Back to it!

Hello everyone!
I went back to University this week and it was pretty fun. It's weird that a teenager would find learning fun, but I do. I'm doing courses on Modern Art, the practical side of Archaeology, History of the Supernatural and Global History (otherwise known as Big History). I also hope to pick up a sport to do for some physical activity. Look, running everywhere is great and all, but I'm not built to run for more than 400m. So I'm looking at Capoeira, it's a Brazilian martial arts that combines music, acrobatics and dance.
Anyway, I've done some work with Photoshop today and thought I'd post what I did. It's a small series that I am calling 'Schooling'. The cage comes from Google, because for the likes of me I have yet to draw a decent one.

Primary School

High School

My Gap Year. Despite the image, I was not wild and crazy. At least I hope I wasn't...


And all together now!

Anyway, hope you all have a wonderful day! Dad is calling that it's dinner time.

Something old, something new...

And a lack of anything blue (except for the wrapping paper).
Hello all! So recently I just turned 19 ("old" according to my grandma) and after a huge fiasco about the present situation, I got a few gifts. Some new clothes, a create-your-own-monster-doll kit (from family friends), an IOU for a TV (although it has been bought), a trowel, a notebook and a wacon tablet. So I need to get really good at drawing directly onto the computer really, really fast. We went out for lunch to a place called 'Pitchforks' and Mum's cousin (and her family) along with four family friends came over for snacks. We kids, 19 and under, played the board game Cranium. It as a fantastic day!

So here's my first picture using the new tablet. I messed up some of the anatomy, but it's pretty decent.

Anyway, have a wonderful day everyone!
