That's awesome. It's so cool to see how much progress you've achieved by sticking with it and reinventing yourself!!!
Kind of. It's kind of been ages since I've done the kind of drawing and bold lines that I do up here. I went really abstract when I was in grad school which meant a lot of physical painting and wild shapes. I might post photos of those, some pieces I gave away and will never see again
. I did a 'zine show a couple times, but I definitely miss the goals I set doing comic art. Tbh I've struggled over the years with finding a set up I like. Ages ago, I drew my physical lines, scanned them, used paint shop pro to do the initial layer of colors, and Corel Painter to fine-tune stuff (as well as the straight digital art). Now, I pay for artrage, but I think the issue is I hate it. I hate how the color palette is and I hate how the canvas is auto-sized, and even if you don't auto-size it, the grain is strange. And I've been wondering why I pay for an app that I actually really hate so much and wondering where that leaves me! I'm about to make a big, big move over to the UK so I'm really excited I might get a chance to focus on the art again (I do freelance contract translation for my "real" job
, and figure out what's been keeping me from doing what I used to love. It's actually a really huge deal that you left that comment! Thank you!
