Okay, so after I have been drawing some stuff... intending it to be good and to use for a Christmas card... I'm now itch to draw more and to do more. Plus having just both a tablet (pen mouse) make me want to do a CG. In addition to that, yesterday when I was at a bookstore, I saw and bought a CG book.
So here I am... having been sitting in front of computer all day trying to do what I forgot (since I haven't do it in such a long time) and feel at some level accomplished. I sat and think about what should I do.. since I just don't want to do random pic (I have a lot of that already). I finally decided... a tarot cards set. I always interested and read tarot card by myself from time through time.
Okay... if you know about Tarot card you know that it included with two big parts, major arcana and minor arcana. The major arcana included with 22 cards, and represent most important read in the reading. While the minor arcana devided in to four groups, cups, swords, wands, and pentacles, and each has 14 cards...which make the total of 56 cards. So in total a tarot card sets (full) is included with 78 cards.
I'll be death before I draw and do CG to all of that!! LOL No, I'll only do the major arcana part. 22 of them... the problem is the idea... will have to make it look different and look "me" as in my own version of tarot card. LOL
But don't expected too much from me, I'm only amateur CGer. I'm not good at it... and I'm barely a good drawer/artist. So add that and that together, you know what you can expected. LOL
But hey... if not, here's one that I did today. Comments are welcome and much appreciated.
Card major arcana number 0, The Fool.
Next project... major arcana number 1, The Magician....

This post is totally randomness on one of my all-time favourite rock band. "X Japan". If any of you love Japanese music, J-pop, J-rock, or what ever J you like , and you don't know X Japan... I must ask you where were you??
X Japan is probably one of the legendary in Japan... from 1980's on... They are th greatest rock band of their time. Many bands nowaday still hold them as model.. as someone to look up to... They were the first band to start the Visual Kei period, which is the visual dress up theme.
They were the first rock band that got to perform their concert in Tokyo Dome... which origianally are famous for Baseball and Pop music concert only.
And here I am... watching once again the DVD of their last concert in 1997... Still sad that they broke up... but I understand.. things always changed... and people moved on. But they still are the best rock band ever in my eyes and heart.
I don't know how many times I have watched this DVD... and I thought that I know it all... still... I can't take my eyes off the TV screen. See them there... playing... singing... break my heart once again. Listening to their musics... tears formed in my eyes. Remember of the old days... when I listened to their songs all day long, and there's nothing more that I wanted to make me happy.
Watching him there.... "hide" (pronouce he-dae).. there on the stage playing his yellow guitar with red hearts all over it... make me sad. It have been 6 years that he passed away. He passed away one year after the band broke up... such a tragedy. We were all sadden and shocked by the news. He was a kind of man who always make people laugh and smile... and to think that we would never see his smile again... drove many of us the the edge of sanity... Many couldn't take the reality and chose the easier way of escaping life altogether... wishing to meet "hide" again on the other side of that river.
Watching "Toshi" (pronounce toe-shi) there singing his heart out to us... bleed over the lyric and songs. With stained of tears still visible on his cheeks... though he covered his probably red eyes with sunglasses. Knowing that he was the one who cause the band to breke up... when he chose the different path from them... knowing that his bandmate couldn't replace him with any other guy... It will not be "X Japan" without Toshi.... but still he had chose it... we understand.
"Pata" (pronounce pa-ta) and "Heath" (pronounce heat) there on the stage together withthe band for the last time...
And "Yoshiki" (pronounce yo-shi-ki), what can I say about him? An all-round musician who just have the umlimited passion for musics. He's the heart of the band... and of my heart... watchin him there playing his crystal dum set... with neck-case because the doctor wouldn't let him play it without one... to many injuried happened to the guy's neck. Only God knows what would happened if he hurted his neck again, the back-bone is not something you should take it for granted. And knowing that his wrists probably still hurted... why he have to always pushed himself over the limited?
And there they are... together for the last time. With 50,000 fans in the Tokyo Dome as witnesses... for their last live. Watched them played till they collapsed... because they know.. that this is really the last time they can do that.
And when it all ended... they left the stage... empty... fans cried out for them... begging for them to come back.. but not anymore.
And who would have thought.... that when they're together again... all five of them.. it was one year later... at "hide"'s funeral. Playing "Forever Love" for the very last time... to send off their dear friend to eternal sleep...
