While going through your dA inbox, have you ever come across a deviation, or a pile of deviations, that looks less than impressive, think "huh, why am I watching this person?" ... only to find out that this is the same artist who made a bunch of your favorite pictures a while ago?
In other words, that artist's new works don't seem as good as their old ones. Not a good thing to happen.
Then I realized. LOOOOOOL at least they're still posting stuff. Me? When was the last time I posted something -- finished something postable? I can't even remember!
So I've been itchin' to make something nice and detailed and shiny, I really have been. Unfortunately, I am in the process of recovering from a nasty hand injury (on both hands! Not that it matters since I'm not ambidextrous). I can type slowly, but I can't put much pressure on my right index and middle fingers, which makes it hard to hold the stylus, let alone make hard pressure strokes.
The recovery shouldn't take long, though. Once my hands are back to full functionality, I will start working on a new painting that I believe will be post-worthy. I already know what it's going to be of! It's for a special person I've recently come to know IRL. No, make that two new paintings for two special people.
