For about five years now, I've been going on long hikes with my parents. During these hikes, I've brought along my cameras, and I've taken a large number of pictures over the years.
However, for various reasons, I've pretty much just stuffed the photos I've taken into dusty corners of my hard drive and cloud storage.
This has changed.
Recently I've decided that it's finally time to go through the thousands of images I've stored away, touch them up, and submit them to DA. This means that there will soon be a flood of photos coming from this account. I'm going to use Sta.sh to spread them out over time, but we're still looking at a few thous
Today begins my Drawtober / Inktober challenge!
As planned, I'll be uploading my top 30 Robot Masters (+ favorite Wily Machine) from the Mega Man Classic series at a rate of one per day throughout October. Note that I'm not drawing them in any order -- these are my favorites out of the ~90 Robot Masters we've seen in the series.

This time of year is often a time of being extra creative. You have NaNoWriMo, Inkober, Drawtober, etc. So, let's bring up some positive vibes and play
As those of you who follow MYPeanutGallery (https://www.deviantart.com/mypeanutgallery) are already aware, I ended up becoming infested by an intestinal parasite in late August, and spent some time in the hospital.
I've been home for awhile now, and while the parasites have been eradicated, I'm still dealing with some of the aftermath from their invasion. The main problem now is a general lack of energy, which is part of the reason I haven't come on to post this update. I've been focusing what energy I have on my own projects (which are mostly outside of DA), as getting sick set some of them back by a few weeks.
Unfortunately, we still don't really know where I came into contact
