What's with this?

I have never understood the insult "fag". I know it's derogatory for a homosexual but it's used very often over here in Scotland's armpit known as Edinburgh.[I love it really.] However, it is also known as a term for a cigarette, now what I'm wondering is. If someone is called a "fag", does that give you the option of picking them up and setting fire to their hair? Hmmm perhaps someone should test this one day, see if it stands in court.

Now onto excuses for my absence of artistic barf. One word. Exams. End of story. I have a maths National Assessment Bank on Friday, in other words they want to see if you can fail it so they can kick you from the class for the heck of it, stupid one would think eh?

Another pointless thing over here in Scotland is the Standard Grade qualification. It serves NO purpose what so ever apart from letting you move onto a much harder course which is known as a Higher.That's all very well and good but the leap of work applied to each is so huge that it causes people to stumble and fail these Highers with ease.Why not raise the bar for the Standard Grade SQA? Or even get rid of it all together and teach Highers over two years, that would make more sense that cramming two years worth of knowledge and teaching into ONE year. I mean I have an exam in a little over a week and they haven't even finished teaching me what I actually need to know to DO it.

Just a little peek into the Scottish schooling system for you, it has so many holes that it should be classified as a siv. I mean for the art exam you aren't even assessed on your artistic skills, only your essay writing skills, now some people classify writing as an art. I agree, it is, but not the kind that should be in an art class I would say it should be for English don't you think?

Anyway I'll stop the ranting and raving, as I have finally been able to doodle something up. Meet my space Kangaroo! He wants all of your croutons!

Procrastination is the devil. I managed to not procrastinate on my studies, but still managed to do so with my drawing.So I will shove up some old work again and hope that I will be able to draw something nice soon enough.

Old, incorrectly coloured AND it's blurred.Score one for the computer without a coloured screen...You may have won that battle but you will never win the war!

I seriously cannot wait for the Underfist. It sounds so very epic and is full of my favourite characters from Billy and Mandy, what more could I want? A new tablet maybe but that is besides the point. I have a very long wait but I bet it'll be worth it.Besides I get to be one of those fun people who glue their eyes to TV screens for their most favouritest show for once, what fun.

Now I will attempt to actually draw something before I go to bed...Maybe someone actually sticking their eyes to a screen...That would be funny wouldn't it?Yes. Just smile and nod.

Two games in one, Bomberman AND Resident Evil. How great would that be? Might ruin the cuteness, but I guess that would depend if you think gunslingers are cute or not.


I was playing Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles today. You know, kicking zombie butt and having a blast with the grenades...I was surrounded and had loads of ammo, perfect thing to have in such a situation! I was kicking so much tail, but then something horrible happened...My Wii mote ran out of batteries so all I could do was watch in horror as I was slowly devoured by leaches. What fun, eh?

Fweh, I was also watching "Emotional Skarr" today and decided to doodle this up!
Now if you'll excuse me, more zombies need to be destroyed! I'm armed with a belt load of batteries THIS time!

Bird Flu

It's a serious disease.
So is he, little sick Merb. Gotta love the Storm Hawks, even if the majority of the fandom are scary.

Serious thinking...

Wouldn't life be so much nicer and full of laughs if normal things, for instance shutting a door made fart noises? Seriously I think life would be a lot better... That and random sound effects.Like in cartoons...

Anyway, got my second Billy and Mandy DVD today, "Billy & Mandy's Big Boogey Adventure". Gotta say I'm very pleased with it even if I had to import it from the US and have to watch it on my laptop. Well worth it! Now I can only lay in wait and hope that CN will release the second season of Billy & Mandy on DVD, the show really deserves it after running so long with such success.Catching it on TV after school is going to have to suffice until then I guess.

Time for the, so far, daily doodleness! I don't know how on earth I'm going to keep this up with exams rearing their ugly head at the end of this month though.

Yadda yadda, blahblah blahblah?

Okay so I decided to make a blog, just a place where I could record my thoughts a little as well as spam up the place with a few of my doodles. Kinda like what I draw at night in my spare time which I wish I had more of...Then again don't we all?
Maybe I should have called this "Village idiot's art dump" that may have been more fitting. Ah well, bare with me.
I'll start by shoving up some stuff I doodled up last night, some sketches of Grim and Evil characters, colour was just splashed on them and they're very messy but that's how I do all my work at the moment...My tablet is a bit broken and I lack a decent scanner to show any traditional stuff, maybe later hm?
