Finally returned to Finland, among all the regular ice and the usual white crap. At least here's sauna and expensive-ass alcohol to fix any possible problem. I'm getting my internet fully back online in March 11th. Using my phone to get in touch with you at the moment, but that shouldn't keep me. I can hopefully resume my intended art practices now.
My initial idea, around six months ago, was to drag all my heavy-duty art equipment with me to Japan and work from there with a steady pace, but after considering the astronomical costs involved in the feat of hauling everything on a plane/boat I decided to cut back and bring with me a Photoshop-able laptop and the loathed "postcard"-tablet I regrettably had to buy early last year for an art emergency.
Student budget is depressing am I right? Still, some art was made to be finished back home.
I managed to do some traditional scribbles on locally purchased sketchbooks that I also need to clean up and paint digitally when the chance arises. Again, haven't done anything proper on paper circa "rock and stick". Could be worth looking into as most of the concepts in traditional craft apply to digital after all. Currently though, I'm thinking of starting some fresh project with Cintiq.
Like it always seems, I have tons of art related ideas, but oddly enough lack the proper time to dwell further into said ideas. I want to provide something a bit more refined if not straight out better content. Not just quick, random doodles. Requires me to plan my schedule accordingly.
I'm awfully tempted to start a small comic, but I always end up making some small and entertaining concept into a huge, never-ending epic that completely demoralizes me before I can even begin. I need to start small and hammer that into my head.
Also something warham grimdark and gothic~
