Recently I saw PewdiePie‘s videos of him playing Journey. It’s a game for PS3 so I personally can’t play this, but just watching it got me. I was almost crying at the end. Such a beautiful game. Basically you don’t really have to do many things, just go ahead and do smaller tasks, so it’s not that interactive if I can say that, but. BUT. I think there’s no need for more interactive stuff. The creators put pretty much on the atmosphere and the design and the look. It’s quite simple but really really beautiful.
You start in the middle of a desert and all you can see are tombstones and a mountain in the distance. Through your travel you get to know the story behind your nation. In the end can’t actually tell what happens and that’s a good thing. It leaves it open to your interpretation and also makes it mysterious. The whole game itself is magical not only because you hvae some kind of power, but the environment and design. Also it’s very innocent in my opinion. And you have a companion along the travel who is a random player online, but you become true friends. You can see their name at the vrey end of the game.
I found a parallel with life in it. Our character has a goal, to reach the top of the mountain and works hard to achieve it and at the end (if you watch all the credits, you fly back to the beginning and you can start a new journey. It’s like when you set yourself a goal, you shouldn’t give up but make it through and when you get to the end and success, you can find and set a new goal, a new journey, but now, on a higher level. If you play it you’ll understand.
If you’re planning to play it I recommend not watching whole playthrough videos, you should experience it for the first time. It sure will carry you with itself. But if you really want a sneak peak, here’s Pewds’ video:
So Hurricane and I kinda started running our blog finally and we’re trying to post as often as possible. I’m gonna show you the header in the original size cause on tumblr it had to be smaller.
I hope you like it. I’m not quite satisfied with myself (my legs look weird and stuff) but I think Hurricane turned out pretty good. When I was looking for a colour for his shirt – I wanted pink for him but meh (just kidding) – I found this tone of greyish-greenish blue and I just puked rainbows I loved it so much. I should’ve saved this colour though. Anyway as whole it’s kinda okay I think. If it wasn’t I wouldn’t go fixing it, cause I’m a lazy fuck.

I liked this movie. It’s not that kind of big deep movie, it’s rather for people my age. Though it has some twists and secrets and in the end most of the things get clear but not everything.
Starts off with Charlie who’s beginning his first year at high school and doesn’t have any friends. Then he decides he should find some buddies to make life bearable. That’s when he gets to know Patrick and Sam, who take him to a party and introduce some other people. So finally he has friends and things get complicated. Following the events we get to know a little about his past.
I really loved the feeling of this movie, I can’t really describe it, so I recommend you to watch it.
Except watching this movie I haven’t done anything today. I only did some ( a lot of ) chemistry and done… I was sitting in my chair and sometimes I ate something. Not very productive…
I finally had Kung Fu training today, and it felt so good having some excercises. I do Wing Tsun Kung Fu which is a kind of self defense, street type (correct me if I’m wrong). Actually I’ve noticed that I’ve started using it in the everyday life. Like my reactions are faster (well, still not fast enough for real Kung Fu) and if I’m under some kind of attack even if it’s playful I attack back and attack on the weak points. Don’t get me wrong I’m only attending the trainings for like a year and a half, so these are just slight changes, but noticable.
I continued drawing the header for http://capricane69.tumblr.com and I started coloring which is I think my weak point cause I need to practise it more and I don’t really like coloring but whatever. Colours make it interesting. Here’s a sneka-peak:
Maybe you can guess who’s illustrated.
I haven’t done any chemisrty parts today so I think I’m gonna do some now. Time’s running out and tempus neminem manet.
I wanted to get up at 7 today, but I somehow overslept despite the alarm. Then I sat down to draw for Hurricane’s and my tumblr a header. I had to realize that I’m not used to drawing on my tablet anymore. That’s really sad, so I’ll start practising. Anyway I could draw the lineart for the header (kinda). So here’s a WIP pic:
I’m not quite satisfied how it looks, but meh… I’ll finish it anyways, maybe it’ll look better after I colour it.
Around 4 I started preparing for my chemistry exam and HOLY SHIT I have a lot of things to do. I was doing it UNTIL 20:30!!! My head aches terribly. And I’m done with only 13,5 out of 93 and I have two weeks left. Fortunately I’ll have a week exam break before the event, so I hope I’ll have time to learn everything and memorise all this bullshit. (Note that I actually like chemistry but an exam is an exam deal with it…)

Woke up to the beautiful view of the frost covered trees and grass, and couldn’t resist to take some pictures. Shamefully they aren’t very good though. Anyway I think these two are bearable:
Believe me it looked magical.
I actually slept till like 12 o’clock. Then I started searching about canadian universities, especially UBC and U of T. I may want to go there after finishing high school, but first I can’t decide to try going to UWC programme first or not. It might help me get in to universities abroad since I’d get an International Baccalaureate.
I went skating with my brother. There were a LOT of people. At first I could barely move faster than a beginner. And there were a lot of annoying habits like skating backwards and going out of the rink sheer. And the best:
And you can’t just pass them by cause there’s a crowd everywhere. But near the end it was cool finally and I could skate in a normal speed.
This is a trial at the moment, I’m checking if I should start this new blog actually, or keep my older one . This blog will be about my artistic stuff, and some personal if I feel like that, I really hope you will like it if I decide to start this new one .
