Working

Working

So I finally have a "studio space set up (complete with drafting desk!!!). Productivity's on the uptick (meaning I'm doing some/anything). Uploaded some art. Only the Hamilton art is new --- rest are dug up from my folders. Most of my accomplishments of late are traditional. Alas, I possess neither scanner nor sufficient camera to render these works suitable for upload. I've really been listening to Hamilton too much. In all seriousness, I can't get anything done without my own workspace. Immediate goals now that I am possessed of such a space include opening commissions and taking on some paying work.

So I've uploaded a ton of pictures, as promised. My scanner's still tiny, so some of my best work is still scanning in cropped and/or poor quality, boo. I've put a lot of stuff in my scrapbook too. I had a hard time deciding whether to put it in my regular gallery or not, but I thought that it was looking a little cluttery with that many rough images (Plus I don't pay for premium, so I can't pick what's displaying on my profile. I finished my first ever comic page! Yay me! Actually, it's just the pencil draft, but it feels finished since I went all out with my graphites, since I'm probably going to frame this thing or something. From now on

My scanner is kaput. Never mind that it's too small. Once I get a new one, I'll have a bucketload of recent art to post. Plus, I just got a bunch of art books from the library. Here's hoping I can make good use of them. Anyway, it's taken me a couple of years, but I think i've finally figured that I want to work freelance. As a comic book artist and graphic designer. I also still plan to be a novelist. But it's going to take a lot of self-studying as I do not have the funds for art school of any sort. (Maybe next year.) So right now I'm just trying to shake things out, figure out what it is I need to do to do what I want to.
