The Sironu Alphabet
The Sironu Alphabet
Sa Sironu Albeda /sa si.' al.'be.da/
This is the long-overdue update of my alphabet.... There have been several alterations, especially with the orthography.
In this layout, first will come the letter, then its name, and last the sound(s) it makes. Letters will have elaborations where needed.
A - al /al/ - /a/
B - be /be/ - /b/
C - ceie /' - The letter C is virtually nonexistent in Sironu, and only used in scientific/medical/etc. contexts, in which it is pronounced as the word dictates. When directly borrowing foreign words, ceie is changed into K, Q, S, or X depending on its original sound and the vowel it precedes.
D - da /da/ - /d/
E - eh /e/ - /e/
Y - ygri /'ɪ.gɾe/- /ɪ/
F - fi /fi/ - /f/
G - ga /ga/ - /g/, /tʃ/ before E or I
H - hen /hen/ - /h/ at the beginning of a word, silent everywhere else.
I - io /jo/ - /i/, /j/
J - jo /dʒ/ - /dʒ/ Jo is a sparsely-used letter in Sironu, generally used in foreign loanwords.
K - ku /k

So tired of not achieving what you want?
So tired of not achieving what you want?

Everyone has something they really want dearly, a career, to have a certain loved one, to be able to make certain things...
The most common one among us artist are:
- I want to be able to draw better
- I want to be able to draw like "this"person.
- I want to earn money with my drawing.
- I want to be able to draw what I imagine in my head.
- I want more people to appreciate my art.
- I want more feedback from artists I admire.
- I want more..
- I want better....
All this wanting.. dreaming of... hoping for.
How about doing it!! With these sort of "wants", it's a matter of DOING IT!
How? You ask?
There are many ways, but the usual and only answers to those desires are: 
- Spend the most time you have on drawing/painting.
- Go and ask people for help, it is okay to do so!
- Look at that amazing artwork and try and figure out how this person made it, perhaps he/she will tell you? Perhaps this person has made a video or tutoria

What to do as an artist in training.
There are many ways to Rome they say. But I meet a lot of aspiring artists lost and asking me for guidance
and this is what I tell them.
(This is a revisited version of an old journal with new and updated guidelines/info)
Find out what you really want to do with art, there are so many different professions or hobbies to take on.
Graphic designer, Concept artist (mobile and high end), Illustrator of book covers or for card games and so much more.
Once you can make your pick, or at least pick 1 or 2 you must do research on the most valued artwork from that niece. 
Find out what makes the best artist of your favorite field the best artist. What do they paint? How do they paint it? With knowing this you can find out about the things you need to study.

The most basic study aims are the following:

:bulletblue: Lighting.
What forms of light art there? And how does it influence things?

Let's code! Pushable Buttons
You all know buttons, because buttons are everywhere. We mostly take them for granted. They are there to direct us to somewhere else and God protect a button that doesn't do exactly that. We rarely give them a second thought, despite the fact that the appearance of a button is as much a design choice as any other element; a button can make or break a design.
Small advice: Simple (or rather: easy to navigate) is the new black. We established that buttons are part of that equation. It is my experience that buttons in journal designs aren't that highly sought after. People want them for their function, and even then rarely use them. Myself, I love to make buttons for one simple reason: It's a tonnage of fun.

(Better bio pending)
I've decided to leave this account and begin anew under a different name. SonarSnow has been my pseudonym for a long time; I don't remember how long I've had this name, exactly. Now, however, my life is in a transition. I'm currently in my senior year (grade 12 for those not familiar with the American system), and sooner than I could expect, I'll be out in the harsh reality of earth. Changes are happening all around, and really, Sonar as a name just doesn't click for me anymore.

I'm now Indigo Ink, the fennec fox with rainbow ears. You can call me Indigo, Indy, or Indykins. I haven't drawn much other than the avatar you see, but hopefully soon I can come up with a reference sheet, which I'll post on my new account. My old fursonas, Saguarus and Cascadia, are no longer so for a couple of specific reasons that are fairly difficult to explain, but they are still cherished all the same.

I'll be leaving this account up for posterity's sake, as well as to direct those who stumble upon my older art to my new profile. Things will be much more organized and clean in my new profile, and I'll post there more regularly (I hope). I'll also implement a new way for people to give me feedback on my art, so stay tuned for that.

*gives a nostalgic sigh* A new name, a new fursona, a new chapter in my life. I thank each and every one of you for taking the time to look at my art, and read this journal. I'll post a new one once I have my new account all set up and ready to go, which may be SonarSnow's final journal. I'll say goodbye to you all, but I won't be leaving. I'll just see you whenever you come on in and see the product of my new life.

Hasta la vista, los amo para siempre.
