Back after a long break from dA. My time off wasn't motivated by any particular issue with people (as a couple of messages in my inbox implied) but instead a deep seated need to grow as an artist. I know that sounds kind of pretentious for a smutmonger churning out fetish pics but the thing is that even as I grew as a DAZ/Poser artist and slowly learned modelling techniques to improve myself I just felt like I wasn't really creating things. I chafed with odd jealously at people who had what I considered a more universal skillset. I looked at the occassional requests and could only think of how if I took a commission, I'd be screwed if someone didn't model the right things for me to buy and use. It made me feel like a sort of artistic leech. (Disclaimer: this is not to say that Poser art isn't legitimate or that photo manipulation isn't art or demanding photographers sew clothes, I'm just saying that what I was doing didn't feel fulfilling to me specifically). Looking at my oldest posted work from '10 I saw that my attempts at drawing had been largely held back by a refusal to practice and a fixation on making finished work. In hindsight it would be like a musician learning two chords and deciding to go on stage. So I decided to voluntarily cut myself off from my output source so I wouldn't feel pressured to avoid risks. I've learned a lot and (more importantly) learned more about what I need to learn. I'll be posting again but for now I'm going to avoid going back into DAZ Studio and focus on my drawing and cartooning. Don't want to fall back into old habits fast.
Pinup Doodle by CaptnLash
Pinup Doodle
Been doodling. Sadly my tablet stylus is busted and I'm just not in a place to justify a replacement at the moment. So I uploaded a doodle with the intent of practicing using the polygonal lasso tool to do flats. I still like the stroke tool in Paint Tool Sai more, but it just suits the way I draw I guess.

Hey yall, I've decided to spend some time bumming around SecondLife for inspiration and time-killing. If anyone wants to chatter, my username is NuttySquirrel3000 (hey, if I knew it's be under my avatar name forever, I wouldn't have picked it now would I?) Still feel free to hit me up.
