I've been gone for a while, DeviantArt. But now I'm back again.
I wasn't feeling very confident about my abilities as an artist. I'm nowhere near where I want to be, and I've gotten into the habit of second-guessing everything I do. Sometimes, it feels impossible to get to where I want to be on a technical level... I'm still just beginning in many ways.
But I owe it to my friends to keep on working at it, to keep on trying. Even if I am never at the level I want to be, I can't leave this behind. I'm going to keep on working. Progress is going to be slow, but there will be progress. I promise.
I have finally enabled prints of my DeviantArt works, after some complaints from my local friends convinced me to try it. I've never sold prints before, I don't think I have enough attention to sell any in the first place, and I'm not 100% sold on this DeviantArt print service, but then again, I've no experience with it at all, and as my friend said, what do I have to lose?
So this is a bit of an experiment for me.
Right now, I have prints available for "Link" http://www.deviantart.com/print/16651651/? and "Snow Cranes" http://www.deviantart.com/print/16541310/? .
I could enable prints for any of my other works, no problem. I have high-res
I am, briefly, taking commissions for original digital artwork, up until December 26th, or until I get 3 interested parties. Prices are very negotiable, but I usually charge between $20 - $100 depending on the work desired.
All proceeds will be donated to the L5R Topaz Championship Food Drive.
So feel free to spread the word around! If you know someone who wants original cartoony artwork of their L5R character or something else, tell them to contact me at this address: email@example.com

This Tuesday, the FCC is finally voting on Net Neutrality policies.
I've been a long-time supporter of Net Neutrality, and I've done my fair share of soapbox-standing, so I won't repeat the very many reasons why we all should be in support of Net Neutrality and pushing for The Federal Communications Commission to stop companies like Comcast and AT&T from blocking where their users can and can't go on the Internet without paying a premium.
I'm also not going to generate a fountain of dread by pointing out that most of the politicians participating in the vote do not understand the technology and have made it a point not to even attempt to un
