G3 and more…

Leave a comment

Remember how I mentioned a new name for my webcomic yesterday? After some thinking and googling, I came up with a short, simple name for my webcomic. G3. A new site will follow, and I’ll probably have it up and running by Monday. I finally got the hang of inking, and colored this picture in Photoshop CS2. If you squint, it almost looks good.

By the way, I also tried out WordPress 2.5.1, and it utterly sucks. The dashboard looks so unprofessional, and it just looks unfinished. Even though my WordPress 2.3.1 is pestering me to update, I’m not doing it until they improve the quality of WordPress 2.5.1.

Meh…

Things seem to be looking up… finally! I might be getting paid within these next few days, and I have a 3-day weekend ahead of me. Plus my Chemistry teacher was absent, so it was like having 2 free periods… because I didn’t even bother doing the work that the substitute assigned us. My allergies are finally letting up, and I’ve been drawing these past few days, and getting way better at inking. I’ll post some examples of my newfound inking skills tomorrow. I also seem to be getting the hang of Cinema 4D, with all of its complexities.

I’m finally going to start updating my comic regularly as soon as I get my Wacom Bamboo (large version). In the meantime, I’m breaking the comic away from my site. Now, the comic will have its own site, and its own domain (as soon as I can scrap up $10 on PayPal). More news on that tomorrow…

Claritin, 3D, and iMacs…

Spring really sucks, with these relentless allergies and all… I’ve been dosed up on Claritin for about a week now… And I’m running out…

Anyway, my school got a new iMac for Photoshop class. It’s a 24 inch iMac, with 4gb of RAM and a 2.4 ghz Intel Core2 Duo processor. The screen is absolutely gorgeous, and I can’t wait to install CS3 on it.

I’ve also done a project recently, and I made a really good-looking plant thing in Cinema 4D. Here it is below:

Some Recent Work…

I’ve been busy… with web design. I finished the front-end for gumgames.net… (I feel like I’ve already mentioned it before…), and I redid my web design site. G0 here if you want to see it. It’s definitely a break from my traditional designs…

A Small Update

4 Comments

For the first time in several months, a new comic is up. Don’t expect any new ones anytime soon, though. Since the demise of my graphics tablet, I had to draw this in Flash, using a mouse. It took about 6 hours of hard work to make this comic. I might get a cheap Wacom tablet soon, to fill the void until I get my hands on a Cintiq.

In other news, the AP exam wasn’t too hard. The essay part is what was really hard, due to the large amount of handwriting required. I normally write very big, and in script, but since I had to write legibly, I had to write 7 pages in small print, which left my hand feeling sore for about a day after the exam. I also got a pass excusing me from the whole day, even from the classes the AP exam didn’t overlap. Now I’m really pissed at my parents, because they made me go and sit through 2 hours of shit crap trash boredom retardation Chemistry. When I came into Chem on that day, the teacher decided to give a pop quiz. Since I wasn’t even planning on coming to school that day, I was totally unprepared for it. Now the idiot didn’t want to hear any of it, and I still had to take the quiz. Out of 20 questions, I got 3 right. Out of a 100, I got a 15. Wonderful. At least English class wasn’t that bad…

Also, I bought a mouse today. It’s a Logitech wireless mouse. I could have bought a Bluetooth Mighty Mouse from Apple, but that would cost me $70. My Logitech mouse cost me $30, and it works just as well, and also has side-scrolling. I may be a Mac fan, but I’m not an idiot.

AP exam tomorrow…

I have an AP Western Civ exam tomorrow. Am I worried? Not in the least. I could technically miss periods 2-4 (that’s B-D bands in Murrow lingo), but my parents are making me go… I can’t wait until I’m 18, so I can get as far away from my parents as possible.  Anyway, I’m going to have to actually go and sit through 2 hours of Chemistry. I hate Chemistry so much… I just wish I could go back in time and stop myself from picking this dumb course. Maybe I ought to make a “I don’t want to be here” sign and put it on my desk…. Hehe… sounds like a good idea. I’m sure the teacher would just love that…

Then there’s the Spanish oral regents, on 5/15/2008. Then, there’s the SAT II and the Regents in June. And today, I got my rejection letter from the job I applied to. Maybe I should start collecting these rejection letters and preserve them for posterity. I drew so much in these past few days, and I think I’m getting way better at inking. I still have to go and hunt for a job to get that Wacom Cintiq that I want. Check in the art section for the new pictures.
