I recently secured a WACOM 22HD. Although this is significantly good news for myself to a lot of respect, I remain cautiously optimistic because there are still some hindering aspects before I dive straight in to work.
Firstly, at the moment, I have very little guaranteed free time these days. It's my responsibility to take care of certain necessities and obligations before I can really sit down, relax and draw.
Secondly, I need a lot of time to practice drawing digitally; the transference of pencil drawing skills to a WACOM tablet is a pretty easy task, but I prefer to hone my skills so that drawing on the WACOM tablet feels as natural as drawing with the pencil. Drawing on the Nexus 7 really didn't assist a whole lot as an introduction to digital drawing.
Lastly, although I can certainly color a lot of my drawings without the need for extensive practice, a majority of my other art projects are still in conceptualization phase (it never occurred to me that I'd get my WACOM this early). Being deprived of time for some time didn't help my digital drawing skills nor my project conceptualizations either.
For the time being, there is not much I can do in terms of new uploads and really showcasing my artistic prowess. I can still try to put in more time to join more groups and add more faves in the meantime. If you know about my YouTube channel
, chances are I won't be able to upload anything new for a little while longer.
This may or may not have come to your attention, but I completely removed a short comic (over 30 pages/ drawings) I drew as a major assignment for one of my university courses. Reason being is that I simply couldn't stand looking at it. It was insanely rushed and had a lot of implied action that was side-lined for ridiculous amounts of exposition. It was unbearable to look at for me and I believe I uploaded it as an excuse to populate my gallery. I can do better than this and I don't need it appearing amongst the rest of my gallery. Not one comic page had even 100 views which lead me to believe I made the right choice. To the 1 or 2 people who for some reason faved 2 comic pages, sorry but this comic can't stay.
Still 30 more cubicle drawings to clean up and upload, hang tight. There may be at least 1 or 2 extra drawings uploaded along the way.
