I think you’re probably tired of seeing posts of my Splatoon avatar, so here’s a little change of pace! It’s a new year (two months into 2019, in fact), so I wanted to post a little update of my bullet journal.
Here’s my review of 2018 and my New Year resolutions for 2019:
And my new future log for 2019. I tried to go for a more “minimalist” approach for the borders, mostly because I didn’t want to draw so many lines!
I’ve also finally finished my book list that I created two years ago! I started a new one right after my 2019 future log.

As promised, here’s the colored version of my Inkling!
I don’t know why, but I’m actually really happy with it! It didn’t take too long to do, and it’s not very fancy, but I just like it. The skin turned out really well. I don’t normally use E02, but this time it blended well with E00.
I don’t think that this is very characteristic of the “me” on this blog, but I’m actually quite a gamer. For the past half-year or so, I’ve been really into a game called “Splatoon 2”, which is played on the Nintendo Switch. So much so, in fact, that I’ve made my own YouTube channel about it! I’m quite unpredictable.
I wanted to make my own avatar, so I made this template on Affinity Designer. I then planned on coloring it with Copics (as usual) and then doing the background digitally.
My semester starts on Tuesday, and unlike last semester, I don’t have posts lined up! So, I am going to “cheat” and divide this project into three parts. The next post will be the colored version, and the one after that will be the final one with the background. That should keep this blog busy for a month or so!
Also, I am taking an art class next semester, so hopefully that’ll give me something to post!
Today is the last day of Christmas, and so I’m happy that I’ve colored the Christmas card (somewhat) in time! I meant to do the background in Copics as well, but my B00 ran out while I was doing it, so I completely redid it using Affinity Designer.
My scanner is strange, so the gray strips on the third bauble are actually purple on paper. I like the gold bauble quite a bit. Although it’s streaky, it actually looks like gold! And the highlights were lighter on paper, so it looked more reflective.
I don’t like the font much, so please let me know if you have recommendations to make it better.
Merry Christmas, everyone! May you all have a blessed day!
This year, I decided to make a Christmas card template. I’m going to fill it out with Copics, which appears to now be my go-to Christmas art medium, but since I don’t know when I’ll actually finish coloring it, here’s the template for now. I made it on Affinity Designer.
My grandmother is writing a collection of short stories about her childhood and travels. I liked the one about a man with an A-frame who did the laundry when she was young. And so I drew it.
I gave this to my grandmother, who is currently visiting us. I’m glad that she liked it.
This was done a while back. Around the time when I had bought the new Copic sketchbook, I was wondering what to draw with my Copic markers. I ended up coloring a line art of my backyard shed and drawing some mountains first, but I also saw some ripe peaches on my countertop and thought they would be really nice to draw with the markers, what with their vibrant colors and gradations. I did this shortly before the fall semester started.
I actually think that this is one of my more successful Copic pieces. For one, I drew it from scratch (not that coloring in something from a digital stencil is cheating, but I do need to improve my sketching skills as well). Secondly, I think the blending turned out pretty well.
