Balloon Ride
Something I haven't done in a while, which is completely digital art, right down to doing the initial sketch and lining  too (I like using pencil and paper a lot still) - so this is using a truly lovely piece of stock from Senshi Stock - Long way down -… - which is a beautiful picture all on it's own, and this is what I thought of when I saw it.

This is all done in Krita! Ciao!

50 Hand Challenge
So last year I started the Senshi Stock 50 hand challenge thing (which you can still see here --> 50 Hand Challenge Pack - 244 Hand References), as a way to improve my hand drawing and to give me something nice to draw and practice when I couldn't think of anything. This is mostly done in traditional pencil and regular sketchbook paper. I really liked doing this, and I do think my hands improved over time - so it's definately a great way to learn, focus on one thing and draw it until you really know it. Since I've finally finished, and got a new scanner for Christmas I thought it was about time I uploaded em.

At some point I might do the foot version of the same challenge.

  • Listening to: BBC Radio One
  • Reading: Non-Programmer's Guide to Python 3
  • Watching: Memories
  • Playing: Fallout $
  • Eating: Nothing!
  • Drinking: Water
I've just noticed this account was 10 years old last year. A lot has happened in 10 years. I've gone from 16 to 26 (last year, I'll be 27 this year).

I was in high school, then college, then university, and now I'm pretty much a house wife - though it's not as simple as that. I support other people that are important to me, and that makes me happy.

I used to draw a lot of anime and manga copied from my then manga faves. I used to use just paper, pencil and fine liners. Then later a graphics tablet. I still like anime and manga, though I have a lot less patience with new stuff.

While I do art a lot less now, and it probably holds a lesser place in my heart, I still love it - it's relaxing, and fun to be able to create something. I still like doodling and inking, but I also like photography, and video making, and cooking, and video games, and a whole bunch of other stuff now. I'm teaching myself to program (second attempt now :p), and just got a new camera.

Like, you know...I'm still me, but a slightly different me.

So yeah, Happy 10th Birthday for last year, Deviant Art account. You know and I know I should totes post on here more.
