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.
