The title says it all. I should actually be in bed because i have to work mega early in the morning, but i can't seem to pull myself away from drunkduck. I assume for two reasons..

1: i am waiting, ever so impatiently, for someone to look at my ‘looking for a writer’ post

2: this site is awesome

-shrugs-

anyway, mostly i am putting up this one to see if anyone else is online right now. Chat it up a little, meet some new people, maybe develop a fan base for a comic that hasn't even started up yet, hahaha

I'm on, I'm always on. It's like I have no life. >_>

So you're feeling a bit like your avatar, right?

it's 1:15 am for me here right now.

but yeah I know that feeling. I'm on here mainly because I just got back from being at my bro's and I'm just happy to be in my own place at last.
I'm on hitatus while I redo one of my webcomics. Be sure to check it out when I'n done! :)

I don't think i have gone a day without coming back to DD since i found it a couple weeks ago. I love this place. I only recently just started messin' about in the forums though. And made my first comment today… I never know what to say.

I've been meaning to do some fanart, but i can't really find the right comic to do something for because of my style of drawing. I'm actually in the process of looking for something right now.

As for the ‘no life’ aspect; my entire life is work and computer. Ocassionally i will go out for coffee with some friends.
-sighs-
I'm just waiting for september when i can go back to school and finally do something other than, well.. nothing.
-smirks-

Wingnut: just as a quick side note, i'd though i would mention i'm a big fan of your comic.

It's the holidays for me so I'm up late drawing~ Yay! <3

It's pretty much the only time of the day/night that I can do some drawing.

Yeah, late night is the only time I really get any ‘drawing’ done too. Mostly because it's the only time my brain actually co-operates with the rest of my body. And during the day, the house is full of chaos. Night brings in the quiet.

yeah. the same goes for me.

I'm actually wondering if I should work on something or just bask in the after-hoilday glow…

Tablets are cool, but they take a good long time to get used to.

I've had mine for nearly a year, and this is the first picture that I've been able to do entirely tablet work on it.

Glad you like it Aurora Moon, I had fun drawing it. :D

I didn't think to ask for one because they are so darn expensive and when i did my xmas list, i had been in the process of moving out, so it was all stuff for the new apartment.
I did, however, get a lightbox, which is totally my favourite new toy. I love it so!
-cheesy grin-
-snuggles lightbox-

and my bday was in november, so that's already gone.

Oh well, i'm not nearly good enough to use a tablet yet anyway. My ‘art’ is still very very very juvenile and simple.

Though, if i have a step by step, or enough time to really give it my all, i can do a really good job, in my opinion anyway.

My problem is i lack patience.

I hear ya. But, you know, we do get better with time.

I just re-discovered my old elfwood gallery the other day, some of those pictures were downright PAINFUL.

It's nice to know I've improved. :D

actually, there are some pretty decent affordable tablets if you know where to look. ;)

I got mine as an gift from my parents before I moved out and it was at an affordable price for them…and I've taken good care of it, so it's served me well for such a long time. :)

Yup! I had me an Aiptek 18000 for a long time, you can get those for just over $100.

Just recently upgraded to a Wacom I3.

I'm sure i'll get one oneday. I'm good at making unnecessary purchases.
They sound like fun to work with, and it would make inking on the computer so much easier!
-laughs-

Yeah, i'm starting an art class in January. I really do want to get better. Even if it is just a hobby. I enjoy it, so why not improve, right?
I'm psyched for it though. I can't wait. It's a bit pricey, but if it will help, i'm okay with that.

lol I hear you on that. when I was in my teenager years I could draw super-realistic animals and creatures really GOOD.. but when it came to people realistic-style the best I could do was just do faces.. the bodies would be kinda be all weird. like I'd have this giant realistic head on an body that couldn't possibly support the head. it was sorta like an Caricature, but not really…

((Edit: I actually conidsered only doing furry art because of this reason… you know those humaniod furry creatures and stuff. but then I didn't want to get grouped in with the Sonic superfans and stuff like that. snice the only people around my area that did furry art was BIG into sonic and would expect anybody who was even interested in furry art to know everything and anything about sonic. and well.. I didn't even own the game. funny how life turns out)).

and it was the same way when it came to my Cartoons/Manga characters… big head, awkward body. when I look back on that I just cringe. but then I just start laughing at myself, happy that I've improved a lot.

As I self taught bottom-feeder, I can tell you now that art classes, ANY art classes, are the shit.

Take as many as you can.

And yeah, the improvement is often so hard to spot, it's just a ton of little things that you never notice until you stumble across a picture that you did a few months ago.

In highschool, we had to copy a picture and i did this lion i was super proud of, it was pretty much identical. If given the time, and the motivation, I'm actually half decent. But without the motivation I don't find myself really trying..
That's why the art class is gonna work. The motivation: expensive classes!
