Feeling creative

Feeling creative

Another long time without an update, so I'll post just to get rid of that new year post. So first about the stupid new year resolutions thing the only one I've kept was finishing my kanji book.

Resolutions to make the new year suck less

Resolutions to make the new year suck less

Full title: Resolutions to make the new year suck just a little bit less (dA was evil and cut my ridiculously long title >__< ) Second part of my new year post (you didn't see that one coming, did you? muahaha) So after reflecting about the past year, it's time to make a list of good resolutions evil plans to take over the world: - Study Japanese. I've been busy with that lately and I plan to continue to study every day. I'm almost at the 2/3 point of the Heisig method to learn the kanji  (2042 kanji, the jouyou set plus a few other useful ones).

Annus Horribilis

Ok, it's not that bad but I like that expression :D But this year has been an artistic black hole and I haven't even been on dA much.

So many people, many of them already quite skilled seem to have given up on art. Is the passion gone?

hi,

oekaki.bulbagarden.net/ for example

www.ratemydrawings.com/ is a large site that has it but they call it "JavaDraw" (they customized it a little bit)

Most recent oekaki boards have it, just google for "oekaki" or "oekaki chibipaint". I hope you find one you like, have fun!
