I was way too stressed out to stay away from the internet.
I have now reached the conclusion that especially during finals, internet access should be permitted. Otherwise, I become a compressed gas chamber waiting to burst.
Yesterday could have been absolutely dreadful had I not made the decision to just let everything go and watch a movie. I watched Howl's Moving Castle again, but this time in English, which was amusing to say the least. I don't know who thought it would be a brilliant idea to have Christian Bale go Batman on Howl but it certainly wouldn't have happened if I had been in the executive chair.
However, I felt so much better after watching the film a few times on loop and meanwhile drawing this as a stress-reliever. I realized that drawing happy faces releases my sadness. It worked before, too, when I was drawing that One Piece illustration. I think this is my own way of creating value out of obstacles. The Howl group pic took about 7 hours, but it didn't feel laborious at all! I enjoyed every brush stroke! c:
