Dear Deviants, thanks for all the support once again
I lost the plot a bit towards the end of last year. I just couldn't see any reason to keep drawing. My plan to draw for a living was proving just as boring and annoying as any other job. Looking back I realise I haven't drawn anything or visited deviantart now in 5 months. I got heaps of positive comments back then when I had my big winge, but I didn't want to hear them. I was just over it.
But I'm back again. My computer completely died in the heatwave recently (at least I didn't get burned to death or flooded like half the rest of Australia). I had a backup of my artwork but everything else was lost, so I got a new and improved PC and started messing with photoshop, rebuilding all my brushes, and suddenly I was in the middle of a new picture.
I don't think I'll ever get the enthusiasm back that I had when I started out, but I do still enjoy the creative process, and I think when inspiration strikes I will continue to paint.
My apologies to all the people who asked questions of me while I was absent that were left unanswered, I will begin working through them now in an attempt to catch up again.
I hope you will continue to enjoy my artworks, that's all they're there for.
