Hey, anyone who has stopped to listen!
I’d like to start by saying- Welcome to the about page! Thank you for taking the time out of your day to stop by my blog. It really means a lot to me.
Ok, enough of that.
I’m Wesley, your non-typical teenage boy. I like to draw, take photos and edit them, listen to and make music, watch anime, and play video games (Ok, maybe that last one wasn’t that out of the ordinary). Along with that, I also am a (so-far) self-taught piano player, though I still have a lot to learn with it. I probably will take lessons for it sometime in the future. I also played clarinet in middle school for 3 years. In addition, I arrange and have started to compose songs in my spare time.
As for what kind of music I listen to, I’ll give it to you straight: Japanese music. Now, before you click away in disgust, it’s not the kind of groups that have ten million members and/or sound really cutesy. My favorite group is the exact opposite of that. That group would be Kalafina (known for work in the Kara no Kyoukai, Puella Magi Madoka☆Magica, and Fate franchises). My favorite songs by them would be red moon, sprinter, and seventh heaven. Links are provided, so make sure to check them out! This is only the tip of the iceberg, as all of Yuki Kajiura’s songs are great (Yuki Kajiura is the composer for Kalafina). Along with YK/Kalafina, other favorite artists of mine include FictionJunction (also composed by YK, and shares some vocalists), Aimer, and Sound Horizon (sharing a couple vocalists with FJ)/Revo. GARNiDELiA, Sawano Hiroyuki, and Ling Tosite Sigure would also make the list. And for you non-Japanese music listeners out there (which is probably most of you), I’m also a HUGE fan of Evanescence and Amy Lee. Some of my favorite songs by her are My Heart is Broken, Like You, and Imaginary. As for Anime, my favorites would be Puella Magi Madoka☆Magica, Kara no Kyoukai, and PandoraHearts. You can check out my anime list here.
Mainly what I use to draw are your standard pencils (whether normal or colored) and paper. What I also often use to draw is a game for the Nintendo 3DS called Pokémon Art Academy. Though this game obviously has the Pokémon label on it, that’s not what I draw using it. I mainly got it because I loved Pokémon as a kid (it’s still a guilty passion of mine…), and wouldn’t mind learning how to draw using the creatures instead of random elements that the main Art Academy games conjure up. I use my Samsung Galaxy s7 for many of my photos as of late (since June 2016), but before that I used the terrible, terrible 0.7 megapixel camera of the iPod Touch 4. Though with either device, I then will take the image into whatever app I feel like using and all hell breaks loose from there. Some apps I recommend for Android include Snapseed, Blender, and Prisma.
As for when I post, I’ll give it to you straight: Whenever I feel like. Whether it’s bi-weekly, weekly, or monthly, it doesn’t matter.
Once again, I thank you for taking precious time out of your day to stop by my blog. It truly means a lot to me. Feel free to leave any comments, questions, critiques, etc. as you feel the need to. I’m still learning how to traverse the art world, so these will help tremendously.
Have a nice day! (^o^)/
PS: If you haven’t noticed already, my favorite color is Cerulean, as indicated by the title of two of my posts.
