i haven't been visibly active here in a long time, what gives?
nothin' special. Not that i've lost any feelings for newgrounds, nonononono-i just genuinely haven't done anything in the last few...years...
shamefully, if i don't have anything to upload to NG, i feel i've lost my function here, but i finally acknowledge how lame that is and i hope to rectify the situation.
I've been living in the UK since may 2011. i left my studio (ie art-spattered loft in my parent's house) behind which meant i haven't been able to do any sculpture or physical painting in that time. While i assumed that when that day would come it'd be that i'd be swallowed into some structured art occupation like special effects or some kind of sculpting manufacturing. when actually i've ended up settling down and doing digital art on the side like 1940's housewife and her victory garden. her cock-and-dinosaur smothered victory garden.
in that while, i've realized how much i loathe digital painting. i hate it. i don't know photoshop well at all, and i never took any formal art education so going into this blind with only the techniques i've picked up via sketchpad doodling. I've learned that those tangible methods of pawing and fussing with your drawing are too alien for me in the tablet-to-monitor interface i use now (STILL TOM, THANKS FOR THAT REPLACEMENT TABLET <3<3<3<3) i know that lack of education isn't much of an excuse. Many incredible, gainfully employed artists here on NG aren't hindered by that, but photoshop has always been my stumbling block. i've fully realized my ineptitude with the software but i have no scanner so i haven't been able to upload sketches either. after this holiday season i hope to rectify that with either learning and acquiring tools to utilize photoshop better, or getting a proper scanner and taking up ye olde arte of painting. either way i apologize to any followers and these shitty half-formed psds.
<3 da newgrounds
Africa Dudes is still the best <3
