updates & hot springs

2 tumblr themes
updated info page with more previews to past designs

Updated with two new lovely tumblr themes! I’m in a good mood for making tumblr themes. But really, after finishing one, I’m exhausted because usually when I make one, I just sit there and code for hours on end. Well, same with any sort of updates really. Tomorrow, I’m going with my grandmother to hot springs. I’m super excited, but that also means I won’t be updating even though I just have so much inspiration lately! I’m not sure why, but it feels great.

Anyhow, well, I watched a Japanese action/thriller movie yesterday titled Kaiji (based on manga/anime with the same name). It was very good. It reminded me a lot of Liar Game (manga/jdrama) because they both focused on strategy and mind games. The plot was really good, it’s a lot more segmented than I thought it would be (less anti-climatic than the sequel) but each game was very intriguing and unpredictable (in terms of process of solving the games).

The visuals were done well too, I’m guessing they had a formidable budget for this film, as it looks more quality than a lot of Japanese action movies. It’s not an artistic thriller, just a plan-old action… though don’t compare it to Hollywood ones, those tend to be a lot more flashy.

I really loved all the actors and actresses in Kaiji. I don’t know why, but Tatsuya Fujiwara really draws eyes to him when he acts, even though for some reason, he always makes the characters more pathetique than they’re supposed to be (such as in Battle Royale, where he plays Shuya). Like, I can’t stop watching him even though his character portrayals make them out to be lame (weaker characters?). I’m not quite sure how to explain it.

But oh goodness, the other actos and actresses’ performace was pretty much flawless. I love Yûki Amami (character was Rinko Endo) and Teruyuki Kagawa (character was Yukio Tonegawa), very powerful, credible acting. Definitely worth a watch if you enjoy Japanese action movies.

** STILL IN NEED OF FEEDBACK/SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT TO UPDATE

Hello there, long time no see. I got around to making a new design for Ettudis, and a number of updates. Summer vacation has already started for me (I’m in Taiwan, and oh god, it is so hot but so much good food and things to do!), so I’m taking things slowly and relaxing. I feel really rusty! I haven’t made much graphics in so long, I kind-of miss it. This version took a while to come out, I made a lot of drafts before finally settling on this design.

You’ll notice there are two matching page designs, and I wasn’t so sure about doing that, but I already designed it and all so why not. I’m slowly going to be updating some stuff. Tumblr business is booming and icons are easy to make so I usually work on those things the most. Though, I’m hoping to maybe update with some textures and tutorials.

Is there anything you guys would like to see? (I really need the feedback!) JUST COMMENT ABOUT ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING (including this version, do you like it?)

Eh… I don’t know what else to talk about. I feel like this website has started to become less personal because I don’t interact with my visitors as much on this. I spend most of my time on tumblr now (4+ blogs, otl). SO FOLLOW ETTUDIS ON TUMBLR!

Also, commissions are now open, please visit Quaero Quero for more details on how to order.
