    Music and youtube at once = crazy

    Sir, I do absolutely everything with music playing so naturally YouTube falls under that list.

    🙃🙃🙃Too late.🙃🙃🙃They’re all gone.🙃🙃🙃

    What??? No! I wasn’t kidding, I wanted to watch the rest of those!

    However, I do plan on putting out a youtube video of another sort in the next couple months, so you’re welcome to spend your time watching that instead. 🙂

    Yeah, ok, I will, but I still wanted to see the other ones! I only watched like half of them. It was fun seeing your personality shine through.

    Your channel preview was my favorite, but you took that down two seconds after I found your channel. 🙁

    Be weird. Be random. Be who you are. Because you ever know who would love the person you hide.

    I HAVE NOT HAD A TEST IN uhh, 3rd grade….minus seven… twenty- nineteen…. carry the two…multiply by twelve… five, six. SIX YEARS SINCE I’VE HAD A TEST!!! NOTHING! I WAS THE WEIRDO WHO ENJOYED THAT STUFF IN PUBLIC SCHOOL, THEN I GET PULLED OUT TO NEVER BE SEEN AGAIN!

    Luckily I get them back next year! 🙂

    Look, tests are fun in elementary school when you can get a good grade and feel accomplished. They are not fun when it’s very hard, the stakes are high, and you’ve suffered for it for an entire year! You’ll see XD

    Ah, interesting. I’ll have to check into out! Tell me, how would you pronounce that?

    Your guess is as good as mine. Hmm, the show itself pronounces it as High-que. I might be wrong, it’s Japanese, I don’t speak Japanese XD

    IT’S SO GOOD THOUGH!!!! This is the first anime I ever watched and it’s so incredibly good, the writing is just *chef’s kiss* Honestly one of the best-written shows I’ve ever watched!

    Nothing that could be considered truly artistic in the adept painter-and illustrator type way. It’s just basic character art with basic backgrounds and the such. Transferring the art to after effects and animating it in an efficient way is what I’m stuck in right now. The animations are very basic (character movement, arm movement, things like that).

    All art is art and it’s all hard XD Especially if you’re new to it! Getting started is one of the hardest parts! Please feel free to ask if you want any advice on the actual drawing part (I have no experience with any of the other parts XD) I’m always excited to talk about art!

    I’m pretty sure this has something to do with the YouTube channel, correct? OSP style animated characters?

    I have free access to adobe programs through the career tech school I’m taking classes in, so I’m taking advantage of that while I can.

    That’s a great idea! Art is a lot of trial and error, always XD

    Oh, unrelated but also interesting! I finally finished the Delphine dress! It took me… almost five months but it’s finally finished! The embroidery was an absolute nightmare and I’m never doing that again but it looks really nice! I did the largest part of the embroidery while watching Haikyuu, that was awesome XD I could trick myself into actually getting stuff done XD

    I’ve been working a new job that’s been zapping my energy, lol. It’s not bad work–I groom horses and do some maintenance stuff on an equine farm–but it is pretty draining.

    Ohh, that’s awesome, but having worked with horses for a good while, draining is the only right word 😅 I don’t know why everything in the equine world is so heavy. Have you ever been around horses before?

    I’ve also been working through the final copy-edits on my book (which is releasing in less than two months?? What??) and I’ve started making headway again on a non-fiction book I’m writing.

    Oh, WOW, that’s amazing!! Congratulations! What’s the title, I’ll be looking out for it!

    Overly Sarcastic Productions? No, not really. Their’s has a very hand-drawn look, mine is really nothing like that. If things work out right, yes, I might use the art for youtube.

    Great! Send me a pic! I’d love to see it!

    So you’re able to embroider without watching the thread and your hands?

    Ohhh, that sounds really cool! I’d love to see it if you want to share!

    I will, I’ll see if I can get some nice pictures of it this weekend!

    So you’re able to embroider without watching the thread and your hands?

    Yes and no, it’s more like glance down, place stitch, glance up, pull it through, repeat. It’s surprisingly easy to do when you get used to it since embroidery requires no concentration XD I do most of my hand-sewing while watching movies, especially if I have to hem something by hand or sew a waistband, that takes forever anyway. XD

    Oh yeah, I do that with looming (aka loom knitting)

    Once you figure out a system and know exactly what you have to watch yourself doing, it’s pretty easy. Then of course you think “wow I am so good at this” and try to do one or two without looking at it and end up with a complete disaster. That’s always fun 🙂

    (also a friend of ours told me you said no arson. Did you that know that currently the south of the US’s motto is “shall not comply”? 😃)

    Yeahhh agreed. XD

    Have you ever been around horses before?

    I was a summer camp counselor at a Christian horse camp last summer, so I worked with horses for about three months there. I learn quickly and I’m pretty comfortable around (most) horses, so it’s a good fit for me. But I do feel out-of-my-depth sometimes since most of the folks I’ve worked with (both here and at the summer camp) have years more experience than I do and/or love horses. I like horses fine, but my real “horse phase” was a long time ago. XD

    Oh, WOW, that’s amazing!! Congratulations! What’s the title, I’ll be looking out for it!

    Thank you! It’s called Calligraphy Guild, and it’s actually available for pre-order if you want to give it a look. 🙂

    Nice. I’ve always found sewing and embroidery intriguing in the ‘this is a beautiful skill but I’m not touching it with a ten foot rod’ sorta way. 🙂

    Photoshop and Illustrator. Adequate tools. I hate my InDesign classes tho. 🙃

    Rose got me hooked on Krita tho and I think it’s much better, for me at least. Plus it’s free!

    Well of course. I expect nothing less than perfection!

    Obviously. I’m flawless. 😇

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh, is that why you have so many assignments to catch up on?   DON’T HURT, ME IM KIDDING!!!

    FYI I’M THE TEACHER’S PET!!!!!

    Lol, jkjk!!! I actually don’t have as many assignments to catch up on as a lot of my classmates but it’s really intensive I get 3 assignments a day typically.

    How is that something to cry about? XD Enjoy your freedom XD

    AMEN!

    We travel to PB church meetings quite often.

    Now I’m hungry.

    Ha, bet it’s better than (mylackof) animation.

    Do you want to know what excessive boredom is? Getting so bored I turn on one of you videos. That is like a new record of boredom.

    *chokes in hysterical laughter*

    NO NO NO!!! NOAH COCHRAN, YOU LEAVE THOSE VIDEOS RIGHT WHERE THEY ARE!!! IF YOU TOUCH THEM I WILL DRIVE TO COLUMBIA AND SLAP YOU! AND I ONLY LIVE THREE HOURS AWASO THAT’S NOT EVEN THAT OUTRAGEOUS SOUNDING! LEAVE. THEM. ALONE.

    I second, I only got enough internet to watch them recently.

    What…

    YOU TORTILINI YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *WACK!!!!* HOW DARE YOU I HAVEN’T WATCHED THOSE YET SO I CAN’T MAKE FUN OF THEM NOWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ikr, we should execute him by throwing him into a toxic vat of peanut butter.

    I just finished the InDesign section of my class. And…I can’t say I disagree. It’s more about it being useless for me than it being difficult though. After effects is by far the hardest.

    Yes, Cathy, we love to attend peanut butter church meetings. Just in case that wasn’t clear.

    Mwahahaha, I don’t have After Effects classes so I wouldn’t know!!

    Yeah, I mean InDesign is fine just so not intuitive compared to most layout softwares I’ve used, of course I’m still getting used to Word too sooo, I find placing pictures especially annoying, like why can’t I just drag them wherever I want!?!?!

    Yes, Cathy, we love to attend peanut butter church meetings. Just in case that wasn’t clear. 🙃

    *evil grinz*

    Peanut butter is yummi, definitely an example of God’s Love for us 🙃😉

    Hmmm, you might have but I don’t remember XD If you did, the icon was so small I couldn’t see anything, and it’s gone now since I resolved your comments. Don’t worry about it 😅

    Ohhh, that’s awesome! Yeah, I can definitely confirm that many horse people tend to be somewhat… obsessive about their hobby XD

    Ohhhh, that looks AMAZING!!! I’ll see if I can preorder the ebook sometime soon! Thanks for telling me about it!! (Also that art is GORGEOUS!!!)
