Stress relief

I think I may have gone missing the whole day because I got a bit preoccupied reviewing and answering the mountain of questionnaires I collected throughout my college years. (It's literally a mountain)

As you can see ;;-;; but before studying, my mom dragged me to the fresh market with her and she bought this sea mantis that tasted so good when cooked wuth coconut milk

Then by the evening, after I finished cramming a single semester's worth of lectures into my brain and answering at least a few sheets of the questionnaires... I gave up and gave myself sketching time

Excuse my dog. He won't leave my desk alone. He turned it into a bed somehow πŸ˜‘

I used charcoal this time because penning it would take so long. I started around 9:45 then by 11:27 this was whatever I managed to finish.

I'll continue this tomorrow and maybe be around then. I'm too sleepy and drained from cramming to still attempt to do much, honestly. That's all from me today. I hope you enjoyed seeing this flower's progress so far

Still a very nice drawing shaping us considering so much you had to do. I am a multitasker myself and know how it feels

The answer is shading and a good pencil. He's more a beat type that hates being told off but keeps yelling at me when he wants something

These days, all i do is lazy sketches. If I'm motivated, it's colorful and one that needs a lot of changing in the pen or coloring material I'm using but if it's just monotone, I'm lazy then and just needs stress relief

artists change pens during sketching? ohh interesting... i am learning so much in this convo haha maybe you can write an article with 'facts' about sketching or something like that when you're not busy or lazy hehe

Yeah. Like normally i have 3 shades of graphite, charcosl, ball pens, colors that range from lightest to darkest since my hands are so light, i need to use all 3 but if I'm lazy. I go straight to the darkest and just draw using only that like i did with that drawing

oh I see... did you study how to draw or it's something that you're just fond of and have skills with

Both. i think I've mentioned enough that art and creative writing was my depression therapy. When they saw I could draw well, they referred me to an art class then when my neighbor saw i could draw, he provided me models and the extreme art training then gallery and exhibit tours. I hated having to draw nude guys and girls the most in those classes ;-;

but you can draw nude people? i mean it looks hard with all the shadings. hands are hard enough to draw

What questionnaires are those? The sea mantis look very fresh. I wonder is seafood cheap in Philippines? How is the laptop situation? I love the water droplets that you drew on the petals.

For my graduation exam. They're serving as my review materials while I read the reference books. These ones are cheap. I bought a kilo for 3usd and they're enough for 3 meals, actually

Thank you. I wanted to try drawing thise again, recently but I'm not done yet

Your mountain is the daily amount of homework my child had to make at home. We gave up after a while. Whole day school doing? And after that time busy for hours a day without time to relax. That's what I call stress especially if you are 7 years old.

It's better to unload and you did it again. I wish you a great day. πŸ’•

I can sympathize with your 7 year old. I had a ton of books to go through at that age and so many wssays to write at that age. It juat got more complex as i aged but the amount never seemed to lessen ;;-;;

Thank you 😊 did you see the cute sea mantis though? I find it an amusingly delicious creature

I find the sea mantis scary not cute. I never ate it and doubt I ever will. Why is it that pale? I guess you don't keep it for a pet or?

My 7-year-old ended up depressed and with a broken ego at home thanks to a teacher and we changed schools. Strange is at school is teacher how to sit, stand, lift, the maximum weight children are allowed to lift but those books they drag around are 40 pounds!

It's a relative of the lobster and shrimp so it's that pale when uncooked. But it's so red once it does get cooked

Oof the school change was a hood move then else i can't even imagine how far gone that kid will be in a few more months of that

I never ate those creatures either. Is it cooked alive too? I believe that's no longer allowed with us since it's animal abuse too.

As much as possible, yes. It's sweeter when it's cooked alive but this one was dead by the time i saw in the fish market. Is eating seafood counted as animal abuse?

So the taste is different. That's interesting. I wonder if it's the same with fish, poultry and meat. πŸ€”

Yuppp it's the same with other meats too but as for fish, there's like... peak hours per fish. Something about basing it on how many hours since the fish has died because at some certain hours, the fish tastes the best but for fish like salmon and those made into sashimi like tuna, the fresher the better because the flesh is softer >w< if it's not fresh then i make it into ceviche

Thank you for the info. These days if I eat fish at all I assume it's always old. There are no fish shoos, no fish is sold on the market and I assume if there's any (it's vacuum wrapped) it's imported and therefore old.

Well vacuum wrapped ones still retain some freshness but yeah, it's better to just cook that in ceviche or cook it in a sauce because it won't have the same texture as fresh ones ;-; which really suck
