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:

I've been wondering if I should change my username, what do you guys think?

Today really caught me off guard. Just as I was starting to think I was being forgotten about (my fault - haven't been very active) I find out that my "Diamond Ring" artwork ended up being awarded a Daily Deviation :trophy: Thanks for all the comments and favourites to both new and old watchers and random passer-byers!

As I mentioned, I haven't been active in the art-making department lately, so the DD was a welcome breath of new life into my gallery while I'm sitting here wondering what should I draw next and more importantly - when can I find the time. It's been a combination of me having to work 6-8 day weeks since late last year and being too physically and mentally exhausted on what time off I get in between to bother doing much more on the computer than browsing forums and looking at pictures of cool stuff I like, and also the fact that last September my previous machine - a laptop, decided to just quit on me to the point where I was stuck without a machine to use for weeks until I could find a replacement (an ACTUAL computer this time) and get all that up and running, and it takes me forever to adapt to change so I've only just now gotten into drawing anything at all again after going months without it - the longest I've ever not-drawn anything since, well - ever.

Also it's been hot here (I know that sounds off to a lot of readers at this time of the year, but remember it's summer down on this half of the world) Like really, really, ridiculously, record-breaking hot. My bare back sticking to my new office chair hot. Like a fussy plant that only blooms in ideal growing conditions - I too just can't "perform" when it's a struggle to even breathe in my own living room. So it's just been a really sucky September-to-now string of months where I've been too busy, too tired and too freaki'n hot to do anything, all the while spending a good portion of it not even having something I can create any new material with and it's taken until pretty much just now before I can feel comfortable creating again, unfortunately after being forced to miss out on several ideas I wanted to execute that were really only valid for certain times of the year. I've spent almost eleven years trying to make sure this "life" thing never interfered with my presence here but after over a decade of fighting it I guess I had to lose one eventually. Lucky there's always more rounds and once I get some commission work out of the way and wait for another damn Venusian summer to pass I might be a little more in the mood to get out some of those ideas I was forced away from before. Hell I only need to draw more than three things and this would have already been a more productive year than 2016 was. That's me - always setting the bar high ;)

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!

I can't believe I would ever go a full year without having anything new to upload. Where did the past 12 months go (don't answer that - they were wasted in the pursuit of money I barely even got to enjoy) So I feel relieved to finally dust off my gallery and add something new. I wanted to step back into my oceanic theme and saturated colours which are always enjoyable to work with, and with purple being my favourite colour - well, I just don't use it nearly enough! Don't really know exactly what kind of "point" I was making here, I just wanted something that had a relaxing ambiance and a balanced composition showing some unlikely similarities from two not always very accessible realms, sea and space.
