As usual it's been a long time since I posted anything... mainly because my evil job sucks up 90 % of my time, energy, and soul. &nbsp;But things have been a little easier lately so I've renewed my efforts to do anything creative. &nbsp;And towards this end I went out and bought myself a shiny new camera! &nbsp;I had an old Samsung GX10 DSLR lying around my room collecting dust, and I wondered why I didn't use it more often... and figured it had something to do with it's inconveniently large size. &nbsp;I've been eyeing those new Sony compact DSLRs lately and finally decided that I absolutely had to have one! &nbsp;I really wanted the NEX7 but that was a little out o

So, as usual I've been very absent on DA lately.... thanks mainly to my horrible work schedule. &nbsp;It's been absolutely terrible the past few months... I've been pushing 80+ hours a WEEK. &nbsp;Bah! &nbsp;It's totally zapped whatever shred of artistic creativity that I might have had left. &nbsp;I haven't even been gaming... everytime I would go to login or pick up a controller I'd end up just putting it back down, since I knew I wouldn't have enough time to actually enjoy the game. &nbsp;Besides who else is online at 9am when I get off work??? No one. &nbsp;Anyway... it finally seems like work MIGHT be going back to a "normal" close to 40 hours a week schedule, so &nbsp;I

I just returned from a vacation across Oregon. &nbsp;Went From Mt. Hood through Portland and across to the Ocean. &nbsp;Lots of awesome waterfalls and sights at the mountain not to mention miles and miles of hiking. &nbsp;Saw both the Japanese garden and Chinese Gardens in Portland. &nbsp;I recommend both although the Japanese garden was much larger and picturesque, the Chinese garden had tours and was a nice quick stop in the middle of the city. &nbsp;Cannon beach was awesome, really great sights, cliffs going right into the ocean, and large old growth forests too. &nbsp;Had a nice place to stay right on the water so it made for a great time. &nbsp;Plus there were a lot of go

Hiya! Thanks again for the watch and kind comment! I really appreciate it! :heart:
Thanks for the llama :)
Oh! I remember you! O.o you did that tree photo XD and i think you did the digital painting...
haha yeah that's me, and you're welcome! thanks for the favs you gave me and for watching!
Thank you so much for the +watch! I appreciate the support.
And thank you for the awesome art you put up, especially the lineart! Several of yours are on my todo list. I love the Power in a Bottle pic you did, looks so good! makes me want to actually take an art class or at least learn how to use photoshop =p
hahaha, well thank you, that's an awesome compliment, and I appreciate it! I have to say though I've been in art school for a year and I haven't had a single class even touch Photoshop. I've self taught myself digital painting over the last 8 or so years. But what art school has given me is much better understanding of anatomy, proportions, composition, light and space.

Even if you can't take an art class, I would highly recommend doing some figure/life drawing in your free time. It's extremely helpful!

Thank you so much again for the comment, it made me smile and that's a nice way to start the day, no? :)
