Hey guys! How you all doing? I've been super quiet lately cause I've been very busy, and intimidated by my 15K backlog of notifications to get through and putting it off for future Killy's problem. I... kinda need to deal with it XD I know that most of it is deviations to look at so... I really hope I don't resort to mass deleting but I may need to T.T
Anyways, I've been really busy! Since my last journal in early February talking about how I was getting into water colours, I've been doing a lot more water colour art that I haven't posted cause well... I'm learning, and a lot of the pieces aren't going to turn out how I want it to, and that's ok. Just know that I am still having a lot of fun with my colours. I ended up buying an olive green water colour to help with my skin tones, cause I wasn't able to make a good olive skin tone to colour Silvyr with. I'm not able to get a WAY better match- I just haven't scanned anything with the results IT's really bugged me that I'm still VERY bad at skin tones in general, so I think I'm going to make it my next priority, and I'm not sure how I'm going to do it cause skin tones are so affected by local colours versus light I have a few people giving me tips though, so hopefully I can figure it out It's just... very vulnerable being new at things as you can imagine ^^
Since my last journal, I've been rehabilitating a rolled ankle back to health. I injured my ankle late November, and my ankle swelled up like a tennis ball. since then, most of the swelling has gone down, but not gone, so I went for a second opinion at the physio, and found out my arch was gone in my right foot, and my ankle was rolled. Since late February, til now, I've been doing physio work and stretches and heat to strengthen my whole ankle cause it was super weak, and 2 months later, it's strong again, so I'm hoping I can go back to the gym again, even though the puffiness is still there. I'm hoping it doesn't come back, but it seems to flare up if I sit down for too long >.>
Lastly, I'm working on my first comic in ages! Like... to sell! I don't know if it's apparent, but I've been having a LOT of fun with playing my new Dungeons and Dragons character, Silvyr Rose He's the rainbow haired half elf in my recent art and Dungeons and Dragons folder I'm going to do a comic about his journey in the game, or atleast some of it. I just need to translate a role playing game to comic reading structure, and change all of the copyright content so I'm not stealing from the campaign... which is going to be tricky. It's actually easier to start from scratch, but I can't get Silvyr's character to work in a unique storyline without a HUGE amount of world building and reworking of his character T.T It's going to be fun though Stay tuned for art from that
Anyways- That's all for now! Tell me how you're all doing! I haven't chatted here on DA for ages Who's still lurking around and chatting? Is 2018 treating you well?
