WARNING: long, insignificant journal entry up ahead.
July marks my first year in IFS. To say that a lot of things have happened since I got here would be an oversimplification.

Stage fright kicked in for the first half hour of the demo, being unaccustomed to being watched while drawing and adjusting to a laptop's weird keyboard layout. Nevertheless, I finally became conscious of my drawing methods, more specifically my bad CTRL-Z habit hahaha
got a neat idea for a digital brush from plue yesterday... might be testing that one out on a new piece one of these days.
