Why on earth does this thing hate apostrophes??
Been a while, hmmm?
I suppose one reason would be the death of my laptop. Another would be that I had pretty much stopped drawing.
Well, okay, not really STOPPED, but I mostly just scribbled now and then for the feel of it and not really to further myself. Granted, there were a few small clusters of days (in the YEARS I've been gone) that I actually sat down and did proper studies and such, but I don't think those count. I suck. It is just that plain and simple.
That has changed (the dedication, not the suckiness), though I make no promises of consistent uploads or dazzling images. Yet.
While "not" drawing, I have been writing.
I've always been writing, technically. More recently however, I started taking myself more seriously, and as far as how I liked to constructively spend my free time, writing was typically it. And still is.
I love to draw, but it is a hobby. Writing, though still a hobby, is something I hope to one day accomplish grand (and possibly monetary) things with. I just don't see myself doing that with my art. If anything, I believe the pursuit of it would ruin the joy that drawing brings me.
So, that would probably be the biggest reason I completely disappeared for a rather expansive amount of time....
And also why I am still only kind of... limping along as far as art is concerned.
I built a new computer (with my spectacular brother's help, mind you) and will (hopefully) soon be in possession of Photoshop again.
I will try to pop in more often, and though I am currently scanner-less (again) I may just start taking pictures of anything I do in the traditional sense.
