I had graphite smeared all over my face the other day, because I'm an idiot. I looked like a tribal warrior.
I realised that I haven't updated in a few days. I've been in a bit of a slump I guess you can say. For a while, I was really energetic and passionate and driven about my work, but then suddenly it all came crashing down on me and now I have no idea what do. Because of that, I'm trying to distract myself with other things in an attempt to recharge and listen to music that inspires me in the meantime. I hope it comes back soon :C Maybe I'll ask for advice later on how to get out of this uninspired period!
My painting has been postponed but thankfully I got my tracing pad and graphite pencil set. Now I'm trying to figure out which pencil to use for the tracing sheet. Originally I thought it was a B, but that didn't work out quite so well, so I'm thinking I'll try a 6B and press down hard. Hopefully I'll be successful!
So I'll try to start painting sometime this week, my new deadline is this Saturday. I might be going away for the weekend so I'll bring my art supplies with me if I can. I got this set of watercolour paints from a while ago that I never really got around to using (I don't really have an excuse as to why), but I will soon! It's probably going to take me a while to complete the picture, but I'm sure it'll be very much worth it.
In the meanwhile, I have a doodling book that I got for Christmas that I'm going to use every day, and I'm going to try to draw every day as well. And by that I mean, draw a different thing/character at least once every day. I'm going to do a 30-day challenge for myself. That way I can really improve on my art. I'll also try to implement a writing challenge into my days too, but I've yet to figure that out. Maybe I'll do a thing where I'll write a scene every day, it doesn't matter what or how long it is, just a different scenario every day. Perhaps it'll be beneficial in that it'll give me newer ideas and it'll improve my writing and my storyline as well.
Get ready for a run-on sentence here! Speaking of Pink Floyd, which by the way, is an example of the music that inspires me greatly, I'm going to go see Roger Waters live in concert during the summer, and he's performing The Wall, which by the way is my favourite Floyd album, followed by either Animals or Wish You Were Here and then third place is Dark Side of the Moon. Early Pink Floyd is good too I think. But yeah, Roger Waters! Already I can tell this is going to be a great summer.

It took me a while to write this entry because I was roleplaying with a friend.
