Spent an hour or two painting a picture for AAAA. Gimp crashed on save. I don't think I'm meant to "art".

...but I'm working on it, one second per second, just like everyone else. For those of you who are glad to see my account active again, you have TCG , Magno , Jimbo , and Necrovert to thank for my return. For those of you who are angry that I dare sully dA with my continued presence (in which case why are you reading this?) feel free to blame the above. It turns out that attempting to dissociate all your baser urges into a secondary entity and trying to pretend they are separate from you and these feeling are not in fact your emotions and desires is less effective that one might have supposed, and does not actually help. Who would have guessed? Not me. In any event I'll try not to make that mistake again (although I probably will make similar mistakes, because I'm me, and that's what I do. Moving forward I am trimming the fat off my schedule, as time management is difficult for me, and I don't need to make it any more difficult than it already is. This will mean more time spent

OK, I'm in my new place and my computer is just now set up... for a very minimal value of "set up"!

I just realized we both have the tagline "Once more with feeling." XD I think that phrase plus "Just ship it" are some of my (semi irony) favorite things artists are told. The greatest sin though, is hearing "Can't you do it for free? Isn't it fun for you so why do I have to pay you?"

It is fun for me... and yet, pay you must. :p I feel like "once more with feeling" is about where I am in life... statistically, I'll be lucky to get another 40 years... might as well do something with them. :nod: "Just ship it" is for working artists... I hear "what do you mean, you haven't started yet?" more often, as a 'hobbyist'. :no:

Hey, hobbies are what drives people the most, so to every hobby artist out there (and I'm a hobby comic artist), I think it's okay to set your own pace. Life is worth enjoying and living, and not always grinding away at something.


I do have a rule for getting started on something: Spend at least 30 min a day on it. If after 30 min nothing came out of it, that's fine. Go have fun, but, just keep at that routine. I was never good with routine, my soul despised routine. But then I followed a routine my partner has for his hobby, and, it's hard some days, but it becomes a habit and an enjoyment. Funny how humans are so habit driven.


And I do hope you get another 40 years! Life is better with you around. :)

I like that idea! 30 minutes it totally doable. :nod: I hope to be around for many more years... I am kinda fun! ;p

I just posted some more Nlian wildlife!
