Hello there! My name's Calum.
I'm a Fine Art student from Scotland - it rains all the time, but I like it!
Things I love include: art (of all kinds), books, nice shoes, food, wine and exciting conversations.
When on this site, you'll usually find me in the Word Games or Avatar Talk Forums. I really enjoy making avatars and inventing little backstories for them - if you have any cool ideas, let me know.
If you want to know anything else (or just feel like talking), feel free to comment me!

I'd like to thank the following people for very kindly donating to me:

Collizio - 30k, Enchanted Meadows, Accessorized Mauling
WG secret santa - Action Hero!

One time, I was a featured avatar. Check it out!

Say hello

Thanks, I hope so! And that's a great tip! I tend to have subtle imagery, so it can be difficult to convey an idea. If you ever get around to creating that stop-motion, you've got to show it to me! mrgreen
Haha, you and your flatmates are all unorganized? Well, it sounds like you guys have a buttload of fun all the time even if essential things don't get completed~ smile
Yes, convenience it wonderful, though I will be living on the seventh floor of the building, so that'll be a challenge. I got to pick one of two roommates due to complicated situations, but hopefully they'll be nice.
That's a relief, and once again, good luck getting a new tutor and wading through that stack of books on your desk!
It must be bothersome to have limited access to the internet. Though nowadays, people get so stuck to their computer screens that it's sometimes hard to imagine going for extended periods of time without them, haha!
And I didn't go the the WG event because I was too lazy and too chicken. lol

That sounds like it was quite fun, hijinks and tea. It's so easy to get distracted if you're with other people!
Ah, well I'm relieved to hear that other art schools put their first years through the wringer, haha.
Yup, I have a feeling that upcoming projects will be much more tolerable and fun~ And a theme for my work? I really haven't even considered such an overarching concept yet. But I think I'll probably head towards subject matters like the occult, and maybe unexpected objects coming to life. I need to learn how to create stories and narratives if I'm going to learn more about animation.
Oh, tapas! Sounds like a real treat! How much longer do you think it'll take to finish decorating your flat?
And yeah, I'm going back to the dorms next semester. At my school, now both freshman and sophomores are required to live on campus. Luckily, I don't have to stay where the freshman live, because those dorms are really terrible.
Wow, your dissertation tutor took voluntary severance! How unlucky! How do you think you'll fare on your own? Then again, you seem to know what you want to write about, so it'll be fun and probably go off without a hitch. biggrin

And thanks, haha! mrgreen

Hey Calum, are you doing a Phantom of the Opera inspired avi? Because I really admire it.

Wow, you had to work all through spring break too? Man, students just can't enjoy their breaks, can they?
Glad that you were happy with the work you produced!!!
Yeah, I had to do a ton of different projects. The freshman year at my school is somewhat annoying because you don't really get to choose your courses. Three strenuous studio courses plus two academic courses each semester killed everyone, haha. The only projects that we were able to focus on for a longer amount of time would really only be the finals, and even then we were only give maybe an extra week.
Wow, Barcelona! That must have been fantastic. And now you've moved to a new flat? You've been quite busy so far!
Ohh, dissertation. Good luck! Do you have a general idea of where you'll be heading with that?

Thanks! Yeah, that is all using your own base! Didn't change it at all. You have a couple of good body mods, though it was hard. The secret to cross dressing male to female on gaia avatars is to hide the arms and legs. You have la dragonne, the legs I used in the avis to modify the legs, and you have quite a few arm mods. Shoulders can be hidden by the ruffs. You have a lot of clown things in your invo~ I also have a lot of clown stuff (My favorite thing to do for a while was to dress up as creepy clowns.)

My current avi is also cross dressed from a male base. biggrin It's a lot of fun, you get to choose whether to dress 'im as a girl or boy for the day, and it's more of a challenge. Happy dressing!

I have got to say, I've always liked your style.

v Haha, those are awesome! The second one is totally like something I'd wear if I had a female avi. Thanks for the tip, I'll have to experiment with that some more.

Glad you liked! hahaha. Well, if you feel like being female--- all of those are on your male base, so feel free to play around and use them!

Well, congrats on making it through the stressful semester. Hopefully your hard work paid off!
Art school's unexpectedly tough at times, time management's so important too.
And nah, I don't have any exciting plans for the summer. Just relax a bunch and draw on occasion, not much else. lol
What about you? Enjoying the summer?
izuna_13_13 Report | 06/29/2014 1:26 am
Jeez, comments are not working with me recently, haha.
Anyways, I hope that you had a nice semester and that you're well!!
I've been fine and got through my first year luckily!
izuna_13_13 Report | 06/29/2014 1:23 am
Well poop! I accidentally put my comment to you on Collizio's profile, haha!
But yeah, hello there!
How was your last semester?
Hey there, long time no see!
Oh, I understand! I was also kept super busy with school. Haha.
Things have been fine, I'm still enjoying art school. Thanks~
I hope that you've been well! How's life been treating ya?

          lol, never. I give thrice what you've given me. But, I usually don't expect it back. And I think the first one will do just fine, when I can afford it. 3nodding Welcome back though.
