Its me again.
Miss me? I doubt it.
You still here? Why? I mean REALLY, Why?
Fine, stick around for all I care.
So, um, yeah. You might have noticed I've been... not here. Or well, I've been here answering questions, replies, faving art... but not... making any of my own.
Well, truth is I've been pretty lazy. I'm sure you know, combination of severe depression, artist block, being frustrated with the quality of my art... blame it on what you will. Truth is, I don't think I've done any drawing since that free commission for arslon196
back in May.
But, naturally its always on my mind. Just kinda in the background there making me feel guilty, but not motivating enough to do something about.
I hate guilt. My family is all about "guilt management." But I digress..
So, whats gonna happen now? Well, here's where there might be some good news.
The other day I was hanging out with one of my friends IRL and he was showing off his tablet. It was touch based, and had a neat little keyboard that could clip onto one of the sides. No big whoop.
Then he pulled out a digital pen, and proceeded to jot down some notes. THIS grabbed my attention.
I asked to borrow it for a bit. It had a cool little art program installed, and I was able to do some doodling on the pad. It felt GOOD. It felt nautral. I was elated! What was this device!? Could I get one of my own?!
We had a good long talk and checked some stuff online. I've officially decided to save my money and buy a tablet like his- but more suited for art and graphics. Naturally, it cost is around a thousand bucks- but I had over half of that in my bank account from taking care of my elderly grandfather for several months. (If only I hadn't squandered that money on expensive meals and things I'd never use... the Gunpla was worth every penny though) So I've made an agreement with my Aunt to work for the remaining amount of money, as well as other methods (I'm getting some money from stuff I've been selling on EBay.)
Problem is, Its gonna have to wait. Those of you who have been following me for a while know I visit Canada every year. I'm also going to visit my Mother in Kansas. So I'm going to be "traveling" and "on vacation" until August.
So... yeah thats pretty much it.
I'm not going to be able to upload anything (unless I take pictures, but you guys have never seemed to like my vacation photos...) until August- and then I'll be working on getting that tablet.
But when I DO get that tablet... I'm SO gonna art! I'm gonna ART so much!
So yeah, good news down the road... but not for a while...
When I have the time... When I get back... When I feel motivated...
