I put this together three years ago (September 5th, 2018 according to properties) … My brothers are right – my artwork looked much better in the past, before my depressive psychosis fully developed, and I lost concentration on the simplest of tasks. I just need to discipline myself to make more art, and actually spend more time on each art piece as well, instead of doing everything at the deadline, or in a couple of hours before I can’t focus anymore. 😅
I updated my Instagram with this snapshot and description last Thursday (August 26th);
“Attending a free art webinar creating fantasy art with Corel Painter, the teacher is named Davey Baker. I have a really old version of Corel Painter Essentials, and think about getting the latest Corel Painter, since I know Rob likes Corel Painter, he’s used free trials, and done some impressive paintings with it! My best paintings were done with Corel Painter too, on this note. I’m getting a new laptop soon courtesy of my boss, so I’ll probably wait until then to get the new Corel Painter. The character on the screen reminds me of my sensei, Yoshimitsu. “
Tbh I barely understood it, haha! All this talk about a “glow” brush and such, must be from the newer Corel Painters, but I assume tis similar to Photoshop Element’s “burn” brush or something. 😅
(I’m also struggling with concentration lately due to being clinically depressed, tho.)
Ciao ciao for now!
~*I’d love to walk away and pull myself out of the rain
But I can’t leave without you
I’d love to live without the constant fear and endless doubt
But I can’t live without you*~
Having a lot of feels about this song (particularly this version, which I’m captivated by) … Strange thing, coincidences that come in threes … So I associate this song with Yoshimitsu-sensei from the Soul Calibur video games: Yoshimitsu I, that is – “my” Yoshi-san – and thus, our OC Puck-sensei who was inspired by Yoshi-sensei when we wrote a crossover series between our main graphic novel story and SC (Puck-sensei is what Yoshimitsu-sensei is renamed to from my SC fanfics that I’m also adapting into an original graphic novel too) … And today I’ve been listening to this song, and saw that the Yoshimitsu fansite is going to re-open on December 8th, so roughly a little over 100 days from now – okay, I can wait … Then I noticed when going back to edit stuff on my art blog that I had uploaded the pic of “Puck’s Shadow” on December 8th 2019 … Kinda odd, but okay … then just now to share this song after listening to it on repeat for hours and hours, I looked it up to copy the lyrics from the original recording, and saw that the “My Immortal” single from Fallen was released on December 8th 2003 … If you read through all that – thanks! I have NO IDEA what any of it means, but … WOW! Funny cos I mentioned how most things seem to “come in threes” just the other day to Micky.
My homemade Soul Calibur OC, Sha-mitsu, in an AU with Yoshimitsu from Tekken, pleading with her sensei to not leave, since she worries about him when he’s gone. This was inspired by an image of a woman with a samurai, and comes across as a wee bit romantic to some!
