My time here on DA has been much more on the comment end of other peoples work as compared to the posting of my own work. I have attempted to cultivate a level of conversation with many different artists on here in many different mediums because I find their works inspirational. This has ranged from photographers to sculptors, inkers to pencil artists, cosplayers to character designers, the list goes on. This year has marked a difference from past years as I find myself actually trying to help donate money into various projects that artists are launching.
The most recent example has been comic entitled "5th Capsule". It is fresh and different from what I normally read, but it taps into something that everyone enjoys the feel of, youth. Not to be outdone by youth, I also intend to dump copious amounts of money at whenever he gets around to allowing people to do that for his phenomenal work that is "Sunstone".
Beyond all this... I want to start something that I can focus more of my creative energies at. Guild Wars 2 has been fun in creating characters and letting me interact with and meet new people from not just around the country, but the world as well. I don't want to just sit and make characters to play with though, I want to make something that other people would want to interact with. I have many stories in my head that I would love to get out in one way or another, writing or drawing a comic I know not which yet, but I HAVE TO GET IT OUT of my head cause as enjoyable as I think it is, it's no fun keeping it all to myself.
The greatest joy I have experienced as an artist so far, was 3 years ago when I was taking art classes. A piece I did was selected for viewing at the end of semester art review. Thousands of pieces were submitted and only 60-70 were selected, mine being one. To me, that was fun and awesome at the same time. Given the opportunity, who wouldn't want to try to experience that again?
