My Bio

It's been two years (or nearly three?) since my little brother's suicide. 100% of my identity was wrapped up in being his big brother. We were a dynamic duo, and without him I'm no longer a complete person. The road to recovery gets longer and harder every day. The rest of this bio is years old, outdated, and unedited:

I grew up on Calvin & Hobbes, graduated to Gears of War, found delight in just about everything fictional, and (fair warning) I just so happen to like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I've introduced my kid brother to all of these, and while he thinks Pinkie Pie is just about the funniest thing ever, he much prefers chainsawing his way through Locust hordes. Proud of that lad.

I miss him. He was the most important person in my life, and I failed him. He's gone.

As for what I do, I've been drawing since the day I could hold a pencil. I also write when I have spare time. Soon I will take consistent commissions again. And start my webcomic. Until then, I draw my own concept art and try to limit my worldbuilder syndrome.

Remember that if you don't like what you see, you can always look elsewhere.

I've reached the point in my learning journey where I'm ready to focus on gesture practice. This comes in the form of a simple character sketch every day. They'll be low detail, nothing special, and I'm unlikely to upload any sketch that spoils my personal projects. But I will try to upload a sketch a week. There will be times when I'm stuck and can't think of something specific to draw. I'd appreciate it if you could leave your suggestions for poses or actions I could draw in such an event. I'll probably draw a lot of Gears of War sketches in the process, but I want to make all these sketches from imagination. Maybe with one or two referen

So, I'm working on a logo. And I'm doing cash commissions for a guy in town. And I've moved in with my grandma, who I really need to pay rent to. And I owe a great deal of money to my mother and her husband, because phone + car insurance... money which I do not yet have. In other words, it's time to build Wisdom Thumbs as a brand. To do so I'll be making some Youtube videos, drawing for at least six hours every day (really aiming for eight a day), making art tutorials for #Learnuary on Twitter, and adding writing tutorials as well. I've not uploaded many of my stories to DeviantArt, come to think of it. I should do that. But in the meantim

My Dwarf Fortress character lost grip in their right hand.
How do I get it back?
Pray for Surgeons that can actually Surgery? Or just... long rest... ?
It seems to heal on it's own over time.
But now I have an infection.
How do you wash wounds?
