Lost and Found by Tiaricale
Lost and Found
A sketch (A 4 hours sketch T__T - I really need to get back to drawing). I would add the background later... if I ever get it decently done.... I also wanted to fix the mother of the little girl. Something about her shoulders are just off.

Yesterday at the supermarket, I saw a mother walking with her two daughters down the vegetable aisle. The girls in school uniforms attracted my attention by their jovial but quiet chatter as they queued to weigh the vegetables. Some time after, as I was choosing tomatoes, I heard a cry and found a little girl, about five, was screaming for her mother. A few people walked past her with a fleeting glance. One man eyed around for the mother but when nobody responded to the screams, he bit his lips and walked away.

I wanted to help her but was pulled back by indecisiveness. With all the kidnapping problems and traps (planting a crying kid and later have them to accuse whoever trying to help of kidnapping), I wasn't sure of how to approach the situation. As I was about to turn and call for my mom, the lady approached the kid with her daughters shyly tagging behind. After a bit of coaxing, she took the kid to the information counter and about five minutes later, I saw the girl again with a lady who I presume is her mother.

Mom said that she shouldn't have taken the child herself to avoid misunderstanding but to call an employee and if you don't trust them, to simply follow them to the information counter and wait with them until the child is reunited with the parent. But the kind lady probably acted on impulse and her motherly instinct. She went out of the way and spend the time to help the little girl. It wasn't a wise decision but it came straight from her heart.

To any of your curious people, the blue uniform is the prefectorial uniform and the green uniform is the librarian uniform (the only thing missing from the uniforms were the blazers but I guess it was way too hot after half a day having them on in school). Both are the standard uniforms for public primary schools.

Sketch

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 25, 2015, 2:27 PM
I have a sketch. A nice one. But I've been spending hours trying to get a decent effect from it.

I still need to work on digital art I guess. It isn't as easy as it seems *sigh*

Not that traditional art is much easier (heh) but it seems like the tablet - screen coordination kinda ruins my orientation. 

Also, my hand tends to be... unsteadier. Not too sure how does that happen. Tablet-screen coordination too maybe?

A quick sketch of my sister. As promised, I've managed to get something done and it's the first complete work on my tablet. Not exactly something I'm incredibly proud of but I'm really, really happy with how my sister turned out. About the background - well, what can I say? I'm a total failure when it comes to backgrounds. It's supposed to be some surreal fantasy-like land which my sister seem to be constantly pulled into and she isn't scared to leave the safer ground to venture out into an even fuzzier land.

Interestingly though, once she steps into real life, she would stop venturing, stand her ground and refuse to budge. If you try to nudge her further, she would probably give you a piercing glare ^^;

She was wearing a striped overcoat over a short pink dress that is was too short for her that it looks like a blouse (she probably wore it since she was seven and apparently loves it too much to put it away). And yes, her hijab is pulled off one shoulder. She simply doesn't care xD

And I'm not sure if it's in the right category but I'm not sure where it fits either.

An Apology

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 19, 2015, 1:41 PM
I'm sure it feels so familiar now. Me saying that I would get back and yet I didn't.

Real life is getting pretty exhausting now because there's some major event happening here within my family which I don't really feel comfortable mentioning but it upsets schedule and such.

On one hand, it is good. Good that I get more free time and because everyone is busy, I am more free to do what I want to do.

On the other hand, it decapitates me in some ways. I have more work to get done myself so even though I don't have eyes on me, I still need to do my work. I've made the mistake of delaying it and exhausted myself with a grand compilation of things to get done - things that require physical effort. It feels like I'm tearing my whole body apart. It's good for training, I dare say but it upsets my balance and end up messing up my schedule and that in turn messes up everything else.

And it's not that I didn't try. I did make lots of attempts on making an art piece but none of them reaches anywhere near satisfying. During the time I more or less took a hiatus from art, it seems that my personal standard for myself, the level I labelled as 'par', rose astronomically. Maybe it's my detachment from making something of my own and watching others instead that changes me so.

I once won a small art contest in my school just because of my attitude (not that my work was bad but I was sure at least one girl did far better than I did). I never took a glance at my friends' works and instead worked steadily on my own. The teacher said that I was sure of my capabilities, knew my limits and was confident in getting what I want to get. Apparently paying attention to their own work and nothing else was rare for a ten years old because everyone else kept on groaning and glancing that it got onto my nerves.

To be honest though, I wasn't really all that confident... or focused (well maybe focused but on something else). I was simply economical. I knew that I only had one short hour to make my work the best that I could do so I don't fret and waste my time. I just do it. My focus was 60% on the time I spent, 30% on my art and 10% on calming myself down so I would not strangle the next person who looked over my shoulder.

And well maybe I was confident but the reason for that confidence wasn't the sureness in myself - it was pure logic. Doubts are like friction. They waste time, they slow you down.

As you can see, while it is very hard for me to get me to work on an art piece and appreciate it, I can write practically anything and be contented with what I wrote. It is the art closer to me I dare say.

Alright, I actually have an assignment to get over. One that takes a hefty amount of research. I just hope my decision to join Law school does not mean that it would be twice this bad. I hope that this is just my mother taking it into herself that she should prepare me for Law school because she did study Law once... before things turn wrong.

And also, I am currently rewriting the whole Backwater Opera. Well, editing really but I've grown from the writing style I adhered to then and yet TNT rejected the admission last time so I need to edit it if I want to get it in. And I do because it's the prose piece I am most proud of up till now and I would forever thank Ellie for the opportunity to co-write it with him (and although the words in the final pieces are mostly mine, he actually wrote the whole backbone of eleven thousand words. Two NaNoWriMo's later proves that I still have problems with creating a proper story line).

And with that, I promise to post something up tomorrow and if I do not want to embarrass myself by posting one of the pathetic pieces I made during the past few weeks, I have to whip up something decent.

Wonder what would that be...

Thanks for everything guys :)

Happy New Year!

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 3, 2015, 9:57 AM
The new year of 2015 has kicked off with a bang for me, thanks to :icondeorse: (go see his amazing art). Although I am more than incredibly happy and honoured to receive this gift, I guess I've never planned on becoming a premium member so now that I have it, I feel as lost as a coffee-hyped person having to plan out their day (okay, I admit... it definitely sounds like a coffee-hyped me).

I think I have not mentioned it but several months ago, I have finally get back my martial arts lesson (that story of how I lost it is too long to be explained in this short journal piece) and as my New Year Resolution, I promised myself that I would  dedicate more time to practicing and working out. Since my house is under major renovation, I only have a few stuff hanging around. The rest (that includes most of my pencils, paints, books and papers) have been stashed into boxes, labelled and packed - not to be opened until the renovation is over. Considering all the factors, I figured I would take a break from visual arts.

But now it seems like I have to come back on and often to make full use of my membership ^^ It is also a brilliant opportunity for me to try out the tablet my dad gave me last month. I still haven't got the hang of using a tablet though. There are things which I like about a tablet but the techniques of digital art is just so, so different from a traditional one. Sometimes I really wish martial arts could somehow be translated to the computer so I could put something up on my lazy days :P

I may have trouble with uploading artworks with all the repairs and such going on sometimes the connection gets cut off, but I'll try my best to find something... no matter how lame... to be put up here.

Again and again thank you so much for the membership. Deorse :D


Happy New Year to all of you wonderful people :)
May this year bring us all heaps of fortune and goodwill
