Leaving for Marching Band Camp

My best friend's house (that he moved in a few weeks ago) does not have internet. :/
His school does, but I will be busy with band camp. So I shall have limited access until Sat, Aug. 20.
He does have internet on his iPhone, but I can't download anything.
Feel free to leave comments and whatnot :) There will just be a longer delay in reply.

Yup. Tonight will be heading down to my best friend's high school (he's been the Middle School Band Director there for two years and now he's the Director of Bands because the high school director retired this year). I will be teaching at his band camp as a visual tech and trumpet sectional instructor. I play trombone, but someone else has the low brass because I wasn't sure if I would have a job yet and couldn't commit to doing his camp until now. Should be fun though! I'm pretty intense when it comes to marching band so hopefully I don't end up intimidating the trumpet section haha. I DEMAND PERFECTION. *says the person that came from a competitive marching band in high school*

I miss marching band!! Also, we're going to go down to Indianapolis, IN on Friday to see the DCI (Drum Corps Internation) Semifinals. If you don't know anything about drum corps, they are the ultimate in competitive marching band. You have to audition to join and you can't be older than 21 . Brass and Percussion only. And then they practice all summer and tour the country. I would have totally done something like this if I had the money!!


And Photoshop creativity took over for five hours yesterday. Hooray for changing my PoT/Fire Emblem characters' clothing colors! (Click the image to make it larger)



It all started when I was messing around and changing Sanada's armor colors. And then the dark blue/silver combination looked BA so I had to try it on the other two. Best friends need matching clothes!! :P It goes with my journal layout somewhat too haha...

Yanagi's robes were a MASSIVE PAIN (his original art did not have any color changes so I had to split everything into pieces. I had already done that w/ Sanada's and Yukimura's a year ago). Hopefully this random project helps me with this little writer's block on my PoT/FE story XD

... I just noticed the UNINTENTIONAL precarious location of Lord Yukimura's sword when I was re-reading the entry for errors. Uh... oops. I was only paying attention to how their heads were lined up and their spacing. Oy. *is hit with the flat side of Sanada's axe as he yells 'Tarundoru'!*

Thank you so much for your compliment! Lots of hard work went into it. I still think they need to change their school colors like that haha XD

It's not my first experience teaching band camp, but yes, it is fun right now (Day 2 done!). Talk to you later :)

Day 2. Done! It's been a fantastic camp so far :D It's intense yeah, but definitely nowhere as intense as the camps I've went through. I'm actually more worried that they will think I'm too intense!! XD

Have fun Sensei!!! *glomps*

...I didn't notice Yukimura's sword until you mentioned it.

Epic editing is epic. XD

Thank you very much pinku-san!! *hug tackles back*

I'm sorry, I had to mention it because I had to have looked at that final picture a good ten times checking for coloring errors and didn't see it until I uploaded it and typed out the whole LJ entry. And I pride myself on being observant too lolz.

It is indeed. Thanks for liking it. *oogles that the colors of EPIC some more*

...I'd tell you to have fun and stuff, but we may have already covered that in our epic phone conversation earlier! *grin*

Ah, what the heck, Have a Great Time at Band Camp! Inspire the heck out of those kids! :-)

And...yes, I see what you mean about that sword. It sort of explains that look of poised readiness of Sanada's! "If he moves, I'm over there." *giggles* (And Yanagi is totally thinking of ways to startle Yukimura, yup.)

Ah 'tis an epic convo it was! I love you :) And I will have a good time at band camp!

There is so much accidental perfection in that picture. And like you, I thought of the next second after this picture was 'taken'. Yanagi is devious - he probably did bump into Yukimura. Where is your RACKET GUARD?!?! XD
