Critique My Work Stamp by SparkLum Thanks for Feedback by IceXDragon OC Stamp by MarikBentusi

Random Favourites

So. Rambles. Don't feel obliged to read.

This is the second set of paints that's expired, having been used two or three times. Guilty as charged. I must stop lying to myself- once, I liked traditional painting, but the moment I learned digital there was no point in bothering with real paints. What do you mean there's no sketch layer I can later delete? What do you mean I can't zoom in? No undo? No expanding the canvas if the initial idea grows? Also, I'll tell you guys in secret I'm actually kinda really bad when it comes to colors. I can see shapes, movement, weight, how they relate to one another... Doing lineart is a blast. But color, I have to squint to work it out. Mixing paints to get a tone I wanted is a grueling task, and things such as designing nice color schemes and selecting palettes elude me. So, digital also cuts out that chunk of difficulty.

Too bad I still can't use my tablet without screwing up my hand. It's been good recently, so, I worked a bit on a picture that I have started... months ago. It went well, but the next day I woke up with pain that would not go away for a good few days.

Oh well.

I'll stick to ink and pencils for now, then. Using colored pencils is an easy exercise that may help me see colors better yet.

In other news, I FINALLY found the flash drive to which I saved the stories I deleted off this account (old friends may remember), as well as a few others nobody has seen before, about my old characters. They're not bad! They're good, actually! I deleted them because that was the time a few people I knew irl watched me, and I got anxious they'd JUDGE ME. But I don't care anymore. x'D And neither do they, really.

My precious babies. I've been thinking a lot about them recently. Maybe something will come of it. One picture I'm almost done with will, at least.

In other news, after a brief adventure with trying to come off my meds that didn't end happily, I've come to terms with the fact I may have to be taking SSRIs indefinitely. I'm not happy about it, but I'm hardly happier when depressed. =P

HELLO, THIS IS HAGGIS

*sobs* I'm sorry I'm such a horrible, not-alive roleplay partner. I'm trying to be more active. ;w;
