Been drawing almost daily since I was a toddler, I tried digital for the first time in 2001 but didn't adopt it as a serious and regular medium until coming here and working harder at it in 2006. I have invested thousands of hours and dollars in this hobby just in the past few years alone - please don't steal what I've dedicated everything I have to perfecting :police:

Random Favourites

It was bound to happen, but after lurking on the famous reddit forums for some time I decided what the heck and just made an account under the same name I have here (so don't worry, it ain't an imposter... unless there's another one that's existed pre October 14th :paranoid:) I was first introduced to the site after having some artworks I made featured there and receive a surprising amount of attention, which echoed right through to dA here and earned me some spikes in favourites on some of them which seemingly came out of nowhere. I suppose now if one gets featured again I can clear things up since there always seems to be some people misinterpreting them, or just wondering how they're made, or what was going through the artist's head while they were being created :) But that's not the reason why I joined. I just love to talk and people on the forums here know how opinionated and graphic I can be about some things :blahblah:

There's not much else to report though. Sadly my art-producting here has slowed to a crawl and won't be getting any better anytime soon. I'm still feeling OK and not in any creative slump since I always come up with idea son what to draw next. My problem is just finding time, and since it's spring in this hemisphere I am spending a lot more of my non-working time on my garden - my other primary passion. But since this an art site and not a garden forum I can say that's why I don't invest too much into showing here (plus like any of my works in progress I don't like showing too much until it's just the way I like it ;p) But Halloween is coming up, and I haven't missed one of those yearly submissions yet, so I'll try to muster up something even if just for that :pumpkin:

As for what else I do, well I spend a lot of time watching cartoons, animated movies and playing games. In many ways this is the one area I haven't grown up. But for what it's worth - they have all influenced me in more ways than I let on, from my taste in characters, the themes in my art, and even my sense of humour. If I haven't drawn it then you can bet I have played it or memorized quotes from it!

Same here, I might as well start saving up enough money for that. :la:
The old bosses are making a comeback, that's my main reason for wanting to buy it once the prices go down. :eager:

I wonder how it will look too - there's nothing I love more than cartoon graphics rendered in HD quality (Mario Kart 8 is one of my favourite games because of this, it just looks amazing! A rare example of a game that looks as good as it is fun :la:) I remember really loving the environments and themes of the original Crash games - they were beautiful for their time, so seeing it in HD would be epic I bet :omg:

You take pride in the comments you write and post in the dA forums.  They're detailed and thorough.  As someone who studied a lot of grammar, and has written articles, mind if I throw you a suggestion?

Add two spaces between each sentence, instead of one.  It's an old typewriter tradition.  Makes paragraphs cleaner and easier to read.

Try it out, sometime!

I'll give it a shot, but it'll be hard to break a 10-year habit ;)

My last PC kicked the bucket a few weeks ago, I only just yesterday got a new one, but I haven't been able to re-install all my software and finished what I started yet :(
