Another update, to keep in touch with myself. It's been a while since my last update.

I'm still suffering from some neck and back pain. I don't tell anyone about it because they would say that it's because of stress and quite honestly I sure as heck don't feel stressed, at least not right now. It's been so long since I felt totally OK that I don't even remember what it is like (not joking, I think of my past life and it feels like a joke how happy I used to be). I'm not saying I feel bad now, I'm just saying I feel like something is amiss. Must be the remains of the anxiety crisis I suffered some years ago and for which I never achieved closure.

My grandma died last year, close to December, and it sucks. I really loved her a lot and it was something totally unexpected. I miss her a lot and my Fridays haven't been the same since then. I made it an habit to visit her on Fridays since 2008, and it really felt like the highlight of the week for me. There is a hole in my heart and it hasn't been filled yet.

I'm finally doing the kind of work I love at my job: programming. I love making interfaces, making programs and building things. People say I'm really good at it and that makes me happy, because I've been a little mediocre with my other endeavors.

I mentioned last time I has going to update my graphics card. I did, I bought a GTX 970. The thing is a beast, but still I have to thinker with settings and there are some games that just won't perform OK (I'm looking at you Watch Dogs).

The last movie I saw was Peanuts and I loved it, even if my favorite character (Peppermint Patty) wasn't featured a lot. It's funny how much I related to Charlie Brown in that movie, I'm totally clueless with girls (on a sentimental level) and I usually feel like I can't accomplish many things.

I think that's all for now. I'll try to write once every month, if just as a way to see how things are going on for me and because it's fun to read these later.

I've switched buildings again. Let me explain. My workplace got two buildings and depending on the project I'm working on I have to move between them. Right now I'm on the "secondary" building, were I've spent most of my time since I got employed.

I usually keep tracks of "last times". Like when it is the end of the year I keep joking "this is the last song of the year", "this is the last movie I see in this year", "this is the last time I go to the bathroom". Well, I had my last chance to be on the "primary" building, I don't think I will be returning to it full-time ever again. And now this is the last time I'll be on the "secondary" building.

That's because we will be moving to a single, bigger building in the near future (the current ones are going to be sold). I have some good memories and some terrible memories (the worst days of my life) in this building, and it's gonna be weird seeing it and no longer being able to enter it.

Changing the subject, I said sometime ago that I wanted to upgrade my graphics card. I'm still considering the GTX 970 (the Radeon 390 seems like a great option but I just don't have the PSU to support it). I hope to get the new card next month, I will be playing FarCry 4, Watch Dogs, Battlefield 4, Bioshock Infinite (with settings to the max!), and once they are released, Metal Gear Solid V, Fallout 4 and Mad Max. Also Batman Arkham Knight once it gets fixed.

I'm thinking about moving out of my house. I'm way old to keep living with my parents. It would have been great to do it after getting married but seeing how I need a girlfriend to do that, then I suppose that's not really an option. I tend to plan a lot of things and getting nothing done, I hope the same thing doesn't happen this time.
Still unnamed girl, again by ghost085
Still unnamed girl, again
One of my characters. I haven't named her yet.

I vectorized the lineart for this drawing a year ago. I tried to color it back then but it just wasn't working so I abandoned it. This week I decided to retake it and this is the result. It featured two characters originally, but I decided to split the image and leave only one.

STATS:
Lineart:    done with Inkscape using powernodes. They are good but a little messy sometimes.
Shading:  done with Gimp. I used like 16 layers. I think I have to be more efficient on that regard.

Hit DOWNLOAD to get the full res version.

Another drawing from an old sketch. I like how this one has sharper shading, I think my others drawings where a little too soft, to the point were there was no definition on their features. And I like how this compares to the pencil sketch, I think I translated most of the ideas correctly (shading with a mouse is difficult).

Oh, and I know, "way to cheap it on the feet". I was feeling lazy (big surprise) and felt like drawing them.

I hope you guys like it.

FINAL STATS:
Sketch: I think it was like 2 hours (I drew it more than 3 years ago)
Lineart: done with DrawPlus X5 in 2 hours
Shading: done with Gimp in about 4 hours

Hello! by ghost085
Hello!
Another old drawing. I love girls with short hair.

The outline was done in the PaintTool SAI demo. Just wanted to try it because I found out it allows you to draw lines with variable width. It's not exactly like drawing with vectors and I don't think I'll be using it again for lineart. The program is great, but I think it's too advanced for my needs.

The colouring was done in GIMP. I applied a couple of effects: I added some chromatic aberration just because, but I won't be using it again. Then I added some noise to simulate a printed source. I think it looks good.

Oh, and another detail, I coloured the outline. It makes the drawing look softer.

Well, thanx for all your favs :)

I have almost forgotten Teen Titans at all. Almost. I still come up with some jokes, but I don't feel encouraged enough to draw them.

Shame one me, I used to be so hardcore when it came to Teen Titans.

You're welcome. :lol:

Well I had practically forgotten their existence, but then I found a place where you can watch all the episodes online and got really into it again. :XD:

Thanks for the inspiration all the same. :)
