I was thinking to myself this afternoon that I'm not a really good artist.
There, I said it. I've had a few drawings here and there that have really blown me away, but they come very far and few between. I'm sure just looking at my gallery that you'll know what I'm talking about. If I'm drawing on a regular basis, there might be a few that come out and are just - WOW! But I don't have the time to spend on them that I used to. I think I've mentioned this before, I'm not happy with my drawings as a whole because I know I could do better, but even at my best, others do soooo much better than me that I tend to get discouraged.
So then maybe I'll turn to painting, but same thing exists there. I see what someone else has painted and I can't compare. But, then again, I do enjoy doing figure painting and small models, and even though there are people who are good at that, I do a fairly reasonable job, so I'm at least content with my talent there. I don't do a whole lot of it obviously, again, it's time consuming and I don't have as much time as I used to.
Then there's my photography. You've seen quite a bit of it over the last few years just because I have more time to take pictures then I do to draw pictures. I hope I haven't lost too many followers because I've switched from doing strictly anime stuff to trying to branch out to other things. I've been featuring some of my photography on my own personal blog, so check that out if you're interested. I tend to ramble on a bunch more in my blog than I do even here (if you can believe it!) And I have breakdowns of certain "pony" projects as well as household stuff that I do if you're into that sort of thing.
I've tried not to stick entirely to photography, even though I do know there are so many photographers on dA...and so many more that are better than me. I crack that up to the fact that I take most of my photos on a little 12.1 mega pixel camera as opposed to a DSLR or some other fancy and expensive camera. That's my choice...plus I'm sort of cheap. ^_^; Heck, I don't even have a smart phone, so I don't post photos from my phone... you wouldn't want to see those anyway, I think it's like 2 megapixels or something. Hah!
But I will say, that I'm a fairly competent amateur photographer. I'll print out my photos and hang them on the wall and if I don't get tired of looking at them after awhile, I figure that's worth something. So I hope you'll be just as willing to look at my photos from time to time as well. If you're interested in buying one, I'd love it! But you can also save them and use them as desktops too, and I hope you'll enjoy what I post, whatever it is, in the upcoming months.
