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:

Ever had that really cool concept that you just couldn't do because you lacked the necessary tools to do it. Well that feeling's becoming more and more frequent to me and and having lost something I had my laptop rendering for the past two days just set me off. As if it wasn't bad enough that it was meant to be an Easter themed artwork that would have already been a few days late, now I feel like I'm better off scrapping it altogether, or just putting it aside for next year when I'm sure I'm not going to care about it anymore anyway :dummy:

There's a good reason why I don't submit new art nearly as often as I used to, or say yes to many commission offers anymore. Not much else in my life has changed other than me feeling increasingly bored and tired with trying to do it. And it's not because of a lack of ideas, since I come up with them daily. It's because my workload is being carried by the technological equivalent of a mule with a busted leg. This "trying to make huge epic digital art of the future using yesterday's outdated hardware" thing has worn my motivation down and killed any joy it used to have for me when my expectations were small enough for my lack of top-tier tools to really be an issue. Creating anything now always feels like such a chore, usually these days I only muster up enough obligation to continue with my annual series for certain days of the year so I don't have any gaps in my track record but in between those I find myself spending most of my time doing nothing because it's a lot less rage-inducing than sitting through a hundred program crashes just to get one measly artwork out of month's worth of suffering for it. I had ideas for new "series" I wanted to start out and maybe even a new calendar too to hopefully breath some fresh interest into the medium, ideas I know would have done well here and probably helped bring me back to the spotlight which I feel I've not been able to get back to in a long while. But I then realize I'd just be trying to tunnel out of prison with a disposable plastic spoon :crazy:

Think next year I might have to consider some much needed upgrades if I'm going to have any hope of saving my passion for this stuff at all, but I can't afford that shit now so the renaissance of priteeboy will have to be postponed as I look forward to another year where I do as little as possible for the sake of my own sanity, since until I can get my hands on something more up to speed with my own growth and ideas then I can't say I'm really enjoying this much and have even crossed that line where I enjoy coming here to look at other people's art more than contributing my own, it's just a much easier way to get me dA fix :fella:

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!

That 90's Look by priteeboy
That 90's Look
What started out as a discussion I was having on the dA forums about what celebrities/characters we all looked like I decided to take a fresh pic now that my hair's grown back a bit since the other one earlier this year (I also apologize for the lack of any actual art, I'm too busy with other shit at the moment. Got the ideas - not the time) since it might come in handy for such topics which seem to come up a lot. It's also so I can get some opinions on whether I should change my hair to something like this more permanently. Though if anything it would be a change back since I had it in my pre-dA days for a number of years before. But it's still always had it's appeal and I still tend to find guys with it very hot :lol: Though since this isn't the 90's anymore - it's rarely ever seen. Perhaps I could bring it back, but sometimes it's cool to have something different to what everyone else does =p

It wasn't originally meant to be a new submission but I liked the end result just barely enough to pass, and gives me at least something to upload here to carry me over to my next art submission, and an excuse to wear a leather jacket even though it's not cold :dummy:

Priteeboy's Garden by priteeboy
Priteeboy's Garden
I was inspired to put these photo's I've taken of my own plants and compile them together by a forum thread (a few actually) where people ask questions like what's your favourite flowers or what plants do any deviants around here grow (or at least try to ;p) Rather than explaining mine all the time, I figured this could be useful to show off the next time a thread like that comes up =p

These are all taken from my own backyard, the garden as a whole isn't quite photogenic yet, having only been around for a few years - needs some more time and work to go and you can't rush nature. Fortunately by this point most plants as individuals have reached a stage where they have finally started to show off the reasons why I chose them in the first place. Inspired by the beauty of the tropics (and many trips to Queensland)  I decided to theme my garden plan around that. Lucky my climate is warm enough for many popular tropical plant varieties to grow, but some others I'd like to have are off-limits and really only can be grown in the "true" tropics closer to the equator, but I got enough here to get the point across :D
