Bleh, I've been gone for so long. What am I supposed to put on here? :U
Woo! Greetings. Whoever's been watching me or just stumbled upon here. Wow, it's been quite a while since I've really posted anything... I guess it'd be fantastic if you took the time to read. Or carry on if you don't care, 'cause I don't care if you don't care.
I'm alive and all, typical response. Nothin' tragic's really happened. I have just been quite busy at my University. At this time, 2 more weeks until Finals, and the last load of homework to go. Computer Science as my major currently, rather than something Arts or Design-related... Tough, but striving to survive and keep going forward in life, 'cause that's important. (I wonder if there might be an opportunity to make my major more design-based than logic/coding. I've been doing well so far anyway, but art's been a huge part of my life)
On the artsy
hobbyist side, still drawing a whole lot. I try
to actually practice a lot of human/anthro
stuff, or random, which I don't really end up posting or properly making a final version. I'm quite hesitant on posting on a lot of what I do though. Honestly, I get really unsure of posting new stuff here too often, or I've got so much "incomplete" stuff. A lot are also base-like or "nekkid" but "featureless" drawings for practice or for fun, which I only really share with close friends and get feedback sometimes. Seems like it would kinda clash with what I have going on in my gallery. I don't even know what I'm going for in this gallery though. I kinda just post whenever I feel like it, but I still restrict myself, even though it's my gallery!
(I'll have to think about it some time on what kind of stuff I should post more of...)
Style-wise, I've largely moved on from anything "MLP: FiM"-related artworks, returned to the roots of Nintendo artwork, and also trying to do more human/anthro stuff. I've also updated my Featured page in my Gallery, so it's actually stuff I want Featured.
I suppose to give an idea of expected things in my gallery.
Kinda wish I knew someone who was good at critiquing, but not too extremely nitpicky or critical, in the art that I sketch of, such as the "featureless" anatomy/physique stuff. I do a lot of "guesswork" where what I sketch is what I draw...Sample:
old, but still working reference of my fursona. "J-Dawg
Character Sheet" sketch vs. final
Inspired by Tom Fischbach/Twokind's Flora Character Sheet (which is linked within the final version post)
I also had a question about Social Media
(Yeah, I put "O" instead of "I" in my Status...). I've been pretty skeptical when it comes to sites like Tumblr, Facebook, etc. with the Memes and Triggeredness happening all around. I really don't mind memes though, but I guess certain users or stuff kinda scare me away. But I think I need to start another place to share stuff to as well, like most other people do. "No, don't use Twitter, nothing happens there." "Not Facebook, strange interface" "Tumblr is full of triggered people" That's just the internet for us, I suppose. :v "So, all of time and space. Everything that ever hapened or ever will. Where do you wanna start?"
Also, I'm probably going to have to try to be more active some day, maybe during Summer Break if I don't become busy with a possible job or have to take summer classes to advance. I really do need a break though.
Also it's kinda... awkward, being gone for so long. I don't really know what to say, or I talk too much (I've said a lot already on here, ha). But I definitely still would want to try talking to others and posting art on here rather than "abandoning" it like some other people might. If I make a Social Media, all I might do is probably just link the image to the Social Media with those lovely Share/Tweet buttons I've never pushed on here...
I have a Nintendo Switch too, and I've taken so many screenshots (So much BotW and Inkings in MK8D, finally surviving in water like they should have always, SplatoonTeamWaterSlide!), and I wanted to share a select amount, from the hundreds I've taken. And small art related to it too possibly. I could probably use an outside source for littler art (I think that's a word?). I guess I could post smaller art or such at an outside source, instead of Scraps (since that now appears on the front page of my profile too). Or maybe I could still just share. Again, so indecisive... Suggestions might be nice. I dunno...
Anyway, it's like, 2AM when I was typing this. Enough of my rambling. I hope you had a good time reading. And it's nice to see you, whoever's looked at this wall of text. Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions, and I hope you have a lovely rest of the day~ ♪
