Resolutions for 2010:
- Honestly, just get on with post-grad applications. If you don't make it, you don't make it--that's all.
- Stop procrastinating and get some pages of porn done. Or something.
- Be a good human to my cat.
- Be a better human to family, friends and colleagues.
- Try harder at most things. (Including signing up for that mini-marathon.)

My new air compressor came. Yay--birthday gift to myself!
(This is not an attempt to rationalise or justify a purchase. This is not an attempt to rationalise or justify a purchase . . .)

I am mildly peeved. You don't buy something off a seller on eBay and then not pay and not respond to any emails/messages for two weeks and counting. It's not funny when the seller is incurring eBay fees for items sold but not paid for. (And do I get a refund on those fees when everything's been settled? No--I get eBay credits instead.) I know it's not a huge amount but it's the principle of the thing, dammit. Grrr.
Airbrushing is an expensive hobby. And damn frustrating when you are trying to find the right adapter nut to screw onto the compressor in order to rig up various airbrushes. Hooking up the copic airbrush to the compressor still eludes me because the adapter nuts are the wrong size for the airhose. (Wah, so technical!) Need to plan this better . . .

Backgrounds. Apparently, some artists hate them and other love them.
Which is understandable as objects in the background have to meet up on the 2-D surfaces of traditional medium and therefore led to some (a lot of) hassle in inking/colouring. Digital media has the option of superimposing characters on backgrounds or colouring in backgrounds without actually touching the main point of the image.
A lot of doujinshi seems to be the former case. Backgrounds get in the way of focusing on the main characters and doujinshi are essentially character-driven fanarts. But it takes a little extra to make the blank spaces say something.
And so I will buy Rock'n'Dolless (Himemiko) doujinshi, because she knows what the blank spaces are for and when to slot in the backgrounds. (Me and everyone else on Yahoo!Japan auctions apparently. The sellers are making a pretty packet off us.)

I have no time. I want to draw, create, do something. I have editing duties on some project. I have been procrastinating.
I am tired.
I am on Mercilon again (Tuesday's tab) and the world is not so full of shit anymore for 21 more days.
I will do up a Zettai Fukujuu Meirei Guide once I have time. Soon. Please let it be soon.
