This week hadn't been very good because all the public transportation services turned me down to where I can't go to Eastern this semester. I already dropped my classes on the last day I can do it without penalty. Yesterday, my favorite brown peacoat I have been wearing all winter got snagged on my bed's springs and was torn to shreds. I am still looking for a replacement because it was my favorite coat, I paid good money on it, and I'm worried that I could freeze the rest of the winter because I still have no coat to wear.
On the bright side, I installed Photoshop on my mom's computer and I still need to install my Bamboo tablet driver so I can do digital art on her computer whenever my mom is not online. I am still without messengers until I can get my hard drive repaired. I tried another cel painting but it didn't turn out how I wanted it to. Whenever I paint too thin, there is always streaks and whenever I paint too thick, the paint cracks. I learned on the internet that Plaid acrylics are very affordable but they are very poor quality for cel painting. I think I would be better off saving up for some Cartoon Colour since Taiyo Shikisai paints are too hard to obtain and they do crack and grow mold. To emulate the Taiyo Shikisai colors, I may have to disassemble the swatches into their CMYK forms with Photoshop and make the pigments out of acrylic inks and Elmer's glue and add white Cartoon Colour to the mix. I hope this will perform better.
I may get to go to EIU next semester because my mom is eager about getting a car. I hope as soon as that happens, I will no longer be a inferior, needy bum and I can live my life how I used to live it prior to 2008.
