What comes after giving up by gomas-sketches
What comes after giving up
Ok so it's been a very very long time since I did any type of digital art (or art in general). I no longer have Photoshop so I decided to install GIMP (wasn't too fond of the program my Wacom tablet came with). To start on the easy side I went on the easy colouring someone else's free lineart with lovely dodge, burn and smudge! I tried to create a time lapse of this which I will post on youtube (if I figure out how to due this...). As obvious my background skills are pretty bad but I didn't want to go for anything complex, just playing around with brush settings.

This lineart is by :iconelsouille:

Yeah. I live. In fact I live quite a busy life now, neglecting the art bit that used to be such an important part of my life when I had the time I wanted to do what I wanted. I've now graduated. I've moved to Scotland where I started my work as a veterinary surgeon. Between out of hours, night calls and shifts from 8:30am to 7pm there's not much time left in the day and whatever is left is used for house chores (haha I'm lying, I actually just play games like Guild Wars 2 or Skyrim or whatever I'm in the mood for, or otherwise I'm completely useless or end up reading technical stuff about work). However I've decided I would get a new tablet, which I'm still trying to get the hang of (much preferred my previous Wacom, so much better grip). I also ended up downloading GIMP since Photoshop is too expensive for the use I give it at the moment and my previous version doesn't work. So also trying to get the hang of that. I decided to try to get some time lapses of my very regressed art, which I'll try to post on youtube (if I find a nice video editor). I started easy with some premade linearts and some colouring work, just to get back on tracks. But I've been dying to do some Guild Wars 2 art, except I get so disappointed with the beginning of it that I don't want to carry on :( Oh well I guess practice makes perfect hey?

Sorry for neglecting everyone, though I still come around and have a look at people's art and at my gallery and end up thinking "I want to go back to being able to do this stuff!".

I'm basically an art lover, I like pretty things =3 My favourite style is realism and I like exotic, fantasy scenes.
When it comes to music I hear a bunch of different music styles, from hard rock to classic music.

Oh my... It really flatters me that you have aske me this... but I don't know if I can compromise :S You see, I'm very busy with university and I'm not on an art school (if I were I'd have the "will power" to draw xD). So I actually don't come to DA very often, I spend a lot of time without doing anything art-related...
I don't know, I don't feel secure with this responsability, I don't want to do art because I "have to"... Plus you pay with points, so that adds more responsability to it :S
If you can find someone else that you also like and that is willing to do the job I think it's a benefit for all :)

Just saw it now, lol.
I think that's also a very good idea :) You design something you'll love for sure and it's good practice ^^ And it's free xD
