I love the concept and the design of the character. The lines are clean and really contrast with the coloring and shading. The concept ...


Commissions Open: Previous Work Not For Sale BTW
I will not sell any of my previous drawings, if I'm to make money from my work I must first know what my potential buyer wants so I can make that piece specifically for them.

Never heard of Vexx

Since you are also in "Behind the Voice Actors" site, I was wondering if you can look at the walk-through of Vexx, and see if you recognize the voice actors.

Is it selfish of me to seek validation from others? :/
Sun Feb 26, 2017, 2:54 PM
I want to do another voice-choice poll, but I kind'a wanna be patient and wait for others to vote and see why they voted so.
Thu Jan 19, 2017, 10:01 PM
You know, when I typed "Please Comment" in the polls I expect people to comply so they'll explain why they choose a vote!

I don't know if anyone has caught on if you've seen my digital stuff, but if not then I shall inform everyone that much of my newer drawings are done with the brush tool in Photoshop. Occasionally I'll get people telling me I should use the pen tool, but the reason why I personally stick with the brush tool is well... I kind'a, really suck at using the pen tool for drawing. Besides I like to think the brush, or even pencil tool adds more authenticity to my drawings and does not make them stand out as cheap vectors like how I use to do digital lines in Illustrator.

But if you honestly feel that pen tool is the way to go, then if anyone knows any good tutorials on how to draw with pen, please share them with me. I'd be more than willing to try another palate.

As for now I think I'll stick with brush.

*sigh* Yet again the same song and dance! 

It's no coincidence now, there is a pattern that every time there's a backlash, it's usually against someone who is a woman, or even someone of another minority. This is one reason why I tend to lean more on the left and even identify my self as a social justice warrior, because these things still continue!
You know what I find funny? If someone calls someone else a "Social Justice Warrior," they're basically complementing them as opposed to insulting them
I wanna vent, I'm tired and angry, and depressed, but I don't know how to put it into words. There is a lot of things that make me this way but I completely lost the words I wanted to say! Long in short of it, my mom's job and her own mother is making it more and more stressful for her and for me to, I am still unemployed, I have little to no friends in real life, I have to put up with bias bigotry and anti-sjw bs all over the internet, I have to drive a lot and it's stressful, and even though I had all summer to do more art work I barely did any; I have a rough cintiq monitor at home, and even then I still wouldn't know what to write for my stories or how to draw something, and there's always something in real life to detract me from what I want to do, and both online and in person anything I say or do can be a big mistake that'll make me regret who I am. It also doesn't help I tend to have post-traumatic stress so I tend to remember bad things from my past every now and then.

I made no secret that I want to be an artist, I want to have a career in animation and make shows or even films for everyone to enjoy; I also want to write my own stories for people to enjoy as well. In general I love to create and share. But there are always factors holding me back, and not a single day goes by without me fearing of being an insignificant nobody wasting his life away when he has so much potential for something greater! But at the end of the day I wonder...

Is fame really even worth it?! Considering all the scandals that turn up, or generally how many of the people we admire turn out to be complete monsters; and aside from that there's also the risk that your work may not get picked up anyway for whatever reason, and even if it does, the people you work for may just stab you in the back so they can take what's yours and suck it dry.

So again, is it even worth it?!

I'm not looking for other people's sympathy, I shouldn't have to spill details of my personal life but I need an outlet; I'm sad, angry, stressed, and confused; and I don't know what else to do.
