Well Hello. I hadn't realized how long it had been since I wrote a journal. Oops.
Things are good but tight at the moment. I could be going without internet for a few days, but that is still up in the air.
Lately I have been spending a good deal of my time using my tablet for various things. Trying to improve, and I am feeling better each time I use it.
I have started using Corel Painter 11 and Paint Tool Sai. I am really loving Painter 11. I am still doing my clean lines in Photoshop and color edits, but that is because I haven't quite figured Painter 11 out all the way. Onward to learning it fully! Haha.
I have temporarily re-opened my GaiaOnline Art Shop Thread. Although, I mainly just want to work on head-shots and busts at the moment. I took portrait classes when I was a kid, but would really love to practice and work more on facial structure and expressions.
One will never improve if they don't take the advancing steps.
I am really hoping to get a few more deviants posted before my premium membership runs out in the next month or so. I really hope I can get another membership, but.... we will just have to see.
Outside of my little internet and computer world, I have been preparing to celebrate my son, Vincent's 5th birthday. Just 12 more days to go. Where has the time gone?
Still thinking on whether or not to do theme or not for him, maybe How to Train your Dragon? He loves that movie, and well... so do I, haha.
Right now I am working on some key chains and charms to take to a nearby arts & crafts flea market and try to sell. ::Crossing my fingers:: And, if things work out the way I hope they will, I plan on opening an etsy shop.
I have a bunch of plans and things I am working on, but it all takes time. Haha, patience is a virtue! Thankfully my wonderful, Brandon, has been supportive about all of this. At least he gets that I really want to do these things and has been by my side every step of the way, steadily encouraging me.
Well, I better go and get some things done so that I can make time for my creativity... otherwise I won't be able to sleep tonight.
Hope you all are having a good week
