Greetings to the few stragglers who still swing by this old page, but I'm coming back to art and I think I mean it this time.

So here's the deal, I love art and drawing, but I have a problem. I draw traditionally from reference, and recently I've been painting those drawings digitally. My average output on new stuff is about 2-3 a year, if that, which doesn't make any sense. 

I have this problem with art, and I think it comes down to lack of self confidence with drawing. See I'll start a new drawing, and I'll make it into a whole event, get the pencils out, clear space, and make room for where this drawing is going to sit for the next few months until I finish it, and that last bit is the problem. I start to make progress on my new drawing, it starts to look good, and then I get this mixture of procrastination, and an innate fear that if I keep going ill mess it up, and god dammit it looks good right now! So away it goes, back into my drawer, 'I'll get back to it when I'm ready'. Months pass. Eventually I reach a point where I stop being so precious and pick it up and finally finish it in a 'Fuck it ive got a new idea I need to get this one outa the way, even if i do ruin it' kinda way. I never ruin it, I'm usually happy with it, so that cycle needs to stop.

This is how I'm going to do it. The title of this entry. I've always wanted to get into digital art in a real way, mostly because it will speed me up, throw away that fear of messing a piece up, and allow me to have a bit of fun with drawing again. I've got a little wacom, and I'm taking the plunge. I'm not leaving traditional art behind, if anything I'm doing this so I can return to it a better and more effective artist. 

Im two days in, and two pieces of art down, first day was fun, today was hard. But hey, I've finished two drawings in one sitting, which is literally a miracle for me. Who knows whether tomorrow will be awesome or a mess, but its going to finished and uploaded regardless.

Have'nt done a Journal entry in a while either, mostly because O know nobody reads this page anymore, but this has been kind of therapeutic for me..  If you are reading along however, Hi there!
