Blog ain’t dead, I’ve just been hella busy.
Work hasn’t slowed down at all. I’m still producing stuff every day – it just seems a bit redundant to post every bit of it. At this point, I’ve more-or-less found my groove, and my work has transitioned to a place I’m happy with. I’m sure I’ll post stuff from time to time, it just won’t be as frequent.
Now for something I haven’t posted in a while (mostly to not jinx myself from never finishing it): A work in progress!
I’m determined to really, like, learn to do digital art in Photoshop. Forserious this time. Over half the battle of digital painting is dedicating the time and energy to it. I do learn a lot and I do improve every time I attempt one of these…But it’s so tedious.
It’s like masturbation with no finish. You could go forever and never get it where you want.
Like, I look at this WIP and I’m like, “Wow, I’m learning techniques I had no idea existed last year, and there are a lot of things I really like about this, but now I want to redraw the face for the eighth time and oh man are the limbs too long, maybe I should try this filter…” and it goes on and on.
Sometimes – especially when we’re talking about anime fan art – there comes a point where you’ve just gotta let it go and finish the stupid thing. You can do better on the next one. Ultimately, there are some things I like about this, and there are some things I hate about this, but dammit, if I don’t finish it I’ll never move on.
Anyway this is a fan art of my favorite character from Neon Genesis Evangelion and I hope to finish it by the end of the year, lol.
