though xD
memod Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2009  Professional
Hehe, well we'll see, perhaps when I get the opportunity to scan in my stuff sometime, I might show some of the sketches, hehe. They are nothing great though, very loose stuff, really.

And hey now, twice in two weeks isn't all thaaat bad =P that should not stop you from being productive :D

Well, in that case, I wish you some free time. And I'm not terribly bothered if they are "loose stuff". One man's "loose stuff" may very well be another man's masterpiece. And, I'm in need of some inspiration xD

Well, it is, considering that I lost the majority of my data, including Maya, Photoshop, RealFlow, and a myriad of other applications. I had to get a new harddrive, after all...
Then again, once summer comes, I hope to be back and ready to make "art" xD

Good to hear from you again, Dancakes! c:
I'd love to see some of those sketches, but I know being scanner-less kind of makes that a bit impossible. :giggle:

And life has actually been treating me quite kindly, for once! :aww:
memod Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2009  Professional
Well that's great to hear, I'm glad things are going fine for you :aww:

And yeah, without a scanner it's all a bit difficult :lol:
Jonas72 Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2009
Well, always good to hear from you. Why not post some of your sketches, then? ;)

By the way, "Dancakes"? Hardly a manly man's name, now is it? :D See ya, Dancakes! ;)
memod Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2009  Professional
I don't have a scanner, hehe, and they're really just for me to explore ideas. They're very rough, I am not sure if most people would even read them the way I intended :lol:

Hehe hey now, I like my nickname :D Someone here on dA actually gave it to me a long time ago, and now even my website is! :D

Oh by the way, plenty of these thumbs feature bridges :giggle:
Jonas72 Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2009
Have you seen these so-called sketch dumps some deviants do? I love those. Which is what I had in mind. But of course, without a scanner, there really is no point in me nagging. ;)

Now, I didn't say anything about liking or disliking your nickname, I merely pointed out that it lacks something in the area of manliness. As the saying goes: "Whatever rocks your boat..." :D

Now I wanna see your thumbs even more! Or at least some finished product with bridges in. :#1:
