I already thanked each one of you who wished me happy birthday on the 10th, but I wanted to thank you guys once more with a small feature. : )
From personal news: I'm going to Gdansk on Monday to deliver documents to my new uni (I'm going to be studying Scandinavian languages come October - in the end I did try out for the Music Academy, but I didn't pass the entrance exams - I actually played quite badly during them, so I completely understand why - seriously, had I been a part of the admissions board, I would have failed me, too). I'm still of two minds on how I feel about not getting into the Academy - there is a pang of regret, but also a lot of relief - music is an incredibly high-stress profession and I wasn't 100% sure if I'm really cut out for it. I've got a year to decide whether to try again next summer, but for now I'm more on the "nah" side. A bit regretfully, but still.
I've been sketching a lot lately, mostly trying to improve my figure drawing, also expressions and different faces in general. I'm quite happy to say that the improvement is definitely there, even though I'm not actually submitting those sketches here - I'm actually thinking of creating a blog to keep track of them in a more organized way. I don't really want to submit too many things other than photomanips here - the manips are, after all, why those of you who are watching me are interesting in what I post. ; )
I've also been thinking about setting up a small portfolio on tumblr, so I'm probably going to write a journal telling you about as soon as it's actually there.
And now - the feature. Thanks so much once more for the wishes. : )
