But I got an email yesterday, and apparently I got into the school I’ve so far only dreamt about getting into. And I scored 14,39 / 15 points in the entrance examination (aka. test).
Now excuse me while I go on a rabid apartment hunt since I pretty much have to move on the other side of the country in early august…
I’m going to start my adventure to become an Artisan of Ancient Technology in the next 2,5 years!
but mashed, they’re PURPLE??
AND WHEN SKINNED, WE SEE THE INSIDES ARE GREEN?????
WHAT THE EVERLIVING FUCK, BLUEBERRIES?!
I wanted to have a try at a belt pouch /satchel for re-enactment use, and well, it turned out better than I expected it to, to be honest. I’ll search the summer markets for some nice viking-age shinies to add onto this, and gift this to my friend, me thinks.
Maybe I’ll even actually plan before sticking my scissors into the leather the next time I make one of these, It could use some minor improvements.
Here’s my friend having a break from sewing last weekend. Needless to say we managed to work hard AND have fun. In just 4 days we turned 5 meters of linen, 3 meters of purple wool, and 5 meters of dark grey wool into a undergarment-dress, apron dress and a half-circular cape. All hand-sewn. By the end of all the work my friend had 5 fingertips covered with band-aids, but she did learn how to sew by hand, and got herself her first re-enactment outfit; so it’s a win-win I’d say!
And she left all the leftovers and scraps of the cloths to me, oh boy! I need to make her something nice in return for all that.
So I found out that Sculptris is free and a lot lighter to use than zbrush. So I spent 30mins thinking how does it work, while turning a solid ball into this random… uhm, reptilish(?) creature. I have this tingling feeling that Sculptris and I will become friends. Everyone should give this program a try, it’s ridiculously fun!
I’ve never tried digital sculpting before, and I’m blown away how much fun it is :D!
…that there’s nobody around when I decide to go on a cooking/cleaning rampage. I mean making cabbage stew and tiger cake while drinking beer, randomly wandering around the house half naked with a wet mop in the other hand; and of course epic folk metal blasting from my PC speakers on the background.
So uhm… anyone wanna come over for some stew and/or cake? The house is clean(for once!) and there miiight be a bit of that beer in the stew. Maybe.
I finally got motivation to do the Moon to accompany the Sun I painted before. A bit shaky photos since these won’t fit into my scanner.
Ink and aquarelles were used :)
I found these thin slices of wood on the spring market for just a few euros, and I immediately thought that I could try painting something on them. Here’s the rather quickly done test! (I haven’t touched my acrylics for yeaaars…)
I almost gave up with this when I started putting the colours in with aquarelles, and I realised that I made the lineart with non waterproof ink, and the lines started to bleed everywhere… =_=;
I have the twin picture for this sketched up aswell, although it still needs some finetuning to be made.
I had a helper for cleaning and sorting out the kitchen cabinets… and apparently he thought that this one was fine just like this :D
I’m just gonna leave this here…
To be honest I’m kinda full of the whole harlem shake thing by now, but this one… This one is in it’s own league of awesome.
I haven’t done anything on actual paper for so long… too long! This was a quick test of my new purple ink alongside the revival for my old black ink :)
Used a sponge and one rather tiny flat paintbrush
