Two months ago I nearly died in a motorcycle accident.
...it sounds so dramatic when I say it like that.
I was riding along at nearly 70 miles per hour when I hit a badger that was crossing the highway. I don't remember anything about the accident, only waking up in the ICU, my body completely numb from all the pain killers they'd given me. my arm didn't work too well and I couldn't bend my left knee due to much of the skin and muscle getting ground off..
I'm only now getting back to normal life. My bones are healing up, the road rash is mostly gone, and I can use my left arm again.
When something like that happens, your perspective tends
I've returned to college to finish my art degree and since I also work full time, regularly go to the gym, and like to spend at least one night per week in the company of friends, I really haven't done anything with the Forsaken. I'm not happy about that. Maybe some day I can do some more work on it, but I don't see it happening in the near future.
On the bright side, I'm back to working in physical media and I'm really, really enjoying it. I owe much to my digital painting experience, but without the physical foundation I found myself lacking in many ways. I'm happy to be painting again. It's a sort of homecoming for me.
Believe me when I say my life has changed dramatically since my last update. As a result, I haven't even touched photoshop, or even my sketchpad, since March. I want that to change. I need it to. If I ignore my need to create for long enough it's going to send me into a vicious tailspin.
The Forsaken has suffered a great deal. I want to return to it, to finish it, but I think I need to go full black and white or else I'll be working on it until the day I die. If this part sounds pretentious in any way, please forgive me... if there's anybody out there that would like to color my pencil work on the Forsaken, please link me to some sample work
I love your orc falconer! was wondering if I could add it as a background in one of my flash games? It would go nice, it is simply a hobby of mine but I'd want your permission as a lot of people will play the game and see your picture! I will give credit with a link to your profile if you say yes.
