Haven't upload a journal in a while. So hey, update on how I've been!
I mentioned taking a vacation-cruise at the start of my summer last time. That ended up being probably the worst vacation I've ever taken. On-land tours cancelled due to either bad weather or not enough people signing up, a really rough horseback tour that left me with bruises on my legs, and getting seasick and unable to move on the last day of the cruise, due to the fact that the day was all at sea.
I'm over it now, sorta. At the least, I'm certainly not as mad as I was right after the cruise! I don't think I want to go on a cruise anytime soon. :U
So over the summer I took two summer classes, did well, blah blah. Today was the first day of my fall semester, woohoo! I need to get used to having classes all week, it's been a while. Still, I'm glad, because this year I'm taking more classes that are relevant to my specific major! I got all my general education and foundation classes done, I think I'm gonna enjoy this semester!~
Well, the assignments and test will probably prove me wrong. But I still want to stay positive this semester! I feel like I've just been so grumpy and sad the past year or two. Now I want to make a effort to be more positive about myself and my school work. Huzzah!
And maybe be more positive about my art, I dunno. I'm sort of treading the thin line between caring and not caring about my art, and I'm not sure if it's a good thing. Probably not, but just, maybe? :/
EDIT: (copy pasting from a comment below, because I really should had said this before)
Ahh, I should have clarified my little art dilemma! It's not caring in the sense that I'm starting to not like it (I hope not!), but it's more that, I'm caring less if the anatomy's off, or little things look wrong. I'm worried because, I'm slowly trying to transition into a more cartoony style, which of course isn't exactly realistic most of the time, because that's ideally what I want to draw. But at the same time I don't want to end up turning into one of those "I don't need anatomy!!!" jerks that you tend to see on art sites like this.
I mean, I know the idea of "You have to learn the rules before you start breaking them/There's a difference between not knowing anatomy and exaggerating it" is very important, you can see that it is in a lot of artists' work! But then, like... I think I might be trying to rush myself, which is a very bad thing. That, and because I'm not planning on doing art as a career (maybe as a side job sort of thing?), part of me is saying "You don't have to care about this, you're not even gonna make a living off of it", while the other is "NO you should
care, don't give up!" So it's just... BLARGH maybe I should take a drawing vacation. >_<
