A New Leaf

So the title has a semi insightful meaning hahaha, no I'm not turning over a new leaf... well I do want to, but yeah... So what do I have to share? Well babies is what I wanna share hahaha, a lot of people at work are becoming Daddies, yeah I work with a bunch of men which is fairly different. You get much more graphic and disgusting conversations where no one really cares or thinks about what they say hahahaha, but anyway! My at work Bro recently had his baby boy~ CONGRATZ TO YOU BRO~!!!

I do promise this is getting somewhere especially with the whole explanation, so to explain more. My manager e-mailed everyone asking if we were getting a card and gift for him. So we went round the office collecting money and I put myself forward for making a card =B oh man... I for some reason like tight deadlines hahaha, it makes me work! So I researched a few images on google, and OMG WAS EVERYTHING ADORABLE!!! I got distracted by the cuteness for a good 2 hours before I was like RIGHT! Jatzu... YOU HAVE TO DRAW OR YOU'LL NOT SLEEP TONIGHT!

Spent a good 4-5 hours on it... *sighs* didn't even do what I wanted to do in the end T^T I originally wanted to do baby animals with their parents, and I went for baby Rhino and mummy Rhino~ cause they were cwute. But! And here is the killer but... I drew mummy Rhino way too big for the page... ¬_¬ I would have needed full on A3 for that *sighs* so I scrubbed mummy Rhino out and just kept baby Rhino =D And also added baby Giraffe... although it just looks like a Giraffe... no different to an adult one HAHAHAHAH! ¬_¬ Yeah.... Anyway before I gave it away I took pictures of it, oh oh oh I also did an origami bow for it~ FIRST BOW EVER!!! I was worried I would mess it up. But yush~ PICTURES!!

I will confess now. I'm no good with animals, so the fact that this even came out decent is massive surprise to me, there are still many faults like the ears too small and I could work on my shading and so on, but! At least a lot of people got confused and thought it was a shop bought card XD Nah! Hand made from scratch is the way to go~ I will have another update fairly soon~ I didn't want to add it on now due to the fact that it might be seen and it's supposed to be a real big surprise~ So until next time peeps~

Those who know what OTL is... that is exactly how I feel with myself at the moment hahaha... I have pretty much failed to try and keep up to date with my drawings, I always say I should, but what the hell is the point in saying I should but not actually doing it!!! Yes Jatzu! I'm talking about you! DO MORE DRAWINGS!!! OR YOU'LL SERIOUSLY WASTE ALL THAT HARD WORK!!!! (Although most peeps will say "what hard work?" OTL again... yes... I haven't exactly been working hard *sighs*)

So just to wet your appetite I went through a mini phase of thinking that I should do more costume design, cause man seriously... drawing all these naked bodies is good fun, but who the hell wants naked people?? And also, what's the point in doing movement of the body, but not understanding the movement of the clothes as well?? Get my point?

My drawings have been getting a bit out of style, like I dunno... sometimes I have a really angular style and then other times I have a round style... tis weird, oh before I forget there is one repeat page in there from a previous update, and there are some referenced drawings in the 4th one from Brave10. I really like Kairi Shimotsuki's work, I think she has some really lovely designs and to boot she does really sexy women~ Like really sexy hahaha. I haven't been following Brave10 as much as I should do, but yeah I occasionally go back to it for drawing references, I honestly do like how she draws. I always go back to Miwa Shirow as well, he is just love~ LOLOL but I don't really wanna draw like him, I kinda want to take on how he fills in his blacks, cause that is just a really dramatic way to do it. But in general I think for me well for my style, I work better with simple lines. I want a style which is a mixture of many artists XD well tbh I want my own style, I can't really tell if it's my own or if it looks like someone else's work *shrugs* some people say that it's really distinctive, whilst quite a few say me work looks like Masashi Kishimoto's work (Naruto artist), nothing wrong with that, but I'd rather peeps went "Oh! That's Jatzu's Style!" *Dances to Gangnam Style* Hahahahahaha~ 

There is so much for me to do and improve, so much so I should pull myself up again and work harder, even if it means slaving away at it and getting extremely tired from it. I CAN DO THIS!! ESPECIALLY IF I B&Q IT!!!! *FIST PUMP*
