Knots! by YukoISBadMedicine
So today I bring you something other than drawings for a few reasons.
1. It is always good to try and learn new things/work on different skills.
2. My tablet and laptop are being a pain, so pictures may take awhile.

Knots is another form of art and can be used for many different things. Jewelry, decorations, etc...

Here we have two different Chinese knots. The good luck knot and the butterfly knot. As you can see, I am more of a beginner, but I am proud of how these two knots came out. Different knots have different meanings and purpose.

I used Chinese Knotting and Fun with Chinese Knotting by Lydia Chen. I highly recommend these two books if you are interested in learning how to tie knots (or in this case, Chinese knots in particular).The book has step by step picture instructions (great for beginners to follow along as knots can be complex and confusing to tie at times), but also talks a little about each knot and the history of knotting as well as some tips in general. The only problem I had with that book, is that it doesn't telling you how much cord you need. Not a big deal though. Just get long cords and cut them in half and once you get the hang of each knot, you can estimate how much cord you need. I say longer the better as you can always cut it. Or once you get better at it and have patience, you can always take them apart instead of sealing the ends or securing it in place and measure how much cord was used. 

I have another book call 75 Chinese, Celtic and Ornamental Knots. I don't like that book as much as it doesn't have enough step by step pictures and can get confusing nor does it give you many suggestions for projects or a follow through of what to do when done really if you are trying to make jewelry (just talks about three different ways to seal it and that is about it). If you know about tying knots/have more experience and need a reference book, you might enjoy it more. For a beginner that wants to learn how to tie Celtic and other knots (macrame, fishing, camping, etc...), you may want to look online for other books or tutorials.

Yuko's 2014 Art Summary by YukoISBadMedicine
Yuko's 2014 Art Summary
Warning-Huge file.

First of all, I don't know why, but I feel like I should apologize for not being quite as active for the past year or so. I have been trying, but suffering from depression, anxiety, etc...makes it really hard for both motivation and creativity. It seems like the past two years that things gotten worse in my life (not sure if people really want to hear about it anyways, so I am not going to go into that on here. I am just hoping that this is the year that things turn around for once. I really hope I can finally move). Also I just gotten a new battery for my laptop and had to wait for that, etc....

Anyways, I hadn't done the summary for last year yet:
-January: Legend of Korra/Tahno fan art inspired by some music I was listening to. Details about it in the link to the pic.
<da:thumb id="430207931">
-February-Couldn't find any art files for that month, so I either was working on another project or took a break. I don't really member.

-March: An I.D. card made for the Trauma Center/Trauma Team fandom. Info and blank template for the card in the link
<da:thumb id="438127423">

Was a chibi commission for :iconhanziechu:  and her OC Ryu.
<da:thumb id="448075442">

-May: One of the fan art I did for Tahno week last year.
<da:thumb id="452573640">
-June: Couldn't fine any art I made for June (probably due to going vacation and all that around June/July as well as working on cosplays and other stuff)

-July: I didn't post it on here, but this was a request someone made on tumblr with their OC Koko sparring with Tahno (since the request was for someone on tumblr, I wasn't sure if I should post it here or not, so I didn't).

-August: Still not finished yet (I need to go back to coloring it), but it was a picture of my OC
Máquè. I was practicing posing/anatomy.

<da:thumb id="475712631">

-September: Also not finished (though I had fixed up the hands and started coloring it). This originally started out with a color palatte and pose challenge on tumblr that ended up being a full pic. The challenge was supposed to be picking a random number for both the pose to use and color palate. I wasn't even sure what to title it, so I just named it after a song I was listening to at the time. Anyways, that is my OC Janae and info about the challenge and all that in the link.

<da:thumb id="480159850">
-October: Another picture I didn't post on here as it was meant to be an ID for tumblr. Janae again. I just wanted to try face angles and dynamics like wind blowing to challenge drawing clothing, etc....but didn't turn out like I planned.

-Noveber: Sketch I have yet to post on here. It is my Second Gen Trauma Center OCs (Code Blue). The twins Vincent and Vanessa, Evelyn and Noah are here. The original pic wasn't chibi style, but decided I wanted to make them chibi's mid-way though. The title for it is Freakin' Friends, after a song from Daria because it seemed so fitting for them. I took a break to do some Secret Santa's and hadn't gotten back to it (along with a butch of other stuff),


-December: One of Secret Santa pics I did for Trauma Center fandom (Victor Niguel from Second Opinion/Under the Knife 1 and 2). I am actually happy how that one turned out.

Blank template for the 2014 Art Summary was created by :iconDustBunny-Thumper: and can be found here-
<da:thumb id="500086771">

I didn't realize how much stuff I never finished and want to keep trying to work on things, even if it takes me longer to do so. I want to keep trying to push through depression, anxiety, etc....if only just for myself recovery and breaking out the habit of not completing things.

Edit-Sorry, links aren't working. DA is kind of being a pain.
