Do you still do the BJD thing?

Yes I do! I currently have five dolls, the latest being a Soom Glot!

Ask me anything

You never write, you never call. Don't you love me?

Bitch, hell no! :D

Ask me anything

DC, Marvel, Image, Other or Indie?

I've always been a huge Marvel fan. I started with it back when I was 10 and was hooked. As I get older I realize how much the companies no longer matter, it's all about the love of the genre, so I've moved from reading Marvel to Tokyopop to Onipress and finally picking up my first real DC title.

Ask me anything


So...I totally don't mean to completely forget about this blog. For a while, I forgot about a lot of things, but I'm really trying to get started on everything all over again.

I'm currently in the works of doing several sketches, WIPs, and comics. Most of which I will be posting here as soon as I can remember!

I'm really sorry about being dead in the water here...I definitely want to rectify that!

Digital Evolution?

So I wonder lately about my art. I love traditional work. I love doing it. I love watercolors, using markers, my colored pencils… but I’m finding that I’ve been drawing digitally almost exclusively. I don’t know how this reflects on me as an artist and how I’ll be viewed.
I’ve heard people looking down on artists who draw digitally and even though I expect to work traditionally still, I don’t see myself going back to sketchbooks the way I used to.

I love my tablet PC. I use it as my notebooks, sketchbooks… it’s just so versatile. You see, I’m a perfectionist, really. If I don’t like the way my handwriting looks, I have to re-do the entire page. If I draw a sketch and something looks off, I have to use a brand new page. I don’t have this problem with my tablet. If I like the way I draw, say, an eye, but the proportions on the face are wrong, all I would have to o is select and move it where it belongs, where I would previously erase over and over and eventually give up and turn the page. Honestly it’s a much more green method to drawing. I waste less paper and I feel like my art is much better, to be honest. I can also reserve my good paper for my paintings by using print outs and my art projector…it’s all good, if you ask me.

So why do “real artists” gripe so much about people doing digital art not doing it “correctly”. Work is still done, isn’t it? A piece is still drawn, and a statement is still made. So what’s the deal?

What are your opinions of this change in art in a fast-growing digital age? Are artists who draw exclusively digital not real artists?

Today's update!

Today you get an actual full pic update on my Cailey piece, likely going to be yet another char sheet I'll end up never finishing. Oh, well.

Part 2!

Latest work!

I've been working hard lately around the whole moving thing. Unfortunately, the lack of Internet makes me realize how different my pieces turn out when I have references. I've got two more works in mind and then I'll probably start coloring a bunch of pics I've been holding off on. The Roxie pic also may be done in a watercolor variant, but I haven't decided yet. Anyway! Latest works!

I get distracted easily...

So, the big contest is done and I'm getting back to things after the holidays. I've been arranging things for my Etsy store and back to doing some drawing done; concept art and ideas mostly. Also still doing some Poser when I'm in the mood.

All around being productive when I'm able to be. Goooooood stuff.
