“Crafting tools”

I’m crazy about digital art. It took me a while get used to my wacom, but once I did I haven’t almost touch a pencil ever. But for writting is another story. I love to write my ideas on paper. I used to take my note book with me everywhere when I still didn’t have to order the Anne’s chronology.

And these are my notebooks! A5 size so I can keep it in my handbag.

I show the edges, do not think they are that thin! lol
Once I write the ideas here I develop it deeply on computer. It helps me to clear all my ideas.

And My fountain Pen! I love writting with it, it’s so fast <3. It used to belong to my boyfriend. But he wasn’t using it so it was borrowed to me for an indeterminate time = (now it’s mine! >.<)
The refill inking system hates me… I spend a few minutes each time I have to do it… I’m so clumsy… but it’s my only complaint.

I think I already did talk about some of the same things, but I wanted to show my tools, tehehee

Hot Spice Coffee

I followed the same recipe as previous post Latte Coffees and this time I tried it adding Spicy Dark Chocolate (just a portion per person), inspired by Mexican Mocha Latte of the video.

It was delicious, it’s great for cold and rainy days >.< (and it was one of those days when I make it teehee)

Smart Phones hates Teksu chan U_U

I just got a new phone + digital clock, better known as Mi band 2 for christmas! ^^

I’m very satisfied with the shopping since both was really cheap and it works so good. I had two bad experiences with expensives phones before … It wasn’t really its fault, but it hurted me so much they broke up so early after paying so much for them… and on top of it, they didn’t give me much more than what I have now from my new phone.

My first smart phone was a Samsung Galaxy II. It was with me for around 2-3 years. I had a big problem with it when I travel overseas to work, my phone only worked with cards of the company I bought it from. So I had to unlocked it myself, I reboot it and I installed a new room (an offical one). Then the phone start to crash often and it didn’t went so fluent as before, it was really tedious use it for anything.
I got a Sony Xperia Z1 when I go back Spain and I get a new job. I’ve been 2 years and an half with it just a few months more than the time I spend paying it… lol, I was in love with my Xperia and its camera. But I’m afraid I installed Pokemon Go and it f*ck up the battery sensor. I’m sure it was that game because every time I was playing suddenly the phone turn off, when I got tired of playing and I uninstalled it, I noticed my phone batery was dying… U_U
When it finally died I refused to get a new expensive phone >…< I order a Redmi 3s from Aliexpress which just opened spanish store.  I’m so happy with it, and I was able to pay from once! >….<
It works pretty well, I would say it as good as my old Sony when it bought it. And I bet it is going to last as much as my old super ultimate tech f******* phones… for 1/8 of its price. LOL

Redmi 3s with its case. And Mi Band 2! >….<

Also I’m very happy with the Mi Band 2. Now I have the obligation to go to walking like last saturday! Just to reach goals >.< lol I’m became a very healthy person this year :D
It’s  a same it doesnt work with bike, I use it everyday U_U

More mugs, I love mugs

The day I got my Annebelle and Vladimir Cup:
dsc_0035

I order for my mom her customize mug.

mom
She is very similar to Emilio (lol) She loves Red Wine, almost any red wine.. lol
And I know she also loves to have a lot of mugs as much as I love it. This month is her birthday too so it will be part of her presents. I already gave it to her, a bit soon because her brithday is next week but she already gave me my “Saint Day” present too, 2 months before… LOL

Saint day is a christian festivity we celebrate in Spain. Spanish name has origin in name of Saints, every day from calendary is a day of a Saint, so you just need to look on calendary to know which is your day. I know it probably is not as simple as that but it is what I know about it.. lol
when you are kid you almost celebrate it as your birthday… lol usually you got less expensive gifts but it’s a big day. After that, it just become a (for me) unconfortable day of year which every person you know congrats to you for non reason. xD

Actually my family is not really christian, but it’s a common spanish tradition so we included it to ours lives, we have the best of both worlds… lol
When I was a kid I also asked my parents to celebrate Saint Claus the 24th night and Magician Kings the 5th  night… but it didn’t work U_U
At least we now have halloween and black friday! We didn’t when I was a child.
We celebrated the 1 november the All Saints’ Day. The day a lot of people remember their pass away loved ones graves need to be cleaned… yep. The rest of year cementeries are empty.
And the best part of this celebration to me, Gachas! a typical dessert made by milk (water in old times) bread, olive oild, cinnamon, lemon, sour, sugar, anís.

(Cocinando entre olivos)
My favorites was the ones of my grandma. She’s now elderly to cook of all of us U_U

Well.. I don’t know how I end talking about gachas… and spanish feasts… lol

Panic to writting

I have the story written, but I need to adapt the chapters so usually I just have 3-4 chapters with the dialogs, so I can make modifications, when this 3-4 chapters are about be released and I need to adapt more of them, I find myself in a mini panic state, I try to think about how I write the chapters before but I don’t find answer to that… the only thing I can do for this state ends is go to work and to write without thinking about me, just putting my mind on Anne.  Usually works, and I re-write and re-write the chapters tills it get as I want. Sometimes a chapter is not as good as the rest, but it’s a great transition to guide the story to the point I want.
If re-write adn re-write doesn’t work because any good idea comes to my mind… it’s time to have a little rest and get out, watch a good movie, cooking… anything I enjoy and put my mind on relax.
Many times I just got inspired by the most little thing, I never know. But of course, the most important I learned it’s you need to be an active writer if you want your brain find all those ideas or those connections on the story, you can’t just wait the ideas comes to you. It’s like a 80% work 20% magic.. I mean inspiration. ^^U
Also it’s very important to dismiss content. I write all I can, every little thing and then when I organize it, I have to get rid of everything that doesn’t match. Or I collect it for a future story, who knows… hihihi

Saturday Ride!

I spend the saturday outsite home so today it’s time to work!  Great ideas to writting came to my mind walking by street. It helps a lot to leave my study room from time to time >…<

And this is my great day resume! I prefer pictures to words :D
In the morning, I prepared a nice “weekend breakfast”. The rest of week we eat very healthy.

I was supposed go to work when I finish my meal but… lately the fall weather finally cames to my city, so we decided go outside to enjoy the sunshine <3 and go back for afternoon to work. That never happend we went to cinema after the lunch:
We went to downtown, where there is a food market (an agglomeration of mini restaurants which reminds me to sodosopa from southpark.. haha)  we met with an indian restaurant. The chicken butter rice was just ok… but the samosas… oh my.. it was the first time I try them >…<
img_20161119_143507

It was just a “Tapa + caña” (dish + bear) but it wasn’t cheap so the dish was more abundant than how it usually is. And the samosas.
We just wanted “picotear” or eat a bit in a restaurant and a bit more in another and so.
I don’t really know what we was thinking when we decided literally cross the city (still in the downtown) walking to eat something more in a famous brewery.
We got there, so I have the picture.

img_20161119_152550

But they ignored us… lol I’m sure I’ll write a chapter about that… to unleash my frustration.. LOL
Since we cross the city it was really late and we change the idea of haveing lunch for having the dessert. A big one… lol

img_20161119_154429

And… my boyfriend had the great idea of keep walking more far away to the periphery cinemas. We watched “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”  This was one of those movies I don’t hope I like… and WOW! it was a surprise, I even  enjoy it more than some movies of Harry Potter… some of the middle ones… don’t judge me!  xD

Movie finished to 19:20 or 7:20 pm. And… we went home walking. Yes!. I used for first time mi “Mi Band 2” <3 . I got it the monday but I didn’t walk so long till yesterday to really test it.

Last stop before get home was in a supermarket, shopping the dinner.
img_20161119_223441

It wasn’t really as great was it look, it tasted a bit to plastic… but when you usually cook your own food, almost all you buy taste like that… lol
Anyways I dont regret of getting it. It was a fast dinner, and a weekend caprice.
Next week is going to be a very super long healthy week! haha nah, I’m already missing my vegetables >…< with a lot of cheese on them.. haha

Latte Coffee >.<

I watch a lot of cooking youtube channel while I’m working. Last one I’ve discovered is Honeysuckle. And this afternoon I tried one of her recipes >.<

Oh my…. I have a french coffee machine so sometimes I miss a lot a good latte and I didn’t find a really good recipe yet till I watched this one.

IMG_20161118_165218.jpg

Well I didn’t decor it, I hadn’t cream or sweets at home so….U.U (we are very healthy lately :O)  but it was delicious!

I put on the milk, cookies, chocolate, vanilla esence and cinnamon all powdered and boiled. I mixed with coffee and then I add the sugar, only the quantity to taste.

I know I shouln’t drink it very often but I have to take advantage of it’s weekend!

yesss >…<

It’s Friday! :D

And It’s Sunny! yay!

It’s not like i’m going anywhere outside today actually, but it’s less cold lol

This morning I went on live in picarto. I thought it would be a nice idea make a Remake of first chapters of Anne, so that is what I’m going to do during the streamings every week.

Screen Shot 2016-11-11 at 14.41.53.png

The result it’s now available in my patreon wall. I want to upload the speedpainting when I got a few free time to youtube too all the patreons who missed it.

And talking about my trivial things =3
Yesterday night i got a new bag, mine it’s horrendously old. Its cloth has the paint off and I had to sew the strap some weeks ago. Yep… I’m very attached to that bag and all my confortables clothes and tools >.< It’s hard to me just rid of them even if they are dying lol
But this new bag was handmade by my mom! so it helps a lot to replace it lol. She started last week a workshop o TshirYarn, and She’s doing a lot of cool stuff. Pillows,  Baskets, and my bag. I just asked her a new basket for the cats :D I’ll show you when she’s done with it.

Here it’s my bag, I asked for a pocket inside :D

See you tomorrow!

Teksu

What I’m watching.

Wednesday it’s cheaper go to cinema that is closer to my house, so that’s the day I usually go with some friends. Yesterday we saw Doctor Strange!
It started to raining on our way to cinema… I thought the room would be empty but it wasn’t, it was full. I enjoyed it very much, it’s not one of my favorites of super heroes but it has one of best end resolution for my taste. It help a lot I like so much Benedict Cumberbatch, I mean the way he works, I’m not a fangirl of any actor, I left those days behind… lol

It’s been a lot since I was in cinema, I got netflix and I also was very disappointment with my latest visits so I only go when I read on internet it can be really good. One of my favorite movies it’s Interstelar, and sadly I missed, I’ve loved watched on cinema, even crying in front of people lol.

I was a huge manga fan reader and anime too but I stopped whatching and reading a lot since I started working on Anne. I don’t have so many time, and usually when I start watching something I’m easily addited and I can’t just watch 1 chapter per day, so I feel very guilty “wasting” so many time.
So.. I divided the series in Two lists:
#1 what a watch alone & #2 what I watch with my boyfriend.

#1 series doubled to my language so I can work on Anne while I’m listening and keep a eye from while. Usually it’s content funny or romantic but too dorky? (not sure if it’s the right word) or cheesy, mainly series I know my boyfriend wouldn’t like it, sometimes I’m wrong about them, Oups!

Some of them I remember now are: The Mindy Project, Haters back off (I was wrong with this one), Unbreakable (kimmy schmidt), Gracie and Frankie, Modern Family, Jane the virgin, Isabel (Spanish), Chewing Gum, Switched at Birth (I’m not sure why I keep watching this one… lol I dont like too much but it entertains me.) Lovesick, Easy, Faked, etc.

#2 More interesting series, because usually are the ones I wouldn’t never find by myself because the sypnosis doesn’t say anything to me and then wow! they become some of my favorites series. Also they are the ones which inspires me to writting very much.

Watching right now (or waiting for next season):
Game of thrones! Of course. (they are filming right now in a village near of my city, I’ve some friends who has a friend who will be playing as extras next season >….< ) WestWorld, We just discovered. Really interesting, very misterious and suspense. (By Jonathan Nolan, J.J abrams as producer and Anthony Hopkins in cast big names are lately appearing on series! yep yep yep) Orphan Black (we took a look to it without any expectation and it surprised us very much but from 2 season it’s not so good, in season 4 looks like it’s getting better again, I’m waiting for 5, its the last one! )
And waiting for new season: Sense8, The get down, Stranger Things, One-Punch Man, Attack on Titan,  Black mirror (we just finished the new season), Rick & Morty (this one went from list #1 to #2 haha) Bojack horseman.

And I’m pretty sure I’m forgetting to mention one or more very good but I can remember. U.U

Now I’m going to back to work >.<

Descansando….

Este viernes estaba derrotada así que decidí descansar sin tocar el ordenador hasta el lunes para continuar con el siguiente capítulo de Anne :D
Jo jo jo ilusa………

El viernes por la mañana me puse a ver anime, tenía muchas ganas ya que desde que empecé a escribir Anne no he consumido apenas ningún tipo de contenido, (salvo peliculas de serie B (tiene su historia…*))
Por cierto topé con la serie “Gangsta” que esta chula. Me recordó vagamente a Samurai Champloo y Cowboy Bebop <3
Después de comer estaba re-diseñando a Edward y dibujando a Charlie… modo automático…
El Sábado vageé un poco más pero aun así también estuve dibujando a los Chicos de Anne….

edwardScreen Shot 2015-09-13 at 01.34.00

Se nota un poco en las pintas mi predilección por Charlie en estos momentos… pero es que Edward sigue desaparecido >…<  ya le mimaré cuando llegue… jo jo jo

Por cierto el traje de Charlie es de la película Gatsby 

Estuve como tres horas con la chaqueta… y al final lo borré todo y se quedo echa en 5 minutos cuando encontré el color de los coj***** xD

El domingo inocentemente mirando deviantart me acordé de que podía participar en algún concurso, que me viene muy bien para desconectar de Anne…(si no desconecto de vez en cuando no se me ocurren ideas frescas… U_U)  pero lo que iba a ser un simple dibujito… lo he terminado hoy…

SaekoxAkashi
No es que estuviera todo el día trabajando como cuando dibujo el comic, pero quizás unas 3 – 4 horitas cada día he podido echar… el año pasado por ejemplo dibujar todo ese tiempo seguido era un récord… xD no dibujaba tanto desde los 12…
Estoy bastante contenta con la velocidad que he ido cogiendo desde que empecé el comic. Sobretodo con la linea (o “inking”).

También he re-diseñado a una nueva Femina que aparecerá en “breves”. Con la cual estoy muy emocionada >.<
Y tengo planeado un capítulo especial para halloween, al cual tengo que escribirle el guión, porque la trama ya la tengo XD

Y creo que eso es todo… puede que no esta semana no haya capítulo de Anne ya que estoy organizando los guiones, lo bueno es que cuando acabe tendré guiones listos para 4 – 5 semanas seguidas. Y como en este punto lo tengo todo enlazado no puedo ir preparándolos conforme los escribo ya que muchos detalles han cambiado, y tengo que reescribir para unir puntos.
Como ya escribí en el Q&A del comic, la historia está escrita así que mi meta por ahora es desarrollar y desarrollar sin que descarrile, la buena noticia es que todo va bien a día de hoy! xD

*¡ah!, lo de las peliculas B es porque como el reparto suele ser más bien feete, no me importa escucharla de fondo sin mirar, así las pongo mientras dibujo. Lo hago cuando estoy saturada de escuchar música… xD
