1-04. circular


About the illustration
It’s not an object, but well, it’s a noun! This time, the illustration is fairly simple. It was also supposed to be done fairly quickly but painting the moon was hell not easy.

I chose to illustrate the moon because ‘circular’ reminded me of the earth and its rotation on its axis and around the sun. That then made me think of the moon. The moon was picked over Earth because I remembered some Science teachers in my primary school arguing whether the Earth was completely round (circular) or not. Haha. Oh, and I attempted painting the Earth before. It looked like it was full of nuclear waste, ready to explode :/

Painting the moon took me a much longer time than the rest of the illustrations D; It initially looked like a gigantic round cheese, but after much effort, I think it looks passable. Sort of. Hurhur.

Digital painting. Brush and blur tools in Adobe Photoshop CS. 

Hit counter.

Page 153, entry 9: 
circular –
adj. 1 a having the form of a circle. b moving or taking place along a circle (circular tour). 2 Logic (of reasoning) depending on a vicious circle. 3 (of a letter or advertisement etc.) for distribution to a large number of people. n. a circular letter, leaflet, etc. [based on Latin circulus ‘circle’]. circularity n. circularly adv.

Personal opinion (about the entry)
… it seems easy, but the more I think about it, the entry is actually pretty complicated… that is, if I try to think beyond simple. I think I should focus on an object next since I already have too many characters.

    yea the earth is not round, it is flat!

    …or at least it is flattened at the north and south poles la. because of magnetic fields being stronger at the tips and every year the earth grows flatter because of the inward pressure. THE APOCALYPSE IS NEAR *nods*

    (i hope you know i’m crapping because there are no other people’s comments to read booo)
