“Boys’ Party” Cedar Park, 2017

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Here’s a photo of Koa and his buddies playing video games. He had a bunch of friends (6; all boys) over to hang out, eat pizza, and generally goof off. It was pretty fun, as far as I could tell from all the laughing. I think it’s pretty easy to take care of boys… or maybe it’s just because I have no idea what girls his age do for fun when they get together. ‍♂ It’s a huge mystery.

Anyways, video games, kicking the soccer ball around at the park, and pigging-out on pizza are easy things for me to understand. ⚽️

I hope you had a nice day!



Yay, Splatfest has begun! I am really enjoying Splatoon 2 on the Switch. It’s so fun! And today when I started the game, the square was a huge dance party. It’s very cool I could watch Pearl and Marina all day. And the Inklings have some nice dance moves too. Very cool!

Check out this video of the song “Ebb and Flow” that they sing during Splatfest:

For the US Splatfest, there’s a Halloween theme and the teams are Vampire vs. Werewolf. I chose Team Werewolf, so if you see Sachiモン in-game, that’s me! I have to say, Splatoon is one of my favorite games because A) I don’t suck, B) the clothing options are really cool and cute, and C) the weapons are so varied and fun.

Is anyone else playing?

Missing Piece

“Body-chan” Cedar Park, 2017


Today I received a “Body-chan” poseable figurine for drawing. It’s pretty cool and you can pose it in so many anime-style positions. It even includes props like a laptop, cellphone, sword, gun, etc. And maybe about 10 different hands. The bummer is that a critical piece is missing: the piece that connects the support to the stand. Without it, the figure cannot be held up vertically. 😤 I’ve contacted customer support to see if I can get a replacement part, but I’m not too hopeful since it was imported from overseas and it took so long to receive in the first place. I guess I need to figure out a new way to rig it up.

I hope you had a nice day!


Curry and a Sketch

Just like the title says!

For tonight’s sketch, I looked at a reference photo of Koshiba Fuka 小芝風花 for the hair, but the face I drew from scratch. I’m happy with how it turned out! 😄

こんばんは。Tonight I did this little sketch. I’m satisfied but not satisfied with it. Satisfied because I think I made progress and identified a lot of things I have no idea how to do. But not satisfied because it looks a bit “off” to me. But, as the first one like this, I’m more happy than not. And I had a lot of fun sketching it!

In other news, I was informed by good ol’ WordPress that it’s been 11 years since I joined WordPress.com. I’m not exactly sure when I started using WordPress as my blogging platform, but I’ll enjoy the award nonetheless. 😀

To see all the sketches I've been working on, you can check out the Flickr album "My Sketching Journey", or my Instagram account barron.sketches which I created just for posting sketches, watercolors, and stationery items.  

I hope you had a nice day!

こんばんは。Tonight’s photo is of yesterday’s sketch, but scanned and printed. I removed the hair, though, and will use this to trace and then practice different hair techniques. I need the practice, that’s for sure! 😀

I hope you had a nice day!
