My latest art. Not necessarily my greatest. Check out my gallery to view my featured art!

[also available as a post on tumblr]

Next year I'm going to be in Studio Art. If I so choose, I will be bumped up to AP Studio Art. I'm a special exception in the art department for two reasons:

1. I am under-qualified. One is supposed to have taken at least two years of drawing and painting (up through drawing and painting 3/4), and I only took a semester of drawing and painting 1. The drawing and painting teacher and the department head were impressed enough by my personal portfolio that they have gladly let me into the program.

2. I am a digital artist. The school has never accommodated a digital artist in this class before. I will be working with my tablet laptop the entire time, and the drawing and painting teacher (who teaches AP/Studio Art) will be taking a creative challenge in overseeing her first digital artist in Studio Art.


Studio Art requires a minimum of 24 pieces of exceptional work by May. I will be required to create a minimum of two exceptional works every six weeks.

I will be fitting the criteria of two categories: focus and breadth. For focus, minimum of 12 of my pieces will be following a specific theme, like oceans or glass shattering or fight scenes. Each of these must be exceptional and group together recognizably (they must all clearly fit with one another). For breadth, I must demonstrate through twelve distinct pieces the diversity of my skills. Taking new challenges, different approaches, etc. Demonstrating an array of artistic skills.

In addition, I need to complete two pieces over summer.


Given my schedule for next year, this all seems very doable. Summer may be a little bit of a challenge initially, given that I will be in Germany under an exchange program for the first four weeks of vacation, but I'm sure I will be able to do so once I sort it out. Often the one thing stopping me from working on art in my free time is the presence of homework that needs to be completed. Now I'll be able to work on art in the context of school and homework, and since I love working on art, next year looks like it's going to be great.


Expect at least 24 great works form me next year!

Sorry for having to reply here, but *Major-Man baww-locked me so the conversation is forced to move elsewhere and I won't be able to comment on her journals, too. Oh well, I don't even really want to comment on her endless flow of miserable mass-media based sad excuse for high moral childish shit, in fact I hate it, but it's good to have this kind of stuff on my group. I didn't even read that her journal in question, to be perfectly honest. So anyway,

Yeah I kinda guessed that you were using Windows XP (since Windows 6.0 and newer had antialiasing all right). If you wanted it to make silly, you could've used stuff like "hackerOS v1.3.37-1aB" and such. And for flashing underscore, it was enough to simply use the flashing underscore, why the whole word? But flaming or not, that was a valid opinion, deal with it. You do not just discard whatever you don't like how it sounds to you.

You were 13 three yeaers ago, therefore you're 16, that isn't much of an improvement in terms of idiocity actually, since lack of common sense would now have vast overestimating of self intelligence and capabilities on top, at that age.

But really, an autenthetic terminal skin wouldn't need so much of a distinguishing features, it's enough to use monospaced font, period. Check out gnome-terminal, for example. Unless you want old-piece-of-crap autenthetic terminal, but then you'd needed bitmap fonts which are impossible to use with any kind of browser.

All valid points. At the time, I had not considered simply formatting the button text and setting the flashing underscore as the background, but again, thirteen. I'm honestly surprised how popular that journal skin even got. The only real cause of the skin issues was the idiocy that comes bundled with the grand old age of thirteen. I might remake the skin sometime this week, if I get bored enough.

I was never upset at anything you said, I was just concerned that your opinions didn't get taken to heart by *Major-Man. Some people just prefer leaving a discussion to taking the logical approach. It's kind of sad, really. All I meant by how your comments may be perceived is that it probably had little effect on the one you had it directed towards originally. I doubt that he will consider your advice if and when he chooses to use a less lame journal skin. The real sad thing here is that my journal skin is still the only solution for CSS-impaired individuals looking for an even slightly authentic terminal look, from what I've seen.
