A catch-all dumping ground for art, sketches, and miscellany.

Weird year.

I got back into painting this year, which was really nice. I also started inking traditionally a lot more and totally slacked on digital painting, which is… probably fine? Working digitally is a lot more tiring for me physically and coloring is especially taxing.

Not shown here, but I started playing around with calligraphy pens, which are really awesome even if I haven’t managed to write in anything other than gothic script.

I got more comfortable with backgrounds and drawing characters actually interacting. I think it was obvious in the fact that advent this year ended up being way more ambitious. These are two things I’ve been struggling with for a really long time, so measurable improvement in these areas are probably the highlights of the year. :>

Anyway, I’ll be at IKKiCON in Austin this weekend! First show of the year. Come see me!
