extended absence

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.

Cheers,
Jesse

Yeah I tend to become a hermit when I get a bit down. Will try to get back into the community spirit on here now though,
Cheers,
Jesse

um... well i don't know any demons that might be around for a photoshoot, but... maybe we'll catch up via email...

or you could MSN or something so this way you could vent directly at someone :|

seriously, drop me a line, want to know what's been going on.

hehe, thanks mate. I don't seem to vent easily, probably been living alone for too long, but I tend to just slowly work through my shit in my head. If I talk to people about it before I've got it clear in my head I end up in these massive rhetorics that go round and round as we both try and sort out things that we don't fully grasp. I usually end up talking rubbish, then finally figuring out what I was trying to decipher a month later, then I have to go back and say, "hey, ya know all that shit I was rambling on about? yeah I was completely wrong-". And I hate being wrong ;) Maybe not the best approach, as it hasn't been entirely successful...

well, i will call you on that and still give you the opp for chatting, even if it isn't venting based!

sometimes talking it out loud just helps getting it sorted out, so, you never know!

I know that feeling, and the only thing I can say is good luck. It can be challenging finding the drive and the motivation to keep going, but sometimes it helps to look back and see where you've come from and to just imagine where you might end up. It works for me sometimes.

Anyway, good luck, and good to see you around here again. :)
