I've still not had a chance to stop and catch my breath, I've got summer school now to prepare which is a huge thing here, some children are even given it as birthday presents! O:

Japan is immensely hard working, but for all their hard work they do know how to play hard too! I've had a lot of fun, made new friends, been exhausted running to stations, had brilliant students and other students who are more content rolling around on the floor? :p

So, here are some photos!

Right outside my apartment, you can hear the frogs chirping at night!

Me being a tourist in Sendai, I've still not had chance to actually go around, this was after a long day at a big meeting, so I'm tired! :P

I've had chance to meet some friends too! I've tried karaoke! I've made lots of friends who are from all over, England, Ireland, Germany, Czech, America, Japan, France, some more but I forget :p

I cant wait to get back to drawing, get my laptop up and running and finally paint. You have no idea what 4 weeks of hard work and no drawing does to me!!

Thats all for now :D

Now you have Japan as your country, people will assume you're Asian considering that you have amazing artistic skills. If you know what I mean. :iconteheeyesplz:

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!!!

With the forum "judging by icon what kind of person you are", you asked me how you did it,
You did great, everything was correct except the whole planning thing, however I do want to be like that xD

BTW you are a great person - just saying what pops into my mind! :D
