SuperListenMode: Improv Class Episode 3

SuperListenMode: Improv Class Episode 3

I felt better with newbie scenes...here's some of the silly things I said during class 3. I was really nervous and stumped on what I could say...eep! Was actually considering quitting leading up to it.

Was a bit more expressive, silly and learning to not care too much.
But I was still scared about volunteering too early and ended up not participating that much - oh inhibitions. And didn't really socialise that much during the break...but it wasn't as exhausting as the previous class!

Noted that when you're doing this, you should embrace the mindset of having fun and let go of anxiety and dread. To think about other people you're engaging with instead, outside of your own mind. Also one should not do one liner jokes otherwise teammates get stranded in what to do next in a scene.

Had to remind myself that I was doing this for self confidence, character building in terms of being able to pretend to be all sorts of things, to be silly, to converse/talk without judgement and overthinking...not sure if I'm there yet at the time :< But I didn't feel as terrible afterwards.

And my glasses is the thing that people recognise me by...hm!!
But they're not my glasses anymore ;D

SuperListenMode: Improv Class Episode 2

SuperListenMode: Improv Class Episode 2

Where I realise it's getting harder. We actually have to make up lines, conversations and scenes and imaginary gifts!! Our brains melted from making up things :') I drank SO much water gosh! There were topics I noted like politics and sexually explicit things I was avoiding too :S

The listed games are not in any order or rank - it's just games that came to mind ;P It was here where I just knew I don't want to be an actor...I'm too attached to reacting as Leonie, not as spontaneous character Number 345! I'm stumped on this! Not that I was learning this to act! 

My comfort zone is definitely getting pushed haha 

As much as I dreaded redoing a scene from the start, people were positive, understanding and supportive! We're all doing our best :')

Afterthoughts: This is where aside from the intensity, I felt like I insulted people or felt uncomfortable with some topics :') I guess this is why I'm quiet or I ramble too much about things people don't care about ;P

SuperListenMode: My 1st Improv Class

SuperListenMode: My 1st Improv Class 

I started classes in February for several weeks because I wanted to meet more people & get out of my mind more,
embrace social mistakes/failures, 
not overthink about possibilities 
and making things up on the spot. 

Just get better at facing the fears rather than avoid it. 
It's like Primary School but with Adults ;D
Except there were a few things like eye contact and personal space I have inhibitions with...I did these comics right after the lessons actually :')

Yes that's my fetal position pose that represents me for one of those "get to know you" icebreaker games. Most people made themselves bigger and awesome for their alliteration names so I just expressed how I felt inside...I felt small, embarrassed and out of my comfort zone :<

But hey, everyone in the class had to do it too with me mwahaha

BurpDoodle// Super Mario Odyssey! Best Boi Luigi!

Super Mario Odyssey BurpDoodle: Best Boi Luigi!
With a fancy Bowtie! It's this guy's fault my younger brother calls me "Bro!"
It's weird because he sees me as Mario, the more popular one. I don't think I am since I'm more of a meek tortoise when it comes to friendships compared to him. Plus he was the one who got me into video games in the first place when we were kids ;P

Anyway if you're not a fan of Luigi then...oh. Shoo ;)
Still haven't played it but watched it ;D
He's such a sweet adorable dude <3

PS: Steam Gardens' Theme is the grooviest

SuperListenMode: Creating things anyway

SuperListenMode: Creating things anyway

Grateful. But not take encouragement and validation too much to heart.
Especially negative unhelpful feedback.
Feedback can be a mixed bag! I mean I judge myself the most already!
Got to believe in yourself firstmost! <3
Yes...I'm working on it ;)

It really helps to ask for honest feedback from trusted friends who have your best interests at heart and who understands you. ^_^

...something I'm not always great at :')

SuperListenMode: Programmer Appreciation!

SuperListenMode: Programmer Appreciation!

The real Programmer Day is on the 13th September...but this is my comic.
I work with programmers and have a tester brother and have suffered learning programming myself so I'm totally not biased ;P

Just super appreciating all of you for being amazing at what you do! :D <3

They're super intelligent problem solvers.

Meanwhile I'm looking like this:  O.O;;;

"Roger that...N..."
She's so fun to draw and my favourite character while sweet boy 9S is a close second. Emil is the best! All of the characters are great.
This. Fanart. Cannot Continue. 
But I hope to go back and draw her again <3

Love and Kindness in everything you do.

SuperListenMode: Feedback Loop!

SuperListenMode: Feedback Loop!

Hey when teamwork is involved, you have to expect changes along the way! Always make sure we're all on the same page for the project. (: 
Even if it means we start all over again...we get closer to what we need!

Sometimes I expect to start over as I wait for feedback haha
It does get exhausting though and it gets to a point where I really, really need a break before I can see things with fresh eyes again. Especially when you don't know what you're doing anymore.

Ultimately it's not "my" project. But "our" project ;)

Quick BurpDoodle for Celeste: Madeline

Quick #BurpDoodle for Celeste: Madeline
I didn't play it because I'm terrible at games but I did watch it for the story (: 
Really wholesome game in design, characters and music!
