It certainly has been a long time since I made a journal
I wanted to peek in and say hi
I always wonder how you're all doing. I only kept in touch with a handful of people from here after my hiatus started. A lot has happened since then and I almost thought I'd never come back here.
What has been making me come lurking even more frequently lately has been a breakthrough in my art block and writer's block
I've started a few writing projects and have sketched on and off. And I'm not sure what prompted me to start, but I've finally dove into digital art!
The past few weeks I have been experimenting with Paint Tool Sai and learning tips & tricks from my friend. I'm a complete novice still and it sometimes feels as though I'm learning to draw all over again. It's been lots of fun and I'm just glad my artistic creativity is flowing again. The writing has also been an incredible boost in my creativity and it feels great to write about my characters again.
So, the digital drawing has made me visit dA very often lately for tutorials and such. If I ever manage to finish some of my scribbles (
), I wonder if I should share them here and/or if any of you might want to see me start down this road of digital drawing. I certainly wouldn't be the active little bee I once was, but I wouldn't mind sharing some of my art here once in a while. I have been wanting to come back for the past few months and this might be a way to see how that goes
Anyhoo, I will be lurking in my chatroom
You can come chat with me if you like!
