Getting Back into Color

It has been a while since I've done anything traditional in color. I'm not a huge fan of colored pencils but I have been encouraged to get back into them. I do remember them being one of my most requested medium and thought why not?

I finally got a poinsettia. I had wanted one for a long time as they are very lovely plants. They do need strict care to flower for Christmas. Hopefully I can provide what is needed. I also cut back my geranium. It needed badly; now to try and keep it from getting spindly again. So far keeping it under a light for 14 hours a day isn't working. I only have so many options.

Adobe Draw

I've been testing out drawing apps and I quite like Adobe Illustrator Draw. I'm also testing out Adobe Photoshop Sketch.

College Life Through Photos

I try and always take photos of those little out of place incidences that crop up in day to day life. I have a lot of them that haven't made it onto this blog. Mostly because they have nothing to do with art but I would still like to share the little things I enjoy with you so here is my pick dump.

 From my time in New Mexico

 ^My Mobile Project
 ^From Drawing
 ^Why someone felt the need to put so many 
flowers in an art book I'll never know.
 ^And why are their chickens in town?

 ^My roommate asked me not to pick it up XD

^I'm a huge fan of bugs!

Magic the Goat

I can tell things have been busy since in the last post I didn't even mention the hippies chasing a baby bear in the middle of town. Yep baby bear and hippies. Good times.

Holy Joe

It has been two weeks since I've been back at school and I feel my room is cursed, though my roommate says it is him that is causing all the bad luck. A short run down is his car broke down twice in a week, he shattered at box of glasses moving in, and that is just getting things going. The first weekend I was sick and while I was out getting cold meds it dumped rain for the exact 30 minutes I was gone. Both of us had our windows open. Him with his laptop and printer by the window and me with several power cords. I'm sure there are other little things but for now you get the idea.

Despite all this I can happily say I've found a few much wanted books at the thrift stores in town. I can also add some coffee to the list.

It is also very funny how often you hear people screaming because the sprinklers started going off.

I found a new art program called Krita. I love it right away and in my budget of free. The brushes are fantastic and drool worthy. The filters could use some work. They have a great range of filters and controls but they are buggy. I'm fine with that because they packed a lot into the program so it is understandable that it isn't perfect. I hit one of these bugs while darkening a layer and it added a lot of line static. I decided to go with it and now I want a t-shirt.
