It's been awhile since I last posted one of these and I've been in a rather particularily good mood lately after getting out of the depressive state that I was in for months late last year. After the new year came, all that depression basically lifted. I have no idea how it happened, but I'm rather thankful it did and grateful for having the friends that helped me through some of it.
If you haven't already noticed, I've been posting a few new pieces lately that have been done by some really talented artists, like this guy here:
who happened to have done these two pieces:
Not only this, but a few weeks ago I managed to win a kiriban that was done by
for his 20,000 views!
The prize was any piece of art I wanted and I went ahead and had him draw my most "known" character Azunai. Because why not, right? It'll be posted on here once Morgan finishes the piece.
What else...? Well, last night was my first attempt at coloring one of the linearts that I've had in my collection for awhile now. I'm not super new to Photoshop but I don't have enough experience yet to know how to use certain tools (lasso tool, pen tool) for coloring just yet and decided to use GIMP, since it was a bit easier for me to use. I figured it'd be a nice way to work up to using the big boy once I'm more familiar with things. However, I've been watching some artists via livestream the past few weeks and I suppose that's been a real inspiration for me to want to learn how to color. Of course, there are MANY artists on here that are just awe-inspiring when it comes to coloring and painting. I have realized that there's a possibility in becoming as talented as the artists that have inspired me, with a lot of practice of course. I do have to say that I'm quite proud of my first attempt at coloring:
Finally, I picked up Injustice for the Xbox 360 last week and have been enjoying it quite a bit. If you happen to own it on the 360 as well, add me! My live tag is: Reldin
