Kevin, with cracker

I decided to do a little realism. I wanted to do my brother. He insisted on posing with a graham cracker in his mouth and his elbow on the box. So I put it up today TO EMBARRASS HIM MWAHAHAHAHA!!!
Okay, seriously, this doesn’t look like him at all. Phooey. On the other hand, nice ear.
Thursday I played my Beethoven concerto cadenza like mush – and that was the good part of the concerto. The rest is ‘in shambles’. Then my teacher very nicely drove me to the art gallery where my composition teacher wanted his class to see the ‘beautifulbeautiful artificial field’, an exhibition by an artist who makes sculptures out of fluorescent lights, basically. I liked the photographer’s gallery better, but the other guy was giving a talk on his stuff. I also got a little time to see the Japanese textile exhibition. My heels started to really hurt, but I saw a ‘light sculpture’ that I immediately dubbed “My Tornado is Resting” (look at yer Windows Media Player) because I couldn’t hear what he called it. I also came up with the idea to write a piece for Theramin, lights, and fans. I think I’ll write a nice piece for Theramin first, though.

My grandparents came over this week, so that’s why I didn’t update.
This is Kevin’s Bretonnian Sorceress, which I painted because I wanted to. I had trouble with the saddle, but again, I like the dress.
The Macaroni Grill makes me full. I don’t think I want to eat there again – it’s too good.

Bretonnian Knights of the Realm

Kevin: My knights! Spray-painted silver, and then handpainted the rest of the way. I only have two because there were only two in the old boxed set, but I have about ten more in a large box that someone gave us, that also came with an opposing Lizardmen army. So I will paint them to join the unit soon.
I made peanut butter cookies, but there were only 28 so I want to make more next week.

Bretonnian Archers – take 2
finished Summer ’04

Kevin: Well, it’s really Jen writing this, because Kevin is too busy to write anything here (like the fact he’s playing Star Wars Battlefront II…). Anyway, he wants to say that these are obviously his archers again, but this picture was taken later and they’re in a different formation. So, cool.
Also, we unpacked our videos at long last – VHS, you know, videotapes. Not DVDs. And we found the Kevin and Jennifer show (the first ten years of my life + the first five years of his) and the Material and Form show, a partially televised art course recorded at Emily Carr by some guy named Tom Hudson. It’s pretty nifty, and we both enjoy it a lot.

My brother’s Warhammer Bretonnian archers.
I tried more hair colouring yesterday, and it turned out so well that I finished CGing a whole picture of Zela. Wow. Sadly, I used one with wonky anatomy, so… well, you’ll see it when you see it. Practice makes perfect, as they say.
Wah! Three pages of pretty comics! Golden, True Magic (“I love you guys”) and Undertow have all updated! Actually, I liked Undertow’s Ch4 pg3 even better – Teyn has his cute face on. And through Golden, I learned of the existance of a new animal: the binturong!
And I also learned that my brother saw the final episode of the third season of Dragon Booster and that Parm has a gauntlet and no medallion (he better find his courage first, heh heh) and that there is as of yet no funding for the next series: Dragon Booster: Academy.
In the Tsubasa manga, Volume 2 has the correct form of a sentance that bothered me in the anime translation. Probably done by a fan with a less-than-perfect grasp of the intricacies of contractions. Anyway, the anime subs said “I could care less if I’m hurt” (this is Syaoran speaking, of course). However, this implies that he cares if he gets hurt, since he could care less! Not-Syaoran-ish! The correct form of this sentence would be “I couldn’t care less if I’m hurt”. The manga says: “I don’t care where I’m hurt” which makes so much more sense.

The real title of this picture is “My brother when he hasn’t brushed his hair & he needs a haircut”
But, that’s a a bit long, so when I made the typo MOnkey by holding down shift too long, I jumped at the chance to make silliness. The two things at the bottom are indeed monkeys, based on a comment of Ali. My brother is the Little Monkey, and… someone else is the Big Monkey.
Yesterday I saw Sherlock Holmes and the Devil’s Foot Root on TV. It was pretty freaky when he poisons himself in the name of science.
I coloured in a nice picture and an okay picture with my art markers recently. I really like the one. The other, while technically okay, is just… meh. Also I need to study how to draw wings. (First wolves, then wings. What am I drawing, a zoo?)
