Permets-tu? by Sanwall Permets-tu? by Sanwall

However, this skeptic had one fanaticism. This fanaticism was neither a dogma, nor an idea, nor an art, nor a science; it was a man: Enjolras.

a charming young man who was capable of being terrible 

my love for the revolutionaries in Les Mis came from nowhere about three years too late, but anyway.
I'm very proud of this piece, and I uploaded a version without the border on my tumblr:…
It feels like I'm finally getting the hang of Krita, a free drawing software. I haven't been very active on dA lately; if you want to see more of my art I suggest you visit my aforementioned tumblr blog.

Ooooh I LOVE the composition here. I know nothing about Les Mis but this piece is gorgeous. You're really growing as an artist :heart: -envy-

Daaang, Tumblr's robbing DA of another artist. Refuse to use the site myself because it just pisses me off every time I've given it a chance; I've really tried, it just is so not an 'art site' to me >.<  Plus the Tumblr mobs can be kinda stupid and/or mean..

Even if I suck at posting someone's still watching you here on DA! :salute:

Thank you! It means a lot to hear I've grown, because my worst fear is stagnating with my art. I'm very happy at least one person gets something out of me posting here!

My main beef with posting on dA is some iffy terms and conditions that basically mean dA can use any art posted on it for their own purpose - that, and I'm on tumblr daily so it's very natural for me to upload there. Tumblr mobs can absolutely be a terrible bunch, but that goes for anything on the internet, I've come to realize. It's not an art site like dA at all, it's more of an 'anything goes' platform, so art can easily get lost among all the other content, which sucks sometimes.

I've been lucky enough to follow only great blogs, so my tumblr environment is very pleasant to me - but I totally get that it can be sucky for a lot of people.

Rock on Sero, you're awesome! <3

My art stagnating is also a worry of mine, but I think I do it to myself when I don't draw often enough. So I probably deserve it. :shifty:

Really? Tumblr seems no better than DA, though I get whatcha mean about the terms/conditions although I feel this site allows me to protect my work more. To me I feel more threatened by Tumblr because it's such an anything-goes platform that credit is hard to give sometimes.   Stuff gets reblogged so much that (unless there's an obvious signature) the original poster is lost in translation. That and most of the time on Tumblr I just want to see art, but tags are not always present to help me find the user's art.
Like.. I saw a good example of that on a video with dozens of fanart pieces. Over half the Tumblr-submissions the video poster couldn't credit (despite a big memo saying 'if you drew this TELL ME SO I CAN TELL EVERYONE') because he/she couldn't find the artist.

I thought I'd show a sign of life. I don't comment because I've gotten weirdly anxious in commenting, some days worse than others. But I'm heeere! :dummy:

Don't be so hard on yourself - it can be difficult to find time for drawing, to be sure. Comics have always been the best way for me to keep drawing regularly, but I have no active comics for the moment, so it's a struggle to keep drawing and challenge myself.

Yeah, I totally get what you mean with the trouble of sourcing on tumblr, but on the other hand, it can also mean that the art reaches more people. But I totally understand how dA feels safer in many ways.

I'm glad you felt like you could comment, I really appreciate it!
