It's been another week and another Senshi Princess with her Castle has been uploaded! This weeks Princess is Saturn with my version of Titan castle (cuz Naoko Takeuchi never released the castles for Mercury, Mars, Jupiter or Saturn). Next weeks Princess and Castle will be...............drum roll please...............MARS! From there who knows...I dont plan that far in advance.
So currently these three princesses have been drawn (in order from the Sun):
I was kinda nervous that I wouldnt be able to make my Sunday afternoon deadline for this weeks Senshi Princess. Yesterday my mom convinced me to help her pick sweetcorn, and then I was held captive for the rest of the day/evening canning relish corn. Yeah, I wasnt expecting that either. Luckily I had already started the Saturn picture a couple days prior to being conned into corny servitude and could focus on shading the planet, and adding last min alterations. Btw, did anyone notice that Saturns scythe is called Silence Glaive, and the "sickle" end of her staff is a G? I had trouble drawing that sucker and when I noticed that it was a G shape, SUDDENLY it stopped being a problem. XD
Deviantart wise, I changed my avatar to my Cuddles and Raindrops picture (delight046.deviantart.com/art/…. I'm also SUPER behind on DA activities. I have like 377 waiting in my message box, and I really dont feel like going through them all. Normally I go through all of the favorites notifications so that I can see what kind of artists view my art, but....377 of them? o___o'''' Nooo thanks. I will go through and respond to watches and Llamas though. XD
Another side project that I'm doing is checking out inexpensive alternative software to photoshop. I personally love photoshop because I've been using it since... 2009, but I'm wanting to branch out to other freeware programs since I now have a smaller "travel" sized tablet now. YAY FOR HAVING MULTIPLE TABLETS (ps my huge tablet is 11"x14")! Personally I love my older tablet more than my new tablet, but carting it around is a PAIN and a half. Granted I will probably be doing less traveling to town/to other states, but I still want the option to be able to draw wherever I go. Plus maybe I could write up my own review as to what programs are amazing and which are not?
Example: Paint Tool Sai. Tried it in college, hated it. Trying it now (30 day trial), and think it's the best thing EVER (if you like to paint). I'm still "painting" a doodle, and will upload it whenever I get around to completing it. Which will hopefully be in the next 28 days.
I'm still trying to get GIMP to work on my computer, but it doesnt seem to like Window's 8 all that well. Bleh.
I know I promised you guys a general list of what kind of music I have been listening to for inspiration. I dont know why but I've been nurturing an inner rocker girl, so dont turn the volume all the way up. XD BABYMETAL is just soo darn cute and peppy. > I'll also add less rocker songs as well that I use for inspiration. :3
Dont let the piano opening fool you. Keep the volume down or you'll blow an eardrum.
(btw my favorite part starts after 1:58)
(btw Skillet is actually a Christian rock band. XD)
DONT JUDGE ME, I like this song a little too much. XD
Thats all for now folks.
