SO I'M BACK IN WALES YET AGAIN. After the explosions with my parents I'm sort of glad I left (because the night before I left my aunt decided it was HER turn to make me feel like a worthless piece of lazy ass which is always fun) even though it means the dawning of a new year and the fact that I'm supposed to be graduating in uhhhh 5 months? AHAHA. Fuck my life.

My room is still balls cold, and I have to resort to wearing gloves when I'm working up here on stuff. I actually used the heater for the first time in ages because oh my god I was so fucking cold under a winter duvet and a blanket and hats and gloves and socks and a kigu that I needed the extra warmth.



YOUNG AVENGERS CHILDREN'S CRUSADE ISSUE 4 CAME OUT and I was very disappoint. Come on Heinburg, Tommy is not 15, and I know you are fixing that but god. Way to make me feel skeevy about playing him for a second there fdjknhfjknfhd. Other than the horrifying lack of Tommy in that issue, I liked it a lot! Did not expect the ending and was all :O when it happened and blah blah blah everyone who this matters too is already all over this. HERP. Trust me for being late to the flail party over LJ but I assure you much flailing was done over twitter (which I have been using a lot more recently I think I am addicted) and AIM.

ALSO [livejournal.com profile] virtualdon gave me my late Christmas present, which is the Axel Formation Arts figure that is only available in Japan and I flipped out. I put him together straight away and oh my god I love his face so fucking much I am actually beside myself. I also got my presents from [livejournal.com profile] batfowl (THANK YOU SWEETIE!) She sent me a pretty bracelet and Cupcake rice paper toppers with fucking Shiba Inu puppies on them. They will be the most adorable cupcakes I will ever create I don't even.

And idk if I said this before but my flat mates pooled together and got me a Raikou plushie AND HE IS SO CUTE I DON'T EVEN??? I am forming an electric type plushie ARMY (I have a Jolteon, Ampharos, Elekid, Rotom and Raikou now :D Blitzle and Emonga are on the LIST as well as Luxray if I could ever fucking find it for less than a billion dollars) but I am glad in the knowledge that I'll never be as bad as this even though I am super jealous of like pretty much everything she owns.

Oh I just realised I am rambling. HERP.

ONE LAST THING I GUESS, I was saved today by my tutors who decided to extend the dissertation draft final for another 10 days, as I was really starting to work myself up into a state over the fact that I didn't do as much work over Christmas as I thought I would've. I'm going to aim to try and finish it this week and get a couple people to read it and I'm aiming to do the full 8,000 words to make it easier when the deadline comes around again. And we have deadlines in February and I have to do so much work that I'm thinking about setting up a 9-5 work regime to see if I can actually motivate myself every day to do SOMETHING. Wish me and my procrastinator of a brain luck guys.

It's going to be a bumpy year BUT HOPEFULLY it'll all be worth it in the end and I'll never have to write another fucking essay or use Harvard referencing ever fucking again. >:(

also I promise I wrote this journal not drunk even though it totally seems like I am.

Jolteon is still my favourite by far.

Whenever someone texts me on my phone, it now does the pokemon center 'healing your pokemon' noise. You know the DO DO DODO DOOO.

I think I'm officially a little bit too into this again... Not that I was ever out of it, but omg it's the cutest text tone EVER. ;A;

EDIT: I've also just downloaded 2.B.A. Master. Which is the Pokemon Album with the pokerap on it. /ROCKS OUT

/goes back to animating an extra scene that my director lumped on my this morning sob I THOUGHT I WOULD BE DONE BY 12PM 8'(
purapea: (misc; snow leopard; OH GOD WHY)
I don't know what's wrong with me. First I love animation, and then I hate it, and after taking a long break from it I don't mind it. BRAIN MAKE YOUR MIND UP.

But seriously, we're doing a group project at uni right now, and I made it really clear from the start that I didn't want to do any animation, and I wanted to take a more pre-production side of things. Which I did, and I enjoyed! And now the deadline is looming, and I have lots of concept stuff to finish off, but since I'm the only other 2D 'trained' animator in our group (the other two are CG/Stopmotion) I've been given a couple of shots to finish off this weekend in time for the deadline. And the shots I got given are quite complicated, but when I sat down to start them on Friday, I sort of realized that I'd missed animating.

That's the second time this week it's happened--first when all the first years were having a crit in the studio I was working in (they were showing off their character performance pieces so like, run cycles, jumping, animal walk cycles etc) and it just... it got me so pumped that I asked the teacher for the brief to do in my own time since my showreel is really weak in that department. The first years have gotten so much more work than we had in our first year, and I'm friends with quite a lot of them.. I sort of wished I'd repeated first year, because they look like they are having a lot more fun, and I miss being taught by Matthew and Leoni (the only two teachers who are actually good at this stupid university).

I wish I could make my mind up about what I actually want to do. I mean, I do actually enjoy animating when I don't have HUGE deadlines and I've organized my time properly. But I also hate it with a passion, know that I'm not especially good at it, and prefer the preproduction stuff. RARRGHH.

I guess when I have to make my final film, we'll see which side of the work is stronger, and I'll work from there I guess.

But yeah, since I have all that concept stuff, scenes to animate and editing to do, I'll probably not be around much this week. Thankfully because there is four of us, the work isn't that stressful, but we need to get it done. I'm really proud of the look of the 2D stuff which was my idea and I'll probs post the thing when we finish, even though the stopmotion stuff is already looking a bit weird, because the director gave the model a really weird head--that I didn't design :| SIGH.

I am really looking forward to the next project though, which is sort of like a professional practice brief. We have to design business cards and cover letters (and I'm probably going to design a website too and maybe a mini portfolio and fjskdng) to send out to companies, and then we have to do a Live brief--which is basically designing those little idents that go in between TV shows on tv channels. (So like, the E4 estings, and the HIPPOS SWIMMING IN A CIRCLE on BBC1) And because I'm probably going to pick E4, it can be as random as I want it to be. It'll be nice to end this term on such a fun project.

/Goes back to animating someone standing up.


IT'S FUCKING AWESOME even though I can't play it because of this looming deadline and I'm still in Violet City training my pokemans BUT IT IS STILL SO GOOD ;A;
purapea: (pokemon; ampharos; :D)
WELL THAT WAS A FUN POKE-FILLED DAY. Here is a synopsis of what we did. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures :(

Not really a synopsis, or I wouldn't be cutting it. )


All in all it was a really fun day, and I am definitely going to another event when I get the chance to. I have to go back to working on my Animatic now, and I don't want to 8( I want to draw and make icons of the pokemon cards I got, sob. But if I don't get this done I think my director will actually have an aneurism.

purapea: (patf; tiana; zzzzz)

A crazy very stressful week. I don't know how I find time to animate, produce a film, mod a huge rp and write apps all at the same time without exploding. But somehow I manage it. It's been getting to me a bit this week, but I did manage to get to go home for a well deserved break, so there is that. Let's hope next week isn't as stressful (which it probably will be considering I have a deadline coming up) but AT LEAST I HAVE SOULSILVER TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN THE MAIL. Oh my god I am so excited! SO EXCITED. I already started planning my teams and movesets and names and EV points and. Ahhh.

I also have a secure place at San Diego Comic Con this year thanks to the WONDERFUL [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin who is awesome and I can't thank her enough for it <3 SO THERE ARE GOOD THINGS.

On the RP side of things, I caved an apped Chase at [livejournal.com profile] xi_rpg, without dropping anyone. Six characters is a lot, I am not sure how I will manage. So what do I do to cope? App a complex character in a different roleplay. Sob. I finally got around to apping at [livejournal.com profile] vatheon as Axel and I'm hoping I get in. The Roxas looks good and I know the Sora is adorable. It's been so long since I've played him OU though... we'll see :s Also [livejournal.com profile] rakanthtayln enabled me into creating THIS intended for Brotherhood AU. He'll tell people to suit up, and they'll get their supersuits on and... yes.

First off, HALLO to the new people on my flist from the friending meme! I really should have an introduction post thing for when I do add people from those memes, like Oliver 8| BUT IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT ME FEEL FREE TO ASK.

There are a couple of things I'm covering in this. Firstly, is AIM working for anyone else? This morning it's not letting me log on via AIM or Meebo, so I'm just checking it's everyone's AIM and not just me @@; AIM has kind of been a fail lately, so I'm hoping it's not just me 8|a;

SECONDLY, I posted icons over at [livejournal.com profile] chaicons last night~! Pokemon ones mostly, but I'm getting together a Young Avengers post. I'm a little hesitant with it though, since I decided it would be a good idea to try iconning the issues from the beginning, so a lot of the icons I made have been made a billion times. I don't know, I have like 80 of them, so it seems a waste not to post them. SHOULD I? I caved :|


I drew some things )
DIS IS MY Lanturn, Lumos, as a human. I'm probs going to do this with all of my electric team because I enjoyed designing her and I might take some commissions if people are interested in chibi gijinka (or just chibi/pokemon/regular commissions in general) since I have no money for my American Adventure yet. WOULD ANYONE BE INTERESTED? ;A;

LASTLY, I get to go home on Friday. Omg I haven't been home since Christmas and I miss my family so much 8( But before then, I have to do a fuckton of pre-production work for the film I'm working on. Like literally. I have so much work that I've been stressed pretty much all the time, and since my sleeping patterns have decided to screw up again, I'm not getting much sleep either. YAYYY. But this time on friday I'll be on a train, so I have something to look forward to at least *___* BUT YEAH I might be a bit scarce till then because oh my god.
purapea: (pokemon; i swear to god i will kill you)
Okay so I've just spent the last like, ten minutes looking at Battle Frontier application forms on deviant art. You know, it's one of those meme things you fill in with a pokemon team and a an OC and enter a comic contest where the battles are drawn out. This doesn't sound particularly bad until you find out that in those ten minutes, I went through several forms and shouted at the computer because:

a) their movesets are completely and utterly not thought out and they have like three water type moves on one water pokemon and it makes no sense and taught Thunder and Shock Wave to a Raichu and omfg what why would you do that
b) looked at someone with an Ampharos on their team with Zap Cannon listed as a move and was like what ampharos can't learn zap cannon and had to double check to make sure I was right, which I was
c) got into a major RAEG discussion about this with [livejournal.com profile] hikaridonya, whilst the other people in the room look at us like we had something wrong with our brains.

Again, why can't I study pokemon for my degree?

/goes back to writing her essay
purapea: (up; carl; disgruntled; no)
Man, I love my 2D animation teacher, but he doesn't half like to work us to the bone. I'm figuring that he's thinking 'it's for their own good because third year is going to slaughter them' but cutting a deadline by three weeks is not nice. And it's not fair either since, you know. We have a fuckton of work to do, and 3D and stop-motion don't have much at all and they still have till after Christmas to hand everything in. RRRFHHN.

On top of that, the deadline coincides with ANOTHER project, which we were originally doing in groups, till one of the group decided to do things on her own. Which is fair, but now me and [livejournal.com profile] silverbrumby123 are actually fucked because there is no way we can do two full colour with sound, 1-2 minute animations in a week and a half. Though, I always say this and I always somehow do it. I'll just become a sparkly vampire and not sleep. Needless to say, I'll probably be scarce till after the projects are done. @_@

It's just frustrating because this is all going on when I'm sick, so I've not been motivated to work because I can't get out of bed. The nurses have no idea what's wrong with me, so I'm having blood tests in a couple of weeks to see if they can work it out, but it's nothing too major. It's the same thing I was dealing with last year around this time, (that no matter how much sleep I get I'm constantly tired thing) but it was connected to depression last time, and I know I'm not depressed. Hell, if it wasn't for all stress with the animation stuff, I'd be hecka happy. Not to say that I'm not, just the stress sometimes gets to you. So it's not depression. It might be anemia or a thyroid problem or something connected to PCOS, but we honestly wont know till I get bloods done. YAY. Blood tests are my favorite thing ever. Can you hear my sarcasm.

Other than those stuff, I've actually.. got practically all my Christmas shopping done. Which is insane since I usually leave it till the last minute. BUT THIS YEAR I'VE LIKE, ALREADY WRAPPED EVERYTHING. I'm sort of surprised at myself. Now if only I could get myself to be like that about work. Derp.

Anyways, enough ranting, here, have Tommy and Billy as Pokemon:

purapea: (pokemon; ampharos; :D)
Not much has been going on in the past couple of days, apart from me continually procrastinating from doing that school project thats in for the 13th. I know what I want to do and how I'm gonna do it I just have no motivation to do it 8( I'd much rather make icons of Eli or Thorg or Jaime which is always the way when you have something that NEEDS TO BE DONE. You have inspiriation for something else, and then when you finish the thing you had to do, the other stuff doesn't seem as inspiring anymore. SIGH. I even want to write Tommy fic, and coming from me that's a big thing! I never write fic. Ever. IT INTIMIDATES ME FAR TOO MUCH. But... I still want to because it's anything but my project 8|a; I have so much to do before I go to Wales too on Monday. Aaaaaa.

Anyways, here, have some pokemon drawings (i've seriously been into drawing ghost types lately wtf) and a drawing of Billy from a band!Au fic:


purapea: (pet avengers; thorg)

:D :D

Also, I posted some more Runaways icons at my graphics comm as well as some Pet Avengers one (FROG THOR GUYS. FROG. THOR.) so go check them out if you've got a sec (: I'm pretty proud of them! (They are kind of spoilerific though, so be warned!)

I think after I finish my school project, I'm going to go back and rework some of my old Kingdom Hearts icons and repost the Axel ones I took down since now that I've worked out a good system for iconning, I look back on those and CRINGE. Also I think I'm going to make some Young Avengers ones and some Marvel Adventures ones methinks. SO watch this space!
purapea: (pokemon; haunter; eye bulge)
What happens when you leave Pura and her sisters boyfriend alone with a helium filled purple balloon, a sharpie, scissors, cellotape, cotton wool, post-it notes and some bits of string you ask?


Wonderful things )

hell yes, we are so cool

It's sitting on my bookshelf now, looking adorable and floaty all at the same time. Fff.
purapea: (runaways; chase; WHOOOO!)
I hope you have a fantastic day <3

So I went to see HBP with my old Art Foundation homie, Yoko, and we had fun! I've not seen her in like, a year, and we decided to fix that. It was a fun day! And I thought the movie was good! Better than I thought it would be! Tom Felton is looking fine let me tell you, and I don't think Narcissa was hot or blonde enough in the tiny scene she was in (but I've always seen her as Makani draws her) BUT I LIKED IT A LOT MORE THAN THE BOOK SO THAT WAS A PLUS. I think Harry doing the pincers line was my favourite part. (SERIOUSLY!)

I also got a new tablet and after some stressed tweaking got it up and running SO EXPECT ART SOON. I've got a couple sketches I want to finish up, but I do have an art project I've got to do for the 13th, so I'll be working on that too at some point. I also have to go back to Wales to hand it in which is so stupid and retarded and will cost me an arm and a leg.

I also got a Nintendo Wifi amplifier, so now I can trade and battle pokemans whenever I want! My friend code is 0088 0510 7668 so if anyone wants to battle my dudes, or trade me some pokemans, IM me on AIM or message me on here AND WE CAN DO BATTLE.

ALSO I woke up yesterday morning with this huge scratch down one of my cheeks. My sister thought I was bleeding from my eye at first and the thing is I don't remember doing it or anything. It's weird! I musta done it in my sleep or something o_O It's really bizarre, but doesn't hurt or anything. Just looks like I was attacked by something with... pincers. Fff.

I also posted some icons to my comm, and I intend to do a lot more since I've been feeling the icon bug again lately. Expect some of my Roxas and Axel ones to be redone so they look better, and also some more comic ones! Feel free to watch the comm if you like as I intend to use it a lot more!
purapea: (pokemon; jolteon butt)
SO MUCH FOR TAGS. I spent basically the entire day with [livejournal.com profile] peypea instead, and we watched Pokemon movies. Hell yes we are so cool. We also... traded pokemon, bred pokemon... ....caught pokemon... uhm. AND OH YEAH, ATE CUPCAKES AND LOLED AT MY LIMPING.

It's so weird hearing Ash's normal voice after watching so much of the Diamond and Pearl series. SERIOUSLY he sounds like a squeaky toy.

... I'll try to get to tags after dinner, I promise.



ANYWAYS, here have a meme.

my thread
purapea: (marvel; the thing takes clobbering)
I love going to Brighton.


What was that? This was just an excuse to show off your new icon? that is a filthy lie, sir! Take it back right this instant.



purapea: ([ marvel ] pietro; what the flying fuck)


Mom bought the house Sky recently (for all you non-britons, its basically cable) and for a while we only had the most basic package since she didn't want to pay extra for channels she wouldn't watch? Cept then me and Hannah complained, and since the music channels and the kids channels were only £2 extra she let us have it. (take a wild guess which one I wanted 8D)

BUT ONE THING IS I wish Cartoon Network didn't play random episodes of TV shows in no particular order. Seriously, I was watching X-Men: Evolution today and I went from Kurt first getting there to the last episode of the season when everything EXPLODED and then back to when Kitty got there. SERIOUSLY GUYS HOW HARD IS IT TO PLAY THEM IN ORDER? I WANT TO WATCH THEM IN ORDER 8( Same goes for Teen Titans, but at least I've watched that series to death so it doesn't matter as much.. seriously I could tell you which season and which EPISODE NUMBER it was oh god

Of course all this watching of X-Men Evo and Teen Titans has not only helped my Beast Boy muse wake up a little, but it has also apparently given me a Evo!Quicksilver muse. I seriously don't need TWO JERK SPEEDSTERS IN MY MUSE SPACE GOOD GOD.

..pietro and tommy are totally partners in crime oh god

EDIT:I have also been drawing a little since my tablet broke, so here, have a knitting ampharos: )

I've been neglecting this for a whileee but I've had a busy couple of days so its to be expected. Lots of things have been happening on and off the internets, and whilst I won't bore you with all of it, I'll tell you the key happenings!

Went to MCM Expo with [livejournal.com profile] finalfantasia, [livejournal.com profile] silverbrumby123, [livejournal.com profile] otilu and [livejournal.com profile] squeakyorm AND HAD LOTS OF FUNNNN :D I usually only really go to meet friends since its always hella expensive, and I didn't cosplay this year either, but I got a Boota plushie, a Gurren Lagann poster, a couple of TTGL keychains, a plushie poptart (which is the most adorable thing ever) a free transformers t-shirt and some bottles of ramune which is curious and tastes like sherbert :O I ALSO GOT SOME EXTRA KEYBLADES FOR MY PLAYARTS AAA they are so fucking pretty ;A; I just want to touch them all the time omg. I'll post up some photos of the stash when I'm not hella tired, but I got all that I wanted so I'm extremely happy c: I'm thinking about cosplaying Team Rocket grunts at October Expo, and Kid!Simon from TTGL or Maya from Phoenix Wright. Plan, yes? I felt out of place out of cosplay so I HAVE to do it next expo or else :I

Got a new power cable and adapter plug for the computer as well as an external hard drive since I've been needing one like woah! also thinking about buying more running memory so I can put more computer programs on this thing, but we'll see! It's certainly nice to have my computer back, and the guys who brought me the new cable replaced my motherboard too and cleaned out all the dust. I swear one of the dustballs had a sentience.

Going to Wales tomorrow to pick up my final grades for this year and the rest of my stuff from my dorm room. It's gone so quickly! I mean, it doesn't seem like a year ago that I was getting ready to go to university but it is! I'm going to be a fucking second year. That is kind of terrifying. I hope I did okay in that last essay since I really enjoyed writing it but I know I probably failed overall since my depression during one of the semesters caused me to never hand in a project. I can resubmit it over the summer but :I

I ALSO GOT POKEMON PLATINUM FINALLY. I went into London especially to pick it up on the release day, and I'm training an all Ghost Team. It's fucking difficult, I'll tell you that, since it's irritating when you can't kill a Bidoof because your Ghastly only has Ghost moves, which are ineffective. 8| I am, however, really digging the adorable coats the trainers have to wear and all the snow too :D

But here is my current team on Plat:

Aren't they just so PURPLE? ff.

I think I promised to stop updating my LJ with boring life posts. Whups.

Just taking a quick break from work to tell you guys what is actually going down with shit.

I'm officially on Hiatus until hand everything in. Considering my deadline is tomorrow (Friday) I'll probably be back over the weekend if I finish my essay - which at this point is looking doubtful. I finished draft storyboarding and now am redoing the frames using a stick and indian ink which is taking forever since I have to wait for some of the frames to dry. i only tested the draft one when it was halfway through, so I don't even know if the later scenes work as an animatic. Once I've finished redrawing (I have about 30 shots left) I've got to film it, edit it, find royalty free music which will suit the animatic, time it and then I can get to work on my 2000 word essay for tomorrow. I think its going to be a little late going in, or I'm going to be staying up all night. I've had about 5 hours sleep in three days.

Needless to say I don't have time to do tags right now, which is driving me nuts since EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER decided to tag me back like, yesterday. I'm holding up threads and its really bugging me but I really can't actually go tag because sometimes it takes me an hour or two to get through all of them, and I just don't have that time to spare.

And in amongst all this stress, [livejournal.com profile] otilu and [livejournal.com profile] squeakyorm actually made my day yesterday by sending me a Rotom plushie for my birthday that they had both bought. I can't actually tell you how happy and excited I was to get him and the little charm that Elle bought back from Japan, since I've wanted a Rotom plushie ever since I knew they existed. My god its like THE CUTEST THING EVER and its so soft and adorable and and aaaa. He's sitting on my bed next to my Jolteon plushie, looking awesome. They are totes bffs, just like I imagine them to be on my pokemon diamond game >_> I'm not a loser, honest. Now I just need an Ampharos, a Lanturn, a Manectric and a Zapdos and I'll have my whole team in plushie form :D :D I WILL TAKE PICS AFTER DEADLINE.


yesterday I bought a ticket to the May ball. I wasn't originally going, cause I was going home on the day it was on, but then I found out the The Zutons would be playing LIVE, and there would be a free fun fair (which leads to playing on the bumper cars in BALL GOWNS) AND that dude who presented Catchphrase will be there running a catchphrase competition, I just had to buy a ticket. Fuuuck I need a dress.

EDIT: My calendar on the sidebar of my layout looks like tetris.
