I did this back when it was 'in' and never posted it.

Thought I may as well post it and explain that I am not actually dead, but that work is kicking my ass and money is scarce which makes for a shitty art environment.

This job has made me realise just how people can wake up one day, be 40 years old, have health problems and wonder what they've done with their lives.

This may be a bad year for art. :-v

How come some things are censored? :o

It was done in jest at the time, I had just had a large amount of deviations removed when I did this and thought it was suited at the time to censor all things relating to the removed deviations. :shrug:

It's never a bad year for art! Just set aside time in advance and take small bites. How old are you, anyway? Surely not 40 ...

I remember then the mods did that. I think it threw all of your active watchers for a loop. I miss your parody 3D models.

Oh well, your stuff is still nice. I never knew you had problems with the anime style, though I must say it pushed you in a very successful direction.

I'm trying my hardest to get away from the style right now and try something fresh. My style seems to be getting stale.

I just always thought that I never really got it right, I do appreciate how it kept me drawing though. :D

It's always good to try something new, at the very least you tend to come back with some new skills. 8-)

Okay, so what's with all the text censoring? Images I can understand as they relate to the whole "copyrighted work, remove it now" thing right? But actually naming characters. How is that gonna harm you?

Fair enough.

I hope work doesn't take its toll on your art!

I think it is, even if it's just wearing me out to the point I don't have the energy to do it as much anymore. :(
DracoAsh's avatar
I understand that.

I like to think anything censored in any text is a swear word. You are such a naughty boy. :3

I've bee wondering, why don't you make more 3D models from scratch? The Goldilocks model was amazing.

I just started making a model of Girlbot from The Intrepid Girlbot just for fun, so I might get back into it when I've got time. :)
