Trying to be! My WIP is the hardest thing I've ever done, and it has been a serious struggle.
Let me guess: life is making it hard to find the time to get it done. If so, I know the feeling.
I'm not on here very often, and I don't keep up with everything that happens on DevArt. Other than posting artwork, it is only an occasional indulgence, because when it becomes more than occasional, I end up working a lot less on artwork.
So you can imagine my surprise when I found out that HandofManos discontinued his account. HandofManos has been a long time member since before I joined, and I and many other DevArt members have enjoyed his vector artwork for a very long time, and is one of the reasons I've been trying to get back into Illustrator/Photoshop in the first place.
As he explains in his last Journal entry
He was suffering from the number one bane of any artist: burnout and lack of time. Not liking how this site was the final straw, I guess.
I still wish that I had known ahead of time, so I could leave one last comment. Or that he could have left his work up, so that we could continue to enjoy it. His artwork still shows up in my favorites, but who knows if he instructed the site to leave it up (which I hope), or if it's just a temporary reprieve.
Unfortunately, my laptop isn't very heavy in the memory department, so I'm going to have to leave his suggestion to download and save his art to someone who does.
I hate the changes they made to Adobe. You need to log on, as opposed to just opening the program. But the account is shared with my dad, in his name. I failed to log in earlier, since I didn't want to do so during dinner. And now he won't send me a code this time, so I can't work on my Excelsior Blended Wing design tonight. And I have a lot of work to do on her, before the next WIP is even close to ready.
