I'm back, though I never "officially" left. It has been a week of finals, with plenty of work building up to the climax that would eventually be excellent grades in my classes.I hope.
Weeeeell shiet. It's about this time yearly that a sense of uselessness and consequent boredom start to slowly sink in, due to my having nothing to do during this period of time. A humongous list of "to-do" circulating my brain, nowhere to put it.
But oh! Great news! I didn't tell anyone on-site this, but I took a Drawing I class this semester and have a fair collection of fine art realism pieces I'm just itching to show everyone. I submitted my best piece to the school art gallery in downtown Colorado Springs (anyone here from Colorado....? Nope.) and will be attending an artists' reception in a few hours. I feel positively lovely and full of rainbow butterflies. I will post the photograph online soon ('cause that mutherhubbard 18x24 won't fit in the scanner, I'm telling ya).
Additionally, my personal works are full to bursting out of my sketchbook, so I'll need you all to take a look at those too. But in due time. A few months ago I purchased a Turcom digital tablet and Manga Studio 5, looking to create digital masterpieces.
However, Manga Studio has been on the fritz since I opened it and I'll probably just re-install it after Windows 10 comes out for free, hopefully late July. I've also started using references in my art to get more of a realistic effect, and it is surprisingly fun. I used to be less patient about these things but I've done my share of growing in this past year.
It's so good to be here.
God bless the Hell out of ya.
