This blog post is an announcement that my piano arrangement of "Lanayru Sand Sea" from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has been accepted and it is now on the main site. You can find it here by clicking on the "Legend of Zelda" section and scrolling down to find my sheet. Alternatively the site also generates a list of arrangements by arranger which will automatically get updated as their arrangements are put onto the site; mine can be found here. There is some new post-it art which may or may not come today as well as some school projects which I put way too much effort into.

This week's art homework was to create an entry into the PTA Reflections program, with the theme "What is Your Story?". I showed mine with various objects that represented my interests - the Triforce and N64 console (lower right) for gaming, the compass and Hilbert curve for mathematics, the pencil set for art, and the sheet music for... music. With this one I tried using different mediums for each of the different objects; the Triforce was painted with gouache (a paint resembling an opaque watercolor), the Hilbert curve and sheet music was drawn with marker (with pencil shading), and the pencils and N64 was drawn with colored pencils. All shadows were done with pencil. I think that because of the intensity the Triforce stands out a lot compared to the compass and N64. The N64 doesn't resemble itself the best because of the small area that was shown, however the scanner cut off the Nintendo logo I put on the original. Overall I think that it was good for me to use mediums that I never used before and try a new style of art.

I managed to create a new post-it art again, this time of the hookshot from Ocarina of Time. In this one I knew that it was mainly a cylinder, but I think that the shading seems to centered and the light appears to be coming head-on. I also think that I could have created a more metallic effect along the body of the hookshot. I continued using the same shading technique that I used for most of the post-it arts.

(assuming that whoever had such license plate used it on a Honda Pilot) I decided to put a plane on the license plate because autopilot could refer to a plane even though it was a car and "state of flight" came from there. On this one I tried to focus on the shading of the metal license plate and model name. At some points it is hard to distinguish the "Pilot" lettering from the metal background shading, which may have prompted me to do what I did in the Pedestal of Time post-it art. Note that I finished this on October 9th and the Pedestal of Time, published before this, was completed on October 14th.

This week I had to cut a Styrofoam cup. Six cups, one container of Elmer's glue and one X-Acto Knife later, I made a model of the King of Red Lions from The Wind Waker. Overall, I think that I did a good job considering I have never made art out of a Styrofoam cup. However, some limitations of the homework assignment, such as having to include exactly all of the parts of the cup, got in the way of making it look even better. I may upload a template later if I find the time, but I have also been busy arranging for NSM.

this model for. I felt I had some trouble in the lower right-hand side of the blue, where I used a black colored pencil to create a shadowed effect. I think that the shading also went well, and I liked how I made a darker edge along the inner part of the shadow. One thing I was concerned about was the blue part of the color wheel blending in with the blue body of the shield, but I put in gray around the entire wheel seemed to counter that problem. I will hopefully put up whatever other art homework I have as a supplement to the post-it art.

My first post-it art for this school year is of the Kokiri Sword and its sheath. This has been my first time working with mechanical pencils for a while and I feel like I will have to get adjusted to having a finer tip. If I can I will try to also use my wider mechanical pencil (heard of last in my Hylian shield drawing in June) to create better shadow effects. This worked out well so expect another one tomorrow.

With school coming up and my current level of interest in this blog I am concerned about the future of this blog. I have created a plan for some in-school art, which is to take a post-it notes (i have white ones hehe) and draw something (probably a Zelda thing) on it. This is a better idea than a notebook because it is smaller and more discreet, it is much more portable (my notebook system uses one per subject), there are no pesky lines that would get in the way, and it is much easier to scan a post-it than it is to scan a notebook. I would hopefully get one done every day or two and they would go up if I can find time. This will probably mean no digital art for most of the school year. I hope that it will work and I can keep the blog running until next summer.
I was on vacation for a few days and I found a way to put it into my blog. The sunrise photos involved me waking up at 5:30 in the morning and going to the beach to take them before the sun rose. The sunset photos were much easier to get. I also made two Skyward Sword-themed sandcastles; however while being at a beach where my phone could easily get sandy and wet I could not make them completely like the original. I made a few photo albums which will be in the captions of each of the samples.

I have recently created a account on the NinSheetMusic forum. For those who don't know, NinSheetMusic is a website where people post piano arrangements of video game tracks. The forum is where members can request and submit sheets. I go by Lkjhgfdsa_77 on the forum. I have already submitted a sheet (Lanayru Sand Sea from Skyward Sword) and this will probably take up most of my free time for a while. I will probably make posts here or on my Google+ when one of my sheets gets on the site.

After beating Ocarina of Time a second Spiritual Stone has finally been drawn. In this one I tired to focus on the translucency of the gem, but I feel that I could have added a slight reflection and other effects to the gem. I might re-upload a scanned image later but for now just take my art.

This I drew for the sake of putting something up on the blog. It exists because I have not posted in a week, I am messing around in Linux, and I am too lazy to make more digital art. It is also Independence Day in America so I decided on a flag. It was also convenient that I had only red and blue colored mechanical pencils. I also decided that it has to be accurate to an actual flag, which took a while and many tries in getting the 13 stripes and star placement right.

Hello and I haven't posted for 5 days. I was out doing other things and spending too much time playing Skyward Sword. I managed to get one decent edited photograph in for the blog. I may or may not try to start a drawing later today but I just wanted to not abandon the blog.
Oh yeah and also Linux dual boot

After hours of studying, line art, shading, and smudging my left hand, my Splatoon drawing is finally complete. On this piece I tried using a different lighting angle, which comes from the left side as opposed to a left angle. Most of the time I spent working on this I was shading the boxes, which I decided to create a ridged effect on the sides. I feel that the 1-point perspective put an emphasis on the Inkling in the center of the drawing. I actually drew the Inkling as my own Inkling in-game... so um yeah.

I haven't posted in 2 days so I decided to put some old drawings up on here for the sake of posting in this blog. These two were directly based off of the Akira Himekawa Ocarina of Time manga books and I decided to draw them a couple of months ago. I am currently working on a Splatoon-related drawing which will hopefully be posted later today.

This one is based off of a drawing that I drew with my pencil and decided to make it an excuse to practice my Krita skills. It is based of the scene in The Wind Waker when Link wakes up in his pajamas. I had a joke with my friends that Link was "not having it".
This drawing is literally the first thing I made with Krita after playing around with all the brushes. I currently do not have a graphics tablet, so I think that I got a sort-of sketchy style from using my mouse. I personally like how the sword blade turned out with the shading and shine, but I think that the "wings" of the hilt have bad shading.
Hello. I am lkjhgfdsa_77 and this is my art blog. On this blog I will put my digital art, pencil sketches, photographs, and [probably] occasionally random stuff that I do. Now that school is out I will be able to draw much more frequently and upload on here. The plan is that I will get a DeviantArt to post all of my art and possibly use my YouTube account for other things, but... I don't know. I might end up abandoning this blog in a week or two. I might still be busy and only get to show my art to my friend group. I might stop doing art and use my time on completing Skyward Sword. That aside, the only thing I can do now is hope for the best and know that we will be in this together.
