It's been a long time since my last journal entry, so I thought I'd talk a bit about what's been going on with me.
The biggest news ofcourse is that I'm now dating the lovely *YaminaYugineAtema. We already knew eachother for a quite a while as *MangoGloor is a mutual friend. We mainly saw eachother at birthday parties and I think we were picking up some definite hints from eachother for a quite a while.
Now, I'm kind of a shy and awkward person, so I wasn't sure what to do. I didnt really know her all that well, I didn't know if we would click. But after hearing *MangoGloor say that we were really cute together, I decided to go for it.
At first I was just going to invite her to come with us on the safari weekend I won ([link]), but we got chatting and I ended up inviting her over to my place to watch some movies. Well, things sparked, one thing led to another, and by the end of the day we were dating.
It was awkward for a while, as both of us don't really have a lot of self-confidence. But I'm happy to say that we've been together almost 3 months, and we're doing better than ever. I love her very much and I hope that we'll be together for a long time. <3
What else has been going on? Well, *MangoGloor and I concluded our internship at the high school in Rotterdam. It was very tough on us, because we had to get up very early and travel a long way. Not to mention having to deal with some very difficult teenagers. But in the end we learned a lot and we came out better teachers than we were before.
I also managed to get through my second (really third) year of art school. Sorta... I do have to redo a lot of things at the end of the month if I want to pass. But I'm confident it's going to turn out alright.
In my spare time I've been making a lot of progress on my science-fiction comic "On The Edge". It's still very much in the planning phase, but I'm really starting to flesh out the story and characters. I hope I can show some significant updates soon. A lot of my time is spent on homework and assignments, but I hope that I can make more time for the comic soon.
Well, that's about all from me. I really should try to update more often.
P.S.: One of the assignments I'm working on involves depicting motion in 2D work. Dynamic poses, the depiction of speed and action, that sort of thing. If anyone has any tips or advice, or knows of any references that might be useful, please let me know. Thanks in advance!
