Couchsurfer Girl is a travel-reality show created for Croatian National Television that follows Croatian’s most adventurous couchsurfer Gina in her voyage through the Balkans. Season One is happening in Eastern Europe capitals: Belgrade, Pristina, Tirana, Podgorica, Sarajevo and Skopje. In each city Gina is hosted by a local couchsurfer.
Look! Other people’s projects!
Gina (Đina) is great. The pilot episode was great. Couchsurfing is great (or so everyone else tells me). Eastern Europe is probably great (have I visited ANY of those cities?). Anyway, go check it out! Not much on the Tumblr yet, but the project is in the works. And there is a Facebook page, too.
It’s been a little over a week since I finished the experiment. So with that temporal distance, it is time to look at the results and see what I’ve learned or had to confront during the process.
Drawing takes time. It requires sitting down for five hours and actually working on a single drawing during that time. I feel a bit bad whenever I spend my time in such a way. I probably shouldn’t feel bad. Quick sketches don’t require a lot of attention to detail and instead count on skill and spirit and feeling, but digital drawings and illustrations with an intention are a different story. At least the sort of digital drawings and illustrations that I would like to improve on. So developing more patience would be good.
A drawing a day is great practice, because it puts you in a situation where you need to make decisions: ‘Do I want to draw a quick sketch and be over with it? Or will I give this sketch more attention and colour it? To do other things and have a sketch or to have a coloured drawing and no other activities for the rest of the day… Hmm.’
It would be very useful to continue this. Or better yet, to work on a drawing every day. Or sketch. To work on developing my drawing technique, the way I feel when I sketch, think, develop… Many things. There are many things that can be done here. So I better get on that soon.
Lastly, thanks go to Akva and Vale for the helpful tips, feedback and encouragement. <3
#4 - LoL Dream
This game has infiltrated my brain, subconscious included. I had a dream that I was Vi and was running away from a bunch of people that were trying to kill me. Vayne was one of them. But then I told her she was the hottest person in the group and then later we were in a crowded area and she couldn’t kill me in front of so many people. Had the dream lasted longer, I’m sure we’d have become
Anyway, this is the first combo breaker in terms of image size. It’s also rather sloppy, but I had a sudden burst of drawing energy after a whole lot of struggling AND I wanted to post it before midnight, so it’s a trade-off I’ve decided to live with. Less thinking for daily draws! Maybe!
