I've been placing a bit of a slower hold on digital art for a lot of reasons. College has started back up, and taking two art classes on the side along with my core credits, I've been focusing a lot of my efforts into keeping my GPA up in order to maintain my scholarships. I also have sketchbooks on the side that I've been disciplining myself into finishing completely before moving on to a new set, so with my art classes along with all the doodling in between that I've been doing, I've been a bit burnt out to throw digital art into the mix.
The biggest reason, however, is that I've been taking on more shifts from work in order to save money up for a Cintiq 13HD. I've been drawing on the same bamboo for the last four years, so it's about that time that I move into a more professional tool. It's $1000 in total for the entire set, and I have $115 already saved up from the last few weeks, so it's been a steady climb!
So if I seem absent for quite a while, I've been piling on more work while focusing on traditional work. I'm not very active on deviantart during these times, but I am consistently active on tumblr! If anyone wants to follow or just simply stop by, send me a note, and I'll send you the url!
Happy late Valentines day, and apologies to everyone I owe art too!
