I'm still here. I know it's been over a year but I do live! Hopefully will have some new artwork to share soon
Still Alive... Just so you know.
Have graduated my masters (with distinction, woop!) and am now experiencing the joy that is job hunting. No luck so far, but am hopeful And also looking forward to the year ahead. Getting back into running, yoga and hoping to start a beginners archery class soon! As well as doing some volunteering with a local youth charity.
AND... my dad has bought himself a Canon EOS 7D camera with some yummy lenses so guess who gets to play with it while he's at work (and I'm sick of filling in job applications)?
Yup, yours truly. So hopefully should have some new photographs up soon.
Quick Update...Letting you all know I am alive. But super busy. Working on final project for my Masters (aside from the dissertation) as well as redesigning a website for one of my lecturers friends.
I'm hoping to put a few nice 3D images on here soon (I've just put one WIP up) of my current project - reconstructing a Neolithic house from the site of Çatalhöyük, Turkey.
More hopefully to follow soon.
Long time no writeSo it's been so long since I wrote on here I figured I should let people know I'm alive.
Been super-busy with work since the end of September and now am getting stuck in to my final year of my masters on top of that so lots to do!
I do have some photos I took in Yorkshire to sort through and get up here at some point (soon!) AND I have just discovered my Uni department will let me borrow one of their digital SLRs so I'll be able to practice using a fancy camera.
And the reason for the "hurt" smiley? I fell off my bike cycling to work yesterday morning (damn slippery wet leaves; thanks autumn!) and have the biggest black/purple/red bruise on the back of my upper thigh. So bad the main impact area is actually numb. There may be nerve damage which wouldn't be surprising considering how hard I hit the pavement. Owchies!
MemoriesJust been going through my travel photography as I want to get some printed for albums and have found a few from my Asia leg of my trip that I didn't put up on here, so apologies for the sudden influx of images from me!
It's so weird to think that this time a year ago I was in the Cook Islands enjoying island life - lying on a beach, snorkeling, visiting the local market, cycling round the island... *sigh* Good times.
In other news I am currently saving up to buy myself a proper SLR camera. I was tempted by a Nikon but the past week I've been working at the Rose Bowl for the England vs. Sri Lanka Test Match (in the Press Area) so got chatting to a couple of professional photographers and they've said straight up to get a Canon. So decisions decisions!
Also, the reason for my astonishment is I am currently watching Venus Williams vs. Kumiko Date-Krum at Wimbledon and am amazed by the high level of tennis I'm seeing. I'm rooting for Date-Krum as at 40 years old she's just won the first s
OwchiesJust a quick update saying I've put up some more photos I've taken using my friend's gorgeous camera. Just messing around in the garden playing with focus, aperture, lighting, etc. etc. I like them, even if they are mostly of flowers!
In other news: I got braces the other day so my poor mouth is in a lot of pain right now. Stupid metal bits digging in to me Well, it'll be worth it in the end I hope. Managed to break them the first meal I tried to eat with them mind you, so had to go back yesterday and get them fixed. Have been sticking to porridge and soup and bread mushed into it. As you can imagine, I'm starving! But apparently my friend has made me cheesecake for this evening so yay!
Anyway, I have to go and get on with reading about the computer program I need to learn for my next assignment. *sigh* No rest for the wicked, ey?!
Playing around with SLRsSo I've put up some more photos (or will have, by the time you read this, I promise!) that I've taken with my friend's beautiful Nikon D5000. I've had a couple of chances to play with it over the past couple of weeks at various events, and last Sunday I wasn't training at my martial arts club so wandered around with in then also. Got (in my mind at least) some nice shots. I hardly ever have the opportunity to use real SLRs so I jump at the chance. My skills aren't brilliant, but I am fairly proud of the results I got.
I spent today surveying a wall in a graveyard for my course and got to play with my archaeology department's SLR also (Nikon D300) so when I get a hold of all the non-archaeological pics I took (was meant to be taking photos of the wall but I got... distracted) I shall get some of those up also.
There was also the best bit of banter from today. Before we got started with the total station and survey, one of my friends turned around and asked our supervisor if there was a
Apologies...... for clogging up all your message boxes with pictures.
I'm meant to be working on an assignment and have somehow turned it into going through my travel photos and remembering that I'd been planning on putting more up here. I didn't get around to it, so I've done it now.
Happy New Year to all. 2011 already. Wow, where is the time going? Hope everyone had a peaceful Christmas and I hope you make 2011 a year you'll want to remember for the right reasons.
365 Day ChallengeJust a quick post to let you all know I'm starting a 365 day photography challenge. You can check my progress/bitch at me to do it at: http://charleys-365.blogspot.com/
Love to all x
InundatedJust an apology for the recent flooding of your inboxes with pics. Have had a chance to briefly look through some of my travel photos and am picking out some of my favourites. There is more to come, just to give you a heads up.
It's very odd being back home. Just think, a week ago I was in Los Angeles and now I'm in a tiny English village in the middle of the countryside. Still beautiful but a bit of a culture shock! Real life is calling again

About MMD YanSim ModelsHi anyone reading this, but I just want to notify you sorry for the inactivity for a while. I have been taking a break for a very long time and I have little to no interest in Yandere Simulator and MMD. I have no motivation to finish what I started, and I don't want to just keep saying, "Model will be put on download soon." What I want to say is that I won't be making anymore Yandere Simulator models and I want to break any promises I made from you guys. Feel free to use my models and edit them, because I won't be making any Yandere Simulator Models in the meantime. Now that I won't be making Yandere Simulator models I will probably be inactive and will post some screenshots here in there in my free time.
so bleeeh yeah no more yan sim models and you can edit my models because i dont really care about yandere simulator bleeheheeh that also means that i wont be that active anymore blehehehehe theres the start of school so i wont be active times 2 bleheheheh xddddd

CringeLop got to see some of these and took pictures of them. Gotta upload them before she does. Also thought it'd be interesting for you guys to see!
This was when Claire was a dragon Scootaloo (also seemingly exactly like siansaar's Lavender), Valiant was a little more like Prism and Estrello existed. If I remember correctly, these were gonna be the only three characters I focused on and Claire was gonna eventually become a part of the guard.

Illusion and Celestia making silly faces
I wanna say these were the first drafts of the next gen (Claire and T not included since I'd already posted drawings of them here). Annie wasn't gonna exist and Fluttershy wa

I’ve realized over the years that I can’t draw everything myself, and I’ve damaged my hands by trying to draw all of my comics on my own. My followers are always asking when the next chapter of Fisheye Placebo or Knite is coming out, and it always pains me to say not yet. I can’t draw for more than a few hours a day now before the pain sets in.
I’m still determined to finish the comics I started, but I know I’m going to need help. I’ve been dabbling in 3D backgrounds for Fisheye Placebo, but I still had to build them myself, which is very time consuming and damaging to my hands in different ways.
I’ve been thinking a lot and I want to move my comic creating techniques to the next level and incorporate both 3D characters and 3D backgrounds. I’m not the most skilled when it comes to 3D programs, and I don’t have the time or health to create all the models myself, so I am looking
