Trying any new hobbies?

:iconstretch1one:

Just curious if you guys/girls are trying anything new, and what you do/dont like about it, or maybe the parts you find the most challenging, and overall just how it's going for you.

I'm learning how to play the ocarina right now, it's not too hard if I'm being honest, the hardest part is just memorizing songs so I don't have to look at tabs. That ocarina iPhone app sucked me and I wanted to play a real one. I memorized song of storms first :3

In January, I started judo.
It's really fun! But you get a lot of scratches and bruises.

I just got into creating techno and dubstep music. Just finished my first song recently and will be posting it soon. I'm waiting for my wife to finish drawing my pony to use as the logo for my music. I love a lot of the music coming out of the brony community so I wanted to add a bit of my own to it :)

Archery at the moment. A friend of mine talked me into going along every week.
I like it. =D The only thing I dislike about it is that I missed it a bunch of times because I don't always have time to go.

Ocarina is fun! :la: I've got a couple of ocarinas too. But I keep learning songs and then forgetting them again..

Yeah, I tried learning for a while too, but I'm not a fan of learning anything outside a natural process of discovery I suppose. When I learn something new, I like to jump right into it and do it, and progress at my own speed from there

I love swimming and when I start training it I can be rally good at it :D

But with guitar lessons did we have way to much force in it.

With drawing do I know that Im not good at it but I keep trying cause you slowly notice some improvement (:

I'm trying my hand at photomanipulation for a project. Overall, I don't like it much. I prefer pixel art, much less cut/paste involved ^^;

It definitely has more boundaries in the way of not realism but a least readability in a sense, where the viewer can at least accept that the composition your showing them fits together. Which at times can be harder to achieve then creating art from scratch.

It's definitely a more interesting style, but it's really hard to make it work properly. Maybe I need more practice, but I think I'd rather stick with my older methods.

Just like a drawing, sometimes it helps to look at it from another point of view.. Though I don't imagine looking at your writing from a mirror would do you much good you could try reading sections out of order so the story itself isn't your main focus so much as the actual words themselves. That and it never hurts to come back and look at it from a break or even printing it out. Good luck :)
