My Bio

Okay, first you thing you should know about me is that writing is a first and foremost favorite thing to do. Heck, I was writing before I could even write.

Instead, I usually used pictures I drew myself to tell the stories I wanted to tell.

Used to to do that often, in fact, to the point I did little else years and years ago. But, while my skills improved for awhile, that eventually kind of fizzled, and I couldn't get those art skills to improve any more. Frustrated, and knowing that my current level of artwork wasn't going to be of use as anything more than a mere on-the-side hobby that was extremely limited, I all but gave it up.

Thankfully, I have rediscovered this almost lost skill, and have gotten it to progress forward again. It's still not where I'd like it (the art you other users produce usually trample mine) but it's growing and is now at levels I'm growing fairly proud of, even if there's plenty more still to learn.

My hope by choosing to make use of this account on deviantART is to hopefully learn new tricks and progress that skill even further than where it stands now, and eventually put that skill to use on various serious art-related projects. Maybe a graphic novel-type thing...we'll see.

So Eclipse has figured out I like fractal art...

So Eclipse has figured out I like fractal art...

...so now the only art it ever seems to suggest I view/fave is mostly fractal art. I mean, I knew I'd been faving a lot of fractals lately, but I didn't think it was THAT much... :P C'mon, Eclipse, fractals aren't the ONLY things I fave on this site--it's okay to suggest other art to me too. :roll: ...though I am loving all of the fractals... ;)

Concerning Eclipse...

Concerning Eclipse...

So...word's dropped that dA's finally going to make the switch over to Eclipse--by the end of next month, it'll be all Eclipse only from there on out. From what I've seen thus far of the public reaction, it's been...fairly predictable, e.g. most hate it and are throwing hissy-fits over it now. Already started seeing campaigns to protest it, boycott it, or promises from users to just up and leave...you know, much of the usual stuff. It'll actually be interesting to see how this'll all play out. I've seen people protest and promise abandon other popular sites when they do major changes like this, only for it to come and ultimately have very little change and most still sticking with it. There'll be some grumbling about it for awhile, but then people adjust and life more or less goes back to normal. I'd like to think the same will happen here with Eclipse--that's certainly happened the past few times dA's pushed through major UI updates--but for Eclipse, the mood does feel rather

Deviant For Ten Years

Deviant For Ten Years

So, as of sometime yesterday, I have been a member on DeviantArt for ten years--a full decade! It's amazing it's been that long already...it still feels like only a couple years ago when I first joined up. Man, does the time fly. I'm currently caught up in the middle of other projects, but I will be putting together a celebratory pic to commemorate this here soon. After that, I have some promising plans for the future that I will begin trickle-feeding details about as the rest of the year progresses, so watch this space if you're interested. ;)
