Sweet zombie jesus

Studying did not go very well today , I was distracted way to easely and couldn't focus
so I decided to try out the new paint set my mom has bought for me.
You have to know I'm a terrible painter , really. Back in my highschool days I used to screw up every painting I ever had to make it was terrible and the art teacher was never happy.

But so far for the complaining ,
I drew my favourite futurama cast members on the back of my noteblok and when my boredom reached a critical level I decided I would try to color the pencil drawing with the paint set
and this is the result :

Not that bad isn't it ? =) although there is definitely room for improvement it still is sooo much better then everything I've painted so far and I'm childishly happy about it.

The eagle has landed

The year is 2009.*dramatic tune*
40 years ago the crew of apollo 11 was the first one to land on the moon and so beat the Russians in the cold war space race.
To celebrate this epic moment in history James may made this awesome documentary which I saw yesterday.

He got to interview moonwalkers like charlie duke and he got the chance to be a passenger in a U-2 plane wich would take him 21km straight up so he could see the earths curvature.
Of course he had to endure a 3day training(shown in "James May at the edge of space")

I've always had a strange fascination with space(travelling) and being an astronaut is without any contest the most fascination profession ever . Hell I would donate a kidney to be able to go on a Nasa mission !
So I really enjoyed this documentary and even cried a little when May was 21km above the ground and watching down at planet earth.
This whole thing made me think about applying for Nasa , when I ever get my science degree.
I do know it's a bit idle hope and the chances for me actually going into space are reaaally slim/practically nonexistant.
But hey, a person can dream right ?

But you can call him V

"VoilĂ ! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished."
But you can call him V :

I just loooove V for vendetta both the graphic novel and film.

yesterday I finally finished this drawing and I'm quite happy about it , although I do need more sorts of pencils since this is drawn with a 2B pencil only.
Also I've decided to save money for a wacom bamboo fun tablet, I really want to try drawing digitally.
