After a few weeks of hemming and hawing, I think I'm mostly set on the look of my website. Which is obvious, given you're apparently reading this. On top of this, I've also set my desktop computer up and turned it on for the first time since the first week of May.
I've been doing all of my art and whatnot on my ipad, which is lovely, but I'm apparently getting rusty at computer-based art since it's been nearly three or four months since I've busted out the graphics tablet and started my good friend Corel Painter.
This is what I finished as my "welcome back" piece:
I think of these as my "machines." I'm not entirely sure what their deal is, except they're supposed to basically be sentient erector sets. They make me feel sad, but I still like drawing them. There are a few on the main page, if you click through enough times. I don't like this as much as the ones on the front page, but that's because this looks mediocre and lame in comparison...and definitely took me a half-hour at the most. Woo, practice pieces.
All I know is, the slowness of this desktop reminds me why I wasn't too upset at not using it in the first place. On top of that, I'm getting used to a new graphics tablet and a new monitor, etc...all of which spells disaster for me.
Or else these are just excuses.
I'll get back in the saddle. Or I won't, and I'll be a sad sack for the rest of my life.
