I decided to do my once-per-year journal update to welcome in 2013. And yes, this welcome is a bit late, but... um... Yeah. Moving on!
I've officially decided that I should stick to painting alien skin. Although it's been a couple years since my Thane painting, I still find myself unsatisfied with the pieces I do of, you know, non-green/yellow/red/brown-skinned characters. I have, however, continued to foray into the world of colour, so perhaps one day when I can hold up a painting beside Thane and feel that it doesn't look like it's been produced by a completely different artist (or I throw away my frustration/shame at not producing colour works to that same level of skill and detail) you will see some more colourful art. Also, colouring is time consuming. REEEAAAALLY time consuming.
That said, I've also gotten into the cosplay scene, so if any of you have any advice to give on that front, I'd be most appreciative!
Anyway, that's about all there is to update you on the art front. Fare thee well, travelers!
