Snow by Self-Epidemic
Snow
I can't paint digitally anymore due to my work hours, commutes etc. So I did a painting, this is my first traditional painting since I was 16 years old. I'm 24 if that helps :P

So, anyway. I can't be apart of this community often now because of time constraints, work, hours and having to study, but I do miss having the free time I used too. I'm very rarely on the internet, and when I am its my phone ( Thank god Japan has fantastic internet for mobile phones!)

My job is really enjoyable, but a type of exhaustion I can't explain. Working on games for 13+ hours a day doesn't really take out of me what looking after my classes for the day does. 

So I'm discovering other mediums to keep me sane. 

This is a gauche-acrylic blend, painted with a square brush and a small round brush for borders. 

A few errors, but give a girl a break, first time I've done any "real" painting ;)

I'm also going to be doing my JLPT exam at Christmas time! Exciting :) I have obon off ( A holiday for morning and remembering your family, I think C: ) and so I have a few days to actually draw and catch up.

I've got parents observation this month too so its going to be a bit more hard work than usual, however after that I should be able to start fitting more things in my days than just working.

I really like Japan, I had a meeting yesterday and it was so upbeat and fun, the work can be hard and tiring, its not a "sit in front of a computer" tiring, its a "omg I've been running around for hours encouraging kids to scream and shout and dance" etc, which, makes my lessons hilarious but exhausting as hell. 

Still, I've met some really nice mothers who gave me food and are really sweet and kind, summer school was hilariously fun, and because it was the same 3 lessons for different schools I just got to have fun and do no prep, which is quite relaxing! 

So yes, I need to do some drawing, buut right now there is no food in my house so I better buy some food before I get the evil shakes!
I've been very miserable recently, and I've had no time to draw, or, well do anything but whatever.

Anyway, I need some practice. I may or may not draw your characters but can you link any you would want drawn? If I do, I'll link you, I just need some motivation.

Post anything, the worst I'll say is no :')
Moving from the uk to japan the heat can be pretty exhausting, I've had no time to do anything so my apartment still looks like I've just moved in and I'm working 6 day weeks and a minimum of 8 hours though usually more.

obon is coming up soon which is a holiday where you look after your families graces and you go to parks and stuff so there's that but, like, that means I lose all my normal weekdays to give me that holiday off (we have to work a minimum and even a public holiday means working extra to fill it all in)

But I did just feel a breeze and I love my job, so there's that.

Janie, 

Long time no see! Ever since we had that talk about digital painting I've been painting practicing ever since. I hope you don't mind if I ask again for some tips on painting:

What do you need to keep in mind when trying to blend in colors from your surroundings to keep it life like and not "too blended in/blurred out"? Any more tips?


Thanks in advance! And once again thank you for your critique AND those brushes! They have really helped me along!!!
