Tainted Talent

iconWhew, I am so glad I am updating within this month! School is crazy busy; this past Sunday I took a seminar with Krystel for the SAT. The presenter was funny in such an oddball nerdy way—here’s an example: “Let’s say when you got in trouble with your parents, you knew your butt was grass and someone else was the lawnmower.” Okay, maybe that’s only funny to me. :XD: Some crazy shit. :yes:
I’ve got some juicy oodle doodles, so I’ll start by presenting them. First up is a new colorization that I submitted for Red Heaven. I haven’t made any art for forever (I don’t count retouches as “art”, even though I put them on the same page), and I’m really happy with the way this color turned out. Then I have a pile of retouches, from neglect of updating about.


I’ve added the first premade layout to Naeolia! Give me some feedback (you don’t have to go download it, just from the preview). So far, one person has already downloaded it, but of course I don’t know who it is. Although I am positively itching to find out (which I probably won’t, unless he/she actually contacts me). x.x

Premade Layout ID: Fly Away

Sitely News: New (old) affiliate, Nadia! I have known her site forever, back when she ran The Butterfly, which Naeolia was also affiliated with. She decided to simplify her online life and set up house at Artphilia. Gorgeous.
And then, LUCY, I am so so so glad Paramour’s back. I was seriously worried about what would happen. :)
Now, I decided to list the top five downloads on Naeolia: 1. Small Text Brushet. 2. Weather Brushet. 3. Water Boxy Brushet. 4. Picture Frames. 5. Butterflies Brushet. ^^
School has just been one long chain of avalanches. I like all my classes, but some of them are really hard to get through. I really hope I can come out of this year with good grades. Maybe it’s a little harsh to restrict myself to straight A’s, which I got last semester. AP’s really kick some busy ass. Here’s my schedule for those of you who are interested:

  • 1st period—Color Guard/Marching Band
  • 2nd period—AP English Language & Composition
  • 3rd period—AP United States History
  • 4th period—Spanish IV AP
  • 5th period—Marine Biology Honors
  • 6th period—Precalculus

On top of that, my choir is superrrrr active this year. I’m going to have to mold my schedule around really well, so as to avoid the least possible conflicts. I’m already missing two classes of the fall semester for sure to take the PSAT and a SAT. And to put the rotting, pruny, moldy cherry on top of Shitload Sundae, I need to get some major community service hours in to round myself out in applications and such. Ack, junior year really hits you hard! :frus: I desperately want to become a Teen Titan. Maybe I could get some Beast Girl powers, turn myself into an elephant, and pile the dung on top of some barely finished homework and hand it to the teacher (who obviously couldn’t accept it; hell, I don’t even want to transport it to school).
Question: What do you think of Lindsay Lohan? (she was the inspiration behind this post’s title)

Photo Flash: Crowded Nice Beach

2 September, 2009 Wednesday // Photo Flash

Crowded French Beach

Wooh, talk about beach bums! It’s like the entire country camped out…no wonder the water’s warm. :XD: I’m pretty sure this is in Nice, France—if I’m incorrect, please tell me! Since summer vacation is now totally over for me, I wanted to put up this photo flash as a memory of sweet, sweet summer. :) In terms of weather though, summer’s not over yet! :D Even down where I live (Southern California), the beach water was pretty good last week. I think it would be kind of gross to be at a beach this packed, however. The best thing I can envision is turning yourself over and landing in a hot guy’s lap. But most likely, his snooty topless girlfriend would be looking down at you with her Chloé sunglasses. x.x Anyway, anyone else had a beach day this crazy before? Leave your funny, weird, sunburned beach anecdotes/escapades below! :love:
