Building and decorating - anything is possible in games

There is limits what you can do in real life. You can't keep doing your decoration over and over again, plus of course it's lot of money to do that. Also, these kind of things are time consuming and take lot of energy. I've tried many decorating and building computer games. My ultimate favour of those is The Sims 4. I haven't played it a long time, but I really enjoy, how real like it is.

Most people use the game to actually play, but I only build and decorate. Usually I start from making the house, decorating it and doing the garden. Time to time if I see interesting house made of someone else, I might just decorate it myself. The game isn't the cheapest one to get, because the original game gives just some building options and you need to get game- and stuff backs to get more. Of course the original game without additions, is enough for some one, but I'm so strict that every  color and style has to mach perfectly, so it wasn't for me.

These photos are about my first house I ever made. Three floors, four bathrooms plus one toilet, vestibule, kitchen, utility room, living room with dining area, library, living room,  five bedrooms,  kind of art room or second living room. And of course the garden with pool and kitchen garden. Making kitchens and bathrooms. I mostly go with old school styles, more romantic, but I also try new styles.  I really but my best for this house so it took about three days, but I also learn mechanics at same time.

I can't write so much about this, but I wanted to show to you what possibilities there is to do. This isn't that working program for screenshots, so I took part of the wall away for moment to take better picture. @FromMadeByMeri

Working with a giant project

I've been busy and it's easy to see from, how often I've been writing lately. Anyways in beginning I promised for myself, that keeping the blog isn't going to be something, that I let to stress myself. I'm using all my time and energy for the work, what I'm doing right now. I don't want to tell more about it now, but for this post's sake, I need to tell, that I'm working with Photoshop and using hundreds of hours for this.

The biggest challenge for me is, that I don't remember to take a breaks. Somehow drawing with computer, doesn't feel same way working, then sewing or painting. I easily forget to drink or eat. Suddenly I notice,  that I've been drawing four hours and haven't moved at all. In long run, this is really stupid and I'm trying to focus specifically to this. Currently I'm "watching" Netflix while working. More like I have it open and I'm listening and time to time looking what is happening. My idea f…

Giving second change for my markers and buying new ones

I've been really into Inktober. Even more then I waited to be. I waited to have more problems with keeping this daily schedule, but surprisingly, only one day was hard to get anything done. I've been focusing to drawing so much and haven't really felt like writing. I think it's partly because, I've just been drawing and not doing that much anything else.

I've used almost completely my original markers. I had my first Sharpies ever and they used to be enough for me. Just because I didn't used to draw with them. I basically used those just for writing. They are okay and good for practicing, but now I'm needing more and I'm waiting from mail, my new Winston&Newton's Promarkers. I read and watched Youtube videos about, what would be the best for me. Copics are known to be the best, but the price is just way too much. I trust to Winston&Newton as brand, based of their other products, like paints. Also some artists actually prefer them, over C…

Art and feelings - hospital art

If you are saying that art doesn't wake any kind of feelings in you, you need to stop at next time and actually give a second to look at it. Art can be powerful tool and mood effective. I'm talking now specially about art in hospitals and other public places. In this context, art can be anything from actual painting or photography, to color of walls or pattern of ceiling. I'm always focused the patterns of air conditioner's grids. It sounds so small detail, but every hospital room has it and after laying somewhere hours, you'll start to notice details on roof.

I've got my dear share of hospital time. Time in waiting rooms, doctors offices, examination rooms, wards... There is usually one common thing. Something on walls, that is meant to make place to look nicer, warmer, more comfortable... Sometimes even more home like. It can be anything from doctor's kid's or kid patients drawings to abstract professional photographer's ink test like photos. Eith…
