Take it easy with going back to drawing, take a good care about your wrist.
I hope that you and your family are allright. No need to rush anything, when you
feel tired or you are in pain, do something relaxing. I also have problems with staring
too much at the monitor screen, my eyes get sore, but I just don't know when to quit.
We have to find our balance, just as you said, you will find you balance pretty soon,
and post something beautiful. You have repaired my mood for this evening, I thought
that you were gone, but your words made a difference, a big change for today.
You take care, and be good, until our next meeting.
alright. no more messing. I officially hereby call myself 100%
now.. to get back to a daily drawing scedual. uhg. I'll think of something soon.
for now, heading back to my confort zone. which is, drawing animated characters...

Hey man. Thanks for that draw over in the spartan camp. I am definitely gonna focus on drawing through my bodies more when I construct them.
I really like that Avatar paint you did. You Check out images of fire performers. Its the closest thing you can get to fire benders in this world lol. The movements fire makes when you see a performer is just like how the portray it in the series. Also it just looks AWESOME!!!! lol.
hey Pete! thanks for stopping by. Im always happy to help. as for fire performers, hey thats not half a bad idea. ill watch some movies on youtube. nothing like the moving images
@Seraph- hey, nice to see you still around. wow, I wonder how you've been doing *goes to check sb* yup! definitely some solid improvements! great job. I'll come by for real-real soon. :p bed time here now.

thanks for the welcome back!
got the wrist issue covered now.
well, drawing 1h a day max in one session is a bit hard, but at least I've had no pain any more.
lightning mcqueen; I had to peep for the rear, colored by my daughter (almost 2)
this weeks Loomis/Spartan.
Living without pain is an excellent thing, and I can see that you finally managed
to achieve that. I am so happy about this occasion. Bambi was in real hard pain
for years, as she was shot down with a combat shotgun, but now she is getting better
and she is not coughing so much blood out any more. Oh, what a wonderful is this
world, we just need to find the beauty of it. Forget about bills and problems, you
just think about the positive aspect of the nature. Your anatomy studies are turned
back on, and that can mean only one thing, and that is that victory is at our hands.
I often thought that you disappeared but you always surprise me on a positive way.
Plus you have brought a total new stack of cards to the table, with the Lara Croft
against the ocean painting. You planned that excellently and performed even better.
I mean Lara against the ocean, itís a silly discussion, we all know that Lara will win.
Ok, the old man and the ocean was a tough one to break, but the old man had not
much of a sexual energy and his hands were weak. Lara is a different story, she
can do miracles even to a forest dwelling muddy deer. I am happy once again
that you are here and that you are working with full power and healthy.
Letís celebrate now.
@Plissken-oh, man! thank you so much for making my day. your posts just make me happy. the part about bambi. and of course Lara vs Poseidon. which somehow turned into a very ranchy scene in my head, the way you told it. Lara and Poseidon on their 'wedding night'. a little too much booze, a little too much fun, and suddenly the old man of the ocean is dying of a heart attack while our little heroin tried to get him off and... out before she gets crushed by the weight of a thousand seas. uugh. you be getting to me with those lil dicked man drawing you do I think :p
@Flashback- oh man! that's true! I can be die hard drawing now. like the Rocky of drawing. only I didn't box too much and get my face kicked in. I just drew too much and then my wrist broke. haha!
Im glad you liked those from memory. I struggled a bit with them, and when I peeked at the end there were all those mistakes! it was a bit frustrating.
1 drawing. lil more then half an hour. from pixelovely ref. focussing on shape and what light does to it.
So there was a big action packed stack on the wedding night after all. I knew it. Shame for the
old man, Poseidon, really shame his heart giving out just before the brightest moments in his life.
That is a real bad luck and irony. I can imagine Lara going for it, and then suddenly the machine
is shutting down right before her eyes, leaving her imagination vulnerable and breaking her
expectations right down to half. You just let your mind go and crazy imagination will flow.
You did a good job on the last sitting pose, pixelovely is becoming your true friend and companion
on the further roads and journeys. Itís also good that you made her upper body a bit Schwarzeneggeristic,
she has been pulling of a lot of carrot sacks lately. Sacks with more than hundred and fifty pounds,
and she bulked her self up. I like that idea truly. Will you post another drawing today? Cause we
will be waiting for it.
thank you for that those carrot sacks did the lady good, no?
there was no drawing yesterday and the day before, because I had some thinking to do.
It seems I will be loosing my job. which is sad because I really loved my job.
but, I suppose I should see this as an opportunity to do better. so I'll do that!
Lots of energy in your sketches, its very fun to look at. Not sure what to suggest. I would definitely like to see more studies. At any rate, keep it up!
Itís not good that you are losing your job. Itís really not good, especially if you love that job.
What is your current job, if itís not a secret of course? You had to do some thinking, thatís right
in these tight moments of destiny, a man has to do a reevaluation of his real situation, and make
a right decision. What ever happens, you have my support, I am not wealthy so I could give
you financial help, but maybe in the future, when I become a millionaire, then I will help you
with some true gold. But for now, all I can do is to write some motivating words.
I am so happy that you turned your drawings to a chicken subject, these chickens are welcome
to my chicken farms whenever they want to change their living environment. You did
a nice move on these fearless chicken drawings, you did that under pressure, and thatís why
it worthy double the price. I hope that things will be solved with the best possible outcome.
Till then hold on, and think positive.
I did 3d animation for a lil game company. 3d a week. ah, it is a shame. I doubt I'll find anything like it again. still, there was hardly always work for me, so I had to do some stuff on the sides too. bug fixing. sql. not that I minded. ah, anyway,I shall look and think on what to do now. something stable. maybe even earn more. there is something to be said for those, esp with 2young kids.
and, indeed. my chickens can live in your chicken coops! they are wild, and dangerous chicks, I must warn. scarred by life, and ready to take out their own piece. I think they'll fit right in there
Eager beaver is looking sweet and cute at the same time.
How are you feeling lately, did you solved your job situation?
I hope you are ok and happy to go into new adventures, cause
a big and promising year is ahead of us.
thanks. the problem is not fixed, but I have almost a year before I need to have a new job. So, I am sure it will be okay i am feeling pretty good about thinks and I am sure it will be fine ^^ it will be a great year!
Whatever happens, good times or bad times, remember that your friends (me amongst
them) and your family will be there to support you. Try to feel good and be happy as
much as you can, and never worry too much.
thanks pliss; you da best.
and every1 here's been great about it too. hehe. it seems to mean I'll have to work more somehow? I wonder how that works
vector beaver. for animation.
omg, we're BACK! wow.
hey pliss! actually, the beaver is building a tower. the file should be up at youtube, but I can't find it yet. have to ask my now-old-companie where they put it I guess.
on the jobless state: wow. I'm exhausted. I'm still officially working @ the company, just taking my vacation days now. but I've just had 2 days off right now and I am puffed tired :p
did a lot of work, for sure. almost all the paperwork is done. now it's time to figure out what to do.
first choice. freelancing!
which means fix my portfolio, fix my website, find and meet clients..
yeah; I'm gonna be busy.
and, yes. this means lots a drawing. at least.
I'd love to show some. but im getting errors uploading. is that common? maybe CA isn't all that done yet huh?
desperate times, deperate measures. trying to post some art by linking it from my old blogger wich I hardly ever use...

Itís a bit problematic time for updating, only the strongest survive, and you are strong, art
and life vise. Just as you said, desperate times, require desperate measures. You did good
with your pencils sketches, and you performed even better with the watercolor painting, as
you and your child was painting. Such a marvelous outcome. It would be a real shame to
put all these positive energies and feelings aside. But you did recorded it on paper and
uploaded it, wonderful feeling overall. Plus I wanted to mention that at this moment the
sketchbook links in the signature area donít work, so I had a bit trouble to find your sketchbook,
but in the end I am happy that I am here. Go go for more victories, paint and draw more, and
upload when this crazy machine works out again. All the best to you and to your family.
hey hey long time no see
I really like the drawing with the flipflops and the legs, it seems very dynamic to me.
