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.

Sci-fi (hence the username), and fantasy.
Been a little bit since I talked about any major developments with me or my various ongoing projects, so here's a little update on where things stand and other things of note: --It's the summertime again, and if you've been keeping tabs on me for awhile now, you may have picked up that summertime is generally when I'm least active around here. This is because summer is the busy time of year for my place of work, meaning I'm generally left with a lot less free time for my usual projects, meaning less getting completed, and thereby less gets posted. Lately I've been trying to minimize this problem by finding ways to still keep posting something. Last year I did this by posting old or unfinished art that hadn't otherwise seen the light of day for whatever reason, which I would've liked to repeat again this year...but I'm realizing I used up most of that old art last year, and I never had that big a stash of it to begin with (apparently I'm better at seeing projects through than I first

(Beware of Spoilers, folks!) I am again late to the game on this, but I had a good reason this time: in-between A New Generation and now, I lost ready access to a Netflix account, so it took time to work out a solution to that problem at least long enough to get it watched. And so now watched it I have. My thoughts? Well... First off, I would still fully encourage G5 fans to give it a watch at least once, because it is still furthering the overarching story of G5, and indeed it seems like there's a more expansive arc planned here than we'd all initially gave G5 credit for. A New Generation was just setting the scene, but it's now clear Tell Your Tale (which I've been enjoying quite a bit, incidentally) has served to help transition from A New Generation to Make Your Mark, and indeed its first few episodes seemed to have the explicit goal of setting up for Make Your Mark (and I fully expect it will continue to do so as we build up to the next special later this year and the mainline

It's a New Year

3 min read
So, it's 2022 now. We'll have to see how this one goes--there does seem to be something of an unfortunate trend with the 2020s thus far. That said, 2021 seems to have been a mixed bag for everybody, but for me, it wasn't too bad of a year. It was definite improvement from the previous year at least. Anyway, looking back, I'm pretty pleased with the amount of art I was able to produce this year (even though a lot of it was conceptual sketches), considering that in more recent years I've been able to produce scant little art for that respective year, so nice to know I was able to find the time to work a bit more consistently on those art projects. And as a result, I'm feeling optimistic about that trend continuing and what the upcoming 2022 will bring in terms of art projects. Most of the specifics I have to say on what I have planned for the new year can still be found in this journal post from a couple months back, and I don't have much more to say than that, but here's a few quick
