I love to draw, particularly animals, and I am going to major in Journalism. My favorite language is French and someday I plan to be a fluent francophone and travel to Paris.

11 July 2014

I am not too thrilled with work this summer. :\ I am having a hard time getting up to speed and feeling good about it. Last year was better. I liked my schedule better. My work week was four 10-hour days (2 day shift, 2 swing shift) with three days off (Tues-Thurs).  This year it's Monday-Friday swing shift for four weeks and then switches to day shift Tuesday-Saturday for four weeks. Next week will be day shift which means I get afternoons off, but I will be so sleepy. I like swing shift better for that reason. I don't enjoy getting up in the mornings. 

I still have to work today, but it's my Friday! 

But the fun news is that I finally did finish that portrait of Megan I was working on. I told her I wanted to do more of them with different mediums, but on the third one I just did Tegaki E again because I do like the challenge and the style of Tegkai E... so I already failed and she called me out on it already. She says I should do acrylics, but I'd feel more comfortable practicing with more forgiving mediums first, haha. This latest portrait was done in Photoshop and I have a comparison in my Scraps: joava.deviantart.com/art/Megan…  There you can see the reference photo. :) 

Feel free to feature or share this with your friends because I am really proud of it and I would love to see it get really popular....just because. :) 

I had a particularly hard day at work on Wednesday, which is when I revealed my portrait, and it kind of ruined my good mood, so if we could just give me that little ego boost, I'd appreciate it. :) 


Also-- Megan is such a gracious model. :) She's not the least bit creeped out. What a great friend!
